Interesting. Though maybe make the grey darker so it's easier to see...him? And his floaty ball with the symbol inside.
Yeah I have to agree. Nice av but it could be darkened to make it more visible.
I'm trying to heed the advice. I'm tinkering with the image but so far without luck. When I try sharpening it it ends up looking kind of jagged. It loses the smoothness. I'll keep working on it.

If you want any of these, please host them yourself.
www.imageshack.us is free and unlimited, but my album is big and unorganized.
If you have a request, let me know. I can do some stuff.

I used Photoshop's Replace color to darken the being and his ball.




I also played with invert and selective color to make him glow.


And rendered a lens flare.

Re: Looking for Avatar Help? Check here!

^^ Those are awesome!
I've been hacking at the image using the program that came with my HP scanner. I particularly like the top one. The second one looks a bit like what I was able to get, but I thought it lacked suficient color. The inverted ones are also kind of wild. I like how his Thought Sphere (that's what it is btw) was made to glow. You are good at this.
Lets see if I can get one of them up.

EDIT: There! I copied the three I really liked onto my hard drive then hosted them on Image Shack. Hope I did everything right. Thank you 10 X 100.

Re: Looking for Avatar Help? Check here!

You're welcome, Lupine. And your Thearax is in a different folder than the one I uploaded, so you uploaded it just fine. I'll delete my versions on the next pass through my imageshack collection.

What's the story behind the Arax? A story character, or just a quick sketch?

Btw, in answer to Garak above (plain, simple Garak, not Elim Garak ), IE saves as BMP if the JPG/GIF is no longer in cache. The BMP is a big screenshot of the file, rather than the original file itself.

If the pic's a link, right-click the link, Save Target As. That'll work every time.

If it's on the page, shift+reload helps. That's force refresh.
If it's really stubborn, I go to another page, clear cache and then force refresh: Go to another page. Tools -> Internet Options, Delete [Temporary Internet] Files. Click Back, then shift+reload.

The Thearax were a species in a story I started in high school, all those eons ago. It was completely amaturistic and I gringe while reading it, but there were several elements I'd like to re-use. The Thearax have a hive-like society (the one pictured is a sterile intellectual drone)and up until a social revolution were known to make slaves of other species including humans (who would later become known as Thearuman). The sketch I'm using was one I drew I think it was about ten years ago now. There are other sketches of other species from my books and stories I'm tempted to use as well.

Re: Looking for Avatar Help? Check here!

I have quite a few startrek avatars on my website, nearly every startrek character you can think of. Anyone can download them, but please do not link to them, i do not have much bandwidth. If you cannot find a character there, then contact me, i do have more, but it takes enough time to load the page as it is, they are all 80 x 80 so no editing is needed.

Re: Looking for Avatar Help? Check here!

Would some kind soul take pity on a graphic moron?

I have 6 .png avatars that are over the 20kb limit for .pngs. I don't have a program that will save them down without making the quality stink. Could anyone just crank out smaller but still pretty versions that I could save for future use? I'd be terribly grateful.



All of these were made by quem98 at Live Journal. Any assistance in making them usable here would be met with ecstatic joy from this quarter.

I´d like to record a short sequence from a computer game to make an animated avatar of that. Does anyone know of an easy-to-use program to do that?

One of the best and easiest to use is Animation Pro Shop from Jasc Software. I used it to animate my Nekko. This software package is available as part of Paint Shop Pro or seperately. Check this web site link for product details, purchase and demo download.
