The site for embedding images wasn’t working, so I just have the links to mine. These are basically pics I made (signatures/banners) for members in different forums like the official Rush Team forums and BeGone Brotherhood forumotion. Made these all for different people. These were not done in photoshop (obviously) because I’m a noob :D done with pixlr lol
^Should work for embedding.
I’ve never heard of Pixlr and after a quick Google it does seem to be a very nice alternative to Photoshop/GIMP. Since it seems to have most of the functionality of both then I would say you need to blend your text/images in together more. Make it seem less like BG+TEXT+STOCK IMAGE=BANNER and more like BANNER if that makes sense, don’t worry, I rarely do.
Again, as always when I give advice I’ll warn you, there is a strong possibility that what I say is completely wrong and please seek professional help before relying on my opinion. :3 There ~~are~~ used to be a lot of great artists/designers on these forums and they would have better advice.
EDIT: Most of them look nice though.
They look cool to me. This one’s my favorite
probably because of the colors in the BG and the text colors are nice together, and that part where the foliage design is in front of the text, that looks cool.
Next time post what you yourself honestly think of it, it’s always interesting to hear from the creator’s mouth regarding his “works”. (I feel I should put work in "s in case a certain hooligan is lurking around who tends to dislike people using stock images as their own art ‘nd stuff, don’t worry about it) :D
As for my opinion, low quality image ruins it, you can clearly see where you tried to cut the image out (I assume) and overall it domintes the rest of the image too much. Try to put more effort into text effects and focus less on the actual image, also, I’d reccommend running a search for some of the old SOTW threads. SOTW Central also has links to all the older contests, see if you can take some ideas from those.
done with PHOTOSHOP such an improvement hopefully Khunum? ;D
