My cousin is Darkcrystal and she and I share and use Photoshop together (since we share the same laptop (xD), she taught me some things and I love her for it. <3
Anyway, I'm pretty new, except taught by my great cousin.

I really like you third sig too (the gardener one). You did a really great job. Your set is kind of dull in th background though. you should add more color and use different brushes. But good job on them anyways. ^_^
The corrupted angel sig is really nice. Reps to you!

Konata Izumi
07-23-2007, 02:51 AM
Ah, thanks for the comment and the reps. <3
The set is actually from a manga scan I colored in and just couldn't find the right brushes for it. x3
Guess I'm in the need for more brushes.

Oooh nice work you got here! I <3 the first Shuffle signature... (well, I like Shuffle >.>) Your works looks kinda simple, but they're really pretty and I think that you're really good at making avatars ^__^ (Ew, I hate making those, hate hate >.<)

I don't like your current set much... the avatar looks nice and eye-catching, but I dunno about the signature =/ But I think that's just my taste.

The animated icon is veeeryyy kawaaii, I dunno if it's supposed to be like that, but the girl's face is a bit 'jiggly', but cuuute. It's good work in overall.
Love all your avatars <3
Keep it up! *thumps up*

I finally decided to do some siggies. :3
The Mana and Konata sigs are now claimable.

This signature took me 2 hours believe it or not. The extraction credit goes to MaruDashi.

Ah, great work! ^-^
I especially adore your icons -I have a weak for icons XD-
they're really amazing~

Alright, to the comment we go. Your latest post.
Hmm, as for the Mion-set, the background color {the greyish..} looks a tad off. Other than that it's great.
Second one. The twinkly star in the middle is kind of distracting, it really makes you focus all your attention on it and that's too bad because the rest of the sig is gorgeous.

The Rozen Maiden sigs and icons are my favorite for some reason--they really stand out, graphicwise and just everything. :3
Great work!

Mira Kaiba
08-20-2007, 12:27 PM
Yay, more works, and a fan button! *steals* I love the Mion and Pieces of me icons. I also like the Midday Star set, though I agree with Wonderwice on the star part. Maybe you should change the focus or move the star or something... Maybe for the animated sig you should put more time in between when the text appears, slow it down a bit so they don't all come in on top of each other. But it looks cool! My fave sig is the last one. It's very simple and relaxing. Can't wait for more updates! XD

*bangs head* why did i not post before?
FIrst to post one:
My favourite has to be the heavens feel sig its simple yet very beautiful and the last one is very original.
Post three:
I love the blood splatter and the style.The stock is really good and so is the placing and the text goes well with the image.
Your first animated icon is so cute*runs off with the icon*
Lets see your avatar making style is very unique and I think your avatars are much better than your sigs I love them.I hope you keep making more^^

08-21-2007, 06:05 AM
Hmm...
I love your stuff so far! ^_^
Especially the one in post #17 that you are using for your sig. It's got a great feel to it. With the moving text, it's a little jumpy. And the second set of words appears for less time than the first, or the last.
^_^ Keep up the good work ^_^

UrusaiSevera
08-21-2007, 04:55 PM
your current sig looks fabulous... but the ones I like most are the first ones you posted xD

Though the "aqua most" sig looks pretty neat... nice and simplistic.. I love it

Now for timing... you can change the time one frame stays, normally it's set to, lets say, 100 ms. You can change this time per frame, this way you can slow down the rate at which the text appears. Also you could change the opacity in each frame, this way the change of text can also be slowed down.. cause now it's going pretty fast and I can't read that fast... xD

Keep up the grand work!

Ms. Konata, you are excellent with your work. Your cousin must be really good at teaching, because I can tell you right now, that's hardly a beginner's art. Continue with your art, and you may be designing for someone big one day.

The White Len one is really really cool, the background is subtle in parts but defined in others ^_^

I don't like the Heaven Please one cos it looks a bit cut off and grainy-ish.

The chibi one is cute though but it just seems a bit too plain.

Sweet X3 Haven't been here for a while and heck, you've improved so much again XD
Warcuied - She looks like Arcuied from Shingetsutan Tsukihime btw o_o - Anyhow, awesome sig x3 Scanlines give the, say, finishing touch.
The Radiance icon - It's a tad too sharp and the colors are a little.. dodgy o_o but the whole concept is great!
I -absolutely, completely- adore the Rozen Maiden ones. The text is amazing me, for some reason XD I think the first one would look better if her nose&mouth would be sharper, it's a tad blurry now.
Chibi and Pixel sig are awesome! Can't really say I like the repeating icons; the ones with the same character in the thing twice. The background, the effects, the blending and the text are great-- but I just don't like it when the same figure repeats. It just.. doesn't look right o_o
Anyhow, keep up the great work! ^__^

Odd how I've never noticed this thread before... I'm getting old.^^'

I must say, brilliant stuff. Specially the avatars. They're very creative. I usually just put a simple character on mine because I find it hard to cram stuff in it so I'm very impressed.

I'll wait for the next update to post my C&C since I don't want to comment on old stuff. (My fault for not noticing this thread sooner.^^') I'll just say my favourite has to be sounseiki (Is that how you spell it? I only know how her name sounds since I watched the anime version.) Very nicely done sig. Keep it up.

Hisui & Kohaku
- This one's good, i like the sparkling brushes you used here, as well as the text placement. Though i think the render/stock is a lil oversharpened or maybe that's just my eyes lol.

Textless
- It's small, hence the cuteness xD Simple but b.e.a.utiful imo.

10-08-2007, 06:24 PM
An update? Whoopee! At long last, I shall be able to comment.haha.xD

Hmm...for the first one, I like how you did the blending of the extract with the bg. I think you might have overexposed the extract a little too much though. They're a little too bright and you can see a hint of overexposure on some of their outlines.

Second sig, I like how you made it small and all and yet still managed to fit in two decent sized characters. But maybe take advantage of the size a little more? With a small sig, you can use just one brush and make it look like you used a multitude. Add something more the bg, that sort of thing. Hope you understood what I just said.^^'

Avatar is just, wow. Very nicely done. Everything just comes off perfectly and I have no complaints. Great job!=]

These are great! I also like your current set. It's nice and simple, and purple! I don't see very many purple signatures. The placement of the extracts were very thoughtful and creative. The Icons that you make are always interesting and make me wish that I can do something similar. Don't stop updating. =)

Caren sig:Aaah the sig has such a soft feel to it.I love the extract blending.The brushing is great.Its tought to use more than one brush and still make it look good but you did it.^^
Kotori sig:Red great colour choice and awesome lighting as usual.The strokes in the bg are great.
Star sig and this night sig:Both are sparkly ^^' I love the bg on both.The text on star looks better(the blur to the right is a good add)
White clarity set:The best out of all the above.Everything just comes together so well in this sig and thats such an awww quote*sniff* I'm proud of you konata chan.

These are really good Konata! The songstress set is one of th best sets I've seen all day! (I just woke up XD) The light does seem a little intense, but other than that, it's perfect. The Turn Away From Hope signature is another great signature that you've made! A few negative space here and there doesn't matter. I kind of get the feeling that it's somewhat trying to create a sense of wideness? That's what I get out of it. Again, your avatars are great. Hope you make some more later. =D

Yay, an update :3

The songstress one is a bit bright. The background blends with the render :3
The only thing is, its the font. The border color looks good!

The Higurashi set.
i love it! The flowers gives out a nice shine.
The Icons are sweet!

Thank you so much for the comments dearies. They are greatly appreciated.

Ok, time for a image overload. Since my internet died on the weekend I messed around with Photoshop a little too much.

Very nice stuff you have here. Rare to see many Higurashi signatures. I should do some extracts of sigs of them. Anyway, i like you vibrant color style, it really works well for you avatars. As for the signature, some flow would be a great idea. Try out DeviantArt's stock pile of Photoshop Brushes. I bet you will find some amazing stuff there.

Keep up great work.

The vocaloid one is great but it would be better without the eyes in the background. I also really really like the sig you made for Shougo. The other sigs are cool too but those two are the ones I really like ^_^

The chibi Kona icon is so cute ^_^

Well I haven't been here in a long while.. or I haven't been here ever at all, I can't remember.

But I went through the last two pages and I like what I see.
I especially like the set in which you used a picture of yourself. And the gifts you are handing out are just pure awesome. Though the one you did for Serated is the best, I like the color and the vector style.

One point of critique though: When you use the diagonal stripes faded into the picture (like in "the smile"), keep the stripes out of the face. In my opinion this effect deters from the image and makes it a little annoying to look at.


Keep up the grand work!

Sorry I haven't been here in a while, been busy with wallpapers and stuff. And you update so much in one go. Very difficult to comment on them all. (lol. blame the set maker.)

Right, on to Project Generosity & Caring. I like how in all of them there's a nice and soft feel. It gives it a touch of cuteness, even Serated's vector one. And the avatars, you're really good at making them stand out. Very nice.^_^

Only issue I have was the Songstress one you did seemed a little too bright but thats all really... personal favourites would be the Vocaloid set, Corrupted Angel and the Vanity signature also I think it was. I'll definitely be keeping an eye on your work from now on ... keep up the great work!! ^^

Your new updates are awesome. The blending is done really well and you've really improved from your first ones. Well done.^^

The icons, as usual, are really good as well. Though I think on one it came out a little too sharp. But no harm done.

I'd have to agree with you there Unli. Although I don't really think it's a Myself; Yourself signature. She had purple hair. But it does really remind me of her. Other than the size, I really like it a lot. But then again you're putting it on the right side of your signature. So I guess it looks good that way.

The avatars are amazing Kona-chan! I've always admired your avatar making skills. I just wanna steal one. X3

Your weak-points fall under your banner. You make them look plain, but your avatars are amazing. Thing is, you need to fix out the colours and it'll look real good. In your banners you make it either too bright or too dark. It really doesn't look so good and I suggest you messing with the colour hues, selective colours, etc. That way, the colours will stand out in a different way. Don't make the banners so blury, so you should sharpen it out a bit.

That's the end of my critism and I'm not trying to be harsh. Take it like me... helping you. ._.;

Amazing avatars as usual. I think you should take the effects of your avatars and apply them into your signatures more. Most of them lack things like flow and depth in their composition. I do love the color application you use with them overall.

Liked this signature the most ;3
Not too vividly dark (first) and not depending on scanlines.

Although,
http://i131.photobucket.com/albums/p320/Fahmi011/Burningpixels.png
The area I circled is the area that has burning pixels. Very heavy to look at, you may want to do something about the sharp red color there and maybe fix all the places similar to that (there's craploads of them, look for it). Adding, its still a bit too vivid imo, the girl I mean. The background is perfectly fine. I'll be stealing the color swatches now.

Anyways, it looks like she's walking through a trench in Mars XD nice piece there!

The vertical signature

Nice change of pace there =D I think I prefer the second version since the first one has colors that looks kinda murky. And also since the second one has a 'shes-in-a-lake' feel (lol, I can't it to words, how awesome is that?!). Its probably that light-colored reflection looking thing I'm seeing. Good smudging techniques there. I do have to say that the girl in the second version has a washed out tone to it >__> Fix that. And also the fog thing blocking parts of her chest a bit *cough* Fix THAT.

Nice - I love these ones. The tall sig I especially love the bottom. Maybe you could smudge less actually on the extract so that it stands out more. I love the colors though.

I also really love the colors on the icons, especially the first one. Very nice sharpness. I like the light color on the last one.

Awesome works! ^^

Well this was my SoTW #10 buut it didn't get posted up. Oh well, Sera if you still want to wear it feel free.

Love the colours and simplicity of them. Just need some text and a simple border and shazzam smexyness. xD Great outcome from my tutorial aswell, Looove the colour scheme you have and the lil adorable extraction/render. Just the character is a bit too light but can be fixed easily. Love the simple older signature and the friends sig - *o* so cute. Great work, you has the talents //

Ok guys I have a job for you.~

I'll post up icons and I want you to pick 2 icons you want a tutorial on. Can be an icon anywhere within this thread. Icons with the most requests will get a tutorial.

