View Full Version : Danie's Showcase 2.0

12-30-2007, 03:55 AM
My old one was locked, so I opted to make a new one. Now, I'm starting my new showcase with the following:

Tsukasa render in a real place stock. The only thing I did here was a some layer adjustments and blurring. Lots and lots and lots of blurring. I was trying to achieve depth but I think, it failed.


For this one, well Coco Cake requested this... I think I'll make a new one since this came out wrong...




Yeah, I know. Text sucks... -.-

I think the Tsukasa one has plenty of depth and the render blends in well although I find it a little bit too blurry at some places x3 but that's really minor.

The one you made for Coco cake... did you smudge it? Because I think the smudged part is a bit too blurry. Meh, I just like sharpened things xD but I like the concept of the sig.

Keep it up~

I think that the first one came out very nicely. I like the depth, though maybe the very end of the road could have been blurred to show the stretch, but other than that, I like it very much.

I agree with Megami on the second sig - the background looks very blurred. It might look better if it was sharpened. I like the colors though. Nice sigs! XD

Uhm, the signature/s for Coco... I intentionally blurred the background. I just love blurring things. And it was what I was taught to give a signature depth... although they said there were other ways. [ I still stick to blurring things though... :3 ]


A random stock signature. It came out really bad at the start, with pen tooling, C4Ds, layer adjustments, filters, brushes... everything. :O So, in an annoyed manner, I smudged it. I just smudged it and turned it black and white cause the colored version sucked. I think it came out fine now... or not. :3

Well, update:

A request I made for a friend. I didn't like the one with the text so much. Gah. He required me to make something that has text so I did just that. It's also the first time I used a render in a long time.



This one was a request by Hotarubi Iga...



And this last one is my personal set, although I won't be able to use the avatar in this site since it's too big. -.-

Well, I can say you certainly have an interesting style.. Although some sigs seem really empty despite the good effects. I'd say add text.. *scrolls through once again*

Hmm.. and in the ones you've used text, you need to work on font choice and text placement. Text is frustrating though, huh? ^^ Since it can make or break a sig.

01-05-2008, 06:37 AM
they are good but you need to use more brushes, or maybe some c4d's, whatever you want and like
anyway, i like 'em

I like the sigs in the last post, especially the second Mystic Eye sig and the last set. The colors and effects are very nice. Awesome sigs! ^^

Wee I love your sets =3 Thanks for Coco's sig! ^^ It is great! =) Love your style~

01-07-2008, 08:04 PM
a little blurry...but not to bad! and as you said "the text sucks" but surely a smart person like you could fix it???? =D

03-11-2008, 06:33 AM
I know it's really late but... thanks for the comments! :3

Anyway, after asking Flash to re-open the thread since it hasn't been posted in... months, I'm gonna post what I've been doing.

And it isn't alot.


A drawing by a friend that I turned into this.


Enma Ai from Jigoku Shoujo. Love the cherry. <3


And Saber from FSN.

Oh yeah. That's what I've been doing for the past few months when I died. >>

Oooh, the saber sig is very nice.
The text is a little hard to see, and it's a little plain on the left, but still very pretty.
She looks a little over sharpened. The colors you chose makes the sig have an overall calm feeling, so I would blend her into the light tan-ish and white colors some more. =3

Nice sig. Love it <3 Keep up the good work!

03-16-2008, 05:07 AM
Lol. Thanks... and yeah. It is a bit plain on one side and Saber's a bit sharpened.

New things!

I've now tried icons... and these are all Naruto themed. :) Nyeah. I know. Not that good... but it's better than not trying at all right?

I really like that Sasuke one..but why didn't you make a "SAI" one? ;]

03-16-2008, 11:13 AM
I like the Sasuke one as well.
I like the way you brought the tone down.

03-17-2008, 08:44 AM
Thanks for the comments.

@ Sai: Well, I've never thought of it. :3

DANIE!!! ;-; *Clings to your arm* You!! You abandon me and deprive me of you're beatiful work!! You should be ashamed!
(And I'd like to make a request XD)


03-27-2008, 11:13 AM
Eh. Fuu from Samurai Champloo... I think. Actually, just a random search for a render to use.

Black and White: { Not bordered } { Bordered }

@ Lady: Of course, Danie would love to make her big sis a request. ^^

03-27-2008, 11:35 AM
I like this one best. the colors are dull though.

and its TINY!
and im noticing, the tag you wear.
Too much colors in it. try lessening it to...2 or 3. Looks nice overall =D

04-02-2008, 08:15 AM
I was trying to make a whee sprite sig by resizing a render but failz. -_-


I dunno. After seeing a person's liquify-ing prowess, I tried it.


Yesh. And I do notice that the focal ish... bleh. It had a grainy texture. >>

04-27-2008, 03:40 AM

House. Tut based...


This one is the best of them all =D I like the party-ish background!

Colors not working well though. Also, forced lightings =x

04-27-2008, 01:40 PM
I like the sasuke one! I think i've been here before...hmm...

you're styl''s quite good! How long you been making sigs? You seem to have vast knowledge on how to go about things (im referring to sigs here...)

Great sigs - I love the vertical one - the text at the bottom looks great - it looks like a clipping mask to me. ^^ I also like the Naruto sig - the concept is nice, and I like the minimal color usage. The "dying slowly" sig is my favorite - the colors are very nice, and I like the lighting. The House sig is a little hectic, and the light source is kind of covering his face, perhaps a little too much. I like the text though! Overall, awesome sigs.

04-28-2008, 03:29 AM
@ Unli: Thanks. ^^ I've always had the problem with colors.
@ karuto: Uhm.. I've started making signatures since about a year ago but only used Photoshop about.... 7 months ago? Lol... vast knowledge? I beg to differ. x3
@ Mira: Lol thanks. For the vert, yeah... clipping masks. I'm addicted to them.

Back with 2 more. 0.0

Lelouch stock request from someone.. somewhere. His face was too big!
