    As much as I like my friend @gracker221's artwork, it's time for something new. (And he seems to have gone AWOL as of quite a while ago.)

    This is what I currently have for the icon:

    YouTube Icon.png

    250 x 250

    And for the banner:

    YouTube Banner.png

    2474 x 1368 (The reason for the odd size is that 2560 x 1440, for some reason, wouldn't work, even though my friend didn't go over the size limit.)

    And this is how it displays on YouTube:

    For my new icon, I would like this. I want it to use the same background as what the banner will have, shown below, with a one-pixel—or a two-pixel, if you feel that looks better—black border and be cropped to only show this:


    I'm not exactly sure what the recommended size for icons are. A quick search shows 800 x 800, but I don't know if that's still applicable—as in, that might have been from before—nor do I know the file size limit, so see if you can find something official on the dimensions/file size before doing the icon. The 250 x 250 icon my friend used worked okay, but 800 x 800 might just be for a better universal display over many different types of viewing devices.

    For the banner, I want the background for the Arc the Lad: Twilight of the Spirits cover art, which is where Maru, the character above, is from, except without the game logo or the characters and sword in there. I'm not sure how easy that would be, so let me know if that's a problem. Recommended size for the banner is 2560 x 1440 with a minimum size of 2048 x 1152. Please use the recommended size. File size limit is four megabytes. Once this is set, I'll post more instructions on how I want my name displayed on the banner.

    For both the icon and the banner, please use PNG format. Thanks!

    I'm totally down for tryin to make you something! I don't have much of my digital art on here, or on deviantart, it's mostly on tumblr. But the tags never work for me.
