    I have more of a niche skill to contribute and I'd be really happy to be a part of the graphics team. I think I've contributed a lot to the forum and have been around since Dota-Allstars.com. I went through a bit of trouble during the beta-key distribution (purely because of my love for DotA), but I really think I've made up for it.

    - Reason for joining
    Well, I've spent a lot of time creating animated avatars for Playdota.com which can be used on other forums as well (including Twitter!). It has gotten to the point where I can make four or five a day depending on my free time. Considering that there are countless ways to make these avatars, I can guarantee that there are plenty more to come. I also update my signature every day with a new 'featured' avatar and complete requests on demand.

    - Photoshop/sig making experience
    I'm not exactly a photoshop buff, although I do use it occasionally. Sometimes I'll create really cheap photoshop images just for laughs, but nothing serious. As I said, my specialty is creating gif's and especially those used on forums. This is why I think I would be an excellent addition to the team. If a forum user can personalize their account with an avatar and/or signature, I specialize in the animated avatar.

    - Examples of your works (5-7 should be fine)
    My signature shows my .gif collection. There are over 80 of them and their numbers are constantly growing. The more I make, the better they get. Check em' out :)

    I've also begun dabbling in animated user-bars. This is my first one- and I know I can get better at it with the more I make.


    Thanks, and I hope to be a part of the team :)

    Reason for Joining:
    This has been my new purpose in life. It's like my day is incomplete without thinking new concept/s, learning new techniques and practicing my skills. And thanks to the people here in PladyDotA because a lot of them urge and encourage me to put effort and hardwork in this stuff. This is my only way to help others by making signatures and the likes for them and showing my gratitude because they help me also. This is my passion.

    Photoshop/Sig making experience:
    I started learning in Photoshop since March 2009; trying different kinds of art thru wallpapers, still signatures. In animated signatures, i started last month of June 2012. I admit that i need to take a lot of learning curves for me to improve my skills that's why i continue to study for it.

    Examples of my Works:
    I have been doing a lot of animated signatures you can check some of it here in my portfolio:

    Reason for joining and Experience combined in an essay-ish thing:
    So that I can have the authority to clean up all the things in Member Requests. When I first started coming here it was a nice and clean place where the Graphic crew members were the people who could make proper comments and critics and also clean up the Member Request section. The rules in the section said only GC can take up requests but due to the two main mods dying and going inactive the rules were no longer valid. So I decided to take up requests and learn PS. It helped me spend my time much more productively and also it increased my creativity. I read hundreds of tutorials tried every techniques. In my time to shine I pretty much fulfilled every requests and improved along the way. Frankly the whole reason why I wanted to learn to make good signatures is that I wanted to have a badge that I can carry around all around the forum and also a title which pretty much comes with it. So yeah I really think I deserve this.

    Examples of my Works:
    In my eyes I can't really see which of my works are better or worse. So instead of copying my portfolio here I would like to ask you (Lycan probably) to go to my portfolio.

    Yours truly, Fate Trap. (Also I'm a bit sad that I wasn't accepted before this T^T)
