    Update: How ya'll feeling bout these for the Banner/Footer/BG?





    I like how this is going mate, thank you!

    With the banner, I would maybe try and add some sort of effect to the black background, so it doesn't look too plain and maybe trying to blend in the logos with lowering the opacity a little?

    Good work mate.

    Is there any chance you could try and make the YM logo the same colour scheme as red/white/black, as well as make it central?

    Also is there any way you could add a couple more effects to it, such as the lightning (you know like on the current banner?)

    Lightning and other various overlay effects added, plus redid the logo and positioning of it

    my advice would be use the F12 function in Firefox/Chrome and put your banner/background in the code so you can preview how it would look on the forum itself. That really helps the creativity side as well because you get to see how it'd look with the forum itself.

    This is one design I can't remember if it ever was shown or used but it may help you:

    Love it, great work!

    Do you think making the LWHQ logo the same size as the YM logo would look better, or not?

    Also with the background, I really like your design, but is there any chance you could make it more of a light theme with the colours white, red and black. You know so if you come to the forum from the blog, it looks like the same colour scheme?

    I decided to just size up the YM logo instead and tbh I think it works better now As for the BG, the filters I applied to the photos and everything pretty much revolve around it being a darker theme so I just replaced the solid black with a night sky instead, but this is probably the lightest I can get it without making it look too bright and over saturated Is this closer to your overall vision Danny?

    this is dope i think a dark theme is ideal tbh its nicer on the eyes and generally is more pleasant to look at this banner looks super cool @Danny M

    That's even better mate, but when I was talking about the background I meant with the forum background image and not the banner background But I do like the background on the banner even more, great work

    Yeah I know what you mean, but I don't want it to look too much of a different website/design if you go from the blog to the forums

    Can you not change the website to match? Maybe it’s time for a change?
