Like I said, this was a first draft (well 2nd draft to be exact), so I didn't bother with the text yet. Now I know what to do with them Thanks for the comment!!!

There's too much orange Also, the blurry and the sharpen parts contrast too much =/

Also, this are just personal preferences.. but I think Animesuki text should take center stage... and the image to compliment it.. not the other way around.

I like the orange, it's different. Maybe make the clouds more there.

Mm, I think the render is a little big too big and this prevents the "sky" tone from really coming out, but that is just IMHO

Edit: my progress, got rid of the black thingy around the sun and moved the font, still in search for a good font though

yea i think the right type of font is in order now...but the positioning is gonig to be awkward seen as youve left very little space in which to put the text...the banner risks blocking out the middle section too much which can lower "peaceful" the effect :/

Hmm I think I like the first one better, the 2nd one is a little crowded IMHO, but I like the color of the sky in the 2nd one better lol

Having 2 characters that close together kinda doesnt suit my taste lol, gomenasai!!!


As for my own banner, I tried to make the fonts have less impact but I guess I failed

I'ld prefer the first one too. Colors harmonize better and it looks not so packed. Airyness and a packed banner that just doesn't work. Airyness/Skyiness (sorry if made up words that doesn't exist) is about lots of space

Another vote for the first one.

Looks a little empty on the left side, though.

I agree with Ice climbers the first one is better but it would be nicer if it had a deeper blue sky colouring like the second one.

Version 2 of the second banner. I tried to make it futiuristic looking (since the pic looks like one) but at the same time matches to the sky background.....I think

Yes I think this is a good stylistic element. The character is a little blury though, maybe something can be done to improve this a little ^^

2 words riker : the font.
aside of the point, i think the other problem is the great difference in contrast between the hat and the character.
the brightness is also a bit weird, since if we consider the character, the light comes from the bottom right, which isn't really something conventional ^^"

i like the colors, and the sky effect is simple and effective (might require a bit more cloud, but that's it)

I'll have to agree with Jinto Lin, the character does still look a little blurry. With the futuristic look, I think it stands out a bit too much, IMO. You can probably try lowering the opacity by a little bit.
