After a long pause I've started making again sigs and so on. My latest work:


why is it named 'Wall Or Sig'? Because I have previously worked on a wall, and then turned it ionto a siggie!!!

Thanks Bloody for the comment, but -lol- I've got to say that I didn't use any brush excepting on the smudge! Just some filters from Gimp.
The next one is BRUSHES FREE!
Any comments? please post more I've got to improve myself!

Anyway, 'Kon The Ultimate':
Please comment. I really need more pieces of advice. There is surely place for improvement!

I want some comments now!

thank you so much dear <3 I love it.
now, the comment, as you asked ^-^ :
The right image looks a little jagged on the edges;
for the rest they're both great.
Might just been a little more blending with the background,
but overall it's awesome. <3
keep it up honey!

Thanks for the comments!
new stuff:
a cloudy Sig:http://i113.photobucket.com/albums/n237/Innuyasha16/clouds_7.png

and a super-dooper wall. I love this one! These two were originally made as contest entries for DT.

I demand new comments! Now! xD :)
I would appreciate it if you could give me also some pieces of advice about improving my GFX technique or skills, etc.

Thanks all for your comments, and also pms.

NEWSflash: I switched yesterday to Photoshop CS2.
The next pieces of work, might not be so professional like the ones before. I have to get to know all the PS commands and so on.
But I had a big help, Wonderwice.
All these sigs were made in colaboration with her:

1st collab-work :



Any comments?

01-13-2007, 09:13 PM

Time for an update.
Siggie in collab with Wonderwice:
One made entirely be me:
Trying to teach myself how to extract hair:
What do you think?

01-20-2007, 04:11 AM
These are really cool, I like the Sora and Kon ones and the background on the green one.

01-20-2007, 12:55 PM
Nice work, but you need to work on your stock blending, it looks like you mash the background into something, stick a render you found on someone elses site into the image and then put your name on it (IE The Burnout 5 Picture, all you did was put "BURNOUT" on it and then your name)

Not trying to be mean, just trying to give you a hand on your upcoming images

01-20-2007, 09:44 PM
omg! i love the collab with u and wondy....where is that guy from though??? well the image reminds me of the manga series land of the blindfolded
anyways im liking the pixel effect...im trying to figure out how in the world u do that effect on psp and ive been hounding down brushes to find a brush like that, oyeah and the diagonal lines r nice

liking the border and font on the hawk sig, that swirl brush effect is a nice touch too

lol and i don't know how u do that hair thing but i like the idea, the girl kinda looks a tad bit like scully with that do :D

Ok---...Just posting to get some new comments, and to answer those above:
to those who like my work: Glad!
@Wing: it's true..I used a lot of renders/extractions someone else did, because I hate extracting. But you can't even imagine how much work I've put in the BurnOut one you mentioned. The main extraction scores highly, but if you look close... you'll find also a lot of other elements I created, like the street, the blending in, the scattered pieces..anyway..thanks for your criticism.
aw...and not to forget: the green sig was made with the help of Hiroaka's Brush set.
@Bloody:Very glad you like it ^^ but I don't know from where's that guy. You must ask Wondie. And those 2 effects you mentioned, were made with 2 brushes. I could redirect you to my source, if you want.

New things...like always chronological order
1 more collab with Wonder(contest entry over at DT):
Car sig:
the so-called 'minimalist sig':
I Hate Stairs:
And something really, really new:
sig version (without border):
and common image:
What do you think, hum?

01-29-2007, 03:17 PM
ohhh well i figured out what the pixel effect is claled now...its a dither...i jsut added that effect to a new sig i did and i think it looks great

and the spiral staircase amuses me ^-^
