GRAPHICS SHOP Free Image Mods, Banners, and Blueprints

Discussion in 'MEDIA SHOPS & REQUESTS' started by firejay1, Sep 26, 2016.

  1. So what would a Graphics Shop be without a little pizzazz~?

    [​IMG]
    Welcome to my Graphics Shop! You can obviously see my name, but I'll do the banal thing and introduce myself anyways. I am firejay1, though pretty much everyone leaves off the 1, and as the title states, I do free image modifications, banners, headers, and yes, blueprints. This is my first time doing a shop and boy am I excited.

    Now. First thing's first, of course, you have to get a glimpse of what it is I can do before deciding whether or not you want me to work on your stuff, don't you?

    Be aware that if I'm especially proud of it, I will add your request to these samples unless you specifically ask me not to.

    1. I have no form. Request what you want in as much detail as you want, and do it in one shot if possible (please don't spam my thread with too many multiple posts if you can help it).
    2. I won't look up character pics from a description, though I will from a face claim.
    3. Tell me if you want me to change anything.
    4. I can't do drawings.
    5. If you want a blueprint, do please read the paragraph below that starts with the aquamarine text.
    6. Don't expect your request quicker than two weeks.
    7. I will display samples of the work I do for you unless you ask me not to.
    8. Don't ever PM me for a request. Ever.
    9. You may request multiple items at once, or come back and ask me for more stuff after I've finished your first request. I don't have a limit.
    10. Don't ask me if I'm open. I'm always open. ;)



    [​IMG]
    So in case you haven't noticed, I do not have a "form" for you to fill out. This is because I don't care what you want. Just kidding. The reason I don't have a form is because I actually enjoy doing things from scratch. If you have a very specific idea in mind, feel free to mention that you want certain color schemes, images, themes, catchphrases, genres, heck describe precisely what you want in morbid detail if you like, but I DO NOT REQUIRE IT. I do, of course, ask that you tell me everything that you want (and I mean EVERYTHING), but be aware that otherwise I will exert all of my creative freedom without bounds. I love to experiment with different styles and am constantly changing, so if you give me a non-specific request, you may find that I have done something different from my old works, and I am just going to consider that my right as an artist. The only thing I will not do is look up character photos for you from a description. I can work with face claims. If you only give me a face claim, I will freely search for pictures of them. But don't tell me "I want my character to be a pale-faced guy with blue hair" cause I don't want the aggravation of trying to decide exactly what KIND of pale-faced guy with blue hair you're thinking of. Be aware that I appreciate writing samples or descriptions of your character's personality or of your RP as it helps me get a better feel for what I'm gonna do, but again, not necessary.

    Unless your request is very simple or very specific, I will typically do multiple different types and kinds of the same banner or header and will offer all of the multiples to you (this does not apply for simple image mods and the blueprints). If you don't like some, you don't have to use it, just keep the one you like. If you like all of them, feel free to rotate them, or do whatever you like with them. Point is, once I've done them, they're all yours to do with as you will. I will also provide you a coding box with the links in it for your convenience, and these will include smaller versions of the work if they are rather big normally. I will put these in this thread unless you specifically ask I PM them to you for privacy or whatever, you don't have to tell me the reason. I would like it very much if you tell me if there is something that you do not like or appreciate, and am perfectly willing to make changes. I like honesty, not flattery.

    ~ The blueprints are a special thing that I offer. ~ I know this is labeled a graphics shop, but I will actually NOT do the blueprint on the computer unless you specifically ask me to do so. I hand-draw all of my blueprints on graph paper (one square = one square foot), and what you will receive is a picture or scan of that drawing. Blueprints are not drawings of the house or anything like that, I cannot draw to save my life. Instead, they will be bird's eye views of the interior structure of the house. Rooms, furniture, stairs, the house or building to scale. You are allowed to be as specific or non specific with descriptions of these as well, but I am not going to do more than one version of the blueprint, though you can still ask me to change things. If you want a digital version of this particular item, I will design the blueprint first by hand, then transfer it into a simple program that will not only give you a simple blueprint, but also a visual of what the house interior would look like. I use SweetHome 3D or HomeByMe, both of which have only outdated and ugly furniture and nothing good in the way of roofs, so I do not guarantee stylistic beauty, only proportion consistency.

    I have a life. I am a college student of rather average grades in an extremely difficult school and an extremely difficult major in that extremely difficult school. I have to work hard to do well, and will always put my real life first. When I am not in class, I work in a lab every weekday and it is not unusual for me to get home after 7 most days. I don't have a 9-5 life, I have an 8-7 life. I greatly enjoy requests (like, really really really REALLY love them) and feel like just the practice and experience is worth it, which is why I offer them completely for free, but I can not guarantee that they will always be quick. If you need something before the weekend, I do advise you look elsewhere because I usually can only get to these requests on the weekend, if that. Since I put any work someone requests of me on high priority, I will usually get them to you in two weeks or less, unless it is during midterm/finals season, in which case I will warn you, and you may have to wait a bit longer. I can usually get simple RP ads, headers, or image modification requests (change in eye color, etc) out in a few days, but character banners and blueprints will often take me the full two weeks, as it requires me to sit down and work seriously for hours, often taking me a whole day. Digital blueprints will take me much longer as the software is clunky and slow on top of the time it takes me to design it out in the first place.


    Also, since a couple of people have asked me this, I thought I should just add that I do not have a limit on the number of items you can ask for. Of course, if a lot of people are asking me for stuff and you ask for characters banners for three different characters and five different RP Ad banners, I may warn you that I will lower the priority for your stuff simply because the quantity is so large I would rather be able to work on other people's simpler items first. That said, I don't expect anyone to be asking me for that number of stuff and it doesn't worry me excessively that that might happen. Feel free to ask for more than one item at a time, and also feel free to come back and ask me for another item long after I've finished working on any of your stuff. Heck, you could come to me every month and ask for a new one for as long as I'm on this site and running this shop. No guarantees that it'll be quick, but I won't say no to anything in terms of QUANTITY, though I do reserve the right to refuse to do something I don't want to do. Until I decide to close this shop for good, my doors are open to anyone and everyone.

    And lastly, DO NOT SEND ME PM'S. I ask that you post all requests here in this thread, so that I can keep this thread current and my inbox clean. If you send me a PM for a request I will ignore your request flat-out without response and leave the conversation. If you do it more than once, I will blacklist you => I won't ever work on your stuff and I also will refuse to roleplay with you outside of bumping into you in a group RP I do not GM. I will also not accept you into any group roleplays I may or may not run. No exceptions. No warnings. I know this sounds a little extreme, but this is because I like people to actually put the effort into READING the things I write when it is relevant. So the same rule applies if you prove to me that you did not at least read the overview. Yes, I know the paragraphs are a lot to read, and it's okay if you screw up here and there, miss something, ask me a silly question, but trust me I can tell when people have flat-out not read my instructions, descriptions, rules, and I deeply do not appreciate it. Don't ask me to draw anything, don't tell me you want Victorian furniture in your digital blueprint, don't ask me to get it done in less than two weeks, do not ask me if I have a form to fill out, and don't just try to describe your character to me. If you can avoid those things, we're solid.

    I probably sound scary and picky af, rn, but I am a pretty friendly person, so do feel free to just ask me questions, check in on your request, or send me a PM if you want to chat. I would also actually prefer that you describe your request in a conversational manner, as it puts me at ease (the other reason I don't have a form). Just please don't spam the thread too much, as a matter of consideration for me. I'm the type who is almost always on Iwaku (even when I shouldn't be), so I'll usually respond to posts, requests, etc, within 24 hours :) Thanks!

    Sincerely,

  3. I wanna learn this type of editting
     
  4. So. Having completed these requests so late, I was contemplating whether or not to give them to you guys, but decided to anyways in case you decide to try rebooting your threads. If I may, though, it may also be good to pretty up the layout of your RPs and add more plot details as well to help draw people. :) Again, I'M SORRY FOR THE DELAY. IT'S REALLY KIND OF NOT OKAY HOW LONG I TOOK ON ALL THESE REQUESTS.

    If you would like any edits made, I will absolutely guarantee them within 48 hours. If I don't make the deadline you can make up some ridiculous punishment for me. XD

    @Daz. I know you didn't need yours this early, but I was working on banners in bulk and yours was easy to find inspiration for. I know you had a couple specific images in mind and I did use one of the images provided, but I also took the liberty of finding my own for the other one. Uhh. But I'm putting it under spoilers in case it's kinda too psychedelic for... ppl. I couldn't set the delay well enough to make it creepy, but not psychedelic. I may attempt to work on slowing it down a little once I get JadedWaifu's banners done.

    @Flannel. Thanks for your kind words. If you have any requests, don't hesitate to hit me up here. (Though, as you can tell, I'm not always very good about doing things on time)

    @CherrieCafe. I'm not really sure what kind of editing you're referring to, because I do a number of things. :) Besides which, most of what I do is a lot of cut and paste, nothing much special, but if you have any question or stuff, feel free to shoot me a PM with whatever questions you might have. This kind of stuff is actually pretty easy to learn.

  6. Thanks a bunch! I won't be using them for while yet, but I definitely will use them when I run the RP. They look really good~.
     
  7. @firejay1 Soooo, I want to request something else if that's okay? Could I ask you to draw out some blue prints for me? It's for the same RP I'm planning, so no time pressure.
     
