I'd say work with the render blending with the banners. And in some of them, where's the flow? Work more with text and fonts, too. ;o

Click here.

I've told you before, see some tutorials. Your only improving about 0.1% on each banner you make. See some tutorials, and just try one or two out. The more you try, the better you'll get, and then you'll be able to do amazing banners without tutorials.

Just click on my message, click on forums above, and go to either Official Tutorials, or User Submitted Tutorials. (http://www.gimptalk.com/)

I still like them, personally. I mean others may not agree, but I see a great talent in the near future. All I have to say, is keep working at it, k? xD

I also have to agree with TayyabX. Tuts are your friend, but don't let that stop you from eventually creating your own unique style.

Don't post a gallery if you can't take criticism.
I'm not going to "bum you out" with my critique, but I will give you some advice:
Use some different backgrounds, and when you do motion blur, adjust the hue! You still get that nice blur effect with color shades, but you can make your banner have more of a red, or blue theme, a LOT easier. And try using some gradient maps, they add a good overall shade to your banner, and make it flow a lot better.
Oh, and use some text effects as well. Simple black or white text isn't helping the look of your banners. :| Maybe add just a simple border around it, or just some different colors would help. I would suggest using C4D's as well. You can find some good ones on Planetrenders.net. Just search Morbidsheep, he has some really nice ones. You just paste it on your banner, set it to lighten, or screen, and erase from the main part of your banner, and it makes it look amazing.

Sorry for dubble post.

New banner,

Finnaly took TayyabXs advise and attempted to follow a tutorial. I messed up alittle on the render but all in all i think it looks farly good.

For the Pikachu and Pichu banner, you should lessen the black border. It hurts my eyes. <33

I think it is pretty good. You def. have some talent.

If you really want some C+CC or whatever, than I have a small suggestion for one of the banners:

http://i564.photobucket.com/albums/ss85/jessah6229/Rose.png

The background and her don't seem to go along with each other, IMO. She just seems to stick a little out from the background, more than is needed. I could be wrong *shrug* It's just my opinion and we all have different tastes when it comes to art. Keep on improving, this is good stuff :D Like this:

http://i564.photobucket.com/albums/ss85/jessah6229/banneredit.png

That looks nice and the Pikachu banner caught my eye...your future art should be even better :)

okay, first of all:

ZOMGwatagurlsbannas

Secondly:

These banners, I notice a common link between them. Now, there is nothing wrong with this, but for some it can get to be bothersome to see repetition in banners. that is the little rays that descend from random points at the top of the banner for a light source. Try to make some banners with alternative means for a light source, you see what I'm saying..?

http://www.gimptalk.com/forum/full-signature-tutorial-t5880.html-sid=12fd2cfca847ccb0e3d9778068955721

But at least i tried it. And at least i attemted it, i dont understand gimp talk im not, very use to it, I didn't understand some of it.
Or maybe i should just give up. Nothing i do with gimp seems to be "right"
And i didn't do some of it like the subtext and stuff. And to me he wasn't that clear. Also i didn't use the brushes that he used because he didn't give the link to the brushes.

Why dont you pick me out some tutorials.

It's pretty rad, I like it. You see, you're getting better. Just imagine how you'd turn out if people were breathing down your neck about your banners, though. You'd probably be like Tombi Anastasia-R, or Neo Pikachu (though with all three, it'd still take some time. But even still you seem like you've only just begun and you're this good, you'll have people crawling to you and begging for you to make them a banner for their sigs in not time).

Major Crit:

Don't make the background then put the render on top. Make the background with the render. Make it blend.

Minor Crits:

-Add some flow
-Add some depth
-Experiment with different styles
-Use different text

I think that is one of your best yet. I might add a little something to the right hand side, since it seems a tiny bit plain there, but even without it it looks sweet :D You keep improving with every banner you make, it seems...

Some PS tutorials CAN be used for GIMP too, as they have almost the same tools. I no longer use GIMP (Photoshop CS4 now <33), so these may or may not help you. But I occasionaly still look through GIMPtalk incase something pops up that I can do xD

Here are some tutorials that may or may not help you:

Simple Vector Tutorial (http://www.gimptalk.com/forum/curly%CA%B9s-vector-sig-tutorial%C7%83-t6373.html-sid=dd4f87376a6faab9c2dbd2e3ae980a2e)

Image to text (http://www.gimptalk.com/forum/3-ways-to-put-an-image-in-your-text-t163.html)

these are only a few.
browse through, you don't have to try them all.

Even read the complicated tutorials to understand how it is achieved and whatnot, and how they did this and that.

Hmm, the edges look a bit weird, you may want to remedy this by not having white borders as it blends in with the forum default skin, and you still have the copypasted look, but I think it's cool and stuff.
