I usually will change the banner every year to something new to freshen it up. :)  Decided to use one of Diane Redmond's drawings from the WSD treasury.

Only problem.....too nice????  :unsure  :unsure

Thoughts?

IMO it's not too nice. It's quite good, Hawkbit. Our forum doesn't have to be utterly otterly depressing when it comes to looks, you know. ;)

I like this one Hawkbit! Glad to see you got your hands on one of the books! C:
The only thing I can say about it is I think the "(c) Diane Redmond" should be a bit smaller, just so it's not so distracting. I still like it though! C:

We changed the banner. It's now not so overloaded. :)

Thank you, Claws ;)

Maybe, I'll make another draft with another shape of Fiver. Or dou you think, he looks fine. He looks a bit like hypnotized (not that this would be unusual for him :D )

Nice idea, but I also got this draft to emphasize the greatness of the creator of this forum:


 :bolt

Edit: Replaced the banner  :D Now Fiver looks more like he's liking his Honeycomb  :fiver

Yeah, that's way better. I'm not a big fan of the "plastic" effect on the letters, but the rest is very good.

Hm, I like those sculptural effects. What do other members think?

Should I rework the text?

Maybe I'm the only one: But I think, that Fiver's looks a bit odd how he lies there. But I don't know, how to make it better. Any opinions about the forum's main actor in this image?
