Do you have any banners for Webcomics Community? I haven't been able to find any on the site.

Hey there - I asked a similar question a little bit back - the short answer is "no."  The long answer is, we can modify the existing title image into a banner if we choose OR we can make our own and submit them for approval.  I just don't think anybody has tackled this project yet. ^.~

Well these are the ads that Trevor (Takacomics) made up and I think they are great. I just don't think they match the sizes you guys are talking about so I suggested you either make one of your own (which I'm perfectly fine with as long as I get to see it) or cut up the ads and make something from those.





As someone who is not an artist himself there really isn't much more I can offer. I keep hoping the community will step up with the stuff like this.  :-\

Those banners are great! But I'm thinking of something smaller, 88x31 pixels seems to be pretty standard. I'd be happy to design one in that size if you need one. I'd just need to know what font you use in the title graphic to try and keep a unified look.

I have no idea what font Trevor used. You can feel free to design something completely original if the mood strikes you. That said, the next time I see him on line I'll grab him and ask him what font he used. And I'll send him a PM here with the same.

Thanks for getting involved 3XLT

Thanks for finding that out. I've tried a few designs with that font but it's very hard to read at the 88x31 size. I'll play around with it and try to post something within the next few days.

I like the first one.  Maybe give it a border, but otherwise it looks good.

Wow you weren't joking. Those are tiny. Looking good though. Thanks for making them. If anyone else wants to make some don't be shy. It's all good.  ;)
