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. ;)

    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,

  2. Hello~ I just need a bit of an image mod. I'll put the image in a spoiler below, here's a small list of the needed edits:
    •the eyes. I need one to be red and one to be blue.
    •too many katanas. Is it possible to just get rid of every katana besides the one in his hand and the one he's unsheathing?

  3. I definitely can do the eyes just fine, and probably can get rid of the other katanas. HOWEVER. Getting rid of the other katanas may leave spots that are blurry or slightly strange in color. Usually when I get rid of things, they're pretty small areas, but the katanas take up quite a bit of space. I'll try to reduce how noticeable they are (and will turn one of them just into the shadows, which'll make things easy), but there may be some spots I just can't avoid looking slightly off. There are only 5 katanas right? And you just want me to get rid of 3 of them, right?
     
  4. Yes. If possible, just leave the ones in his hands please. And if it looks a bit off, I don't mind. Thanks for helping ^^
     
  5. Alright, @Takashi How's this, dear? If you want me to change the intensity of the eye color, just say the word.

  6. Ehm... just a tad softer, if that's not too much trouble? Meaning, could you just make the eye color a little less... pronounced?
     
  7. No problem. I thought that might be an issue. Darker or lighter?
     
  8. @firejay1
    Lighter please. And sorry for these late replies, Iwaku isn't giving me alerts ._.
     
  9. No problem. Okay. How's this one?

  10. Great! Thank you!~
    ehm...where's the code though?

  14. Hello! Let me just get in here awkwardly, and uh, ask for a thing for two if you don't mind.

    Could you maybe make a redstar RP banner for my absolutely terrible interest check thread I have posted here?
    https://www.iwakuroleplay.com/threa...-fetishes-mega-list-ignore-post-count.161208/

    The thing is, I have no clue what would do well to advertise it regarding graphics or the text on top of it. I would prefer to differ to your own artistic judgement on that if possible. All I can suggest is something that conveys a feel of naughtiness or sensuality...? Though that is super subjective.

    And for my second request, I was wondering if it'd be a bother to remove the gigantic words from across this character's pic (plus the ones written on his headphones)?

  15. That's not awkward at all. I get lots of requests like this and knowing what you're trying to advertise and that you don't know what specifically is going on it actually makes it a little easier for me on some levels. If I have any questions about things you don't want, though, I'll ask. I do want to know if you would mind anime or realistic pictures, though. Like would it bother you if I gave you a background that consisted of a picture of a black rose lying on red silk or something like that. Conversely, would it bother you if I gave you something with an anime character on it.

    I will note that removing anything, especially words is extremely difficult on pictures because it means I have to fill in the spaces where the words used to be. I will still try to do it for you (the headphone ones should be easy), but I apologize in advance if there are strange blurry spots or things that don't look quite right.
     
  16. I don't mind if you use anime or real images for the rp banner actually, anything will work fine for me. UPDATE: The thread title was slightly changed, if that matters... I've edited my previous post to reflect the proper link.

    Concerning the word removal; if it makes it any easier, you can erase those buildings in the background if it's difficult to cover up where the letters S and U used to be on top of them.

  17. Thanks! I'll do what I can! I'll probably give you whatever title or catchphrase I think up, since the thread idea mainly says, "ideas list." Wanna give you a sparkly one!

  18. I started off with your second request first because it requires no innovation on my part, but I'm pretty proud of it! This was haarrrd..... If you need anything else on the picture, please ask, though I can't make all of the lines perfectly smooth...

  20. I wasn't too sure whether or not these kinds of things were what your looking for, but I hope you like them. As you can see, I took heavy inspiration from your name. If you have a different idea you think you'd like me to try, or want something edited, don't hesitate to say so.

  21. Hey~! That was a really neat thing to do! I didn't even consider incorporating my own username into it at all. Very cool idea, and I absolutely love both banners; they're beautiful. Thank you so much for these <3
