Making them Guild Emblems & Requests

Make an Emblem for your guild
If you want to request a emblem see the 2nd post...
=========================================
[ HOW TO MAKE YOUR OWN EMBLEM: ]
=========================================

[ AK'S GUILD EMBLEM REQUIREMENTS: ]
(Official AK Wiki Reference)
Color depth: 24-bit
Image File Format: .bmp or Bitmap file format
Size: 32x32 pixels

==================

[ FINDING A "PRE-MADE" IMAGE: ]
If you want something pre-made, I suggest looking for "sprites". Anything 8-bit/16-bit such as images from retro NES, GENESIS, or SNES video games works.
You can find a bunch of game sprites here:
http://spritedatabase.net/

You can also try finding something finding something in the "stock" area of deviant art, or any images that are "collective commons" or is "royalty free" .

==================

[ CREATING YOUR OWN: ]
You can take any old image and scale it down so long as it fits the requirements, however, if you want to make your own...

If you are looking for a photo editing software I would suggest GIMP over MSPaint. Gimp is a freely distributed Image Manipulation Program that has features such as layering, similarity to photoshop, as well as image composition and image authoring.
You can download the "GIMP" here:
http://www.gimp.org/

Here is a cool little sprite making tutorial done by "The Mechanical Maniacs":
http://themechanicalmaniacs.com/guides/spriteguide.php

==================

[ TRANSPARENCY: ]
The "background" or the area you want to be transparent has to be filled with a specific "pink". This "pink" can be obtain by using a numerical numbers in ether two ways.
Hex color: #FF00FF
RGB: Red: 255, Green: 0, Blue:255
These numbers are put in with the "color picker"" tool in your image editor program.

OR

Another way to make a "transparent" .bmp :
Creating an alpha mask of the background and saving it as a 32bit BMP with Alpha Channels checked off. Besides Photoshop, I think you can also do this using GIMP.

----------

The Unwanted "pink" areas:
Aura Kingdom replaces only the correct numerical "pink" with transparency.
Often times when making an Emblem, some will forget to delete any "fading" pixels.

Example:
You have put a gradient shadow that fades to transparent behind your Emblem. When you open up your Emblem in game you notice you have a "pink" shadow instead.

If you take a semi-transparent black pixel, and put it front of the "pink" background it is not the same numerical correct "pink"color any more. Semi-black pixel+correct pink color= not the correct pink color.

So, You can't use faded edges around any area you want to be transparent.
Don't "blend", fade, use "feathered or "anti-aliased" on edges of your Emblem.

Instead, make sure your Emblem's "outlined", or any area that is touching part of an area you want to be transparent has no fading transparent edges.
You can do this by:
-Duplicating the Emblem's layer some twenty times helps gets rid of most "fading" edges.
-Take your "Pencil" tool or "Eraser" tool and change the size to 1px. Use your "Color Picker" tool to grab a near by pixel's color. Pencil in or Erase the "fading" pixels.

Test it ingame by saving it as a bmp. If you see any pink pixels, go back to the file and change any you missed.

==================

[ NOTES AND QUESTIONS: ]

I want to warn everyone now, I am not going to reply to many of the questions and comments I may get on here. I am going to be focusing on any direct guild emblem requests.

GOOD LUCK

Requests (-closed-)

========================================================
[ Requesting a Guild Emblem to be made: ]
========================================================

I use to make Ragnarok Online guild emblems, as well as ones for Lineage II, etc.

The concept is basically the same on Aura as it is on RO and L2....

==================

[ MY EXAMPLES: ]

-Thank you Alfheim for their Screenshot of my Emblem to them -

You can also get an idea of my skills with these banners.
(Note: I am NOT making signatures, only Aura Kingdom Guild Emblems.
If you want a sig or banner use this: http://www.bannerfans.com/ )

You can also see some more of my graphic decor on my stream/twitch channel:

B) A image concept or rough you want emblem to be of
OR
C) A typed, and detail explanation of your guild concept
AND
The name of the guild

A.)

B.) Just make it transparent please.

C.) Our Guild's name is Zantetsuken. Yes, that Zantetsuken of Odin from the Final Fantasy series. I wanted to make it as a cherry blossom petal because I believe it symbolizes that move.

We currently have the same emblem, but it is really, really... Ugly. :c I hope you can help.

A) The specific image you want the emblem to be of: I dont have one... .-.
B) A image concept or rough you want emblem to be of: Well I would like it to be either an image of Yggdrasil (the World Tree) or a picture of a fairy! (our guild name is Alfheim)
OR
C) A typed, and detail explanation of your guild concept: A picture of Yggdrasil (The World Tree) which would just be a cool looking tree since the emblem cant be to big, or I would really like the emblem to be a fairy with lots of color so it would have some eye candy, but I know that could be really hard to do.
AND
The name of the guild: Alfheim.

Kinda filled out everything... Razz

B) Something almost exactly like this, but with a small C somewhere near the Lion's Paw, if this proves too much, exclude it altogether. Thank you so much Smile

I need this emblem looks bold and sharp in game (so it's easy enough to identify what it is in game, I've tried to resize many times but the quality turned so bad) and also background transparent:



thank u very much for your kindness! Very Happy
