    I can post some examples, but not because you think I'm a critic from my comments to AADP. I said he could do it too!

    Here's a few of'em.

    This was my first one :(

    This was completed March 2004. Basically the last 'project' I did.

    Everything was created by me on this with the exception of the MSN and ICQ logos.[/quote:qlbuiuug]

    Wow so you actually drew and rendered all those banners yourself no Screen shots or images borrowed? No images used or layered? I'm impressed. I for one could never draw a picture of Lambeau like the one in your banner? Heres my secret I take pictures and crop them and candy em up in Fireworks adjust hues and what not and walla Banner, I would never have the time to pump out 2 to 3 banners a day with all original art no way I have a social life too and family. So if I wanted to make a banner with say "Robots" in the banner I would probably take a screen shot of lets say Red Faction a PC game and crop it and Candy it up in Photoshop, I wouldnt have time to "Hand Digital Draw" a robot the best route would be to take some screen shots of a video game and go from there. What ever works and gets the point across right?

    thank you ... i try not to get into it much... it becomes an obession of mine verrrry easily. Some get addicted to drinking, drugs, spending money, i get addicted to photoshop and being a comp geek lol


    I don't hand draw anything, which is why I took a knack for Photoshop. Some of them I created with PS, more so I took images, cropped them out and styled'em up a bit.
    Voila, sig!

    Layers are a Photoshoppers best friend. The last sig I made was completely created by me and photoshop with the two icons ripped from ICQ and MSN. How that turned out I was impressed.

    Hey GP, where did you get all of those sweet fonts? I only have the boring fonts that came with my system. Did you buy a disc with like a billion cool looking fonts or something?

    Ive got a couple of questions.

    first, How much does the prgram used to make those cost?

    next, Where do you get the cool green backrounds?

    finally, Can someone make me a cool banner?

    billions of dollars.

    they are created in an underground labratory far beyond the reaches of ordinary human beings like you or me.

    of course!

    ...for billions of dollars. :cry:
