Ranger-Nova's Requests

Post by Steel on Fri Feb 03, 2012 3:34 am

Gosh, these are all so pretty! *happy wiggle*

Oh, hey! I scanned pictures from the Happy Meal bag of BLoSC and I was wondering whether you could vector Zurg for me so I could make a signature of sorts with it? I'd be ever so grateful~!



Here it is! I understand it might be more difficult than the other seeing as these bags don't have the best colour scheme in the world, but I figured you could at least try, pretty please? *puppy eyes*

I'd also like the size of the larger image to remain, if that's okay. I work better with larger images when doing graphics and the like. Thank yewwwwwww!

I'd be happy to. Smile

The colours aren't really an issue - I can easily change the shades slightly in Corel - the only difficulty I might have is around his eyes, which aren't too distinct, but I should be able to manage.

Just need to clear two things up: do you want me to send you the file as a vector, or a png/jpg/bmp? And what's the exact size you'd like it?

Yay! Thanks very much. You really made my day. And take your time. I'm sorry if any parts might be difficult, but I could probably redraw those if you'd rather not spend too much time on it.

I'd like it to be at the same size it already is. As for a format, I think I'd prefer .bmp over .png, but what kind of a file is a vector file?

Thank you very much once again! Very Happy

Don't worry - I've had to do a bit of redrawing in the Gimp, but now most of that's sorted out and I've just got a little more work to do to make it ready for vector conversion. Smile .bmp is fine - I can easily copy it into the Gimp and save it as that, although .png's can have transparent backgrounds, and that would save you having to cut away the background. But whichever you prefer is fine.

By vector file, I meant either a .wmf or a .cdr - althought a .cdr would only work if you had CorelDRAW as well.

Just one last question: do you just want Zurg, or do you want anything else in the picture?

*edit* Just thought I'd give you a preview of the work so far. You can tell me what you still want done, and if anything needs changing:



You'll notice it has a transparent background 'cause it's a .png. I can easily give you a .bmp if you want, but a .png would work better if you need the background gone.

Sorryyyyyyy, I've been swamped all week! D:

But that looks lovely, from what I can see of the thumbnail! If there's no real difference, then .PNG would be fine so I can add my own background later on. And yes, I'd prefer just Zurg, if that is possible. :3

Thank you so very very much! (There... is a larger version of the file, yes? I could not click on it for some reason...)

I can make it any size you want - that's the beauty of vectors. I just made it small for the preview 'cause it's easier. If you wanted, I could give you a humongously huge Zurg. Very Happy

And I can easily remove the rest of the background - just wondering, do you want the pen or not? That'd be a bit harder to remove, but I think I could manage it if you wanted.

Wonderful! Gimme the humongously huge Zurg, then! 8D

And I definitely want the pen. It's the reason I wanted this picture in the first place. Razz *wants to somehow make it a journal heading*

Thank you very much once again! <333

No problem. Yesterday, when I was exporting Zurg, I accidentally created a humongously huge Zurg (as in 7000x5000 - it took up 122 megabytes!), but I think that one was a bit too big. I've got one the same size as the picture you gave me which I can post. I'm still a bit unhappy with it - some of the lines don't look smooth enough to me - but if you scaled the image down a little, that shouldn't be noticeable. After a few more touch ups, I'll post it here and you can tell me if it's okay. If you think the lines aren't smooth enough, I can try to fix them in the Gimp.

*EDIT*

Okay, just finished the touch ups. I'm still not entirely satisfied - there are certain lines that don't look smooth enough, and certain parts are a bit blocky, like around the Z on his chest. However, most of the problems won't be visible if the image is scaled down - I'm not sure if you plan to do that or not, though. I'm posting the pic here, but if there are any parts you'd like improved, just tell me and I'll be happy to go back and change it!

Am so slow, just saw this yet again!

Thank you! I guess it does look a little blocky, but I am still really pleased with how you managed to pull this off seeing as it was such a crap scan. I suppose I am not quite fond of how thick some lines are, but I really don't mind and thank you for all your hard work! I can try to tweak some things myself now.

*hug* Thank you so much~! :3

ETA: I also just realised I completely monopolised your thread! I'll split it up and move the rest to Miscellaneous and name it "Requests" or something because this had nothing to do with icons. But if you want me to change it, or lock the thread or something afterwards, let me know!

I'm glad I could help - and if you ever need anything else done, let me know.

And I've got know problem with you separating the thread. If anyone else has a request, they're welcome to ask and I'll try to help them out.
