We're adding Demo to the Talkhaus header (artists needed)

Postby spitznagl » 5 years ago

Rena agreed to add Demo fanart to the top of the Talkhaus. The plan is to have all the worthwhile submissions displayed at random.
RenaBeach wrote:... have them make something small to go next to the logo in that big empty middle-void ...
Some common sense rules;
- Your drawing must be of Demo.
-140 pixels high. Don't make it overlap with the navigation bar.
-Preferably not wider than 140 pixels to keep it somewhat discreet.
-Keep the background transparent and send me a PNG file.
-Different art styles are obviously a desirable thing for the sake of variety, but your drawing might not be used if your style is half-assed MS paint.
-I hope raocow is ok with this.

I personally think that we should keep the entries secret and add them all at once, but it's up to you I guess. I declare the end of January as the limit date just to make sure not to drag this for too long, but more drawings could probably be added later.

Yes that's the idea. I'll make sure that they are all the same size before I send them to Rena.

You can also post it here if you can't resist the urge.

I really wish I had my tablet but I could always hand-pixel something.

edit: I thought that we had a discussion about thing a while back and it was decided against adding anything to the talkhaus header.

:s I just made it a bit bigger. I can remove your avatar from the preview image if you don't feel like drawing a tile.

Always yapping about your goddamn tablet :lol: ! Ok, I've never used a tablet before and I can imagine how one must develop their working method around it. For the past ten years I've drawn curves with series of short straight lines by holding shift in paint shop pro. If I ever end up buying one at some point, I probably wouldn't want to look back as well.

Do you remember in which thread the previous header discussion took place?

...I suppose I have been, whoops. It's not my fault I don't have a lot of my stuff right now, and my tablet is included in that!
I used to pixel stuff by hand, and it's doable, it's just my wrist gets sore easily, which is why I prefer my tablet. I know people have taught themselves to art with a mouse, and I give them props for that. It's honestly easier to pixel with a tablet for me, but a mouse is still doable, just slower.

No, I don't. I thought it was in suggestions, and I skimmed part of the graveyard, but I didn't see it in either place.
Maybe it was lost in the talkhaustrophe, but I'm not sure. I can't recall when it was posted.
Yay for bad memory!

I have a couple of questions. Does it have to be a PNG? Like, if I were to make an animated GIF with a couple of frames that was still transparent and the right size, would that be okay?
Are you guys okay with someone making more than one and submitting them?

I thought about this for mine and decided not to do it. I just wanted to have a discreet glowing effect, but I feel that even something simple like that could be too distracting. You can ask Rena if you want. I'm just taking care of the submissions to save her some time.

I personally think that one per person is enough. Including mine, we already have 8 Demos, so it's not like we need anyone to make multiples and one of the cool aspects about this is the variety of styles.

Alright. I don't think my idea would be too distracting but I don't want to start it and find out I shouldn't do it. I think I'll go ask Rena about it.

Okay, I kinda figured as such, but I wanted to make sure.

question wrote:animated GIF?
For anyone wondering, Rena said that " it's okay as long as it's tasteful and not too annoying". I'm not the final judge though, so do it at your own risk.

Since GIFs don't support semi-transparency, you won't be able to shade the outer edges. There's always the possibility that the background might change in the future, so color shading isn't a good idea if you want your image to be portable.
FluffiMasta wrote:Just in case before I get my hopes up, is this considered "half-assed MS paint"?
Your card was a lovely gift. The Santa Demo was a great idea and I wouldn't call your drawing "half-assed" in that context. This exact style would probably clash with the surrounding cleaner graphics of the Talkhaus though.

A solid colors drawing with no outlines like that could work, but it would need to have cleaner lines and some solid colors shading to make it look less bland. A good method is to make your image a couple times larger (4x+) and downscale it once your done. It's a lot easier to edit that way, it shades your edges for you and you can get away with small curve imperfections. I could resize it myself if you don't have a software with different resizing algorithms.

I feel that you should be able to do something good and I'd be happy to help if you need.

Thanks for the tips, I'll see what I can do (though the chance that it will turn out good is highly unlikely)

I got 13 so far. The plan was to wait until the end of January, but I'll send them to Rena now instead since I only received two this month.

I would guess that It must be pretty trivial for Rena to add additional images, so you could probably still send me yours at any point.