I really like these two. The first one has such a pretty background and the placement was well done. I kinda think you should have added some mini white text to the right of the avvy. The second one is really cute. The black background is cute and the adorable butterfly in the background over the itty bitty text is well placed. Love them. <3

I think it's fine nonetheless.

I love these ones especially. The sig is fantastic - I love the lighting and the brightness of it, and the text fits very well with the rest of the sig.

The two avvies are great, especially the second one. I love the colors and the red lighter color around the girl. I also like the subtle text. You have some of the most beautiful avvies I have seen by far! ^^

And your new set is pretty eye-catching, I find it rare that people use the deliberate-cut-off style. Im liking them both, can't make a choice actually; more contrast at the whites, or less contrast all together? but one thing for sure is that the left side is better on V.1

oh yes,

I'm liking the sigs! It's also been a while for me since last time I had those "soft corners" if you know what I mean.

And you are so awesome in blending the focals into the sigs. My favourite one is the one made for KuroTan. I love what you did with the font and the effect around the girl and I also think it has a really nice focus for the eye.

My sig will go into my gift-post in my AF blog. ♥

Yes, yes, and more, yes. Amazing work with this one. Its a perfect combination of real world stocks and anime. Great job with the text and blending. The only way I could possibly see making this better is desaturating the yellows and adding some dark grassy spots to balance out the overall bright idea that this truly is.

I love the composition and colours you use in them. Maybe a tad more sharpened?
But then again, I'm a sharpening junkie. 8D
They are beautiful.
& for the vertical signature; I love the text, how it overlaps a tad. And the contrasting red eyes and blue background~~

I really like the saberlily sig, it's pretty and white and shiny! With the photomanip, it looks a bit odd, because the character is red, like she'd be in a sunset or something, instead of being just normal in plain sun. But I like the idea.

The only thing that looks high quality in that sig is the border to be honest. The image looks like it's going to fade away into the background. I like the image, but the effects transitioning into it made this a bad sig. Oh well we have to have a crappy one every once in a awhile right? It keeps us learning.

I am aware her eyes are a bit differently shaded. It's the stock's own problem.

I'm aiming to finish this thread by the end of the month. B)

Well then let's fill it up then. 8D

The red sig is holy craptastically awesome. The composition is just *0* Lovely manip there leadah. ^__^

And the Saberlily one is ohohohohowesomeness as well. I'm loving the blending; I can never pull it off. ;-;

Keep the updates coming my queen.

I LOVE the first one! Its blended so nicely. It just feels very smooth. All your stuff is very smooth and I really like that. The effects you used are really awesome. The font choice, text size, and text placement are really nicely chosen and they don't hurt the siggy at all. I think if you sharpened it a bit more it would help the focus, but overall, really really good.

Hehehehe, no re posting eh? Well may I use this one? Please <3


Now onto serious business.

On the post above

The first signature seem a bit simple, almost as if you didn't put in the same amount of work, maybe because it's smudging rather than brushing.

The second one I'm totally in love with, I'd marry it, but that would be weird o-O; love the pen tooling on the left but the right side seems too unloved to me. I also like the light source and various effects near the arms.

Third one is good, but lacks the super awesome effects you exhibited on the second signature. It seem real live stock is much harder on everyone o_O; must be because of all details or something.

Very nice use of the pentool I see, but one thing I notice is the size of your sigs, they are all very big and a bit overwhelming. Some are also too soft and not very detailed, try sharpening them up a bit around the focal. :3

You and I are opposites. I'm awesome at real life stock. Saturate, Contrast, Sharpen. That's what I first do to real life images, and they usually turn out pretty nice. Now I think your real life sig turned out pretty nice, except for the Konata Izumi text. It looks like it is fading into the background. Maybe it's becaise of the size and color?

Konata Izumi
11-28-2008, 07:45 PM
Yep, I'll practice my sharpening a bit more later. I tend to start off with a 500 x 250 px canvas then crop at the end, that might be the reason for the size.

Ahh, for that signature I was looking for a soft, fading look, not a blaring, bright one. I do tend to saturate most of my real life stock, not to the point crazy fluro colors begin popping up. I'm not too good with contrast I must say.
