Check it out, peeps

Yup, you asked for it, I have it. =D I got a couple of requests on how I did this one, so here it is.

I didn't make it too detailed this time, so knowledge of Photoshop is required.

Oh yeah. xD

Okay, great. =3

Not sure how it'll go on GIMP, seeing as I don't use it, but I think it'll be okay. xD

There it is, Gemma. XD Horrible, isn't it? I suck at this. *no potential whatsoever*

But it was a good tut :] Very simple, easy for my mind to comprehend.

You must be kidding me Alana.. *Slaps Alana "Snap out of it"*

That is amazing.. A huges improvement from your last banner.. Probably better then any banner I've made...

Did Kayla help you?

No, she was making muffins... ._.

Thanks, I guess. xD But I don't think it is better than your banners, I am still such a newbie to graphic arts. I just stalk the section :X don't really participate.

Can't wait to see your outcome. 8D

Oh lookie! Alana you made one. =3 Only problem...I can't see the text too well. xD

I even mentioned that in the tut briefly. But otherwise, awesome job. ^^

I am adding it to the first post! *adds*

The tutorial was lovely. =D
(Although I don't have Photoshop or GIMP, I followed the tutorial as closely as possible and I think the result is rather pleasant to look at.)

Serious? o_O I didn't think it was that spectacular, especially since I only spent about a third of the time on it than what it normally takes me to make a banner... Less is more then?

Then again, it's a lot easier following a guide than figuring what to do by yourself. :O


Regardless, great tut Gem, and thanks. ^_^ Makes me want to hunt down some more tutorials to try and learn from.


P.S. Yours turned out cool too, Seq. 8D

Wow, ya'll did great with this tut.

I, er, did not fair so well. Its either my skills or the subject matter (I'm going to say its what I was working with and continue to try this tut out w/different pics and different styles :P )

I still need to follow this. @-@ *does so*

I saw them guys live. Good band, but after a couple of songs you get a bit power metal'd out. x_X

Dragoness; I love the brushing on the first banner and the composition of the second. They're lovely.

Tombi; I agree. Although I love the band, some of the songs sound the same after a while.

Okay, uh... I lacked grunge/abstract brushes so I used splatters... and it looked plain without gradient maps so I used a couple... and then I got all paranoid about a light source so I added one of those... along with clipping masks to make it look fuller.

So I followed it but I didn't. Sorry, Gem. xDD

Thank you, Seq. ^^ Your banner looks cool!

Yeah, of course it is, Emma. Look at it! Oo I'd so use that in my sig. xD Tuts are always the best way to learn new things. I follow Cait's quite a lot. 83

Nice job, Dragoness. You made awesome banners, too! ^^ Everyone seems to be pretty good at this. I need to make a harder one now. xD

Oh, Cait... *shakes head slowly* xD Well I did say you can add SOME things, but I don't know if that's actually following the tut. x3

Alright, sounds good. ^^ I'll see if I can make one again pretty soon. I still have to do that Finding Nemo one...

Also, does anyone wanna know how to make a userbar? ^^ They're easy and look great! *points to sig*

Nah, it's okay. Everyone has things they like, yours just isn't this by the sound of it. xD
