Group Banner Challenge
 Group admin 
Okay, okay. We need a better banner. The one we have right now it just temporary. So, anybody, make a banner. We will pick the best one out at the end of the month.
10 points goes to the winner. (Please include the name, The Lands of Mythron, in the picture. And at the bottom of the picture in small font, say click to join. Good luck. And If I don't like any of your Banners, I'll just keep using the one we have now.
- EDIT - This challenge is still going on. As soon as someone makes a good banner, it will be ended.

I finished my banner, and not to brag, but its epic. Do you want me to email it or post it in the group? Are we allowed to post non Lego built stuff on here?

I don't think were allowed to post non-lego stuff.. You could upload it to flickr, or some website (I just load pictures to Photobucket and just copy the image link, that's what I did with the group map) But if you want to email it to me, email me at freeling16@gmail.com

Here's a banner I just made. http://i1289.photobucket.com/albums/b505/Freeling16/121_5995_zpsc1a98383.jpg What do you think? Yes, I did build the lego background too.

If it relates to one faction then no. I'm not entirely sure if any excerpts should be on the banner either.

I think that Lands of Mythron with a cool background would be best.

I actually think a few images from some of the group's early MOCs would be great, especially if they displayed a few sig-figs. Factional favoritism doesn't worry me much.

It has a black border, but you can only see that if you change the image size on flickr so that there is white behind it.

Oh heh, that's kinda true. Well, the blue in the TFOL Private club as well as the various links, the flags bellow, the sky behind deadpool, as well as your activity bar helps it stand out less. Oh, by the way, I have an insanely fast metabolism as well ;) I eat so much and can't gain the slightest amount of weight xD

Does GIMP have a feather feature? I think a bit of glow could be cool. Then again, maybe I'll whip something up with Photoshop.

I don't know that it has a "feather" and if it does, I don't know how it works. But I could easily add a glow, where would I add it? To the text?

Maybe around the border, in the colors of the factions. It looks like you were showing each of them, and some shiny edges would literally highlight this.

In Photoshop and other Adobe programs, feather softens the edges of an object by fading them to transparent. It's really good for adding glows.

Alright. Some nice banners. But I'm still not satisfied. Caleb, your banner was great, but the words were too big. It made it hard to see them and the background. Plus it wasn't quite what I wanted the banner to be like... I'm actually going to start to make some banners myself. I'm tired of not having an official decent one.

There is a black border, you just can't see it because the background is black.
