Hello everyone, thanks very much for following my blog! Been quite busy in the past few days s o haven't had much time to reply to anyone or post anything. Since there are so many comments I figure it'll be easier to just answer stuff right here. So:
Fitst off, thanks for all the nice comments, I really appreciate it! :D
Q "Do you have a higher resolution Lady Gaga vs Ibuki?"
A I do, not much larger, but I'll post that up here soon.
Q "Who's Nigel and Dan??"
A Nigel Mansell was a British world champion F1 driver in like the 90s, and Dan Maher is "MrPointyHead", editor of Xbox Live for Europe. Sort of like Major Nelson in the USA or something? Either way, if you play online xbox, chances are you've seen his face.
Q "Please do matt Smith as Dr Who"
A You didn't even have to ask my friend, he is on my list! Eventually I'll get round to it.
Q "Any chance of a desktop sized version of Gaga Vs. Ibuki, say around 1680x1050?"
A Sorry, the original isn't that big! You could scale it up forself maybe, but it might look a little blocky. Try it though!
Q "Dude it would be awesome karma if you could post the PSD allowing other people to drop their drawings into the intro screen [along with a link to the font]."
A I'm afraid I won't be doing this for a couple of reasons - mainly because I've painted all around real screenshots. It wouldn't really be a case of deleting layers and dropping new stuff in because you'd still have to rub out all my crap anyway. So you might as well just do what I did and start on an actual screenshot. Secondly the filesize is pretty big.
Oh, and there's no link to the font because it doesn't exist as far as I can tell. I took the letters from other character screenshots, or took photos from my TV and then rearranged the images to what I wanted to spell. Then you have to paint over (again) all the messed up bits, balance out the colours so it matches the overall tone of the rest of the image, and re-do the glowy red around the edges + the shadow underneath.... Phew!
i think that's it for now, thanks again for looking! I'll be doing more stuff in the future!
