    Calle's GFX Application.

    Post by Plazzeh on Fri Oct 28, 2011 12:27 pm


    ~ B a s i c I n f o ~
    Name:
    Carl-Gustaf Rosengren. (Nickname; Calle)

    In-Game Name:
    Life

    Age:
    14.

    Location:
    Skåne, southern Sweden.(GMT +1 or CET.)

    Are you an Illustrator or Graphic Designer?:
    Graphic Designer.


    Short Biography.
    I'm a 14 year old guy living in southern Sweden. My parents
    are split, but they're friends, so I don't really mind. I was born in
    Vänersborg, Sweden and then we moved around for a couple of years until
    we settled here in Viken, southern Sweden. I've lived here since I was
    4, and this is the place I feel like I want to live all my life. I'm
    crazy about soccer. I play in our local team, though I'm not that good
    as I started when I was 10, as while the others started about the age of
    5... Anywho, as I love soccer, I play a LOT of FIFA. Like really, it's
    an addiction. o_o"
    I found out about maple just the day before I turned 9, and it's a game I
    have loved, even though I think it has become more and more boring,
    (GMS that is), I just can't leave it. Too many memories lie in this
    game. o3o
    I love designing. All kinds of. I may not be the best, but I always try to become better.
    I'm a person that argues a lot. It lies in my blood, hehe. I was born by two lawyers, that's why.
    Otherwise people say that I tend to have really great opinions and that I
    express my them through my words in a really good and intellectual way.
    (Not nerdy though o-o")
    I'm quite tall for my age, 180cm's to be exact. I'm happy with that. I
    tend to be positive at as much as I can. I can't say that I'm exactly always positive, but all in all I try though.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    How long have you been Designing?

    I found out about Adobe Photoshop at the age of 10, but at that time I really didn't learn it. I found brushes and thats basically what I did to edit. I took downloaded brushes and put them onto a picture made with the gradient tool and then I put a maple character or similar in it. Nothing big.
    Although, this spring, I really kinda got into it and put more work into what I do, and that results in better graphics, of course. Now I'm more proud of my works than I've ever been. I also work in Cinema 4D and Adobe After Effects, not as much though.

    Why would you choose me?
    Because I'm an enthusiastic designer. I love designing, and I tend to do it a lot. I'm really active here, I love this community, as I've been here for about a year and a half I've found this to be a second family of mine. To help this community out and to design is like a dream to me. I have actually dreamt about it. No kidding. o_o''
    I try to put a lot of thought and effort into my work, and I always appreciate criticism and use it to enhance my skills, so that I can become a better artist.


    Past GFX experiences~
    I am familiar with designing maplestory UI. I had my own server a couple of years ago, which I held privately for me and my friends. One of my main objects was to add a lot of customization. I never learned anything with map-making, as I closed the server while getting interest for it. But I did use HaRepacker a lot to edit the UI of the game. Ex, I changed login screen, the hp/mp/exp bars, the inventory, the cs/mts buttons and some more.

    Examples of my works;

    I love your attitude. Persistent, positive, and actually taking people's criticism well. ^____^
    I enjoy looking at your works, they're very creative and PRETTY.
    But, there's still room to improve.

    I'd love to see you as a GFX.

    Please put a poll on your application.
    You have a nice personality.
    However, your graphics can improve and I know you can improve.

    Try working on typography, text placement, and color schemes.
    (This is an opinion thing, but try to work less around round borders. Round borders to me, fit more ~*~kawaii cutesy~*~ stuff rather than some of your dark-er signatures.)
    Oh and uhh lighting if that's possible. With Maple graphics it's not really a big deal so.. yeah. It will make things more interesting and dynamic.

    Calle! Yay :D
    Your work is awesome, personality as well!
    As Andy said, do work on typography,placement and color!
    Perhaps make the angle of the round borders smaller, get what I'm sayin?
    It can change sizes depending on the mood you're trying to achieve, don't you think? :)
    Well, good luck! <3

    Adam; OH YEAAH! :D

    Andy; I forgot the poll, added now though :)
    And yeah, I can actually agree with what you're saying. The point of my round borders have been to give a more smooth feeling, but I can see what you mean.

    Jae; I definately see what you mean with the borders. Thanks! :) <3

    Thank you very much! :)


    New sig! :)
    Currently my external harddrive with a lot of editing items is on repair, so this one is made entirely by putting together tiles, then using what photoshop has to give naturally! I'll see this as an opportunity to learn typography & the basic color correction better.

