So I see that they are being "re-vamped", but no one is even touching them, can someone please explain what is going on? User:Burntclaw/Sig 08:41, June 14, 2015 (UTC)
Im not sure, to be honest. I think the project is just trying to get the main objectives (the chararts needed for articles) out of the way beforehand, so were able to put all of our focus into the tutorials. Thats what i thought we were doing, anyway.~☯ Breeze Five Nights at Freddys 16:58, June 14, 2015 (UTC)
I'm not unlocking that page. People were posting tutorials without permission, and tbh, a lot of them still have outdated information. We should sit and talk about what we'll do, because otherwise, I will not lift the protection for the page. —Jayce Atlas falls ( 09:13, 6/18/2015 )
I think we should have a tutorial approval page, and maybe agree on which tutorials need updating? User:Burntclaw/Sig 00:49, June 20, 2015 (UTC)
Ehh...kinda sounds like a lot of work, but I'm not totally against it. I think it should still be locked, but have some people submit some tutorials to snowy or beebs, and then they can upload it on there themselves. Storm♫ 00:51, June 20, 2015 (UTC)
I think in the last discussion, tabbers were mentioned, yet not necessarily fully laid out. I'd say there'd just be tabbers concerning different types of patterns, with the foremost one being basics (shading, placement, eyes, earpink color, etc). As for "approval", many of the final products from the tutorials (finished cats), realistically, would not pass approval. The "tutorial approval page" would probably just be the talk page of the tutorials and would just need a vote, if we even wanted approval to that extent. Atelda insert vague subtext here 01:23, July 14, 2015 (UTC)
Alright, what's going on with this? Honestly, I think we need to approve each tutorial before it goes on the page. It's not good to be teaching people methods that aren't entirely true (some of the older images have even said that using pure white is forbidden, for example; this has been proven false), or older methods that are no longer in practice. Including texture would be interesting, as would including smudged shading. —Jayce Atlas falls ( 13:46, 7/21/2015 )
We definitely need to have them updated, they are pretty outdated, and I support adding new tutorials like texture. I agree with Atelda that we should use the talk page of the tutorials as the approval page, that way it won't clutter any of the other PCA pages. – Ivy ☆ 14:45, July 21, 2015 (UTC)
So far I see the following could be updated/added:
-The shading placement tutorial needs to be redone, with the new blanks and the redone blanks. Some of the placement is wrong too.
-Pupil placement needs a revamp
-Based on our current standard of how we do shading, most of the shading tutorials could be improved a little, but not necessarily redone.
-There should most definitely be more tutorials focused on different types of torties.
-Smudged shading tutorial
-Tweaking the color of an image
-Fixing the texture
User:Burntclaw/Sig 04:06, July 22, 2015 (UTC)
I agree. However, I do think the pupil placement tutorial is fine, other than the fact it needs to be updated with new blanks. I also think the black and white tutorials could be updated; as Snow pointed out the white tutorial says you can't use pure white, and the black cat looks kind of dark gray . – Ivy ☆ 16:02, July 22, 2015 (UTC)
I've already created an updated version of the pupil placement, more for myself but hopefully it's good enough to be added to the page. I agree with texture and smudged shading needs to be added and updated, and also white and black cats tutorials too. Also the colour against the ear pink, does that need updating?Stealthf🔥re ❤Warriors Forever!❤ 21:42, July 22, 2015 (UTC)
We should do this. Totally - those tutorials have helped me so much when I first started, but I didn't realize almost half of the images don't have light sources (and problems like that). Cheryl You're so Gorgeous ❤ ~03:40,7/25/2015
Can we have some comments? User:Burntclaw/Sig 06:51, July 31, 2015 (UTC)
It would be nice for the original owners of some of the tutorials (the owners who are still active) to maybe, re-do theirs? I have a tutorial on there, and I have grown in skills since then, and I wouldn't mind redoing it. I agree that some of the tutorials are outdated. Maybe if the original owners of the tutorials aren't active anymore, then someone could volunteer to redo their tutorial for them? Some of them, however, I say don't need redoing.. but I guess we could maybe nominate certain tutorials for tweaking/redoing, like you would a charart? Splook sweet creature 00:34 Sun Aug 2
Is this agreed on? User:Burntclaw/Sig 04:14, August 2, 2015 (UTC)
I'd love to contribute some of my skills to the apprentice tutorials :) User:Winterflurry/Sig 16:36, August 2, 2015 (UTC)
Yep, and some of the original artists of the tutorials can redo theirs of they want. I also agree that approving these arts at the tutorial talk page is better than here.Stealthf🔥re ❤Warriors Forever!❤ 03:39, August 4, 2015 (UTC)
