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).
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.
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?
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.
