A Passing Fancy-- Cassie's Banners
I dabble in photoshop, though you probably would say I'm a very inconsistant studier of it. I make banners on whims and requests, but not relgiously. I have a bunch saved up on my computer and photobucket dating from a week ago to a year ago. I also have different hand-drawn pieces that I'll post, but I'll warn you theres a lot. I don't know what goes in what order, but here goes nothing...

Graceful as a Swan. I made this for my sister, Masquerading Rose.

Maureen Dawson: I made this for Ran for another site. I think she's seen it, but if not-- suprise!

This is my banner, which I made.

Alexander Sokoll, my male OC.

Fatherhood A banner featuring Nadir Khan and his accidentally adopted daughter, Ludivine, from my RPG site.

Harpy This banner I made to poke fun at Vivien's encounter with Raven Corbett at the Masquerade.

Mask Joke This is quoted from the masquerade-- a joke Vivien and Maureen made about the Opera Ghost while in his box.

La Sorelli for my site as well.

That concludes the photoshop pics, for now. I've got some of my own sketches to post later.

OMG! Raven and Vivien on a banner--a funny one at that--is sooooo great! I love it! That's really so cute though I'm not sure that he would call her that. Naturally, he'd have to sue the "rag" that printed it. *giggle* I'm not saying that Raven might not THINK the word, but he wouldn't say it. I'm honored!

It's fun doing in-joke banners, isn't it?

I especially like La Sorelli. The background color is very nice and very soothing and seems to suit the picture. It has a floaty, airy effect.

I also like the first promotional banner. It's very intriguing and plays on our memories of that particular very steamy song/number.

Your banners make me want to experiment even more with clipped images. I've done a few, but I'd like to try more because it makes for an interesting effect.

I'm enjoying studying all of your work. I love visiting others' art threads to see all the varying approaches there are.

Mrs Nadir Khan 08-08-2007 03:11 AM

If I'm not mistaken, Cyn, Raven did think that in your narrative... :) I'm glad you like it. Thank you so much for your commentary; I have always admired your banners. Chris shows them to me frequently.

Edit: New Banner!!

Nadir and Erik: For Good

I used the 1991 play/film for this picture, if it's unfamiliar to anyone.

Ooh! He did?! That should tell you that my characters do their own thing. I'm just around to type it. I'm often amazed by what Easy and Raven say and do, and it tends to surprise me when I reread it.

I'm still so flattered that you captured that particular meeting. I'll have to reread it to see what else Raven had to say and think.

Does that ever happen to you--that "Where did THAT come from?!" sensation?

By the way, I don't know the play, but the Erik/Nadir banner is interesting and likely will make people curious about that production.

Mrs Nadir Khan 08-17-2007 01:13 AM

I think those sort of posts happen to all of us, Cyn. ;)

I have some cartoons! They came out a bit shadowy when I scanned them, lemme know if they are so bad that I should probably rescan them.


Edit: New Banners!

Wolf and Women
Want To: Wolf/Vivien

More Banners

My thread has been fairly quiet for a few weeks and since I'm not a "popular" bannermaker, I'm posting twice instead of continually editing, so that those who are waiting for an update (if there are people) will see that there is one.

Raoul and Christine

I don't think popularity matters much, you seem to have good artwork, I like it.

The cartoons are cute (although you are right scanning them in made them sort of shadowy but I don't think you should re-scan them) I like your new batch of graphics I think that they are great, I especially like the banner you have now and the mini banner for the Meg phansite. I can't wait for you to make more!
