    Very Nice Kida.

    I think your abilities lie with banner making because its alot bigger than an icon and I feel you can focus more things into your banners than your icons.

    I like the Shipping banner and the Lanturn one, very nice colourings and your text placement and font choice is very good.

    Nice Work and i'm sure you shop will be running again.

    Hehe thanks guys

    i thought i'd try C4D effect banners, as they look stunning when done properly

    .

    Well your lucky because i haven't the foggiest idea about C4D banners but they look very cool and the text looks nice and placed well with the style of the banners.

    Consider this my reply to your PM

    I like the Wizardmon and the fixes you made to your other two C4D banners, but there's something about them that I don't like. They all seem to have some sort of texture or pattern of really small boxes that, in my opinion, takes away from the crispness of the C4Ds. Other than that, I love the lighting and flow you add to these banners. However, on Garurumon I think you should erase anything from the C4D that blocks your focal.
    love me, hate me ▬▬▬▬▬▬▬&

    ah, my bad. That just happens to be my way of making them *shrugs* i dont claim to be able to pull these off in the first place, so i adapt it.

    And the Garurumon one has been bugging me for ages. Hopefully i'll get on that.



    yes im on a digimon phase

    A very lovely collection of wide and varied styles for the banners/avvys.

    I'm keen to see what else you can do that is of the C4D nature though...

    Wow, I love your work! It has given me inspiration for my icons. ^^ I actually think your work is some of the best here. I favour too many of your icons/banners, so I'm not going to point out particular ones. I actually think you have a gift for this!
    Keep up the good amazing work and I can't wait to see more of your stuff.

    Vincent is indeed a fantastic character, the pastelled colours and background dont seem to work for me in ur sig image. However, the pink all over that Shaymin image is just gorgeous

    Who wouldn't ?

    You are really good with the new styles you try out and makes me sad I can't get the feel for new styles of banners and icons But I don't stop loving your work honey and you are such a great artist. I love the way you have presented Shaymin in the banner and the colours are so nicely done. I think Pink goes well with the look you tried to make and it works well. And btw the Vector Set isn't linked to the first page yet.

    Wow I love the Pokemon Switch banner. I like how you have contrasted two types of Pokemon and your WBG banners are amazing. I also love how you made the other banner look so perfect. The detail and look of the banner is beautiful and you always make everything so good looking. I love all your work Kida. You truely are a fantastic artist. ILU<3

    I wouldn't so much call this WBG stuff, more like transparent stuff. But wow, this is very nice work.

    Touche. but it's easier to say WBG which is 3 letters, than 'Transparent' which is 11 letters - how about BBG - Background Be Gone

    What can I say other than fantastic? I really love your idea of the WBG or BBG design and I love the brushes you have used and the way you placed the Text and the Sprite.

    I think BBG suits it better.

    I finally decided to upload these; they are technically Graphics Art

    [IMG]http://i43.*******.com/2hxuh5h.jpg[/IMG].[IMG]http://i43.*******.com/35jl99d.jpg[/IMG].[IMG]http://i40.*******.com/261mgpu.jpg[/IMG].[IMG]http://i41.*******.com/4r45rq.jpg[/IMG]
    [IMG]http://i40.*******.com/o0carn.jpg[/IMG]

    Just so you know - I redrew all of these once i had all the pieces assembeled in the right place, then i reshaded it, and recoloured it - doesn't take that long surprisingly, and i find it rather fun ^^

    another Icon;

    Oh my. Northern Lights, I can't help but admire these creations you make. ;_; I absolutely love all of these creative signature banner ideas you come up with. Even taking sprite fusions idea and converting it into a larger picture. Anything but average. ^^

    On the Luxio/Skitty fusion though, the eyes just seem off to me. :/ Obviously Skitty's eye's don't really have a color to them, but the brown just sort of falls flat in my opinion. Did you experiment with other colors, or is there another not so dominate pokemon that you added in that had the brown eyes? It's just that one detail that just seems off, everything else looks really amazing though.
