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)
Outstand job! I hope to see more such work from you. You seem to be a natural .
Thanks for the avatars. I used some of them for making a banner.
GIMP? That's what I use. And it's free
Nice one Spartan ! Congrats!
That is good but I already have a full AMC license. So best to use it since it cost a fortune.
*slaps Spartan around a bit with a large trout*
Oh yes! Tip of the spear. Oh well .. supcom reminiscences (how does such a word spell?) ...
It would be a shame to have the license and not using it
OMFG! Sorry about that. I do make these posts when I should be sleeping and often the fingers dont move right and the eyes dont see what is really there. Anyway, fixed it.
Welcome to my world! You have a scale embedded in your forehead.
Ah, mine is a little bit too detailed to shrink it so small...
But Pegasus Knights!
I gave you karma for your avatar in the other thread. It rocks! And I dont like anime or toonish stuff as a general rule.
Also if you link me the original size I'll see what I can do with the reduction sharpness to make it better.
I got it from here.
If you could make it a bit sharper I would marry you, bear your childrean and... uhm, would be very thankfull I mean.
It's Tate from Fire Emblem. And yes, she's as awesome as she looks.
*slaps Spartan around a bit with a large trout*
I tried every trick I know and I could not get any better then you have. I even tried hipass and color burns and all sharps.
The only thing that might work is to take a picture of it at full size on a LCD monitor with a digital camera set to 100x100 at high contrast.
Oh well, I can live with it I think.
But thanks a lot for your effort. Very appreciated.
I did a couple of tries. Here's a few samples.
The upper left one is your original, with my 3 resizings as the other ones.Let me know if any catches your fancy, Vandenburg.
Hmm... I think the one in the lower left looks better then the one I have at the moment.
Though it's a bit more brown then the original, so...
Argh, I can't decide for myself.
I suck at deciding for something and I wan't to call myself a magic emporer?
I really can't say which ones do look better.
PS. to you too.
Meh, take all of them, then.
And yes, I know that the middle one is a bit more brown/golden, but it kinsa came to be due to an accident. I was messing around, and I liked how it turned out, since it brought out all the darker colors a bit more.
Edit: My favourite by far is the leftmost one, since it's the one closest to the original, but with a lot less blur.
I also made a higher level contrast one but decided the more pale original one looks better for the forum skin style. I think maybe a blue channel boost of 10% with a 5% sharp might do the trick and still keep the pale tone to the rest.
I made some simple recolorings of the Firestone (the red gem), enjoy, all.
Just so you know, the technical name for the brown crystal(s) is "Bearstone".
Edit: Going to test two more, if they don't look right, I'll take them back down in a moment, otherwise, they're up for grabs.
Edit: Yep, looks good. Enjoy, all.
Edit: And another one:
Edit: Fixed an alignment issue with 2 of the avatars, where the top was off 1px each. More noticable than one would think.
And karma is always nice.
Wow! Awesome sauce! Dude you are just kicking ass on these! Outstanding job!
Just so you know, if you did the color change thing for the dragon & fallen avatars, I would be colored impressed (pun intended).
In the meantime, I did the elements;
That is the beauty of the fallen. Making the armor standout from the dark eerie environment and still retain that sexy mystic about it. Given the work you have already done. I would say you are more than capable of doing such a thing. Hell you are starting to make me look with all the new items - not that I mind. A dozen or so more and you should surely start your own gallery thread.
Spartan, you have mail. It can be hard to see on these forums, since there doesn't appear to be a big pop-up in your face, saying "You've got a PM! READ IT! ACHTUNG! NOW!", which I prefer.
Edit: And I don't at all mind having this thread, as long as you keep updating the original post.
Edit:Aaaand here's a bunch of Fallen, as per request. Not entirely sure how they turned out, since I used a technique I've never used before.
Edit: And as requested, some Dragons/Beasts!
Damn, I can only give you one Karma point at a time -- instead of one for each set of cool-looking avatars!
