If you do not wish to request an avatar but still want a custom made one:
The Adoption Center (http://www.giantitp.com/cgi-bin/yabb/YaBB.pl?board=comics;action=display;num=1153776819 ;start=0#0) is Open!

OotS Avatar Artists: If your status has changed, please PM either Lilly or one of the other Arts and Crafts mods to change the list. Thank you.

To all others: It is considered bad form to use an avatar without asking permission of the artist. Unless, of course, you have it specifically made for you. Please ask before you use any of the avatars in the portfolios of the artists unless it states in their requisites or on their portfolio site that you may use the avatar without asking permission.

If after you've posted your request to the request thread twice and there is no response, please PM one of the active artists below. (Do not repost your request until at least 48 hours after your original request, please.)

If you are PMing a request please do not PM multiple artists. They don't want to waste their time doing a favour for you if you've already got someone else doing the exact same thing.

A slight suggestion: to save loading time to make a post, please make a link to your picture after 3 days to make it easier on dial-up.

This is simply a list of the posters who activley make and have made avatars in OotS style.

Guides to Making Avatars:
Please check here before you post a question about how to make your own avatars.

Is this where I would post my avatar request? I don't want anyone specific just someone who has the will to get it done. Well I don't know if this is where I put it but i will anyways because its to early for me to be worried right now so here it goes

I know, I know I request alot of avatars but for good reason. Anyone else a fan of Elder Scrolls 4: Oblivion? I love it! but thats not the point. The point is that i would be ever so greatful if someone could make me an avatar that look like a man wearing all daedric armor with a daedric mace. If you are not familiar with it I can try to send you something on the 24th but I cant make any promises. Pm me if you need anything and thanks in advance. Oh yeah, by the way no helmet but instead a middle aged mans face with shoulder length grey hair. Also Pm me if I wasn't specific enough. It is really early in the morning and I am really tired so I am off to bed...

Requesting an avatar, please--two options follow. (EDIT: Requests accepted :) Avatar artists please look for one not yet adopted.)

Sossity: Half-elf female. Green wide-spaced eyes, no indication of a nose (she has one but it's too flat to be seen on stick art), small mouth without a smile, pale skin with pink undertone. Long red unkempt hair, with a bit of deer horn knotted into it--the character sheet picture has horns tied atop her head, a written description has chunks of horn dangling and bumping against her shoulders, artist's license applies. Artist's license applies also to wide-brimmed hat being there or not, and the exact nature of her plain bleached garment. Heavy boots and gloves in the same color as the garment. Sossity's habitat is the forest, and she could be shown climbing a tree or befriending a beast, or fleeing a forest fire.

Bauti: Halfling female. Dark brown eyes, zestful grin with teeth sharpened to points, skin with yellow undertone. Kinky-curly dark brown hair, dyed blonde but with a lot of roots showing, artist's license to length and style. Artist's license applies also to skin shade, possible piercings and tattoos, and wearing or not wearing studded leather. Outfit is sunshine yellow shirt tucked into pants, laced with flame-orange sashes and cord in the Greek fashion. Bauti's pose is indisputable: mid-performance, swinging a set of lit fire ropes (search for images of "fire poi") streaking trails of fiame; the more acrobatic and flamboyant Bauti's pose, the better.

A small suggestion on your slight suggestion Lily.
We're terrible at it. I don't think anybody remembers to link it after a while, so you might want to make that un bold as well.

I posted this a few days ago in the old Arts and Crafts thread, but I thought I should re-post here just in case it got missed.

Hello. I've been posting here for a while now, and I've decided it's about time I got a custom avatar! So here's a polite request:
I would like a female drow with longish red hair wearing a black longcoat and a pair or red wings on her back. If possible, I would like her to be wearing a mask similar to that of the holy symbol of Vhaeraun.
(Linky: http://www.wizards.com/dnd/images/FR_ART/HolySymbols/Vhaeraunsymbol.jpg )
If the mask is too complicated, leave it out. I don't mind.

Thanks in advance to all the wonderful avatar artists. If it's not too much trouble, if you do decide to answer this request, could you PM me when you're done? I don't know how often I'm going to be able to check the boards in the next few weeks. Life has gotten a bit busy. Thanks again in advance!

I'll do the drow. Sounds like an interesting request.

Should be done soon enough.

Best I could do under the circumstances, was unsure what 'pale skin with pink undertone' meant. Tried to do dual layer with a touch of transparency... ick, didn't work. But here is my attempt at Sossity -

Corrections can be made, either ~ PM me or respond here.

EDIT: Want to mention that fox is HEAVILY inspired by another avatar's works... Going to try and hunt down the name so I can give credit where it is due.

So I've had this character in my head since I've recently been playing Jade Empire, and I drew him fairly well once, and can't, for the life of me, do it again. But then again, I can't draw people very well in general. Anyways, on to the request:

I'd like some sort of Shaolin Monk guy. He's the strong silent type, who wanders around defending people who cant defend themselves, etc. I'd like him to have a big Coolie hat over his eyes, with only his mouth showing, maybe in kind've a smirk. Then I'd like some simple old chinese clothes, with a cloak (preferably billowing to one side) and a simple staff planted on the ground.

A few pictures for inspiration:

Yeah, those flaming ropes would be really hard. I might give it a shot, but since I'm new at this I don't expect to do very well on that one. Odd poses are still hard for me.

Requesting an avatar, please--two options follow.

Sossity: Half-elf female. Green wide-spaced eyes, no indication of a nose (she has one but it's too flat to be seen on stick art), small mouth without a smile, pale skin with pink undertone. Long red unkempt hair, with a bit of deer horn knotted into it--the character sheet picture has horns tied atop her head, a written description has chunks of horn dangling and bumping against her shoulders, artist's license applies. Artist's license applies also to wide-brimmed hat being there or not, and the exact nature of her plain bleached garment. Heavy boots and gloves in the same color as the garment. Sossity's habitat is the forest, and she could be shown climbing a tree or befriending a beast, or fleeing a forest fire.

Bauti: Halfling female. Dark brown eyes, zestful grin with teeth sharpened to points, skin with yellow undertone. Kinky-curly dark brown hair, dyed blonde but with a lot of roots showing, artist's license to length and style. Artist's license applies also to skin shade, possible piercings and tattoos, and wearing or not wearing studded leather. Outfit is sunshine yellow shirt tucked into pants, laced with flame-orange sashes and cord in the Greek fashion. Bauti's pose is indisputable: mid-performance, swinging a set of lit fire ropes (search for images of "fire poi") streaking trails of fiame; the more acrobatic and flamboyant Bauti's pose, the better.

Fabulous work--I'm floored by the response.

While I admire both renditions of Sossity, and Omen's fire background is perfect, something about the non-sticklike legs/pants of Faceninja's drawing tipped the decision and I'd like to use that one for my avatar.

ElfLad--You're making the same mistake I used to make when drawing flails; the piece extending from the hand (the rope in your case and the flail handle in mine) is straight, and only the piece attached to the end of that (the trails of fire, or the flexible bit of the flail) is curved to show motion. The curved weapons in Shirwill Jack's Sheaux (Vorpal Tribble's sig) are whips at rest, not ropes in motion. Evil grin noted and approved though ;D

Well, in the spirit of a new campaign, I'd say it's about time I knelt before the altar of OotS artistry (I noticed a pretty big pantheon) and humbly submitted a request. You guys are spectacular, really.

So! Here's the skinny. I'm in a Naruto d20 campaign, and I'd like a ninja avatar (if you're familiar with the series, that'd probably be a lot easier).

Chiba:

Features: Long blonde hair, covering half of her face, wears a forehead protector (no symbol; I'll add it myself once I find out what village I'm starting in), wears the standard mesh ninja undergarment with a short-sleeved open jacket worn over, along with mid-length shorts with the shuriken holster on one leg, and the standard ninja sandals. The color scheme isn't all that important to me (I suppose it's an opportunity for creative liberties). Same goes for accessories and such. I'd prefer if you drew what looks good, rather than pandering to me. :P

Pose/Expression: Somewhat confident/cocky, I suppose. I'm not much for poses; I'm sure that you'd know what looks good better than I would.

Reference: I had Mitarashi Anko in mind when I thought up this character, so this might be of help.

In thinking to changing to my alter-ego on these forums I think that I need an avatar to go with the name. That said what I need is . . . a chocobo.

Not just any chocobo though, I need a chocobo that is the very essence of evil distilled into a fearsome chocobo form!

