I was trying to change my name to Sephi there to but it was registered already.

And don't worry about the C4d bigdave, you have come a long way from the days that you made your sig with Paint to your current results.

Here is the request thread for signatures. There's also one for avatars. There both stickied at the top.


So your post belongs in that thread, unless you specifically want me to make a signature with one of my styles. If that is the case i would need a bit more info regarding which style you prefer and what text as i don't know the anime myself and it's hard to give the sig the right feel that way.


Totally forgot about my latest sig Eri Sawachika. School Rumble also holds a special place in my Anime list. And Eri is just

Got some time the next couple of days so hopefully i get the chance to try some new styles. Still hoping to make a batch of Shuffle sigs. But still can't get any ideas for it. Brush or c4d just doesn't seem the right style for it. But perhaps i should give Brushes a try.

Thanks for everyone comment

well well, i will simply say : nice blending skills here


this signature cought my interest : i'm not really fond of the fonts of the texts, but else, the mood, contrast etc are quite a big hit. ^__^
Luckt Star BG and elements are nicely done, they look like genuine

except eri sig, i'm not really fond of the us eof C4D in your style in fact : they look rather random and not really fitting the chars.

meh, critic aside, i don't really see which skills you have to work hard on, considering the good work here

You couldn't be more right about the randomness of my C4d sigs. I just made the c4d background and than looked for a render to slap on... Since my coloring skills is so awful, i couldn't really get the c4d render to match the render. Even the Eri sig was made at such a way Though the color does represent her in someway, except the green.

Ay, i know. I asked already, but the name was in use. Even though the person never made a post since being a member But i'll just keep my name there.

Latest

Got tired of C4d and meh.. doesn't seem the right style for shuffle anyway. So finally started with my first shuffle sig. Inspired by some of Klashikari work. As i never use more than 2 renders in 1 sig. Nor do i do small img in sig's often. The middle top felt empty, so i slapped arrows there. And mmm i had a hard time getting the color intensity out. The colors still feel to plain to me. And the eternal problem of fonts and what to do with that, and which font to use... Somehow the sig feels to crowded to :/

Wonder if i should make more sig of shuffle in this style of try a different style again.

Critics and comments are welcome about how i can improve the sig.

PS... i found out i typed GallEry wrong aaah now it says GallAry on fan section. I even made the same mistake making the banner for my gallery. And i forgot and typed gallAry when making the title. Seems it can't be changed anymore either T.T nOES

Only Mods can edit threads' titles. I did that for you

As for your creations, I have to say they're very good. If I had to make a top three:

1. Love the blending

2. Great background, choice of picture and fonts.

3. Massively cute character ^^

But I also like that of Saber. As for avatars:

Again this girl is too cute. What's the source?

Really soothing

Thanks for editing my thread title. I'm quite thick headed sometimes and just can't get the words right.

As for the Iriya no sora, noes. The pic was crop and scale. But i added the finishing touches to it. Can't really take credits for it beside for my text and the lines and stuff. And the magical sparkling thingies....

as for the source of the Chibi Arf pics. It's indeed from Magical Girl Nanoha (aS)
Here are the stock's. All the pictures came from the Magica Girl Nanoha Image thread
Spoiler for kawaiiness overkill:


2 new more shuffle signatures.

Spoiler for named version:

Was messing around a bit. I really wanted to add Primula to it to. But there was no space left for it. Probably gone redo one with 5 girls in it and add Primula. Size will probably be around 500x100 and 90px for each circle for a girl.
Wonder which version is better. With or without name?

Kaeda signature

Bit hard to read the quote. But mmm couldn't find a smaller font that looks sharper than what i used for the quote of her. And somehow the middle feels a bit to empty.

Also made 2 Avatars.

Optimized for Animesuki use the background color has been changed to that part of the forum. If i left it empty the drop shadow looked weird.


Saw a pic with the 6 girls of em, so decided to turn it in to a avatar.

i see you have combined some idea from me and capture, not bad choice for shuffle ^^"

as for kaede, yes, i felt the same way : the center is a bit empty : the shuffle logo has too much "placeholder" vibes.
be careful with the photograph : some edges are a bit jagged, and you also should be cautious with the shadows : since every photograph has a shadow, they don't look like they are pilled up, but rather floating above each other.

Left kaede isn't really blend smoothely, thus the edge seem a bit too sharp (while primula sig didn't have that problem).
finally, not really too sure about the text "i love you so, please don't love me" fit the mood here, along with the fonts for both lines.

meh asides of these little points, neat looking sig

Woa very attentive of you I didn't thought anyone would notice the slightly jagged edges.

Unfortunately i don't have a solution to fix the jagged edges. I tried a bit. But without much good results. I start with just a square and paste the pic in to it. Than i rotate it. Unfortunately during the rotate the edges become jagged. I don't have a other solution except for instantly make the square at the right place. But mmm i don't think i'm capable of drawing a perfect square with the lasso tool.

tried to fix the shadow. Well i think i sorta fixed it. Just mmmm it should be the right way now the floating effect is gone i think. Did left a small shadow though. It would of look odd otherwise.

Also gave Kaeda a 1 px feather. And played a bit with the levels to make her fit better with the background. And changed the quote. But meh... couldn't do much with the Shuffle logo ^^ Well i moved it down.. and feathered it out

Well this is version 2 of Kaeda.


Old one for easier comparison


The more i look at it the more jagged the edges become Just like my dead pixels on my laptop screen

Thanks for the criticism

This is a great siggy, IMO. The jagged edges are pretty hard to notice, so it's pretty much as if they are not there to begin with.

Good work!

Ay, i really like the outcome of the Kaeda version to. I might make one of Asa to and hope i can fix the slightly jagged photo edges. Though i'm hoping to make it different than the Kaeda version.

In the meantime i made one of Kagami in same style as my other Lucky Star sig since it's a fairly easy style to do. Will be putting this one up as freebie in the Lucky Star forum soon. Unless someone claims it here.
If you want the quote changed, just say so. I couldn't really find a good quote to put there...

Spoiler for 430x120 version:

Might make more of them if people are interesting in seeing a complete set in the same style. But meh, in the mean time i'll just try make a new Shuffle sig with Asa/Sia/Nerine.

Nice vector job you did on the Kagami sig. I would suggest feathering the left render 1px because her edges are a bit too sharp and placing a very very light drop shadow to give her some depth. As for the render on the right, I would go with maybe a 15% opacity and distance of 2-3 drop shadow. Either than that, this sig is ace.

The left Kagami is actually feathered out by 1 already. But i just did it again for smoother edges. Did the drop shadow on the right Kagami. But i left out the drop shadow on the left Kagami since it looked a bit weird.

Thanks for your comment m8.

Well, heres a Asa signature.

The green for the background was a pain to choose... And something seems missing at the left of the hello arrow. And meh, should i make a Sia one, it will have round edges...

Also animated it... But it turned out pretty ugly and silly
Spoiler for lol...:


Criticism and comments are welcome.

Thanks. Really like the outcome of that sig. But thought it was a bit silly to use it after readin the info from some site i googled up. But guess its ok



Sia signature. Making the wave like things at top and bottom was a pain. Been awhile since i played with pen tool and anchor points. And in the end i ran out of ideas and smacked arrows at left. But since that looked like a placeholder... I decided to smack that square with Sia name in Japanese there. Though it still looks like a placeholder...

The color was a pain to. Almost as hard as choosing Asa colors. Well, since i came this far already one last of Nerine will come to.
