Hey! Oh! Let’s Go!

 

Here’s to another update! I have quite a few goodies for you today, but before I move on that there have been a few upgrades on Firebender. For starters we are now running on WordPress 3.3.1 which means more features and faster posting- and it’s good to say that life just go a little bit easier. Also, there were a few more design tweaks with the layout, you can know browse through all of the characters on the sidebar menu. I’m still working on a script that will allow you to search for a character within a specific graphic category (this might take me a while). Onto the new additions and graphics!

Hard time finding all the seasons of Avatar?

Look no further! You can watch all three seasons of Avatar: the Last Airbender on Firebender. Over the last week, I’ve added all of the episodes from Book 2: Earth Season 2 and Book 3: Fire Season 3 for your enjoyment. All of the episodes are hosted on Nick.com but have been collected together and embedded on Firebender for your convenience. If you encounter any broken links or problems please shot me an email so that I can fix the problem.

Still looking pretty with new graphics

Laforeze and I have a lovely batch of graphics for you that featuring Avatar: the Last Airbender and the Legend of Korra. Just a heads up if you want to keep up to date with the latest graphic additions subscribe to our RSS feed. Onto the graphics:

  • 1 new signature featuring by Laforeze Aang, Sokka, and Katara
  • 1 new transparent render featuring Korra and Naga
  • 3 new wallpapers featuring Avatar: the Last Airbender & Legend of Korra

– Princess of China – features Ozai and Ursa
– Legend of Korra – Metalbender Cops
– Shake it Out – featuring Korra & Amon

I’m heading back to college next week for the start of the spring semester. This semester will be a bit harder than last’s because I’m taking mainly math, communication, and computer science courses. If I can I will try to update regularly, otherwise expect an update once a month until April. Time will go by fast and before we know it summer will be on the horizon and Korra will be premiering. Cheers!

 

Let me go over this for you (again)

We are the designers behind everything you see on Firebender, and without us none of this would not exist. We design graphics and layouts for your personal use and enjoyment therefore credit should be given to the rightful designer. Frankly, it frustrates me to see my Korra Wallpaper modified into web layouts and other graphics without giving proper credit to me or Firebender (see exhibit A). If you use the graphics and give proper credit then you are fine, and I thank you for doing that. We  have spent countless hours creating these graphics, so please show your respect and give proper credit. And never remove the Firebender watermarks on the graphics.

Called Out in the Dark

Firebender under went a few modifications and renovations this past week, I apologize for any inconvenience you might have experienced in accessing the site. There might be a few more changes made in the next couple of days so the site might look a little messy. Amongst the new features are a new tagboard, optimized search engine, the reintroduction of Music bender (located at the last tab of the footer), and lightbox.

Confirmed release date for Korra & Promise Review

For once Nickelodeon has not left us in the dark. According to Nickelodeon’s twitter page The Legend of Korra will be making a debut this year in the fall! If any more light is shed on it be sure to check back here for the latest news and press releases. As well, the first volume of The Promise has been reviewed by The Outhouse and can be read here.

Graphic Additions

Two new signatures featuring Katara and Ozai have been posted, I will design more signatures later on this week. As well, LaForeze has added a beautiful new wallpaper featuring Aang and Jeong Jeong. I am currently working on web layouts but they will not be posted for a while.

Affiliation & Staff Position is open

Firebender has three affiliate spots open. Just fill out the contact form or leave a message in either the tagboard or in the comments. Please note that only high quality. Avatar: the Last Airbender/Legend of Korra website will be accepted.

I’m looking for another Avatar graphic designers who would like to share their work on Firebender while still retaining full credit and authority over their work. There are a few requirements for these positions:

  • the graphics must be designed in either Adobe Photoshop, Paintshop Pro, etc. (anything aside from MS Paint)

If you’re interested just fill out the contact form with your name, email address, examples of your work, and a very brief description of your experience with designing. Though please keep this in the mind, I’m looking for designers who will add new work at least once a month. If you have an questions feel free to send me an email or leave behind a comment.

 

December Nights and Season Brights

 

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! These past few weeks have been hectic, I finished my college finals last week and flew home about a week ago, but I spent this week buying gifts. Now that things have settled down, I can give you new graphics. I have a good sized update for you and what any other way to celebrate the holidays with new graphics? I uploaded two new wallpapers and a new transparent render. There will be another update next week with a couple of new web layouts for you to use. I hope you enjoy your holiday!
