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)
If I had to guess I'd say it's because some people could be prone to a seizure from some. Don't wanna get sued because the little forums users have dudes with wagging fists
There was also a browser security issue a year or so ago about virus or worm action in animated sequences but I'm not sure how that works. Maybe a real programmer can elaborate on it.
Code can be stuck in a lot of places. The key would be forcing a piece of code to be excecuted in a way that it can do some sort of damage. If there is a bit of code that creates an animation, it might be recognised as such and run to do exactly that. Then it just needs to do something OTHER than animate the image, and slip through a security hole somewhere. A lot of animations make use of scripts that could in theory apply to something other than images.
couldn't help it. I didn't do the amount of care the yeti recieved, but still I love new pieces of art.
I thought this post was stickied so people could find it easy. Oh well, it's done now.
Sweet. I asked for this to happen twice already. You da' man bro!
I made a big update - I know a long time coming. If I missed anything please let me know.
@ID - Any chance of getting the News thread pinned as well?
oh man, I'm very pleased to see it pinned. I was pretty happy when it was added to the 'news' but this is great. I'm thinking we'll have to make other things such as banners and such now.
@spartan: In theory Travitar's current avatar may need to be added to the list. I'm not sure that thrawn's animated png should be posted. Its awssome (provided you're using a browser that supports it) but kryo made it clear that its not allowed. Wouldn't want to get somebody in trouble.
Also the "troll" avatar was wintersong's doing. Wintersong just left me to post it because there was fear it might offend me. giving credit where credit is due.
Man, this thread feels like a Digimon or something now: "Get Your E:WoM Avatars Here! [image heavy thread]" digievolves into... "Stickied Get Your E:WoM Avatars Here! [image heavy thread]"!!!!
By the way, someone is catching someone else in Karma department... Closer, closer...
YES! I'm down with this. I'll even add the sequence.
*starts semi rapping the music* *crazy lightshow begins*
*"di, di, di... digimon, digital monsters, digimon are the champions"** Digivolve into champion. Digivolve into ultimate*
Avatar thread digivolve to.... *suddenly deeper with strange voice filter* STICKIED AVATAR THREAD
(I proudly stand that I am a super nerd. Or should I say MEGA nerd)
man, if you want to get REALLY nerdy about it we could steal the unused crest, the "crest of kindness" and turn it into an armor digivolution. ;;; (season 2 introduced armor digivolution based on all the season 1 crests, then introduced a new crest for a character that was apparently the younger brother of a "digidestined" in season 1, but this kid never made it or something. only season 1 guys had crests, and this dude got one, suggesting he should have been one of the season 1 characters. Since he wasn't in season 1 though, and the armor digivolution was before his crest appeared, his crest didn't get an armor.)
wait who is catching whom in the karma department?
Wow, I can actually remember the music to that part... even though I always considered Digimon to be a cheap knock-off of Pokemon
And I think it's you catching up to Spartan, but I'm not 100% sure.
I only saw the first season of Digimon but it surely felt a lot better than Pokemon. And kyogre12 is righty right about the Karma.
I would personally love to see banners. I'm using several of the avatars on various forums too.
Nice, just like we did for Sins. Maybe Landi or Winter could start that thread.
Additionally, I would also like to see a desktop one going as well.
Should we make a second thread? or just modify this one?
vie... vieu....n...chat... something.. hard to remember spelling screennames... he has a reply on page 3 of this thread.
anyway, he has a bannor already. Perhaps he should start a thread on it. But I want to create some that better match the style and theme of the game.
I actually started a bannor a while ago. At the moment I have my 3D art, and some work I'm doing for a small startup gaming company, but as soon as thats finished I plan to get back to it. What would be really nice to create bannors is if we could find a non-youtube version of the teaser trailer.
I was thinking the following...
We should have threads for:
1. Avatars (me)
2. Desktops (Winter)
3. Banners (landi)
Division of labor, it is a good thing.
desktops? you mean like wallpaper? or like windows blinds skins? if its wallpaper I might already have wintersong beat (I have a demigod wallpaper thread somewhere too)
shouldn't luckmann get a piece of the action?
Ummmm.... Just thought to mention that shade on the demi forums has an animated avatar
Yep - desktops. As far as skins go, I assume SD would make an official one but if other artistically inclined people want to give it a try then I say go for it. Maybe Luckmann can handle that aspect.
I guess its just whoever makes something worth sharing first. I suspect desktop wall papers will be around very soon. Bannors, I know I need to do more research to see what might be the desired size expectations. With no signature's supported on this forum, I have no standard the way I do with the avatars.
I might go ahead and have the sizes found on the Sins forum + those thin bar-strips (like a single image and some text) I've seen some forums that end up being only like 4k images
lol, I leave kryo to deal with it.
But sigs are "supported" you just need to copy and paste them into each of your posts. I know it's humbug but the functionality is there. I do think SD should allow them via the UCP however.
See this example:
IIRC Brad doesn't like sigs, therefore there won't be sig support
Maybe Brad will have a change of heart one day - soon.
Shoot there could always be a "show sigs" option put into the UCP for those that dont like them.
After all Elemental is exactly the kind of game for which it would be very nice to have sigs on the official forums.
I'm not about to fault anybody for not having Sigs on this forum. I certainly don't mind. It does make avatars a pretty big deal though.
Creature Set 1: Quadrupeds
The gator's just too short for a full-size square avatar, but I think it looks pretty good this way. I may actually redo the Ebbenwolf in rectangular format.
