Your concepts are quite good, but the vibrance and saturation level is bothering me. Your style liberally uses many blending options (Shadows, Strokes, etc) but sometimes they tend to spoil the effect.
Specifically speaking about the banners in post #122 (Qouted)
Just C+C from your friendly neighbourhood designer.

I have to agree; the colors are just sometimes overbearing and sometimes you cover everything with a filmy, saturated layer of colors that doesn't hold the integrity of the original image. It needs contrast. Nothing has to be subtle, but it can't be one color or one spectrum of colors over the whole thing. What I do appreciate is that you are probably one of the only people who executes more techniques. For me, I just don't really do much but keep it simple all the time.

Also I'm curious how you make your badges. Do make them from scratch in PS with the pen tool/tablet? Do you have refrences when you make them? Sorry, I'm just really curious as to how you make them. Another great area of your work =)
● Amaterasu ● God ● Hunter ● Hero ● Saviour ●
^ they're made via Tablet, pen tool, straight into Photoshop =]
Watched Alice in Wonderland on Friday, i must say i was impressed - Stephen Fry was a really great choice to voice Chesire Cat, so as a tribute i made this.
Then i made this out of boredom today.
New Section added.
Spoiler:- Big Banners:

i like the last one XD
You're dragonair and ninetales banners really highlight your creativity, aweomse layout style the banners themselves are very simplistic, but they have that certain class about them =]
Btw, for the third time....ITS SPELT VENGEANCE!!!
I've said it twice in rate the sig thingy...but yeh.
oooh! More ones, I love the eeve one! nice choice of colours
That's a pretty sweet layout for Pokebanners. One suggestion for the three sprite-snapshots: how about you use different sprites for each of the three boxes? (i.e: Use the D/P, Platinum, and HG/SS sprites if at all possible.)
Thanks for the Comments Guys
Luxrayness - I don't particularly like the older sprites, and i do the sprite snap-shots like that to highlight different parts of the pokemon, i know i could still do that whilst using different sprites, but then they wouldn't match up.
Been messing with some animation techniques.
and a Wallpaper for Mr.Joker.
Ok firstly the empathy avatar is awesome, the animation fits the avatar and the meaning-AWESOME WORK!
The wallpaper, thats priceless!
^glad you like them [i'm proud of the Empathy icon =D]
