    ^IMO, if you don't have the time to post, you can always post later. :\

    I have a small desktop size too so doing large graphics (anything bigger than 600 pixels in width or height) will make me go frowny face since they're zoomed out and it just makes things look Photobucket-resized. XD; But 50% is better than 66.7%. Just annoying then cuz it's smaller, ahaha...

    BTW that wallpaper is adorable. ; A; I think it's "Rilakkuma" though but this thing is seriously cute. I hope it's okay if I use it on my own desktop. (even though it'll be small on it heehee)

    To answer my own question, I do like sans-serif fonts. Serif is soooooo yesterday, lmao. But in terms of applying these to graphics, it always depends on the type of work.

    Also welcome to the club Peters! Do share some of your works, even if new. There's always room for improvement. :D

    I don't share a lot of things but here's a banner I made as a dare:
    [​IMG]
    Link in case images are turned off or something.
    Sorry if it's a little shippy. OTL

    ... and regarding the mystery of the strange userbar, I tried a hand at it. Hope it's alright:
    [​IMG]

    [EDIT] Haha I just noticed there's an overworld missing on it. Lots of layers were corrupted or missing or whatever excuse Photoshop gave me.

  2. Regarding the art contest and a co-owner:
    What I'd propose we do is, host a contest, and let the winner of that contest be the co-owner. Pretty cool, right? Let Millarc host it and finally choose a co-owner to keep this **** active.

    I also have a question for you guys, that may differ per person.

    What is constructive criticism?

    Of course it is:
    But what exactly do you look for when knowing that what you're about to post has to be "constructive criticism".

    Aaand a little something something I spent way too much time on for the way it turned out:

    Also for the purpose of showing you I haven't lost (much) interest in design.

    You can turn indexed into RGB in Photoshop. You go to Image > Mode and choose RGB instead of index. At least that's what I think you mean.

    It's a really nice wallpaper, but too bad I don't know any of the characters on them :(
     
  4. Seems like no one can fix the userbar. AV couldn't get the colors, I was missing the Lyra sprite, and you're missing an overworld lol

    I hope its the LAST time I have to do it.

    Actually I realized that I didn't see the overworld. Whoops. Here's the finished product:

    But AudinoHunter seems to have it working better.

    Index to RGB doesn't do good on animated gifs because they still end up as one layer. There is a way to do it but I'll get back to you on that since I forgot. = w=;

    The idea sounds nice, pupin.

    What is constructive criticism?
    Harsh words that make me cry for days because no one likes my masterpieces.
    I'm not good at giving constructive criticism but I look for whether the piece of art is not eye bleeding and whether it flows right.

    ugh i spelt rilakkuma wrong. ;-; that makes me a sad panda. but i'm glad you liked it, and it's totally cool if you use it as your desktop. xD it sure won't fit mine. :p

    Mew_; the characters are from rilakkuma, a san-x creation. they have other very cute characters as well. :3

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rilakkuma

    What is constructive criticism?
    constructive criticism is me giving advice that ultimately ends up sounding mean. i try to be straight up honest whenever i give out criticism and if they don't appreciate it that's fine. i may not be an expert but i know a few things about image manipulation and i try and help people improve. things like image placement, colours, typography are what i critique the most..

    ^ your main issues seem to be lack of contrast, the text and fixing the blurriness on some of your banners.

    The thing I find with most Graphics Artists when they first start out is they try to use as many effects as possible, or just slap on effects without ctually thinking about it.
    Take your time to work with the image you have, don't cover it up, enhance it, blend it in with the banner as a whole, aim for a certain style or theme.

    Most importantly, take a step back and actually just look at what you've created so far - does it look good aesthetically or look how you imagined it would turn out to be [or better]

    Are we going to have a competition? I havn't seen any evidence of planning as such.

    I want to get better at graphics and it seems like this would be the place to do it. :3

    Perhaps a new banner for the club as a result of the competition?

    And just keep it going for about a week or so, then everyone will have a chance to make a banner :)

    Well prolly the pros like skiyomi will win lol
     
  17. ~Light

    ~Light Well-Known Member

    First of all, Skiyomi isn't in the club so winning is not an option ;)
    Second of all, that's not true. If you start the competition with that in your mind, then you shouldn't even bother entering ;).

    If you just do your best and make a nice banner everyone has a chance to win. :)

    Skiyomi isn't in the club...

    Anyway, it's not about winning, it's about having a go and improving your graphics and having fun and whatnot. Yay. Cue confetti.

    Hm, considering we have quite a decent-sized group, do you think it would be necessary/it would work to split the group up into two sections? For example, 'Amateur' and 'Experienced' or something? Or not. I don't know.

    I likely won't be able to participate in said competition due to my end-of-year exams coming up, and general busy-ness expected over the next four to five weeks so I won't be online much. But yeah.

    EDIT; beat. Ah well.

    PrismaticPrincessAnna I'll do my Lilliest

    On contests liek this.. do we have liek a theme to go with or do we do our own? :/
    It'll be my first time if we're gonna have a contest, nya~
     
  20. Please get a good judge for the contest.

    It's about showing others how much better you are than them and making them feel bad about themselves.

    It really is.
