Following your lead here, DegenX. Did the softer gold with the buckle-up (since buckle-up baby will be plastered across Consol), put a 2 pixel black boarder around the gold frames to dilute it a bit. I can do the 125x as well for these but wanted to get the okay first in case there is other tweaking.


And thanks for the last one, Sid's face is priceless.

I don't know how I feel about that border. But other than that, they look good. Oh, and we need to hold off on the Groundhog Day one, since Jaded requested that one. I've got two versions, and whatever one he doesn't pick can be put up for grabs.

So, we're going with the Buckle Up in the Big McLargehuge gold. Sounds good, but let's skip the border.

Once we have a few of them done, we can get a new thread going to post them and for requests.

with "Metro" in place of "Stanley Cup" and either this year or no years on it...or, since I can't photoshop that myself, just the picture of the participation medal.

Since I'm assuming Star Wars will win, though (ya nerds), Despres should be photoshopped onto CHEWbacca

As SNW's said: To make these our own and not look like a Sharks knockoff we need to change out the asterisk.

We didn't just breeze over your post, SNW.

I failed to bring it forward in a template.

Use a little white Penguin. Thoughts?

While it was certainly an inspiration (one that you provided BTW), I think ours is unique enough that it isn't a Sharks 'knock off'. The asterisk is a universal symbol used to indicate a footnote or disclaimer, among other things, which is what we're using it for here.

... and I really don't want to make any more revisions at this point

Very understandable. I just didn't want his thought's on this to be brushed aside, or feel like he didn't have a say without putting it forward in a template form. I feel the same way, but it did get lost in the shuffle, though, it was still in the back of my mind, and we are getting to the end of it's creation.

Like you said, unless enough people want to change it, let it be.

Oh, no, I totally understand where you're coming from. But, yeah, we need to move from the tweaking stage to the production stage at this point or we'll never be done.

If you have Photoshop use the "save for web" option. With this avatar, we won't have a ton of colors so you may be able to get away with using just 64 and you can mess with some of the other settings in that menu too. It will tell you the size of the file you are going to create.

Edit: nobody liked my background I made for our theme

I cleaned up the non-custom frames a little on the 125x if you want to use them instead. If not, probably not noticeable. I'm using them in my current avatar.
