I Love making Avatars
« on: 10 May 2005, 10:27 »

Yup.  I do.

<--------- I made this one from a Guild Wars screenshot last night... took about 7 minutes.

I have a few other things I can show off:

I made this one about 2 years ago, with photoshop and a free Gif Animator program I had.  I could do better if I tried it now.



I drew this from scratch, and used WAY too many filters on it, in photoshop.  I have another version I'm working on, where I'm not using ANY filters, but it's a slow side-project.  Filtered version:
clicky
(not an avatar, I know... breaking my own rules here)


Upon further inspection, that's really all I have on my webspace that I'm happy with.

But... the point of this thread;

If anyone wants me to make them an avatar, from scratch, or out of an existing image, I'd be happy to do it.  I have trouble finding good ideas, but when given a good idea I tend to bring it to light quite nicely.

So, PM me, or post in here... and I'll see what I can do.

I'm pretty avatarless, but I don't have any ideas as to what you could make.

You need one that says "I'm the Jabberwoky without all the talk." Or something to that effect.

I hope Fortebass doesn't mind.

He asked me to do an avatar for him, based on a picture of him, so I did this;



Obviously not in 'avatar size'.

It may still undergo changes before all parties are finally happy with it.

I just figured I'd post it, since this is the artsy-fartsy forum.

Crop, resize, save as, upload. Thankyouverymuch.

Should probably try harder, but effort it bas and usually I just use Ethan from CAD seeing as I have a reputation for being an insane drunkard, thought it a bit rude to use another comics character here though, hence the Foos thing.

I most certainly will draw your avatar!

Thanks for all the compliments, guys!  Sorry I didn't check back on this thread sooner.

Heh, no I didn't get it.

I've been negligent in my 'checking of the private messages'.  There were actually a few avatar requests in there... they were like a week old too!

Ooops!

*smiles*

I have a few other avatar requests, and I will be doing them this week (sorry if I renegged on promises of having them done sooner... life got busy).

I wanted to work on some last night, but instead I watched 'Unleashed' with a friend (great movie) and spent 4 hours working on my webcomic for today (it's our 50th comic!  WOOT!)
