I mean okay, if you're a boring person and think very simply then I suppose it's permissible. It's better to experiment and fail than dig yourself into a niche market and succeed. At least in my opinion it is, and that is what all my ratings are, opinions. You don't like them? You don't have to! All I ask is that you respect my pseudo-right to express 'em.
first, I do respect your opinion and your right to express it otherwise I wouldn't bother to talk to you or about what you said...

Second, to answer some of your questions, I make my signatures so than it fit my tastes, more than in the purpose to impress others. Do I try to stand out; no, but lets see some fact; now , I am doing/using signatures in serie , quoting full text of songs or poetry, either in english, french or japanese... before that I passed a whole year with different signature each week , all based on a little serie of light novel, almost abscent of this forum ( you can look on my thread to see by yourself... ) . Do I want to experiment, do somethin different; of course but there's 2 thing than will always reduce my possibility to do so: I use PhotoShop Element ( which have less tool thanthe full PhotoShop ) and the necessity of making the text readable. At the end, I try to improve and to do news things but there's limit.

Third, one Patchy's defence, one thing than make them less stand out is the quantity of them on this forum. The more signature of him than he see, the less ovelty they have, but it's the case of everyone of us's signatures. Can he do something different, yes but that's isn't what those than request him signature want. One example:
Spoiler for the example:

That's Patchy's work and yet...

>.< Didn't knew that the discussion here were part about my style, only thought that this thread will be a RTS sig... ok.. here's what I said...

Some pointers I'm using on my signatures and I think the others.

* First the characters involved, "Don't you want anything you work on to be an expression of yourself?" (quoted)..

> First of all I think mostly designers here are already expressing how they felt for a certain character/series involved, do you know how? even though there's what you called similarity in style, you cant changed the fact that the artists who made it liked his/her works positively good or negatively bad/ similar effects or not... thats how they express themselves.... I think..

Look at Halad-sempai style, just liked you said mostly all of them are similar but when you look closely some of them were fractal, some of them were smudge, some of them were splat, some of them were combination.

* style? yup Im sure I mostly have the same style, but that doesnt mean I can't change (I think that's also the feeling of other artists here when they became comfortable on their respective style... this time see ganbaru-sempai, she can change from the usual monochromatic style to the current colorful style she have...)

Me? (I'm not boasting) but if my works wouldnt stand out I can proudly said why does my inbox always have a request messages?

TBH it's the eyes of the viewer/requester (as in your opinion that like you who couldn't liked my works... there are still some people who liked our works even still as they can see repeatedly have the same style over and over again...) if he/she could say that even though this person does have the same style you can't argue that it's good and pleasant in the eyes, or it is about the artist's style himself, as long as it looks pleasant in his/her eyes..(I have seen many graphic artists on grafx forum with the same style [c4d] all over and over again... but I cant deny the fact that even though they're the same style, they're really really good and jaw dropping...

Are these the same?





They're all my works but yeah they've the same pattern in most of it but you think they've the same outcome?... mostly I used dusts glow but that's what you called my trademark or what you should called comfortable place or sometimes using the same pattern for fixing some bad parts at them... Many people can change from the usual plain to techno to vectors to etc. styles if they wanted to... it's just they dont liked to leave it as long as they were pleasant to the artists and to some people who are praising they're style.... so I have my gratitude towards other people who were praising us despite the similarity, they can said its still a good work ^^..

and for those people who were praising us even though they're looks like repeated/recycled stuffs...

I think you're still lacking something in terms of gfx designing if you can say that most of the style that were using are the same, at first I'm kinda what you called "annoyed/irritated or something liked that, but now it doesn't affect me anymore, since not to be rude but rated by someone who lacks experience in seeing/making/determining/pointing what style some signatures or how they've been made...., that doesnt affect me at all even you'll rated my works -100/10 ^^... just my 2 cents here...

and oh of course...

Have a nice day ^^...

Rating: Halad-sempai.... 4/5 [still on the mount of having that Masha fever, XD]


*goes back to my usual routine*

Aah~ I thought the consensus was to move this 'discussion' to pm's/comments rather than in the thread. This is just begging for a mod-cleanup. =.=

Drake: Simple and effective as always. Chicks and guns are always a winning combo. 8.5/10

Each artist develops a certain style, its bound to happen, its also something that defines him, they make totally different pieces but you can always know who is it from just by looking at it, which i think its a good thing, it gives a certain personality to the line of work, i for one like Patchy's work, sure all have the same feel to them but each is different.

@JRendell: this disscussion although started by the same one is a bit different... anyway 8.6/10 a few small artifacts but nice looking.
Drake: nice 9.3/10.
OgodItsKanon: 9/10
CMHerrera: don't take this the wrong way (or as an insult) but for some reason Aizen creeps me up in your sig , still the quality is good and i like the color combination so 9.5/10.

Your signature is WAY too big for the forum .. See rules. Hell, it should even show a box where your signature must fit inside when you are choosing a signature ... + Bad quality, awful rainbow borders and weird text. 3/10

@Dist 7/8/7/9 so around 8 overall
nice placement for your render. I like the light source and the color it is.
I like what you did with the bg, but it would look even nicer with more depth and atmosphere.

@delirium
6/7/6/7/ so around 6.5
I like that you made unit1 all black cuz with that red the purple would have clashed. I like the eyes and bg being same in color. Good job with it. Bg could use a little more work. In which i mean try making something using different sources of pictures and such.

bigdave: 9/10 nice, though wings appear to be to disproportional, one's a lot wider then the other and its not just cause of the angle, also could use imho a subtle border.

bigdave: 8/10 I really like the colors in your signature. They mesh well and I like the atmosphere of it.

As far as my signature is concerned, you are right. I could probably put something else in with the background, but I liked how it was at that point so that's what I used. Thank you for the suggestions. They are actually very much so appreciated.

JRendell 8,7/10 interesting focus
OgodItsKanon 9/10 simply great
delirium 8,4/10 adding more render, especialy if not ''working with each other'', disperse the focus of the sig
