Default [OFFICIAL] Graphics Team application thread


● Reason for joining: I've been on a sig making spree recently for the PlayDotA Fan Fiction & Literature members (you'll know its my sig if it has PDFF in one of the corners), i've been a sig maker for a while, 2006 i think i started making them, but i took a break of like, 2 years because my computer broke and i had no real motivation to make them. I started again recently, and the first sig i made was the one i'm currently using, followed by Lucky's, Craxuans, Dzinks and Kianas.

Anyway, i want to join because i may not be the best at making signatures but making them regularly will help me improve by a lot, and given that i want to do Graphic Design when i leave school, it would help me out a lot out of PlayDotA.

● Photoshop/sig making experience: Been making since 2006, didn't have a lot of help so a lot of the things i came up with weren't all that good (i was addicted to the bevel tool :P). Lost everything of that when my old PC broke down, but now back into it. Made sigs for myself, Kiana, Luckyisthename, Dzin-Zakk and Craxuan over at PDFF.

● Examples of your works: In order of which i created them...

Reason for joining - I want to kill time alongside wanting to further develop and discover my proficiency in making not just tags but for large pieces as well.

Photoshop/sig making experience - About three years by now so I'm quite knowledgeable about the interface of the program and had since developed some potential techniques as you can see that below.

- Reason for joining
I enjoy making sigs and want to improve. I have time to make several sigs daily most of the time. With the exception being midterm week, finals week, etc. It seems that most of the graphics crew is pretty busy and having a hard time keeping up with requests, and I would like to help.

- Photoshop/sig making experience
My first time working with PS was in April, I made like 7 sigs then had to uninstall, I reinstalled just recently and am planning on sticking with it for quite a while. So really I only have a few weeks experience.

Default Re: [OFFICIAL] Graphics Team application thread

I would like to apply as a member of the graphics team.

Reason for joining:
I've been making a lot of sigs and banners lately, and though it is a mere hobby, I thought going one step further with it could help me improve. The main reason I'm joining though, is to help out PD members with their requests. I've been asked by a PD member lately if I could do a sig for him. I said I am not allowed, since I am not a member of the graphics team in PD. So I thought, if I could join here, then I could probably help such PD members out with the humble talent that I have, and perhaps, by doing this on a regular basis, then it could help me improve on my skills.

Sig-making experience:
I've recently installed Ps about two weeks ago, and am still studying it out, learning its processes. I'm more akin to using GIMP, and have been doing so for the past 8-9 months.

Examples of your works:
My whole journey and its improvement as a sig-maker is detailed in this thread - Krieg Kanzler's Portfolio, where you can find my very first work to the last. Not including some other banners I've made for Complete The Ability All-Stars, Complete the Hero 15 (Threads in the Suggestion Forum) and Epics and Legends Writing Battle 3, 4 and 6. (Thread in FF & Lit forum). I've placed the links so that you could also check the banners there.

Thank you very much for the kind consideration.

Default Re: [OFFICIAL] Graphics Team application thread

hello, i am a highschool student, i've been watching this forum for quite some time. it was just recently that i had realised how unactive the art forum is, especially with such the huge community of dota. i was pretty busy in school, but now i am free, and before i get into my final years of school, i want to express my creativity.
i started using photoshop when i was a kid since 2006 (on and off), i was the typical sig making, stick animating kid. i have matured in the past years, especially with my goal to become a better artist (working towards a design career, ). i've been a graphics mod on a gaming forum, back in early 2009. it had a active graphics community. i stopped modding because of stress and school.
my creative goals have changed in the past months, ive been pondering my future, self-identity and life. i believe in high quality art, with actual appeals to aesthetics and concept, and i despise the low benchmark/standardization, that "graphikz sigmakers" have set for the internet.

here is some of my work.
recent -



i have to hunt down some work, as i reformatted last month.
2010 -
2009 -


2008 -

- Reason for joining

I came here for DotA themed artworks for inspiration, was lurking back in 2009 and observing the posted artworks here. But actually I kinda forgot I was registered here so this is my comeback haha. I adhere to be active if ever I will be chosen, rather I didn't see post count as a requirement

