Fanfic banner for musicbitch 
3rd-Apr-2008 07:38 pm
musicbitch asked me if I could make her a Buffy manip she needed for a story banner. I promised to have a crack at it, which I then did, and the results turned out to be to her liking. After that the whole thing sort of escalated and I ended up doing the whole banner. Thank you for giving me the chance to try and help you out, and to see if I was up for this kind of challenge! And for those who haven't read the fic in question yet and wish to do so, her journal is the place to go.

The Buffy manip this whole thing started from can be found in here.
The base was kindly provided by musicbitch.

Just beautiful, but you know that already=)

Awww. You're so sweet. *huggles* I'm glad to hear that you still like it. Many thanks for stopping by and telling me so - again. I'm so damn insecure when it comes to my art that this kind of feedback always makes me incredibly happy. So please do feel free to go all repeat-o girl on me at any given time and as often as you will. :D

Gorgeous. Buffy looks fantastic. With hair that curly, Spike won't be able to help calling her Goldilocks.

Hee, Goldilocks! :D I hadn't come to think of it (probably because for a good while her hair was just pixels to me) but you soooo hit the nail on the head with that one! There's no way he'll be able to resist calling her that, and she'll probably be rolling her eyes at him like never before... :D

Many thanks for the ever so lovely comment! I'm really happy to hear that you think the banner is working and that the manip turned out alright. *huggles*

That's a beautiful manip, hon! Very well done. I love Buffy in curly hair. Spike won't be able to resist her. You can see it in his expression.

Great composition, great colours. As always! *smooches*

Awww, you're the best! *hugs you so very tight* I've had a horrible day and a half and you just made me smile for the first time after all that horribleness went down. Thank you ever so much!

I'm glad you like Buffy in curly hair - after all so does Spike. :) I like it curly, too, but damn what a bitch it was to manip! All those curly locks falling down on her face... But I think it turned out alright in the end.

And last but not least super extra thanks for the color feedback. I was pretty anxious about them - but then again when aren't I. This time I was worried that the colors might've been too dark - that the banner wasn't bright enough as a whole. But I was suffering from a series of migraine fits at the time I was finishing the banner and I just couldn't stand anything bright. And then, when I was alright again and my eyes weren't so sensitive anymore I wasn't quite sure about the results. But if you like them and say they work alright then who am I to argue... :D

I'm so sorry RL gave you a hard time. Not fair! *big bear hug*

You did an excellent job blending the curls. I can see the shadows where the curls fall across her face -- it looks perfect.

As for the colours, sometimes less is more. This way Buffy and Spike really draw the eye. They seem to pop out of the image.

Awww. Thanks! *bearhugs you back* RL's been kicking me in the head good and proper this week. There's been all this stuff I should've been dealing with but haven't really known how. And then my internet connection went down last Wednesday and I'm running alarmingly late with the manips I'm trying to finish for my seasonal_spuffy posting day and I just can't mess it up.

That being said, this lovely comment of yours totally made my day. Brought the hugs and puppies back to my life it did. As for the blending/color fb, I'm really happy to hear you think so. It means a great deal to me that you give your time to giving me such wonderful and detailed feedback. *huggles*
