I'm finally getting back into making sigs again, but I still need some advice, especially on this first sig. I like the image and background for the most part, but the color balance seems a bit off. Any suggestions?
:rolleyes:

Dizzy, thanks so much for the comment! Here's another one I did. I really like the background on the sig, but I think I may do a bit more work on the image. I may need to make it larger. Anyway, here it is. Please C&C!

Amazing signatures. I like them a lot. I suggest that you post more, spread your talent. ;]

Excellent job. I like it. Yes, I agree with you on the coloring.

Thanks for the comments Valentina and Sobriquet!
I have two more - one is a fixed version of the last sig, and the other is a new Megaman sig that I just finished. I like the way it turned out, except for the text, which I'm still working on.
Please C&C!

Wow! They're pretty! anyways
the first one : the color of the character is kinda purple.... but the BG is awesome! 9/10
the second one : the BG is awesome! the character position is a bit off... 7.8/10
the third one : I like it! but try to blend the colors more 8/10
the forth one : I like it! though the green part on megaman's chest makes it a bit strange... but still i like it! And the BG is Insane!! 9/10

Hope to see more!

~*Dizzy*~
05-20-2007, 01:25 AM
I love how you match the backgrounds with the pics. ^^
But, bits and pieces a little work, but not much. Just like with the color blending, but otherwise, its awesome.

.Lovebeat
05-20-2007, 04:35 AM
They look awesome! My favourite is the first one, definately <3 though the character is a bit too purple.
The rest are good imo, but I don't like the signature Fall away's background. The background itself is good, but in my opinion, I don't think the colour suits the render very well.
Hope to see some more work from you ^_^

UrusaiSevera
05-20-2007, 04:10 PM
Wow this looks really nice, the BGs are crazy....

but one thing.. the last two you see the BG through the character... with the first one this is not to obvious, but with megaman it's a bit to obvious, I would suggest making him a less transparant.... But still way better than my work *points below*

Aleyna
06-04-2007, 05:35 PM
falls is very well put together
i like the blending in with the image and the bg as well
the only part i don't like is the big blob-swear next to the falls away text, but other thne that it is a very good sig

Mira Kaiba
06-08-2007, 03:23 AM
Thanks so much for all your reviews!

UrusaiSevera, thanks for the tip on the backgrounds showing through the characters - I will work on fixing that.

I agree with you guys on the Falls Away one - I will work some more on that one - I'll probably end up redoing it, since it doesn't match that well.

Here's a new one of Urahara Kisuke from Bleach - I like the background...it seems to fit. If you have any tips or advice, please critique! :p

awesome sigs.^^ as for my comment...for ur urahara sig, it seems the word kisuke stands out.maybe change the font?just a suggestion.^^

Mira Kaiba
06-08-2007, 11:50 AM
Baka_Black, thanks for the critique. You're right - I was looking at the font a bit too, and I thought it stood out as well. I re-worked that part of the sig, and added a few minor changes in style and blending.

I have 2 versions of the sig now - one with "Kisuke" in green color, and one in an orange/brown color. I like the brown because it stands out a bit more and gives more depth to the sig. I think the green may blend in a bit too much.

Please C&C!

Mira Kaiba
06-09-2007, 11:17 PM
Thanks ever so much for the critique Suri!

Here's another two.

I did another one with Kakashi as an Anbu member, and one of Dark (thanks to Thornwillow for the extraction).
I've been working a lot with photoshop brushes and textures. They may look a bit crazy, but I think I'm getting the hang of them.

Please C&C! :p

First both signatures looks very beautifully.
But i like the first signatures more because of the colors.
The picture looks interesting and the background are not monotonously.
The second picture also beautifully and good but i like the first one very much....

No cause.....
I wait for next signautres from you because i like they very much

Thanks to Shodaime and Sobriquet for the nice comments! :p

Here's a set I did for Zero_X. I think it came pretty well. More coming soon! :) *edit* I have an updated version of the sig, but it is essentially the same, so I'm posting it instead of the other one.

Hey! I like the new set you made ^^ kinda grungy behind the character and also a bit futuristic ^^. though the left side looks a bit blank...
The "Fading away" sig : AWESOME!! I like the BG! The character really blends with the BG.

PS my 1000th post. Yahoo! ^^

MysticFairyDrmz
06-12-2007, 06:57 PM
I like your latest sig it looks really good. i like how you made the background. text is nice also. i cant seem to get any grid lines to work or look good on mine however it looks good on yours. Thats my favorite so far except the extraction looks blurred but it may suppose to look that way still an awesome sig. can't wait to see more :D

Suri
06-14-2007, 09:53 AM
oh i like it....i like the green one very much...it looks great....
the other one also looks good but i like the color of the green banner

pls make more....u make very good work


and the new set is very cute....

Mira Kaiba
06-14-2007, 09:22 PM
Hey, thanks so much for the comments!
@Unlimited - thanks for the advice - the final sig was moved over to the left so that it wasn't so empty on that side. Thanks! :)

@MysticFairyDrmz - thanks for the compliments! Yes, the render was kind of blurred - I will work on that.

@Suri - Thanks! I liked how the Urahara banner came out. I think I might do some more work on the second one.

New set of Temari from Naruto, it's a bit simpler, but I still like how it came out. Please C&C! :p

i like your recent sig. the background looks great. love the lines and the purple and the extraction with the fan looks good to. i like everything about it but the text. the white just seems to stand out to much and to me doesnt go to well but thats just my opinion but i still love the siggy and avi great job. can't wait to see more :p

Nespa
06-15-2007, 04:47 AM
they look very good but watch a bit for repeating with the same kind of backgrounds and play a bit with the fonts before you choose one. But there good :p

Suri
06-15-2007, 06:42 AM
i love naruto and i love this color and the girl.....
i like the background it's so different of all your other works.....
i just have one idee...play a littel bit with the frame, make other different frames...not the same frame every time so it wil be looks very great.....


i have a question....can u make me a set???pls

Mira Kaiba
06-15-2007, 04:31 PM
Thanks for the comments! Right now I'm working on a sig that's more vector than grunge and brushes, so I'm trying to vary my sigs more, just to change it up.

Also, thanks for the tip Suri. I'll work on my borders to give them variety. Text is kind of hard for me - I can never seem to find just the right one. I guess it's just practice, so I'll keep working on that. Thanks everyone! ;p

Suri, I'd be glad to make you a set, just tell me what you would like, or if you have a pic that you would like me to use, and I'll get on it right away! :p

Mira Kaiba
06-18-2007, 02:24 PM
Yay - new set that I did for Suri. ^^

I should have the vector sig up soon. I'm still playing around with it - making a vector that looks decent is harder than it seems, so plz by patient! ;)

Kiss of Death
06-18-2007, 03:40 PM
well... ummm..... i really like your set. quality is very good and i love the background... i like all your orks and i cant wait to see more (maybe i even ask for request)

MysticFairyDrmz
06-18-2007, 04:43 PM
love your new set Miss Mira :p colors are great. i love the background i wish i could get those lines to work but mine are never good enough. Love the background effects pretty much nothing negative i can say. love looking at your work. Can't wait to see more. :p

Mira Kaiba
06-19-2007, 12:24 AM
Wow, thanks for the super nice comments! ^.^ Yeah, the lines took some practice, but they're fun.

I finally finished the vector set, and it's of Kon from Bleach! ;p I couldn't resist the pic - it just seemed like a good image for a vector. This is my first try at vector, so plz C&C!

Mira Kaiba
06-27-2007, 01:59 PM
Thanks for the nice comments and critiques, especially on the vector one. I wasn't sure how that one was going to come out. ^^ I am reworking the one for Clawdia - you're right about it being difficult to read. Hopefully I will have it done soon.

I did a new set for someone on a gaming forum. Here it is! ^_^ Please C&C!

Soo it's been a while!!

There's to much to comment on and they all look very good, still watch out that your bg doesn't come through your character to much *points at the one you did for Clawdia... her arm and bust...though the bg is really nice*

My favorite is the one with "Fading away"... The background is supurb and the contrasting colors really bring out the character... Very Very Nicely Done !!!
And the one with the Bleach character is just Crazy Sick... I love it!!

Your entry for Wizzy's contest is miles better than Mine -_-" .. The best of luck on the contest !!

Keep up the grand work!!
~Uru

Thankies for the commment Uru! I've been working on my blending, which is why the Clawdia set was like that.

I've got a new set that I just did for Kawairshii hikari of Shikamaru and Temari- it came out really cool!! I love this pic especially. ^^ Please C&C - work can always be improved! Thanks.

Awesome! yea it did come out cool! I think it would be nicer if you sharpened it and add some lighting. But still its pretty awesome! The ava looks good too!

MysticFairyDrmz
07-01-2007, 03:47 PM
Wow Mira the Shika and Temari set is fantastic. I would have to say thats the best one yet. You are just improving day by day it seems like. I love it. The background is great. The whole sig is great. You worked hard i can tell and it turned out more then well. :p

Suri
07-04-2007, 03:09 PM
Wow....u make again a good job and the frames are better as before...i like it and i like the backround are very good....ur sets looks very good....

Mira Kaiba
07-06-2007, 05:23 PM
Thanks for the comments everyone! ;) I've been working on some photo manipulation stuff on the side - (might post it here later) but I managed to get a requested set done. This one was a bit hard because there was no clear character extraction that could be done - they blended into the background, so I used a lot of it. Still, I think the colors are really nice.

I was experimenting with sig sizes too, and I think I like the size of the Shika and Temari sig best, so I'll probably be making my sigs that size. Anyways, please C&C! ^^

Hey everyone, I'm finally back. I was on vacation all of last week, so I wasn't really able to get to a computer because I was camping. It was fun though. ^^
Thanks for all the comments from you guys! Anyway, here's a request from Dream Magician that I did. It's much smaller, and I think it looks nicer in this size.
I'm doing a new set for me ^^ so that should be done soon, hopefully. Please C&C!

07-17-2007, 09:10 AM
I like them!!! Cool!

You know, what I really like about your work is the BG and your way of blending. It's one thing I really am not good at and so I admire everyone else who can, especially those with a good and unique style.

I don't know with yours but I think it's great and I also love your entry for the July wallpaper contest. Good luck for it anyway!

Oh, yeah! Gotta say. Sometimes, your text goes a bit too small and so sometimes, I have a hard time reading. But, other than that, I think it's all fine!

Jagan Eye
07-17-2007, 04:11 PM
You are amazing at your sig works. I like the yugioh one and the bg is really nice. The fushigi yugi one has a great bg and its cute. Good job. I love your work.

MysticFairyDrmz
07-17-2007, 04:17 PM
Love the new sig and avie set. I think everytime i visit your thread they get better and better. Nothing really bad to say cause it looks good lol. Your wallpaper for the contest looks tons better then mine. But hey it was the first wallpaper i have ever in my life have made and it shows lol. Nice work as always Mira. :D

Petrol Gas
07-17-2007, 09:24 PM
They're all really good stuff so far, especially the set for the Wizzy contest. I really like how you use the lines for your backgrounds. The only thing I would even bother about is maybe Yu-Gi Oh! one looks a little blurry...

Korobi
07-17-2007, 10:10 PM
Your Fushigi Yugi set is awesome. Your Kon set has great colors and I like the effects. Nice.

07-18-2007, 04:22 PM
Thankies to everyone for all of the awesome comments!

@hatoko_hinata - thanks for the tip about the text. Sometimes it is a bit small - I'll work on that.

@mystic - I love your wall - its awesome, especially for being your first one. My first one was Aweful. Yours is really cool though! ^^

I finally finished a set for me! It's styled after the ShikaTemari one I did, but it's and Ichigo/Rukia one. ^^ Anyway, I did 2 versions of the ava, one with a border and one without. I kinda like the one without it better, but tell me what you think! C&C! ;)

Time to comment! On your latest one:

It's super great! I love the colors and the effects you added to it made it seem so... how should I say this... cool?!?!?! Yeah, basically, it's AMAZING!

Maybe this is just me, but maybe it's a bit too light in the left side of the siggy... but I guess that's just me.

Anyhow, you're sigs are still are great as ever! Keep it up!

EDIT: I forgot to mention! The text is very fine on this sig. But, below the Cinnamon Roll, is that ice cool? If it is, the I in ice and L in cool isn't very clear.

Pretty good sigs and great style.I love the cinnamon roll one its so good.Keep up the good work.

Mira Kaiba
07-26-2007, 01:54 AM
Thanks so much for all the comments and critiques! For the "ice cool" on the sig, it wasn't originally requested, so I made it really faded so that it was only partially there... but if Apathy wanted it darker I would have done it, cause it would look better with the i and l darker... ^^

Anyway, here's an ava of Urahara without text. Please critique! Also, I finally have a fan button! (Not that anyone will use it o_O) But just in case, I finally did one. This is my first one ever though, so if it should be resized or if you want an animated one, let me know! ^^

Thanks to everyone for the uber-nice comments! ^.^ I just finished another requested set for DreamMagician. It's a different style than I'm used to, but I think it came out well. The text was hard though, cause the set was so light that almost everything blended too much into it. But I like how it came out -- I used no brushes!! Yay! XD

Please C&C!

The new set is really cute!!!! I love it!!! The text in the avvy is sorta hard to read tho. And the Dream on in the siggy is hard to see and it doesn't seem to go along with it. But I love the bg and the color changes in the bg! Great job!! They are adorable.

I'm back once again!!!

On the dream magician set.

This time, I say it totally blends! The colors blend well with the stock and the lighting is good too. They have simple, but matching borders.

The text fits in as well. The font fits well with the theme. The folors make them visible enough to be read. Yes, the size isn't too bad either.

I love the effects on the avatars too. It gives more life to the character and that's what makes it good.

So, I guess that's all! I totally have nothing bad to say.

Ooohhhhh!!!! It's co cute Mira! I love the colors, they're bright and lively and they fit well with the image. The blending is nice, too.

I love the text placement. They fit well. You took the cookie?!?!:mad: Ehehehe! jokes! The light effect on the "shougo" text in the sig is very attractive but maybe it's a bit too much.(the light, i mean)

I don't find the avatar as attractive as the sig but it is made well. The text is simple but is nicely placed, and good choice of color.

The quality is good, so overall I give it a 9/10!!! sorry for always writing long comments when they're almost all too useless...:(

I'm here again!!!! Glad to nto annoy you with long comments! hehe...

For the Minako set:
The colors are so eyecatching!!! I love the smooth light it gives out. As usual, I love the bg!!!

The quality for the stcok is pretty good. The blend of colors match the image and the glow gives it more life.

Now for the text, I would say that the font color you chose for 'Princess Minako' was a good choice. The font is fine and the size is just right, not too big nor too small.

As for the text 'Your Site Goddess' it's not so good. But, it's still nice... maybe just a bit too small. The edges of the letters are not so smooth, too.

The avatar has nice effects and making it seem a bit dark gave good results. I love the style you used. You just always amaze me, Mira!

I guess it's a 9.5/10!!!! btw, I loved the avatars. Zabuza!!!! He seemed so deadly there... which I like.

I agree with the whole hunting for the image thing I had a hard time finiding one too.But yours is so good the quality and the extraction and it is very well blended.I like the bg because it doesnt overpower the image it subtle and good.The site goddess text could be a little smoother though and the avatar border...very creative^^.I hope you win good luck^_^

Hello Mira! Again, I'm back!

I really love your current set. (elementress)It has bright colors that fit well with the stock and has good quality. As usual, I love the BG.

But, just as I always do, I'll focus my comment on the latest set posted.

Good quality, yes. I love the style you used on this one. Everything matches up sooo well. The colors are fine but what I'm really shocked to see on this one is the great text!

Not only good placement, and font color, but depending on where you placed them, you did a pretty good job choosing the font.

The border is fine and everything else. Overall it must be a 99.99%! (sorry, I can never get myself to give perfect scores!)

Keep up the Graphics Mira ~!

Your latest one called "Dream Magician" looks really nice. The girl looks sweet and pretty. Loving the background by the way.

Ahh, an update finally. I've been lurking, :3 but no longer! I come bearing a set! I really liked the extract, so I decided to use it. I think the lighting might be a bit much, but I can always tone it down. I like the avvy - it's a little different than my others.

Hey, I just realized that it's still kind of orange! I swear, my next one will not be orange. I have to try some other coloring! XD

Yay an update.
You're right the avatar is good.I love the colour tone(orange is good you know>>) and the borders and its very different.I like how you showed the hand it matches the "dont let go" quote in the sig.
I like the bg in the sig it looks like light flooding in to a room.Very pretty and the quote is so cute.Keep it up^^

Very nice one!! Good use of pastel colours and shapes! I like it =) If the flow was a bit better, it would be a great tag.

Well done ;)

Awhhh what a pretty new set! I actually like the lighting in it, gives it a dreamy sort of feel. You're right that the av you created for this one is different, I'm not sure I'd specifically prefer it for myself but it works, and it's a nice change of pace for you. Altogether a splendid set, amazing work!

Oh yeah, and no more lurking for you! Can't wait to see more ^_^

Hmm...about time I start commenting here too ^_^
About your latest set:

I love the avatar...it's somewhat unique...most of them would try to use the face for ava,but the hand..well,I love it <3

Now,for the sig:
I love the effects in bg,for they are not overdone..
Character is cute,and the whole balance of the sig is truly awesome...
Mmm,the font is nice too,somewhat fancy,but still,Hama loves it ^_^
Sorry for lame comment,I'm somewhat lazy >.<

Yay, I have another siggy. The extract was really pretty, and I really wanted to use it. I'm working a lot on lighting too, so this was a good one to practice on. Here you go! ;p

About time I returned the favour I think by commenting back on your work also ^-^ thank you again for the comments also and the new signature you did is awesome, the lighting looks good there but my only thing is the text is maybe a little hard to read and the image kind of looks a little weird around her face but that could just be me .. keep up the good work though.. oh and also as my rep said, I love your new set .. it's very sweet and the colours are awesome .. great work again

Mira Kaiba
11-11-2007, 05:41 PM
Thanks for the comment, PhoenixChan. ;p I'll work on the text on that last one - I think I'll try darkening the stroke.

Anyway, here's an old abstract one I did. This is when I was learning the liquify tool. XD

Post 147 is really good,I mean it...
I like how you did it,all the colors match with eachother...Also,the sig is easy to the eyes,not overdone with effects,and well balanced too...perhaps the down part light is too strong,but it's really not bad...
The character looks nice,and I like the font,so fancy ^_^

Hmm,the last post...I don't really understand it..?
It looks good,but it would be easier for me to comment if I'd realize what's that...
But oh well..
Effects are again,not overdone,but the borders are missing...also it has a nice feeling to it,though I cannot explain why...it looks somewhat mystic <3

Mira Kaiba
11-11-2007, 07:53 PM
Thanks for the comment Hama! XD I'm glad that you like the first sig. For the second one, it's like a waterfall abstract, so I was hoping it resembled a waterfall... @_@

Anyway, I added borders like you suggested, which helped I think. ^^'

Mira! It's time to return the favour.^_^ I'll comment on the latest one. I like the whole abstraction (does this term exist?^^') of the sig. I can see where it resembles a waterfall but when I tilt my head to the side it becomes a huge cavern. Very nice.=D

Famahama
11-15-2007, 11:15 AM
I can see... some rocks looking stuff in there >.>;
The middle of the two rocks looks like water :3
weird colors though...
and the fonts looks a bit strange.

wait. Now that i see the lights, it looks like the sig is underwater themed @_@
strange. well,its a different opinion for all.

Flow sig:Aaah sparkly.I simply adore the lighting in this sig it suits the picture so well and good use of colours too.
Falls sig:Good abstract art.It has a slight grungy feel to it too.And great tone for the whole sigs.

@Unli - yeah, it does look kind of under-watery, now that you mention it...ah well, that's why it's abstract! ;p

Update - two new sets, one Urahara one for me and a request for animeseishi. Enjoy! ^^

Mira what program do you use? You have lovely work. If you have photoshop I was wondering if you'd like to do a collab signature.

As for tips on your signatures I would suggest blending your render a bit better. Otherwise you have them down great nice colors ect.

Mira Kaiba
11-21-2007, 03:05 PM

@S3siki - I do use photoshop, and I'd love to do a collab with you. Just pm me with what you were thinking. Also, thanks for the tip. I'll work on blending more. XD

Hamashimura
11-25-2007, 05:28 AM
About time for me to get back...
New sets,eh?
Let's see...

Urahara set is well done,especially the bg,it's well matching with the character,mhm...
May I suggest placing about 1mm or 2mm wide borders,with color a bit lighter than right side of the sig?
Lol,perhaps it's just me,but nice matching borders are always making a set looking even better...
*hugs borders*,lol
Anywho,I like the font too,color of the fonts are well matching the whole sig...
Very nice...

As for the second one,what I think is that the contrast is too big...
I mean,the dark sky,with very,very bright moon...well,perhaps it's just me,but kinda doesn't go along together?
Perhaps if the moon was not so bright...
But that's the matter of personal opinion,and I say how I feel while commenting,so yeah...
Other people find the contrast likable,but for me it's just not having a nice flow,if I'm expressed myself properly...
I'm not saying that it's bad,far away from that...I like it,but I dislike the contrast idea...

And voila! With all these amazing sigs,you've earned yourself a new admirer ^_^

Keep up <3

11-25-2007, 07:29 AM
The Uruhara signature is very nice, though it could use a few mor effects. Right now it's really quiet looking, that's nice as well, but you could spice it up a little.

I really like the avatar of the second set, also the signature looks really nice. And the animation works really well to, nicely done ;D

Keep up the grand work~!

The Urahara set was beautifully done. I love the colors, style, and the overall effect.
The animated set looks nice as well. Maybe if you have lessen the blur, it might be a little better.
Keep up the great work and I'll be looking forward to seeing more good stuff.

Mira Kaiba
11-25-2007, 06:36 PM
Yay, thanks for the comments! XD
@Hama - I'll work on the contrast, maybe make the moon a little dimmer, or the background a little lighter. And I have a version with borders - I'll post when I upload. I dunno, I like a lot of stuff better without borders for some reason, but I bow down to them! :awe:

Here's a couple of works - the first is my final entry to the SigMaster finals, and the original pic, and the second is the first version of a set I did for Darkmoon#. C&C! ^^

Hamashimura
11-27-2007, 06:34 AM
Well,as I said,it's a matter of personal taste,if you like them more without borders,then create them like that ^_^
Most of all,it's you who should be satisfied with them the most,and then us...

Ah,an fresh update!!
Let's see...
Omigod!!
I like the true picture, <3 the nature..
But...the sig...whoa!!
It's amazing how you managed to do the arm,it's so...AWESOME!!
I like the whole sig idea,it's very nice,and easy to the eyes..
BG is catchy,and simple to some point,with well chose color,which are giving it extremely beauty...
Also,the character really goes well with the sig,and addition of butterfly gives a nice feeling to it...
Sorry if I haven't expressed myself properly...
Fancy looking text is very good too,I love it...

Darkmoon one,on the other hand is a bit...strange..?
I like the bg effects,and the townish look of it,but I'm confused about the character...
That's a character,right?
Now,don't hate me for my honesty,but I find it somehow mixed up in the bg,which is good if you were planning to create it like that...
On the other hand,if that's not a character (seems like hands,hence my thoughts),and just the skate,then it's better,but then remains the handish looking problem...
Dunno...
I like it and dislike it at the same time...
Sorry,I dunno how else to explain it *smacks head*

Mira Kaiba
12-09-2007, 04:09 PM
Thanks for the comments! I liked doing the Dream sig, though it took forever. ^^'
@Hama: The image I used is just the bottom half of the dude skating, but it does blend into the background a bit too much, I agree. I worked on it some and brought the character more out of the background and added some contrast. Thanks for the comments - you express yourself perfectly. :D

Here's a new set - I love Ergo Proxy, and Pino is so cute, so here's a set! XD

Mhm,I see,so that's how it's supposed to be...
I see now,but really,that didn't looked like legs,lol...
Anywho,the new version is better,for it is seen the down part of character,and it's not mixed with the bg that much...

Mhm,Ergo Proxy is awesome...
First of all,I like the idea,it really is done in Ergo Proxy's mood...
Dark and mystic...
Balance is on the high level,and the small contrast between light and dark color are well done...
Bg itself is well done,without useless effects,and combined with the character gives nice feeling to it...
It might be due the character's face,but I find this set very cute...
Left and right borders,on the other hand,could've been a bit darker,since right now,they're somewhat brighter than they're supposed to be...?
Just a wee bit darker...? Dunno,it may be just me...

