Well I'm happy to say that this is my second thread yay!^_^ Which means I'm actually getting somewhere with making all these tags and stuff. To start this new one off I guess I'll post my just recently completed work. It's a tag to represent my friend's pirate crew and I'm it's first mate. I couldn't find any good Zoro/Zolo renders so I ended up using Nico Robin. Well let me stop talking and show you guys the tag eh:


C&C As Always!

Its very nice. I like your style. I like the vectors in the background. It makes Robin look more flowing in the signature. The text is nice but the stroke is a little fuzzy/blurred but its okay. Its not harming the overall appearance at all. But the first mate I don't think was necessary. It looks like it was forced onto the signature. Other then that, I love it. You have great talent. Hope to see more.

09-27-2007, 07:18 PM
^-^ I like it! It's really cool~!

*smiles* I have the opposite pic i think.. different girl and all.. but...

if you want i can pm it to you...^-^

so you opened an art thread*cough* finally *cough* anyway I like the vector set the brushes are neat and you have a talent for choosing the right colours I like image positioning too but the stroke on the'black widow' text distracts a little but I love the bg and the brush colours and how it doesnt overpower the image.Overall 8/10 ^_^

I must say the sig is pretty nice looking but imho i think the vectors opacity could have been decreased so as to bring out the main image or character. As users have said before the stroke is a bit fuzzy so yeah......

the only real problem i have here is that you have a solid design concept yet you would not................... nah nevermind

10-13-2007, 12:24 AM
Thanks for the comments guys! Yeah, trying to improve with one tag at a time....and when I'm not bombarded with school work T_T

Here are two new tags that I made. One is Bautista and a Geisha tag, both simple but clean^_^; Can anyone give me tips on like what font to use for the Geisha one? The one that it has now isn't looking all that hot >.>;:



C&C Plz!

Here are some new ones....:




Oi! Here is a fan banner for all if you want to sport it too:

Cool sigs - I like the first one the most. The design turned out really well, and I like all of the vector work in the background! As for the others, I like them as well, though you could work on the lighting on the Punk sig. For the geisha sig, I would use something more flowing and curvy, because she's supposed to be beautiful and delicate. Great siggies! <3

10-15-2007, 05:06 PM
i agree with mira the cm punk one, you really could have done a bit more........ the others are ok i geuss........... the only other 1 i really like is the "grave and mira" one it's nice. and for the geisha one i think if you did a simple, less eye-catching bg you would find it easier to place some text but at the moment its a bit to inyour face, way too involved in the main image.................

Beyond The Grave
10-15-2007, 05:28 PM
Yeah I agree with the CM Punk one about the lighting, but I just couldn't get it right and once I start to try to improve one part then I start to mess with the whole thing and then it just looks like bleh >.<; The Geisha one was just trying out a tut, I agree it does look kinda off and I think I could of did better with the colors too......maybe a dash of pink and red instead of yellow and orange?

Hmm...anyway thanks for the comments Mira and Aesthetic, they will surely help me next time with lighting and colors and of course blending^_^

Here is a new vector tag that I just finished, the tut that I kinda followed was from one of our very own AF members....think their name is spelled/called S3siki? Meh, I thank them wholeheartly for the tut anyways!

I did this tag in like many different versions of color mostly keeping with the purple because I got bored and felt being random >.>; The way it originally came out is the top tag if you can't already tell when you look at them:







Anyways, C&C as always! Oi! and tell me which one looks the best to you in your opinion!

10-15-2007, 05:34 PM
wow the new sig you laid down is tight, but since i must choose, well i'll go with the first one cause i think it's stable its colour and the way the vectors stand out, but must say that the idea behind the second one is lovley but maybe different colours would done the trick.

keep it up bro :cool:

New set that I'm going to wear on some of my other sites for awhile:



It's part of a series that I'm going to start working on with sprites since I got hooked on them recently and making animations of them with sprite sheets^_^;

Tell me what you guys think of them k!

P.S. That first bit of the avie where there looks like an odd spot....is Diana's sword that was put beside her when Kula jumped into her arms >.>; Oi! and the animation might be a bit too fast aswell.....

10-20-2007, 11:42 PM
Amazing work on the animation there! Its damn adorable :3

The effects on the sprite signature is awesome! though, the BG ish a bit plain.

i like these too!
it really gives out a smokey effect.
Dunno, its just kewl. X3

Beyond The Grave
11-03-2007, 11:40 AM
Hehehe, thanks for the comments Uli^_^ Workign with a sprite sheet though can be tough >.>;

Here is my most recent work of art, it's a Manga tag of one of my most favorite manga's called Zombie Powder. Made by Tite Kubo who also made Bleach, I think this manga by far is better than Bleach but that's my opinion. Well, here is the tag all just the same:


11-03-2007, 11:43 AM
It looks a bit flat to me. It also needs better colours and less stuff going on.

It's pretty nice tho.

Here is one that's fresh from the drawing board. I love me some Terry and Iori, but today here is a tag of Terry:


C&C As Always!

Mira Kaiba
11-17-2007, 07:06 PM
The Terry sig is awesome - you have a great sense of vectors and how they work. Post more awesome sigs! XD

11-19-2007, 05:03 AM
the Terry signature is awesome!!
i love the B/g! and the effects above the extract layer is kewl! >:3
and the font is HAWT!!

11-19-2007, 08:18 AM
The other graphic was moved here: http://www.animeforum.com/showthread.php?t=66327

Please post only sigs and avas in this forum. O_o;;

Beyond The Grave
11-21-2007, 01:25 PM
Okay so I can't post all of my works in one thread....interesting -_-;

I see everyone loves the Terry tag, I didn't know my vector skills were that good but I guess that's my specialty in making tags^_^;

The font? Oh that, I thought it was a simple one that everyone used since I got it from dafont.com. If your ever wondering which one it is Uli then drop me a PM!

Okay, so I went back to working with real life pics again and so I decided to do one of Vin Diesel. Smexy man*swoons*


11-22-2007, 01:04 PM
i like to search the hundreds of pages on Dafont xD
so sure, but soon ^^ My PC is getting laggy due to my sister obsession of cute fonts.


i seriously love this signature! i like the splatter brushes you used there! tho, im not too keen on the orange C4D on his left arm...(imo) try changing the color of the light blue splatter brushes there (eg, the one right to the repeated part) maybe it'll look good as the same color as the border eh? the pattern on the b/g looks kinda nice here! and the repeats are placed nicely!

this is not really needed, but meh.
The line on the right looks good! tho, try making it coming more to the inside, to equal the blank space on the left and right side. it still looks Awesome though!

Beyond The Grave
11-22-2007, 11:32 PM
You just confused me Uli, want me to send you the PSD? I'm trying to give this thing away but I might just end up keeping it >.<;

Lol, but anyway here is my last tag for tonight, it was an outcome from a tut somewhere else:


Beyond The Grave
11-25-2007, 05:12 PM
Here's a Paine tag:


Mira Kaiba
11-25-2007, 06:05 PM
Oh, the Paine sig is pretty! The lighting on the bottom is very nice and brings out nice colors in the extract. The blending is very good also, and I like the placement of the text. Very nice! XD

The colors on the Rikuu sig are very nice, but it needs some more effects in the background, imo. The background near the extract is fine, but the rest looks sort of plain. The colors are very nice, though, and I like the sharpened look of the extract.

Very nice sigs! ^^

Beyond The Grave
11-28-2007, 12:13 AM
Rikku was a simple smudge tag that I was just making because I was bored, yeah....that sometimes happens alot lol >.>;

Thanks for the comment Mira! +rep if I can!

Here is a present for Uli, I hope it's likable since I did try to think of something original yet creative:


11-28-2007, 04:15 PM
This Vin Diesel sig is GODLY! Your style is awesome.


And the first sig (Nico Robin) looks cool. I love One Peice.

