Hahaha you're such a perv, but hey each to their own! Your sets are actually quite good. The images have been extracted well and the colours really make your work stand out.

very nice play of funky colors and good composition in your "feel the beat" sig. i like that one most of all...:p

however, the ecchi in your other sigs, well... i have to agree with Mini:

but hey each to their own!
But in those sigs, you may wanna downplay the bg a little... so as to give the limelight to the extractions... but come to think of it, the ladies being scantily clad and all...:p

here's a sig that i really like.Since the ones in it took most of the space i thought it wouldnt be more than a simple cut and size job but it took me a lot of time so in the end i decided i can post it.Half of the wings i had to do myself to fit,also the extraction was verry annoying.A lot of small changes that make a difference.Finally i changed the background a bit,added a couple of effects and here it is

Honestly your sigs suck. you need to work on blending and you need to learn the use of c4d's and you need to stop putting half naked anime chicks in them. you need to learn about light sources as well as proper coloring. your a pervert. Learn to use proper renders that don't expose females bodies in a way that might offend them.
Bad reps for the perverted bad sigs. Make some that aren't that way and I'll give good reps.

10-12-2007, 11:46 PM
i see you still have bad feelings from AS and you're still easily offended about half naked anime chiks(i wont start talking about what part they are in the anime world) but as it says in the headline its 15+ so dont bug me about that.About the photoshop part of your comment thanks for the tips,i'll try to learn those thing

Guyver you took none of my advice did you? You should also stop using 2 different renders and stop using your renders 2 times.

GrimStride™
10-16-2007, 01:16 PM
Now you're honestly becoming very funny.It's non of your bussines how i make my own sigs.If i want i'll use 100 renders and repeat them 1000 times.I believe that any1 who's seen your first post has understood that you dont like my sigs and you were "nice" enough to even give me tips and the bad repp...From that everyone's understood your oppinion.I'm wondering why after hating my work so much you get worked up over it.What do you care if my work is amateur?You gave your rating and some tips so thats enough don't you think.So i'd be happy if you have any more criticism to just pm me :)

Sзsικι
10-16-2007, 04:33 PM
Sorry it's called criticism learn to take it before I send some gfx pro's after your *** to give you REAL "tips". Sorry I was trying to help you see that your sig's could be improved much with a few simple things like trying out tutorials. If you don't like criticism from me then don't post your sig's simple as that. Case Closed.

10-16-2007, 09:31 PM
Well, my overall thought is that, at one point or another, we have all used some form of anime girl who is half naked (ecchi) at some point. However spamming them... well it usually has a tendency to end up with Sesiki's comments or the renders start losing their appeal.

Other than that, you should work on flow. You colorations choices are nice and really appeal to the signature's overall complexion, but you need to make all of the signautre look nice, not just the render. Also try using other fonts. I have seen that Comic Sans font in every signature of yours. Test out some other fonts and its not really necessary to add a Stroke or Bevel and Emboss to the text.

Balance
10-16-2007, 10:17 PM
Your signatures are very nice, although I do have to agree with Serated and Sesiki, the signatures consist too much of half-naked women. Two or three makes sense, but continuously can be pretty offensive. If you want to warn people about your thread, you may want to reword the title of the thread.

What you might want to do to make your signatures somewhat better is go to a font website and look for some fonts that are appropriate for the signature that you make. If you think it looks good, download it. Also, some of the colors clash with the extracts or with each overall. You may want to follow a color theme, unless you are really talented at mixing colors together.

One thing about using extra extractions is that sometimes it loses focus on the signature, therefore making a bit of a slight confusion. If they were closer together as a group, then it won't be as bad. I believe when you use the same extraction, however, it makes it slightly better, but not so much if the opacity is a little too high.

In summary, these are great, but I think you can do better with a little creativity with the fonts, and color flow.

Thank you for the advices i'll try to do those things.So here's a couple of new non ecchi sigs.Tell me if i'm on the right path to a better sig making :)

The first is better then the second. The reason is that it looks more fitting in its background but in both you don't blend them. Hold off on the animating to until you have the sig making down. Again I'll suggest you goto my sig thread and check out my loveless tutorial because it helps teach to use your render when you make the background that way the colors match and it blends and flows. Tutorials are a place where EVERYONE should start off. Not everyone can just sit down and make something great without learning and tutorials teach you what to use in photoshop.
Heres an example of what I mean:
http://img527.imageshack.us/img527/1227/hatsunemikuv2hd1.jpg
Using Serated's sig see how the colors blend together? the blue of the render and the blue of the background. In this signature it looks like he used abstract renders made in C4D and a few brushes to come out with his background.

