View Full Version : Looking for Photoshop Artists

For a future video, I am going to be covering something about Pokémon that will require some Photoshop images and while I can do most of the work in this video myself, I am unable to use Photoshop due to both ability and my weak computer. If anyone would like to contribute, you would be credited in the video and I would link to you on any site or profile of your choice.

Basically, this is what I'm looking for:
Images that can be applied as a backdrop for one of the original 15 Types of Pokémon, which includes: Normal, Fighting, Flying, Poison, Ground, Rock, Bug, Ghost, Fire, Water, Grass, Electric, Psychic, Ice, or Dragon.

Just an image that would apply to that type, like a grassy image or something with trees for a Grass Type.

Dimensions must be 640x360 in pixels. NO TEXT OR POKéMON SPECIES CAN BE PRESENT IN THE IMAGE.

I would like to not give specifics on this video, just bear in mind that it will be released this summer and that you will be credited for helping. If you would like anything more than being credited, please let me know and I will see what I can do. Thank you for your time.





EDIT: All Types have now been done and I have a design I like for each. If you would still like to try your hand at it, however, I would still like to see further entries if you would like to make one. I also may and up using existing duplicate entries in later videos other than this.

Thanks to everyone!

Hmm, for you Chugga, I think I'll see if I can work on this. I'll need to get my PS skills back in action. I'll let you know how it turns out, once Im done. ;)

Does it have to be with Photoshop or is it just a suggestion? If it does, I'm sorry, but I can't help you. If it is optional, I would be glad to give it a shot.

I guess as long as it looked convincing or was good art in general that could be used as a backdrop and was in the dimensions that I asked.

I'd love to do this, but sadly I do not have Photoshop, nor do I know how much it costs. If I ever do get Photoshop, or anything like it, I could try to do Psychic. We can use any Pokemon right?

sorry but I will not be able to help Chugga even though I want to.

Not really good at drawling and such using photoshop, better at combining other images into one awesome looking photo.

But if I do find anything I will let you know, but don't really expect much if anything :(

Well, if it's not entirely necessary to use Photoshop, I suppose could take a crack at it. I'll take... water and see where that goes. That alright with you, Chugga?

EDIT: On second thought, I think I'll go with Ghost.

the1stpkmnfan
04-19-2009, 10:47 PM
So, from what you've just editted, all I need to do is make an image background of a Pokemon Type? I could probably handle Ice and Flying. Are were allowed to do 2 types? If not, Ill just stick with Ice.

The video won't be coming out for at least a month, so I don't think setting a deadline is necessary yet.

If you want to do it over if you're that unsure of it, you can always do it at a later time. I'll hang onto this one for now, as I said, there's no limit to how many you can enter with and if a better one comes along, even if it's from the same creator, I'll take that one instead.

http://i24.photobucket.com/albums/c39/codechrono/FlameON.jpg
I'm leaning more toward this one for Fire.

Ooh, I like this one a LOT. Honestly, this could be used for either Rock or Ground.

Forgot to quote this one in my original post:

I don't know if this will count or not, but here is a fighting bg:
I'm not overly sure if it's my favorite idea for Fighting, but I'll give you points for trying Fighting since it seems like one of the more challenging types to come up with a design that works for, thanks!


Big thanks to everyone who has helped out as of yet and anyone who plans to make one! These are great!

CodeZTM
04-20-2009, 10:47 PM
I'm so glad you liked the rocky one. :D

Also, I was loving the themes I was working on, so I did another two for grass. I prefer the first one, but I worried it was too dark so I did a lighter version with a lower amount of leaves.

I just thought of the idea out of the blue, so I didn't expect it to be very good. That symbol there is Chinese for "justice", by the way.

Usually, I start with a stock image from my photography collection (you'd be amazed how many photos a journalist stocks up on over the years), then just use a ton of filters until I get the look I want (always ending with the "cutout" filter).

Actually, I think I know what I'll do. The one with just leaves will be used for Grass and the one that looks like it's up in a tree will be used for Bug.

Also, I love the normal one Shiron. :D

These are all very good Steel backgrounds, gonna be a tough decision what I use.

CodeZTM, the Dragon background has a really nice flair to it, but I'm unsure if the Dark background would work for what I'm doing, the face might be covered up too much for it to really matter.

Thanks everyone, I have at least one working backdrop of every Type now. I'm going to go ahead and leave this topic here checking on it still in case anyone wants to try their hand at making one of their own, since I am open to other entries if anyone would still like to make one.

Thanks to all!
