Just to let you guys know I am, over the coming week, going to begin work on Underbanners for specific Space Marine and Chaos Space Marine underbanners. As i complete them i will edit this first post so that you don't have to go crawling through all of the others to find the banners.
At the moment i am working on the First Founding legions and they should (hopefully) be done by the end of this week.
After that if you wish for me to do a specific legion i will need a picture of at least 1 marine (on white background) and a close up picture of their shoulder pad. I will then work as fast as i can to make it into an underbanner.
With his permissions these are going to follow the general style of Legionaires like his salamanders underbanner however i will include the chapter symbol in the banner. They will also be the same size as his so that you can use them in an animated underbanner.
anyway, back to making them,
I fail to see what you mean with underbanners.
You mean some sort of decals? or the banners that space marines carry on a pole on their backpack, or even something else?
I'm quite willing to make some too; hey, us three could become a lil group of artists.
I made the ones in my sig myself (and animated them), but I did the scanline technique rather than the 3D lighter bit (forgot what it's called)(because I cant do it :rolleyes.
I hope to update my underbars soon as they were just quickies, so they are pretty crap. Especially the Eldar one and the Warhammer 40k one; can anyone advise how to improve it? My problem is you cant get anything to fit into something so wide but short.
woot, Iron Hands Representin!
For the underbanners i was thinking that we would have a marine in their chapters colour with just head and torso showing maybe some arms, the marine would be slightly ofset to the left of the centre. On the right of the marine would be a picture of his shoulder pad bearing the chapter logo. As the background it will be a slightly darker shade of their chapter armour, and im thinking if we can find them have something relating to the chapter, so for the ultramarines if we can find a picture of marines fighting we can then turn it dark blue and set it in the back, and then we will have text on the right hand side.
~Parasite the only thing i dont like about your underbanners is the black lines going across them, otherwise they are cool
And yeah, those are the scanlines. IMO they look OK sometimes (ie on the Car Enthusiast one - without them the Bugatti showed out too much), but I agree, most of them dont loko great. Another reason to re-do them.
I still want to know how to do the 3D light thing on the top of the bar; I'll look for some tutorials.
And how would you recommend fitting things in and filling up spare space? If I shrink an Eldar's head to fit, I would need to have about 50 to fill it up. OK, there is writing and stuff, but they still look bare.
One last thing; my underbars are 350x19, whereas Legionnaires are 300x20. Legionnaires are easiest to make, although the standard for most underbars is 350x19 (and, IMO, they look better in forums ).
Anyway, good luck.
Im not going to be using any of these pics as i dont have a marine army so therefore you can discard what im about to say.
your idea of having the head/torso showing and the shoulder pad is great, but having the marines fighting in the background as well may look a little crowded or confusing. Remember, you have a very small amount of space and overcrowding could ruin a good picture. Less is definatly more in this case.
If your really set on haveing a diorama type background, perhaps just having the shoulderpad in the foreground would look more effective.
As i said, this is just my 2 cents and I look forward to seeing what you come up with!
I get what you are saying, i wasn't planing on it being a particularly busy background, it will be coloured almost completely to whatever colour. So it wont be busy, it will be like having a coloured background just with a vague pattern to it. This should keep it from being over complicated.
Gazboy, are these coming out anytime soon?
not sounding grumpy, but itts been anout a week. How long do these underbanners take anyway???
