You guys might want to blend your pictures a bit... but other than the missing border and the crud background pictures what do you thinkk of my sig?

Utami
July 26th, 2006, 10:41 PM
Hmm... the hard light that the Sakura is in makes it look hard on the eyes. You should make it a little darker and the Sakuria text should be smaller and fit the signature. The kanji in the side should be smaller too. And like you pointed out, it also needs a border. The background picture is pretty good but mainly, you should add a little more color instead of just pink. Maybe a little yellow and yellow-ish pink.

Well, they are all really good but they kind of all have the same format. They all only have one pokemon too. Try to add different pictures of the pokemon into the sig. My suggestion is you go here (http://www.pokemon-safari.com/sitio/gallery/) for more pictures. I know their site is spanish but they have good pictures. I like the hoothoot one the best.

Oversaturated and stock placement is thoughtless... The text seems to be more of a focal point than the stock, which just doesn't look right. Try to avoid using filters on stocks at all, stick with basic colour changes, and don't use downloaded brushes anymore.

I do like these, the banner is fine, but the bit on the left bottom/side's little mirror effect irks me. Change the icon's positioning? Maybe not as much of a close up to Roy's face. Lovely coloring though, I dig the oversaturated look personaly. ;P

I'd have to agree with Paige. The oversaturation blends the stock into teh BG, which is earns my approval. The mirror effect.. ekk XD Oh and nice colours, Paige, I see you are quite skilled at it~

Black and white images are love.

Realy nice, Karli, it's my favorite thing you've ever made as a matter of fact. Really pretty brushes too. You use that checkered-looking background a lot, huh? I think we can call it your trademark thing... The text is placed just so as well.
*crappy with text* D;

Sorano
October 12th, 2006, 05:25 PM
Wow, thanks Paige. ♥ It's one of my favourite pieces of work, as well. It took me quite a while to do. xD; I try not to use the checkered-look all the time, but when I do I try to make it look different each time. As for the text...I usually suck with that, as well. It took me a bit to figure out where it would look best. I'm kind of uncertain about where "Karli" is located, so I might take it out.

As always, lovely work, Sorano. Especially your choice and style of text, which makes it grainy and pieces it into the background. I thought accepted typefaces were enough....

At least I can manage to scratch a living off of my profession, do you get paid to be a raving pokemon fan? Sounds like an exciting job. People who don't have the ability to create brushes needn't make brushes at all. Despite popular belief, "Axel," mindlessly brushing around with downloaded grunge sets is not the only thing you can do with programs like Photoshop or even (need I even mention it?) Paint Shop Pro. And programs like the GIMP don't even feature such a function, but also lack other vital operations. I'd prefer you do all your work in Microsoft Paint than you use downloaded photoshop brushes. Someone with access to more than brushes shouldn't be so condescending as to only work in the field of brushes and colour balance.

And the quotation marks around Axel were placed there because I don't know who you are.

Nope, I don't get paid to be a raving Pokemon fan, since I'm not a raving Pokemon fan. I get paid for doing work off of my computer, where there is sunshine and people to involve myself with. And no, I don't have to be a "raving Pokemon fan" to be here. I'm simply here for the people, and because of a loyalty towards this place that I can not seem to shake no matter how hard I try.

I'm aware of what those two programs are capable of; I own them both. However, not everyone has access to them, or maybe they lack the skills or time. Because remember, most people don't have the time to sit around all day and make computer graphics. Downloading brushes is a matter of convenience for those who lack the time, skill, or resources. What you prefer means nothing. You aren't the god of all graphic design, nor does the fact that it is your "profession". Most members here just make banners for fun and to decorate their profiles, not to earn money or use on business related items.

As for my identity, I've gone by many a name. Legendary_Pokemaster, Daiaki, Daisuke, Yukito, Kurosaki, and now this username.

