I had this incredibly annoying voice in the back of my head about making an avatar for a future Evolve steamgroup. After looking around, I found this figurine of the Evolve Goliath. I went ahead and used this image.
It took my a while cropping away all the white, including around the Goliath itself to make it look seamless. (Y’all are free to use it if you want…)
So far, this is what I’ve got. I plan to add some Hunters in there too… May also decide to remove everything that isn’t inside the V. (1080x1080, may require a click)
A quick update. I went ahead and cropped my favorite Medic thusfar, Val.
Here she is in the updated avatar version:
I finally did Bucket. Took me less than 2 hours, and I did a different method this time when it came to doing him. I preserved as much quality as possible but in order to smooth out the ledges, I went ahead and used a 75% strength blur on edges to smooth out the pixels. The quality loss isn’t noticeable unless you zoom in to 140%.
Here’s Griffin! Took about an hour and a half. Getting a bit easier. Though… his mullet got damaged a bit in the process. I’m trying to find a new way to “anti-alias” the edges so they won’t look so sharp (I go in and remove each pixel individually after paint bucket to remove as much orange as possible). So far, just using blur which causes quality loss and minimal aliasing.