Beyond The Grave
12-10-2007, 07:17 PM
Well here is the tag of the wall that I did. The wall can be found at this link (http://www.animeforum.com/showthread.php?p=1922901#post1922901). But here is the tag of it though:


Plus it looks like I forgot to post some other tags aswell, but I thought that I did....:



Beyond The Grave
12-16-2007, 03:10 PM
So little attention to meh thread these days....Hmm...I must make more interesting styles!

lol, but anyway here is a new set that I just finished:



Beyond The Grave
03-12-2008, 08:24 AM
Well...*stretches* I think it's about time that I got back to graphic making again. Just got PS back so I'm quite happy at the moment^.^ So last night I went and did my first comeback tag, which I think I should start doing more now to get the wheels of creation back to work again. Since I'm taking a college art class for drawing I might as well sharpen both my areas of creativity again lol.

So here it is, Xiao Qiao from Dynasty Warriors 6. So sycked that it's coming out, so bummed that I can't afford it or a PS3 yet ;_;


C&C as always!

03-12-2008, 09:56 AM
Its beautifull the colors are amazing keep on going.

Beyond The Grave
03-30-2008, 08:21 PM
Finally I can post something new! I can only do PS during weekends and times when I don't have school work soo....expect slow updates^.^;

Here is an Iori sprite tag and a new set. The set is an outcome from Uli's tut and that's Uli's sprite too that I used, so yeah.....:



C&C as you like!

03-31-2008, 03:55 AM
Well here is the tag of the wall that I did. The wall can be found at this link (http://www.animeforum.com/showthread.php?p=1922901#post1922901). But here is the tag of it though:


Plus it looks like I forgot to post some other tags aswell, but I thought that I did....:


So hawt =X
especially the demon one. i LOVE these types of smudging! I an never get the settings the way i want to though. and the one above it is very abstrackty~ nicely made and the colors just work :3

Very nice outcome on the Sugintou signature!!

Beyond The Grave
04-06-2008, 04:52 PM
Hmm....I'm going to have to get back to you on that one Uli when I get on my other laptop and find the name of it^.^;

Oi! But here are two BRAND NEW ones, just made them today. The first one I'm not so proud of but I love the dark feel of it. The second one I LOVE and was of course a gift to a friend because they love Leon lol.

Here are meh tags:


04-06-2008, 06:34 PM
Wow, a lot of this stuff seems just so unreal to me. They are so well done and appear completely out of my range of ability to do. Nice job.

Beyond The Grave
04-07-2008, 12:48 AM
Lol, some are easier than they look Serated, but thank you for the comment...I feel so awesome right about now and sleepy^.^

Here is my last one for the night:


Gift to a friend as they requested, so they better like it -.-

04-07-2008, 09:55 AM
I like the outcome of the darkness is light sig. isn't that from Unli's tutorial?

Beyond The Grave
04-07-2008, 06:22 PM
Yeah that outcome is from Uli's tut, came out quite nicely too. Lol besides that one I've become attached to my last three aswell because they look so cleanly done lol^_^

04-09-2008, 12:17 PM
I am seriously LOVING the Leon Tag! =DD
Very-very well done, this messy is well arranged! (makes sense?)

Beyond The Grave
04-18-2008, 12:58 AM
Uli it makes perfect sense ^.^

Now here is a new tag
I wanted to try out, just couldn't find the right stock until my friend gave me a bunch of stocks by this one girl and I was like "SCORE!!"

Lol, here is the outcome:



04-18-2008, 05:56 AM
I love your sigs. They are so vibrant and colorful and the main images come out well. I love the backgrounds too. Awesome. Maybe I will have to ask for tips lol.

Beyond The Grave
04-19-2008, 08:49 PM
Whenever I have the time then maybe I could help you out, it's nice to help others once in awhile with graphics and to give tips^.^;

Well here is something out of my daily regiment. A large tag...that I'm not to really proud of because I didn't get the end result that I wanted out of it but meh, I guess it's alright.

