This is to act as a central point for the requesting, suggesting, and possibly voting on potential logos for projects related to Wii homebrew. Needless to say, all images must be released under an acceptable free license (it will be included in a GPLv2 program) and contain no copyrighted imagery. Each request can be thought of as a "contest". Be sure to spread the word to anyone you think would be interested about current contests!

Many users appear to be coming here to submit artwork, bypassing the Introduction, and aren't familiar with how to use a wiki. If you are a user who wants to post some artwork but cannot figure out how, the following articles will be very helpful:
- Wikipedia Editing Cheatsheet
- How to edit a page (To learn how to do something, search this page)
- Upload images here (Register before doing this)
- How to Link to Uploaded Images
- Please use .png if possible.
Try your best to follow existing formatting, but if you can't do it someone will fix it for you.
Be sure to add usernames in alphabetical order and pictures in order of release.
Because this page is receiving such large amounts of traffic not related to the rest of the wiki, it is exempt from the Loose Rules and offending users will not be penalized. That said, the page still needs to be constantly checked and fixed for common errors. Some of the most common have been:
- Not adding new usernames and entries according to alphabetical order
- Irregular capitalization and grammar. Just follow standard rules of US English grammar.
- Pictures not linked correctly
- (Add any others)
Please fix these problems when you see them.

<marcan> [...]remember this is an animated thing and we're still figuring out the format
<marcan> so make sure you keep the .psd files or whatever in separate layers, since the banners are composed of multiple objects.
<marcan> just keep in mind two things
<marcan> 1) whoever wins will have to work with me on the final version
<marcan> 2) we'll also need a savegame banner, tp hack style, from the winner
The banner is an dynamic animation with sound. It also has a preview banner that appears in the Wii menu when not zoomed in. The format supports scripting and some kind of reading of wiiconnect 24 data. Please make sure that all submissions look cool both with and without widescreen.
Good luck since it's a proprietary format without usable documentation.
Some templates to get you started on designing. These should help give an artistic leg-up until a more applicable solution becomes available.- Trayne
- Gray :
- Blue :
Obviously inspired by Kaktus621's excellent work.
- I doubt I'll do a Youtube for this one, you can imagine the fairies fluttering about. The channel icon could possibly have one fairy just trapped in the channel box dotting around too. Maybe two! Fairii is meant to be a pun on the ELF and Zelda connection.
Contest: Homebrew channel music
Separate location from the Homebrew channel banner/art contest. Post music you made or music you think would be good. Ideally it should loop well. Remember all must be under an acceptable free license, don't bother linking/submitting copyrighted stuff.
The Newgrounds Audio Portal would be a good place to look, since all music there is the music is free to use (from being released under a Creative Commons license), if you want to help.
Surely we need to know the winner of the wii menu banner to be able to compose the correct music for it?
A couple from newgrounds
Just some from newgrounds that I quickly found, idk what kind of flavor it should have but those sound good to me.
Here are just two songs that I made see if you like it.
Contest: Zelda Chainloader (FINISHED)
Contest: General Homebrew
<segher> the logo should at first glance refer to our homebrew stuff, not just to the game
<MadCatMk2> Just a quick recommendation: I think the logo should be rather simplistic, so as smaller versions are easily recognisable.
This contest is now open!
A lot of the less-specific entries into the Zelda Chainloader contest would be good candidates for the General Homebrew logo.
With blurry reflections.
has the wii in the background (i realize you can see a faint witness on the edges of the blue sun but shhhhhhhhh!)
