Thanks for the comments guys.

@ganbaru Tweaked the cloud layer a bit. Moved it up a little thus getting rid of the black spot on it and was able to up the quality a bit as a bonus. As for the train, I was more going for a window timelapse idea but the train works just as well

@LKK I'm reluctant to make the animation slower. It's already hovering around being really jerky, tried it a little slower and it became a slideshow.

@ OceanBlue as Evil Rick said, it would need a border.
@ Periwinkle the second sig look better, and I suggest you to use JPEG insted of PNG 24
@ Haladflire65 and Cyz your latest choice of font really better.

Ah, well, it's an animated one in the end.

Hmmm... the animation looks a bit forced, it doesn't seem to have enough frames to have a realistic enough, we could help this out bu slicing the sig.

My first attempt. I don't know anything about Touhou but according to the uploader, this is Satori Komeiji?

I'm having a headache on which character to use, since I have lots of favorites.
On the other hand, what to do is the real challenge.

Correct, she's Satori Komeiji.
Spoiler for about her:

I like the pop-out aspect and the background looks okay.
Only thing is, I don't like the font that much.

PreSage As Moonie said, the font could be changed.

My 3rd try, I added the eyes's color and reworked some effects.

C&C are always welcome.

Maybe add some more color to the eyes? What you've added so far isn't very noticeable. I saw the yellow in the bg effects more than the color in the eyes.

Do you want to try to bring out some of the shadows in the render? Your signature is kind of light. If you're going for that, then never mind.

As for the border idea for mine, I played around with it for a bit [Tried the border all around and the only-horizontal border], but it doesn't seem to work with the effect I'm going for [which is a more open-flow, expansive feeling]. Thanks for the advice though.

Try adding a bit more color to the eyes, it's not really that noticeable. Also try changing the font color that you used, the "Perfect and Elegant Maid" part can't be clearly seen.

V2 is definitely better but the shading is a bit too bright for the eyes.

It looks a little bit too washed out and the white feels empty, also I think you can change the font to make it look more visible. Also, maybe bring out the eye colour more, because I can't really see anything there

Uguuu~~

Vers 1...maybe


According to MiniT she is Youmu Konpaku. Personally I just liked the outfit she's wearing.

I need some help, I have to save it as a gif for the transparency to work but Im losing tons of qual when I save it. I tried anything I could think of in IR improve the qual but nothing is working, even slicing it didnt help actually made it worse. When its in .png form size is 88kbs, in gif its only 27kbs and you can soooooo tell. Tips on how to improve this?

C&C?

@ Manju: Did you try to horizontally slice the top from the border upwards & save as a png (or maybe a gif, maybe not) with the rest from the border downwards saved as a jpg with some compression? And maybe resize the whole sig slightly smaller?

The colors go nicely with her scheme. The render is a bit blurred compared to the BG. I guess the original was that way, right? Dunno if sharpening would help here, may be worth a try.

If you really want that transparency effect, just use this forum's BG color of posts as a lot of people here already do (therefore, saving the sig in JPG format). Though some people (like me) may use the non-default blue skin, it's not really a problem; I mean, it wouldn't stop me from potentially voting your entry. Why would it stop others...



Touhou - Icey, you're a genius. Thanks for a chance to compete with a sig I've always felt very proud of.

Final Entry - Konpaku Youmu

Larthark pointed out that I had "SOTM" written as "STOM" so I fixed it

Do you think this is decent enough to be my final entry?

Well I've never played Touhou, but what the heck! I haven't done this in a long time. I'm lazy, so I might just make this the final entry



Any comments?

oooh, I'm liking what I'm seeing so far, but I wouldn't call this a final entry yet!
While the faded colors are very nice and render/text placement perfect, I have no feeling of depth. The sig is overall flat and devoid of any lighting direction.

@ White Manju Bun as others suggested, you could slice your signature, the transparent slice in PNG ant the full slice in JPEG. And if the PNG slice is too big, you can slice it in 3 slice, using gif for the empty area ant PNG for the head slice.
EDIT: my 4th try, I reworked the text and the render. C&C would be welcome.
