I can travel up to mach 9.6. I am being modified and tested today and will serve the human beings of tomorrow. And I can be your best ATS buddy if you make me an avatar!


The reason I am requesting a new avatar is:

1) I hear they're changing the limits on avatar sizes (240x170?)
2) I'm ok with graphics softwares but not nearly as good as some folks here on ATS.

Check out my current avatar (designed by GEL) to give you an idea for what I'm looking for.

Post any questions or designs in this thread.

Thanks so much, SJ76

Heres your avatar resized to work as a background avatar, you can use it as a temp until a new one comes along.

Heres the background:



Background code: /member/99c3049fba36.png

You will need a blank avatar 240 x 170.

Blank code: hxxp://files.abovetopsecret.com/images/member/bf02e0667441.gif

change the xx in hxxp for tt

I will have a look at something new for you, but you may not like my style of work.. could be easier to ask GEL for a new avy.


Edit to add: flipping resizing is a major pain in the .....

Ignore the background code above, try this one /member/56446edc0bca.png its the best I can do.

Nice! I also like your avatar! Very minimal!

I would have shrunk it myself but it distorts the image too much. Those background planets are looking pretty scrunched...


In general, thank for the replies though guys. I agree it's hard to match GEL's work, but I thought I'd give others a try. Especially considering she now has other duties to attend to than just avatars.

*Text in the avatar should be "Scramjet" just like it currently has. Objects to appear in avatar would be Earth, other celestial objects, a UFO, and of course a Scramjet/Hypersonic plane type vehicle.

The scramjet vehicle you see in my current avatar can easily be found on google images by searching for scramjet. Here is another scramjet pic that could be usuable IMO: Article w/scramjet pic

Thanks in advance to anyone who makes an attempt.

How do you do that border in Photoshop? Do you have to make it or is there an easy option that will make it?

It should be under your layer-styles, or at least it is in in my version: 'PS elements 6.0', not sure about older versions though....
I think you can download them as well, there are tons of free layer styles and filters on the net

New background avatar.



Background code: /member/d05274eef62d.jpg

The size could be wrong, so try it and if it doesnt fit I will resize it.

Laters.

Thanks to all who responded. GypsK, John Q, thanks.


I have decided to go with John Q's fantastic creation, although now that ive made it my custom background it seems maybe its not quite long enough so it repeats a bit towards the bottom.

Try this one, Ive extended it to 480 pixels high.



Background code: /member/d6aa32f3d18e.jpg

It still may need to go longer
if it does then I will do it again.

Also background avys arent sizing properly at the moment anyway, there seems to be a browser issue. Hopefully someone somewhere is looking into it.

Looks like it's still a bit short John Q.

Thanks so much for all your hard work man. You really made a killer avatar that even rivals the great GEL

That's strange John, 480 px should be well enough to fit...
even 475 fits...
Think were in for a long ride before we figure this background sizes out, lol

Maybe my old archivist badge throws off the size. But I'm not sure why it would throw it off that much?

John Q definitely got it closer than his original.... but still off a bit.

wow indeed, that badge gives you a larger background space, about 50-70 px... so that's why they set the max hight higher then needed

above the badge is the space for the transparent gif, so it sits below that pushing all the rest down...

No worries, try these two..

Height 530 pixels



Background code: /member/fd6f0623aeec.jpg

or this one

Height 550 pixels



Background code: /member/5f33a034576b.jpg

Hopefully one of these should work, if not I will resize it again.


Cheers.

Now it fits but unfortunately it has made it so the archivist badge is now covering up the SCRAMJET lettering.

There's apparently no winning with this new ATS avatar thing....

I dont know what else to say, words fail me.

I do like a challenge but..

Leave it with me, I will see what I can do. Might take a while.

Cheers.

Edit to add: Scram what height avatar did you use ? cheers.

Hey if you try and come up with a solution, take your time. I'm not complaining. It's just funny how one problem leads to another.


Both the 550 or the 530 seem to work ok. I tried changing the height myself to 515 pix, but that was already getting a bit too small...

I need to have the staff here just exchange my archivist badge for a scramjet badge but I don't think that's possible...

Whatever size youre using is still repeating (a little) thats how I see it anyway, I know it looks different depending upon the browser youre using, thats the problem were having that I spoke of earlier.

Anyway, onwards..


Ive gone for 540 pixels height this time (havent tried that number yet lol)

Also resized the top planet it was getting distorted, and Ive put your name up higher. Text is a little different.

540 pixel height



Background code: /member/49f8c8dfc3b5.jpg

and one without your name again 540 height.



Background code: /member/0af45f9f8dc7.jpg

Hopefully that should do it.
