View Full Version : My first banner!

And my first thread that I have created coincidentally. Well, here it is. Sceptile Banner:
Just to answer a few questions, Yes, I did it on MSPaint. Yes, I used the water lilies picture in the sample pictures folder on my computer. And I don't know why a made the sceptile semi-transparent by removing sections by lines... I just felt like it.
Comments and constructive criticism are appreciated!

Hmmm...... it's not too bad for your first.
Just, next time, don't make the Sceptile transparent with the lines. And the font....... well, the font has to go.

K, I'll edit it a bit. I'll make it so the Font isn't so "Distracting or unseeable"

Finally...A person that doesn't stink at MS Paint...

Nice job. The Sceptile is a bit too hidden under those lines though...

Ok, I redid the banner. Example 1 has the basic sceptile. Example 2 has a sceptile that has been color enhanced with IrfanView.
Example 1:
Example 2:
I prefer Example 2 because the Sceptile stands out against the background.

^_^ NICE!

finally someone who claims to be using iView. :tongue:

I love that program.

I read the "Dying Thread" that had those download suggestions like firefox and stuff.

Yeah. The second one is great. The Sceptile has some white spots around it...Try removing them.

I think that the white spots were grey (or gray, however you spell it) that were turned white because I brightened everything.