So,for el finito - your latest set is cute and beautiful...I always look forward for an update,for I enjoy visiting this thread...
Keep up *hugs*

p.s. U are sooooo getting a gift back! Just sit and wait!!! >=D

12-15-2007, 06:33 AM
I love the one you made for angelic_assasin. I love the colors and the background and even the border. Gives a good feeling =D

I don't like the rest of the sigs though. They look dull to me. More could have been worked on the background and I think the Nespa needs a light-spot. o.o

I like the stock used for the Sasuke-clan one but once again, I think the background is a bit empty.

Nevertheless, keep it up, you're doing great and Merry Christmas! ^_^

Hamashimura
12-15-2007, 09:59 AM
Oui,oui,nice works...
Perhaps too *happy*,but yeah,it's only me,so don't worry about it...
My personal favorite would be the one you did for Nespa,it has really nice feeling to it,and the background is well matched with the character...
It's very cute and pretty looking sig...
Also,the font is great...also,the borders are just great...

The Angelis sig is very good,but I dislike the characters mouth...
Haha,lol,I know you didnt created that,but still...
The background is well done,and so is the coloring,which makes the whole sig well balanced...
Ah,and nice effect with the borders,looks very nice ^_^

2nd sig has somewhat empty background???
Maybe just me,but kinda doesn't goes well with the coloring of the character?
Like,the bg is kinda too bright..?
Dunno,as I said,it's only the matter of taste...
But the character is sooooo cute!!
Also catchy holiday font...

The last one...ah,good,good...only thing I mind is black and white contrast of characters and bg...
I don't really know what else to say,not much room for comments on this one,so yeah...

Oh well...

Mira Kaiba

12-17-2007, 08:07 AM
Wow, Sorry I haven't commented again here in ages and also thanks for the comments over in my thread ^_^ About time I returned the favour with a comment so let's see.

The one you did for Angelic is really cute, the font looks amazing so good choice and the whole sig just blends really well so nice work ^_^
Looks like it could be Haruhi but could just be me ... o.0 I don't know.

The one for Jagan, hmm ... the border style looks a little odd to me but that could just be me, kinda seems one sided and doesn't balance out very well.
Kinda not sure on whether the character fits in very well either as the colouring just looks a little off ... could just be down to personal taste thats all.

The one for Nespa looks good again, nice background and the character fits in well with it ^_^ nice text choice again so well done and lastly the one for Sasuke-Clan...Hmm .. it's definitely a good choice of image and the background looks good too, not too busy but not empty ^_^ I like it and I'm sure he'll love it.

All in all, Awesome sets for the christmas holidays ^_^ well done and keep up the good work.

Oh, forgot you added another two also >_<
Also, very nice work although the one for Dopam1ne may look a little dark .. but that could just be me again, sorry if my comments sucked.

Nice ones. Be careful with the effects and don't make the sigs too busy. Sometimes, it's also good not to add text in sigs.

http://i188.photobucket.com/albums/z58/MiraKaiba/pinosig.jpg

This one has too much contrast, and the brushing is a bit messy. Other than that, I like it.

Merry X'mas to you too :D

Hamashimura
12-18-2007, 07:34 AM
Oh!! I got a gift-sig... *hugs* very kind ^_^

I've already made a request, but I shall wear yours too, during holidays ^_^
Thank you ^_^
Hmm... now it's comment time...
I like the idea,it's not looking too happy,and the bg is without unnecessary effects... I like it like that, simple and beautiful...
Also the sig itself may look like a reflection of one part of my personality, because of the birds ...
It associated me with nature, and that's what I love ..
Also,the sig itself has a nice balance... gotta love it ^_^
Only thing I mind are squares in the corners, perhaps it would look better with just borders without squares?
Font is well done, not too fancy, and border color is well matched with the sig..

2nd one,on the other hand is kinda too *strong*
Hmm... what I want to say is, the red color is... darn,I can't express properly,me and my english *smacks head* ..well,the red is kinda too strong and dark.. a lighter version of red would do the trick I think?
Bg is well done, though you could add small lightning at the top left corner... I've tried to imagine how that would look like, and I think that outcome wouldn't be bad.. but also it could change the sg, so better not doing it I think...
Pretty much only thing that bothers me is strong red bg ...
Font is nice btw.

And that's pretty much everything I have to say for now...
Keep up ^_^

This is a really nice set. It has a mysterious effect and I like that.
Avvy:
Your avatars are always so in depth. I like how the border is faded like the whole avatar. The faded text also adds nicely to the effect.
Siggy:
The way the border cuts on on both the bottom and the top is really cute. The grungey background is really nice and it makes the sig feel full. I like the text as well and the placement was very nice.

Good job!

The new sig is really nice. I mean it really tops the cake. I like the avvy for the new set. This fadey, smudgy effect really works. Great job.

Thanks to everyone for the uber-nice comments! I've been working a lot more with smudge effects and such. Here's a new set, and thankies to Megami91 for the awesome avvy tutorial! ^^ Please C&C.

Yet another step forward. Good render placement and lightning. It's a bit overwhelming tho. The text isn't bad.
You still need to add more detail and colour to your pieces.
Ah, I would suggest you to remove that shape of the upper left corner. It looks weird.

Other than that, it's quite nice :)

Thanks for the comment. I will work on detail and color. In the meantime, here is a new set. I like how it came out. I'm not sure if I like the more colored one better or not. C&C if you would like. ^^

Ah yes, and the credit for the awesome extract goes to Serated. XD

No way,you're on page 2 T_T not fair,come to page 1 =P
So this happens when I'm not around (I wasnt' home for more than month,so yeah...)
So many updates I've missed...
Oh,forgive me T_T ..Now,as I'm back I won't miss updates again ^_^

Let's take a quick review of the last page...
Going back in time to xmas...
Both xmas sigs,for Akari and DB are just beautiful...
Without many effects,with nice balance and fonts...
Pretty darn great...I epsecially love the Akari one,I love that Elf...
It's form Lodoss,right..?
About other sig,the contrast may be too strong,but no worries ^^

The Mia sig is amazing...I love it like that,simple yet beautiful...
The whole theme may not match the xmas theme,but oh well..
I love the way it looks,especially the character placement...
Just great XD
Only thing I mind is her username,it's hard to be seen,and perhaps could help if the letters where bold,or a bit larger...

From post 187 I would go with the 2nd one...
Bleach one is kinda...well messy,and character doesn't fit with the bg very well...dunno,it may be just me...
The 2nd one,on the other hand is a blast,I really love it..
The idea is nice,character placement is well chosen,and the bg effects are great...
The balance of the sides is good,and the light effect reminds me of wings...
I know they're not,but let me imagine they are =P
Simply...fascinating ^_^

The Ergo Proxy on,from post 189 is good...there are nice parts,and two things i dislike...
Ahywho,the sig matches the mood of anime,and has a mystic mood to it...
The bg is great,and matches up with a character...
I especially like how the bg mixes up with character at some points,really good...
As for cutting with borders,I find them unnecessary...
The sig is flawless,and beautiful,so I find the borders to kinda ruin it's beauty...
Also,the letters should be a bit bigger (tho not necessary),but definitelly should change a color a bit in the "xy" letters...
And that's it...
Pretty much great work on this one Mira... <3 it

Post 195 is great...
Again,I love the idea that comes with words,kinda gives the sad mood to the whole sig...
The bg is nice,really matches with the words,and character is well chosen,since simply goes with the whole flow of the sig...
Now,those 1/3 of borders are looking nice here,since their color matches the bg one...
Pretty much everything I can say about this one...
Very nice...

Last one is pretty mipressive...
Red version is better for me...I love how you did effects,seems like a flame and the lightning is great too,gives effect almost like wings...
Very beautiful sig,with pretty good txt placement...
Also,the balance is flawless,and being without too many effects...
Just great,I really love this one...
Hmm...Is it just me,or you're trying out new style..?

01-27-2008, 08:07 PM
I like your new set Mira =3

Personally, out of the two sigs, I like the first one best. This is probably due to the fact that it looks more vibrant. The kid looks innocent and maybe the second one's a little dull.

All in all, I think you're pretty amazing. Keep it up!

Mira Kaiba
01-28-2008, 10:42 PM
Yay, thanks Hama and Akari for the comments!
@Hama - Yep, I've been trying out new styles - I really liked the way the last one came out. It was basically a bunch of blurring and smudging. ^^

I think I like the first one better too - I don't like the text. I think I might change it on that one. :3

Here's a new sig I did with Megami's tutorial. The left side is a little empty - I may put something there. It came out neat though - it's a very good tutorial! ^^

You're doing a good job using lots of different kinds of effects and lighting for your sigs, Mira :)

01-30-2008, 05:48 AM
I think there were problem with displaying images,because when I checked out this for the last time,there wasn't any sig T_T
Nuuuu...
Oh well...but I do see it now,so that's not problem anymore ^^
( I should really reinstall windows )

Let's see what you have there,shall we...?
Ouch,now that's a beauty ^^
I really love the character,and it's placement,for it's matching very nice...
The bg is well done,I love the effects,though the light near character might be a bit of stronger than it should...
But I think that it wouldn't be this good if you darker it,so let's just leave it ^^
Bg goes well with the characters mood,and I definitely like the changing between color type in bg ( darker ===> lighter )...
Nice matching color font only add to the beauty of it ^^
Overall,nice job Mira ^^
Keep up the grand work <3

Good job Mira, you are improving :)

Thanks again everyone! I have 2 new ones.
A House sig - I rather like this one. ^^

http://i188.photobucket.com/albums/z58/MiraKaiba/Housesj.jpg

Vector-ish sig. I'm not sure about the cuts to the grey areas - I might change how they look. They seem kind of distracting to me. Extract credit to Serated - thanks. C&C! XD

Really nice new one. ^_^ You've improved so much. It's amazing. Teehee. =) Only complaint I really have is the placement of Angelic's name. I liked the old one's text more...with the 'Rock Star'.

