View Full Version : Serated's Works

04-17-2007, 06:44 AM
Give me your opinions for this noob. I added a vertical signature that got a nice review.







I added some more, any comments at all?

04-29-2007, 02:26 PM
Some new ones. I havent decided what to put in for the text on one of them, i just made it to fit my current mood.

04-30-2007, 05:06 AM
Wow. I like them both, really great colors used, no awkwardness. Well done. Your second sig is similar to the art on aarinfantasy^^where do you find the pics from? *they are really nice~*

The first one does look a little blank without words. Hope you find something to put on it>.<

Good luck and nice work~!

04-30-2007, 08:37 AM
its totally adorable, i really like the first one!! its so cute!!
the word's... cute! hehe..!! n_n

04-30-2007, 02:45 PM
I should probably note that they are both crying, and the stocks, i found the first one here, the second my friend just knows the guy that drew it.

05-13-2007, 01:11 AM
Heres some more stuff stored up in hard drive.




05-13-2007, 05:17 AM
Is calling yourself noob a joke? n__n Because it's not funny xDD ! Haha, your works are sooo awesime! I love the Cloud signature and the Kenpachi one <3 I was going to make a signature with just THAT picture of him but meh... I shall reconsider ._.

Keep the good work up!

05-13-2007, 01:26 PM
On a side note, if I am not wearing the signature, i can change the text to fit your needs so you can wear it. Heres some more, all of them are gifts to people on a different site though.




05-26-2007, 06:13 PM
For the first post: the first sig: That frikin awesome!!
the second one : I really do like that!
Your Roxas sig : Its nice!! but some parts of Roxas's hair is a bit too solid...but other than that its extremely good ^^
All of your sig in the last post are incredible!! You even made a leopard(is it?) look good! Azathoth is incredible!! but maybe blur a bit, the tail (maybe?)
Hope to see more!

05-26-2007, 06:38 PM
uhhmm... how can you call yourself a noob ??? *confuzzeld*
I really like your sig... no negatives here to throw around ;)

05-26-2007, 08:20 PM



More for your wondrous enjoyment.

06-04-2007, 05:10 PM
love the enter creation, i like everything about that sig except for the dark color in that lil box on the side

06-04-2007, 06:59 PM
Hmmm i had to double check to make sure there wasnt more then one page. i am suprised there aren't more comments. i love your sigs. They all look very nice and blended well. Love the coloring and effects. Good job and keep up the good work. :D

06-05-2007, 12:56 AM
Well, i just got back from vacation, and I am still taking requests just in case i run out of ideas to use. I will also be putting "YourName" in some signatures in case I want some one to wear them around.

More stuff:




06-05-2007, 01:39 AM
liking the 2nd sig u made for lucky sakura, the effects on the image blend in well with the bg

Beyond The Grave
06-05-2007, 05:14 AM
Who's the kitty in the first one? It looks too adorable^^

Serated your sigs are well to be appreciated and respected by I must say, but the one thing that I see that seems to come up in almost every sig is the lightning of them all. Too much of the light is really kinda blinding the focal points and some of the focal points have too much of the C4D or what ever you use still showing on them so it doesn't really look right >.>

But I'm still a fan of your works and I like them so keep'em coming!

06-27-2007, 05:16 AM
Anyone want these before i delete them?



06-27-2007, 09:01 AM
The Primula sig got my attention ^^. i liked how it looked! Dont know why though.... good job!
the "Serated innocence" Looked awesome! i like the fox[?] in the middle there

06-27-2007, 09:23 AM
megami are right.. you are such extremely good..the effects..colour..anything.. perfect.!!

06-27-2007, 01:05 PM
they look very good....great job...i like the colors and the charas......

Mira Kaiba
06-27-2007, 02:12 PM
Woah, I hadn't seen this before. Your stuff is awesome, Serated! ^_^ I love the blending and the colors, especially on the first ones - love the one of Cloud! I also liked the ones for Lucky Sharingan Sakura. I wanna see more! ;p

07-05-2007, 04:16 PM
Two new ones:



I did a tutorial on the Kaede one if anyone is interested.

07-07-2007, 02:37 PM
Serated, you're one of the most excellent Sig makers I've seen, Good GFX and I come from a place where a lot of GFX is made. Excellent work.

07-08-2007, 06:18 PM
those are really good sigs. The colors blend in very good and they have a good feal to them.

07-10-2007, 04:37 AM
I am working on a little picture right now that says Serated fan because people have asked me to do so. On another site that is. But of course i will make one for here too.

07-10-2007, 02:23 PM
your sigs are amazing. I wish i could do that stuff that you do in the background. About that tut you sent do you have to register to that site before you can download it. I also think you should make more of them. All your sigs have such awesome effects. i have a hard time with text unless most people here who are awesome with text. cant find any tuts though. Anyway nice work.

07-10-2007, 03:27 PM
Great works!
Very well blended and great colors.
I was wondering if you use C4ds in any of your sigs to get that insane texture, or are you just a super-human?

Beyond The Grave
07-10-2007, 07:14 PM
Anyone want these before i delete them?


http://img168.imageshack.us/img168/8724/primulakj4.pngHey I'll take the top one if ya don't mind, I would love to sport some of your work since I'm a fan and It'll keep me occupied until I can sport cha fan button^^ I might just want the bottom one aswell....

07-11-2007, 03:23 AM
Unfortunately, some one beat you to the top one.

07-11-2007, 04:24 AM
I wish I could make Signatures. .___.;
But,Unfortunatly,I don't know how.
Anyway,I LoveYour work.
...I was thinking of asking you about A signature for Myself but,I'm to shy to ask. ;>////>
Just keep up the great work and,Someday you shall be famous!

