Hey Rodrigo, here with a quick pre-promo cleanout! You have a pretty well curated gallery already - the number of graphics you have is great.

 

I'd take out the first  and last banners (poor image quality, and the different first M in moments, for the first, and weak composition and text on the last). The second sig isn't as good as the others - I love the coloring except on the smaller model, and the text is hard to read and placement is awkward. Chapter images and icons are I think your weakest sections - I think you're capable of doing better than the graphics you have in there, honestly. Same with the blends- having only one is fine, but I think you could make better use of the space.
 
In general, watch out for overfiltering/poor image quality, cohesive composition, and make sure the text effects aren't actually making the text harder to read. Hope this helps, and feel free to pm if you have any questions!

Hey, Cat here with a quick pre-promo cleanout!
 
I would keep banners #1-4 and cleanout the rest. I like +this banner as well, but the blending and text have some issues. (Also try to clean up the blending on #2 and #4. it might be because of your filtering, or just bits of background left around their heads). For signatures, #1 and #4 are much stronger than #2 and #3. Icons, headers, and blends are fine. I'd remove both of the other larger pieces, or use thumbnails instead (likewise the one at the top of your gallery) - the vertical blend is overfiltered, and the other two are cool but not helping your gallery much.
 
In general, watch for blending (especially halos), overcoloring, overfiltering, and make sure the text is always legible. Your composition is generally very strong. Hope this helps, and feel free to pm if you have any questions!

Hey Sammi, Cat here with a quick pre-promo cleanout!
 
I would take out

Signatures are definitely your strongest graphics, then banners. In general, work on your image quality and blending, and always make sure your text is easy to read. We can definitely tell how hard you've been working on improving lately, just keep working at it ;) Hope this helps, and feel free to pm if you have any questions!

Hey Taylor, here with a quick pre-promo cleanout! Honestly, there's not really enough in here to do a real cleanout - you need to bulk up a few sections rather than clear out the less great graphics. We'd ideally like to see 3-6 banners/sigs/CIs and 1-2 icon sets and blends, especially making the jump from senior to grad (try to hit at least 4 of those 5 categories with 2+ graphics, and 1-2 with 4+). (Obviously this is just a guideline and not a firm rule, but I'd like to see a dozen or more solid graphics.)

That said, I would take out the icons and the signature, they're pretty basic compared to everything else, and try to replace them with stronger graphics (not necessarily an icon set and signature). Hope this helps, and feel free to pm if you have any questions!

Apologies, there's nothing showing in the system that there have been any moderator actions, but there may have been some kind of glitch. Opening now.
