The old thread got to be too long for people with slow modems, so here's a new one.

But first one request. Could this thread be kept OotS related? OotS style avatars, and fan art based on OotS, but not character sketches and random art from other things.

The last thread lasted for less than a month.

Guide to making Avatars (http://www.giantitp.com/cgi-bin/yabb/YaBB.pl?board=news;action=display;num=1115586717) Please check there before you post a question about how to make your own avatars. I'll let the artists post their request requirements and samples.

The other part (http://www.giantitp.com/cgi-bin/yabb/YaBB.pl?board=banter;action=display;num=1119405963 ;start=0#0).

I made a friendly banter version for all the non-OotS related art so that the people who don't do avatars don't feel left out. ;D

Sneak
2005-06-21, 10:08 PM
Okay. *For samples, I don't have a website or anything, but I do requests for people. *I made my own avatar, and the avatars for many others on these boards, though most of those were through PMs.

If you request something from me, these are the requirements/rules.

Anyone can get an avatar. *Anyone, unless there is a specific reason for me to not give them one.
If your request is very complicated, I may complete someone else's before yours. *However, I will hopefully get yours done very quickly.

Please include the following things in your request. *Things with Xs next to them are not required, but would be helpful.
Gender
Equipment
X Any other notable features (scars, tattoos, etc.)
X If their skin is a special color, add that
Hair color
Race
X Class
X Pose you would like your avatar to be in

EDIT: What Wukei said.

Wukei
2005-06-21, 10:12 PM
Also, for people that don't know, please PM requests to Sneak, Gorbash, or whoever so that requests don't completely fill up this thread. We like to keep it simple, and also they may not see your request if too many people post after you and they don't catch your post.

(Man, I'm being bossy...sorry...)

DarkCloud
2005-06-21, 10:32 PM
I actually like seeing the requests in the thread-

Lilly- just wondering, could you perhaps please put a link to the old thread and the predecessor thread to the old one in the first post- it would be useful for historical purposes?

and maybe put sneak's advice into your first post at the top?

thanks!

-DC.

(PS. By the way, i think it's great how you split the arts and crafts off from this thread!)

Resident Sodipodi help desk and Yet Another Avatar Artist, at your service. Gallery linked in my sig. I'd like to see the posting of free-for-all requests to continue, but since the tide of opinion is against me, please consider me when picking your artist to PM. :) (Wukei, I promise, I'm getting on it tonight!)

Pop Goes, sending a PM your way.

Brosmike
2005-06-22, 06:54 AM
Another avatar artist reporting in, and I'll help you with Inkscape, too :)

Just PM me with your avatar's description (please include gender, race, hair style/color, equipment, and pose/magic. If you don't include it, neither will I) and I'll try to get it done within a day and can pretty much guarantee within a week.

Examples are in the website in my sig.

You're free to edit or use them where and when you please, though I'm fine with making small changes after it's done.

Alright, I made a few, but they tend to look freakishly small. Any help with that? By the way, Peregrine, you were right.

I'm wondering whether I was responsible for either Salsar's dual-wielding worddaggers or Sneak's elite haxor blade with my Lol Archer wielding LOL arrows.

Sneak
2005-06-22, 03:33 PM
No, I don't think so, but you should ask SalSar. *I remember seeing in some thread a request from him that said that the swords would have the words stabbity death on them, and Peregrine just chose to do it in that style. *Mine is kind of a ripoff, but I liked the idea of the Simu-Ninja having blades that had names, like Spam, Simu-Post, 1337, etc., and I couldn't think of any way to show that the swords were named in the avatar besides that way. *I also thought of putting the words on top of actual blades, too...

Then King of Durf suggested that I do an "31i73 h4xor" blade, so I did. *And I liked it.

And Pop Goes the Banjulhu, those are cool!

2005-06-22, 10:37 PM

1st- Thanks Lilly for updating ths first post!

All this info might be useful to put in the first post.

If any info is wrong- please correct me. I apologize.

Hi all, making my avatar services availiable to all. If you want an avatar for me, standard rules apply, though for no I'm saying 15 post minimum. Too much? okay, only 10.

