I'm so happy on how it came out! Maybe a bit to much red but red is such a pretty color D:

Nihilus is amazing and his voice is like so scary it makes me love it.
My inner fangirl is loose. Beware.
UGH. I wish KotOR II didn't mess up. I was about to basically see him.
-Kicks brother-in-laws Xbox- I love you no longer ;-;
Now I need to feed my hunger by looking him up on DeviantArt.

Well how did it come out? I tried my best and I am actually pleased with it. I want to do better though :cD
Constructive criticism would be nice if needed. (:

-Goes to put it in her signature now-

Wow, that came out really nice! What all did you use? I'm just learning to use Photoshop and Illustrator, but they seem so complicated! Confused

Awesome! The red looks really good, he is a Sith after all and red and black our their colors Cool

The only flaw I could find would be the 'N' 'U' and 'S' have slightly too much black splotching, but that's really nit picky and me 'trying' to find a flaw.

Such a sweet banner...I like the background images/textures, it really adds to the feel of the image. The bright intensity and contrasting is really good as well.

I used Gimp. Gimp, to me, is easy. I never have used a Photoshop program so I don't know if it's easier or more complicated. Plus gimp is free. I'm a total vulture to free graphic programs.

Yeah it might be a little too much, I was trying for the effect as if it was diminishing. Because the way I pronounce his name is Nye-Hill-Us which reminds me of annihilation, which means to destroy down to nothing.
I think I made the subtext WAY too small.

Haha he is a Sith so I guess red does suite him.
Thank you all who comments/gave CC.
I might do banner commissions in the near future to try and improve my banner making skills. It'll be harder because people will be requesting things instead of me knowing full on what I want to do. I hope that made sense XD
It's like a surprise but I kinda know what it is but not really.
That too probably didn't make sense. Surprised

Ah, Gimp! I have Gimp. I try to use it as much as possible (which is not very often), but I still struggle with it as much as I do with Photoshop. I suppose I just need to sit down and actually teach myself. *sigh*

As for criticism, I only have the slightest bit to give. Just going to agree with you that your text needs to be bigger. It's a little small. As for it being too splotchy...I don't think so. Just my personal opinion, I like it that way. Smile

GIMP is a good free progam, however I never really liked it myself. I am more of a Adobe Fireworks type of person. While its more for web design, I find myself using it for just about everything.
