i'm here for your critique
I love +this header typish thing, mostly because I lurve monochromes & plus, it looks gorgeous with the smoothness & lighting ^^"
+this literally boggles my mind because it is composed so well and the text flows nicely and omfg. who doesn't like MULAN!?
and this +this looks so soft and coloring is just lasjdflksjdf
now, the three graphics that i'm iffy about are these:
+this because the coloring makes it seemed way too filtered
+this because it seems like the images weren't hardcutted properly and just slapped on :3
+this because my eyes keep wandering around the graphic and not staying in one place.
i'm going to give you a full critique on +this graphic (your header)
first off, i'd like to say that the positioning of the people was brilliant same goes fro the main text. however, the manner in which they are hardcut is iffy. the top of hermione's head is hardcut so much so that the opacity sort of seep through. and things are overlayed on top of the people. the coloring for this is brilliant, however, sometimes there is too much light. light should seem somewhat natural in a banner. you place light in where a shadow comes and then the opposite side has light (does that make sense?). the subtext "blood of innocent" is placed brilliantly and with a good font, but the other text i can't read at all ><! make that one a little bit bigger. finally, i don't know if this is because of gimp, but the graphic seems to be pretty low quality. my friend she has the same problem with gimp. but i honestly do like the header ^^"
overall, you need to watch out for over filtering (too much of one color/too much coloring can distort a graphic) and text placement (this is to say, the subtext). be careful for texture use, as well. make sure they are cohesive together, and sort of blend in with each other. don't have any texture/coloring that stands out from the crowd because that can also throw off a graphic. and finally, be careful with lighting ^^"
anyways, hope to see more from you
