Art Graphics Club


Recommended Posts

[SIZE=1][B]By Imi[/B][/CENTER]

I got a little idea in my head, so I'm going to see if it works.

I want to create an OB Graphics Club, nothing official, just a place where those with [B]graphics questions[/B] can ask others, and where club members can challenge other members to [B]graphics battles[/B] (much like those Sun and I did together).

In no way is this club going to be elitist. Anyone who wants to can join, just as long as they're serious about improving their work or helping others. However, to maintain the "club" mentality, you must send an e-mail to me (check my profile for it) briefly telling me why you'd like to join the club. Be serious in your e-mails -- I'm not looking for much, just serious interest.

Supposing this is the "official thread," I'll have a member list that I edit whenever I get sign-ups, as well as periodically announce battles that are coming up and stuff. Any questions? E-mail me.

[SIZE=2][b]Graphics Club Class[/b][/SIZE]
Since I noticed that I haven't been answering too many questions, I decided to create a class, where people who pose their questions to me via PM, and I answer them with the help of other Club members. You can find the class [b][url=http://www.otakuboards.com/showthread.php?p=673390#post673390]here[/url][/b], so read up on it, and get involved!

[color=blue][size=1]I'm up for it. My only question is if a PM would suffice? I mean, if I have to, I'll e-mail you. But it's just easier for me (being as utterly lazy as I am) to send my "sign up", as it were, to you to join. But (in the six seconds before I clicked the "submit reply" button, I decided that) I'll e-mail you anyways. ^_^;;

Other than that, I think this idea pwns. x3[/size][/color]

[COLOR=DarkOrange][SIZE=1][FONT=Verdana]Alright this was a brilliant idea, I was waiting for us to make a club and this idea tops the one that i had. Here's a banner for the club.

[SIZE=1]Thanks, Sun. I don't really fancy the "05 GFX Club" or the stock for that matter. An angry man has little to nothing to do with a club. I was thinking more of a happy header ... maybe of a group posing or something? That's not to say I'm ungrateful -- I'm really impressed that you took it upon yourself (during final week no less) to make a graphic for a club just getting off the ground. The background looks like some serious stuff too. ^_^[/SIZE]

[color=blue][size=1]Ooh! In need of a header, eh? I'll try my hand at it and see what I can come up with. x3

And about your group posing idea - maybe we can all send a copy of a favorite picture we've usde in a banner of ours to someone willing to make a header, and then we could have sort of a group that way? Just an idea. ^_^;[/size][/color]

[SIZE=1]I don't want this to rot away here for the next week, as I'm going to be leaving for the beach shortly, but I'm taking the liberty of giving the Club some direction.

[B]For now, if you'd like for the Club to review your art, place [GFX] in the title of your thread.[/B] This will alert other club members that there is some art you'd like for them to review.

[B]Also, feel free to ask for tips on how to improve ones general technique or pointers on specific problems you may have.[/B] We'll start it off by discussing my technique and problems with it, but you can ask for evalutions and stuff.

I hope that was specific enough. I'm not going to have computer access, so uh... may the Force be with you.[/SiZe]

[COLOR=DarkOrange][SIZE=1][FONT=Verdana]Have fun Retri ^_^

Since Retri is on his vacation, he has given me the role of acting as the leader of the club temporarily, so come to me for questions.

Also if you feel like this club will benifit you and you want to be an active member just send me your detailed application on why you want to be a [B]serious[/B] member of the club.
You can reach me at, [B]E-Mail:[/B]TheSexiAsian@hotmail.com, [B]AIM:[/B] TheSexiAsian, or you can just simply [B]P.M[/B] me.

To give everyone the heads up there is a Graphic Club: [B]GFX Battle[/B] going on currently. The voting will end Tuesday, so go and support your fellow members and vote.

The current battle is [B]Ima vs. Sun[/B]
And you can be directed [URL=http://www.otakuboards.com/showthread.php?t=47899]here.[/URL]

And please take note that i am open for questions or opinions about my artwork so feel free to either ask me in this thread, by e-mail, or etc.

[I'm repeating this so i can edit the member list while Retri is gone]

You should also include whether you want to be eligible for battles when you send your request to join. If you fail to include this information, I will assume you do not want to be eligible, however, you can always contact me and request for me to change your status. Bold will signify those who wish to be eligible for battles.[/SIZE][/COLOR][/FONT]

[SIZE=1]I went ahead and done a little graphic for the club. I know it isn't all that good, but it really has helped me climb out of the graphic making rut I was in. :3 I'm happy now. Also learnt a few more tricks with brushes and text, which is always good.

