Well, I decided to take a crack at uploading. I make simple signatures, and I'm a novice, so please don't be TOO hard on me. Oh, and I don't use photoshop. *sob* I use Paint.NET.

http://i267.photobucket.com/albums/ii295/snow_ichigo/DemoniSIG_01.png

Here's the first one I am uploading here. I couldn't really think of any good text. Give the credit to Serated for the extraction.
C&C, please?

i actually think you that what you did was great...

you blended the color well and mixed the image with it's background quite well too...

try doing something much more complicated, 'coz i think that could help you be better...

(im just trying to be a good critique...)

you have a jagged pixel edge, I would make a new file, and drive the resolution up, and try to smooth the edge with a soft tip eraser. other than that coolie o.

Thank you for the comments! Much appreciated. The reason I don't do complicated sigs is because, well, I really don't know how to. I'm sure that PDN doesn't have as many qualities as photoshop and that might be one of the reasons, but I really can't blame the programs I use for this kind of thing. Do you think you could give me a suggestion of how to make it more complicated?

*looks closer* Oh! I see it! I should've inspected that after I inserted the outline. I was careless and thought that the image would be fine with whatever I do to it since it's a very clean extraction. [Go Serated! w00t!]
Now, I'm not trying to make an excuse here, but in PDN I don't think there's such thing as a soft tip eraser...just...an eraser. But I can look at the forums to see if there is something. Thank you for the C&C! ^-^

and yeah as demonplight said there
are some jagged edges there ^-^
I hope to see it fixed soon >o<
And I'd like to see more from you!
Wel done!!~~

Pdn?

PDN is the program I use. It's short for Paint.NET.
Anyway...I wasn't sure how to fix the sig because I'm Demoni, SUPER N00B! So I made a new one out of boredom.

http://i267.photobucket.com/albums/ii295/snow_ichigo/DemoniSIG_02.png

...Now that I look at it, it seems like they've been caught by the cops, doesn't it?
"Oh, crap! Grab the stuff and run!"
Yeah...that is SO Totoro.

http://i267.photobucket.com/albums/ii295/snow_ichigo/DemoniSIG_03.png

I get bored...So I made this one and attempted to do something with the opacity. It wasn't as worrying as I thought it would be. I'm a worry wort and I have anxiety probs, but that's a different story...I think it turned out good.

I decided to take a venture and create a new set for myself!

http://i267.photobucket.com/albums/ii295/snow_ichigo/DemoniSIG_04.png

I really liked how these turned out! There are a few pixely and rough edges, though, aren't there? I don't really know how to fix it except for using the feather plugin, but if I use it too much the image starts to disappear at the edges. Like it did in the avatar, but I liked that effect there.
The image I used is the main character of Shugo Chara, Hinamori Amu.
[I just started watching it today and wanted to make a sig with her in it! ♥]

Pretty good considering the program you are using. I'm curious to see what else you can get out of it. Keep on going!

I like them. I haven't used PDN, so I'm not really sure how it works, nor do I know how difficult it is to use, but the only thing I have to say negatively about them it that some of them are a bit boring. Other than that, they are really good, especially for being a novice!

But you need to work on your image/render quality though..

Well in PDN you only really have one [boring] brush unless you use the custum brush plugin, but I don't know how to use that, so that's one setback of the program. But I'm sure I wouldn't even be using all of the different brushes if I could.




Nice new work Demoni!

I know. lol
All I really can think of doing right now is taking a pic from online and using the magic wand function. n_ń;;

Really? I have now found two people, other than myself, on this forum that uses PDN! Yay! Actually...I don't really plan it...I just press buttons and hope for the best. lol! That means that all of my good sigs are usually flukes. Don't get me wrong...it's not like I have absolutely no idea about the plugins I DL, I do know what they do and what the image would look after it's done, but I don't really have a plan for anything. It's like an adventure, sig making!

Yeah...I know I can. But I don't want to get mixed up in the whole giving credits thing, because I know that if I use extractions, I'll forget to give credit to who I got it from, so I'm going to keep practicing on the magic wand. Hehe...
I'll try more effects then...RIGHT NOW! *poof*

Behold! It is the offspring of ultimate boredom! :D
I have no idea who the character is, but I have a feeling that she's from a video game for some reason. If anybody could tell me anything, I'd appreciate it!
I know she's a bit pixelly and stuff, but I'm still practicing with the feather plugin and magic wand. *shrug*

sorry i don't know which anime it's from.. I know soo less animes lol

sometimes I forget about the credits too! but once I remembered I just hurried and edit my post lol

now, for your last sig, ok, I'll just stop talking about the bad extraction stuff, get on with the real part lol, if the extraction look nice (in my imagination) I think that the big/black dots (not the small one) is a little.. uh random? o.O;; everything else look fine to me ^^

ooh, you use plug-ins? I know where to put/download them but I don't know how to use it o.O;; like what do you do to open/use it?

