Does anyone know where i can get some art for a custom map i am making? if anyone who reads this can make it please tell me. Im not sure where else to look, i am not very good at making art at all but i need a picture of an ultralisk smashing through a jungle facing the screen and some SCVs standing there lookig at it. it will need a title Survivor-Z with the survivor in white and the Z in red. If anyone can find somewhere i can get ths or if anyone can make it for me i will be happy to give 100% credit for it and their name on the loading screen for the world to see!
Are you talking about have an actual artist or graphic artist create this for you, or taking an in-game screenshot? I'm an artist adept at photoshop and wouldn't mind helping you out and putting some graphics together but I can't give you the 8-10 hours it would take to lay out, draw and render a high-quality, fully custom battle scene
Try sifting through the art library at battle.net and deviant art. If you use someones stuff, ask nicely and Im sure its no problem with the right attribution.
Also: have a look at my loadscreen fader (in my HercMerc project). it can do nice stuff with quite simple graphics.
I recommend trying to do this yourself. I spent some time looking for loading screen help, but found no one who cared enough to put in the time and effort I wanted to make it look good. So I learned how to do it myself.
Download paint.net, create multiple layers. Bottom layer should be your background image, second layer should be your title. Poke around for some crazy fonts in windows and try using those (you can easily download new fonts and install them to windows for use within paint.net), or google how to do photoshop tutorials for titles and follow some step by step instructions.
If you intended your background image to be custom art, you're not going to find anyone to make it for you (well) without a huge time commitment or a huge pay check. So, instead you should work on setting up a screen shot to use, set it up and screen capture it yourself. Or alternatively follow the previous poster's advice and look around on battle.net and deviant art for a close-enough background image.
