    Maple's Banners! :D

    Hey everyone! So I'm pretty sure when I convinced SiningWren to start a thread, I had to make one too...and she kind of mentioned it recently, so I'm starting a thread
    I am AVAILABLE for banner requests with anywhere from one day to a weeks wait. I'm actually kind of pumped to have started this thread, not gonna lie.

    Name: Call me Maple
    Age: 18
    Graphics program of choice: Gimp 2.6 (I think)
    How long you have been designing: I did it for a few months, stopped, and just started up again.
    Specialties: Umm? I personally like my text.
    Favourite FanFic Category: Romance and Humour in the Trio era or Post-Hogwarts about the Trio, preferably when they are young (ie teens, very early 20s)
    OTP: I don’t really have one. I like Hermione pairings.
    Any stories on MNFF? Take a peek!

    I'm glad you like it Megan!

    So I was looking through Russia's banner thread (as I stalk everyone's banner threads often) and I came across a bunch of pictures that Becca had given her to play with. So I stole one (I'm sure I could have found it on google anyway! Hopefully Becca doesn't mind ) and came up with this:



    I'm actually quite proud of this one.
    Any advice, critiques?

    Ooh, Miss Maple, I love that banner. The effect of the text outline around the girl is nifty. My only critique would be to play around with the layer effects of of the 'Who you are is not what you did' text, because it's really hard to read. It doesn't have to be opaque... just a little less invisible. Maybe a combination of soft light and overlay... just play around with it a bit and make it so one doesn't have to squash their face into the monitor to see what it says.

    Overall, though, your banners are becoming more and more artistic, and you have a good eye for fun and inspiring pictures. That's something you can't be taught, I think.

    Thanks so much, Jess! (You have no idea how happy it made me to see a post in my thread ) I took your advice on the font for "who you are is not what you did" and I actually like it so much better!

    I stumbled across a post you made somewhere on the forums, and I just wanted to stop by and tell you how beautiful the banner in your signature is. When/if I ever need a banner, I will return.

    Thanks so much!! My poor thread has been dead for awhile, and I'm really glad you like it I was actually so pumped when I saw that someone had commented on my thread.

    New banners:





    I googled dancing in the rain, and this came up, I was like PERFECT!





    Not a huge fan of ^ that one, but oh well.

    I'm updating my first post and would just like to say that I am AVAILABLE

    Hello! I'd like to request a banner- not for the story I'm agonising over a title for BUT for one I wrote ages ago and yet never got a banner for.

    Title of your Story: The Chance and the Black

    Author Name: welshdevondragon (though I don't really want it on the banner)

    Catch phrase: Something about "Why did Alphard Black leave all his money to Sirius Black?" or "Why did Alphard Black leave all his money to his nephew?"

    Overall look of the banner: Faded. Like something from the fifties. Basically about as fifties as you can make it. And dark. I don't know- have fun.

    Characters: The story is about Chance Dawson and Alphard Black. It would be nice if you can use Blake Ritson for Alphard and Tom Hiddleston
    Story Summary: link- http://fanfiction.mugglenet.com/viewstory.php?sid=84736
    "Alphard,
    I love you. I love you. I love you. And you know I would never waste those words. I would never say those words if I didnít mean them."
    This is the letter Alphard Black is reading at the breakfast table with his sister Walburga watching him very, very closely.
    Why did Alphard Black leave all his money to his errant nephew Sirius?
    Might it have been because the letter he read one morning in the early fifties was from a Muggleborn?
    Banner size: Whatever size you want
    Have You Requested This Banner Before?: Nope
    Anything else? No, don't think so.
    Banner by Minna.
