    Default Artist Request

    This may be a bit of a long shot but I am looking for an artist to do a banner for the website I am about to launch.
    (lootfarmer.com)

    Sadly my artistic talent is but Ill give you a rough idea of what I am thinking.
    Banner Size: 500 x 100
    Art Style: Anime, semi-cute.

    In my head I have the picture of a farmer, slightly redneck-ish. Wearing overalls and a farmer's straw hat. Hitting a dragon on the head with a shovel. Farm in the background. Gold spilling out of a barn door. A little chibi dog in the background barking at a chicken wearing a crown. "Loot Farmer" on the right hand side.

    Like I said, that is my rough idea. If you think you would like to give it a shot or have an idea for a variation let me know.

    Banner Size: 300 x 60

    Isn't 300x60 a bit small for a banner? o.0 That's more of a signature or something. For example, the images in my signature are only 475x50 each. Isn't a website banner supposed to fill the top of the website?

    You are right. That is a little small. Your combined sig size is about right. Soooo... 500x100!

    But lots of websites are using small logos/banners these days. Just look at OnRPG and MMOHut. :P

    Unfortunately, I'm not an artist by any stretch, so I can't really help you :/ I know an artist that's really great with this sort of stuff, but she's been MIA for a few months now (busy with real life, I guess).

    You did, however, inspire me to spend a few minutes making this I still need to add detail/shadowing. I also want to add an eyeball to one of the pitchforks prongs.

    Awesome. That's actually pretty close to the guy I had in my head.
    I can only assume the pitchfork bent on a goblin face.

    Spent a few more minutes finishing it up.



    The idea of a loot farmer type character/mascot is pretty neat. Hope you find an artist who can really bring it to life. Try deviantart, there's a lot of great artist on there who may be willing to this for free, or for a relatively cheap price.


    Edit: and yeah, I'm aware the shading is shit.

    The shading is cute. Reminds me of Pokemon.

    If you can manage it, you can always commission someone on deviantart. At least you'll get really good quality there.
