Ely, absolutely fantastic wallpapers!
Visible text: Just my name, Mersynd. It's fine if it's big and stands out.
Armory link/Facial screenshot: http://us.battle.net/wow/en/characte...rsynd/advanced
Gear set: Same as armory - Challenge Mode Assassin set
Helm visible: Yes
Your pose: Similar to armory, general combat stance. Does not really matter too much, especially if it's just the top portion of the character.
General colour scheme: Similar color scheme to the armor. Gold and black, possibly very slight red details.
Any extras: Heavy emphasis on the smoke coming out of the helm and shoulders, if possible. Getting my weapons in is not important, unless it makes your idea work. The best thing about this would be the smoke, if it is possible to do it, so any stance or arrangement that would make it stand out works.

Edit: Armory seems to be slow on updating, see other links for actual set.
As much as it sucks sometimes for us artists, he is within his right to re-request.
We have to respect the rules and terms of this just as much as requesters do.
It's not like he's going around double PM'img people or being super rude and offensive....
and it's not like he didn't even use the sig that was made for him previously.
He simply just wanted it updated to show his new race/gear.
Edit: And honestly, I would change the cooldown rule. If someone asked to change a signature I made them a week later, I would be majorly insulted. 1 month would be better, imo. I race changed to goblin well over a year ago, and I'm still rocking a dwarf sig.
this right here.... in case you want it.
OT: if you really want Shy or another artist to do your request just PM me and I will unclaim it
Someone goes to a Woodworking website and starts browsing their forums. They see that there's a thread to request free pieces to be made by talented woodworkers. Wow, cool! So they request a coffee table with a light finish for their living room. Lo and behold, a woodworker claims the request and makes a beautiful piece. Later, this person changes their decor and suddenly they need a dark finish. So they make a request of the woodworker to stain it for them to a darker color, to which he obliges. Then, not 12 days later, this person suddenly shows up on the forums requesting a new coffee table to be made because they've changed their decor yet again, this time to a super-modern theme. The old one is beautiful, and they just love it, but it clearly will not fit in. I mean, they loved using that table for those 12 days! It wasn't like it went unused. It was seen and enjoyed by all for those 12 days. But now they just need another table, because the decor needs it.
Now, does that sound ok to you? It shouldn't. And it's basically the exact same thing as what you're doing now. Graphics designers get payed a lot of money for a reason. The fact that what we create here isn't physically tangible doesn't mean that it should hold any less value in your mind than something that is.
And i4ni, while I understand and respect your position in supporting him, I'm disappointed that you're willing to go along with behavior like this.
