  • my banners

    Very rough drafts. Just to see if it is worth taking this concept further or if I should throw it out and start fresh.

    A.

    Edit: Just looking at it as I posted I think it needs more contrast between the TG text and the stacked CT Render.
    Here are some examples with more contrast.

    B.

    C.

    I think this yellow one is my favorite.

    EDIT 2:

    Further attempts

    D.

    This one goes out to all you guys in 1024x768 Resolution. It still isn't quite small enough for you guys, but it's better than some of the other game's forum banners.

    E.

    Screenshot



    EDIT 3:

    Someone requested more contrast on the CTs. I used a picture of actual SWAT guys stacked up. Edited out the shirts where it said police and attempted to make it look more like a CS CT render. So I can't give too much contrast or it will look more realistic than it needs to.

    F.

    Different render
    G.

    Never said any of these were my submissions. I just wanted some constructive criticism on my drafts. Seeing as it's the website banner for the whole CS:S community I decided it would be nice to let the community give some input. I'm sure we all want to have a spiffy new and custom banner so I think it should be something we like collectively... more or less at least. Maybe some constructive criticism would be nice instead of trying to make me feel bad?

    But if you want to get real technical then neither of us have acceptable posts...

      3) I believe it's LOLZ!!!!111one XD

      However, great job on the gun render.

      PS I think someone either sent you the wrong background for it or your ms paint screwed it up when you saved it as a 12color bitmap in ms dos. Or is that what the TG forum looks like for you? lol

      Regulation size and regulation dogtags. lawl Oh and I edited in MS Paint instead of photoshop and saving it as .GIF gave it that weird textrue lol.


      I can't wait to see more! I told modis I really wanted him to post one, but he said he probably wouldn't. His sprays are always epic.

            Hey Neski (F) is pretty sweet if you make the colour of the writing anything other than yellow you'll get my vote at this stage. What due think to some urban camo?

              Well the thread is for the submissions, and yes my other post was not 'technically' correct, but I was just informing you of this... not trying to 'make you feel bad' or anything. The one I would choose would be E or F.

                I like the white colour at B and the design of F ... so F with white colour would be my vote :)

                  I think since this is our area of TG that the Counter Strike Source Needs to take center stage....But on the same page still pay respect to TG!

                  Just a thought!

                    Actually putting it in the center as inspired by Quest Shady's request. This one is the requsted size. 430x93 Not a lot of room to work with. I think the advert banners are bigger than 430 TBH.

                      I think you should just put in a randomizing javascript that loads a different banner on each refresh and use all of the submissions.

                        That would be kind of cool. Or it could change every day like "The Google". Holiday banners?

                            I think so too. Text looks like gold bricks lol.

                            The urban ones came out pretty well too though. I was a little surprised.
