I used to have a shop, called the Cycloneshop, in which I made banners, userbars, avatars and other things for the fine users of GPX+. (It was here.)
Well, I was making some neat userbars and it was pretty fun, so I decided: why not open it up again?

The Cycloneshop II

---Notice---
I've switched from Photobucket hosting to imgur hosting for reasons that will become obvious should you scroll down to my next post. As a result, all of my images that I've made have broken links throughout this thread (except in this post, clearly) and I'm not going to fix them because that doesn't really matter to anyone. Those who I made images for will have hosted them themselves, so it shouldn't affect them either. But, if you do want a working link for one of the images I've created, send me a PM and I'll check it out.

---Rules---
Gotta have 'em.
  • I reserve the right to deny or not fulfill requests at any time and for any reason. (Sorry, but I have a life too happy.gif)
  • Please don't bug me about requests, I'll get to them when I can. Follow the forum rules (but of course, you were doing that anyway, right?)
  • When you've got your lovely userbar or whatever, don't just put that image in your signature, you'll use up all my photobucket bandwidth. Host it yourself, on imgur or somewheres. This doesn't apply to avatars, since they're always hosted here on the forums. (If you want a hand with the signature code, feel free to ask.)
  • Don't take anything from the examples. They are my images.
  • Most importantly, give me credit for the stuff I make you. A link back to this thread is sufficient.
Thanks for reading that! Now, onto the fun stuff.

---What you can get---

Userbars are bars that users have, hence the name. (Nah, honestly, I dunno where that name comes from.) Here are a few examples, so you know what they look like and what I can do.

That is not all! If you see some other feature of some other userbar, post it and I will see if I can replicate it.
If you want a specific feature of a userbar (e. g. more diagonal lines or that dark / light ones in particular), just say so, otherwise I'll go with what I think looks good.

Userbanners are a thing of my own creation! They look like this:


The colours and text and whatnot can all be changed. You are in control!

Signature banners are pretty standard on these here forums. Here are some examples.
This is long, so I put it in a spoiler (click to show)

The banners I make are usually of size 400x125 pixels (like the first four examples there), but they can be practically any size you like as long as it doesn't stretch the forums. The fifth example, for example (heh), is 500x200.
Providing your own images is not necessary, but if you do, make sure you have permission to use them. I don't want anyone chasing me down for art theft tongue.gif You can just tell me what you want, and I'll try to find a suitable image. (I usually succeed.)
Again, there are multiple options here for styling. Diagonal lines, shiny bit, outline, nothing... Let me know what you want, or show me an example.

Avatars are also fairly straightforward.


The options here are mostly the same as for banners, though I anticipate more plain avatars than fancy shiny ones. But it is up to you.
Avatars will also be a maximum size of 150x200 pixels (and they'll be exactly that size unless otherwise specified), but they can be smaller too, like my own 50px avatar.

Split banners are a thing I'd like to try my hand at. I don't have any examples of these at the moment, so go ahead and request one, but they'll probably take longer than anything else to do.
Whereas banners can link to someplace (a website, or your party, or something) split banners can link to a few places, while still looking like one image. In reality, they're made up of multiple images, each with its own link.

(that is one style and soon maybe there will be an example of a second)
(styles shamelessly lifted from CDB here)

Team poses are easy, yet fairly popular. I can do these. Here are my own ones, by way of example:

I will not make or find custom trainer sprites for you. There are other shops in this subforum where you can request those first. You should also specify the pokémon, platform (if any), trainer (if any) and arrangement (if you care).

Generation VI and Mega Pokémon sprites are from the Smogon XY Sprite Project. Who are obviously a buncha' cool dudes and / or dudettes.

---Requesting and other stuff---
  • There are no forms in my shop, so you can request however you like. However I will ask that you be conscious of how many requests I've already got going, and try not to ask for anything too complicated, or for a load of items at once sad.gif If you do that I might just deny your request.
  • I might also take a hiatus and close the shop permanently or temporarily. I'll say that up at the top of the post. I might take a while to see requests, especially during the week, but I do try to check the forums often. I might also not be able to do requests at all until the weekend, so bear that in mind.
  • You can take a look at my old topic for stuff I did previously, if you want any inspiration. Although nobody ever requested it, I will not be doing any custom spritework. I also won't be 'hiring' anybody - this is just me wanting to make some cool images.
CODE
[topic="72435"][img]http://i.imgur.com/NwZAsgf.png[/img][/topic]
  • This is the shop's banner. You can display it in your signature if you like the place and would like to advertise, but you don't need to use it if you're just giving credit for something I made you.
I think that's everything. Go forth and request magic.gif

Sure thing. First, save it to your computer (right click -> save image as... or whichever it is.) Then, up at the top of the forums, click on the 'Member Options' tab (next to the 'Forums' tab which will be the active one) and click 'Edit Avatar'. And once there, you just have to click the 'Choose File' button beside 'Upload a new image from your computer', find the file and select it, and click 'Update Avatar' at the bottom. Et voila. happy.gif

I sure can.
Also, do you mind if I kinda sorta take the design of that banner in your signature? I need to make some split banners for examples for my shop and that looks like a good style.

E: I think I'll just edit this post. Finished!

Credit pl0x.

I'll try to make the wallpaper, but if I can't, you'll definitely get the avatar and banner.

I assume you mean a banner, because there's no way I'd fit any image into a userbanner, right?
Anyway, I can certainly do that.
