Design your own Avatar/"Talking Head"

Post by Frank on Wed Apr 20, 2011 4:22 am

To liven the place here a bit up, I thought some small "contest" for all the people who like to draw or to use photoshop/gimp could be good. I have uploaded a template for some sort of Talking Head (ofcourse not animated, I don't have the ressources nor the knowledge for that in What Remains) and started to draw some Persons for that.

Now, you can do that too! Draw a potrait on the template or blend one potrait you have found (note: only license free images are allowed due to copyright laws) with a graphic tool of your choice into the picture - If enough people participate, the best ones will be taken for the actual game! Just remember that the world is gone down the shitter not that many years ago, people will still wear everydays attire (although dirty and stenchy) and most likely won't have expensive armory at hands. Here are just some few examples (I just gave them some example names, to show how it can be done):





Eli "Fishersman" Murray

ENKOODABAOO (One who lives alone)

Benjamin Terry, the Trapper

Old Fool Johnson


So you get the idea. Wink The template can be found here: http://www.abload.de/img/templymnf.png

Happy shoppin'. Smile

Yes, that's the whole point. Wink Make one, try to make it fit to the stuff I posted above and post it here. If it fits, it will directly be used in the game. Use the template I linked to.

Nice Nice Nice! I'd consider even at that point to take 1-2 of your avatars as easter eggs in the game. :>

Cheap editing incoming!



Highest honor would be to be the first available follower in What Remains (which means, if the rule of Fallout followers applies here, to be the smallgunner who can't be given a 10mm SMG or he'll burst the Player Character dead all the time).

Hello Very Happy El Eternauta is an Argentinean comic.

The story begins with as a deadly snowfall covers Buenos Aires and the surrounding metropolitan area, wiping out most life in a few hours. Juan Salvo, along with a couple of friends [...] soon get organized in order to survive the ordeal, making special suits to leave the house protected from the snow and gather supplies.

@ the comment above this: Andr3aZ if you could edit the guitar to make it look like an "acoustic" guitar (sorry for my English, not sure if that is the term for the kind of guitar that oes not use a plug), I personally think it'd fit very well.

Anyway it's a really cool looking job, as usual Smile

It's a semi-accoustic guitar, so it has a plug. Wink
And yes, I agree. I had to giggle a bit at the picture. Very Happy

I think this one is a little wee bit better? Of course I still know my editing skills suck Embarassed





"Radioactive snow? Been there, done that!"


[Edit] Alright, in an effort to do something a bit better for the game, I took some webcam photos of myself and played with them a bit. I found the results with one of them relatively interesting, though my technique is still sucky.



And here is another version, I used some "blur" to make it look not so pixelated.



Or Frank/Andr3aZ, if you want I can send you a few photos so you edit them.
