1 Damien Darkside's Thread on Fri Jun 11, 2010 11:36 pm

Yeah, so here is my thread of quick sketches and the like.

I am more of a Photoshop signature/avatar maker, so I might make a thread about that too. Maybe if we actually get people using signatures we can do it!

Anyways, here is a few sketches:



-That one was a quick one I drew when I saw the thread. Ten minutes max I think. I like how it turned out. Something reminded me of the pose so I drew it.



- Damien Aaron Parker the Hunter from my L4D story "Evolution". I'll post a link at the end if anybody wants to take a gander.



- Jessica Miskovsky the Witch from "Evolution". She doesn't actually have wings but since Damien regards her as his guardian angel, I thought it fit.

It's pretty simple, that was off of a few brushes I have and a cool font I downloaded, I do make avatars and the like, I wouldn't mind giving you a watermark thing. Tell me what you'd like.

I suck at faces, let alone half-infected ones.

You seem like a good source for signature related questions...

What do you think of this signatures I made for a other forum?


and this one

If the corners are transparent (you can't tell on a white forum) then you did a pretty good job. Oh wait, I think I see grey corners, yeah I see grey corners. Saving as a .gif and making sure that the transparency button is clicked will make that signature have an actual rounded corner, though I think the grey might have been placed there when you did the layer effects.

With a signature with low amounts of colours such as the Che one, you can lower file size, keep transparency and make it look better, not everything has to stay .png. Now being in Photoshop, I can notice the corners easily, other won't, and probably wouldn't unless they see this. This is probably the reason why I don't used curved corner signatures, since it usually restricts you to .gif if you want the corners to actually blend with the forum itself, which conflicts with colours on something over 255.

Apart from that, looking closely, the flag has pixellated jagged curve lines, though that might just be the original file since your font isn't jagged. layer blands might fix that but I wouldn't worry about it. Overall really well done.

Here is one I did for a friend:

And an animooted one

Damien, would you please make me a signature? If so, I would like it to say "Melfire", not Bedaorlisear.

Gif, got it. It's dark in the corners because I just noticed it Razz The forum I'm on has a black theme so I didn't notice it then. Still trying to make it an animated gif though. I have 3 of those sigs that I want to rotate every few seconds...

To animate I use an older form of Photoshop since I don't know how to animate on CS2 ;-;



Here ya go! Decided to play around with the font a little and got a little carried away!

I was told that by just making different layers and saving it as a gif it would automatically make it an animated gif. Guess I heard wrong.

Well, maybe not automatically, but almost Very Happy.

In GIMP, that is, if you do that, you'll have an animated gif.

Google GIMP animated gif if you're interested.

On elements you have to click an "animated" box. Raises the size like a sonovaB.

mmm... I'm growing tired of Jack Parow. I need a new avatar. Preferably with Jack Parow in it...


Oh hey Damien! Didn't see you there. Say, could you help me maybe? Could you maybe make a draft avatar for me? Otherwise I'm doomed! Doomed to see the same face and lyrics for the rest of my life... on this forum!

So you want just a quick Jack Parow for you to toss lyrics onto? I can do that easily.

Isn't that a bit... big? Crop away the left side and it should suffice Razz Was expecting something with flames or explosions though xD

Lol 200x200 is the pixel dimensions for the forum right? I'mm make a new avatar, but unless you want something really specific, you will get whatever my Photoshop cranks out. Not that it's a bad thing, just might not be what you want.

As for Nikolai, here is my version of your symbol:



That is, unless you want it completely basic.

Thanks Damien, didn;t want to seem ungrateful Wink just about the same dimension as mine, but maybe if you really can, try and spice it up a bit Smile flames, explosions, pink. All those will do xD
Also, nice, very nice watermark you made for Nikolai.
