Your new sigs are awesome! My favorite is the Kingdom Hearts one - the background is great! XD I like the first version of the "wanna taste" sig for some reason - I like the white better than the purple background. Post more of your works! ^^

KuroTan

ud be surprised how many times that happens when im making sigs.haha.^^ im actuali working on my new one rite now.if i finish it today, il post it.^^

dont be.even professionals make mistakes sumtimes.the best thing to do is learn from them.^^ oh, and i wuldnt sweat that mistake if i were u.its just one mistake and when u compare it to how many things u got rite in ur amazing set, its practically nothing.XD

*edit*

i finally finished a new set!hooray!lol.^^ i feel so sleepy...its past midnight over here...lol. XD

a big big thanks to Maru for such a kawaii extract.^^

this has got to be the most time consuming sig ive ever done.i had to put the letters in one at a time to get the circle thing.so hard.-.-'

if it looks like the words are kinda cramped that's coz i was halfway through the sig when i realized that this was gonna be a tight fit.i was too lazy nd sleepy to redo it all over again so i just squeezed them all together.^^'

as always, CndC are always welcome! im pretty sure ill get a lot of complaints about this one tho coz i was almost dropping off when i was doing it.

hope u like it!im gonna go to sleep now..._ _ z

shougo amakousa
08-29-2007, 11:07 AM
Yay you updated^^
First....It is so Cuuuuute as in a rice ball cute XD.I really like your style of putting text in the Bg its kind of different but awesome.
The words are fine they dont look cramped except a small of the rollarcoaster.
And the avatar is simple yet so effective.You used vector brushes too! but different from the normal ways and it works it adds more cuteness.A border would have thrown off the sig but a 1 pixel white or pink one would be more finishing.I should get a sig done by you after my set ^_^
~shougo~

KuroTan
08-29-2007, 03:38 PM
so much praise...im overwhelmed wid joy.XD tnx for the suggestion, i tried it out. here it is:

http://www.animeforum.com/image/6013246d5d6fc29bed.jpg

i didnt reali use any brushes for that set.^^ i had the background thing saved in my hardrive, i used the create sphere tool in photoshop to make the circle thingys and for the avatar i used the rectangular thingy tool.that's one technique i use all the time.haha.^^

tell me when u need a new set, il gladly do one for u.^^

*edit*

since i made a new set and no one has replied to my latest post yet, ill use the edit button again.well, at least ive learned sumthng today.^^

ok new set.

once again, a big tnx to Maru for the kawaii extraction.^^ if ur reading this, i sure hope u dont take offence wid me using a lot of ur extracts.they're just so nice.XD

i had a lot of fun wid all the renders in photoshop when i made this sig.haha.that was coz it was my first time playing wid most of those settings.i even managed to put in a twirl render.before today i didnt even know that option existed.^^ it almost got to the point where the girl almost disappears into a bright flash of light.^^'

thankfully, i managed to undo that error.lol.

so what do you think?

shougo amakousa
08-30-2007, 01:16 AM
Hah first to comment^^.
The sig looks really good with the border now.
In your new set the first thing about it is the feathery angel effect it is very well done and smooth.Looks like you had fun doing this one.XD also I love the quote(well I like all the quotes in your sigs) You can also try using a lighter colour of font and if you want it to stand out try blending it with outer glow or just experiment.*Claps* very well done set^^
~shougo~

KuroTan
08-31-2007, 01:22 AM
first to reply.lol.XD thank you very much.^^ it was fun clicking all those different filters and seeing wat happens.i think i went through all of them at least once.^^ but i didnt put them all.lol.that wuldve been reali messy.

i really like that pink-purple play with all the seeming subtle bubbles... nice and solid composition... it makes me feel that am floating along with them... that work exudes expressions and emotions that reaches out that makes it almost come out of the screen... really nice work! and the quotes in them are really cute and quirky--goes well with the scene you're playing with in the sig... keep it up! and keep 'em coming!^^...XD

KuroTan
09-01-2007, 01:00 AM
thanks!i was actually kinda surprised how the text turned out in the first set.i clicked the outer glow style and the whole thing just lit up like a neon ad on the streets of tokyo.XD

im kinda trying to make the sigs i use in one style so when people see it they immediately see that's me.but ive only made two yet so i cant brag yet about how i made them all the same.lol.

and just for fun *laughs along wid u* XD

its pretty good.The avatar is a different colour from the sig but it still looks great.Its good to deviate from your style.If I had the image I would not have used orange (because I never take risks) but you experimented and got....wait for it.....A great sig^^ nice placement of the image too good job.
~shougo~

KuroTan
09-03-2007, 02:10 AM
they're different colours coz in the sig i used an overlay colour mode for the pics but then for the avi i forgot the settings i used and i was too lazy to check again so i just put in the unedited pic.sidenote, those were actually from 2 different fanarts.

thanks for the CndC, that makes me brave enough to try out more new styles!lol.but maybe not grunge since its a little too dark for me.^^'

oh, and since il be starting college on tuesday, it'll be some time before i post new stuff again.just saying.

