I figured its about time I made this =3

My entry to the sig masters contest:

A halo sig I did a while ago [since the game came out recently]:

Originally a request, but I left the name out so I could upload it at MID:

more to come soon. C-N-C please =3 ['specially for the sig masters entry]

My silent prayers have been answered.lol. Sorry, just woke up.^^'

So you made that entry? Cool.As I said when I voted, it's so simple and yet so brilliant. Uber kawaii.XD (Get used to my weird terms, it happens often.^^')

For the Halo one, the first thing that pops into my mind is bad extract. Blur it a little? And the bg's kinda too dark that you can't see the black writings anymore. I think the use of scanlines and the smudge tool are well done though.

Third one, again simple but effective. The whole colour scheme is unified and so the whole sig's balanced. I'm liking it.^^

Overall, they're very good. Keep making new stuff!XD

I like the Halo sig the best probably because I like Halo anyways,but the guy is in a cool pose with those two plasma pistols and I like the color red to.

I love your style of vectoring, what do you use to get those good curvy effects on the first signature? As for the next two, i think they could both use more flow.

I use the pen tool for all my vectoring [huggled the pen tool]
though I admit that for any circles, I use the circular marquee tool.

And thanks for all the nice comments!

This time its avis....MIYAVI!

I missed so many updates. Sorry 'bout that.^^'

On the previous sig, since I only have a hazy idea on what alpha channels are (I know they're a tab on the layers bit with the red and the blue and green but no idea how to really use them.^^') I can't really offer much in the way of criticism. It came out nicely though. Colours are unified and the transparent background is a good touch, although, since it's transparent, maybe the extraction could be cleaner? The extra lines are easily spotted without a bg to hide them.

For the latest one, nothing much to say. The checkerboard bg was a good touch and so is font placement. Nicely done sigs.=D

10-10-2007, 09:38 PM
Your avatars are so crisp and simple. I just love those.

I'm sorry, I had to drop in and say that xD I'm terrible at avatars, so you really did impress me. I can't wait for anything of a tut for the sigs!

Serated
10-10-2007, 10:37 PM
Pop out signatures are a good concept, though they usually lack important aspects like depth and flow. Though i do like the letters of the text being inside the checkerboards effect.

Hmm..Its my first time to get lost in these parts of the forum. =3

Anyways, your new creation which is the girl with a bunny band. It sorta gives me feel of the story "through the looking glass" of Lewis Carroll.

If it were supposed to be a sig the girl is a bit too large. Background, in my opinion, would be prettier if you used random colors ( color scheme would depend on your taste ofcourse ) for the checkered bg, I would say this because it became plain like the expression of the girl ( which I'm actually imitating right now..lol ).

Well, that's my take on it. I saw some of your work, they're really awesome and good. Keep up the great workmanships. =]

I do wonder what is the sig there, but hell, it looks nice~~~
i like the avas in post 8. *coughimayattempttograbcough*
the colorful popout sig is cute =3 though as black said, could the extract be cleaner? but thats all my opinions ^.^

Aesthetic
10-16-2007, 04:32 PM
i must say your latest set is stunning, something very different to what we are accustomed to seeing. I think the ava looks great just the way it is and i especially like the font you used in the sig but i'm not sure if the "persona" is out of place or a bit too much coz your name blends in so well with the environment. Also i like the textures but don't fancy the circles in the bg even though they are very inconspicuous, i think the sig would look better without them, well in mu opinion anyway. But overall great work.

YAY!!!

Wow you did it fast, and I love it. I always wanted a sig that had part of it "poping out". <3333333333 <3

If I would have known you made that sig I would have voted. ;_; *feels bad* But you're MY sig master Maru.

I actually kind of want to use this on another forum too, do you have a copy of the sig that doesn't have "Hatake Buruku" writen on it? If you don't then don't worry about it. I know I can be a pain.

Ωmega
10-22-2007, 05:50 PM
No, I didnt...-___-;; And I even told myself to save a blank one to upload on MID or something. BUT, remaking it shouldnt be a problem. I'll remake it soon...probably tomorrow, since I only have half a class tomorrow

Hmm, the last one leaves a bit to be desired, sorry. It's just a pic that doesn't work as a sig, unless you used it as a background, faded BG at that. It's,, what's the term, too "busy" looking. But I still look forward to seeing more of your work.

Oh wow o.o I really like that last one! The background looks really cool x3 Did you using a texture over all of it? It looks like it. Hmm anyway if it is a texture, I love it! The colors are also nice and I like that glow in the corner, but perhaps it could have been placed better somewhere else. o.O

The background looks simple but it only gives a good feeling. n.n <--- Same about your current set too!

Ohh! Your current and this most recent Kingdom Heart signature are wonderful~

The texture and composition on the Kingdom Heart tag is so well done! I want to know how to do it! (I stealzor your style!) ^_^

Whee! I get to comment on Maru's great works ocne again!
Your current set is just so amazing, Maru! You're as great as ever.

Now, the quoted set is... GREAT!
Personally, I'm not a fan of the style and design but it was made great and excellent. It's just my personal taste! (tee hee XD)

Maybe (for me) the color scheme in the avatar could have been a different one but nevertheless, it was still good.

Your works are better than they already were. You are just so AWESOME, Maru!

My favorite set was the little Sailor Moon one at the way top. =) That avatar is just the definiton of "AWW!"

^^, hello..

just wanted to see how you have been doing! And i see you have improved!

I really like the simplicity of your sigs, i read somewhere somebody jugded you on lack of special effects? But I think is much harder.. (i have absolutely no idea, I don't make sigs myself.. heeeeeh.. )
Anyways the reason i think it should be harded is that you have to combinate the background with the image, and how you did that with your own sig set and the kingdom hart sig i remember seeing, i thing you did an awsome job!,
also on the "alice in wonderland" sig. is really clear, that should make it more hard, because with an sharpe image it's easy to spot "beauty marks" ^,^
I like variation, and seeing special effect signatures i love (DK's for instance), but your signatures are just really clearly your own style, they are you.(:

I like the colours but you made your image very blury. You should sharpen it to make it more clearer. The image itself is a little dark and I think you should make it a little brighter so it can stand out more. ;\

You could try bringing out the character more though. Fiddle with adjustments maybe?

Serated
03-26-2008, 07:21 PM
Yeah, I think your latest is a bit flat and lacks flow. The render and text are really nice, but you should a lot more pizazz to it to make it feel more 'your own' in style.

UrusaiSevera
04-03-2008, 03:34 PM
Bjork is looking pretty nice, the smudging fits the stock and the colouring is great too.
The eureka 7 (?) one is nice, though I don't like the effect coming out of the right corner. It doesn't really fit and the extract could have been blended with the background. Because now it doesn't really look as "one".
The avatar in post #95 is absolutely H.O.T. The concentration of color on the legs really works. I'm not too enthousiastic about the signature though. The applied effects are a bit to subtle for my taste, it looks like "negative" space.

Last posted set:
Indeed the green-yellow to blue gradient isn't really flattering. Perhaps the saturation should have been higher... but I don't really know =/.....
The background of the signature is ... awesome. Just two points I don't like about this one is:
~The lighting isn't coherent
~The stock could have been blended in a bit, now it looks like she is kind of stuck on there. And I think that is partially to blame on the bright lighting from the left.
Again the avatars are hot *-*

Keep up the grand work <3

Congragulations for comind second in SOTW. I was actually a little stuck while voting. I had to come back 3 or 4 times and I still couldn't make up my mind.

Anyway, your sig was really great! Thugh I agree with Kuro Tan. That smudged ting doesn't seem to fit in well. But it looks like you were trying to give it some depth...

Loving that first one! The colors are AWESUM! And the pentooled stroke really looks good there :D

But (I wonder why I'm crapping on everyone about their text placement today...) Probably move all the text a bit closer to the focus. Excluding the namae, of course. And also move a bit of that diagonal clip repeats at the top left there. Looks = Good, Placement = Bad. I have no idea where though XD But looks pretty empty without. How about changing the diagonals to splatter brushes?


Also lol, I have the same stock of the third sig on the update :laugh:
The avatar is very nice! That shade of red-pink and pen strokes really fits ^^

This is my fav. sig from you so far. Gray with a splash of red/purple/pinkish color lol. Although I find the girl standing out too much in the sig, it still looks fine xD (well, different tastes)

Sorry, the gifts are on hold for a little bit. Serated sent me the signature for the tut he made, and it inspired me to make this:

http://img385.imageshack.us/img385/3380/newmarucopynv3.jpg (http://imageshack.us)

Now that I have the tut, I produced this:

http://img385.imageshack.us/img385/4969/geishamarucopyul0.jpg (http://imageshack.us)http://i169.photobucket.com/albums/u235/KisaragiZeet/geishamarucopy.jpg

Maybe its just that the other image before I used the tut had more colors and was easier to work with. But I forced myself to use the second one because its a vector that Ive had for so long and could not think of anything to do with it. So, in terms of that particular vector, Id admit defeat T__T

c-n-c por favor [please]

KuroTan
07-16-2008, 11:07 PM
I'm loving the colours on the first one. So vibrant and alive. Well done.^-^ Second one is also well made, although all that dark red hue kinda makes it too flat for some reason. Lighten it up a bit maybe?

07-17-2008, 01:50 AM
Ouh vector signatures always look good, well if done correctly. I love the geisha one. Wonderful colour scheme blends with the character. Good brush and pen tool work too. :3 In my opinion though, I would have put your name below the "Geisha" text in maybe black or white. Anyway it is very smexy. <3

I like all the brushes you applied, except for the ones around the text. The text was pretty dramatic itself. It looks like you put some the brushes on the text making it hard to read, making it blend in with the gradient almost.

The only thing I have to complain is this...
The random white squares seem really odd in my opinion.
Also, I don't know if it's just me, but to me, it seems as though some quality was lost. >__>

It's a good signature overall though. So don't sweat what I just said. ;D

Ooh... I recognize that bookcover. Lovely bit of c4d tweaking on that one. Alice one is also good; Nice flow with the cards and stuff. Though yeah, not as vibrant as the avi. Try Colour Balance maybe?

Jagan Eye
08-24-2008, 10:55 AM
Ouhhhh, the Alice sig. I saw it in your signature and just had to come here to comment. I absolutely love it. Its got the Alice and Wonderland feel to it and the cards are a nice touch. The background is so dreamy and I love that about it. I also think that separting your name from the Wonderland text was a good choice. It doesn't clutter the sig. Overall, I think its very lovely and I agree with KuroTan, you could mess with the color balance a bit.

Hautalken

I was actually going to say a lot more about it, but I guess Jaggy beat me to you. She said everything I wanted to say about it anyway. So I'm going to keep mum.
But how did you do those cards? Were they with the extract?

Ωmega
08-30-2008, 07:07 PM
No, the cards were from a separate scan. I added it and set it to lighten to knock out all the black :3

OH GOD, That is so awesome. The colors really are loving each other xD Love the left sides' background :3

hmm, the position and choice of C4Ds is a bit off imo, preferably, the C4D under the wing should be dark to really make it blend with the shadows. And then, the different type of lighting at the left ^^;; I don't know how to describe it, but its rectangular in shape.

Sharpen? >83
(and send me the extract, I love Fuuka and all her persona toys)

You seem to be catching a bit of Wonderwices' style at the latest 2 XDD Nice

Heh xP

Ok, look at the top of the hair.
It looks like there should be more of it, like the rest is cut off.
Resize it a bit(bigger :P)

The font:
I think I have it, though I don`t like that one, can`t read it hehe.

The blue dots is ok :3

The size it is now it its actual size, so I cant make it bigger without it looking like crap. I also didnt extract it, so that all the hair she has o_o;;

But yeah, I suppose thats true about the font. I guess I dont think of it as being unreadable since I wront the text, lol

It seems really bright Maru. I also think you should include more than just the head. The effects are cool though. :3

I totally agree, it is bright =/


Darkened it. Also, there wasnt much of her body in the pic, it was just her shoulders up. Theyre there, just covered up a bit
