Welcome to Evergreen Studios, the newest graphics studio to hit MTGS.
- Spanglegluppet (avatars, banners, other graphics)
At the moment I am not looking for new staff, so please don't PM me asking if you can join my shop. In the future I may need help, so I will post an announcement here asking for help with the shop.
WHAT WE CAN DO FOR YOU
Avatars must be a maximum size of 100x100 pixels. They may have animation, but make it a fairly simple animation, one that I can do and one that can fit under 40 KB. No seizure-inducing or overly annoying animations are allowed.
- Sig banners
Sig banners must be a maximum size of 600x100 pixels or 450x150 pixels. They are not allowed animation. When requesting a sig banner, please be specific on what content you would like in it, and the style. (see below) If you would like your sig a certain size (600x100 or 450x150), please specify - if not, I'll make it to whatever dimensions I see fit.
- Other banners
Here we also make other banners, i.e. for clan threads, extendo-sigs, other threads, or other websites or purposes. Please be specific around what size you would like - if you do not specify, I will make it around 750x200 pixels, or whatever I see fit. You are allowed animation, but make sure the animation is fairly simple so I can do it. This includes article banners - you can post here as normal if you require a banner for an article, or PM me if you wish to keep the article's contents private.
- Other graphics
I'm willing try my hand at logos, headers, and other designs. Just ask and I'll see what I can do. Be sure to be specific.
When requesting graphics, especially sig banners, you should make sure to specify what kind of style you would like your work done in. If you don't specify, I will choose one myself, but for the best results and to make you as happy as possible with the end result, you should let me know. The styles I can do are:
- Blended art
The traditional choice for banners, blended art banners contain a number of (usually five or so) arts, blended and merged together on the one banner, usually with text over the top. The tradition is MTG card art, but any art can be used. If you want me to use non-MTG art, please provide all art. Just a link to an image of the internet will be fine, but please don't make me search for images just because you didn't provide them.
There are two main styles of abstract banners - single-art focus banners and abstract brushing banners. For single-art focus banners, give me one piece of art (MTG or non-MTG - link to all non-MTG art) and I will create a banner focusing on that art by using brushes, filters, and any other Photoshop techniques. Text is optional. For abstract brushing banners, I will create a banner using no art but merely Photoshop brushes, filters, and techniques. In that case, please specify the colour(s) and any other effects and text that you would like. Feel free to throw me some words such as vibrant, minimalistic, etc., and I will use that in your banner.
And if you were interested in any other style specifically, let me know and I'll see if I can give it a try.
Here are some examples of my work:
- Sig banners
- Other banners
Click on User Control Panel, near the top of the page, and click on Edit Avatar. I will give you the link to the avatar itself, so copy-paste that into the field provided.
- Sig banners
Click on User Control Panel and then click on Edit Signature. I will give you the URL of the banner in [simg] tags, so just copy-paste that, including the tags, into your sig. Do not rehost the banner yourself via the forum's uploading software - I save my images as .png's with maximum quality, and therefore the filesize is usually too big for the forum. It will work fine though if you use the link provided.
It would be appreciated if you credited the shop in your sig. I'm not doing these graphics for publicity, but it would be nice to get a few more requests. Also it would be nice if you would actually use the graphics that I have provided for you, instead of just forgetting about them. Thanks!
Remember my desktop screenshot here? Well I wanted to improve this black and blue futuristic look. The actual wallpaper is in the attachment. Those cool gear edges(from the screenshot at the link) are from my internet client Samurize.
Can you improve the black and blue futuristic look of it? Thanks.
Or maybe you can just make me a new variation..^_^
Welcome backs Spanglegluppet. I still am using my B/W life banner you did for me and I was wondering if you could make me a new one. I just top 4 regional with my black white Korlash control deck. If you could make a banner that says Black White Korlash control. Images that could be included are Damnation, Korlash, Angel of Despair, Skeletal Vampire, Debtors' Knell, Dimir House Guard, mortify, ect. I don't need them all, just do whatever looks good. Thanks man and good luck with the shop.
