This is a discussion on ExDesigns within the Artistic Inspiration forum, part of the Off Topic Chat; We're not looking for any drama with this thread, so please don't bring any here.
NOTE: Please do not copy ...
ExDesigns is back with an entire new layout and some brand new members! Now available are Signatures, Banners and Wallpapers. We realise that there's a bit to read in this, but please make sure you check out the Minimum Requirements, Thread Rules and the section dedicated to what you're requesting at least before posting.
Some general guidelines to go by when posting in this thread:
Don't spam this thread with posts like "good job" and other general compliments / insults. This thread is for requests only, all other matters should be dealt with via PM / VM. Once you post your request, simply be patient and it will be done so long as you fulfil the requirements below. The artist fulfilling your request will contact you when they recieve it and will PM / VM the finished product to you when they are ready.
When using something we've made you, please credit the artist for it. A link back to this thread or simply adding "X by [name]" beneath it works perfectly.
We reserve the right to decline any request we get for whatever pathetic / legit reason we want.
Posts:The amount of posts you've accumulated on the forums. This is to show that you've committed to the forum a bit and so I'll know that our work won't be wasted. Trophies:This is an added security measure against new members and possible duplicate accounts. As it's so easy for people to create a new account and spam 20/60 posts. Waiting Period:This is how long you need to wait before making another request of the same kind.
We are not going to be taking requests like the above as they devalue the work that the artist is capable of. If your request is like the above then it will simply be ignored.
A 'good' request...

If you are unsure of what some of the terms mean or would like some more information on them then please view the Glossary at the end of the post. You do not need to follow these guidelines exactly, just so long as your request includes the information that we are looking for in the questions below.
Note: Please do not be too specific with your request. While you think you may be helping the artist you are actually hindering them because you are placing restrictions on your request. If you want quality work then simply give a general theme. Anything more than that are you are limiting what the artist can do for you.
A signature is the image you often see below people's posts across the forum. The max size for a signature is 500 pixels wide and 250 pixels high. To get a signature from us you're going to have to tell us a few things first.
We do banners for trophy guides, checklists, regular threads and pretty much anything you can think needs one. Similar to signatures, we need a few things from you first.
*Update!* If the need arises, you may place more than one banner request at any given time. However, this is up to the artist's discretion, so it is recommended that you leave it up to any of the artists here, rather than selecting someone specific. If you need or want someone specific, then please try to talk with them beforehand, via PM or VM.
Which artist do you want to make your request?
What is the purpose of the thread the banner is being used for?
More importantly does the thread actually need a banner?
We can make a wallpaper for just about anything that you might need one for. Please mention what device you plan to use it on so we can use the correct dimensions. If you plan to use it on your computer then let us know what the dimensions of your monitor are.
Which artist do you want to make your request?
What device are you planning to use it on? (Screen resolution)
The theme of a piece is essentially what it's based on. It can be a movie, a person / character, a game etc. If you want a certain picture to be used for your signature then post a link to it in your request. Please make sure the image is large and high quality. Do not post several pictures / themes and ask us to make a piece including all of them. Any requests like this will be ignored.
The size of a piece is it's dimensions in terms of pixels, width x height. Generally we like to use our own sizes but if you are restricted by space then we'll do what we can to work around it.
This is simply anything else you want to add that's not in the pre-defined questions. It could be something like the text you want to be displayed on it or if you are looking for a matching avatar. Really it could be anything you need it to be.
All matters outside of the initial request will be dealt with via vm or pm. The artist who picks up your request will message you to let you know that they're doing it. If you want to add anything to the request, be sure to notify the artist as soon as you can.
Cool to see that this shop is open again!
May I be the first to request a sig?
Theme: One Piece - Freestyle, just pick any of the characters you like or who has good renders or images.
Artist: I don't care, whoever wants to take it. Someone who is suited with Anime style sigs I guess.
Everything else is up to you guys. Let me know if I forgot something.
Text: Gambit and somewhere underneath in a smaller font size "Eddie"
Font: It's up to you
Color scheme: grey/pink/purple kind of like the colors I have on my current sig
thanks in advance!
| Signature and avatar by dsluckay| Platbar by Wadefan1 |
Main Text: Eminem or Slim Shady
Sub Text: You don't get another chance, Life is no Nintendo game
Font: Your Choice
Can you get a Passionate or Serious image, please?
"But now in the end I understand that it made be stronger."
May I have a new banner for my checklist please? With the name "Kerwan_Ratchet's Checklist" in there somewhere. Can you possibly fit a few themes such as Heavy Rain, Vanquish, Final Fantasy and Batman: Arkham City? Size is up to you, but I'd like it to be large.
Size: 598 × 192
Theme: I would like Hinata Hyuga from Naruto Shippuden. I would like my name Alanna(GG) in it and if you could do a heart/cherry blossom design that would be cool.
Just a little notice. Font and borders are not up the requester. The choice of font can ruin a sig and should be left up to the artist. Same as borders, what you think might look good isn't always the case.
Picking a specific size is also no longer an option unless you absolutely need a certain size because you've got so much in your sig space that anything bigger wouldn't fit. The size of a sig can limit the artist so from now on it's up to them to decide what is should be.
This isn't to limit what you want in a sig, these new 'rules' are so that you don't limit the artist making your sig. Art is best when it's granted freedom so that's how we want to approach it.