Aww your sigs are so kawaii <3
I can easily tell that YOU made that sig because you keep your sigs in the same style, but that doesn't have to be a bad thing anyway. It's kinda different from other persons styles here in AF, but there's always room for improvement... though I don't know what to add there. XD I personally didn't like the swirls, you could've used some vector brushes instead, maybe. o.o
Keep it up!

Thank you! I will try to change that. I got a little hooked on that style after Gintara's tutorial. I said to myself, well isn't that easy?lol. I am a lazy person.

Thanks! I liked the cuteness of that set too.^^ I'd like to say this tho, the requestee's not even using it! Grr... (very...very bad impersonation of a growl.^^') Now I can't use that particular extract anymore.

Thank you very much.^^ To tell you the truth, the only reason they're really clear is because I have no skill whatsoever in making the kind of sigs that you usually see in the forum. I just try to hide that fact by making uber simple sigs.lol. Well, the secret's out.haha

Oh I forgot to add. Gomene people, as I am currently swamped with college homework, I won't be making sigs in a while. Just thought I'd let you all know that.^^

I'd love to change it but as I posted earlier, I accidentally saved the flattened version of that one.>< Let me explain the lack of text though.lol. I couldn't think of anything to put since it was supposed to be in a contest. Usually I put stuff in depending on who requests the sig and whatnot.

Well, I've been seeing you for quite a while now and I got really interested in your Hitsugaya sig. I was just looking around the Signature and Avatars Forum when I saw your thread and decided to stop by.

I was looking for your latest sigs but I guess I can't find them in page 3. So, I got by this one here.



http://www.animeforum.com/image/6013246e0dbfe4eb2e.jpg


Okay, let's see. So, let's start at the image quality. The quality is excellent! The image is very clear and solid. The border is just right. It isn't too bold and the color white fits in well.

The stock is KAWAII!!!! And I love the way you blended things around. The style fits in nicely and the effects turned out great! The font color might have been changed, though. It's too much alike with the BG color.

Ah gomene, not much time to do updates yet. I did make another one though that was again supposed to be my entry. But it got rejected again.haha. My definition of chibi, I think, was wrong again.^^'

Thanks for the CndC, these comments really help me improve my works. I did kinda think the font would be a little hard to see, but any darker would have clashed with the overall colour scheme, so I just added an outer glow. It's not much, but it helps a bit.^^

And finally, an update. This was inspired a little by unli's tutorial so credit goes to her.

Gintara if you're looking, gomene for using the same extract as your previous sig. I was rushed for an extract and that was the best I could get at planet renders on that day.

So what do you people think?

Haha. I know what you mean. It kinda does look packed all in together.^^' I don't know how I pulled that off but there you go.XD

Finally a small update. A little bit of creativity flowed over after I finished my wallpaper contest entry and it resulted into my very first ever fan button.Hooray!haha. If you're wondering why it looks that way it's coz, I dunno, I felt like doing one like that.^^'

http://www.animeforum.com/image/6013246f0bbaaa5e9c.jpg

*edit*

After I slept on it, I realized my previous fan button really wasn't that good.^^' So I decided to make a new one. Something more in tune with my style.haha. Not much though since there's only so much you can do in a 50x120 canvas.

I tried to experiment with some new stuff. Background style's still kinda the same though. It's easier for me that way.haha.XD I'm hoping she likes it.

Any comments?^^

Oh I like the new set its different from your usual bg but it still has a touch of your style but I wont be able to tell if its yours more like a little bit of your style and a little something else(i know i'm blabbering but I hope you get what I mean T_T) i like the two simple colours in the bg and the scalines make it really pretty the font coould have been a different colour or its just my obssession with keeping everything uniform.so really...it looks great^^

KuroTan
09-21-2007, 12:10 AM
Thanks Mira! Oh, and I saw your entry in the wallpaper contest so good luck with that.^^

Well, I didn't really do anything new. Still working on a request that I'm really into since I'm really liking the theme.^^

I thought I'd post my old sig. One of my favourites because I'm a fan of card captor sakura plus I'm pretty proud of how the whole flowery thing came out.^^

http://www.animeforum.com/image/60132469420b161c97.jpg

I attached the original so you can see what I changed. I had to expand the flowers and stuff. Comments on an old sig?^^

Aww...Its so adorable.I like the effects you used on the sig makes it very dreamy XD.I also like the font it suits the picture.The flower thing turned out well too,usually it comes out pixelled if you try expanding it but yours turned out great.Great sig^^

It's cute and looks so romantic. The colors are simple but well blended. The choice of font was a very good one and I really like it! The flowers... they were well placed. Considering you expanded them, you did a fairly great job!

When you made the fontsize of 'sakura' bigger than the rest, I think it was a good thing. The font color is alright and maybe because of the glowing effects that they came out readable or something like that.

KuroTan
09-21-2007, 07:53 AM
Thanks everyone.^^ Well, when I say I expanded it, I meant I copied the flowers, then pasted it. Flipped it vertically and then I copied it again then placed it in to make one bouquet. Uh... Hope you understood that.^^' I'm thinking maybe I'll make a tutorial one of these days for the people who need to expand certain things for a sig and they don't want it to come out pixelated. Thanks again everyone.^^

Eeps >.< So many updates that I've missed from your signature work.
All your latest work looks simply amazing and your style has changed so much from earlier works, in my opinion anyway but that's maybe just me. I loved the set you did for Kitsune Girl the best though because it all fits so well together and the way you have done the two sections stand out is a very nice touch, that's if I had to choose a favourite but they are all really awesome. Keep up the good work ^-^

Thanks sis!^^ If you want the button you save it to your computer then upload it to your sig. Or you can just copy paste this one. It's where I uploaded my button.

Hey hey ^^ Since you've been so kind to comment my stuffs, I thought I'd drop in here and do the same =3

I'm liking your style, nothing over the top but some well done simplicity and good color schemes ^_^ I notice you like to repeat images in your sigs, which is always a nice effect when done properly, which you do.

To comment on your last couple.. the tsubasa chronicles one is gorgeous! The text though imo, sort of merges with the background.. the color perhaps could be different to make it stand out more. As for your last post, the L sig is very well done also! Having his hand going out of the sig is a nice touch, rly clever ^^ The av though.. well I'm not that big of a fan of avs just cut from sigs. It is still a nice set altogether, I'm sure Darkie~chan will love it ^_^

All in all a great bunch here, keep it up!

I want to eat all your sets. Seriously. I'm in love with these and I can't believe I've never noticed this thread. *In Awe* [You have to give me a hug to get me out of my state of awe]

Avvyyyy:
I'd flip the face and move it up some. Or perhaps have him look down from the top left corner to the bottom right corner. And I'd make the border thicker. And I'd put Darkie on there somewhere. But I really love it. Cute avvy.

Siggehhhh:
L!!!!!!!
I want a ticket. Yes I do. I'm in love with that siggeh. Its so cute and awesome and music ticket and wow! I love the crisp clear-ness of it. Wow. Adorable. I want it.

09-23-2007, 09:55 PM
I like the new set. L is popular today i see lol. I love the extraction you used. The text in my opinion fits it perfect. The avie though i think could use a tad more work. Its cool just seems like its missing something cant put my finger on it though. One thing not sure if it had a border that could be it. Still they both are really good.

KuroTan

Jagan: *hug* Hope you're back to normal now.XD Thanks!
MysticFairy: He sure is.haha. Thanks very much.^^

Since a lot of you commented on the avi, I decided to make an alternate one.I'll be honest, I just took my black L and used the paint bucket on it. Thanks for all the constructive criticism people.^^

http://www.animeforum.com/image/6013246f7328317644.jpg

Kinda a huge leap again from my style. I downloaded a few brushes and I wanted to try it out. What do you think?

Oh, and random info, I listened to L's theme again and again the whole time when I was doing that set. That was kinda awesome, like I have my own bgm.haha. I'm easily pleased.XD

*edit: And could anyone tell me what a gif style is? I've been seeing it a lot in the sig request thread.^^'

L set:L is my all time favourite charcater and I really cant say anything is wrong with it.I love it.and since you changed the avatar too its perfect.The bg is your style and funnyXD.
Ginx set:I love the grayscale effect and the way you placed the text.Pretty good.^_^
Scorpion set:its different and pretty good but you could have done something about the fire maybe masked it a bit.But its still good and again the text placing is good.
Guyver_mk set is also great I like how the bg is subtle and the image is focused on.
overall...you make them good XD

Tha Veile Ladie*~: Thanks. That was a little back to my roots stuff. I find that that's the easiest way (for me) to make a good set.

