The old thread got closed for length, so here's a new one!

I haven't really improved since last time ... haven't had time to practice and I've been too lazy to take requests from people xD (gomen!)

But nevertheless, here are some new ones.

Totally UNINSPIRED:

I love your use of the colors. The first one is really nice, that second one- the sets- are amazing.

Second ot comment, not bad. =3

ANYWAYS, I loooove the second sig. The background is gorgeous and so is the blending. The pic blends so well with the background. So good I wanna cry.. ;_;

I love the avvy on the second set. The colors are great, and I like the positioning of the character. The text flows well also. The sig is nice too - the pale blue lighting is nice, and I love the background affects. On the first one, the lighting looks a little off on the right, but I like the background. Great stuff! XD

what are you talking about i mean you are so good the color in the Saber set are so beautiful they contrast quite flawlessly i really do like the Saber set as for the other one it is also very good however i think he saber is the star of the show XD

Ah! The saber disappeared! @_@;

But my fault, I should have posted here earlier.^^; Anyway, I'll go with what I remember.

You have an amazing knack to seamlessly blend c4ds into the background and your sigs come out so vibrantly because of it. Well done.=] My only criticism though would be in the code geass (sp?) sig, the characters could be made to stand out more. But it's very minor.

Yep, it disappeared. I uploaded it again so it should be there now. =3 *Kicks imageshack*

I wasn't expecting so many comments already... whee makes me so happy <3
Glad that you guys like the Saber one ^^ Because I think I really got the C4Ds to work well on it!
As for the Code Geass one - I really have no idea how to improve it. x.x

Was bored so I made a new set again ~
http://img207.imageshack.us/img207/3014/deliciousavaim8.png

Version 1 - Meh, background is a bit boring and so are the colors...
http://img529.imageshack.us/img529/2434/delicioussig1xe0.png

Version 2 - Twisting fun! I personally likes this one better than version 1, since this one fills out the whole sig and doesn't leave it "empty".

Ahh ~

Megami, your avatars are really pretty especially the latest one.
The siggies you made for it have nice colors that match the mood really nicely, I like both Version 1 & 2 equally. Though the background is dull, I like how it looks so smooth and flows nicely.

Oh yes, the way you used your C4Ds in your current set is beyond amazing, it goes really well with the flow of the sig.

Update more soon. ^_____^

Aww thanks for the comments <3 I never know what to reply to comments like that but uh... I really appreciate it but I'm sure you know that already. xD

This was a request I got from animeseishi for a month ago o_o haha I'm late. I wonder if she still comes here. She wanted the sig light but I made it pretty dark... but I think it's better this way.
http://img206.imageshack.us/img206/6187/animeseishisig1nz8.png

For myself, made it same way but different gradient maps, brushes and more clipping masks:

Does the avatar look dirty? o_o If it doesn't for you... then maybe it's my monitor.

Since you posted somemore, I have more to say. x3 I"ll start from post #8 :3

Personally, I like the 1st one better. Even though there is a white space, it's not bland. Besides, the squiggly on the left is pwetty. The second one...well, I dont' like the colors as much. The first one makes me think "one sig" the second one makes me think "three sections of a sig". This is probably due to the pink lines that seems to seperate the two girls from the background. :/

The sig for animeseishi is B-E-A-U-T-I-F-U-L. Probably my favorite one in this thread. I'm not too fond of the actual image, but the background has left me astounded. Y'know how there's a little piece on the left that's sort of like an add-on? The effectson that area would have made your sig look better if you had also had the same effect on the main girl (let's pretend that it's two girls x3). It makes the image smooth, like your background, and the image would have blended even better.=3

And for your last sig. Love the background (as usual). It does look a tad dirty on the left side of the sig. Again, your add-on has better effects than on the main part of the sig x3 To tell you the truth, i'm not very fond of the add-ons. Just my opnion, I think they take away form the actual sig.

Overall, fantastic job! You're awesome Megi! <3 Keep up the good work!

I like your work very much, puts mine to great shame xD

I very much liked your "UNINSPIRED" and sig request from animeseishi. Your uninspired one had a nice mix of colors, with certain points here and there hilighted to really bring out key aspects of your work. It has a very nice style but sigs that utilize filter effects such as Splatter, etc. don't need to be sharpened much (excuse me if I'm wrong, its just what it looks like). My tip for that sig is to blur certain areas, that way your focal point will draw the eyes of people more.

Now animeseishi's sig is a very unique and creative piece. The effects and lighting worked out well, and there is a nice depth to it. The only thing I can say about it that is wee bit negative is that the color came out a bit dull. I know you were going for a more monotone, calm sig but I believe by sprucing it up a bit with Gradient Maps, Color Balance, Brightness/Contrast, your sig will burst from the canvas and fwap the observer xD

akari_aurion - The 'add on' isn't really missing any effects except perhaps a 1px star or something. Also, it's like 40% more blurrier than the actual stock. Well, those parts doesn't seem to be too popular so I might just forget about them x3 I'm not too fond of them either anyway. Thank you very much for your advice!

TreyX - Hm, the Code Geass sig actually is sharpened. IMO I think splatter + sharpen go well together, well, smudge + sharpen also.
True that I didn't use many adjustments layers on animeseishi's sig because I thought it was good as it is. I changed the balance just a bit. o.o The colors aren't much different from the original stock. Thanks for commenting anyway =3!

Haven't done much but here's at least some:
http://img150.imageshack.us/img150/52/deliciouspngiq9.png
Now what did I do with this one compared to what I did to the last one with the same stock image?
More gradient maps, filters, texture layers... I was pretty much messing with the colors x3 Added very few C4Ds and then made that little text design to the left. Woo!

Well it's time to finally comment.
First off, this seems to be the perfect set for you Megami! When I first saw it, I was thinking on how perfectly it fits your image. Calm, simple at first (avatar) but complex at the same time (signature).
It's a very beautiful set that you have made for yourself.
Or it could be my little odd obsession with abstractness...

I thought these ones were cute, and the last signature was a very interesting twist.
Very creative Megami. =3

The small little banner is really intriguing, and attractive.
Although it seems too messy on the left making it a bit hard to determine the actual text.
The avatars are really beautiful, and I think it also suits your image as well.
I think the one on the left is better though.


As good as ever I see my little friend.
You've improved much since the beginning.
I'm so proud of you <3
Kind of weird to say that even though you joined way after all of us.
Unless you're actually a member of AF from back then and decided to get another account.

The first thing that comes to mind is.. "I wanna make awesome avatars like those!" but I'm sure that has nothing to do with anything.

I can't make good avatars, so seeing the five above is making me jealous. Lol You really did a good job. If you don't mind, can you give me a few tips for making avatars? I can make sigs, but I have trouble working on such small canvases that avatars require.

As for your sigs. There are only about two I don't like. The rest are amazing. I believe I like your current set the best. It has great color, and depth. The lighting is a little bit shaky, but not something I'd notice without close inspection because everything else kind of distracts me. XD It's that pretty.

Wow, I haven't comented in one of your sigs-avas threads since last year xD so much time...

Anyway... We all know that I suck badly commeting things about photoshop and stuff, so I'm just going to say how pretty are your new works, kay? <3

First of all, I love your current avi/siggy. I think the colors are perfect and the angles of the image you choose are great.

The "twisting fun" sig is... fun xD. I would want to see it with a mirror effect, because that's what comes to my mind right now.

I love the UlquixHime sig, I like those two together.

The Honey avi is really cute <3

And just because I want to say it, I still love the siggy you did for me.

I'm surprised that you're still using the set, Antares x3

I'm surprised as well, I get tired of things really fast so stiking to this sig/avi is quite amazing. I've come up with two reasons: a) I love how it turned out; b) I haven't found another image that has made go "wow!" in a while. Well, I have... just not for this username xD.

I'm rambling, back to topic.

I love the second avi, it's amazing. Maybe it's because I love blue. Blue <3. Also, it's cute that you decided to make an avi from a picture of yours, and I prefer the last one. The colors look more vivid than the third avi, making me think of happy dreams (the third one looks nostalgic).

Again, I don't know a thing of photoshop, but I think that the face might have looked better if the pink siggy was a little bigger. I think.

The Nana sig, I prefer the first one. The other one seems a little plain for my taste.

PS: I'm sending you a present on a pm X3

Wow, beautiful avvies! I love your avatars - they always look great. My faves are the first and third ones. The colors are awesome, and they blend well. I also like the first Nana sig. I think the background came out great! ^^ The right part on the first sig looks like it's repeating, but other than that, I love it. ^^ Great works!

Yeah it looks a bit like the background is repeating itself ;_; used a lot of filters (displace) and stuff. Bleh >_> It was originally a stock of a city in like... Italy or something.

Well. I've been so uninspired and then I solved my pen-tool path problem so I tried it out. What else can I say but sexy lines?

Lol fast reply... AND DANG HER WRIST! I didn't notice ;_; It's true that you only notice things if you take a second look...

Well the thing is that the scan didn't have the whole of C.C.'s (the girl's body) and her wrist/arm was actually cut off. I was planning to make it look all-smudged-over but I forgot about it, heh. ^^;

Maybe I'll try to do something about it... but I don't know what :x
BWAAAAAH I somehow wish I could succeed in doing something perfect. :<

Glad you like my avatars, thank you very much for commenting.

[Edit]Is this better? Smudged, added a heart brush (-_- I was desperate) and moved text to distract.

lemme just start off by saying these are beautiful, and I adore ow they came out. But, I say the artist of the first two stocks, almost took them, then saw that there was a big "no-no" on useing her images for graphic stuff. Just a heads up on that >_>;;

still...its so pretty ;__;

01-25-2008, 10:58 AM
I'm very sorry for being extremely late, but thank you all for commenting. And actually I think I'll remove those avatars since I'm supposedly not allowed to use them. Does this count as photo-manipulating anyway? Because that's what the stock images are NOT for - according to the artist her/himself.

Here's some new stuff: a random icon and a set I promised to make for FierceFeli.

Haven't posted in ageeees.

But first. -omg KAREHA- It's really a lovely set and I particularly like the swirl that goes around her, adds more to the magical feel. The background is uber nice, so is the font. The avatar has a good 'cut' effect, it looks good and blends icon-wise well.

The set for FierceFeli is pwetty, the fonts are nice, so is the background and you blended the girl in quite nicely too. The fluffy, cloudyish stuff on the left side looks really nice. The avatar has a nice, brighter pink color theme than the signature, & the font goes well.

Anyway. Enough rambling from me. ;]

Pink is the new Megi.

GODDAMMIT! i love the new set! the Pink filter looks good! though, the line is a bit too thick (imo) i see you used some pattern on the bottom right. It gives a nice effect. The height of the sig makes smooth borders look nice. the icon is cutesy as well!

i like the Code Geass (sp?) avatar.

Yay, awesome updates from Megi!! I love the set for Fierce Feli - the colors are great. I also really like the different shapes of the sigs that you used - I don't think you have used them very much before. Your new set is fantastic - I agree with Unli - I like the pattern in the right. It adds a lot of depth to the sig. I also love the avvy. You need to update more! *I know I do. ^^*

I made a tutorial on how I made them and uploaded it here:

Haven't left a comment on your stuff in ages <___<;;;
Oh well...
I'll start by commenting those I see on this page:
NOTE: I comment on siggies,for I really don't know what to say about avatars...
They're all very nice looking,and cute,but I really don't know what else to say about them o.O
Forgive me T_T

~ post 30:
Protection one - I really love this one...has very nice feeling to it ^^
The bg effects are wonderful,and the character is somewhat mystic looking,and the bg is pretty much awesome...
Looking like mystic sky,lol...
Anywho,the idea itself is very nice,and is well balanced...
Effects are well matching the whole mood,and the tiny borders are nicely done...

Nana - 1st version: waaaaay better the 2nd one...I really love the first one...
Messy?
I really don't think so...
The background had simply wonderful mood,for I think it's looking like a stormy clouds,and is beautifully done...
Really,it is!!
And character is well fitting into whole sig mood,and words are just adding sad effect to the whole sig...
I find this one very balanced,with totally brilliant flow...
You might think of this one as suckage,but I don't think so...
I find it rather great,with whole *waiting for you no matter what's going to happen* idea...
The cloudy sky,the character's face expression,everything is fine,believe me...
Also,I can notice the light effect on the top left corner,which looks like a sun ray striking it's way through the clouds,like the light of hope that she's going to meet him again...
Also,font is very catchy ^^
I find this one very beautiful,and full of emotions...

You shouldn't judge you sig plain on look,you should look deeper in feelings that sig contains,and also should look every detail before judging it...

And so,I would ask for your permission to put this one in my blog as one of my favorite signatures...
Haven't opened that kind of entry yet,but if you allow me,I'll be more than happy to open it...
It's truly beautiful,and I do mean it...

2nd version,on the other hand is something I dislike...
Balance is disturbed with the borders and the color of the font,and doesn't have feeling like the first version...

~ post 34:
First version for me,because it's bigger ^^
Anywho,I love the overall look of it,beautiful...
It's beautiful,and the bg reminds me of some mystic forest from stories,and she looks like a fairy...
Really cute,with nice balance,and those two lines are simply greatly placed...
Those tiny borders are catchy,and font is very nice,and so is the coloring of it...
The bg effect is pretty great,and the character is simply cute...
Fits well into the bg,and the whole sig simply goes with the flow..
There isn't even one thing that I could state as separate one,for the sig would kinda look incomplete without even one part...
DUnno,but I find this rather almost perfect...

~ post 36
Rebellion Queen is very beautiful...
Simply great...
Effects of the bg are amazing,and simple at some point,and bg itself isn't filled with any unnecessary effects,which is why it's so beautiful...
Character is very cute,and well placed,though her hand is kinda bothering me,for the bg tends to mix very much with the down part of her hand...
But if you were aiming to do that,then it's ok I guess ^^

As for the other version,I see no mistakes here...
That fade away part of hand was masked with the font,and now I find it rather completely beautiful...
Nothing much to comment on,seeing how I stated things on earlier version,and not much changed on this one,but I do like the heart...
It's very nicely placed,and definitely nice coloring,which makes it different,yet matching with the sig...
Nice...

~ post 42:
Fierce Feli...now this is trully great...
There are those lines that are kinda bothering me,but I do think they are necessary here...
I love the bg effects,and most of all character matching so good with it...
Character itself is very pretty,and goes along the mood of the bg...
Font is pretty nice,and there's only one thing still bothering me - those darker parts on bottom right and top left corner...
Kinda doesn't fit with it too well...
Other than that is good,so don't let it bother you too much...
The light effect is perfect,not strong and not weak,just...perfect...

Pink Magic one is simply amazing...
The swirl adds magical feeling to it,and character has nice placement there...
The bg is one of the finest I've seen,for the effects in it are just simply leaving me breathless...
Those changes from darker to lighter color is just simply amazing...
I find those dots on the bottom right corner very effective and nice...
The sig itself has a very nice feeling to it...
Dunno what else to say to be honest...
Extremely beautiful,I had to say it...

As I've already said,avatars are pretty nice and cute,but since I suck when it comes to commenting on those,I think I should pass on it...

Some of the words and thoughts I might have not explained well,but I do think you got my point,in most of cases...
Your work is beautiful and amazing in most cases,so keep up...
I really love your work and I'd love to see more before I leave,so make sure to update again soon...

Aww Hamashimura... I'm out of words so I can't really reply to what you've said. I think you're very right about that you shouldn't judge things by looks, but also by the feelings they give.

Of course you can put my sig up in your blog. The only thing I would mind if you'd write something like "I MADE THIS KEWL LOLZ" which I know you won't.

Thank you so much for your comment(s), they're very warming and I'm sure all artists here at AF enjoys every word of your posts!

Oh I don't know why. Perhaps it's the past weekend that made me want to make sigs so much. x3 So here are some new stuffs again~

I really like this set myself because I got all the C4Ds to blend in together. I used about um... 10. ;D

This next signature is for another site I go to and it's big so the "signature" will fit into the... signature.

hi there.

1st one: wow you used 10 C4Ds, and you placed them all right just at the back of the render. But too much C4Ds can make the colors of each clash with the other ones. ^^

2nd: I like it. Cute. Texts used are lovely, I'm loving the pink. It's nice overall, but you may want to reduce using the vector brush next time. Putting too much of it can ruin the sig. :)

Thank you for your kind words ^_^
I've placed in it my blog,and gave you credits for it...
Ofcourse I wouldn't do such things as telling that I've created it,that would be just wrong...

Mhm,I see these new ones...
I love Kaname one ( <3 FMP )
Again you did awesome job with the background,it's very nice...
I love those effects in it,for it's giving it extreme beauty...
Seeing those effects kinda reminds me of Fumoffu,for they really are done in anime style...
Character placement is great,and her face expresson really fits with the sig,for it's very happy ^^
Sig itself is nicely balanced,and has a nice feeling to it...
Font is fancy and beautiful,and nicely colored...
I really like it...

About 2nd one,it's nice,but empty...
Namely,it's cute and good,but the right side seems a bit empty because there's actually nothing in it...
Font is very cute,well fitting the sig,and image is kawaii ^^
Efects are nice,but they should reach the right side too...

2nd version on he other hand is better,but I kinda think that this *recently watched anime* doesn't really fits here...
Kinda jumps out from the sig if you know what I mean...
Comments the same as for the first version except emptiness...

But I do think that these two are adorables ^_^
Not much of a comment,but I dunno what else I could say...

Keep up ^^ <3333

Bad sig day? These are better than my "good" days!!!

Anyways, your latest sig is gorgeous [as is every single one you've ever posted].
For the original version of the sig, though it looks a little big, I like the effects on the girl better. Blends better with the bg. Your text placement is always awesome, and in the newer version of the sig, the lines to the left of the girl is a great addition. It makes the sig seem more complete.

The only problem I see with the sig is that the girl seems drowned out. And when you stick her somewhere on the top left corner, she seems unimportant and obsolete.

Overall, nice job as always =3

.Lovebeat
02-03-2008, 12:32 PM
Thank you <3
The girl is supposed to be on the left because in the "empty space" I was supposed to put an anime-watching-whatever-recorder-thingy. This sig of the girl was basically the "background". (See post #48 if you want to know what I mean) But yeah since I thought that it looked terrible I resized it and made it to a smaller signature instead.

Maybe a bad sig day but at least not a bad icon day 8D These cheered me up quite a bit:

Gosh I don't see what your talking about.I really like it actually like it.The only thing would be you probably could have added a little something else.It looks a little empty.Other than that the blending looks okay and it seems to flow nicely.
Also all the avi images you made are really Kawaii!

