First up I would like to draw some attention to this thread for anybody who can help with the issue

And back on topic... I was planning to update my banner last night and have done:



And shortly after thought heck why not make a few more just to get back into the process again... and as such, a few more came about based on whoever was signed into the forum and who I recognised...

So first up was baxslash...


baxslash Static Banner

I suppose the idea is clear right?


baxslash Animated Avatar

Here is an animated avatar version for you

Next was bitJericho...


bitJericho Static Banner


bitJericho Animated Banner

I do portray him that way, as some sort of High Level Ninja in the dark... I have an awesome idea for this to be animated, I hope he asks for it Avatar as well!

And then came Burning Feet Man...


Burning Feet Man Static Banner

Which is self explanatory lol...

Moving onto Thraxas...


Thraxas Static Banner

Another self explanatory one...

In comes one I really liked but did not spend enough time refining, but the concept is there The Slayer...


The Slayer Static Banner

This is the static one...


The Slayer Animated Banner

An animated version, this has been through three iterative processes so far...


The Slayer Animated Avatar

And an animated avatar to match too

And finally Green Gandalf...


Green Gandalf Static Banner

I decided to omit a background for that one so that it can blend in with the new posts and seen posts...


Green Gandalf Animated Banner

Here it is animated


Green Gandalf Animated Avatar

And an animated avatar to match

I suppose you could imagine my banners being interpretations of how your usernames inspire me to make a game and how those titles may look lol...

Anybody wanting a request for me to make some simple banners like these, just shout out, and I can have something to do when I am at my shop lol... I honestly cannot focus when I am here, I have so many books to study... but it is difficult...

Hope you guys like these, I hope to make more for some of my excellent friends on here... as well as the rest of you of which are also excellent in so many ways...



Ask away, and please do comment or steal these banners! [ excluding mine of course ]

EDIT - Multiple

Another, hopefully this can cheer Yodaman Jer up


Yodaman Jer Static Banner

Inspired by Super Man

Another for Mobiius...


Mobiius Static Banner 001

While the above first version was based on the number of characters in his username... here is a 90 degree based one... version 2


Mobiius Static Banner 002

And here it is animated...


Mobiius Animated Banner


Mobiius Animated Avatar

This was my original design idea... but decided to limit the first version to his username character length... Animated Avatar now included

Now this was a tough one, swissolo\\\'s...


swissolo Static Banner

The banner version presented some design challenges of its own, first, what to create a connection to... second to use bold or normal thickness fonts... the result speaks for itself, elegant I call it too...


swissolo Static Avatar

The avatar was interesting too...

I then went about making an animated version of it...


swissolo Animated Banner


swissolo Animated Avatar

One that I was looking forward to designing, however I do have another design in mind for this one...


Dark Frager Animated Banner

Now you know how some good films go straight to DVD? this one bypassed the static image and went straight to animated


Dark Frager Animated Avatar

Matching animated avatar


Nabz_32x Animated Avatar

I enjoyed this one, if I were to redo it I would add some form of Glow effects


Dark Java Dude 64 [formally Dark Basic Dude 79] Animated Banner

I could not think of anything more fitting than a Dot Matrix Printer styling on this one

For The Zoq2, I had planned for moving stars in the background but maybe another version...


The Zoq2 Animated Avatar

And I also made this random Avatar for anybody who feels a little shifting moods recently


Random Moods Animated Avatar

Later came one for Dar13


Dar13 Animated Banner


Dar13 Animated Avatar

A little later I then made something I have been thinking of for ages...


Mobiius Banner [Modified by me] Animated Banner

Soon after came one for Kezzla...


Kezzla Animated Banner


Kezzla Animated Avatar

And then came along something for Burger...


Burger Animated Banner


Burger Animated Avatar


Gingerkid Jack Animated Banner


mr Handy Animated Banner


mr Handy Animated Avatar


Johnski Animated Banner

Dark Java Dude 64 Static Banner

OTHER CATEGORY ITEMS:


Loading Bar Test

More to come...

Yep - I knew I should have checked the tags first, i.e. before parading my ignorance to all and sundry. But then why break the habit of a lifetime?

Thank you too. I'll use that till someone comes up with something better.

Hey, MrValentine! Nice banners you made there! Boredom and creativity are nice ingredients to make great art!
Which reminds me *** double face palm ***, I still have something to send you (you'll probably have an idea what I'm talking about, right?).
Been sooooo busy lately that I completely lost track of things. Very sorry about that, man! Just a question though, is teh one I sent you last good enough? I need to know so that I can render the final high quality version and send you.
I might just throw in a few bonus skies just for you.

I'm so honoured you've created a banner with my (forum)name on it, dude! Thaaaaaaaaaaaanks!

Haha... awesome!

The Slayer - yours will require some considerable time... and I have just half an hour before the outlet closes...

let me have a try, should be done shortly... if not I will continue at home later and get both an avatar and banner done in full...

EDIT

Green Gandalf - I can do this every time I am at the shop lol which is usually just 2 days a week but this week it hit 3...

Hopefully this can liven up the forum a little

Awesome, MrValentine! I like it!
Just one thing...would it be possible to make the letters have an orange/yellow vertical gradient, or maybe even animated flames? ?
I could do it myself, but it's up to you. If you have the time/inspiration?

EDIT: Checking to see if new awesome banner works.

EDIT2: Hum...appearantly, it didn't not. Trying once more.

You, you made me a banner? *blush* Kinda lost for words, thank you!

I recall a previous avatar of Mobiius, this weird zooming in & out of an aliens face... I actually went to the effort of script blocking that sucker! It was scary!

Question; how should we all collaborate to make MrValentine a new avatar & banner?
