Okay, my first draft...and, yes, I'm working on the smoke...still working on the smoke... . I hope this sig doesn't serve as an advertisement for smoking.



C&C please
Frau automatically gets you my vote. <3
The only C&C I can give is that there doesn't seem to be any real focus, I can't concentrate on the right side (which I think is what you want the focus to be) because my attention is drawn to the left, and vice versa. I hope that made sense.

As much as I love skeletal Frau, I think it would look better without him, or maybe you could try blending him into the background.

While that's normally enough proof, the jakeyuan guy seems to be a member of a lot of graphic forums, where it isn't unusual for members to post the PSDs as learning aids.

@ Escimo I really prefer this one's background, more room for the color
@ PreSage Reworking the animation . I wonder about the usefulness of the element at the lest of the sig.

This is version 4 and 5 ( I finished ver.4 right before going to to work so I didn't have the time to post it and I hadn't read the comments yet)
Version4 ( reworked the colors and maked them brighter ) C&C are wekcome as usual.

Version 5 ( Changed the font of the text)

Spoiler for ver3 for comparition:

Version 5 is the first time I've liked the looks of the font, color, and location. The wording (I assume that's the character's name) is so-so for me though. Perhaps another phrase but keeping version 5's look?

I'm well aware of the fact that people post psd's. I have my own reasons for wishing to see them.

Sorry Yorg, bust conciderating that something like 2 months ago you asked me if I could show you how to make a sig (a tuto I worked specially for you and that you never said "thanks" btw), it's kind imposible for you to evolve that skills in so few time, I had passed a year in graphics and I can't blend that good yet.

And also, how can you blend so well yet don't know how to reduce size?

But I don't want to stop trusting you so... why don't you show how do you blend them? A tutorial of how you did it creating new sig with the same efects? That would help.

Version 5 is the best.

I'd give you cookies but the system won't let me right now.
This may help

@Katocchi it look good. The blue lines are catching my attention, I am not sure if it's in a good way or not.

Version 6 of my sig, I changed the text, hoping than this one is the good one . C&C are welcome .

Tried even simpler look to get it more focused and played around with levels a bit. Ended up with a bit more saturated finish.

@ katocchi I can't really say which one I prefer.
@P.G. Somehow I was expecting something like that comming from you I am not sure the ''ligh'' effect on the top of the sig is a goos idea .

Version 6, I reworked the colors and the render, made the lend effect behind her bigger.
C&C are welcome.

The font is a lot better than your previous versions. To me the red colour in the lower right corner seems to overwhelm (and distract from) the rest of the sig.

I actually like the Touka one (despite my comment about him looking like a girl ). I think it's because he's actually doing something and that gives some "animation" to the sig, whereas Len's version seems a bit lifeless. But I think the tree and feathers seem out of place with the rest of the sig.

@escimo: your latest version gives me the feeling of speed. It's nice. |D

@Evil Rick: Thanks for the link!

The concept are blending are nice. But (yes, there's always the but ) the sig itself feels a bit empty. You can adjust that by either reducing the background while keeping the render at the present size, thus the sig would be smaller but it would look a bit better overall. And slightly tone down the brightness (or maybe it's just my screen).

Now if you don't want to do that you can perhaps add a slight sunset and even some birds to fill the background.

Made this to use on MAL, then realised I could use it here. xD
I want to keep it fairly simple, so I wont be adding any brushes or C4Ds or anything like that. I'm planning on adding text to the bottom right, but at the moment I don't have anything in mind, so I'm open to suggestions.

Yep, the text fits better

Yeah, the bg help to focus more on the render but doesn't it looks just a bit empty at the sides now?

Doesn't it looks a bit too blue? Maybe the colors are a bit saturated.

Looks really empty at the right side and it only looks like a simple bg with a render sticked on top of it O.<

EDIT: Saw the text vesrion, yeah, it fills the empty space a bit but it still looks kinda simple, too simple.
