The GS* Banner Exchange

THE GS* BANNER EXCHANGE

Many members at GS are interested in having a Gunslinger banner in their signature and many other members have the knowledge and ability to create graphics, so why not have a place where the two sides can meet?

This is a thread for anyone who'd like to drop off a banner request, pick one up or just discuss banner making in general.

*If you're an artist who's helping out with GS banners and would like to have your gallery added, please send me a pm with your link!*


TIPS FOR BANNER REQUESTS


1. Choose a character or game you'd like highlighted in your banner. Even talking about some of your interests outside of gaming can help give the artist get an idea of what you'd like. The best bet is to link up a few images you enjoy to make sure you end up with something you're happy with!

2. Depending on how busy the thread gets, don't be disappointed if your request gets passed over. A good idea is to either pm a few of the creators if you like their work, or simply repost the request if need be. A friendly reminder can go a long way.

Example Request Form:
Name in banner: Toezer
Character: Ashelin
Game: Jak
Image(s):
Image

3. To add a banner to your signature, just head to the User Control Panel, then click the Profile tab. On the left side of the page, you'll want to click Edit Signature. Paste the URL of the image into the Edit Signature box and boom, your banner is up! (Also, make sure your "Disable BBCode" and "Disable smilies" options are UNclicked, or your signature banner will show up as a line of code.)

The forum uses BBCode, so when you paste it in, it will need [img] tags around it. The green text below is what it should look like in your signature box but substitute the link to your banner where it says http://www.yourbanner.jpg:

Code: Select all
[img]http://www.yourbanner.jpg[/img]


TIPS FOR ARTISTS

1. The recommended banner dimensions are 365p x 100p which will be accepted at most forums. Some variation is perfectly fine, just try not to go crazy with the dimensions.

2. Don't be shy to ask questions if a person's request isn't entirely clear. A pm is a great way to get the communication rolling and make sure both sides come out happy!


Let's get those creative juices flowing Gunslingers and team up on the GS Banner Exchange!

I would be one of those able to make graphics. If you're interested, you can see my work in my signature, and in those of some other GS*ers as well.

I have a request for a banner if anyone can work some interweb magic for me.

Name in banner = Dynamonk
Character = Alex Mercer
Game = Prototype

I'm afraid i don't have any pictures but i'm certain someone will be able to do something.

Alternatively any Space Wolf picture from Warhammer 40k (Games Workshop).

Many thanks in anticipation.

Name in Banner: MMAMickey
Game: Killzone 3
Character: Any Killzone 3 Helghast

I like the generic GS banner made for Killzone. Something along these lines would be great.

Ok so I was typing this and then read further down and you already created one - awesome thanks!!! That is sweet. Now I just have to figure out how to add it.



I have been trying like hell to find a picture of a character with a beer in his hand instead of guns, I found one but it is on a glass. Also there is the one of the guy on the beer pong video games in bars but can't seem to find that pic anywhere either. Anyone know of one? Reebekili would be the name.

I would like to humbly request something a little nicer than my 20 second cut and paste you see below

Name : Tick
Character: same
Game: not sure what would go with the Tick (R&C maybe?)

sample images

Also love just this, maybe with one of the pics of the character off to the side and gunslinger underneath

Big thanks in advance

The list of games I refuse to pre-order for 2014 is longer than the list I am pre-ordering.

Postby Skooshbag on Wed Feb 23, 2011 9:30 am

Name in Banner - Skooshbag
character - Ash (from Evil Dead)

been trying for aaaages to find some decent material you could use for what I have in mind, but it's actually quite hard to find. I was hoping for an Evil Dead theme.

http://i677.photobucket.com/albums/vv13 ... hSlash.jpg -large ash paper

http://29.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_kyd72 ... o1_400.jpg - hail to the K

http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_5a-ir0UQnn4/S ... s-mart.jpg - shop smart badge

I was mebbe thinking about the Shop Smart badge on one side of the pic, with Skooshbag and Gunslingers replacing the ASH and HOUSEWARES, and perhaps the Hail to the King Ash at the side.

Many thanks
