Ho-oh UPN's New Banner

Okay, so I've been mulling over wanting to change UPN around a little bit, and thought to start with the UPN forums banner.
Here is the first concept I came up with:



Hopefully it'll show up.
Going for the HeartGold/SoulSilver theme, but I'm open to suggestions, criticism, etc.

Or if you make something better, by all means, post it!

Look great, but will be... interesting together with the green-black, no?

The green can be changed to a darker orange, and I think that would take care of it.

I don't mind it with just the way it is now, but I'm not terribly picky myself.

If you can remove the green then I'm with you all the way!

It is photoshopped... XD
(As is the one that we currently use)

As for Muyo...thanks...your unending support is what keeps me from ending my life...

Meh, I'll try to make a better one. I can't draw that great/don't have the means to transfer any decent drawings to a computer, so I use photoshop.
Going to change around and make a greener version...

Make something with an Eeveelution. IIRC, all the old banners had an Eevee. The purple/blue one with Vaporeon, Dark Umbreon, Red one with Flareon? Stuff like that.

I know, but that was made over five years ago :x

GTS+ makes good banners with several layering and texturing effects... My Photoshop account ran out ages ago so I can't have a go, but I don't mind the current banner. It has the whole nostalgic feel to it and its quite dark and neutral.

I use several layers and textures...>.>

Anywho, here's a different line, I call it...ummm...Comic Banners?



I know it's not the prettiest thing in the world, still working on getting better at photoshop, but at least figured to share :x

Jumpluff Jumpluff sez: It's a reflex for me to point out when anyone uses Papyrus.

I actually sorta like the Body Slam banner, but Papyrus isn't working on that at all. I wouldn't mind whipping up a quick banner with the Body Slam concept and seeing what people think.

I don't like it. I think Hippowdon should be winning the fight.

I was waiting for you to show up and say that. It was so predictable that it crossed the threshold of safe predictability.

Well, it was either that or a joke about Firewater's reffing.

Yeah I happen to agree, but with all Hippo's sand and such, I couldn't shy away from using it!
I'm still a giant novice at photoshop, so I would definitely not mind you making one as well, lol.

I've got several high-res photos of pokemon (1000x1000 gifs, very hq) that I can pass on if you need.
I forgot the site I found them from, japanese of course, but if I find it, I'll post it.

I wonder just how many people consider Papyrus to Comic Sans an upgrade. :V

Not me!
I think what would be perfect for me, is to have Hana do the font like she just did (which looks kickass), and put that in my banner I made :x
Then it would be awesome.....speaking of....I just uploaded a version with that in it! Yay!

But I have no better suggestions so have fun.

Not enterprise enough.

NOW YOU'RE USING IMPACT

IMPACT YOUR FACE!

I'll see what I can say about the banner later. Nothing's particularly coming to me now, though I am very =D about Beaky matching the font.

Huzzah! Though all I did was literally swipe it from your banner...I don't even know what font you used...how sad?

I think I'm going to continue making more banners, if for nothing else, just to have fun.
I found a bunch of HQ pokemon pics to make funny scenes like Snorlax's landing on a Hippodown.

Off the top of my head, it was called Broken Stick.
