I make videos on the youtube.
And with this intricate plan I can now outsource YOU for slave labor!

Example#1    Example#2   Example#3

See those examples up there^? That's what I'm looking for. I've always wanted different end templates when the video had a different theme. Example#1 was originally created right before I uploaded a video about Farcry3 - that's a pretty Jungle game, so it fit. Example#1 is also my favorite. It's simple and incorporates bold outlines to separate it from the videos playing in each box(though maybe too simple since I made it). Example#2 has that problem where so much is going on it can clash and distract a little bit, but not as bad as #3. That's just a mess I lazily made out of existing pictures. I feel shame, maybe if I would have drawn stuff specifically for the template and had the color scheme and style match.... Don't be Example#3.

Here is the template I use to create those: TEMPLATE

That is 1920x1080, important size for making a 16:9 ratio video! Don't mess that up, buddy. If you want to go the extra mile though, upscale it to an even higher 16:9 resolution. 1920x1080 isn't going to be the HD standard forever, it's nearly on its way out already.
Those lines are very precise and any art should just slightly overlap the borders for safety. Example#2 actually has an issue I only just realized where between the 2 smaller video spots, it has blank space. That's bad! The left edge of the grey area WILL be a video playing. The accented part at the bottom left is optional, but if the design is to have any added detail that's the place for it to go.
The food template also used to be a lot BRIGHTER and friendlier, but again that will typically contrast very poorly with less saturated videos playing.
Should be saved as highest quality .png with transparency or .psd

Which designs will I choose?
There isn't really a limit or a specific design I'm looking for, but anything created should meet the quality standards I have for my videos. I'd rather keep on using the same few I'm okay with than use something that I feel falls short. If you don't think you can do greater than or equal to the examples well...sorry for being a meanie. I do not want anything TOO specific. Example3 is over the top TF2, and I don't want another with that theme or anything else specific of another game/movie/whatever. Something like Example#1's jungle theme is much more generic and capable of seeing more use.

What do I get for making one?
Shamefully, I was upfront from the start that this was slave labor. All I can offer is gratitude - and I'm making this journal explaining all of this more so just because I think there probably are a few people who'd just be happy to contribute their time to this, so I'd like to give them that opportunity. My videos have always been very personal without help from anybody, but example#2 was actually made by ashelang, and it'd be cool to have some overlays made by people who like my junk. :)

If you have any questions, ask!

I love ster's junk. No wait, that's also really sexual. I've been in the mood for Star ever since the Lob Slob video. Damn it, Jerma!

Ster_ confirmed taking advantage of his subs -2014.
No but in all seriousness it'd be nice of you if you credited the artist in the video description or at the end of the video, it'd be a win-win situation; promotion for us, art for you.
Im happy this doesnt have a deadline, hopefully i'll find some time to throw art at you q:

2 questions:

1. Will you give credit in the video or drawing (by this I mean our username in the corner)?

2. Is there a deadline to submit?
ramenhairr Featured By Owner May 28, 2014
Sorry didn't see that you answered question 2 already

i would but I'm too busy with other projects atm. But it's worth mentioning that it's my dream to animate/do promo work for you and your gaming gang, so I'll keep an eye out in the future. I've already sent you and Jerma fanart via tumblr back when I had some freetime.

I've seen probably 90% of your tumblr, if you ever have time let me know! There's no deadline on this particular thingy either
