    Default my first shot at banners

    Ok, so this is my first banner, it took an hour to remove the anti-ailising from charizard:

    Constructive critism could help, I think it needs some cleaning up.
    Also, how do you remove the anti-ailising so quickly?

    First and foremost, I need to know: what program do you use?

    Ah-ah! While paint is great for spriting, it will be very hard to make high quality banners; You pulled a fine job with Paint, but it gives you almost no space to improve. May I recommend GIMP? It can be as good as Photoshop and it's free :) If you need tutorials I may get you some, once my internet decides to cooperate - for some reason I can only access Bulba and GPX+ o.O Weird...

    Ok, I'll try GIMP then!

    I was wondering how everyone made thier banners, but I know now :)


    EDIT: UGH! my dad is the admin for the computer, so I have to be on his account for setup...
    I could ask him, but too bad the word "no" exists...

    Yes, use Gimp/PS.
    I only use MSPaint for sprites.

    Aww. Well, there is portable gimp...I think it doesn't need to be installed! Worth a try ;)
