Proposing a New Banner

Post by Khina Bree on Sun Oct 09, 2016 5:04 pm

First topic message reminder :

Hello MADA.

I've worked on a potential new banner for our site, but I figure it better I post it for you all to view before even asking it to be put up.

I've spent the last few days tweaking it and making changes, and after showing a few members already, I think I have a final version. However if it needs more, I can add more.

I'm just getting fed up with hearing about the current banner whenever I think I have a half-decent replacement. I actually want this forum to look good, and presently, it does not.

Your asking for something to be replaced, comparisons are gonna happen regardless. People are going to think one or the other is better. If you don't want it compared to the current one then don't "propose" it as a replacement. But if something is going to be replaced I am going to compare, in how I see it, the quality between the two and decide which one I think is better. You yourself put it up for comparison when you put it up as a replacement.

I actually think this site looks pretty nice for the most part with the only kinda meh part being the main better (not having gfx for every single section of the forum has kinda grew on me and it makes it look more neat to a degree).

I would like a new main banner as well because I'm not all that enthusiastic about the current one myself but your Halloween one has similar problems that the current one has (which leads to further comparison on my part since they have a similar direction) of it being to barren and not really popping out enough, it also has the additional problem of conflicting color schemes. But its not like any of that isn't fixable. In terms of fixing the barrenness you just need more of a detailed background beyond a color and one thing, not to say it isn't a good start, but between the background and render there is just too much of a gap and the background just doesn't take up enough space in general and the rest is just black, which is kinda boring. Hell just adding some stars or something would go a long way in helping it feel more full. The color part is a problem with the green. It conflicts too much with the orange and black nor do I think of Halloween when I see green. Yellow or Gray would be much better towards Halloween and complimenting the black and orange color scheme. And as already mentioned I found the border to be pretty jarring. Also good to remember the simple doesn't have to equal lack of detail but with just simple detail.

Here's an example of a gfx piece that I like that I see as simple yet detailed and doesn't feel empty.

Now the new one you've posted is better, I'd probably give it a 7 out of ten. Its better then the current one we have, as I see it, but I still have a few problems with it. Again there is the border, this is really just a matter of tastes but I just don't like borders around sigs and banners and what not as it just looks bad to me. It also has this blurry feel to it that bugs me a bit and makes me feel like I have to squint at it. And it still seems a bit empty but not overly so but could use a little bit more detail.

Remember of all the banners I've seen this site go through the one I liked the best was the one YOU made with the spellbooks, that one was pretty damn good imo, like a solid 8.5/10.

The Spellbook banner was one of my worst-received pieces .-.

Bump

I'm very interested in trying to get this [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] banner the "thumbs-up" for being used as the new official main banner.

If anyone wants it, or has suggestions to make it better, please say so.

When I look at it I feel like I have to squint at it because it looks a bit blury/fuzzy. Anyway you can uncrease the sharpness?

And is it pissible to get a more detailed space background for it?

I could try a different background. I wanted the dragons to look shadowy though.

Perhaps he meant the lettering being more visible?
