    Hello dear Photoshoppers! I've written this topic with a simple, humble request. You each posses the artistic ability of being able to wield Photoshop like a magical blade of chocolate-ly light. I'm asking you all to take a stab at a sig/avatar combo request. The theme is "Retro Boo". The sig and avatar must be modeled after the Boo characters from the Super Mario series and must have a sense of nostalgic themes within. Model the style as you wish, but please try to retain as much of a classic Boo feel as you can!

    Hints:
    - Super Mario World Boo Sprite Sheets are your friend. They contain many main Boo poses (Boo with his hands covering eyes, tongue sticking out, etc.
    - Pixelation is great for helping to retain the classic feel. Pixelation is welcomed!
    - A sig and avatar are both needed. Choose one or go for both, what matters is that your input is received!
    - No text would be preferred


    I look forward to seeing what the GBAtemp community can produce from these guidelines! In the end, I will choose a new sig and avatar as my new combo. Your work will be displayed for all the world to see! What a wonderfully exciting and exhilarating feeling! Thanks in advance, Temps! [​IMG]

    so let me get this straight, you want us to make a sig and avatar for u, but you want us to compete for your approval?
    Why dont you just make your own?

    As I've stated, I can't do Photoshop, mainly because I don't own it. I never said you have to participate if you don't want to, just wanted to spice up the creativity within GBAtemp a bit. I know that there are a lot of talented artists in this community, I simply wanted to pull some out of the woodwork and see their artistic potential. Of course, I need a new sig and ava, so why not kill two birds with one stone? Lastly, I wouldn't look at it as "competing for my approval", as long as your artwork is posted here, you can receive exposure, constructive criticism, and praise from the community.

    Thanks Juggy! I appreciate your input! Is that your new rig in that wallpaper? *Drools* [​IMG]

    Someone might post a picture if you gave them alittle bit of green. I'm not too good with photoshop, but I'm better than average, it will take me two hours to do a job a pro could do in five minutes. Everybody's got to start somewhere:
