    ^Mayhaps you can make a sequel. If you're counting the vulpine dog-Pokes too, then don't forget good ol' Vulpix.

    *cough, cough*Shameless plug*cough* You know, I put up a digital media thread too... I'd be honored to get a critique from you...

    Contrast the image using the burn [shadows] and dodge [highlights] tools, then layer over a colour texture on screen, erase and darken in areas to allow image underneath to blend through, then overlay a diagonal line brush.

    hope that helps =]

    oh, nl, you've improved from since i last saw your work around a year ago. i particularly like the manectric banner but don't you find it a little too saturated? maybe try golding up the yellows a little. making the colours more... hmm, how do you describe it... as if they were on gold tinted parchment. a little bit more faded and oh, oldish. like old cars you see in old movies that have colour. i'm not sure if this is understandable. also, your sandslash banner-- i take it you've been making very nice use of textures recently, too! certain improvement.

    it's nice to see your work again after such a long time.

    Ah, so you have returned, good to see you back - tbh, when i saw you had posted i expected a lecture on the saturation levels XD, thanks for the compliment =]

    I have a habit of making my banners saturated - i see what you mean, so make it slightly more rustic in appearance. I could try that. Texture are certainly a good friend to me.

    Made for the current WBC, theme; Green

    Sweet! It's Envy from Full Metal Alchemist! Great use of colors and techy-light textures, but maybe next time you can have the fonts match the style a tad better. That high-gothic caligraphy script looks beautiful by its self, but I would've used a font that looked more clean cut. A clean looking Roman-esque font would've been more suited in my opinion.

    Hmm, i get what you're saying, especilly with the whole techy feel to the banner.

    New Signature [the umbreon was drawn out and coloured myself from TCG card] I have a Vaporeon waiting in the wings too. Soon to be followed by Flareon hopefully

    :O I might just die...Vaporeon is awesome and i love what you did on the frilled color!

    If i could say one thing i think the outline is a bit to bold.

    Would you mind if i used that in my sig?

    It's the same thickness as the Umbreon, but i suppose as Vaporeon is lighter in colour one notices it more.

    This is love.

    In fact, I love all your new stuff! The colors are so nice and vibrant without crossing into eye-burning territory.

    I love the colors and effects on your NeoEliteShipping wall. Especially since I personally find it really tough to make Pokemon walls. I do have two little nitpicks though. 1. The heart brush on it looks kinda pixelly, and 2. Umbreon and Dragonite look a little awkward to me on it. I'm not really sure if it's more an issue on position or scale, but they just don't look as natural as the other two. Dragonite could use some clean-up around the edges too.

    But other than that, I really like it. The texture goes smoothely with the whole image and the colors go nicely with the characters. Also sparklies. Gotta love the sparklies.

    Also, your Up! banner is an assault of cuteness.

    I'm done now. I didn't really mean to chatter on this long.

    You know i noticed the pixelly heart as soon as i posted it >.< ergh, i might re-do it if i have time, as for the pokemon i never noticed dragonite had white pixels around him, he didnt have when i started i swear, i never use or leave images with bad extractions, but i don't know why they dont seem to fit.

    Made quite by accident, i was collecting Toothless images, because come on he's adorbale, and i found this one of Toothless pulling a strange expression, so i made an icon for him XD

    Fantastic~ All your new stuff looks so lively. Not a bit of it that's flat or boring. I really like your beast trio wallpaper. It's so sparkly and well-balanced. I really like the format of the Lance wall (and I love that song) and the colors look awesome. I don't really like the cut-out style of integrating him in though. But I hate extracting those black-background Pokemon images so I feel your pain.

    I may be in a slump, but you're doing amazing stuff. *JEALOUSY STATS INCREASE TIMES FIVE*

    Agreed with Skiyomi, your work is very vivacious and positive in feeling. The best one is the Melody one since the image is well integrated with the papery background as well as the inky text.

    I'd like to see you deviate from your traditional image, texture, brush style sometime. I know you have much more potential hidden.

    NL I absolutely love you're 'Melody' banner [even though I can't appreciate the text in your signature that goes with it] The use of colour is vibrant and the colour choice is amazing. That little light effect over the text makes a nice touch, in fact the lighting on the banner is general is well executed.

    The lance wallpaper really highlights you're creativity, once again it shows in your presentation. I really think some of your ideas are quite innovotive (urgh did i spel that right?) Although -i must admit- some of the time your layouts do not always come out with the best results, this one is a real piece of work.

    eek...I'm so sorry but I really don't like the legendary beasts wallpaper. To me the lighting effects are too-bright and seem overbearing. Also avoid ever putting textures or distorting effects over important features- like the face. In this case its the dog in the middle- I wouldn't have that light just over his face there I'd move it to be higher up, or to the side [although i don't know how moving it would affect the rest of the wallpaper]

    Otherwise its great work though =D

    Trust me, i know this, i'm forever telling everybody this - unfortunatly, it was a request and they wanted it to be Bright and colourful ... and result. The light texture isn't actually obscuring any of Entei's face, i just put that huge image of overlay, that's why his face looks really bright. I don't particularly like that wallpaper either, it's has either too many or no focal points =/

    Oh NL I'm so sorry. That blue 'thing!' you have put on that wallpaper it just doesnt fit, it looks out of place and it doesnt complement anything, it breaks up the pictures of the wolves and distorts the focal point making it hard to determine one.

    Also can you blur out the wolf in the bottom right, it's eyes are giving me the heebie jeebies O.o