07-11-2007, 01:56 PM
Go right ahead, send me a PM of your request. I havent gotten one in a while anyway. I finished the little fan buttons.



07-12-2007, 08:58 AM
Well, heres two more. One was a request, although the requester has not gotten around to wearing it yet. The other is soon going to be part of a wallpaper for those fans of Shuffle!



07-12-2007, 11:41 AM
Those are amazing! I like the colors you chose and the blue in them is awesome! I love your sigs.

07-12-2007, 12:06 PM
again nice siggies. Love the Hitsugaya one. Very nice work yet again. Oh i grabbed a fan button by the way :P

07-13-2007, 08:08 AM
Newest one, i made two versions. Done via request.



07-13-2007, 08:58 AM
Yes you are one of the best thats for sure. I love it. Thank you soooooooo much. :D I think you just made my Itachi obsession worse lol.

07-17-2007, 12:24 PM
The second and third signatures for the Shuffle Wall are done. I hate painting houses!!!



07-17-2007, 03:46 PM
Very nice and cute. I like how you do that paint splatter effect. Colors match nicely and love the text. Second one seems a little blurry though. They still look good. Nice work yet again. :)

07-17-2007, 05:22 PM
Ah, this is good stuff. :3
I see your backgrounds and blending are perfect, awesome, keep it up.
The text on a few.. hmm, dunno.. on some of them the text doesn't look right. Like the second one in your latest post, the text looks a little off.
Other than that, all I can say is, great work,
and ouh, I see an Ulquiorra fanbutton XD <3~
Keep it up. x]

07-30-2007, 08:38 PM
Siggie Spam time.









Mira Kaiba
07-31-2007, 12:41 AM
Cool, I love the new sigs, especially the Fate Stay Night sig - the background and effects are fantastic. I also like the car sigs - the colors and blending are really nice. Keep up the posts! ^^

08-18-2007, 07:17 PM
My 3 newest ones. All considered my best to date.




08-18-2007, 07:44 PM
I saw all your sigs from your first post up to now and i have to say they're all nice, I like how you do those background effects on your latest ones *are those C4d's or just brushes? or both? XD

Keep up the good work ^^

08-18-2007, 11:47 PM
I will hopefully be doing another tutorial, video that is. I havent decided on what signature though. But i am leaning towards the one with "Blane" in it.

09-04-2007, 04:03 PM
Meh..... My little spam of sigs.......











"Hes a Pirate" - Tiesto Remix
"Fighting in the Built Up Areas" - Ladytron
"Broken Sword" - Dieselboy

The songs that keep me sane while working on these.

09-04-2007, 04:14 PM
Ulquiorra Schiffer!!!!!!!!!!!!
my comment: amazing.... although you use the same idea for like 3 of them.... amazing.....

09-04-2007, 04:32 PM
Replace the sig with the car with a Nissan Skyline.

09-04-2007, 04:59 PM
These are all great Serated...the same sigs that got me inspired. ^^

09-15-2007, 05:11 PM
More sigs.....









09-15-2007, 07:36 PM
Wow awesome sigs. I love the effects in all of them. Not to mention how clear they all are. My favorite is the fate stay night one.

09-15-2007, 08:05 PM
I kept searching and I am confused. Haven't I posted here before?0.o? I know I said something on the lines of "Yey, you finally posted them!" plus probably more after that sentence. But it's gone now...hmm...

Anyway, I guess I'll just post again.^^ Great sigs. I'm liking the creativity with the vertical sigs. That's thinking outside the box.lol. Keep it up.

Here's my proof that I did post here. Serated's Works 09-05-2007 10:10 AM keep them sigs coming!haha.XD -baka_black In case you think I'm making that up.

09-24-2007, 11:04 PM
Alright, i have more stuff up my sleeve today. I will try to keep this and my Blog updated once a week for you enjoyment.



I got this next one to move. So i feel just that much more special.



(First come, first served by the way)

09-25-2007, 12:03 AM
Well, I must kick myself for not finding this thread sooner. And here, I been keepin an eye on your extract thread, and never noticed a sig thread.
You have some nice sigs here. Some are more eye catching then others. Some kinda look to busy to me, but each of us have our own style, right? I must say, your techique is much better than mine, but of course I have barely learned as much as you have. Hope to see some more eye catching colorful sigs from ya.

09-25-2007, 01:03 AM
You have some absolutely fantastic signatures, I love the colours and effects you use and your vertical sigs are just downright nifty!

I was just wondering if you could make a Counter Strike sig with this image http://home.versanet.de/~tobias-menzel/images/Counter-Strike&#37;20Source.jpg it's the best I could find -_-

09-28-2007, 05:24 PM
im going to be honest
i haven't posted in your thread for awhile
and the last time i did, i was amazed
but your newest sigs have disappointed me
except you animation sig
animation sigs are tough to do, i will give you props to that

10-02-2007, 09:30 PM
Yeah, i have to admit that i havent been putting full effort into my signatures, but i havent found much time to greatly improve over what i already have.





Oh, and i have a logo for my render/extracts now. I hope i remember to pupt it in once and a while.


10-02-2007, 10:04 PM
Jeez, these are great Serated! I've been wondering if you were going to make a logo for your extractions. But I wonder though, is this a little based off of the Umbrella logo? It reminds me a lot of it. Well, they're really awesome. I'm simply in awe. Keep it up.

10-03-2007, 05:35 PM
Awesome stuff yet again. You have an amazing style of making sigs. It's like the characters jump out of them. My favourite's the autumn one, I kinda like those kinds of themes.=]

And I remember that Umbrella logo. I've got a few of those in my laptop just waiting to be used.haha. Keep it up!

10-04-2007, 04:47 AM
"Gingerbreadman", the animated sig an "beyond" are the best of the signatures you have made lately.

But overall your work is fantastic, you're at a level in sig making where I won't reach ^^

Keep up the grand work!

10-04-2007, 09:01 AM
Logo moved to http://www.animeforum.com/showthread.php?t=64771

10-04-2007, 04:27 PM
nothing more to say ecxept that your thread has vetran siggy maker written all over it

keep up the good work

Mira Kaiba
10-04-2007, 08:04 PM
Wow, your newest sigs are awesome! You're getting really great with the sort of abstract side of the sigs - I'm going to try some stuff with your Cloud tutorial. But I love the Beyond sig. It is by far my favorite. I also like the Big Sky sig. Keep them coming! XD

10-06-2007, 02:39 PM
2 new things...



10-06-2007, 04:05 PM
Wow, I love your SOTW, it's very wonderful, but I think the spring one kind of doesn't fit the background, but nonetheless it's excellent. Also the "Spark of Insanity" signature is really good as well. The text was obviously picked carefully as I see it, and it fit perfectly. It's all great Serated. =)

10-06-2007, 07:20 PM
Wow, very nice sigs. Instead of doing so many, take time and effort to mess around with them and improve. But they're good with your couple seconds signatures.

10-12-2007, 08:14 PM
Continuing this session of signatures with the following:







10-14-2007, 11:49 PM
So many updates and yet they still all look amazing. If it was me the level of consistency would probably have dropped around the third sig.^^'

My favourite has to be the halo one and the yoshi one not because the others are bad but because I like their characters.=] No criticisms really. They all look very well done.

10-15-2007, 10:08 PM
I'm totally loving the Halo sig and Yoshi sig from your last update! The blending is great, images are sharp, the text works well and the effects you used are nice ^_^ I like the sizes of them too, not usual sig sizes, which is nice because it gives them a more dramatic look. Anyhow, those two were my faves from your last update.

Alot of your signatures on this page though don't seem to showcase your full potential.. in fact they seem rather basic. Maybe you weren't putting your all in them like you did your others. All in all you're incredible w// sigs, and I can't wait to see more ^^

10-16-2007, 06:06 AM
the Fusion Spark and Ocrsdeath is KEWL!!
The Yoshi sig is damn cute, but the eye is a bit cut off.
hey, working with animation signature now, eh? :3
Sparks of Insanity is Wicked.
oh, Very Nice logo you got there.

10-17-2007, 11:30 PM
No anime this time around. But i like bot of these.



10-23-2007, 07:48 PM
Alright. I pulled out some new stuff.




These are free. I really dont want to delete them, so take them off my hands. First come, first served.



Same with these Avatars.



10-23-2007, 08:15 PM
These signatures are really, really awesome. But I won't stop there...

On the first sig of post #71, it's kind of hard to determine what's the focus of the sig is unless it's just another abstract signature, but I can tell that it's not really another one of them. Then again I could be wrong.

The second one is a great attempt, but I think the edges of it were a little too blurry, or too much glow, however I can understand, trying to fit the snow theme.

The only thing I can say about the third one is that the extract is a little choppy looking, but it's still good.

The last two are quite interesting, especially the Haruhi Suzimiya signature. I always loved those kind of signatures and style. Shows great depth and the little box with the eyes is a nice little touch. Well done. =D

The avatars are good, maybe a border though? Maybe try some transparencies.

Overall, keep it up Serated, and from now on, I'll try to give constructive criticism. Although it was hard for me to give some in the first place. XD Keep them coming.

11-02-2007, 04:45 PM
Well, guess what. Christmas has come early. I picked many people that have given me good feedback or are helping me out or say nice things about me. So I gift spammed all this week. I may have missed some people, so if I did, send me a PM and i will get on it right away.

Baka Black

Bucky Katt

Dark Balance

Kitsune Girl

Konata Izumi





If i missed you, send me a PM so I have something to work on this weekend.

11-02-2007, 05:15 PM
Wow, thank you so much Serated! I'll be sure to make you one too! (Actually I've been meaning to anyway. =D )

These are really good by the way...REALLY good.

11-02-2007, 06:08 PM
haha, amazing! I get an early Christmas present. Thanks very much Serated! Now I see what you were talking about yesterday.^^ They're so many I can't individually comment but they all showcase your brilliant talent so I'll leave it at that. Thanks again. Expect a present from me too. In fact, I'll probably follow your lead and make sigs for people in the forum too. =]

Konata Izumi
11-02-2007, 09:56 PM
Oh my gosh! Serated you are sosososo sweet. That's one of the cutest signatures ever! I shall use it immediately! <333

11-03-2007, 07:08 PM
i love ur sigs i cant believe u called ur self a noob! i had to read that twice i love ur tuts. i try to do the tuts but none of them come out as good as urs. i agree with insurgo

11-04-2007, 01:02 PM
Ahhh Serated thanks so much! I love mine!! Not only does it have KOS-MOS's awesomeniss in it, but you really did a great job!

I gotta say that you did really well on all of them o_O Hard to pick one that I think is the best, but you can definately be sure that I can't pick a bad one out of the bunch =D

I think this was a great idea, and I just might copy off of you and make some sigs as christmas gifts also ^_^

Thanks again! I'm glad you thought of me enough to make me one <3

11-18-2007, 01:04 PM
Not dead anymore.






11-18-2007, 01:26 PM
damned, i didnt use the sig yet >.>;;
yeaa~~ now im sparkling! >;3

(i just got a new screen, but it stretches, so my comments are limited in size...)

the Helghast sig stands out. The colors are brilliant! though, the lighting is a bit much imo.

The bottom sign of the update is excellent! i like the sharpness of the effects there. and the font choice is pretty good!

keep em coming >8D

11-21-2007, 05:01 PM
So i went back into the process of doing requests for improvements.







Mira Kaiba
11-22-2007, 12:34 AM
I really love your sigs! The backgrounds are incredible - the lighting is really nice, and your coloring is great. I think that the last sig for hollowichigo might be a bit oversharpened, but other than that, cool work. The "complete loyalty" sig is the best, imo. Keep making awesome sigs! ^^

12-05-2007, 11:36 PM
I only have one, and I made it for myself. Bu there will be a tutorial on it later.


12-08-2007, 01:14 PM
Awesome one Serated!^^ I like the effects! it's a nice work as expected to you! XD lol!

12-09-2007, 09:51 PM


Megami, if your by chance wandering around here, this is yours.


12-09-2007, 10:32 PM
I didnt see the gifts until just now! X3!!!

Awww, thankies s much Serated. I love my elf siggy =D

BTW, I LOVE that "choose wisely" sig. I love how its composed and how its monochromatic. Awesome job <33

12-09-2007, 10:45 PM
Its actually Nerine form Shuffle, but yeah. Too bad I wont win the Signature Contest i put that 'Choose Wisely' signautre into.

Mira Kaiba
12-09-2007, 11:17 PM
Yay, more great works from Serated! I love the "choose wisely" sig - the blending into the background is awesome! The text is also placed really well and I like the colors. The lighting is great on Megami's sig - I like the black and white - it's a nice affect. Pretty sigs! <3

12-24-2007, 11:53 PM
Its now officially Christmas in my book, or computer, whatever. I plotted out gifts a week ago. So i went around looks for extracts, renders, brushes, etc etc. What a waste. But, i learned a new style. Enjoy the gifts and non-gifts.










12-24-2007, 11:54 PM
All the rest. Gifts not for here:









^At this time i now look sort of like that^

12-25-2007, 12:22 PM
My Goodness these are all so excellent!
You must have been working so hard for these...
We all should be grateful to have Serated in our lovely forum. =)
I really can't say much or pick which one I like, because every single one of them is beautiful.
Oustanding Serated...can't wait to see more.
Jesus, I couldn't find mine for a while, and now I find it!
Thanks so much for it. ^^

12-25-2007, 04:44 PM
WOW those sigs in your last post.. they're amazing! The Porsche one, General Solomon one, and RMP ones are my favorites. The Porsche one is just awesome, I really like the placement of everything on the sig. In the General Solomon one I really like the grayscale look and the unique border, though I think the gray splatter in the lefthand side is a bit standoffish. As for the RMP sig, I think it's one of your best. The blending and colours are just perfect, great job.

Can't wait to see more! ^_^

12-28-2007, 01:39 PM
lol at the emoticon.^^ Thanks for the gift Sera. (Sorry I'm a little late, the internet hides in my neck of the woods.^^;) It looks absolutely superb. I love it.=]

12-28-2007, 03:08 PM

these two are pretty good. Try to make the renders and the tags smaller. Add more colours too, your tags tend to be too mono.


12-29-2007, 07:02 PM
^'Tis the favorite of nekogrl...;D

Me ish luvin' this one!!! Great job!!!
Of course, I love ALL of your creations. You are an idol to us all. *bow* :3

Mira Kaiba
12-29-2007, 07:31 PM
Oh, yay, thanks so much for the beautiful sig - I love it! All of your sigs are awesome, of course. The Gray Fox one is great, the image is kawaii! ^^ The effects on all of four sigs are great, and they are all so different - keep posting awesome sigs! XD

01-25-2008, 08:58 PM
Experimenting with some stuff.




01-25-2008, 10:03 PM
Your sigs are just awsome.And the gifts you made for everyone are all just so cute.You do a great job with them all.

01-26-2008, 02:21 AM
I thought your name looked familiar, but now after seeing some of your latest sigs, I know why! I remember seeing some of your work over on BE. =)

I scrolled through all four of your pages in this thread, and you have definitely made major improvements in your style. You do a really great job with text, and I love the subtle brushing you sometimes use around the text.

Great work, keep it up!

01-26-2008, 04:11 AM
I looove Cloud and Tiger Phant one! Great work, as always. And Serated Innocence is really adorable! I can't tell u anything u haven't heard before. The colors, blending, images, text...everything fits up together. Keep it up, and Serated fan pic is a great idea. I'll make sure to have one when u finish it!

Beyond The Grave
01-26-2008, 01:04 PM
All the rest. Gifts not for here:


^At this time i now look sort of like that^ I return from the grave Serated to visit your thread once again! I see that you have made a Pimp Tag in my absence aswell which great! You leave me speechless with wonder because of it too because it blinds me so T^T

I can see why you have that icon showing you smiling like an evil genius lol

01-29-2008, 03:22 AM
Experimenting with some stuff.



sweeeet effects here! and the colors are quite good! theres a bit too many white lights. but damn, it looks so smexy! the joys of smudging~

hoho! i like the colors! tho, the white lines effect looks a bit smooth, maybe it'll look better when its smudged?.

OH FKACK! i saw a gift for me down there! XDD *uses* (you know i liked my SnS!) a bit overloaded with the fire effects tho >__> but wah!

