Embala's Avatars and Banners

ElfTanner

Embala I love your work. Can you make me a Stronbow and Moonshade banner? I am jelouse of the one you made for Siwan Wink

Embala

Thanks so much, ElfTanner *blushes*



I'm always willing to fulfill your request Happy - you cannot imagine how much I owe you considering my "art".



Only hope I can satisfy your expectations - you already have such an awesome banner by yourself.

Rjjspesh

I like the 'Choice' one in box four. Cool eyes.

Embala

Thanks, Rjjspesh Happy Feel free to use it Wink

Willowspring

:D i love my timmain one still

RedheadEmber

Hey! Those are cool! Think you could make an [b:238353e1e8]Ember through the years[/b:238353e1e8] banner?

Embala

Ember "through the years" ... you mean from toddler til Chieftess?

Why not? - sounds interesting! But be aware - your request is a the end of a rather long row.



Added some new ones - done by request of Siwan - and mostly reserved for her ;)



Many thanks to Foxeye for the permission to use her colorings and original art of Crescent !
















- oversized, mainly for playing with varieties.


Opinions to the frames welcome.

RedheadEmber

That's [i:bfd85ac673]excactly[/i:bfd85ac673] what I mean! And don't worry! I can wait! :D

Embala

You were warned Grin

Any special pics you would love to see used? I'm open for suggestions - just pm me.

Willowspring

*pokes embala* can i request one???

Embala

I cannot say NO to you Smile

But ... as I told Redhead - it's the end of a rather long row. If inspiration will not bite me one of a sudden it will take it's time. So ... when you will be patient - what would you like to see?

Willowspring

Anything Ember and Teir????

*huggles you tightly*

Embala

That will be a challenging task, Willowspring - you already have such a wonderful one made by ElfTanner! Creating something different and as beautiful ...



One more banner requested by Siwan



Many thanks to Foxeye for the permission to use her colorings and original art of Crescent!



Now I'll think about yours, ElfTanner :D

ElfTanner

YAY! :clap:

Embala

Feedback welcome! Which way do they look better?



This way

... or this

Icemoon

they all are awfully awesome !!!

Tenderfoot

(Psst! Icemoon! Awful = not good/affreux)

I guess you meant "I'm in awe", right? And I second you!

Embala

Don't worry Hug - I've understood it this way Wink



And many thanks to both of you!

Icemoon

oooooooooooooops :oops:

sorry soorry sorryyyyyyyyyyy !!!!

:oops: :oops: :oops: :oops:
:roll: :roll:



thanks tenderfoot and sorry again embala !!!iLOVE YOUR COLLAGES !!!
they are not awfull !!!!!!!
but spendid magnificient merveilleux .....

Embala

It's okay, cubling :-* ... I've understood what you meant, not what you wrote ;)

Icemoon

ooouf ...
I 'm rassured ^^

to answer to your question I personnaly prefer the "first way"

Embala

Couldn't resist to try this for a banner





Many thanks to Foxeye for the permission to use her original art of Crescent!

ElfTanner

For a banner, I think you shoul mae Chitter the daughter moon, considering they live in the now, and Chitter is the now. Just a tought though. I like it either way. :D

Embala

Something I'll have to think about, ElfTanner. Until your proposal I havn't seen this happening in EQ present time, but

- either somewhen in the past - lonesome Strongbow thinking of his two Moons (maybe during Shards)

- or in an unknown future - influenced by some fan-rumors about Moonshade's coming death - Strongbow mourning



The suggested change would make this one much more cheerful - and different from the avatar in any case!

faeriegirl

dunno where I could best post this, but I would be very very happy if somebody felt like making me a nice banner... Just an easy one, I was thinking about the panel with Leetah, Suntop and Strongbow sending to Rayek in SaBM. It's on this page:
http://www.elfquest.com/gallery/OnlineComics/SABM/SABM05/DisplaySABM05.html?page=23
I hope that resizing this panel is easy to do?
Maybe I could do it myself, but I don't know how... and should I upload it somewhere (then where?) to use it?
Thanks anyway ^^

Embala

Thanks for asking me, faeriegirl Happy



Your request was as specific as easy to do - made it at once. That's what you have in mind?



WiseShaman

[b:dc558297b0]faeriegirl[/b:dc558297b0]

You can use any photo storing site like photobucket to put the photo in. Then just go to your Profile and under the signature add the link.

PM me if you need step by step instructions...

Couldn't leave Crescent out ;)



Icemoon

embala !!!
you made such a great work !!!!!!!!!!
I love it !!!!

crescent looks like to say :
"hey ! wait me !"

and I love the two contraries : the serious moonshade with the happy chitter !
so reall !!!

and the clearbrook avatar is magnificient !

Icemoon

and I have an idea for a banner :
why not a "howlingones" banner ?

Tenderfoot

Hey, what about a banner with look-alike Bearclaw and Ember? Both of them said 'boo' to someone and scared them off! That would've been [i:2c0a674d7f]so[/i:2c0a674d7f] funny! With Bearclaw on the left and Ember on the right, scaring their 'friends' to the middle of the banner! Grin

ROFL! I can totally see that! Would be so much fun!

Embala

Sounds like fun Grin Must look for these two ... know Ember's well, but no idea about Bearclaw's right now. Scared a human? ... or a Troll?

Tenderfoot

Oh, it's in wolfrider. When he and Strongbow hunted for bear, the humans arrived and took their meat. They wanted revenge, so they played tricks on them. It's on page 27;

http://www.elfquest.com/gallery/OnlineComics/WR/DisplayWR.html?page=27

There ya go!

Icemoon

that will be sooooo funny !

Embala

A new avatar collage - One-Eye in the Deadwood

New banners by Willowspring's request











I know there are other requests before her ... simply cannot work "in a row" - must wait til inspiration bites

... and this Sabertooth was inspiring Wink

Willowspring

*huggles close* thank you again Embala!!!

joyleaf1

wow I love what you did with your avatars :D :D :D they are realy cool!!! if I may make a request...if you so shall choose I would love a banner with Nightfall,leetah,Clearbrook,Moonshade,dewshine,tyleet in it. a kindof "wemon of elfquest"

Icemoon

[quote:465ba645fa="Icemoon"]and I have an idea for a banner :

you can put the character who are good looking in howling Wink



thankiiiies !!
:banana:

bukittyan

Awesome banner work and collage work, Embala! I don't know how you manage to put such different pieces together and make them fit so perfectly. :D

Embala

Thank you for this kind words, bukittyan *blushes*



How I manage putting it together? - thanks to the assistance of my friendly little program Wink

How I make them fit so perfectly? - starting to believe that I really have an eye for it Grin



Just skimmed through my former tries and actually found something that could work well as a banner ...

... another take on Healer's Hands



Willowspring

O.O *shudders* beautiful.... yet creepy at the same time

Icemoon

wonderful !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
this isa as awesome as the complete collage !
superb work !

Embala

Now - it's a rather creepy theme! And all those bodyless hands ... creeping snakelike throught the picture ... *shudders* can fully understand you Grin



Thank you, Icemoon Hug



Joyleaf! How could I overlook your post :oops: Very happy you like my avis! Your request really gave me an idea :D ... now I must look where to find enough stuff to make it work *crossing fingers* - but ... I've to do at least one or two other before.



Have already mentioned being a slow worker, havn't I? :oops:

Icemoon

but you're welcome my dear !!!!!

Embala

Some random ideas from my "Cards" series ...

Icemoon's request for Ember Goddess caused me making a pair of Fire Heads - and then ...







Willowspring

LOVE THEM

ElfTanner

Embala, I know you've been waiting for inspiration to do my Moonshade banner so I have an idea. Acctually it's more of a request, maybe. How about a TEAM Moonshade site banner? You can use images of Moonshade that depict the word TEAM in the name.

T - Tanner
E - Elder
A - Artistic
M - Mother

All I ask is that the name of the site be on the banner and maybe on the bottom some where the site address.

You don't have to, I was just thinking about making a banner last night and the fact that you hadn't made the Moonshade one for me yet because you hadn't had inspiration... I kind of put two and two together. Anyway, It's up to you if you want to do that. If not I am making one too. :D

Embala

First ... thank you for your patience, ElfTanner :oops:
Second ... I'll have some moore free time soon :D
Third ... your new request is interesting - challenging!
Hopefully more leisure time will bring inspiration back. In the meanwhile there's time to think about T.E.A.M. - Elder, Tanner, Mother is clear ... Artist refers to her costume designs, right?

bukittyan

I love the Healer's Hands banner. It's very reflective of the song, and all the things that healers can do.

ElfTanner

Yes, she always seems to know how to dress them even without asking them what they want. I first thought of the image of her putting on Aroree's outfit in the full panel of Kings of the Broken Wheel.

[img:8f72984706]http://www.elfquest.com/gallery/OnlineComics/KOBW/KOBW07/kobw07-20.jpg[/img:8f72984706]

I always thought that one was so pretty. Plus, the descriptive term artistic was in her bio by Wendi and Richard Pini, so I thought I would add it to the TEAM on the site name.

Icemoon

would love to see what embala'll done with this request !
surely somthing awesome, as always !


and the new banners are aaaaaaaaaaaaabsolutly maginficient !!!!!!

the gods of fire are ... impressives ! Surprised


oh... and I remarked that you use my drawing of embala as your avi... :oops:

I'm honoured !

Embala

For ElfTanner's first request











ElfTanner

Those are very nice Embala. :D I can't decide which one I like most...

Icemoon

woaw ! Surprised

beautifuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuul work !!!!

