Hahaha, thanks Tomato, didn't expect that :lol:

Do the three have names? For some reason I keep thinking Desmona for the middle one :rolleyes:

As a suggestion, more aesthetic than anything else, have you thought of using a transparent background? I know, I know, minor minor nitpick :P
I so need booze -_-

Their characters do, yes. Yami, Mahty, and Sai. Some of you might recognize Mahty from my Influx skins, but Yami and Sai haven't been seen here before (outside of some very bad skins years ago which I want to forget), at least not unmasked.

As far as aesthetics go, I'd prefer to do these things that way (It'd make editing them easier for me, if nothing else) but I can't take these straight from the program, I have to print screen and paste them into PSP. I'd have to manually add the transparency back in, and that would take more time then the actual editing.

I'm trying to be a nice guy here, but really, I'm getting annoyed and those who know me know not a good state for me to be in. I tend to go nuts and flame people. So I am going to clarify something about my "I take requests" statement that, I thought, was rather obvious.

This thread, and all the images I put in it (whether they be from FR or not) are AVATARS. I have about a dozen X-men, I haven't posted them. I could do the rest of my original Influx chars (sans the ones already up here due to them being avatars for me and friends) but I wouldn't post them. Consequently, all requests that I will do in relation to this thread are AVATAR RELATED. If I won't even post my OWN originals here, I'm sure as pizza not doing yours.

Another thing... This thread is for drawn artwork. I've gotten a request for skins in my PM box, I won't say from whom (and I would advise said person not to post a reply here, and don't bother apologizing... I understand, even if it does annoy me) and I flat out do not do that unless I know the person, and/or the character. (For instance, if TUE were to request a custom mesh bit, or Prem an FX piece) In the entire time I've been here, I've think I've taken maybe one skin request (and I still cannot finish it, BTW) and have only completed one contest despite entering several. And in the case of the request and at least one of the contests, I was so drained of creative energy I left shortly afterward.

Now, there is a good possibility of me maybe doing an avatar skin or five because of this thread. I'm an avatar guy, always have been. But the work will be on MY terms, because I want to do it.

Anyway, rant over. Image now!



I felt doing this was sort of appropriate since I initially designed him, heh.

Edit:Missed a few details, I was kinda tired when I put it together >.<

actually, the only reason I don't post names is because I'm curious how many people actually recognize all the FR ones

Finally had a chance to sit down and really play with this editor.  It's quite versatile and got plenty of tools and part, though there is one amusing bug - I switched to a chat window, and as I was typing suddenly one of the parts started dancing around the screen, as it was reacting to the editor's shortcut commands as I hit them in chat.  Took me a second to realize what was happening.  :)

If anyone's interested, I made MJB pretty close without any PS editing.

You don't mind me posting here?  Since it was your thread I thought it should be your call.

I take it that's directed at me :blink:?

I don't care, actually. I may not put it in the first post, but I'll definitely steal take a look at what you've done sofar.

Oh, and that chat thing? happens to me all the time, especially when prem's on when I'm trying to work on them.

how do you save the image

Firstly, way to go quoting the biggest post in this thread in a completely unnecessary fashion. Really, spectacular show there.

Secondly, you can't. Hit print screen, paste it into Paint or Gimp or whatever, then crop it down manually.

Discoking, you can go back and edit your post and take out the quoted text.

If you're on a Mac, this should help you take a screen shot: Link

And here are two I put together.  Again, was trying to do as much as possible without any post production - just using the program.


(upon reflection I should have narrowed MJB's nose a touch for more facial variety, but too late now.  Oh well)

Great Spotlight, 'Mato.

And... I know what the connection is. I was one of the few that redid my avatar for this, but then crapped out on the Herofile.
