This all depends though, did you want the banner to be focused on the text, or the render? It's hard to tell for me, but it's still a good banner.
My first sprite banner in like, ever. I think I made one about a year ago, but yeah. I have mixed feelings about the light source... I knew I needed one, and I tried to make it broad and not overpower the banner. Looking on it now, I think the two low-opacity renders around the focal sprite take away a bit of attention. What do you guys think?
This is also my first banner in about 5 months, so don't go too rough. ^_^; I think it turned out pretty well.
Alonzo, I actually looked at your Kingdra banner a bunch as I was doing this. xD You can probably see the influence.
It's rather bland, imo. Have the sprite blend in more with the tag, it stands out a bit much. The colors don't really mesh to well either. The background sprites do seem a little sloppy too. The light source seems to be pretty good, though. Overall, it's alright.
I haven't played around with gfx in like, 327648372 years though, so yeah. :p
