Greetings, dear Dissidia Forums members and lurkers. I am Kayarine, a prized and amazing artist-- Wait, this is not what I'm supposed to say. Who the heck gave me this script!? Ahem. Anyway, I'm Kayarine and I make graphics. I've done a number of works for Dissidia Forums in the past, both officially and as member requests. I'm often out of inspiration and/or motivation however, which is the reason requests are often closed for long periods of time.
Feel free to offer critique to help me improve!
Tool of the trade: Adobe Photoshop CS3 Started GFXing in: 2008 Graphic portfolios:Imperial Code • deviantART GFX likes: Blue, lots of light and shiny decorations, vivid colors, making everything over the top, paying way too much attention to details
Requests are: CLOSED
In an effort to try to practice more graphic making, I'll be taking some requests. But please keep in mind that I will NOT take every request. I usually try to make each graphic distinct from others I've made in the past, so my creativity isn't exactly infinite. If I feel I cannot come up with anything for your request, I'll decline. If you'd like to prevent this from happening, supply as many details as you can. Don't just give me an image and call it a day. If I think the image you've supplied can't be worked with, I will ask for a different image or look for one on my own (so it helps if you tell me the name of the character and where s/he is from.)
If you're not happy with the final result, I'll be willing to make tweaks to the graphic. I will not redesign something from scratch in most cases, only small changes or render replacement, etc.
Things I can make: Avatars, signatures, banners, wallpapers (PSP or desktop)
I may make other things as well. Ask me and give me the specifics if you'd like a graphic or edit that isn't any of the above.
You may only request if you have over 50 posts.
You may not request a graphic if you requested the same type of graphic less than a week ago, either from myself or another graphicker on the forum. e.g: If you requested a signature from someone else less than a week ago, I won't take your signature request. You're free to request a different type of graphic, though.
Do not request if you're not willing to use the graphic for a reasonable amount of time before replacing it
Say "spoony" somewhere in your request post if you've read all of the rules.
If I make you an avatar or signature, please credit me in your signature. If I make a thread banner, please credit me in the thread where it's used.
Use the request form or your request will be ignored.
Size: 400x120 (Alternatively, you can just say 'avatar', 'signature', etc.) Image(s):http://i42.tinypic.com/zvubti.jpg(I will not use more than 2 characters in an avatar or signature. Please provide a large picture if you're requesting a wallpaper) Text: Mitsuru Kirijo (Optional. You may specify which type of font you want the text to be.) Style:http://pics.livejournal.com/kayarine/pic/000rxxf7(Optional. Here you specify if you'd like me to use a similar style to another graphic or tell me what particular style you'd like me to attempt.) Other details:(Optional. You can specify things like colors, theme and any other things you'd like.)
Here's a few samples. Please click here if you'd like to see all of my works.
You may take any of them for your use, but do not claim as your own.

If you'd like help with Photoshop or critique on your graphics, feel free to ask! Sometimes I also write tutorials of my graphics when asked to. Here's a compilation of the tutorials I've written so far, from newest to oldest. They should be beginner-friendly as I try to explain the steps and thought process extensively. I suggest taking a look at my wallpaper tutorials even if you have no interest in creating wallpapers.
In addition, I'll link to useful stuff, written by others, that have helped me in the past. Make sure to check them if you have a question regarding something I do or use! (*cough*text*cough*) Please do not mind the fact that some of these are for icons (avatars,) the fundamentals they teach are valuable for any size of image.
I didn't know what to put as the text, so I just used the same one you used in your signature. I tried to make the theme fit him, but I'm not used to making dark things... Let me know if you want anything changed.
Thanks, Crono~ I'd be happy to make you an avatar if she didn't make one yet.