02-03-2008, 03:43 PM
Whoa...all sigs you dislike are turned to be great...
I love this one...
The character placement is really good,and the bg is catchy...
I love the effects,especially the changing colors...
On most sigs it would look off,but you can merge them really good...
Also,I've noticed the depth of the sig,which makes it extremely good...
Balance is perfect,and the font is really nice...
Color of the font matches with the bg,and borders are perfect...

I think a vertical signature would have worked better in design for the Hatsune Miku one. Though i like most of it except for the fact that the render is pretty small.

I like it, really. Texts are simple, yet overly effective on the sig. The smudged effect is done well. Overall it's great, although the light blue borders are killing the light (if you'd ask me :laugh: ). Also, you may want to add a bit warm color into it. ^^

Hmmm, I actually can see what you mean. It's not bad, of course..but you've done much better. ^_^ The right side's just so empty even though it's a nice blend of colors. Meanwhile, the avatars are pretty as always. ^^

@ Serated - Really? I'm picky about vector sigs though. I think vector sigs suits better to those cute/chibi images. xD

Request from Antares:
http://img176.imageshack.us/img176/8137/antares2avaub7.png http://img137.imageshack.us/img137/2653/antares2signj7.png

Perhaps color and B/W doesn't go well together but it's a try, no? ^^;
Yes I do take requests now, but I'm pretty busy with school, homeworks and WoW so if you're in a hurry with your request then don't request from me ...

Serated didn't say vector.. ^^; She said vertical.. You know, horizontal? vertical? Heh..

Hehe, awesome sigs. I like the ones you dislike - the colors look great and they are well-blended. I agree about the borders though, you might want to change the color on those.

I like the new sig for Antares - the lighting and colors look good, but it seems a little large (long) for the image, which is why it may seem a bit empty. However, the background is great, and the avvy is simply awesome! ^^

.Lovebeat
02-09-2008, 11:26 AM
So I suppose that borders should be in a pretty neutral-darkish color instead of bright, because it burns? o.o??

Wow, I completely agree - the new sig is much better than the last one. The colors match really well, and I like the lighting and affects much better. Awesome!!!

Hehe, beware the attack of the avvies! o_O
They look great, especially the first and last ones.

I also like the last two siggies, the second one better. The lighting is nice, as are the light colors. I agree about the avvy - you might want to try something lighter and less brown-ish.

Great works! <3

It feels like 'too much of the same color', but it's not ugly per se. Maybe the up-side down girl wasn't the best choice and the font... ejem, I can't see it very well.. *maybe it's because I'm not on my computer D:*

Ah,waiting payed off =P
Massive comment time <3333

Let's see,from my last post there's quite much ^^
Bwahaha,let's begin XD:

~ post 61:
Hmmm...no balance,and colors arent matching the bg...
Yup,that's all,for I see much better version bellow ^^

~ post 68 (aka remake of post 61)
Now that's great...
The bg is great,so are the effects in it...
The character fits well,and it's placement creates perfect balance of sides...
Light effect is well placed,kind of gives out mystic mood or something...
Complete flow is nice,and font looks quite catchy...
Nice border coloring...
Overall great...

Allen Walker one is quite good,tho I immediatle noticed the borders...
I think they're somewhat too big,which gives out super big contrast,which lead to somewhat unbalanced sig...
Try looking it on white bg (I always view them in white bg,becasue then everything is well seen,even the smallest details),to realise my point...
Without borders it would look good,but the left side seems kind of empty...
Font is placed near middle,and character + effects are filling the right side + center,so that leaves left side empty...
Atleast I see it like that..
Tho I love the effect,looking simple but good...

Sunset breeze on the other hand is much better...
I'm in love with those effects in bg,just brilliant...
Character completely fits into the bg...
I love the pacement of light effect,tho it might be a wee bit too strong...
But it goes well with the character,so that's not necesasrility a mistake...
Font and border coloring goes well with the whole sig,and makes it even better...
Overall great work ^^

~ post 71:
Hmmm...It is quite good,I love the bg effects,but there seem to be too much of them and they mixed up with chara and messed it up a bit...?
Balance is retty fine,and character placement is good...
Only thing I mind is that bg literally takes over the sig...
Font is good tho,I like it...

~ post 74:
Now this is great...
Mood of the sig is pretty well done,and it's completely well balanced...
Bg effect are creating beautiful image for the girl placement...
Girl fits well into the bg,and goes along with creating extremely beautiful image...
Her expression is telling so much,and the text is only adding to the mood...
Font is great,and so is the coloring of it...
Borders are well done too,goes well with complete sig..
Overall extremely good...

*Ahem* Sorry for the LATE update! I've just been busy vectoring a little something something (been 18 hours of vectoring now... I think) so I haven't put much strength in sigs lately.

Hamashimura - That's pretty clever, I mean, to look at them in a white background. I'll think about that from now on actually!

Hieko - Thanks. It's not a render though. It's more like a stock/scan image... a render doesn't have a background at all but this one did indeed have a background.

Nariko - Woo thanks. ;D

Umm anyway so I did make a sig. It's not so advanced. ;3

Oh dude, they're gorgeous. But for some reason, they look like they were overdone. ._.; The one I really like out of all of them is the lolita-like avatar you made. +point+ The rest, I suggest you should make it look a little more simple.

Thanks a lot, I needed that. xD

I stated in my blog that I'm going to do some kind of farewell-sig-making sigs for people who I like and who've helped me and supported me with all this. My computer is back now so I got my files back and so far I've only managed to make some sigs for Mira Kaiba. I hope you will see this.

And yeah when I finished this I felt that they looks horrible... but I couldn't make it any better. I just can't satisfy myself. Making graphics should be for your own sake, right? And not only for others, so it's kind of a big issue if I don't like what I do. o.o

I made a tutorial for it which can be found [ here (http://www.animeforum.com/showthread.php?t=70189) ]
Sig = Awesomeness
Tutorial = Pure genius
Great job on this Megami, it's wonderful.