    Cnc is appreciated!

    it looks NICE
    - Try blurring that small tree(s) in the back for depth.
    - I personally do not like the texts in different angles, but that's an opinion thing

    Try more solid text without any effects behind it. Lol, another opinion thing

    but ya i liek a lot tho

    Thanks Andy! :)

    1 - I blurred out the trees, added a black outline, and added a watermark as I forgot to do with the original.

    2 - Then I made another version without effects on the text, and a different font for the "be happy" part. Personally, I actually like the one with the new text.

    1:

    2:

    EDIT; I made a mistake in the second one, as I must've changed the "be happy" font again by mistake. It's actually supposed to be like this, but oh well.

    Alright, so ignore the weird smudging I did to ~*erase*~ your current text...
    Something about the text space irks me a bit.

    Hopefully, this might help you (?) Font color choices are random

    Clean cut simple

    I generally go by making the first words/phrases small and then make the main word or phrase the biggest.

    "Angled" thing. Uhh yeah, angled text generally does not have a good outcome on small font, but I kinda tried what you were trying..


    Almost always, you want to stick with a two fonts that are the same or blend together nicely. (Ex: Simple font phrase + cursive font main word combo) or something... yeah this makes no sense lol..

    I used the highest quality photoshop could give Q-Q
    If you know a better way, please tell me!

    And thanks a lot! :)

    Edit: It's 6:10 AM, haha... anywho, I'm having a lot of free time -> lots of pictures.

    Expect a lot of updates from now until sunday. I'm on a "LAN-party", so basically I'll be by my computer all the time. Almost. I'll have to sleep too.. LOL I'm going wayy off topic.

    To the point, I made a banner. Just cause, I have nothing to do really at 6 AM...

    Spoiler:

    This time I really tried to keep it simple & clean. But still with some edits to make it interesting, did the typography workout? I think so. :)

    Uhh, I don't really like the fonts you used for the banner ..
    I also don't like the edits you made to it ..
    Nor do I like the placement of some of the map items ..
    .. I like the penguin, though .. Because it's fat, and the snow on it's head resembles semen.

    The other stuff you've posted look great, but this fucking banner is just bad, in my opinion.
    It does look simple, but it's not very clean.

    Mmmkay.. Um, could you possibly give me some kind of point to make me improve?

    I can't really make it better if I don't know exactly what it is that makes you unlike it, and what I'd have to do to make you like it.

    Then again, everyone can't like my works. But as you said, you did like the others. Thanks. :)

    Well it just looks like you just added a maplestory background, cropped it and then tweaked the colour curves to make it seem more 'dim' and 'darker' to make it look like it's night time, and then all you did was add words to that picture. You should really just choose two fonts with SIMILAR structure or patterns or whatever it's called. Because you added that 'Prosperity' with some pokemon font which REALLY does not match with the word. The words on the snow rope thing.. isn't that great, if you want to do something like that, make it STAND out! And it isn't really typography since it's only two or three words in that background. Use your imagination get wild!

    I actually put the map together by myself. Tile by tile, so no I didn't just take a random picture & add curves. I made an autenthic maple map with a wintery-night theme, and then I added curves & vibrance to get more interest to the picture. I also added a vignette, but it's not too obvious. Just felt like saying that, because I was kinda offended :/

    As you probably have seen, typography isn't my strongest side. But I do what I can to improve it.

    The way I put the word "Prosperity", was to be a bit like the one in the current banner, but still not exactly. That's because I like the way it's currently written in the forum's banner. I don't see that "pokémon" feel to that font, so I can't really get what you mean...

    And the letters on the rope, was basically because I wanted the letters to be easily seen, and basically why I didn't add any effects to it at all was because the past times I've done so I've been told to make it simple and without effects to get a solid text..

    As you might see, I'm quite confused within typography, but this also proves to me what I feel that I really have to practice. Give me any tips that you have, that stand aside from the one's that Andy gave me. I'll be looking around the internet to see what I can find.

    Thanks! :)

    honestly, i don't see anything wrong with the map but i'm no map maker so...
    It's nice, but just choose better fonts. The fonts that come installed in everyone's computer looks the most attractive to me instead of those dafonts. This might be just me though..
