    Breathless' GFX Store

    Welcome to Breathless' GFX Store! If you would like to see some of my samples feel free to check out my Showcase! (./Note: I have recently moved my showcase branch! If you would like to see my older samples, you can see it here at my Old Showcase!) That being said, Breathless' GFX Store is now open! MOST RECENT: ./Note: Using my most recent work here. I'll replace it with most recent requested GFX upon completion! FAQs FAQs __________________________________________________________________________ How do I request a GFX from your store?! You just post in the thread! Can I request one of your pre-made GFX?! If you would like to use one of my works from my current showcase, just let me know which one and I'll apply your name to it! What about one from your old showcase?! Unfortunately, I've lost all my files from my old showcase, so I'll be unable to edit those. (I can try but It wouldn't look very good!) Can I request an original GFX from you?! Of course you can, just post away! Do I need anything in order to request?! No! You don't! That being said, I'm not sure what kind of GFX you would want either. I think it would be best for you to post at least what character/anime/game you want the GFX to involve! What about if I want specific things in my requested GFX?! That's awesome! Just let me know what you would like in your GFX with your request post, and I'll do my best to adhere to it! Is there a certain template that I need to use?! Well, you don't need to use it. But it's easy to fill out, and it would help. There's a template in the bottommost spoiler tag! After making a request, how long until the GFX will be complete?! Good question! Breathless' GFX Store, is a non-profit store that runs off of fun, not money! The speed of which I can complete the GFX strongly depends on how busy my real life is. It could vary from a few days to some weeks! __________________________________________________________________________ ./Notes: ./Notes: I'm not the best at doing renders! I can do them, but they won't turn out top quality! If possible, post a chosen render, or I can choose one at my own discretion. (Maybe we could request a render from another GFX shop.) This thread was my 500th post! It's a milestone for me on my forum journey! When I hit other milestones, I may hold special events! I can only do what I'm capable of, no more than that. __________________________________________________________________________ Template Template GFX Type: <Avatar, GIF, Signature, Banner, Wallpaper> Size: <Dimensions of GFX> Text: <What text you would like> Render/Stock: <Your chosen Render / Stock> - If there's none, I will choose one at my own discretion.

    [Tutorial] Loki Signature

    Tutorial: Loki Signature This thread will outline the method I used to create the Loki signature I'm currently sporting. I'm using Photoshop CS5 on Windows 7. There are probably differences between versions of Photoshop and/or between operating systems. I just don't know what those might be. General Setup: The process behind this signature was a little different that what I normally do. Usually, I find a render and make/find an appropriate background. When working with renders of real, live people, it's hard to make or find a background that matches well enough. For this signature, I took a screencap from an Avengers trailer and used that as my base. Here's the image, if anyone would like to follow along. Step 1: Open your image. Crop the image to an appropriate signature size; my standard is 500px x 150px. Note: I always name my layers so I know what I'm working on. I strongly recommend this; it makes it easier to keep track of everything. Step 2: Add a new Group . I make one group at the top of the layer stack, and put all of my Adjustment layers in it. This way I can easily turn it off and see what the original image looked like, and whether my adjustments made an improvement, or made it worse. Step 3: Add Adjustment layers , starting with a Gradient Map. This gives the image the overall color scheme. The one I chose can be found by clicking the gradient drop down box, and there's a little arrow to the right of the drop down menu (marked in red). From the next menu, choose Metals. I want a greenish signature because I know the character wears a green costume. Double-click on the gradient drop down box and a new window, called Gradient Editor, should pop up. To change the color of the signature, I'm going to change the dark blue (marked in red, below) to dark green, and the light blue (marked in yellow, below) to light green. Double-click the boxes and a color picker will open. For the dark green I used #0d4e0b, and for the light green I used #e9f5e9. I set the Blend mode to Hue, and the Opacity to 70%. The image will now have a green gradient to it. Note: Blend mode and Opacity are things that can be experimented with. I usually cycle through all the options before choosing the one I like the most. Step 4: Add a Brightness/Contrast Adjustment layer. The image is very dark, so I set the brightness to 90. I also wanted to give the image a little more contrast, so I set the contrast to 20. Step 5: Add a Color Balance Adjustment layer. I don't really have a method for using this; I just slide the bars left and right, and see what looks best. In this case, I used Cyan/Red +4, Magenta/Green -18, and Yellow/Blue -21. Step 6: Add a Vibrance Adjustment layer. Once again, there's no real method to this. I slide the bar up or down and see what works. In this case, I used Vibrance +50. Step 7: Add a texture above the background layer. I used this texture. Again, I cycled through the blending options, and chose Color Dodge, Opacity 40%. Note: The texture lightened up the image quite a bit. Some of the adjustment layers may need to be readjusted to counteract this. I don't know why I didn't screencap this step, whoops. But you can see the effect of the texture in the step 8 picture. Step 8: Add a Gradient Fill layer, but DON'T put it in the Group; put it right above the background layer. A menu will pop up; the settings I used were the transparent to black Gradient, Style: Reflected, Angle: 0, Scale: 105%, and Reverse is checked. This serves to black out the sides of the signature a little, bringing the focus to the character. Step 9: Add text. The text I used was “You were made to be ruled,” a line spoken one of the movie trailers. I made two text layers, one plain (“You were made to be”), and one a little fancier (“ruled”). For the plain text, I used Times New Roman 15pt, and for the fancy text, I used The King & Queen Font 23pt; the color of both was white. The blending settings for the both text layers used the Outer Glow effect. Right-click on the layer, and select Blending Options. Click Outer Glow to bring up the menu. These are the settings I used for the plain text layer: Blend Mode: Screen Opacity: 45% Noise: 0% Color: #b95bfb Technique: Softer Spread: 13% Size: 4px Range: 70% Jitter: 0% And this is how the fancy text layer differs: Opacity: 100% Size: 13% Range: 50% For the plain text layer, change the opacity to 60%, and the fill to 0%. For the fancy text layer, the opacity is 50%, and the fill is 0%. Step 10: Add a border. Create a new layer above the text layers. Press Ctrl+A to select the whole image. Select Edit, then Stroke from the top menu. In the new window, select the width and color. I chose 1px and black. Click OK. And voila! This was a more complicated signature, and it was even difficult for me to recreate it. I'm not sure if this is the exact order I did things, but I think it's close. If there's something that doesn't make sense, let me know, and I'll edit this post.