I think that I'm kind of ... sinking into depression or something. I don't feel like doing anything anymore, including graphics... so yeah. My sigs sucks. I feel like quitting.
Bull. You're signatures are EXCELLENT. Don't let that depression get into you. Everyone goes through those stages, but it always ends up that we always prevail over our own depression. So don't feel sad and that your signatures suck, because every time I come in here, I am amazed. These signatures are out of this world. Remember, you do inspire a lot of people.



http://img528.imageshack.us/img528/3900/childofthedarktr9.png

This one is quite interesting, although I normally don't like backgrounds such as these, I believe this one was used quite effectively. I really like the purple lighting next to Dark Chii's head. Very nice.



http://img403.imageshack.us/img403/3163/powcg5.png

Fujibayashi Kyou = "Teh Awsomeness"
This is is really perfect and the background really brings out Kyou's personality. This one is perfect. I also think I understand why there's no text in here. To me, if I was making this, it would be hard to find the perfect text to go along with this signature and make it fit. You did a REALLY good job on this one.




Not even bothering with texts and fonts anymore..

http://img528.imageshack.us/img528/6104/asa01cs8.png http://img168.imageshack.us/img168/1640/primula01ei5.png http://img403.imageshack.us/img403/7409/primula02rt1.png

But your text and fonts is what made you even MORE unique! But yeah, it does get overwhelming and it is hard to find the right text. These are awesome avatars again, Megami. All the time, you seem to have the perfect knacks on making avatars.

Makes me wonder about the Brain capacities of the school functions whenever I read about something like these. Well, these icons are not bad, especially since they were used on paint.net. Like I said, you really have a knack for icons. Especially lovin this one

ALL three of them look fantastic. They are simply amazing. The effects that you have made for the background is really really creative and the little black bar is just perfect for this kind of signature. If I was asked for which one I think looks better, I'd say all of them, because I honestly can't make up my mind on which one is better.

Again, these are all great Megami, and I hope you will continue to make your signatures and icons and inspire those who are still beginners.

I really like the Aaron sig. Though, I think that red line on the side really isnt needed. It draws the eye there first, sintead of the the actual focus of the sig.

And with your current sig, I really like the the spot of pink and the coffe ring looking brush [its a brush, right?]. I also like how the face is cut off, the the tech looking brush looks a bit like tape in the note book. Very nicely done :3

Don't know if you're familiar with vertical sigs, but they're usually pretty big. But yeah now when I look at it it might be a little too big. @.@ I'm just not good with deciding size for vertical sigs.


I don't see anything that should really be changed excpt maybe a lighting effect, if even that.
I did actually add a Lighting Effects layer... and softbrush light/dark layers. .__.


the only thing here i dislike is the red soft dots. change the layer mood?
I knew it D; I'll really think of that next time.

I tried out a sprite signature (for the third time). This took me almost 2 hours... eh. A little help from Serated with small suggestions and tweaks, so some credit goes to him too.

And a new anime list signature.
For your information, the signature is originally cut in slices and the list-signature itself is the one with the actual list. I can NOT change the shape of this, I can ONLY change the color and amount of rows, so I can't do much if it doesn't blend in well.

Without the list-sig:

With the sig-list:

Don't say that the blah blah pattern looks bad and that the background is empty blah blah because the sig-list is going to cover it up anyway.

Your icons are always very stunning. Sure, maybe your sigs need a bit here and there, but we cant always be perfect [like your icons <3]

I love the new sig you made for yourself. The little bit of color flows so well with the shape of the girl, it flows nicely and leads the eye where you want it to.

The power limit sig is nice, though I think Id like it without the extra pink on the sides.

As for the sig for Knuffle Bunny...its just too messy for me. It may have looked better as a vector-bg sig...or even better, a scenic-bg sig.

But overall, your work is some great eye candy <3

I see a lot of smudging though, however you created some good depth by blurring most of it.

The text looks just right and the background - especially the flowery part on the left looks stunning. The right is a little empty but this doesn't bother, it's actually quite calm on the eyes.

It's more like a "what the heck was I doing" sig though. Vector signature tutorial NEEDED. Didn't even bother with border and name. So no stealing please. xD

Wow, thank you Unli. I didn't think it was that good haha. I'll make a tut of it some time soonish.

And thank you everyone else for the comments. Appreciated. <3 And I'm glad you all like the red one, I spent lot of time on it and I didn't think it was that good in the end... ): Gaah, Serated's fault xDD

I adore the blue version of the signature! The blending and the colours are simply amazing.
The left side may be a little empty, but it doesn't bother at all. x3

I like the blue one the most because it looks more sparkly in blue xD.
Keep up the grand work. <3

I personally like this one better.
Reason why is because in my opinion...
Black and white signatures usually look best when there are huge contrast differences rather than seeing millions of different shades of gray.
Lovely signature though.
Very, very beautiful.
You know, they say one's art is a reflection of one's beauty. >3

These avatars are ALL awesome.
Probably perhaps because I don't do much in the avatar making business and whatnot. But they're still wonderful.

Now this signature is quite interesting, and I love the emphasis you put in between them.
However, it seems really odd that there are two subjects in this signature, and they're so far apart, so the only thing you focus on is the effects that you put in the middle of the signature.
That's all I have to say.

Hopefully you'll post more. >3

@ Balance - Thanks for posting. Haha, oh if that was true. Glad you like my avatars. About the second signature, yeah I find it pretty odd myself that there's two-three things to focus on, but I'm hoping I kind of solved it by adding a focus in the middle you're supposed to pay attention to. I noticed now that my sharpened part are super obvious (see Syaroan's/the guy's head).

This right here is HIGHLY intuitive and my favorite of the three you made.
The colors are much better and the Lovebeat text seems to complete it. Thus I liked this one best.
Although I wish I could have read the "Say You Love Me" text easier...
But you know, it's hard to do things like that anyway.

http://img124.imageshack.us/img124/589/explosiveavasx9.png

Honestly, I can see why you would add the lines and text, and I liked it, rather than just having your name in one place. The reason why I thought it looked weird though, in my opinion, was because they disrupted the flow that you had already created, thus making it look like it was just placed there out of random. So if they were more in tune with the flow that you h ad, I think it would have looked excellent.

Also, purple seems out of...the color theme in the overall signature. However, I am loving (EXTREMELY) the little clipping masks that you have done on the arms of C.C.

Also, the avatar is win. ;3

.Lovebeat
09-16-2008, 03:57 PM
Thanks for commenting Balance <3

The "Say you love me" text is a texture, and I didn't want it to be too visible and obvious.

This is the very very last version of that CC sig... I swear @.@
http://img55.imageshack.us/img55/9950/explosiveexpressivesigvjb6.png
But I also think this is the better one. Clipping mask'd the letters, hah! I should've thought about that before since the whole sig is pretty much made out of clipping masks anyway. >__>;

I'm on a roll this week so I made some more stuffies ;3
http://img385.imageshack.us/img385/7329/notecouplesigdi7.png

I LOVE -adorelovelovelove- the notebook signature. I swear, it's really sexy. XD Background, blending and text look brilliant. The only thing I don't like is the text around your name.. it's a little distracting o_o I think it would look good without the two notebook holes too.. or if there were two more holes and a little more to the left x3 But that doesn't bother at all.

And the icon; brilliant! I have a weak for round text-bubbles, haha. It's really stylish. x3

Haha, I personally like a lot of simple stuff. Thanks for commenting. ;D

@ Wonderwice - Yeah I figured that extra additional text would be annoying, but I didn't know where else to put it, and to get that notebook-feeling I thought that I need to have some kind of handwritten text on the tag. o_o;; The notebook holes are from a texture, and giving us the notebook feeling, so I can't really (or want to) remove it. Adding extra holes means more cropping, which means that the texture would be smaller than the sig. =/ Or then I'd have to do more complicated stuff which I won't bother when the sig is already finished -__-.

I really like your works! You use wonderful colors, beautiful fonts and amazing renders, which all gives lovely and romantic outcomes. The word to describe your sigs is definitely "beautiful".

On this page I've been through my favorites are the blue sig in post #130 [that shade of blue is a drop mouth, and that render is beautiful <3], sig in post #133 is like, WOW! and Serated's sig is pure awesomeness. Great text work, great colors and an amazing render, really.

As for your avatars, I like 'em all. ;D

Now, to make this post actually useful; *cough cough* I really like the CG sig in post #147 [Suzaku and Euphie :3], but what I'm pretty much, uhm, detesting xD are the colors. They're just too bright and too "fist-in-the-eye". The sig is great, but the colors aren't really working. It's not that easy to combine yellow and pink. So my advice... no, my request [lol] is to work on those colors a bit, cause that sig is a wonderful piece of work in my opinion. As unoriginal -when we're talking about CG- as it is, I'm seeing dark purple and green there...
...and my obsession with purple color has nothing to do with it >3]

*gasp* I can't believe I'm gonna post this, as I'm not as nearly as qualified to C&C gfx artists, but heck, I'm having a brave day today, lol. So yeah, I hope you won't mind anything... Keep up the great work! ^^

AH,nice to see that you're still doing well with your creations...Haven't been in this section for a long time,lol...But now I have more free time,so I said - why not taking a look to my favorite set makers...
And here I am...Gonna start commenting with the last one you created,and then I'll follow up with every new creation you place here...

Here,goes,the last one would be...post #150,if I realized it correctly...
First of all,allow me to notice your improvement...
During past 6 months you seem to be creating sets on a whole new level,they are sort of different from what I remember,and I love the sound of this...
Congratulations,you caught my attention once again xD

Now,let's see what you have there...
Hmmm,to be truly honest,I really love the look of the first one,and the first version of it too...
It has a good feeling to it when actually character seems to jump,with face turned up...
This upside-down really loses that effect tho...
Explanation:
http://img142.imageshack.us/img142/4967/lbjumpinginmotionzz7.png

This one is absolutely great...it's not perfect,but is good enough...
I really love the effects in it,they are going well with the complete mood of the siggy,and are especially going well with the characters movement,allowing us to see what kind of move is that..
Character placement is good,and balance of the sig is at it's top...
Borders are going well with the sig,matching it's colors,so it's another plus for you...
Only thing I'm confused about is that other head beyond the characters back,perhaps it would be better without that facey...?

Flipped upside-down however,is good too,but lacks the good feeling of it,because movement of character in that pose is completely unnatural,unless it's in water,and since your background doesn't give even a hint about being in water,I think it failed in getting the actual mood for it,unlike the previous version of it...

So yeah,I love previous version more xD

Ah,the should-have-been-entry is good too...Not the best,but it's still good...
Now,first of all,you shouldn't call your own work a trash,really...
Every kind of art is beautiful and good,being gorgeous or being plain ugly,none of them are trash...Ones art may look ugly,but at the same time may be professionally done while coloring,effecting and such,you just have to find that "something" that makes it good...It may not be the best thing ever,but just like that,it should be appreciated because of work and time spent on creating it...
Now,for actual comments...
I don't see what's so trashy about it...
Character placement is good,but you could've make in more visible,if you know what I mean...Character kind of drowns in sigs effects,and it is clearly seen that the focus should remain on it,not on effects...
Effects are nicely pulled out,giving sort of energy burts feeling around it,especially with white dots placed inside of it...
I especially like the lightingt-way of the effect,that goes lighlty from character up till darkest parts of the sig sides...I don't know professional names,lol,so I'm only stating how I feel about it,heh
It's simple as that...

The last one is pretty catchy too,lol...
It's sort of...cute and adorable,despite the characters reaction...
Effects are niely pulled out,I like them,and combined with the character placement gives sort of,small 3D-ish look,which is highly good...
Letter placement is well chosen,and color and font of letter is really matching with the mood of the siggy...
Dunno what else to say about this one,tho,sorry...

Also,sorry for skipping the ava comments,I don't really know what to say about them,and saying only things such as - Great,I like it - will make me feel sort of lame...Oh well...

Closing note: Very good...I like your creations so far,thus saying that...and I always say what I mean,so....
Also,vectoring,lightning,brushing and such...I don't know the difference between those terms,lol *feels ashamed* ,so I'm stating the way I see it...Hope you don't mind it..?
Hehe...missed my commments *puppy eyes* ...?

Lol,anyhow,as I've said already,you've really improved,alot...Don't let the bad days got to you,your sets are never failing to amaze me...
I'll be looking forward to see more...

EIDT: I've just realized how longie-long-astic this reply was o.O'
Lol,hope you didn't got too bored while reading all this T_T

Now,for your latest post...
Let's see...
On first glow,I really love the outcome of it...

