    [ General Rules ]

    1. Minimum Post Amount - You must have at least 25 posts. That isn't too much to ask, right? If you don't, but you place a request anyway, we reserve the right to ignore it.
    2. Credits - Please credit [High~Light Studios] and/or the artist that took your request (if so, make sure you credit the right artist!) in your signature, preferably with a link. Be precise about this! If not, you might just get a ban from this shop.
    3. Multi-Requesting - Don't request in multiple shops. If you request in another shop after requesting here, your request will be cancelled. Repeatingly ignoring this rule might result in a ban.

    4. Patience - If you think we are taking too long on your request, don't start poking. Requests will never be ignored. If you see you are not on our list, feel free to send a PM.
    5. No Spam - Also don't spam with reactions on other people's banners, decklists, or whatever. It clutters the thread and will get you an infraction.
    6. Respect - Please be respectful. This one's easy.

    7. If you have questions, please ask them.


    [ The List ]

    We work with a list that we will post with every update.
    If you request, you will be put on the bottom of the list.
    We do however reserve the right to do the requests in whatever order we like, keeping as close to the list order as we can, but when an easy or appealing request comes up we might just feel like doing that one first. Don't worry, yours will be done too. We try to not do this too often and stick as close to the list as possible.

    One of our names behind the request ((Zaph); (SB4); etc.) indicates that that person will handle the request. No name behind your request; no need to worry. It will probably just be done without announcing who will be doing it.
    It's just a system for reserving requests.


    [ Requesting Guidelines ]

    1. Request here, in this thread, not via PM!
    2. Please tell us WHAT it is you want; avatar, signature banner, or something else. If you want a signature banner, please tell us what size it should be.
    3. Please be precise about what you want;
    3.1 If you want a "blended art banner"(multiple pictures, MTG artwork for ex.), please tell us in which order you want them to be. If not, we will do what we think looks good. If you do request a specific order, but it doesn't look good to us, we reserve the right to change the order. Also, please select a number of arts between 3 and 6(500x100-600x100) or 2 and 4(450x150).
    3.2 If you want text in your signature banner or avatar, please tell us where you want it to be. If not, we will do what we think looks good. If you do request a specific place for the text to be, but it doesn't look good to us, we reserve the right to change the placement.
    —3.3 If you want something else, be precise as well.
    4. If you want non-MTG-art-pictures in your banner, please provide these pictures yourself, or be very clear about what picture you want (this applies to unique pictures, a well-known album cover for example), although even in this case it would still be just as easy to attach it yourself.
    5. If you want a specific color/tone/mood, please tell us.


    [ What do we do right now? ]

    1. Signature banners
    2. Avatars
    3. Thread Banners
    4. Custom Sets and Custom Cards (FCC included)
    5. If you want something else done, just ask, though we can't guarantee we can do it.



    Signatures banners:
    600x100, 450x150, or smaller.
    Multilink banners.
    Outbordered/Partially transparant banners.
    "Bevel-Border" banners.
    "SE(Special Edition) Deck Banners"
    Explanation & Examples:

    Different sizes available include, but are not limited to the following examples. However, a signature banner can never be bigger than either 600x100 or 450x150 pixels.

    Image removed due to an invalid URL:

    Popular!

    Image removed due to an invalid URL:

    Popular!

    Image removed due to an invalid URL:

    Popular alternative if there's not enough material to make it 600x100.

    Image removed due to an invalid URL:

    An elegant alternative on the 450x150 kind. Best suited for just 1 piece of artwork.

    Note: We also do vertical banners (150x450 for example), but you are not allowed to use them as a signature banner on MTGSalvation.com
    The "Blended art" banner is a common type of banner you see all over the forums. It's a banner with different (MTG-)art blended into each other, often depicting a certain theme:

    Image removed due to an invalid URL:

    Rakdos theme


    Smokebraider and Spiraling Embers


    Azorius Theme


    (Also actually an SE deck banner)
    The multilink banner is a banner that has one or more clickable "buttons" that link to for example your extended signature, your clan, your moderator desk, your trade thread, or your own signature shop!
    They could look like this:


    Three links in "[...]"


    Yes, those three blueish things are the buttons!

    Image removed due to an invalid URL:

    Four links in one long "button".
    (Note: This is another example of an "outbordered/partially transparant" banner.


    These are banners that are not (entirely) rectangular.
    Let's just show examples:

    These banners have rectangular shapes, but there's something that "comes out of the border".



    Image removed due to an invalid URL:






    But these ones don't have a rectangular shape at all:
    Image removed due to an invalid URL:


    "Bevel-Border" banners are banners that look like they are 3D objects. It's just a simple touch of a 3D border:


    (Note: This is another example of a "blended art" banner)

    Image removed due to an invalid URL:
    Zaph's speciality. The special thing about these banners is the way they are made. To request, you must post a decklist. Then, I will make a banner, using artwork of cards from the deck. This way, I have freedom, and if you're lucky, the banners turn out spectacular:

    Image removed due to an invalid URL:

    "Threshold Sligh"


    "R/b"


    "Polymorph" deck


    Avatars:
    100x100(or 40.0Kb, whichever one is smaller)
    Simple animations (by Spiderboy4 & Mr. Stuff only).
    Outbordered/Partially transparant avatars.
    "Bevel-Border" avatars.
    Explanation & Examples:
    Just like the banners.


    (Note: This is also a "bevel-border" avatar.)



    Just like the banners.







    Thread Banners:
    -Extended Signatures
    -Moderator Helpdesks
    -Article Headers
    -Clan Banners
    -Custom Contests and Games
    -Colosseum

    -Usually 700 x 200 or an appropriate size given the request.

    A thread banner is a banner that depicts what the entire thread is about and is displayed before anything else. Requests will be handled delicately and we will ensure the highest quality work and will work until we get it right. Banners needed within a deadline will be moved to a higher priority.

    Please be as specific as you can and include all magic art that you want in the banner. If a specific order is needed, please tell us why, otherwise we will use our artistic visions and create something that looks good. If non-magic art is to be used, please attach or link all images, and any fonts that you want included should also be linked.
    Examples:
    Extended Signatures

    Moderator Helpdesks

    -Set Logos
    -Card Renders
    -FCC submissions

    resolution expansion symbol made.When requesting individual card renders, you must
    include everything from the art (or link), artist, collector number and a text version of your card. Be sure to give us the final version of the card you want rendered.

    Ai, totally sweet.
    I'd like to see what you can do with Garruk.
    I don't have any text I want on there what so ever, you could however smack a Lorwyn logo/symbol.

    Go wild Smile

    [I would like it to be quite flat and stretched although I know that that is REALLY hard.]

    That is, off course, what Garruk's all about Wink

    I'll see what I can do for you Smile

    EDIT:

    How 'bout this:


    Here's a darker version, which I think looks better:

    Could you make me an avvy/sig combination using the cover art of The Dark Side of the Moon from Pink Floyd? Much appreciated if you could. I don't care how you do it really,as long as the prism is featured somehow and as long as it looks cool.
    Quote from Zyrakris
    You realize that all we're seeing is rares, right? And obviously all they're gonna be revealing are the good rares at first, right? Then we'll have a week full of nothing but crap, and that's when we'll get a hundred thousand people saying "OMFG THIS IS THE WURST SET EVAR".

    Sorry, but I must ask you to provide a picture yourself. If someone tells me "Garruk", or "Dark Side of the Moon by Pink Floyd", I don't have much choice in pictures. But this is different. I can't work without pictures, you see.


    > [Currently working on shadow_agent's request]

    EDIT: Done


    I took the liberty of entering some quotes from
    "Brain Damage", I've attached that version as well. It looks better without it though.

    If you could do a 600x100 SIG featuring Loxodon Hierarch with The Nick written in it, I'd really apprciate it.

    If you read the rules stated in the first post, I'd really appreciate it as well. Is that so?
  • #14
    Right. 5 posts. I'll get right on that.

    TY to Zaphod from High~Light Studios
  • #15
    I don't want to call everyone with 5 or less posts a "request 'n runner", but I just would like to see the result of my work, "the fruits of labor", you see Smile

    So I don't like people who never come back after making less than 10 posts or so.

    Furthermore, I think I'm going to up the minimum a little. I'll take your request at 5 The Nick, but in the future, you will need 10 posts.

    Also, robotmonkey's request is cancelled 'till he/she comes back with 10 posts and a pic.

    Hey I was wondering if you could do me a SIG 600x100.

    I'm a recent graduate of West Virginia University and I would like mountaineers to be the theme of it. So I was thinking maybe incorporate the Goblin Mountaineer picture and Goblin Piledriver picture, a picture of our flying WV (below), and maybe a picture of our mascot (below). I'm no artist so I don't know if this all is going to work, so I'll leave it up to you (if your even going to do it). If all else fails, a goblin theme would make me very happy. Thanks!

    I'll see what I can do. What picture for the Mountaineers would you like? Also, at the moment, I think the logo could make it but the mascot probably won't, since I'm afraid it won't blend right, mainly because of it being B&W(and I can't color with photoshop ;))
  • #18
    Idk about the mountaineer pic, both pictures look like pretty plain goblins, maybe the orcish settlers picture would get the whole mountaineer idea across better.

  • #20
    Ok guys, I had to do it with the information you gave me, and this is the result. Both have become 500x100 instead of 600x100, cause there would be to much open space left if I had.

    Tell me what you think. If you want something changed, please say so.

    Glad to see you like it Smile But could you make the words "High~Light Studios" in your sig link to this page? Thanks Smile

    EDIT: I know I said "this page", but I meant "this thread" actually; the first page. Thanks in advance Smile

    Can you make me a sig size 600x100?

    I was thinking an Adarkar Valkyrie/Avatar of Woe sig. Any text you think would look good is fine, I was thinking life/death, balance of powers kind of thing. Thanks Zaphod!

    Hi I was wondering could you design me a wolf banner and avvy. Mine are nice but its just i want something a little more realistic similar to some of your banners with wolves on your extended sig. Something with a wolf howling at the moon would be cool but i leave artistic creativity in your hands. Also do include the text "The Wolves of Fenris" on the banner. One last thing. Do i need to find some art are do you think you can find some great wolf images? Thanks Zaphod.
