(skipping to things to improve on because it already looks nice)

I think you should avoid putting those small light spots on anything that is in focus most of the time, it takes away from its importance.

Also this is what happens when I go to art school.

I've been into the Ace Attorney franchise lately, and here are two banners I've made.





The pictures weren't of good quality, but it's the best I could get. Thoughts?

I recommend looking for some tutorials. Your banners are ok for a beginner, but it lacks a few things, flow depth and blending. The text is ok but needs some work as well. Your banner has somewhat of a focal but not really due to the many things in the banner. The first one has some food use of matching colors though. Good job.

I'm new to banners myself, but maybe you can try adding a light source of some kind. They seem a little too dark to me.




Spoiler:


This is my third attempt at a banner, and I like it better than the first two. It was my first time working with text, so I'm a little unsure about it. I dunno if it's the font itself or the color, but it seems a little weird to me.

Edit: Forgot to mention, this was my first banner in photoshop. It made a huge difference in what I was able to do.

Well, for that banner, I think you could have done a better job cleaning up the image. Try using a smaller brush size to erase it and zoom in, or just use the magic wand tool and go in after that. (Or use a render that's pre-transparentized, hurr hurr.) Plus, I think you could have picked a better color choice for the text, because it's a little hard to read against the black background. o no

Also, it seems that I was skipped? Sadface.

I like the 2 images you put in that but you could have used slightly better brushes to fit in with what the character is, otherwise it's cool.
I'm not really a beginner at making graphics but i was bored so i thought i would go look at a signature tutorial for beginners to see how the outcome would have been for me and this is what i got:

I would say not bad if a beginner made it and i used the custom GIMP brushes and effects and the only thing i went to get is the Naruto render.

EDIT:
Looks great!
But I don't know what the symbols mean.
The background is a little bit too messy for me.
I like the way you make the naruto. You make his body (clothes) piece per piece, but you remove his actual body.


I'm a beginner and did this. Need C&C to improve.

Did you follow any tutorials?

I think the first avatar and the first signature are your best ones, on the third one i understand what you were trying to acomplish but it's abit too blury.

Jesse, please don't mini mod.

But yeah, Foxamivalth, you need to give CnC to someone who posted before you. We're allowed to ignore you if you don't give some crits to someone.

Sorry for that.
I'm a beginner. So I thought not to give any comment since I myself need comment.
But done, I've editted my post and rate the banner above me.
