Thread: Who's got the best banners?

This is a contest to find good GFXers.

I'm doing a show in one of my feds, kinda like The Dirt Sheet. I don't have the name so for the first time make a banner with a name you think has to do with Impacter it doesn't have to but try to for the text. And any pics you want try to get a guy with a mic. Make it a wrestling thing.

Due 4/23/08

The best way to find the answer to your question young Grasshopper : Search the profiles in VOW, and see who's name (signature) is on the most banners used ;), or who's got the most "props for a banner".

As somebody who doesn't have the tools, the artistic flair or the patience to make banners, all I can say, in a totally impartial way, is ....

Universal Beauty II's banners are the best :D

That's true Man from somewhere...unleeesss...you want a banner with artistic style, quality, and/or a banner that doesn't look like an efed quick minute work.

All of my banners express the true reason for having one : "individuality".

People want something that expresses the personality of their character, and it would be cool to use different font styles every now and then lol. An artist who overuses and abuses the same font when creating banners, in effect makes them all look the same. :)

as we look into the scene. we see a guy in a old beater parked on the street. we can hear some high quality tunes emitting from what must be a very nice sound system.
we see a friend of the person walk up to the window of the car and start a conversation with the cars occupant.

friend: that is one sweet sound system you have there,

cars occupant: Thanks Man

friend: hey, let's go cruise for some girls in your car with that awsome sound system

cars occupant: we cant. the car doesn't run it's a lemon. but we can sit here and listen to the tunes until the battery goes dead.

Ok I will answer this question. Who makes the best banners in VOW? Without a question, DARKLORD does.
I am glad that so many have confidence in there skills, but they all pale to me, sorry but it is true.

Dont underestimate! Mad Dawg's pics. I dont make them often anymore but, there are none like mine. everybodys banner looks the same in my opinion. has a desent pic with a nice backgound then put some words on it. or you just clone a pick and put it on a different background. look at my pic Mad Dawg was a pic i got from raw dawg goggle raw dawg. i had to take away parts of the pic and add parts. notice the chain around the neck was RD now MD. all done with paint. Now dont let me get my other pograms back and really show somthing.

Text is plain... Green text looks horrible, scan boxes are to strong. Banner looks plain but thanks for sharing!

Actually there is no best, each person has there own style, oh and those are not scan lines lol it was done with a brush alot you know, the text is not plain either it is judas priest text and I like bold colors, I make banners that i like and prefer mine to anyone elses. People have differant taste i guess if you dont like my banners then dont ask me to make you one. lol

Rofl, and this critique comes from who with what qualifications or master banner experience?

Bottom line : Darklord and Bruiser Brody have more banner requests and banners used on profiles in the game than anyone. Of course, I'm talking about experienced and active players...not those fly by night accounts that will accept anything given to them :).

2008-04-23 23:29:38
Sigh, Ray. Seeing as I Didn't mention scanlines!

1. Brushes? You Can Also Brush and make Scan lines

2. It's still to strong. Maybe use Opacity? Beside Flow?(Scan Boxes)

3. Text is plain

4. I Can See No Effort Was put in that banner! ;)

BUT These are my opinion seeing as I type it. kkz? :D

2008-04-23 23:30:11
lawl, nah. My banners are accepted by pretty much everyone I know within the VOW community.

What that saying applies to is..People like to switch to different banner makers like Warren Graphics or Prince GFX or..I dunno some other random guy who knows how to make em. mmkay? :)

it is strong because it is rain, that is the effect I was going for:) I agree BB and myself have made the most banners I have been making them for players for about 5 years i cant count how many I have made, I am ok with you not agreeing that i am the best, actually i dont need to be the best, I am still better than most of you lol
I think BB banners are true art which is unduplicatable by most of VOW.

So how does that little saying go again.."You may talk the talk, but can you walk the walk"? :)

Rain Effect is easy to make... And Yes, You did it wrong. Thats not "How" You make rain... I'm always right. I've been into graphics since 2007.

5 years? Good Job. Still looks like a Amateur made it.

Mr. Mars... spewing about walking the walk. Nothing but criticism so far and nothing to show. Why not put your banners where your mouth is?

My friend. It seems you're a bit late here, we've carried this out into an official battle between Ray and One of the people of our little group.

But if you really wish to see a banner of mine, then check out the title entitled "GFX Battle Arena" by HHH008.

I say the smaller version looks better, the big version has a few problems. And maybe loose the dogtag, it looks out of place and just thrown on there for fun. Almost like "oh, there's nothing "busy" in that corner, so we'll add a random image."

2008-04-26 10:39:02
yeah i rushed this one. i agree though. i need to take my time sometimes. when it comes to animation it hard to fix somthing so simple.. i would have to erase the pic out of each frame. which this one had i believe 79 frames. to much work unless i did it right the first time. :(