Now for an update. I'm supposed to be making a request but I can't think of anything to go with the pic so I'm putting it on hold for now. This one is a sig I made for another forum I go to called sswars. (Actually it's a webcomic too made by our very own Mia-MOS and LadyPSerenity. Just thought I'd plug that in.^^)

Maybe they're saying they wanted an animated sig which is in .gif format^^

Anyhow, 'bout your latest creations *takes a deep breath*:
I like how you made the "I got your back covered" text. It's REALLY nice! It's got spunk!^^:cool:

As for the L siggy...well, as an admirer of L, seeing him portrayed that way, well, i don't really know what to think ^.^; so I'll pass commenting on that one :unsure:

hmmm, about the "L" avi... it kinnda looks like a tile from scrabble in old text font, but maybe that's just me...^.^; how 'bout inverting the colors, adding static to the piece, adding a little randomness to the letter "L" so it does look too crisp...:p

...about the catch phrase in the Ginx sig, where you used a play of black-white-gray... there's more of the whitish gray part so about the darkness part... you were aiming for irony, maybe?

well, these are just my opinion/suggestion though... as they say art is subjective...^^

But all in all, great job! Ganbare! Ang galing ng mga gawa po nyo ! ^.~

mikatsuki: Pilipino ka pala? Or maybe just someone who speaks Tagalog.^^' Thanks. I kinda like L like that.haha. Him with his mannerisms an all, it's nice to see him let loose from time to time.XD For the avi, as I said, I just used the L I had and inverted the colour. I'm too lazy to completely remake a new one.lol. For the Ginx, the "Darkness" bit was a request so I had to put it in. I thought making it b/w would support that line, but I guess it did kinda came out too bright. That usually happens when I experiment with new stuff. They usually go too far.^^' Anyway thanks for the CndC. It's really helpful.

Nothing much today, I still haven't filled in the request. It'll probably be pushed next week because of the sig master contest plus I have my own personal project to do. Sorry requestee.^^'

Here's my sigmaster entry by request.

Wheee!!! It's sooo kawaii! It was actually one of the sigs I had in mind of voting for.

It has very great quality, and the simple broder totally makes it better! I love the effects and all and the size isn't that small, though it's not what I totally go with. making the text like that was a nice one though I personally think you could have made it more readable by changing the fonT!

Its okay, I was just looking forward to what you had to say♥

Naruto is uber kawaii!!!! *Totally loves the raman*
I actually like the font you wrote ag.net in. It compliments Naruto very well, so I give this one a 4 out of 5 hearts. You know...I don't even remember seeing this one of the voting thread. Probably because I'm weird and I don't notice things until its too late. After FlashD posted the winners I was like, YESSSS!!!! baka_black made it tooo!!! So then I went to go see which one yours was, and I was like, Whoa!!! Its soooo cute!!! I didn't even notice it before.
So update with something. I'm getting anxious. Make something for ag.net if you have to. ♥

hinata: Thanks very much. I thought it'd kinda go with the whole naruto ninja thing but I do admit, it looks a bit squished together.

Jaggy: Why thank you.^^ I didn't even realize that the kadaj one was yours until I got to thinking that it matched up with your style. I guess we're equal on that.lol.

As requested, I have an update. One is an old, old request from Katsy. I really had no idea what to do with the extract so in the end, I just experimented.

sig:

http://i225.photobucket.com/albums/dd291/kuya_vinchi/katsy_sig.jpg

Not my strongest sig, but what do you think?

And a new set I made for myself. I wasn't really planning on making one but after my death note volume 6-9 came in the mail today, and after I read volume 7 (why...Im so so so sad.;_; ) I felt compelled to do one. It's pretty dark compared to most of my work though. Probably cause I was still reeling from the shock.

Did not notice the updates, but yes!!!!

Your Queen siggy is simple and I like that. It makes the signature look classy. The text also matches the whole thing though I do believe that if you made the border a tiny bit more noticeable, it would add a little more emphasis on the signature. Overall, its done very nicely. Good job.

L!!! I love the inverted avatar. It has a very good effect on it. I super love it!!! Its really cute too.

The siggeh!! Very very very in love with this one I am. Yehps. I love the way that L is in the background munching on chips and the color was done extremely nicely. I love the text. And the border is nice because its kinda thick but not really and it really defines the whole thing. LOVE IT VINNEH!!! ♥

Big thanks to Serated for the awesome extract!^^ Small note, I really wasn't going to make an avi but I thought I might as well make a set so I just copy pasted from the original sig. Feel free to take it if you want, I can easily replace the name. What do you think?

*edit* Just realized that the border blends with the forum's bg.^^'

So awesome man, honestly you should teach me on the basics of Adobe. I know it's not hard, but when I see people do their work they make it look soo easy. I just don't know how to get the render on the first layer, but I know the copy and paste trick. Anyways, I am not sure if that's going to do anything. Again, verry good art sigs. Hahaha, thanks for using my signiture. I still love this sig!

10-12-2007, 07:53 AM
Yay a new set(I say that everytime dont I?)
Well the extract is awesome good choice.You used a different bg and it is really good.The scanline is a good idea.But the little pink space under the name part is a little setting off.Maybe you could make it like the avatar(bottom blue.)I love it though and the funny quote tooXD

superb hallow ichigo sig! yeah, the yellow eyes really "painted the eyes of the dragon" so to speak. nice touch. the sig captured the tension and madness within and the yellow eyes just caps it all off snugly and convincingly. sugoi! no complains here...lol... great work! Ganbare!

Comment time!!! When did I last come here??? Anyways...

Avy: As you said, you just copied and pasted it from the sig. Although you did rotate horizontally the image. It's simple, but the image stands out. Fine quality and all. It's great!

Sig: Still, the BG is simple but that's what makes the stock stand out. The glowing effects on the image and the text attracts more attention from me. The quality is super great! The text is readable. Changing the font in the word, 'about' I think makes it seem more 'unsimple' or so. But, I don't go with you in your idea of changing the fotns in your name at the bottom. The 'black' isn't so clear and so. But, overall, it's great!



*edit* Just realized that the border blends with the forum's bg.^^'


True!!! But, I can still see it and it's fine. It's simple but it gives the attention to the sig so, I like the way you did it!

Ryu: Thanks man. There are a lot of decent tutorials out there to help beginners start out. I made one too in the Editing Tips and Tutorials section in case you want to check it out. And you're welcome.^^

shougo: Thanks very much. I'll change it probably by the next update because it completely slipped my mind and the laptop that has my photoshop is off right now.^^'

mikatsuki: Thanks. Nice to hear that.=]

Xaloth: Nah it's ok. School's important. Glad you liked it.

hatoko hinata: Thanks for the CndC.^^ I'll post the remade one by the next update coz as I said, it slipped my mind. Sorry 'bout that.^^'

Rikku: haha. They are quite big aren't they.^^' I'm kinda used to that now. Sometimes it works when I have to put a lot but sometimes it doesn't. Still, I'm sticking to it. Thanks.=]

Now the update. First one was a request from bulmagenious though, I'll be honest with you, I didn't do anything with it. The only thing I did was put it in the canvas and add the font. Requestee's instructions were pretty specific.^^'

Hmm...I like Blue Baron's signature, although...Not to be mean, just a little bit some more abstract to it. Maybe some abstract brushes from Deviantart perhaps?

However, beer mace? though I get what you're saying--I don't see the beer bottle or is it just my monitor? ...black bottle against black bg ^.^;

On the other hand, brightening up the bg on the "W" sig was a good idea since it now goes with the char's smile...XD

The remade one: The stock is soo kawaii and the glowing part makes it more attractive. The text is readable and the font is itneresting for me. It's cute overall and better than the first, I should say.

The Avy: The simple BG and simple border directs the attention straight to the stock. It's good for a simple one.

The Sig: Again, it's a simple BG which blends well with the stock. The font you used and the size of the text makes it look so hilarious. Since they are all in the same font and color, I feel like the character is speaking in a monotone voice. (I find people speaking in monotone quite funny! :D)

KuroTan
10-27-2007, 12:39 AM
@ mikatsuki: Thanks. It was bear mace. He's holding it in his hand. It's a south park reference. There was one episode where the character said that line.^^'
@ shougo: Thanks very much. That's definitely one of my more simpler sigs.
@ hatoko hinata: Thank you very much. Glad you found them nice, It makes all the work worth it.=]

Your current siggy.. Its pretty plain yet scary. A match for the season like you wrote.^^ Then about the older siggies.. I think some of the fonts use for the texts has something missing about it. I just don't know how to point it out.
Anyway.. Keep it up!!

I usually forget to put borders on my animated sigs too--too caught up with the animation XD

11-01-2007, 11:29 PM
@ mikatsuki: Yea, I was kinda wondering how I'd incorporate the border into 15 or 16 different frames. But then it hit me when I was about halfway through and by then I was too lazy to go back and redo it again.haha.=b Thanks though. I'll probably be away during Christmas so I don't know if I'll be making one. If I do I'll definitely post it here though, no worries about that.^^

@ Mini: Thank you. Hope that put you in a Happy Halloween mood when you saw it.lol.

@ Zumitron: =o. Thank you for the dimsims.haha. I go trick or treating and I get that instead of candy.=b Thanks!

@ DarkBalance: Thanks very much. Glad you like it. The girl can be either from the grudge or the ring or even, dare I say it, the wig. >.> lol.

Maybe if you surrounded it with other bright colours it wouldn't make so much of a retina overload? Or try and put some sort of screening layer over it?

I really like the depth of the background, very nice!

11-03-2007, 01:36 AM
That's really not a bad signature there BB. The quote is perfect for the scenario, but in my opinion, I think the background doesn't fit the feel of the extract. After all, they are about to dance, but the background makes it seem like there's action...in my opinion. But the placement is great! Try a remaster. That's what I keep doing. =D

Bragi
11-03-2007, 09:02 AM
Ahh... Now I see why you put glows in it. Yuki kinda looks flat. lol...What if you dupe the layer then overlay a color to kinda push him outwards from the BG. well, its just a suggestion. hehe!

anyways, the Bleach sig is cute! I love the quote BTW, "The world can wait for one dance" , kinda makes me smile there. haha!

@ shougo: Thanks very much. The avatar was actually not very well thought out. I didn't really know what to do with it so I just did an "Are?" thing that Fai in tsubasa always seems to say and I thought was fitting for the sig's expression.^^'

Just a crazy thought, I don't know how it would turn out, but what do you think would happen if you used a black 1 pixel border thats really thin for the sig. Because the white is really attention grabbing, but I don't know. It looks fine as it is. I love it. ♥

Update time. I just wanted to try out my CS3 so I decided to take a request from the request thread. This one's for Kitsune~girl.

@ Sasuke: It's still basically Photoshop, though a lot more niftier than my old CS.^^ Plus it's in my new laptop so it's much more convenient for me now to make sigs. Haha. Not your fault. The border was only 1px and sorta blended with the avi. Sorry bout that. But I'm glad you love it.=]

@ Dopam1ne: I see your point.^^ I'm in a kinda make everything glow sorta phase so for that set, it started out light, plus I made it even lighter and ended up with a rather bright looking set and lost some colour in the process.^^' Thanks though.

Another update. They're just rolling out of my laptop one by one.lol. This is a gift for Serated who made me an awesome sig. It's not as good as the ones he makes but I hope it'l do.^^'

This signature has the syndrom of the popping head. I mean, there is only a head there. Avoid that from now on. Make the render smaller or nudge it up so the neck and some of Ulquiorra trunk is shown.
The b/g is pretty plain and the text is... overwhelming. I like the lightning and the render you used.

Keep it up.

KuroTan
11-04-2007, 05:04 PM
Remedied the text, though I think I'll keep the other stuff as it is. I was trying to put the focus into his expression which is why I just put his head in. The render was a complete accident.^^' At first there was supposed to be two extracts in but as I was playing with the blending of the first one it accidentally exploded into a mass of white. It came out pretty well so I thought I'd keep it. THanks for the CndC. Much appreciated.=]

Remade version:This ones better much better.The white border works wonders for the set.It balances the blue and the orange.The circles are great.I cant decide which font is better both this one and the previous text effects are both good.
Misa set:Another deathnote set ^^ This one is a lot different from your usual style.I like the text brushes you used and the two white parts across are great.The brightness is just right.The first avatar is kinda cuteXD
Serated set:Simple and has a great dark feel to it...Love it.The light at the bottom right gives this creepy feel and the font choice is great.^^

Eek! Awesome siggy for Kitsune Girl! I love the colors and the background, and the extract and the avvies (especially the first one)! It came out great! It's very pretty with the lighting and lighter colors.

The Bleach sig is nice too, though the head is a bit overwhelming. However, I like the placement of the text - like you said, it takes away some of the largeness. Very nice - I like the black and white. *hits self for lurking* Can't wait for more! <3

@ Mira: Thanks very much. The one for Kitsune took some time for the idea to flesh out (I was thinking along the lines of putting in scraps of the death note) but it came out pretty well. I appreciate the CndC.=]

Uhm... I won't be updating in a while. I'l be focusing on wallpapers and such. I'll still be taking requests though, I'll just lessen the number of sigs I do for fun.

Hah. I said I wouldn't update and yet here I am.^^' Well, made a new one for myself. Very plain in my opinion but I think it suits the set well, though I dunno. What do you think?

