Try this out. Might like this one. If you don't just give me some input in a PM.
Add me to the club, some of my work:
After effects used some tutorials
<< Just for fun!
Could I request a new sig/avatar please guys?
wat wuld u like?
Hmmm, something kind of similar to my current sig, but what I would like changed is the anime character and replaced by a few shots of my speaker/s (I'll provide these shortly) and possibly a different photo of my motherboard, I'll let you select this from the internet at your will I'd like to keep the carbon fibre look on the sig + the AMD x6 logo + the motherboard model, please
for the avatar you could use the current photo but make it look better in whatever way you please as long as it fits in with the sig you create
EDIT: Here's the photo... it could do with reversing left to right as I think it would fit the sig better, is that ok?
Also very sorry for the photo size I didn't realise I took the camera out the other day so had changed the resolution.... Also ImageShack is slow :/
Damn.. That is some cool stuff, wish i had that skills.
What is after effects?
Thanks for taking Techtu's request! The help is appreciated! I acknowledge you as part of GAU.
Hmm im semi confused. Re explain it a bit better! What anime char would you like? and what about the text? Choose from: www.dafont.com
Hows that looking? It's nowhere near complete, but I need you to tell me what you want. I also honestly could not get it looking good by using the speaker as a background layer.
What are the mesurements (in px/pixels) for a sig?
I would like one, being a ninja/samurai sword with my name in the midle.. in japanese (i can help on that part - the japanese name). is this possible?
I agree, after reading back what I wrote I confused myself
Basically I like what you've done so far although lets scrap the anime charaters all together I'd like something in place of that but as for what I'm struggling with...
I think I'm liking the idea of using a mean photo of Darth Vader - possibly with a green light sabre so the light from that reflects onto/off his helmat & suit, I just think this would help highlight the image of Darth Vader as he's a pretty dark guy lol.
The writing style could you try Fairy Dust please and then we'll see how it looks after those few changes
Ohhh one more thing my currant AMD x6 logo has a green glow around it - I'd like to keep that aswel please, and maybe make the logo a little bit smaller too?
Okie dokie. It's very hard to find a good pic of darth worthy of putting in the sig. Anyone else you would like to put in there? And also the fairy text doesn't help either. So its a new person to put into the sig! You must choose wisely
Just throwing my .02 in. Try using a pic of Anakin before he got toasted in lava but after he turned from light to dark. You know the non-mechanical Darth Vader xD
500x100 max. I will look at creating a sig for you. Anything else you want in it? Specific color scheme?
O yes, but. Starwars isn't that scary, if you catch my drift? It doesn't give that sense of power within the sig.
Oh I understand but he is the most powerful character in the series. I do agree as well. Like i said, just throwing my .02 around
Hows that? :S
Could greyscale the anakin pic and make the eyes stand out more by giving them color. If you work with photoshop pm me the psd and I can see about doing some touch-ups.
Yes I do work with PS, how can i send you the PSD?
Via personal email?
I'd actually like Darth Vader with a green or even blue light being shone onto him for the kinda glow effect (as if the sun was blazing down on him, but not the sun lol).
But thanks for your suggestion... it may be something I would like changed in the future
Archive it ( RAR, ZIP, 7Z) then go to megaupload.com and pm me the download link.
Black bakground, if the sword can have a "metalic" look, and perhaps a 'flare' or whatver it is called at the end of the tip. If possible, on the sword two dragons facing the name. I was thinking about the name inside the dragon - but it would look too strange.
Note: I do not want it to look like a shorter sword (Katana or similar) but more like a Nodachi, so if the Ho(the part you hold) is not visible it is ok. The Habaki (sleeve?) can be either same color of sword or gold - your choice. Also sword is slitely bent in the midle.
I do not know if you would need the font to create the name but i can make image of the name and / or link to where to download a good font.
No hurry however i need too rethink design and see if i can get someone too take picture of my sword(it would help i think). I can try and draw a dragon design suitable if i get time and scan it in class.
Oh, and thank you!
So basically you just want a sword with your name on it in japanese with dragons engraved in the blade on a black background?
So, Techtu. We have these, if you like them.
You've almost got it
Can I have Darth Vader with instead of Anakin? and I've now decided (if it's not too much hassle) could I have a blue glow around the x6 logo and possibly make it look more rounded on the edge's?
One more little thing when you put Darth Vader in place could you try make sure there is some glow from the 'light sabre' shining onto him also I'd like the light sabre to have a blue glow instead of green now. again i just want to lighten up the sig, and a nice ambiant glow would be great
Link me to the pic of Darth Vader you wish to put. I also added the blue glow around the logo and writing.
Well.. yes. However, this is what i can't do myself: Make it look like the dragons are a piece of the sword - engraved is the word i think iam trying to find. I have tested, but i just cant figure out "how to" make it look like the real deal.
Example (not the best example): http://www.japanese-kozuka.com/all_...eb_sites/samurai_sword_horimono_engraving.jpg
It is ok if the dragons are tribe looking - OR, a dragon is on top of the sword.
Thanks for the help.
