I attempted two more banners for my "Clocks of the Long Now" series.   I'm not sure if I'll actually do anything with these, but I'm having fun nonetheless (to see the first set, click here).

 


Below the cut are the full size banners for Spike and Andrew Wells.



Banner #3:
Spike

Notes:
For Spike, I went with somewhat chilly palette and some mild techy touches, to reflect some of the changes he's gone through during the past four years.  The fangs looming in the foreground reflect the monster that still haunts him and threatens to devour him.





Banner #4:
Andrew Wells

Notes:
Andrew is just awesome, so I tried to make a banner that fully exploited his awesomeness.


Feedback would be great, thanks!

Andrew is the awesomest of the awesome. I love that!
I like Spike too - I'm enjoying it when you tell us about your thoughts and reasons or doing it a certain way.

Re-reading rocks.

First chapter, upper third, Xander's goodbye:

aufedersein-adieu. should spell "aufwiedersehen-adieu". (Or, if ou like it better: "aufnimmerwiedersehen", which is "let's see never again". Or: "aufwiederseh'n-adieu". That's how it is spoken, the "E" is silent.)

I'm glad i'm reading it now. :)

Love trekkie Andrew. The whole banner and text is so fitting.

Fangs and the white face correspond with the idea of Spike and I like the clocks.

Andrew is amazing. Perfect banner for his character! And I LOVE Spike's face against his face, if that makes sense? :D I like how the texture you used on the face behind the face looks like it could be the material of his suit. The clocks are fantastic too, I imagine them ticking away.

My only critique would be that Giles' head looks a bit squished, like he needs more neck or something.

You're awfully good at this for being your first banners. *gives you the side-eye*

Thanks Jamz!

"My only critique would be that Giles' head looks a bit squished, like he needs more neck or something."

I dare you to find Lorne Greene's neck in this photo. I DARE you Jammerz! OOH - I JUST REALIZED: Angel had a GREEN character named LORNE. REFERENCE, ANYONE???!!!

But yeah, you are right, he is a little squishy. I have a different pic of him I can try, but I warn you that his expression in it is 77% less awesome.