i'm pretty sure this is, however an admin would need to unlock the page in order for this to proceed. User:Burntclaw/Sig 08:57, August 13, 2015 (UTC)
We might want to get some tutorials in process for approval before we scrap it all. Just shoot either Skye or I a message when you feel editing should begin. Atelda insert vague subtext here 19:20, August 13, 2015 (UTC)
So are we gonna undergo a "vote" as to what tutorials are to be redone? An example of this would be proposing what tutorial that is wished to be redone (OA's obviously have priority over their own), and explaining the changes that would be made. OA's can redo theirs automatically, and if the OA is not active, anyone can propose to do the tutorial and could undergo a vote/approval stage. I think the best way to go about this is to create a forum to make this organized and clean. Splook sweet creature 22:56 Sat Aug 22
i think we could have a couple of tutorials going first. maybe somebody upload an example of a new tutorial? If it goes well, then I think the page can be unlocked and the approval and elimination process can carry out ^^ User:Burntclaw/Sig 02:33, September 17, 2015 (UTC)
ok im really gonna be that person but cats like rosetail, specklepaw, birdsong, etc. isnt it an assumption to assume that theyre all pinkish-orange in rosetails case, or completely speckled like specklepaw is when its only his head described. like sure it might look dumb and not realistic, but warriors has never been about realism. so. my onion is that they should be tweaked to have said patterns/colours/whatever only where they were mentioned to be. david 🌈 18:33, August 3, 2015 (UTC)
I agree. Not just because i nominated specklepaw, but because if theyre only mentioned with one part specifically colored, then they shoukd have that User:Winterflurry/Sig 20:09, August 3, 2015 (UTC)
Just saying, the cite for Specklepaw's description, it says he has "a pale brown freckled head" - so technically there's nothing saying the rest of his body as pale brown, unless there's another time he's described I missed. So using that idea, the rest of his body could be gray or white or something - we don't know. Obviously that doesn't make too much sense, and I'm not taking either side, just pointing out... – Ivy ☆ 00:03, August 4, 2015 (UTC)
I'm probably going to sound like a jerk since I just woke up but... Technically, we are all making huge assumptions when we make chararts- we don't know that this character is meant to look like this or not, and when we give a character a torn ear, we have no idea if it's its left ear or right ear, and so on. I think in this case, it's okay to make such assumptions, since it's pretty obvious that the rest of Specklepaw and such characters look like the way they are now. User:Burntclaw/Sig 00:16, August 4, 2015 (UTC)
There's a lot of vague descriptions like that. Ravenwing for example has a thick-furred leg, but he is listed as thick-furred. (that's more an example, thick-furred doesn't affect the art). I say if it's realistically possible a cat can have just a speckled head or a striped tail then go ahead. I definitely know a different coloured-tail tip is completely possible, and there's enough to say that Rosetail only has pinkish fur at her tail. (her name for one...)Stealthf🔥re ❤Warriors Forever!❤ 03:42, August 4, 2015 (UTC)
'its obvious they look like that' but you dont 100% know that. and we're working from a description- as long as it matches the description, then its not an assumption, we're working from what we think they look like, but we also have proof. it doesnt matter if its that obvious, we dont have the proof, then we shouldnt add it. chararts are allowed to be whatever type of tabby and such because of artistic liberty, true, but if we went off 'we dont know what they truly look like', there'd be no art in history ever, honestly. david 🌈 06:22, August 4, 2015 (UTC)
You kind of missed my point there- I was saying, if we make assumptions big enough to make art, then I think these images could pass off fine, since charart making is already a rather huge assumption. User:Burntclaw/Sig 09:52, August 4, 2015 (UTC)
I'm just going to slide in here and say that we decided to change Rosetail's coloring, since that was the only color we had for her... I seriously don't think we should change the chararts based on that alone. If it's realistic, then change it, but if it's not...just let it go. —Jayce Atlas falls ( 11:35, 8/4/2015 )
Rosetail is a tabby, therefore she's default brown, she was named after her tail, so only her tail should be pinkish brown imho. User:Winterflurry/Sig 13:32, August 4, 2015 (UTC)
ok but: making a cat thats been described as a certain kind of cat is not assuming. it's following the description. it's absolutely assuming to say a cat like specklepaw is covered in speckles - it only says his head. we can hardly call ourselves a factual wiki if we go and assume this, when we arent allowed to assume anything else. david 🌈 18:29, August 4, 2015 (UTC)
Okay. It makes sense to have a cat with a let's say "brown tabby tail" and no other description, to be brown. That does not mean he should be a tabby (striped cat). That goes the same with Specklepaw. Rosetail was said to be tabby and brown, with a pinkish tail, but nobody said what brown she is, so I guess she could be pinkish brown? The color and pattern are totally different things in a cat imo, but many people are saying that it's the same - Why would a cat with brown tabby tail get gray fur? If it's not the tail that's what makes the cat special, why not say a striped cat? I believe they specially described Specklepaw to be unique from a usual spotted cat by saying he has a spotted head? I just can't explain it, but to me it's just common sense... Very sorry if I'm rude, that's just what happens when I can't explain what I desperately want to express. Ugh. All hail my explaining skills? Cheryl You're so Gorgeous ❤ ~13:13,8/8/2015
I'm aware it doesn't make sense - my point of saying this was to say it didn't. The only part of Specklepaw ever to be described was his head. I'd agree totally with you if they called him "a brown tom with a freckled head" but they described him with a brown freckled head. They weren't specifying that just his head was freckled, they were just describing a particular part of his fur... it's just as likely to be brown throughout as is to be freckled based on what description we've been given. Does this even make sense...? – Ivy ☆ 13:42, August 8, 2015 (UTC)
they specifically called him brown - they didnt call the rest of him freckled, only his head. so why are we adding the entire thing when it was never said? and its nothing special in warriors. we've got grey cats with brown legs. i dont get why we get to assume this when theres a strict no assumption policy. and as for rosetail omly her tail should be pink as well, its the only part ever said to be pinkish and its still an assumption to think shes all rosy coloured too. david 🌈 18:37, August 8, 2015 (UTC)
They did not specifically call him brown. I have the book (not with me right now though) and it says something like: "Daisytail could remember when his freckled, pale brown head..." it's whoever put the cite on the wiki that called him a pale brown tom, not CotC, it only describes his head as pale brown, unless I'm missing something – Ivy ☆ 20:13, August 8, 2015 (UTC)
well OK dont snark at me because i havent read that book. whatever i dont know if he'd keep his charart or what but yeah, it still needs tweaking if its decided to not be. i dont care if its as obvious as a fantails tail, it needs to go. now are people gareeing or disagreeing on this or what? david 🌈 20:33, August 8, 2015 (UTC)
The only description we have of Specklepaw is a pale brown speckled head. That's it. It seems to me the Erin's thought it was good enough for the readers and left it as that. Hawkfoot is the same too, only her description of her head and nothing else.Stealthf🔥re ❤Warriors Forever!❤ 08:21, August 18, 2015 (UTC)
(I literally just woke up so) It's an assumption to say she has other colors. If we have a citation for her tail, then she should have the same color everywhere. User:Burntclaw/Sig 00:56, August 23, 2015 (UTC)
no, she shouldnt. the only colour we have is for her tail. by all rights she probably shouldnt even have an image, but since we've got the brown tabby thing, thats what should be used. youre still assuming shes entirely pinkish. HotTeacher69 (talk) 11:09, September 11, 2015 (UTC)
We have ONE color of her- it's an assumption to say she has other colors, we aren't assuming she's entirely pinkish- she /has/ one color, and we have no cite for other colors. She should stay pinkish. User:Burntclaw/Sig 02:37, September 17, 2015 (UTC)
it was only ever her tail described, you are assuming the rest of her is pinkish. we shouldnt be picking and choosing what we describe- if its her tail only, then it should be her tail only. this is the entire point of the brown tabby option; if we dont have a colour, we use it. HotTeacher69 (talk) 02:40, September 17, 2015 (UTC)
She was named for her tail, not her whole pelt. It even says just her tail User:Winterflurry/Sig 03:09, September 17, 2015 (UTC)
We are still assuming she has other colors, we have one color, so what if it's her tail? We don't know if her legs and bodies are going to be other colors, we have one color of her fur, we don't have others. User:Burntclaw/Sig 03:11, September 17, 2015 (UTC)
Shes specifically stated as tabby is she not? And isnt default tabby brown? So what if she has one color for her tail, it should still only be her tail, it was specifically aaid just her tail User:Winterflurry/Sig 03:15, September 17, 2015 (UTC)
we're not assuming she has other colours though. we just don't know what her main pelt colour is. that's why we use the brown tabby, because otherwise cats like speckletail wouldn't have images. she's called tabby, yeah, and it'd be false to say that she's entirely pinkish. HotTeacher69 (talk) 09:59, September 17, 2015 (UTC)
I'm just gonna butt in here and say that Winter is absolutely correct for Rosetail's case- she would need to be a brown tabby with a pinkish-orange tail..which makes no sense whatsoever, but it's what we have. —Jayce Atlas falls ( 10:06, 9/17/2015 )
I still think that "brown tabby" default is foolish. It's an assumpation and I thought we were heavily against those here. Whatever. we can bring that up another time. Appledash the light of honor 12:13, September 17, 2015 (UTC)
It is not an assumption at all. Didn't you guys ask Kate what the default tabby is? And isn't she the one to go by?? User:Winterflurry/Sig 12:50, September 17, 2015 (UTC)
One of the Erin's confirmed that otherwise specified otherwise, a tabby is brown. I still think it's an assumption that Rosetail is completely pinkish.Stealthf🔥re ❤Warriors Forever!❤ 22:11, September 24, 2015 (UTC)
Frecklewish (TC) Brown Alt
I honestly don't want to repeat myself on the approval page. I think its a partial. User:Burntclaw/Sig 10:27, August 18, 2015 (UTC)
They're from two completely different parts of the novella, so I disagree with you, Burnt. I fail to see how it's a partial. I could understand if it was part of the same chapter, or... if Frecklewish was already pale brown or whatever have you, but she's not. There's quite a few things in between those cites, and I'm also pretty sure she's even called her canon description once or twice. —Jayce Atlas falls ( 22:21, 8/19/2015 )
I have to disagree.
It really does not matter of what part it is, for all we know, it could be describing pale, it could be describing near to black- brown. It's an assumption to say that it is not pale brown, the pale brown alt represents the mistake fine. User:Burntclaw/Sig 04:02, August 20, 2015 (UTC)
Well, with that in mind we'd have to go through and remove every alt for every cat called grey instead of black or ginger instead of brown and stuff like that because it's """partial""" because no specific shade was mentioned.
Honestly I think that one comment I made in freaking 2013 or whatever was made in attempt to look authoritive. I don't think I actually had any idea what I was talking about, and I honestly really don't agree with it now, and haven't for quite a long time. Brown is a shade in itself; just because it's not specified whether it's dark or light, because even they have different shades within them too. /: ★ Berry ★ Midnight Monster's Parade! 13:41 Thu Aug 20
Please bear in mind that I'm not using your argument in 2013 against you, firstly. =/
Secondly... brown is still a part of pale brown. That's why we give freedom for users to chose any shade of brown when a shade is not mentioned. It's an assumption to say it's darker than pale, and again, the pale represents brown fine. We don't need a separate image. User:Burntclaw/Sig 14:37, August 21, 2015 (UTC)
I'm just gonna say that the neutral shade thing isn't mandatory, but we do prefer it, I think. We can't force users to change the shade based on a rule we don't really have. And honestly, it does seem like you're using Berry's comment against her; you probably shouldn't have even brought it up to begin with.. —Jayce Atlas falls ( 15:42, 8/21/2015 )
I apologize for bringing it up, but did I ever mention the comment again? I don't need to get accused of trying to get Berry's image declined. :/ User:Burntclaw/Sig 02:59, August 22, 2015 (UTC)
No, it's not. Only 3 people have really bothered to argue on this one, really. :/ can we wait for other comments from different members of PCA? User:Burntclaw/Sig 23:51, September 19, 2015 (UTC)
Since an artist could choose to make a cat with the description "brown" pale brown, I don't think it counts. Pale brown and brown are the same color, as the book never said she was medium brown or dark brown. However, if, for instance, Firestar was called dark red with white markings, would he get a new alt or would the dark red alt be tweaked?(I know this is a bad example because Firestar is dead now, but pretend he's not) It depends on what you think requires an alt. bcprincess a giant woman 01:56, September 21, 2015 (UTC)
It's been really... yea. I thought I wouldn't need to comment on this, but I don't think she needs a brown alt. I only know one thing I saw in the guidelines: for a character to need an alt, it has to be at least two shades away, say, light brown and dark brown. Brown and pale brown are not two shades away. And I don't get the "which parts in a book" thing, but I know a gray cat won't get two different alts for being called ginger twice. Cheryl You're so Gorgeous ❤ ~14:53,9/25/2015
Just here to toss in a little opinion. I'm probably not gonna comment any more on this, you guys can do with this info as you wish.
