O_O I can but imagine how long those Special banners must have taken you to make. (Well, you did say in your blog, but . . . yeah.) They're seriously great.

Your other banners are really good also. I like:

this one the most. It's beautiful!

Wow, I really like your stuff =) My favorites are in the PokeSpecial banner deals. Green and Silver's are my favorite. Red's is pretty cool too =3 But yeah, these look nice.

Heh, you say you're a beginner, but these are really good, Gav :3

I especially like the image you turned into your blog header, and the Hellsing one at the bottom.

The PokeSpecial ones all came out nicely, too~

I hope you keep up the good work ^_^

The PokeSpecial Avatars are pretty awesome, and the tags aren't half bad either, you've got an eye for colour that's for sure.

Anyways, you're flying through gfx having just started so nice work.

Your tags are very good for being a beginner , although the Batman one isn't really up to the same standard, the Haruhi has to be the best there. You blog header is nice but the text is hard to read (but I guess it's okay if you wanted it to be unreadable), especially the red text, but the font is what really makes it hard to read, good positioning though. Your avatars are fine since there's not much you can really do with avatars, but there are some great ones I've seen.
The pokespecial themes are nice and I see you like to use stock images there, nice text but the Sabrina one and the Giovanni one have a bit of hard to read text, other than that, the text is nice. In the Wallace theme, I can see a lens flare in the background, personally, I don't think you should use a normal lens flare, if you want light, you should use the third selection of the lens flares (presuming you use PS), and if you want colour light, use a brush and then lower the opacity.
Your latest one is interesting but messy in my opinion.
Out of all that is there, your Haruhi one has to be the best.

Overall, very good for beginner work. :D

For a beginner, you're pretty good at this. You use your space wisely, and you make your work fit well making them very appealing. I like your use in color and like I mentioned earlier, your Blog Header came out really well regardless of you thinking it looks bland. As for your PokéSpecial Collab, it was really great practice and like you said you can see your improvements.

Other than this, all I can say is that you're going to be a pretty good graphic designer with this tags and all overtime. Hope your work on icons comes out just as well.

Never again. D:< This is pretty much my pet peeve multiplied by ten. Cheap render effects slapped on- especially this specific pack, which is so darn recognizable and was so unjustifiably spammed a few months ago after Michii did that one tag. If you're going to use such a recognizable render effect, make it your own somehow. I feel this tag is really lacking in originality. (Not to mention the png is funky.)

http://i637.photobucket.com/albums/uu99/IGavZI/Untitled-7.png

Alice isn't contrasted enough, is swallowed by the effects, but at least in this one, the effects are badass.
Text isn't really workin' it- very plain placement, not the best choice in font, and it's kind of blinding. Not blending, y'know?

http://i637.photobucket.com/albums/uu99/IGavZI/Ryanisgay.png

Apparently you're good friends with simplicity. I love how this tag isn't quite as overdone as all your others.
It's flatter, but aesthetically more pleasing, IMO.

http://i637.photobucket.com/albums/uu99/IGavZI/sofar.png

I just love this. I don't know why, but I do. Maybe because Gilbert is in it, maybe because it captures the essence of Gilbert with the random blurs, or maybe because I reminds me of LJ. (Though I'd say you need some serious blurring on those oversharpened fingers of his.)



Your latest Hellsing piece is pretty cool too. Not sure I like it enough to comment more on it though. :< A little overdone on smudging, IMO.
