Talked to GS about the profile and he said it likes it a lot. I'll start on FunnyGurl when I get the time. I'm going to visit my gf's mother today.

Why couldn't you do this when I HAD the credits D:!!!

At least I didn't gamble the credits but still, I only have 1000 at the moment from donating to every tournament thus far

Damn it I really wanted a new profile lmao

It was very poor timing. I didn't have more than 10k right around when you asked for a profile the first time. Luckily Zyphoror let me have his credits since he quit playing FFR. I bought all the songs, and it ended up being about 150k for all of the songs. So I was still broke...(roughly about 45k credits). I opened the shop to get my credit amount boosted.

I know you've been asking me a couple of times..and I'm sorry I didn't get to the task. I can put your name in the thread and work on one if you still want one. I'm sure we could work something out.

As much as I would love to take your offer, I would be much happier knowing I have compensation for your time and work. I can contact you when I have said compensation but keep up the good work man!

So damn true, I really wish I had the skills and programs to be decent enough to do my own and maybe others but it's still good that there is a handful of players who have this skill and are willing to share their work

just sayin there should be more people cashing in on their profile making abilities

I can make basic basic stuff but I will never be able to make stuff like Mahou, not even on an equivalence spectrum.

a lot of people on this website outclass me when it comes to photoshop abilities, it's just whether or not they want to make themselves known.

I know what you mean.
I also usually don't mention Photoshop unless I have a shortage of credits from gambling hall or if I decide to return back to FFR.

Edit: OP has been updated.

I'm more than capable of using my graphic design and typography/typesetting skill sets for profile making, I just don't give enough of a shit to bother doing them and I would find it boring and fairly pointless overall.

Why design for worthless virtual currency when I could be making real money and have my work and name being put out there, in addition to having solid professional portfolio pieces to use? I also subconsciously think that applying whatever knowledge and skill sets of Adobe Creative Suite I've learned from college goes to waste on abysmal things like FFR profiles, but that's just me as a professional graphic designer for a living. Obviously not a representation of what's correct or wrong—to each their own, do whatever you want.

Quote:
Time: 8 hours
Other random information: Over 500 layers in PS.
If I may comment on this though (not to be taken in an offensive manner), this just seems terribly inefficient to me if it honestly took you 8 hours TBH, but I can understand you wanting to spend time with your "customer." But you should keep in mind that there is such a thing as spending too much time, which ultimately backlogs you from handling other tasks/jobs and losses on your end in terms of time (and money if applicable).

It's a nice trait to be a perfectionist, but don't let that overwhelm your overall efficiency with these kinds of things. Imagine if you were being paid real money from a client to do this and you only had a maximum allotted time of 2 hours to design it because that was their budget—anymore time spent on this is ultimately YOUR loss as a designer in both time and money. Time is money in the design business essentially.

Also more layers =/= better quality, that just makes your file a nightmare to browse through even if you do use a folder hierarchy for organization, rofl. I think the perfect phrase for this situation would be, "less is more."

I don't personally see myself getting into that type of profession, but I do like to spend time with Photoshop when I start feeling creative or need credits. If anything, I think Photoshop is more of a hobby to me rather than some sort of profession. My popularity with PS stays within the realm of FFR. I guess it's like that since I didn't learn Photoshop until I returned to FFR (back in 2011ish or 2012). Also, most of the things I've learned about the program catered to creating FFR profiles. I am capable of creating other things (i.e. logos, graphics) but FFR is essentially where I picked up the skill. I'm not the best with Photoshop (and I'm sure you know a lot more about creating than I do), but I do like to share some of the tools that I took some time to learn on my own. I'm really not into it for the money or could care less if my name gets popular.

Also, I do understand that more layers + more time =/= a great product. I've made tons of things....and the first graphics I produced took a long time for me to make. I look back at them right now, and I say, "Oh, I could have probably done this much better." Right now, I could probably spend way less time I did before and still create something that looks decent (imo); however, I believe that there are other factors in why I would put more time into a certain product than others. (especially if I feel like I have a solid idea/something good that's going on). I like your advice a lot, and if you ever do get bored, I'd love to see some of your work. No offense was taken.
