Default D.2's Banner Showcase [Updated 6/6]

EDIT: Changed the name so I can showcase all of my banners here.

A new age in my banners is dawning, meaning a new thread is too. I will post my new creations here.

Well, the side tag thing doesn't match the other 8/9, nor compliment it. It's a little too simple, and nothing stands out except what looks bad. Then again, I can't use Photoshop to save my life, so...

It's actually london.

And I made the sky myself, so nobody tell me it's just a photograph. Cutting those two buildings out was hard.

I would prefer crits over praise on this one. I need all the help I can get.
Good job...
But You have made better banners than that!
the sky is hand made...Very impressive :P

More contrast

thinner bar at the end

use a bigger stock so you can make your sig a pinch longer

when taking a photo, go for the best possible angle. You have a good idea on this one, but you have to realize photography is an art in and of itself, and if you already realize that, you're either just ignoring that realization or I don't like this photo out of personal opinion.


I mean come on, what building is that? Is that a skyscraper? If so, why didn't you accentuate its dominating appearance? If it's a lame tiny building, why are you using it as a stock?


overall, good though. on the scale of 1-2, it gets a 2


Oh, and by "real design" I seriously hope you don't consider Ac's, VT's, or dare I say to a lesser extent even my own work to be "real design." Photomanip can only really go as far as the photo.

I've already linked to this place once, but this kind of thing is what I personally consider to be "real design": http://www.visionafar.com/va.html

I mean compared to what I usually do: use downloaded brushes and add text or stock or effects.

And thanks for the crits, sk.

*Bumpy*
I made a new banner, I want to know what you think. I don't like it as much as the first, honestly:



I honestly don't know where this is, I just got the nice title from Mario's post.

It looks fairly simple, yet I have no doubt it isn't. It's quaint, nothing's overdone at all and is pretty nicely done. I like the way the light source looks almost as if it's glinting off the windows too. I personally prefer it to the skyline one myself. Nice work.

I love the skyline banner.
I don't really know what to think of the hometown one...

Thanks! It actually wasn't too complex, the only thing really handmade in the photo IS the light source...

And here's a new one:
