Hello!  Dear Brandi could you PLEASE, PLEASE make me an autumn avatar??

Is there somewhere that you have written about how you do this/how you learned to do this?  This is all new to me and so far I find it absolutely fascinating how you do this!!!

Thank you so much in advance.

You really do make this board beautiful.

Oh, thank you, Justamama!

I just love images and computers and taught myself everything I could about manipulating and animating them.

Do you want me to use the image you have now of the sock monkey and decorate it for Autumn or are you interested in a whole new look?

Let me know and I'll get started on yours!

~Brandi

Brandi, you're self-taught?! Your work is amazing!!

My avatar is not only outdated and simplistic, but is not even a Monkey one! (egads!) Could you make one for me when you have time? I don't need anything fancy; I love everything about Fall and I'm so excited to finally have a "real" SM avi!

Hello mediamama!

Could you find a monkey that you like and then I'll decorate it for Fall? Monkeys are so different looking, and an avatar is so personal, if you could find one you like, I'll decorate it!

I hate picking out a monkey for someone else, since everyone has different tastes and some want a cute one, some want a solemn one, some want a crying one, some want a cartoon one, etc.

Let me know if you can find something you like. If not, let me know and I'll try another approach Wink

I'd be very happy to make you a Fall avatar once we choose a monkey to use.

If it helps, I like anything nice, sweet, not mean or tough looking.  Not sad.  Something that makes people happy to look at and I would like a happy monkey or really any animal you have.  Actually I would be happy with ANYTHING you make.  I'm just so amazed with what you do!

How do you make these things move?  And the water on these looks like a moving fantasy.  Really keeps me entertained.

I just finished making some choices for you and went to upload them to be able to post them here, and photobucket image hosting is down for maintenance!

If I cannot get them posted before I go to bed tonight, I'll post them tomorrow.

Oh ... the animation? It is done with animation software. Like photoshop or paintshop pro animation shop. I use both. And I am learning new techniques every day! It's quite fun. (And frustrating. LOL)

~Brandi

Photobucket came back online, so I can post these to you.

I really thought about what to design for you. I just think of you as the sock monkey and can't seem to get it out of my mind. LOL

Here are some sock monkeys to use, if you like any of them. I included your original, one upsized a bit.



Then I designed a summer-themed one with one of them since you mentioned how you like to look at animated water.



Then while photobucket was down for maintenance, I saw this one in my files that I thought was a cute monkey. I made his eyes blue then put him into an animated waterfall background.



Not blinking:


I am a little out of ideas for the night.

Let me know what you think, and if you have any specific ideas of what you would like.

~Brandi



OH I'M SO EXCITED!!!!!

In keeping with the sock monkey theme could I please have the sock monkey with the big orange flower in her 'hair'? and against the mountain/water back ground Thank you SOOO MUCH!!!

I mirrored her position so you can see her delicate eyelashes that I put on her. LOL Hope you like it!

I'll decorate her for Autumn and post it here when I post all the others on Labor day. Wink

Hi Brandi


Mymonkey said he would love a Autumn look...hope you are doing well!!

Thank you so much for all the diligent work...your the best!! 

Thanks for coming by and making sure you are on my Autumn list. This year, I am only doing people who I know will come by and see/use them.

I already made you a couple and will post them when I post all the Autumn avatars. Shouldn't be too long now, probably on Labor Day.

Hi Brandi

I have pictures taken of the property in the fall with the trees in full color and with the ponds an dwoods frozen in the winter. Would you like to look and see if they would work out for backgrounds. If you think so I will email them to you. I tried to get some pics today of the donks but it was so nice out the brats wouldn't stay still. Too busy playing Monkey Devil!

While I was waiting on your reply, I thought about a media monkey and what it brought to mind was these I made ... gotta have the newspaper boy's cap on, of course. LOL





Just thought I'd show you them, and get your opinion.

Hey Brandi,
I guess it is time for my love monkeys to get out of the pool.  can you please decorate my avatar?  I love flowers so I was thinking of them holding an aster or other fall blooming plant.  But I will go for almost anything an angelic monkey  You are the best.

Hi atlanta_mom!

I don't believe I have ever decorated your avatar before, but I put these designs together for you to consider:

No animated leaves falling:

Hey Brandi,
I really like the one with the fence and animated leaves.  I don't remember how to choose this one.  It has been a while since I have done this.  Thank you so much..

The one I think you want is: http://i380.photobucket.com/albums/oo242/Brandi-Monkey/AUTUMN/2010/Atlanta-mom3a.gif


Use that URL in the box. Make sure you clear out the box completely before pasting it in there!

If you have problems doing this, let me know and I can ask Klaas to do it for you. But I think you can do it!

~Brandi

I resized the above image avatar size so you can see what it looks like. It is very small and very wide with the stuffed bear in it.



Then I removed the stuffed bear. It is still quite small, and difficult to see.



So I decided to crop part of the monkey out and make the paper she is reading shorter so you could see her in an avatar. Then I made a couple of Fall avatars using that cropped image. I included a framed an non-framed version of each and also made her eyes blink, but the eyes are very dark, so you have to look closely to see them. Here are two examples:

http://i380.photobucket.com/albums/oo242/Brandi-Monkey/AUTUMN/2010/1-1.gif

Tell me your thoughts, mediamama! I can make changes if you have any suggestions.
