Calling all artists and designers
    #1963260 - 09/29/03 05:49 PM (13 years, 2 months ago)

Skultamaphon needs your help!

That is, in creating images, big or small, to be used in a flash-based website. Ideally we would like the Skultamaphon logo separated from the picture, and a background image or two.. preferably with a space/energy/spirit/matter or forest theme. A new logo or three would also be nice, as would any creative outbursts.

We can't pay you, (yet  :wink:) but your contributions will be more than appreciated, as well as credit given where it is due.  Help to sanctify the future of metal.

Peace.

Here's a work I did a while back for a cd-cover contest (bummer.. I lost :wink:) for a compliation cd entitled "another demention"



feel free to use it however you'd like if you like it.. if you don't like it, feel free to say "ha dude no wonder you lost!!"

edit: there's kind of an S in the middle there.. could easily be "emphasized"


--------------------
Insert an "I think" mentally in front of eveything I say that seems sketchy, because I certainly don't KNOW much. Also; feel free to yell at me.

Woah that's cool..
I think we may actually use that.. perhaps in the liner notes of our first cd...if that's cool with you  :smile:

Edit: I just saw that thing about the "S"...that would be awesome! We've been toying with the idea of having an original, recognizable S logo for stickers and stuff, as Skultamaphon is long. The artist in the band made one in photoshop that looked pretty cool.. all misty and smokey and stuff. But he's not the master of photoshop by any means.

No I don't have a pic of just the logo.. that's why I'm asking.
I did.. it was on a zip disk with the pdf file and all the layers and everything.. but it mysteriously dissapeared... I don't know if it's possible to extract the logo from the .jpg..or if we have to make a new one. Probably the former but it will look like crap right? I thought so. Meh...

You'd probably be better off making a new logo. Cutting out around that fuzzy purple looks like a serious pain in the ass, and yeah, it may not even look nice once its done as the edges are feathered considerably. I'll give that image extraction a shot today when I get some free time, but I can't promise anything! :grin:

just noticed this thread..

Hey, could you post some links in this thread for general layout-y type stuff you wanna use? Maybe tell everyone what sort of feeling you want out of the website?
( coordinating stuff would be really, really nice )

"I think we may actually use that.. perhaps in the liner notes of our first cd...if that's cool with you :smile:"

I'd be honored :smile:

I'm on a very late lunch-break right now but when I get home from work I'll toy around with that S shape that naturally appears in the middle of this design and see if I can get it to stand out a bit more defined.. It looks promising as a cool-looking "S" type logo..

here's an older work of mine that I've always felt would look really cool printed on a CD itself (due to the hole in the middle)... Of course if the cd cover and inlays and stuff are a different "style" it wouldn't be a practical but hey I might as well supply the pic:



I call it the Psychedelic Spore :wink: - feel free to discard it :smile:

    #1967154 - 09/30/03 08:48 PM (13 years, 2 months ago)

Yeah.. here's the kind of layout I'm thinking about

Stuff like this - www.geocities.com/scrotesque
This - www.skinkrawl.com or www.stuckinkaos.com
This - www.OrganizedHostility.com

This is a cool layout - http://www.dimmu-borgir.com/
Even this is an awesome website - http://www.opeth.com/

Just stuff to give a few ideas.. though we aren't into that whole death and destruction deal. More like Creation and Magic and Supernatual powers and psychic abilities  :laugh:

That?s pretty cool Strumpling..not sure if I like the color scheme though. Too pastelly or something for my tastes...

But check out what adrug did  :laugh:  :laugh: :laugh:

Fucking a right... :heart: :heart:..thank you

Check our webpage for a nice surprise :laugh: 
Well... that?s a start at least.

Well, That's all very nice, but what you need is some animation...

And an even better band, especially live! :grin:

I'm not into the whole black metal scene, but their music is just so fucking spectacular; melodic, heavy, good songs, and the liberal usage of synths... definitely a corner stone of the Skooma sound.

If I was an artist, I'd definitely be more than happy to come up with a logo for you, (and my band as well, heh), but I guess all I can promise is a fucking kick-ass band that will put on a hell of a fucking show and a hell of a fucking party afterwards! :grin:
Peace.

Okay, heres what I?ve gotten so far, btw I wasnt aware till just now that you didnt want the logo to be seperate from the pics, but no worries, i can take em off if you want...I?m still trying to get a good woodland forest thingy going on, but keep in mind every artist has their own style of course, and I usually do "Dark art" the most, so its a bit of an uncharted sea for me to do nature and stuff, but i enjoy a challenge here and there :wink:
anyhoo, this is what I got for you so far...if you have any requests for adjustments or anything just ask :smile:

Wow... those are all really cool..

I especially like the logo on the first one.. and the third picture the most. Could you put the first logo on the third picture? Maybe make the logo a little easier to make out..like spread the purple evenly..maybe add some kind of texture effect, I dont know..those are pretty fucking awesome.. I'm going to send them to one of the band members right now and see what he thinks. I also really like the last one..could you try that logo in neon green? I really like the second to last one.. I think I might use that for our intro page or something..

edit: oh, I lightened up a few of the pics and they look a lot better. Especially the third, fourth and fifth.. look much more defined.

Thanks for the pimping sig again :laugh:
For everyone wondering Skorpivo made my sig as well as a few others  :thumbup:

Okay I have here a couple of dividers...
heres a nice large one that I personally dig the most...
(notice the skull in between)



and heres a bit of smaller one, also skull related.. :smile:


and here's a couple versions of the third picture you liked, with the same logo on the first pic...
The red-diffused-fog in the second one is just to show you what else I can do..same goes for the different color-styles of the logo itself...when you've made your final decisions on any of these is when I stop doing a lil "extra" stuff just to show you what I can do, unless requested otherwise of course :wink:





ahh fuck i've met my upload limit for the day...I hope  the shroomery upgrades and boosts up the limit a couple hundred KBs or so in the future...
anyway I got the other one with the planet earth in space with liquid ripples with the neon green so i'll post it here tommorrow inna bout 24 hrs or so, along with any new outbursts of creativity I spawned :wink:

awesome..sweetness. :cool:
That moonset pic is almost CD cover material :laugh:

Here?s what I did to that one pic..just added some light contrast with my shitty pic program and resized it..as you can see it brings out the picture a lot more


Is there any way to animate this pic? Like just make it look like gas waves are moving around in it.. maybe have the gargoyles eyes glowing.. or have the Skultamaphon logo a little bigger.. maybe have it undulating or something.. I don?t know just throwing out ideas.
I?d like to use that pic for the intro page for our flash site.. so if it was animated that would kick ass.

I think we have enough still art now for a nice website :cool:
But a forest scene or two would be cool and a couple new logos couldn?t hurt..just to have some choices. Look at a bunch of metal band logos (Metallica, Opeth, In Flames, etc) and you?ll see the similarities. And like someone said some animation is what we need for flash now.

But fuck yeah  :laugh: :thumbup: :thumbup:

that's a cool pic but it looks like a copyrighted image from a book or something, so there might be some legal issues if you want to use it as a logo or album cover. i would go with 100% original images, or get permission from the original artist.