Scion
05-19-2008, 10:11 PM
Well if you want to learn how to extract images, you should try using either the pen tool, polygonal lasso tool, layer masks, and the good ol' eraser tool. There are several tutorials on other sites if you are willing to search around a bit that would provide a lot of detail on to use these and other tools to get clean extractions.

And just an everyday tip; make a black background under the layer of your extraction. Zoom in and out while working on the edges to get a good view of the canvas and the area of focus.

Oh! Thanks! I'l start looking for a PDN tut. And thank you so much for the tips. It would be so convenient for a zoom window to be in PDN. lol

I made a gift for IchigoKiss as a thank you for her sig to me! I know...It's not very good and teh extraction is rough and stuff. *pouts in her corner* lol jk jk

I have an image with this girl (the same look, and even the samething it's doing) but the colour isn't like that, what did you do? or is the pic already like that?
anway, in my opinion, the yellow at the top right corner shouldn't be here... I don't get why there is yellow in it lol
and try to add more effects too! It helps a lot...!


http://i267.photobucket.com/albums/ii295/snow_ichigo/DemoniSIG_07.png


what did you do with this pic now? I don't think it's like this before right?
I really like the background, it fits the theme ^^
keep it up!

Cotaku
05-22-2008, 12:56 PM
@Goodylucky-

The bunny sig:
I did a bit of color sharpening and brought out the blue in her with PDN's color mixer function. You really don't like the yellow? I was messing around with a new plugin [I forget what it is] and the yellow looked pretty good to me. *shrug*

The Music sig:
No. It was not like that before I edited it. It was more gray, but I felt colorful. lol. So I messed with the color mixer again and found that I turned it into a cotton candy color which I found extremely pleasant. :]
Then I used the Ink Sketch plug in and I LOVE the way that it looked when it came out. I thought the bars would be fitting for a music theme. lol.

Thank you for your comments! Much appreciated! ♥

That's my SOTW entry from week #3. Also, it was my first entry in that contest ever. lol
I knew I wouldn't win, but poison.ivy told me to give it a go, so I went for it. And when I hear the word "hero" I automatically think Legend of Zelda. LOL
I was debating over Toon Link, Young Link, or...Link. In the end I chose Link because he seemed the most hero-ish. Even if I'm better with Toon Link on SSBB. LOL
Anyway...At first I wanted to make just his eyes blue and the rest black and white, then I realized that I stole that from Balance's sig. Oopsies. So I did the whole thing over and came up with this. I really like the outcome even if it is really simple.
Watch out for more Demoni Signess in upcoming SOTW contests!
As for now...
C&C on this sig, please?

IchigoKiss
06-02-2008, 05:34 PM

of your upcoming SOTW entries ;]

The b/g is unsuitable it needs GREEN and lighter shades of GREEN too.
Maybe some grass and loverrly textures would make it all
' EWMAHGEWD [comment] ' and take of the white film strip.

I decided that it is time for a new set! Yay! I feel in an angely mood so I chose angels for the theme. I'm not so sure if the text is fitting or not. It sounded good when I started. LOL
Thank you to everyone who commented on my Hinamori Amu sig...but it's time to say goodbye to it.

Balance
06-03-2008, 09:51 AM
Well, Demoni, the new set is very pleasing to the eye I will tell you that.

What you could have worked on was the background though, and try to add a bit more flow. The extract itself seems very...dull in that background. If you just tried to blend the extract itself, I believe it would have looked a LOT better, however it does look nice anyway.

The text could also be a little closer in my opinion.

Overall, I think it's a good set overall.