The latest set is cute. The lighting is consistent though the text color of used font recedes through the background. I think it's better to use a complimentary color for the text rather than using a monochrome tone. Still, nice job! Keep it up!

Thanks. I'll keep that in mind next time.^_^

New one. So fast you ask? Well, I've been getting some grief over my latest one (Though not really sure why seeing as everyone else does it. >_>) so new one.

You give no time too comment, Vinny. Lol.

I love the 2 new sets.

The cute one:
AHW! Its adorable. I love the avatar and the sig and how simple they are. The text compliments them well. I think they are amazing. Its so sweet and adorable. I love the text. Its sooooo cute. I like the plain color you used and how the flower is purple. Its amazingly done.

The Tsubasa one:
The avatar is slightly blurry and I think you could rotate it to the left a little. The background that matches the avatar is amazing. I still think you should put your initials in the corner. Overall, its nice.
The siggy is great. I love the text and the background and everything. Though I do believe that the white outline around Syaoran makes him look like a cutout. Maybe you should just have a dark shadow around him? Overall, very nice. I love it. Good good good. Your amazing Vinny!

@ Jagan: I'm glad you loved both of them.^_^ Idhave liked to use the first one longer but people seem to not like the idea of me ripping of deviant art so, meh. Thanks for the avatar advice, I'll use that for the remade one. Though some of the bluriness is due to the fact that that is a reflection in the water. But I'll try my best. Thanks!=D

@ Hieko: Thank you.=] And good luck with the set making. Best advice I can give (cliche as it may be) is find your own style because you can only go so far copying others before it gets boring. I sure hope that made sense.^_^

@ jose: Thanks man. I'm glad you liked both of them. Sorry I haven't repped you since halloween. It's taking time for me before I can get back to you again. But I'll start spreading them out so that won't be a problem anymore.Again, thanks.=D

The first sig is super kawaii! I love the color fading to the right, and the avvy fits really well. The second sig is good too. I like the text and the stroke around the extract. Great sigs! <3

KuroTan
11-11-2007, 04:40 PM
Thanks Mira. Much appreciated.=D

And new one. Hooray for the three day weekend.^_^ Took the advice and changed it accordingly. Changed the sig's blending mode to complement the avi more. Though just for fun I put it in as B squared instead of BB.^^;

The kawaii set: Can I hug that set? seriously>_< its too cuuuute.Simple bg and soo very cute.Its cute,sparkly and did I mention cute? I would say more about it but at the cost of my self esteem so I'll refrain from going shiny eyed.
Tsubasa set:
I love the red abstract bg and the stroke on the image.The name on the avatar is funny XD but it looks a little blurred maybe? still awesome set.
sorry for the late update...can't believe I dint comment sooner on the cute(aack>_<) set.

Thanks shougo.^_^ And it's not your fault. I updated on that set in less than a day so the blame is on me. Sorry about that.

I just basically built on my most recent set. So cool! The only catch is that someone has to keep clicking on my sigs every fourteen days so I get to keep it for another fourteen days. Uhm... would anyone want to do that? Please?^^'

Hey, Vinny.

I like the avvy. Its really cute. I like the whole using three face halves. It amazes me. The Fai signature is incredible. I like the colors you used and Fai coming out from behind himself is a nice effect. I also love how the text just works so well with the sig and its so apart of it. I think its very good. The background was done very nicely and the thin border really compliments it. Incredibly amazling. The Kurogane one is good except I think the image of Kurogane needs to be a little more sharpened. I like the simple background but I do think it needs a little more darkness in it. And as always, the text is amazingly well fit into the background. I think its awesome Vinny.

Love all the Tsubasa-ness. You should make a Mokona one next. Lol. And then Sakura and then the Time Witch. LOL. ♥

Keep up the awesome siggies!

And now for my return gifts. These were experiments on transparency, i thought it'd be neat to try it out. I hope Zumi and angelic likes them.^^

Awesome sigs - the transparencies came out really clearly and non-pixellated, which I've seen a lot of with other transparent sigs. The style is really cool too - I especially like Angelic's. Great sigs! XD

12-20-2007, 06:32 AM
Awesome holiday sigs! As one would expect from one of the best sig makers here in AF! *nod* *nod*

I really adore my gift! Thanks so much! XD

Those are a really nice play with transparent bgs... I think your choices of those flowing brushes are befitting the characters... esp the one's on the Shakugan no Shana sig. Plus the fonts you've used are curiously kawaii! The sweet school girl theme on the sig for angelic looks so charmingly calming...^_^

Your sabbatical definitely hasn't rusted your CS3 magic! LOL ^.^

KuroTan
12-20-2007, 08:35 PM
@ Mira: Thanks! Credit goes to the one who extracted it though, they did a really good job so it wouldn't show all pixelated.^^

@ mikatsuki: Thanks for the compliment.^^ But I wouldn't say I'm one of the best, I'm just one of the people who makes sets here in AF.^-^

And now for another gift for angelic, because the other one came out too big that it's pushing Mira's lovely sig out of the picture. Gomene Mira for that.^^;

Blackie ~ ♥ 

The latest set you made for Angelic is pretty, and the colors go really well together, and the character is pretty too. I like how the background's blurred, brings out the character and the text more.