So what I'm looking for is a chocobo with glowing red eyes (unless you can think of a better evil stereotype) and sharp teeth, preferably very sharp teeth dripping with blood. With the pose I'd like something like this (http://www.ff-heroic.com/ff7/images/chocobo&clad.gif): that is with the outspread wings and the prominent head. Obviously without the added Cloud too in case anyone was wondering.

I don't really have any specifications other than that, I guess that just means that anyone who decides to do this can go nuts a little bit with the inspiration.

So, I decided around now is the right time to get myself an avatar based on my townian alter ego.

Gender: Male.
Equipment: Wears orange shirt and pants with some stains on them, also has a black wand tucked into his belt.
Other Notable Features: Wears a pair of glasses. Erm, glasses-shaped Eyes of the Eagle. Little difference. Is rather short: not dwarf/halfling/gnome/midget short, just 5'3. Has a stubbled chin.
Hair Color: Dark Brown
Race: Human
Class: Wizard
Preferred Pose: Something that makes him appear suitably arrogant. Or magicy. Maybe both.

Cornugon
2006-08-16, 03:15 PM
I'd like to request a Horned Devil, with a bit of a comic twist to it.

In short:
Gender - Male...ish (It's a devil, do you really want to check?)
Equipment - Spiked Chain (held), Bath Towel (around waist), Shower Cap (on head)
Noteable features - None, really.
Skin - See Reference
Race - Cornugon (Horned Devil)
Pose - Angry
Reference (http://www.wizards.com/dnd/images/MM35_gallery/MM35_PG52.jpg) - The big, winged, scaly one in the back. (Image Part of SRD and property of WoTC, see you Monster Manual for a better veiw.)

If you don't feel like tossing on the bath towel and shower cap, that's fine. I'll be happy with it either way.

Actually, that's not too bad... On the one with the face in shadow, could you make the eyes glow yellow, and the smile white, so you can see them more clearly through the shadowyness? And on the one with the hood down, could you make the hair not quite so... on top of his head? And maybe some hair on the side of his head, too...

And if you could do one with them apart, that'd be really great.

Its got a grey background because your browser doesn't fully support PNG. On a browser with proper support, it is already transparent. I leave it on PNG for 3 reasons:
1) GIF, while better supported on IE, loses some color quality, as you have noticed.
2) Sodipodi can only export to PNG, meaning I have to load the image in GIMP to convert to GIF, and thats extra hassle.
3) I use a browser that supports PNG

Oh.. pixely and blah. Yeah. Uhm.. create another layer and move it to the bottom, dump it with white paint and use the magic wand tool to select it and cntrl+K to delete it. "Save as" and replace the "png" with "gif" then export it, uncheck the "gif comment" and save it.

Neo, I guess your problem is that your magic wand tool is not correctly set up. You have to check the option for antialiasing. Here is a picture (from the Inckscape/Gimp how to thread) of how your settings should be : http://i32.photobucket.com/albums/d45/_amorelli_/Inkscape%20Guide/FuzzySelectBar.png

I don't think my AA has ever NOT been on for the wand tool. I've got an idea that might be the solution to the problem, but I can't test it until I'm back on my box. I'm also using IE for my browser here, which means I get a lovely grey box instead of transparency for PNGs.

Ego Slayer
2006-08-17, 07:00 PM
I think I fixed it correctly so if you want to use that one. I didn't think about the AA not being set..

The layer you add is transparent right? I had a problem with it not working at some point too..

I have AA, Sample Merged and Slect Transparent areas checked for the wand tool.

Repost:

Well, in the spirit of a new campaign, I'd say it's about time I knelt before the altar of OotS artistry (I noticed a pretty big pantheon) and humbly submitted a request. You guys are spectacular, really.

So! Here's the skinny. I'm in a Naruto d20 campaign, and I'd like a ninja avatar (if you're familiar with the series, that'd probably be a lot easier).

Chiba Michiko

Features: Long blonde hair, covering half of her face, wears a forehead protector (no symbol; I'll add it myself once I find out what village I'm starting in), wears the standard mesh ninja undergarment with a short-sleeved open jacket worn over, along with mid-length shorts with the shuriken holster on one leg, and the standard ninja sandals. The color scheme isn't all that important to me (I suppose it's an opportunity for creative liberties). Same goes for accessories and such. I'd prefer if you drew what looks good, rather than pandering to me. Tongue

Pose/Expression: Somewhat confident/cocky, arms folded across her chest or hands on her hips. Something along those lines would be best, I think.

