Artwork wanted!
« on: October 05, 2006, 08:03:03 PM »
I've noticed that at least a few of our members here have some good artistic skills. I'd like someone to take a concept of mine and turn it into reality. I do have part of a specific image in my mind, but I'm open to suggestions and other ideas.

I know that different people are artistically different, and may have completely different ideas that are equally excellent, so I'd like to have at least a few people who are or think they might be interested to let me know and I'll get into the nitty gritty details later.

It would be nice if it was in Vector format so it would scale cleanly. I'm not sure on the ultimate size of the image, but something that would look good on a website.

I'd volunteer to help you out but I don't work with vector format....not even sure if PSP 7 can do that.

I used PSP from version 4 to version X skipping only version 9. I know version 8 handles vectors but I can't remember if 7 does.

If you remembered what year v8 came out I could tell you, because I was making some animations with vector layers in PSP back in the day. . .

Hey, I happen to have my CD right here for v7. The copyright on it says 1999-2000. I made some animations with it using vectors in January of 2000, so it should do it. Still, I'm not sure how able it was with vectors back then in the day.

I guess vector isn't a requirement. I just want it to be high quality, possibly for print, but also able to put on a website or something.

I didn't think about that. If it can be imported into Flash that would be great. If not. . . I guess Photoshop/illustrator would work. Macromedia is all Adobe now.

I'm not actually familiar with flash, but do use Macromedia FreeHand.
Its native file format saves very small, (FH.9 or 10 etc.).
I wonder could that be imported into Flash?

EPS would be I guess the most universal format but much bigger.

I guess its a good thing to think about at this stage,
rather than having something you cant convert to your needs at a later stage  :o  :)

Flash can definitely import FreeHand and EPS filetypes.

Filesize isn't a big issue for me. I just got a new hard drive and now have a total of 1TB of storage space.
