Title: Inspiration for making MaSu Signatures
Post by: Chronologix on June 30, 2007, 09:22:26 am
like the ones in the thread in pics n vids, i am going to ask you people to name a song from MaSu and try to give a description of what you think a signature for that song should look like....and i will try and make one to somewhat match how people actually visually interpret these wonderful works of art (i mean the music of course :))

He's making a very bad pun related to musical timing 'signatures'.


As for your offer, it's late and I'm tired so all I can think of is a giant teddy bear staring up proudly into a blazing sun (the hubnester) - Oki Kuma's Adventure of course.

I'm interested in what you could come up with for Hubnester Inferno... someone struggling with inner demons, clutching at his skull sorta thing, unable to accept his incapability of self-control.

if you can find me an image with a person looking how you are thinking, then i can see what i can do.

EDIT: Could not find that kind of image....but i did some experimenting...and got this instead:

I always wanted to see something for Flagcarrier. A beaten and bloody soldier in medieval garb because im just like that, holding a tattered battle flag with fiery hell in the background, but somewhere a beam of light from the heavens 'opening up to embrace'.

Did you draw these yourself?
Title: Re: Inspiration for making MaSu Signatures
Post by: Chronologix on July 02, 2007, 01:30:33 am
they are not "drawn" per say, they are mainly "manipulated" in Photoshop, they are not done completely from scratch...usually they are based around a single render, and the remainder is created in Photoshop.
Title: Re: Inspiration for making MaSu Signatures
Post by: Lysix on July 02, 2007, 01:43:15 am
take the oki kuma one for example. did you actually draw the mountains? or just took a few pictures from external sources and edit them?
either way, theyre still kickass. :)

The rest (lighting, shadows, colors, effects, etc.) were done in Photoshop

(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v470/Chronologix/Sig/flag.jpg)

much excellence!
you seem to make these very quickly and with high quality.
much awe I have in you!

and Dim, I always imagined Flagcarrier with a much more "wintery" feel.
probably because of the lines

I can't feel my legs
but still I keep going
I can't feel my hands
but still I rest knowing
that I won't go alone

I realize that it's also possible that he is injured and feeling is slowly draining from his extremities, but the image of marching
through the snow after a lost battle is much more stable in my mind.

oh, and Chrono, do you think an attempt at Throttle and Mask is possible?
I always imagined the very typical young swordsman leaving the village to follow an epic adventure/ join an army, only to find that that sort of life is much harder than he could have imagined.

I don't know what you might be able to think up, but you're definetly -awesome- at it.
Title: Re: Inspiration for making MaSu Signatures

ok i tried to kinda capture the feeling of a young swordsman leaving the village to embark on a journey kinda thing....kinda...sorta...almost...not really :/

Probably didnt turn anything like you were thinking :/

phoar hawt! :D

i see flagcarrier as being a few different things. when i first started listening to it id 'see' an army mounted on horseback in the distance with a sunset behind them, flags held high.

then i started seeing a lone warrior barely alive and abandoned after an attack

That's actually really awesome.
Very close to what I was thinking, in fact.
At least half of it, at least.  Perhaps if some sort of transition within the picture was added to show the young man when he's older, battle hardened and tired.

edit: Oh, and might I suggest something for all to take part in?
perhaps, if everyone (especially Chrono) is willing, we could debate the meanings of songs and come up with the best image we
can of it, then Chrono can go ahead and make the sig for it.
could be fun ;D

I always felt T&M was more of a motorised song. I more imagine a pilot of some kind of batmobile-ish vehicle driving when I hear that song. When he hears the radio, he puts on his mask, and drives away to do whatever he is supposed to do. The Sid really feels like the intro to some 16-bit combat car game (a la Spy Hunter) to me, so I guess he's going out to kick some ass in his batmobile.

Machinae Supremacy - Dreadnaught lyrics:

So we're finally united here
at the crossroads of our fears
Now the voice of god is everywhere
in our heads and in our ears

Turn the world into an enemy
and believe in me
I will make you see

I will never grant you ground
remember me and why you all bow down
to a metal forge dominion
Silent in a heart of steel
the voice that speaks so any man can feel
You believe in our dominion

Now the terror is the other we
and their unholy deity
It's time to boost the notoriety
of our great society

A Dreadnought from Warhammer 40000:

(http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b330/celestialcrusader/Dreadnought.jpg)

It is a walking tomb for mortally wonded warriors. They are reborn into a Dreadnought to fight forever on.
They fight for the religious Imperium of Man. A human, galaxy spanning empire that tolerates no alien life and belives that the galaxy is the dominion solely of mankind. The people of the Imperium worship the Immortal God Emperor of Mankind. They fight to expand the reach of the empire into dark corners of the galaxy.
There are traitor humans, and they follow the Chaos gods. They terrorise pretty much everyone, being chaotic and everything.

 See any connections that it's possible to make there? I do. I'd have a sig featuring that if I weren't so lazy.

Ja?
I think the only indication of that is the actual song title itself.

Well, technically it's the other way around, but yes.


I now demand a dragoon dreadnought sig.

Why would you need that when Dreadnaughts are way cooler?


Anyway, please continue making awesome sigs, Chrono.

/me reawakens the Dreadnought discussion.

Dreadnought comes from the HMS Dreadnought, built in 1906. The name has previously been used by a number of Her Majesty's Ships, dating back to the 16th century. The name means "dread nothing", but it became a general name for larger battleships, and the image today is usually of something large and threathening.

I sort of wonder if the song is built upon the image of something large and threathening, or from the actual meaning of the word.
