Awesome. . .I'm one of the few who aren't taking the slap an anime character ontop of a starfield backround approach.

i think, you need to get the img url that imageshack offers you but suggests you don't use because it doesn't advertise their service

Its okay for a first, but your trying to make too many focal points (try to keep it down to only one or two focal points, and make everything blend around those). Right now, every planet feels like it is, or almost is, a focal point.

I also liked the text ;P however your typography needs some work, but if your just starting, don't jump onto that just yet, work on the focal points first. "
thx for the critiqs ill work on that

tried to do the image shack thing few times but didnt work out that well
was following the instructions from http://forums.animesuki.com/showthread.php?t=26533
and always ending up like that....think im doing something wrong lol

And what i meant about the filesize wasn't to get rid of the limit, just not make it so small. It would seem like more work to make sure people follow such a limit when simply doubling the limit size would make more sigs follow the rules while not really slowing users down by much :x
Duplicate layer, gaussian blur new layer at 1.9, set to soft light or overlay (depending on how strong you want the colors), opacity at 80 (tweak as needed), save for web, set at jpeg, 82 quality.

As for filesizes, the old phrase "give an inch, take a mile" applies. It would certainly offer more breathing room now, but eventually people would ask to make it bigger still. The current limits are satisfactory because they keep the forum easier to load and read, but don't constrain creativity too much (except animations, but clever artists have figured out tricks to make things work).

The optimizing process can be a pita sometimes though. Just ask Riker or KiNA.

Well, yeah, most certainly that's the most popular approach. Is this ship from EvE?

Yes, it's the Rokh (@ text), a Caldari Battleship.
And I love the sig, especially since EVE has a very tranquil color scheme by itself and it got nice effects...no, I am not biased because I play it myself

blah, i can't get used to this size limit thing regardless, it's not like were using 56k modems anymore <_<

anyways

arceon
an eve sig
Not much to say about it. It looks like a screenshot yet it looks good.

lunarsun
lol, actually its quite simple, here look at this

Code:
[img]http://img152.imageshack.us/img152/2456/32873603hr5.jpg[/img]
thats the img URL you need and the tags you should use, however your using the imageshack forum coding that is provided by imgshack

Code:
[URL=http://img152.imageshack.us/my.php?image=32873603hr5.jpg[IMG]http://img152.imageshack.us/img152/2456/32873603hr5.th.jpg[/IMG][/URL]
If you look, you will notice the same code i said above is in this code right here. The url with the my.php in it leads you to the imgshack full view page http://img152.imageshack.us/my.php?i...2873603hr5.jpg which is not what you want, so all you need is the url with the [img] tags around it

an easier way to do that is when you finish uploading to imgshack, view the full image and then right click it and select "copy image location" and then paste it in your post with img tags around it
Sry Lunarsun, I guess I rly cant show you why it doesn't work, so simply copy the url location of the full view and paste it within img tags.

EDIT: incorporated [noparse] tags

[b]solace[/b]
I see, since jpeg artifacts can be controlled a little with blurring, your taking more control over the blur so that it comes out with a quality blur that minimizes the effect. Very intuitive

[b]markesellus[/b]
still looking kinda low quality :\ perhaps its your resources and not just jpeg artifacts

Well, I do love EVE ships, they are quite a thing. Though, Atomico you do know that's an Abaddon class rather than a Apocalypse class in your sig right?

Regardless, I touched up the sig slightly and changed the text.

FINAL ENTRY:



@Ehko: Yeah, I know it looks like the screenshot, but I much rather not slap C4Ds or Fractals ontop of these screenies, kinda ruins the effect you know? Though since people may think I just slapped a screenshot and a border on, I did do a lot of tweaking to the original image:

@Ehko - Essentially, yes. The trick is to not let the blur get in the way of the detail.

Also, we don't allow /code. We do however, allow /noparse. Try it out.

I understand that its a bug no one has taken care of yet, lol but saying it is un-allowed might be over doing it when it's even part of the posting interface still.

I'll try to remember to not allow parsing, though that's a pretty uncommon tag

anyways

lunarsun
as i was saying before

you need to put in your img like this
[img]http://img152.imageshack.us/img152/2456/32873603hr5.jpg[/img]
and make sure you don't put in the url with the "my.php" in it because that will lead to an error.

Is that from Halo? (and infinite is spelled correctly)

muahahah! My plan to confuddle the animators has succeeded!

Nice to see the sigs so far. We've got the hardcore space group with authentic battleship/planet/galaxy look v. the anime character on a space background look. Not sure which way I'm going to swing yet
