I voted for 6, The detail is amazing and overall, it looks the most 'Christmassy' out of all the entries.

It was a tough choice between entry number 3 and entry number 6, but I have to go with entry number 6. I think the banner looks really special with the snow border and the background fits the theme of Christmas very well. The only thing I didn't like very much is the font but otherwise I really like it.

Entry number 1 looked a bit too plain for me and the text isn't very readable.

Entry number 2 looks also plain and it's not very Christmas themed.

Entry number 4 looks cool because of the animation but I don't like the banner itself and the font neither.

Entry number 5 is too over-textured and the animation doesn't look good.
 
This was a tough one, I loved both entires 4 and 6, but my descision is entry 4. The creativity used in a banner and its perfect christmas theme brings out the whimsical sparkle in it, excellen job...

Number 1 is too bright imo and the text is pretty difficult to read.

Number 2 is two girls dressed in Christmas outfits in close-to-provocative poses. Not exactly Christmas-related that much in all honesty and it's bland.

The colours look nice in Number 3.

Number 4 is a bunch of animated sprites on a plain background with text slapped on.

The animation looks terribly messy in Number 5, it's very difficult to see and read the text as well.

Not a fan of the text or background on Number 6.

So because I think the rest are terrible, I vote for #3 by default. Plus it has text which works so yay.

Honestly this took me FOREVER to decide....> . >
But in the end I choose number 5. c:
I think the animation should have maybe been a 'fade in and out' animation or something like that... But I still really loved it!> u <
I feel as if a lot of effort was put into it.~
And I loved the (main) picture that was used for it, it suited the banner and theme perfectly. And I also love the textures and brushes as well as the font that was used. ^ 0 ^
Excellent job.:3

First time voting for one of these contests and this is a very easy decision for me.

Entry 1 - It doesn't seem very Christmassy at all. The image is cute and all, but the choice is odd to say the least - Leafeon is not actually a Pokemon I would associate with this holiday. Had this been a Winter-themed banner, it would have made more sense. In addition, the text should stand out more.

Entry 2 - Again, same thing as the first entry. I don't know what strawberries have to do with the holidays. Aside from the Santa outfit, this banner doesn't make you think of Christmas straight away. It's too simple with the background being just one color. The dimension are odd, as well. To be honest, it just seems like you put renders on a background.

Entry 4 - Well, this is certainly the most unique of the lot. I dislike the font and find the animation quite strange. The way the Stantlers move back and forth, while Delibird pops up and down kind of freaks me out - Not really your fault, but it just bugs me.

Entry 5 - I think I know who made this one, but I'm going to be really honest here. I dislike the red border - try using a more natural shade of red and not the kind that is in Paint as it's much too bright. I don't really like the font used and I personally think that text should never overlap onto animation. There's nothing too bad with the animation part, but the textures are way too overdone. Sometimes keeping it simple is the best way to go.

Entry 6 - Out of all the banners, this one is the most Christmassy one. However, I think it has too much. For one, the pop-out part doesn't seem to fit the rest of the banner. The size is a little too big for my liking. On the upside, I do like the Pikachu art in the background.

So, it has to be entry number 3. I don't think I have anything bad to say about this one. I love the red in this banner, in fact all the colors work very well. The artwork is super cute and the text fits. Not to mention, you can definitely tell it is a Christmas banner. Simple and to the point, that's all it needs.

Sadly, most of these banners are not very good to me. Some banners have nice features, but none are that good overall.

Entry 1: When I look at this banner, I see a cute render on an all too simple background. Neither Pokemon I could really associate with Christmas (no, Ice-type does not automatically mean Christmas). The winter background fits, but there's nothing really to it. Same with the text. It's too simple.

Entry 2: This doesn't really seem like a Christmas-themed banner (or even a banner, at that). Sure, the renders have Santa hats, but what's a strawberry doing in there? Not to mention there's absolutlely nothing to the background. Also, I don't know why you chose those dimensions.

Entry 3: Nothing wrong with this one. Nice size, nice render, not too simple or busy, and you incorperated Christmas well. This is my favorite banner.

Entry 4: The idea is better than the banner. I don't like the fact that the banner is mostly sprite-based, and the fact that all of the stantler move in unison is... odd. I like the font and the idea, but that's about it.

Entry 5: I don't like the amount of texture on this banner. Texture is nice, but I think too much isn't. Also, the text is hard to read and I don't like the picture slideshow. Everything else is nice, though.

Entry 6: My second favorite. It's the best at incorperating Christmas, but the font is too much. I don't like the amount of snowflakes bordering the text, and I don't like the layer of snow on top. Overall, it's a nice banner.


So I voted for Entry 3. By far the best one.
