aurevoir's graphics

Recommended Posts

Hello! I figured since I have a bit of free time on my hands, I could offer to do graphics. I'm not always great at remembering to update everything, but +Here is my gallery posted on HPFT and +Here is my DeviantArt page. I also post things (including picspams) on my tumblr from time to time +Here

Graphics I'll Make: I'm comfortable making banners, chapter images, signatures (w/matching icons), picspams, and blends/headers. If you want something else, please send me a message first - I'm not a huge fan of doing website graphics (outside of headers) and other things (even though I used to do awards at Shadowplay), but I've been known to do them time to time. 

Where You Can Rehost Them: Anywhere you want as long as you credit me (aurevoir @ hpft or cassielassie @ deviantart).

Slots: Please no more than two requestors at a time. In your request, please limit the number of graphics to 2 or 3. I.e., if you want a banner and matching chapter image, that's fine, but please don't ask for a banner and 5 chapter images or banners for unrelated stories, etc. 

Turnaround: Generally give me a week from posting a request before shooting me a message - I'm a bit more free now (given ... life and the work I do), but when things get back to normal I likely will get busier at work again. 

Other/random: For images/photos of people, I prefer to not use social media type posts of people - it kind of freaks me out, especially when it's someone who's just tangentially social media popular, for reasons I don't really know and often times these images aren't great quality for graphics. Also, please try to keep provided images medium/high quality - if an image is too pixelated, it's hard to do the graphic justice!

Also - if you're like me and have certain songs that tend to be a "theme" for a whole story / character, etc., please feel free to tell me what the song is and I'll listen to it to get an idea (I tend to listen to certain songs when going for a certain mood). 

 

Quote

Story and Author Name, including link: [if you don't have a link yet, let the artist know; they may or may not choose to fill the request anyway]

Graphic type/dimensions:

Sites you intend to use the graphic on:

What you'd like on the graphic: [this includes text, characters/faceclaims, mood/theme, specific items/settings, etc]

Hi Cassie! I'm Melanie. May I be your first customer? :rose:I've been wanting to get a fresh banner for an old, resurrected fic now that I've found face claims I like, and I love your work! :wub:

Story and Author Name, including link: Irrational by RonsGirlFriday

Graphic type/dimensions: Banner 700x150

Sites you intend to use the graphic on: HPFT, AO3, and maybe HPFF

What you'd like on the graphic:

Text:

  • The title and my penname
  • A little quote somewhere on there: "I feel it, too."

Characters:

  • Percy Weasley -- face claim Linus Wordemann -- here are several specific photos I like for him, in order of preference: [1] [2-on the left, with the glasses] [3] [4]
  • Audrey -- face claim Jenna Coleman -- specific photos I like, in order: [1] [2] [3] [4] [5]
  • Please forgive me if I missed the mark on trying to provide good quality images; I am the furthest thing from a graphic artist. Let me know if these are not working out. (The issue with both of these characters is that they are not nearly as pretty/glam as most of the photos you'll find of the face claims, but all models/celebs are beautiful, so what is a girl to do?) 9_9

Objects: I'm not too picky, though if you could work a crossword puzzle in there somehow I'd be over the moon. Romantic things like flowers/leaves are lovely.

Mood/theme: The story is a... gentle romance, if that makes sense? Two very emotionally cautious people who get to know each other and end up falling hard, with a few speed bumps. Think adorkable nerds being awkward and lovely, with some moments where there are deep issues and deep feels. Overall, it's a happy vibe.

Colors, etc: I really like the level of brightness or vibrancy in your "Goodbye" Dramione blend and your "Sometimes" chapter image shown in your gallery. I don't have specific colors, I'll leave that up to whatever you feel inspired to do. Even though it's romantic, I'm not necessarily going for uber feminine -- so, not a pink explosion. I like when colors like that are balanced out with blue or green, for example.

 

Playlist -- I love that you ask for songs! A few songs that I feel are pretty representative of the mood for this fic are:

  • "This Never Happened Before" -- Paul McCartney
  • "Falling In Love With You" -- cover by Ingrid Michaelson
  • "Fallin' for You" -- Colbie Caillat

 

Thank you so much, and PS -- Did I see on your gallery that you're a tax lawyer?? 👀 I, too, am a lawyer, though things like taxes/ corporations/ actual-smart-people-things make my brain melt.

If I may make a little amendment to my request above — for Percy’s face claim, the 3rd image I linked is actually going to be my first preference, with all the rest in the order provided (and...without the horse that’s randomly in that picture). But obviously, please use whichever ones are the best quality for your art.

Never again shall I post graphics requests at 3 AM.**

Thank you!

Of course, and thank you so much! Also you did provide some good quality images, I'll definitely be able to work with these (and I like the third image for Percy so that's perfect ha!). I'll work on this today and probably be able to share later tonight or tomorrow :)

Also, yes yes, haha. I'm about to send you a ramble message because I started to type it out here and it ended up being a lot of words lol.

@RonsGirlFriday I ended up with two versions - I felt like the clouds made it look 'softer' for the romantic feel, but wanted to give you the option without as well. Let me know if there's any changes you'd want!

