    At the same time, blending it in too much isn't very good either.

    For text...uh...I'm not quite sure, as I've never had the problem be that bad, but I guess an outline (1-2 px) would do well. Usually what I do.
    Yeah that's true.

    Guess my problem was the bevel, it made the pixel problem worse

    Blended a bit more.

    To above: It's for a light source... or the render's armor would look weird with a shine on a dark background.
    I think that's what it's for.
    Or for the text. Because I just woke up and a little fuzzy.

    I should've worked over that layer of light, I didn't wanna make the text unreadable.

    I know. & FMA I just started watching this week and so far I love it! & I made the light source to make the render pop more. idk.

    Took me a while to figure out whats in the background. I think the bigger render of Ed in the BG makes the left part of the banner look crowded. Also, the whole name is barely readable except for the "hrue" part. Other than that, the right part of the banner seems perfect to me. Great use of scanlines, and I think the light source combined with the blown dust or dirt thing in the lower right corner is pretty cool.

    EDIT:

    I do shiny cards sometimes and with my new computer screen installed i'm noticing it's very hard to see the background image, which is dissapointing because SCs are very simple and easy to make so IDK what's going on. I'd be happy if you could tell me that you can see the background image or if you can't. Thank you!

    Thanks so much guys, love the feedback. I'm having a really hard time with text. I don't know why. I should've simply just made the "DA" brighter when I did the gradient. I erased some of it that's why D:

    Been having a lot of success mixing up Fractals and C4D's in one banner with very limited brush work. Thanks Azure for that inspiration (:

    What program do you use?

    The only thing I can think of is either the opacity is turned down or the white background is on overlay. Which the latter doesn't even really make sense, now that I think.

    @dahrue Happy to help ^+^

    Hey CoC. Would be nice to add more details and reduce the capacity of some items. They're all good for the basics, but there are lots of potential spaces. no. 2 would be my favorite simply because of the background color.

    I'm currently experimenting with this thing and still unable to be satisfied by it. :[
    Any critics would be greatly appreciated.

    While this may just be me, I find the backgrounds too plain. You can hardly see the Pokemon back there, and the plain white area around them seems to really drain the color out. I would try filling that space and making the background Pokemon pop out a bit more.

    Nice But i agree with everyone else, The white background realy drains the colour, and makes it a bit... bland (if thats the word...) the charizard one is the best IMO simply because of the colour.

    (they actually don't, just take a little while if you don't know what you're doing)
    In the first two, I can see the edges in the gif. Which isn't good.
    You can a) use the eraser to erase the edges, or b) when resizing, make it fit the edges of the banner.
    Cause your Kagamine banner's gif doesn't even reach the top. And the edges on the first one are really obvious.
    And your text on the first one is cut off ._.

    Last one is better than the other two, but you have some pixels on the right edge that are kind of distorted or something.

    Well I was going to critique for once but it looks every point I would have made for suggestions have been made already by someone else q.q

    I have too much times on my hands so~

        Spoiler:- Another Jecht Banner:


        Spoiler:- Lulu :3:


    Obviously there in my sig too, but it's a cycle of 3 so yeah.

    Also thinking about doing a button for the club since we have a userbar(from SM).

    ...I'm not sure what to say to that. o_o

    We also have a huge banner. Well, we used to.
    And the bars are made by Eevee (FairyWitch) not SM.

    To your banners, Lulu is made pretty well, but to the other one, the render has some extraction marks.
    Not much though, and since it's cycling, I don't think you'll really notice it...


    EDIT: epicjirachifan, there was actually text on your Kagamine banner? I swear, just noticed that now. I could barely read it cause it was black like the gif. Might want to outline it or make it a different color.

    Oh damn I didn't notice them >.< I didn't extract it myself. And I didn't want to use the same image as my other banner he's in.



    I was thinking of this one he did when he was a part of this place.

    Too bad no one uses Fairy's userbars that much :L they look good.

    hey there epic and your animation banners are nice but only problem i have is that the transparency on one i can see the gif cut off which alot of people have a hard time is blending the gif in the banner mostly alot of layers and correct colors that blend with the image and gif works well...layers are the key for that....also this is just me i have a strange ocd about banner sizing but i feel the banner is really like a box >.> i find banners more rectangular just these banners to me are a bit off but that is just me though...not sure if its me the first banner text seems a bit cut off >.> not sure but the X i think is on the left is off the banner...as well as try adding stroke the banner for like a border...i find bordering with black or white gives nice touches to the banner and looks more finished imo...gifs can be smaller then the banner but it takes alot of work to not show its edges...good job though

    edit: I think nick didn't save the banner for the club as well as the userbars so they got erased but shadow how did you get it >.> i could somehow though remake a banner again for you guys out my kindness though of my free time for the club....I feel bad though also yeah shadow i need to remake those userbars tbh i think i can do better now ...its up to you guys though about the new banner thing just let me know...

    I like the colors, but what's in the background? I can't tell. The text is a little small, but I can still read it.

    I can't find anything. The lighting n stuff. It's all good.
    Imo the text size and color is perfect. You don't want a big text that will absorb more attention than the actual work of that banner.
    Great work!
