Welcome to the workshop's custom avatar thread, here you can have avatars made for you to your own design / spec. But first I want to explain a
little about what "The Avatar Workshop" is and the idea behind it.
Well the workshop is designed for the ATS member...er.. you. Not only will you be able to choose avatars from the workshop itself but also have
avatars made for you. (in this thread) Plus also you will be able to make your own avatars too. (Thats the workshop bit lol)
The workshop is located on our new media site:
ATS media site
please join in, post videos, photos, etc you can log in with your ATS username /
The Avatar Workshop
is the link to my profile and the workshop's home page. On here you
will be able to access all the art work (avatars, signatures, etc). By pressing the my pictures button it will give you access to all the folders.
If you see something you like then please just take it (you dont have to ask) click on the image to expand it, then right click, press the properties
button, then copy the url and take it to your account settings on ATS and paste it in the avatar space. Thats it.
If you want any of these avatars customised then bring the image here to this thread and i can add your name, logo, etc.
The next thread will cover the workshop side of things and will offer tutorials, help, advice on creating your own avatars. Again this will be linked
via the new media site. This will be a place where everyone can give input, thoughts and ideas and answer questions. The software we will be using is
photoplus 6 by serif (its free, just google it).
Disclaimer: Im not an expert in the use of this software, nor do i work for the software company. Everything i know is self taught and I do this for
fun only. Plus this is not photoshop, which means the software will have its limitations.
So, thats the idea behind the workshop, its a big project and will take a bit of time to get going but it should be fun. The next thread will launch
in a couple of weeks or sooner.
Ok, back to this thread...
If you would like an avatar made for you, then please post as much info about the image / design you would like, also if you have any images you would
like me to work with, then please upload them to this thread. If you would like your avatar blended into your background then please tell me your
background colour code, it just saves time (I know the code for black lol) I dont do any animation work. sorry. (just takes to long)
We are very lucky to have some great artists here on ATS, so please make sure you check out their work as well:
and Im a
, who is the person that got me into this in the first place.
Ok, i will stop rambling now. I will upload some work for you to look at in the next post.