IchigoKiss
06-03-2008, 05:16 PM
Yes I have to agree with Serated on that one;
I indeed also should say that blend the extract aswell...
Anyways.. the tenshi(angel) has white kinda jagged(??) edges.
Try have an outer glow on it so it's more flow-ish or even
just add some loverly feather brushes ^.^

poison.ivy
06-10-2008, 05:06 AM
I really like your new set, as you already know ^^ Colors are very nice and calming and the image is cute. But I've to agree with Balance; the image and the background aren't blending that well. That's actually the biggest, ummm, could I call that a "mistake"?, in your sigs. Stick those together and it'll be awesome. There are many great great gfx artists on AF so this is teh best place to learn ;] Can't wait to see more! ^^

poison.ivy
06-10-2008, 04:31 PM
Ichigo's right. Blending... as in to look like they're in one layer, cuz it's pretty see-able that the image is added to the BG. It looks like an angel in a sky, you got that great, just try to blend them better. That's the weakness I've noticed in PDN -.- Practice is everything, dear sis, so don't worry ^^

Cotaku
06-12-2008, 01:51 PM

I really want some gummy bears right now. And my craving has drawn me to create a gummy bear theme sig & avy. Lol
I thought the idea was kinda cute. And yes, I know the gummy bears are pixelly. Sorry about that. I think I'll start using this set.
Is the blending stuff better here? Because I'm still a bit confused as to how it is supposed to look.
C&C?

Tsubaki Yoshikara
06-12-2008, 02:33 PM
Maybe that we could put it in a way that the image is too outstanding?As in yea...see-able,sorta like popping out from the background.
Take a look at the one Serated made for Ivy,I know it's really well blended because i have the original image of it.It blends into the b/g,like er...as if it was originally there..(can i put it this way?)

Probably the jagged edges,actually not only edges,I can actually spot a slight white border around her images,maybe that's what that affected the blending?

Sorry...back to your sig n avi,
I'm not that expert to really know all abt photoshop and PDN and things..slight comments will do

If I'm not wrong,were you trying to make it seem like the gummy bears are raining from the sky?Cause' I think I see the gummy bears glowing...The shine-through parts are a bit weird...
Anyway,the thought of Gummy bears look cute>.<haha!gummy~gummy~
Keep up with the work!

Actually...I'm not sure what I was trying to do...I just put gummy bears all over. lol
And at the end I thought, "That's random placement...like rain." So that's where I got the text from.
As for the glow:
I was being silly and I added the glow to make them "majestic gummy bears". (which was supposed to be the text at first but my dislike for the phrase grew and grew. lol) And after I made it softer and glowy, I ended up liking the look. So I kept it.
Thank you for your comments~ ♥

SOTW | Robots
---------------------------------------------------------

http://i267.photobucket.com/albums/ii295/snow_ichigo/SOTWrobot.png

I heard robot first and I was all, ew. No offense to anybody, but I, personally, don't like the robotic look all that much. But after awhile of thought I leaned more toward Chobits. And after MORE thought, I decided Sumomo because she's awesome like that. lol
C&C?

poison.ivy
06-13-2008, 03:49 AM
Gummy bears aren't bad, the idea is cool, but yeah, the bears need a bit more work as they're very pixely. But your SOTW entry is great! You see how the image is not "falling out" of the background like the gummy bears do? That's what I'm saying! Way to go, girl! I really like the background on Sumomo one and the text is very good. The only thing I'd remove is that yellowish glow behind her, as it's not really the best color to put with all those pinks and purples... Idk, that tone of yellow just doesn't seem to fit. Overall, very very good, sis! ^^

Tsubaki Yoshikara
06-13-2008, 04:14 AM
Haa!Nice one,yea,like what Ivy said,the yellowish glow dosen't quite match with pink.

@IchigoKiss:
I absolutely promise that I did not notice that the pics were the same!! xD
I was searching for a CCS pic and found this, and then I say, "Oh! That's cute!" So I took it from there, then after I finish it, I come here to upload and I see your sig.
"Oh...snap."
I'm so sorry! But it is kinda funny. XD

I cutted Sakura myself =p just didn't post it yet..
Your new one is ok although since you'll be using that

And probably bright pinks would or could make it eye catching ^^

Sig from post#45 is nice, that effect is very cool, but I agree with Ichigo, you should move the image to the left a bit and add some screaming color :] Your SOTW entry is very cool, I really like the background! What I don't get is why is that orange border so... low quality. Maybe you should try to increase the brush size next time you use it? It works for me ^^

Overall nice work and I'm waiting for your fan button, btw, sis!!

IchigoKiss

The concept of this signautre is good, its just not conveyed properly. Signatures like this rely solely on depth. Effects that will get you depth are the 'Drop Shadow' effect and combinations of Sharpening and Blurring. Try it out.

