Yer Avatars Are Bready! Reply to this Post

Okay, so maybe My attempt at an interesting shoppe name has failed...
Ahoy!

I'm Paneity, and I make avatars for the doubloon oceans! I will soon start taking take payment on all the doubloon oceans as Paneity. I'm new to this, so my work will get better, and faster as I get more practice. Also, I will be experimenting with different styles so keep watching this space!

Here are some avatars I have created:



I am aware they look like they came from a portrait, but that could be a bonus right? So as they look like they're from a portrait, you can use a standard portrait background and it won't look too out of place. However If you want a custom background, I can make you one for a small extra charge (when I decide on a price).

So, to get the ball rolling, I'll offer 2 free avatar/portraits to two people of different genders. This is to practice both. In exchange for the freeness, I'd like you to tell me how much you'd pay for an avatar of the quality I make you. Darn, too slow! Still, buy 'em while they're hot!

In fact, all pricing suggestions are very welcome!

WishKnight:

If you'd rather have another background:


Cerikio, I couldn't remember what you looked like, and lost the screenshot. I believe you wanted blue trousers though:

I'm afraid I couldn't think of a witty idea for yours, so if you think of one I can add it along with a background.

Also Feedback is very welcome, on the quality, and pricing of the pictures.

By the by everybody, The people don't have to be in a standard portrait pose, or wearing standard portrait clothes. They can be like other avatars, but in a portrait style. (if that makes sense)

Its cute :) Thanks! Coupla points I would like to make though, just my opinions:

It would be good if you resized and cropped an avatar the right size for these forums, which is 150x150. It makes it more convenient for people if they always get an avatar too.

They are great, but I think they need refining a little. Just tiding up a few edges, making it match; Just doing that could bump the price up.

If you are making these in MSpaint, it might be worth sticking some kinda trial graphic program on your computer, or even downloading a free one. My friend and I make avatars too, (I do the main graphics, she sells and helps me with ideas. Neither of us are good as muffins, as WishKnight should know.) and we use a trial version of a program. Only a 30 day, but I think I can do a bit of persuasion technique with my Mum. The look pretty good!

I would say start the price about 2k. Increase if you get a load of orders.

Hope this helps! Thanks again!

This is probably occurring because he is using MSPaint. If he is in MSPaint and using the resizing tool by hand, it will cause the lines to get more pixellated.

I suggest getting Photoshop, I use that one quite frequently. If you don't know how to use the program, I'd be willing to help you mate, just give me a PM.

I believe your avatars are worth at least 2k.

Bah, I don't like Gimp, i don't like the fact you have to keep switching between windows...
Photoshop works well though, and I'd be please to help you in anyway needed. I know what the tools are and do, I just lack the artistic ability to do something with them...
