skanks


#1

Hey everyone. I don’t really know why, but all of a sudden I’ve been making shitloads of variants of my original av, which was just a play on the original SNK logo. I ended up with SKANK in the original blue, then I started a blog and decided to make other ones to fill up the page. I first just made a color invert, then I made a color spectrum… pretty soon I had themed ones being made, and that’s where I am now really. I guess the point of this thread is to just keep it updated with whatever new ones I come up with. Here are the one’s I’ve done so far:

I’ll tag each, but most of the themed ones will be instantly recognizable.

column one:

original play on SNK logo
Google
color invert of OG skank
4chan
black/white pixelated
binder paper
Dr. Pepper
color spectrum

column two:

Myspace
Yahoo!
In-N-Out
YouTube (my personal favorite)
frontpage SRK logo with Chun
KoF98UM
Chibi style
Bank of America

column three:

Jack in the Box
The Home Depot
Tabasco
Discovery Channel
GameFAQs frontpage

I put a good amount of effort into these (the SRK one almost killed me, so much manual gradient work), and I’m actually surprised with my results since I don’t know jack shit about even intermediate image manipulation (I use Paint.NET with a dash of MS Paint :sweat:). So there you have it—my skanks thus far. I only started working on them in my spare time around this past Sunday, but I’m pleased with what I’ve been able to do since then.

I’ll gladly consider any idea/ theme I haven’t done or thought of yet :wgrin:. I’ll bump this with each new one I complete.

Damn cool, MezzoForte.

#5

I thought this was a thread about NBA player Boris Diaw at a nightclub (Google it)

Nice designs.


#6

Thanks; rep is much appreciated as well.

LOL, yeah sorry for the misleading title, guys :sweat:.

Capcom vs SKANK


#8

How about a SF4 Skank?


#9

A SF4 skank was actually one of my first ideas, but looking at the official logo, I realized it would sort of be a challenge to make one look all brushy and artsy while keeping the integrity of the original design. I’ll definitely see what I can do, but yeah thanks for prompting that. Gotta get back to work on these!

I think this is a good reference point:

Here’s a pretty bad ass spot to snag the logo, thanks to Huy-N.

Holy shit, those will definitely come in handy.

#16

I also would like to see Capcom vs. SKANK and SFIV SKANK.

This is too good


#18

This thread title is misleading.


#19

Dang, it’s been a while (way too busy lately), but I’m still at it! I like how this one turned out. Skank in the Box… :rofl:. Next up: Subway.
