Rate the banner above you :)

Rules.

1. Have a banner.

2. Don't over post.

3. Either use a simple 1-10 rating system, however critique would be cool as well.



(In honor of my newly formed banner!)

P.s
If there is an thread for these please post me in the right direction.

8/10

I like the stock images used, they're pretty sweet. The left one with the insectoid reminds me of (old school) War of the Worlds. IMO, better blending of the character next to your text to either make him stand out, or blend into the image would've made it a bit better though ... I can't exactly tell what I'm looking at XD

Its an oldie i made a few years ago under a different username (Eridanus), but modified for my new username XD

7.5/10
Too colourful for my tastes. Not a fan of Roller skates, flames and spiky anime hair. In my honest opinion looks like a jumbled mess, sorry

I like The simplicity of it, I think it would be better if you used all the area you had and the image was longer. Also a very small splash of even one color would be cool, one bird with a red eye or even a red character in the name.

It's like 6 images all throughout, and looking back I should have cut off the white in the image of the pilot so I could have blended him into the scene more. I did want to go for an older look so i atleast achieved that. Thanks for the feedback!

One of the five elements that build the Earth, o great creator of flames. The light of salvation that gives birth to life, the light of judgment that punishes evildoers. While bringing peace and stability at the same time, it also destroys the cold and dark misfortune. Fire is the name, sword is the title! Show yourself, swallow thyself, turn it into power!

Great use of similar color pallet and anime art style.  

My banner is a work in progress

Even if it is a work in progress i can give an 8/10. The effects are simple but the concept is original and looks very nice though.

Would give 9/10 if your Hi-Nu Gundam banner had something filling the sides or simply shortened the width of your banner...
So until then, I give it a 6/10.

And its about rating each other's banners. Derp. I like it, personally i would like a bit more color, but the red HUD-esque text and lines are awesome.

Lots of sweet banners on here!
I figured out MS Paint this week and used some filters and an overlay off Photobucket on mine.
After it was all said and done I posted with some pride at my handiwork.
Then I noticed yesterday....I had an S/plural on Wandering Gun.
Fugit.

8/10 for you Garuda,it's clean but kinda vague for us non Anime(_).

Like the dirty film grain look of it.
The image overall is simple, but interesting. I appreciate simplicity more than anything else in photographs and art.
8-1 (for the s you're too lazy to fix)

Agree about that, i think that something more militaristic would fit better.

9/10 I like the photoshop effects added, Japan is weird though, never understood why people like Hatsune Miku, but anyway it looks good, not too large or obtrusive, which is good. Although i have a weird feeling some creep is masturbating to that picture <_<
