Halloo?

Hey guys! How are you all doing?

So... I had this really weird dream about Trump and made a thread on it, then decided to create this avatar because it was such a strange and realistic dream. Fun times in my mind, mannnnn... Seriously.

So just dawned on me that my banner leads to the old forum.

Is that an easy fix with what I have pasted in my sig area?

im glad you like it.


I tried to make it using the same concept I had used in the other one (2 colors on a diagonal gradient, 2d shadows, etc).

In your account settings, just put the URL for page 1 of this thread in place of the URL for the old thread. When you look at what is in there, you see 2 URLs: one ending with ".com", and the other with ".png" (or .jpg, etc). Replace the one ending in ".com"

Seriously digging this new avi btw, fantastic job.

Hey there.

Looking for some help to convert this to my custom background. I already have the "blank" avatar ready, as instructed on page 1.

What I'm looking for are 2 images I can use, depending on mood.

Both involve my main avatar, this guy-



Image 1 background involves him being a golfer, holding a driver on a tee box.

Image 2 background involves him going crazy on the surface of Mars, shooting an AR15 at the Mars field mouse anamoly.

Thanks for all your help.

Volunteering Photoshop services. Specifically, this style of things.



I'm someone who works with renders, though. I do not expect what I'm capable of doing to be particularly useful here, but occasionally someone who wants this sort of thing may show up. In other words, I can't make things from scratch so I won't be able to help with requests such as the one directly above this post.

Welcome to the team


Maybe Zarni will finally release me from night shift all time zones, the good coffee is hidden behind the mods' microwave
Our microwave is somewhat less inviting.



But we deal

Thank you. That is an incredibly horrific looking microwave.

Don't expect anything particularly amazing from me at first though, since I'm a biiiit rusty. ^_^
And I'm pretty bad at working with things that aren't renders (assuming everyone knows what they are.) Though this may be a chance to practice...

you want that exact alien image doing the things you describe? Or an alien in general (that looks similar to that) doing those things?

By "renders" do you mean line drawings?

No, while the term is the same, in the GFX community "render" essentially refers to an image (often a character) that has been sliced out of its accompanying background.

For example, this image.



Started out using this.
This is the crux, the focal point. It is the thing around which the entire composition will be based. The quality of a render and your ability to work with it will make or break the final product. One that is blurry, or too flat, or (in the worst case) pixelated, will ultimately make creating an aesthetically pleasing composition extremely difficult. (Though possible.)



As you can see, everything but the girl has been sliced away, leaving it transparent. I take such a render, then, using a variety of techniques and resources (smudging, C4Ds, gradient maps, selective blurring and sharpening, perspective warping, overlay layers, stock images, textures, brushes etc. etc. etc.) create a final piece such as what you see above.

By the way, sorry if the images are somewhat large. Normally I spoiler such things, but ATS does not to my knowledge have a spoiler function.

That particular piece is a composite of roughly thirty layers, and is my most recent creation. It was my first concerted effort to create a lot of depth.
here is an early, working version.


(The collapsing column was later removed due to color clash. Unfortunately, while I very much like the effect it produced, I could not correct its color to one that fit the overall creation.)
