Like the Oldale Shrine (http://www.pokemonelite2000.com/forum/showthread.php?t=4315) with my drawings, this graphics thread has banners exclusively for my current fan fics, Hoenn Mirror World (http://www.pokemonelite2000.com/forum/showthread.php?t=1670) and Hoenn Mirror World II: The Lost Stones (http://www.pokemonelite2000.com/forum/showthread.php?t=3406). All banners were made in Paint, just to let you know. Feel free to use the banners for whatever, but make sure you mention me somewhere because I'm the one who made them...well, sorta... You get what I mean.

The first banner for HMW. The background is a bit of an overview map of the Hoenn region that I found on a site (that I've forgot the name of :sweat:). The sprites of the mirrors were from Kirby's Rainbow Resort (http://www.classicgaming.com/kirby/) and edited a bit by me with the Pokeballs from PE2K's site (which were edited as well to match the mirror's colors). Finally, the Mariah sprites were made by Matthew. Thanks, Matt! Even though the colors are a bit off, it's so good that I don't care. :silly:
Made on Thursday, May 6.

The second banner for HMW. This time around, the background (which is the background of the main mirror room from "Kirby and the Amazing Mirror") was from Kirby's Rainbow Resort (http://www.classicgaming.com/kirby/). The sprites of the berries came from PE2K, and the character sprites are made by Matthew. :happy:
Made on Wednesday, June 16.

A banner of Rustboro Ruins. The Roxanne sprite was from PE2K, and the Nosepass one was from Pokemon Forever. For some reason, the Nosepass sprite from PE2K had pink around it, but oh well. The background of Radish Ruins was from Kirby's Rainbow Resort (http://www.classicgaming.com/kirby/), and the badge sprite was taken from Wraith10's Pokemon Ruby and Sapphire Page (http://www.wraith10.megadoomer.com/pokemonrs/index.htm).
Made on Thursday, June 17.

A banner of Dewford Cavern. Same technique for the Rustboro Ruins one applies here. Background is Cabbage Cavern.
Made on Friday, June 18.

Same technique used for this one. Background is for the Carrot Caslte boss battle.
Made on Friday, June 18.

Same technique, different style. Also a personal favorite of mine. It was a bit of a challenge separating the twins, but as you can tell, I pulled it off. I admit it DOES seem out of order to work on this after the Mauville Palace one, but it's pretty nice, huh? Background is Candy Constellation.
Made on Friday, June 18.

Mustard Mountain's background seemed very appropiate since Flannery trains fire types and Mariah and the gang spent most of chapter 10 being surrounded by volcanoes while getting the Heat Shard.
Made on Saturday, June 19.

I originally planned to put May somewhere in there, but I doubt that it'll look good without Max and Caroline. I wasn't sure which background of Moonlight Mansion to use, but remembering that most of chapter 11 took place outside the mansion, I decided that the current background would have to do.
Made on Saturday, June 19.

SURPRISE! The background is not from "Kirby and the Amazing Mirror"! It's a background of Grape Garden from "Kirby: Nightmare in Dreamland", a GBA port of Kirby's Adventure. Unlike the previous case with May, I felt that Lyoko should have a place in this particular banner. I originally was going use the background for Peppermint Palace, but it really didn't fit the theme I was going for as well.
Made on Saturday, June 19.

As you can tell, I took a totally different approach in this banner. The background is from Olive Ocean from KatAM. For me, this ranks right up there with the Mossdeep banner.
Made on Saturday, June 19.

More banners coming soon!

Great banners, JIG! They are very interesting because they match your characters' identities perfectly! The backgrounds are also interesting, so that's what really caught my attention.

Thank you, Aley! I'm so glad that you've liked the banners. I may do some more soon.

New banner!
I thought that the background of the one of the final bosses in Kirby and the Amazing Mirror (The first part where you fight Dark Meta Knight) would be appropiate here. You should tell who would be facing who in the next few chapters, but in case you can't...

Lyoko vs Absol (chapter 22)
Cascadia vs Dusclops (chapter 23)
Connie vs Walrein (chapter 24)
Mariah vs Salamence (chapter 25)

So, who's going to be against Metagross? Heh heh...
Metagross merges with Shadow Wing and fights the Mirror Forest Star...who is Mariah.

07-07-2004, 08:44 AM
So, who's going to be against Metagross? Heh heh... wait and see.
OO! OO! Lemme guess! Umm... all of them?

Your sprite-editing techniques are amazing! Keep up the good work!

I didn't do anything to the sprites I've used. That credits goes to Matthew. I just put the banners together with 'em. :redface:

07-15-2004, 01:17 AM
The banners are really cool too! What programs do you use?

07-15-2004, 01:19 AM
I'd expect the ordinary Paint program, but Johto Island Girl really showed the good stuff you could do with the program.

07-15-2004, 01:32 AM
I agree. I suck at Paint >.<.

Hoenn Mirror Girl
07-15-2004, 07:44 PM
Well, I'm glad that you liked them. I use Paint because I'm clueless about Photoshop.

07-15-2004, 07:51 PM
If you have Photoshop you should at least attempt to learn it. It's tons of fun!

07-15-2004, 09:45 PM
Plus, Johto Island Girl, if you had Photoshop, I bet you would do a great job with it with the skills that you're showing off right now. I mean, you practically conquered the Paint program. Why not spend some money on Photoshop. It kicks ass, dude! :cool:

Hoenn Mirror Girl
07-15-2004, 09:50 PM
Thanks. Maybe I'll give it a try one day.

Also, I may do some more banners after my fic is finished.

07-15-2004, 09:56 PM
Sounds cool. When you are taking requests, I'll be sure to request... at least once. :biggrin:

07-15-2004, 10:15 PM
I will too, to see what you're capable of. :wink:

Hoenn Mirror Girl
07-16-2004, 12:21 AM
Well, I don't intend to take request since this thread is exclusively for my fan fic.

So, for requests, I have to say no.

This banner was made for a special occasion: the ending of Hoenn Mirror World. It has been fun writing it and making all the banners, but nothing good lasts forever. While the story may be gone, the art and the banners will not. I'll make some banners for all the five of the final battles as well as a banner for the HMW sequel.

The background is from Kirby: Nightmare in Dreamland, and the sprite of the Mirror Forest Star is made by Matthew. I thought that Mariah's line to close the story would be appropiate.

Anyway, I hope everyone liked the story!

07-22-2004, 06:54 AM
Liked? LIKED?! More like.. LOVED!!!!! You oughta publish it as a book or maybe make it as a movie!! Unless youcan somehow get the drawers of Pokemon's show to draw it for you. :twisted:

And as I read it, I pictured the whole thing going on in my mind! But I imagined Shadow Wing as a black Skarmory with dark energy all around him...

Hoenn Mirror Girl
07-22-2004, 07:34 AM
Thank you, CuteMew. I'm glad you enjoyed my story. I'll admit that it's going to be a bit boring for me now that HMW is over, but that'll mean that I'm free to work on the drawings and banners now. So, you can expect some more art from me!

Hoenn Mirror Girl
07-26-2004, 09:10 AM
New banners! They don't seem like much, but enjoy anyway! :happy:

A new Mariah banner! Not much have changed from the last one except for the background and the addition of Jacrystal. Enjoy!

07-29-2004, 10:04 PM
Heh... JIG... wnat me to make Jacrystal more orange? He is very red here...

Thanks. I'll have do redo the banner again, but I don't mind. Thanks, Matt. ^.^

A new banner! I knew I had to make a banner of Mariah/Mirror Forest Star vs Shadow Wing, and this is it. The background is from part two of the final boss of Kirby & the Amazing Mirror, and the sprite of Shadow Wing is made by Matthew. Enjoy!

08-03-2004, 04:23 PM
Wow those banners are great. keep it up. :biggrin:

Sorry for the place being so dead. Right now I'm waiting for Matthew to make a sprite of Minamo so I could make the first HMWII banner. I'm sure he's working on it... I hope.

But no need to rush the guy, eh?

Nice avatars JIG... but they need borders maybe. Also, I'll get to the sprites soon... just waiting for free time and the mood to do it...

Ladies and gentlemen...
I present to you the first banner for Hoenn Mirror World II: The Lost Stones (http://www.pokemonelite2000.com/forum/showthread.php?t=3406)!

I'm sorry if it seems so sloppy. I originally planned to have the Hoenn legendaries under their respective Mirror Lights, but I didn't have a lot of room.

In case you're interested...

Mariah - Latios/Latias
Connie - Groudon
Cascadia - Kyorge
Lyoko - Rayquaza
Minamo - Jirachi

Hoenn Mirror Girl
09-26-2004, 06:51 PM

A two-for-one with a Minamo banner and avatar! Enjoy! :biggrin:

09-26-2004, 07:00 PM
I can't see the images.

Lyoko Trainer Eyes page!
I might make more of these.

10-25-2004, 05:30 AM
Ooo, I love the Minamo banner and Lyoko Trainer's eye JIG! :3 The avatars are awesome also! :D

Hoenn Mirror Girl
10-25-2004, 05:52 AM
Thanks-nya! I might make some TEs of the others tomorrow or the day after. :happy:

Some more Trainer Eyes, just like I promised.

The latest Mariah banner. The sprite of Mariah's Spirit form was made by BlazikenInferno. Thanks! :biggrin:

Hoenn Mirror Girl
11-24-2004, 04:51 AM
The latest Cascadia banner. The sprite of Cascadia in her Spirit Form was made by Ardella. :happy:

Hoenn Mirror Girl
11-25-2004, 02:13 AM
Lyoko banner! Tee hee!
Lyoko's spirit sprite was done by Ardella.

