Well... I've decided to start this thread again O_o;. My banners are pretty terrible, so I'd really like some advice on how to better them. I use PS 7, and most of what I've done is just messing around with stuff.

Ryuk (This one is pretty plain, but I like it enough) (http://i73.photobucket.com/albums/i213/Kuro-Pengin/ZenxBanner.jpg)
Roy: Ignited (I like this one okay) (http://i73.photobucket.com/albums/i213/Kuro-Pengin/RoyBanner-1.jpg)
L: Mesmerize (This is the best one I've done so far) (http://i73.photobucket.com/albums/i213/Kuro-Pengin/LBanner.jpg)
Roy and Ed (I'll add text to this one day) (http://i73.photobucket.com/albums/i213/Kuro-Pengin/FMABanner.jpg)
Sasuke: For Z-chan (The first banner I ever made) (http://i73.photobucket.com/albums/i213/Kuro-Pengin/ZsBanner.jpg)
Byakuya Kuchiki (Oh god... this one is terrible) (http://i73.photobucket.com/albums/i213/Kuro-Pengin/ByakuyaBanner.jpg)
Miyavi (This one came out pretty good... it was so hard to render it >_<) (http://i73.photobucket.com/albums/i213/Kuro-Pengin/Japanese%20Stars/Miyavi/MiyaviBannercopy.jpg)
T.M.Revolution (No comment) (http://i73.photobucket.com/albums/i213/Kuro-Pengin/Japanese%20Stars/TMRevolution/TM.RBanner.jpg)
Zelos Wilder (My most recent one... it's pretty crappy >_<). (http://i73.photobucket.com/albums/i213/Kuro-Pengin/Tales%20of%20Symphonia/Zelos%20Wilder/ZelosBanner-1.jpg)

Ryuk : Not my style. But for who likes the style I think it's good.
Roy : Very good. FMA is my favorite anime. The flames look a little like Dungeons & Dragons(cart00n) and that's good.
L: Mesmerize : Beautiful and Relaxing.
Roy and Ed : The 2 white gloves made me a little confused.
Sasuke: For Z-Chan : Good, try to add more effects to the light.
Byakuya Kuchiki : Not your fault, drawer's fault.
Miyavi : I particularly don't like real people in af.com sigs, but I think people who like it will like this sig.
T.M.Revolution : Same as Miyavi, at least looks cleaner.
Zelos Wilder : Very good. Horizontal text would be better.

My favorite: Roy
Congratulations for always using the same size.

Hey, would you make me a FMA sig??

Thank you for your feedback ^^!

I will gladly make you a siggy =D! Do you have a particular image that you want?

11-14-2007, 09:26 AM
Very nice Sig. Do you have any Char Attack?

11-14-2007, 01:17 PM
Eeeee, I like your siggies. n_n;

11-14-2007, 03:02 PM
Wooooo! Pingu's made a siggy thread >>W<<!
Ryuk: Like the text and background <3
Roy: I dont want to mean but..i dont really like it ^-^;; i love the background and everything, but the character, it doesnt match up with the text and background
L: Ohmigosh! It's L! >W< love that set hehe, Hmm i dont really think that yellow glow effects matches with the background, i think you should try light blue glowing effect x]
Roy and Ed: now im loving this set, i love everything about it
Sasuke: You're pretty good for your first banner, i love it. especially the image you used.
Byakuya: This one?! you think this one is terrible?! Yeah right haha, this one is AWESOME! Love the brush you used >>W<<
Miyavi: -squeee- miyavi >>W<<
Tm.R: Love the soft outer glow for this one >3
Zelo: Errr is it called A Yummy Apology font? LOL i dont reallii like it ^-^" it doesnt match up.

But anyways, these are my own opinions, dont take it by heart =D Keep it up Pingu!

Okay ^^! I already have that pic, though X3! And it's bigger too XD! I'll go off and make it a render tonight.

11-14-2007, 10:42 PM
for this one

I really liked the way that fire is just there so perfectly do you do yourown extaction???

anyway i was think that this could be really good but with a more detailed background like spotted or brushed

I was think about the ed and roy also but it really good already they all are just wondering about the roy one sorry for one of my longest post LOL

I didn't do that extraction ^^;. The only renders I've done are the T.M.R one, the Miyavi one, the L one, and the Zelos one.

11-15-2007, 09:43 AM
This one is actually pretty good!
Try to add some effects like on the L signature (on the left bit of teh L sig)
hm.... the size bugs me at some point, but meh xD
Make the b/g more reddy. or gradient Dark Blue to lighter dark blue (like that makes sense >.>;;
and add some good lightings while youre at it :3
Roy looks a bit oversharpened..
and.... thats pretty much it.
The current b/g is quiet nice!

Akihiko Yamamoto Hozagaki
11-18-2007, 02:57 PM
Yeah, now that I look at that... I did over sharpen it O_o;. I'm going to start following tutorials ^^! Some people have really good ideas o.o.
