Rundown: [community profile] rpanons is an anonymous community for role-play related topics. This place serves as a forum for game discussions, canon discussions, RP solicitations (ATP, game ads, open memes), and advice. The occasional off topic comment is inevitable, but please keep heated social and political topics to their respective communities. Posting them here will only get them frozen.

Do not share private entries, plurks, chat logs, etc.
Do not use this community as your social/political/hatespeech soapbox.
Do not be redundant. One page does not need three or more threads on one topic/theme. Your unfunny, forced memes also fall under this rule.
Do not treat this comm like your personal therapist. Threads about nonfictional suicide, self injury, rape, and abuse will be deleted. There are better resources out there for you.
Do not treat this comm like your personal Plurk or Twitter. Off-topic happens, but it should be open for discussion and not just a play-by-play of your life. No one cares.
Shut up about Tumblr. If it's not a discussion about Tumblr RP it will be deleted.

looking for someone who can "pretty up" some information pages for a game that i am working on (the pages i have are kind of boring and need that extra pop, imo). i'll be willing to give you some dw points! heck, if you can help make the chosen layouts i've settled on with less annoying colors, i can give you some more dw points!

leave a journal/sock with what you are willing to do, and i can pm you so we can work out the details and what you feel is good compensation for this request!

is there still a list somewhere keeping track of artists who do drawn icon commissions?

anons who draw their own icons or take icon commissions, do you have any advice? more than once i have resized something to 100x100 and realized it looked like shit in such a small format. basically how do i keep things looking fresh and interesting, in general? i feel like i can spot a bad icon and obviously know what makes it bad, but while i can spot a good one... i'm not as sure what makes it good

also, assuming i'm sticking to the basic set of 15 icons, what expressions do you generally include

(Anonymous) 2016-01-08 05:45 am (UTC)(link)
a good list of fifteen is linked in the resources post

Stay relatively simple and crop somewhat closer to the face than you'd like to get a cleaner image at 100x100. Really consider what kind of facial expressions your character makes; being able to express that in a few lines can make for a more clear end image.

That also applies to the 15 end images. The resources give a good general list but some characters list more towards one range of emotions than another, so you might want to sub in another kind of 'happy' or 'grumpy' or whatever works. I also gauge what icons I want to make off of recent threads, and keep making new ones every so often to refresh what I've got and purge the shit icons I made when the journal was still new and I didn't have as good a handle on the character.

boy do i! i draw the icon at whatever size (usually 800x800) then paste the entire layer-flattened thing into a 100x100 canvas and ctrl-T until it looks like a good crop. it's just awful when you resize the entire canvas to icon size, unless you've got a crazy good eye for this stuff you will always have a bad crop.

i also usually use a circular gradient quick mask begun at where ever the light source would be, inverse the selection, ctrl-J to duplicate it, and set that new layer on color dodge or color dodge (add) at about 60% opacity or whatever looks best. it helps faces stand out. but don't make it TOO strong or you run the risk of recreating that god-awful trend from a couple years back of having white floating blobs on your icons. (also let me know if that was too photoshop-jargon for you, i'm not sure what level of expertise you're at, and i can simply that if needed)

1) if you find you lose definition once an icon has been resized down to 100x100, don't be afraid to redraw bits of it at the smaller size. no matter what size I drew my art at, or how clear my lineart was, I always find SOME part of the icon will look blurry or non distinct once I size down. here's what I do: zoom in very, very close (normally to around 300%), grab the Pencil tool, and start recolouring individual pixels, or stroking over my lines in a low opacity (around 40%) depending on what the icon needs. it's surprising how a slight change to just a few pixels can sharpen your icon and make the facial expression more readable. it takes some practice, but you'll get good at it. constantly zoom out back to 100% to check how things are looking, and do all your adjustments on a new layer.

2) icons will often need sharpening, but have you noticed that when you Sharpen and icon, you'll get a light ghostly line around all the edges? you may want to use Sharpen to make your lines crisper, but you ALSO want to keep your colours lovely and flat. assuming you're working in flat color, make a new layer and set the opacity to "darker color", then colour over the pixels that got lightened. it will make your icons look a hell of a lot better, I promise. (the principle is still the same if you work in a style other than flat color, it's just more fiddly).

3) when using Transform to resize your art to fit within a 100x100 canvas, try and leave at least a few pixels "bleed" at the edges. what I mean is, don't let the outer edge of the art sit flush within the edges of the canvas. why? because photoshop does this annoying thing where if you resize an image sometimes it'll lighten the pixels at the very edge of the image. if you DO get this, you can easily color correct it using the same technique from point 2, but it's easier to just avoid it entirely.

How do table codes on DW work differently from Insanejournal or LJ? I've been wanting to use some on here, but I don't know where to start.

You can use regular HTML, but be sure to click the 'don't format' box on the top right of your entry while writing and editing. You'll need to manually add
's and

's in that case.

I'm looking for some help recoloring the hair on a live-action PB.

Two ways this could work - first, if you're able to work with something already icon-sized, the journal I snagged icons from has a note that they're fine with people changing them. If you'd rather start with raw caps and just do it as part of a normal icon commission, that works too. (I'd like the former if it's doable, because the caps I found aren't quite the same frames, but whatever works better is really fine by me.)

It wouldn't be all that many, just 10-15.

(Anonymous) 2016-01-09 05:41 am (UTC)(link)

Your art is lovely! I would love to see your take on my guy. I only have icons of his pb here for ref right now, though I can note he's on the scruffier/more bearded side of them (and ignoring the ones near the bottom for event stuff).

Your art is unbelievably gorgeous! I love your style so much.

And I'd love one of my obscure book character here as well, if you still have time and motivation after the other requests. Just looking through his icons at his PB is probably enough idea? The only other detail is that he should look melancholy.