Some of my more recent examples can be found in this thread (http://www.giantitp.com/cgi-bin/yabb/YaBB.pl?board=comics;action=display;num=1117958993 ) (All OPEN. Otherwise, the only other recent one I've done is an evil DM for SuperRed:
http://members.optusnet.com.au/da_rat/pics/SuperRedS.gif
CLOSED

Every now and then I may post generic avatars. Feel free to use any avatar with the symbol "OPEN". Specific requests will have the symbol "CLOSED" on them. If I see anyone with a closed avatar who is not authorised to use it, I shall hunt you down and infest your place with drop bears.


I'm serious.

Sadly I don't do requests (long story why, nothing personal), but all avatars I make, except for the one I'm using for my avatar (girl with hat and green coat) are free for use als long als you PM me to let me know which one you'd like to use and store them on your own web space.

Wukei
2005-06-23, 08:34 AM
I'd like to state that I'm "collecting artists". *I'm looking to get an avatar from each one (that I have on my nice Ootsitar webpage. (http://www.angelfire.com/comics2/insomniacasylum/ootsitars.html)) *Of course, I trade my pictures for your ootsatars. *I might PM you, but if you'd like one of my pictures example (http://photobucket.com/albums/y262/Wukei/) and can create ootsatars, please PM me. *I'm more willing to get pictures done for people that do a service for me as well.

And Gorbash: *I'm looking for a way to scan that picture right now. *And though the LCD is broken on my scanning computer, I can hook it up to this monitor that I'm working on currently. *So, yay! You'll have Gwen soon. *(Though it may take a bit on the other...and you still need to give me your third character.)

I do characters in order that they were requested, guys, although I might make an exception if it's something simple (as Veera's was.) *Veera and I traded. And that's the reason I have Veeratars when she's retired, so will you people PLEASE stop asking. *

Any other retired members: if you request a picture from me, I am more than likely going to request an avatar from you, simply because that may be the ONLY way I'm gonna get it out of you. *;D

Remember all OotSatar artists: I don't care how new you are at the gig, you're still an OotSatar artist, and I want to collect.

And a question: does Rich still do the occasional request? *Maybe I can convince him to trade a picture of the OotS cast manga style for a Rich OotSatar?

Peregrine
2005-06-23, 08:38 AM
Sent you a PM, Wukei. Wish I'd seen this before doing it, or I wouldn't have copied the style of that previous avatar so closely. :) Still not too late, I guess.

Also, you might want to change the URL in your post; it's ootsitars.html, not ootsitar.html. ;)

Wukei
2005-06-23, 08:46 AM
That just proves that you visit it a lot. (Or checked my sig when you couldn't get to it.) ;D

Now everybody else better visit cuz Peregrine made me the cutest avvie to add to my collection!

the facial hair is just for effect anyway, he looked like a girly without, And this adds to the whole misterious ranger aragorn-type

Yay, more avatars ... and my link is updated, thanks to all, and please...keep them coming! ;D I would ask people to tell me if they're making a specific avatar, though, so that I can tell someone you're making it so that they don't have to make the same thing if they ask what I need.

I'm looking for a couple of my star wars characters, currently...I'm deciding if I need to pm people or if they'll keep PMing me....I'm glad you guys love me so much :-*

I am ownzing this thread, even if I can't post my own pictures in it, YES! Every other avatar is a wukeitar. Really, that's about what she looks like, stickified, I'm sure. It's very nice SJ.

It's true.

Anyway, I've been playing this really cool game N (http://www.harveycartel.org/metanet/n.html) a lot, and I decided to draw the main character, who is an unnamed ninja. *He is already a stick figure, but so what. *One of them is based on this screenshot (http://www.harveycartel.org/metanet/n_screenshots/n-22.jpg).

http://img217.echo.cx/img217/3199/ninjafalling9yu.gifhttp://img217.echo.cx/img217/8449/njumping6jb.gif

Man, that game is so fun...I'm addicted! *And it's also cool when you die, although it is very bloody. *But it's not really gorey, it's just a stick figure.

EDIT: I would also like to know what the Solar System maker/tool thingy in AI is good for. I'm talking about the one next to the star, circle, and square tools. this (http://img69.echo.cx/img69/8357/solarsystem0km.gif) is what I made with it by just clicking and pressing Okay.

Sneak! You play N? :D None of my high scores (http://www.harveycartel.org/metanet/n/data13/n_highscores_u.php?name=Peregrine) are current, but hey.

And as for the art, this (http://users.bigpond.com/keretija/images/oots_getwell_01.png) is on the occasion of Rich's injured hand.

Edit: Answering Wukei here to avoid needless extra posts: Actually, I'm reasonably sure I'm safely into the grey area of fair use with this. If Rich asks us not to draw fan art using his characters, I'll take it down, but so far he's only insisted that people not alter his work, and I drew that myself from scratch.

Wukei

It's probably derivative work (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Derivative_work) which is rather poorly defined. Here's an FAQ (http://chillingeffects.org/derivative/faq.cgi#QID380) on the subject.

Chris the Pontifex
2005-06-25, 02:14 PM
even if it IS copy paste, so what?
even if it'd fall under the gaints "dont change" rules i wouldnt think he'd have any problems with it.
i dont think that even if you'd take a comic and only altered the tekst, he'd even consider not appreciating it.

I think its a nice gesture, to make someone feel a lot better.

why are we even having this discussion?

just for the record, i think its "comic delayed"-comic worthy

Sneak
2005-06-25, 02:19 PM
Cthulhu Chris, I don't think you're correct. *I think if you just copied and pasted a comic, he would appreciate it (if it was a get well comic), but would tell you to delete it, or delete it himself, and not to do it again, or something like that.

He would appreciate the gesture, but cannot allow it, else there will be tons of blockheads who will alter his work and say: “But [insert name] was allowed to!” When protecting your work and efforts you have to be strict.

I'm sorry, I didn't mean to make it sound like I was yelling, in fact, I liked it very much.

DarkCloud

Great work Peregrine!

As a guest comic art for the Giant, I don't see why he would object- if you started doing a series using his characgters though, that would be an actual copyright violation... as would copy-pasting instead of originally creating.

see- as this states:
Question: Can I take a character from a movie, like Chewbacca from Star Wars, and use it in a play with a very different plot and otherwise different characters?

Answer: Probably not. The people who hold copyright in Star Wars own the characters as well as the plot, the filmed images, etc. Placing a distinctive fictional character in a different context or medium is still copying that character, and therefore infringement. However, if you use the character for the purposes of parody or criticism you might be making a legitimate fair use of the character. Note that in one case involving Walt Disney, Inc. and a comic book publisher, the comic book publisher argued that his use of the images of Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse and Donald Duck was satirical, and therefore fair use. The Ninth Circuit rejected the fair use argument, reasoning that the comic book took more of the images than was necessary to suggest the characters in the minds of the readers and therefore exceed the bounds of fair use. See Walt Disney Productions v. Air Pirates, 581 F. 2d 751 (9th Cir. 1978).


It might be a derivative work- but Rick's characters are, like Chewbacca, not in the public domain- whatever Peregrine did that was in his own style (with changes)- like the plot, and the slightly different representation of Durkon and Rich, could be consdiered 'Peregrines' work' as could his base models- however the characters are copyrighted to Rich- use of the characters would only be allowed contingent on Rich's Okay- as fan art though, I see no reason why Rich would object.

---
Honestly, those pieces of artwork looked great! You should PM him or email him the piece so that he can upload it on the filler page- or use it as a 'sick day' thread ;)

How long did it take you to manufacture that Peregrine?

Sneak

Wukei's 1000th Post!!!

I did a picture that insisted on being my thousandth post. *This is 1 of a set of 3.

http://i7.photobucket.com/albums/y262/Wukei/oots01.jpg

Edit: does the elf look either male or female? I tried really hard to make it look both effiminate and masculine.

Poeir
2005-06-25, 07:10 PM
The elf looks distinctly female, because of the curvature. What you'd want to do to fix this would be to draw a straight line from the edge of the widest part of the chest to the outermost hips, and give the elf wide hips for a male and narrow hips for a female.

Wukei
2005-06-25, 07:13 PM
Actually, that's part of the point with it..I wanted to give Vaarsuvius partially male qualities, and partially female. The slender build with the hip thing was part of the female qualities.

2005-06-25, 07:27 PM

A: Haley's top isn't that skimpy, and

Heh, I would have said that the face and pose were the female qualities and the curvature were the.. also female qualities?

Maybe widen the hips a bit for a more square build to get androgynity index to increase slightly?

Wukei
2005-06-26, 10:06 AM
All right, first of all, you guys need to lay off, okay... I don't take criticism well, and all of you guys are the ones that keep saying V is female, so what are you complaining about.

V looks male to me in that picture, maybe it's just because I know how I draw females and that's not it. And yes, he does have a few traits that make him look female, but if you look, none of my characters have bodies where there's no curviture to the body at all.

And pumpkinetics, I haven't noticed any hair, but maybe that's just me.

Muisje
2005-06-26, 10:11 AM
Wukei, I think V looks a bit like of a mix between a girlish boy and a tomboy girl in your picture. ;)

[edit] That was the wrong smiley. :-[

Wukei

[edit] Belkar does have some hair, although it's hard to see most of the time. example (http://www.giantitp.com/ootsChars.html)
Other people have to keep reminding me Belkar has hair. :P

Peregrine
2005-06-26, 10:37 AM
Well, I certainly like it. The little details, I put down to style. (I mean, if Elan is male, and in your manga-esque style he is, then Vaarsuvius definitely has male features.) They're all identifiable, and the only one I can say doesn't look right to me is Belkar, not V. It's probably because Rich's halflings are quite stocky (a side effect of basically being full-sized people cut in half ;)).

Wukei
2005-06-26, 10:39 AM
He didn't look right to me, either, and for the same reasons. However, I know Belkar is not fat, so that ruled out maybe making him chunkier. I hate halflings...really I do...gnomes are easier than halflings.

zeorge
2005-06-26, 10:46 AM
Wukei - I think you did an awesome job, but you're never going to get it "perfect" because everyone has different views of OOTS and how they should look. People are just commenting on how THEY think it should look, but that is really just opinion when it comes down to it.

Again - great job.

Oki-dookie.

Last thread you were soliciting for critique and comments so I just assumed this was still valid.

And my 'comment' was about how I found your rendition less androgynous than it could be, not a complaint per se, only an attempt to comply with the assumption made in my previous paragraph.

Personally Wukei, I think it looks great. I think V looks a bit effeminine, but its hard to draw a strictly non-gendered character( I couldn't do it). And also belkar has hair....just not that much. But ya still great job (Ok, done feeding your ego)

And Ego Slayer....I shall inflate your ego by saying that I think it looks very good....especially compared to my craptactcular attempts at OotS style, which I dare not show on the site.

I did a guest comic, and for one frame I described it in my notes, before drawing it or knowing what it would be, as "Crazy Elan Fantasy."

LadyGlutter
2005-06-28, 01:12 PM
Okay, guys, I'll commission one each for those of you who are bored:

Annex: *I think Erin requires an intensity that you show. *

I know you won't need all these details, but I'll give them anyway.

Erin, female human. *Long black hair, straight. *Blue eyes. *Extremely beautiful and highly fit. *Carries two glock 17s, has a broadsword on her back. *You have your choice of outfits to draw for her: *1) chainmail head to toe or 2)blue jeans, combat boots, and a black tanktop. *Also, strapped to her leg is a plain polished brown wooden stick, about as long as her thigh. *That's the most important thing, to have Stick on her person, if you leave out any detail at all, don't leave him out. If you have to, she can be carrying him (yes him, yes, his name is Stick) instead of the guns in her hands. *The weapons can be left off if you need to.*She's basically a paladin type, very emotionally charged character, and she's usually got that "come mess with me, I dare ya" look.

Sneak, you get your pick, these one seems more your type:

Farina Loudhammer, dwarven female. *Red curly hair that's usually in braids. *She wears full mithral platemail. *A plain helm, no horns!!!! *Her primary weapons are two battle axes, each with a blade on one end, a back spike and a top spike. *She's very curvy, but you probably can't tell because of the platemail. *Known as the "Cuisinart". *Kind of Mama-bear personality, very nice and sweet, takes care of her own, but you don't want to make her mad or mess with her family.

OR

If you would rather

Bofala Glutterstarfinkel, female gnome illusionist. *She has white hair, kind of "Albert Einstein" looking. She's fairly tan. *She wears a seven layered skirt, each a bright color. *She has a squirrel familiar. *Friendly, always wearing a big smile and ready to help! *Very smart, kind of absentminded. *Probably creating some fireworks or other cantrip to amuse herself.

AWESOME! *I especially like Yikyik and Zz'dtri. *But you know, Zz'dtri isn't necessarily male, he's just like Vaarsuvius. *And Thog looks so innocent. *It would be funny if he had a thought bubble that said...you know what. *Pretty cool.

EDIT: And no, don't change Yikyik, he looks better that way! He looks like a cute little animal! Like my cats, only...not!

Wukei
2005-06-28, 09:05 PM
I searched for 2 hours for a decent picture of a kobold and ended up with something very similar to that one there. **shrug* I'd never seen a kobold. *And stick figures are hard to judge from.

Edit: To Sneak:

Zz'dtri is my favourite. I was worried about how he'd turn out since I had to AVOID the lines and colour everything around them.

Thog, actually, has captured my attention. I plan to draw him sitting indian style playing with a puppy.

However, I only have the names of 2 people who have made a request.
If you are not Immoleth Magthere or Nixie, you need to re-PM me your request, or at least the name of your character so that I know that I have you on here.
Requests that have names of those that have requested take priority, thus IM and Nixie have priority currently.


I'm sorry, guys, I know that I've made a mess of the PM system. I have all requests writeen in Word and saved, but I can still get confused.

Here are the descriptions I have of characters, but do not have the name of the person that requested them:
Ifrit
Chilar and Kyrdos
Xanthor (I believe this would be a Bingo Bob, but I need confirmation)
Manave


And PLEASE spell things correctly, guys. I have a thing for grammatical correction, and I spend twenty minutes correcting your request that could be spent on drawing your request.

Sweet! *I only have one request for you to change... Stick should be smaller. He's actually not a weapon. *(I've tried to use him as one, he's such a baby!) *Just make him about half that long, but don't change anything else, she's beautiful. *

That was the only question I had..so heres the new one

:) Thanks, BTW great job with Erin, Annex...
*Nothing new...

For all bored avatar makers, here's a challenge:
-Female
-Half-Dragon (Silver or Gold)
-Sorceress
-Wields magic in her left hand and a dagger in the other
-Wears boots of speed
-Wears a cloak, but doesn't cover her front

Annex

I've been having a hard time with half-dragons lately... but Ill try...

::sigh::

Sneak
2005-06-29, 03:15 PM
Wukei, Manave would probably be Manave E Sulanul. I made an avatar for him.

Wukei
2005-06-29, 03:20 PM
Thanks for your help, Sneak.

Here's the order I have you guys in right now:

Bingo Bob (due to a rush from his end, that I'll accept)
Immoleth
Nixie
Manave
McMouse


Sometimes I don't go in order when I'm completely unable to get a character correct. So this order might change slightly. I will PM you with a link to the character once I am done, so please don't PM and ask if it's finished yet.

Nixie
2005-06-29, 03:34 PM
It doesn't have to be half-reptilian, just wings and claw, if you'd like :)

Annex
2005-06-29, 03:42 PM
Of course, my luck, reading that after I finished, but I can just do wings and claws easily if you dont like this one :)

2005-06-29, 03:56 PM
Heh. When I say 'base' I am referring to the white background that is there when you open the program. There is probably a way to change it tp pure white, but putting a block of pure white down is easier.

Um... since I have white in the shot, I put a solid light grey for the background....

Nixie
2005-06-29, 04:21 PM
lol, how about both, ;) then I can decide...

Drizzt_Fanboy_74
2005-06-29, 04:52 PM

That works. Presumably, you are using IrfanView. If you are, just make that grey the transparent color when you go to save as a GIF.

Melange

Anyway...

I apologize to all of those who are wating for avatars from me. I've been procrastinating, but hopefully I will get mostly everything or everything done in a few days. Thanks for your patience!

Also, I will do simpler requests before more complicated requests, even if they're not in chronological order.

I saw someone ask for a General Grievous avatar and thought - hey, why not?

As always, it looks a lot better in vector form – I dream of a day when I can have alpha-transperant pngs for avatars, with maybe an extra 50-100 pixels or so. Maybe even that animated png format so they can move about... *drool*
Ahem. anyway, here it is.

I got some requests from you Gorbash, seeing as how your a website staff, and an avatar maker,
A: Could you make me an Orc (green) With a black ponytail, and a wide brimmed hat, except the hat isn't pointy, kinda fishing like. He is wearing a chainmail shirt and trousers, and sandals, plus if you have him equipped with a paper and pen taking notes that'd be great ;D
B: does this forum let you have animated avatars?
C: (For anyone to answer) how do you make them?

Melange
2005-07-01, 02:05 AM
Pre-A) You may want to change the from to a for...
C) You'd need a gif animator... I believe IrfanView can do it (and be free 'bout it)

Edit:

Note: IrfanView can't save animated GIFs
So nevermind that

2005-07-01, 07:54 PM
I've made a couple of animated GIFs using the GIMP (one's in my gallery). The trick is to make each frame a layer, then name them as follows:

<some name for the frame> (delay) (frame disposal)

Delay is given as a number of milliseconds. Frame disposal is either replace (the next frame overwrites the last one entirely) or combine (each frame is painted onto the last one, so transparent areas show the old image).