Now,for the deeper look:
Now,now *smiles* hehe,this is outstanding...
Completely beautiful..the characters placement is good,and the focus on them remained untouched the by rest of the sig..
Background image is great,I especially love the mystic fade-away look of it,giving out sort of mysterious feeling to complete sig...
I especially love the lighting effect on the bottom,it's going well with the complete mood of the sig...
Balance is on it's top,and flow of the sig is just amazing...
Aside note: I take the flow differently than most artists do,but I think that from all my comments you've realized what I mean by that ^^
Txt is well placed,and I love the font...hehe,fancy <33

This one is absolutely stunning! <3 Perfect in every way. Colours, blending, background.. brilliant. I adore the pattern on the right side.

Oh, and the icons you posted a little back are very sexy ;D

Now for your last sig..I like the background but the image looks dull/blurry and its face looks oversharpened. o_o; Also, because it's so light I can't really figure out what image it is xD But it looks like a difficult image to work with. Love the background though. x3

Keep it up Megami nyamo~! :3

Ah,finally some free time ^^
Let's see what you have there...

Heh,I love the one you created for me,but I've already explained everything through PM so you know how I feel about it...
Don't worry much about the outcome,I love it the way it is...

The second one is le magnifique!!
Perfect in every possible way...
Character position creates a perfect focus on it,and is merged with the background effects,like soooo good...
I love the background,without unnecessary effects creates a perfect balance...
Sig itself has a beautiful feeling to it,making that certain flow appear,as always...
Txt is nicely placed,and very stylish font makes it great...
Borders might have been with different color than white,but assuming that it might ruin the beauty of it,leave it as it is...
Overall great,magnificent...
May I ask you to place this one in my blog,beside the other one you created earlier,under my very favorite sigs blog entry...?
I'll give you credit,as always...

The last one is pretty good too...
Character might be drowning in background,losing it's focus...
Background is great,I love the effecting in it,nicely created,but might be overdone because of the character...
I'm on loss of words,dunno what else I could say about this one *smacks head* forgive the lousy comment over this one =P

Anyhow,keep up <3

The first one looks better now.

And the last one is pretty. Just needs more motion in the sides. But don't bother about that.
Your SOTW entry...well, I can't make much out of it. Only a second ago did I notice that he's got his face up and the neck is showing [is that even a 'he'?]

@ Wonderwice - It was an annoying image to work with, I surprised myself how I managed to make it. D: It should lay around in the request thread somewhere. But mm, thank you. ♥
@ Hamashimura - Yes of course you can put it up in my blog *feels so flattered* xD
@ Karuto - It's a he. And well I don't like the sig very much so I won't touch it, but thanks for the C&C anyway!

Very annoying to work with. She is laying... and I didn't know how to fill up the background and then I had to change the colour to pink it because that's what the requester wanted... but in overall I'm satisfied with what I could make. Took me 1h 30 mins. :D

[Edit] Made an avatar for good measure.

Thank you very much...I have placed it in that entry,it truly deserves to be there <3

Ah,this fresh,new one is pretty amazing...
On first glow I saw no differences between two versions of it,but on closer look I've realized that overall blurring is different on those two...

I love more the second version,kind of clearer then first one,which seems a little bit blurry...
Again,you have created one truly beautiful sig...
Overall great...character position is good,and the look on her face is...just wow xD
Lol for that...had no idea how to express myself with that...
Anyhow,I really love the background...
It's gorgeous,and full of emotions,and effects in it are only making it even more beautiful...
Complete flow of the sig is amazing,and I just love how the complete background matches with the character expression...
Nicely balanced,and,again,it has this nice feeling to it...
Dunno how to express it,but it feels sort of...smexy and special o.O'
Txt placement is good,and the coloring matches with the sig,simply going with the flow...Hehe,I like the fancy look of it xD

Overall,amazing...keep up ^^

Hey Megu Megu, yeah I'll call you by your old name.. well nick xD

You still have the same kind of style, it's really pretty and clean. You always have a nice lighting to it and interesting backgrounds and effects.
I'm only going to comment the last three.

First, I'll begin with the last :p
Kyoya signature - All in all it has a very interesting background which catches the eye. But I miss depth in the signature and the lighting you used doesn't match, with what natural lighting would look like. But that's really detailwork ofcourse.. I'm just being nit-picky >_>'
The matching avatars look really good.. no further comment, in fact I won't comment on any of your other avatars, because they always look really good :3

Raiken - It's interesting.. hmm...It has good depth and the abstract lighting effects are interesting, but the character itself is too bright and a bit too sharp.

FierceFeli - The first version is the best one. It has great depth, the colors are awesome, the effects just match... The whole thing just comes together. Really really great looking signature. Though the second version, her skin looks awesome, a bit flat, but really goodlooking. And it looks a bit sharper, which takes away the depth, which is a pitty.

Keep up the great work! ;3

How can you get it to Megu Megu when I didn't even have 'u' in my username?

You're probably right about the light on the Hibari one. I was confused with where I should have put the light source.

Is this better? (One lighter and one darker version)

Ah,very nice...I like it,character positioning is pretty good,and I like the overall look of it...
Sig itself is very cute,and I like the background mixing up with the character,especially on sleeves...very nice..
Background itself is pretty eye-candy,and I just love the way you used effects here,especially the lighting part <3 ...
Nicely balanced,with such a beautifull feeling to it,I can't express it with words,simply,I am speachless...
Only thing I dislike,might be the border,too jumping out from the siggy,but seeing it as it is,I can say that it's not bad at all...
Well,this is only my opinion...
I love the txt,especially the different colored idea <3
Overall great...

That's not so strange,when I talked with friends about your creations,I called you Megi xD

*cough*
Now...I like this one (2nd version) better,so I shall leave comment on that...
Very first creation was so of strange looking,because the ligh effects was comming from bellow,changing sig completely...
This one,with light effect from above is making it more lovely,and definitely gives a good mood to it...
Mainly because the shadows on character are placed so that it's seen that light is comming from above,so it's only natural that this version would be better ^^
I like it...
Character pose,and overall expression is pretty darn good,and is nicely combined with the background image and effecting completely...
Light effect,as I've already said,is great,and detailed background is pretty much nicely going along with the complete mood...
I especially love how the bg image is blurred more than character,which clearly leaves the focus on him,and I'm definitely satisfied with the txt...
Nicely placed,with pretty catchy font <3

And Reborn! is totally amazing...

Overall,amazing,as usual...keep up the superb work <3

The lighting looks much better now indeed. And I think the lighter version looks better, because in the darker version the background is a little bit too dark.

