View Full Version : nespa siggy's

02-26-2008, 04:22 PM
Wel i am back. I got to busy the last few months to make any siggy with the exception for a few reqeusts and i found out my other thread was closed thanks for that mira :). I wanted it to be closed anyway.

Important: I wil not react to things as "your work sucks" or "how do you manage to get something so pixalated". My art is diffrent there wil always be something wrong with it. I do listen to critiques though so lets not have another art war like in the last thread please. It took 3 pages or so lol. I wil also my friends please do not react to those comments simply said if people cannot say anything that helps they should be ignored.

Your Cloud and "Pleasure" sets are real good Nes! I like the backgrounds that you've used and the pictures are nice. Hope to see some more soon.

02-26-2008, 05:05 PM
Why does Cloud look so streched? It makes it look bad, imo. The background's decent. Seems like a splatter effect.

Then the render on my pleasure set looks bad with the really weird edges, you should use the smudge tool. Oh and blending in the renders with the background would help you a bit.

Overall 5/10

Cloud Avi: It was a good part of the picture that you took in the avi and it was done quite well. Nice borders and all fine.

Cloud Sig: The stock had good quality and the background was nice. It has your usual borders and it's very good. well, maybe you could not have included the text in the splatter effect but otehr than that, it's nice!

Pleasure Avi: Personally, I'm not a fan of it. Maybe you could have made the picture smaller... so that the shadow may not be mistaken as an "out of place black colors"

Pleasure Sig: It has matching colors and it really blends well. The stock is clear and the text is, too. I really love the text in this one, simple, matchign fotn color and not too big or too small.

Overall: For me, I prefer the Cloud Strife set better. But the Pleasure set is also good. Cloud Strife: 9/10 My Pleasure: 7/10

I love your Rider sig, Nespa. The picture is good, the background looks nice and the text is good too. The blending is good and I hope to see more soon.

02-27-2008, 04:14 PM
You have good concepts, you just gotta work a bit more on executing them. Try not stretching the render so much ^^

I really like the seras victory set, Nespa. The background and the picture are really good!! The misa set is good as well, but the avvy is blurry and I can't see it good enough. Anyways, hope to see some more from you soon :)

02-29-2008, 04:46 PM
The Seras set is decent. Pretty much the cleanest one in terms of image quality I've seen so far 7/10

Now the Misa one I really don't like. I understand if you wanted to focus over her necklace but why do you strech it so much it becomes pixelated? I really don't like the avy. The sig has problems. Misa looks kinda squished and the edges look all jagged. The border seems to fit just fine, but I don't like the overall square pattern effect you gave it.

Yurka please give comments that actualy help. That you do not like it is just giving your opinion it does not help me forwards. If your incapable of giving comments that help then do not comment at al.

I am giving you good advice, but you don't seem to listen. I did go over your old topic and actually took the time to read it all.

You don't seem to take criticism too well, then again I don't understand why you ask me to give you 'helpful' advice in the first place since there were lots of people that told you what to change in order to get better but you just answered with the "I'm not gonna change my style" crap.

A graphic designer needs to take comments positively and actually reflect on them. In order to get better you need to constantly be learning and changing the way you do your sigs, but as far as I can see which was your topic from last year your sigs have barely changed at all, just because you don't wanna stray from your "style".

Besides by posting your works here you should know that there's always gonna be someone that's gonna answer harshly or whatever, but I'm not gonna lie and tell you they are fantastic pieces of work because honestly, they aren't.

It's your problem if you wanna listen to advice or not, but if you've really been at this for a few years like I read at your other topic and your work still seems like that of a beginner, I'd start to wonder if you really should have wasted all those years making them.

Seriously, change isn't bad. Just try it for once.

If you know so wel how a signature should look then why don't you open your own siggy thread?.

Hm....You're style looks exactly the same as it did 2 years ago Nespa O_o

I'm glad you're able to appreciate your style, but having your signatures look almost identical in style as they did years ago means that you haven't improved. [I should tell you, Yurka does have his/her own thread. ><']

Anyways, i'll comment on your sakura set cause it's my favorite one. =3
You've kept your render unpixelated in the sig, which is great. I don't think you use photoshop, so I'm assuming you have no idea what the pentool or the smudging tool is. The border looks like it's cutting into her arm, and I don't like that ><'. The pink flowerish border is cute, but I think sakura could blend into the bg better. She kinda looks like a sticker. This is probably because she has a thick black line around her.

The avatar is still pixelated though :/. if it's possible, please stop pixelating your renders. I know it's your style, but if your renders weren't so pixelated, your sets would improve a bunch. =3

03-02-2008, 05:07 PM
Background is done with smudge tool so i know where that is. i am working on the pixlated part as wel. But if you have seen the work of two years ago and my work now you should see improvend not the same thing. also i checked out yurka thread not my style so any comment of mine would make it look i was angry at him/her for her posts in my thread and i pass for that.

Also i prefer your kind of critiques you tell me what is wrong and what to do about it.

a old sig


see the diffrent :)

oke i think i covert most of the critque points.

Hey there again! I really like the Sakura Dreams sig - the colors match much better, and the extract is hardly stretched at all. I also like the Misa sig, though I think you may have oversharpened. She looks a bit too jagged to me. Other than that, your sigs are looking better - work on some color blending in the background. Good job! ^^

03-05-2008, 02:52 PM
i keep it in mind ^^

Holla Nespa!

I think the Dark one turned out well! Good stuff.


03-07-2008, 05:19 PM
Did you start doing this on Photoshop or something? Anyways, I'll rate your Edward set.

For some reason, the image quality looks bad on it, not just this one, but all of them. Are you saving it as .jpg? Save it as .png. That's the best quality.

The text is just <33 I love the effects and the way the text is placed. The cool thing is that you made it in a different perspective.

The background looks like you got it from someone else. Did you make the background as well? You should try making your own backgrounds by using brushes.

You're getting there! Keep up the good work!

03-17-2008, 01:29 PM
can asure you i make my background myself as for you sugestion i make a sig and saved it in both png and jpg and honestly i saw no diffrence. I do use apophiys to make the brushes though maybe one looked familiar?

I disagree with you itachi; the Gaara siggy is awesome, and a bit scary too!! The Tsukasa siggy and avvy are really good. The pic and background are great!! Keep up the good work :)

Very nice siggies Nespa!!
You ccs is my fav ^^ and so is your Anime Princess one ^.^
BUT I think you should improve on your streching images and text.
[ ehhehe :unsure: ] like take example of your anime princess one.
I think that the text should be more elegant and curvy-ish.
You can download some ^^. And now with the pixel streching...
You really should improve because like in your avi of the set 'Misa Amane'
It's like it's zoomed in =/ Also that maybe stop with the borders
for a while and try brushes and textures. You can find some at google [hehe] Or even try transparent siggies >.< you just have to save them as a .png....
Anyway overall I think they're great :: 5.5 / 10

And as Yurka said...

Seriously, change isn't bad. Just try it for once.

And please don't take my comments 'harsh' I'm only trying to help

Your signatures are very nice, Nespa!
I especially like your Chobits one. I think Chi is very cute in it. And I love the roses in the background.
Keep up the great work! ♥

When I asked Nespa for a signature, I gave all the detail I thought was sufficient and then pictured it in my head. As it turns out, the signature Nespa made for me was way beyond what I had imagined myself, and on the first try at that! You're truly skilled beyond measure, Nespa. Thanks again!
