Hi all! I've recently been studying graphics, and over the past week I've been making signatures and avatars for many people on a couple of other forums. This thread is for people to request any kind of graphic (signatures, avatars etc.) and I'll at least attempt to make it for them. All you have to do is post here with any ideas you have, and preferably with imagery and the text you'd like included too! The more specific you are, the more likely I'll be able to complete the task to exactly the way you imagined it.

This thread will also serve as a place for me to demonstrate my artwork. In the next couple of days I hope to scan loads of the work I was doing at college, and I'm also working on my portfolio so all updates for that will be posted here.

Anyway, enough talk! Here are just a few examples of what I've done for people on other forums:

Thanks for looking, and don't hesitate to ask any questions!

Thanks for the compliment. :happy:

Well, is there anything in particular you're after? I could probably get it knocked up in about an hour, and I've got a couple of really good Tau images as well. Just PM me with any specifics.

Those look great! I'm excited to see this artwork you speak of :grin:

It'd be great if you could do one for me based around the Imperial Guard, possibly including some of the models I've painted recently (they're on my WIP thread). Would that be possible?

Happy to have you on board Duality!

Thanks a lot! I'm hoping to get some up before the weekend's over. It is stuff that's a few months old though, and from when I was just getting used ot Photoshop, so it's not anything special. However, I'm hoping to get some improved stuff up over the next week!

I'll get to work on it now, and PM you with the first draft soon.

Cheers mate, happy to be here. :happy:

nice rectangles! would it be slightly possible for you to maybe have a go at deciding weather to try and create one featuring celestine and flames? (i'm giving you a lot of chances there to say no) i need to replace my current one.

I'm starting on it now, and I'll PM you once it's done.

wow. really liking these works so far, do you do fantasy ones or just with the 40k?

I can do anything you want. Not everything I've done is 40k. For example, my signature, and one is partly Aeronautica Imperialis. They don't have to be signatures either, I can do avatars or whatever you request. :happy:

By the way, so far people haven't been very specific. I don't mind too much, but it requires much more work on my part, especially as there is less chance of you not wanting any changes made than there would be if you told me almost exactly what you wanted.

Thanks. Also, there are several people who get a couple of signatures done by different people so that they can switch them when they feel like it. Up to you. :happy:

And me, your work is truly brilliant that it is almost making me want to get you to make me one rather than doing it myself ;)

I'm always happy to. Especially considering the weekend is now over.

Out of professional interest what program are you using to make those? I used to produce signatures for some Final Fantasy XI boards.

Anywho, good luck.

Could you do me one?

Something samurai themed, with a Japanese feel and my name on it.

You have can free rein as to the exacts though....

I've got the images I intend to use, and downloaded a new font. Once the first draft is finished I'll PM you.

Feel free. I enjoy a larger workload if I like the work I'm doing, especially considering this is all helping to build up my portfolio; I'm looking for any graphics work at all as I'm attempting to become a freelance graphic artist.


Updated the first post with CheeriO's signature, as well as suicidal0's.

Most people like to have their preferred armies included, or similarly an army they're currently working on to advertise their projects. Alternatively, you could use any interests you have such as Musashi who asked for a Samurai based signature. Just throw down any ideas and I'll see what I can do. :happy:

Hey Duality, I know you draw, could you show us some of your pics if you have them :happy:

Also do you take commisions for stuff??

Cheers,

Well, I've not done anything since before Christmas, when I was still in college. I intend to start working on something later tonight though, so I could post up my progress of that. :happy:



Also do you take commisions for stuff??
Sure. Never have done before, but it's basically where I'm trying to get to. What did you have in mind?




I just had another idea.
Uhuh. What is this idea?

It's become a bit of a inside joke about me, but I've experience with the Russian Red Star (http://images.marketplaceadvisor.channeladvisor.com/hi/49/49296/red_star_soviet_badge_10-09_1.jpg) and the title 'Fearless Leader.' Think you could do another sig, with both of them?

Dark red background, Red Star in the Back with the words 'Gingusdan - Fearless Leader, for Mother Russia!' or such. Leave out the 'For Mother Russia' if you wish.

Hm, let's give this a shot. Let's see what you can do with any of the pictures from my WIP (http://www.astronomican.com/forums/showthread.php?t=12479). Also, if you're so inclined, some Sig banners for the Astro Mag that are about the size of the ones currently in my Signature, using the pictures I sent you yesterday.

I'll get onto it tomorrow, most likely. For the Astro Mag, two things:

1. Do you know what sizes those signatures are exactly? The standard size I use is 450x150, pixels.

2. I couldn't get that folder I downloaded to work. If you could just give the [IMG] or direct links for them from Photobucket that would be great. :happy:
