Fan Fiction Banner Factory

Hi,I was just wondering if anyone might be interested in making me a Story Banner for my current fanfic "Resolution" starring our beautiful Balian.

I really have nothing in mind, no particular picture, other than he has to look as though he has the weight of the world on his shoulders (hmmm, when doesn't he?) - it is set post war, so no armour, plain clothes only and the scar must be visible - and he has to be beyond beautiful of course, but that's not hard! He lives in a cabin he built in the woods - so possible greens or browns for colouring - text oldy worldy...I'm no graphic artist so will leave it up to the muse who takes up this request.

Is there anyone interested in doing this for me? I'd love a banner to head up the story, and it suddenly occurred to me to ask for it here.

I'd be very appreciative and totally stoked.

Will wait to hear (fingers crossed).

cheers
Luna

done!

Wow, that was quick, thanks Mayfrayn - I love your work.

Um, just the usual size I think (I know nothing about this - whatever the standard size is for all the Challenges etc.)

Text - Just "Resolution" - The Final Chapter of a Man craving Peace or something like that - the story is ongoing in the Mature section at present.

I really appreciate this Mayfrayn. Thanks so much.

cheers

Not one to leave an offer going begging..I can't put a link because the story is a bit too naughty but I would like a banner for a story that is posted in the Mature section called Colorado

banner request: Colorado by Nuit and Blue Magic (this doesn't have to be on banner necessarily)
Short description of the story, including main characters: Joe Byrne and a OFC called Sarah. Has a bunch of other cowboys too. AU FF . Late 1880's. Joe escapes the bullet and ends up in America. In Colorado..sort of keeping moving, we don't know quite why but he is edgy and unsettled. Gets work herding cattle and finds some soft skin and some blackberry crumble with Sarah.
photo shoot suggestion:
specific picture(s): Ones on horses/landscapes
color suggestion: earthy
text suggestion: Title of FF
specific artist request (if any): No but I do like a kind of stark style- Joe is very beautiful and that speaks for itself.
banner size:



done!

Of course you can PM me with some pictures you like, even if I have a little idea...I don't need to read the fiction, I only want to know if you want only Joe in the banner or you desire even a woman....(I should prefer only Joe....)

OK, I'm showing my lack of FF experience, but could someone tell me what the heck "OFC" and "AU" are?

Well, yeah, that would fit too....!

But I think it's definitely Adut - some use NC17, some use X - it all fits my stuff anyway...

Mirk, as far as I know, OFC means original female character and AU is indeed alternate universe - you know, like Luna's heroine Mika on her adventures with Legolas in En Coe...

Beautiful banner, mayfrayn!

haha yeah Is Alternate Universe- ie things that can't have happened really. So you could say that about most fiction I guess, but say Telcontars story where Legolas, Balian and Will etc are travelling togther is AU. Things outside their original story arc I guess.
Joe Byrne in some other parallel universe did not get shot but came to live in my bedroom...that sort of thing...

Ha, well there you go, haven't I learned something today ? - no idea about the alternate universe thing (other than the realms inside my own head) and "female" not "fictional" - there you go.

thanks for clearing that up - now things might be a little clearer!!!

cheers
