Wow, I'm so glad everyone liked this sig, I'm surprised. xD

Thanks Atomico. I had such a difficult time figuring out what to do with the text since once I was done I couldn't find a good place to put it. I'm glad you think it fits on the side like that, I didn't want it to take the attention away from the sig itself.

Now that you mention it, I agree.
Haku! You must do a vector of it and resize +x100. Imagine the result...
Haha...ha...ha.
NO WAY. That...wouldn't even be possible for me. Or is it...?

One of the few sigs, that would look absolutely fabulous even as a real picture hanged on a wall somewhere...
Wow, thanks so much. It makes time well spent with comments like yours.

The circle thingies are actually from a stock image I found on DeviantArt, I didn't have the patience to do them with the pen tool at the time. xD

Ooh, Ledgem got it! That's exactly what I was going for. I'm so happy you noticed.

Sankyuu, to you both.


To share; I used this stock for my previous Okami sig. Much love to it's creator. ♥

And another sig I made as a request on another forum. Not AS-safe.

If anyone wants it, I can make it AS safe. ^^

Miyuki-Chan I still love you!

Nice work on the whole set. It really pays off when you wait for a good source to show up.

I didn't make much of Konata and Kagami since there were already quite a few in the Lucky Star avatar thread.

Kagamiku Vector for Marina-chan! I didn't forget.

Whee~ It's also wallpaper sized~

Psst...Daniel-kun, I HATE using colored lines. xD

Hey Haku,
I saw some of these works on another site, do you show your work to another site or is it a theft?
You want me to PM the site to you?

I'll admit that they are a bit tricky to use unless you are used to them.

Unlike black outlines, you cannot simply connect all points using colors. You need to follow an specific layer order for specific parts and you always need to respect that order.

Regardless, I think you ended up with a very cute vector, and I seriously believe colored outlines helped in that regard.

Well....I forgot! Hehehe, but now I remember, thank you so much! It looks great, I'll have to ask you tips on vectoring someday if and when I try it...
*shifts vector to personal files for later use*
I'll make sure to credit you when I use it

It's very frustrating sometimes working with them. I wasn't sure what order to put them in so I ended up going back and erasing some of the lines for it to look more pleasing to the eye.

Is there a trick to knowing what colors go on top? I'm used to just using one layer for the out line, and I ended up having about 6 or so. xD

But I'm glad you do think it turned out well. ^^

You forgot? xD Silly Marina-chan~
And you're very welcome, happy to hear you like it.


And now, a Colette Signature.

Text didn't work out as much as I had hoped. And I need to get some help on levels as well as curves, because there isn't as much "depth" on the sig as I'd hoped. ^^;

Geez, my style keeps changing...>.>;;

Not much of a trick, but you can always try to visualize the order of every element before you even start tracing.

Such as hair accesories wich usually go on top of the hair, face outlines that usually go below the hair, clothing outlines that covers the skin ones and so on and so on.

There are always exceptions, but if you plan ahead, you can easy the process of colored outlining greatly.

Quote:

I always split the trace in subsections to give myself more freedom to make changes. Up to 3 or 5 layers for every big or complicated part within a trace.


-Hair outlines
-Layer 01
-Layer 02
-Layer 03
-Skin outlines
-Layer 04
-Layer 05
-Layer 06

"Hair outlines" and layers 1,2 and 3 are only used for the hair, whereas "Skin outlines" and the ones below are (obviously) for the skin parts of the character.

I never repeat a line in the same layer and I never use two colors within the same section. Of course, this is just the basic of it; If the hair covers the face but the arms cover a bit of hair, what is one to do?

You create even more layers, of course!

-Skin extra outlines
-Hair outlines
-Layer 01
-Layer 02
-Layer 03
-Skin outlines
-Layer 04
-Layer 05
-Layer 06
-Hair extra outlines

You could always try to use the eraser tool and avoid all this, but for the most part, I try hard not to rely too much on it.

Once everything is set, I merge all the sublayers (with some exceptions here and there) and end up with the following:

-Skin extra outlines
-Hair outlines
-Skin outlines
-Hair extra outlines

With this, I usually have a total of 25 - 40 layers just for outlines........and just for one character.

haha YES! Yume Miru Katsuri or something like that. Don't ask how I know. I've seen your work all over the place, but I think this is my first visit to your thread. You're quite the master of animated and transparent work.

OMG, Daniel-kun that has helped so much. Thanks! Cookied~

Lv, why do you bring up one of my OLDEST sigs. Lulz, it looks so horribly plain. But thanks for your kind words.


Just one sig this time.

Made for a friend of mine.

Let me just say that this sig is completed simply by the light. The light rays seems to be in the right place and the clouds in the bg fit in with that. The render also, somehow, fits in, even if the color contrast a bit much. However, the contrast does help against the slightly red bg. Good thing you skipped the text too as it would ruin the calmness I feel.
All in all, a great sig as usual.

I bring it up because it's OH SO cute regardless of age. Simplicity can also look MUCH better than a cluttered signature. And that new signature is... Basically everything AtomicoX said. Except I like contrast so that signature is my idea of perfection. You really picked good spots for the lighting.
