This is amazing! I really like how you blended it so well - it looks like it could be on a postcard!
Also, the What a wonderful world banner inspires me somehow.
Thanks; I love wolves and when I had chosen that image to use, I decided to make a vertical banner out of it because of the wolf's stance.
The "It's a Wonderful World" banner is a "The World Ends With You" banner; I'm not that particularly fond of it, since during the time it was made, every other banner I had made looked good to me.
You've got some lovely work here. My favorite would be the Metroid banner. The lighting effects on it look really awesome.
If you're looking for critique, my suggestion would be to concentrate more on your text effects. Some of your text looks kinda lost in the background. Text Effects are a personal difficult of mine, so I know how hard it can be to get it to look just right.
Anyway, your art is wonderful, and I hope you keep up the good work.
Another person that likes a banner that I'm not too fond of; I made a few days after the Megaman one, so the idea's nearly the same, just with Samus instead of Megaman--and flipped the other way. I was trying to find some new things to do with that banner, but I had exhausted them all on the first.
Thanks, and I know my text is weak. That's where I fail on banners--I'm considering nothing but simple text with maybe a drop shadow or glow and that's it. But that's boring and I don't like boring. I'll keep working on the text.
New Banners, whee...the last two were for a fic that I was going to write for here--I learned that I actually couldn't (doesn't portray to some sort of media), so here are the banners.
