TEH BANNER CONTEST OF DOOM!!!

Info

Welcome to Teh Banner Contest of DOOM!!! I am your host and judge, Daughter of Mew! As approved by the pwnsome HKim, this banner contest will require skill, knowledge of your program, and of course, some banners!

If you join, you will have to face many horrible tests. One person per round will die be eliminated, as well as any other entrants who fail to get your banner in on time. And, no, not all the rounds will be Pokemon-based.

Your banners will be based on this scheme:

Creativity: [How different is your banner? Is it really unique, or maybe just a background with a picture?] #/10
Quality: [Your banner has to be good, or you won't get far here!] #/10
Theme: [How well does your banner go with the theme set?] #/5
TOTAL: #/25

I will also give a comment about your banner.

Rules

No matter whether you love or hate them, you have to follow them! You don't want to be eliminated now, do you?

-Follow ALL PE2k rules!
-Use proper grammar, I like to read the posts!
-No art theft, or requesting your entry from a shop!
-You have a whole week to finish your entry. Don't rush! ^^

Entrants

There's 10 places! Reserving is allowed. And I may make more spaces, if I need to.

Round 1 Results

http://www.iaza.com/work/080814C/Flareon_banner13773.png

What can I say? It's a nice picture, a nice background. And it's simple. The text in the corner gives it a nice feel, too. But you could have done more with it, and the picture looks a bit sharp against the background. But it matches the theme perfectly.

Creativity: 6/10
Quality: 8/10
Theme: 5/5
TOTAL: 19/25

Shadow Lucario8
http://i36.photobucket.com/albums/e40/Shadow_Lucario/Banners/Leafeon667.png

While the background is done well, and the picture matches the theme and banner, I don't like the diagonal corners. But I feel that the drop shadow, which doesn't fit many banners, fits this banner perfectly. But it kinda reminds me of this (http://i286.photobucket.com/albums/ll88/Daughter_of_Mew/Banners/Other/ps4now.png) banner...

Creativity: 5/10
Quality: 8/10
Theme: 5/5
TOTAL: 18/25

Fire_and_Dissapear
http://i224.photobucket.com/albums/dd128/koeiman11/PKM1-3.png

The effects you used really fit this banner, and you chose the picture well too. But the text isn't that visible, and I don't think the font fits the banner...

Theme: 5/5

Uomo

Nice use of the grid. And you recoloured the Leafeon, that's good. But I don't like Sigourmi Art myself...

Theme: 5/5
TOTAL: 20/25

anastasiar
http://img292.imageshack.us/img292/4525/jbanneryx7.png

Once again, I like the grid. It has nice effects, too. But the Jolteon in the picture looks weird... Still, it's cool.

Creativity: 9/10
Quality: 9/10
Theme: 5/5
TOTAL: 23/25

PokePod1

No banner? Shame...

Azurai Wolf

Wow. Just, wow. I love all of it. No crit or anything...

Hihi
http://i266.photobucket.com/albums/ii248/jelloHi/Glaceoncontest-1.png

It's way too blurry. And I can see a white aura around the picture. But it has nice effects...

The shiny hunter
http://i323.photobucket.com/albums/nn447/Meh95/Lefeonbanner2.jpg

It's very... pixel-y. And you saved it as .jpg. And, the star doesn't look good on that banner...

Although the picture has a white aura thing around it, I think that the way that you put the banner in two parts is clever. You could have done a bit more with it, though.

Hrm, I know it's not a crop. Don't worry about that. You used a good amount of effects, and the placement of the image in it is good. But you could have done more with it in a non-effect way. :P