Konata Izumi
01-29-2008, 04:19 AM
SERAA! Thanks so much for the most adorable sig ever ! It's a super cute picture of Konata and I phail so much to not have noticed it before. ;__;
Zumi Zumi is very sorry.

Mira Kaiba
01-29-2008, 12:10 PM
Yay, awesome sigs! I agree with Unli - the Magicks sig pwns!! ^^ I love the colors and the effects, and the subtle textures make it look perfect. The other two sigs are great too - I like the last one. The lighting gives the sig a very warm feel. Keep posting your awesomeness! 8)

01-29-2008, 11:24 PM
This is my most recent before I take up tutoring and that eventual art contest.


The Hybrid
01-30-2008, 12:01 AM
Its good,but you should of done something else with the text...

01-30-2008, 12:01 AM
oh, wow. this is seriously awesome! The effects is so sexy!

the scanlines and checks works well together. its perfect, but it can have some add ons in it.

(ill edit once i figured something out)

Sweet designing btw!

02-05-2008, 05:34 PM
Alright,so I ran out of ideas for signatures, so instead I have been tutoring. Heres some of my students results so far.



02-05-2008, 06:27 PM
Your works almost exceed mine, and here I thought only I had any control over Gimp(or had it period for that matter). If you ever want to enact on that collab idea then by all means PM me and we can work on something to make the forum go wild.

02-05-2008, 06:52 PM
I really like the second student sig, Serated. The picture and the background match up perfect. Hope to see some more siggies from your students soon.

02-12-2008, 06:05 PM
The basic objective was to be able to read a .PSD file and learn what each layers purpose was and then, to work their way up the signature with a guide to the layers. Basically, there was an original, so these two are copies of that original. Anyway, enough about that.

Student results for week 2:

Happy Valentine's Day. Made some gifts.









02-14-2008, 08:29 AM
Your latest is VERY appealing!

I have NO idea on how you made the cutesy wave thingy. i tell you, itsDAMNcute!

er, hmmm this one.
the top border looks a bit awkward, and also the name on the border (a bit) but the effects are very-very nice. the stroke may look nicer with one of them being a different color... im very interested on the lines below Haruhi's arm tho. it looks quite good!

nearly forgot this.
it looks VERY futuristic! the light is a bit bright, but i dont mind burning my eyes on this one! Sweet!

Konata's ftw! tho, the text is the only problem.
Very nice new update! =D

02-14-2008, 08:35 AM
OMG Yay THankies Sera-Kun!!!!!!!!1
Its awsome^^
*points like a 5 year old*
Ohhh look at all the pretty colors!

02-15-2008, 08:09 PM
YAY!! It's so cute!!!
*snatches* Mwahaha!! >3
Thank you sooooo much!! ^.^
And happy Valentine's Day!!

I love the new siggy ! It's beautiful and the stock is well-chosen cause I'm loving it. Vector effects are really, really nice and match with the girl's clothes really well. I'm using it NOW.

02-16-2008, 11:39 PM
=O Dear God Sera, your students, they're amazing. I am in awe at how good a teacher you must have been for them to turn out that way. And the Valentine's gifts are all nice and bright. My favourite has to be the one for baka tenshi though; it looks so happy.haha.^-^

Mira Kaiba
02-23-2008, 05:07 PM
Wow, beautiful sigs! Thanks so much for mine - I love it so much - it's pretty! I love the effects of your sigs, and the colors stand out so much. Awesome job! ^^

02-23-2008, 05:18 PM
DEAR GOD! That kitty is perfect! She's got purple eyes <3 and everything else... I'm enchanted. It's beautiful. Great work, student!
Great stuff, I like them all. Those Valentine gifts are very cute. And LOVEly =)

03-09-2008, 05:13 PM
Alright, going from oldest to newest. Seeing if I may have improved slightly.

I love the Ichigo one. Liking the background texture and color. Goes well with Ichigo's hair color. xD

03-10-2008, 02:02 AM
I like all of those gifts you made! wow...I don't know if I could ever be that good. nope never...I can't even touch your standards...Your stuffs' really good though.

03-10-2008, 05:12 AM


The Sora tag looks awesome! Sharp and a very nice work on smudging the clothes ;3 tho, the C4D looks kinda pale in color... (or its just the PC screen acting up again) Try dodging up a bit of the sides?

Im always amused by the effects there... blends really well tho!
i like the orange lighting on the back of the render btw ;DDD

03-10-2008, 01:42 PM
Slightly improved? You gotta be kidding me. You've gone way beyond just improvement, Sera.

The 1st one I honestly don't like... Idk, yellow and orange aren't really my colors, but besides that, the contrast is beautiful and the background is lovely.

The 2nd one is very cute, I like the text and colors.

The 3rd one is great, these effects are awesome! They look very powerful. Nice job, keep it up! =)

03-17-2008, 10:39 PM
Right well. Yeah, CandC if you wants to.




03-17-2008, 11:47 PM
I'm gonna be biased here and proclaim the sig with my name as the best one.>=3 Kidding of course. A little.

Each of them showcase a different style so honestly, they all look really good in their own way. Only point I'll take up here is that for the Naruto one, it wouldn't hurt if he'd stand out a little more prominently. But it's a very minor one so no worries even if it stays that way.

03-21-2008, 12:49 AM
Gift Zumi. I had the available time. Lyra is not her name, i just made it up on spot.


03-21-2008, 02:32 AM
Oh-wow :o

I love the colors on the sig! the map made a nice touch.
Though, i think im focusing on around "Zumi" instead of the girl. maybe add some lighting on the girl and the focus may swing a bit.

