View Full Version : Midnight's Sigs

02-13-2008, 02:26 PM
Here is some of my signature work. Feel free to comment and offer tips on how I can improve.

Enjoy ^_^






02-13-2008, 02:38 PM
I absolutely love the Fate Stay Night and Gaara sig. Gaara's sig especially. ;3 Blends with the background quite well and it's just pretty awesome.

I'm going to post some slightly older work
(Hope there isn't a picture Limit per post.)



02-13-2008, 03:32 PM
Oh, wow, You're awesome, I like the Gaara and Ichigo one's Look like they're coming out at you. lol, A bit realistic. I want to see more. =3

02-13-2008, 09:37 PM
Wow. I think that the majority of your signatures far excel my own. My only way of giving advice for improvement is to work on the colors so they go along with your blending and such.

02-14-2008, 09:00 AM
I love the Ichigo siggy!
*Anyone who makes an Ichigo siggy gets reps from me,hes my addiciton(lol)*
Anyway I don't think I can give any advice really.....=_=
Anyway I alos love the two DeathNote siggies so great job!!

02-14-2008, 11:47 AM
Midnight, I really like your Ichigo sig, the Sasuke sig and the two Death Notes ones. The backgrounds match up with the pictures nicely :)

02-14-2008, 11:51 AM
These are so cool!!! You couldn't possibly improve them!! They're perfect!

02-14-2008, 05:33 PM
These are so cool!!! You couldn't possibly improve them!! They're perfect!

I'd say they're far from perfect..But I appreciate all the feedback people!!

Shook off some rust (Had a lot of homework this week ^_^) And made this for the most recent request in the Sig/Avatar Request Thread. Couldn't use all 3 picures requested in one sig though, I don't know how to do multiple focals


My friend challenged me to a Street Fighter match yesterday after he found his old Sega. Needless to say, I got owned, but I was inspired to make this sprite ^_^


Also, made this for a request on another forum, but I wasn't chosen TT_TT
So if anyone wants it, it's up for grabs, I'll change text of course


02-15-2008, 03:15 PM
Ohhh Street Fighter rulez!(i've played before and of course got owned to)lol.

Its awsome.

The Sasuke siggy,is nice and I wonder why it didn't get chosen,its completely awsome.
The Bg is just awsome and the render kawaii dood^^(lol)
The text is terrific,your very awsome at this.

02-15-2008, 03:35 PM
Street Fighter is my fave Sega game!! (I played again my friend and I won all of the fights... ^_^)

It's shame that the Sasuke sig didn't get choosen Midnight; they don't know what they're missing out on. It rocks!! Good stuff man :)

02-15-2008, 05:09 PM
Hmm.. I like your other sigs way more than the new Sasuke one. ><; For some reason, I just don't like it.

I've noticed in all your sigs, the composition is great. It flows. BUT, the text needs major work.

02-16-2008, 12:08 AM
@Heiko - Thankies for the comments. I'm glad to know I'm not the only one who loses at Street Figher (Except someone always have to lose) ^_^

@ Red - Thanks for opinions. No doubt, you would own me in Street Figher. If only I could roll!

@ ClowAngel - Thanks for the Cnc. I do have a serious Typo issue ^_^

@ JumpforLuck - Long time no see!

Made this for another request..But he didn't like it. So I'm stuck with it. I'm trying to get the hang of these vector anime sigs. .But I'm pretty much suck. Although my current did come out ok. This one..Meh. I think it's beyond repair


02-16-2008, 04:24 PM
Siggies looks great!
So I really don't know what to say. Umm well I don't like that Konata (is that her name?) is a little bit blurry on the right side of her hair. o.o Background is nice, a little empty but it looks good this way. There's something on the top right also which I think should get removed... x_x

Uuhh. I just said that I don't know what to say and still I said plenty of stuffs. XDD Oh well, great work, keep it up!

02-16-2008, 07:07 PM
Thankies Termed
And Megami (Who knew what to say, and still said much ^_^)

So I discovered the amazingness of Serated's extractions today. And made this


And two more, one fails, (Lucky Star Hates me) and the other I really like



02-16-2008, 07:09 PM
Okay, now this new sig I'm not liking very much. That smudgy watery look on the right side of her head is just funky and seems very out of place. Basically, I agree with Megami-san. And once again, I suggest you work on font choice and text placement.

02-17-2008, 12:06 PM
More credit to Serated~

Awesome extract


More credit to Serated on this one!
I <3 your extracts~


And then this strange Rk one I made on a whim. I can't get the darn colors right. Any suggestions??




02-18-2008, 03:37 PM
Think I decided on this one for the Kenshin sig. Still want better colors though. TT_TT


And yet again..Used Serated's awesome extracts for this one, made for a request. Simple..But I think it's cool


Mira Kaiba
02-19-2008, 11:13 AM
Wow, you have a lot of awesome sigs here. I love the colors and affects you are using in the background. My faves are the Death Notes Sigs and the first Fate/StayNight sigs. The last version of the sig you posted looks the best. I like the colors the most in this one. Awesome job - can't wait to see more of your great works! ^^

02-22-2008, 01:01 PM

You have an uber hot sig there ^_^

Most of my stuff has been crap lately..Which makes me sad TT_TT

But I do like this first Ichigo one quite a bit




02-22-2008, 02:24 PM
Absolutely amazing, how long does it take you to do one sig?

Love the Kensin / Koruo one keep it up! :cool:

02-23-2008, 01:59 PM
Absolutely amazing, how long does it take you to do one sig?

Love the Kensin / Koruo one keep it up! :cool:

I usually spend about an hour a sig, since most of mine are really basic stuff.

By the way, if you want to use that Kenshin Koruo one feel free too. I could add text as well.

Made this for a request, but it was not liked


And made this weird thing from a photograph my friend took ^_^


02-23-2008, 03:57 PM
Midnight, I like your Ichigo sig. It's amazing. The background is well done and the picture is great. Hope to see some more siggies soon.

02-23-2008, 04:43 PM
Wow, awesome work! I love them, especially the Kenshin one's *yeah, I'm a hardcore RK fan*, but my favorite is in your 9th post: Kenshin and Kaoru. It's really beautiful! *if it's free to use,please let me know!* I'm sure you're gonna improve your skills even more with all these awesome sig-masters around. And the girl in the 20th post is extremely cool too. Argh, I'm so random, I can't even follow myself. Point is, great job! Keep it up!

02-24-2008, 02:36 PM
Thankies Red and poison.ivy.

Here's my most recent

Kenshin Sprite For my Jsp profile


Guilty Gear


02-24-2008, 02:53 PM
Ah, these stuff are good. But there's some stuff I'd like to suggest. If you're going to make the banner, don't make the background so blury and blotch it up with random spots of colour and whatnot. You should have a unique way of colour coordination in order for the banner to stand out.

Nonetheless, you need to sharpen out the render itself in order for it not to be blury. Most of them are. There's some banners that I really like but most of them have a lot of work to do. n_n

My evaluation for all of your work, I'll give it a 7/10. Don't be hatin'. D:

02-24-2008, 04:47 PM
Your work is very lovely
And I love the background that you used on some of them
Anyway Nice job.

02-24-2008, 09:15 PM
Nariko I never hate good advice ^_^

And thanks Miss. Bun Bun..Glad you stopped by ^_~

Now I can't guarantee my gifts will be liked.

Lol, in fact I'm guessing odds are you won't like them since I can't make avatars. Never made a 100 by 100 before, and I still don't have a clue. But I'm going to make gifts anyway! Take that!!

