Well the time has come. I haven't posted my graphics on here for quite some time (my old thread's probably on the last page by now lol). On another site, I challenged myself to make at least a graphic a day between June 27 and Aug 1, and here they are!!!! :) I also joined the graphic makers cook-off on a-u for the first time. I know I shouldn't double post, but I'm gonna divide these into 2 posts because there is just so much stuff. comments are always welcome.

For more of my stuff, check out: http://z4.invisionfree.com/Lord_ofthe_C ... ry22008614

Starting with the cook-off stuff.

I really love your Merlin blends from waaay back when, and the Elrond Half-Elven banner, and the Bilbo/"there and back again" one! And of course, everything from this new update because SWAN PRINCESS and Poirot and Celeborn and Sam. Good. Yes. Much love. :D

Damson, you have some really creative graphics here! :yes: I especially like the Arwen & Aragorn, Amon Sul, and Dragonlord ones from the recent update, and the Rosie Cotton is another favorite from earlier.

The main suggestion I have is that some of your banners, like this: Image seem overloaded with texture that is sort of distracting and takes away some of the sharpness and clarity of the images. Maybe you could try using different layer settings or lower opacity levels for the textures? Also, some of the text on your banners seems too large or bold, but maybe that's just my taste. :P Hope this helps! :D

Yeah...I tend to have good and bad days with textures lol. sometimes they work out brilliantly and sometimes they end up worse than that Bilbo one :blush: and sometimes I just go with it cause nothing is working out any better (and Bilbo's a prime example). :frust: Occasionally, I go back through and remake things, so I'll add Bilbo to the list.

I'd like to hear more about the text though if you don't mind elaborating. I have more trouble with text than anything else, so I'm always looking for suggestions.

If you have time to look at some of my stuff on LotC (the link in my first post), there are some better (and worse lol) examples too...
