New Layout + Banner Collab!

Post by Steel on Thu Dec 27, 2012 12:32 am

Greetings, cadets! We're going to welcome the new year with style and panache. First off, we've got a brand-spanking new layout to boast about! (Feel free to post any complaints, suggestions, etc. about it below.) And what better way to decorate a forum is there than its banner? And here's where you come in!

Fox came up with the brilliant idea that we should each draw a character for the banner. Before you start panicking, you'll be drawing the character in a very sketch-like way. All I need is the lineart!

For example, you give me something like this:
Spoiler:
And then I make it into something like this:
Spoiler:
After I've got them all, I can add them to the banner, and then upload the revised version so we'll be graced by our own hard work!

The requirements are:
1. A fullbody sketch that's at least 700 pixels tall.
2. Save it as a .png file.
3. Send me the file through a private message. (You can upload it anywhere you want in order to send it to me. Photobucket, Imgur, Tinypic, Imageshack, etc.)

And here, ladies and gents, are the characters up for the banner! (If you've got any other characters to suggest, say so below.) Good guys will be featured on the left, whereas bad guys will be featured on the right.

Good Guys:
1. Buzz Lightyear - claimed by Olivus Prime!
2. Mira Nova - claimed by Darkmatterfangirl! - COMPLETE!
3. Booster - claimed by thetalkingtrampoline!
4. XR - claimed by levy120! - COMPLETE!
5. Cmdr. Nebula
6. Ty - claimed by FoxStorm! - COMPLETE!

Bad Guys:
1. Evil Emperor Zurg - claimed by Senior Doctor Thalassi!
2. Warp Darkmatter
3. NOS-4-A2 - claimed by GalacticAlliance!
4. Gravitina - claimed by Ranger-Nova! - COMPLETE!
5. XL
6. Torque

And that's it! This is on a "first come, first serve" basis, as well as a "we're gonna give everyone a chance to draw" basis, so... acquire while you can! Only one character per member, kay?

I could do NOS or Warp, those two are the only ones that I'm really good at drawing right now. This is going to be great! Very Happy

Craters. XD

Well, seeing as the first character I would have picked is already taken, I decided to try my hand at Zurg instead. I'm having a little trouble with his hand at the moment, but other than that, he turned out pretty well...at least, I think he turned out alright. XD

Unfortunately, I don't have access to a scanner at the moment; the soonest I'll be able to upload this and (possibly) give this to you, Steel, is Saturday--unless I can figure out a way to coordinate with the person I'm currently staying with.

I'd love to try my hand at a Buzz icon, and I assume we're meant to do a mugshot of the character, rather than a full-body sketch?

On another note, while the new layout is pretty snazzy, I do mourn the loss of the "Recent Posts" scroll, since it was good for getting to the hot topics quickly. I'm sure I'll get used to the new layout, but at the moment I'm tilting towards the old one.

Are there any specifics for the drawings? I'm guessing that you want head-shots, but is there a direction that they should be facing, or should they be looking forwards?

Ooo this sounds awesome! Well I have some Mira head-shot sketches that I've been working on (from about the arm pits up Razz), so could I claim the Mira portion? Smile

And on a side note, Happy New Year's Eve y'all! Very Happy

I'd like to do Gravitina, if no one else wants to. Smile

Actually, to answer your question, my friend, I got a chance to talk to Steel and she said that full-body sketches would be best to work for the banner. *smiles*

I can do full body, though it might take a little more time. Is there a due date to send in the artwork?

Nice! So who have you decided on? Warp, or NOS?

Oh, shush, Levy, you doubt your own skills! You can totes draw XR or someone else. Also, thanks! Glad you like the layout~

That's fine! This project will take 1-2 months anyway depending on everyone's free time. Just as long as it's not longer than that, take your time!

You can still see that if you click "Portal" on the menu. Wink But thanks for the feedback!

Like I mentioned in my post, good guys face one way and the bad guys the other, so it can appear as if each group is looking at the BLoSC logo. And I'm so sorry for not clarifying between mugshot vs fullbody! But yes, like Fox said, please go for fullbody sketches, if you can! <3

And Happy New Year to you all too!

I think I'll do NOS, but if no one wants to take Warp, I'll be happy to draw him too.

Okay, NOS it is! I'll add you to the list, but hopefully someone will be found for the Warpster~

I talked to thetalkingtrampoline, who is good at drawing Booster, and she says she'd be happy to draw him for the banner, so that's another character claimed! Smile

If really no one else wants to take him I might try to do an XR, my drawing style is just... very sketchy xD

23/01:Great! Adding you two to the list!

Also, I've received the pics for Gravitina and Ty. Get your butts moving, people! I'll be needing the rest before I can update the banner~

24/01: And just received XR! Thanks, levy!

04/02: And just received Mira Nova! Get crack-a-lacking, people! These characters aren't drawing themselves~

Bumping the thread! Some of our claimed characters for the banner still need to be completed (Buzz, Booster, Zurg and NOS) and some still need claiming (Nebula, Warp, XL, Torque). A friendly reminder to send your stuff in before April 10, because we've dawdled on having a purty banner long enough, haha. xD

If you don't mind me copping out and tracing XL for this, I have one completed. 8'D If this is okay, I can send either one with a transparent background, white background, or send both.