The Assassin
06-26-2008, 04:04 PM
That isn't bad at all! Very nice. I know that in a million years I probably couldn't make a sig that nice. I like the contrast. Again, good job.:D

Cotaku
06-30-2008, 01:01 PM
@Serated: I don't really have a drop shadow effect, specifically. I have an "outline object" plugin that lets me control angle and softness, so that would be the same, right?
I've always been..."uncomfortable" using the blurs on the render, so I tend to forget about those. But I'll try to start using them in the future.

http://i267.photobucket.com/albums/ii295/snow_ichigo/DemoniSIG_10.png

First, before I forget:
Thank you to IchigoKiss for the Daisuke extract. : 3

With summer comes boredom, and with boredom comes Demoni's sigs! It turned out...horrific in the end. xD
And I'm not quite sure if I blended well...I still don't get how to blend at all. So please bare with me.
C&C?

Your sigs are good Demoni :)

I think they're really good and you're getting better with each one.

The "Angelic Tactics" set looks nice; background, picture and text all fit in perfectly.

Dottie.
06-30-2008, 04:51 PM
Even if you think it's bad, in the end you can see that you have experimented with stock and render. Well, i am pretty sure the background is a stock. You just need to blend the character more and try adding a blur on the stock in the background, also you could try smudging the render a few times and then put the original render on the top. Or try on a new layer > apply image > filters > brush strokes > spatter and erase parts you don't want on the render and parts of the background. Hope i helped x__X;;

Even if you think it's bad, in the end you can see that you have experimented with stock and render. Well, i am pretty sure the background is a stock. You just need to blend the character more and try adding a blur on the stock in the background, also you could try smudging the render a few times and then put the original render on the top. Or try on a new layer > apply image > filters > brush strokes > spatter and erase parts you don't want on the render and parts of the background. Hope i helped x__X;;
Actually, I have no idea what stock, render, and all that stuff is. I just take a picture of a person/gummy bear [xD] and add effects with mah plug-ins. ^_^;;
I don't have "filters" on PDN...at least...not that I know of. xD
But I do have a spatter plug-in. But the whole swing ratio gets confusing for me so I still need to practice with that.
I have trouble with blending. I should get a teacher that's used PDN for this stuff. That would help loads. Maybe I wouldn't suck so much! =D
Thank you for your advice! I'll keep it in mind in the future! ♥

I'm still in the craze of Shugo Chara. I missed my old Hinamori Amu sig, so I made a new one! Believe me when I say, I really tried my best working with blends and blurs on this one, even if it doesn't look like it. xD
C&C please? ♫

SoTW 8 is over so I post now!
I was very pleased with the outcome of this. And this time I actually got a vote! xD
Thank you for your vote lawlietth! I hope I spelled your username correctly! ♥

Anyway,
I had lots of fun with my new spatter brush. Since PDN is going to get a built-in custom brush feature soon, I thought that I should start messing with the plug-in. But I couldn't change the color of the splatter, so that was a bit disappointing, but I still liked the effect. Not sure how it fits into a swimsuit theme, but whatevs! xD

C&C : Always welcome! ♥

Way to go, you're improving! ^^ Oh, and I like your new set, it's cute. Avatar is great, but the text on the sig is a bit odd... Maybe you should work on that. But overall it's a nice set.

This signature is so adorable O: Very nice use of colours and the effects in the background and very intresting use of border. Its good your trying out things but i think just a normal white border would go well with it. Also nice text placement. <3

First of all, for the text, maybe you can make it curve-like so it matches with that half the circle?
I love the background! ^^ It matches with the extraction.
How can you not like that sig!?
Okay, as for blending, I think you should put stuff on the extraction, like the siggy I made you for example, I used brushes on the extraction so it blends..?
Um.. do you get my point..? o.o

I tried to make it curve...but I don't know how to do that on PDN. xD Such a noobish moment it was.

well, it doesn't have to be brushes, it can be anything, that's on the extraction.. at least I think that's how you blend o.o;; blend can also mean to use a colour from the extraction and make the background that looks like the whole siggy is one picture, well, to me it's kinda like camouflage, like animals blends with where they are..? o.o

Not bad on this sig. Sakura has some white bits on here and
and such other parts. I love the b/g all wavy and liquid-ish.
Pretty neat idea with the top and border bottom but uneven?
I don't get the half circle at all though that's one of my concerns =/
Maybe pastel colors? And congrats on SOTW Swimsuits.
I had no idea it was yours at all xD

The signature is a great concept, but here's the thing.
The circle that you made in that corner is really choppy, maybe next time make it more feathered, if you can do that on PDN...

