Symbol requests thread
« on: October 19, 2017, 07:19:26 PM »
Hi, I've done symbols for people and now I can do them for you. I'd like some practice with some more symbols so if you want your character's symbol done for you, just comment in this thread. It won't be necessarily first come first serve, for example if someone requests a super complex symbol then someone else requests a super simple symbol I'm gonna be doing the simple one first.

Something of note: I have basically no artistic skill. I don't draw the symbols I make. The easiest ones are just traced images that I size up to be ~1000x1000 then make clean, though most symbols I have are edited images. Basically I take a vector or five and then edit the, spin some stuff around, match lines, etc. and come out with a not awful looking symbol.

Examples: https://imgur.com/a/XQcbo
Now you might be saying "WOW those edges are rough!" and you'd be right. Adding the gradient to images tends to fuck up the edges and make them much harsher. Thankfully that's only really noticeable one the full sized images. However, if you use the sized down versions for a profile like you are supposed to do, like so https://i.imgur.com/CEtsTdW.png, you end up with cleaner images.
Smaller examples: https://imgur.com/a/QFoGX

I really liked what you did with Helena's symbol so eh, why not? Note that I'm putting these here for your leisure. Also, do have fun messing with the colors and taking what fits best in your opinion, if you so desire. Turned out well last time you did and it allows for experimentation on your end, so why wouldn't I want that?

Kinda complex, this one. Primary is #00FFFF and secondary is, I 'dunno, some sort of light, silvery gray. Yeah. I'll, uh, add hexes if you shout/scream/yell at me.

http://rwby-rpg.rwbyfanon.com/index.php/topic,145.msg327.html#msg327
More simple, but probably vague too. Primary: #9C2F00. Secondary: E95300.

http://rwby-rpg.rwbyfanon.com/index.php/topic,1177.msg14711.html#msg14711
Still in her early stages but ehh, fuck it. Primary: #117AB1 Secondary: Probably something bright, like white, or neon red, or something. Again, early and feel free to 'fuck me', as you put it.

I'll let other people get a word in before actually spamming :))

Two of them done

Anna's I can try but no promises. Maena's needs less vagueness.

That looks fucking sick. It's bewilderingly close to what I'd originally envisioned, too.

Fair enough, Anna's is a rather complex one.

Maena's would look basically like the old Vortex standard Windows wallpaper, but the lines are evenly distributed and are of a constant width. There's also less of them. A lot less. Sauce

Uh, hi! I'm just gonna leave all of my characters here if you don't mind. Feel free to do em at your own leisure :)

Acero: http://rwby-rpg.rwbyfanon.com/index.php/topic,763.0.html
I'd like his symbol to be white for the skull, grey for the cybernetic parts, and red for the left eye if that's okay.

Mae: http://rwby-rpg.rwbyfanon.com/index.php/topic,993.msg12145.html#new
Feel free to do whatever you'd like for her symbol, I only ask that the colors be gold and orange

Ramm: http://rwby-rpg.rwbyfanon.com/index.php/topic,1175.msg14696.html#msg14696
The beetle for Ramm's symbol would be the same color as his aura (hexcode is in semblance), and I'd like the color of the dust crystals to correspond to the ones that he uses in his sword.
