Art Shippo's [final] Banner thread


Recommended Posts

Yes,...I'm sorry for posting so many threads with just one banner. I decided to make another one of these banner threads. But I beg of you to please keep this thread alive... one post is even ample.

Anyway, I'll start with two new signatures:

This was made for Japan 86:


And this is a sig I made for myself:

[COLOR="#004a6f"]Wow. These banners are awesome. Comparing the two, I'd say I like the one you made for Japan86 more than the one you made for yourself. I think you should have made the words a little bigger on yours. They're a little bit difficult to read. I also think you could have made your a little more complex. Other than that, I give them both a thumbs up.[IMG]http://fanart.theotaku.com/thumbup.gif[/IMG]

P.S. I promise to keep your thread alive if you keep [URL=http://www.otakuboards.com/showthread.php?t=38851]mine alive[/URL]. It's a graphics program help thread and you seem like you know your stuff.[/COLOR]

Enjoy, C & C would be really appreciated...

Done with a lot of photoshop, and a really hard to see c4d render.

[COLOR="#004a6f"]Oooh yes, I like this one better than the pink banner you made. The words are easier to see than the other one. I love the background as well. Good stuff.[IMG]http://www.otakuboards.com/images/icons/icon14.gif[/IMG]

P.S: Sorry it took so long to reply again, I'm not breaking our 'deal' (lol). Exams are close by and the stress is killing me.[/COLOR]

Japan-I like it. The pictures are well placed, the banner seems appropriate, and the text is easy to read (a difficulty with multi-color background for me).

Yours-Like Chabichou said, the text is hard to read. However, it looks pretty dang good.

Kakashi-The picture seems a little...washed out, or something. However, it is quite good.

You get ULX's seal of approval (which doesn't really mean much, since my opinion isn't that important to most people here...or most people I know, for that matter...I've depressed myself now... :wigout: )

Wow I'm amazed by the sheer quality of all of these sigs, they're soem of the best I've evr seen.

You must be very skillled.

Here's my ratings which don't work out from a scale from 1 to ten here we go.
4)15 just cause I like KH and he's oen of my favourite people in it and then the other 50 points cause it's good quality.

[size=1][color=darkblue]Wow, Shippo, these are really good. I've always found it hard to take my eyes off your banners, especially your backgrounds, which have always been magnificent. I am really taking a liking to that Riku one and your other blue one. I can't say anyting apart from the fact that these are wonderful. Keep up the great work. ^_^[/color][/size]

Thank you two so much for replying! If you ever need anyting in the future, feel free to give me a PM. I've just recently made a new banner out of experimenting and what not with photoshop again.


If anyone wants this banner, just say so. I'll edit it, so It'll have your username rather than "kagome". Of course, Unless you'd like to keep it that way.

[COLOR=Navy]Hey Shippo!

I love your banners!! As you can see, I'm still using the banner you made me of Syaoran from Card Captor Sakura. I love it!

I love the banner for Japan. I can see the lines that go through it and it gives it a very special effect which I can't describe.

The sig you made for yourself was pretty cool, I like the purple colour and that effect you always make for your backgrounds. What is it? I'd really like to know.

The Kakashi banner is great, the blue goes well with the patchy background, the slightly rugged words and the slightly washed out picture, along with the words "away" written in black cursive near the bottom.

The Riku banner is one of my favourites. You gotta love that background. It's like different types of text just put there, making a wicked background. The soft blue you used captures Riku, because it's misty with white spots amongst it.

And Finally, I love the Kagome Banner!! I love the squares in the corner and the font you used for "Kagome". I think the only problem I have with it is the picture you used on the right. Her face is a bit too bright for my liking. But it's still good.

Clicks(Too much Queer Eye for me) to you Shippo, keep up the good work.
Please don't stop posting your banners, they're great!!

[Once again thanking you for my banner ^_^][/COLOR]

[size=1][color=#696969]Oh my. Outstanding work, Shippo. I must say...I am in awe of your work! You and several others, whom I cannot remember, are outstanding in this! Well...here is my feedback.

1) The two character faces are clear and not grainy. The lines that go through the banner is amazing and does not intrude the crisp pictures. Also, the Mecha in the middle puncutuates the banner quite well. At first when I looked at it, I thought it was only an abstract picture, but it was merely a mecha.

2) The character's face, the title, the colors. They flow well. They make the banner, not as if it was an AD-like banner, but a movie-like banner. I hope that isn't confusing as it may sound, but. They blend altogether.

3) *drools* Kakashi...Oh. Anyways, uhm. I would like to say that the banner makes Kakashi a much, more mysterious person. He has this, sort of...blend. LoL. But...I am intriguied by the way you are able to have a multi-color background and yet...I don't know. >_<

4) Now, the Riku banner. Quite well put. The blue gives it an accentuated fade to the picture. The colors blend, the words are clear. The banner holds many qualities in itself and the background words are absolutely exquisite.

5) I love the way your yellow just puts itself out and how Kagome's picture fades into it, while it strengthens it. You have a ghost-like picture of Kagome and a solid-like picture, which gives it the affect of a dreaming Kagome, in a way. Outstanding.

Shippo, I must say, I love your banners. You have a way of bringing out the true characteristics of the characters. You bring this great sense of beauty and color, at the same time quality. I don't know, but I can't really bring it to words of how beautiful and awesome your banners are. I am truly in awe.[/size][/color]

*drools* I love the banners, Shippo-kun (don't ask, I've gotten into this whole Japanese ending thingie...)
I see you've gotten into this whole...er, psuedo 3D thing (I dunno what to call it!). They really awesome and make me wanna kill you for having such awesome banner-making skills. *sweatdrop*
Okay, skimming through...

[b]Demon Eyes Kyo -[/b] Well well, it seems you've discovered the hell-hole of the eraser tool. ^^; The image seems to be hastily cut in places, and there appears to be little blobs at the very top of the spike crevices. The background is really - no other word for it - beautiful. It's very lush and bright with a distinct shading pallet.

[b]Riku -[/b] Again, really cool. Extremely simple, but has a really good edge to it. The background is awesome (I love blue!) and seems to reflect the expression of the character.

[b]Kagome -[/b] I dunno...this one gives me a headache...although I do have a headache... *sweatdrop*
The image on the left seems really...out of place. Her expression doesn't seem to match the mood the background is creating. The yellow seems relaxed and washed out, and the image on the right is exact portraince of that. But the one on the left...eh, doesn't seem right.

Over all, it's a great comeback batch, Shippo-ku - *whacks herself for almost saying -kun*