For characters that are described as silver-gray tabbies, such as Feathertail, silver-gray may or may not imply a blue/gray silver tabby, rather than a black silver or a plain gray tabby. Don't bother google image searching, since as far as google's concerned, gray is pretty much synonymous for silver, which makes it unbelievably hard to find pictures for them unless you already know what you're looking for. Basically what they're just like the normal silver tabbies, except instead of pure black stripes, the stripes are the same color they would be on a normal gray tabby, while the base color is very pale, sometimes nearly white. Unfortunately these pretty kitties were all I could find in the way of examples, and I can't even guarantee they're all true blue silver tabbies. But regardless, they get the idea across of what a blue silver tabby looks like.
You guys can do what you will with this information. I don't know if this is what the erin's meant by silver-gray. I don't know if you guys want to interpret it that way. (though I will point out that it wouldn't be much different from the assumption that smoky = smoke) I don't know if you want to go as far as tweaking the silver-gray cats' images. No clue. Just wanted to toss this out there.
Considering their stripes are alot lighter/more blue tinted than a normal silver tabby, then it could go either way honestly. I have no objections to going through with this or not doing so and leaving them be.~☯ Breeze Five Nights at Freddys 19:56, August 21, 2015 (UTC)
Nothing- Paleh was just explaining that silver-gray tabbies could be what she linked above. We don't need to do anything with the information if we don't want to. And personally, I don't really want to either. We don't know if they're implying blue-gray or not... —Jayce Atlas falls ( 11:03, 9/9/2015 )
Since PC is pretty close to making this minor characters page, I'd like to suggest an idea for chararts for the page. Since there are probably gonna be a lot of cats and we can't just put 'Minorchar1.warrior.png', 'Minorchar2.warrior.png' etc. forever, I say we should have a few generic images made up for this page, with basic patterns/pelt colours like, like brown [tabby], black, silver [tabby], etc.. It'd be a lot easier than making an image for every single minor character, plus naming would be a lot easier. Thoughts? ★ Berry ★ Midnight Monster's Parade! 07:19 Tue Sep 8
i think having like five different images for each pelt type [like, for example, five different types of tabby, or five tortoiseshells] or something would be okay as we could just reuse them. Queen Beebs 19:14, September 8, 2015 (UTC)
I fail to see the point in that. They're all described differently - why would we need a generic image? They don't all look alike, and if anything I actually don't see why we're making a minor character page. Does this mean all of the minor character articles would be deleted? Appledash the light of honor 19:42, September 8, 2015 (UTC)
No, Icy. There is no way that's happening. This page is for minor characters that aren't named within the series, but do have descriptions and a slight bit of history. —Jayce Atlas falls ( 10:59, 9/9/2015 )
^ Accuse us of wanting more art if you want, but then again, this is like making a tortie image for every single tortie cat in Warriors :/ Cats looks different and none of their pelts match- tbh, do we even need chararts for the minor characters page? User:Burntclaw/Sig 01:46, September 11, 2015 (UTC)
So you guys are prepared to come up for different names, correct those names when more characters are inevitably added to the list, and make hundreds and hundreds of images for characters that really are barely worth a second glance? It's too much work. One image for each common pelt type will make it so much easier to have people focus on other things. Like putting the actual page together. Because if we do make this page, it'll take forever to be written. It'll take even longer if people are more focused on the art than the page itself, which is what will happen if every single minor character gets an individual image.
I'd say that we don't need any art for this page. i mean... These characters barely have any significance and their history would be less than one sentence, the art would take up too much space on the page and look awkward with the one-sentence history.
