Opinions on my banner

I've never been too great at making art, or being artistic, which may be why I think my banner seems bland and generic. Any ideas on how to make mine better? Here's a link to my page, since I'm not sure as to what would be the best way to show it.

It's pretty good. I have no artistic ability either, I made my banner and thumbnails from pictures on the internet, if you use paint.net or photoshop then layers are your best friend ever. With a lot of time and patients you can create something awesome using that method. But I like your banner, hand drawn art is always nice to see.

Thanks! It's actually not hand drawn, though. I made the guy and the heart using a pixel based art program called Aserprite. So, I'll just keep working at it, I guess.

Ah, it looked hand drawn to me. Pretty good work, I find doing pixel work very difficult so nice job.

I think it's charming. It's got that MS Paint feel to it. Not in a bad way, in a kind of ironic way.

It is pretty good actually it is simple but it kind of has a retro 8 bit feel which always is fun

I love the simple design and the shining heart with the "N" inside it! I think you did an awesome job. It might be a great idea to bother somebody with Pixel Art experience to make a pixelated rendition of this design. That would be a great direction to take to evolve your design. Something about how you've put everything together makes me think it would look REALLY good pixelated. Excellent job, sir :)

Honest opinion, i dont really like it at all. No offense but I assumed to hear some 11 year when I clicked on a video.
plus side I like the logo you chose, needs some polishing and cleaning up though? isnt it a reference to kirby or some other nintendo game just a generic game heart? just be careful when it comes to referencing something in your branding. So far i'm liking the videos on your channel but I would never know if they were reviews because of the banner.

saying that, after checking some videos, I'm liking them. be happy to help you with your branding ^^ if you need any help

I'd agree with Brendalf on this one. Put a little more work into the banner if you could somehow.

To be honest I'm not one to talk since I don't even have a banner yet. To be honest I'm kind of fear my lack of artistic abilities.

It's very simple, in a good way. It's welcoming and I love the color scheme.