Sawyer
November 1st, 2006, 09:00 PM
Wait... I'm not quite understanding your logic here. You said not everyone has access to Photoshop... and you said that's the reason people use brushes. But what I was implying was that the other programs don't really allow you to steal someone else's work so efficiently. I agree with you on just about everything else you just stated... but I'd like to comment on what you said about how most people don't have the time to sit around all day and make computer graphics. See, it looks like people have enough time to sit around all day and talk about pokemon, and I hang out with other designers.. they're a lot like people here, they spend a lot of time doing what they love to do. I'm not going to say I have that kind of time because I don't... I haven't actually done any formal work in design for about 3 months because I've been busy living the life someone my age should live. I am in no way the god of all graphic design, but I do know quite a bit about art and what stealing it is.

I don't know about raving pokemon fans but I agree with both of you. Infact, doing pictures in photoshop is the same as doing it in paint. Regardless, it takes skill to make a good pic. I've been around the gfx scene for a while and you come to realize this after a certain period of time. "If the sig was made by your own hands, I dont give a rats a$$ of what you use to make it. I prefer photoshop over paint because it's more adeptable of what I do for signatures. C4D, brush sets, etc, they are just a tool that we use to make pics. And as a tool, you have to be pretty damn good using it to make some good stuff.

Now for the sig rating, I like the fact that you used Tales of the Abyss characters but the Asch sig looks a little brush whored. It was a nice idea to try to brush an artifical wing on Asch..but it wasn't really needed. I love the Ion av though....oh wait, Loveless made those.

Shinou Pearl, you totally whored your sig with a variey of brush effects, just ease up on the amount of strokes you make...

Brush sets are not tools, they were not coded or manufactured at a home depot factory. They're pieces of work made by an artist and when used they should be credited. They are royalty-free stocks, but they don't belong to you.

...so what the point? If that was the case, the people who make the renders would have to credit the company who made the picture itself? Apparently these are mean't to be shared if they post it on the net, if not they would just have kept them for personal use. I make stocks and paint brushes but I don't go around telling people to credit me or what not all the time. I knew what I was getting into when I submitted it.

What the hell are you talking about? Would you like to look at my work? I've never used a sprite in one of my tags, I've never used your so called "over-saturated squares." If you want to look at the kind of people who potentially will whore this style, you need only look in a mirror. Do not take me for an idiot for even a second, I'm not here for the ego you seem to take so seriously. Once upon a time, that's who I was, but I am an artist now. I don't do your impish "banners," I work in tee-shirt design and posters. I used to imagine you people actually didn't understand how using downloaded brushes is not scratch artwork, but now I realize you do, in fact, get it. Of course if someone gets on your case about using artwork that isn't your own, you're going to defend yourself. That's only natural. You keep up what's easy, and when someone gets in the way and tries to help you start making your own art, you crucify him. I understand this process, it's happened to all designers who've found creativity in themselves. I've been designing for years, and I've seen my growth. In the prime of my "design" career, I had everyone on my side. That's what design was back then... it was like having an expensive sports car or large muscles. If you were decent at something nobody at the time could do, you were the ****. Look... http://www.theud.com/pokecommunity/showthread.php?t=22261
Back then it was all about marking your territory... look how far I've come. http://www.vsupernus.com/sawyer/

Over the years I've come to realize that not everyone has the advantages I have now. When I first started I was outspoken everywhere, now I'm only outspoken here. Among my fellow artists, however, I actually have something to say. Believe me, I used to use downloaded brushes until I actually came into contact with real designers. I spent an entire year in the shadow of oblivion and then I met my maker. :) I hope that those of you who are actually serious about design will find your way to real art.

Try actually reading what people post instead of jumping in just so you can pull a speach out of your arse.

You were talking to Mario Famous, you would not have referred to him in the 3rd person if you were speaking directly to him. That's called 2nd person. The "his" was either directed towards me, or someone else. I assumed it was directed toward me, hence the paragraph. And for the record, I read over your post several times trying to make sense of it.

It's called sarcasm you over dramatic retard. You both need to learn it. Now quit trying to cover your tracks. Banners aren't most people's here's life's work you know? Quit making them out to be such a big deal. You said something stupid, let it go and quit arguing before you get in trouble.

Sawyer
November 8th, 2006, 08:06 PM
That's perfectly reasonable, Axel, I'm sorry for lashing out like that. Don't hold me to this, but I'm not particularly apologetic to you, Loveless. I did not say anything stupid or degrading, and I'm not worried about getting in trouble. I probably won't get in trouble, and if I do I have nothing to lose. I'm not worried about getting banned for telling you your work is not really yours, and if I do end up getting banned for that I probably won't want to have much to do with this website anyway. The point I'm making is correct, not because I say it is but because I know it is. It might not matter to most of you and it doesn't matter to me while I'm here amongst peers, not other designers. But I said what I wanted to say and I'm not going to take it back.

You have absolutly no right to judge what art is. What your basicly saying is that you are an artist and others arent simply because they can't make their own brushes. What makes you so special you get to decide what art is? I don't go around telling 5 year olds that macaroni collages aren't their art work because they didn't make the pasta, glue and paper. Art is whatever the artist makes it. Brushes are put on deviart to be downloaded, or else they wouldn't have that option. If you can make your own, cool for you, but if you can't, that sure as hell doesn't make you a good "artist", it just means you can make a photoshop brush. It's how you use them.
You aren't any better then anyone here, and the opinions you have may be right for you, but that does not mean they are right for me or anyone else, so quit preaching them. That is a fact, you can't fight me there.
I never said you'd get banned, you will get in trouble for picking fights though. And yes, lashing out at me or anyone else because you didn't read a post correctly is very stupid.
Frankly, I'm sick of talking to you, you're very arrogent and on a high horse.

Sawyer
November 10th, 2006, 05:50 PM
Anyone who knows me knows as well that I'm an arrogant dick. There's really not much you can expect from me, hah. I'm not trying to cover up the fact I'm an *******, and you're not revealing anything I've kept discreet thus far. Downloaded brushes and macaroni noodles are very different things, by the way. Macaroni noodles used in an artistic way are materials, they are resources. Even though Photoshop Brushes are listed in Resources, that does not make them actual materials. Look at any set of downloadable abstract brushes on deviantART and tell me if the brushes don't exactly reflect the main image used in any signature or tag that involved said brushes. You are in no way a revelator (in reference to both my cockiness and brushes) and have no position in the statement you're making. I can understand your point of view, but I don't think you understand mine. My experience far exceeds yours, and of course there was a time when I was in your position, using downloaded brushes and also defending them. I understand what you're saying, but that does not make it true. Likewise with my statement, so we'll end this argument merely by saying neither of us are right or both of us are right.

I could stop now, but I’m like a 5 year old and I have to get the last word in when it comes to this crap… Oh, and being an arrogant prick isn’t something I’d go around bragging about.
Honestly, you’re only arguing with me because you thought I insulted your worthless crap, now you’re blowing things way out of proportion and insulting every graphic person on the whole dang forum. Noodles and Photoshop brushes are the same thing in this case, there’s no getting around it. Materials are materials and they are made to be used.
Uhh… so you make brushes for your own personal style… so? That means absolutely nothing. In no way shape or form does it make you an exceptional artist… it just means you can make brushes… In this instance, I’m not saying you aren’t a super |33+ Graphic maker, so don’t go having an aneurysm. I could really care less that you have experience, that as well means nothing. Don’t compare me to you, we’re totally different people so our morals don’t apply in this argument. I’m defending using brushes because art is art. You have no right to say what it is and isn’t, I’ve said it once, and I’ll say it over and over again. Not only that, but I have a right to make any statement I want, I have a right to exspress how I feel on a subject. In this instance, I was insulted for no reason at all, and now I'm arguing with you about something stupid when I have better things I should be doing.
I understand that you go to a big arsed graphic forum, sell your junk off the internet or what have you, but that means nothing here. Get off your high horse and quit taking a thread on a Pokemon form so seriously, it’s just for fun and your sucking that right out of it…

Yeah, Sawyer can be a prick at times, but you learn over time that its the internet and nobodies views and opinions really matter. Fighting on the internet is pointless and whoever does should be maimed and possibly killed, everyone be nice and save the trash talk for some other time.
Loveless you make an excellent point, just because your good with Photoshop, doesn't make you an "Artist". Pixel artists are more artists then us graphics makers, we rely on built in tools, they use the pencil tool and colors, going pixel by pixel, they are real artists.
Anyway, can I get my new sig rated?

loony: I can only say I wish the text weren't in the banners, or at least in different places and with different fonts. :/ I really don't like that font, but nonetheless, I like all of them except the Bowser Jr. and Red Samus one. The Bowser banner is absolute love.

Shinou Pearl: Ooooh, purdiful. The only thing I don't really like about it is the colors are kind of off, and the render kind of blends with the background. (I like banners that stand out.)

Would anybody care to rate/tell me what's off with this image? (Other then the fact that the render isn't all too clear due to it originally being a sketch. >.<)

It's in my siggy currently, and I'm not sure whether it looks all too great.

@Bijou
If you're planning to use a sketch for a signature, make a nice border to make it seem that the picture itself is in a fancy gallery. It could do some better lighting and depth. For sketch banners, the biggest thing you need to worry about, rather then renders or what-not, is the color: coordinating betwen two colors and blending them properly will give a very nice output.

The second one is much better, it has better depth and lighting. However, your render isn't the best quality and you should try to blend it in more. Color is fine, Gin's render has no color so you don't need to include any.

Rate~:

Made for a contest, I like it, it looks nice, only thing I regret is its size, I use the same one for all my banners that I make for myself now. But actually, this one was 2 width pixels off my default.

~http://img295.imageshack.us/img295/6181/spicyyk9.png
Whee, it's for another contest on another forum. It was my first time working with a pixel sprite, but it doesn't really look like the render was a pixel sprite anymore.

~Both Merope and Desu are names on other forums.

Loki
December 26th, 2006, 09:31 PM
Utami: Yeah, but the problem with the sketch was that there were big holes in the middle of the lines, (they're still there) and the image itself was blurry because the intelligent artist decided to make it pixelly and icky. (you can still see that too.) < <; *Excuses. Blergh.*

Yeah that render is my fault. >.< I blurred and sharpened it too much, and started to rush because I was stupid and used one layer to make the banner. *I always think it'll go faster and in the end it takes longer.* I should probably overlap the image and re-do it when I have time...

But anyhow, I lurves the Shino banner. x3 Although I think 'merope' could be in a better place. >.<

Yeah, the dragon doesn't look like a sprite anymore, that's for sure. xD I like the white ring things in the bottom left hand corner, but when there's an image in the middle with the background darkening as it goes out, I like symmetry, but that's just me.


I have way too much time on my hands right now. >.< I refrained from brushwork because I wanted the render's black hair to blend with the black background. >.< But I think it looks really plain that way.

Wattsie~

1st one: Oh my gosh. The yellow text. x_X It should definetely be a darker color, black perhaps to match the background. 7.10 If the text wasn't yellow I'd definetely like this one more then your 2nd one. It'd get a 9 or a 10 from me.

2nd one: I would lavu lavu it if the render was higher, the text wasn't... well... green, and the chinese characters (Super win, BTW) on the right, where it seems kind of blank. I really really love the background stuff though. The bordering technology looking shyuffs is amazing. The silhouette and motion blur looking things look pretty sweet as well. ^^ 8.10

Mikuru-chan~

1st one: I've never been pleased with the color selection, it just doesn't blend or match, but if you had to pick that color, it was a damn good mesh. 7.10

