All credit for this thread goes to Lemon [956702] & Mutley [588278]. Please message MyHeartBleeds4U [847034] for any edits to do with this page



Here is a list of Do's, Don'ts and other hints and tips for getting along in the graphics forum

Note! Graphics follow under the general rules of Torn. This means that you can only buy artwork with TC currency for TC use ONLY!

Do's:
- Ask for lots of CnC (Comments and Criticism). This will help you progress as an artist and move forward.

- Always be civil and try to write using proper English. Most people will empathise a lot better with this and will be significantly more inclined to help you if you do this.

- When buying put clear details of what you want and how much you are paying.
Remember that the people making it aren't machines, they might not always want to/be able to make the signature you want.


Don'ts:
- Do not rip work.This is where you take someone else's work and either post it as it is or change very little to it.

- Do not spam new threads. If you put work up for CnC and then later decide to sell them. Edit the original thread. If you do not, the newly created thread will be locked & graved anyway. Costing you forum score. There is however a grey area here. If you'd like to know about it please feel free to message MyHeartBleeds4U .

- Do not revive old threads/topics. If a previous thread is no longer on the front page of the forum you are able to create another thread of the same topic. If you already have a thread of the same/similar topic on the front page then simply edit the original thread. Otherwise it will be locked & graved.

- Do not simply post images with text on them. This is not doing real work and you will get no money or ratings for this kind of work.

- Do not get very angry at criticism. The criticism is there to try and help you progress so take it as help.

- Do not start with an auction. When you are new usually your work is not as good as you think it is. It is generally best to start by asking for CnC and you can later auction when your work is up to scratch.

- Do not be stingy, graphics is art and so comes at a price, if you want the best be prepared to pay.

- Do not ask people to mail you for details when buying something, takes more time and graphics artists are very lazy. Not only that but it will save you having to copy the same thing to everyone that does message you.

- Do not hi-jack somebody elses thread advertising selling your own signatures. Make your own thread for this and as stated above, keep it to one thread only.

Hints and tips and help and stuff:
- Leave all prejudices out of graphics, even renowned scammers are often left to just do their graphics, leave it to the side and you'll get on much better.

- Don't ask for rates and bumps, most people are very contradictory and will purposefully rate down if you ask for them.

- Profile/Forum signature sizes do not have a strict size. Though Signatures are usually regarded as being anything up to 500 x 200, as this is the maximum forum signature size.

Any other idea's that anyone has are always welcome and if anyone has any questions regarding this please don't hesitate to ask about it.[/b]


----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


How to Request work:
This thread will clearly explain how to make a request for work that nearly all designers would be happy with. Ask any designer, there is nothing worse than a poor request for work.

If this is your first time in the graphics forum/requesting work I strongly advise to to read on, it will benefit you in the long run.

Step 1) - The Topic
First off, when starting a thread you need a good topic. Make it bold and clear so that it catches the designers eye. Something like this:
Requesting A Signature - Paying $20M
Including the price in the topic is KEY, especially if your paying well, designers like seeing cash figures. Cash Figures = WIN!

Step 2) - The Post
This bit is VERY important.
In your post you should include information such as:

Dimensions e.g.
- If it's a Signature usually around 400x150 pixels but the maximum size is 500*200 pixels. Anything over this size in your forum information will be edited.

State clearly what you want e.g.
- (Signature, Profile Image, Large Art, etc)

Possible colour schemes e.g.
- Black and White
- Red and White
- Red
- Warm colours
- Cold colours

Provide a stock Image if you can
- This is basically the image you want the designer to use.
(Choosing high quality images is very important)
(Find a few Images, this way the designer can pick which one they think will work best. When posting stock, do not stretch the page. It is better to make a clickable link)
If you are unsure of where to find stock images, check out the resources thread: Click Here

Say what text you want on it e.g.
- Your Name
- A slogan of some kind

Say what you are willing to pay
- This is VERY important. Remember, Cash Figures = WIN!
- If you don't include what your willing to pay you will get very little response and if you do, it will only be someone telling you to Include what your willing to pay.

If you follow those steps and include all the correct information in your thread you will get more attention from designers, and the outcome of your work will be much better. Don't overcomplicated things, just give them the basics, thats all they need.

You are now ready to request your work.

Oh yes and of course much love to the wonderful and awe inspiring Cloudkicker, without his dedication and perseverance none of this could be possible. Even the writing I did was based on his true feelings about the graphics forum. He inspires me, he's my shining beacon of hope in the troubled waters of the graphics forum.

So why are you posting in here? This is not an advert thread. Stay on topic or stay out.