Here's the outcome:



Oh and here's the thing about this one. Any of the artists on here that I know want to maybe add on to this one can, I'll send you the PSD of it in a PM. All others that I don't know(you know who you are) well.....it's going to cost you because well....I don't take too kindly to rippers-.-

Beyond The Grave
04-27-2008, 02:34 AM
*sigh* Yet again my thread gets bumped back to the second page.....what a shame. This only makes me want to make tags more often! Damn school and it work of evil.....it stops me from doing my favorite past-time!

Anyway, here is a new tag fresh out of Photoshop. This is a gift to Uli that I'm giving him Wearing Rights to, so I hope he likes it >.>; Here is the tag in all of it's glory:


I am so loving my friend for the folder of pics that she gave me, they are just godly! Plus the pics are helping me improve my skills^.^;

so, C&C as you plz!

04-27-2008, 03:56 AM

HAHA! I get to wear something that awesome! xDD I bet they're all jealous X3

I like the patterns at the top there, looks kinda grungy imo =D

Thanks once again ^^

Beyond The Grave
05-29-2008, 07:13 AM
Doing a much needed update.

After tests I should be getting back to graphics full time, for about 2 weeks....and then I have a week of camp so bear with me ^.^;

Anyway, you all know I'm a Dynasty Warriors fan so.....here is Shang Xiang. Oh and by the way check out the new character layouts of the new game, half of them are smexy^.^


05-29-2008, 07:19 AM
I love the effects on the hollow star brush *_*
and the cutout-colors really works well in the piece.
The red is kinda bland >.>;; gradient it?

05-29-2008, 01:29 PM

Pretty awesome sigs there.
BUT this one has to be one of my faves.
I really like this one becauuse I always wanted
to do some of my sigs notebook style. And aswell
Red and black makes perfect sense and a light brown colour
does make it stand out ^.^

Beyond The Grave
05-31-2008, 11:14 AM
Okay Uli, I took your advice and gradient the bg. The stars reminded me of the sky last minute so....:


Oh and IchigoKiss, I'm glad that you like that one. It seems the ones I made of that same girl have been getting alot of praise and like.....which in turn I gifted them to two of my good friends, as you can see, Uli gloated about his gift lol.

05-31-2008, 12:54 PM
Looks a little plain but still pretty good. I like the coloring.

Beyond The Grave
06-01-2008, 10:21 PM
One plain tag deserves to have a flashy counterpart I say then. So in that case I dedicate this tag to my friend at GL, only they know the true meaning of this tag lol:

Beyond The Grave
06-13-2008, 06:24 PM
Made these two during the SOTW when it was music theme. But alas, the one I put in was DQ for not having animegalleries.net on it -_-;

Psh, anyway here are the tags. One I entered for another contest somewhere else that the poll has finished yet so I hope that I win or something with an awesome tag will:



06-13-2008, 07:30 PM

I like this one, but the text is really hard to read. Actually, I didn't notice it for a minute.

Your current one is really great! It's all shiny looking..... :)

06-14-2008, 01:04 AM

I am loving the background and the colors work really well! Very nice usage of brushes too, I never really know how to use those types efficiently AND make it look solid. The pattern and lighting really worked too. Really like the graffiti style here ^_^

The visible smoothness of erasing was found. O___o;;

Rawr, awesome work yo!

Beyond The Grave
07-16-2008, 12:59 AM
I should of updated this thing AGES ago! >.> But well, better late than never I suppose.

Anyway, even after this update I have one more signature to show.....but I have to show it after I enter it as an entry because it's suppose to be a surprise for another sig competition, but trust me, it shall be worth the wait when I show it because it's also a style I made out of my without a tut yay!^.^;

Oh and by the way so are these style of tags too of course:





Didn't show the black and white versions, didn't think you would want to see them without color >.>;

Memento Mori
07-16-2008, 02:38 AM
PSSSHT. All of you original great sig makers apparently have competition.

The only thing I find troubling in most of your sigs in the choice of text. The font, to be specific. Not all of them, just some it doesn't flow together well.

