I was bored, so I decided to do some photoshopping again (has been a while though)
As I'm literally in love with this site, I thought why not make a banner.
Anyway, feel free to use it if you like it, no hard feelings if you decide not to ;)

Anyway, I made the banner a little big smaller, but higher, so it would fit the main site better, I also made a new gamertag just for the banner, with somehwat photoshopping I was able to +rep myself, and giving me a 10K gamerscore :woop:

Below is my banner, and the default one, so you can compare

Note: This is in no way a flame towards the creator of the default banner. I respect that person for taking the time and effeort to create a banner!

Personally I like the font used on the default banner over the one I used.
Maybe the creator is willing to tell me which font has been used?

Me likey. Only suggestion I have would be maybe a different font for the 'every point counts' and 'Xbox 360 Achievements' parts. But otherwise, very nice.

That's is very minor but I agree with it. Otherwise, looks very nice.

I agree aswell, I still have the .psd file, so if someone can tell me which font has bene used, I can edit it!

That is great. I would like to see the gamercard combined with the first one.

Excellent work on the banner :)

When i added the "every point counts" slogan to the banner I saw that it was the "Xbox 360 font" :)

I'll see if I find it again.

I;ll fix it up when I get hom,e, some minor things that I wanna change

It's ok, but there are things you could change. Like the font's in the center and bottom right also the cropping of the xbox makes it look quite rough around the edegs. Good layout though.

like the new one, but 2 issues

1 there may be copyright infringements etc with the charcters
2 the quality is crap!! dunno if its my pc but its blurred etc and looks quite bad. great idea, but just not sharp enough

not trying to sound harsh or anything lol

quality is fine here, must be your pc then, but you have a point about the copyright thing, I'll try to remove them, so it meets bunnies wishes....;)

EDIT: check the new one in the first post
Now if a moderator would be so nice ad edit the poll, so it now has 4 options....that would be appreciated

How about flipping around the gamercard and the text(making the xbox360achievements texts a little bigger) and make it the same height as the first banner ? i'd like to see it. But very nice without all the characters.

I like the 2nd to last the best. I would like to see the font larger though (a little larger than the last one)

Also, could I get the file, so I can mess with it a little?

DaKing are you left handed? Just wondering...

Upon further inspection, I like the last one the best. It appears different when I look at the banner by itself.

I edited the last one, so it now has the correct font.
Enjoy

Hmmmm, not a fan of the new font. Looks a bit too aged if you know what I mean. I think we need a new age font, more rounded, well IMO that is.

BloodyBunnies
03-23-2006, 11:13 AM
I have to agree, the original font you had Looked better on it.

Chimaera

BTW, for those of you think who think the quality is bad...just click the picture so you'll see it full size.
The forum resizes it automatically, so that's why the quality is crap

BTW, I've been pm-ing with RoutineX about the sizes, so it should be up pretty soon

Everytime there has been some Images updated I have to delete my Temperary files:confused: And btw, it's also on the Forum.

Looks pretty good. I like it :D

BTW - Nukeshell nice one on the top 5 on FPS, but how the hell does Ghost Recon class as FPS, lol :p

The current banner is great, I really like the darker theme. Only thing is font, but I think it can do for now, you've done really well ! :]

I made a new profile on xbox.com
And I photoshopped the reputation and the gamerscore.
It's kinda hard to decide which one of the real gamercards should be on the main page...that's why I made a new, neutral, one. And because 0 gamerpoints and the average reputation looks kinda sad, I used my PS skills ;)


BTW Thanx for all the compliments

Off topic: You can choose between first person view and over shoulder view. Of course I use Over shoulder but that doesn't matter;)

On topic: It was a good choice to use that Gamertag instead of someone's.

:offtopic: Completed this game now and never knew that, lol. Love it on the old third person view.

On topic --> Is there any way to put that banner on the new skin we purchased?? Would look cool then :cool:
