View Full Version : Gan's signatures :3

05-02-2007, 01:23 AM
Erh... Could not find my old signature thread so mind as well start a new one :3

Been without a computer for about 1 month and kinda lost the touch on GFX, but gotten a bit back into photoshop now.

Anyway... Trying to develop a new style for myself combining spatter, displace and smudge.

: : :

C&C please.

05-02-2007, 01:47 AM
I like the smudge effect you worked hard on these two signatures. The first one is a bit dark though, but all in all, these signatures are impressive :D

Great work

05-02-2007, 02:00 AM
hmmm... they're great! the first one is dark though.. but its great.
continue the good work! :p

05-02-2007, 02:58 AM
Simply to say, i like the dark one. Nice effects there ^^ hope i can see more of your works

Smudge effects are awesome, but somtimes it can be hard to see the text properly, so you had to make it a little bright or something. I love the second siggy! Lovely, there are so many uses of rich gold, yellow, red and orange. Just love it.

05-05-2007, 10:18 AM
Thank you :3
I like the dark one best myself, although I screwed it up a bit with putting the lightsource at the wrong spot.

Anyway... Next is a John Frusciante sig that I made for Masali.


C&C please.

05-05-2007, 11:20 AM

hmm the signatures r good could have more effects but stil good

05-21-2007, 01:00 PM
Depends on what you mean with "effects" as that is a wide area, so if you could go a bit deeper on that.

Some new sigs~

: : :
: : :

C&C please :3

(Oh yes, 10 points to who guesses what movie the two pirates are from XD)

05-21-2007, 01:10 PM
Oh God, thats from that pr0n movie, isnt it?
The sigs came out great, though Ive never really liked the "partial" border.
I dunno, I just kinda feel like I can pick it up and dump all the graphics out from the open sides, lol. BUUUUUT, thats just me being nit-picky.

05-21-2007, 05:53 PM
ooo lemme guess Pirates Of The Caribbean XD lol

lol anyway you did and awesome job on the 3 siggys but i must say i like the last one. it's hmmm very "Naughty" XD lol anyway good job again

05-26-2007, 06:48 PM
the first one in the ninth post is soo adorable... I like your other works too... nice and neat ;)

06-02-2007, 07:40 PM
Ahahaha :3
10 points for Maroo~ x3

Anyway... thx for the comments :3
And I simply love my widescreen borders, I dunno why but they seem to work on everything I make x3

Two new sigs...

: : :

C&C please!

06-04-2007, 05:52 PM
ok im liking the blend effects in your frank castle sig
the only thing i don't like is the cloud-like part on the side
u couldv'e made that a bit larger and blending into that yellow the bg

06-04-2007, 06:22 PM
Your sigs are pretty awesome. I mean im not much on realistic sigs, but you seem to pull them off very nicely. Great job. :D

06-24-2007, 08:05 PM
Ty :3
Yeah, the cloud got a bit big, a little to much lighting made the area dull >.<

Anyway... New stuff :3

06-28-2007, 05:45 PM
Alooooooooooha X]

Sky's set = adorable.
Colours, blending..tone is great,
though the text seems a lil fuzzy o.O.

Bikini lady is very cool
though under her chest...I have other words
but yah...think of the younger ones..
damn..this is hard..her..pillows!
It seems really..weird x3

Haruhi XD
Awesome <3

Sam Fisher...yes, I remember Stikkie's..
How do we put it nicely? Over it x3
The background rocks, as per usual x3
I like the placing of the text but the 'Sam Fisher'
seems fuzzy.

Gan, what can I say really? x3
Y'know..apart from...-steals toaster-

06-28-2007, 05:49 PM
wow more nice sigs. :) Your really good with effects. I wish i was as good but -sigh- im not. i like the color effects to also the text matches nicely with all of them. Nice work.

Mira Kaiba
06-30-2007, 05:59 PM
Woo, cool siggies. I love the effects you use to make the images blend with the background. You're lighting is really good too, and the blending is awesome. I like the way you place your text too. My fav is the one for Slifer San. Great work! ^^

07-05-2007, 08:12 AM
Wow! I just totally love your sigs!!!

I love the effects you placed and the quality is amazing. Although sometimes, there's a bit too much light, it's overall GREAT!!!

I'll be seeing more of your works soon! I can't wait to see more!

07-09-2007, 09:39 AM
Hm...this is rather strange...
I know that I was posting here...stupid firefox >.<

Anyway,your sigs are awesome,and beautiful in each way I see them...
They are all well balanced,backgrounds are quite awesome and effects...
They're blast^^
I love them...
You should post here your work more often,lol...
Keep 'em coming...

07-09-2007, 10:54 AM
Great sigs. I like how some look like they were drawn. Good work on the colors too.

07-16-2007, 09:54 PM
Thank ya'll :3
Yeah, I go a bit overboard with the lighting sometimes which results in my sigs almost being completely white or get big white spots >.<
I'll try to work on it.

Anyway... New work.

Experimenting with balls (took me like 2 hours to figure out how to do them >.<).
: : :
Another more dirty style I've tried.
Hard to find images that gives it a nice outcome.
: : :
My new black&white style.
: : :
: : :
2 where I experiment a bit further on it.
: : :

C&C please :3

07-17-2007, 11:57 AM
I love the 1st and 4th ones.. really spiffy. The black and white effect really suits it well :3
On the 1st sig, the purple color in the middle kinda ruins it, if you are going to add color, why not add it more consistently or something. Well that's just my opinion, your art is really awesome.
Keep up the good work and hope to see more from you! ^^

07-17-2007, 03:49 PM
Nice sigs. Not to many people can pull off black and white siggies but i think you do it very nicely. My favorite is the first one. I like how the whole sig is black and white then you added that one splash of color. Nice work.

07-17-2007, 05:33 PM
As usual,your sigs are impressive...
I'm absolute fan of 1st,3rd,4th and 5th sig,effect are very nice,and they are very well balanced...
On 1st,bubbles are great,and that purple light is awesome...
Keep up the great work!
NOTE:I am really grateful for creating set for me ^_^

08-23-2007, 06:06 PM
Thank you all :3
Glad you liked the set Hama ^^ (you already know that though xP).
I've already answered to your critique via reps a long time ago x3

Anyway... My PS is currently out of buisness but hopefully back soon :3
(It's because I'm moving and I've formatted my comp etc...)

But here is some stuff I did before everything broke down :3

A request for Ms.Pop (I'm very please with the ava).
: : :
: : :
: : :
: : :
Collab with Wonderwice :3
: : :
: : :

I'll try to have a new style for you when I get back :3

08-23-2007, 06:12 PM
cool stuff!im not reali a big fan of this kind of style (when it comes to sigs i prefer the happy vibrant ones.^^) but im liking what im seeing here.hehe.keep it up!^^

08-24-2007, 03:59 AM
Your sigs are always amazing...
I'm absolute fan of black & white stuff,and how you're doing them...
I'm amazed...
I'm absolutely in love with Ljungblut and Shagrath ones,but the rest are awesome too...
Keep 'em comming...when you can...

Mira Kaiba
08-26-2007, 10:47 PM
Cool sigs - I like the Shagrath one best, but the avvy for Ms.Pop is awesome! I love your style with the black and white because it's so different than what people usually expect from a sig. More when you can! ^^

09-07-2007, 01:24 PM
Your signatures are good. I would have to say my particular favorite was the Punisher. I didn't like the one above the punisher though, guess I should have watched The Omen. B&W sigs look good also. I'm not good at giving out criticism, only know what appeals to me.

09-21-2007, 03:52 PM
Thank ya'll for still bothering checking out my stuff, even though I've repeated myself a lot lately x3
Well... I've not been able to make anything now for a loooong while because of various reasons including my photoshop being lost ++
But now I seem to be back in buisness and I present to you...

: : :
: : :

C&C please :3
(The second version I've lowered the settings a bit on the top gradient filter)
(And yes, I've fallen in love with this char xD)

Oh yes... I know there are some people out there that I've promised some stuff.
I'll try to get to it this weekend :3
Thank you for your patience!

09-21-2007, 04:49 PM
Only 2 pages!? WUT!? We want more D:
I think the newest sig you made is really cool (though I think the character looks a bit... special) and I like the whatever-it-is on the bottom. Makes the signature looks less dull (not that any of your sigs does XD) and I can't see the difference well between first and second version... ANYWAY! Keep up your great work!

11-01-2007, 12:46 PM
Thankies :3
Some new stuff if anyone cares anymore xP

A request:
: : :
SotW entry:
: : :
Random sig just because I like the pic xP
: : :
Was bored and attempted some old school C4D... I suck at it now, just like before xD
: : :
Random avas (yes, they're meant to be 70x70 xP):
: : :
: : :

(Of Montreal vocalist, Otep vocalist and Sawyer <33)
C&C is appreaciated :3

11-02-2007, 04:14 AM
Wow! From your last post, you have sooo many new stuff. I think I'll just choose two siggies and an avy to comment on.


First sig: It's very cool, Gan! I just love the way you chose the fonts on all three of the above. The effects were well blended and I love the great quality but most of all, I can't forget to say that it's super realistic than what most graphics seem to be. (Some graphics, though using real-life photos, look all flat and dead!)

Second Sig: I like the way how you did the BG. It's all mixed up which make it look more... holloweenish?!?? Good quality and all the other basics in graphic-making whatsoever.

Avy: 70x70, huh? Though small, it does have good text effects and it can be read. The color goes well with the "theme" and all. It's all great! Keep it up, Gandizzl!

11-02-2007, 04:46 AM
As I promised to, I'll comment on your latest post, desu :3. I must set aside my hate for MCR, but I like the left side of the first sig. Always had a weak for that..brush-ish look xP The red lights look a little off but other than that it's not as bad as you say xP SotW entry is fancypants, maybe a tad hyper.

The Killers sig; aw, it's so cute! Only thing I don't like is the grey.. blob in the right corner. Other than that I love it, the colors, the background, the blending, awesometastic X3 I know you disagree, but I like the C4D XD It's sparkly. It feels a little empty though.

From the avas, I adore the first one the most. It has a warm feeling, and it's just plain sexy xP I like the Otep one too. x3 Keep up the grand work, I will soon -demand/force/theaten you to- nicely ask you for a sig, probably :3

11-03-2007, 01:17 PM
Thank you, you two :3
The reason they are 70x70 is because we have that size of icons on a site I upload my graphics :3
The blob on The Killers sig was a poor attempt to create some depth xP

A set I made for Wonderwice today.
It's the vocalist for the band Kamelot.

: : :

C&C please :3

11-06-2007, 12:00 PM
Muuuhh, my sexy set~ xD Yes yes, comment desu. {Oh, and ofcourse many thank yooou's, again, for it :3} I -lovesqueeladore- love the sig, not just because it's Khan, but just because it blends fantabulous, background is splendid and everything just seems right. The right side is fancy, it looks bubbly~ *__* {Wiii, Buuuubblleees~} And sparkly. Fancypantstastic. The av is good, simple but sexy. (God, I sound like a fangirl now xD)

11-06-2007, 12:33 PM

I like this one. The lightning is a bit strong, but the compo and the depth is not bad. Remove those purple lines, they look awkward imo. The text is not bad either.


11-06-2007, 03:09 PM
I failed to notice updates >.<
Anywho,this is good in some hand,I love massive replies XD
NOTE: These are my opinions,and I'll be honest with you...
Now,let's take a look:

~ post 32...
~ Hmmm *thinks hard* ...I would have to go with 3rd version,the darkest one,since it's all black & white ,I love that kind ^_^
Background is good,and coloring rocks...
Also,on 3rd version it looks like she's in some cave or something,and light comes from the upper side...
I love the effect..