I'm a terrible sig maker. <_<;

Beyond The Grave
07-16-2008, 04:14 AM
I get a huge FAIL when it comes to text, that's why I like me tags textless now^.^;

But I do hope to get better at it soon though, or you all shall be interpreting what the tags mean for a llloonnnggg time with no text >.>;

Lol, but thanks for the comment Mori! It really brighten up my day....which will come after I go to sleep now >.>;

07-16-2008, 06:58 AM
I kinda knew that was you xD (half lie)
I like the second one btw =DD *prods* too much fun with the after effects imo >_>

Very sexy nonetheless! Thanks for the signature btw ;DD
Come a bit oftener, all the sigmakers here loves competition!

Jagan Eye
07-16-2008, 01:23 PM

I really like this sig. It looks like an ancient-wall drawing signature which is totally awesome. And the text is perfect. I like how you did the background as well. Its really cool. Good job.

Beyond The Grave
07-16-2008, 01:59 PM

Lol, usually someone can tell when I pop up for an SOTM for some reason, I just don't know why*winks*

I just wanted to get a feel for those 8 stocks so I mess around with them, I'm making a tut on how to do those tags so I had to remember what I did without having to scratch my head in frustration ><

But I'll try not to ***** my images next time k?

Jagan Eye:

Thank you^.^ Actually the textures were put on after I did the effects, it was to create natural lighting and what not easier. I was aiming for an ancient type drawing so that's a plus w00t!

By the way, they're in their order of completion fyi, that's if any of you are wondering.

Oh and your Welcome Unli, I couldn't think of anyone else to gift. That's makes it 3 from me that you have now I think >.> I'm gifting you wwaayyy too much lol^.^;

08-26-2008, 08:51 PM

I like these two particularly.
The first one for being so darn creative.
But it seems very random in the colors, even though I see a clear rainbow kind theme...
But it's very nice nonetheless.

The second one here is just AMAZING.
Although I think you could have added something there.
But that's just me personally.

Amazing update.
Keep it up and I wanna see MOAR.

09-01-2008, 11:53 AM

I especially liked the 5th for epic realism xD

All above all, I love them! The Code Geass tag you made gave me a new idea; thanks for that :3

Beyond The Grave
10-22-2008, 03:42 PM
Lol, thanks for the comments guys!

It's getting harder and harder for me to update sadly, college and such leaves NO time for me to get rolling on photoshop like I use to and post sigs....it's a shame T_T

But here are a few that either i'm still working on or I'm finished. Some I like to add more on to but meh, can't think of what to add >.<

Uber-hawt. I love the flow on this one. Great vintage colors. The circle on the left fits perfectly with the rest of the flow. I can't get over the colors! ^^


Loverly. ^^ Simplicity of the left side is perfect. Loving the character outlines behind the character - great splatter and color usage. ^^

Fabulous coloring on all of your sigs - good use of space in the sigs. These two in particular look perfect without text to me.

10-23-2008, 10:22 PM
Welcome back

Wahh, lovely C4D usage *_* Kanji text goes a bit unnoticable but good otherwise. Vintage color is way cool, green, dark red, orange and black goes well together

BTW, Museum Tag is so crapping creative xD

You know you've been on here for a long time when you can't remember how many of your art threads have been closed, either that, or your just too lazy to go and check lol

But anyway, you couldn't imagine the frustration I went through trying to find my art thread and then finally finding it only to find out it has been close -.-

Let's look on the bright side though, I'm so good that I had to make another one all over again yay! No really, I type these long things in my first post and others because I can and I LOVE to rant hehehe >=)

Well you guys haven't seen an update from me in AGES, so I guess now is a good time as any to let you see some of the stuff I've been up to:


Yes, that's right, Gamma is my husband because I love his manga so much.....shame that Tubo Kite never finished it ;_;

Oh and I have a logo now! So like.....check the ones that are my currents ones now because you know their going to change time I get inspiration to do so lol:

12-23-2008, 02:21 AM
Freaking awesome signatures and inspiration source. XD I seriously love them all. <3
Did you color the last two ones yourself? Looks pretty neat.

Beyond The Grave
12-23-2008, 02:29 AM
Yep, and it was a pain to get Gamma's hair right too >.<; Then I forgot that I could color the big image first and then resize it....so I colored them while they were small except the one with the red background lol.

