Second, I just think it looks cheesy to have our players being all half-cybernetic. I'm thoroughly impressed with the technical skill displayed in the mockup; I just don't dig the theme.

Also, I like the "If you build it", "Torts kinda guy" and "homemade jam" themes better and also think they'll look more classy/classic. The homemade jam one I think has a ton of potential. I think I'd change it to something like:

1. A. Anisimov + Face
2. Homemade Jam + Jar/Can of jam
3. "Packed with silly snipes and a solid-two way game", for example... or "Made from 100% natural snipes and impressive size"

But basically, instead of animating the "Packed" - "Packed With" - "Packed With Homemade Jam", it would go from the face, right to a slide with "Homemade Jam" and the jar, to a slide with the "ingredients".
I was going to say the ingredients would be too much text on a slide with anything else, but alone, it might fit and be legible.

Really nice. Mind making me a Dubinsky one?

Guys, wait until we're done with everything. We're working on mockups.

I don't want to make any custom ones yet, simply because I'd like to refine ideas among the majority, if the theme you like doesn't win though I'll gladly give you one anyway if you don't like the one picked.

Here's an example "score from the side" one. I made an executive decision to drop the "Yes we can..." because we already did that.

It was a pain to get under 20 kilobytes, so I might have to drop a frame, or you'll have to live with a little less quality.

Did a variation on the AA jam but the text goes unreadable when you squeeze it down to 125x125 for avatar use

Alright here are the mockups for "_____ is a Torts Kind of Guy"








Had to learn how to make animated gifs to keep up with you guys...

Infinite possibilities... And pretty quick to photoshop. Gonna have to do some tweaking though to get the file size down a little for final versions.

Dude... the Robocop one seriously made me bust out laughing here at work. Especially since I just watched them all with some college buddies a couple weekends ago. So laughably bad! My favorite part was the toxic waste! LOL!

Okay. I'll roll with the majority. That's fine with me.

These are phenominal. Excellent job! I'm impressed!

If this wins, I call dibbs on the Tony Montana one.

Make a mock-up of a Darth Vader - Torts Kinda Guy Avatar. He doesn't deal with ********. I wanna see how that looks. It sounds cheesy, but I'd like to see it.

Well done. When you are done, PM me the PSD so we can throw them together quickly.

You know, a Warriors theme WOULD be cool. Its an all time fave of mine anyways... I even used Ajax as an av before at one point for one of these board unified av themes, AND the story is about trying to get home...

Well the Rangers are trying to get home [ice advantage]. I'd dig that. Fa sho

Some really really good work here. This is nowhere as good, but I'll throw my hat into the ring with the Kiddie theme.

Loving the Tony Montana Torts kind of guy!

Can it morph into Zuccarello? "Say hello to my little friend!"
