I just made these in like 10 seconds because my 30 day photoshop trial was about to run out and I wanted to make loads of crap for some reason.

You may complain about the blurry backgrounds, but I think they look pretty cool.

1st John Cena banner, most people will probably not like the background of this but I think it looks good and I made this the background on my computer. (PS I know the pic comes out of the border, I did it on purpose)


2nd A quick Jeff Hardy banner I made for my mate from school who happens to be a member on here.


3rd This I don't even know why I made it, but still, tell us what you think.

I don't really like the Jeff Hardy one... It's just not my style. It's too yellow. The cut is hard to read and the White glow behind the cut is one I do not like. I don't like the effects on the cut and how it's too yellow. The Cartoon Kings one is just too basic with some glow effects. The John Cena is probably the best in my opinion. But the Text is kinda stupid looking and the background just seems... bad.

I was expecting crap ratings, I plainly suck at photoshop, I think the Jeff and Cena ones are good, but the other one is too boring.

I sucked too. Now I guess I'm okay. I just practiced for a long time. Then again. I guess learning Photoshop isn't so hard when you've been using Paint Shop Pro since Summer 2002(When I first met Muzz, Who basically inspired me.). Too bad your trial expired. Practice makes everything better.

The first one is so-so and could be better. The second one blends in great and contrats plays out well. The third one, well just doesn't have any effect, kind of boring.

Yes... It is boring, but it does have shading and glow effects on it.

wow never do that to a PSD looks really bad


EDIT: I don't know if theres a rule here about this but ussually on my board and some others we ussually say "spend more time than just 10 seconds on a banner, take your time and try and make it good" then we close the topic.

Yeah I had Paint Shop pretty much happening before I got Photoshop so I found it really easy to learn my way around Photoshop.

As for the banners, sounds stupid I know but I don't like the size they are.

If somebody told you it's hip to be square, they lied. One like that would've been alright, but seeing how they're all cubish, I gotta deduct. Shows no effort.

The banners themselves though....the placements are too uninspiring. Not that they're not good for what they are, they'd deffinately be bettered with more cuts/effects.

Your text'ing should be the first thing you work on for right now. Tweak'em a bit...there's many different things you can do. (You seem to have a feel for bg's, so no need to put too much practice into it atm)

I'll rate them as a whole and give ya a 5/10. Pretty avg stuff.

It´s obvious he did spend more than 10 seconds on these banners. He´s new, he wants them to be rated, so no need to close this.

He actually did say he took 10 seconds. But he's obviously lying for a 'pre'-excuse.

I know he said it, but I also know some more stuff. I know things.

I haven't rated thse, yet. So here it goes:

I like the way the Cena cut looks, but that is because it's sunny and I'm in a good mood and all. The rest is all bad, unfortunately.
