I can have a go Ria although I'm not a huge footie fan, which would be better the Blackburn or Arsenal one?

Also, you might want to change your sig, it says I animated your avatar and while it is very well done it was not me who did it thumbsup.gif

Hey Ria,

I did the cannon firing too, although I didn't feel the need for the cannon ball. Hope it's ok...

Edit: For the Blackburn avatar, it would be difficult to do what you ask because the writing is curved, I'll have a go though.

Anyone else got any ideas how to do it? The only thing I can think of at the moment is using WordArt to see if I can match the curves thumbsup.gif

Don't let it discourage you JBC, you're stuff is still great and I think it's fantastic you're having a go. You've come a long way in just a few days and you shouldn't put your work down thumbsup.gif

I think an important thing to remember is trying to imagine how things move in real life. Things like lightning/ blinking/ gunfire should never be more than one frame as they are too fast for the eye to see.

What should be animated is the effect of the lightning or gun, so you'd have one frame for the lightning and then a few for the flash afterwards. Or in this example, one frame for the cannon shot then a few for the smoke afterwards.

I hope that wasn't too patronising, it's meant to help not hinder thumbsup.gif

Aww thanks TB!

And you're very welcome Ria original.gif

Ai blush.gif Umm.. well I have photoshop 7 tongue.gif all I did with the Footy badge was cut out the writing (I used my tablet so I had more control) and then cut and pasted to a new layer, grabbed the eyedropper tool and got the base colour and filled in the now blank area of the badge, and then picked Trebuchet MS and wrote "Simply the Best" and lined it up using Free Transform... then went into image ready and set two frames up and tweened them...

Fairy I used my star brushes that I made in photoshop and grabbed base colours and stuck some here and there... then set my brush to a 45 degree angle and repeated.. then went over them a couple of times with the blur tool set on luminosity and then the dodge tool to lighten them (so they were visible) and went into image ready and animated

JBC if you have photoshop I can make a tutorial for practice and getting to know the basics of the tools?

Hey guys, I think I'm ready for a new avatar.

Once again, you can just go crazy, but I want a picture of socrates in a reverend outfit (with the white stripe collar thing).

You may want to use one of these pics.

I understand this avatar would be extremely difficult to make. Whichever one of you geniuses makes it, you will gain lifelong respect and gratitude. original.gif
