Post-Apocalypse Fishie Thread!

<---- There we go. I finally managed to get it uploaded. Makochan is cooking all your fishies for my dinner inside her pot!
If only the limitations were higher than 48*48 pixels though. *sigh*
Took me a lot of effort to size it down and retain some quality.

After trying out some fish avatars including a fish version of my original avatar, I really do feel contempt with my Voigt-Kampff machine, which probably wouldn't look good as a fish anyways.

No that's not a challenge, unless you want it to be one.

THANK YOU!!!!

*further avatar adjustments get done after reading update*

I love it how this place keeps undergoing a slight improvement every time that I mention something. :)
Must be karma.

64x64? oh god

Yes, because some masterpieces are just far too detailed to be fairly comprehended and/or criticized at any other resolution smaller than that.
In fact, 64*64 is still not the optimal alternative, but it's better nonetheless, and we should be thankful for that.

P.S.: Those fishies are cooking so nicely. I love the smell coming from that stove.

My question is how exactly do you make it transparent with this forum?

Use the alpha channel. That should be all you need.

Most image editors (that are at least better than ms-paint) should let you select the background with the magic wand or similar tool and delete it, or you can always just draw on a transparent canvas (though if you use photoshop, you'll probably have to convert the background layer into a "normal" layer first -- at least this is what I experience with the stripped down elements version)

Hmm...could I request a red fish with the head/face of a doom shotgun shell?


How's this?



I've been screwing around in GIMP most of today so that's the only reason I'm even attempting this stuff :P

Does it need to be a FISH? Why FISH?????
I'd rather want to see an avatar of Sailor Jupiter cooking some dinner in my kitchen, and the fact is that I already have this image drawn for me by a professional artist from DeviantArt.
The only problem is that I'm not allowed to set it as my avatar on here.
Hmph.

Oh, I see. I was thinking that it was because you guys all loved Tom Hall, the great "Pope of The Church of Dopey Fish". :/
But either way, I still don't want any fish unless it's being cooked inside Makochan's pot in my kitchen.

I was going to say "please tell me this is a joke" but then I looked at your new avatar.

....

Please tell me this is a joke.

An early Christmas present, thanks. :)

Think I'll leave my current avatar as-is and work on a new one.

@TDA: Thanks! Some edits later, and suddenly I've been assimilated. O:

Still facing to the left, though, for maximum obliviousness.

looks like IntangirFish might be able to benefit from this new development.

I'll have to take a crack at it, then.

I never joke about such important business!
Three years ago I made a request to a talented artist to portray Sailor Jupiter and myself as a couple cooking dinner in the kitchen.
It's the REAL deal.
In fact, the original full-size drawing was so good that it earned the artist several new followers/subscribers. Oh yes. Plenty of fish!
