These look like a good start! Have you made graphics before, or are you just beginning?

Some comments:
You seem to have a good idea of blending technique so far, especially in the second banner. I also like the style of your fonts, although I do think that it is sort of distracting to have some of the text over Denethor's forehead in the first banner, so maybe you can work on text placement in your future graphics.

Keep up the good work! :)

I think they look great, especially when these are the first banners you've ever made :) I like how blended and smooth the pictures in both banners look, it gives them a kind of softness.

These look great! Especially for starting! :D I agree about the blending comments, you seem to have that down pretty well. My next step I would work on is making everything seem like "one" image... the easiest way for me is to add a texture or color layer to the top and overlay/soft/hard light it to make all the images match in color/contrast/etc... it makes it feel more cohesive.

Hope that helps! Keep up the good work!
