I am working on art at the moment but I thought I would upload this first. :)

I have been a fan of :iconoreana:'s character Freya-Ca ever since I first discovered oreana and her awesome art :).

I had been wanting to make a fan banner like this for a while now, I asked permission to use the artwork so the character and artwork is (c) :iconoreana:

the button template can be found here. www.deviantart.com/art/Long-Bu…

I hope it looks alright Ore, <3.

well thank you very much 8D, it was my first time doing one as I have only previously ever tried making stamps :).

Aaaand.... added to my list of support banners on my devID. :D
(Seriously, I have practically nothing else on there. All banners and stamps that I like.)

eeeee thanks!, I'm tempted to make a banner for one of my characters at some point, I wasn't sure about it but Oreana suggested I try making one anyway. :)

"I'm tempted to make a banner for one of my characters at some point,"
Go right ahead! I might want to reduce the banner's size on my ID (I've put them all on 50% height and width for now) to fit more without seeming cluttered, but I'd be more than willing to put up fan banners of your OCs.
On the subject of being tempted to do something, or "been meaning to" in my case, I need to make an attempt at one of my OC/species and maybe use that as an ID image.... (You can see the creature bio of the one I'm thinking of, and one person's interpretation, on my other account here fav.me/d65h2wn if you're curious)

Well now I finally did this one, I might have a play about and see what I can make, inspired by Oreanas other banners she has made :).

I'd probably make one for Moreta and Damion, as they both seem to be my main characters.

Oh my golly gosh! that creature looks so beautiful!!, it looks like a canine mixed with an avian <3. Though I suppose being a shapeshifter species means they could take the form of any creature and mix it up :D.

I have my own species made up too, a race of Lightning Demons but I haven't the guts to upload them yet, the only vague glimpse that is up is with Damion, as he is part Lightning Demon so some of his features are from them.

They look rather draconic, so they could easily be mistaken for dragons, which gives me some added interesting opinions to use when writing about them 8D.

"that creature looks so beautiful!!, it looks like a canine mixed with an avian"
I agree, it is beautiful, and I'm more than satisfied with Jess's interpretation (why else would I have used it as the preview image?)... but it's supposed to be a canine with plant traits, actually. ^^; The image that inspired the creature was a bunch of flowers and such pictured on a bottle of some lotion-or-other, and the colors are meant to resemble the flower petals, to act as camouflage within a jungle or forested environment.
But hey, like you said, a shapeshifter species could easily have traits from other animal types, and a natural camouflage (even one helped along by a natural perception filter) could easily resemble other creatures. And since the "dragons" I prefer using tend to be more avian than reptile, why not my other species? :D
But... like I said, I need to get working on trying to draw the creature myself. Maybe I'll be able to produce an image that looks a tiny bit closer to what I had in mind.

"I have my own species made up too, a race of Lightning Demons but I haven't the guts to upload them yet, the only vague glimpse that is up is with Damion, as he is part Lightning Demon so some of his features are from them.

I look forward to seeing more. :plotting:

Ooooh cool, so that's what inspired you awesome :D.

yup, practise and practise some more and you will achieve the look you want to get :D.

hahah, I'd probably have to write up and have pictures of them separately because Damion actually doesn't know of his Demonic heritage, nor does he know of their history XD.

And when he does find out, I'm really not sure how he would react, though it would make sense to him why he was so tall and the shape of his snout and such XD.

oh no she didn't  Kitty Dance Oh my~! You do banners better than me~! :wow: OMG~! I love the text you used and that background just fits wonderfully~!! I love both the pieces you chose! :faint: It's just so lovely, I can hardly contain myself~! :iconletmehugyouplz: Thank you so much for a lovely support banner!! It makes me want to do more Chaotically--BAAH~!! <3333 :iconninjaglompplz:

eeeee, I'm glad you like it :D. I thought I'd put green as the background colour to match her lovely eyes X3.

I went with blue for the text because the snake in that picture was blue but also because her magic markings glow blue too :D

For the text I duplicated it and fiddled with the settings :).

duoble eeeeeee!, that is always good to hear :D.  and I gotta laugh at that ninja glomp emoticon, I haven't seen that one before XDD.

Nyawwwr, thank you~! It certainly fits her, that's for sure. >33

Hehe, that does make sense to me! I think you chose the perfect coloration~! :squee:

Oh really? I still need to figure out Adobe's text function. :nirvana: For some reason I can never make my text as creative as I used to in Adobe, but the last I played religiously in 7.0 was back in high school my senior year. xD;; I just saw the gradient feature, and I know some artist use it as a means to shade sometimes.

Haha, it is one that lurks around on the sidebar sometime. >3
queenmoreta's avatar
I know what you mean, I used to be able to make such funky looking text in one of my previous programs but I find I can't quite do the same in Photoshop D:.

holy shit! at one point I used to use gradient for my full colouring >.o. I'm glad learned to go beyond that sort of colouring XD.

what is PSP8 like for text features?
oreana's avatar
Oh, I'll have to show you sometime. xD I mean, like I said in another journal, it's not like I cannot swap my layers and things to Adobe, because I can save it as an Adobe file, but what sucks is I cannot save it back as a PSP8 file, so if I ever wanted to go back, I can't! haha I am just seeing what textures are worth it for what program and so on. :D
queenmoreta's avatar
ahh that is a bummer!, handy you can save it as a photoshop file but not the other way around D:.

yeah just play around and see what you can use to your advantage ;)
