THIS IS NOT A CHAPTER: Header Design

I am looking for a new banner to use for the site (Note: The current one is not my work) so if anyone wants to take the time to make/submit one,  I would appreciate it.

The old one and new one are pictured below

If you really want to do it, the specifics are as follow:

Size: 940px × 198px (If it’s larger, wordpress auto-crops it to that size)

Design: Whatever you want relating to the story/characters

    i can’t sorry.. this thing needs to much imagination and creativity because there’s not too much picture of Shieldbro and co. out there. I’m really sorry.

    for the look of your site, the previous banner fit well. It was a more polished look that complemented the current setup.

      Yeah, but every once in a while you gotta freshen things up in order to kill the monotony. If our great hero of the translation (Devil of the Feels, Saint of the Holy WordPress) needs a new picture, then we must supply it. As pope of the church of the Feels (and misunderstood protagonists), I say we make this place spiffy.

    Id say a neat suggestion you could do, have the top banner be nothing but pictures of the different shields. multiple people could create the shields then stream them into 1 big image.

    En cherchant des images pour la bannière je suis tombé sur ce site qui reprend vos traductions mais rajoute des images trouvées sur le web. Je me dis que ces images peuvent intéresser certains : http://laclongquan.deviantart.com/ .

      I kinda wanted to freshen things up. I’ve been using the 2nd one for 25 chapters now (The Christmas one for the first 8) and it was just something I threw together from an existing image in 15 minutes, so I thought I should change it up.

    Ce n’est pas génial mais c’est juste un test pour voir si ça pourrait plaire ou pas car il n’y a pas de fond blanc. Je verrais pour faire une meilleur image si ça ne va pas. Mais bon, je ne suis pas un pro et j’utilise Gimp -_-‘ : http://www.hostingpics.net/viewer.php?id=636671shielbrob.jpg

    Translated with Reverso: it is not brilliant but it is just a test to see if that could please or not because there is no white bottom. I would see to make better one image if that does not go. Well, I am not a pro and I use Gimp – _ – ‘ .

    I was just browsing the link that Yoraikun give to us, and i noticed that in the light novel the Spirit Turtle has a alter ego and the Hero of the Book is a bad guy, i thought that Kiel would take the Scythe but, apparently already exist one. Well, i kinda wanna read the light novel version now… The Spirit Turtle incident seemed to have a lot more backstory or importance…

        First of all, please put a spoiler tag next time Killua. And second of all, the weapons will find new owners when the current one dies. And ya, I’m interested in the Light Novel too since they added quite abit of extra content to it compared to the WN

    Given the all over the place nature of this “chapter’s” discussion I don’t feel out of place asking this. I have been led to believe that the supremely slow (monthly I believe) manga ‘World Customize Creator’ has a light novel like the shieldbro LN has its not very far along and slow to release manga counterpart. If this is true can anyone point me in the direction of a place to read the LN? (in english)

          For the purposes of shieldbro maybe not. But I’m not aware of many other series’ with a 3peice media release. Separate light and web novel formats and monthly manga release. The stories always differ in each media format, they almost have to. The release rate for a text only novel can be as fast as 30 chapters a week if that’s how many the author comes up with, but for manga regardless of how fast you can come up with the story you still need to draw it. Also time frames are harder to synchronize between the two different formats. 1 manga chapter could cover between 1 to 10 text chapters, so doing them parallel is impossible.

    Okay, I made three roughs since three finished pieces would actually be a lot of work and I am really lazy. Here’s what I came up with on the fly.

    Pros
    * All the current party members are there.
    * Somewhat serious. Shows a moment of impossible odds.
    Cons
    * You can’t really see the shield.
    * You can’t really tell that’s the Spirit Tortoise either.
    * My perspective really sucks.

    Pros
    * More lighthearted
    * Has more personality
    Cons
    * It will be a lot of work to do.
    * It’s way too busy visually speaking.
    * There is no shield.

    Pros
    * Very simple, very easy
    * Actually has the title in it
    Cons
    * Characters themselves are a bit harder to see.
    * I have no idea what the carriage is supposed to look like.
    * I apparently have a very hard time incorporating the actual shield into these things.