Thus you might have five layers...
BaseImage (1000ms) (replace)
NextFrame (1000ms) (replace)
Frame3 (1000ms) (replace)
Frame4 (1000ms) (replace)
LastFrame (2000ms) (replace)

Note that you don't have to include these instructions; when you go to Save As... a GIF, once you specify that you want an animation rather than merged layers, it will ask you for a default delay and disposal method where unspecified, so if all your frames use the same values, you can just set them there.

Also make use of the Optimize (for GIF) and Playback options under Filters -> Animation, to shrink and preview your animation, before saving.

Here we go. I never knew how many different versions of the monopoly fellow there was before this...

http://mercury.walagata.com/w/nemglan/monopoly.gif

Oh, and what colours do people use for the skin? I always seem to pick ones which are too grey, or too pink.

Sneak
2005-07-02, 11:44 AM
That looks really cool, Nemglan!

And about the skin color, I usually use a lighter version of Bisque, or just Bisque if they're tan. If they're pale or have pinkish skin, I just use the sliders on Bisque, so that's pretty much my starting skin color for everything, except for drow skin and stuff like that. But to me, that skin color on the monopoly fellow looks fine.

No, I don't think I could do that, because I use Adobe Illustrator, and it wouldn't work in that. I could only do it if I had the .ai file of the avatar, and you didn't make it in AI. But if you made a few other pictures with the control and/or the hand and made them move position every time, then I could do it. Sorry.

Just because it's MS Paint does not mean the bg has to be white. Explore a little! (I sorta like the purple bg on my Grim...though I'm not much of a fan of the way Grim turned out..)

If you want to take a look at the example I did on Grim from Life for Death (http://www.angelfire.com/comics2/life-for-death/index.html) just go to my Ootsatars (http://www.angelfire.com/comics2/insomniacasylum/ootsitars.html) page.

Oh well, at least OOTS is back again.

Here's one of the two special things I sent to him (other will be posted later).

The image was shrunk by photobucket's limit on image size- if someone has a better host- I'll email it to them if they'll post it here...

It's too small to read.

And don't feel too bad. It was quite impossible for him to get to every single person that has sent him fan art. He really should have a "fan art" button over to the side with everything he's been given. But that might be too much, too.

DarkCloud
2005-07-04, 11:15 AM
As I was saying- it was shrunk by photobucket- photobucket (the file hosting service which it is under) RESIZED it. I can't do anything about that!

JPG is still too big. It's 338kb JPEG and 348kb PNG and 341kb GIF.

Cut it in half yourself, it should still be large enough to read.

In other news:

Who have I requested an avatar from that still hasn't given it to me? I know I requested Sudeimann of someone and haven't gotten him yet.... Just curious...

It's going to be my personal one, but if I ever change, it goes public meaning any random passerby can take it for themselves.

And if anyone was wondering, no it does not represent who I am in real life. In fact it's quite different from who I am in real life. There are some similarities but mostly it just looks cool so that's why I'm using it.

I don't think I could make an accurate representation of myself if I tried. And yes, I have tried. I've also done one for other people, one which was okay/pretty successful, the other which didn't look like that person at all.

JPEG the answer to everything? Umm... no. JPEG is designed for photos. (The P stands for 'photographic'.) JPEG is a lossy image compression format designed for images with lots of colour gradients. It performs badly and produces lots of distortion on images with sharp outlines and solid colours.

Stick figures, in other words. :P

So, if you're compressing photos, use JPEG. If you're compressing something like Wukei's black-and-white drawings (which I assume are scanned), you could probably go either way. If you're compressing stick figures, icons, or basically anything derived from vector drawing programs, use PNG or GIF.

(PNG is also useful for other things, like archival-quality photo compression, but let's not go into that. :))

For imagehosting that can support big (size wise) files, go toImageshack. (http://imageshack.us/)

You think I could draw like that on the computer? Psshh... have you SEEN Grim OotS style?

BTW, Peri...do you have a website I should link the picture back to on my fan art page?