Hope you all like.

[SIZE=1][COLOR=DarkOrange][FONT=Verdana]Whoa, i'm so happy you came out of your cage ^_^

That has got to be one of your best works, i love the colors and the border was a nice touch. The only flaw i see in this is that the stock isn't cropped to well. Maybe try to get rid of some of those white lines? Other than that, excellent work.

Since i didn't have photoshop Friday or Saturday, i had Retri make this last minute button for the graphic club (which is currently in my sig). I shall start making better ones since his sucks ^_^ since he did it last minute (He said so himself). So i'll be posting them on this thread and for anyone who wants a button feel free to take one.

And just to let you know i have updated the member's list. Several people have PM'd me saying that they're eligable for battles so those updates were made and we have a new member: [B][I]Haze[/I][/B]. Hope you enjoy your time here Hazey!

That's it for today's updates. Have fun guys.

These were actually harder than i thought :P








Update: Beta has joined the club. Beta we welcome you ^_^

[font=tahoma][color=navy]Oooh, I like these little things ^-^ Very colorful, and seeing them all together, I can't help but think of the houses in Edward Scissorhands..o.O.

The only thing negative I have to say, is that "OtakuBoards" is kind of fuzzy in all of them. I don't know if it's just me..or what. But that's about the only complaint I have with them. In fact, I wouldn't mind having one for myself.

Oh, welcome Beta ^^[/color][/font]

[SIZE=1]Hello all, I guess I'm the newest member to the GFX Club, and to start myself off here, I am going to challenge one of OB's finest, [b]Kitty[/b] to a Graphics Battle. (Note: You all rock XP)

I shall post the battle thread in the Art Studio, once Kitty accepts this battle invitation.

Thank you.

Oh! And welcome to the GFX Club. ^_~[/size][/color]

And for new members here are the updates:[/B][/U]

[COLOR=DimGray][SIZE=1]I've also sent an e-mail. Ah yes, the OAE. I remember it well, sorta, lol. I will always be a part of that group, as will all of the older artists, whether they return or not. Ah, good times. *thinks back* :animesmil I intend on visiting more, and making more graphics over the next month or so to get back into the habit of it.[/SIZE][/COLOR]

[SIZE=1]I'm back! So stop sending your e-mails to Sun, and give them to me. He is no longer the leader of the GFX Club. But, he [i]is in fact[/i] the vice-president of sorts. Basically he's a helper, cause he's more organized.

So far, we have several graphics battles running through the Graphics Club, which pleases me. Check out the [B]Otaku Graphica 2005[/B]. It's very enjoyable.[I] Feel free to post links in here directing to your graphic thread if you want more critique from us.[/I][/SIZE]

[COLOR=Blue][SIZE=1]Has anyone seen Sean online? I'm waiting for him to put up our battle thread. <_< But, as far as I know, he hasn't been online since he challenged me a day ago. Gah.. I hate being patient. >.<

Anyway, [URL=http://www.otakuboards.com/showthread.php?t=46114]here's[/URL] a link to my thread "Pawing at Paintshop". I tried putting [GFX] in the title, but it doesn't show in the forum yet. Meh.[/SIZE][/COLOR]

Hiyas, I thought I'd just post something and see what you all thought. Its not really a promo thing but just something simple I did.


Basically I made a new layer with black, then did a render->Difference Clouds filter and then a Blur->Radial Blur witha Zoom effect at 100 percent and moved it to the top left corner for the light source then I overlaid both layers.

The kanji reads "Please Twins!" Just something simple I cooked up.

[SIZE=1]Yeah, I like this one too. But, what does "Please Twins!" mean? If there were a comma, I might be able to figure out a few meanings. But for now... it's just a good picture. ^_^

[B]UPDATE:[/B] [b]Goddess[/b] is the winner in the battle versus Ima. Congratulations to them both for a match well fought. Check out [B]Sean and Kitty's[/B] battle, coming soon!

[B]Sean[/B] and [B]Kitty[/B] are battling! Check out their thread to vote on it. Voting closes tonight at 12:00 midnight, Eastern Standard Time (Washington DC, NYC, Boston time), so hurry!