So Hieko..I heard you like Ichigo :p


Do with it what you will. I won't feel bad if you don't like it :)

Also, Vertical flipped that upside down one because my friend didn't like it, even though I did..Got this.


02-24-2008, 09:23 PM
They look rather plain, imo. Though the background on the Ichigo one complements him. Nice effects you got with the clouds and pen tool. Makes it look nicer.

But yeah, too simple for my tastes. Not that that's bad. ;3

02-24-2008, 09:25 PM
What do ya mean i won't like it???????
I Love Ichigo,hes liek my all time fav and that siggy their is like the kawaiiest ever!
Thankies!I love it very much^^

02-25-2008, 09:50 AM
I agree that they're a bit plain. Ichigo looks great in those colors. And the second one, hmmmm, some text maybe? =) They're very very nice.

02-25-2008, 03:42 PM
Looks good for the most part. The Garaa(sp?) is my favorite. Needs to be made sharper looking in some instances though.

02-25-2008, 05:14 PM
Looks good for the most part. The Garaa(sp?) is my favorite. Needs to be made sharper looking in some instances though.

You have no sig TT_TT

Would you maybe like one of these?? ^_^ (Mwhaha! Gift number 2!)

Not the best I know, I'm stuck with lots of homework to do, so it's hard to sit down and make something


@ Yurka..I like to refer to them as minimalistic ^_^

It really is more challenging then it looks, because you need good flow, colors, and composition to make up for the simplistic finish.

02-25-2008, 06:26 PM
Your new work, I like it especially the coloured version. Only few things for it to look a little better is sharpen the render a little and use better text arrangement.


02-25-2008, 07:41 PM

Wow thanks I love GTO so yeah I'll take one and use it, thanks a lot.

02-27-2008, 04:25 PM
Wow..Colors have not been my thing lately ^_^

Verily V


02-27-2008, 05:52 PM
Mmm, nice nice. Though I'm not a big fan of desaturated sigs. I seriously loved the works you first posted when you made the topic, but now they seem to be kinda uninspired lately.

But yeah, I'd love to see more stuff like what's on the first page. :3

Oh and that GTO sig is pretty sweet, nice composition and colors. 9/10 from me. <3

02-27-2008, 08:16 PM
I love them! I really like the simplicity of the pixel art, and the highlights of that one Yagami Light signature at the beginning.

02-28-2008, 04:27 PM
V is great! Just maybe too plain again? Some text and red color would be a great final touch. And that two GTO sigs are also very nice, I like the colored one better. =)

02-28-2008, 05:35 PM
Thanks Omniking, glad to hear you like them ^_^

@Yurka - A lot of my stuff has been kind of uninspired lately. I think it's because I haven't watched any anime in awhile, lol. This V sig though, it was actually very "inspired." I did it as a request for one of my good friends. Besides my current, it's probably the most time I've ever spent on a sig. The flow needs a little work, but I really think I got the depth I was going for. Adding more effects or text (Since I suck at typo) will only subtract from the depth.

@ Ivy - Like I said, text would ruin it..But some sort of red addition is a good idea, I'll have to try it ^_^ Thanks for the input

Here's one I did for a request. I am losing my touch at anime tags, and doing all these sprites isn't helping!!


Shirai Ryu Scorpion
02-29-2008, 01:39 PM
How do you make it all crisp? And graphical? I've been trying to figure it out for quiet some time now. Is it a lot of rendering and color schematics? I bet so, I like them all.

02-29-2008, 04:38 PM
@ Kuruto - Thankies for stopping by. If you want to use the Shana sig please feel free to

@Shirai Ryu Scorpion - Lol, well as of late my stuff hasn't been that graphical imo ^_^

But to make a tag look crisp, it's mainly about using the right colors, and then of course, sharpening the focal. If you're focal is sharp (relative to the background) and the colors selection is right, You're all set.

Mwhaha! And now a gift.

Serated, feel free to do with this what you will. Don't use it if you don't like it, since I know you make your own wicked awesome stuff ^_^

Thanks for all the extracts


02-29-2008, 04:42 PM
Oiii, now this I really like it. I like the overall effect and the effects around the render and lighting. It's one of your nicest imo. Plus, it's rather cute as well.

Keep up the good work, man. You're pretty awesome. ;3

02-29-2008, 05:07 PM
You + Saber = Awesomeness I am going to wear this as long as possible. I really appreciate it Midnight.

02-29-2008, 11:44 PM
Midnight RRiiiiiddaa how's it going dude! I like way you blend the colors in the background with the characters, they really stand out! I also like the black & white sigs.

03-06-2008, 03:40 PM
Wow..Just got done watching Code Geass. Watched the whole thing in 2 days. I don't know if I like watching anime that fast, or if it's more enjoyable drawing it out a bit more. Either way..Code Geass is wicked awesome.

Lulu = Teh Smex


03-07-2008, 08:38 AM
Lelouch looks *hot* up there! Plus, it's purple XD I like it, that smudgy effect is very interesting. And the text placement is good. Nothing less from you, Midnight! =) And yeah, Code Geass is awesome =3

03-07-2008, 08:48 AM
Wow..Colors have not been my thing lately ^_^

But you pwn at everything else.

the one you made for Knightmare is really nice! I liked what you did to the background there. Make a tut for it? :3 i got a bit of an idea on how you did that, but no.

and the Code Geass set,
Holy wow. Nice work with the liquifying tool!

03-07-2008, 01:32 PM
@Ivy - Purple owns! And so does Code Geass ^_^

@Coob - Hehe..You noticed the liquify. You see right through my techniques, so No Tut for You!! ^_~

@Suzuka - Thanks for stopping by. I couldn't help but notice you don't have a sig. (Gift alert!! ) Would you like to use this one I made for you until you find something you like?? Text doesn't look so good now that I look at it..But I can always change it :D


Edit: I hope the image is showing up..I can't tell..my computer is crap ^_^

03-07-2008, 02:41 PM
OMG you're so desperate XD I like the sig, the girl is atractive, the text is fine imho. And I like those... curvy lines. Very nice, and it was pretty fast o.O I'll suppose you're a super talent!

Purple rocks! <3

Mira Kaiba
03-08-2008, 12:11 AM
Nice, you have some more awesome sigs here! I like pretty much all of them, but I especially like the Saffa, M Demon, and Serated sigs. The colors are so rich, and I really love the way your effects come out. They blend so well with the characters in the front. You really do a great job blending everything together, and your coloring is fantastic. I'm not sure about the blurred edges on the last sig; I think they may be too contrasting to the rest of the sharpened sig. Overall, you have beautiful sigs - you should make a tutorial! ^^

03-08-2008, 05:11 AM
@Suzuka - Thanks for stopping by. I couldn't help but notice you don't have a sig. (Gift alert!! ) Would you like to use this one I made for you until you find something you like?? Text doesn't look so good now that I look at it..But I can always change it :D


Edit: I hope the image is showing up..I can't tell..my computer is crap ^_^

I'm so happy and glad that you took time to make me a sig i'm so happy thank you very much!:D Thank you for the wonderfull gift.:love: You can always change the text but i'm happy as the way it is.:D

03-08-2008, 11:58 AM
@Ivy - I'm not desperate!! ^_^ Or Am I?? 0_o

@Yurka - Lulu = <3! Your sig is one of the things that inspired me to make mine actually. Wish I could have gotten the Geass in there like yours, but the render wasn't that high quality.

