Hey Me names Demidian..or they call me Jack (hmmm...who are they?)

I am recently new to making banners....sinces im to much of a cheapo i cant afford photoshop...and i can't be bothered to pirate a copy...i have been using gimp..that's right GIMP! aniwaiiz on to the showcase..it's not much but im still training:(oh btw...plz criticise, and do you think i should open a shop up? of course when i train some more)

Here are the banners in order i made them:
#1:

#2:

Now this is now my latest banner, it is of Uryuu ishida from bleach xP now mayb eone of most fav shows. i tryed to follow people on blending the render...but for the text i didn't do it for this one because it was too much trouble..(i had to find the right text find a tut etc,) so i guess next banner i will work on that, but for now one step at a time, Hope you like!^^~

It's not bad... and you used GIMP? That's not bad for a GIMP user. ^^

Well the only thing I can say is that you should play around with the image a little more instead of having the original and cutting out the backgrounds.

The backgrounds are good, would look better if you added textures though.

Overall, good job and keep it up! =D

Thankyou XP what do you mean by playing around with the image?...and what sort of textures?

Like for example, making the image shinier or making a little duller. And for textures, they are like backgrounds, but they add more things to your graphics.

Uhh.. Your images are awesome. I know that you still need to train, but... I really think that you should open up a shop.

Well, you've most certainely improved since you've started; there's no question about that.

However you still have a lot of work to do. The text isn't AAAA-mazing, but it's not bad. The only real crit I have is the brushing. Brushing over your image is a must in most styles. It pulls everything together.


Keep it up =]
