[size=1]You're definitely getting there, and I can see flashes of greatness in your works.

There's two things plaguing you right now. [B]1)[/B] Your text is relatively weak and ends up dragging the piece down with it. You wre getting there with the Balmung banner, keep doing things that way. [B]2)[/B] You lose the stock in the brush-work half the time, which is the most important part. Try defining it a bit more with like an overlay layer for the stock, or just lowering the opacity of the overlapping layers.

Two questions for you:

[B]1:[/B] How long have you been working with the program you're currently using?
[B]2:[/B] Are you using pre-made or self-made brushes?[/size]

[QUOTE=Azarath]Those are awesome. You are a great artist.
:catgirl:[/QUOTE]
[size=1]That's a very nice thing to say, Azarath. However, nice comments don't help people improve. Explaining what you think was "awesome" will help the artist know what made it look good for future reference. You should also include something they could improve as well, since nothing is perfect.

In addition, please read the [url=http://www.otakuboards.com/rules.php][b]Official OtakuBoards Rules[/b][/url] and the [url=http://www.otakuboards.com/showthread.php?t=52171][b]Art Studio Rules[/b][/url] to know what is expected of you as far as post quality goes.

Thank you for your cooperation, patience, and interest.[/size]

I've always had problems with text. -__-;

To answer your questions, Retribution:
1. I use Photoshop 7, and I've been using it for about 2 months.
2. I really don't use brushes at all... I told you in the PM I sent you. :)

Thanks for the comments! Any more?

Mostly, nicely done~ I love the light effects~


I'm totally digging the one of K' *heart* but that's probably because I'm biased XD *fangirl* but he does seem awfully faded/washed out/something like that compaired to everything else O_o because the other elements are very dark. Because of the lighting, I feel like there should still be some darker areas on him. Does that make sense?

The one of Angel and the pokemon (I don't know what it's called T_T) look really plain because there is a lot of negative space... I mean, there's space in the others too, but it's more interesting. They just seem really empty.

The yellow bar on the pokemon one is also sorta O_o weird

I'm not sure why, but I also find Dizzy's wing...er... things (I dont' know what to call them XD;;; ) rather distracting... maybe because they are so small and cut off in comparison to Dizzy?

I also rather like the Ky/Balmung banner~ the space is filled nicely ^_^ and the text used there is interesting.
