Awesome sig! ^-^

Well done! And yes as yilin said

It looks really cute, especially the first one that u made.
Always try your best! ^-^

They're not very good at all. The render you used on your banners it looks like it's decaying. The colours are a bad choice and it's not well done. Use the LassoTool on Photoshop to outline the render or whatever and erase some of the parts out. While you're at it, have some texture on the banner you're working on and get good brushes.

Don't make it look horrible. 4/10

03-29-2008, 11:11 AM
Nariko's right. The extracts are not clean. Work on those a little more and the color compositions. If you want a quote for the orange one, you could put in something like :" sharing the warmth". I'm not good at qoutes either...

Goodylucky
03-29-2008, 10:42 PM
oh.. it's that bad..? I wish I could do what you said but I can't cuz I don't use photoshop.. I use Paint.NET...
here is another one I've done.. is it better...? please comment..!

I think you can still make these 2 live again.
The first one's main problem is the colors, too monotone, try experimenting with different colors. And the extract is a bit, uh, low quality. Don't use a magic wand for extracting, they tend to select things you don't want. You can get some of Serated's if you want, they're cleanly extracted ;DD Overall, the placement is quite good. Though, play around with different fonts.

The PitaTen signature.
Uh, this one has no color problems, so its highly possible that you can fix this.
The blurry look is a bit random ^^; Try darkening a bit of the background. And the flow is... off. The flow in the background is moving past the extract. You want the background to emphasize the extract a bit. and if its not enough, do some foreground if you like =P Placement of the extract, not so hot. I'd say move it up a bit. And get rid of the Pita Ten at the top left, its a bit random as well >.>;;

thanks for the comment!! I'll try to do what you said.. ^^
if I don't use the magic wand, what else can I use..?
oh, btw, does that mean Serated use PDN...?

and uh.. this is a new sig I've made... is it that bad too?? and uh, just to make this clear, I like to make it easy, not really hard, cuz it just doesn't work for me to use like 20 layers at a time T_T

04-07-2008, 12:09 AM
Hmm...all you need now is focus on the background. The borders are nice, but try not to have a large border, since it will stand out. Also, if you can blend in the render with the background, it will be really effective ^^ Otherwise, keep on improving.

yilin
04-07-2008, 01:37 AM
sure I like you're siggies, lil sis... thanks for the siggy!!^^

Goodylucky
04-07-2008, 06:14 PM
to: Midnight-chan ~thanks for the comment! I just made another sig and avy, and I made it before reading your comment so my border is still kinda big -_- but I'll try to make it small next time ^^
to: yilin-chan ~glad you like it! I like the sig you made for me too!

a sig for lucky_angel-chan:

http://www.animeforum.com/image/12887647f927b4579cb.jpg

an avy for lucky_angel-chan too! (I won't call this a set cuz well, it doesn't really match..) I think the colour for the font doesn't match, but I'm too lazy to change it lol sorry about that.. heheh...

http://www.animeforum.com/image/12887647f975bb0a8e2.jpg

I hope she likes them! so.. any comments?

Hi Goody-chan!
I really like the sig/avy you made me! it's really cute!
I'm not a sig maker, so I'm not sure how to comment and stuff... but yeah, as you said, I don't think the colour for the avy font match.. but I like it anyway! I wanna see more!!!

Goodylucky
04-08-2008, 01:23 AM

here is another sig I made with smaller borders ^_^;;

wow, that sig is so cute!
cuter than the one you made me *jealous* lol jk xD
but, I think the stripes are kinda random though ^_^;; just my opinion, maybe other people like the stripes..
make me another sig! keep it up!

LittleMomo
04-08-2008, 08:33 PM
All right! Your backgrounds are improving! I really hope you keep on improving, so keep up the good work Goodylucky!

Hautalken
04-09-2008, 07:24 AM
The pink one is probably your best one so far! It's beautiful. You're improving quickly. (Just like me ^_^ i started this siggy business just last month!)

The effects used are pretty simple yet filling. Nice work ^_^

Goodylucky
04-09-2008, 08:31 PM

Last month...? really? wow, you are improving so much, then!!
I'm glad you like the sig, I like it too ^_^
here is another one I made.. am I getting worser or better? ^_^;;

http://www.animeforum.com/image/12887647fb0e9786e88.jpg

C&C plz?

Serated
04-09-2008, 10:55 PM
Alright, heres some advice for your usage. First, try not to throw text all around the signature, try to keep nice and neat in one area (eg. Karuto's Saber signature above your post). Second, try using more than one color to not make the signature look monotone. As far as everything else goes, work on those two things and keep everything else. You are sure to get better if you try and work with what others give you.

Goodylucky
04-11-2008, 06:06 PM
thanks for the advice, Serated-chan!
ok.. these sigs below are all for Karami-chan...
for this sig, I don't know what else to put.. so it's still kinda monotone... any suggestions?

http://www.animeforum.com/image/12887647feebc3390c0.jpg

for this sig, it creeps me out lol

http://www.animeforum.com/image/12887647fec371d4a7b.jpg

I think you have really improved from starting small. I really cannot offer any more advice than that. I think your signatures are adorable. For being so young, I am sure in time your work will really grow with you as well. Kudos and great job. :)

Goodylucky

is that what you wanted Midnight-chan?

LittleMomo
04-13-2008, 12:39 AM
The things I dun want only in that sig is the whole grainy thingy. Other wise it looks fine without it.

Goodylucky
04-13-2008, 09:28 PM
ok, I erased the grainy part... is it better?

I didn't follow this thread from the start but you are getting better at a rapid rate. I think this signature is the standout so far. It's brighter than the others and the extraction is brought to the front with the contrasting white around it.:chill:

thank you everyone for the comments!
I just downloaded GIMP, and this is the first sig I made with it lol, (the extractions weren't done by me, it was already there when I found the image...)

Serated
04-21-2008, 10:44 PM
The render on the first looks really choppy or just really low quality. On the second one, the text really needs to be moved off of the render and you should try resizing it into your signature better. But overall, both signatures need some flow to improve them and make them appeal to your own style.

Goodylucky
04-26-2008, 07:49 PM
I don't even know how to use GIMP properly yet, plus, I can't use it anymore cuz I returned back the comp that I downloaded GIMP in, so I'm still using PDN now ;_;

new sig for Queen of sweets, hope she likes it!!

That is a bettererererererer sig.

The text is oodles better and I liked the glowing dots. But [there's always a but =p] I think you should make the extract more up front.

Goodylucky
04-27-2008, 03:13 PM
thanks for the rep and advice!! (I want to rep back but I've given too much reps in 24 hours ;_;

here is a siggy that I made for KP4, I didn't work on it that much though...

well your recent work bright bt still good! you're improving!
check out my thread every once in awhile you can't just forget about me y'know!
Well keep up the work!d^_^b

04-29-2008, 09:25 PM
Not bad Goodylucky, your recent sigs are your best so far. IMO, i think you are still in your beginning stages and you are getting better and better. GIMP is pretty confusing at first but use that experience from it and move to PS when you can.

As for your sigs, you have to work on developing depth, light source, and bringing out your extractions in your work. I like to compare depth to a sunset over an ocean. The ocean is your foreground since it is closest to you, the sun is the midground as it feels slapped between the ocean and sky, which is the background. Use lighting, blurring, sharpening, and other techniques to define your work and you'll see huge improvements in composition and what not.

Goodylucky
05-03-2008, 03:36 PM
sorry, long time no update...

to Serated: sorry about that, but isn't Chan for both girls and boys?

to MS: I still use Paint.NET, I don't have GIMP anymore ;_;

to TreyX: what you said to me is using GIMP right..? but I use Paint.NET...
and can you give me some advice for Paint.NET?

new siggy for Mini! hope she likes it ^^

It's a bit bright, lower the brightness a little.

Dark Wolf 09
05-03-2008, 03:55 PM
Whoa, the effects are way too bright. Try lowering the filtered contrast a bit. That'll make it "eye-catchy", overall. All signatures are good. Keep up the work.

Goodylucky
05-03-2008, 06:05 PM
I guess I like bright better than dark lol

anyway, this new siggy I just made for romy808 isn't that bright.. or is it?

05-17-2008, 01:44 PM
Comment on latest work:

Erm, nice stock. Burt, i dont like the border, if you want a border, make it completely white or whatever colour you want. The style of your border in thie Sasuke one, well, i just dont like it. Change the pharses as well, they suit the sig, but it's just not right, probably it's because the font you're using.Try out different ones until you think it suits the sig, i think that's what Nariko suggested about my siggys.

Overall, it looks okay, keep it up =3.


You might like to try GIMP

Cotaku
05-17-2008, 04:49 PM
Yay! I thought I was going to be the only one who uses PDN here! I like your signatures. Some of them are a bit too bright for my tastes, though. But I just like darker things. Keep up the good work! ^^

Goodylucky
05-17-2008, 05:56 PM
you use PDN? really? wow, I thought i was the only one too!
yeah, I guess I like bright stuff lol

anyway, since the Magic Wand sucks, I'm gonna use Serated's extraction forever lol, this extraction is by her:

I like this one! The left side of her hair has a little tiny bit fof a rough edge, but I really didn't notice it until I got close to the screen. And I think that your name could be a little brighter color. It's kinda hard to read. For me, at least. Maybe I'm just blind. lol!

I don't wanna show off my name cuz the font I use is always the same ;_; it's kinda weird lol, if I have more fonts, maybe I would make my name a darker colour ^_^;;

anyway, new siggy, I used GIMP for this one, i didn't much effects on it though... it's kinda weird heheh... I didn't write my name either cuz I don't think it matches with the siggy... I was about to write "Friendship never ends" but nah, like I said, it won't match... plz comment!

Okies! I don't know how GIMP works. Is it similar to PDN? As for your font...you could get some more choices of fonts from dafont.com.
I think that the "Friendship never ends" quote would work well with that one and I love teh sepia look! ^^
I love the background for the second one. The glowing is a great effect!
Keep up the good work, and I can't wait until you come back!!
