Default Orpheus' Graphic Art

Well I don't exactly have the time to make a shop so I figured I should just make a thread with my graphic art first. :] I really enjoy making banners and such, so here they are. : D Comments are greatly appreciated.

The sprite banner in my signature is also done by me. :]

They are all cool, but the one with Gardevoir stands as the best.

I agree with the above two posters: the Gardevoir banner is the best one so far, but the second banner in the "Older" section comes pretty close, too.
Overall, you're one of the better banner-makers I've seen in a good while. Good job!

Thanks guys! Actually the Gardevoir one is pretty simple, I just fiddled with some things and added sparkly stuff. xD But anyway, here's more stuff.

A couple of Johto avatars. They're all the same really, I just changed the sprite. xD


And here's a banner I did for Firo.


Oh and I have more avatars here: [1] [2]

Nothing in particular, really. It's just there to make it look pretty. :P

I have a comment on banners of this type:



The background looks great, but the Pokemon looks too distant in my opinion. If it was a little larger, I think the banner will look better.

Those are sprite banners, so unfortunately, I won't be able to enlarge the Pokemon. Because you know how sprites always turn out bad when you enlarge them :( I guess I'll just have to make the banner smaller instead. Thank you! :D

Sorry if this post is not considered important enough for me to double post. :S I have a few updates.

So I started making graphics and all in 2008, and I just felt like making a collection of stuff I have done. This thing's from 2008-2009, I think. I actually made MUCH more banners during this time but I couldn't fit them all in.

Beware, this image is like 600x1000px!

I'm actually a pretty slow learner. But I guess it's nice to see my progress. I'll make another one of these giant images with my more recent banners.

Also, this isn't really graphic art but here's a WIP. I'm making a sprite out of one of my old drawings from last year.
Spoiler Alert:    

Don't worry about the body for now, I just haven't sharpened up that bit yet. I'm still working on the face and all. I don't sprite very often, so this is quite fun to do :] Just wanted to let you guys see what I've been doing.

Oh wow. Your previous graphics look amazing! even if you are a slow earner.
And that drawing looks great too! Can't wait to see how the sprite turns out. c:

Thank you! I'm not sure about the sprite though, I kind of got bored of sharpening it, but I will get back to it eventually. xD

Here's a sig I made with a 30 minute time limit. Normally I take much longer, so I'm not really happy with this. :S


Also, my Homestuck fantroll. I was too lazy to make it transparent, sorry.

(As to why his sweater is #000000, and why is design is so simple - that's just how all Homestuck sprites are done)

My oh my, these are fantastic... I love all the gradients and colors and brushes and everything! What do you use for your graphics? I really hope I can learn to make banners and other graphics like that, they are simply amazing!

Thank you! <: I don't use brushes very often, actually. I use more textures I find around deviantART and all.

And I use Photoshop, but I've seen some really awesome signatures made with GIMP too. GIMP's just as good as Photoshop, really. Just that I'm more used to Photoshop.

Ahh I see, I shall look into these "textures" then, thanks! The only fancy thing I know of are the C4D render things, they are soo fun to use but sadly can be overused too as well if not careful. And yes, I have been using Gimp technically for about... 5-ish years (on and off a lot though)? So I am pretty darn used to it, keep up the excellent work though! I'm glad to see excellent graphic makers here on this site! :3

Yes, you used the Karkat and Gamzee pictures from my favorite flash dlkgjlkgjfslksj. Your banner skills are absolutely fantastic, though you've probably heard that enough already, pffft. May I inquire how many textures do you use? (Just curious, haha!)
