As my one-thousandth post, I'm going to start my own thread with those odds and ends avatars and signatures that I've cobbled together...

Let's start off with my current avatar and signature:


And now I present the matching sets for the other girls!

.

.

(these are not up for grabs yet, I'm still need to tweak them a little bit)

<--claimed by garra113

And here's the sigs of the main Kanon girls I made: (which are up for grabs)

.

.



That's all for now!

Oh oh, first to reply ^_^ . Somehow I was sure that not all the artists had opened a thread yet. So you were one! Nice stuff by the way, congrats. I especially love the Lucky Star combos. (of course Kagami is my favorite one, but also that of Tsukasa is very nice )

p.s. attention on the Tsukasa siggy. Last name says "Hiiraga" while the correct one is "Hiiragi" (you wrote it right on Kagami, so it must be just a typo ^^).

I'll end with your favourite smiley.

Hmm did you draw your own avatar? ^^

Oh good work. The nayuki sig is very well done. Though some siggys need a bit of matching fonts =/. Well I can' really say mine never match =P. Still I like your creations you have a creative imagination. Usually I need to read tuts or have a quick 2hr nap or full good night sleep to think of ideas. still as Konata would say. Good Job! -_-b

I thought it could have been your trace. Just that the colouring here seems a litter darker. o_O. And it's the other way round.

@Crow: I find it odd to see the different art styles for the same character in the same signature... Sometimes I feel like I'm looking at different persons altogether, but it's still great at any rate ^^. Cookie.

Lol. I think I can see which anime are your favorites...

Great work, BTW. Now if only I could also be motivated to do work like this, too. ^_^

Nope, that's just the crop of the bg with a number of layers on top of each other. Like this:

Thanks! As to the font thing, can you give me some tips how to choose a matching font?

Keep plugging away and the experience you gain will benefit your creations! (as one who was there will attest!)

I couldn't find a suitable pic of Miyuki in her bathing suit, so this little gem fit the bill!

Thank you!. Well, when I'm using different fanart pics for the sources...

I haven't posted the sigs from my other favorite anime yet!
Motivation is a fickle thing, when the time is right, you'll find out what you really can do!

Thanks to you all!

Well, it's time to actually post something else in my thread...

When I first registered in December of '05 (after the "Great Hack of 2005"), the first avatar I used was this one:
= Crow T. Robot of TV's Mystery Science Theater 3000! Here are a couple of clips from episode 212: "Godzilla vs. Megalon" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1qdOo7YJbM4 (part 1) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qhsRVuxx_VE (part 2)

I kept that for about three months or so until I noticed a couple of people sporting new signatures consisting of some schoolgirl in a blue and white uniform with a yellow ribbon in her hair... and the rest is history...

I think the first avatar change I made was to this one from episode 3:
(thanks Pellissier!) and my first signature was this one: (thanks Panzerfan!)

It was about this time I bought 'the poor man's Photoshop' (Elements 4.0 because Windows' Paint just wouldn't cut it. ) and started to make my own starting with modifying Panzerfan's (with his permission, of course!).

Then came this maids thing... (I don't understand it either...)

.


More later!

Double post! (or more of that boring history stuff)

To continue... the first true original signature I made for myself came after Haruhi episode 12 where I got this theme based on Billy Joel's "A Matter of Trust" and featuring Haruhi and Kyon. I made three versions and you can see the progression as I started to use more features of Photoshop and develop my sense of design:






This last sig I used for about two months with only a break for... fanservice!



TBC... next post will be the last history lesson, I promise!

btw, bigdave, I saw those Ku-Fei pics you posted in Sweethoney's thread and some of them just screamed at me to make a sig out of them. Thus:


If bigdave doesn't want this sig, it will be up for grabs!

like it for the obvious reasons lol

It doesn't seem as busy as the other sigs. I don't like busy sigs alot. too much action happening in one signature is too much for an old man like me to take.

Spoiler for nice lighting:

That one is nice, something about the lighting really makes it stand out from the others, i'm liking the style ^^ keep up the great work
