Ahelo Sigs

Well its time for me to finally open up my own thread in FC.


I'm pretty sure I'm a beginner. I only started PS 3-4 months ago so I'm sure you'll find my sigs a bit rough in some parts, but I did work hard on them so. . . please be kind I guess (though I definitely appreciate C & C).

The banners I made for AnimeSuki.

Spoiler for Animesuki Banners:



I also made three sigs to start my thread off:
Spoiler for First legion of sigs:


Spoiler for After 4 months!:



I guess if you think I'm good enough for you I can make a signature for you. Just PM me and send me the image you want me to turn into a signature and I'd be honored to make one.

So for now

I sorta make some random shapes using Illustrator (also not much of a pro). Then I copypasta it to PS though its really a pain in the buttocks since you can't change the shapes once you put it on PS. So I really make it a point to adjust everything already in Illustrator before putting it in PS.

The butterflies on Sawako though are brushes

Just a tip, when putting a render at the sig, try just not put the head.
And since you're new try varienting styles, and reading tutos, i really recomend smudging for the beggining since it is a very easy basic techinique
But Good Luck for your galery,and welcome to FC ~

A signature with not just the head .
@Reverzer0: I'll try my best to make it more stylish .
@Bilia: Thanks for pointing out that I'm just using heads ). I'll try to vary my sigs from time to time.

Welcome to the FC subforum!

Your sigs are very nice considering how new you are to everything! You have an interesting style, but in order to develop it more, try varying the width and length of the rectangles more (like in your most recent one but even more), and also try experimenting with clipping masks and other shapes/tilting the rectangles. Also, make sure to work on those fundamentals (lighting, flow, typography, focus, depth, etc.) Here's a tut I found very helpful. And keep experimenting and practicing!

Oh btw, have some cookies!

Your sigs looks great already. I haven't seen a Sawako sig in a while.
I'll be looking forward to your progress.

@ Renrir
Thanks for the tutorial link, I'm trying to learn some stuff from it right now.

@ Endless Soul
Sawako is a perfect girl for sig-making. Plus she's totally one of my favorite female characters.

Was wondering who made the Yune autumn sig. Very nicely done. I also liked your Sawako sig btw.

Keep up the good work!

Tried something different, though I'm personally not liking the pink hair I made for Kurisu. I'll try to vary things more later when I actually have time to concentrate.

I'm so late but Welcome to FC! *cookies!*

You have a very interesting style here - very unique and a great start to sig making.

I really like these two sigs you made:




Love the colours and shapes you applied in them. My only suggestion is you should add some lighting to your sigs. This will give them greater depth and bring out certain elements in your image to catch the eye even more. Overall, though, very lovely. I look forward to seeing more from you.