@Mira - Thank much for all the kind words! I wasn't sure about the blurred edges either..but I needed something in the corners to get the size to look right, lol. Tutorial isn't a bad idea, since even a bad tutorial like the one I would make should be able to help some people in some way. ^_^

@Suzuka - Twas no problem. Please enjoy ^_^

Ok, now lets see. I tried this last night. I found this cool Ichigo stock and was going to make a sig, but it wasn't working out. So I just kinda made some shape layers. lol. It's my first large piece, so It's ok that it's bad


And this is a request I did for Malifactor. Still not sure on text, as in, I don't know how I'm going to add it in there yet. I'll post the other version later. Hopefully he'll like it :D


03-08-2008, 12:08 PM
Hmmm, Ichigo is not bad. Very interesting, I must say. Tho the bg seems a bit... odd. Too sharp maybe? And the 2nd one is very nice too. Colors blend perfectly, as always, and I love those clouds. Honestly, I think the text is missing, but you could also mess it up easily... O.o I know, not helping =) Try to put it around that white line.

03-08-2008, 12:26 PM
Well thank you very much, Midnight!

But... where IS the text? =D

I appreciate it. I'm trying to learn how to do this stuff with Gimp, since I don't have PS or anything...


But thanks!

03-08-2008, 01:43 PM
The ichigo design is new for me never saw something created in that way but it looks cool.

03-10-2008, 09:57 PM
Don't ask what this one is...I don't know ^_^


And the 2nd version the Kingdom Hearts Sig


03-11-2008, 10:43 AM
OK, I wont ask... ^^;
OK, I will. What in the world is it?! XD I see something blond haired and some question marks on the sides. But all in all, it looks decent. What ever it is XD *lol*

03-17-2008, 08:02 PM
OK, I wont ask... ^^;
OK, I will. What in the world is it?! XD I see something blond haired and some question marks on the sides. But all in all, it looks decent. What ever it is XD *lol*

Lol! I really don't know what it is. :p

Marth isn't so good in Brawl..But I made a sig of him anyway. This is from a screenshot of my in-game..So that's why its kind of a bad render


And then did this LotR sig since Poison and I both like Lord of the Rings :rolleyes:


03-17-2008, 08:52 PM
I love your Fate siggy.
The colours really match with the image and the rest of your siggys are pretty awesome!!~~

03-17-2008, 09:06 PM

I believe its an Assassin Cross from Ragnarok online: http://planetrenders.net/renders/displayimage.php?pos=-2628

Mira Kaiba
03-19-2008, 05:24 PM
Very nice sigs - I especially like the Lord of the Rings sig - the effects are awesome, and I love the colors and lighting on the sides. I also like the sig above it, especially the effects around the sword. Very nice colors as well, and good lighting sense. Great sigs! ^^

03-19-2008, 05:58 PM
I can't believe I never looked at your sig thread before Midnight Rider as your work is very nice ^^
I especially liked the 2nd version of the Kingdom Hearts sig that you did for Malifactor as it all blends together really well and the colours are amazing ... and the other one that caught my eye was the LOTR sig that you did, although not too sure on the white line through the left hand side of it and the other mirror on the other side. Apart from that though the colouring really suits and everything else is fine, it could just be my opinion on the line so no worries.

The lighting and colouring that you use in all your sigs is really good and the effects that you use really fit well and blend in great. Keep up the good work and really look forward to seeing more of your work, well done ^^

03-20-2008, 09:20 AM
Yeppers. It's Assassin Cross, Thankies Serated.

PhoenixChan - Hehe, glad you could make it!! I myself wasn't sure on the whole "mirror" thing..But I decided to keep it ^_^

Haven't done much lately...But tried on another of Serated extracts. I like the style..But I just can't put the finishing touches on, so it looks bad TT_TT

If anyone wants to collab. and take a stab at the .psd let me know..I need help ^_^




03-20-2008, 09:29 AM

Holy crap. I shall now dub you Liquifying GOD!
im not sure much, since this one looks perfect =D but the lights may be a bit too strong. i like the third one, but the colors arent good looking at my eye's opinions.

Tho i do wonder how you made the background. Yeahhhh~
Nice work, srsly!

03-20-2008, 12:23 PM

And then did this LotR sig since Poison and I both like Lord of the Rings
Ohhh, it's awesome! Gandalf rules! Great colors, it fits him so well! Yeah, I inspired that one XD

The 1st sig looks very good, but I agree with Unli: the light might be a bit too strong. 2nd sig is okay, but a few more details in color would make it perfect, imho. His eyes look great. 3rd sig I like the best, it's very nicely balanced. The only thing I dislike on this one is that it looks to.... hmmm, warm? But is definitely is the best of these three.

03-20-2008, 07:22 PM
Last post in awhile (lol well 1 week) since I'm going to Kansas. Save me!!! :(

Unli - Lol. Liquefying God! Sounds cool indeed! Although there wasn't that much liquefying. I just can't stand the colors..And I wish I had thought the background out. That background is just one solid color. Eww. The lighting is strong so you might miss the fact that teh background sucks!

Ivy -

Gandalf sig = Inspired by you :p

I actually like the black and white version most since it takes away from the nonexistent background work. ^_^

Here's 2 old sigs I made since I have to continue the trend of always posting a sig when I comment here :ninja:


03-27-2008, 02:53 PM
Wow..Finally back home. Spending a week using my Grandma's huge resolution PC monitor has made everything on my Computer look really weird.

Made this from one Serated's extracts since they're so delicious ^_^

If anyone wants to use it just let me know


03-28-2008, 12:35 PM
Shiek = <3

There is a severe shortage of Shiek tags out there on the interwebs!

To remedy this problem: I challenge all Gfx artists to get out there and go make a Shiek tag!! :laugh:

Here's what mine came out as


And made this playing around


03-29-2008, 06:27 PM
Experimenting with a new style that I make make a tut for. I like the Result.




03-29-2008, 08:18 PM
God I love it..... Make a tutorial so that I may learn from you. Or you will never get an extract off me again.....

03-31-2008, 09:33 AM
God I love it..... Make a tutorial so that I may learn from you. Or you will never get an extract off me again.....

Ahh!! I must have those extracts!!

Never made a tut before, and I"m finding this tag to be kind of complicated to work with since it looks like crap until you start smudging it. I don't think it's a good candidate for a tut. You shouldn't have to rely on mass smudging :D

2 new ones.

I like the Link one, not the metroid one though.



Iso Help on coloring. That's your que Unli.

03-31-2008, 09:38 AM
I really love the Link sig ^^ I really dun know about the Samus sig though >.<; Otherwise, keep up the great and awesome works of yours!

03-31-2008, 10:41 AM
Wow, pile of sigs to comment! =)

Like them a lot, nothing more to say.

Again, those liquifying or whatever effects are awesome! And that's a very nice shade of blue.

Well, I don't really know who Shiek is, but you've made him look very mysterious and sneaky, imo. Nice colors and great effects

Wow, they look great! But I like teh 1st one best cuz of that tiny piece of purple which is a great balance to a blue BG and a white character. Awesome! You've a great eye for this things. Or lots of luck XD

Link is great, even the effects look so...drawn! Out of these latest, this one's my favorite. The metroid ones are all okay, but a bit confusing.

All in all, I see an improvement! But that's just me...

Hotarubi Iga
03-31-2008, 11:55 AM
Here is some of my signature work. Feel free to comment and offer tips on how I can improve.

Enjoy ^_^






i love the style of the third one

03-31-2008, 02:23 PM
i love the style of the third one

Thankies :)
I just have to post this. That third sig came up out of nowhere. I was playing around so randomly. I couldn't believe something usable even came out.


MidnightParadise - Thankies much. Like I said, I'm with ya on not really liking the metroid one.

Ivy - <3 Thanks for all the comments <3

03-31-2008, 03:59 PM
Woh your last design is just amazing cant even explain it in words nice job on that one.

