[VS] Youtube channel playlist/graphics/etc
Thank you to everybody that helped get us rolling with this project. The channel is now rolling, with lots of subscribers and videos to go with them!
Im always looking for more input and contributors though, so let me know if you have any ideas!
Resolved (See below post)
Video makers wanted:
Im interested in finding out if there is anybody who would be interested in making videos to document our strategic nights. Im thinking along the lines of 10-20 minute videos where key strategic or funny moments from the night were compiled together to create something remeniscent in style to the videos of CHKilroys arma/dayz videos:
Similarly with dslyecxi:
If we could get somebody who is competent in video capture and editing to create something like this, that would be great. We have a lot of awesome coverage of the silly events, which is great, but we could also do with a few videos to showcase our more competetive side.
I figured that snapshot style videos would be a lot less boring to a viewer than hours of footage.. People will see the fun side of our tactical nights!
If anybody is interested in taking on the task, please let me know.
<3 love you all.

Dunno if I'm proficient enough in graphicsy photoshopping to make the background, but if ideas is what you are after, a fairly simple graphic incorporating the Rock Paper Shotgun logo (so it's recognisable), perhaps bastardised to read 'Rock Planet Shotgun' and I guess some atmospheric in-game imagery could be good. Empty landscape, or artsy detail is probably best, so as not to distract too badly from the videos. Giraffe camo = bonus. Some of the bright coloured smoke/plasma in past videos looked really good, perhaps try that in background image (might be too distracting tho)? Have the image running off to either side at the top, blending into a block colour (black?) background below and to the far sides to keep it elegant and low file size.
Fairly boring suggestions, but appropriate to the purpose and not too invasive/silly (it's just the backdrop, let the silliness in the videos shine out). Slick and tasteful would be what makes it look good, using a perspective in the game that people have not seen before would make it interesting/memorable (like a well-framed landscape shot, or well composed close-up image of some detail).
edit: Perhaps black and white/limited colour, to emphasize the auteurness of our sophisticated laser cowboy shorts?

I've always thought something like this would be good for a logo/decal (I'm pretty terrible at this kind of thing, but you get the idea):
Don't know if that's too Giraffe-centric, are the other RPS groups getting in on this as well?

That's pretty neat.
Yes, I know I draw like a five year old child. I didn't really ever get beyond that. Basically though, the Vanu trinity of the logo but with rock, planet, shotgun instead. Perhaps too complex and such.
If anyone think the idea - the idea, not the drawing (lol) - is good I can pitch it to CH1LL1E (a member of RPS and friend) that can actually draw.

If I were to design it myself, I would probably go for a double border design at the sides, perhaps with the logo at top.
It would be similar to the bf3 promo images, where you have tanks rolling, soldiers and planes... In fact, something similar to the Planetside loading screen image with the three people, but JUST vanu, and perhaps in black and white.
So on the left, the tanks, planets etc fly slightly left, and on the right, slightly right... if you get what I mean here...
Im not going to do it, but I thought something like that could be cool. Either using screenshots, or hand drawn artwork, or even a combination of the two, making screenshots stylised.

When I started this I thought I was pretty decent with photoshop. Now I've finished I feel I should probably think twice before even using paint. I think the idea is put across at least;
To be honest I doubt I'll ever top the first time I combined photoshop with planetside, maybe I could just whack an RPS logo on this?

I second that second one.

Probably the funniest thing I have ever seen, especially within the context in which it was created

My inspiration for the first one, I'd love to do something as minimalist as this;

really like the scyth going over the moon that would make a great logo

Me, nick, jag and mitch have been discussing this, especially jaguars last suggestion, and I think we should really focus on the simple design of this.
Similar designs that use a 3 colour system (possibly the same colours as above) would be really nice, so if possible could people produce some designs along these lines.

Like my proposed trinity then. Chuck it in three colors and you have it right there. Rock Planet Shotgun! Love that poster btw, been looking for a wallpaper version of it.

I liked Rizlars idea of riffing on the existing RPS logo, here's another stab at it;

Wow! We clearly have some real talent here! I like everything I'm seeing here, but if I were to pick one favourite, then I'd go with the Scythe-in-the-moon image. Although this last one is pretty too.
03-03-2013, 09:43 AM #18
How about a giraffe silhouette imposed on a planet (auraxis) then? Think of the Scythemoonthing. Like jaguars text quite a bit, we should use that somewhere. For logo purposes it would be better if everything except the text was cropped away.

If you're going for the cracked mud, I made a tiling texture of that that never really got used for work so I could dig it out if it'd be helpful as I can see the mirror in the middle there :3
Or if people wanted other textures for similar things I can provide.
