Looking to create a new avatar for livestreaming... creative block


#1

This was my current image. I had used it for a while in almost everything I work on:

It contained a Wind Waker esque Samus. I loved both the art-style in Wind Waker, and Metroid Samus (Not in a zero-suit).

These are some of the avatars I’ve made thus far, but wasn’t happy with them:


and a gallery of stuff that I’ve done beforehand for livestream work:

So, to clarify what I want… I’m not looking for someone to make me something. Unless it’s something I really like, I’m more than likely going to want to make the Avatar myself. I’m limited to reusing other’s works unless they are simple shapes I can make via the pen tool in Photoshop. I’m essentially looking for something that has a distinguishable shape with a white background so it’s easier to stand out from any resolution. If you ahve any ideas for me, please let me know =)

If you’re looking for something more Evolve-themed… @Slewey nicely compiled these icons from the game: T4 Hunters Added - Apr 3 - Slewey’s Evolve Renders
There is also this:


and this:

No. I don’t want it to be any theme unless it’s Metroid related. It’s either no theme, or Metroid theme.

Plus, I already have a few of those icons myself from when I was making wallpapers =P

Why not have a metroid ‘esque’ shadow? They are fairly discernable even when not colored. Plus, what isn’t to like about a floating jellyfish that sucks life out of things? :smiley: Bonus: Name it Daisy

What do you mean, have a shadow? o.0

I’m trying to prevent using something as generic as that though. It’d be like using ZSS(Zero Suit Samus) for your avatar. There’s bound to be many other people that have it.

I really liked the size/pose of the previous avatar that I used. It also helped that it was pretty unique… like, I don’t think I can find that image on google as easily unless I specifically search for it.


#6

By Shadow I mean your first avatar had a silhouette instead of definition. Fair enough about wanting to be unique. What kind of geometric shapes do you like? Spheres, ovals, squares, randomness, pentagons? Do you like jagged edges? Textures?


#7

Any can do. I’m just unsure what to try and make. Overall, I dislike having any kind of shape in the background unless it’s part of it (IE. a globe of the earth).

I am definitely interested in silhouettes. A couple of things on google caught my eye but I don’t have the neccessary experience to recreate them as silhouettes.




How would the [PC] competitive community feel about these ideas

Here are a couple silhouettes I found that might help me narrow down what you are looking for. Do either of these work?

This one reminds me of Goliath.


#9

No =\ It does help narrow things down a bit though.


#10

Thats a plus though :slight_smile:
