Ace of Spades Studio

    Welcome to Ace of Spades Studio!

    Background and What I Do
    For those of you who are regular avatar/sig shop posters, I was part of Five-Handed Lizard Shop just last month when my Photoshop crashed. I just re-installed it and got all of the issues and bugs worked out, so I'm able to start making signatures again! I am currently a freshman in college, so my work load is heavy. I have time to make signatures, but I can't be expected to turn out a signature every night, although, I'll try and get them as fast as I can. If you post and haven't seen a result in a day or two, don't worry. It's being worked on, but school is a priority.

    Basically, I can make three different things:
    1. Signatures (450x150 or 600x100)
    2. Avatars (100x100, simple animations or static)
    3. Primer Headers and Large Banners (no size restrictions)

    Rules of Requesting and General Knowledge
    -To make a request, I have a minimum post requirement of 20 posts. Those with less than this can still post, but I won't work on the request until you get at least 20 posts.
    -Please, please, PLEASE be specific when posting. A signature with Chandra, Jace, and Sorin is very vague. Chandra the Firebrand, Jace Beleren, and Sorin Markov is a much more appropriate post.
    -Along with this, if there is any other specific orientation of artwork, styles, or other requests that you have, I need to know about them to make your artwork the way you want it.
    -Please provide image links to the cards and which edition you would like. Some cards (Counterspell, for example) have multiple arts. Let me know which one you would prefer.
    -For signatures, please keep the number of card arts in the 1-4 range. Too many cards can result in a cluttered looking signature and others won't be able to see what cards are there. For Banners, no more than 6 card arts.
    -If you would like, I will take requests or any questions about specific requests by PM.
    -Please remember to credit. It's really frustrating when I take time to make a signature, and nobody knows who it's by. This doesn't have to be an elaborate credit, but I would like people to know where the signatures are coming from. A simple, but effective example would be: 'Sig by Ace of Spades Studio'

    -NO MULTI-POSTING!!!! If you post the SAME REQUEST in more than one studio (including Ace of Spades) your request will be ignored. It is a waste of each artists time if we are all making the same sig for one person. I hate to bold and capitalize this, but it's really annoying and honestly rude. Thanks.

    Signatures To Do
    -Order
    -Snafujammer
    -Checkbox
    -Cinder
    -whitemage


    Signatures-






























    Avatars-


    Primer Banners-














    Happy Posting! Smile

    Would you mind making me a 600x100 sig with the picture I've attached, and on the right somewhere have it say: For the Greater Good.

    Thanks!

    Was wondering if you could make a sig involving the following two cards:
    Trostani, Selesnya's Voice and Chorus of the Conclave. Possibly with both the Selesnya markings on the sides (Not required, only if you think it looks good), with the text "You will be assimilated" on it? Would be very much appreciated, thanks.
    Commander Decks:
    Rakdos Rakdos Rakdos Lyzolda, the Sacrifice Witch Rakdos Rakdos Rakdos
    Simic Simic Simic Prime Card Drawer Zegana Simic Simic Simic
    Orzhov Azorius Dimir Oloro, Lifegaining Ascetic Dimir Azorius Orzhov
    Gruul Gruul Gruul Stonebrow, Trampling Hero Gruul Gruul Gruul
    red mana red mana red mana Purphoros, God of Pandemonium red mana red mana red mana

    Sure thing! I'll have some time to work on it later today/ tomorrow.

    Edit: Done!



    I didn't think that the Selesnya symbol really fit. I apologize for the Chorus's resolution. There are literally no high res images with it. Hope you like it!

    Hey! I'm looking for a Primer Banner for Standard Battle of Wits.

    The only archetype-defining card in this deck is Battle of Wits itself, so I guess using all three edition's art would be appropriate. I also think it would be cool to include a close-up of the actual rules text of the card "At the beginning of your upkeep, if you have 200 or more cards in your library, you win the game." Possible captions include a plain title ("Battle of Wits") and maybe some flavour ("Because bigger is better" or simply "Bigger is better").

    Feel free to include as many of those elements as you feel is appropriate, using whatever style you think is best. You're the artist, so I trust your concept ideas more than my own!

    Thanks.

    I'm having a hard time getting a good sig, mostly because the old place I used to request from is closed, and my MS paint skills only go so far.

    Could I request:

    600 x 100 signature, with the following details:

    1. Azorius Guild Watermark
    2. Judge's Familiar
    3. Syncopate
    4. The words "Go ahead and tap out for that bonfire, no worries bro"
    5. My username, "shinbatsu" (all lower case, just like my current sig)

    I'd like the Judge's Familiar to be the focus, background and other elements I leave up to your artistic genius.

    Standard -------- No thanks, not interested in losing money once a year
    Modern ---------- Budget BG Pod (spending no more than $75 to build)
    Commander ---- Called it quits. For a "casual" format it's not very casual

    I've got good news and bad news.

    The good news is:


    The bad news is that I couldn't really incorporate the rules text. It looked really out of place, and just getting the text blown up to fit the space resulted in it looking UBER pixely and low-res. I hope you like it! When you put it in the primer, can you send me a link? Smile

    Wanted to say I really like your art! I realize I'm not at 20 posts yet but I'm working on it. :p

    could I request a 600 x 100 signature?

    With:
    1. Jace, Architect of Thought
    2. Hollowed fountain (RTR version)
    3. Entreat the angels.
    4. The words: "Making miracles happen every day. . ."

    I would be less shy about posting with one of your awesome pieces below my posts. And I would of course give you credit. =]