  8. OH MY GLOB YES. NO ONE HAS EVER ASKED ME FOR THE BLUEPRINTS AND I LOVE THOSE. Describe~
     
  9. AHH, IM GLAD TO SEE YOU EXCITED! I need a couple of days to decide what exactly I want on each floor (I'm going to want several floors), but I'll give you a rough idea of what I'll want for now!

    >Firstly, the building will be a boarding school for extremely talented students. So expect to include things dorms and subject specific rooms.
    >This is the map from the original game. While I don't want the same exact rooms, it gives more of an idea of the type of thing I want. That includes one or two secret areas!
    >Speaking of secret areas... If I request an area with a secret room on, I would like a copy of the area with and without that room. With for my own reference, without to show the players.
    >In the original game after every murder trial a new floor is unlocked. However I believe this will lead to there being too many rooms to explore for evidence in the limited investigation time before a trial, due to my experience in another danganronpa RP. So I'm thinking of having one main area with all living essentials (like dorm rooms, kitchen, toilets, trial room), then only one other extra area (Eg. An arts area, with a theatre, art room, and music room) being available at a time, with that one area changing after each trial. This could be possible in a few ways. One way is by having the main area be like a giant elevator, which elevates to a new floor after every trial (via fantasy mechanics). For this idea all of the changing floors should connect to the main area at the same place, like different floors do to a real elevator. A simpler idea is to have everything on a single floor, and the different areas connecting to the main area by a single door each, which can lock/unlock as needed. Or something else. You tell me what you'd prefer to do! (I hope this makes sense and isn't madness...)

    Also, when I've decided more exactly what I want, do you mind if I PM it to you? Your original post says no PMs, but since the plan will include secret rooms and areas not immediately available I don't want players to be able to stumble across that information here.
     
  10. Hyak! I freaking love you right now. I do have to warn you (cause I forgot to mention this in my process) that I'm not an architect or anything so all the stuff I do largely involves imagination, common sense, and a lot of googling for good furniture dimensions, but this is an awesome project. You were in no way unclear, and there's a lot for me to work with. I do have a full day today so I can't discuss with you further until later, but for instance the elevator idea is super duper cool and I'm sure there are other things we can think of!

    ALSO. Thank you so much for reading my overview. You're right, I do say no PMs for a request because it helps me keep organized to have it all here in the thread and random requests not cluttering my inbox, but in cases like this where there are things you want to keep private, etc, I understand. Go ahead and PM me whenever you get those ideas in your head.

    I would like to ask you if you would like me to do computer versions, however. I will be doing it by hand at first no matter what, and transferring it to computer may take a little longer (esp with the program's terrible sets of furniture) but I am very aware that my handwriting is total crap and scans are not very clean, so it's not very aesthetically pleasing, especially if you're actually planning to use it in a group RP. Special features like a moving elevator won't be possible to include visually, of course, but I can at least offer you a graph paper style layout without the messy pencil marks. XD
     
  11. Aha, I'm glad you like the project so much! That's fine, I'll probably have a good idea of a basic plan when I PM you (thanks for letting me do that!), since I'll need to make sure everything fits for the plot I have in mind. Phew, I was worried the elevator thing was just me being insane. XD

    If you don't mind doing the 3D versions, that'd be awesome! I'm not too fussed about aesthetics, but I do want to make sure everything is clear to the players. By graph paper style layout you mean like the image below, right? That'd be perfect!

  14. Hello. I would like to request a rp banner if possible.

    The rp is called 'Death or Glory' and I wanted the banner to have one side representing death while the other represented glory. That probably sound weird now that I think about it but, whatever. The death side would be dark and depressing while the glory side would be more light and happy. I really hope that made sense.
     
  15. Sure. I've been on a bit of a graphics binge lately, so I'll probably get it done quickly, but just in case, when do you need it by? And when you say glory, is this like a medieval setting, can I use knights of the round table kind of thing?

  16. You can take your time it's no rush. The rp is a fantasy medieval setting so, yea knights would work.

  19. Hey Firejay! I'm looking to have a RP Banner made for a new RP I will be doing soon and would love one for it. I'm doing a X-Men: Next Generation RP. I would really like a powerful sense to the banner to show the struggle between the light and dark. Maybe a gif scenery to show happiness that can be found at Xavier Mansion first and then flash to a near chaotic scenery.

    I would like for the quote to say , Stand United as one or Stand Divided.^^
     
  20. Oh man. I totally forgot about this after receiving it, since I got it during kind of a crazy week. I'll get on it today, @Shayla .
     
  21. @Shayla. Here you go. I admit I was a little short on inspiration for this one, which is why there was only one. If you'd like me to change anything, don't hesitate to ask.
