[Selling] Avatars - No new orders til I catch up

My own avatar was created from a sketch that I scanned. All future avatars will be done this way they seem to turn out better. 100x100 & 80x80, poe delievered in the diamond arc. *Price depends on the amount of finite detail that is needed to produce the image ye desire. Usually 5,ooo poe for a square avatar.







Now taking limited orders on the Portrait Style 100x150 & 150x150. Which includes matching 80x80 and matching 100x100. For all yer Forum needs. =) Usually 10,ooo poe




What ye get : 100 pixels x 100 pixels Piratename.gif size under 8KB
80 pixels x 80 pixels Piratename80.gif size under 6KB

I draw the graphics at 100 x 100 on high zoom in Photoshop. By starting the drawing at the specific size required for an avatar ye get the highest detail possible. I also adjust the number of colors when I convert to the .gif on a file by file basis. So if I can get ya 125 colors versues 100 and stay under the size requirements, I will.

What I need from Buyers : Most players want their pirate depicted in an avatar. (Screenshots always help) If ye want yer character I need to know which shade of skin ye have. There's like seven or something? Like bleach white, the pinky tone just above white, the orangeish my pirate went to a tanning booth tone, that purdy perfect tan, then a step just above that, and finally charcoal. (?may have missed one?)

Lads : Which hair cut do ye have? Do ye have any type of faicial?
Lasses : Same which haircut do ye sport?

Clothing : Yer outfit doesn't have to be one yer pirate owns. Pick that dream design that ye will never afford, but gotta have. I also do non game outfits within reason. Any pictures or links to what ye are looking for is helpful. We can also arrange a time in-game to meet and I can take the screenshot. If ye wish to be wearing clothes ye can not afford find a rack that has what ye are looking for. We can go to that shop and take the picture with ye trying it on so I have a refferance.

Nudies : I will not do full nakies under any circumstances. Tushies seem fine to me so if ye gotta have ye full moon drawn I am game. If ya just feel the need to be one with nature I will draw it, but objects will be strategically placed to cover bits. Oh and sorry boys but I need tack on an extra 1000 poe for bare chests, cause dudes bodies are a pain to draw!

Props : Familars, Text, yer weapon, let me know if there is anything extra ye need added.

I can draw non pirate avatars too. Just let me know what ye want.

Back By Popular demand, my older avatar creations. /me hiding now lol!

Re: [Selling] Avatars - No new orders til I catch up

While I will not be purchasing an avatar, since I think I still owe scupperer my life for this one, I just want to say:

Merridian, I have watched your artwork progress for a long time on this forum, in many threads, some of which I couldn't post in, like Nemo's themed ones. Anyway, your drawing has progressed dramatically. You took all the suggestions people made, stuck with it, and just got so good at drawing. Your current avatar, and the other examples you make, are simply gorgeous, and anyone would be lucky to buy an avatar from you for a mere 2000 POE.

Congrats, both on becoming so talented, and on offering such a nice service to the Y!PP community.

And I really really like your current avatar. Really.

Re: [Selling] Avatars - No new orders til I catch up

I can definitely use an Avatar. I can get ye some screenshots of my character but will need help finding away to deliver them to ye.

Other than that, a constellation filled sky and my beloved ships' helm should do.

Thanks much

Re: [Selling] Avatars - No new orders til I catch up

Ye can email me screenies at Shandryl2@hotmail.com or post em here.

Goodwin I just need a picture of ye if ye can tell me what yer huny's ship looks like. I think I can fit 2 - 3 actual constellations in a sky. Tell me if ye want any specific ones.

Re: [Selling] Avatars - No new orders til I catch up

I've got to agree with ramiro - your art is wonderful, and I love your current avatar. You do very good pictures of people with their swords - in fact, that made me change my mind from my original thought.

Here's what I want:

A picture of me, sitting down, with my knees to my chest, holding a scimitar (green/blue) across my shins. Sitting on the deck of a ship is fine. Does this make sense? I'm curled up, sort of smiling, behind my scim. My hair is hanging down, except for what's under my hat.

Outfit: this one. It's also a screenie of me.

Thank you! Please let me know if you have any questions.

Re: [Selling] Avatars - No new orders til I catch up

Ok Fujiko just on the deck was somewhat uninteresting. Can ye be seated on the cot that is in the captain's room on a brig?

Nuro huny- these are paying our rent at the weavery. And I promise if any of em turn out cuter than yers I will make ye a new one. Now if ye don't be good and let me earn some PoE I am going to change that dirk in yer avatar to a lobster! Let's see ya slap X with that!

Re: [Selling] Avatars - No new orders til I catch up

Cool I get off work at 5 pm PST and will try yo be in game by 6 pm. I like to try to keep my poe as close to winter or alpha as possible. Oh and the sketches should be scanned and posted up by all of yer pending names by the weekend. I have been running em through my folks scanner, but erm my "surprise" Bday gift, on friday is a flatbed of my very own. Yippe!

Remember they are just sketches and don't quite pop yet.

Talonder- one dont freak that yer pirate isn't in the sketch, my sharpie couldn't handle that small. The boat was the tuff part anyhow. Still need to know what color the posts are on the ship railing I wanna get the colors right. Also I got to go check what yer clothes look like ingame. I am not so farmiliar with the boy clothes lol.

Yaten- is the apron a chef thing or smithing? I went with chef cause it was sooo cute. Oh and that tuban was a pain let me tell ya. I am however very excited to do the shading on it.

Fujiko- Thank ye, that idea was a blast to draw. I fought the urge to give ye a teddy bear, but I threw a map in the shot so ye won't miss yer old avatar too much. Yer sword doesn't have a hilt yet cause well I gotta look up what they look like.

Hehe, I don't really know what the apron is supposed to be representing. They're cheap :D. I suppose if ye wanted a head-on shot of a turban, I could've directed ye to my current avatar.

Thanks again! I can't wait to see it.

No problem! :) I love avatars, and plan to let mine peacefully coexist, using all three. (I have a third coming.) The Equinox board is cool with their requirements, because there I can make a Fujiko montage.

/em mumbles, and ok, I love teddy bears too. I probably would have died laughing had you thrown that in.

Re: [Selling] Avatars - No new orders til I catch up

Thanks Broctann! Oh Linsha and Xephin if ye want on the list I got to know what ye want. And sloops are always prefered to PoE! I will be laughing all the way to the dock with a huge grin if ye actually give me a boat for it. I will do ye a big one like 300 x 300 size as well since a sloop is way more than 2k.

Looking for fujiko Hers is done but I want her to see before I post.
