View Full Version : Gandizzl's testing area

02-10-2006, 02:56 PM
Realized I maybe should get a testing area.
More to come, but this far I'm only putting up this since I have a cold and was planning on heading to bed.



02-10-2006, 02:59 PM
O.O -drools-
Wow, Gandizzl, you're talented =3
It's lovely!
keep on practicing and become even better...{if possible O.O}
p.s hope you get better soon then I guess O.O

02-16-2006, 02:47 PM
A sig I made last night when I was a little bored.


I was thinking about having some sort of border on it, but I kind of already got some lines going there. Maybe a 3 pixel border could work..?

02-16-2006, 03:35 PM
they are really good i hope you post more and get better soon!

02-17-2006, 12:30 AM
WTF?!!is this the first time you do it or one of the many u have done?O__O...damn...all of it looks awesome!!><...I like the last sig u made....that was awesome!!almost as good as my neji one...;__;

02-17-2006, 03:26 AM
Impressive banners and avatars seems great detail to it Gandizzl. Well nice effort there. :cool:

02-17-2006, 02:51 PM
Thank you all for kind words.


A valentines day type sig that I never got to finish before the flu got me.
So since I didn't really have anything to do now, I finished it.
More pink ^^

02-18-2006, 06:25 PM
I was looking at Just_a_Girl's gallery and got a bit inspired.





The quote on the last one is taken from "Ayreon - Day Eight: School" and says for those that can't see the text clearly on the sig (Yeah, it's quite small, I know):
"Seeking to find,
deep in the trauma as it leaves you behind
Bleeding it gone
into the profit of the competition
Loving today,
all of the feelings are they going away
Ending it now,
I'd rather hear about the where and the how"

Maybe I should've put a type of border on that one also, but the text is kind of in the way. Which one is the better one and what can I do to improve it?

02-19-2006, 08:10 AM
Inspired by my testing area? =P lol
The first one, font is good, borders could be more..uhh..outcoming?
The second one, now are the borders good, but the text looks a bit...misplaced, I liked it better in the first way
The third one, The text looks a bit too much, but they're all well done ^______^
Great work!

02-20-2006, 10:45 AM
Your testing area is a very inspiring place. It's so much different, and it really gets the sig engine going :p

I think I improved the Sasuke one *looks down at sig*

Well, anyway...
Here is some old stuff:




And a banner thing I made for a WoW guild thing we had going on my server:

02-20-2006, 08:48 PM
thats very good made these sigs and avis Gandizzl-chan! ^^

02-21-2006, 12:34 PM
Well, that's cool to hear =3
Ahhh, Love the Sasuke sig now <3
It's really good!
I love the [old] metalhead set, it's really good!

02-21-2006, 01:56 PM
Thank you ^^

I was bored today again so I thought I would check out a little tutorial. Apparently boredom combined with a bit bad tutorial and "Static-X - Otsegolectric [Demo Edition]" can make some lousy stuff :p
Last time I try a tutorial...


And a little something for my fans that I know is out there somewhere, now you can show it to the world (or at least this forum XD ):


02-21-2006, 02:06 PM
Ah, Gandizzl-san ^^
With the last signature there, the image looks a bit...I don't know, you could make it more outcoming? O.o
And the Gan-fan, I putted it in my signature <3 Also with this one, the image could be more outcoming or something but I do love it <3
edit : Hope I'm not too harsh O.O At least it's not meant to be! o.O;;

02-21-2006, 02:23 PM
Haha, no.
Please keep on giving me criticism, I need so I can do better in the future :)
Both of these were just something where I tried to play with some tutorials.
The sig failed miserably, so I don't think I will work more on it :p
I tried to get the char more outcomming in the fan thing (you're actually using it O.o, thanks a lot ^^ )


The main problem is that I'm very sloppy when it comes to saving >.<
And I needed to flatten the image so I could do something to it, and have no save file of it before I merged it together -.-

And J.A.G., you should also make a fan button thingy ^^

02-21-2006, 02:31 PM
Ah, it's better like that!
Ofcourse I putted it on! It's pretty, and I'm a fan, it's small and it doesn't take such a huge space as some does O.o So, why not? <3

edit: invading time =)
-cough- ...Noooooo.... ;___; I wanted to make some pretty...I failed O.o;;
button =)

02-24-2006, 12:52 PM
I've tried to be creative again...
Did it work? Not sure...