Very nice work overall, and as i said before, lovely colors ;D work a bit on the focus BTW.

03-23-2008, 12:59 AM
Wanted a nice 'grim' feel to this one.


03-23-2008, 03:20 PM
You went past grim and parked way into morbid with this one Sera. Very niiice...^^ Might want to blur up the left side spatter though, or put another one like it on the right to balance it out.

03-24-2008, 08:54 AM
I really like the Crysis signature. It looks like he's disintegrating. The red lines fit well also.

Perpetual Specter
03-24-2008, 02:35 PM
I love that sig you made for Kona in post 127. It's practically flawless. Despite the huge variety of them, the colors all blend in together very nicely. I also liked the lighting and desings in the background I think perhaps the text should stand out a bit more, but that's all I can see to possibly improve it. Keep it up!^^

03-29-2008, 11:35 AM
Now I am pretty proud of this result.


03-29-2008, 11:40 AM
Dabbing at transparencies eh? Cool. I like the overall effect all those broken lines give.

03-29-2008, 11:49 AM
It's lovely!! Darn, I wanted to try that style for a long time on my walls...then I discarded the idea. It never occured to me to try that on my sigs...don't mind me using that later on. k?

Mira Kaiba
03-29-2008, 04:07 PM
Your last sig is beautiful - I love the effect of the transparencies. You have aligned them so they still flow very well. The colors are wonderfully warm. Awesome turnout!

03-29-2008, 04:12 PM
I like your newest sig a lot Serated. It's one of the best I have seen from you. The transparencies are perfect and the colour and pic are very good. I hope to see some more from you soon.

03-29-2008, 06:04 PM
I really don't have a lot to say with your stuff. I can just point it out that so far you have some good stuff that is worth displaying.


03-31-2008, 10:15 AM
That latest sig is awesome! It really looks great. And your older work is beautiful. You've a gift for blending colors! =) No words for you you've heard them all ; )

03-31-2008, 07:23 PM
your pretty good and they do improve each time...reps

04-01-2008, 11:42 AM
Now I am pretty proud of this result.

Imma just gonna say what i said before.
I absolutely LOVE the top left bit.

Oh my, Pink and Orange combo looks good! As well as depth! Loving the shadows the boxes gives out.

The font for Carnia is a bit... uh... not really moving me. Or maybe its just that the pink gives red a boring feel. Try something bright for the color.

Nice new style. I'm not sure if anyone tried it before, so major thanks for giving me some ideas on this type of signature :3

04-01-2008, 11:03 PM

For those that requested me to do these, give me credit or do not wear them.





04-01-2008, 11:51 PM

Me gusta!! Texture + Depth looking smexy.
Not sure on border though ^_^

04-02-2008, 01:10 AM
Lovely new sets! I love your style...wish I could do stuff like that

04-05-2008, 10:44 AM
I dont know about this one. The result is really iffy to me.


04-05-2008, 10:49 AM
Oh, I think it's very good. And I love Dante <3 blue looks good on him x] And OMG, there's Kenshin!! The border is great, orange and pink, the right colors for Ken-san. It's lovely!

04-05-2008, 11:39 AM
Wrong, its Nero. They look so alike, but they are kind of different. But I find Nero way more useful.

04-06-2008, 02:44 PM
Really? o.O Woops. I'm so ashamed of myself >> And I call myself a fan?!

04-07-2008, 09:03 AM
I dont know about this one. The result is really iffy to me.


nonsense! it's lovely ^_^ only thing is I don't think that "wishing i could fly" text suits it. Maybe something else or just deleting that part altogether would help a little.

umm...could I please have the PSD of this one? pretty please with cream, sugar and cherries on top :wacko:

04-07-2008, 01:53 PM

Get my MSN, and its yours. And I kind of didnt want the text like that anyway, and I personally dont even like Lelouch at all either (CC FTW). It was a request if only the person asked would come and get it from me.

04-07-2008, 03:41 PM
I simply cannot put this in just one word, maybe I can xD Your sigs are....AWESOMENESSHESSFULLY DETAILED!! I simply cannot have your skills :3 I love all of your sigs and I would love to see more. Keep it up!

Dark Wolf 09
04-07-2008, 08:23 PM
Wow! These are amazing! Better than my abstract art, however. Where did you get the brushes at? I love the contrasts, and rendering! Tell me where you got those brushes, pleaseee. Lol. Happy Photoshopping.

04-07-2008, 08:45 PM
DeviantArt? Where the world of art is your oyster. Or clam. Or some form of shellfish on your boat.

Hmm....... yeah, this felt right. Laugh if you get pun on this signature.


04-09-2008, 07:26 AM
The last one's nice! I think I should experiment with Desaturation sigs now...

How long have you been at sigs? You seem so experienced ^_^

04-09-2008, 07:46 AM
Year, maybe two or more.

04-09-2008, 07:59 AM
WOW!! That long? no wonder...You're the best around you know ^_^

04-09-2008, 08:11 AM
I didn't get the pun D:
Loving the effects, and Imma liking Lucy as well. but still, the heart symbol thing?

Nice stock btw ;DD i think.

04-09-2008, 08:24 AM
Now this sig completely makes sense! xD The background matches completely what the title says (since I Love Lucy was in black and white). What a genius! :3

04-09-2008, 02:53 PM
I didn't get the pun D:
Loving the effects, and Imma liking Lucy as well. but still, the heart symbol thing?

Nice stock btw ;DD i think.

The stock was pretty horrible, so I had to vector it. That result wasnt to bad at all.

That I Love Lucy sign... thingy doesn't look good with it. Plus it looks plain and boring.

04-09-2008, 06:04 PM
Hm... Only thing that comes to mind is that it was a request from Luzifer. Probably miles away though. (or lightyears even)^^'

04-09-2008, 07:17 PM
I loooooove the Lucy signature. My favorite anime to date. That sig was pure genius. ^o^=

The Nightingale
04-09-2008, 08:39 PM
Omg I <3 your sasori one i rawks xD

i would love if you mades a itachi one like it! ^^

04-09-2008, 08:45 PM
xD I've had to watch TV Land every time I visited my grandparents, so as soon as I saw the heart I began cracking up. Whooo! I get the pun! :D

Anyway. At first, I wasn't so sure about the gray, but at the same time it makes the signature more dramatically ironic. And then I began to feel bad for laughing since it seems no one loves Lucy. (Aww ;_;)

04-09-2008, 10:11 PM
That's coz it's waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay before my time.^-^

04-11-2008, 08:25 PM
I like the colors. Not too sure on the flow.


04-11-2008, 08:29 PM
whoa! This sig is so bright-looking :3 I wanna see more, keep it up!

04-12-2008, 02:06 AM
WOW, very in depth and awesome signatures you have created. I just keep staring at these things. There is so much I do not understand. So you actually get pictures from here, then add all this other stuff and layer after layer? I love your work. It is beautiful and Cool too.

04-12-2008, 02:22 AM
I had absolutely no idea you'd finished this. I don't check this thread religiously, and I was expecting a PM.

Thanks for your work, though.

Get my MSN, and its yours. And I kind of didnt want the text like that anyway, and I personally dont even like Lelouch at all either (CC FTW). It was a request if only the person asked would come and get it from me.

04-21-2008, 09:54 PM
I tried out a new style. How does it look?


04-21-2008, 11:32 PM
wow, your new siggy looks great! XD
everything match well! I like your new style ^^
is it just me, but I think the word "SERATED" is a little too small to see...

Konata Izumi
04-21-2008, 11:57 PM
It is made of super!prettiness. The background is so nice and dreamy feels like we're all above the clouds. *__*

The brush work is just magnificent. POST MOAR SERA. ❤

04-22-2008, 08:05 PM
So it was requested, so shall it be done. (and I usually make my text that way GL-chan, dont like showing my name off) Special pair of signatures to two people that I am thankful are keeping me up and around with their nice words of encouragement.



04-22-2008, 09:34 PM
Very nice usage of the brushes on the FSN sig. I like it. It looks traditionally modernistic (oxymoron!XD)

For people who need an explanation, the flower brushes are traditional because they're, very obviously, floral and modern in that they look vectored. Bow.

04-23-2008, 12:02 AM

Thank you so much! xD
I appreciate you taking time to make me one as a gift^^
...although I honestly think I hardly done anything special to warrant such a thoughtful gesture. ^^

*proudly wears gift*

04-23-2008, 12:24 AM
The second sig in post 173 is awesome. I can't really create flow in B&W images but you did. The only thing is the black dot near her head kind of stands out a lot. Maybe you could reduce the opacity of the brush? All in all these are awesome sigs and I LOVE the B&W one a tonne.

04-23-2008, 05:14 AM

These are just so goddamn awesome.
Very nice usage of brushes btw ;D

The b&w tag is nice! the stripes under the name is kinda distracting though.

04-23-2008, 12:50 PM
OMG that's for me?! You're so sweet, thank you very much, dear Sera! I'm honored to wear a sig made by one of the best gfx artists on AF! It's my pleasure to encourage you ^^

P.S. I love flowers <3

04-23-2008, 10:07 PM
Twas nothing. These are probably going to be the last tag I post before FlashD closes the thread for its length.

My aim here was for something other than anime for a little while.

Impressive depth here! (imo) too much lighting >.>;; the lighting by the left shoulder is on supernova!

Vivid colors you got there! Curves? Levels?

-Actually, scratch the too much lighting crap, it looks perfect now-

04-24-2008, 08:53 AM
I love the one you made or poison ivy. It;s beautiful! and so's the newest one.
i think the lighting's fine there. great colour composition too! and unli's right, the depth is good too.
all your creations are so flawless O_o

05-01-2008, 03:00 PM

05-01-2008, 03:33 PM
Very nice sigs you got there, Serated, I liked the ones made for poison ivy and mikadzuki...very cute. :D Your non-anime ones are quite nice, they look like more serious sigs. :ninja: Anyways, keep up the good work!! :)

Lemme guess, GRAWII? Lol, I like the lighting color effects onto this canvas, pixels are amazing! Great standard definitions, I know that face before I think his name is Captain Scott Mitchell I believe I dunno, it's been a long time since I played to first or second Ghost Recon Advance War fighter franchises.

It seems very vivid yes, the colors are dark around a tan, and red. Looks like..You did another render into another render of "Scott Mitchell" to get that vivid effect, overall nice job onto this one. Props. -Reps- You make good signatures, way better than me. Any tips to improve this beginner? Lol

05-01-2008, 07:05 PM
The best way to improve is to pretty much learn from a pro as many useful things as possible. Mostly because it is way more efficient to see things done than it is to just skim through a tutorial wondering what your supposed to do each step.

Some things for my spare time of nothingness. And if your interested in a signature contest, look in the contest area for one.



05-11-2008, 03:10 PM
I really could not get either of these to really work for me.



