Here is my side of the story. Believe didn't have a poster on 911. I checked out their website and saw they didn't have one. I had an hour to spare, so I decided to multi task and work on a graphic for them.
A few weeks ago I asked Tim if he had a picture I could use. He said to pull one off of his FB page. I hate pulling poster pictures off of FB, as they are usually crummy resolution. However, I cropped it and made it look pretty decent. That took about 10 minutes.
Then I realized I didn't even have a Believe logo. Some companies get upset if you don't use their actual logo. I created a new company logo from scratch, and tried to make it look similar. That took about 30 minutes. The hardest part was trying to make it look like the old logo.
I have a pictures of Epic, Lince, and Santana... but I really didn't have many people from their roster. Thus, I decided to make a generic poster instead of one that listed off each match. The Chasyn picture that I had was one of him flexing (double arm bicep pose). Since that pose didn't seem to match the others, I decided to crop a new picture of Chasyn from this picture that I found online: http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-uKcaT2OeyIA/T ... e_1-10.jpg
That took another 10 minutes.
I had recently worked on a picture of Jason Hanley. I took this a year ago:
I spent about 15 minutes making him look more "muscular," like in this picture. (Below) I probably started that project the day before. When making a picture like this, you basically have to trace the outline of the person to crop them out of their background.
Since I have been trying improve the look of my posters recently, I went to a few websites and downloaded some lighting effects. I spent 5 or 10 minutes on that.
I looked for a picture of Ray Beez online, but all I found was stuff like this:
It doesn't quite match the others, and I decided not to include him for now. I need to get a pic from him.
This is what I found of JD Amazing. I figured it would work, but it wasn't preferred since he has no legs. I figured I would wait to get a matching picture of Beez and update the poster with a slight variation of just the main event.
Then I worked on the text, which was pulled from 911. I adjusted some colors and added some filters. Last but not least, I added a background of a Dojo. (Believe uses that term a lot.) I added a layer of shading around the edges, uploaded the image, and posted it in various places online.
Immediately Hanley complained that he didn't look good. He said his face looked odd without facial hair. I understand his complaint.
Then Amazing complained about not being on the poster. " @LivingLegendLZ @TeamVisionDojo i can tell by the flyer this show sucks... F#ck you @911WrestlingCom " I am not certain if he has a gimmick where he Tweets like the Iron Sheik, but the tweets didn't upset me too much. He sent a bunch of similar Tweets like that. I have no idea if he was trying to be funny or what.
The folks at Believe were very thankful and nice. They sent me a logo, a picture of Beez, and a picture of Amazing to help with future posters. I was already upset with myself because I didn't add Epic. I meant to add him. I feel like I don't add him to enough posters and things. He has never complained to me. I appreciate that.
On the same day, I had several other "wrestlers" make complaints about their pictures, posters, videos, etc.