~ post 43...
~ Uuuu,I love the first one,looking somewhat nice and sexy...not much,but it it does,till some point...
Again,I like the chosen colors,and the balance of sides if perfect...
Nothing much more to say about it...

~ Oh,sudden change of style...I really haven't seen much of your anime sigs,so yeah...It just wouldn't be me if I don't comment it right here and right now!
Let's see...
I just love the mixed background,and there is just something that makes character perfectly fitting in this one...dunno what...
Light effect is pretty catchy too,but there is one thing that I dislike:
The borders around the character...

~ Wee,another black & white one,gotta love 'em...
Now,here the bg is bothering me a bit,for it's somewhat strange looking with the effect of light,also on the character,light creates lines that I don't like that much...

~ I actually like this one,it's simple but good...I love the character,and again,sig is quite balanced,and that's very appreciated...
Only thing that bothers me is "SF" in right corner,kinda doesn't really fit with that sudden color change...but don't let it bother you,it's good as it is...

~ post 37...
ROY KAHN!!!! <333333
Now,comment time!!
I love the background,it's really good looking with those effects...reminds me of something,but dunno what >.<
Anywho,Kahn's pose is really good here,that serious look makes this set even more adorable...
The borders may been somewhat wider than usual,but it's ok,don't worry about it...

There...my comments aren't much helpful I know,but wth.
Overall,I love your stuff,so keep 'em coming XD

Mira Kaiba
11-06-2007, 08:19 PM
Ohh, nice siggies! I especially liked the first MCR sig - the background is super-awesome! The second one is nice too, though I think the lighting kind of fades out the character a little too much. But I like the background. The avvies are great! I luff your coloring on the first one. The Kahn set is awesome - the light on the siggy rules. XD

11-16-2007, 06:52 PM
Thank ya'll :3
I was quite pleased with the Khan sig myself, as it looked like it would turn out really horrible when I was making it, but then something happened xD

Yeah, I thought about dropping the lines, but the sig looked so empty then.

Hmmm... The Killers sig, I'm not really sure what I was doing xP
It was like... the heat of the moment and something weird happened xD
Yeah, the SF thing... I felt I need some sort of text, but no matter what I tried it looked... wrong, and for some reason it ended with that.

I really didn't like the MCR sig I did, but I've still gotten a lot of positive feedback on it xD

Anyway... Some new stuff, mostly icons since I don't have a lot of time on my hands nowadays.

: : :

C&C pl0x :3

11-19-2007, 05:41 PM
Ah,the fresh new stuff...
Let's take a look at 'em:

~ I love the sig...it reminds me of something,but dunno why...sisters...
Anywho,I like the outcome of it,it really has a nice feeling to it..it's somewhat warm...
Yeah,I bet I sounds weird,but the sig really is heartwarming,at least for me...
I also like the simplicity,mhm...

As for the icons/avatars,very good work...
And since I suck when it comes on commenting avatars,I can only say:
Good work,my favorite would be 1st one,no world for tomorrow..
Also,Claudia 2nd one is pretty catchy too...

12-24-2007, 05:59 PM
Thank you, Hama :3

Been a long time since I updated this thread.
But I haven't been so productive lately because school takes about 12-14 hours of every day.
But here's some stuff :3

: : :
: : :
: : :
: : :
: : :

C&C is always appreciated :3

12-24-2007, 06:43 PM
I feel so 1upped when I look at your work xDD

All of them look really good, I myself utilize splatter, smudge, displacement, a lot in my works and to be honest you make it work so much better than I do ^___^; Just watch out with overdoing some effects like in your Muse sig above, you got a bit too happy. Overall, I'm totally digging your stuff.

I would be like, in love, if you did a collab with meh. x3

01-11-2008, 08:12 PM
My thread is so dead ;________;

Well, thank you :3
Yeah, the Muse tag got kinda raped xD
And I would love doing a collab, just send me a PM whenever you got time :3

This'll most likely be some of the last work I'll bother posting here since no one really comments <____<
But a huge thanks to those who do, C&C is always welcome.


So again I ask; C&C please!

01-12-2008, 09:49 AM
For some reason, I thought it looked better on a light background xP (On DT, where I first saw it~) Anyhooooww...

I like the sig, it's very eyecatching. Blending was the first thing I noticed.. Yeah. The background on the right is very nice, the big clean spatter on the left side looks a little mini tad too smooth. But it's not disturbing or something, so that's good. Text matches well athough the block on top of it looks off.. but nice. Not sure how to explain it. xD

01-12-2008, 10:13 AM
That's some nice work there.

01-24-2008, 12:21 PM
My thread is so dead ;________;

This'll most likely be some of the last work I'll bother posting here since no one really comments <____<
But a huge thanks to those who do, C&C is always welcome.

Seems so indeed...you would have my comments too,but I wasn't home for more than month,and over there everything except .jpg cannot be displayed for some strange reason <____<;;;

Anywho,on to comments:

~ post 44:
First one,the Matt Bellamy is quite good...I find those brown lines a bit awkward,but it's good as it is...
I really like the bg effect,and character placement is well chosen,for it seems like he's coming straight out of bg...

2nd one...ah,someone's been watching 300 XD
I really like this one,it's dark bg,with nice effects,and also character is looking scary...
I like the placement of lightning,looking very nice from that spot...
It's almost as he's inside some dark cave,while only one ray of light comes inside...

~ pikachu one...lol...never expected you to use pokemon for something XD
Well,what can I say...looking nice,with all the coloring around...sorry for such a lame comment...

~ stikkers one is amazing...the whole flow of the sig is awesome,and the balance is great...no unnecessary effects,and the character really fits into sig...very nice one,though I think the borders shouldn't be as white as they are...because upper one kinda doesn't fit by my opinion,and the contrast from the whole sig is to big...

~ xmas one is pretty darn amazing...
Easy to the eyes,and very cute..I especially find interesting those blue lights,kinda cool...
Anyhow,the sig itself has a nice feeling to it...
Bg is very nice,and combined with character gives sig of extreme beauty...
Really,and I mean really good...

~ post 46
I like this one...
It's kinda differetn from what you're used to create...
The bg seems like ground,so that makes me assume that she's lying on the ground,listening to music...
Effect of the bg is catchy,but I'm confused about the part around the upper part of head (where the neck should be),kinda doesn't fit with the rest of the sig...?
Dunno,maybe it's just me seeing it like that...
I especially like the border on this one,for it matches the theme really good...
Font is catchy,though I think you should remove those two sqares from the letters,seems kinda...off..?

01-24-2008, 03:55 PM
Heyy there ^^ I don't believe I've commented in this gallery before but admittedly I really adore your work. I can easily pick your sigs out on the forums before reading the "sig made by gan" or whatnot, everything you do is so original. Your style never ceases to amaze either ^^ Anywho;

I'll just go ahead and comment on your latest one as I don't really have time to pick and choose. First off I like how the gal is upside down in the pic, that sometimes itself gets negativity but I like it because it gives a diff perspective. The sig though doesn't seem to connect with your usual patterns, but it's still pretty. The blending is really smooth and I like the text especially, it flows so well with the bg. Even the block over it while standoffish I think it looks neat, not something you see often and it adds a bit of spice. Altogether as usual good work ^_^

Maybe if you're up to it you could do a request for me sometime? I'd appreciate it =D

01-26-2008, 08:30 PM
i am here to revive your thread!!! bwahahaha >D
O_O *slaps self for not ever visiting* gannnn ;_; your work is amazing!!! i see that in your sigs you love putting smudges, very cute^^ i thought that the sisters siggy is really cute.
i dig your work sooo much!!! they flow well and stand out, soo beautiful ;_;
now...you should really make a tut. i seriously need to learn from you x3