05-11-2008, 03:40 PM
In post#185 I adore FlashD's set, it's awesome! The first one is nice too. Like the text and those rectangular thingies.

Hmmmm, I can't advise you about the first one cause it seems fine to me, but about the second, well, I can try. ^^ I think that blue blur from her sleeves is a bit too spread around. And the "borders" of the whole sig, light orange areas, are too distracting and too pastel compared to the rest of the sig. With all that wateriness, I think a nice thin [blue?] border would fit nicely to hold it all together.

Hope this will help :]

05-11-2008, 04:33 PM
1st one looks stunning. Love the swirly brushes bit. Brilliant. 2nd one not so much. The render kinda ruins it (not your fault of course. Blame the artist! xDD) Her head's disproportionally small compared to her body.

05-12-2008, 03:47 AM
I liked where the second one was going. The smudge brushes with the lighting really does add flow. Maybe you'll come back to it????

Keep up the great work and remember they all can't be fab =p.

05-12-2008, 07:54 AM
The fate/stay night sig is really beautiful. Those brushes went really well with Saber. But is she supposed to be putting her head into some liquid or something ike that? because it kinda gives that impression when you look closely. But I like the way it fits in...
And Where did you get the extract? did you do it yourself?

Konata Izumi
05-17-2008, 10:52 PM
I love the gift Sera, it's so, so shiny. *__*, the flowery brushes and the color work very well together. I'm in love with it.

For the Saber one in the same post the colors and smudging are going rather well. Maybe a bit more depth, a border and maybe some text will make it look completely finished. :3

05-26-2008, 10:08 PM
Wow, this thread is still alive and on the first page? I am impressed its still alive... Anyway, I just gave useful, yet cruel advice to people, so feel free to say what you like about these signatures. Or me. Which ever one you like.




05-27-2008, 12:46 AM
The last one seems low quality and it spoils the look. But it's not so bad. the colours used are really nice ^^ The extract has a more manga feel to it and the background looks like its made more for higher quality images. I think that's what is spoiling the overall look...sorry...

The final fantasy sigs have come out well though. I like the first one better. Gives a nice feel. But the second one seems more like final fantasy style...all the blue and everything. Great work on the borders too. And you've used scanlines with that. Good combo ^^

05-27-2008, 10:46 PM
Today, several people learned how to make this tagnature. If it awe inspires you to become better and possibly do better in a SOTW, then track me down on MSN or Skype this weekend.


05-27-2008, 11:11 PM
Sadly, I could not have been there to finish it with you guys.
I'll free style from where I left though.

Although, the distortion on the bottom seems too distracting...

Also I'll agree with Karuto on the Final Fantasy tags.
The orange one is definitely better.
The quality is differentiated between the two.

05-27-2008, 11:16 PM
Bloody. Hellfire. Mine came out so wrong for that tut. You, sir, are a monster!

kidding. U DA MAN Sera.

05-27-2008, 11:27 PM
Of course, Sera is GODLY AWESOME xD I thank Sera for the wonderful tut ^^

05-28-2008, 02:25 AM
Whatta!:ninja: awesome siggys! I surrender to y-o-u!

I've got a feeling I already met you before. Do you happen to be one of the masterworks family or sigresource? Your style is flawless that it leaves no room for it to be better. :banghead:

05-28-2008, 12:26 PM
I really like the blue FF one, it's awesome. Colors are great, text is blending perfectly and those borders are very cool. Great job ^^ As for the latest one, it's so cute! =3

05-28-2008, 02:14 PM

Yes, I am registered to SLD, or Masterworks as you say. I am not really good enough to actually join its family ranks mostly due to inactivity, but I find their sources, assistance, and inspiration wonderfully beautiful.

EDIT: New tag added.


05-29-2008, 03:21 AM
Waaaa.!!:wacko: Dont say that! Both your saber sigs reminds me of their style. Actually my dream is to become one of them! Though I dont like what things are going on now, right there. All I can do is watch and give my support with the fam.

Anyways, whatever happens and this may sound st00p!d I'm always at your back! (Eh') Please dont forget me when you get to have the mw on your name.

06-01-2008, 12:19 PM
Not too thrilled. I am slipping in how well I put these things together.


06-01-2008, 01:15 PM
I really like your latest sig. The colors match wonderfully with Cloud's hair, also those shadows on the sides are very good. And the little circles are cool too :] The only thing that bothers me are the borders... They don't seem to fit, imo. :/

Konata Izumi
06-02-2008, 03:07 AM

Wow. That big character is part of my Chinese name. XD;
I realy like the lights at the back but with a little more stock quality it'll be fablilicious! I know how hard it is to get good quality.

Now about the Cloud Strike signature. HE LOOKS GODLY SRSLY. The C4Ds look good and so do the splatter effects. The lighting is done very well. I <3 it.

I'll be back. BWAHAHAHA~!

06-02-2008, 07:41 AM
CLOUD!! I like this one. But the quality seems a bit low. Maybe it's the extract. (No offence if you did the cutting bit yourself). If you worked on that, then it would give a nicer overall soft look. But the colours are very nice.
Oh and I just noticed that the flow bit isn't working. Some bits are really soft and some too sharp. That may be depth, but it's looking odd to me. So that needs fixing too...

...sorry >_>

06-02-2008, 08:37 AM
Cloud Tag.
I like those tiny lightings you added. And those cluster of effects and splatter near his *right collar is really nice.

Not so good on the left collar though. Then theres the black-lowered-the-opacity border on the right. And textwork seems boring. (everything imo)

06-06-2008, 07:19 AM
Closed for length.
Feel free to open a new thread. ^_^