The glow effect on Sakura does not seem to fit in my opinion...
Also, the color scheme should be more pink rather than two completely contrasting colors.
Colors, that's always hard to mess with.

The signature is a GREAT idea, just needs a bit more work here and there.
Be sure to take advice from others and initiate using those advice whenever making signatures.

Maybe you should try GIMP, I heard that it's the closest thing to Photoshop when it comes to free programs.

Cotaku

@Goodylucky: Camouflage? I think I understand what you're getting at [finally.]
@IchigoKiss: The half circle...I'm just experimenting with manipulating borders, but they never look all that great. Hehe.
@Balance: I've heard that about GIMP, too. I've thought about trying it, but I never got around to it. :\

I love this one and is that a splatter? or did it come with it?
Anway the whole 'pop art' things is really good.
Maybe make the borders a bit thiner and less
the capacity of the red and pink so it hurts my eye less ;)

I just realized that for your CCS siggy, the border is transparent o.O;; from the other computer, it was white for some reason, that's why I didn't comment on it much..

ok, now for this siggy, like IchigoKiss said, I luv the splatter effect XD
yeah, it kinda hurts my eyes too o.o
and for that eye part at the right, well, some of them are creepy o.o;; when i first saw it, I was like: "Aliens...?"
try lower the opacity a little?

oh, and I'm glad the word camouflage helped, you're getting better with blending ^^

Dottie.
07-09-2008, 06:31 PM
Hey there Demoni,

When I saw this signature, I was like *o* because i love colourful signatures.

As IchigoKiss said, the red and pink are a lil contrasting or don't fit quite right? I dont know the word, but in my opinion I would have used different colours - remember that certain colours mean certain emotions in art (yes this is art xD). So red is like anger, passion and stuff like that, but the red does go with the character's eyes so I can see why you chose that colour. I think I would have chosen either blue or maybe yellow.

Heh I'm rambling.. x3 Well I really like your choice of extraction and the eye effects. Your choice of text placement, in my opinion, is fine because even I don't know where else it could fit. Anyways, you are getting much better :3 <3 and I hope I helped.




Actually, I have no idea what stock, render, and all that stuff is. I just take a picture of a person/gummy bear [xD] and add effects with mah plug-ins. ^_^;;
I don't have "filters" on PDN...at least...not that I know of. xD



Also, an anime render is something someone has made, an anime extract is someone who has cut out an anime character from a scan, wallpaper, whatever and I think (cause no one actually told me what a stock was and if I get this wrong I'm going to be the biggest fool) is a picture taken by someone, like a car, bridge, city etc.

Sorry, I thought you had Photoshop ^^; well I don't know much about PDN but I'm sure someone here does.

@GoodyLucky: Yesh, I gots photoshop now. I know about the pink parts. xD In the tut she put in a C4D so I just looked for one and found some fractal renders. Are they the same things? I don't have any experience with them or photoshop for that matter, so I'll have to do a lot of experimenting. And thank you for hitting the fourth page! *hi five* ♥

Ok, I don't think fractal render is C4ds.. it looks kinda.. different o.O;;
Alright, comments:
First of all, your "fractal render" effect doesn't seem to match, well, at least not with the background you did. Since you got Photoshop, you can experiment different things now. Check out some tuts and you might get better with Photoshop ^^

Dottie.
07-11-2008, 07:09 PM
Fractal renders are a bit different to C4Ds. C4Ds are bulky while fractal renders are mostly thin and have lots of lines. (I think e_e)

But anywho, Congrats on getting photoshop~ Once you play around with it you'll get better.

The fractal render, I think, looks much better with same colour scheme but it looks kinda out of place in the signature. It can be quite tricky to use, C4Ds and such because some work in some sigs and some don't - but because you are a beginner at photoshop I wouldn't worry about using C4Ds yet, try using more simple techniques to just get the jist of photoshop, then try using them. If I do find any photoshop tutorials for beginners I'll be sure to show you them.

I do like your extraction palcement, and the patterned background and the light effect. In my opinion I would have moved the text somewhere else maybe to the right of her.

But anyways, It's very good for your first signatures in photoshop. Can't wait to see your next ones. <3 :3

Ah, what a cute siggy. I kinda feel like there is a lot of empty space though. Maybe making the signature a bit smaller would solve that? I think the text you used is cute and it serves the siggy well, but maybe if you tried maybe using a different font color like a light green and put a dark green stroke around it, it would stand out more. Overall, its a cute sig and I absolutely adore Sakura.

Yeah, text work is something I have a lot of trouble with as well. x3

New Ed sig: I suck at telling if there is a border or not, but if there isn't I really think you need one because it makes the sig complete. This sig sorta makes me feel like its a part of a quilt and maybe you intended that but the grid like texture makes the sig look kinda dusty and I don't think it should be covering Ed. Since the extract is red, maybe you should work with the red tones in the back and use some c4ds? The text could also use a stroke around it. You should play with it some more ^_^

I'm not a fan of Bravo Girls, but the render looked sooooooo cute! >_<
After all, what's cuter than pocky? Though, I do prefer strawberry over chocolate.
ANYWAY
I got some new brushes! Only two sets, but still. It still seems a bit simple, but it sure does look elegant to me. I was very pleased with the outcome. Though, I'm still not sure if the color of the "organic" brushes is right. I thought it was a good color. *shrug*

I'm not so sure about the text...The font, placement, and color seem a bit...I don't know. But I could find a better place to put it so I stuck it there and added a soft brush stroke under it.

Orange!!! I feel like you like colors a lot. I like the background a lot. I love how everything blends together so well, though I do think that the background shouldn't cover the girl like that on her back. I love the text choice though. I feel this sig would be a bit more powerful if you changed the border though, to something maybe 1 or 2 pixels and dark orange. Other than that, wonderfully amazing.

yay, new set!!
for the avy, I think you should put more gray into it and less yellow, too bright >.>
and now for the set, it's really good, but I don't like how you placed the text over rectangles. still, nice blending ^_^

as for borders, I think for PS, you select a new layer, then go to Edit > Stroke, then you choose your pixels and colour for your border.

Cute new set.
I like how the effects are on the image from the background.
I think there could be a nice effect around the upper left hand corner that could pop out.
The text looks great this time by the way. ^_^

how can you possibly hate the avatar!!
I love the avatar xD
come to think of it, the character looks kinda scared o_O;; I wonder what will happen if you add a phrase that says: "Ahh! A spider!!"
I think um.. for the sig.. you could make it lighter ^_^;;and try some C4Ds... <-- yeah, I'm addicted to C4Ds that's why I think every sig needs C4D... -_-;;
anyway, try every filter, so you can know what each filter does and it might be useful x.x and mess around super much xD

I'd have to agree with Goodylucky there.

But then again, uneven borders can be good as well.
So I wouldn't worry too much about that.

But yes, the colors need to be a bit more flamboyant in my opinion.
Because without color, we are just like dogs who don't understand the beauty of color.
Also it could probably be a little shorter on the height as well.

Keep up the works. I'll drop by more often from now on. ;D

@Goodylucky: For the color part...would adding more orange make it less monochrome? Or would that be no good?

http://i267.photobucket.com/albums/ii295/snow_ichigo/IchigoBleach.png

Before you go saying, "OMG So bright! My eyes!" I was just super bored and challenged myself. I put a flare of light on every layer except the border layer. And other lighting effects.
So yes. It is bright. It is on purpose. And since it was just a fun little project, I didn't add any text.
If you want to, go ahead and C&C. xD

Goodylucky
08-20-2008, 04:18 PM
okay, for the Fruits Basket sig, I think orange could work, but try to not to let it fuse together with the original bg, maybe white will work too ^_^

alright, for the new sig... OMG So bright! My eyes!! jk xD
the light sourse is kinda weird, cuz the light should be coming infront of Ichigo, not behind him... I don't really like the border colour for some reason also >.<
hope to see more sigs from you xD

Perhaps blend your signature in more...
But seriously, it's a good signature.

Jagan Eye

Oh, I totally loved this signature. The text place ment could have been done on the sig instead of the border, but I do like the simplicity of the non-cluttered background. The stock of choice is very cute as well. Love the circles as well. [I'm a sucker for circles XD]

@Jagan Eye: I kept trying different places for the text but it always covered up the circles and that made me angry. I wanted to see more circles! RAWR!

I don't really like the thick line going down the sig, but I know it's part of the tut, so don't worry about it.
Like IchigoKiss said, work on the font and the border. Try to use every font you have and see which one suits better. As for the border, don't just do a simple 2 px/3 px border for 4 sides, try to do like the top and bottom 2 px and left and right part 5 px or something, if you know what I'm getting at x3
You've improved A LOT!! Keep it up~

I had this Lelouch render laying around. Decided to use it. I don't know anything about Code Geass, though. I"ve been wanting to watch it, but haven't gotten to it yet. xD
Bear with me for the text. I'm gonna start practicing that. All that came to mind was "Golden" because I looked at it and I was all, "MY EYES! THE GOLD! THE GOOOOLD!" XD

Try to add some black in there, overall, it's pretty good xD

pops p*~I actually like the font and the effects you have around the font too.

Just feels like there's something missing with all of that empty space.

Do I see a C4D there??
I love the amber, gold glows it reminds me of
an insipiring ad I saw on tv one day...
Anyway Lulu seems abit crispy, you should erase
the c4d on the right and maybe use the sponge tool
or burn tool on him.But I don't think orange's suit
Lulu...maybe aswell work on text and download
or try different fonts should do.
Overall it's been good to see that you used a c4d

Very nice.
Few things though.
As Serated once said, try your best not to spread text around so much. It just seems so random how Demoni is all the way up there. Make it a sub-text underneath the 'Golden' text.
Also, the word "Golden" looks really odd on just a black box that came out of nowhere.
Next time, make it solid, and maybe, if you like, put a drop shadow effect on it.
Also, the background seems like it could have been worked on a little more. Perhaps a bit of clipping mask here and there.
Also, Lelouch looks like he had been WAY oversharpened, and it looks like there are a few spatter effects here and there over at his neck, and the two symbols near his neck area.

Not bad, and great attempt.
Keep it up, and aim for the heavens to get better!

Cotaku
09-15-2008, 09:35 PM
Oh! He is pixelly. o.o;;
And yes, I've gotten into C4Ds ^.^

Okay. I was uber bored and started looking around for tutorials. Found some "vintage" ones and tried them out. I wasn't going to do much with this one. I just wanted it to look like an old picture or something like that. So that's why it's pretty empty.

low opacity I love the textwork though!

crispy...You should erase some of bits on the right because you
really can't see her right arm and maybe a little on her left aswell?
Nice textwork again,imo I'd filp the username upsidedown and put it where the line is

maybe lessen some opacity of random stars incl. the one I just said about.

This has probably got to be your best signature out of all the signatures that you have made so far.

The smudging is excellent, however it seems that it is the only thing that defines your signature other than the sparkles that you added in your signature.

Perhaps if you did a bit of distortion layers and changed the blending options of those layers, then perhaps you would have gained the full potential of this signature.

Also, use color balance if you can...that is if you are using Photoshop. I tend to forget who's using Photoshop or not anymore.

Anyway, the text actually fits and is placed very well.

Great job on this signature, and continue to do what it is that you do, and you will improve as time goes by.

I think this one turned out okay. I don't like where I placed the text, but I couldn't find another place for it. D:
And I'm not sure if the wireframe C4D fits, but I think it looks good. x3

I like your new sig!!Although I just don't like the chara you used..
The wireframes are good,very good the text can go maybe a little bit
more below just where the salmon looking color is..
Why not try using tiny text brushes?Nice work on this one =D

This signature works quite well, I love the softish glow. However I don't think you should've sharpened everything without considering the text. Now that everything else is sharpened the text looks sort of blurred. Otherwise, this signature is rather nice.

@IchigoKiss: I love the chara. [She's Misha from Pita Ten.] But whatevs. xD
I've been trying to find tiny text brushes but I can't find any!
*pouts at teh interwebs* D:
Thanks for the comments! ♥

@Konata Izumi: Oops. I didn't even see the blurry text thing until you
mentioned it. I'll remember to consider the text in the
future. Thanks. ^.^

I kinda like, and I kinda hate this one.
I like it because of the colors and the cute chara. :3
I hate it because of the way the colors are placed.

I'm not too sure if the font fits, but none of my other fonts seemed to fit at all. Also, I think the chara is covered up a bit too much.

Now that I look at it, it doesn't seem very good. ^.^;;

[I think I really need to start using other techniques besides smudging. I think I'm starting to forget how to make a sig without it. xD]
C&C?

I think I know how to make em too ;D
I'll help you look if you like ;3
Moving on your new on is beautiful.
I don't like the left side thought it,
doesn't seem to mix in with the
chara maybe lighten it a bit?
The font doesn't suit maybe
change it to something hmm..
It pretty overall =DD

@IchigoKiss: I'm having a lot of trouble with the left sides of my sigs aren't I? Ugh. Now that I look at it...that blotch that the font is covering isn't so pretty. Oops. D:
Thank you, again, for the comments! :3

I was soooooooo bored. XD
I know that it looks too bright and oversharpened, but I like the way it turned out. Maybe I'm just weird like that. o.o;

Aww. No comments? D:

http://i267.photobucket.com/albums/ii295/snow_ichigo/KnowledgeSIG.png

I like this one. :3
The bg reminds me of space or a planetarium or whatever. And I think that the chara would be at a planetarium or a place like that, so I think the bg and the render go well together.
[Spaaaarklies. xD]
I guess the eyes look oversharpened, though? Or burned too much? D:
C&C?

IchigoKiss
11-08-2008, 06:32 PM
I really like your new one [as always]
The thing is that I don't like the 'disappearing'
chara don't look good imo.You should've put
the text on the left.It's like kinda squashed
on the right..Brighten the chara a bit maybe
just to attract eyes or something! xp

Uber bored. Took me forever to find a good tut.
Didn't follow all the way through, though. I just got funky with the splatter brushes! x3
And I like it! ♥

First thing is the stock quality, not very pleasing. It's oversharpened and the image itself isn't exactly the best quality. Your blending style doesn't work well in this signature and the wireframes just don't look too good. The lighting is in a strange part of the signature and doesn't help at all. The font is fine, though I would lower the opacity a little if I were you.

I think it's best if you stick with large, HQ stocks instead of the small low quality ones, they work better and create better signatures, IMO. The border is quite nice by the way.

A new one without using a tutorial! Omg, I know, right? xD
*Ahem Ahem*
Anyway, I totally love the outcome I got! >__< ~♥
Except...maybe I oversharpened her head area a bit too much? o_o;;
I decided to try something a bit different with the text this time, and I liked that. Maybe I need to get more creative with the text... Hmm.
C&C Please?

~I love it..awsome....=O...Great colors, pretty font and all around it looks adorable =3 the sharpen head looks lovely...it isnt oversharpen for my taste. Without following a tut? O__O; you are great *claps*

IchigoKiss

You kinda did oversharpen-ish...
I just love the colors you chose!
Maybe you should tone done a bit with
the sparkles at the top right-ish
The text is nice but you could've put
something else otherthan your username
but it works a little just a little....
Without following a tut??You should
make a tut out of this then!! <33

Like said before me, it's a little too sharp.

Other than that I don't really see anything wrong. I love the color scheme and the splatter brushes are nice.

The way you have the egdes of the back ground behind the text blending makes it seem as if it were a snapshot of somthing moving which goes awesome with the pose of the character, so great job on that.

Aw, you're latest signature is adorable! The text that says Hypnotic GFX is hard to read.

I think it could have used a little more balance with the warm and cool colors in the BG. The image isn't too sharp so good job with that!

Overall it's a really good signature, keep it up!

Mystical.

I like the colors in your newest sig. The text looks great! Hmm it feels like a big blob of purple or something else should be in that upper left corner though. It looks kind of boring there, like something is missing.

It`s pretty nice.
I don`t like how the hands are covered up like that though.

*Shiori Tenka*
11-21-2008, 05:56 PM
I also don't like how the hands ar covered up, and it's a little too pastelish (copyright if it isn't a word it is now) in my opinion. Maybe ad a beam of light from the right corner providing a light sorce that follows the characters shadow as well at the same time.

The text and other effects are nice and I like the warm feel of the signature.

Keep it up!

Aleyna
11-22-2008, 03:32 AM
I love the whole simplicity of your newest sig. The easy effects you did to the image and background using colors made this sig turn out great. I like the text, but I think it could be better. Great sig though.

Ugh. I've been so busy lately, so I haven't been very active.
I know... this one sucks because of the sharpness and junk... I was trying to go for the sharpened look and it looked okay in PS, but then it didn't look so good after that. xD
Well... Aside from the sharpness...

~hmmm there is too much yellow...for my taste...and you've over sharpend it too much ^^" those effects are great but you really added too much yellow ^^"

Konata Izumi
12-04-2008, 06:09 AM
I've learnt that with sharpness there should be also amounts of blurred space, right now I don't see what you're trying to achieve with the signature actually. ;;
Sakura does not blend in at all, the large amounts of yellow somewhat hurt the eyes and the effects clash, flow isn't too awesome either. The text placement and color of it is quite nice and creative, sort of flows despite the other effects.

The latest one with Haruhi is pretty nice, blending isn't too bad and there's a nice transition of the colors. Although I believe you have oversharpened it by quiet a lot and Haruhi is too red in her face. x__x