And I guess Megu, because Mega Mega makes you sound like a Mecha, that's my excuse anyway.

I love the avvies that u made , especially the 4th one . Its a shame do
you could've put L O V E , as a text on the 4th avvie . The 1st one is really unique it shows a particular view of a character . the 3rd one shows emotion and I really liked it . But anyways do , I like the 4th one the best (put the txt L O V E in pink or red it would be 10x better . ^__^)

On the first one I like the focus on the face and it's

maybe make it smooth and put some tiny text

...................... XD
...you be one of the four signature God's for me...

LOL...seriously,huuuuuge wow for your work...
Heh,this will keep me busy for some time ^^
Tho I'm wondering how come no one replied to latest works...hmmmm...

Post 177:
What the...?Hardest,yes,but worst...?
Nah,I wouldn't call it worst,I wouldn't even call it bad...
The last version of it would be my favorite,since the previous ones,with add-on on right side are drawing attention away from the signature...
With overall nicely looking,I can say that it's a very good,and quite creative siggy...
I love the characters placement,especially their pose,it's sort of heartwarming...
And it sort of screams Ruthless song over here (by Kajiura Yuki) since it's really created in the mood of that song ^^
Anyhow,I love the background too...nicely created,perhaps too much of effects,but that's not necessarily the mistake,since I highly believe that without them,it would be nasty and sort of bad...
Merging colors in background are just giving another beautiful mood to it,creating this certain flow and balance in this,and are nicely pulled out...
Sig itself is sort of "soft" if you know what I mean,and that's another reason why I'm loving it...
Text placement is pretty good,and coloring of it is great...
I like the idea of changed "H" letter,very nice...
Overall,I don't know why you think of it as bad,since it's a very good,and quite unique one... ^^

Post 189:
First one - Ah,the Mewtwo ^^ Nice...Overall good...character placement is good,and overall gorgeous...
Background is pretty good,simple looking with brilliant effects...
I'm especially admiring the lighting effect,it gives out fearfull feeling to the sig (fear Mewtwo),because of characters pose and look in his eyes...
Sig itself is overall brutally balanced,and beautiful in every way...
Again,a feeling of a song seems to be hidden inside of this (wow,I'm so weird,am I..?)...This time it's A Song of Storm and Fire (Kajiura again,lol),but really...It soooo screams that song...dunno why...
Anyhow,I don't know what kind of effect is on the left from Mewtwo,so I'll call it buble-effect (silly me)...
So,for the buble-effect...I really like it...It fills up the left side completely,along with the "true" bg image effecting,and that's another plus to it...
Text is pretty nice,tho some fancier looking one might be better...
That's only a suggestion,not a flaw ^^
Overall,amazing,I love this one...

Second one - on first glance,I must say that there is something wrong with it...
Let's see why I think so,shall we...?
Character placement and pose is good,so that's not it...
Background...ah,so that's why I think so...
Bg image is good,but I kind of dislike effecting in it,since they are not going along with the overall look of the character,which ruins that certain flow...
You did it well,character is emerged with effects nicely and effects are amazing,but colors aren't quite going along with the character,if you know what I mean...This leaves me with desire to stop commenting over this one,fearing that you might get offended by my honesty...
But don't get me wrong,sig itself is good,but I find the balance between background and character ruined with the difference in colors...
Sorry if this offended you...

Third one,ver.2:
Yes,I'm choosing second version,because it's slightly better...
There's no much of a difference,but for some reason I find the second one better...
Aaaaaanyhow...
Magnificent,and very cute ^^
Character is good,and her expression matches the complete mood of the siggy...
I can't help but to think that I've saw here somewhere...???

Bg image is nice,and without too much effects,which satisfies me very much...
Amazingly merged with the character leaves me breathless,and the text is just lovely...
Nice words and I love how you used your username with those words,very nice...
Oh,oh,oh,ans the crown is just lovely ^^
Sadly,I don't know what else to say about this one,but I really love it...

Post 190,ver.2:
Hmmm...I can't help but to think that this one was pretty random...?
Anyhow,I like it...Character is good,and her face expression goes well with the mood of the signature...
Background is nicely created,and effects in it are pretty good...
I'm confused with the eye on the left tho,kind of "jumps out" from the sig...?
Oh well,that's only my opinion...
Other than that,it's lovely...
I love the circular objects placed in it,it gives sort of "randomness" mood to the sig,and brushed-looking background is simply good...
Fancy text placement is well chosen,and coloring of it is very good,added 12 dots is giving it sort of random feeling as well...
Sig shape 'n size differs from most things you've created,but is giving this one another unique-ness,and makes me liking it even more...

Oh well...that would be it from me...
I hope you wasn't bored by reading my words,and I thank you for reading it...
And,as always,keep up the grand work ^^
I'll comment as soon as I find time,as always...

Pretty horrible, no? It had no depth and so I fixed it.

The signatures in post #190 were made by studying one of Serated's signatures.

Got nothing special to show, really. Signature block.

Thank you Des and Myst for the comments.

And I had promised to re-make the signature for Hamashimura. It only took me a month? ^^;

This one I like much, much better. I had to use that stock because it had such a nice flow, and tried out another vector style signature with it. 8D It says RahXephon Reika Mishima, and Hamashimura flipped upside down and horizontally.

I love the warm colours. :3
And the flow is wonderful in this. Did you create pen tool shapes near her? Because, well whatever they are, they make the flow much better. 8D
You maybe could have sharpened the focal area a bit more.
And the left side, near the text looks a little empty. Maybe you should have made the text a tad bigger so it could fill that space up?
Like the border as well, good idea on putting the fatter side on the left to take up negative space.

hmm its wonderful, wish I could make something as good as that. *0*

The shape to the left of her is a pentool shape I created, yesh. :3
I cut the canvas by 30px, it was originally 420px, now it's 390. And textwork textwork... I'll try to learn from you. D: Thanks for the comment, Dottie. ♥

Oh wow the way you blend light and dark is amazing! I love how the stars appear to be coming out of the image in your most recent one Lovebeat, great job! Also how the light reflects on either side yet gradually brightens on the right hand side of the image focusing in on the character is really well done! I can't wait to see more of your work!

Love. But the c4d effects on the far right are a bit messy. Other than that GJ.
