    Need help / inspiration

    So i finally decided i wanted to start learning photoshop etc, making sigs in the start / banners.

    I didn't like the banner our guild had in WoW, so i decided that would be a good place to start, so i want to make a new "banner" for our guild. So far i have only added our guild name / realm, and played around with the layer settings, to make it look better:

    http://img14.imageshack.us/img14/2207/cataclysm3bg.png

    The background is just generally how our forum looks, so i just got the wallpaper, and added the text. I want something more added to it ofcourse, because it still looks a bit boring, but i really dont know what it should be :P

    Anyone who got some great ideas for it?

    Will be very appreciated, if your idea rocks, i might even +rep you ;]


    Also, if you don't like the text as it is now, i don't mind you also flaming that to hell, and giving other ideas about that, thanks

    And the game was over and the player woke up from the dream.
    And the player began a new dream.
    And the player dreamed again, dreamed better.
    And the player was the universe.
    And the player was love.

    You are the player.
    Wake up.

    it looks good, however the text doesn't fit in with the picture, also try to crop the background image and remove that rock thing in the middle do it's just the top bit.

    EDIT: you could use something like this:
    [spoiler][/spoiler]

    Thanks to m0rbidang3l for hist tutorial.

    Removing the rock is probably not very easy, as the picture is most likely taken from google.

    As stated, the picture could be taken from google, and you just added text to it.

    But to help you... Get a better picture or make your own. Shouldn't be too hard to find some different cataclysm images, that you can combine with eachother.

    The pic itself is simply just the background for the website, the only thing i've made is the text for now, i don't think they would change the background, i just put it in there, so you could compare it to how it would look on that background since it's not going to get changed.

    Your text though looks much better than mine, i'll try to see if i can get my own looking more like yours, it's much better ;]

    Thanks for the help, would love more if you got more great ideas ^^

    But i might try and find a better picture, just to make it all look better, i really didn't like it myself, but since it's their website, i just wanted to help with their "banner" because its plain crap imo :P


    Edit: The design on the website is pretty much build around the background, so changing that won't happen, i just need to add some text on the top, or whatever could look cool

    What Dobbs posted would look fine on it, as long as he makes the orangish color a lot more saturated so that it pops out more.
    I WAS DRILL ROLLED BY GZ. AND I LOVED IT.
