It’s been about 7 months since we’ve had any new “legit” banners, so I figured we should rectify that situation.

And since I suck at banners, I’m shoving the responsibility onto you.

Lucky you.

Lucky you.

The only real requirement I have is that the “m” in Crymore be red. Make it pink and I swear to your god I will hunt you down and glare at you for an awkward amount of time.


"Great, so what do I get out of it?"

“Great, so what do I get out of it?”

Not a goddamn thing, other than seeing your work at the top of the site every 1/Number_of_Accepted_Banners times.

I dunno, maybe I’ll buy you lunch or something if you can track me down at a con. Maybe.



So there ya have it. Entries, plz. Winners will be posted in a separate thread.

Edit: Here is a fixed version (The side of the C needed blur)

SquidTheSid says:

We have a winner.

Kishi says:

You win already!

Qrius says:

this + fixed dimensions = instant win

Di-Dorval says:

ahah. Great fixing.

Dark_Sage says:

Ooh, a bridge? Could you make an alternate with the text “May the bridges we burn light our way to the future”? It’s kind of my life philosophy.

TouToTheHouYo says:

Now light the whole thing on fire, just in case the text doesn’t drive the point home.

Justinnnnnn says:

Dude, that was genius.

ar says:

learn2antialias, that looks horrible.

Anonymous says:

It won’t be used, so it’s better to leave my name clear ^

Kawwmoi says:

of course it won’t be used. the M isn’t red.

Kurt says:

made another one in case no one appreciates my work

kan says:

This kills me.

fohfuu says:


Period says:

instant win. i love you

nina says:

Dark_Sage, let me know if you want different taglines.

I’ll make more later if I feel like it.

Dark_Sage says:

crap -> shit

Dark_Sage says:

Actually I suppose it should match the tags I used for the site’s meta description:

“Fansub reviews, tears, and more”
“Oppression and fansub reviews”

nina says:

moved the crymore logo a bit. i autist.

Dark_Sage says:

While you’re still fixing, just make that right-side text “Fansub reviews, oppression, tears, and more”. The visuals are top-notch, but I’m not 100% on the words. Hell, they’re still not perfect with this, but my brain ain’t really working properly right now.

nina says:

*fans self* D_S just complimented the top-notch visuals of an artwork I stole off minitokyo. Goodness me, this is too much for my poor soul.

Here’s the new stolen banner:

Dark_Sage says:

The hell do you mean you didn’t draw that? You’re a low-down dirty fraud! ;_;

(I liked how the colors fit tis what I meant to say.)

nina says:

What can I say, my inner child is a scumbag.

Heh, I know. (─‿‿─)

AzureHakua says:

I like kinda basic/plain banners. And since you like Sakura lesbians:

fohfuu says:
Probably will do another, who cares

xythar's a fag says:


Justinnnnnn says:

You sir gave me a good laugh!

TouToTheHouYo says:

So has Xythar reached meme status here yet or what?

fohfuu says:

0/10, lel harder

adra says:

I figured it was to do with the notoriety of the Commie IDF in general.

Justinnnnnn says:

Xythar banner is best banner.

Hunta says:

I’ll just leave this here.

flipr says:

Some wizard really needs to make one using Kamina’s glasses for the m.

I’d take a shitty stab at it, but I’m too busy trying to sync up porn to skrillex.

Hunta says:

Well thank you for that wonderfull idea, though not quite.

flipr says:

That is so much better than I had imagined

Justinnnnnn says:

Genius edit Hunta.

Dark_Sage says:

Hot damn, I’m putting that shit on my Twitter. Thx <3

Pelfmiester says:

I was going to make you one again, but now I’m sick and not feeling up to it. There seems to be a lot of good ones this time though. Maybe if I’m feeling up to it in the morning.

Justinnnnnn says:

Could you please replace some of the shittier banners, and not just add these? There were some pretty boring ones before, and this time around there seems to be an excessive amount of good banners.

Dark_Sage says:

I plan to do a full wipe. Some months later I might add my favorites back into the rotation, though:

Pelfmiester says:

7 is genius. Don’t care much for 5 though.

Justinnnnnn says:

That’s odd, I’d say 05 is by far the better one (actually, maybe the best among the current ones).

Kamica says: <- Looking back at all the old banners, the only exceptional ones were 05 and 07. You really should keep those two around. Why even bother with a full wipe? Don't see the point.

Dark_Sage says:

I like to keep things fresh. Can’t keep relying on the same old forever.

Dium says:

haruka best girl

Dark_Sage says:

Just so I get this squared in my head, the idea behind the tag is personification of the site, yeah?

Dark_Sage says:

Winners tomorrowish. Though, you can submit shit throughout the year in like the Off Topic or something if there’s some inspiration that hits later.

wow says:

I love these. The first one is better though, you can read the hilarious subs better with it. In the second one you cant read the “crymore” and you cant read the text.
