Hi there,

this is my newest thumbnail for todays video. What do you think about it?
A little background: Freljord is a fraction in Legends of Runeterra. Mostly with cold climate etc.

I think the design on this is very good.

Here is how to make it better though - as a Thumbnail, when you scale it down, its going to be super hard to read that text and super hard to see your face clearly.

So as another poster suggested, put a black outline on the text (stroke its called) and scale your face up to size OR remove your face. Sometimes simpler is better!

Making an outline for text was the first thought, and of course someone's already mentioned that ;) good!
I'd also be careful with the right down corner as it's the place for the timecode for all videos on Youtube. Just pay attention and don't let the timecode cover anything important, like your face