2nd one: Ehhhmagaaawd, Melancholy of Suzumiya Haruhi? Or whatever. xD *was looking it up on wiki a few days ago* I like the background and the usage of colors, but the render itself looks a little... sharpened? Too contrasted? Hmm, not sure, but the render is the only thing that bugs me, and the fact that you can only read the 'M' in the text, but that might've been an effect that was targeted. 8.10

3rd one: Dei-chan. 10.10 xDD No seriously, you have NO idea how jealous I was when I saw that set. I was like, *grab....run...far...away* xD

4th one: Mai gawd Miki-san, how DO you do what you do? Woah, there were lot's of you's and do's in that sentence! 8D *shot* Anyhow, I love the glow work, though it seems a little lopsided as opposed to the render. The text could probably be place in a more strategic area as well, but it's still awesome. 9.10

5th one: GAAAH, how did you do those line thingys?! *has been trying to do those for like... a year now? Yeah I think it's about a year* 10.10, I really like this one, the text is a little hard to read, but it's not impossible, and the render itself doesn't really suit my tastes but still. It's a pretty rockin banner.

6th one: HOLEH- Yeah all my comments are pretty much going to start like that. xD I absolutely A~DORE the color effects. It makes the render stand out, love the font and love the background. It's an all around 10.10.

7th one: I'm not as crazy about this one, it seems very LJ'ish, and I personally prefer LJ'ish stuff in avatar's not banner's. I see similar brushes though. I think I might have the same set, I've just never used it. xD 7.10

Beezhoo~~

Gawd your stuff sucks. >O *shot*

The render occupies too much of the space and the scanlines weren't needed in the background. The squiggly lines on the left side seem pretty random, they have no flow as the other lines you made. The sig is still satisfactory despite the problems, 7/10.

@ Angle-san
Aww~! That's such a cute render ^^ Must... Resist from poking little Naruto xD Ehem, well, it is very simple, but I think it's nice. I don't like the way that the W over laps the rest of the word, though, as it makes it slightly hard to read... Other than that, very cute ^^ 7.8/10

@ Conman:
Scar theme - The colours are nice, and match the image. Hmm... The image... It looks to be horizontally stretched. So it's quite awkward to look at. Text placement in the banner is pretty good, but for the avatar, maybe shrink the text that says 'scarred for life', and get rid of the bit that says 'Conman'. 7.6/10
Some guy I don't know theme xD - Again, the colours match with the image. But there's, again, a problem with the render on the banner is that it looks stretched. The image in the avatar is a bit better, 'cept that the edges are pixel-y. And three exclamation marks on 'WANTED!!!' is a bit much xD Shrink that text a little... Otherwise, it's a little bit better 7.8/10
Zolo theme - This, in my opinion, is the best out of the three of them. The colours are good, the background is nice, but again, the image in the banner looks slightly stretched. The text could have been placed on the left instead, as it looks awkward with all that empty space there. The avatar is very good, especially the text placement ^^ 8.1/10

@ [MikeGTS]
Awesome. I love the Sharingan effect, it looks really nice. Maybe make the whole wallpaper look better, though. Like, make the flames a liittle bit more subtle, or something... I don't really know what to suggest xP 7.8/10

@ raubie
It's a fairly good banner, like the colours match and stuff. But the image takes up such little space O_o And the edges of the text looks rough... Yeah... O_o 7.4/10

@ Zoom
Looks pretty good ^^ My only complaint would be that the edges of the render are quite rough, as I can still see some white pixels around the image. Oh yeah, and the font... I don't really like it. Change it O_o Other than that, it's really good ^^ 8.4/10

I'm not asking for a rate, by the way...

EDIT: Never mind... rate my current theme, if you please xD

EDIT EDIT: I seriously have to stop changing my mind... Okay, I am in no need of a rate xDD

Jyukai:nice animation i wish i could make animations but i cant 8/10 and the sig its simple but quite nice 6/10

Hey Sawyer, just a question, do you make all your banners from scratch?