Hoenn Mirror Girl
11-25-2004, 07:15 AM
More banners! Both Connie and Minamo's spirit form sprites were made by Ardella.

Minamo and Dream Shuffle are great! I don't like Connie too much, because I don't like Groundon.

Hoenn Mirror Girl
11-27-2004, 08:53 AM
Minamo and Dream Shuffle are great!
Thanks. I think those two are even better than the Mossdeep Constellation banner. ^.^

Mirror Mariah banner and avatar set! Enjoy! :biggrin:

Hoenn Mirror Girl
01-16-2005, 06:51 PM
A few sprites I made a while ago out of boredom.

Shadow Mariah's Blaziken

The Golden Gateway

A character that was originally going to appear in a HMW side fic called Dream Shuffle. However, DS got cancelled because of a little incident with a PC member. :susp:

Hoenn Mirror Girl
01-30-2005, 06:47 PM
My latest banner. No Kirby background this time. VCW VicMan's Photo Editor is pretty cool when it comes to background. Enjoy! :biggrin:

01-31-2005, 01:46 AM
Them's yummy, Idies! ^_^

01-31-2005, 02:07 AM
First two are kinda lacking, but the laswt one is pretty cool... considering they are similar to the Render Clouds of PS. Nice sprites (Whoever made them... XD)

Well, you made the Mariah that's with Sceptile, and Mirror Mariah and Shadow Mariah were made with by PC members.

Anyway, thanks for the comment. I have to admit that Mirror Mariah's part could've been a bit better.

Hoenn Mirror Girl
02-08-2005, 06:03 AM
Here's a new banner and ava set, this time of Shadow Mariah. I hope you like it!


02-09-2005, 12:34 AM
Nice job JIG, but one thing.... maybe try adding a 1px border around them. They would look much better :P

Hoenn Mirror Girl
02-09-2005, 12:49 AM
A border? You mean like yours?

Hoenn Mirror Girl
02-11-2005, 10:45 PM
For those who are interested, here's the sprite of Shadow Mariah's Corsola.


Sorry for the lack of her spikes. I can recolor pretty well, but changing the horns is another story.

EDIT: A new Lyoko sprite! It's similar to the one in Dream Shuffle banner except her bow's orange instead of yellow.

And here are two new Trainer Cards. This time of Mirror Mariah and Shadow Mariah (her wings ended up being too big, but whatever). Enjoy!


Hoenn Mirror Girl
02-12-2005, 11:51 PM

Pretty awesome, eh?

Basically, I took Soara's avas of the Hoenn Gym Leaders (found here (http://soara.fc2web.com/poke_aikonh2.htm)) and the level maps (which I had to rip from a Kirby and the Amazing Mirror ROM since, for some bizarre reason, Kirby's Rainbow Resort (http://www.classicgaming.com/kirby/) didn't have them). Then I played around with the Paint Edit plug-in on VCW VicMan's Photo Editor. After that, I want to MS Paint and put in the Pokemon Icons from PE2K as well as the text.

I think these are my best ones yet...even though some of them are sorta funky looking.

02-13-2005, 12:27 AM
The Fonts are difficult to read, but other then that, nice try :silly:

That one is my favourite, I really like the texture of it! :biggrin:

03-31-2005, 09:02 PM
Dang it! Can't belive how dead this thread is! :dazed:

Here's my sprite of Drew.

03-31-2005, 09:40 PM
Cool I didn't know about this well I looked at all your work and I love it all My favs are the avatars there beautiful and I love the sprites great work :wink:

Freshly made Frontier Elite a la Mode (Frontier Brains) avatars! Banners coming soon!

04-28-2005, 09:40 AM
Much better than the gym leaders :P I like how you added the drop shadow, and the texture adds to it, but the thing that still bugs me is the difficulty to read some of the text... eh...

Hoenn Mirror Girl
05-06-2005, 05:26 AM
Yeah, I admit that trying to find the right color for the text gets kinda frustrating.

Two more banners to enjoy!


Hoenn Mirror Girl
05-08-2005, 04:24 AM
Mirror Masters (Elite Four) banner!
Sorta struggled with this one, though...

Hoenn Mirror Girl
05-09-2005, 04:44 AM
Perch Queen Lucy in her mermaid form! I used Kronos's Cascadia sprite for help on this one. Turned out pretty messy toward the end but decent.

Hoenn Mirror Girl
05-15-2005, 10:25 PM
Lyoko stuff (for those that still remember Lyoko)!

Hoenn Mirror Girl
06-04-2005, 03:55 AM
The new HMW banners. I think I like these than the old ones. Hoenn a la Mode is new, though.