Reference: I had Mitarashi Anko in mind when I thought up this character, so this might be of help:

Would someone make me a "Death Doll" please? Not as an avatar, but for a signature. Preferably exactly 70 pixels tall, no max width, no text, and OoTS style. Kinda specific, I know.

Well, the Death Doll was made in the Playground Squares (http://www.giantitp.com/cgi-bin/yabb/YaBB.pl?board=silly;action=display;num=1154612382; start=465) thread. The link will lead you to the page that has the first occurence of the Death Doll (by Death; your friend the Reaper, fourth post on the page) and is still being used for the next three pages.

It would definitely add to the silliness of the thread, which is an ultimate good. ;) Thank you!

A disturbing concept just came up in discussion over in Random Banter land, and I simply must have it made into a signature image.

With this in mind, I would like to request that someone make an Elder Weasel: an unholy cross between an Elder Brain and a weasel. The exact details are up to the artist.

Thanks in advance, all!

edit: clarification. Since specific requests are always better than vague ones, I'll take a stab at describing precisely what I'm after. You're all familiar with the Elder Brains form the Monster Manual, right? I'm looking for one of those, with weasels growing out of it instead of tentacles. That, or a giant, tentacled, vaguely brain-shaped weasel. Whichever you think looks better, I guess. Wow, that didn't actually clairfy anything, did it?

Grug
2006-08-18, 11:30 PM
Moved from topic Make Me an Avatar

This is Grug. Up till now i've been a low impact board member, but i want to ramp it up into hi gear. I thnik to start i should get a propper avatar.

First a bit about my name. If you've ever seen another Grug on the internet, It's me. No exceptions. I've used this screename for years. It all started when i tried to use battle.net for Diablo 1. I picked a warrior, and i needed a tough sounding name. So i picked Grug. And the name stuck. Grug became a mace-wielding badass who never made it past the caverns .

However, in real life i am nothing like the brutish, club swinging tough i seem like. I enjoy riddles, games of mental skill, and Various bits of Trivia. If i had to give my stats, i'd say i have 6 Str, 8 dex, 12 Con 13 Int, 8 Wis, and 11 Cha.

I'm looking forward to seeing the entries. The creator of my favorite avatar will recieve the services of the town Grug (grug's are lucky you know). Look in the archives, i was one of the first people to post in the town thread.

Happy Crafting!

Addition: I've been thinking about it and i would like to have a large man with short black hair, clean faced, wearing Godly Plate of the Whale (from diablo), sitting on a rock and reading a book, with his Dreamflange Mace leaning against him. Of course, feel free to do something else if you feel inclined.

I have only been doing avies for a short time, but it is my understanding that if what you upload to a server is not 117x117 (photobucket doesn't care it will still look right there) the forums or IE squishes them to that size. yours appears to have been a smidgen over 117 tall if I had to quess.

:edit: @^ PNG has nothing to do with it, I use PNG myself.

1) Use thicker lines.
2) Make sure the avatar is 117x117 pixels, or its gonna be resized and stretched and generally mucked up when you use it.

:edit:
http://i90.photobucket.com/albums/k280/Exid_Taosin/Mage.png
This is a direct link to your current avatar. As you can see, its larger than 117x117. Specifically, its 177x177, which leads me to think it was a simple numbering error on your part. I suggest resizing it to 117x117, then adjusting the lines to be ~2 times as thick as they are at its CURRENT size. Also, the eyes are rather large, and the head is rather small. For a 117x117 avatar, I've found that ~40 pixels is a good size for the head.

You are welcome. If you do need further assistance let me know *;)

Exid~ with the other sound advice above, I would also add that non-straight lines help. You can easily modify the lines by:

Using the point editor (about 3-4 down on left) and selecting an element, then while holding the [Shift] click and drag a point to 'round' it. For Inkscape I use a line thickness of 2.0 for body and 1.0 - 1.5 for details. BTW, just trying to help *;D

I appricate the effort for the one that does this avatar and give my thanks.





Archon-
You see an astonishingly attractive and striking human standing around six feet tall and around two-hundred pounds but just as lofty is an enormous buster sword wrapped in fabric that is tied to his back along with his Hewards Handy Haverdsack. Wearing Full-plate of the Phoenix and buckler with no helm you see a long black haired man with red eyes and tan skin. Most notably are his red eyes that share a warmth and noble prestige about them united with the looks of a nymph. Wearing with pride a wooden holy symbol of Moradin, Archon has taken up the talents of a Divine Oracle in his travels using both his powers in divinity and his strengths in combat together. Little is known that Archon Phoenixtear shares a heart with the phoenix itself.

I have an avatar request.

Lizardfolk fighter, Green Scales, Yellow Eyes, Sunsword in
one hand, Silver rapier in belt, Adamant Halfplate.

Lol, I might give it a whirl if I knew what a sunsword and Adamant Halfplate looked like *:-[

Edit: Exachix wrote
Ok, it's been at least 2 days, so here is my reqeust again.

Could I have an avatar for my character?

He's an Elven Rogue/Wizard, who dresses in a Red robe, with a hood. In fact, much like my current Avatar, only with a hood and possibly a dagger.

Could I have an update or check on this please?

Thank you!

My first attempt...

To repost my request:

I've been thinking about it and i would like to have a large man with short black hair, clean faced, wearing Godly Plate of the Whale (from diablo), sitting on a rock and reading a book, with his Dreamflange Mace leaning against him. Of course, feel free to do something else if you feel inclined.

To be honest, I've always pictured it green as well... despite the lack of description in the DMG.
Maybe you could make it all coolish, like a shiny silver/green.
As for the sunsword, picture a someone swinging a sword over their head to generate light. Yeah. Thats pretty much it, besides the 'killing evil people' thing.
Half-plate is pretty much just normal plateish type armor. The details don't matter so much.

Um I added something later that I forgot at first.

Mustache and thin pointy ghotee on chin

And could he just have his rapier up like he is ready to attack. The line in sand idea was cool, but not exactly what I had in mind. And nevermind the gloves they don't look as cool as I thought they would.

/me feels like he's being picky.

Page One has the list of avatar artists, most of the long standing ones even have portfolios of previous work that you can see... usually a link to a photobucket site. Should get you going in the right direction.

Edit: Lol, I went back to look at the request and realized I had started on that but still working it. Don't know when or IF I will get it done, it's giving me fits ~ so others, if you have the time keep at it *;)

Edit #2: Don't know if I have right image for right request... so discouraged with this one I don't know that it matters. I had all this cool shading for the armor and it wouldn't go to a GIF so just filled it all it.

Erm, Monty Python and the Holy Grail is rated PG, not much objectionable content in it, except for one S-bomb and a lot of cheesey blood.

He's basically a knight completely dressed in black armor, with a helmet like an upside-down black bucket with an eye-slit. He carries a longsword, but since both arms are cut off, he tries to kick King Arthur... anyway, just a guy dressed totally in black armor with an upside-down metal bucket on his head with no arms.

Nopt strictly relevant, but I greatly recommend that you try to convince your parents to let you see Holy Grail. It's nothing like Meanin gof Life, which I always consider to be the Pythons's excuse to get out all of the crude humor they don't use in any of their other movies.

Would one of you amazingly wonderful artists be willing to make me an avatar of my charrie?

Name: *Loren
Race: *Human
Class: *Druid
Hair: *Straw-blond, reaches to the bottom of her shoulder blades (she wears it down)
Equipment: *leather armor that looks like scale mail, a short sword, Xendrik boomerang (hers looks like three scimitar blades joined together, each with a harpoon-like barb at the tip), and a darkwood shield with a carving of a tree on it (Note: you don't have to draw her with all that equipment on. *Just draw however much of it you want to.)
Other: *Because of her prestige class, Loren's left hand is that of a deinonychus. *Loren also has an animal companion named Kivsith. *He's a tyrannosaurus, full-grown, with a pine green back and pale yellow-tan underside. *It would be very much appreciated if you could somehow work him into the same avatar as Loren.

By the way, if for whatever reason that isn't enough description, a far more complete description can be found at http://www.giantitp.com/cgi-bin/yabb/YaBB.pl?board=town;action=display;num=1154109815;s tart=105#105

Okay, so just recently I realized my avatar no longe represents the characters I play in DnD. I understand there are alot of posters that design avatars for other members, Chris the Pontifex and Ceika come to mind. And basically now I'm wondering if there is anyone with enough free time to create an avatar for me that fits my current rping needs. If you are interested or just feel like helping me out I'd appreciate it.

