Rapid's Digital Graphic Art

on 1/15/2014, 8:48 pm
Alright, I know I can't draw and animate to save my life, but I do believe I'm somewhat decent with graphic design things. Unfortunately, I don't have a lot of things that I have designed in the past because I deleted them (I have no freaking idea why I did) but I can at least start showcasing them somewhere. I mostly use GIMP to create things. For me, it's very simple and straight-forward and it's what I am most comfortable using. I do have Photoshop and do tend to use that from time to time, but I mostly stick with GIMP. I do not use "kits" or anything to make what I make, I make it all from scratch, other than the resources I gather to create something such as vector images, texts, brushes, etc.

The most recent thing I have done is a set of Userbars for the Fire-Type Pokemon Fan Club over at The PokeCommunity.
Spoiler:






















Here's some old stuff, I made a long time ago. You may or may not recognize some of it.
Spoiler:


old signature


even older signature from when my name was xRAPIDFIR3xPHO3NIXx



A couple of navigation bar concepts. I'm actually quite a fan of the first one


favorite button v1


favorite button v2


banner concept (pretty bad actually)


signature for when I was doing an LP of cube world on my channel lmfao


Honestly, I've made A LOT more things. Desktop wallpapers, phone wallpapers, avatars, signatures, banners, etc., but I've deleted them after I felt like I wasn't going to do anything with them. >_> But I'm going to stop deleting things.

UPDATE: I wanna get better at drawing so here is an Eevee I drew. Here is the image I used as a reference. I didn't trace it lol.

Spoiler:

Yeah, so the scanner took out quite a bit of the value >_> Either way, the shading is atrocious. It's something I really gotta work on.

Also, I'd like to start taking requests for things so I can get better. I think I am decent, but I'm definitely still a beginner. So if you want an avatar, signature, banner or something then you can request it and I'll try to make it in a timely fashion.

There is definitely an improvement from the image you posted from awhile ago to the Pokémon one. Honestly that Pokémon one is pretty neat I love how you have the avatar off to the side but also have an image of him lowered in opacity inside the bar itself. The ones without the diagonally grey lines in them seem much more cleaner imo also. Do you do forum sigs and things of the sort also?

Yes, I definitely think the userbars without the lines in them are much cleaner, but the guy that I made them for had a userbar that had the stripes so I threw them in and figured some people might want that. Yes, I make forum signatures also.

Oh snap. The Pokemon userbar definitely looks sophisticated, even elegant. You're good at graphics bro.

Thanks. I've seen much better looking ones though. These are pretty basic.

Also, I added Charizard X this morning. That's all I had time to create, I'll probably make more tomorrow evening.

Man it's all about finding the time. They say make time, but there's steps to do that too : /

Yea I don't believe in that, time is limited for us all you can't "make it" only make due with the set amount you already have.

At any rate I love the Charizard X one too, never did get that Pokemon though.  Sad

I was a dufus. I was playing through my Pokemon X and got to the part where I pick the Kanto starter. I chose Squirtle because I wasn't thinking about how if got Charmander then I'd get his mega stone. I think it's because I already had a Charmander and I was thinking the mega stone for him would just be given to me later, but nope I chose Squirtle and went on my merry way. Then it clicked in my head and I nearly considered resetting the entire game at that point, but I figured I could get my girlfriend to lend me her Pokemon X and get to that part and just send me the mega evo stone that way.

edit: I'll be making more userbars today when I get back from school.

Haha, I guess so. Not really anything worth showing IMO.

Anyways, I updated those userbars again. I think I'm done with them for now, unless someone request one with a different pokemon. I added Mega Charizard Y, Blaziken, Mega Blaziken, Infernape, Emboar, and Delphox sets.

I feel like if you really took the time to make graphics, they'd look seriously good. I see the potential there.

In light of TwitchPlaysPokemon's new Emerald run I present to you yandere May! Lol I have to confess that I did not really draw this. I just traced the outline from a couple of pics, merged them together, and colored it in. I'm still kinda proud of it though so constructive criticism would be nice even though I used my mouse for this. ah well enjoy!

It look really nice, but i think the fluff thing below his neck is too big.

Yeah, I drew the head to small >_> I would have redid it but I liked the shape of the head + it was late at the time.

Thanks, gran.

I changed my avatar because while I really liked the other one it felt aggressive to me for some reason so now I've switched to this one. Still kept the Typhlosion because he's my favorite Pokemon and kept in my initials, RP. I did this a months ago.

New Rank Bars for Admins and Mods





I got annoyed seeing the text ranks around the site so I went ahead and fixed the rank images for normal members and created admins and mods userbars. Right now the only people coming to the site really are admins and mods so these don't seem all that special but when we get more users posting regularly these will seem a bit more honorary. I chose the mushroom face for mods because I wanted to stay consistent with the mushrooms for the normal ranks. I couldn't think of a different mushroom to use for admins, but I realized that the star actually makes more sense. I also chose the colors based on the current colors that represent each respective positions.
