You welcome. ;D And I add text using Paint, too. XP I just don't get how you do it on Gimp.
Now I rate it 10/10.

They're too bright, tone it down a bit. But I really like this.. honestly. You have to fix the saturation though. So 8.6/10. This is amazing for a first.

Okay, so I've been taking advice from people. I tried making sure my banners weren't overly bright and there was text.

I find it really good! It reminds me a bit of Little Big Planet. Smile (Since it's a game about letting your imagination roam free and everything)

Omg those new banners are awesome.
Try making the texture a little less strong and try making the colors less bringt.

9/10 I love your banners, but I have to give it a 9 because I agree with what DarkManor said, the textures are a bit too strong.

Thank you! How do I make them softer/more subtle?

Its easier when you get a picture of a texture, put it on another layer and change its opacity to a lower number. I usually change the opacity of the layer to 30.0 c:

I'm not so pro at using Gimp, so I don't know if you'll like the result xD.

It's good, but if you see any pictures that are blurry, oversharpened, etc. in your graphics, you should refrain from using them. Also, textures in the face can make the image quality to go down so I suggest erasing on where the face is or just have the textures under the model you'll be using. There doesn't always have to be text, you should have some textless signatures or icons here and there so the graphic isn't too crowded, I know from experience. You should also focus on having a focal point on the graphic so it's not no focal point everywhere.

Hope that helps!