Here's just incase you need to know the basics of the avatar:
Race: Grey Elf
Hair: Silver
Clothes/effects: Anything that screams electricity (i.e. everything in my current avatar is sort of fire related, but I want my new avatar to be lightning related.)

Since my request for Samuel L. mutha****in' Jackson was ignored, and I've been getting really into one of my PbP games lately, I'd like to make a new request, this time of an actual character:

Gender: Male
Race: Half-Fiend Hobgoblin. Very Half-fiend: Bat wings, big claws, random stripes of black on his skin, the works.
Class: Blackguard.
Equipment: Breastplate (black), helmet (any style showing the face), greatsword sheathed on back; visible part of the blade should be black with a red glow, pommel should be suitably nasty-looking.
Pose: Standing there, weapon sheathed, with the traditional evil overlord maniac smile, if you know what I'm talking about.

Ceika ~ you rock! That is awesome. Wish I could accomplish that. Guess practice makes perfect. Would you mind sharing how you got armor to look like that? I mean did you do something special or was it just intricate squares or something? The armor makes it.


The armor (each part of it) was done in three layers, using a trick I just learned in Illustrator: creating swatches.

The first layer of the armor is the background color. The second is the detail, and the third layer is the border. It's one shape duplicated three times and aligned at the side and at the bottom. The detail layer is where I had some fun. I created a swatch in Illustrator that had the interlocking scales. I created it while viewing at about 200%, then shrank the pattern until I had the size scales I wanted in a (close to) perfect square (I used, then deleted, a square as a background to get the spacing as close as I could). Then I made it into a group which is what the swatch actually was made from. Then it's a matter of selecting the second layer of the armor and using my new swatch as the fill "color". I had to tewak the swatch several times before I got the scales the color that I wanted them. Help any?

This is very helpful. I am going to look into how to do this with Inkscape, if it can be done with it. I did see something in one of the programs; Inkscape or Gimp that had something to do with filling with swatches but when I tried it there were no options to chose from. I amagine I have to make a swatch first based on you discription. I will check it out tonight once I get back to my PC and programs :D

Just a note to everyone out there: The color black gets boring fast, especially in large quantities. Please pick something else. If something on your avatar has to be black, at least give us some other colors to work with. Thank you.
Now anyways, here is your avatar, with lots of said black.

Wow. Meaning of Life is possibly my favourite, and I'm reasonably certain I saw it before I was 10 - my parents wouldn't have let me go much longer without seeing it.

And, there's black, then there's black and then of course there's black. A glint here, sheen there, slightly different shade can make "all black" still come out reasonably interesting. And, of course, there's always blue-black, red-black, green-black, octarine-black, lilac-black...

Earin: very nice, thank you. And I guess I should have thought about the color-scheme more. It's just that black is always in style, you know? Especially for the unabashedly Evil.

As long as you're asking about tweeks, after looking at it, I think a scowl (or frown, to be more presice, since it's a stick figure) would be a better facial expression. Also, while I like the Orb of Evil there (or is that the beginning of a spell?), and appreciate the initiative in giveing him something to do with his hands, could I get a sceptre instead? I never got a description of it, but it's Graz'zt's Sceptre of Chaos if that gives you any inspiration.

If you have a copy of the MM, go to the elves section. There should be a subsection on gray elves with a short description of their appearance. Basically, they have slighty *more pale skin than normal elves and different hari colors. They are also slightly taller.

EDIT: (For Aeyamar) See my previous 'rant' about not having 3.5 books... but this should be enough to go by assuming feedback from you on corrections or changes. *;)

EDIT: I have a GREAT idea for your character and pose. This will be by far the hardest avatar that I have attempted. Please be patient with me. If I can pull this off I am sure you will be very pleased. *;D

Yes I did. I live in Louisiana where it is still legal to participate in the sport of chicken fighting. Its my passion *:)

EDIT: It is only legal in 3 states... LA, NM and AK though it does happen in most states. Interesting factoid, George Washington kept fighting chickens on the White House lawn.

Better, but didn't like it running out of frame...

Stage three, Final Stage?

Looking good IMHO. Like the hair color. I was going for a grayish/blue.

Pretty cool, but I'd say there were too many spikey things (namely the hair and lightning) at the top of the avatar. Maybe move some of them down to balance it out? Otherwise its looking good.

2006-08-24, 02:28 AM
I'm hoping that someone might make me an avatar or two... either "normal" ones or Sneak-doll ones would be fabulous.

