Welcome to my area of random GFX work where I showcase my (now infrequent) past time. v1.2



UPDATE!: 20/06/09

Current Signature ~



Recent Siggies













1) INTRODUCTION

Spoiler for brief intro to how I got into photoshop:



2) Before the great hiatus
  1. 2.1) These are a random mash of my early attempts at making signatures. I can't say that they are anything worth to look at but they provided a stepping stone for me.

    Spoiler for earlier works:


    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

  2. 2.2) The following works are stuff made with a little more knowledge of Photoshop. Still nothing great :/

    Spoiler for middle tier:

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

  3. 2.3) Now this was where I started to become more confident with creating signatures of viewable qualities and from here on it should not be that cringing to look at for those seasoned GFXers.

    Spoiler for later works:


------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The year that got away.

Amazingly I had completely forgotten what it is to "update" and thus have left this area stuck in the past of 2007. Funnily enough procrastination is an odd thing that takes time away from things that are important and invests them into something that isn't. I suppose that I will feel the sting of it pretty soon but for now I can finally find an excuse to update this thread


3) Lost year and the coming of the great hiatus
  1. 3.1) Signatures! Well surprisingly I have a lot of them lined up but without comments for now.

    Spoiler:

  2. 3.2) Renders! I now have those too! May not be a large list but damn do they take time to do

    Spoiler:

  3. 3.3) Vectors...err...sorry Dan I can't do them ;_;
  4. 3.4) Avatars, a whole selection of them all randomly arranged here...actually...why the heck are there so many Dansen avies!

    Spoiler:

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


4) The great hiatus


Believe it or not I have been missing for almost half a year since later September 2008 from the GFX front. The reason simply being this was the year I was kicked out of my warm and fuzzy house to face the cold harsh world and this thing called University that literally saps away any of my previous carefree time. Thus sadly I haven't produced much in support of the GFXers here but there were times where I do have strokes of inspiration...
  1. 4.1) Signatures
    Spoiler:

  2. 4.2) Renders


  3. 4.3) Avies
    Spoiler:


[More to come in the distant future...]

Not bad, its better then anything I ever came up with. Ill say that the Nerine one was my fav, looked the best in my opinion. Not a huge fan of the text in the sigs though since you used the same font over and over so again, not a bad start

I agree with celcius, Dont say yours are bad or I may have to bring out my old Utawarerumono ones to show you how bad a sig can sometimes get.

Seriously though, The Nerine does look cool.

OH SHI- ... This one rocks.

If it wasn't made at the request of someone else, I would have grabbed it on the spot.

did a little mistake for the tie in forgetting that it had an insignia but ill soo fix that
Looking good so far; Though, what actually amazes me the most is the fact that you went straight to the Shape Layers method.

You also got a good source pic, wich can help a lot when you are working out the little details in the end.

Eyes are actually pretty easy to make (or so I think ). Just pick your base color for them, then make the colored 'U' pattern on another layer(s) (Pen tool) and end adding the light effects (could be gradients, blurs, or whatever you think could make them look cool) on another one.

If you ask me, doing hands and fingers is far more complicated. >_<!!!

Oh, and dont be afraid of the original pic. If you think something needs to be changed, just go ahead and do it.

well yes i figured if im gonna do it i might as well do it the hard (and long) way you make the eyes part sound soo easy but im still perplexed when looking at them

oh and it reminds me quick question for ya how do you do the tones of colours such as the darker bit in the hair etc?

You mean the color of shadows and light effects?

Those are just darker/lighter versions of the base color on another layer. I always split colors so that one layer never has more than one. Then I just blur the edges and play a little bit with the oppacity % to get the desired result.


Mind you, I am no good at making my own colors, so I simply grab them from other pics (HQ Wallpapers, Game CG, etc.) with the eyedropper tool.

I've got some 600 hand picked fonts installed. I don't download packs, too much junk that I would never use. It'd probably take longer to sort through them all than it does just to go through a site page by page and pick the good ones.

Oh, and Font Xplorer is a really handy program to have open any time you're editing sigs and such in photoshop

edit: Well, since I've just fixed my internet problems and can actually upload to my site again, I've zipped my fonts and upped them for you Deathkillz:

Clickies for a present! (little over 9mb)

Just extract and install, simple as that
