View Full Version : Gummy's Creations and Abominations

December 22nd, 2008, 9:19 PM
About time I got my own showcase, right? Although I have loads of banners in my in my Pictures folder, I'll mostly be showing my latest works. The only time I'll post one of my old banners is if it is really good or really bad. So, after I establish a few rules, we'll get this thing started.


1) No stealage. Honestly, if you see a banner you like and I haven't given it to someone already, just ask and I'll gladly give it to you (with credit, of course)
2) The truth will set you free. Feel free to be brutally honest with my banners.
3) Request at your own peril.This will most likely never be turned into a shop. I hate working with other people's images.
4) It's "Da Rulez!. Follow all G&P and PC rules.

Eeep cool stuff, I see a couple of really awesome tags here!
Can I just ask, exactly what is the render in the first tag? I cannot seem to work it out...

Anyway, I actually kind of liked your Topaz tag. :O Sure it wasn't exactly the best place to use it, but I like the Topaz effect. xD; I think you should give it whirl again next time, but maybe not use it on the entire tag?

Thanks to both of you for the comments. And as Loki said, that render is a Gundam. It's probably hard to tell because the C4D is blocking half of its body. And Loki, it's that I don't want to try topaz again, it's that I can't. Trial ran out. xD

#3 is my favorite, the Mega-Man one. :o

I love how you can have very inventive backgrounds, and a good flow with the majority of your banners. Something that I can't seem to achieve. Great Job. ;)

You're certainly improving, Gumz. You have such a better eye for style and your color schemes than you did back in April when I first convinced you to get photoshop. -tears- You're growing up so fast! XDD. On a less positive note, you're still having slight text problems with some of the banners (in my opinion, of course). Next time I get a hold of you, I'll send you some links to some really good fonts.

Pointing out random things..

I: I have the c4d that I believe you used for this. I love the colors, but not the text. :/

II: I dun like it. Probably because of the image hate's the popularity of it, or maybe the style.

III: I like the colors, but not the text. Nice, though.

VI:Shiranui's tutorial is amazing <33. Like this.

IX: I love all the colors and things going on. Izz purty :3

X: I like it too. The scratchy texture and the red soft brush that I'm assuming you used over the fist is nice.

XVII: I'm not fond of it. It's too simple to me, and the text doesn't help.

Overall, you've improved so much in the past months. The biggest thing that I think you have to work on is text, but you're still improving. Merry Christmas, Gumz. =]]

your creation is as always cool as always...old friend....xD...i like that kindom heart banner...

December 25th, 2008, 7:41 AM
People here are really good at sig making.
Anyway, I like XIV (because it's TWEWY-oriented, and it looks good), XV (Squirtle!), and XVIII (Bass looks really awesome on that one).

Keep up the good work!

hey is that "my boredom knows end" from atlantica??? the render seems to be familiar..

December 25th, 2008, 9:15 AM
Your work is so very pleasing to look at!
My absolute favorite is XV. That Squirtle is just...that...great!
What programs do you use to create a 3-D character?

December 26th, 2008, 9:20 AM
nice job on all the banners keep up the awsome job!
