Thumbnails for Replays


Recommended Posts

Hey, is anyone good with photoshop or other graphic designs? I'm looking for a way to do thumbnails, because I think the lack of them really hurts the channels (or, it will when we try to get new people interested)

 

So can anyone get some kind of images that I could use to signify different players? I suppose t1 units would be the best (archers, perhaps, so SS, MA, WW, and forsaken?), although the best-case scenario would be to get images of all the common PvP units, so I could put something that represents the players (like a vileblood if that was special during the match, or nox troopers if a game was won by spamming them, etc).

 

So can anyone help me? Here is a thumbnail creator for Super Smash Bros, to give you an idea of what I need....

How many is reasonable?

Idk, depends on the quality you want them to be, if it's just "recognisable" then that's easiy, if you want them to be detailed and not pixelated and such it takes a bit longer. Give me a couple to start with and I'll do them whenever I can :)

Thumbnails are relatively small. Will a not pixelated version be very much different to a pixelated one that you can really see the difference? The same with the details.

Liek everyone ignored my message above..... #FeelsBadMan :'(

If I cast a replay of you and someone makes a watermelon, yeah, I'll put it in the thumbnail.

@Lukaznid

Could you start with scavenger, dreadcharger, master archers, sunstriders, windweavers, dryad, forsaken, war eagle, juggernaut, harvester, Lost grigori, burrower, and brannoc? Those are probably the most iconic PvP units.

Thanks!

Sure, btw what size would you need them to be?

Well, the thumbnails would be 1920 x 1080, so however size you think would balance well. :)

I'm also taking suggestions on the thumbnails. I'm thinking a simple BFR logo in the middle, with some kind of line and the names of the players and their unit of choice :). Any other suggestions?

I really like MVG's thumbnails for SSB4 https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC_dkX2_MJZeiYZImFN8AOvg/videos

Ok they're not that difficult to make, just be aware that BF art isn't that big pixel wise. It was meant for cards so :P I mean the scavenger is 500x500 or something

Now that you mention that, I never noticed that too :P 

@Lukaznid By the way, is it just me or does his right claw not have a proper red glow ?

I think the light source is on the left, so the left glows more than the right (because that is the shadow side)... it looks like that, don't know if that was intended

Pretty much what silencekiller said. The artwork has context so the lighting is odd when you cut out the thingy.

Anyway I think this really only goes for fire, maybe nature units, but probably not shadow or frost. Definitely not frost. I tried it and it looked just really bad.

What about these ones ? i took your one and edit it, hope your fine with that.
Guess that would work for thumbnails, got two ones here, as one is easier for the eyes (which might become handy for thumbnails), where the other one is straight up rendered on higher resolution.
What do you think about that?

I don't mind :) The first one looks nice.
Btw which filter did you use if any?