    [Tutorial] Text

    Tutorial: Text as requested by ba11ard This thread will show the different styles of text I use, and explain why I use them. I guess this could be considered more of an analysis than an actual tutorial. Style #1: "Label" A lot of times, the text I use is simply my username; this helps users quickly identify that this signature is mine, and prevents others from stealing. This is helpful in competitions, such as the SOTW contests. In the above case, the font is small, but still easily readable. Default fonts work well for this purpose; most fancy fonts get more difficult to decipher as they get smaller. Also, the opacity is turned down and blending options (such as multiply/screen/overlay) are used, to blend it into the background more. The text should be readable, but not over-powering, as to take away from the focus of the render. I FORGOT TO MENTION. The text should be near the render, but not on top of it (in most cases; sometimes it's unavoidable). This gives the signature a focal point. If the text was on one side and the render on another, the eye wouldn't know where to focus. Here are more examples of this type of text: For this one, I put the text layer underneath the bokeh texture to blend it. I don't normally set text on an angle like this (personal preference), but I thought it fit the signature, because there are so many definite lines of motion. More text styles coming soon!

  25. Next week's Signature of the Week marks Kametsu's 100th competition since the Graphics Team restarted the weekly contest in 2010! The contest will keep on going strong, don't you worry. However, after the 100th competition, some changes will be implemented. A new contest banner! It's similar to the current one, but I figured we could freshen things up a little. Pre-made signatures will now be allowed! This means that any signatures made for purposes other than Kametsu contests can be entered. Signatures previously entered in our SOTW competitions are still invalid entries. And watch out, I've got a pretty good memory. I will find you. Themes will be reset! I know some of the recent contestants have been complaining that all the good themes are taken. Well, your prayers have been answered! Starting with SOTW #101, all themes will be fair game! You're welcome. If anyone has any other suggestions to improve the competitions (or anything in the Graphical Division, for that matter), let any of the Graphics Team members (me or Apollo) know, and we'll take your ideas into consideration. One thing that always bothers me is closing the poll. Is deleting the poll the best way to go? The only other option would be to close the whole thread, and we've been asked before not to do that. So I don't even know. And also, thanks for all the time spent and hard work that everyone has put into these competitions. We couldn't keep them going without willing participants. So now that it's going on 4am, I'll catch you on the flipside.
