Feel free to use this divider in your posts!

The idea

The initial idea of creating this divider started when I realized that after writing so many posts I still had no header background image on PeakD/HIVE.

Shame on me...

So I started to work on a simple design where I combined background images and front images (splinterlands monsters and summoners) with a simple line between each section.

The result looked like this:


Which instantly gave me inspiration to create a divider based on this design.

Just making the design a bit less high was basically the start of the design:


The progress

The start

The start was just playing around a bit with different shapes.
I wanted to have a shape that has some link to the hive logo, however, in a subtle way as it's still a splinterlands divider.

The borders

It didn't take too long before I was happy with the shape.
However, playing around with the borders turned out to be a longer process.

The details

Eventually I settle with a very subtle border.

Next up, I have this idea of having some smoke coming from underneath the divider.

Actually, to create this "smoke" I used a splinterlands image of a monster. Bonus points for those of you who can find which monster got chopped up and is functioning as divider smoke right here.

The models

Even though I was really happy with my "models" for my hive header, I felt like using models that are looking at you worked just a bit better. So I changed the four middle front images.

The logo

To finish, I did some minor cleanup on the middle part so that the logo and the border work nicely together.

The final result looks like this.

I have already created 1 other divider with 4 different models. Just a bonus one that you can also use if you prefer this one.

Do you want more of these?

If you want more dividers, please show that you are interested in these.

I have ideas to create similar dividers but with different models, so you can use the same divider, but always with different characters in the same post.

I feel like this would make posts look pretty cool. But maybe that's just me.

The more people that think this is useful, the more motivated I will be (as it does take some time to actually finish these).

Any other feedback is definitely also welcome!
