    Wow. I love all of your works, NL.

    The newest one for Mew is really nice. I love the colors and everything. The white border really works well too.

    lol JK, am I leaving? eh sort of; sometimes popping in to post new graphics, but University is going
    to be priority now, and honestly, the only reason people talk to me is because they want stuff from me.
    Not my best banner I grant you, but meh, it was designed as a pretty message really.

    How I could have gone for so long without knowing about this guy is beyond me.
    Summer Wars, in my opinion, was great - good action, well portrayed characters, brilliant idea [Oz], humour, King Kazma and a sensetive side too
    As for Fragmentation Banners? Eh, still not as good as Neo Pikachu

    This was a pig to work in the animation, was it worth it? I think so. [64 frames, ergh]

    ^This one was inspired by a conversation with my Lab Partner; our teamwork is so efficient that we usually finish a good 1 hour before everyone else - this particular day we finished 1 1/2 hour earlier. We we're wondering why everyone else wasn't working so well, at this time my friend grinned and started to say "Well ... I don't want to brag, but..." and I finished with "*****, we're fabulous".
    We amuse ourselves with conversations like this and randomly dancing in the lab.

    I dig the first one more, IMO, the lack of the side tints and less vibrancy than the second one acts out better. Although, the text is slightly illegible on the left one, but it plays out quite good on the second. The second one goes well along with the caption.

    [IMG]http://i41.*******.com/10f7ujl.jpg[/IMG]

    Hate to say this, but I don't like this banner very much. I do like the colors (too much red, though.), but the font choice on the heading and leading on the serif text is...ordinary. The background is overpowering and makes the text hard to read. But as I said before, there is just too much linear/color burning in this one. Just my opinion. It would be real fun, if you happened to have the time to try out a different color pallet, water for bg and a soothing blue perhaps?

    [IMG]http://i41.*******.com/aokwls.jpg[/IMG]

    I really dig this. It's something of the sort you don't do often and I like the text very much on this one. Love that planety-spacey feeling. I like the font choice on the bottom text, I think it were me, I would have added a top going motion blur but that's just me. Oh, and neon blue! +1000000000000 for that. Can I siggy this? My sig is horribly outdated.

    I just felt ... Unfinished with the first one, but the scene that it comes from is better suited to the first really

    Actually the reason the text is so ordinary is because it's supposed to be so simple - yeah the background was something I made AGES ago when I first got PS as a sort of tester round - it isn't blue because I make nearly EVERYTHING in blue XD

    This was an experiment, hadn't made any graphics in ages then I suddenly made this just for the hell of it and I was loving the song.

    Northern Lights I always love seeing your work, it's always super special awesome!
    But in all seriousness your work inspires me to improve my own art skills which have taken a back seat lately and I'm out of practice if you can call it that.

    Aww thankyou, that's really nice to hear =] tbh Graphics has taken a back seat for me too, been too busy with my drawing streak atm, but I did do this recently -

    Awesome banner! Those bubbles! Those colors!

    Great job Northern Lights. I'm a fan, especially since you can make colorful banners that don't strain people's eyes unlike me xD

    ^ Oh wow, people still look here ^^ "Year of Tepig" made me giggle btw
    I find that if it looks overly bright to you, then other people will find it even more so, so just drop the saturation levels


    Made myself a new Facebook Cover, this time of BLU Medic

    Whoa, the above user really sums up everything I have to say about your work.
    But I will say I really love your Medic cover photo it is a clever Idea. Now I want to make an Engie cover photo. I wonder how that would work, maybe have him wrenching where the person's profile pic would be.

    Anyway, keep up the stellar work!

    Guess again, Chucklenuts - I knew who you were I just had trouble placing the username ... I think it was Vshan? yes/no? got it horribly wrong and should just hide in corner?

I was thinking how it would look if you duplicated the text with that red color... but yeah, that would clutter things up, I guess.
    The text came with the spirals, I did have it on the other side originally, but it as you said, it "flows" nicely when it's this way round, I took out the text but then it left a massive space, so in came the miscellaneous text brushes to the rescue - Believe me, the duplicate red looked really weird.

    Actually yeah, I tend to do that the original image wasn't all that coloured anyway, Medic is pretty much monotone anyway except for the coloured clothing that shows his Team, and the scene reminded me of Sin City for a bit, so I picked a colour and ran with it.

    I need MOAR of those textures...

    Sure, If I work out how, eh, i'll just send an e-mail - you'll find I have an unfortunate habit of melded certain layers together once i'm down with their individual effects (makes moving them easier for me)

And how did you construct that ampersand symbol? I see a '3' there... but what's that bottom thingy? '2'?
    The text is what I struggled on, for so long, so I'm glad you think it looks good - the "&" is actually from a different font, the "Anime Ace" font had a rather boring looking "&" so I fiddled with the fonts until I got that one.

The yellow-orange bit correlates with that blond-haired guy and the purplish hue right next to it correlates with the purple haired guy. I find it to be really thoughtful!
    Now that you mention it, I'm afraid to say coincidence; I altered the hue/saturation until I thought it fit in with the banner as a whole (I do a whole lot of guesswork with these) but after you've said that I can see why it fits so well now.

    Quote Originally Posted by Bhatman View Post

    I know, but when i take it out my brain just can't stop looking at that bare patch... >.<

    Quote Originally Posted by Bhatman View Post

    Seen The Avengers? asdfghjkl Tom Hiddleston I liked Black Widow, she hijacked that scooter like a boss.

    *twitch* Now i'm tempted to do an Engineer one too Engie <3 I love making Cover Photos that actually interact with the profile picture, my last one didn't do much of that, I'm surprised I never posted it, huh...

    Yes, it has Fluttershy sitting on a cloud surrounded by other iconic things. deal with it.

    Wow, it's been ages since I actually did any Graphics stuff or even posted here, but I guess I can keep this thread going. I'm surprised people still know of me tbh.

    I haven't done much, but I did design a new Album colour for Light The Archangel

        Spoiler:- Album Cover:


    A couple of new Backgrounds for my Tumblr (shoosh) ... I really need to do some more stuff, I miss it, I've mostly been drawing out of the wahzoo. I did watch Pokemon First Movie again for the first time in a long while at Anime Club (of which i am treasurer so guess who made the suggestion) and we had the biggest turn out all term.
