Hey guys, and thanks for checking out my request. As you can see by the title, I am at a severe loss for creativity here, and so I need to ask each of you to lend me yours to make me the most amazingly epic signature picture ever. Feel up to the task? Then read on, young artist.
Okay, so lately, I've been very interested *cough* obsessed *cough* with the idea of ficticious swordsmen. I'm talking about the guys from movies (Anakin Skywalker, Aragorn, Conan the Barbarian) and video games (Link, Shulk, Cloud Strife) alike. Basically, what I'm looking for in a signature is all of the greatest ficticious swordsmen in history gathered into one awesome signature. Still feeling good about this? Wait, it gets better.
Unfortunately, I can't provide pictures of all the swordsmen, but I can provide a decent list of all the ones I definitely want on the picture. If you think you'd be willing to do the digging for the pictures yourself, then you're probably good for this job. Sorry guys, but I have a lot to do lately, so I can't find the time to gather a list of pictures. Now, those of you that still want to work on this project, keep reading for my more in-depth description of the picture.
For the fighters themselves, I want a picture of each of the swordsmen, in their most awesome poses and stances possible, to be taken and cropped together into the picture, in something of an overlapping group of warriors, if that at all makes sense.
As far as design goes, I'm not really picky about backgrounds and frames and such, so long as it looks cool. I think the background needs to be somewhere epic, like an inferno or a swirling void or even an ancient chapel, or maybe just in a plain meadow with a sunrise behind them. Whatever you want to do there, I'll probably be okay with. Here's an idea to toy with: Maybe you can crop a semi-transparent picture of each of the swords the warriors used into the background. Not necessary, especially if it ends up taking up too much room, but hey, it's an idea.
Here's a little list of the main characters I want to be put into the image. Feel free to add any more if you want along the way.
Indigo Montoya (you killed my father, prepare to die)
The Black Knight
Duncan Macleod, the Highlander
Conan the Barbarian
King Arthur (I know he's not fictional, but Excalibur is awesome)
The Three Musketeers
I realize that's a pretty freaking long list of swordsmen, but that's just the unabridged version. I just listed off all the swordsmen heroes I knew of for that, but I don't really want every one of those. Instead, here's a list of all the swordsmen I definitely want on the image.
The Black Knight
Duncan MacLeod, the Highlander
So, yeah, I know I ask a lot for this, and you'll only be working for experience on top of, but that's the basic principle behind it. Any questions? Comments? Concerns? Please let me know if you'd be willing to try this out.
