Here's my first try at a good banner. please tell what's good or not and D2, don't hold back


I had to cut all the white from around the kyogre so it took a long time! Most of it came out on paint twith the moving tranparent thing but some of the stuff around it was just like 2 tiny shades different and it didn't come out

Not bad. I would've preferred a better Kyogre, such as this (http://www.pokeschool.com/tcg/scans/newpromos/001.jpg). Yours is pixelly and boring. The background is nice. The border is a little too thick though. The text is fine I guess...it just needs some anti-alliasing, or whatever it's called to make the text smoother. Pretty good for a first try.

LOL,everyone wants to hear your criticisms now! You pretty much summed it all up,so I guess I agree with you.I don't mind the Kyogre,though.It is quite good for a first try banner o.~

It looks pretty nice and smooth...What program did you use to make the banner on? The Kyogre pic is a bit too smooth...

I'd rate it 7/10.
'Cause now I know that it was done on paint,which makes it even better for first try :tongue:

I see...I made a banner with the same pic. O_O

I'd rate it 7 also. It's good for your first Paint Banner.

I like the Rayquaza and Groudon banners alot. The backgrounds are cool and work well with the images :hungry:

i think there great being that they were done on paint.because of that i would give the first one a 7, and both of the seconds 8's. i like tham alot. i think you would have a lot of fun on photoshop, you should get it. o yeah, and where did you get those pics from, just googled?

It has a great background...The only thing that doesn't look good on it is the font of the text. The Kyogre banner font was good. Though these fonts don't look too good...Good job.

I like the Groudon's text. The only thing I don't like about either of them is the pics. You are using the generic pokemon pics. Stray from the ordinary and use more exciting pictures.

sorry if this is harsh.... but out of all the banners, i think this one is the worst. the backround has a whole different theme then the pokemon. In all the others you had water for water pokemon and stuff like that. This one just has a greeen blog. also i would of kept it to the same colors. here you introducesd a whole new color in the backround which really clashes with the pokemon. Better choice on the font tho. i like the font alot. i would give this one a 7/10 for paint.

I've seen that background before. I thought it looked pretty bad. Though I think that banner is pretty good.

Your banners need something different...Something other then a background, pic and border...
