    Checklist banners needed!

    Hoping somebody could do this, it's a pretty big request! Could I have:
    1. A Banner saying the checklist: Never Yodeling Glory: iiDontYodel (with like, cartoon, anime type cartoon characters, etc. ) (=
    (the rest should be same style ! ) (A construction site type post, like a fence, or maybe a brickwall! )
    2. A banner that says : About Me!
    3. A banner that says: My trophy goals!
    4. A banner that says: What I am currently working on!
    5. A banner that says: My Platinums!
    6. A banner that says: My 100% PSN games!
    7. A banner that says: Closing thoughts, and acknowledgments!

    Anybody who can do this, I will rep, and you will be given total credit for everything you have done, and I will recommend you for any other jobs you may be taking on! (=

    I will comment simply to keep your comment at the top of the forumns so one of the artists on this site can see it. It is really a shame that the stores are practically non-existant now. Hopefully that will change in the future

    Thanks (= And I know! ): I was looking for a store, but I just couldn't find one that had what I was looking for )= Maybe it's just a low time for artists now.

    I mean this with no dis-respect to anyone, but it's checklist requests that killed it off for a lot of people. nothing was a bigger ball-ache than getting back in from work only to make 8 banners based around poor-quality anime images

    I hope you find someone though, at one point it looked like there were a few newer artists coming through, but we must've scared them off

    Feck it, I'm already waist deep into Trunksu's checklist, I'll give you a hand. I know it's been said above me, but you really want to come up with a theme for your checklist. Go ahead and PM me any info and we can discuss what you'd like to do.

    I agree fully with Curse. What used to happen as well, was that you'd make a ton-load of banners for someone.. few weeks later they disappear from the site

    What is it about banners that people don't like. Is it just that artist find them boring or are they harder to do???

    All banners are easy to do (imo) Trophy guide banners are nice as they don't really require much time or effort to complete. You can make them as large as you want and essentially do whatever you want to it and still get a decent result for their purpose. Honestly you can make a decent looking banner in 5 minutes by simply applying some basic techniques to a stock picture. Checklist banners though, the ones where people ask you to do an individual banner for each game in their list or to do header banners for each section, are different.

    They're tedious and offer very little room to put your own personal touch on them. Most of the banners I see on here for individual games are simply a cropped screenshot with the game logo put somewhere off to the side and nothing else. I know that towards the end of ExDesigns whenever one of us got a request for a checklist game banner we'd simply get a screenshot, blur the background, and throw the logo on somewhere because there was no room for creativity. I remember at one point somebody asked Prosthetic to do ~100 game banners for him

    For the headers it's pretty much the same. Very little room for creativity so people simply make a narrow strip and do one design on them and simply chang (no e is intentional. It's time for Chang!) the text several times to fit the request. They're pretty boring and are no good if you intent to make some sort of portfolio (which many of the people on here are trying to do)

    All in all, game banners are boring. Offer no creativity. People don't like doing them especially when the requester thinks that having 4 or 5 different 'cool' characters on it will make it super-133 and everybody will love it. Waste of time. Only reason people did them was to build up the number of requests they got and to seem like their shop / thread is more active, or to genuinely help somebody they know out.

    Wow I never looked at it that way. It really sucks that fun out of what you and many others love to do. And holy shit, 100 banners. Please tell me Prosthetic did not take up that request.

    I feel like a dick now though. I remember requestion like 15 banners from somebody once. I must have seemed like a real asshole lol. It is a shame thought that in reality, it turns out that it was the consumers that destroyed the shops.

    Damn. I kind of feel like a dick too...I requested about 7 banners from Prosthetic a while back and all 40 of mine were done by ThunderStick. I apologize to those artists and Fox who all worked on stuff for my checklist. If you see this, thanks guys.

    He did and it was the beginning of the end. I'm still taking requests via VM but if I don't like it I'll turn it down. Another bad thing about checklist banners is that you make a bucketload and then a week later there's a request for another ten or something; once you've begun it doesn't end.

    Don't worry about it. I could have turned the request down but I was hapy to do it at the time. Yours were actually quite entertaining compared to some of the other requests I've done.

    You don't need to feel like a d*ck The only ones who need to feel like that are either the people who were made signatures and only wore them for a few days/the super impatient people ''OMG where is my sig? come on already'' as if he/she paid us to do it. Buy yeah, all in all these checklist banners were pretty boring to make. I think Lee said all that needs to be said; they let little to no room for the artists creativity.

    Another thing I think we all disliked were the very bad quality images some people would give you. I swear sometimes people gave me a picture taken from an early camera mobile phone to use as a stock lol
