In this case, I don't think it requires much art skill. More of an artistic eye. If you think about the shape of the banner while bringing up a nice crack of dawn image from Minetest, then you can hit f12 and then crop the image and adjust the dimensions. I don't know what the banner options are, but if it is a changing banner, then take a lot of snapshots. Get on some of the creative servers and snapshot skylines. :)

I will put a couple of examples of the sort of thing that I think could be cropped up as screen shots on the regular forum under general discussion/post your screen shots. Feel free to use them or laugh at them.

I put a WorldEdit Save file up at https://forum.minetest.net/viewtopic.php?f=12&t=7304&p=279761#p279761 it is a flaming offtopic banner in permanent flame blocks. Using it, all sorts of banners can be made with the flaming offtopic in the background.

Yeah, I saw that the other day. I figure I'll have the current banner until later today, or maybe tomorrow, when I can find enough time to use the flaming offtopic one :D

It is a pity that we are so short on download space or I would be submitting stuff directly. The again, having an excuse to point people here is not such a bad thing. I like the thought of having more than one banner and even having banners that are seasonal.

Ideally, if it is possible, having several banners swap out can be a pretty cool effect. As an example, rotates out to different banner images.

Narf!! The banner at toolmakingart used to rotate out every time you refreshed or went there. Now it appears to change every ten or so seconds. Great, now I have to go look at the code and decide if I want to fix the problem.