This is so lovely!! Thank you for giving me the options -- I do prefer the one without the clouds; I favor a little bit of a sharper look usually. I do have a few requests for revisions. :kris:

Would it make your life very difficult if I ask if we can try getting rid of the second picture of Audrey at the far right? I think I'd like how it would look with just the one pic of each of them, and it looks like he's looking at her which is just :wub: 🙌. I know that would leave some blank space there -- don't know if that can be resolved by making the pics of them each a little bigger or??

If you could add my pen name somewhere on there in a corner that would be awesome, and if we could try the title in a different color (I'm not a big fan of baby pink, which is really my fault for not saying in the first place) -- something that would still stand out enough to be legible, maybe like a purple or yellow?

Sometimes it just takes actually seeing a completed visual to help me figure out what in the world it is I'm really after, so I'm so sorry if this is high maintenance.

No worries! It shouldn’t take me long to do any of those updates, I’ll get them done in the AM (I’m a few whiteclaws in tonight after a zoom with some friends 😂)

Hey there! I don't believe we've met. I'm Lily! Could I be your second customer? Love your work in you gallery by the way, and the banner you did for Melanie looks so lovely <3

Story and Author Name, including link: Taken From Me+ (mature) by ImaRavenclaw

Graphic type/dimensions: Banner (700x150)

Sites you intend to use the graphic on: HPFT and maybe AO3

What you'd like on the graphic: The title of the story, my penname, and a quote: Sisters share everything... Even pain.

This is a very angsty and dark story about abuse, so colours should reflect that. I really like the idea of really cold nearly grey blues but I'll leave it up to you.

I'd really like Riley Hillyer as Dominique Weasley. If you can't find good images then feel free to use pretty much any not super super well known blonde. If she looks threatened then whoo!

And then Simon van Meervenne as Teddy Lupin. But again, if you can't find images just someone who has brown hair. Looking angry/threatening is a bonus. 

And then just any blonde in the background (as a memory) as Victoire Weasley

The story mostly takes place at Shell Cottage if that's any help? I don't want this to be a difficult request, so just do you!

@ImaRavenclaw Hi Lily, nice to meet you! And of course, of course. Angst is my heart and soul in graphics so I'm already excited :) I think they both have perfectly workable photos as well. I'm not sure what work looks like tomorrow, so may slip a little closer to the weekend for timing!

@aurevoir This is so great! You really captured the story! Is it possible for it to be a little less black and white though? I'm also not a huge of the gold for the lettering. If not I can take it as is as it's already lovely!

No worries! I didn't fully intend for it to go so black and white in the background, haha. See two color options below.

Hi Cassie! May I request a banner for a story I'll be putting in the queue tonight?

Story and Author Name, including link: Existential Equilibrium by Noelle Zingarella (You can see a draft of it here (M)+ and I'll post the link to the archives when it's up there.

Graphic type/dimensions: banner/700x150

Sites you intend to use the graphic on: HPFT

What you'd like on the graphic:

Text: 

  • the story title: Existential Equilibrium
  • the quote: It was all a dream.

Characters/faceclaims: This is a piece of original fiction and I don't have a faceclaim for the main character. If this (M in case)+ photo would work with the design of the graphic, that's great--but if it doesn't, then I don't necessarily need a specific person on it.

Mood/Theme: So this story is Felix Villon's (my MC) dream journal. He's keeping the journal at the insistence of his therapist. The journal itself is sometimes sarcastic, sometimes rude, sometimes funny, and sometimes creepy. So I guess the moods are dream-like; a little creepy (but not horror), a little humorous, and a little abstract. I've got a pinterest board for it here (M in case)+. All the chemistry/science stuff is because Felix is a lab scientist by profession; and he likes bad puns.

Playlist: (all links rated M in case) (lol, I didn't start out to make this a Johnny Cash fest, but here it is)

hiiii correct me if i'm wrong but you are willing to take two requests at a time? if i'm wrong please ignore me! 

Story and Author Name, including link: zero possibility+ by sunshine_locks

Graphic type/dimensions: 750 x 150

Sites you intend to use the graphic on: just hpft! 

What you'd like on the graphic: huang zitao (gallery here+) and nam joo-hyuk (gallery here+)? i'd really like it if you use images where they're both smiling (or at least half smiling, haha. i know huang zitao doesn't have a full smile in any of these pics lol)! and if these images don't work for you, please feel free to use your own! also, this is a humurous/light story, so maybe a color scheme that goes along with that? 

thank you so much!

and if i had to choose a song for this story... maybe this one+ (m)?

@greisful should be able to get to yours this weekend too! do you have any specific colors you think of for your story or you would prefer I avoid (i.e., pinks for some people are aversion, etc.) - I saw it was fluff tagged on the forum.

@sunshine_locks let me know if this works or you'd like any changes! I wasn't sure if you wanted any quote or your penname, but both would be pretty easy to add if you'd like.

@greisful I'll probably finish yours tomorrow - in a similar vein, let me know if you want any quote.
