Well, I don't make avatars O_o;

Anyway, my testing thread in the Testing forum is closed due to changes in forum layout and stuff, so I am opening this.

However don't expect major uploads constantly. I rarely use Photoshop these days except to play around with NVIDIA dds files for TrackMania, and since nobody plays that there isn't much point in uploading them for people

=P

I will post this sig I recently made. It's the most recent thing I made. It's not good, but it's not bad either.

http://i14.tinypic.com/2jdn7ty.png

The stock is a rendered image of a dragon someone made for a wallpaper on dA. I can't remember who it was that originally made the dragon render or who re-rendered it.

The background is an assortment of brushes made by ctzmfish, also on dA. If you want the brushset.... I will try to remember which set of his I used and give you them. XD.


If anybody wants me to make a sig I'm more than happy to skip out of racing [z]Cars clan members long enough to make a request sig so please, do ask ^_^ not only will I try it will help me improve AND keep in practice so I can make better things for you all.

(I'm hoping to take part in the next sig contest. lawls.)

I will try to post my most recent art in here once I find them. >.<

The first sig I make in a month and you guys love it O_o;

come on, there must be SOMETHING wrong with it, besides the bad text glow colour.

Not really, it's quite good xD

The only thing that bothers me are that compression artifacts on the dragon o_o;

The dragon has some crappy colors ... that's it

I didn't do anything to the dragon; it was already rendered. I just added a few effects onto it and stuff.

Maybe because it was a downscale from a 1024x768 wallpaper, that might be the problem. But I can't really see any issues with the colour of it, it was supposed to be fiery red/yellow. O_o

-note. I need to repost older sigs and stuff-

Torrent is amazing Negi. O_o;;;

anyway.

For those people that haven't seen my last Testing thread (which was rarely viewed anyway) here are the most recent (and best) works that I've done.

http://i11.tinypic.com/4cniipl.png
(I'm a fan of Linkin Park. lol. There IS an anime image of them in there somewhere.)

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v706/MacHawking/BelieveIt.png
(Naruto is annoying. Believe it.)

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v706/MacHawking/WolfwingSigTweak.png
(Old wolfdragon sig.)


Animated sigs

http://i11.tinypic.com/3z6ih5z.gif
(That was inspired by Hawk's old gif sig, which was ironically inspired by my avatar.)

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v706/MacHawking/b5cadabc.gif
(first animated sig, really. First attempt at neon-colours too, though I phail3d that miserably.)

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v706/MacHawking/TMN-sig.gif
(For TrackMania Nations, a game which I play regularly and am also one of the best players in. If anyone plays this, I'm in [z]Cars =P


sigs I did for requests

(Note, these are MAJORLY old, so they will suck pretty bad compared to my new work.)

http://i4.tinypic.com/2n807c8.png
(For an ex-mod on my site, ironically called 'Manhattan Project 2000', but isn't MP2K from here at all, actually he's a friend of mine offline.)

http://i89.photobucket.com/albums/k232/Mac_Requests/MuseSig.png
(I made this a long time ago for Trinity Muse. I can't remmeber if she's changed her username now, though.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v706/MacHawking/FerronDragonSig.png
(Actually, someone requested me to make this for myself. Back then my username on ACF was 'Moot'. lol. I might go back to it soon.

And a pointless sig here.

http://i2.tinypic.com/1zptvfp.png

It was inspired by Aifa Taikaro's 'Pervert Series'. I've only done three so far, because I ran out of funny pictures.I actually played with this a little. The words on the tank and the guy's shirt were put there by me. xD I think I got it good on that.

(I am also going to post the three wallpapers I have made.)

then it's a good idea to do something ;)Like what? What am I supposed to do to it?


very well done, i love them ^ ^ i bet i could make some cool sigs too if it wasnt for that im broke so i cant get photoshop -_-I got Photoshop CS2 for the grand total of $0.

Don't complain about how you're poor, I'm poorer I guarantee it. So if I got it for nothing surely you can as well.

And thanks all for the feedback. ^_^ I'm thinking of trying to get back into making sigs and stuff regularly again.

None of the above

hehe....your work is good, if not great, just to think of the Dragon Sig you first posted.
And those animated sigs...I love them (you know that Sig you rememberd who from whom inspired). And not to forget the hmm...-how should I call it?- The Linkin Park one.
Keep it up, fellow Kremlin fan~!

Oahahaahah. Haven't checked this thing in a while. x3
I totally love the Dragony sig. Although, like I told you on MSN, I dislike the text. It's too bright, but ok.
And lmfaoroffle @ Teh Modz. Ahah. I love it. And the.. I don't remmber how the texture was called. But, I love it.

So, keep it up, dear. <3

Awesome Mac. Good work you're doing.

This is the first sig I've made since the dragon one.

XD

I have some ideas for some sigs and even a wallpaper or two but I'm too lazy to make them; mainly lack of 'need', nothing to do with not wanting to as I love making stuff for people.

http://i15.tinypic.com/2wna5h5.png

a requested sig for Mugetsu. I did make an avvie but it's lost in transfer; it's on her account though.

Mugetsu
02-06-2007, 11:30 AM
Um..thats his account lol.

Thanks again for the sig. Its great. I also have some chores around the house that I need done. Interested??? XD

I'll pass on the chores, thanks. I'll keep it in mind though =P

It did me when I first saw it.

O_o;

I made this a while ago. A tweak on a sig someone once made me (made from scratch) for my friend on another website.

Wow. Its really pretty. Although it took me a minute to figure out what it was...lol. The text placement is good and the picture is really pretty. Great job!

Maaaaaaaaccc. ;___; You never talk to me anymore, for shame!

Anyway, I'll comment. Since I have nothing else to do. -Cough.-

So. The last sig.. Uh. It's, first of all, BLURRY. I can't make out what's on it. The text is interesting by itself, but it doesn't suit the sig and the placement is lousy. I like the Background, though. Especially near the edges.
Keep it up <3

o___0; Wow, the dragon one is quite good. Very nice actually >_> for your first sig you made in a month, you say.


And.... *Anger*... >/
You SO owe me a sig!!! *Threatens*

If you want me to make you a sig PM me with the details, Missy O_o

Keep it up <3That image was an 'emulation' of a sig that someone else had made me, and I had to use the blur tool just a tad because the effects I used made Neon Dragon turn all blocky with the contrast.

And you are right, I couldn't place the text and that annoys me even to this day.

and I don't talk because I don't start convos in MSN any more. Not after what happened with Meg...... >_>;
