Beautiful Balian Banner

Just wanted to share what Mayfrayn has come up with for me for the first Balian short I wrote, "Contentment" - there are a few lovely ladies creatively working behind the scenes at the moment, having all enthusiastically and heartwarmingly offered to join forces with the writers to make the Fan Fic section even better with their creations. We'll share them here as they develop, but this is the latest in the Balian batch - one more to come in this series...this is SO much fun!

And thanks Mayfrayn, big hugs for such beautiful creations.



"Redemption" banner to come...stay tuned.








It's up already (on three sites!) - thank you so much.

cheers
Luna

*recovers*Those are great, Kat! Did you use 'lighten' to get that effect on the first one? The 'half face' on the left Paris picture?

Thank you

No, the colour is the same as the screencap. I used magic erase first, with 100% fade on the edges. Then I went in and cleaned up the excess and white stuff left by the erase crop, with the regular eraser.
(I did use the "lighten/darken" on the ladie's body and necklace to try to make them look like they belonged together)

wow those are exceptional Kat! Difficult to pick one but I think the Huntress is the one I like the best, if I had to chose! All of them are fabulous!

Luna won't have to choose. She had decided not to split up the job so that they would match. Mayfrayn and Lola are working on a separate series each so that those series would match. (It's a Virgo thing.)

Nuit, have you read this series? They are really good.

Aren't they just super dooper!!! I am BESIDE myself with delight and I would crack a few Kat ribs if I could get a hold of her. Captured the whole series perfectly - the first with that Hunter's stance and gleam in his eye,the second with that alluring Huntress and his distress in his face at what is to come on the morn, and the third with the three of them and the burning of Troy - I can't say how much I adore them. Putting them up asap and THANK YOU KAT yet again.

Mayfrayn has done the final "Redemption" banner, it's glorious but we have a problem with the font - one of the letters is playing up and I'm waiting to see if/how May can fix that - I'm champing at the bit because they look so great and I want her to show you how stunning the final one is.

I can't praise these lovely ladies enough - for me, these banners just put that final, loving touch on each story, making it complete. Sigh. Big hugs and big thanks.

Am having trouble with the red "x" of doom in my pm box, Lola sent me a couple of banners and I can't see them and it's KILLING me. Patience Luna, Patience.

And Nuit, if you've seen my jewellery and understand the matching "virgo" thing, then girl, you better not see my jewellery DRAWER!! Scary.

cheers
Luna

EDIT: Right, they're up and loaded and looking FANTASTIC!!!

I agree, gives the stories a real whole feel. I am considering options as we speak, have Fairy in mind for one, I love that iconographic style of hers, suits Jack.

And here's Mayfrayn's final one for me "Redemption" - got the font fixed (changed it) so I will be putting up shortly - actually, would be putting up NOW if that damn Mature Section didn't keep locking me out - twice I've had to delete my Internet cookies and things to get back in - pain in the butt - and now I'm locked out again...sigh. One more try and then I'll leave it until tomorrow.

Anyway, here's the spectacular banner - doesn't match (!!! see Nuit, I CAN do it) the other two, but I don't care, it's stunning and I LOVE the colours - big hugs May - you've outdone yourself.

cheers
Luna

I was SURE I commented on this- must have drifted off in a haze of lust!
Gorgeous colours as you say Luna- and mmmmm-makes a person quite weak to think of him holding himself like that huh? Love the toy knight in the background.
fab.

Just have to show off a couple more incredible banners the wonderful ladies here have made for me:

Both of these are from Erendira who made them for my two Peter Drinkwater stories, Happy Families & Unhappy Families - thanks so much Lola, I just adore them...






And this one is for the Leggy short - Homecoming - by the talented KrazyMoonKat - Thanks so much Kat, you know how much I love it...



Aren't these girls, all of them, just so talented! And so eager to help and please - big hugs to all of you. Now *flicks through stories*, what's next....

cheers
Luna

PS: Avs - when you're ready girl, when you're ready....

Heh, I'm ready now Luna, just spare time isn't I remember our discussion when you where here late Feb, and look forward to getting to it. Just after other stuff is out of the way (BTW, I've been meaning to ask if you're going to the Abbey Tournament this year?)