Overall it's a very nice siggy. :3

P.S; Iabsolutely<3themygift

@ Zumi: You make me blush Zumi. xb Thank you. And thanks for the dimsims, I'll keep them in the fridge and open it up on Christmas day. That way if Santa doesn't come I'll still have a gift to open.^-^

And just in passing, my flight's tomorrow. Yay.^^; So I'll see you all when I come back and I hope you all have an awesome holiday.

Ahwww, Vinny is back.

I like this siggy. Its very original and has this "baka" [not idiot baka] feeling to it. I still think you should add BB or something to the avvy, but otherwise, it is quite wonderful.l The text in the siggy is lovely and the black box around it was a good idea. The background is still kinda empty. Not sure what could fill it, but I guess maybe Ichigo could be "saying" something? Ichigo looks like a newspaper cutout and I like that. Its neat how you did that. The background doesn't suit the newspaper cut out theme very well though. Overall, nice and glad to see you back.

KuroTan

02-17-2008, 06:55 PM
Ahw, really? You took my advice? YAY!

Hmmm, perhaps the text-less avvy is better?
The sig is so much more completed feeling now. I love the text you used, the font, the placement, the color, the saying, everything is so perfect. I love it. And I can't say anything more, because I love it. I was browsing and my brother saw your siggy and he made me stop so he could stare at it, he really liked it. xD

I Luff Ichigo!
(You get free reps because you made a Ichigo siggy)

Anyway I Luff the BG and the Render of courses.The colors go along well and the text and textplacemnt rule.

I like the avi with or without text(meee opinion)

Nice jobzzzz^^

Avi: It's very good. But I'd say, may takign our the "B2" would fit the style more. Or just changing the font would make it look better, I guess.

Sig: It's so attractive! Good borders. The effects were used well. The image fits the quote, I must say! I lvoe the font and the fotn color is fitting. The text placement is the best it can be. Maybe it coudl have been betetr if your name was placed mroe to the right and a bit smaller. But I geuss it's still great the way it is.

Erm... I'd like to apologize for not replying. I vaguely remember thinking I'd reply by the next time I put up a set but since I sorta stayed away from sets for a month, my replies are probably way overdue. My bad.^^;

Anyway, I'd like to thank everyone who replied. They help. They really do. Much appreciated.^-^

First set was a request from jose101. I'd like to apologize in advance for this man, I couldn't get a good extract and it kinda came out a tad bit horrible. You don't need to use it if you don't want to. I could make you another one to make up for it though. Just tell me, I'll try to make a better job on it.

Next is a return gift for angelic as thanks for the Lelouch sig I'm using. Thanks again for that, I really appreciate it. Hope you like this one.^^ *edit* Oh, and I forgot to credit Sera for the amazing extract. Thanks man. *edit*

Last is a gift to Mika for winning a little guessing game in YM. She said she wanted a Hitsugaya sig with a Diamond Dust Rebellion theme, which took me a while to figure out how to exactly pull off since I've only ever seen the trailers. In the end I figured I'll just slap in a Vizard since I remember seeing them in the trailer. Anyway, hope it turned out alright.

I like how you did that, used a brush over a clear layer. in png you can maintain a semi transparent layer... I got ideas now.

KuroTan

Thanks. You can get transparent bg with both png ang gif formats. Though gif tends to be a very lossy format, best use it for big blocks of colour.

demonplight
03-15-2008, 11:01 PM
I think .PNG is all around superior. that is why I use them. but I am still trying to figure out what people mean when they say I need to work on blending. any idea?

KuroTan
03-15-2008, 11:22 PM
Blending is how all the different elements in your set go together. Like does the bg go well with the stock? Is there an element that just jumps out as wrong or striking? Stuff like that. I ususally get around blending by just blending the bg.^^

well I try just to match a theme, color for color, pattern and so on. but I also like the characters to stand out. I like the BG just to add to the char. not to be apart of it. you know use color to make an emotion. and such. well I try.
