Ahhhhhhhhhhh! I gots the first post! tongue1.gif

So is this your first gallery... cuz you are off to a great start!

Three things I can see right off the bat.
1---> Watch your chins, losing a chin at the bottom of your canvas can really hurt the quality of the graphic.
2---> you are using a lot of hard cuts for your blends, which is fine (I use hard cuts all the time) just try experimenting with the opacity setting on your eraser tool... it will do crazy cool things for your blending!
3---> You are going to want to switch up your fonts, when using scripty fonts only do one or two words scripty do the others in a plainer font.

You have a great start! Keep up the hard work and you make some great graphics!

Here are some great sites i use like every single day:
weheartit.com---> for stock images and general inspiration
dafont.com---> for tons of great fonts
bellazon---> for grear model pics ou just can't find anywhere else.

If you ever have a question or need help just let me know biggrin.gif

P.s. what program do you use?

Thanks for the help. I'll make sure to try all your suggestions. tongue1.gif

P.S. I use gimp, and I just can't figure out how to open any of the dafont.com font files, so that limits my amount of fonts.

Hey! Welcome to TDA!

You've got some brilliant pieces here. Nice start. I particularly love this and this. Those two in particular show considerably ability when it comes to blending and composition.

I second what Liza said though. I think if you varied your fonts more, and in particular the colour of your fonts, everything within the graphic would look more complete. One good tip is to pick a colour from within the graphic and do your fonts in that particular shade. .Brookeabee has a very nice tutorial available here on the do's and dont's for text.

With regard to dafont - you need to import downloaded fonts in to windows. There's information available on the web that will detail how to do this for you. It's fairly straightforward.

Look forward to seeing you around!
Lisa

Hello!

I was just gallery browsing and stumbled across yours.

I really, really like your NOH8 icons and your forum set challenge entry!

And your chapter images are awesome too!

Keep making stuff, I'd love to see more. smile.gif

Hello! smile.gif
Gosh. Lovely gallery!

My favourite is that red sig! It's simply gorgeous!
And I love the Alice Longbottom chapter image!
& all your 'other's are pretty amazing! That Harry/Hermione manipulation - really clever, so smooth, great blending! biggrin.gif

Hey! Wow, your stuff is great! I love your signatures, your first and last chapter image, and especially your blend--it's really creative smile.gif Your composition is really great, and your images are already super versatile. Your icons are also FANTASTIC. The one suggestion I'd have is to watch with your blending, as some of your images still have some fuzziness around the edges of people and things that you've blended. But your stuff is really great otherwise. See you round the forums!

Oh my gosh, I am so in love with your banners! +this set is one of the most gorgeous things I've ever seen in my life. Seriously. I wish I could make banners that gorgeous. You have such a great gallery going. I would just look out for over use of filter. There's too much on +this that it lessens the quality and prettiness of the graphic. But I'm still really jealous of you and I can't wait to see more.

Back again after 3 months or so!

I absolutely HAD to drop by after seeing your entry into the 'username above you' challenge.
The ginny weasley banner is gorgeous! wub.gif

OMG OMG OMG jaw-dropping.gif ALL your graphics are GORGEOUS!! jaw-dropping.gif wub.gif
HOLY JUST WHAT? THAT BLEND!! jaw-dropping.gif IS SO LASJDF;ALF ARGH! TOO GORGEOUS!!! wub.gif
possibly needs some text? ermm.gif but i'm not sure.. it looks like text could finish it off on the one hand, but on the other, it could ruin it. (sorry that didn't really help, but i do adore that blend!)

Loving the sigs + icons too!
But the other thing I want to rave about are your banners!! biggrin.gif
They're so gorgeous! The other one I love (apart from the ginny one) is the Elijah Wood one!
WAHH AHH ARGH! LOOK AT THE LAST BANNER! Pure gorgeousness!! Love the colouring and composition!! wub.gif
One thing I would watch out for in that banner is your blending - i can sorta see halos around the girls, so be careful wink.gif


Honestly, your graphics are gorgeous!! wub.gif
I think you're getting close to junior now, with some small changes - the blending, perhaps overuse of topaz? some sort of filter in your chapter image? and your colouring is just a TAD iffy on some. - your current sig (love the quinn<3 composition btw), and perhaps some of the banners?

You're definitely near though, & you definitely have the potential to be super awesome!! Keep working on it, you're gonna get there soon! <3 wub.gif