- Photoshop/sig making experience

Almost four years, started at the most humble beginnings
Been the head graphics moderator on the official forums of Bleach vs One Piece (BvO) and some other minor forums

- Examples of your works (5-7 should be fine)



My actual latest back in early 2011 (around February, this is a request)

















My HDD got wiped back on 2009 or 2010 I think, so if you need, proof I managed to upload some PSD because someone was suspicious of my works on some old forum and demanded screenshots of PSDs. So if you need the screenshots I'd be glad to give them, sorry but that's all I have for now as proof but I would be happier to take on requests I dont even expect to get into the team on the first try since my post count is rather low but I'll prove my worth as time goes by

Hi there, I would like to take part in this crew.

Reason: I've been contributing a lot to the HoN community, but in the last year it went very aggresive, so I left all stuff regarding HoN. So I'm back at the DOTA community, this was always my place, should never had left this forum.
Basicaly over the time I've been in HoN signature making I learned a lot (lightning, rendering, blending, effects, coloring, etc) so I would love to be part of a graphics crew

PS Skills and Examples: You can find both on my portfolio.

Default Re: [OFFICIAL] Graphics Team application thread

Hey!

I have more of a niche skill to contribute and I'd be really happy to be a part of the graphics team. I think I've contributed a lot to the forum and have been around since Dota-Allstars.com. I went through a bit of trouble during the beta-key distribution (purely because of my love for DotA), but I really think I've made up for it.


- Reason for joining
Well, I've spent a lot of time creating animated avatars for Playdota.com which can be used on other forums as well (including Twitter!). It has gotten to the point where I can make four or five a day depending on my free time. Considering that there are countless ways to make these avatars, I can guarantee that there are plenty more to come. I also update my signature every day with a new 'featured' avatar and complete requests on demand.

- Photoshop/sig making experience
I'm not exactly a photoshop buff, although I do use it occasionally. Sometimes I'll create really cheap photoshop images just for laughs, but nothing serious. As I said, my specialty is creating gif's and especially those used on forums. This is why I think I would be an excellent addition to the team. If a forum user can personalize their account with an avatar and/or signature, I specialize in the animated avatar.

- Examples of your works (5-7 should be fine)
My signature shows my .gif collection. There are over 80 of them and their numbers are constantly growing. The more I make, the better they get. Check em' out

I've also begun dabbling in animated user-bars. This is my first one- and I know I can get better at it with the more I make.



Thanks, and I hope to be a part of the team

-LostENT

Reason for Joining:
This has been my new purpose in life. It's like my day is incomplete without thinking new concept/s, learning new techniques and practicing my skills. And thanks to the people here in PladyDotA because a lot of them urge and encourage me to put effort and hardwork in this stuff. This is my only way to help others by making signatures and the likes for them and showing my gratitude because they help me also. This is my passion.

Photoshop/Sig making experience:
I started learning in Photoshop since March 2009; trying different kinds of art thru wallpapers, still signatures. In animated signatures, i started last month of June 2012. I admit that i need to take a lot of learning curves for me to improve my skills that's why i continue to study for it.

Examples of my Works:
I have been doing a lot of animated signatures you can check some of it here in my portfolio:

Default Re: [OFFICIAL] Graphics Team application thread

Reason for joining and Experience combined in an essay-ish thing:
So that I can have the authority to clean up all the things in Member Requests. When I first started coming here it was a nice and clean place where the Graphic crew members were the people who could make proper comments and critics and also clean up the Member Request section. The rules in the section said only GC can take up requests but due to the two main mods dying and going inactive the rules were no longer valid. So I decided to take up requests and learn PS. It helped me spend my time much more productively and also it increased my creativity. I read hundreds of tutorials tried every techniques. In my time to shine I pretty much fulfilled every requests and improved along the way. Frankly the whole reason why I wanted to learn to make good signatures is that I wanted to have a badge that I can carry around all around the forum and also a title which pretty much comes with it. So yeah I really think I deserve this.

Examples of my Works:
In my eyes I can't really see which of my works are better or worse. So instead of copying my portfolio here I would like to ask you (Lycan probably) to go to my portfolio.

Yours truly, Fate Trap. (Also I'm a bit sad that I wasn't accepted before this T^T)
