    Hi everyone. Sorry I couldn't make today's meeting, I haven't been feeling well since yesterday. Anyway, I know Dana mentioned the banner I had done. I uploaded it so that you can see it. It follows the same design layout as the current TF.N banners in order to maintain some consistency.

    Let me know what you guys/gals think.

    The curve image has the wrong color background, needs to be transparent, and the image looks low quality (Not the banner, just the image).

    The colors on the bottom run together, and aren't a fluid transition. Also the whole thing just looks grainey.

    Try saving it with better settings, and no Dither.

    I like the banner though! Love the effect with the 516.

    EDIT: Assuming you made this in Photoshop, you can send me the file and I can try getting it to save better.

    Our forum is going to rock hard!

    Wow, fast responses, lol

    Xie - Yes, I agree, when I uploaded the test page for some reason it wouldn't accept the original .jpeg files, so I have to re-save as .gif. Appearantly there was some quality loss in changing the file format.

    The backgound (sky, water, land) were done in Vue D'Esprit, the Falcon is a 3d studio max render that I did and just added a "glow" to the engine in Photoshop.

    The lighthouse was "extracted" from a real Photo in Photoshop. And the text and everything was layered in PS as well.

    Like I said, the original looks better (for instance the black to grey to white transition is smooth and not "stepped" like it is here).

    Either way, this was just a "Test run" on the concept more so than anything else. Constructive Criticism = Good :)

    Any more feedback?

    Well, you can host the site at (Shameless plug).

    No ads, it owns, etc etc.

    Uh, besides what I touched on, I love it!

    I think it looks great. It'll make a cool looking top header for a web page too.
    I like the "North and South Shores of the Force" slogan too.