03-31-2008, 04:18 PM
Wow! This made me so speechless and my jaw dropped on this one. Man, your sig talents are simply beyond awesome!

04-01-2008, 11:56 PM
Suzuka and MP - Lol. Every once and awhile random playing will actually produce something!!

My sigs = Luck ^_~

Anyway..Tried a new style. I really like it. Too bad I can't figure out how to do it again.


Also made this for a request. I don't like the outcome too much.


04-02-2008, 12:49 AM
Great new sigs...It'll take me ages to reach that level...
and the outcome of the second one IS good. Don't worry about it. There's so much depth in it.

Mira Kaiba
04-02-2008, 01:06 AM
Very nice updates. The animated sig is awesome looking - it's making my mind and eyes crazy! ^^
I like the colors of your sigs very much - they are all very warm for the most part. I especially like the Joshaw sig - there is a lot of depth, and I like the colors and effects surrounding Saber. If you wanted to change something, you might trying making the colors a little more bold - they seem a bit on the light side toward the top of the sig near her face.
Personally, I like the Meteoroid sig a lot - the last one especially. You have a fantastic grip of the liquify tool. ^^
The colors of the Link sig are great - I agree that it almost looks a bit color penciled. Overall a very nice effect, and I like the background.
Awesome works! XD

04-03-2008, 07:52 PM
@Karuto - Glad you like them! And it won't take you ages to reach my level, I'm not that good, and you have Unli to help you ^_^

@Mira Kiba - Thanks a lot for the comments! I'll try highlighting the lighting about more if I have time. Once again, appreciate the CnC

Also, since I lost the request, that Saber sig is up for grabs if anyone would like.

Decided to upload my 65 layer sig. So many layers for such an anti-climatic finish


And a Saber tag that only looks half done TT_TT


04-04-2008, 10:09 AM
The animated ones are... AMAZING! And the others are awesome to, I especially like that new-styled one. But the animated one, specially first is simply spectacular. I am deeply shocked and can't say anything smarter than praising adjectives @.@

04-12-2008, 12:15 AM
Been away with homework and tennis. TT_TT

Made these 2 signs today though, finally.



And this one just recently


04-12-2008, 01:46 AM
First, let me say I have no idea how you even do this so well. I cannot offer any advice, but to say I really like your work. Keep it up, and it is kind of you to offer help to others on here and signatures as well. Peace

04-12-2008, 04:49 AM
Oh, new siggys! =) I like them, Ichigo looks very cool, that liquifying *darn, how the hell do you spell that?!* thing you did looks very powerful. But the last one is my fav, it's very dark and mysterious and just so very you!

04-12-2008, 04:56 AM
I really like your latest siggies Midnight :)

The Ichigo one looks awesome; especially the pic and the background. They are great and the text fits it perfectly. Hope to see some more soon!

04-12-2008, 05:11 AM
My god.
The blade is so damn good looking.
The colors just clicks! Though, overall, its not really fitting my tastes ^^;;

(Will edit once my damn connection allows me to see all the signs you have in here. And the Ichigo sign thats getting some nice responses is making me anxious xD)

I just saw it.
'Snap' was what came out of my mouth then.

04-12-2008, 06:33 PM
TwylightStarr - Thanks for the kind comment, no need to offer advice ^_^

poison.ivy - Hehe, I liked the last one most too. That's what I'm using it!!

Red - Thankies for the comment! I like the text on the Bleach sig too. In fact, I like it more than the rest of sig actually. ^_~

Unli. You're Internet connection misbehaving?? Teach it a lesson!! Or better yet! Teach me a lesson on how you make such great sigs!!

Or help me finish this one. Code Geass. I like how it's coming along, but I don't know where to go from here. I can't add a light source to save my life.


And made this tag here..If anyone is interested in it, I'll make a tut for it. (I know, I always say I'll make a tut, but I never do, but this time I mean it. I've never made a tut, and really need to)


04-13-2008, 03:49 AM
@.@ Code Geass... Purple...
Hmmm, I'm not an expert, but maybe you should liquify something, as you seem to be handling it pretty good lately. But that's just my layman's opinion =) But I like it very much already!

Mira Kaiba
04-13-2008, 03:32 PM
Sweet - I love the Ichigo tag. The effects are awesome, and I love the almost neon lighting. Fantastic sig! I also like the Code Geass sig - the blending of the background and the character is great. I also love the colors. I think that the last one is a little plain looking - maybe add some effects? I really like the placement and the left side background. Overall, awesome sigs!

04-14-2008, 12:09 AM
Wow very nice! I like your style.

04-28-2008, 08:59 PM
Wow very nice! I like your style.

And I like your Rurouni Kenshin avatar! Kenshin Ftw!

Anyway, been really busy with my research paper, which was a nightmare. But it's finally done!! :D

So, since I now have somewhat of a life again, I managed to make these.

Lucky Star: Love it (may current) http://i55.photobucket.com/albums/g152/ShadowHitokiri/Lucky-.png

Hellsing: I sense failure. Never have been able to do a good Hellsing sig


If anyone wants to use, just let me know.

And then this. A small statement of truth.


04-28-2008, 09:16 PM
Firefox totally owns IE.

Anyhoo I like the Lucy sig too. I'm just too sure about the stroke on the object in the bottom left corner and the cracks/lightning look pretty jaggy.

Keep up the great work!

04-29-2008, 03:40 AM


I always really like your background, maybe its my fetish of smudging x3 I like how the color blends and not going too blend-y with the background

I wonder why I didn't see this one O_o;;
Fricking awesome efx here =D

05-07-2008, 08:50 PM
Momi - Firefox so totally owns IE. You know it!!
Unli - Trade you styles any day! I love your current. I can't make simple but pleasing stuff like that at all. I have no eye for composition.

Just put this together...Not really feeling either. I'm in a sig slump



05-12-2008, 08:42 PM
The slump deepens. Lol, but at least my previous two sigs are growing on me



My requester asked for it in Orange/blue as well


I like this one though


I'm getting worse :eek:

05-12-2008, 08:47 PM
Dude this is awesome this is I would love to learn your technique.

05-13-2008, 03:22 AM
Oh, your latest ones are lovely, specially the last one. It's awesome! Maybe too small tho, but I still like it a bunch. And that wonderful green color... Great, great, great. And the b&w one is very cute, simple, but effective. Cut it out, you're NOT getting worse. But the Saber one from post #76 still owns big time!!

05-13-2008, 03:58 PM
Chameleon - Glad you like it. I do have one tut here if you want to give it a try ^_^

Ivy - Thankies for the encouragement <3

Well, now that Sig of the Week is over I can post my entry here. I can't believe I got 1st place!! Thanks for everyone who participated!!

Awesome Extract by Serated


05-14-2008, 12:20 AM
Congragulatins on winning the first SOTW contest! When I first saw that entry, I thought it was by Unli. Now I regret not voting for that one. I voted for Entry G because the simplicity was just amazing. I was so confused out there...

Anyway, I don't understand the purpose of that purple screen near Saber's face. That's why I didn't vote for this one...
Why is it there anyway?

05-14-2008, 05:31 AM
Very nice stuff there Midnight. Your SOTW sig blew my mind when I saw it. It was like the effects and extract were meant to be together lol. I'd definitely would want to see a tutorial of that one. (if its allowed after a SOTW win)

Keep up the smexy 1337ness, your works are great.

05-15-2008, 06:08 PM
Karuto - Thankies! I hope to be as good as Unli one of these days. As for the purple..Purple is my favorite color, so I add it to everything!! But your monitor must be pretty High quality, because I can barely see it on mine.

