Blashyrkh mighty be your name victorious a kingdom we made
with strength and pride all the way you are at the heart of winter.
The statue watches the kingdom your giant wings make all beneath,
I'm staring forth the raventhrone I know I'm at the heart of winter.

BANNERS GO FROM NEWEST TO OLDEST. OLDEST BANNERS ARE IN NEXT TWO POSTS.
(Ones with little stars beside them are my favourites. :3 Colour stars mean UBER favourites.)

I love your banners,

just one thing.

WTF is Blashyrkh? lol

Tombi
07-07-2009, 09:26 PM
Blashyrkh is a fictional kingdom heavily featured in the lyrics of black metal band Immortal. According to the band's singer and guitarist Abbath, this frozen kingdom was created by the hatred of both himself and Demonaz. It is ruled by a giant raven god called the "Mighty Ravendark". On the album Battles in the North, in the eponymous song, he is referred to as "the Oath of Frost, who sits on the elder raventhrone," and as "the rightful king of the highest halls." He is often represented by various "winterdemons" and other grim servants, including the band members, who do battle in his name against Blashyrkh's enemies and frequently ride down to the south to combat all non-grim and frostbitten things.

;3 Thank you~

Maybe I just don't go to the graphics art department a lot, but these are some of the best (if not the best) banners I have seen in a very long time. Now I know who to come to if I ever need a banner...
The only complaint I have is with the one for Maze, but that's only because I'm afraid of Pyramid Heads.

Okay okay, fine, before I fall further down this bloody list of posts because I keep letting my pride get the better of me, and before I start rubbing it in that I have CS4 while you're stuck on CS3:

I have to say that I don't at all like your banners, because to say that I liked them would be an understatement.

All the CS3 Banners are wicked cool looking. The 7.0 ones are "EH" in comparison, but that is to be expected from a lesser version of the program. the 7.0 Banners are still good for being what they are, and you'd still blow anyone out of the water with it. The advancement to CS3 says that you're about to make everyone else who does banners look like total pansies, if you haven't already. On a note of favoritism: I suppose I would have to favor overall the "Broken" banner as it was a request from me in the Frostbitten Graphics Thread, but of course, so too would be the Hulk Banner from the 7.0 list.

Sorry guys. Due to a dispute with a certain member, three of the people in The Metal Legion happened to get banned for a week.

It's a triumph, don't worry.

Thus, I won't be updating this thread for seven days. When I get back, expect truckloads of banners. :3

I've been making decent looking banners for about... half a year? I've been attempting graphics for like, two years, but I only really learnt properly a little while back.

Thanks. The Broken one seems to be a favourite.

Apparently. Or perhaps they just mis-interpreted it...

Now, may I have a Dragon banner? Dragon themed, pretty. Not a 'restriction' but more of a general want: I would prefer no Pokemon be in it. If you can make it look awesome with Charizard or something in it, then fine, but I was leaning towards real dragons :) Tyvm

Man, Cait, you never cease to impress me. I knew you had talent, but damn... These new banners just blow me away. I think your color schemes are what really tie them together, but I love the creative things you do with the text as well.

If I could pick one word to describe your work, it would be 'amazing'. I hope you don't plan on giving up graphic arts any time soon. xD

Gradients are done differently than in PS. But we can set a Gradient Effect on Overlay Setting.

Nice banners Tombi, but not enough flow, add couple more c4d's, smudging and splatter clip masks. It's great that you learn't not to use scanline patterns and stuff (cos last time I saw most of your sigs covered it patterns)
Oh, and one more thing, make your render blend into the background, smudge or put a c4d/fractal render to enhance the blend.
One last thing, don't be afraid to use stocks in your background and filter it.

It's kinda hard for me to give you more tips, because my work is mainly on photoshop.

So again, nice work

Fine, fine...*cough*

Now, may I have a Dragon banner? Dragon themed, pretty. Not a 'restriction' but more of a general want: I would prefer no Pokemon be in it. If you can make it look awesome with Charizard or something in it, then fine, but I was leaning towards real dragons :) Tyvm (EDIT: Name "Dragoness" on it please)

Old request...NEW request! (since you said "no form" that leaves me the ability to put my request in any shape I want, which I shall full advantage of since your one of the few who don't give a darn about forms)

Ingredients for new request:
-Name "Dragoness"
-Something cool/amazing/eye popping. You don't have to have dragons in it unless you want to...use your imagination on this one. Do whatever it is you wanna do, whether that be characters from Kingdom Hearts or something else entirely. Sit down and make up a design you like or glare at renders until an idea pops out or whatever it is you do to get banner ideas. Just make it look good, from the border to the images themselves :) (and stick "Dragoness" on it!)

The Walrein one's awesome. Reminds me of something I did once for Aqua. BANG. Only way better. Go figure. Best of the bunch? Probably your current sig. Seems the most... Polished.

I see a page with out my hulk avatar on it. This has now been changed.

I will comment on your Wallpaper as only operative has seemed to:

I like it. Now, to further explain why I like it. First, I like the colours. Light Blue and Red work well together, and the cartooniness of the font brings me back to the good days when I drew the words that I wrote. It also adds to the character of the wallpaper, making it enjoyable to look at, and just as well, it's not too bright, it's not over saturated, and it doesn't contrast at all. It all blends in well and it is very easy on the eyes, much like yourself. I also found the white bubbly thing behind the word, as well as the the patterns within the letters to be very cute and charming, that makes it seem lovable for a person of any age that looks at it.

Amazing wallpaper, neechan! I hope to see more in the future! <3

The pen tool? Well...

http://i590.photobucket.com/albums/ss349/Tombi/Tools.png

Those are the settings I use.

http://i590.photobucket.com/albums/ss349/Tombi/MakeAnchorPoints.png

Click on a spot where you want the pen tooling to start. Click a little way away from that in whichever direction you want, hold, and drag to make a little bend or whatever shape you wish.

http://i590.photobucket.com/albums/ss349/Tombi/Makeapath.png

Here it is, zoomed in. Make a path where you want, and remember to click, hold, drag then release.

http://i590.photobucket.com/albums/ss349/Tombi/ChooseStrokePath.png

Make sure that, on the brush tool, you have the right tool selected for the brush stroke. I use 3 px hard brush. :3 Then go back to the pen tool and right click. Select Stroke Path...

http://i590.photobucket.com/albums/ss349/Tombi/StrokePath.png

Make sure it looks like that, and click okay.

http://i590.photobucket.com/albums/ss349/Tombi/EndProductwithSharpening.png

Right click and choose 'Delete Path'. Erase whatever you don't like and sharpen it a few times. :3

The render seems a bit plain and then Radial Gradient'd.

I could be wrong, though.

I'm having a difficult time deciding which banner is my favorite...
I really like the second group of banners, especially the DBZ one and the Pokemon Chronicles one. Almost all of them in that group look fantastically detailed and complex, and your renders are all well picked and coordinated. Honestly I don't even know if what I'm thinking of is called a "render" so forgive me if a lot of this comes out as gibberish.

But, just so this isn't your standard "Hello Tombi I love you you're so great and your banners are so amazing and I love you!" post (I do love you, but that's beside the point :wink:) I'm gonna pop in and try and criticize as much as I possibly can. Ready go!

Let's start with the very first banner (Infernape sprite). The issue I have with this is the simplicity and the standout nature of the sprite itself. Compare it to the render and it looks not only a different resolution, but a completely different style. This is difficult to fix, since sprites are just pixellated and most renders follow a pretty standard style, but I'd suggest doing something to make the sprite feel a little more integrated (which I saw you already started to do) with the rest of the banner. In addition, I feel like there's not much going on in the banner itself. It's just an infernape sitting there with nothing around him. Try adding something to meld the entire banner together.

Onto... Umm... *scrolls through feverishly* Too many good banners, gimme a minute...

The Mario Kart banner I'm also a little on the fence about. What's there is fantastic, but there's not much to look at. The edges of the banner are faded to a standard, semi-dull color, so the only real important part of the banner is the middle, making the sides all but filler.

And I guess the last one I can crit would be the Kyogre sprite one, for exactly the same reasons as the Infernape one. It feels very rough because of the quality of the sprite. Try switching renders (which in "Austin's Graphics Anti-Dictionary" means "Background") or adding different pictures of Kyogre to make the entire thing flow better.

Other than those three, I can't see anything particularly worth criticizing. All the rest are about as good as they could be, however good that is.

Keep up the fantastic work, my dear! <3

RAWR, STEELIX.
I gotta say, it's small, but I like it. The color theme is dark, but suits Steelix. The depth is well made, as well. The focal point is the c4d in front of the render or is the focal point suppose to be the render? I got lost on that, but it's still cool. The border, I've seen before, but interesting. The text is a bit weird to me, but that's just my view. Other then that, I like it. I'll come back another time, I guess. =o

In other news: Your steelix banner. I'm going to have to agree with Ana when I say that your C4D stands out just a bit much. But I guess it's supposed to to make it look like Steelix is coming out from behind it, Amirite? The flow seems a bit out of whack and all over the place, and Steelix's head/jaw seem just a little TOO sharp for my taste. I also believe that you and I should work on some new border styles.. xD But other than that, you're set. You told me over MSN that you used about 6 different gradient maps, I find that to be extremely ninja. So yeah, I've had my 2 cents.

Sooner or later I would eventually comment >3 Love the banners. You're awesome, and your "punk" sprites, although not here, are sweet XD

*Huggling Aggron and Dialga banners* By the way, *pokes Dialga banner* if this is what you do when you're bored, I can only imagine what happens when you focus! XD
