I'm ready to take on requests so...

Time for an update! I have been making signatures for about two weeks, and I wanted to share some of my better signatures! You will see these down below as well. ^^

Made for myself

For Red

Random made, can be customized for you. ^^

For Hotarubi Iga

Another random

Go on down for more examples of my work~

04-09-2008, 07:31 AM
OH OH! I use CS2 as well!!


Your borders are lovely and you're good at quotes too. That's very nice. But you still need a bit more time to improve. Siggy making is not hard at all. You'll probably be doing requests at the end of the month!

Try to work on blending the colours of the character more and not just slapping the extract on to the image. Use gradent maps. They help a lot. And you could also work on some depth. Not that I'm any good at it, but still. You could always PM someone for help or do a collaborated job with someone. It's loads of fun ^_^

New member? Enjoy your stay! You'll love it here...

04-09-2008, 07:48 AM
The concepts are nice, I just dont like how you have buffed up the text and spread around all over the place. You should put all your text together in one area. Also, the signatures lack some blending that could be well added. Other than that, the render and colors are a very nice combination

04-09-2008, 08:04 AM
If you were to get more serious on signature making, I recommend making the text a bit smaller ^^;;

Your first ever pwned my first ever.

Me liking your third, so;
The text and font choice isn't so hawt. And try sharpening the girl (Filter > Sharpen > Sharpen)

get active and i'll bomb some more post in here

04-09-2008, 08:12 AM
I have to admit that I am not that good in signatures (I haven't the slightest idea how you even make one. lol^.^) but I think that you are really good for a beginner, compared to others. As a matter of fact if you hadn't wrote down that you are new at this I would never have guessed that. ^_^ The last one is my favorite, I guess I just like the concept. you're doing well, remember that experience comes from practice so I guess that the only thing you can do now is listen to the advices from Serated and karuto and keep on training. :)

04-09-2008, 05:58 PM
Wow! Thank you all so much! I think the three of them aren't really so good, but it is good to know that I am using some correct techniques! ^^ I am just now learning gradients and patterns. I was relying fully on brushes I had downloaded.

I re-vamped "Sweet Perfume" here was the result:


Still not perfect, but I think it was a vast improvement.

Then today, for the first time ever, I tried a transparent signature. I went off a tutorial and this was my 'practice the steps' end result:


There is probably so much more I can do to make it better, if you have any suggestions, let me know!

Thank you all, again, for all your great help! It is very appreciated!!

04-09-2008, 09:45 PM
Ohh i think they are very nicee!

may i use the third???
Yep, you sure can! ^^

04-10-2008, 12:37 AM
I really like your third siggy the most Yuki :)

The picture and background go well together. You're very good for a beginner. I hope to see some more from you real soon!

04-11-2008, 09:26 AM
Awesome sigs Yuki-chan
I use CS2 aswell >.< [ YAY ] Anyways I love your transparent sig I love
the colors you used for the character, I really think it stands out!

04-11-2008, 02:00 PM
Thank you! I made the following yesterday:


This was a request from Keroppi-Chan ^_^


And this one was for me, obviously. ^^;

Thank you all for the great advice & comments! <3

The Nightingale
04-22-2008, 08:59 AM
I would loves if you coulds make one with mah username. XD Im not picky ^^

pretty please and thank you ^^

04-22-2008, 11:00 AM
I think you are doing an awesome job. I don't have photoshop so I have been using other programs and still need a lot of improvement. I really love the Keroppi Chan and Sweet Perfume sigs. The sweet perfume sig is nicely blended and it is simple and elegant. Your color choice is good and you are doing well. Take other experience members advice and run with it. :)

04-22-2008, 08:32 PM
I would loves if you coulds make one with mah username. XD Im not picky ^^

pretty please and thank you ^^

Well, this is what I came up with:


Tell me if it is too big, or wrong colors, or generally anything you don't like about it. I won't mind to fix it! ^o^


I had another request from Keroppi-Chan! ^_____^

Here was the result!


*Edit again*

Just wanted to add another sig I made, and since no one is posting, then I have to keep editing! XD;;


Krista Logan
04-26-2008, 11:38 AM
I still love them Yuki! I don't want to stress you out because I know your making other sigs too, but I just wanted to comment on your work so far! :)

04-26-2008, 11:56 PM
I love your new siggies Yuki-chan, especially Keroppi's one and mine!! You're really talented!! Keep up the mind-blowing work!! :)

04-27-2008, 02:29 AM
Thank you all so much!!

I made a few more signatures... you see most of them displayed as current sigs right now, but I'm gonna post them to keep them up when the people take them down. ^^

For my best friend, for another forum.


For Red ^^ <3

The following are for myself, however if you would like to use one, then tell me and I can edit it to fit you. ^^


Love the idea of this one

My favorite of the three!

Tell me what you think, or request something for yourself or a friend! ^_^=

04-27-2008, 03:46 AM
I like the second siggy to be honest!! The photograph-like borders are awesome!! Can't wait for more wicked work from you!!

04-29-2008, 12:36 AM
I've made more signatures and I am open for requests now, so request away!





05-02-2008, 01:35 PM

Would you be able to make one for me at alll? I dont' want to be cheeky as I'm still quite new xD Perhaps something to with my name like you did for Twilight Dreams? If thats okay with you of course!

05-02-2008, 02:00 PM
Would you be able to make one for me at alll? I dont' want to be cheeky as I'm still quite new xD Perhaps something to with my name like you did for Twilight Dreams? If thats okay with you of course!

Not a problem at all! Do you have a certain picture you would like to use? Or any specific colors?

05-03-2008, 06:39 AM
Ermmmm not sure.
If it helps I really really like Air TV - hence the Tohno Minagi avatar - so perhaps something from that?

Light Buster
05-03-2008, 08:36 AM
Can you get a signature of Yuki Nagato and Haruhi Suzumyia with their guitars? That would be awsome.

05-03-2008, 09:29 AM
I would also like to request a siggy. Please feel free to not do it if you don't have the time, just tell me :D I don't want to overload you.

I don't care what the picture is, but I thing the colors orange and red would be good and with my name.

05-03-2008, 09:34 AM

Um...are you still taking requests? ^^;

If so, can you make me one with Rena Ryuugu from Higurashi No Naku Koro Ni? ....With my dumb username on it but without the squiggles (~)? XD

I'd like yellows and oranges as the main color scheme.

I just basically want something to sorta match with my avatar...

Thanks if you can! ^^

05-18-2008, 11:40 AM
As always thank you all for saying great things about my signatures! Anyone with some suggestions or anyway I can improve? ^^

And i would like it do look dark or evil..
And i would like my name in as well...
The size.. i would like the biggest possible for this forum :)...
Well i guess thats all...

Thanks in advance :D...

05-18-2008, 01:35 PM
Ooh, out of your newest ones, I like the Simply Fade one the best. Its nice because its very simple and doesnt look too cluttered with effects ^.^ The other ones are great too, I like the one for Darling Dream too, it has a nice bright look to it :3

05-18-2008, 02:16 PM
Awesome new sigs Yuki!!~~
I aswell second the simply fade sig.
The colours are good and hurts your eyes less [yeah]
But that doesn't mean that I don't like your other ones doesn't it??
I love all of your sigs >0<
Well done!!~~

05-19-2008, 03:02 PM
wow, you sure get lots of requests eh?

anyway, for your last post,

the first siggy is well done, I like the background. except for I don't think the text colour should be blue... o.O;; it should be yellow or orange so it can fit the theme. (just my opinion though, don't get mad..!)

second siggy: it's well done, I like the way you did every background of your siggy, but why are there brown in it? and, you should make the character stand out more.

third siggy:I'm not sure if photoshop does this, but can you fade the character without the lines? if not, then the siggy is 10/10!! hooray!

fourth siggy: again, why are there blue in it... shouldn't it be a colour off the character, wait, Sakura's clothing has blue o.O;; but I think it should be white and brown for the background though.. and the extraction isn't clean, cuz there are some white parts... but the other extractions are good...! I can't extract that well cuz I only have magic wand for extraction ;_;

sorry I said tooo much things that might hurt your feelings ;_;
but keep on practicing and one day you'll be a pro!! ^^

05-22-2008, 05:33 PM
Another update with a few from me, but first:
@Kitsune~Girl - Thank you! I made the simply fade one so simple, so the saying of the text would match, you know "Simply" = simple sig and "Fade" = well her fading. XD;; I also love the Darling one, one of my favorites to date!

@IchigoKiss - Thank you! And sorry I hurt your eyes! o.o;;

@GoodyLucky - Well, I already talked to you, didn't I! XD;;

Okay, on to the new ones!

My current signature <3

This was the first play on it, I liked it, but not as much as the other one!

First version of this one, just a random one I made, extract by Serated!

I don't know which I like more of the two, though.

A request! ^^

Another request, I'm not fond of how it turned out, but she loved it. ^_^

and of course:
My entry for contest #2. ^_^=

05-22-2008, 07:27 PM


This one is really creative. I think you did really good on this one.
Always loved signatures that go beyond the typical signatures.

13lack Sheri
05-24-2008, 01:23 PM

This ones really cool. I like the design and everything it goes perfectly :]


this one i like the words floating around in the background


I like how you made things float around her its really cool.

Oh can I also request something?

05-24-2008, 04:33 PM

I like this one better than the other one, cuz it black gives me the evil looking lol, this time, I won't say that many bad things.. sooo perfect!
I love your style so much!


I like this one better.
because the flower match with the render's fan, but the stars doesn't.
and the font replacement is better also!
(I'm getting hyper now lol)


it's ok, but the render is sooo small...! I want it bigger so I can draw it lol jk XD
is it just me, or is it that the phrase doesn't match?
she'll keep on trying? trying what? o.o;; what's the character got to do with trying lol


wow! this one is sooo cool! I love it..! I got nothing to say (I know, it's spam...)


yeah, I figure it's yours, it looks like your style lol
btw, is the font like that or did you edit it or something, I can't really read it o.o;;
is it, uh, un-- con-- ven what, tional? what does that word mean lol,
I know sooo less words ;_;

overall, I think you can try out different styles other than stars/flowers.
keep it up!! Post more..!

05-25-2008, 12:47 AM
hi. i would like a siggy to go with my account :) if you can. i would like a possible 1 of 2 sigs.

one would be wolfwood from trigun with the text "never give up"

and the second one would be a picture of Cid from Final Fantasy 7 with the text " The skys the limit"

other than that i would like to see you do the rest and id look forward to seeing your work :)

05-25-2008, 01:04 AM
Lol- I sure did love it YukiOnna!! It's great! I could never make something as good as yours! Man, I need photoshop C32 or whatever is it ^^ I have 7.0, but you can't upload from the extension! Either way, I lurv ur work Yuki!

05-25-2008, 02:18 AM
can i request a siggie of the blair witch from soul eater

05-25-2008, 07:10 AM
Awesome signatures I'm seeing here thus far!
Hmm... could I request a dragon signature? And could it possibly have 'Neflarian, Nightime Dweller' written somewhere in it?

05-25-2008, 03:04 PM
Wow! Lots of replies and requests!


@Balance - Thank you! I'm trying to find my own 'groove' to fit into, and I want it to be 'different'. Stand-outish, you know? ^_^

@Hotarubi Iga - Thank you! Your requests are coming, sorry it's taking me so long!

@13lack Sheri - Thanks! The first one you posted, that is one of my favorites! And, your request will be coming soon!

@GoodyLucky - Thank you! And the small one was the size she requested ^^ and also the words are the ones she wanted, so I'm sure they mean something to her <3 And the Unconventional one... well the definition is right below the word. LOL Meaning, she isn't the typical 'school girl'. ;) And, I'm trying more styles, I'm still overly new to all of this. I'm just now learning smudging, blending, lighting, shading... among other things. lol

@wolfhood - Your signature will be on it's way soon!