Things that would apply to each:
Gender: female
Skin color: normal OOTS "peach" or whatever you want to call it
Hair length/color: medium-brown and very long, proportionate to the hair on my current avatar (that's the primary reason I selected this one), perhaps a stray lock of hair like Haley
Race: human
General disposition: cheerful

general concept #1
nature-type background (anything like trees, grass, vines, mountains, lakes, etc.)
wearing pants
perhaps a friendly animal or two (dogs, birds, deer... whatever seems apropriate)

general concept #2
no background
black/dark-grey clothing
wooden tools (things like a mallet, crescent wrench, knife), perhaps in a tool belt or in-hand(s)

Thanks so much!

Hello everyone,

I'm looking for a Rurouni Kenshin themed avatar to celebrate my recent 100th post, with two characters especially in mind: Myojin Yahiko, the young and very rude student of Kamiya Kasshin, and Seta Sojiro, the ever-smiling assassin.

Here are pictures of each for reference, though familiarity with the anime would be very helpful (or with the manga, in which case these will be helpful for the color scheme):

Yahiko

Congradulations and a cookie to anyone who can show Yahiko flying into the air on an Aioya wall, about to kick Henya's oh-so-fragile behind. *;D
Danke!

I've got a request.

Draknir Brough was my first character, and still very dear to my heart. He was a scrappy little dwarven monk, and he tried hard despite his subpar ability scores, which were 10 14 11 9 14 2 after racial modifiers. To compensate for his nigh non-existent charisma, we had him both badly burned and mute. He had tanned skin covered in terrible scars. His hair, what was left of it, was brown, as were his eyes. He communicated with others using scraps of paper measuring three inches by five, with notes, generally explaining just how one of the other members had just landed them in deep and terrible danger.

In one series of misadventures, he was brought down to one hit point by a hobgoblin fighter three levels above him (who was only defeated by luck and the provedence of the party's fighter and ranger finally deciding to check up on him), and then the party rogue set off an arrow trap. The arrow flew above the halfling's head, but was just low enough to hit Draknir. One cure minor spell later, and he was at 0 hit points, with an arrow sticking out of his forehead.

I will not relate the ultimate fate of this dwarf, for this is the state I wish him to remember him in. Battered, bruised, burned, and be-arrowed, but unbowed. It is for my signature and not my avatar, so feel free to add in any peril that seems appropriate.

The only problem I can see is the gun. It doesn't quite look right. My advice is make it smaller and make the handle larger where it connects to the barrel.

Other than that. That is one of the best avatar's I've seen on the boards. Keep up the good work Omen.

Ah. I see you are using that one method that inkscape gives you. You press ctrl+) or ctrl+( right? Such a nifty effect, good for adding depth and shadows. I haven't used it on any of my avatars yet, but with the success you had I think I'll try it.
V: Oh wow. Thats a lot more work to do it that way. I'll have to try mine out still.

I sent a reply but don't know where it went so this may show up as a double post unintentionally.

Thank you all for your kind words. It took me quite a while to do this one but I think it paid off.

I agree the gun is somewhat... unconventional/impractical but all the pics I had of this character showed it this way. I may take some artistic license and make another one with a more realistic gun (Well maybe not realistic ;D but with a 'stronger' grip)

I haven't been using InkScape long enough to know the key-shortcuts but shading was done by drawing it and setting line thickness to zero and lightening up the area.

Again, thanks for the responces.

But yeah...I'm going to do that distorty thing later, sometime that's not right now...

I honestly can't remember who made me my lovely Mr. Monopoly avatar to begin with, otherwise I'd ask them specifically. But if anyone has the time, it'd be nice if someone could redraw my current avatar as a ghost w/ some trailing chains - think Jacob Marley from A Christmas Carol. It's for the GITP Halloween party, so it's not time-critical in the least.

Awe Glyph, you stole my ghost idea. First thing I thought when I saw the thread. :P
Verra didn't make Mr. Monopoly? That's what I thought but I don't know either.

I'd like an avatar of ghosty Victorian style woman, long hair, loose and kind of messy. So, Google Images should help with the dress if you need it. I can't decide whether is would look better if she was stabbed with a dagger or holding her severed head in one hand. Whatever is easiest/most interesting/better looking to who ever takes this. I'd like her a slighty transparent light blue.
