Pick my new blog banner!

Well, I spent all afternoon discovering and working on Photoshop, trying to figure out ideas for new banners for the blog. If you can see, yesterday I uploaded the first one I created, but today I made a couple of changes to that one and even finished 3 others. I don't know what you think, but I believe the result is pretty good, considering that 2 weeks ago I didn't know what a layer was in Photoshop. Anyway, I figured since I can't choose what banner to use, it would be nice to let you, readers pick one. Of course I will make some blog color changes to match the new banner better, but let's only think about the banner now.

Oh and I'm sticking to green and pink mostly because they are the S60 3rd edition's logo colors, not because I love Bubble Gum wrap-up themes :p

Banner 1 - Green
The one used right now with some 3d effects

Banner 2 - Pink
Well, this one looks very pinky (Darla will sue me!)
I took the star-like shape on the top-right of the S60 3rd logo, put some together and formed this smiley face.
Add a drop shadow effect with outer glow, some modifications and I got this face shape outside. Neat!

Banner 3 - Dark Blue
Background is made out of the same S60 3rd logo star. I seriously like this one.
The font looks very Harry-Potterish, esp in the lower line, or am I mistaken?

Banner 4 - Dark Blue vertical
DanceStep font with some lighting renderings. I got the 3D effect I was looking for after 1h of work.

Banner 4 v2 - Dark Blue vertical
Same one but with a different shadow effect. I felt the first one was fading, so I made this one.

Well it's now time to make your choice, after all you are the ones who visit this blog! I will see the results on monday december the 3rd.

  1. Nice blog. I am very worry about the future of lebanon. A post in my blog expalin it:

  2. I voted for number 3. Great colors, very legible and I love the S60 star. :)

  3. I like 1 and 3, kinda hard to amke a decsion though. Either one of those would be great IMO.

  4. I pick number 1. I just feel green is the color, maybe because Dotsisx used to be green on Vox.
