ok these are the sigs that i have made for other people or for myself. im still a beginner so feel free to tell me what i can do to make them better. the weird thing about my sigs are i dont use photoshop. i use MS paint to make alot of my renders and then i transfer them to Photo explosion where i make them all pretty. i dont make all of my renders but quiete a few of them are my own, and i do take requests. so pm me if you want me to make a sig. so here are my sigs so far.











yep here they are so feel free to chritique and all that jazz. lemme know what you think! thanks!

I like them, The color could use some work on a few though. But they are very good.

07-26-2007, 12:24 PM
teehee, yeppers. Pm me if you ever want me to make ya a sig
(that was in reply to dengaku)

Witch ones were they that needed help on color?

thanks so much nespa!!! being complemented on my sigs, by the mighty sig maker, what an honor. *calms back down* im ok now! thanks for all the suggestions

07-26-2007, 12:38 PM
The only advice I can think of is to maybe make a border, and make the text stand out a little more. ^^

07-26-2007, 12:40 PM
alrighty. thanks for the suggestions

i cant see sum of them...but no problem.the ones i see more than make up for it.^^

my favourite's the genjo one.very cute and i like how the simplistic design and bright colors u used made it even more adorable.^^

ok, criticism time.uhm...id have to say that in some of the sigs, the font u used dont really match well with the bg and everything or sometimes u cant reali read it that well.u can maybe slightly change the color u use for the font from the bg colors in the sig so they dont blend.^^'

and what dengaku says is true, a border would really go a long way to making ur sigs even better.i learned that just a few days ago.haha.^^

other than that, i see no other problems wid ur sig.keep posting sum new stuff!XD

08-31-2007, 11:51 AM
lol thanks, ive been going around looking at my program and im not sure if i can use borders for it but i can check again. ^^

here are some more sigs, lemme know what cha think!










i think im getting better, but what do you think?

08-31-2007, 01:10 PM
if ur program doesnt have that option u culd always do it urself.use the create rectangle tool or line tool or polygon tool and just enclose the sig wid it.make sure they're all even and no one would be the wiser.^^

again,nice work.i like the bg for the etna one.^^ there's still that font issue thing, but i think that's just me.^^ u can also try messing wid the raw pics u use for the sigs to make them brighter and stand out more in the final version.

anyway,keep up the good work.XD

08-31-2007, 01:31 PM
yeah the fonts are a lil interesting i havent really noticed it until someone really pointed it out. but yeah

ok these are my failed attempts at what i like to call art with my new PDN, PS, and Microsoft Paint. Be gentle with critisism. Tell me what you think and what i could do better. Thanks guys.!.

its Bou, the GUY who used to be in an cafe. Made for Twilight Dreams cuz she made me a siggy.

i think im probobly gunna come back to this one, and give it to my friend.

Gloomy bear!!!!

emo thing.

for my friend yuuki.

for my friend echo.

these are my failed attempts at art, rate and critisize em.
tell me witch ones you love or hate.
i now take requests, so if you pm me im willing to make sigs for anyone.

Holeh crap, my past just tackled me. @_@

But anyway, on to the sigs. I can see you've improved since the last time you posted, and that's always an awesome thing. But, uhm, there's this one thing that bothers me about your friend Yuuki's sig. It kinda looks like you just added text on an already made sig. Not that I'm saying you can't make something that well, I'm just saying that it's a little too good in comparison to the others. ^^'

i got help on that one, my buddy was being sweet and helped me i guess i should have said that he had helped me, lol. >.<

Just something I learned from a friend of mine who makes LiveJournal icons, save your images as PNG or GIF quality instead of JPEG. The result is a clearer, less fuzzy image.

It really only makes a difference if you edit the original photo though. Pics of your digicam dont really need the tag switch unless you edit them in photoshop or some other image editing program.

Hope this helped. :p

Your doing a great job Serenity =D
You try GIMP yet like I suggested?
Oh and to get more fonts try Dafont It has loads.

You should try blending and stuff, make them cooler!

Holeh crap, my past just tackled me. @_@

I know xDDDD I was shocked to see that earlier
Ohh, how much have you matured >:3

This being awesomest
but as Kuro said....
unfortunately >_____>
Emo and Echo thing says the same too D:

like i said i got help with the one for yuuki, and then i did the other ones that looks too good to be true on my own, i just kinda needed someone to show me how to do things a bit easier and better, to give me that extra oompha that i needed =)

ok new one. this one i think looks mega crappy witch is what i expected from my first vertical sig, so yeah...i think its much harder to make a vertical sig rather then horizontal one. just my opinion. what do you guys think on that general subject there?

anyways my crappy vertical crap crapo crappy thing thats not even worth being called a sig.
