•Moomanmatt:
Came to the forum at the same time as Ncio and closely followed by Kapricon. The art forum was slowly drifting away but a few more active members assed to the community got it rolling again. His first thread was “Ncio and Moomanmatt’s Digital Art”. He then went on to discover Dragon Art and help new artists find their feet. Now he is the creator of create!

•Ncio:
Improved fast from using Paint.net to GIMP in a matter of weeks he was soon at a high standing point of respect and ability in the forum. He has worked and is working with the likes of Aldrin and is currently churning out extremely good signatures and avatars.

•Kapricon:
Yet another devoted to Dragon Art and one of the first to join create. Onwards and upwards using Photoshop CS4. Maintains a high quality standard to all her work. Proves that girls are on here after all!

•Aldrin:
One of the most highly respected members of the forum and arguably the best avatar maker on the site. Inspiring many (possibly too many) to make their own threads. Some succesful, for instance Ncio’s, who is his current partner. He has worked also with people like Laxaria.

moonmanmatt, you didn’t sign up properly.

I know you requested a lock for DRAGON Art, but you should sign up again before having the empty slot to create a group. Read please the rules here.

Anyway, if you sign-up there now, you will still have the slot. That’s why I’m not locking this one, but if you don’t sign up soon, and another user takes the empty slot, I’ll have to do it.

If you ignore this message I’ll have to lock this thread, so, please, sign-up properly :)

EDIT:

Also, Checkmark didn’t steal your spot, he is just being sarcastic, he requested a reocurring contest slot, so you still have time :)

second example – bit big

those will do

Also both stop this little argument okay? When I post art instead of saying that sucks give constructive criticism and I will try to improve. Without help it is very difficult. Just cuz someone doesn’t immediately improve that doesn’t mean they are not doing so slowly

Look above =D
I conpletly understand if you don’t use it. Lotsa empty space :P

Very nice, but a few problems. The bottom text doesn’t look too great, non-antialised? Nice and simple though maybe slightly too minimal. Good effort. I will see what other’s think before changing it to the official banner.
