  1. There now I have an anime themed signature earning myself +1 to camouflage.

  2. Dug up some examples that still existed on my out of use image hosting sites just to add to the thread to hopefully get it going a bit initially. C4D formed background typically the most requested style. Smudge formed background with C4D accents. Simple merger of two images, extremely popular during my brief stint on a forum centered around a sort of tactical card game (I don't think you can play it anymore) as people wanted to use cards as their signatures but the cards weren't of the proper size and shape and often cut off on one or more sides. The voil (the bat character) is one images and the background is a free use photo of a dessert recolored to match the color scheme of the voil.
  3. Well additional footage of Borderlands 3 has officially turned me off Fl4k, it appears Borderlands hasn't figured out it's scaling issues still for their fourth game. Player objects are easily killed even mid-level unless the footage they're releasing isn't indicative of scaling which considering how close it is to release I doubt there will be a rehaul before release and the damage for Action Skills and player objects is likewise poorly scaled making it yet another installment of your action skill only be used for the utility effects even the skills that are meant to deal damage since weapon damage vastly outclasses anything they can pull off. Zane has some hope with his holo-clone at least on the damage end as it duplicates his equipped weapon including the damage, it's the base version since unless otherwise specified the Clone doesn't get perks from Zane's other skills (there are a few that apply to the clone as well however), but the caveat is that Zane's Clone is still a player object and subject to being easily melted should it draw even slight fire in combat. The AI does largely ignore Fl4k's pets so there is a chance that Zane's Clone will deal some okay damage before being easily killed, but since it doesn't move at all if it draws aggro it dies even faster than Fl4k's pets. Zane's Barrier ability can be used in conjunction as there is an evolution to grant his Barrier his Shield's effects however it won't be possible until there are more points available and simply having the Shield in deployable form will still be weak as survivability largely comes through regenerative abilities and simply avoiding damage the Barrier like the Clone won't move and will die fairly quickly conferring only slight benefits. Despite all of Zane's action skills being potentially kill-able player objects the fact that he can use his action skill to trigger all his Kill Skills still gives him utility, but it is a higher tier build down his Sentinel tree which will render his Holo-clone dealing non-weapon scaled damage and being forgettable, the warp effect can still be of use if the clone is deployed in a safe location and you can hit Old-U and use it as a free revive. Moze seems to get the worst end of it not only does her Action Skill have it's own HP in effect being a player object it doesn't allow you to use weapon scaled damage coming with it's own attached weapons, with little or no utility to speak of Moze's action skill in the higher levels I predict will be next to useless on both Offense and Defense. Exploitable builds that elevate damage to extreme levels are already a thing so expect bullet sponging bosses that require you to use specific builds or weapons to deal significant damage to them and these setups will render standard play virtually unusable like they are in the previous installments where you can literally spend hours trying to kill an invincible, spend every single bullet you own and not put a dent into them unless you're using a pre-defined cheese build which can turn that bullet sponging slog into a fight that is not only incredibly easy, but lasts a mere few minutes tops.

  4. Started playing Raid Shadow Legends for IoS as a time killer.
  5. Years and years ago partly a product of boredom and partly a requirement for the mandatory art class for the requisite Valentine's Day assignment I went with something anime. It's not the last thing technically but I don't have the sketch book, threw it out immediately when I was done with it, but this would be the last thing that was finished in it since for the assignment it was simply line art I shaded it during my other classes whilst not paying attention. I was kind of a horrible student, rarely paid attention I was either sleeping or retouching old art assignments like this one.
  6. Spent a couple hours going through old long dead forums, old accounts, etc now I not only feel old, I'm a bit depressed. I miss how things used to be, people I used to know, conversations I once had. These days forums are mostly a relic of a bygone age and I've lost touch with every single person from every single one of those old accounts. Now that history is simply out of context conversation, broken links and broken images. Haven't even left the house in years and old friends have long since moved on most notably almost 10 years of gaming with one and now not a so much as an idle pleasantries exchanged with them. Time does indeed degrade all things I suppose.

      It's less that i put time into them and more that they're not around anymore or if they are they're relatively slow. They were a good way to kill time and stay in touch, though in terms of the latter I only ever had a single friend irl which the school system kept us separate because politics or maybe an incident that resulted in a broken arm, but it was probably political. She lives with me now, but it's not the same and our schedules don't really align, she works I don't, she sleeps at night, I sleep during the day so the actually interaction is somewhat limited and it's those times when there's nothing going on even if it's just fleeting that you miss the good ol' days and the other people you used to know.

      That almost sounds like a real life version of a romance anime. XD

      Does it? I'd imagine you could draw connections with most people's live to a number of anime. Art mimics life as they seem to say, but one hitch with it being a romance is our relationship is platonic.

