Hiya, i'm fairly new here although i've heard of TDA before. I started making banners but for myself mostly except they turned out so badly or not the way i want them to so i want to learn to make decent and better ones, my favourite thing to make are icons they're fun and easy.

 

i'm jennifer (jen never jenny or jenna), twenty-one and i'm from the middle of nowhere in england

 

i should probably say that i'm looking to change my first name i just dont know what to yet

 

i've never properly got into making graphics, i've made a few back when i used to read fanfiction but i stopped reading them now i'm kinda slowly getting back into it. i've had ps (cs6) since 2012 but i use it mainly for gifs and the occasional icon.

 

sometimes i make tumblr themes

 

i'm in way many fandoms and get emotionally attached to fictional characters i miss allison argent, katherine pierce and elena gilbert so much

 

i think i will always be in the hp fandom because i've grown up watching and reading the series, i have recently been to the harry potter tour (took lots of snaps) and it was incredible and i'm going back soon

 

i watch more shows than i do movies but i'm watching teen wolf, the originals (im obsessed with this series), pretty little liars (even though its badly written im still watching it), htgawm (again im obsessed with this series as well, it's done so brilliantly and the cast are amazing) and a few other shows i cant think of

 

my other main fandom is 5sos, i've met them once before and ashton is my fave and i'm seeing them three times soon, i cant wait!

 

i love most things british

 

what else?

 

i have a tumblr if anyone wants to follow me there mariejeannevalets.tumblr.com

 

i dont know why its taken me so long to post this but hi, hello

Hi Jeniffer!

 

Welcome to TDA! I'm Rohini and I too am a fangirl who watches way too many shows :P

 

You love icons! How cool is that? Most of us here despair them (including me) lol. I would love to see your work! I hope you start a gallery soon :)

 

Once you have 5 posts, you can take a look around the Tutorial Centre, which has some really good tutorials and starter's tips for beginners. The Resource Arena is where you can find great textures and stock for your graphics.

 

If you need any kind of help- with either graphics or in navigating the site, or in general to talk about TV shows, don't hesitate to drop me a PM!

 

Hope you have a great time on this site!

 

Love,

Rohini

hi Jennifer! i'm Alison! welcome to tda :) definitely check out the tutorial center and the resource arena, and start entering challenges! they're a great way to practice. feel free to pm me anytime if you have questions or just want to chat. i use CS6 as well so i can definitely help with any program questions!

 

make a gallery when you feel ready, and definitely ask for lots of crit (check out the screening room in the critique corner) if you're feeling unsure about your graphics. everyone who offers crit in there is extremely helpful and great at pointing out strengths and weaknesses as well as giving constructive feedback. i'm happy to look at stuff of yours too, if you want!

 

also i LOVE PRETTY LITTLE LIARS. i haven't been watching since they've jumped into the future, because i felt so emotionally drained by the last A adventure....but i'm sure i'll be sucked back in :'D it's so hard to resist. i love it. i've been wanting to try out Teen Wolf, so i have to sometime soon :P

Hey, Alison. i will be sure to check out the tutorial center when i have the time hehe, not too sure about the challenges cos i wont get anything finished on time or i'll probably forget about it but i'll see. thank you and i defs will, i was actually wondering where the critique section was buuut i have made my first banner in a long time theres still a few things im not sure about but i will be sure to ask people on here

 

i've watched pll since the beginning and season 1/2-4 brilliant but season 5 - current have been a bit ~eh the s6 finale was brilliant though they just dont know how to properly explain the answers (leaving many plotholes!!! :unsure:) and for some reason they always leave it to the last minute to reveal stuff so its very um boring. its kind of the same w/ teen wolf the first few seasons are so great you get to meet all the characters and the humor is always there but recently the scenes have been so dark (literally) to see but theres still some humor lots of ships!!! :)

 

thanks again