Now for a way to get the render to blend more to your background. If you take the magic tool selecter and select the space around the render and then right click and choose feather. The best number to use is 5. Then once you feather it press delete. This slightly fades the outsides of the render making it so it looks more IN the background instead of ON the background.

Any who I gotta run PLEASE take this advice and stop ignoring me.

GrimStride™
10-17-2007, 12:37 PM
From what you've written i understand that you never:use more than one render,use a render more than once or like colours.That and some other effects i've noticed you repeated in your works comes down to always doing the same over and ever.I like my own way of making sigs and thats that.I've read enough tutorials that unlike yours are a lot better explained and i've done what i like.Why would i change my ways because a repeative person like you doesn't like my sigs.Maybe you're a pro and have thousands upon thousands of contest winning sigs and thats your bussines.Your style isn't the only one in the world thats worth something,you know...

I dont like to always have absolutely matching colours that blend perfectly,nor do i like these repeative patterns you offer.I don't like strictly using only one render,or not using another because some woman feels offended after visiting the thread that has a warning in the headline.I dont think there's anything wrong with me just open some render and start doing random effects or techniques for the backgrounds.Why do you care if my sigs suck and are funny.Its up to me to improve and you're only annoying me with your "ORDER" like advices.I'll repeat myself and so please if you have any more tips pm me

No one said you had to do monochromatic signatures, but at least use colors that MATCH with the scan youre using. You need to understand the basic rules of color. For example:
Green and red backgrounds look HORRIBLE. The only exception to this should be for christmas.

Also, your backgrounds are very plain. Its not hard to add a huge motion blur and then use the marquee tool here and there. Your work looks like it took maybe a minute to do, and good signatures take about 3 minutes to do.

As for the animations, you need something that flows better. So far, all the animated sigs Ive seen look like flashing motel signs. They just dont fit with the sig.

Its also ok to use more than one scna in a sig, however they have to match. If you have one bright one and one dark one, or two scans from two completly different artists with art styles, then it just looks tacky.

Try focusing on color and composition instead of slapping together a bunch of images you like with colors you like.

i know the c4d render isnt very matching but i'm having trouble finding better ones

Sзsικι
10-19-2007, 09:00 AM
Oh the long search for c4ds... I hate looking for them even though you hate my advice I'm not going to stop giving it because I can see you improving bit by bit

the first one needs a drop shadow on the outline behind the girl and maybe a few of the lines otherwise thats a great example of what most would call vector(don't call it that though because a lot of people will flame you till you agree its not) also it could use being a tad smaller theres a lot of negative space(empty space) that wouldnt be there if it were smaller. I like how you used the colors from the render though. I also like that both of these sigs don't show boobies! they are marked by my seal of approval x]

For the second one I like what you were trying to accomplish with it. Although like you were saying the c4d isn't matching but! It's not that it doesn't match it's just that it doesn't flow well with it. It would be a great sig honestly if you just took out the main render because she doesn't match very well she just looks a little to sharp. and about c4ds there hard to find! when people say to try planet renders I wanna laugh at them because it has nothing i wanna use its all the same thing in other colors basically try the link my sig the resource list is huge i think theres even a 300+ c4d download. then theres the URL resource list which has like 100+ links to any resource you'd need really. Also the font isn't that great its uhm.. green? xD try white or black with an outer glow or a 1px stroke. I like how your background looks smudged though it's pretty nice. =]

Any ways though I like where you're going and I do somehow feel like you've taken some of my advice because in just that bit I see some improving.

@jamie5192 - finally a good oppinion about my work.I'm so happy

And here's a sig i made just a few minutes ago.I know it may be a litle exposed(one of my last ecchi and i just didnt want to waste it) but i promise next sigs will be non ecchi:D.It took me a lot of time and still i feel like its kinda empty but i tried the...vector stuff.Any advice is welocme:)

I like it very much! I think the first version without the anime addict text looks best of all and despite the echii look to it i dont seem to mind it because you arent focusing in on her chest or something.

Something you might should work on though is the flow because it seems to be flowing away from your render. so this make it so there isnt a real focal point. try to make things flow into your render and keep up the good work =]

Ok I like it!!! The only thing is the pink isn't a great color to go behind him. You did great blending though.

I like the border you did. =]

Hey guys , after a long break from making signatures because i wasn't able to find inspiration i decided to make a few and see how things go.Since i had a lot of free time lately with the summer vacation coming soon i found a few renders i liked and tried to get back in the game :D.I must say im pleased with some of the results but i need objective opinions.I remember my first steps,how my work sucked and how much help i received from AF with improving and i think this is the place to improve more.I know im not as good as many of the great gfx'ers i've seen around here so i want as many tips as possible on improving my signatures.So here it goes :

The first 2 i made using some new "techniques"i picked up so i really need to know what needs improving.
