^ A good place for already-rendered images is guildinn and Planetrenders
I think your banners look pretty I've seen art shops that dont do as good ( I can't make a banner or any art it's my weekness lol) I think they look very well even do you say they are not.

-And some other thing I forgot-
Only truly talented graphic designers/artists can put all the elements of art in their works.
You are on your way, young padowan.
Learning fast, you are *Yoda impression there*
You've pretty much mastered simple banners ^_^
Try different styles, such as smudge and c4d. The more the merrier, some people say.
BTW the drop shadow next to Blastoise's right cannon is jacked up :/
Pretty good I guess. You use GIMP?
I Love the starting fire pokemon
Current Silver Team:
wow, flawless-looking simple banners. *takes out magnifying glass*
Now let's see what's wrong with them XD
CON - there's random black lines next to the right side of the 'Dangerous' banner :/
PRO - That swirl/line/whatever around Ivysaur is an awesome effect ^_^ I have that same brush in my Vector brushes set and I had no idea when to use it, so you just gave me some ideas there.
Yeah I saw the black lines on my Nidorino banner, I must have moved the layer with those lines by mistake and not notice it until I uploaded it.
Yeah the Ivysaur one was just to play around with :P
These were made yesterday and a couple days ago.
excellent use of the Vector cloud brush. Now I am 100% sure we have the same Vector brush pack xD.
For additional vector, I suggest getting the Urban Vector brushes off of obsidiandawn.com; the downloading takes around one minute but well worth it
Heart of Steel
Just loving the brush placement there ^_^
Banette Halloween Banner
The white light in the lower left corner looks like it was from the Perspective effect; there could've been some white in the upper right corner to balance the banner out, too :/
Zoroark Halloween Banner
Okay, that red left arm of Zoroark does not fit AT ALL :/
What the eraser tool is for, LOL
Anyway, I <3 the brushes used in this one, just really adds to it, and the scanlines texture is great
You MUST tell me the font you used for that one!!!
Lol I'm pretty sure we do.
I'll look into that brush pack, thanks for telling me about it.
With the Skarmory one I was pretty amazed with how it turned out, despite the mess up with the borders.
The white light was just a smudged out edge brush to make it look like Banette is starting to get surrounded by mist.
Lol don't you mean his right arm? I should have moved that red layer behind Zororak ^^'
The font that was used for it is called 'Spooky Drips' I found it on Dafont.com.
^ I put 'right' before but then replaced it with 'left' :/ IDK why
Maybe it was the creepypastas from last night *shivers*
Spooky Drips? okay, gonna put that in my Fonts book.
Anyway, GL with the shop and GL with trying new strategies and things, and like AV said,
"You remind me of _Snivy!" xD
However, take care with borders. I'm not sure if this works in GIMP, but if you use the pencil tool while holing shift, you go in a straight line. And why did you blur the corners in the Nidorino banner?
Claims: Mario, The Big Bang Theory, Victini
They're simple because I'm only learning to make banners, I've been going at it for about a month, so it's good to hear that people like them.
I know about the borders, they look fine in GIMP, I make the edges straight by holding shift, but they sometimes look messed up.
With the Nidorino banner, I was just playing around with it, trying out some new things and stuff like that.
I was in the mood for a Team Rocket Banner

Anyway, the icons are the side are great, did a similar effect in my Team Magma/Aqua banner xD.
The whole banner could've been smaller, and the text could've been placed better :/
The image on the right was rendered pretty well, I know it was an image because YOU DO NOT KNOW how many times that same render is used.
THERE'S WAY BETTER VICTINI IMAGES OUT THERE, PEOPLE! SERIOUSLY!
But nice BG ^_^
I like how there's only one flash of thunder that's white LOL
It makes it really stand out even more
oooooooh, is that the Pokemon font I see? :3
Wear your Fears
one of these days, looking at pink graphics will kill me >.<
But I really like the brush BG you used, looks like a combo of splatter and cobweb-like lines IMO.
The render/image could've been schooched more to the left . . .
TR banner: I was trying out something new, so I didn't expect much lmao
Victini Banner: The first time I had ever rendered something out of a pic like that, but I'm glad how it turned out.
Shop Banner: Again playing around with stuff, put the white lightining in by sheer chance though.
Yes it is Pokemon font, I have 3 different Pokemon fonts to play around with
Wear your fears: actually it's not pink, just really transparent red. The BG is just basically splatter brushes and the shattered glass brushes.
I know the image could have been moved over I know.
