Enlarge the eye to fit 3/4 the BG and fit the font size accordingly IMO.

Ok on to the sig itself... good job on the lighting edit, seeing the original sig I can say that ^^ .. I still say Eruruu wears too many makeup .. kinda like having a chinese opera character there =x. In all honestly, in sig I feel that you dont have to conform to the original skin color tone. Especially when you have several characters from different series.. the edit would be necessary IMO. Lose that thanks 2006 .. Or snuck it somewhere in the corner. hmm on 2nd thought, how about in mid bottom between Nayuki and Haruhi and on top of Eruruu chest area? o_O Also, is the kanji stuff necessary?

=======
Change the font, and changed the smoke .. and switch white to gold for the animated text o_O
Question, you guys interested for a tutorial to animate the text like i'm been using currently ?

What the...!? You're judging an older version of my signature! Judge the new one! /slap!

Well, I think we all kinda know how to make .gifs. There are tutorials around this particular forum subsection. I'd be more interested to hear how you got the first frame to display on all frames, as this tutorial forgot to cover that. I can imagine that was how you were able to reduce the file size of your signature. I want to be able to do that too. But if you had another technique, share share.

To be honest, I'm not liking the color that's running across your name. It's become much more of a stretch to read your name since it's as sepia-toned as the rest of the background. And if it's not highlighted, it's black, and that's all the same. The font's okay. The smoke is much better.

When you say I don't have to conform to the original skin tone, I dunno... if that was true, you wouldn't be so ambivalent about Eruruu's look. I tried to give them the same lighting condition as best as I could, color balancing, adjusting the black/white levels, even changing the background to suit something similar to where I originally extracted Nayuki's. Nayuki is the most unforgiving lighting condition of them all. Since her shadows are really hard all over her clothes, it would take a lot more work to get her fitted to a neutral lighting situation. Again, I spent the better half of a day working on the signature below (and I think I have carpel tunnel too lol). Well, these are the original images I worked from. Maybe this'll give you a better idea of what I had to put up with.



That's not a ghost! It's just what Eruruu wears!

Ehehehehe.. gomen gomen .. what I mean that you dont have to conformed to the original color tone is if your creation needed it to be, just change their color tone to match each other girls..Take Eruruu, you say she's whitish originally, so when putting it beside the other girls, her whitish stood up .. thats the problem.. which is why I suggested you to changed her color tone and to be honest, I prefer to keep Haruhi skin tone .. and changed the other girls to matched hers ^^. Oh btw, I knew that you have a newer version that you send tru pm.. but what you present here is the old 1 ^^, so ..

btw,

Huh?

===
@ my sig comment..
Anyway, the original name was intended to be black .. and the gold color is changed to match the BG.. and personally, between the black/ white combi in the older verion and this current 1, I kinda like this 1 better.

Thanks on the comment for the smoke tho.. that smoke alone took a lot more time then the other stuff ^^ .. smudging and dodging and burning and dodging again ;_; .. and its just 3 frames only too ;_;.. would love to have more but filesize a burden >.>

And thanks for the pic.. Carrier

O_O .. You've improved ^^b

Which is the main pic and which is the BG? Hard to tell to be honest .. They are both vying to be the main pic... How to improve it ? hmm, make the left side more blend with the BG.. lower opac, try brushing too, you seems to be using filters mostly on most of your sig. Also, notice that the 1 on the right, her arm got covered by your filter/ or that stroke thingie .. her face is not tho..


For this one, the right 1 is not cut cleanly, You can see a trace of the original BG not blending to the rest of the BG .. The sig itself is empty, You try to have nothing obstruct the BG face... A BG suppose to serve as a playground for other sig stuff .. not stand alone. Maybe move the text Makina Tomoe to the mid? also, while in the 1st sig, your name blends with the sig, in this one its kinda feel alienated .. thats why you suppose to fill the BG with something ^^

I think by brushing he means to use the paint brush, and I'm a noob at reading this part of the board, but brushing probably refers to using brushs like those found on deviantart.

In response to the person who put up the iroha sig, I'd been meaning to make one using that picture for a good while now, and actually had started on one today before I decided to post the other sig I made today. I'm not really sure what to put in the BG though. I sort of want to put in Sakura petals(like in the OP), but I haven't found a vector for that yet(and perhaps some trees).

Anyways, I made a sig using Septieme from Pumpkin Scissors today, and I kinda like it, but I feel like its lacking. I was trying to show the duality of her personality in it as well with the brooding picture in the BG and the bright energtic one in the foreground. I really haven't done too many sigs before though, so the backgrounds always kinda leave me wondering what to do.



