= Professional render of your character = For FREE!

Hi, everyone. I've been doing some renders for some time. Well, actually it's more "retouched cut-outs", because no 3D-program is involved. But since images of this kind are often called "renders" on the net, I'll stick to this naming. Recently I happen to get some free time, so I decided to make a small "charity event".

I'm ready to make 3 to 5 renders (depending on the amount of my free time and the complexity of the tasks) of your characters absolutely for free. NO REAL or INGAME CURRENCY required. And if after this event you will still want a render of your character? Well, the forum rules forbid me to answer this question but you can use your imagination. ;) I reread forum rules - it doesn't prohibit you to use one.

So, in the upcoming days I'll select 3 to 5 "Chosen ones" (if of course there is more than 5 those who would like to have this stuff). Maybe I'll make more, but I am not sure yet. I'll post it here on forum in .jpg format (and also probably on my deviant page: jakecarver.deviantart.com) AND I will send the render to the "Chosen one" in .png with transparent background or .psd file with his edited and cut-out character if he tells me his contact details. The advantages of 'renders' are obvious. You can make your own wallpaper in a couple of minutes in any normal image editing program. Just chose a background that you want - and insert your character. Or use it as a decoration on your fansite or embed it on the photo of yourself in real life, whatever you like... And again - I will send it absolutely for FREE, no real or ingame currency required.

And now about the requirements. Since I'm not a magician, but just a retoucher, I need a rather high quality source to make a render. I won't be able to make a good one from 640x480 image with crappy quality. I still have to redraw A LOT, but in this case I would have to redraw just the whole image - and that's too much. As I said - "not a magician". So, the perfect requirements would be: 1680x1050, 1920x1200 and bigger screenshots made preferably in .png or .bmp format. There is a possibility that I can take .jpg, but I'd prefer not to use one. Because .jpg may seem normal for you, but beleive me, for this purposes, it is not good enough, I'm tired of fighting with artefacts form jpeg compression (especially when I don't have to in case of .png or .bmp).

So, if you want a render of your character and you have a hot/cute one on a screenshot with resolutions 1680x1050 and higher in .png or .bmp format - there is a high possibility that you'll be a "chosen one". But don't enlarge images that were made in lower resolutions or convert them from .jpg - that does NOT improve the quality of an image, that just makes it bigger in size. :)

PS. I don't work for ingame currency. When my body will adopt to consume the ingame food, I'll gladly start to accept that, but unfortunately I'm still waiting for this happy moment to come. And don't ask me anything about real currency on this forum. According to the rules any talks about that are forbidden, so as a law-abiding forumer I just won't be able to answer them on this forum. Any works done in the context of this event are totally free of charge.

"From Russia with Love" Charity Event.

And of course a couple of examples will soon follow... as soon as I find out how to embed the images here....

I was unable to find a normal description what codes do work here to embed an image, so I'll try a couple. Hope that would work:




If it doesn't I would gladly hear a proper one from a moderator or any of you guys.

Yep. Finally it worked. So, that's a render of my castanic character made from my ingame screenshot.

Here is another one castanic (yes, they're my favorites). Just made a screenshot in game and edited it quite a bit...

And one more render... To prove that I'm not cheating and that are not characters from some official fansite kit or some random characters rigged from a 3D-program, I have chosen one image in the neighbour topic posted by Myrda22.

Unfortunately it was in .jpg and not in the highest quality and biggest resolution, but I really liked his/her character, so decided to give it a try. Though I had to spend more time than I initially planned. And I am still not satisfied with some parts - her "collar" and "right shoulder stuff", but they were just almost completely unrecognizable on the original screenshot. If Myrda sends me screenshots with these parts in bigger resolutions, probably I would be able to redraw/recreate them better, but still not sure.

Anyway, Myrda22 is the 1st "Chosen one" (if he/she wants to be "chosen"). And I'm ready to send him/her the render of his lovely character in .png with transparent background and/or an original .psd file.

I have sent you a message with link for your render (clean .png with no inscriptions, watermarks and with a transparent background). If you have any problems downloading it - contact me. Also if you need a .psd file of this render - I can also send it to you. Though .png is usually enough for most of the cases.

If you want to be Chosen - you need to make a screenshot of your character (or someone else's character, or a NPC, or just a beautiful jumping frog - but it should be really-really-really beautiful jumping frog), upload it on any free image hosting of your choice and post it in this topic.

If resolution of screenshot will be 1680x1050 and larger (the bigger - the better :) ), it will be in .png or .bmp format and the character will be really nice (hot, cute, sexy, brutal, etc. - aesthetically attractive in short), your chances to become the Chosen will rise substantially.

PS. But think several times before taking final decision what image (or images) to upload. What clothes/armor your character (or a frog) will be wearing, what weapon she/he (preferably "she" though not obligatory :) ) will be holding, what pose she/he would strike, all that stuff. Because - "what you see is what you will get". You'll get (if you become the Chosen) the EXACT render of your character in every detail. So choose wisely.
