Gradient silhouette profile pics (free ones here)


#1

I was just playing around with an idea quickly so I did this profile pic using Bird:

You are most welcome to use it for whatever reason (I tried it as a forum avatar but I wasn't quite used to it so yeah hehe)

The background is just a smooth background that can be coded in Hopscotch (but I just put the same code in Codea just so it loads faster).

I was initially going to have a plain silhouette but Photoshop has a gradient tool for very easily making gradients so I did that. More on character silhouettes here.

Would anyone be interested in avatars for other characters? :smiley: if it's just a few, I can sure do them, if it's more, I might see if I can let you do it yourself too :o e.g. I think a basic project could be made for this :thinking:

in response to @NindroidGames

:joy: this was the topic, 'well-written' actually should mean it's easy for more people to understand... which means I dont write very well XD

I just had an idea on maybe a possible way to make something similar to this in Hopscotch...(obviously not as good)

Also, may you do one as Sloth?

ARRRRRRRRRR!!!


#3

Oooh yes sure! What colours for the background?


#4

Hmmmmm.... how about gold and something else that looks good with that. :smiley:


#5

just as a quick first draft for looking at the background colours,

I think thats a bit too orange and muted, isn't it :thinking: let me know if you want it brighter/paler/duller etc

if only this project could be used without needing the app:

^adjusting the sliders is all it takes


#6

Yeah, a little paler sounds good, matey. :smiley:


#7

That looks awesome @t1_hopscotch


#8

I think I did a slightly alternate shade of gold (let me know if you want it brighter/more yellow or orange/etc again :smiley:)

I actually quite liked making that, I think I might have a go at another one

I wasn't sure whether to keep the face fill in (it seemed a little bit too much detail) but you can have a look here:

I did another one for Miss Chief


...but it doesn't feel quite right to me..I wasn't sure where to simplify hehe

edit-

yeah idk...
it doesn't feel quite right still so I will keep it in here :stuck_out_tongue:

another edit...

and here is another one for Octo

these reminded me a little of the Hopscotch t-shirt designs so I went and looked :)) — they have more outlines to split parts

these were also partially inspired by some Sonic the Hedgehog wallpapers that I saw


#10

All the shading on your pics looks great.


#11

these are all free to use for whatever


thanks @MR.GAM3R and @Stradyvarious :relaxed::blush:
and thank you @RubyWolf1 and @GinnyPotterFry :upside_down:


#12

They look super cool!

#13

Ya you're right they are cool


#15

making another one for Cupcake

these are fairly easy to make, just using Magic Wand to select regions in Photoshop, then using Gradient tool

edit: here's the one for Cupcake...doesn't feel right either :joy:

(following the colours for the avatar backgrounds in older Hopscotch versions) Cupcake's, Bird's and Miss Chief's are all similar though... it's quick to change, just need to specify colours.

I think the ones that capture more of the feel I was going for with these are Bird's, Sloth's and Octo's

I think I'll leave these for now. (I was going to ask for more requests, but sorry about that D:)


#16

Awesome! Thanks!


#17

Wow! These are really cool! Would you mind doing one for raccoon?


#18

This gives me an idea....
A game where bird's dream is invaded by nightmares and you need to find out why.
Could you do this exact same character but with a transparent background? You will credited in the game.


#19

Can you do a bear plz?!


#20

This is terrible background removing but here you go.


#21

No I ment transparent background as in the background doesn't show up when you use it.