PS: Now would be a good time to start working on depth, effects, and lighting. ^_^

Edit: Noticed there were two new sigs. @@; That house one too. Erm.. I really like the text in this one, but I'm not really liking the sig overall. It feels weird. It's obvious there's a light source somewhere in the stock since his face is bright, but your sig is so dark everywhere with no light source in sight. It makes him feel well.. just pasted on. In other words, it's really flat.

Thanks for the C&C. I wasn't sure if I should add a light source to the House sig because his face was already so light - I was afraid it would look washed out. But I will go and add one now. Thanks!! XD

@Angelic - yays, I'm glad you like it! ^^

EDIT: Here's the new House sig with the light. I hope it turned out alright - the angle was kind of hard. I might change the brightness. 8p

Anyway nice work.The backgrounds are beautiful sand they flow nicely.The text is outstanding and so is the render.All in all I say 10/10

Hamashimura
02-03-2008, 04:26 PM
Ah,a fresh update...
Hmmm...
The House one...
It's good,but I'll have to agree with Clowangel over there about light...
And because of that it kind of ruins the complete balance between character and background...
Confusing...?
Lemme explain...
Character itself is okay as it is...the bg isn't...You should've placed the light effect infront of his face,just to add the I'm-a-light-that-lights-up-his-face feeling...
And with that minor offness,his face completely jumps out of dark background...
Perhaps if bg would be brighter...?
Dunno...

2nd one,on the other hand is very good...
I love the bg effects in it,and character kind of well matches with the bg...
I'm only confused about potato looking thingie near the right corner...
It's not crowded with effects,and coloring is pretty catchy...
Font is nice,and so is the coloring of it...
Sorry,dunno what else to say <__<;;;

Keep up...

clowangel
02-03-2008, 08:46 PM
Hmm..still looks awkward since the light source looks like it's behind his head. @@; Which means his face wouldn't be light, but dark. Why not just try using a 300px air brush and just brush lightly on a corner or above his head like you did on a layer ABOVE the render? Erase a bit if it's too bright, but yeah, it'll work better. It'll look a lot more natural. ^^

Edit: Also even if your current light source was on a top layer, it wouldn't look right either.. since it's a rather small light source. It doesn't seem likely it would light his face as much as it does in the stock. @@; Understand what I mean?

Mira Kaiba
02-03-2008, 09:27 PM
Okay, here's another update of the House sig. I changed the light like you said - it made the right side pretty bright, but it does look more natural I think. Thanks for all the help with this one. If there are any more lighting changes I should consider, let me know. ^^

Ah,the House sig now is much,much better...
I love the placement of light effect,it makes it much better...
It's clearly seen how the light falls upon his face,and makes character one with the background,and at the same time makes sig a whole lot better...
I'd even dare to say that it's perfect...

Sig for Akari is pretty much adorable...
I love the look of it,the character is cute and matches well with the bg...
Effects are nice,so is the font...
It's simple,yet beautiful siggy..
Sorry for this,but I don't see what to comment on anymore..
The sig is perfect and gorgeous as it is...

Very nice work overall.

Ahhhh, its so kawaiii!!!! I love it. The background is so simple and yet is so full-ish, its amazing. I love it completely Mira. I also like how you do your borders. Very adorably done. The text is slightly blurry but maybe thats just my computer. The placement is right and it matches nicely. Good job.

Yay! a rock star anime =P...I like the simplicity of it....the backgrounds I mean...it's very adorable...^^ and wow! great idea with Angelic's txt name^^...but the word concert in the right bothers me...because it's cut....but this siggy really is adorable!^^



http://i188.photobucket.com/albums/z58/MiraKaiba/Housesjl.jpg

But for me...there's nothing wrong with the light because of course you need a shadow...which is why there's the word "My Shadow"? and you can't have shadow without that light...that's my opinion....anyway...nice done with the backgrounds^^ it's very adorable^^...I bet that dark color lovers will agree with me=)...good work mira!



http://i188.photobucket.com/albums/z58/MiraKaiba/Valentinesak.jpg


Ahhh...I'm a fan of blond anime girls!^^...well...the background is too light....I like the text but it's not that clear but nice work with the reflection of the girl's hand holding a heart (below it)=)

This sig did indeed come out very well.
The avatar is perfect as always. I like the way it was done, but I think you should have moved the image a little to the left so that more of the face is showing. But still, it is fine.
The signature is beautiful. I like how you did the white border amongst the sig and the text is wonderful. The background is amazing as always. I really love it. Good job <3

Anyways, comments and/or critique coming up!

Avi: I really like the avi! It's so gorgeous! It's so pretty and very cute! Nothing less from you, as always.

Sig: I super love the background! The color blending really fits the image well. The text are all great and they have matching colros and legible sizes. Like Jaggy, I love the way you made the border along the sig and text!