Thanks for the comment though, the inspiration for them all came and went since I did try not to read tutorials for over half of these. Wait.....top 4 I read tuts and the bottom 4 I didn't......that's the order yeah!

Here's something to start off with, just something random I made as I'm getting back into PS and trying to learn Illy on the side.


I love to cherish and read good C&C kiddies!

Fantastic! I really love the way you cropped the image different times and added them into the backround. Gives it a very unique and pretty look. And the avis are adorable~ <33

Kagamines rule, I'm so glad I found someone who's as Super Scary Obsessed In Love with them as I am. ^^ And did I mention I'm getting chibi figurines of them soon?

BUT I DIGRESS. You are love, and so's the set~!

What?! I envy that you get chibis ;_; Post images when you get the time!

Okay, now I've got some icons to post.....since you can't have a set without having an avie so....I had to brush up on my avi game ^.^

Here they go


NO! You can not use these....but you can request one if you like! But, I'm curious to see if anyone can name the movie they're from hehehe

The second avie is such a dead giveaway too

nice work and good color combination and the flow of it is great

omg! <33333333 BLADE TRINITY!
The icons/avatars capture the pure coolness of the characters totally :3

Maybe on the Hannibal King avi, make the text a little clearer? Atm it's a bit hard to read, but I like them all. They've got content and they don't look plain. Also, I love the Blade films... especially trinity... because it has King in it :3

I was debating weither or not to put text on that one. Does it look better with no text? Hm, since you did guess what movie.....I'll cave in and make you a BT icon if you like Dynamite^.^

Now, on to my current pressing issue....what is this tag missing?!:


I know it looks cool like that but....it looks so plain to me! ;_;

Atleast you thought so Kmac^.^; I liked that version too.....but just in case here is another one. Some friends on my other forum said that would like to see some of the sword and the swordsman that's holding it lol

So here is their needs satisfied:


How you like this version with dem apples^.^

Oh, and I almost forgot, here is Hannibal King without the little ring flare thingies and the one without the text:

Because I need to work on my people more and my buddy gave me a pic..........

Interesting use of image. It really is just an overall strange composition. I would only suggest as a change trying to clean up the overall result a little more and removing the white lines going around the guy. They seem a bit unnecessary.

Hm, will do Serated. I didn't know what looked good for the overrall pic so I just went with something. Was going out of my comfort zone from anime characters again lol^_^;

So, here's an update with two new signatures that I've been burning on. One was an entry in the SOTW and the other was just something I wanted to make with a render I wanted to mess with:

Three New Signatures from over the months:


Credit goes to Serated for the Render in the last signature :)

First one is great just make the border a lot smaller because it's huge on it. O_O The second and third one looks so similar and bland to me, their so empty and looks so similar but I llike your other sigs.:3

Thanks for the comments and advice Teto!

Hm, here is the signature that got 3rd place in the SOTW 52. I'll show the avatar that goes with it too:

Nice to see you using your SoTW 52 tag. :'D

I would have had my vote swing your way but my overall criticism of the tag was it seems too simple. And the text isn't the best I've seen. Not sure that C4D (if not it looks like it) that spans from her neck to to the mid right side is needed at all.

That being said, the colours and the flower effects are executed amazingly well, I THINK you've used a pale blue and light yellow gradient map to pull out some colours but hey whatever you did worked. Everythings placed where it should be picture wise. So good job keep it up!

Hm, I've been trying to see if simple worked for my style for awhile now....guess it doesn't? I didn't want it to look TOO busy. Ah, I had the hardest time choosing a text for it....and it STILL didn't come out right; I'm wondering if no text at all will work. Oh it's a C4D (someone noticed it finally hahahaha) and you're probably right on that too....I just threw it in there to give it some light.

The flowers are from the render itself before I resized it to use as the main focal and it came out pretty neat! Gradient colors? You were REALLY close but I used a pale purple (light lavender) and light yellow gradient from the flower colors lol.

That being said.....let me post another signature for today ^_^:
