Hmm.. I think the last purple version is the best.. :D
BTW did you mispel your name.. I read K I N Z (look more like 2) A (looks more like 1)
It looks better on her sholder.. IMO.. especially with the new design..

I can see it.. but I doubt anybody that doesn't know will read "A" it's really tryky to make out.. BTW is that the same font as before.. (looks like it)
When it's on the sholder it's good..

I think the problem is that there's a tiny stoke there that mixes too well with the font..

owh what happened to the writing around saber? >.< it was one of the good aspects about the original!

the light blue bar across the top seems "out of it"...it doesnt really fit as the sudden change from blue to black or visa versa...how bout just leaving the bar transparent? i think that would make it look better and unique instead of having her confined into a rectangular shape...

dont cut off your name so much...move it left and up abit to fill the "emptiness" of the top right side...
i like the cloudy font for the other text but its hard to read...sharpen/enlarge a little?

besides that i think its perfect! D

the good

the bad
:- Lower opac on mid saber didnt work for the overall look
:- So is the no fate is eternal
The whole sig stands on crisp/sharp BG .. to have soft stuff around just @_@ IMO

:- There's a blue border at top as stated by Deathkillz.. but its kinda gone if i tilt my monitor .. or look from different angle @_@
:- Nudge your name a bit to left... right now its BC12 ^__^

+ some, - some = a bit better overall, if only for the fake transparency is no longer there

I kinda got lazy yesterday to play with PS yesterday.. tho I did 1 sig request for Shay from the workshop .. dunno if I should post it here.. its just some filter work ^^ .. no brushing whatsoever involves.

That's because IE can't handle the transparency of PNG correctly. ^^

Erm... don't mind me... you guys didn't see me, I wasn't here!
/runs before my sig gets butchered.

Haha.. the unwritten rule of this thread is that we don't butcher what you don't place on the table i.e. you would have to ask us to butcher it..

I personally don't think its polite to critic something if the person doesn't ask for it anyway.. ^__^
I mean it's their hard work...... a little respect..

But but but .. the OP said if its Riker.. then just fires away =x

Jyodan dayo ^^

Anyway,

I kinda like the style in this 1 .. I've reposition my name ..again

Also, I wanted to use this 1, but was afraid of Ojiisan honestly
Still using the same style in my Bala sig above ... Brushing is limited to a minimum, so the sig are not too empty.. My name is there.. just as trademark signature .. but its a bit obscure.. Whats the opinion?

Oh hell.. my sig quote is obsulete ... I'll just risk the sig then

Actually, if you ppl want to critique I won't mind.


I have a question btw...

This is the fake transparency version:




This is the true transparency version:




If you zoom in, you can see the blue gradient is much smoother in the 1st sig. Is this somehow a side effect of using fake transparency or is it because I tinkered with the optimisation settings and forgot what I did? Because no matter how I change the settings of the 2nd sig I can't get the gradient to look the same.

Use waited optimization.. (or whatever it was called)

It is quite simple.. you can select regions and specify that they should not be optimized..

I'm sure I mentioned how to do it somewhere.. anyway it evolves creating a channel and then in the optimization window Square-Circle icon.. for .jiffs you got one for the Color-Reduction-Method, Loosy and Dither (I think)

That should solve your problem..
Oh and the sig is just right, only complaint is your name.. nothin' wrong with it except you probably should have gone for smooth (looks to me like you have it on sharp).. IMO it's better to optimize text for looks rather then readability.. as long as people can read it it's fine.. they' only gonna read it once anyway.. and look at it as a glyph in your sig 99.99% of the time...

Honestly, not much to comment on your sigwork actually, You've correct the biggest offender .. The 2nd offender is noted .. You dont know how to deal it . Altho I really think 20 frames is too much frames .. and the snow drop is still a tad too fast =/

A crop sig, o_o .. If you make it yourself then kudos... the cropping is nicely done. Work on your text placement. Its too crowded ... and your name there have really weird font combo =/

Filter > Noise > Median......... to remove artifacts..
--
Duplicate the layer.. now on the duplicate..
Filter > Blur > Gaussian Blur > 'insert really big number here'..... then reduce the opacity enough, until you get a soft edge/fill effect.. works best with real-life material however..

<?> What's with the green and yellow.. both in the background and on the characters
<?> What's with the black thing in the middle..
<?> What does T.E. stand for on the top-left corner..
<?> Why is your name/quote in green.. it's really hard to read yu' know.. it blends too much with the character..

Anyway crits..
1. Can't see all too clear the right character. (because of the text)
2. The colors and details (shadows etcetera) have been totally destroyed by the green and yellow saturation.

Now it's KiNa's turn..

< Blue One >


Uhh.. nothing comes to mind.. looks perfect.. maybe it's not but I can't spot anything at first look that would catch my eye so I say Perfect.. gotta luv the positioning of your name Background looks great too..
Nice job.

< Green One >


<?> Why "C.C" and not "C.C.".. btw.. font looks good.
<?> Why is the bottom-left corner round and why does the top-right one have a round line..

1. Her but.. uhh.. it's not looking so good.....
2. Overall quality looks pretty bad.. either it's because of optimization or brushing.. can't tell.. IMO pencil artifacts are ok.. video and otherwise not ok.. (90% of the problem is on the foreground character e.a. the texture her skin, her hair, some background seems to have spilled on the left side of her hair.. etcetera)
3. The characters cancel each other out.. I really luv the way the background character blends in but she's almost unnoticeable if you look at the big picture..
4. The position of your name seems good.. but it's a little noisy.. and cluttered.. hard to notice and read..
5. Backgrounds good.. I like it .. the character could use some adjusting to stand out more.. maybe..

@ Klashikari
< Version 2 >


Hmm..
Pros..
1. The quality on the character is really good..
2. The text in blue "Yagami Hayate" is lovely..
3. The center-bottom part of the background is perfect..
4. Luv the colors you used for the background..

Cons..
1. Ok first thing.. the text bellow Reinforce II is just really annoying to read.. I really don' get what's suppose to be written there.. and it's giving me headaches trying to figure out..
2. That cross thing that's part of the top of her stick that you've enlarged.. and made transparent.. don' look so good.. can't see it ever will.. maybe replacing with something else.. it's also draws away to much focus from the character.. not in a good way..
3. I don't really like the way the background seems to be cut in places.. you have a pattern in the background and at some point it just cuts.. not saying it's bad the overall theme's really good.. but that cutting just seems so dull..
4. Lines are cool.. could use more.. maybe 3d like effects/interactions between them
5. The 'Stand By..' 'Ready..' 'Set Up..' text.. mm.. it's a little alone ain' it.. maybe adding some filler text next to it.. to make it more tech.. also the way 'Stand By..' 'Ready..' blend with the background.. uhh.. kind of weird and unnatural since it's suppose to represent some computer screen message..

<?> What does the damn text beneath 'Reinforce II' say >.<
-----------------------
And now some fresh meat for the grinder..
