Welcome to my Portfolio!
On this forum you'll be able to find all my past GFX works ranging from profile layouts, Forum sets and cards
How did I get into making GFX ?
I joined MAL on March, 2018. I used this site for the sole purpose of keeping track of my watched anime.
At the start of 2019 I received a random friend request, I still have no clue how that person found me as I was a ghost on this website.
I became interested in the community of MAL and started to become more active.
So I started clicking on random peoples profile and then one day I stumbled upon a complete GFX layout.
I Then discovered that there were quite a few individuals out there who had a profile like that and I wanted to have an awesome layout like them too of course.
Being me I didn't want to ask anyone else to make a layout for me as it seemed a lot of work to put unto a random individual. So I decided to make one myself.
I have used Adobe Photoshop before in the past (2016) to make some silly photoshops of my classmates and some memes, so my go to software would be Adobe PS of course as I was quite familiar with the software. I tried to use GIMP for my first profile layout but it didn't feel that intuitive to me and I struggled quite a bit.
I was pretty excited to make a profile GFX layout of my own, I downloaded Adobe PS in the first week of January 2019 and began immediately working on my first profile layout.
My first layout (See 1st Layout) was "finished" in an hour and it looked so basic and bland, that's one of the reasons why I didn't finish the layout.
I came to the realization that it won't be that easy to make a layout and that I still had a lot to learn. I also noticed that I'm not a very creative person and that it would take a lot of looking at reference material to make an profile layout.
By the 3rd week of January 2019 I made a profile layout that I was happy with. It took me several tries (Attempt 2 || Attempt 3 || Attempt 4) to end up at a profile layout that I liked (First Finished Profile).
And so the GFX journey began...
Thanks for reading and thanks for stopping by ^^

About the layout
Well this profile layout is themed around "Altair" from Re:creators.
I watched that that show end December 2018, and I really liked the character Altair from it, I especially liked how she looked. So she just had to be the centerpiece for my first layout.
I looked at a lot of layouts shared on Deviantart for inspiration, the top part of the layout is inspired on "Omikami - Rin Tohsaka layout". It was a very slow progress as I was still pretty inexperienced with Adobe PS and as mentioned before I'm not a very creative person.
Time it took to make this layout 20 - 30 hours (this is an estimate it's probably more)
A lot of that time was used on figuring out how the layout would look and making my own renders (a lot of them weren't even used, so I lost a few hours there)

~ Profile layout made by Scev for UT33's Birthday - All resources used belong to their rightful owners ~
I installed Adobe After Effects 3rd week of January 2019 and I needed a testbed to try out a profile with custom made GIFS.
It was meant to be a quick profile but I didn't take into account that my creativity is quite lacking and slow. I also didn't account for the extra issues the custom GIFS would create.
But I was committed so I had to finish the profile.
Overall I'm quite happy with the result, it isn't my best work but it looks decent.
Time it took to make this layout 15 - 20 hours
Layout finished on February, 08, 2019
Well I was planning on making a complete profile layout, but I've been and still am as of writing this very busy with university.
A lot of people seem to have this kind clean and simplistic profile layout and I like it quite a lot, so I made one myself as I wanted a new profile look.
Time it took to make this layout around 2 hours
