Boiled Frogs' Cartoon Sig Stop

Hey guys, I wanted to become a bigger part of the forum, so seeing as I'm an illustrator I thought I'd start making sigs for people if they want them. I've only recently thought about this so decided to do one for myself to give you all a taster.















So basically what I'm proposing is, if you would like a sig, post with;

-the text you would like on it
-the game you want it to be about (for example mine is left 4 dead)
-anything you would particularly like to have going on in it, or if you can't think of anything in particular I'll have a go myself, but humour preferably
- and anything else you can think of that you might want to tell me

I like drawing funny scenes really, as I think it suits my style. Also from viewing my work on other's computers it has become apparent to me that the contrast usually appears a lot higher on older, glass monitors than lcd or laptop screens, so I'll quite happily alter the contrast for you if it appears too harsh.

I'm not sure how popular this is gonna be, maybe nobody will want one or maybe lots will (I should be so lucky!) but I aim to do about 1 a week, as I have to fit it around my other projects, so first come first served I guess

Thanks!

I like your current ^_^

They look great. Mind doing like the same thing for me, but with Harvey Dent/Two-Face, The Batman and The Joker?

Thanks.

Thanks will do.

to dom, I'll have a go at a sketch but are there any other ideas you might have that still revolve around batman? I can include all those characters but I just don't think it'll look to good having the same kinda joke in your sig as mine

I love both of those sigs they're amazing!

If you could make me one to do with Resident Evil 5 then I would be eternally grateful. I'll leave the design to you, as I'm not as creative.

Thanks, and keep up the amazing work.

thanks for all the positive feedback guys Glad you like them.

I sketch them in pencil, then put a piece of acetate over the top and do the ink, then scan it in and do the colour and shading on photoshop with a pen tablet. I used to do the black with the pen tool on photoshop but i think you get a much more natural feel when its been hand inked.

to the gta 4 and resident evil guys, i'll have a think about some funny ideas, ive only played the res 5 demo though so not too knowledgable on all the characters, still i guess its pretty simple, good guy and woman with guns, bad guys are zombies.

If both of you could post with what you want to be wearing or doing or any idea of what you want going on that would help, well i definately need to know what you want to look like, clothes and hair etc

Seeing as you've never played RE5 I've compared games with you and if it would be easier could you make a Castle Crashers related sig instead?

Also sorry to be awkward but the only thing I can think of for adding me into the picture is for you to base it on my avatar which you can check by clicking my gamercard.

Thanks.

maybe, but castle crashers is already a cartoon would be hard to do my own style of it if you know what i mean, still i'll do it if you dont like the following idea;

you in the place of chris (the guy in res 5), getting attacked by a zombie and like help help, but the womans just off in the background like 'i broke a nail nooo'. Lol.

But if you dont like that then i'll think of a castle crashers one

It's your effort and genorosity going into this and your RE5 idea sounds nice to me, whatever's easiest for you.

Thanks mate.

Could I get one of these? They look really cool. Very unique.

Maybe something related to the game Bully? For the text, probably just DarkApollo. Not really sure what could be going on. Maybe something like someone playing a practical joke on someone else (you do that a lot in that game). Throwing a stinkbomb at someone? Or someone tripping on marbles?

Thanks and keep up the good work!

haha i saw my friend playing that game, its like gta in school lol. I'll sketch a few ideas up. Sorry if it seems like im queue skipping here, I'd just rather do the ideas that are more resolved first so it gives me more time to think about the ones where people have just stated games, hopefully you'll all get your sigs

Good news though, I'm ahead of schedual and have just finished the colour on the res 5 sig, all thats left is the shading which i might even do tonight, depending on if i get sucked into halo again!

Thanks for your support everybody

thanks takes me about an hour to sketch usually, then 30 mins inking, then hour - 2 hours colouring and shading. Most of my work is A3 so this is a nice break for me!

I finished the res5 sig, hope you like it;

Thank you so much it's great.

Now the noob question, When I save the signature and try to insert it into my signature it's too small. What am I doing wrong?

you don't need to save it cos ive already uploaded it, you can right click the image, go to properties, and find out what it's url is. But here it is anyway;

http://img209.imageshack.us/img209/2944/res5sig.png

so for your signature, just paste that but with [*img*] before it and [*/img*] after it (without the stars, i just had to put them in so it wouldnt make an image out of the bit in between them)
