Photoshop: The wonders of face alteration

So I was bored a few months ago and decided to play around. I have a friend who we always tease about a lot of things, and this time I thought I might add a little twist to his personality by merging him with another one.

Haha, sorry my friend!

Note: I do not own Shrek and all its franchises and this is meant for fun purposes and no other.

Personal Sig: Avatar and Userbar

I made myself an avatar and a userbar for one of my guild's forums. Check the out below!

Kimmy Dora is my Warlock, and usually the character I use during WoE (War of Emperium).

Anabelle Rama is my Arch Bishop, and usually what I use for MVP hunts or farming.

Guild Emblems

Okay, so our guild leader has asked me to create an emblem for our guild, Affliction for Philippine Ragnarok Online - New Loki Server. I have no idea what to make!

So first thing I did, I searched google for "Skulls" and made up something out of it. Not really satisfied with my work, but oh well, I guess these will do for now.

Personal Sig: Kimmy Dora

Kimmy Dora is one of my favorite Filipino films OF ALL TIME. Why?
  1. Eugene Domingo
  2. Funniest Filipino Film -- EVER! I had to literally catch my breath because of so laughing so much, especially with the "Switch" scene, Dora had to switch from being Kimmy to herself and back. LOL.
  3. I can watch it over and over again, and I still laugh.
And so one of my characters in the private server, Essence Ragnarok Online is named Kimmy Dora. I decided to make my sig using the two characters of Eugene Domingo in this Movie: Kimmy and Dora. Hope you like it!

Personal Sig: Anabelle (Pt. 2)

Since the old sig I made didn't go well with light background, I decided to make another one. I used an image I downloaded a few years ago (Yes, I do keep downloads for that long), but unfortunately I was not able to take note of who the artist is. Sorry about that.

Without further adieu, here's a signature and avatar set I made:



The name of my character is Anabelle Rama, hence the name. For everyone's information, Anabelle Rama is a popular figure in the Philippines. She is mother to former Miss World Runner-up Ruffa Gutierrez and hunk actor Richard Gutierrez. She is always known for her fierceness and her being a "Bisaya" in Showbusiness.

Personal Sig: Anabelle

My name in Essence RO's forum is Anabelle, thus I made a sig. It's very simple but I love the colors (so girly and so pink). Unfortunately, it doesn't look good with white background. :(

Loading Screen Contest: Valentine Theme

The Ragnarok server I joined held another Loading Screen Contest for the month of February -- Just in time for the season of hearts. I really wanted to learn how to make chibi art, so I attempted to make loading screens and thus, I joined the contest. Again, the theme was anything related to Ragnarok and to Valentine season. Here are my entries:

This is the first loading screen I made. Cthulhu is my favorite MVP (no idea why), so I was inspired to make him all lovey-dovey for Valentines. I think I did pretty well with the characters, but over-all, this wallpaper lacked texture and depth. I could have added more scales to the Mermaid's fins, or more shadows and highlights, or more details to the undersea background.

Again, because Cthulhu is my favorite MVP, I made another wallpaper with him on it. This time, I experimented on shadows to add more depth, but I'm not really good at it. I think I made it look too cute -- and too plain.

This is probably one of the most time-consuming wallpapers I've ever made -- and from scratch too. I spent a lot of time working on the blacksmith, trying to get as much detail as I can. I think I did fairly well, but I've still got a long way to go. I love how this turned out to be so cutesy, and I also love the concept -- a regular character falling in love with an MVP. LOL. This entry won, and I got an event token for it. Yippee!

Finally, my last entry to the loading screen contest. I spent too much time working on the character (I found it really difficult to build this, I tell you), that I barely had time to work on the background and everything else. As a result, it's too simple, too plain, and too common. I thought this was my best work to date, but I guess it looked as if I didn't pour that much effort on it.

Again, if you're planning to play a mid-rate private server, please do join EssenceRO. It's a pretty balanced server with 3rd jobs and fun quests. And the community there is very helpful. Just drop by and PM my character, Anabelle Rama. =)

Loading Screen Contest

Last Christmas, I gave you my heart. Riighht. Just Kidding. What I meant to say is, last christmas, I joined a Loading Screen Contest organized by the GM's (Game Masters) of a Ragnarok Online Private Server I've joined. The theme was anything related to Ragnarok Online and to Christmas. I made some attempts, and here are the designs I came up with:

First ever attempt at chibi drawing, and at making it into a digital design. What I did was make a rough sketch on paper, scanned it and made some adjustments. I was never satisfied with this, so I never got to submit this. Lol.

Poooringgss!! Who doesn't love porings? So I made a Christmas tree out of the poring family. Who said drawing porings was a breeze? For an amateur like me, I found it really difficult, especially in getting the right texture and shadows. Well guess what, this entry won! I won an event ticket for this, and I got myself a Mario Cap. Whoo-hoo!

I tried to make a chibi character of my archbishop, but I found it to be pretty difficult. The result: A half-baked elf who doesn't know how to pose. LOL. I did try to make it more interesting by making designs for the background, and I was a bit satisfied with my work. But in the end, this wasn't chosen by the judges at all.

By the way, if you're planning to play a mid-rate private server, please do join EssenceRO. It's a pretty balanced server with 3rd jobs and fun quests. And the community there is very helpful. Just drop by and PM my character, Anabelle Rama. =)
