    I will no longer take art requests for the time being. Busy with IRL stuff.

    Try making the background darker, and add a bit of white overlay on the render's face, making it a focal point. Other than that input, I'm not really a good art rater xD

    Hi Nick, I'd like to join the Artist's Corner!

    Username: Kaiserin
    Nickname: ...Uh, Kaiserin works!!
    What art you enjoy doing: I sketch a lot, though I haven't finished anything in a while, and most of my rough stuff doesn't see the light of day anyway. I do a lot of anime-style stuff, and in particular, I like re-designing characters, putting my own spin on them, and depicting various combinations of characters I feel don't get enough attention in fandom!
    How you became interested in art: Quite literally, I just picked up my pencil one day in seventh grade and started to draw. Over time, I got better and more confident, but I would doodle all the time on the back of worksheets and in the middle of class. I'm still my own worst critic, but I'm a lot better about being too picky and detached to my art now that I'm a little older.

    ...Oddly, I'm fine at drawing freehand/references, but terrible at graphic design like sig banners. I have the sense of color and layout for it, but my Photoshop skills aren't quite good enough for it. Same with editing photos and images, really. I work best from scratch -- and apparently, I also give good critiques; I think I pride myself more on my ability to critique than my ability to actually draw, haha.

    one thing i learned about rendering is black and white colors are really hard to render...anything that is plain white and plain dark...try to avoid those colors if nessary of course XD its not bad to use them but just don't use alot of it...

    edit:

    also candlereaper...the first banner is a bit extracted badly cuaz i can see white lines in them try to get images that are already rendered if possible if not try using the the magic eraser tool to extract quicker and better...some images are harder extract though if it doesn't extract well don't use it...second banner you know what i said about it XD the third banner...the third is cool but the text is hard to read try using a different font or bold it to make it thicker...sometimes that helps....over not bad banners

    sometimes text is better off white in banners...also sometimes we need to place a slim border around it if we use the same colors on our banners...to make it show better as well...the text in your banner pokeram is a bit blurry maybe try to sharpen it? not sure why its blurry...do you have anti-aliasing on your text tool function? there four of them...they help make texts clearer as well...skiyomi told me about it...i only have one since my photoshop is a intro photoshop...its photoshop elements 2.0 trying to invest in a better one soon....

    Nickname: Cru
    What art you enjoy doing: I've enjoyed everything I have ever attempted
    How you became interested in art: Actually, I was inspired by some people on Serebii, such as Mew and Sarah, and Neo Pikachu.

    I was wondering if anybody could tell me how I could improve the banner in my sig.

    Well, for the Second one, what if I removed the border?

    EDIT: Well, yea, most Images I want to use have crazy BG Colors, or don't extract well at all.

    Wow, this club got popular fast! Everyone is accepted, but I'll edit the OP tomorrow. Can someone help me get into tech-art, specifically banners? I'm kind of close off to only pencil drawings, so I'd like to get into something new.

    well i can't really help you with tech banners as much since i kinda improvise since my photoshop is old...think you might want to strart normal banners first simple

    use either photoshop or gimp but if you don't want to shell out money try using gimp its free

    No, I have no image editing thing. Soooo, since you have to pay for Photoshop, I should get Gimp? Alright, I'll try that tomorrow. What next?

    Hm...well you should learn how to do stuff. Look it up on YT, I recommend things like xat avis, userbars, something easy.

    Hi Nick, I'd like to join the Artist's Corner!

    Username: PikaPika677
    Nickname: PikaPika, Pika
    What art you enjoy doing: Spriting, simple signatures
    How you became interested in art: Took a look at this webpage one day http://www.dragonflycave.com/recoloring.aspx and suddenly had the urge to give it a go. Did pretty well and ran an Art Shop a year ago but closed it down 'cause I didn't have enough time to keep it running well anymore.


    Wasn't there already a club like this some time ago...?