But if we are going with art, cats don't look the same. It doesn't matter that they are minor characters? They should still get the individual image. It's like giving every single character a basis image- cats have different pelt patterns. but TBH, there shouldn't need to be art on a page where histories have only one sentence. User:Burntclaw/Sig 06:54, September 11, 2015 (UTC)
So...do I go and edit the template I've made up? It's going to look a bit bland and..strange without the image.
Speaking of the template, I was told to make the history part of it. So it wouldn't look 'odd'. And so what if they all look the same? If you don't have an image, the page is boring and unreadable if you have a short attention span. I actually do have trouble reading and editing the longer articles because really...there's nothing interesting besides a long wall of text. I'm not saying it's a bad thing, but for me and others with issues with attention spans, yeah, it wouldn't be a very easy page to even look at.
There would be nothing wrong with several characters having the same image. Absolutely nothing. Because you do find cats that have very nearly identical pelt colours/patterns in real life, and don't tell me you can't. Every black cat has the same colour, and every white cat has the same unless they're going yellow, which we wouldn't have proof for for any of these cats.
I think just go with what normally is happening with pages. We haven't even sorted how many charaacters/which characters we will be adding, so try not to assume. This was posted too quickly honestly.Stealthf🔥re ❤Warriors Forever!❤ 08:29, September 14, 2015 (UTC)
Alright, so I was doing my usual "Jayce questions life at 6 am" thing, and I came across something. Why do images like Bouncefire's alt warrior depict him with stripes? I understand that he's a ginger cat, and all of them have stripes... but, he is not shown with stripes in the graphic novel- in fact, the white is the only reason he has the alt to begin with. Should it be redone..? He's clearly shown as a solid cat with a white underbelly. —Jayce Atlas falls ( 10:25, 9/9/2015 )
Oh, they are very much canon. o.o We don't use them to prove or deny descriptions (like Longtail being a pale color or something like that), and some of our characters are graphic-only characters; Cinders, Sol's Father, Diesel, Millie initially, Pine, ect. I'm just confused as to why he's shown with stripes in his alternate charart (not talking about the normal images), when the image he gets it for does not show him with stripes. —Jayce Atlas falls ( 10:45, 9/9/2015 )
Alright, so seeing Stealthfire's thing on Stormtail got me thinking. When we implemented the week limit for tweaks on the tweak page (not the claim time), we had a fair bit more members than we do now, and it was like that to prevent people from hogging tweaks, or uploading them...like... every six days or something like that. Since many things that are tweaked are brought up after the image is approved for tweaking (a very good example is Stormtail, in this case; Stealthfire was asked to fix the shading and ear pink, among other things), and some of it isn't easy.
No, I'm not calling anyone here inexperienced. That's hardly what I mean. Different colors are harder to work with than others. Lineart tweaks are another thing that are easy for some (like Berry), or harder for others (like me). What I'd like to do is promise eliminating the tweak limit of one week, and either extending it to the two weeks, like redone images, or just get rid of it altogether. I would think that it would lessen the amount of.. rushed tweaks, so to say, because people are so adamant on getting it done within one week. It might take some of the stress off people too, imo.
We usually do have an unwritten limit, and if someone feels that another user is claiming too many, then they usually speak up. I think we had it on... three or four images, or claiming an entire set of images; like say if Flametail were redone. An entire set would be his kit, apprentice, mca, mc, and StarClan image, but since you can layer the mca/app lineart over each other, that counts as one image..and maybe one or two small tweaks. I've spoken up before when I think someone's claimed too many tweaks, and if you want to set a limit in stone, that's fine with me.
This also isn't an invitation to nominate someone else's images just because you like the character and you know they are unable to claim them. (I am not saying anyone in particular; I know this has happened before and I do not want to see it again.) If I ever see anyone doing it, I will automatically decline the nomination and I would even like to consider barring someone from claiming tweaks for one week. I've had that done to me before and it's one of the rudest things someone can ever do. —Jayce Atlas falls ( 14:03, 9/15/2015 )
Yeah I think really lengthy tweaks and redo's should be longer, cause really redo's are like creating a new image, and I was lucky my last approved image just made a week. I looked through the guidelines and this is what it said: A user can have a maximum of three images claimed via the tweak nomination page at a time, excluding images in a set.Stealthf🔥re ❤Warriors Forever!❤ 21:27, September 15, 2015 (UTC)
Question for Photoshop users
So I've been seeing people (who probably don't use Photoshop) talking about putting shading layers on multiply. It's apparently supposed to make everything outside the blank disapear. When I do it with the highlights they just entirely disapear, and with the shading nothing happens at all. So, does this method not work with Photoshop? bcprincess a giant woman 15:03, September 18, 2015 (UTC)
I've used Photoshop since I was incredibly young, and I've never heard of shadows 'disappearing' outside any lines after Multiply.
