No this is not an opinion poll.

I am not really artistically talented, but I do like to read. When I discovered a few fan made bookmarks(forget where), I thought, what a great idea, fan made bookmarks, I must steal this idea(not the artwork mind you)!

So I made a few in photoshop some months back.

I have just now remembered them and thought you might enjoy them.

Damnit! I guess thats what I get for storing images in a yahoo briefcase, or just sucking at image posting in general.

Can somebody please help me?

edit: GermanFryFan, how would i go about doing such a thing? Like I said, I suck at this.

I though so too, but I didn't really want to cram too much stuff in. What do you suggest?

Also, When you print them out on photo paper, they look kinda proffessional, I have had people at my school stop me while reading and ask where I bought my bookmark. Dunno, maybe they were just stupid.

I would suggest the PE ship flying down, or a design involving transport tubes. But that's just me.

Sent an email to Germanfryfan, so hopefully the pictures will be up soon.

I changed the original bookmarks a little, tell me if you like the changes.
I also made a Bender bookmark.

Once there were commercial posters for local libraries in Germany (at least in my city) with the line .

The bender one is now marking my spot in Hollywood 2D Digital Animation.
Reading tech manuals still counts as reading.. so does reading beer labels.

i like the book marks but i think (like you said) that the ones with stuff in the corner are too crowded, why not try some with the same thing in every corner (like the planet express logo) just an idea.

I was actually experimenting with the PE logo, but I couldn't really get it to look cool, so I went with unique things for each one.

And I guess I could do a shippy one, or two.

i really like the background on the shippy one. I don't care much for the otter motiff cause i usually use bookmarks as a subtle way to advertise stuff i like, and unless the person who saw me with the bookmark saw that ep they would have no idea what it was. Again the universe background on it is amazing.

Thanks for the praise. I am actually planning on doing the kiss scene from the same episode, which should be a little less subtle.

I am also open to any suggestions as to other bookmarks any of you may want to see.

You should even make a Fancy one, not just a rectangle. Maybe a rectangle base, but then the cutout outline from an avy, or character. Sure you'll force whomever likes it to cut it out w/ an exacto knife. but It'd look cool to have venus' avy, or even on like mine outcroped from your current reading. If I explained it horribly, its cuz I got a freaking hang over.

.. I didn't ask you for a completely reasonable excuse, I asked you to get busy..

Thats an interesting idea maddoc3d, I think I will experement with that, but I don't promise any results, or at least any good ones.

I will try to attend to all of your requests as soon as I finish my Geopolitics essay on Sudan.

I was actually going to do a scary door one, but I couldn't get it to look right, any suggestions?

I do really like the "Drink Slurm" idea though.

Hey Venus, what color do you want the background to be for the Sting bookmark?

similar to the one you have for the otter. With pretty nebulas and stuff. Try to stick to a green/blue/purple color pallet for the background cause i'm not a big fan of red/orange/yellow.

So you want it to open up into space? I can do that. Should have it done sometime soon.

@Sal- That seems like a good idea, though I don't know what you mean when you say [door]. Do you want the scary door opening, then below it, the scary door flying through space like it does in the intro?
