Intro:

Welcome to my Graphics Gallery. I'm not the most experienced banner maker out there, but I do what I can.
I generally use the same style, but occasionally I try to mix it up a bit.
I only add ones that I like. My banners go from newest to oldest. I welcome CnC. Enjoy.

I really like your Smeargle tag, and it is probably one of your best yet. I really like how you tried to make a light source, but you don't wanna use those kind of brushes. Something simple, soft, round brush at maybe 50-75 percent opacity. You could make it stretch as far to Smeargle's face, even. But to add more depth, play around with the dodge and burn tool, to create better lighting/shadows.

Keep it up~

Thanks, AS.

I used a Soft Brush, actually. The thing is, I failed to lower the opacity on it. Which made it seems a bit bright.

I'll try that Dodge/Burn tool Depth trick on my next banner.

Just a header for something running in ASB. Sam told me to make one for it, so I jumped at the offer since I didn't know what else to make. :/

I don't particularly like the PMD Part, but he told me to add something like it in there, so I did. :3

The only thing I don't care for is the bright, neon green light source. It's a bit eye-hurting. Nice job on it, though.

I think I have those same floral brushes that are on the blue and green banners o.O Or at least ones that are really close to them.

I like 'em all! Their pretty good. The AAOC one really caught my eye--not overly complex and really pretty. The "AAOC" is hard to read, still an awesome banner though.

@Your newest add: Cool! I don't normally like grids, but the one you put on him is alright, IMO. Like the border too, it's a style I seem to be seeing a lot of lately =) 'Tis nice

I don't have much critique atm, but keep experimenting. You're rather good at this :happy:

And yeah, after I posted the AAOC one, I noticed that the text was hard to read. Which is why I'm making a new one now. x3

Not really interest in crits. Just a time waster, and it didn't come out well. :/

More banners. :/

The Blissey one was made from ragnajacob's tutorial. And made the Gogeta one from boredom.

The first one was done from a tut. :P

And Gogeta... it would just look like a render placed on a blank canvas if that wasn't there. :/

I like the blue one. :]

The green one is also pretty radical, but the brightness you have on his head kind of drowns out the detail of his face and the pretty coloring you did on his eyes.

Banner of the Week Entry.

It's a bit hard to see, but if you follow the surrounding white shine, it makes the outline clear.

I also deleted a few banners I didn't like. My gallery seems a lot smaller now. x3

Ditto. I like the blue one the most--the green one comes in second.

As for the newest one, it looks cool. Not sure if I like it B&W though.

I really like this one. The lighting looks nice around his arms but I think you should tone it done a bit near his face because it takes the focus away imo. But it's a really nice signature.

So liek, Those Cloud Strife banners were cool, and that one you did that lokks kinda like edward elric (Not totally sure who that is.) But then the pokemon up to about Noctowl weren't as good. Theres a good graphic artist in you, man. I see it. xD

Yeah, the only ones I liked were the Noctowl and Primape. Maybe if I kept making graphics instead of doing them once every two weeks I'd actually improve. o:
