Artist Alliance scrapbook project

so aeryn came to me with this brilliant idea to make a scrapbook of our current work and group it together! i have to admit, its going to take a while, but i’d really appreciate all your thoughts and suggestions regarding this…

The Book itself will have:

  • 970×1400 pages [This is the standard size of any managa scans you might read o;]
  • A front cover and contents page.
  • A credits page at the back, which would be a collaborative effort from everyone who participated [Basically everyone can sign their name or draw something on this page.]

I was going to inculde a back page, but I felt it wasn’t nessasary.

The Book could contain:

  • Artist pages for those who sign-up and participate!

    Let me go into more detail about this.
    Initially, I’m going to aim for as many artists as I can to participate in this. After sign-ups are over, and we have our final draft of idea’s for the book, I want to hold a competition for the top 5 artists in Fame. The people who hold one of those spots will have ONE WHOLE PAGE to use as their Artist page. The rest of the contributors will share half a page with another artist.

    Artist Pages can contain anything. Other then your standard-type biography, you can design it how you want, say what you want on it. For example, mine would include a small bio, the things I love and a few shout-outs to people. I’d also include what forum groups I’m in.

  • Pages for Forum Groups.

    This one is a litte similar. If you guys like this idea, I want to approach a few Leaders/Key figures of Forum groups on Fame, and work with them to put together a page to represent their group in the book. It would include standard information like the groups name, founder, founding date and description of the group. On the page it can list the members, and messages from the members. I need some more Idea’s for this.

  • Highlights of Fame!

    This would contain informtion about the bests threads, video’s/music posted on fame, fame memes, etc. I also need some more idea’s on this one.

  • 2 Page-spread for Tutorials.
  • About Page.
  • .pdf of Final book will be produced.

if you wanna participate then please feel free to leave a comment here or visit the fame forums thread here:

I’m still alive

I’m still alive and I still support you guys. I haven’t really been here because I have been working on other servers and just been plain enjoying myself. I made a signature awhile back when I still had an artist stump and stumbled along with this.

It’s pretty horrid with just a mush of fractals and brushes which a lot of signatures I see on Fame are like that but somehow they look good. So after my long slump, I got struck by lightning(figuratively) and created this:

I kind of cheated myself on this signature because even though it looks really good, I put a lot less effort than I did in the above image. I took two background images and used one as an overlay/soft light or normal with low opacity or something like that. It just seemed to click well so I placed a fer minor brushes, added the render, then slapped on the text.

A few days later I decided to try my luck again and it was better than before but I honestly still felt I cheated myself.

Even though I made this one really well I didn’t do much. I slapped on a background image with the circles. Next, I used a large brush for the piano sheet stamp. I rendered the Kagamine Rin image which wasn’t exactly rendered the best so I used a small outer glow to hide most of the abnormalities. Then I slapped on a small cleft brush on the top left. Lastly, I placed the text. I never was good at making the text easy to read or making it match the signature. Maybe I should of stroked it but if I did that to the “Aichi” one, it wouldn’t look right.

I don’t expect to make another blog post anytime soon because I’m getting sick of Fame and pretty much left. However, I just feel bad leaving the guys who actually made me feel like I meant something instead of free labor or some guy I can use for personal benefits. And I still don’t know if I really want to proceed to visual arts because I plan to major in Computer Science when I get into college. Comments?

PS: Wish me a happy birthday on the 20th pl0x.
