About Myself:

I am in college, I am majoring in History but I am hoping to minor in graphic design as I've always had a fascination with bringing a creation to life and evoking emotions through strangers and being able to connect one another. I don't have a lot of time on my hands so I don't want to overload myself since I am a full time college student with a part time job. That said, I do want to practice my skills with Photoshop so I thought opening a shop would be a way to help myself as well as anyone who wants something made (for free obviously).

Samples:

I haven't had Photoshop for long but I have been looking up a lot of tutorials and have been looking at other graphics shops on other sites. There isn't much here but I am always trying to improve. I have been sorta lurking around one on ones so I have used some character images from roleplays I saw. I tried to link to original images to show a before and after.



The Shop:

I don't consider myself an artist, at least on here. I consider myself someone who takes an image and redesigns it, either I change the colors, present it in a new manner or add something else. The art still belongs to the original creator though. In an ideal world, I'd like someone to have permission from the artist when submitting a request to my shop but if that's not possible (because once on the internet, it kinda has a life of its own) I want to credit the original in some manner to make a distinction between it and whatever I have altered. I want to give artists the credit they deserve whenever possible. So this shop is not me claiming credit in whatever I do end up making and I am not making a profit by these, I am simply practicing to become better.

When making a request keep in mind I don't want to overload myself so I may need to turn people away or take a break. If that happens I am happy to let people know when I do have availability. I would guess it would take me anywhere from two to seven days to get someone a few choices to pick from. I don't want to be rushed as I think it makes the finished product look sloppy.

I can make signatures, avatars, character banners, roleplay banners and other text-based headers. I do draw but I'd prefer not to bring that medium here because it is very time consuming. I may be able to change eye color or hair color or remove a background, it will depend on the image provided, as to what I can do.

I will try to give a few options as far as finished products go since everyone has different tastes. If you don't like any of the options, let's work together so you're happy. But be civil about it please.

If someone from another shop wants to collaborate with a request, I am very open to that.

You don't need to give me credit but it would be cool if you did. It would be even better if you gave me and the original artist credit though. Let's all be chill yeah?

Request Form:

If you leave a section blank I will assume it's my choice and I'll do what I think looks/feels best. Also, if I feel the image isn't the best quality, I will ask you find something else, otherwise I don't think the end result will be very satisfactory for either of us. Also minimal text is best unless you want something purely just text like a banner or quote. I can do things black and white or with one color popping out, or keep the colors as is. Also size isn't listed since I will decide that when working with the graphic unless otherwise stated for some reason. If you want to add a section to the form, feel free, this is basic on purpose.

@SinfulSkills You're very welcome, I'm happy to help.

And Kakashi is a favorite of mine as well, him and Naruto I must admit.

I do love Naruto probably because his personality and my personality are rather similar but my (current) anime crush is Kakashi without a doubt.
-laughs-
Is it bad that was I happy when Sasuke left.
I never felt myself ready to wave good bye to a character then when Sasuke left.

Were either of these the color you were aiming for or something darker?

And it was nice to see him go, he never really fit in to begin with. I never understood the appeal of anime rivals (Sasuke and Naruto, Bakugo and Deku) and such. But still, he did improve I think, better late than never but I still think Sasuke was just a character who didn't need to be in the show in the first place. But Kakashi was always one to watch out for and learn more about as things progressed.

The first one is exactly what I'm looking for thank you so much!

I get the rivalry actually as it's another dynamic that makes Animes all the more interesting to have someone outdoing another.
But the overuse of it is just crazy.
-nods-
The last "good" rivalry I feel was Goku and Vegeta.
But that's just me.

Kakashi always fascinated me because he's gone through so much that it just makes him incredible interesting.

@SinfulSkills I toyed with a few options here, the last one is different (a bit lighter) but if you don't like the changes to it, I can save it without the retouching if you'd like. I was going to try a more cursive font but I thought it might look a little cheesy but you'd prefer a smoother, more cursive based font, I can also redo one. :)



Vegeta and Goku have a good rivalry and it never felt like a plot point like in Naruto. I will say Goku and Vegeta have a subtle respect for the other, where I doubt Sasuke respects Naruto in the slightest.

Kakashi is also quite young I felt, compared to his peers and I find his backstory quite interesting. He's a character with a lot of depth and I'm glad we got to see more as the series progressed.

I actually do like the third one and the last one. Feel free to play with side and shape if you'd like.
I think I'd most likely make this a Signature for the site.
-smiles-
Here is the larger version

Feel free to use:
  • Half-Elf
  • Monk
  • Followers of the Golden Goddess


As text as well if you decide to reshape and want to use it more text.
I'm excited to see what you come up with!
-beams-

I do agree that Goku-Vegeta rivalry had a level of respect to it and the relationship between Naruto and Sasuke is Sasuke's jealousy while Naruto has more of an admiration for Sasuke.
Naruto wants a level of respect while Sasuke is just jealous and bitter, oh SO bitter.
-shakes head-

It's amazing how interconnected Kakashi is with everyone in Naruto's life.
-nods-
Between his relationship with Minato and Jiraiya; that was a shocker to learn.

@SinfulSkills

Glad to hear it. :)

I'll work on it tonight and try to get it to you tomorrow!

Sasuke and Naruto were very unbalanced as you said. One admires the other too much, and the other is jealous and doesn't seem eager to admit what great Naruto has done. I think they both compare themselves to the other too much and that could just drag down their own personal progress.

Naruto's support was great to see. Jiraiya is another favorite of mine as well. I feel like if Sasuke had accepted Kakashi's help sooner, maybe Sasuke wouldn't have felt a need to leave and would have had a better life in Konoha, rather than go after his revenge.

@SinfulSkills I toyed with some varying colors and styles. I hope one or two among them may be what you're looking for. If not, I am happy to fiddle around some more.

Hello!
I'm kinda loving 3rd one and the 4th one.

Do you think (IF YOU HAVE TIME) you could do the text:
Norrlia Zelless
Half-Elf Monk

And I totally agree with you that if he had accepted Kakashi's help sooner he would have been a lot better off.
-nods-
He and Kakashi have a lot in common and I think a teacher like Kakashi would have done him wonders.
-sighs-
Oh well he was bound to go nuts, you could kind of tell.

@SinfulSkills

So you'd like to add those two lines of text to maybe the third or fourth one?

Things could have been more interesting if Sasuke stayed, I think. It would have been nice to see Sasuke and Naruto push each other while they grew stronger, instead that was more of a long distance kind of rivalry which I'd rather see more of than hear of, you know?

@Ricasso
Take away Followers of the Golden Goddess and use the other two texts instead.
I think I'm going to use is as a banner for each post.
-smiles-

Yeah I agree.
I think it would have made an interesting story especially since their distance rivalry is more of a "Poof I'm gone" "Poof I'm back and more powerful" "Poof I'm gone again."