Anyway, I'd like to direct everyone here (http://www.giantitp.com/cgi-bin/yabb/YaBB.pl?board=comics;action=display;num=1120516775 ), a comic that I am just starting called Simu-Ninja. The banner in my sig also takes you there.

Hey!
Well I'm a lurker here on the boards, but read the comic since the earlier comics. (Posting isn't my thing *::) ) Any who, I always wanted to know how much time, patience, and skill it takes to make all these little stick figures so today I decided to make my own stick figure.

It took me like 4 hours just to do this picture and by doing this I have to give Rich credit on making such an excellent comic. I mean these little things are hard to do! Sorry for it being a little big. I tried shrinking it on Illustrator, but if I tried any smaller it lost alot of quality for some reason.

Well basically I would like to know some critique from you all so I can have an idea on how to make my pictures better. Hope you like it!

Good avatar, SacredStorm!

By the way, the red mage avatar I posted earlier (http://www.giantitp.com/cgi-bin/yabb/YaBB.pl?board=comics;action=display;num=1119405459 ;start=41#41) is now public. Any random passerby is allowed to take it.

He should either be reading a book or have the book slung over his shoulder and have a demon by his side. If you can do it.

I finally worked out the size stuff for my pictures now they can finally become avatars! Well heres my second one I made...I like what I did with his spell thing. I guess I'll use this as an avatar! ^_^

Tell me what you think!

*Edit* by the way SacredStorm, your avatar is great. :)

I use Deviantart, but I thought you all could see them since Adghar commented on it lol. Well I guess I'll switch to photobucket that seems to be the one used around here am I wrong?

(Time to edit woopie!)

In my example, replace the { with [

{img}http://img301.imageshack.us/my.php?image=avatar8hp.jpg{/img}

But in yours, cuz you use imageshack, it's a bit more complicated. When you go to view your picture, do you see how you see more than the picture? There's a link below it that says "get links." Click on that. On the new page that opened, scroll down and look for the "direct link" to the image that looks like this: http://img301.imageshack.us/img301/4905/avatar8hp.jpg

Do you see how in mine it doesn't have "?image=avatar" ? That's how I know it's a good link. And now, using my code above but replacing the URL with the new one I get this:

{img}http://img301.imageshack.us/img301/4905/avatar8hp.jpg{/img}

Like so:

http://img301.imageshack.us/img301/4905/avatar8hp.jpg


The other thing you will want to do is crop or resize the picture to make it 117 pixels by 117 pixels.

Good job so far!!

Actually I used a program called PrintShop, it basically came with the computer. I was sending some fan art to Wukei's comic, Life for Death (theres my shameless plug), and found that it also had this nifty little drawing program, so woo for my first (albeit pathetic) attempt at an avatar.

Well...My friend made a deal with me if I made an awesome stick figure of her she'd give me an awesome birthday gift, but it took me like all night to make it and she's not on anymore. ::)

So what do you think? It's my first shot at trying a girl (well it's only my 3rd picture o well lol) any ways tell me what to think. Oh and by the way anyone have any solid tips on making the curves easier to draw on illustrator cause so far i have to pretty much free hand most of them.

http://i10.photobucket.com/albums/a147/SacredStorm/LAURIE.gif

Like my first one I made this one big because I'm not planning on using it as an avatar. So to save space I'll use the hyperlink!

So tell me what you guys think!
-Sam

PS. Don't forget to expand the picture if you have to it makes the quality better.

Sneak
2005-07-06, 07:03 AM
That's good! I think your avatars lose some quality when you make them smaller, unfortunately.

SacredStorm
2005-07-06, 09:09 AM
Yeah that does seem to be a problem...My thought was when I do make a smaller one I should maybe use thicker lines? Another thouht was that I didn't put as much effort on my smaller one. Reason being that I just wanted to rush so I can see if it could fit as an avatar instead of being...big lol. ::)

Well I guess I'll try a smaller one later today or maybe two...just to see if I can improve the quality of them!
Adios!

Since the game that Garon (my ranger avatar) is from seems to be dying, I am switching to Aodhan from my other PBP game here.

He doesn't acutally dual-wield, but what the heck?

EDIT: Image improved and replaced.

2005-07-06, 11:48 PM
Well I'm back...Apparently I was to do another one for my other friend...don't ask why she wanted it ::) anyways what I'm looking for is some critique on this one. Anything you can suggest to make any of the pics better? Once I get all this stuff down maybe I'll start trying avatars! ;D
