Zammm's Avatar Workshop

I've noticed a number of people going around with avatars of card-images taken straight from something like Gatherer or Magiccards.info, with the part of the text box showing and everything. I'd assume that many, perhaps most, of these images are the way they are because their owners don't have the necessary programs or knowledge to make decent avatar images from just the artwork, and being at least decently proficient with image-editing programs myself, I'd like to help these people out.

If you'd like to have art from a Magic card as your avatar, but aren't able to make it yourself, simply post in this thread with the name of the card you'd like to use (along with set and version information, if applicable), and I will cut and crop a 160x160 image for you of that card's art, using the highest-res image I have as a source. If you'd like the image to be specially cropped, you can request that as well, and if possible I will accomodate you, though I can't promise anything as I may not have an image of that card's art at a high enough resolution to do so.

Examples of my work to date can be found in my gallery.

When done, I will add the image to my gallery with your username as its title and post in this thread saying that it is done. I make no promises about notifying you in other ways, nor about how long completing the requests will take. This is something I'm doing for fun in my spare time because I like helping people, not a job or a responsibility.

I reserve the right to refuse specialty requests that require editing the image beyond resizing and cropping it, as that kind of work takes time and effort that I am not willing to spend for free without specific reason. I may also refuse non-Magic-related requests.

Thanks for the heads up Zammm, I had Bob for a while as my Avatar (full card image) and it didn't look too bad, but when I changed it to Weeeeeee Dragonauts the Gold border against the white backround looks bad.

I would appreciate a Weeeeeee Dragonauts avi if you please, It'd be cool, he's probably my favorite card of all time! If you find some artistical way you think looks cool as far as cropping it goes, go for it.

Oh did I meantion?

Weeeeeeeeeeeee!

No problem; here you go.

Much thanks, it looks awesome.

To Zammm and others: I've got a complete library of card art from every set at a decient resolusion and pre-cropped.  These art the art files used by my inventory program, and complete sets can be downloaded from the Card Tracker thread.
Link in my sig, as always.

If you aren't photoshop savvy, or just want to download lots of med-res art (250x200 or so) that's a nice shortcut.
All the art is taken either direclty from WotC card previews or from MagicCards.info card scans.


So Zammm, if you are feeling lazy, I'll save you having to crop everything.

Deciding on a good picture and crop for an avatar is an art form. One cannot simply take any picture and use it as an avatar. Only through time and maturity can a man truly find the wisdom to create a brilliant avatar.
Maturity is overrated. ;)

Ooh! Can you try to isolate a hedron from Zendikar mountain #4?
 
Is that the one by John Avon or Jung Park? Pretty sure it's the one by Park, but just to make sure... I think I have a large image of that somewhere, so that might be possible. You wanted one of the two foreground ones, or some of the ones in the background?

EDIT: After a bit of toying around, it's apparent that the two foreground hedrons are close enough to the edges of the image that any shot that shows most of them is going to force them to be off-center; not sure whether that's all right or not.

Wow, this is an awesome idea Zammm and I might take you up on this offer sometime. I just use pictures from cards from the Gatherer that I cut with Windows Paint, but I do have the artiest name in with the folder, not like I try and take creidt for their work. lol. Although, my metiod is very amature, but it works I guess. ^_^"

Yeah, I'm looking at the Jung Park one. I don't mind a little off-centerness.. in some ways that can make an image more interesting than one perfectly centered.
Let's see... this one seems to be the best of the possible crops I could come up with--what do you think?

Hio.  My avatar is actually a card I made for YMTC many moons ago.  It was the contest-winning submission, so bitexe made some coolio art for it.  I lost that art after the Forums Switch, but I had the full card render in MSE.  Could you just get the art out for me?
REMEMBER FLUFFY, mercilessly slain by the bastard Useless Mancer
Fluffy, the cute and cuddly baloth beatstick of marshmellowy fluffyness and lolz, om-nom-noming Keeper's wicked soul; its insane, deadly amount of cuteness rips the fabric of reality to shreds, its pink, soft, round teeth dripping with honey, every breath spreading the repugnant smell of fresh flowers, this horrifying creature of destruction devastates Keeper by spreading its deadly, all-powerful fluff over the countryside, laying waste to dragon and furry bunny alike. It comes howling out of the east, an endless rattling and gnashing of teeth, a twisted grinding pull on the very fabric of reality threatening to consume body and mind alike in an endless glimmering pink torrent. Nothing is more terrible than the sun glittering on its teeth, save perhaps the light glancing off the oily tones of the sequins that cover its hotpants. Of course, there was that child who tried to eat Fluffy, mistaking him for a giant, walking piece of cotton candy. That child... is now the almighty leader of Fluffy, controlling his every move, sending him to devour the people that cross his path. And Keeper. Because we said so. Nothing can stop Fluffy's march to victory, spreading the sweet smell of strawberries where ever it lays its mighty paw. Followed by many jolly fairies singing joyful songs about Fluffy's cuddlyness, the baloth wanders the mountains of Zendikarland on a quest to share the love with Keeper, tough love that is...
Fluffy, we'll miss you friend. We'll miss you...

Stigma Lasher in low quality look like a mess.

How do you want the image focused? Fitting both of its arms and the lash into the image makes it rather small and cluttered, so I'm guessing you want something a little larger, but that's going to involve cutting out at least some of the image. I could give you a full-body shot that just cuts out a bit from the edges, or I could go with a larger shot centering on one of the two arms, sort of the way my Storm Shaman avatar does.

I don't think there are any cards like that. There are things that prevent you from activating activated abilities, things that increase their cost, and things that counter them, but I don't think anything triggers from them specifically. There are things that trigger from targeting, so that might be relevant, but I can't think of anything that triggers from targeting a player. I'm almost positive there's nothing that triggers from damage being prevented.

I'm both selfish and rational. I'm scheming, secretive and manipulative; I use knowledge as a tool for personal gain, and in turn obtaining more knowledge. At best, I am mysterious and stealthy; at worst, I am distrustful and opportunistic.
Note the word seems. I know they update, it just looks amusing if you archive search.