TreyX - Lol..I know, the extract and background do go well. I got lucky ^_^
I'd bet a tut's allowed...But I don't know if I'm skilled enough to make one. Ps. Hope I don't keep you up too late at night, lol.

Trying something really weird here, and lost the colors. Sorry Serated..A good gift from me will have to wait :p

05-15-2008, 09:40 PM

Oh god, this is just so hot! I really like this style (always do) Magnificent usage of Liquify

Though, imo, the colored lights are the only problem. Nonetheless, powerful sig there~

05-16-2008, 01:04 AM
Wow. Very very nice works! I love the way you use the lines and angles... Congrats on winning SOTW btw...

I need to jump back into the sig saddle..

05-16-2008, 07:58 PM
Unli - Lulu = Auto Hot ^_^
Thanks for teh tip, will try it out

LadyHuntress - Thankies Thaniess. I wish you luck at rejoining the Gfx scene!

Once again..Kinda...Ewww


05-17-2008, 12:05 AM




These things are just AMAZING.
I especially love the firefox signature that you made.
I'm seriously a sucker for those kind of signatures and the color blue...
Also the signature of the week entry that you made, I was gonna vote for that, but every time I was looking at the SOTW thread, I was somewhere else where I was only able to catch a quick glimpse. I was contemplating, but I would have voted for yours.
You seriously must make more tutorials. Maybe a video perhaps? =3

Seriously, these are awesome. I'm always inspired to do better when I see most of your works.

05-17-2008, 06:52 AM

OMG O___O This is magnificent. Nothing less than magnificent!

As for your latest, I agree, it's kinda... wth ^^; That image is odd, and the bg's seems so far away [o.O] You know what I mean, I guess.

But this Lulu... That pic is perfect and you made it even better. Awesome job, bro!

05-18-2008, 03:04 PM
Balence - Thankies much for the kind words! I'm looking to make some tuts, since right now I can't make a sig to save my life, lol.

Ivy - Yep, latest sucks..But Lulu is redemption! <3 Episode 7 is out now I believe!!

Latest junk. Mass color and lighting issues.


05-21-2008, 09:22 AM
Mhhm..The latest junk doesn't look so bad now ^_^

This was a gift to me! WEE!!

Playing around with a stock

My SotW entry for last week that I like very much

05-21-2008, 10:04 AM
Wow, lovely colors on your entry sig! Very interesting, I like it too. Specially cuz her hair is purple x] Second one is great too, colors are very calming and dark, yet warm. And do I have to say how much I like your RK gift?! It's uber awesome, indeed <3

CG 7 is out?! Oh boy, I'm so excited! xD
[I think I'm being a bit too obsessed with that show ^^;]

05-21-2008, 01:15 PM
The Saber one is really good. The colours go very well and it gives depth. Wish I could do that...

05-22-2008, 12:21 AM
I seriously wonder on how you add the realism factor in your tags. The newest Saber sig especially, looks very clean =DD
I found her eyes kinda dead though... colorize it?

05-22-2008, 05:26 AM
Oyi, Middy very nice sigs you got there man. Heh, I remember you literally said you'd be playing around to make that Saber sig xD

Well I agree with Unli about the eye idea. Maybe had a bit of emphasis on the color here and there. It's hard to say since it came out really well lol. Nice job on it anyway.

05-22-2008, 07:27 AM
wow, you got some nice signatures...simple yet interesting...
i like the deathnote best...

well i haven't seen all, cause i started to look from the last one you posted...

05-27-2008, 03:16 PM
Thankies everyone for teh comments ^_^

I (unfortunately) started playing Diablo 2 again (it eats your soul) So I haven't done anything else since that fateful (cursed) decision.

So I haven't even opened photoshop in about a week.
Luckily...A week ago I made some sweet stuff xD

Sotw Entry: Thanks all who participated:


Sotw Backup entry (lol):


05-28-2008, 12:35 AM
Not to be rude, but it's spelled Balance. XD



You were most definitely a worthy opponent.
Of course you would have.
That tag of Kakashi is AWESOME.
It completely pwns the Naruto tag back up that you had.

GREAT job. Can't wait to match you one day.

05-28-2008, 01:08 AM
I simply love ur blends !
U have got a real talent

05-28-2008, 12:29 PM
Your SOTW stuff is awesome! Can't decide between the two of those. You keep surprising me, bro ^^ You can't improve THAT rapidly!! xD

05-28-2008, 08:46 PM
Balance I'm sorry! Forgive me forgive me!! ^_^

Thanks for the comment Sakura & Rock Lee.

Ivy - You haves a new avatar! And I sure do know how to get lucky~

Huge Poetry project..But I made a sig instead of working on it since I refuse to do such deep work all in one night

It' a request for a new forum user at a forum I go to. I hope he likes it


Serated has new extracts! Weeee!!!

06-01-2008, 08:13 PM
Randomness :p


06-02-2008, 11:55 AM
Ichigo's looking very wicked =], beautiful effects as always. And the colors on your latest one are so screaming, I love them! Image is very nice, very cool :cool:

Yup, I is having a new avi ^^ Like it? Suits me perfectly, lol x)

06-03-2008, 08:58 PM
I love your new avatar Ivy ^_^

Sotw Entry for last week..Yes I know the text is a joke..I didn't really want to put it on..But I had to, lol xD


Recent Tags..kinda trying to find something I like.





06-04-2008, 03:03 AM
Wow! Shakespeare one is awesome! Cool image and great colors, I really like it. Text is very nice too. What I like most at your last SOTW entry is the AG.net text, it's really good! Simple, but the fonts all blend greatly.

06-04-2008, 10:06 AM
Balance I'm sorry! Forgive me forgive me!! ^_^

It's okay, I'm just giving you a hard time. XD


Your SOTW was really good, and I'm a bit surprised that it didn't win but oh well.

The Shakespear is definitely awesome, and I would wear it just because. =3

06-04-2008, 03:17 PM
Shakespear one looks loveleh. How do you pull of that depth? Very nice.^-^

06-05-2008, 11:31 AM
Randomness :p


Awesome colors and C4D placement!And the clips seems really untraceable :D I do not have complaints dear Kami-sama.

(I just noticed why you placed the lighting there, learned something new =D)

The Ichigo one also seems your style ;)clean and B@LLZ of fire xD
Good work Kami-chan.

06-06-2008, 04:57 PM
Kuro - Thanks for the comment! I should be asking you the same question though ^_^

Unli - I like my new nickname, lol. Thanks for the Cnc Onii-Chan.

New Link tag that I absolutely love.


06-06-2008, 05:26 PM
Haven't been here in ages and I have to say that you have gotten more and more experienced Midnight. Good stuff and keep it up.

06-06-2008, 05:47 PM
I really like your Kakashi entry [I voted for it :3]

I also ADORE the 'No fear Shakespear' sig. A.D.O.R.E The composition is simple, and the colors work well together [or should I say lack of color]. The text is also well placed.

And I agree with Unli, the one sig is amazing [I know the name of the anime...its on the tip of my tounge...gah!]
I relly like the vector look it has to it. Awesome work ;3

06-06-2008, 07:52 PM
ZOMG absolutelyfabuloussugoi work there ^.^
And yes you're 'Shakespear' siggy it's all.. IDK can't think of a word.
Anyway yes for your SOTW 'Heroes' entry was pretty good.
[ i voted! xD ] Nice updates keep up the good work! =]

06-08-2008, 12:14 PM
Ka-wa-ii!! Midnight Rider feels like an old hermit with his avy. But once I've glazed upon his works it tells me he's a prince charming. *woohoo*~~

Mira Kaiba
06-08-2008, 07:24 PM
You have some simply incredible sigs! I love the Kakashi and Naruto sigs. The lighting and background are awesome. I also like the Rukia sig - I thought that it turned out very nicely - the lighting and colors were great.

I love your SOTW entries, especially the more vector-looking ones. The Randomness sig you did looks great - I live the vibrant colors!

Tsubaki Yoshikara
06-10-2008, 05:40 AM
I don't know why but I just came across Midnight's thread and I started reading from the 1st page to the last~!
There's something in your siggy that keeps me want to keep on looking at it and just stick on with this thread~KYA!!It's so nice!!!
I can't give you any advice coz I'm not really an expert in photoshop but I just have to say that I love your siggies!
Keep up the good work~!And gratz again for being the SOTW Champion for the 3rd time!

06-11-2008, 11:57 AM
Wow, thanks everyone for the comments.
Much appreciated.

Maru- I think the name of that anime is Burst Angel..Or something like that

Thanks to my mom's evilness I haven't been able to touch a computer for a week..So I'm feeeling teh rust TT_TT

Wonder who this is for (no complaining about the failure of my gifts, they're free after all ^_~)


06-12-2008, 09:33 AM
xD I know exactly how that feels. Mums and computers just don't mix!

Congrats on winning the SOTW, bro ^^ Again! You're tearing up everyone's confidence! XD Just kidding, you deserve it. I like your Rob entry, it's kinda different from most of your other sigs. The colors are just awesome, so bright and clear!

As for Aiglos's gift, it's very cool too. That border seems like it's keeping the content from exploding xD Great job.

06-12-2008, 11:11 PM
Ivy - Thankieees :p
I really loved the Rob sig, along with Link tag..My favorite tags in a long time.
You're right though on that gift tag..the border seems out of place..I forgot that black borders don't work to well on a blue background. :rolleyes:

These are my last tags before I leave for vacation. (See Ivy, I'm giving people's confidence a break :D )

I'm going to miss Anime Forums while I'm gone! <3



I don't really like either of these..makes me sad to leave on a bad note TT_TT

06-12-2008, 11:44 PM
That's awsome, how did you make them?

06-13-2008, 08:29 AM
That's awsome, how did you make them?
He climbed the steps of PHOTOSHOP HEAVEN, and dueled with the gods and became one of the AF Signature Gods, that's how he did it.

Honestly, the Rob Tag was just so perfect, I loved it.
I'm starting to figure out your techniques, and they are somewhat simple, except it's not very easy to do.

The two tags that you are going to leave with us before going to vacation aren't that bad.
The smuding beneath Sora looks pretty good, although awkward since there isn't anything else that has been smudged.

Good Lord MR, can't wait till you come back and make some more tags.

Tsubaki Yoshikara
06-15-2008, 10:48 AM
It's nice to me~Shiny *_* and lightning electrifying effects!
Cant wait to see more of your works after vacation.

06-16-2008, 05:05 AM
GOODNESS!! I need some of those sigs' PSds. Seriously! Everything so flawless!! I wish I could be like that. And those last sigs aren't bad at all. And I agree with balance. Whoa there...

06-16-2008, 07:47 AM
wow! 3 sotw badges! congratulations!

Anyway, I really like the Roy Mustang sig among your latest, the pose you chose and the effects sparking from this fingers. xD But my fave among your works is the winning Kakashi sig. It's really awesome! xD

Keep 'em eye-candy sigs coming! ^^

06-16-2008, 08:35 AM
I like them, they're great! Both images are cool and the colors are, again, screaming and I'm adoring it :] Have a great time, we'll all miss you, bro! ^^

Mira Kaiba
06-16-2008, 02:27 PM
Oh, very nice sigs as always. I really like the Roy Mustang sig - the colors and background lighting are great. I looove your Rob siggy - it's adorable, and I love the vibrant colors - it rules! ^^

06-20-2008, 10:30 AM
Good heavens, what time is it?!?! Unleeh just told me about the gift. Srry Midnight! I should be wearing it by now (..)

Eheh' I'm a big fan of naruto. mmM the flow's good!:)) though I think you could still work on the text.XD anyways, 've got no rights to be ch0osy! Midnight made a gift and I shall wear it proud.:ninja:

06-20-2008, 01:20 PM
[belated]Congrats on ROB! It's so vibrant and pretteh..
And I'm loving your Roy Mustang ATM.
It's all kinda 'IN YOUR FACE' with the shingy looking beam
and awesome purple-magentas and orangey-yellows ?? o.o
Very fantabulous work MR!

06-27-2008, 01:50 PM
Finally BACK from "Vacation"
Thanks for the comments while I was gone. <3



Mira Kaiba
06-27-2008, 01:55 PM
Ooh, awesome sig. I love the warm coloring. Some of the red splatter seems too sharp for the rest of the smudging. The borders look great - I like the two different colors.

Nice sig, and welcome back from vacation! ^^

06-27-2008, 02:01 PM
Good to have you back, bro ^^ That sig is so cool xD Happy colors vs. tough soldier guy. Can't miss with that! x) Really, it's great. Definitely something only you can pull off.

Oh yeah, just remembered this. Thought about making a fan button? =3 I'd love to have yours, plus I'm pretty sure many people would wear it too. Think about it, okay? ;]

06-27-2008, 03:04 PM
You've got to give that to me later!

Alrighty, now your smudging techniques are ALWAYS awesome to see...however...
The background doesn't really seem to fit with the subject as he's not the bright kind of person...
Also, we KNOW it's supposed to say Legend behind Snake, but still...
The texture and look of the signature is AWESOME, but the color scenario doesn't fit in my opinion. =\

06-27-2008, 03:40 PM
Yeah, Snake is the new pink and creamy colors ;D Yup, that's bloodthirsty Snake for ya!

Love those C4D light streaks there. Gives that motion and liquidy feel to it.
Looks a bit dirtier than your usual style though. Especially on the left side there =/

07-04-2008, 12:22 PM
undermining everyone's confidence?!??(ftw) .ROFL.

You could always join other SOTW competitions you know? On other gfx sites.,. that is.
-:ninja: -

nice depth and flow, colors are good, backgrounds well-blended. I could not think of anything to give a cnC on,,!" Probably with the text?hmm

~Ah! avatar's a bit too old., dress-it uP!

07-06-2008, 03:24 PM
Pink Creamy Snake FTW!!

Mujika you are right - I desperately need a new Avatar, but I'm too stubborn to make one

Been away from photoshop awhile and darn it shows


07-06-2008, 10:53 PM
Do you take requests, Midnight?

That'd be awesome if you did. :)

07-07-2008, 01:29 AM
It doesn't show all that much :3

I really like how it is simple but it works really well. I love the light effect you have going around the extraction/character, it brights up the signature and makes him a focal point. Great job ^_^ I love your signatures.

07-07-2008, 02:11 AM
Nice work. =D I think all you need for the Zaraki Kenpachi one is a border and it'll look great. (^__^)

07-07-2008, 10:13 PM
Do you take requests, Midnight?

That'd be awesome if you did. :)

I do try to take requests..Although I"m pretty rusty right now. If you have a set request I can at least give it a try

dotmyztick - Lol..And I love your signatures :p

Lollipopz - Ty for the comment and feedback!

An attempted Gift to my sprite inspiration, the one and only, Unli.



07-07-2008, 10:34 PM
Oh me geee. I just made a sprite signature but I think it fails compared to yours. *o* -envies- I lurve the colours you have used, did you use the pen tool to make it or was it a C4D or other? It is the sex. I think I like the top one better though, the white is a bit too blinding and the top one is more calm. Grrr so good. Hope to see more soon Midnight ^^

07-08-2008, 01:53 AM

Sexy warm colors yo :3

07-08-2008, 10:07 AM
Awesome! Unleh's gift is really cool, and it suits him greatly. Great work, bro ^^

07-10-2008, 01:08 PM
Hope you're enjoying your gift Unli
Because I made you another one, lol. ^_^

Lol, This was actually your original gift idea - But it came out really bad, so I made you the sprite. Now I've reworked it a bit and it's not horrible anymore xD


Also was working on this tag..Can't get any text to work with it though


07-10-2008, 01:59 PM

The flow is eeeeexcellent.
Very, very nice. Whoo Unli!


As Unli has told me sometimes, some tags work better without text. To me, in my opinion though...
The background doesn't seem to fit in with Miku...
It's an amazing concept, but it's just not...there...

Also Unli's original gift...
The color scheme is kind of odd and it the smudging on the sides doesn't seem to fit in my opinion.
Everything else though is GREAT. Can't wait to see more. :3

07-10-2008, 02:13 PM

This is very cool! ok, it's warm actually. If you'd just used some more of that smudge thing and get rid of that liquified bg it should work. The bg will do nicely if it's plain; doesn't need to have effects. That's a really nice extract too!!

Also was working on this tag..Can't get any text to work with it though

I know I'm terrible in text work, but try putting the text in the area above her right hand. Or maybe you could try Dot's style in that oh me geee sig that won SOTW #9. She put the text behind the extract.

Mira Kaiba
07-10-2008, 02:22 PM
Awesome - fantastic sigs! I love the Sprite sigs - the second one has nice lighting in the center. The effects are great. I also love the Kenpachi sig - the smudging and lighting are perfect with the extract.

I also like the blue sig, and I agree - some tags should not have text. If it doesn't fit, then don't add it. I think it looks fantastic. ^^

07-12-2008, 10:26 PM
Karuto - I liquify all my backgrounds now since they suck if I don't ^_^
And actually, it's not based on an extract, but a stock. I can't extract to save my life.

Mira - Thankies for stopping by and commenting <3

Balance (Spelled it right!) - Yeah I a gree..It didn't really seem to work out on the Vocaloid sig. I really liked the colors..So it kind of makes me mad. Maybe I'll play with it some mre

Speaking of Random liquefy 0_0

Someone's been busy lately ^^ More great work from you, as always! Your latest FMA sig is awesome, I like the 1st one better. Awesome colors and of course, teh liquid xD Lelouch one is, hmm, honestly not that good. I don't like the side background, it looks like he's drowning in some mud, lol. Some other color would probably work good. Miku is very cute and the colors are lovely, beautiful blues. Me likes :]

Have I told you I really love the way you smudge and liquify? Well, I do.

Commenting on the FMA one.
I like the second version better mainly because I prefer richer and darker colors. That "O" is nice and bright but it's a tad blinding but the rest of the effects near Edward's hands are very interesting and I really like them. :3

WOAH 1500th post

You are liquidying god. No that didn't make sense.. but i don't caare it's late and my eyeballs hurt. e__e;

Okies, Gneee midnight your one of my favourite signature/GFX designers. In my opinion your second version of the FMA sig looks better. The colours aren't too bright on Edward (that is his name right?!) and it blends the signature better. I like what you have done with the background, thats one of the things I struggle with. I like how you have liquidfied it (yes?) so it flows up and away from him - fits perfectly with the extraction/render. Nice connection with the thick text and border aswell.

Another win! -grins-


07-13-2008, 08:43 AM
FMA!!! Ed looks SO cute there...

The darker one is definately better. But it needs more lighting in a few spots. Also, try to smudge the edges a little and use one or two circle clipping masks. That will probably give a bit more depth to it ^^

OMG! Memories! I made my very first c4d sig using a picture of Ed that looked a lot like this one xD

Its a really cool sig you have! The c4d use it truly amazing and they background it so deep. The text also just fades into the sig and I really like that. I kinda feel like the white border it too thick though and it seems to take away from the effect of the sig, but everything else is amazing. The lighting effects work well and this sig just works!

07-14-2008, 02:44 PM
Heyy, that FMA tag does seem kinda cool! Especially the hollow circle thing, it always catches my attention >D Sharpness is a bit too powerful at the face area, but the hands area are in perfect harmony. I gotta love your smudging techniques! Keep at it Midnight =D!

07-15-2008, 09:04 PM
Wow, you've gotten so good at this over the past few months. It's a completely different approach to your old work, I really like it. <3

Sadly, I've been so busy I haven't done much to brush up my skills. I really need to learn how to do such amazing tags. Haha..

Keep it up man, you're awesome.

07-27-2008, 01:34 AM
Ok is there a room still left for me to put up my surveillance cam? Eheh.;p luv the works! In one of your current tags I get to see that render everywhere now.xD IMO it's being overused. *gulp* It doesnt matter anyway. If I'm a fan.. I'm a fan! < 3

07-31-2008, 10:25 PM
Thankies Yurka! I appreciate your input (Especially since it's nice ^_~)

Diinni it's never to late to board the Midnight train!! ^_^

Been really busy with Summer work (ew) and working at the Library (ew as well) so I haven't had much time for Photoshop..But here are a few recent things.

07-31-2008, 10:39 PM
You must show me how you smudge. Lol anyway nice smudging, and colors are good too, nice depth in the halo one.

07-31-2008, 11:03 PM

goddammit, those sigs are so freaking sexy! Especially the Ookami signature! I love those light streaks there and the color choice is superb~

Awesomely well done!

07-31-2008, 11:39 PM
I love the effects in the 1st sig, but I think the border should be yellow. Oh well. ^^

08-01-2008, 05:40 AM
I like the Sasuke one a lot. Nice blues and the image is cool, but maybe, just maybe it's a bit too blank...? No words for your smudging, I hate to repeat myself. ;P And that wolf is just... AW! Awesome! So warm and dynamic, and the border on the side is a nice touch. Overall a very nice update.

As for the work, hang on! It'll pay off in the end [literally]. Hah. :]

P.S. Just remembered, when will you treat your loyal fans with a fan button to wear??? Middy, Middy *shakes head*

Mira Kaiba
08-01-2008, 01:56 PM
Hehe, the Sasuke sig is smexiness! ^^
I like the darker colors, and the smudging/liquify is awesome.

The ookami sig is perfect - I love the colors and lighting. You are the liquify master!

08-05-2008, 05:58 AM
haha i love em all!!!! they are really gd!!! love the first ans third one!!!!!!!! U are really gd with composition!! keep it up!

08-05-2008, 10:38 PM
I really love your sigs^^
i'm starting to work on making sigs^^
i hope i become as good as you^^

08-15-2008, 01:08 PM
Thanks for all the comments..I know I've said it before, but there's not much more to say since I appreciate them :D

PoisonIvy - Avatar, which is loooong overdue and a Fan button of sorts are on the "To-Do" list. Which keeps getting lost :p

Gift :eek:
What you say? (We get signal?)

Been awhile since I did a spite



08-15-2008, 01:42 PM
*shakes head* I'm expecting a Fan button to wear soon, I need a new accessory. xD

Anyway, me's liking these purple-ish gifts, they're very nice. Awesome smudging and great colors. Nothing less from you! ^^
[talk about repeating yourself o.O]

08-15-2008, 04:38 PM
Your style is very repetitive. Its not a bad style, but you really use it a lot. Try something other than smudging and the Topaz.

08-15-2008, 08:56 PM
I don't see how his style is repetitive. Sure he smudges but, it looks different each time.

Anyway, keep it up! Those tags are really great. Your smudging rocks.

08-16-2008, 12:20 PM

Oh noes! You've seen right though me! :p
Except my Topaz trial ran out ages ago, so I've had to improvise.
I don't know, lately I've been kind of against using c4d's. Most of my more recent tags don't use them at all.
Not that there aren't other styles, I'm just not the creative type :closedeye
It's my ultimate downfall
My creativity level = 0.
Music, art, not my thing. But I try :D

Rocket - Glad you like em! By the way, I admire Gimp users (hint hint)

Long over due gift here to meh loving sister <3
It's not a fan button, I know, but it could be just as good?



08-16-2008, 01:06 PM
Hmm, well repetitive style or not, I like it! :3
I like the colours in the last one, and the flow and those rainbow looking things. The top left splatters could've been more closer to the middle imo.

The light looks good, but I prefer the second one because it's less bright.

Background may be a bit empty, but I like it the way it is because of its simplicity. ^-^

08-16-2008, 01:31 PM
You have a wonderful style with siggies, simply amazing. Keep up the great work! :3


08-17-2008, 10:49 AM
Guys, do you really know what your talking about? :\ This is not a sig class to give opinions as such whether he executes the same style or not(!) I bet if it's smudging you wont be able to obtain those settings that easy and I'm guessing there's a liquify filter involved(^^, He has a good eye for detail and flow. Your smudging is kinda different it blends so well.

~Gaah! it's not my business anyway.0. but still REMOVED Sig class!

08-18-2008, 11:07 AM
Thanks for the feedback Lovebeat and Dark Magic

Djinni to the rescue! - I appreciate you coming to my defense ^_^

Meh gifts have gone unnoticed TT_TT
I should pm them I guess

Hey you, plox love
(no smudging)

08-18-2008, 02:24 PM
Wow, I love the Naruto sig. The green works surprisingly well with the overall sig, and I like the blended text in the background.

I also like the sprite sig - the first version seems to have more eye catching colors, imo. Very nice smudge and liquify!

08-18-2008, 04:54 PM
Wow it was you, never woulda guessed lol.

Anyway the non-smudge sig is very good. Nice colors. Good effects. I'm liking the extraction/stock placement.

08-19-2008, 09:06 PM
So continues the no smudging ;)
More naturo for a friend.




I have like 800 different version since I couldn't settle on what looked good.

08-19-2008, 09:13 PM

I have like 800 different version since I couldn't settle on what looked good.

Like this one, to my untrained eye I can't tell much of diff. other than the border and slightly darker tones o_O;

Anyway I like that best o_O haha yeah *pointless feedback o_O*

08-19-2008, 09:40 PM


Wow, sorry Midnight didn't see these~~ Thank you
I love your smudging skills, they are so damn good *i want*

I love the use of colours in this one, and I think the second one is more better with a cool effect. The text though, I dont think it work really well D: but nonetheless it is an awesome signature.

08-20-2008, 07:33 AM

I'm so SORRY for not checking your thread earlier, but I haven't been around much these past few days. I love it, it's so cool! *wears it* Now I'm a proud representative of your awesomeness. ^^ Thanks a lot, dear bro!

08-21-2008, 12:39 AM
Jose - The difference is the tones ^_^
And I have quite a few flipped versions as well. The simpler the tag, the more versions there always seems to be

dotmyztick - Text never was my strong point, and I'll lose smudging at the rate I'm going, doing all these no smudge tags xD
*However awesome a tag I make, I don't think it will ever compare to your current.

PoisonIvy - I'm awfully glad you like it <3 <3

New Stuff.

Chaotic...Don't really like it


Digging this tag though.
Never done pure typo before.


08-21-2008, 01:22 AM
Coolness! I like how you used the splatter brushes as a makeshift flow ^_^
Nice colors too.

Nice text :b

08-21-2008, 05:21 AM
How did you do those light sparks on the "chaotic sig" xDD ?? I really want to know, pm me!

And I actually really like it, even if it is a bit messy, it just looks so awesome.
Those light things! argh! lol xD
Loving the text signature and the splatter brush effects. Nice use of colours, and your text totally kicks the butt of my signature's text. XD

08-22-2008, 10:59 AM
Unli, was it you or Trey who first came up with Middy??
Well whatever, I <3 both of you ^_^

dotmyztick - I'll just send you the psd - I probably would have deleted it if you hadn't asked xD

Can't make anything good right now -_-


08-22-2008, 11:20 AM

I like this one a lot! Colors are awesome and that contrast is great. Powerful sig. :]

08-23-2008, 10:55 PM
Don't these threads get closed after a certain length??
I've got to be getting close ^_^

Gift for SSD, if she ever looks here, Mwhahah!!

Darn you're a fast learner :p
Making great sigs and vectors already

School sucks..So I"ll be busy for the next...many months
Might squeeze in a tag here or there



08-30-2008, 01:37 PM

Well, why don't you just give me a buffet full of heaven?
These are EXCELLENT.
The second signatures seems really clustered...
But I really like the depth of it at the same time.
And the first signature has an odd sky blue in there that kind of seems random.

Something I still have yet to learn how to do from you.
Keep them coming, no matter how large the gaps are.

08-30-2008, 04:21 PM
That blue sig is amazing :)
Even though it has a lot in it you've still managed to make the character the main focus :) Simply marvelous!

08-30-2008, 05:22 PM
Awesome update! I like the blue sig better, lovely color combo and the depth is... alive! xD Honestly, seems like I could put my finger through the screen in it. Great work. First sig is pretty bright, but still very good. I agree with Balance, that piece of sky doesn't really fit. But it's not that important, overall the sig is very good. Nice flow.

Good luck with school, bro! GFX and us, your loyal groupies won't run anywhere! ;D

The first one is sexy to a degree I can't handle it, the second one made me do suicide XDD
Loving both really :3

I like the second one though, so...
I like how you did the background xD it's really new to me :3 Flower petals and text all around! Very creative and new

Looking forward to your works again ^_^ and make a tut on the second one >:3

08-30-2008, 11:14 PM
make a tut on the second one >:3

I wholeheartedly AGREE. The second one is absolutely the smex. Loving the bg and the overall theme. =D

09-01-2008, 08:28 PM
Alrighty then, I'll try to get some sort of thing going on that second tag ^_^
Might label the psd for next week's pack.

I'll be busy hitting the books though.
But Kakashi reads too!!!!


Do the effects ruin it??

09-02-2008, 11:19 AM
The 4th from the 1st post is amazing, looks like that great hero that will save the world from devastation (cool story for an anime huh). And the 2nd from the 2nd post is so calm and peaceful!!! Would you make a sig like that for me??

Mira Kaiba
09-02-2008, 09:05 PM
Yummy sigs - I am adoring the Kakashi sig - he looks so smexy when he reads, and you just made him look 100x better! Really, I love the effects - they don't ruin it at all. I like the second version you're using better though - better color and focus.


Loving this one - the vivid colors of the sky really make the darker guy pop out. The effects are awesome.

If you ever find some relief from the dreaded school, you should make a tut or two. *pretty please?* ^^

Not at all! Really very nice!! Even reading a book has awesome action of flow >XD Very nice colors btw, Orange and shades o blue really works quite well. and the background looks sexy! Photograph or a Screen shot?
The one you're wearing with the warmed microwave filter looks even better :3

09-05-2008, 09:25 AM

It's so niceand flowy!! I can't even describe it. It's too well done ^^

And I agree with Kurotan and Unli. Make a tutorial for the blue sig...

09-08-2008, 02:08 PM
Closed for length. Feel free to open a new one. ^_^