The reason your highlights vanished is because Multiply makes things darker depending on how dark or light the layer's color is, e.g. a light gray would make everything barely darker, while a pure black would make everything pure black... if that makes sense. White would do absolutely nothing under Multiply.
If you're looking for a way to easily erase all the waste, here's what I've been doing: on the lineart's layer, use the Paint Bucket tool to paint the background a bright color. Then, once you're done with your picture, use the Magic Wand tool to select all the bright color, and delete it. While still selected, go through all the other layers and press delete on each one; this should delete all waste in the selected area, which is your background. Then deselect when done.
To answer your question: I've never heard of such a 'method', and it's easy enough to delete the waste without going through it with the Eraser tool. So... *shrug* --ZootVine (talk) 18:34, September 18, 2015 (UTC)
I do use that method you suggested. The multiply-making-shadows-disapear thing is mentioned in the apprentice tutorials. Maybe in Gimp or Paint or something like that Multiply is something else? Thanks for answering! bcprincess a giant woman 21:35, September 18, 2015 (UTC)
What multiply does is to use the colors from the top and bottom and multiply them together, it results in a darker image and usually, using this layer mode on highlights isn't a good idea. I'd suggest the layer mode Overlay, it combines the multiply and screen blend modes- it gets rid of the waste and usually makes the highlights look more natural. I hope this helped ;) User:Burntclaw/Sig 23:53, September 19, 2015 (UTC)
It doesn't for me sometimes. Layer modes don't work exactly the same on GIMP and Photoshop (I know because I use both) I think you should just get rid of waste by deleting it - if you want to prevent from needing to blur it again (I know it might be hard for new users), just duplicate your layer and make it invisible before deleting waste.

When you set it to multiply, the waste won't automatically disappear. It will disappear once you've got rid of the background. User:Burntclaw/Sig 23:40, September 25, 2015 (UTC)
So I was flipping through Kate's blog and here's what I found:
How do i become a Apprentice?
Since I'm an apprentice myself I'm probably going to explain this in the worst way possible. Create an image, and at some point in time I think a senior warrior or the deputy or leader will make you an apprentice when they see that you know what you are doing. (I think that's how it goes? If I misworded it, someone else can explain.) ~Skiddley Riddley ♫ ♪ 03:44, September 24, 2015 (UTC)
This has been bugging me for a while so i'll just get straight to the point. Does anyone think it'd be a good idea to shrink the apprentice StarClan images? That was done with the kits, and I don't think apprentices are as big as warriors (they're about 6 - 12 moons, and warriors are 12 moons. I think you're still considered a kitten, even after 6 moons, but obviously you don't need to be as small as the kit blanks but /then/ you might be as big as a warrior. idk) I'm not being very clear because I've short time ... but yeah. Someone brought it up to me and I thought I'd bring it here. Thoughts? Appledash the light of honor 14:48, September 24, 2015 (UTC)
Hmm, yeah shrinking is okay. They haven't been given a separate blank because apprentices are typically seen as an equal to warriors and that.Stealthf🔥re ❤Warriors Forever!❤ 22:07, September 24, 2015 (UTC)
I think their fine there is no need to. The dead apprentices are treated like warriors, and most of them seem to grow like warriors. Besides- they're technically warriors in training, just with a different name. ❀ mei ❀ 22:17, September 24, 2015 (UTC)
i dont agree. we might as well have different sized apprentice and kit blanks because they grow during that, then. its unecessary, not to mention it will distort the images, and i dont think theres a way to shrink images this small without it happening. david 🌈 22:20, September 24, 2015 (UTC)
Rejoin as an apprentice?
I was an apprentice in PCA, but I got very busy with personal things, so I got removed for inactivity. Do you think it would be possible for me to rejoin as an apprentice? The Stylish Ravenpelt I'm too hot! (Hot damn!) 13:51, September 25, 2015 (UTC)
