Banners!
« on: August 17, 2013, 10:22:44 AM »
If you liked the mod, look at the top right corner of this page. Yep, that's our Pocket Plane mod banner rotation, and neither The Sellswords nor Back to Brynnlaw have banners yet. I'm not good with pretty pictures, but if you are, your contribution to the cause is very welcome! Cowled Wizards, Kimmuriel's larger picture, interiors of the Underdark - take your pick.

I'll make you some banners - but to make it easier have you got any large versions of any portraits? I like to make banners BIG and then cut down the size. What size and what format do they need for the top right corner banner? I can make text "blurb" banners as well - any ideas what you'd like them to say?

Oh, if you want to check out stuff I've done here's the link to my Deviant Art Gallery http://kiwidoc.deviantart.com/

Thank you for the offer! Liriel from your gallery looks beautiful. I have portraits for Sellswords here: http://forums.pocketplane.net/index.php/topic,28501.msg332170.html#msg332170 (well, the authors do, I just link to them).
There're various pictures from the Sellswords trilogy, too. I guess we can use thumbnails:

I don't have any galleries from Brynnlaw, I'm afraid - maybe the game's artwork from Spellhold will do?
Here's what jcompton writes about banners
- Dimensions: 150x80
- Size: No more than 50K* **
- Format: Still JPG/PNG/GIF, or animated GIF
And the last slide(every PPG banner has it in some form) shows the Pocket Plane Group.

Possible text/slides for Back to Brynnlaw:
The haunted halls of Spellhold... (picture of Spellhold)
Imoen...(Imoen's portrait)
What are the Cowled Wizards planning?
Find out at
(last slide:) pocket plane group

Possible text/slides for the Sellswords:
Artemis Entreri(portrait from the books slide)
Jarlaxle(portrait from the book slide)
Kimmuriel Oblodra
The finest treasury of the Underdark
awaits you at
(last slide:) pocket plane group.

And if you'd like to do a Branwen banner, as well, you're very welcome to. :) With her portrait and text like
Old friends
Come together
Meet Branwen again at
pocket plane group

I may take a few days to make the banners - I have to pick a day when my health isn't playing silly buggers - but hopefully they'll be finished for when you get back.  also, thanks muchly for the nice comment about my Liriel :)

I've just proved myself a total liar - I got inspired and finished a banner for Back to Brynnlaw. Here's links to a big version, and to a smaller one that fits the specs you gave me.

I've finished the banner for Branwen - I've posted it here because she hasn't got her own forum. Once again she has a large version, and the small one for PPG

Oh, wow, that's so great! E-mailing it to jcompton now.

Her picture looks so dim at first, and then it's brighter and brighter - I loved it. :)

Sorry about the delay. You are very welcome - I loved making this banner as I love Branwen - her brash, sassy, bold style always makes me laugh. I wanted to make her appear almost invisible at the start, just a faded memory from BG1 who gradually comes back to full visibility as she comes back into the PC's life in BG2.

And it worked wonderfully. :)

(By the way, I've got banners for Xan and Tiax, but Coran is free and banner-less, too. He's a bit of a womanizer, though, so I understand if people don't like the guy).

Oooooh I utterly adore Coran! I played him with a "mad, bad and dangerous to know party" - a mix of good, neutral and bad but all really funny. I'll see if I can come with an idea  ;D

What do you think of using the phrase "Knave of Hearts" to describe Coran - it's another name for the Jack of Hearts. Coran is certainly a knave, and we know he has a thing for stealing hearts as well.
