Stay A MysterySUB-TEXT:
Winter & Tink (preferably make it small)IMAGES:
For Christina: Gallery
. Pick whichever works the easiest for you.
(If the images aren't up to scratch, let me know and I'll hunt some more down)OTHER SITE WHERE REQUEST IS POSTED:
Right! So basically the setting of the piece is in a modern city, in an upscale apartment building. You don't necessarily HAVE to exactly reflect the setting by making the background an apartment building; not at all. The only theme I could suggest would be a somewhat smoky feel? Basically, I would love to see the use of...I don't know...curtains. Beyond that, the pictures reflect the relationship of the two characters, which is sort of a rivalry mixed with a high level of distrust.
Colors are totally up to you, though I would love to see the red of Christina's hair be flourished and the blue of Eva's eyes likewise.
I'm so sorry if that is TOTALLY vague! If you need me to go into more indepth detail, just ask. So, in summary, we are going for a modern look; an apartment would be preferable. Like, throw in a white leather couch as it does have significant meaning to the plot. If you can't work that in, then try a smoky sort of theme; possibly throwing in some curtains. If NEITHER or those work, then do whatever the heck you want; surprise me xD.Just nothing too flowery, haha.
Any hassles, reply back and I'll get on it as soon as possible! Thanks so much!

This will get done, hopefully, today at some point amongst stuff. ^^
Nothing too flowery, cracked me up. xD
I'll get as close to what you want as I can. :D

I aim to entertain xD.
Thanks so much, you are the freaking best!

So I have the background done, I just have to put the lovely ladies in and do the finishing touches. Problem is, I'm falling asleep and when I nap it usually turns into an all nighter. >.<
But I did have one question before I finished, did you want a light or dark banner?
I can achieve the smoky, curtain feel either way, just thought I'd ask what you would prefer. :D
wintervention - June 13, 2011 02:37 AM (GMT)
*Prepares totally vague and non-helpful answer* Whichever you think looks better.
Honestly? I would say that a lighter banner would probably suit the setting a bit better. If it doesn't work, then do the dark one.
Can't wait to see it!

So I made two versions of the banner that I have now, but the image quality of Christina's photoshoot is a little fuzzy so she sort of stands out against the higher quality image of Eva and the background. I also tried to get the couch in there, but every time I did I felt like it made the banner a little off so I went for smoky/modern instead.
Anywho, I hope you like it Lucas and if there is anything you want me to change or alter or if you want me to redo it entirely just let me know and I'll get to it. ^^

I totally feel bad saying this, but I don't know if I like it. I'm majorly sorry to be a prat like that and be all "NEINE, IST NOT GUUD ENOUFF" but .. yeah, it's not connecting with me, you know?
That's partly my bad for not having a decent idea going into the description, but also for supplying HORRENDOUSLY bad images. So! I went hunting again and found some better ones. For Christina, I found this
. It's much better quality than the photoshoot I originally linked, plus I think she looks stunning there; hah!
As for Eva, it's such a bloody difficulty finding decent images as all of her good photos are magazine scans. Her fan-website has about 5 photoshoots and a bazillion magazine scans. Having used images of hers before in graphics, the 'blur' of the scans can generally be fixed up, but I did try and find better quality images. Une
(pick whichever you like the most)DeuxTrois
In regards to the actual image, I reckon we kill off the 'smoky' feel and instead go for a nightlife-city feel; bright lights amongst a dark background. For some reason, I just get the feeling that it works, hah! Of course, if you have any ideas yourself and you're dying to implement them, then be my guest. I'm sure that it will, in the words of the Jonas Brothers, be much better.
I'm majorly sorry again to be a picky prat, but it's totally my personality. xD
(And no, I'm not German or French. I'm Australian. xD)
lolacoca - June 14, 2011 02:15 AM (GMT)
No, it's completely okay, I totally understand. ^^
And the better quality images help me a lot (the flow will be much better) so I'll get to making a dark version as soon as I can!
wintervention - June 14, 2011 03:29 AM (GMT)
Great! Looking forward to version 2.0.
lolacoca - June 18, 2011 06:54 PM (GMT)
I am getting to this over the weekend. The semester just ended for me so I finally have a break so woot! Expect it soon. <3
wintervention - June 19, 2011 12:15 AM (GMT)
No stress at all! I remembered you saying you had finals, so I totally understood. Congrats on finishing!
lolacoca - June 21, 2011 05:11 AM (GMT)
Okay so, I wanted to show you what I have made.
The muse has been hard for me to find lately, I don't know why.
I think it's the fact that I finished finals and my body is in shut down mode still. xD
Um, so here is what I have and I hope you like it.
I also went and grabbed a different picture of Christina because it flowed better.
I figure that there are probably going to be changes?
I tried to get dark and bright lights the way I interpreted it.
If I succeeded or not is up to you. ^^
Let me know if I need to try again!
wintervention - June 21, 2011 08:18 AM (GMT)
That works so much better! And don't worry about the new image for Christina, I think you picked a really good one. I love the font you used for 'stay a mystery' and the colour scheme works perfectly.
You're the best, did I ever tell you that? Hah! <3
lolacoca - June 23, 2011 03:44 AM (GMT)
Oh my gosh, I'm glad you like it! I wasn't sure about it at first, but yay! -celebrates- <3
