    These are really good; I love your use of lighting! Although your choice of fonts doesn't seem to fit in some of your banners (specifically in your Prinplup, Mewtwo and Lugia banners). Other than that, these are great.

    Some good work you got, I really adore the mew one. (personal I guess)
    The only thing what's bothering me in most of your work is the font or placement of the text
    If only it merged more with the background, that'll be perfect Just an tip.

    Good luck with your thread

    Thank you! I feel that lighting could be the difference between a good tag and a terrible one, so I make sure that it leaves an impact when I create it. ^^

    Far as the font goes, yea, the Mewtwo one was a super old banner back in my experimentation days. The only thing i like about it now is the effects I created for Aura Sphere. xD;;;

    The other two you mentioned aren't that bad, I used that particular font b/c it worked well with the lighting effects, but I can see how some wouldn't care for the style.

    Thanks for the tip!~ ^^

    The first three you see I created quite a long time ago, I've gotten much better at font and placement since then, they just aren't reflected too well in my pokemon banners.

    I'll post some of my other tags for reference, although many of them aren't pokemon. xD;

    Shining Mewtwo tag made from the actual Pokemon card.

    the banners is nice i like how you gave the render a glowing effect to it to blend the banner the only thing im worried about is the contrast is a bit too bright imo also the text seems to blend it with the banner a little too much but otherwise besides that its a nice banner

    Omg, I totally forgot about this thread. xD;;

    The glowing effect was part of the image, tbh, and I agree that the contrast is a bit high, but that's also part of the image considering I was using a holographic pokemon card as the focal. I tried to blend it in as much as possible so that the lighting seemed more natural, I guess it kinda failed, Lol~

    Text was a bit of a pain cause I wasn't sure what I wanted to do with that, but thank you for the comment, Eevee. :3

    no problem useless and for the text im not so great on that as well sometimes so don't feel bad i was told though that choosing a font normally depends on how the banner is by grunge look, and etc...sometime horror type fonts go more with those type of banners but other text for example tech banners of course would go with tech type texts...not all the time text can go with its brush effects which can be a pain sometimes but try to keep in mind text is a very important thing when it is needed and no problem im always here to help improve i do love your work i would like you continue working on more banners

    wow, these are nice.
    I particularly liked the kindom hearts, totero, and broken ones.
    but in the first post, the first few pokemon ones....the sprite against a photo....i personally think it would be better with, pokedex 3D pro, images, but thats just me.

    Thank you Ansem! I'm a huge fan of the KH series, and that's one of my favs too. ^^

    Far as the pokemon ones go, I can only make a tag with the media I have, and those are sprites and Sugimori artwork, If you know where I can find pokedex 3D pro images I would love to have them.

    Thank you!

    ----

    Alright, so been a while since I have posted here, but I have at least couple of new tags so here they are...

    Shiny Alakazam using Psyshock!



    And a Shiny Espeon in a Red Wood forest. xD



    Any comments are appreciated!~

    ----

    Also I'd like tell anyone who is interested that I'm taking at least two requests for a pokemon tag.

    Please provide me with...

    I) A link, image, or render of the pokemon you're interested in.

    II) The text you would like on it, and also font choices if you have them. If not, I'll be taking artistic liberties with both.
