Ok, here I'll just post stuff I think I did alright. This stuff will get better once I get GIMP.

for starters:

Land battle avs (my idea).

Constructive cirstisim and compliments welcome. "That's fugly", "Ahhhh, my eyes" and "Gawd you suck." is not constructive.

Interesting idea, but I'm not a big fan of the program.

If you can download GIMP, do it. Great program, it's free, and easy to use.

They're okay, but they can be better.

Well first off, the backgrounds are too plain. By downloading GIMP it would eliminate that problem (yay brushes!)

Another thing is that they are essentially the same Avvy, just different Poke's and text.

You should start making you're own backgrounds, from scratch. It's alot more rewarding.

Otherwise the effects you put on them are good. You stick to a theme, which is a plus.

But on the sandstorm sig, the flygon pics are all messed up, try fixing that.

Also, when using the magic wand, make sure "feathered edges" is selected. It adds a nice look.

As for text on the newest one, It would look better without it.

Well for one, The flygon, have white around them, and 2, they're are scatted dots.

To make a background it's quite, simple. You have brushes for a reason.
Just a tip, when using the paintbrush make sure "use colors from grandiet" are choosen. (Your grandite is the 2 colors in the boxes).

Good Luck!

Actually, that is pretty good. I only see two problems with it:
1.The line
2.The text is a little hard to see

Can't wait to see more!

Yeah, the line was because I tried to feather edge the Crobat with the Magic wand.

I always use feathered edge. You just have to reselect the line and move it out of the screen.

Ok, I'm just gonna use non-feathered for now.

Here's another attempt.

Image

To text, or not to text? That is the question.

(I've hidden an image in the backround, can you find it?)

better. if you were to add text, something in the lower right corner, possibly some kind of red and as for style? ask for someone more knowlageable about these things. :)

May I recommend downloading brushes & fonts? For fonts go to dafont.com and for brushes go to deviantart.

Tutorials on how to do so are in the link I gave you earlier :D

Yup :D , they were originally intended as koffings or skulls. Nothing else has hidden images but I can make more if you want.
