Chaos Elemental

current version


Reason: The current image has fake particles. The original particles are as in this image (obtained using anti-eraser on the original image) and as you can see the particles in the current image are over the arm in the front. This can never be the real in-game particles, and we are showing much more particles than the CE actually has in-game. This is actually a violation of RS:IMP#Fan art, and I don't think we should have this. I think we should show the real particles like they are in-game, which is this. (if trans should be corrected somewhere just ask me)

  • Comment - Let me be honest, the image with the background looks better than all of the rest. The no background makes it look kind of dull. I suggest that it is replaced with the original one, even though it's not transparent. The transparency just makes images look worse and have less meaning in my opinion.

  • Oppose - New one looks fake and artefacty. User_talk:Fswe1 Fswe1 Brassica Prime symbol.png 07:15, April 23, 2011 (UTC)
  • Comment - In fact, the new one is the real one and the current one has been edited and is not the real CE(fake). This is what I'm trying to prevent: creating the illusion the CE has so many particles below it. This is something we shouldn't do. JOEYTJE50TALKpull my finger 10:35, April 23, 2011 (UTC)
  • Support Change; Oppose Suggested Replacement - Either keep the background entirely or add transparency to the original file. I would prefer the latter. EDIT: I don't like the suggested placement, so that transparency should be redone unless the background would just be kept.--Joel amos Talk Contribs 15:25, April 23, 2011 (UTC)
Look, the particle trans I did is the real amount of particles in-game. Could you be a bit more detailed on what you'd like to see in the particles, because if we would be editing the image again we could as well keep this one. JOEYTJE50TALKpull my finger 10:46, April 26, 2011 (UTC)
I know, nevertheless it looks a bit... jpg-y around the edges. User_talk:Fswe1 Fswe1 Brassica Prime symbol.png 17:00, April 26, 2011 (UTC)
More specifically, the sides of the proposed version need to fade into 100% transparency. Currenty, some of the lines (especially on the bottom right) are way to distinct.--Joel amos Talk Contribs 20:39, April 26, 2011 (UTC)

  • Oppose - Looks like there's too little cloud on the new one.  Tien  18:38, April 29, 2011 (UTC)

Correction: I took people's comments at face value (since it was their opinions), but that was under the assumption that the current image is valid. I never actually saw the elemental in-game, and thus operated under the assumption that the opposers did and that Joey just missed the larger cloud. When it has been brought to my attention that the current featured image is actually altered, this means that it is both a violation of the image policy and that the opposers' arguments on the grounds of the replacement being fake are in effect void. As such, Yes check.svg the chaos elemental image will be replaced. --LiquidTalk 00:33, April 30, 2011 (UTC)
