Active Banner Artists
There are currently 15 active banner artists.

Please do not contact more than one banner artist for a single request. You may contact a 2nd artist if the first is unavailable or does not respond to your request. Always give your banner artist credit in your story or chapter notes.

If you make a request, please provide the following information: I'm happy to help with anything you'd like, just give me an idea of the pics you'd like, the style and wording style.
I can't do manips but I can use transparent's as long as they are available in that format. I'm open to suggestion and I don't have access to the apps many other artists do so my banners are a little more basic but I pour my whole heart into them.
Take a look at the banners on my page to see the types of things I do: http://dark-solace.org/elysian/viewuser.php?uid=15099

Examples of my work:
If you make a request, please provide the following information: I love creating fic banners and often use Microsoft Paint followed by PicMonkey photo editing website (Photoshop and I have a complicated relationship which I neglected to try and mend ages ago).
For any requests, I guess I would simply like the title of your story, any preferred details of the story you want acknowledged in the banner (i.e. a book, a picture, an object that relates to the plot, poems, song lyrics, etc.), and of course if you have them, preferred images/screencaps of the characters in your story. (So please include any specific photos of Spike or Buffy or their actor's faces if you want them featured. Otherwise I'll simply use google images.) I'd be happy to further discuss specific details of any banner via PM. biggrin
Examples of my work:
If you make a request, please provide the following information: I have so much fun creating these banners. I'd love to create one for you.
Please include the general theme and an overview of your story or idea. I can send you a few concepts based on what you send me. Be sure to include if it is AU, Canon, or All Human, as well as any major pieces you feel should be included in the banner.
Examples of my work:
If you make a request, please provide the following information: I try to design banners that tell the story, that express more than "here are some characters and a title." To that end, a detailed discussion (of the story, what points the author most wants to convey, the text for the image, etc.) needs to take place before I begin. 
Turn around time from discussion to completed banner will vary based on my work schedule, other projects I have in motion, the details of the image I'm creating, and what changes are needed from one version to the next, as we go through the final author approval process. That said, once an idea for the image forms in my head, I'm slightly obsessive about making it a reality, and will prioritize the project as much as possible.
