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.
