OK. Call me anal but all the gradient silhouettes are driving me nuts. So I decided to make a full set avatar from the Elemental resources we currently have. Please note that Luckmann has added many more avatars to the collection.You can get them below.
NOTE: most of these were created/cropped/edited by folks other than myself, so please give credit where credit is due
Additional Note: There are many more avatars scattered throughout the forum. I just posted the majority of them here. I have tried to include suggested pages to find more avatars by the various avatars if you want to look further. You can also use the "view edits" button if you're very very brave to view all previous versions of this main thread and the images where-in.
OFFICIAL ART AVATARS:(made from the official art of Elemental)
These were formatted by Spartan (me):
The following were formatted by Luckmann: (To provide karma; you can find his posts throughout the forum, especially on page 2 and 3)
(Elemental sub-sets: still by Luckmann)
Elemental Crystal Shards:
More art variants of 'official art' by Luckmann link: HERE
The following were formatted by landisaurus: (to provide karma; go pretty much to any page after page 2.)
He has also volunteered to make custom edited avatars for people who ask in exchange for karma. just PM him.
(these are kinda odd-ball ones created by Landisaurus using official art.)
More are scattered throughout the forums. Pages 4-7 in particular. They feature things like 'bear cavalry units' art and 'flying shark units' and other in-forum jokes.
The following were formatted by Wintersong: (to provide karma; Wintersong's submissions are mostly on page 8+. Page 8 to spot the first main batch)
This OP is under construction. Due to some browsing issues it is being completely reformatted and built from scratch. There are other user avatars and lots of additional avatars that are supposed to be here in the OP. Jalicos (page: 15) and eplekogen (page: 5) come to mind right away. They should have avatars in this OP soon. Of course wintersong has tons of avatars scattered throughout the web. its a work in progress tracking them down and sorting into 'official art' and 'unofficial art' especially since some of the old 'official' art did not match the current style as well as others.
We are busy people though, and editing this takes more time than one might think.
Unofficial art Avatars: (also coming soon... there are tons in the "view edits" below that should be resurrected up here soon)(these were not made with Elemental Art, but were inspired by Elemental: War of Magic and/or similar works)
Ah. I remember seeing that "Elemental Animals" piece before, but for some reason I didn't recognize the fox without the other three. I just assumed it was your offering to appease the kitkun, but it looked enough like pixel art that it could have come from a game. I don't remember any games featuring a pissed-off kitsune, though.
Legend of the Five Rings has plenty of pissed off kitsune. Especially in my Samurai edition Kitsune deck.
@wintersong&Luckmann : I guess we should decide when to trade avatars. I figure since we have no way of knowing when the alpha goes live, we should just trade now that the NDA e-mails have gone out.
I got into the Star Trek CCG, myself. I heard of Lot5R, but never met anyone who played it. The mere possibility of a kitsune deck and all the hilarious mayhem and confusion such a thing would cause is making me wish I had.
Now I'm wondering where kitkun's avatar is from. That pink background is definitely game-sprite transparency.
EDIT: Just remembered that there was a big "what's your avatar?" thread a while back. Looks like it's just some random image she found on the internet. How disappointing...
*makes note to do a forum search before asking silly questions*
Anyway.... I wonder if there's any Elemental stuff that hasn't been made into an avatar yet. I never quite got around to making ones for all the creatures like I had planned to.
I don't know. I've wondered myself. (or it could just be MS-paint being used to cover up whatever was behind it. And the generic 'pink' looked fine)
Anyway, I'll give up the avatar I made for Luckmann 1st. I figure you others will follow suit (I'm really excited to see what You have for me wintorsong. I've had a peek at the avatar Luckmann created for you, and I thought it was pretty amusing)
I know you told me the font at some point in time Luckmann, but I forgot what it was. So I just used some generic font.
I realize that doesn't fit his current color scheme as much as it could, and since I'm an over achiever I went ahead and modified it as well to match his current colors.
And a while ago I drew a cookie, because I thought luckmann and switched to promoting cookies once bears were mentioned in official Stardock sources... so since I drew a cookie, I might as well include it. I honestly couldn't decide if I liked the bear-o-mancer or the cookie more.
(I'm an over achiever. We were only supposed to have 1 avatar... so I guess Luckmann should *bear* whichever is his favorite the next few weeks. Not switch between them )
Let's try this.Bwaha, worked!
And as promised to Wintersong, something with boobs!
If I get banned for showing boobs in the avatar...
I'll let decide Landisaurus if the one I showed him fits the theme or if he prefers me to try again. What can I say? I'm just like that. In any case, impossible to beat him. I mean, seriously.
I love how Spartan have updated the list of Wintersong musings by linking directly to his avatar, resulting in it changing every time Wintersong changes avatar.
Wintersong created 2 for me as well.
I'm currently wearing the 1st one, I'm going to put this one other up when the beta comes out next month. I AM the self-proclaimed troll of this forum (and I'll fight anybody for the position)
Likely an fairly accurate picture of me honestly. The particular picture that was used to create this avatar I actually had the hair wrapped around to about my mid-chest. But its been cut to shoulder length since.
I made a few avatars based on some of the map symbols that appear in the recent alpha screenshots.
The crystal and boxes look a bit odd outside of the game, but I think the city icon looks pretty sharp.
On the cloth map, however, I think the city looks out of place due to the bright color and cartoony style, while the other two really look like they've been drawn on a rough cloth surface. Weird.
I'm also working on a few new avatars based on the creature concept art from way back when this thread was started. I've only got a couple done so far, but you can see one of them to the left.
FANTASTIC! I love them.
Hmm I take it my avatar is the same from the Sins/Demigod forums. Don't really want to change it, but those are sweet
EDIT: Yep same avatar
Double post for the sake of ANIMATION
Used making APNG editor, it is technically a .png and just under 400 KB... too bad the limit is 40. Oh well
I... don't see an animation.
I do. It took a moment to load in and start pulsing through the colors. Neat.
landisaurus - can you see pngs? It is an apng (animated png). Can you see my icon's animation (he waggles his fist)?
might be able to get it to meet size requirments if you shrink it and make it change colors faster...
Sadly, when I cut it down to 50x50, 5 frames was the max without going over 40 And shortening the time between frames didn't help, but thanks for the advice
@Thrawn2787 - nice work!
Animated avatars are not permitted. Sorry thrawn, but I've gotta ask you to change it.
no, I couldn't see him wave his fist or anything like that.
(of course, now it looks like grand admiral thrawn, but before when it was an angry face)
See Kryo's post. I reverted back to my old avatar
Please feel free to use one of the new E:WoM avatars (see top of thread) for your avatar.
Why is that?
I'm not trying to challenge the rules or anything, but I'm curious, and this is a thread about making avatars. There's a size limit on all avatars, animated or not, so it can't be a bandwidth issue. So what is it?
Is it an aesthetic preference?
Was Thrawn hiding a subliminal message in his avatar?
Is Frogboy afraid that the forums will start to resemble the seizure-inducing layout of the average news website?
Was Boogiebac's entire family killed by an animated .gif of Edward James Olmos, and it took three days to get him to come out from under his desk last time?
The world demands an answer!
And a smiley to use when I'm being overly demanding. That would be nice too.
Try . I was wondering about the animation thing myself.....
