Can you do a medic one?
FP is a real bitch about AA.

This looks shopped ...

[QUOTE=frontman001;16151031]Sorry, but yours blows. [editline]11:18PM[/editline] Plus I made mine a while back. Before this thread was made as well.[/QUOTE] Hey hey, I wasn't trying to be critical or hostile. :( I had never seen yours before and I was only pointing out something you might want to fix...and I also wasn't trying to claim credit or anything; I posted my own version and right then noticed your avatar. It's a coincidence, that's all. Mine is terrible (all of them are :v:), yeah, but to be honest yours could use a few noticeable fix-ups as well; I noticed that you opted to replace the Engineer's entire helmet rather than just the Miner's Light, and in doing so you made the left side's headband clip over his ear. This, as far as I can tell, was actually caused by the helmet being tipped back a tad too far; it's not the same angle that the original's helmet is. And, if you really want to compare yours to mine, then I'd also like to point out that the lighting on both of them is exactly the same, so you probably got yours from Model Viewer too. Don't call me out as an imperfect copycat when your own version isn't perfect either. Also, LycanN, about the Medic...I've tried and I've tried, but frankly Model Viewer is incapable of displaying the right angle at the right size to make it happen right. I could do an aliased version like all the older avatars, but I'd like that to be a last resort... If anybody can give me some tips and tricks for Model Viewer, that'd be great. Remember that the aliased avatars look fine when actually applied to Steam profiles and Facepunch profiles, so if you don't mind me making it that way, I'll go ahead with it.
I took your Spy Fedora and Demo Fro and used photoshop to edit them and touch up some places. Spy Fedora : [IMG]http://filebox.me/files/83w6kf0bp_spyhatavatar2.jpg[/IMG] Demo Fro : [IMG]http://filebox.me/files/3vt5fa14k_natedemofro.jpg[/IMG] Thanks for the avatars to start with and the Scouts a great improvement, keep it up. Hope to see the Medic. [b]Edit:[/b] Wow Facepunch must really pixelate your images when uploaded to be avatars. It blurred the hell out of my spy avatar. In steam profiles it looks fine, and when in friends list in steam. It looks alot better on steam than Facepunch.

Cheap edit I know[/QUOTE] It looks like you blurred the whole thing. Honestly, blurring is not the way to go for anti-aliasing. I found this out myself trying to do the same thing for Shugo. I carefully selected only the edges so I could try and blur them enough to make it look anti-aliased, but crisp enough to get a line. This didn't work.
Yeah I know, it only really works for 2D images, not 3D at angles
Blurring only works as that: a blur. It doesn't work as a means to easily anti-alias something. 2D or 3D.

Your heavy is better
[quote=doommarine23;16151931]your heavy is better[/quote] THANKS :D HEART FOR YOU! [b]Edit[/b] WHY WONT FUCKING CAPS WORK! [B]EDIT[/B] THERE!
Well, I've decided to stay up late and continue upgrading the avatars, and I'm sorry to say that Model Viewer's ruined the Spy and Medic; it simply won't let me view them at the right angles and at the right sizes. Irishman23's touch-up is your best bet for the Fancy Fedora Spy if you need it at that size. Remember, the aliased avatars still look good when actually applied to profiles. I can easily upgrade the Heavy and Sniper, so I think I'll do those and then get to work on an aliased Medic, which will bring my personal work on this to a close. If anybody wants to continue to modify these, be my guest. I'll put the best ones into the OP. :)

[QUOTE=Irishman23;16151982]If you posted an aliased Medic.

Dunno if I want to stay up much longer (I have class tomorrow), but I'll try to pop off the Sniper upgrade. I think I'll save Medic for tomorrow.

Do it tomorrow when you have more time. Thanks again for the originals.
Alright, the new Sniper's up. With that, I'm done for the night. Thanks for all the help and comments, guys. :)
Awesome avatars, love the engie! :D
Oh wow the first thing I noticed was the scout having 2 hats on his head.:c00l:
Oh my...oh my GOD! I JUST NOW FINALLY GOT A HAT. Batter's Helmet! Tonight feels so great! Guess I'll have to change my avatar now. GOOD THING I MADE THOSE HAT AVATARS, HUH!? :v:
Hey Shugo, if you are interested, I do have a BLU version of the avatars I made. If you want to add the BLU Team hats you can give them a go. [media]http://filesmelt.com/Imagehosting/pics/2b87a9e2b75daa08de79bcbd56e2cbe8.jpg[/media]
