    Hey Zachy, welcome to Taz!

    Since you asked... :lildevil:
    I will say that I think I like the background of the buttons, but the red on them didn't, right off the bat, make me think of blood. Maybe using blood dripping down them will give you that effect of "bloody buttons" that you want? Maybe making the blood more solid instead of, where in parts we see through it and the illusion of blood isn't so convincing?

    I would think that if blood is in your mind while creating this, the first thing you'd want a viewer to think of would be blood, which in my case, I'm so sorry but I didn't. :(

    Keep working at these though, and maybe do some image searches of blood on walls or dripping blood to see if you can fix in your head the image that will shout to all of us...

    B l o o d !

    Good luck

    :)

    yeah, i agree. these buttons should've been called 'splattered buttons'
    anyways, i hope i could make buttons and contribute here, too.

    They are nice, but wouldn't fit well on my sports forum. Thanks, though.

    I don't know about any one else's monitor, but on mine the buttons look seriously too dark and blobby. If you hadn't described them as bloody, I would have never known.

    There's way too many splatters on there, it makes it hard to notice that the ranks even have titles.

    Haha, as a matter of fact they do. If you look closely enough you'll see New User, Moderator, etc. Amongst the "blood" splatters.

    .. Ohh, I see them. :D

    The splattering may not be the problem, though. I just suggest a new font in a different color. Perhaps one that's bigger/bolder and takes up more of the button. I understand you were trying to fit in with the whole "splatter" theme with that font, but I don't think it's necessary.

    Other than that, they look good. Keep practicing! :)

    I see them. One says New User, Administrator and I cant see some of em. I think the last one on 2nd row doesn't have any text on the image.

    Perhaps if you put a stroke around the letters they would stand out more?

    I wouldn't have known there is some text in them, if someone hadn't mentioned it. It didn't bring blood in my mind, but it could look good in some dark site.

    Yeah, on all but the most lower, right button... Try this with "A Theme for Murder" font. It looks pretty good if you don't use red. I used white/grey.

    I'm confused. Are these buttons meant to have text on them? If that is the case...I can't make out the text on them. The style and background is good though.

    I can't read the text on the buttons.

    Not too back though, maybe tone down the splatters a bit and change the font color.

    Also, maybe try some other blood patterns...smears, drips, etc. I did a bloody layout for halloween on my site last year. I may still have some of the source images.

    You could also try real blood. Obtaining it can be a pain though. Example (the red logo): http://helldot.com/?styleid=5
