FINALLY I'm onto my second thread. But I'm not going to lose it here. I'll save it for later. Here are some new things I couldn't put up earlier...

The first one is quite good kinda ava style
imo..colors are good nice placement with the text!
Congrats on 2nd thread
First sig is good probably would of brought the text more to the right and down some.
Avie is cute and love the style and colors
Second sig love it ... maybe lower the opacity some on the light behind her then again nice sig the way it is.
Avie just love it.. colors , looks and all.
For those who don't know yet--
I've made a tutorial on the next ava here http://www.animeforum.com/showthread.php?t=80081
And I don't remember putting these up before. They're a month old now.
Also, my would-be SOTW entry:
...which I stupidly submitted to Surion instead of Serated and ended up getting disqualified T_T
I've always wanted to make a graphic out of that scan. Good job again!
Hmm... I like your use of text, although I'm not hugely fond of this one. It's good, it's just not..great. Hair and.. pen tool, do I see? Work out nicely, but I don't really see how 'burn' goes with any of it, unless I abstract quite far. That's not really a measure of your graphic prowess, though, so nevermind it. One thing I am noticing is your lack of borders. It kind of makes them.. incomplete, to me, but I can see why you'd have problems with the solid color strokes. Perhaps you could try a 1px black inside stroke set on overlay?
I don't really like the colors on this, and if I hadn't seen the top image first, the crop would confuse me thoroughly.
On an icon, you have to remember to cut down everything. Probably would've reduced the overlay text on the first to just two lines (vs. three) and maybe gone with lower case on 'heart' entirely.. but that's somewhat style point of view. Second one is a little confusing, but in a good way, so no real critique.
You finally do a damn border :P Which... doesn't really match :/ The eyedropper tool is a pretty safe bet to always use if it's not a solid black you're going for, and it's a little heavy, honestly. Love your text styling, although F - orest is a little far apart..
The space on the left kind of bothers me, maybe try smudging to blend it?Or pasting part of the original image moved over so it blends under the layer (if that makes sense).
The yellowish-redish towards the text works really nice, less a fan of the lavenderish cast by the lighting effects.
I really do enjoy your work. ^__^` You've got some unique ideas, I can appreciate that.

~First of all: Congrats to your 2nd thread *claps*
Second: I love the first sig and ava. Lovely colors, textures and all around: They are just awsome work! pleeze teach me how to make a similar avatar like this one:
Those are some great tags! I love the soft approach in lighting and compo
WHOA!! That's some response. Must say that I was not expecting this.
Atziluth: THANK YOU!! I was getting bored with no critique. Whatever you said is sure to get me working.
And, yeah, "burn" just doesn't make any sense there, but that was the first thing that the sig reminded me of. Me and my ideas. I don't have photoshop so no pentooling. Just plain stocks, so I have to make do with them.
Miss-a: Glad you liked the ava. But the spiral thing is...I think it's from Mira's tutorial...or was it .Lovebeat? Maybe Ichigokiss...
No idea where I learnt it from, but it's from AF and that's all I know. I'll give you the PSD if you want ^^ Just PM if it's a yes.
Unli: What's this???!! No harsh criticism????
ah well. So my shades are all brown now are they? I thought it was always red-yellow. Then again, that does make up a sort of brown.
Y'know, one of my desires is to actually surpass you. I don't think I ever will though. It's just too hard. But i'm not going to stop trying.
And you're going to be more harsh next time.
Why look!! It's my adorable little neice!
AH KARUTO~Balance said that you'd be one of the sig goddesses in AF!
I love your stuff,especially the 1st sig in the 1st post...hmm....would you mind making a tut or teach me how to do this?I'm really a big fan of this style but....I don't know how to do it TT *Sobs*
I wanna see more~whee!!!
Lol...I'm Back!FYI:Shana FTW!:3
Tsubaki: Balance been spreading the word, eh? Thank him for me, would you?
And me making a signature tutorial is...uh...not a good idea. I'll hand you the PSD and explain with detail if you like. Just PM me for it ^^
xXdark_angel_nekoXx: Thanks for stopping by ^^
I've been going a little football [soccer] crazy lately. David Villa is my favourite-st player. So here's one of him::
Sorry, Mr. Villa. I ruined your pic T_T
Another new one. This time of Robert Pattinson starring in Twlight. This one is him as [my] Edward Cullen.
Nothing much in it. I've lost it because of these exams I'm having. And they're here to stay 'til the end of the week x_x
I really like this one. The character is adorable. And I like the text.
NARIEL!!!! Nice to see that you're back ^^
Second one is the outcome from Moonlight_serenade's tutorial.
What I originally did:
Then after adding some noise:
Now with a hint of black and white...
And an ava to go with it:
On your recent.
Why dont more people do stuff like you? Its very good. It seems to have a very nice atmosphere giving it depth even if that was not your intention. Even the backwards K seems to give it more of a depth like feel to it.
My only call on this is that there are two things that should be improved. The first is the left side of the signature that has just an enlarged portion of the stock on it. If you filled it with stuff more to the effect of what you have one the right, it would really help balance it out.
The second is that it is relatively colorless in its overall composition. The pink bright are is great, but it really needs more because it sort of feels too gray in color. If you went with some light blues, or even just a few more pink spatters, then I am sure you could bump up the quality of this.
You are doing very well, and have improved drastically in a short period of time. You should take more of this stuff and enter it into a SOTW or something.
I really like this avatar. Pretty! I like the shades it came out in. I like the signature too. I always love red eyes on a grey-greyish person.
This set is lovely (: as are your others, but I really like this one its stands out from the others =)
Really well done, & your really good with adding text (: Lighting & Tone are really nice aswell. Unique Style, very pretty (:
Would you be able to make a tutorial for this set?
j u s t p l a i n o r d i n a r y.
Mm, recent one seems cool : D
the lighting around the middle is especially interesting.
But I'm not really liking the left side, you could clearly see there's another character in there, so usually 2 people = 2 focus points. I say replace it with something not supposed to catch attention.
Hello to LVL2 of Karuto
You improved well >8D
Serated: You don't drop by much, do you? Well I'm glad you did. Really appreciate that. And you're right. I wasn't entirely aiming at depth. It just ended up that way.
Nariel: Glad you liked it ^^ I have another one like that in my old thread. It came out nicer than this one, though.
Binky: It definately stands out from the rest of my creations. But I doubt I can do a tutorial. You'll have to wait fro me to get a little better as there is a major flaw in this sig.
And thank you for coming ^^
THERE you are, Onii-chan. I missed you T_T
I knew that putting in the face of the stock would be a mistake but nothing else fit. And it's too late to do anything about it now. [Imageready, remember?] I have to keep stamping the image. So if something goes wrong, I have to leave it at that or start over.
LVL2 it may very well be; but take a look at this next one. It might change your mind.
[signature: girl with straw hat]
I'm loving this one so far, still needs some text, but looks fabulous so far! The depth and blending on this one are perfect! Nice color choice as well. I'm in agreement with Unleh - awesome improvements! ^^
Glad you like it Mira. But the thing is it's incomplete. If anyone would like to help me finish it, then please PM me and I'll give you the PSD.
This is Jagan's foolycooly tutorial outcome sans the scanlines. There's actually 3 versions of it, but Photobucket is giving me some uploading trouble due to my crappy internet connection. GAH!!
And the winning entry to last weeks' SOTW
