Request In need of Raichu avi/banner set!

Recommended Posts

Okay, who wants to make me an avi/banner set, please?

I'd like for the initials c.m. to be on the avi, and my username on the banner. Use whatever colors you think would stand out, and I would like this pic to be used.

Other than that, creative freedom!

[b]Thanks for the concern, CaNz. Like you said, I won't be able to make any banners until after today.

I really like what you did with chibi's last banner and avatar though. So if it's okay with you, maybe we can brainstorm together and work on a group project for this? If not, then good luck making her banner. I know it will turn out so cute. :biggrin: [/b]

i was thinking maybe we could make the avatar a gif Lilt?
i thought maybe mirroring the pic so that its left and right alternate but i am not sure what to do with the background. But if we work together we could make sis the best avatar ever! and if Delta cant make the banner i am sure we could pool our resources and do that as well.

[b]Do you mean something like this, CaNz?

And an avatar as a gif might be interesting. I'll need you to save it though when we're done. My program that I use doesn't compress files very well.

As for the banner, if we do work on it, I was thinking of something along the lines of "chibi-master has evolved into Raichu!" for the text.[/b]

thats pretty much it, except becauce we have such a long parameter of space we could have it do something with the backround... i was just thinking about having it jump off rocks in a lake, i have a little background thing that i will post soon...

and i do love the evolution idea... but we should give delta a chance... old pros need some respect i guess... :P

[b]Well hopefully Delta is reading this and likes the evolution idea too.

I'll play around with that background too, as soon as you post it. This is going to be a lot of fun. :biggrin:

Any ideas for the font by the way? [/b]

sorry it took so long to do the background.. i am not use to putting any real time and effort into requests.
anyways i did a pokemon gameboy themed water background.

i figure if we can get the Chu to jump from rock to rock it would look pretty cool. im just not sure how to make the jump look good.
i dont know weather to make it kick up a bit of dust each jump or do a quick attack kinda shadowy thing... i hope you can help me out Lilt... though its only two days til the weekend.
anyways i am also giving links to the gif components.

[left]so far so good...
as for the text... i do still have a pokemon font in truetype... but if you wanna experiment with it it would probably come out better...

[b]That sounds like a great idea, although it will be tough to make her jump around.

I like the dust cloud idea if that one is easier.

Also, I tried to put the gif together myself but couldn't. I opened up the already made gif and it looks like things are layered differently than in the images you gave me.

Oh and what about having some text fly in like this? (So that it eventually covers the avatar.)

[url="http://i38.tinypic.com/29x9mv4.jpg"]Text Idea[/url]

Or do you think it would be better to have it just stay at the bottom the whole time?

I will be a little busy until next week Canz, but I can brainstorm and try to sneak on over the weekend. Thanks for trying to work with me on this. I'm actually learning a lot as I go along.[/b]

i figured it would be tough to do, but it would end up being pretty awesome.... plus making gifs are kinda new to me... so it am learning as i go to.

as for piecing the gif together all 15 slides are there... and i double checked (shoulda did it in the first place but i was lazy) and they all miraculously were correct. so it must have been what you used to make the gif.
you might have to try again unfortunately.

as for the text idea i am not sure what you mean. was the link supposed to send me to a gif image 'cause it just looks like CM! over the whole thing and it isn't moving...
as far as text goes an animation does sound fun. i think a horizontal marque scroll would balance it out a bit, because the gif i made kinda looks like a cylinder if you look at it a little too long(it was too much work to try and fake a 'V' shaped peripheral fading out... i want to make it look good, but animation is hard work!) basically i took a stock image of the ocean (well... three images really) and resized it to make it smaller, then once more to look even smaller to make it look like the world had depth. then i did the same thing with rocks along the water, except i added a fourth really tiny resize to make it look like there is just a glimmer in the distance.
so if we want to do the chu jumping around we would probably be best to do the same kinda thing... which i could do but i need an image for jumping dust. i usually just rip stuff from images, cause i really cant draw on computers.

also it would be really cool to brainstorm with you! im sure we could figure out how to make it look amazing (and if delta doesn't come back by the time we finish we should start on the banner ourselves) but don't feel like you gotta give up your weekend... its not like i could leave you behind when i need your help!

[COLOR=#35425e]Oh my goodness! The water background is amazing, CaNz! It's like level 99 in banner making. Loads of cool!

You know what else I really like? The brainstorming bit. It's the first time I've seen it in action here, and I am mighty impressed! I'm sorry I can't make banner for you, cm, but I think your future banner is in very good hands. Thanks very much, CaNz and Lilt for seeing to this request![/COLOR]

a complement in banner/avatar making from Delta is praise from the best.
Lilt and I are pretty close in this business, i don't think anyone really wanted exclusive rights to the field and we both do this to get better at graphic disign as well as giving back to the people we like.... and just because Lilt makes cooler stuff than me, she is nice enough to let me help out around here too :]

Hopefully you wont retire though Delta, maybe if you get more time you could come back and show the new generation a thing or two!

[b]Yeah, I would like to see a new banner from Delta so I could learn a few things and see what I'm missing. :biggrin:

I think you have that the other way around though CaNz, since I always liked your stuff a lot. Also I'm learning a lot from you so far with the gif making. :P

Anyways, that was supposed to be moving text but I couldn't do it and just made it a jpeg. So it's not broken, don't worry. I guess we should just put the text down below then.

As for the kicking up dust, I thought maybe we could get something from a game sprite or something. I don't know what game would have it though. Also, I was looking for something like that and stumbled on this. Maybe we can learn from this thread?[/b]

wow!
that site is pretty cool...
i wish the people making those dust clouds were talking more about how to make them.
i dunno if i can reuse any of them though because they are just too detailed. My background is pretty simplistic and it would need a simple, but distinctive dust kick up thing that i could add on and remove in one frame. we need a good image that is simple but clearly shows a jump.

as for font... im not sure what to go for,
it would be simple with a c.m. kinda thing... but it would be cool if we could have matching font and banner text.
[url="http://www.dafont.com/pokemon.font"]FONT[/url]
i think this hollow font download is pretty cool... but you might be able to find a better one.

and since we are now working on the Banner too we should start thinking of ideas...
if you dont mind, maybe we should find a time in the future were we can bounce ideas back and forth in a quicker succession. iit has been a while ssince sis asked for this, plus it would probably save us time in the long run.
is there any time you know that you will be online and could talk for a while?

[b]Well, I'll keep searching for dust clouds for you. I'm sorry that that link wasn't more helpful.

As for the matching text, I was going to say that would be too hard to do but since we're working on the banner too I think we can manage it. If you have any ideas for the font let me know.

For the banner, don't worry about that I have a lot of good ideas. I just need to get my "graphic design" compy working again. I'm reinstalling Windows right now.

Also I'm online for most of today, tomorrow and maybe Friday. So I'm available for bouncing ideas back and forth. Send me a PM if you want, CaNz.[/b]

Awesome!
i had an idea were inside of the banner we have a rectangular pokedex thing, then the screen could be the gameboy evolution of pikachu.
as for the text did you check out the link i put out.

i think its pretty cool... and you can make it any color... but if you can find something better that would be cool too.

[b]That would be a great idea. I just can't find anything of Pikachu evolving into Raichu. I'll keep searching.

And I just checked out the font now. I'll install it, thanks CaNz. That will be the perfect font for this.[/b]

^-^ i'm glad it works for you!
both the font and the evolution thingy.
i already got the workings for a decent gif... i went on youtube, found a clear video and copied screen shots till i had enough.
it was a task, but i think i can make a good gif of what i got.