Embala

Quote:

Glad you like ... hope it's worth the long wait ... at least a bit *oops*

Does this mean all are reserved to you? There's no need to choose ... they clearly are too similar to offer them otherwise.

Or ... tell me which one you like less - that's easier sometimes than to pick the favorite Wink



... I'll probably redo the third ... and make him unique ... in case this is your "last prefered one"



Your request for T.E.A.M still counts ... thinking about this one now.





You are a darling, Icemoon Happy ... and of course I'm using your drawing with pride and joy ... among other gifts!

ElfTanner

actually I think the top one i my least fav. I'm leaning toward the middle one, but I like the middle one and bottom one. Can I have those two?

Embala

Of course you can have both! Happy



I like the first one because of the "color scheme" the small portraits allow - but they clearly are far from being the best ...



When I consider colors and picture quality the second is the winner Wink



... on the other hand the last one allows an insight on their close relationship - tho I'm still tempted to play with this one ... sometimes perhaps.

bukittyan

I like how you showed different aspects of Moonshade and Strongbow in all three of your banners. The first one is their magic, the second is their deep love for each other, and the third is how protective they are of their family. Very nicely done! :D

faeriegirl

my personal favourite would still be the middle one. If ElfTanner wouldn't want it, I would! ;) They're all lovely...

Kyri2015

Hey Embala! Can you make a banner with Pike and Skot for me please????????? With a dreamberry on top?

Embala

Wow ... bukittyan, you always find words and declarations for what is sort of "blind instinkt" on my side Surprised Thank you!



Thanks, faeriegirl Smile



Dreamberry would be fun ... let's see how fast I am Wink



Normally there are some others in row before ...

An avatar for Rjjspesh from her original art ... cleared and altered a bit Wink



and

Rjjspesh

A bit?! [b:08899ce562]Understatement[/b:08899ce562]- it's a whole new picture :heart:

Kyri2015

Actually, Embala, Midnightmoon is goona use the banner.....is that okay??

Embala

Let's say you inspired it - and if you don't reclaim it Midnightmoon can use it

... if I succeed in making it finally Wink

Kyri2015

Thanks, Embala!!


I forgot that I asked you first...but I'm just gonna let Midnightmoon have it......

Say, [b:5d450ee02f]Embala[/b:5d450ee02f], do you make banners for people?

Embala

I have ... and I will do ... and I would wish to do more. But I must admit that it is right now a lottery whether you will get your request in reasonable time.



True is - I have a list to do already - also true is that I'm not working "in row" but when and where inspiration strikes.



If you still dare Wink to ask - you are welcome Happy

Rjjspesh

I dare ^^

I have a request for a theme, too. Cute boys of EQ?

faeriegirl

[quote:a90e60f5db="Rjjspesh"]I dare ^^

I think Embala needs names for your theme ;) who are the cute boys according to you?

Embala

Grin faeriegirl forestalled my question ... better you are more exact - besides different taste there might be a certain generation gap Wink

Rjjspesh

That's tough! They're all mostly cute, aren't they? I'll sleep on it ^^

Rjjspesh

... and what do you mean generation gap? 0_o

Embala

Grin Just a slightly different POV on "cute boys" in special ... and I cannot ask my daughter cause I've never considered to reproduce Wink



*being old enough to be your mother ... judged according to your self-elf portrait ...*





added Willowspring's new avatar:

WolfMoonSky

wow Embala i love your banners they're great :D

Embala

Thank you, WolfMoonSky Happy - glad you like them. Perhaps you like one more than others?



Two new avis - because the "Lovers" were so well accepted



WolfMoonSky

I like the *coming storm* the best!! but i like them all :D

Rjjspesh

Would I still be able to get a cute boys Banner? I've been thinking about it... :D

Embala

Sooner or later ... maybe sooner (a bit) with a definition of "cute" Wink

faeriegirl

Are you accepting new requests? If so, can I have a Joyleaf/Bearclaw//Strongbow/Moonshade one? (or one of the pairs is fine too ;) prefer J/B then)
:awww:?

Rjjspesh

Hm, cute boys... I have a little list you could pick from?

Cutter, of course, Scouter, Bearclaw sometimes, Strongbow and... hm, there was at least one more I thought... But there is a rough idea -.o

faeriegirl

OK, no prob. Thanks for thinking about it, anyway :)

Rjjspesh

What's a bit creepy? 0_o

Your little list helped - there's a rough idea of doing your long asked "cute" boys, Rjjspesh ... it's your problem when it comes out a bit creepy ... --- ... idea still in process :oops:



I'sorry, faeriegirl Thought about it for two weeks now ... no sudden idea struck. And it is unfair towards you and others with earlier requests to accept more without realistic chance to do it within a proper time.






For Icemoon by request (easy and fast job) - art by Valkerie and Icemoon







... and because I like your mermaid version very much I added the last one.
