ARG Player Profiles

Postby Scarab on Sat Nov 24, 2012 7:37 pm

Okay, so Adell and I have been discussing the idea of running up some character profiles for you guys. We think it’d be fun to try creating a profile for everyone.

Because you know. We're completely insane like that.

Please note: This Thread is NO LONGER accepting sign ups.

Image

This is a rough sample of what the background page will look like, courtesy of Adell. I will be creating the drawings, in whatever way you guys prefer, and Adell will be doing your sprite version. We're going for something that looks a little bit like videogame character profiles.

No idea how many we’ll actually get done I mean there are a LOT of you guys. But we can give it our best shot. There are no deadlines on this; it’s just a casual thing because you know, Adell and I have lives an’ stuff (apparently I do, anyway, nobody told me about it). Of course, we also just handed you a nice, clean, blank profile sheet, too so feel free to draw your own as well!

So if anybody wants to be added to the list of People Who Get Their Own Character Profiles Drawn? Do so here. You’ll be added to the list, and we’ll contact each of you individually to ask what you’d like your design to look like.

(If anyone artistically inclined out there would like to help out, feel free to PM me :) )

Edited to add: You do NOT need to give us your real life pictures for this (in fact I'd rather you didn't, security and all). It's just your online persona so it doesn't even really have to look like you.

Essentials I need to know: Name, Hair, skin, clothing, general colour scheme. Folks keep missing one or another off the list and then I have to track them down.

As to helping out... Well, I'll see what I'm able to do.

Sounds interesting, I'm in.
Why should we do the right thing?
-Well... because it's the right thing to do, there's no other good reason.

Am I a bad guy trying to be good, or a good guy trying to convince himself that he's not the bad guy?

I mentioned it in chat, but yes I would want one. Send me a message when you want a good sample picture of me and we can get talking about all the other business on this sheet.

Thanks for doing this, guys!

As mentioned above I'd really rather people NOT send me photographic ID, for their own privacy's sakes. This has to be an online persona, so it doesn't even have to look like the real you if you don't want.

I am an online persona. I don't distinguish. But avoiding the philosophy questions inherent in the age of the internet, I could give you a detailed description when the time comes.

This looks awesome. Also, it reminds me to get around to editing that pic you drew to be my avatar...

Anyhow, if you do Xana, make sure not to forget the Kamina Monocle. XD If you do me, make sure my sprite always has his hands in his pockets, because that's pretty much my default status. ^_^

Just my two cents. Mostly to Adell. The base is too thin. The Portrait should be around A4 proportion, right now it's a long strip that does not make for a very good frame. You don't need to make the "Sprite box" larger, just spacing it some more, and making the text area a bit larger on the width as well. It would allow for more text without sacrificing font size.

I'm nitpicking, but it's best to do that while there are no finished drawings to fix if the changes are made. ;)

This will be awesome.

I will happily participate in this. Maybe it'll end up with me getting a couple more tropes on that page, but still, it'll be a fun thing to do in-and-of itself.

No, no I'm sure he'll find that helpful, this is just a rough and we can work on the details, cheers :) I dunno if the Portrait HAS to be A4 in proportion, though... Is that a standard for this design I'm unaware of? We just kinda looked at what folks were doing on deviantart and copied size and somebody's layout... :?

What kind of picture do you want us to submit to you? I have a couple of things, but I would like to submit http://imgur.com/1NBw3 as a possible image (although I did screw up around the mouth, I think you can get the gist of it.

No no no. It's not a rule or a standard. ;) But, when you have to frame a picture, it's something easier to do on a close-to-square frame. If we do the portraits on a long strip, there will be a lot of unused space above/below the focal point. Also, if you raise the width it brings the benefit of allowing for more text in default font size. As it is now we'd have to line-break too much.

Ah :) Well it can be easily adjusted.

I have SOS's details now, just need a little more time to continue nanowrimo, and then drawing shall HAPPEN.