I must seem like I'm a little Narutard with these Naruto related sig/avas >.<
(Well, I'm not for your information. Just a lot of good pics XD)



The Rikku Ava seems to have gotten a bit blurry or is my sight just getting bad?

.:Tsukimi Ayana:.
02-24-2006, 01:28 PM
Hey Gandizzl!I love your sets,they're soo beautiful!Expecially your current one.You're certainly are getting better.Wouldn't mind one day if I asked for you to make a set for me ^^

02-24-2006, 01:28 PM
I love your style, there very good.

02-24-2006, 02:38 PM
Hiya Gandizzl-san ^^
here I am =.= [again]
I love the one of Ino [that's her name right? O_o]
It's well done, great use of colors ^^
And indeed, the Rikku av is a bit blurry, as far as I can see,
but the sig is amazing ^___________^
Keep up the great work!

02-25-2006, 07:51 AM
Very nice Gan! Keep up the awesome work ^.^

02-25-2006, 07:15 PM
Aaaaw ^^
Thank you all for your nice words!
You make me blush :p
It makes me feel welcome in the testing forum.

It's weird how "Of Montreal - Penelope" can get you into Photoshop mood (probably because I was ps'ing the day Essex sent me the song).
The music is just as funky as ping and got me going on a pink JAG Fan button


Hope you like it hun ^.^
Long live pink!
"Penelope shoot the apple off my head I need to go to the store to get some sleep. Because I've run out of sleep."

Then suddenly; "Nevermore - Bittersweet Feast" started playing and that's a bit harder and beastial so I started on a set for Aya :)



"They feast on the meat in bittersweet denial
And swallow the blood of poisoned truths
They pick at the meat, their bittersweet feast"

Hope this is of your liking ^.^

Yeah yeah, the borders are boring but I'm no good with borders T_T

02-27-2006, 01:17 PM
-gasp- ... O_o Ahhwwiie, the fan-button is so pretty! <3
Borders are good, they fit the image perfectly..
I soo love Haruka <3 Thank you so much Gan! ^____^
The Aya-set..I don't think the borders are boring
They're not really outstanding, but that doesn't have to, does it?
The background nicely matches with the image,
and that was my comment for this time ^.~
Hope to see more soon <3:laugh:

The borders are not boring silly :p I like them.It's been atleast over a year and a half since I've actually used a dark themed based set in a while.Thank you sooo soo sooooo much!I'm gonna use it as soon as I wear out this current set,which is going to be tomorrow ^^ I <3 it ^^

02-27-2006, 02:06 PM
they're really nice..i need to make my da buy a program i need so i can start making banners too >< the program i have now sucks

02-27-2006, 04:15 PM
Wow. Very good. Astonishing. I may very well have to get you to make me a sig. lol.

Blood Angel
02-27-2006, 04:41 PM
Very nice work.

02-27-2006, 06:17 PM
Aaaaw... Thanks y'all!
Everyone is just too nice :)
Glad you guys like what I made for you *feels touched*

I found out that I don't have made a lot of blue things.
Sooooo... I decided to make Sachiko-Chan's set blue ^^



Same style as I've used nowadays, and of course same border... >.<
Hope you like it Sachiko!

02-27-2006, 07:57 PM
Sugoi... *gasps* You're really talented Gandizzl! ^^ You make absolutely gorgeus avatars and sigs, they are very impressive, I love all of 'em! ^^ Keep up the good work, okay?

02-27-2006, 09:23 PM
Very nice kep up the good work....

02-28-2006, 08:48 AM
-gasp- your last work is really amazing Gan O_o
Sachiko's set....wow, it's so cool ...
almost no comment...the only thing I could mention is that the font could be more..euhh..bold? O_o or something, so it's more -forgot word- O_o ok...that was a weird comment =.=
Great work! =D

02-28-2006, 09:03 AM
Thank you *bows*
Yah, the font is a bit thin, tried with strokes and such but it just didn't look good so just stayed with it like this.

Here is a thing I made a while ago.
NOTE: I have NOT taken the picture, I've just played with it.
Props to whoever took the pic.

It's the guitarist from Rammstein; Richard Kruspe :)

Here is original:

Wow! Thanks!

02-28-2006, 11:23 AM
Glad that you like it Sachiko-Chan :)

I've finally managed to make something for myself again.
Tried a new style.
Not sure if I like it or not... I feel it's a bit much.



02-28-2006, 11:58 AM
Awesomeness ^______^
Your name could be some more outstanding,
but it doesn't bother, so
this is just a wonderful work =3

02-28-2006, 06:44 PM
Ty :)
Yes, but I kind of like the name like it is, it mixes with the rest.

Tried one more of these, this time with the vocalist from Rammstein; Till Lindemann

http://img480.imageshack.us/img480/8113/tilllindemann6bp.th.jpg (http://img480.imageshack.us/my.php?image=tilllindemann6bp.jpg)

It's not really any good, but it's just some experimenting I've been doing.
I liked the one with Richard Kruspe better myself.

+He smirks+

Not bad. I really like all of you work. They are really nice. I would really like to see more. By the way, if it's no trouble, I was wondering if you could make me a set.
If yes, thanks, and I really appreciate it.
If no, no problem then.

~Shino Amanou.

03-03-2006, 02:29 PM
Thank you :)
Sorry, the set took some time.
Have been busy with a wallpaper lately.



Hope you like it!

03-03-2006, 02:41 PM
hey...not bad....ur sig are really good...I gotta admit....they are almost as good as DK'z and Tai'z one....u have ur own style...the one u are using is good..I really like that...but the one u made for shino isn't that good...I don't really like it that much...that sig reminds me of Aya'z sig....last time...the mixing colour style...don't really like that style...I don't have a problem with that but I just don't like it that much..><...hey can u make me one too?>.>...just wanna see what u can do!!xD

03-03-2006, 02:47 PM
Gan, that last set is good O_o
Noooozzz! Don't you dare to say 'no' =P
it just is ok! =P
no more comments on that one ^^

03-03-2006, 05:58 PM
To be honest, I didn't put a lot of work into the last set
I had just finished a wallpaper that turned out horrible and wasn't really in PS mood...
I'm still really not in PS mood, so I'll make you something better later...



Even tried to make a version with a lousy tech border...


Bah... Enjoy you little perfectionist... :p

03-04-2006, 01:00 AM
Ha I knew it!!o__o....and I'm not a perfectionist........hell no...Mr.Intelligent comment would be far worse then mine....plus I'm just being honest..>.>...anyway the one with techno border didn't come out that good huh?X_x...but the sig that u made is nice...the version one that is...XD....the ava is nice but to me u could like make my name shorter....like Rina or Kuru...cause from what I see....the words are a little cram up...><...Oo...just found out something....the wideness of ur sig'z are almost the same saiz of J.A.G'z sig'z....last time...o__o...a little too big...><...other then that....the sig'z u made are awesome!!^_^

03-04-2006, 01:16 AM
Nice Set you made for Kurumirina!

03-04-2006, 02:07 AM
Wow, those are amazing, very nice

03-04-2006, 07:58 AM
I'm glad you criticize since it seems like no one else does :p
People here are too nice to do so >.<


03-04-2006, 08:03 AM
Oh-ho-ho ^^
it's a good set, that is,
but the borders look...dunno how to say it...
I guess they would look very different when the borders
would be darker... ^^ or something O_o

03-04-2006, 09:15 AM
the pink one in the middle with a girl and gun rox! O_O

03-04-2006, 09:51 AM
lol, welp I'll give some criticizing too..^^;;; Just for you to get better.

The set you made for Rina:

- The sig is a bit grainy so you should smooth it out with a Guassian Blur of .5
O.o;; oh and did you colorize it with the color balance? 'Cuz that can happen a lot.

- The pink is nice, but try to give it less magenta and make it mulit-colored.

- Darken your brushes,,its kind of hard to see it..^^;

- The Text is Smexy..lol I like that type of text.

The Avy:

lol I Rina likes his avy to have his nickname on it.

- besides the name he likes the size is good and the quality too. Nice and simple (like Rina.. LAMO)

The 2nd Set:

- hmm...the tech border will look nicer if it wasn't pink..maybe a dark blue. (once the bg is a diff.color)

- and for that sig, give some tech brushes or a tech style.

- Thats all I think O.O;;

Phew...Anyways, besides that, you're pretty good and getting there. ^__^

Hope I wasn't mean to ya..T^T

03-04-2006, 01:14 PM
lol I think Rina likes his avy to have his nickname on it.

- besides the name he likes the size is good and the quality too. Nice and simple (like Rina.. LAMO)

OMFG!!that is such a lie!!o__o...I got an ava with my full name in FFV ok?o__o...I do not like it full cause it is long that all...>_>...ohh yeah when is ur forum gonna open again anyway?T_T....and u like calling me plain and simple don't you?-__-"...the last sig u made me...u said the same thing....well I got no more to comment bout my sig...hehe...goin to use it for FFV...=P

03-06-2006, 01:09 PM
Thank y'all.
Finally some criticizing ^^
I may work more on the Rina set later... I'm a bit lazy :p

Well, anyway...
I just had to make this quick thing:


03-06-2006, 01:16 PM
<3 oh Gan, it's so pretty!

No more comment...I don't have comments..O_o

03-06-2006, 01:43 PM
hahahaha!!OMG....TAWIMS changing spree really got to you huh?xD...maybe you should make a club of food lovers...O_o...Tai made a great job in it....and if u need to do some changing kinkle spree...just ask me...>.>...I got tons of money in my bank...<.<...anyway nice kinkle club button?o_o...seriously I have no words for it....

03-06-2006, 01:47 PM
Haha, yeah. TAWIMS went crazy so I thought why not.
Btw it says "Kinkie club" just that every second letter i big so it becomes "KiNkIe club" :p

03-06-2006, 03:59 PM
Wow. You are so awsome. Keep it up!

03-06-2006, 11:19 PM
lmao! so you figured the food thing was me? >_< obivious i know..lol.. I was just bored and I had lots of money in the bank. So yea. ^^ But yanno, I'm happy to make a banner for the so called club XP And I can make the food lovers banner...XDDD I just up and made banner yesterday night. Hope the name changing doesnt irk you guys..^^;;

And nice banner for the Kinkie club..lmao

03-07-2006, 10:31 AM
Ty ^^
Still wondering how TAWIMS ever came up with "Teh KiNkIe club" O.o
It seems it's the next big thing; clubs :p

Anyway... todays creation is a pink'ish set request for JAG ^^





Hope you like it ^^

03-07-2006, 10:36 AM
oohhhwwiiee...how cute <3
Ty SO much Gan! -huggles-
I'm so gonna use it <3

03-07-2006, 10:36 AM
kinkie club...intersting concept
anyway, I like the set you made for jag! Nicely done.
Another one of my favs was the set for Kurumirina....the one with the border effects was extremly nice...hope to see more soon

Lolz... I came up with it, out of the blue, Gan... And what a pretty set... Even if it's a bit too pink. >_< At least it's not the horribly bright pink ones that burn my eyes out. By the by, it has wonderful text.

03-08-2006, 09:59 AM
TAWIMS, blame me for the pinkyness, it was my request, a pink sig, yup ^^
how did you come up with the idea of the Kinkie club? It's now...taking over the AF O_o
Gan, can't wait to see your next work <3

03-08-2006, 11:57 AM
Wow, some fantastic sigs on this testing thread (I'm spanning out ^_^ Becoming a fan of loads of great sig makers it seems!!) anyways lol The set for Rina is amazing, very nice and the sigs for JAG rawk ^_^ Amazing work here. I shall check back regularly ^_^

03-08-2006, 12:54 PM
Ty *bows* ^^
You gotta feel the pink TAWIMS.

There is two words I should not connect to me anymore "Advance Pixelstretch".
Can make a lot of cool sigs this way, but this was just not my thing.
This was a really miserable try at that technique...
One of the reason it turned out this bad was because of the moronic me using this render as it's mainly white >.<


Probably last time I try this...

03-08-2006, 02:01 PM
I had to make a new set to forget the last horrible sig >.<



03-08-2006, 02:43 PM
Nice set ^_^ I love the bg, it matches the stock really well, fantastic job on it. Love the stock ^_^ and the font is a nice pick. Great job on the avy too ^_^ keep it up!

03-09-2006, 02:16 AM
hmm... that Advance Pixelstretch sig is pretty good, I wouldn't call it a horrible sig. ^^; you just have to fix that biiig white space in the bg. O.o; but besides that, its pretty good. ^_^

Now that brown sig you made is kind of dark, and the render looks good, blend it a bit more.

to make it a bit ligther, put a new layer over the whole sig, execpt the render layer, and place the layer mode to 'softlight'. Then press 'd' to put it back to your default colors (black and white). Then grab your gradient tool and place it anyways you like it until you think its good. ^^;

Thats pretty much all the final touches you need on your sig. Which you did a nice job on.

03-09-2006, 09:51 AM
Ty ^^
I'll edit the set sig a bit later.
The reason the big white area is on the advance pixelstretch sig is because you make the background with your stock and I didn't know that it would turn out that white.

Some months back I tried a manipulation tutorial at school, but thougt I had lost the result.
Today I discovered I hadn't lost it ^^

03-10-2006, 10:11 AM
Ty ^^
Yeah, I like the blue better myself, fits better.

I fixed a bit on the sig for the last set I made (now new "Tai Edition" :p)!


03-10-2006, 10:19 AM
Oh Gan <33 I love it, so pretty!
She stands out, the font is cute, the bg is good blended ^^
If I were you I would use it O_o it's better then the set I made

03-10-2006, 10:26 AM
Very nicely done...the only thing I dont like about it are her gloves...I just dont like them...but thats not your fault...you didnt draw her =)

03-10-2006, 11:03 AM
very good gan, keep it up :D

03-10-2006, 04:24 PM
Ty *bows*
I think the glove looks bad cuz I've put a 1px stroke on her >.<
It's not really any hard lines on her so a sudden thick line kind of ruined it.
May edit it later and put up a V3... but now I'm to tired after making this:





Was listening to "Evergrey - When The Walls Go Down" and it's pretty touching so that's where that is from ^^

03-10-2006, 10:45 PM
Very nice :)
awsome sigs

03-11-2006, 12:34 AM
Thats awesome

03-11-2006, 05:35 AM
O_O OMG! Gan! -falls of chair-
that last set is amazing ... <33
you really have to use it...
it's so pretty <3
border fits the image, as well as the background does ^^
love the font...and the text, heh heh <3

03-11-2006, 05:44 PM
Thanx y'all!
Glad you liked you liked it.

Set request from Qeeun (I didn't know that you had already gotten it done before I made it).
Never made a whole pic sig before, never really find anything interesting to do with it.





03-11-2006, 11:51 PM
Thank's a Bundle!
the sig is awsome

03-12-2006, 08:30 AM
Glad you like it :)

New set!




03-12-2006, 08:38 AM
<3 cute!
like the first version of the sig better ^^
is the border dotty? O_o
the only thing that doesn't look perfect to me =P
for the rest it's a good one ^^

03-12-2006, 08:45 AM
it looks awesome i like the second version of it. its like one of those grafitti things.lol

03-12-2006, 09:06 AM
Glad you like it :)

New set!



Nice new set. O.o and is that Sakura (not sure) from...hmm..forgot the game..but shes from an old game that I luve to play. XP

You blended the render really well.

And the text is good, execpt I can't really read the other small ones. Try not to give it a white stroke or glow. XP

03-12-2006, 10:55 AM
Nice new sets O.O

I love your new set, the stock goes really well with the bg <3
The set for Qeeun looks really good... great job.

The newest set looks great. Love the bg and the stock looks good. I like the second sig best, looks more finished with the text and so on

Keep up the great work!

03-12-2006, 11:32 AM
Ty ^^
Yeah, it's Sakura from Street Fighter <33
I like the first best myself, the white stroke just didn't come out right.

New set again!
I've always wanted to make one of these



03-12-2006, 11:34 AM
Pwetty <33
a cut-off, huh? ^^
I LOVE the borders -huggles borders- O.o
hmm..not much time for comment >.< that's it for now! O_o

It may hold me a bit back, but that's another thing...




03-12-2006, 05:16 PM
Ooo two new sets ^_^I like the street fighter set, looks really finished and well done :laugh:
The newest set, I love the stock lol. It goes really well with the bg. Nice font choice -thumbs up-
Keep 'em coming ^_^

03-12-2006, 05:23 PM
I give you mad props on the backgrounds, nice work on all of'em. I don't like all the blocky things you put on'em though. And your typos could use some work. Also, you shuld try blending the stocks in with the bgs. Overall, pretty sweet.

03-13-2006, 11:48 AM
Ty ^^
I've tried to play a with with the font on this next thing like Zantetsuken suggested.


I'm guessing y'all are thinking: "Now who is a TAWIMS fan?"
I am, and I'm damn proud of it! ^^

03-13-2006, 12:44 PM
hey, I know that image <33
Like the font, but the image looks a bit...O_o dunno, you might make it a bit more outstanding? O_o
I'm bad in explaining ^^"
Love the bg though, it's cute <33
If I can I'll use it...O_o if my sig allows me to, and there won't be the evil scrolly O_o

03-13-2006, 01:38 PM
Nice fan banner there ^_^ I'm a TAWIMS fan!! and also proud haha. I'd use it but if I used all of the banners for people I'm a fan of I'd have no room for my sig O.O I love it, the stock looks good lol

...GA~AAAAnnnnnnnNNnn.. *Whines* Why do you have to do that, huh? .__. You don't have to, y'know! Eh, anyways... I appreciate it lots, really. And as always, I like the font. xD

03-13-2006, 07:41 PM
the fan banner is sooo cute..-huggles it-

03-15-2006, 12:55 AM
Very impressive! Your skills were good as everyone. Nice well effort at there. ^_^

03-16-2006, 05:20 PM
Thx ^^
Of course I had to make a TAWIMS fan button.

Well, it's been some time since I've posted a set now.
Here goes nothing:



Tried a new type of pixels border, new blending mode for stock and new text effect.
I don't feel like the font fits...
I'm pretty satisfied with the stock blending though.

03-16-2006, 06:10 PM
I like the new set.
its very well done

03-16-2006, 11:41 PM
oo nice new set. The bg looks good and the font looks good ^_^ interesting blending lol. Great job.

03-17-2006, 12:11 PM
Ooooohhhwww...Gan, I so love it! Pretty ^^
Yeah, the font might be the only thing to notice..
You can change it if you don''t like it ;)
But...I so love it xD

03-17-2006, 07:11 PM
Thankiez ^^

Cypress Hill in Spanish is extremely good y'all know?
Tried to make a smudge set which I'm no good at ^^;



03-17-2006, 07:16 PM
very interesting new sig, overall i like it but it seems like its missing something...

03-17-2006, 08:40 PM
hey Gan can you make me a sig..you don't have to do it right now but when ever you get a chance please..^^

03-17-2006, 10:05 PM
The set is extremely good. Though the smudge looks kinda out of it, it really brings out hte character's face alot more.Plus purple is my fav color so I gotta love the set u made Gandizzl^_^ Keep it up!

03-18-2006, 08:53 AM
O_____O -gasp- ...-speachless-
Says 'nough? ^.~
I love it...<33

03-18-2006, 11:35 AM
Thx y'all!
Yeah... I think it's not missing anything, rather that the border is too visible.

Request for Animeglobe ^^



I really hated that first set there when I was done with it so I made another, better one.



Hope you like at least one of them :)

03-18-2006, 11:37 AM

I used Bman's brushes 2. Will try them again for a set later since they were very nice.
These are in a bit more convenient size :)
(I really liked VGCats number 191 you see :p)

: : :

Commentz pliX! (They've faded lately T_T)

03-25-2006, 08:59 PM
Well I must comment on your work for its something new I havent seen before...

Your blending technique is far more unique than I have seen...and most of your concepts have a grungy dark feel to them, which is something of much interest to me...thank you for commenting on my brushes and from seeing what you can do...I think my 3rd set would add a whole new look to your style...

Well im going to say a few things over. Fantastic concepts...wonderful blends, great color schemes...and all together you are a fine Graphics artist

03-25-2006, 09:10 PM
your last set is very well blended, the backgrounds match perfectly
the fan banners are so cute ^_^

03-26-2006, 04:35 AM
I love the new fan button :3
The second (newest) set must've cost a lot of time, eh?
It's so pretty ^^
I like the second fan button more, it's not so...ehh, crowded? O_o
Don't know the word =P
T_T Now I don't have room for the X-masclub button....-snivel-
Oh well, fan button is more important ^^

03-26-2006, 06:34 AM
the look really good gandizz keep it up :D

03-26-2006, 07:34 AM

ooo GAN heres a sig for you as a gift for making me one i hope you realy like i just got the hang of making them. ^_^

I've used your 3 brush set a bit on both of themn BMan, it contains some really cool brushes ^^

Comment it! ^^

Batman's Assistant
03-26-2006, 02:31 PM
wow. love them all! i wish i could do that good of a job! ><
<3 all of your sigs and avvy! keep up the good work

03-27-2006, 01:21 AM
Thank you ^^

I don't usually post in my testing thread without having anything to show, but I didn't like the bad rep I got last night.
I don't really mind if people bad rep me, but it was the rep comment I did not like.
If you look back at the post I did 24. March (the one with the blue and orange/black sets).
Well, the whimp who did not dear leaving his/her name, said that I had "stolen pics from Maru".

Let me make this clear: These pics are not stolen!
These are renders I found on forums I'm member of, where people share their renders.

Making sigs is one of the purposes people put stock renders up on the web.
So if you see multiple people with same stock in their sigs, they probably have gotten it of the net.
I've seen multiple sigs here where there are used renders I also have on my computer.
So this is probably the same Maru has done, unless you are the one cutting it then putting it up on the web.
I just happened to use the same render because it looks good.

Thank you for your time.

03-27-2006, 06:14 AM
Gan if i have to i'll find who did it and bash them in the head for ya ^_^ its just that some people can be soo dumb ..sadly anyway i think your siggys are awesome keep it up

03-27-2006, 10:47 AM
Heh, thx :p

Well... life will go on...
A new set ^^



Ryu <33

03-27-2006, 08:06 PM
Gan, I'm so sorry that someone did that to you...I hate ignorant people. Anyway, your new work is amazing! How did you do the zoom up thing? It looks great!

03-28-2006, 06:09 AM
looks great gan ^^

03-28-2006, 09:58 AM
Thank you ^^

The boxes are pretty simpel made.
It's a bit hard to explain though since I'm o good at explaining :p
You take your Rectangular Marquee Tool and select the part of your render or whatever you want to do this on.
You then copy and paste that part in a new layer.
You then pull out the Rectangular Marquee Tool again and select the part you just copied.
You then just put a 1pixel stroke around it and then your done.
I can make a tutorial when I have some time ^^

New set:

: : :

Comments please ^^

03-28-2006, 10:35 AM
Yes, a tut would be nice...I'm a bit retarted when it comes to photoshop....anyway, the new set is very sexy! I also like how your name looks like its on fire! Kinda makes it seem like shes so hot, your name caught fire!

03-28-2006, 10:42 AM
<3 I love your newest set ^^
Love the image (have that one myself too O_o)
My sigs can't be compared with yours, they're amazing ^^

Though, you've made better backgrounds then this one..! ^^
Other then that, I love the flaming font <3
Oh.. >.< I'm not too harsh, ehh? O_o

03-28-2006, 04:57 PM
Thank you ^^

I made my first tutorial today.
It's not for a whole sig but if you've seen some of my latest work (like the set I'm using now), I use some fancy scan box thingy thangs :p
I made a new sig when I first was at making a tut.


Okey, now for the tut!

Part 1
http://img139.imageshack.us/img139/9030/boxtutpart11bm.th.jpg (http://img139.imageshack.us/my.php?image=boxtutpart11bm.jpg)

Part 2
http://img70.imageshack.us/img70/1081/tutpart25bi.th.jpg (http://img70.imageshack.us/my.php?image=tutpart25bi.jpg)

That is basically all you need to know to make the boxes.
If you want more "effects" and such, you can look at the bonus parts I made

Bonus Part 1
http://img145.imageshack.us/img145/1462/bonuspart19su.th.jpg (http://img145.imageshack.us/my.php?image=bonuspart19su.jpg)

Bonus Part 2
http://img145.imageshack.us/img145/4082/bonuspart25xx.th.jpg (http://img145.imageshack.us/my.php?image=bonuspart25xx.jpg)

Bonus Part 3
http://img134.imageshack.us/img134/3728/bonuspart36af.th.jpg (http://img134.imageshack.us/my.php?image=bonuspart36af.jpg)

I hope not the bonus parts are messed up.
It was first one whole long thing, but then I had to cut it up to be able to upload it so please tell me if there seems like there is missing a part or something.

Please comment ^^

03-28-2006, 05:14 PM
That was an amazing tut! And it seems so easy! Thankies <3333
btw...the sig you made for the tut came out mighty nice!

03-29-2006, 11:00 AM
Np ^^
Glad you liked it.
Every part should be fixed and okey now.

Well, a new set:

03-29-2006, 11:16 AM

03-29-2006, 02:45 PM
Oooh i like the black and white effect gandizz:)

03-29-2006, 06:57 PM

Thank you all :3

Made some new sets!
Been quite busy lately, but I had some time today ^^
I'm starting to go out of ideas, and it's a bit boring to be repeating myself all the time >.<

: : :
: : :

The text is taken from "Seigmen - Döderlein"
It means "Turning a pearl to a stone, döderlein"
Have no idea what "Döderlein" is in english :p

: : :

Comments please ^^

04-02-2006, 01:14 PM

Batman's Assistant
04-02-2006, 01:27 PM

04-04-2006, 10:54 AM
Thank you :3

Well, I've made another set where I tried a bit different background style.
Used some sparkle brushes.

: : :
: : :

Come one, come all!

04-04-2006, 10:56 AM

04-04-2006, 02:36 PM
OH my muffin :3 what a pretty sparkly set there!

T_T too tired for more comment...O.o

04-04-2006, 03:42 PM
very good gan, thats al i have to say :D *twitche ears*

04-06-2006, 09:12 AM
Thank you :3

Quit school early today so made some sets for JaG when I got home ^^
First time I try making one of these lens flare style sigs.

: : :

Second time I try pixel stretch.
This time with a better stock and no ugly mosaic.

: : :

Hope you like them ^^

Comments please!
They seem to be rare nowadays T_T

04-06-2006, 09:14 AM
They look very good gan, i really like the dark one :p

04-06-2006, 09:19 AM
I love love love love love them :3
Thank you hun ^_____^

04-06-2006, 01:26 PM
Ooh good sigs <3 Those for JaG are really nice.
1st one ~ I like the shattered glass kinda effect there, but I find the stock a bit too sharp. Good job on the avy too.

2nd sig ~ Ah I love the bg for this sig ^____^ it looks great.

(but I love your current set the most lol)

04-07-2006, 02:01 PM
very impressive

04-07-2006, 02:50 PM
Thank you ^^
Glad you liked em JaG.
I got to agree I like the set I'm using now myself DK :3
Yeah, the sharpening of the first one ended up a bit weird.
I jumped a bit back and forth with it, first it was not sharp at all, then too sharp and so I ended up on this one which I also realize it, render in particualary, ended up a bit too sharp.

Well, made a new set!
Love Magna Carta stocks, they are so cool.
Have no idea what kind of game Magna Carta is though :p

: : :

04-07-2006, 02:52 PM
Wow, Gan...such pretty set :3
Love the background...it's so myummy xP
hmm..short on comments today >.<"

04-07-2006, 11:27 PM
Lol the game magna carta is weird X___x

Hmm I see you use filters quite alot ne x] this sig is good, blending's just nice not too much but maybe the outline of your name could be a little softer (it might look better =3)
as for the avy, maybe you could try out some kinda styles @_____@ (I had no idea what I'm saying) well, erm... yeah that's it xD

04-08-2006, 04:19 AM
Its been a long while since I got visited at the new forum used to stay there. Well, I'd say the new set is very impressive. Not bad. *smile*

04-08-2006, 03:01 PM
Thanks :3
Hmmm... I'm no good with text X.x
Me combined with text is like a fight between Superman and Spiderman; nothing good comes out of it (That means Spider-Man will be killed, and that's no good) >.<
Maybe I should check out Magna Carta, I like weird stuff XP

Well, some new sets again.
I have a Street Fighter sig fetish :p

Cammy ^^

Yah... Erm... My third set with Ryu... I like him :3
"Hjernen er alene" is translated into "The Brain Is Alone"
Dunno why I put it there :p
Comments will be appreciated ^^

04-08-2006, 03:02 PM
ver cute gandizz

04-08-2006, 03:07 PM
That's a lot of sets there:3

From your last post, I like em all, though I don't see much difference the 1th and the 4th, same goes for the 2th and the 3th O.o But that's probably because I'm not really awake now xP
From the previous post, the background and font are pretty, but the girl scares me O.o;;
But that's not something you can help xP

04-08-2006, 05:28 PM
oooo thats alot of sets you got there anyway i like the last one and the second to last its totally awesome anyway i have a set for you to try out i really hope you like. you don't have to try it right away just when you get a chance ^_^
