I think that one's pretty nice, I like the the general flow and it's simplicity of it, I'd give it an 8.5/10.

I decided to try a different style, this is what I came up with, but I couldn't decide on text or not so I just made two versions.. :P

I like the overall feel of it 8D The only thing that bothers me is that there's a lot of empty space. I guess it does add to the feel, but it makes me think that its incomplete or something is missing. *shrugs*

I guess this one is okay. I just really don't like how there's WAY too much going on for it to be pleasing to the eyes. The flow is a little hard to identify, and I just think its too dark. The...scanlines(?) look too harsh and make it look less pleasing. For the one with the text, I think it's a little hard to find and even then, its still not very nice either (as in it doesn't match with the rest of the sig (but that's just me)). The effects do look nice, but there's just too much, so I'd work on fixing that first.

I'd suggest removing the scanlines or turning them down and also get rid of some of the darkness on Knuckles because I can tell he's supposed to be the focal but i'm not really drawn to him.

Also, I like no text.

Personally, I would give those scan lines an eviction notice. Or at least a warning, if you don't want to delete all of the lines. I'd play around with it and do a copy with some of the scan lines deleted and the rest faded (or just take all of the lines out). You already have a good bit of texture in the render--it'd be a nice contrast if you partially or completely removed the lines.

I'd like some feedback on these images, please. Which you prefer and any additional comments. Ty.

Well IMO the middle is my favourite; because the top doesn't have enough colour (No, it does..I just like the middle xD) and the bottom doesn't burst out as much. The picture looks a little...low quality? I dunno. It just looks a little...'meh' somehow? And it's also quite plain. Maybe have some effects behind the render and some lighting effects? Just need to spruce it up a bit. ;)

I'm too lazy to place something here. Sorry.

@Dragoness: I like the middle one because of the colors, but it seems like it's a little low on quality. I suggest working on a light source and flow as well. Deviantart is a good site to get some C4Ds and brushes from. Once you get a few C4Ds, start applying them to your banners and erase the parts that aren't needed. This will help with the flow, but there's still other methods of doing so. In my two banner I'm posting, I used C4Ds for both of them, such as the things wrapped around Latios.

For a light source, I usually just use a soft brush and use it depending on the image's shadowing. So to start things off, I'd try not using any renders that look like they have poor quality, since that would usually lead to a poor-looking banner. Nice job otherwise, I liked them.

@ FD, the stock images and Pokemon flow really well, but for some reason both renders seem a bit chompy, still good though.

Now,



I didn't like it, **** text, I was just testing out some smudges and stuff, C/C please.

Ooh, me likey 8D
Too much empty space, though. Maybe sparks/lightning effects coming from the focal in the empty space would make it look better? Just going out on a limb there. The dark outline around Charmeleon makes it look a little funky too. The text is fine, it's just hard to find.

@Keta:

Text isn't bad, but could be better. A font that is more italized and edgy might fit the feel of the picture more. Also, the placement is fine (I would have put it in the bottom right, but that is purely preference) though I wonder what the text would look like if you slanted it and put it right near the render.

The background is awesome. It's a pretty good sprite banner =) Though I feel the Charmeleon sticks out more than she should. Perhaps if you smudged a bit around her?
------

@FD:

You really have an eye for what background style would go with the render. The first one I might experiment some with and perhaps use more shadowing and smudging + some extra special effects. The reason being is that the render seems to stick out a little ackwardly from the background--even though the background just seems to fit well with a flying 'mon.

The second one I really like. The upper left corner's light seems a little...off to me. It's a bright white light that very quickly fades into green/black. Perhaps if you toned it down a little or made the very edges of the light a pale green. Something to think about =)

This doesn't look bad at all (excluding the text), IMO. I like your smudge work, and I like the way you've put the C4Ds in there, as well. :)
However, putting the Charmeleon under the C4Ds, while erasing some parts of the C4Ds that makes Charmeleon look bad, would've made the banner look more attractive.
And if you haven't already, try adding some Adjustment Layers in there, it can make the colors of the banner look a little more balanced. :3
Need you all to comment on that banner. xD

Try experimenting with C4D's and such :) it makes it nice haha.
Also try and make the render blend in more than just making it look like it was just pasted onto the banner :-/



C+CC?

I love the banner, it looks great! xD But, I don't really like the black lines around the render... I think giving the lines a different color from the banner, would make the banner look better. Same thing goes for the text, try changing the current color of it to a color from the banner.
So, yeah, the banner looks really good, but a few improvements/changes can make it look even better. :3

Well, I like the banner, but, the banner's a little too "green", y'know? Try adding some C4Ds/effects of different colors in there, those things always makes a banner look good...
Try smudging the sides of the render a little to make it blend in a little more, not too much, though. And it's kinda hard to tell where the light's coming from in the banner, a lighting effect can possibly fix this issue.