Here's what I got so far for the Iroha one too: (removed cause I overwrote the jpg accidentally :P)
Spoiler:


[Edit]:
Zaris: If you use ImageReady you can choose what layers are visible on each frame, and there can be more than one visible. That alone should tell you enough to be able to do what you are wanting I think. For example, to make a border from an independent layer (not one of the frames initial layers) you'd make a layer, place the border on it, and go into each frame, and set that layer to be visible during that frame in the animation. The same goes if you want the initial layer of the first frame to be visible in each frame of the animation. Just go through and set it to be visible as well as the other normally visible layer for the particular frame. I hope this helps, and was what you are looking for. If it wasn't or if you have any questions let me know and I'll try to help.

The brush tool


You can change the the brush setting here ..


Clicking the about button get you this .. ^^

Oh.. in that last pic, there's a little triangle button .. near the red arrow I draw @ #1 .. clicking that would allow you to switch to other brush you have installed.. I have a screenshot of that, but it seems like I didnt save it .. Too lazy to reopened my PS again .. try to look for it and if you still cant find it.. I shoot my PS back again and get the screenshot .. but its a cute little triangle there.. shouldnt be hard to miss ^^v

Remove the filter 1st, then try brushing .. remember, in making sig BG, dont drag the brush.. but 1 click at a time.. Try reading Yuiichi's excellent brushing tutorial in the tutorial thread ^^

for the 2nd sig.. move the text to fill the empty space? .. Kinda blank idea now =/

Thats a good extract, especially if the original is from the screenshot.

Hunt around for leaves brush .. even sakura brush for photoshop yielded some result for me


hmm.. the BG doesnt convey the dark mood IMO.. Dont blend the face in the same color , also maybe try some other brush instead of those starry brush? Maybe grunge? The Font dont match with either pic too =/

I did some work on the other one, and I kinda like how it's turned out. The thing I dislike the most though is the font/name. I'm looking for a font that gives me an historic japanese feel. Could you tell me what the font you used in your's KiNa?(p.s. thanks for leading me in the right direction for those brushes) I'd like to give it a try. I also was thinking of adding a slight haze effect or something towards the top of the image, think it'd make it better or worse? Any other suggestions are welcomeas well.



[Edit]: I quickly added something sorta like a haze, not sure if I think it looks better or worse, so I'm putting it up here to let me see em side by side :P (as well as for others to comment on)



Also, Klashkari, or anyone who knows, what font did you use for "When they cry" ? I really like it, and need a decent cursive font like it.

Pretty much done with this, the only thing is I don't know what font to use and where to put it. (I don't want to cover the nice looking faces of all 3 girls. ) I wanted to use the actual black lagoon font, but I can't find it. Also, is the image too blurry?

The only empty spot available in near Revvy'a butt or on the transparent BG ^^ .. Would be better if you not cropped out Bala tho

Also, IIRC Black Lagoon font = Garamond >.< Been a long time since I used it tho .. maybe I'm wrong..

@ Klashi .. Hishashi buriii .. me troddle over to dafont to look for rage italic font

I checked garamond and it's not it. As for the place to put it, near revy's rear is probably the best place.

All I see is a blurry pic.. No feeling .. Would be better if you have a focus point which is sharp then gradually blurred to its surrounding =/


WTF .. if it wasn't for the file name I would not have noticed Saber.. Bad decision.. if you want all 3.. then include all 3.. not 2 and a half head.. Nice color transition in the BG too, altho, it suffers the same thing with the 1st sig.. its bland -.-

At the moment, I am having a major headache with trying to somehow put in enough frames so that I can get a smooth transition going....


(8 frames in all... 256 colors. way over limit.)


(This would be just using tween tool)

I can't really use the tween tool in Imageready to do this kind of cascading effect, so I had to do it by hand. I wonder if there is a way around that somehow...
The quality of the source also suffers considerably, and I am all out of idea about how to compensate for that.

I'm not really sure off hand how you could make it more size efficient, but I downloaded the top gif to take a look at it later on in more detail (bout to head to class). I'm assuming all of the resused parts and such have already been set to static or semi static layers to save space?

Any suggestions what could go into the background of mine? I wanted it to look somewhat empty, because I don't like excessively "busy" backgrounds. I was thinking maybe a moon coming through the trees or something? any ideas? I also had another extracted image of her, but it didn't quite seem to fit in. The way it original was it needed to be on the far right edge, and was a big image of her face slightly cropped off, and I figured that it'd take away focus from the other one.
