Do you think I could just leave this part blank and it'd be okay? We're just going to replace the whole thing with a header image anyway, right?

Need Constructive criticism

So this is my very first time making graphics and I need some "Constructive criticism"
Do you guys think it's bad or good?
What do I need to improve on

First graphic: It's pretty bad

I find it okay
It's supposed to be a Winter 2nd Place Trophy ;p





P.S It's also the same one in my sig

Re: Need Constructive criticism

Re: Need Constructive criticism

Needs some AA and a bit of transparency at the edges, but it looks cool.

Maybe also a slightly darker border around the upper part.

Re: Need Constructive criticism

Definately better, although to me it still looks a bit too 2D (no idea how to fix that though tongue)

Re: Need Constructive criticism

Noooo, just no.

Are you kidding me:

zoomed image

What is this? I know it's your first graphic tongue But I don't see you've experience with graphics. Its shape is really weird because there's no anti-aliasing. There's also no shading, it's just a flat graphic. Also, silver isn't cyan, it's light gray. Try looking at the contest trophies in EE and  The darker pixels are barely visible zoomed out so it's like the whole graphic is 1 color., and it doesn't even look like a snowflake trophy.

Take a look at TOOP's trophies:
008_prizes.png
Copy it and paste it in your paint program. Zoom in and try to learn from it. Unfortunately, it's not that easy to make graphics. I am also not really good at it but I definitely have some experience. The best tip I can give you is PRACTICE. Keep making graphics, and try to improve. Start with some simple things, making trophies is a bit hard. Try making some solid blocks or something. Learn from your previous graphics and always try a bit harder (not too hard).

zoomed image

This one is a bit better, it's still very flat because there's no shading. Anti-aliasing is good enough and the glow looks nice, it fits well. It can still get some work. The color is still the same in the entire graphic (except the glow), and this also doesn't look like a snowflake trophy too.

Re: Need Constructive criticism

Hey, from what you made I got the idea to make this:

You can edit it if it's not good enough, like I did.
Listened to Latif's advice.

EDIT:
Working on fixing bowtie. It isn't too visible.
Fix:

Re: Need Constructive criticism

I told you guys the graphic is horrible, and yes. I've never used any of those paint tools or whatever in my life.

Re: Need Constructive criticism

Don't be so hard on yourself.
Believe and try, as Latif said.
Who cares if you made some mistakes here and there? Everybody does. Even the most succesful artist.
Just keep trying and don't take peoples'/our judgement too hard. We're just suggesting. It doesn't mean it isn't good.