  7. I'm bored and have some free time so my shoppe is officially open. It's a bit of a read, but it's mostly dotting the 'i's and crossing the 't's and can be skimmed for the most part.

  8. I usually have a form for these sort of things but I have since lost my usual images that contain all my rules and regulations for requests so I'm going to give the text version for now and potentially update later. I also don't have any examples not that I'm a big fan of putting examples in an opening and rather prefer the filled requests to simply fill that role, but I'm currently living in boxes with my primary computer in one of those boxes, the image hosting site I used to use went by the wayside and I don't like putting everything on Deviant Art for reasons. First off let me say I am but a humble image editor and by that I mean I won't be drawing any original characters or poses for characters so I'm offering backgrounds, blends, and tweaks. Until I see what kind of business this shop gets we'll limit it to one request at a time. I typically try for a turn around of under a week pending on my real life schedule as I do this as a method to kill some free time rather than as a priority. As mentioned later cutting out a character takes a longer and even if you are higher in the queue your request may take longer to fill as I can only stand cutting out a character for so long at a time. When I fulfill requests generally more information the better, I'm about as creative as a rock by default and it gets worse if I don't know the character in question. I have a preference to avoid using what I call collage resources by default this includes the use of C4Ds, Fractals, Pre-made backgrounds, Pre-made brushes and prefer to use the character itself to create the background which helps match color schemes and vary the pieces, but I will use the mentioned resources upon requests for instance if you simply want a character blended to another image that'd be fine. C4D style images tend to be the most popular style and the most requested in my past shops and I have a fair supply of them on hand at any given time irregardless of my feelings toward their use. By default unless otherwise specified I use a widescreen style border. To request a signature I need the following: 1) Character - Image would be preferable to get the pose you want, but the name of a character is fine. *The caveat is if the character has a background in the image it's going to take a longer time as I'll have to remove the current background and in cutting out an image they will need to be of a decent size to make a decent cut. Additionally if the character is cut off anywhere in the selected image they will remain cut off, while I can compensate somewhat for a cut off image if it's missing a large chunk of it's going to be that much harder and trying to match large pieces missing from the character will be too difficult to match accurately.* 2) Text - I don't like text personally, but if you want it to say anything it should go without saying I need to know what you want it to say. *You can also add the text yourself if you want or take it elsewhere to have text added I don't care* Optional adds: 1) Style - An image in the style you'd like would be better than a description. I've had moderate success mimicking certain looks, but do note I make no promises when attempting a copy as I'd be simply eyeballing something and guessing how they made it. *Certain styles may have specific requirements of the character used in them to match most accurately* 2) Color Preference - I'm willing to gear an image towards a specific color scheme if possible this would also be where you include if you want an image in sepia tone, black and white, or color splash (For instance if you just want certain aspects of the image a certain color most commonly used for eyes and light aspects matching the eye color) 3) Size - I default to a 500 x 200 canvas with the end result typically being cropped in some way shape or form to 450 x 150, I much prefer a smaller canvas, but am willing to go larger if need be. 4) Font - I'm willing to download specific fonts if they're from a reputable and free to use site. Usage Policy: I don't care if you visibly credit me or where you use it if using it offsite all I ask is if they ask where you got it you refer them back to me. Edit Policy: I am willing to edit requests if something is a bit off with a few exceptions: 1) If the bare minimum information was giving in the initial request and you're looking for something specific after the fact it'll be treated as a new request not an edit. 2) If you want a complete turn around from what you initially requested it will be treated as a new request not an edit. 3) If the amount of edits starts becoming extremely large I'm more likely to simply recommend you look elsewhere or try a new request instead of continuing to edit the request. ***Important Notes*** I am over 18 and am not a prude, I will take requests involving TASTEFUL nudity (we'll call that ruling anything that isn't okay in an R-rated movie at worst) however these requests should only be made via pms. If requesting a character from a hentai or like material you must include the TASTEFUL image and ONLY the tasteful image again via PMs. Whilst I'm not against tasteful images that doesn't mean I want to go searching for them to try to find an acceptable image either. I will censor the aforementioned tasteful images by removing details that are expressly forbidden by MAL for example, but I do not guarantee doing so will make them appropriate for use there or here (This forum has a no R18 policy) and am not responsible should you attempt to use them anywhere and get into trouble with the staff, that argument is between you and the staff wherever it may be. You do not have to feel obligated to use a result you end up not liking, I won't be offended, but if you know you don't like my work don't make a request. Please no blanket requests (requesting the same thing here as you're requesting in other shops), this is both for me and out of respect for others who take the time to fill the request. I DO NOT usually do animations as requests, these are largely time consuming, I don't really enjoy doing it and they are frequently complicated when they're attached to requests so as a general rule I just say DO NOT expect animation if however you want to include a request for a simple animation I may include it, but do not expect it.
