About the signature you are using, I think you should had keep the usual brightness of Excalibur, especially the blade. The vertical one look good, the artwork used work well. Maybe it's me but centered the girl, cutting a little on the left or showing more on the right could had helped.

BTW, what's those ''bokeh effects'' you are talking about ?

I think so too, maybe I should've adjusted the glow effect on Excalibur a bit.

The placing of the render for the vertical sig is intentional. IMO, it doesn't look too good if I placed the render on the center

I don't know how to explain much
but read this wiki article about Bokeh
basically, it's related to depth. Lights from afar looks like this when it's blurred. It's pretty much used to create depth and create focus.

but in that sig, I just used it for effect. Maybe I should've blurred the background to add depth and make it more realistic

thanks for the comments!

Sorry for roaming on your thread without permission, Frailty, but do you mind if I steal take this as part of my collection? I really like what you've done here and Sophie is my favourite character in ToG. Speaking of Graces I need to Platinum it, none the less, I like what you've done and the colors really match the characters.

Keep up the great work and once again, sorry for coming on your thread unannounced. I was a little curious. That's all!

well... since you asked permission, I won't mind

Platinum on Graces, eh?... I remember grinding shards for hours just to finish all the requests to fight the Gentleman to get my last trophy for Platinum. Not sure if those were good times though

and lastly, thank you for the compliment

I wouldn't say fast
I started making these 5 years ago
that's a pretty long time
but thanks!

anyway
update!
Underwater theme.. or something


^will probably make it AS safe and use it as my sig


^I think this one lacks a border this time. I often tell people how borders are sometimes relevant and sometimes unneeded. This one time, I feel like this needed a border. I just couldn't think of how will I do it

both are in png format, so its quality is lossless but the filesize is so much bigger

C&C are welcome

Very, very nice use of C4Ds and giving a feeling of being underwater. Can't think of much to complain about, really. Border or no border, I think it works fine either way... Might actually prefer borderless.

Very nice update here. I like the underwater effects but I can't judge them on the technical, no knowing how it's done...

That could be only a question of personal preference (or not) but the only complains I could have would be the character's placement on the first one ( I understand the idea to focus on the girl's hair but moving her a few pixels higher could had keep that focus and made the girl feel less like on the bottom) and the focus on the second one is a bit too high, so far from the center.

I've always done my work by finding a stock and a render, manipulating the stock to match the render. rotate if necessary, same goes for the background.
then I do trial and error with C4D's, more manipulation (smudge here, burn there... blur here, dodge there... etc) and gradient maps

As for the first one, I placed the render like that to make it seem like she's falling down the water
second one, I was aiming for the couple's heads to be at the center, rather than their bodies. If the render still doesn't appear to be at the center, that's my fault

anyway, thanks for the comments! I appreciate it~

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

now for an update:

<-- followed an old tutorial with this. Not too happy with the result. Just wanted to do a BB tag because BBCP is just too awesome :P

<-- I feel that I blurred the background too much

certainly not the best of my works
they could've been better. I was bored when I did these and was really unimaginative that time.
still, comments are appreciated

I don't think than the background of the oversized one but it could had been interesting to had made those green effects at the girl's side more brighter. As about the first one, having the guy so much on the left side could be the biggest issue.

so, another update


^full version of my current sig.
I think I've got this habit to make non-AS safe tags, then crop it to turn it AS-safe


^used this for a contest on a different forum


^cropped sig, nothing special. It was a sig I used because I couldn't contain my BBCP hype. Love the game.
PS: Kokonoe is OP lmao

The first one really get my attention, the detail of the background and the green-pinkish purple contrast are the main reason for it. Too bad the girl don't have as much detail in it.

not sure what more detail I'd add to the render.
I think it's blended well enough
any more blending and it'd be all over the place

Because I was so unsure as to what kind of border I should place, I kept it borderless

and hey, not sure if you remember me
but it's been a while
I haven't posted in your thread but I do lurk there from time to time during the sotm days