@anime_candy - Thank you! And I'm glad you love it so much! ^_^

Okay, now here is the waiting list!

1. Hotarubi Iga - in progress
2. 13lack Sheri
3. SullenSoul
4. wolfhood
5. Nagomumakuri
6. Neflarian

Thanks for your patience! As all my requests know, I have a busy few days (outside of requests) so it is going to take me longer than normal to finish, but I will get to all of them asap! Thank you all for your requests!

Krista Logan
05-25-2008, 03:16 PM
I ♥ this one, I like how it has that 'evil' taste in it. lol

This one, I agree that the stars didn't really match, but it looks great with the flowers. (they match the fan!!!)


This one is a little small, but I like the idea of it!

05-28-2008, 01:32 PM
Bad news! I won't be able to get online for the next few days. It will probably be Sunday or Monday until I can get you all your signatures. I will be working on them, but I will be out of town, and with family, so I won't have any internet time. Sorry for this huge delay, it's not like me at all. Normally, I'm prompt with next day service. lol

I apologize to all of you for taking so very long.

05-29-2008, 04:22 PM
okay, do people PM requests to yuki or something? '.'

13lack Sheri
05-29-2008, 05:26 PM
okay, do people PM requests to yuki or something? '.'

yeah she PMs you asking for details or vice versa

06-11-2008, 08:03 PM
Wow, it's been a while. Life got turned upside down and it's just now turning normal. Summer is always a horridly busy time for me.

I managed to get a few signatures done, and to all of those I haven't got to yet, I appologize! It never takes me this long. You all are still on my list though. ^^ Unless you have given up on me. lol

Anyway, here are the few I've done:

My contest entry

A request

A request

A request

My other contest entry. ^o^=

There were a few more, but I didn't like them so well. lol

More to come!

06-11-2008, 10:10 PM
Alright, being the person I am, I will give you some advice.

For your contest entry signature, I will use that as a basis for all your signatures because they are generally the same. First, good choice of stocks, they are ones that I have never seen used before. But you really need to work with your blending more so the stocks do not look so separate from the actual signature. The next thing, and this is very common with new signature makers, you have your text spread out all over the place. That is bad and it a lot better to keep your text nice and grouped with other text, that way it does not look like you are trying to use up more space.

Color might need a bit more work, but not much, and last is flow. Apply more style to this, and dont feel bad if you dont understand, because its the hardest part. But trying putting stuff in the signature that sort of points towards the stock in the center. Your music entry signature had this going well for you.

Anyway, that would be it, hope to see you in future contests.

06-25-2008, 02:12 PM
@ Serated: thank you so much for the help, once I figure out this whole 'flow' thing, I will make sure to use it. lol I have been trying to work on all the rest that you mentioned though. ^_^

I wanted to add a few I thought turned out pretty good. C&C welcome! :)

That was me ^_^

A request

A request ^^

Another request XD

A request that I love how it came out.

06-25-2008, 04:48 PM

This is your best tag so far. The colors are really wild, and the blending isnt too good, but a lot more style is present. My advice for improvement. Throw in things like Adjustments layer to mix match the colors to give it a nice radiant feel. The other field you should give a shot at is lighting. Try using the 'Lighting Effects' filter, the burn and doge tool, or just standard white and black brushing. You should get steadily better from there. If you need any question answered, feel free to ask me.

07-02-2008, 05:27 PM
Once again, thanks for the great advice Serated! You're a big help! I feel like such a noob, course, in actuality, I am. I've been trying what you suggest though, hopefully it shows in most of my signatures!

And here are just two signatures, because no one has been requesting! lol

SOTW #8 tied third place! We need more voters though! So when a new voting thread is up, go vote! ^___^
VOTE! (http://www.animeforum.com/forumdisplay.php?f=133) <---(link)

For my ever faithful requester, Keroppi-chan! <3

I'm open for requests! ^o^=
