Hi again siggy designers.

I fancy a new siggy to go with my temporary new corp.

Prize is simple 20 million ISK for the winner.
prize only for first place.
runtime is one week from this post.

Stuffs to help:

Silver Service "A dish best served cold" or "serve it cold"
Amarr in flavour
I am in a vindictive mood
Upper class and snobby
Secretive
Obnoxious
Troubled
Betrayed
Emotionally detached
Manic depressive
Proud & pompous
Old
Hatred for anything gheylente or Minnie and thinks all caldari ships look like flying warehouses
*edit* Think John Cleese as a waiter in a posh restuarant having to serve some common unwashed tramp and your thinking along the right linesLaughing

Like contemporary & funny designs with clean lines and shiney things on.
fave ships: Damnation, Absolution, Pilgrim, Curse, Both amarr intys and the mighty Sacrilege. (emote still wishes he could get black tech2 gun models to match. FFS its like wearing a tux with brown shoes on)

I hope that all helps.

If you need anymore info get me in game or this thread.

-Dumus-



FYI- the current siggy is was done by world renouned cartoonist Ian Baker. He shares an office with meWink

Hmmm not reading the OP fully FTLWink

They are ldeas not demands!!!

Its up to you what you do. The only thing I would truly like in it somewhere is the Corp logo. So come on show me how creative you are at putting my "suggestions" of my character into practice.

Is it my job to translate your odd way of typing or your job to be clear about what you're saying.
The amount of sigs in here speaks for itself.

Leave the ideas to the artists.

Ok which part of "stuffs to help" didn't you understand? At no point did I say "I want these things in" I told you a little about my character, giving you key words to describe the sort of person he is, I told you what ships I like, at no point saying "put these ships in my siggy". I gave you a scenario to let your "creative mind" think about. Or would rather I asked for "a siggy please kthxbye" and give you no other information about me?

I have done this before and all the artists that did siggys for me wanted as much information in which to form some creative ideas based on information I have given them. They were not so far up their own behinds as to assume they knew it all and know how to work to a commission.
I am also a creative professional, I work in Video as an editor, and know the value of listening to my customers needs and wants and place a high value on their input. Without it my work lessens its impact on them and the audience they are trying to reach. IMO graphic artist work to the same ethos. I suggest you try it. It may help you.

Nice effort!

Regarding the "low" prize. I did my research and alot of the designers charge alot less than this. So it's in the right ball park. If I could afford it I would pay more but I cant so...

Anyway nice job so far thanksVery Happy

I like it Cailais, I would prefer the text bottom centred though I think and maybe a more erm classy font like the little picture looks very art deco in flavour so something from that era would maybe look nice. Nice that you got the new BC in thereWink

Great effort thanks

When I think "upper class and snobby," I think Navy Slicer. :P I went with the Slicer and the Malediction, not too complicated. And I thought "Best Served Cold" looked better than "Serve It Cold" so I went with that.

Doesn't fit all your suggestions but I hope you like it anyway. Smile

Ready to earn your absolution?

Did something after a while with my wacom tablet. Unfortunately, the portrait is vertical instead of hortizontal, so everybody'll have to tilt their heads 90CCW to see it properly Razz
It is shiny, it is amarr, it is you!

Don't worry, fixing sizes is a snap so don't bother getting too deep into details before you choose your siggy

Obviously, I was more inspired by the "vindictive mood" and the troubled and betrayed aspects of your persona. The whole pompous, uptight and snobish personality comes naturaly from being amarr so I didn't feel it was necessary to put more emphasis on that anyway. Wink Besides, if standing next to a gold plated ship in a gold plated station doesn'T say enough about that, I don't know what will...

I'm glad you like it. I almost went with a Boss Hog theme (Dukes of Hazard) but I decided the Punisher was much cooler. Sorry to all the Boss Hog fans out there but the Punisher would kick his fat behind from one end of Hazard county to the other and back again.

Hah! You make me laugh, slaver!
Your race will have it name capitalized when you show some respect to the rest of the galaxy. Until then, the first "a" in amarr will remain so to remind you of how big I think of your kind.[/IC]

Lol I'd enter if my english skills allowed me to understand the inspiration you are trying to give us :)

I think it's great that you try to give us inspiration, instead of the *very* demanding ''inspirations'' posted sometimes.


With clean lines, what do you then mean? Drawings or ''simple'' sigs? (No offence - I like those alot, just dont know what to call them and I think you know what I mean)

Thanks for your responseSmile

I tried to give as many "keywords" to desribe the character I play in game, and as many traits he has as I could. Its up to the artist to use or not use them as he/she sees fit.
By clean lines perhaps if I said Shaker furniture has clean lines and Chippendale was too busySmile So if you think of remaining clutter free as possible that would be cool. Or think of the ISD sigs, they have nice "clean lines". I know its difficult to achieve with such a small thing as a siggy but then hey thats why I want someone else to do it Laughing

It's minimalistic, noble, no unneeded cram, simply the whole point of Silver Service - serving destruction with style.

Now this I really really like. Well done!Very Happy

My only criticism is the tag line. I am never keen on bragging. I am never presumtious enough to assume I am better at pvp than anyone else. No-one like a smart ass, if you get me. I would prefer some thing with the theme Its always served cold, serve it cold, or some such thing. You do not have to use my wording though.
I hope you understand my meaning, Cos I really like this design.