But anyway, I really really like the second one, I don't know why, I just do. I think it's the color scheme, and the feeling of simplicity it gives. ^^ I still think you'd do well with some border's though. xD;

9.5 . 10 for the second one~

Zoom: I like the effects on the render, however, I'm not too hot on the background, because it doesn't really go with the render itself.

7.10

Sawyer; I really like your banners. Both of the ones you posted look great. They're simple, yet very pleasing to look at ^^ Unlike Jyukai, I think they'd look better without borders xP 10 for both.

Yutss; ... Er, it doesn't look like it's been made freehanded, and it hurts my eyes. Sorry, I don't really know what to say...

.-'Infernal Hylian'-.; The banner looks like you took an image, and stuck a border around it. In other words, I don't think any real editing was made. If you only have Paint available, you could have at least 'sprussed' up the border, or something. The small logo thingy is kind of cool... But it looks as if the N stands out more than any other letter O_o 5 for the banner, 6 for the logo thing.

Yami_Zidane; Okay, I think this one could use a border xD The mosaic effect is interesting... But the text placement doesn't look so good. I mean, there's too much of a 'gap' between "Yami" and "Zidane"... It looks weird, to me anyway. Other than that, it's fairly good. 7/10.

Ehehe... I guess I have one thing that I really want people to rate:
http://i16.photobucket.com/albums/b39/Pikabloo/Forum%20Sets/foxmccloud3.png
It's my latest signature. I saw this tutorial, and felt like trying it xP I think it ended up looking good (I thought I would end up messing the whole thing up >x<). It's the first time I've used C4D's and gradient maps... I doubt I'll make more than 2 other banners in this way, but I thought it was interesting to make a change for once xP

ChocoFlamingo

Just what's with the ASA font?

Whadda you mean what's with it?

The fact that the inside is transparent?

Loki
June 14th, 2007, 07:59 AM
ChocoFlamingo: I think he means, either: What's it doing there, or What does it mean?

I'm asking, what is it doing there? xD; I think it would've looked a lot better with just that teal as the solid color without the stroke, and by placing it in a place less obscured, the banner would look a little more balanced, and less busy all in one place.

However, the only thing I don't like about it is the text itself, the rest is wonderful, and I love that style!

8/10. I think a more curly, less imposing font would've been a nicer choice. Maybe much lowered opacity to match the rest of the style.

Angle-san: DDD: Why do all you peoples work with the styles I can't?? (Why am I always stuck with vector?? Dx)

Anyway, I do love both of them, and disregarded my hatred for Ash, I do like the Ash banner better. The reason? I like the colors, the text placement, and almost everything about it, especially the green. It's just... ASH. *twitch*

Right-o, but I won't dock you points for that, 10/10. I didn't really get a good look at the first one, so I don't think I'll rate that one, sorry. ^^; (Besides, Renamon bugs me more then Ash... which is saying something. >.<)

Sawyer: It was an old post, but I dunno if you should tell people to rate your's if you're not rating anyone else's. :/ You certainly didn't say anything about mine after I rated your's.
--

Believe it or not, this is one of my first banners I've made without a border. *shot for being stupid* I've been so paranoid about having them, so I'd like some thoughts on it. I'm really happy with the way it turned out, considering I searched in vain for a good Hinamori picture and ended up with an IchigoxRukia picture. xD;

I don't know what I can say about it as I'm more of a banner and avatar rater and don't know much about doing things with real humans, but the eye in the middle is awesome. I don't know why, but I've always liked close-ups of eyes.

And I can't tell if it was three images slapped together, or one render put onto a homemade background.

Three images slapped together: 7.5/10
Render && Homemade background: 9.5/10, I can't say I really like the bottom-most image.

Thank you for your rate.
It's taken me forever to get to this state and yet I'm still not good with it.

Now it's time I rate your banner: I'm a fan of vectors indeed I like the use of the brush set your using.
9.5/10

Pikabloo
June 15th, 2007, 03:00 AM
Angle-san: I like both of your banners. The first one has nice flow, and good colours. The effects are nice too. Not a big fan of the text, though... And maybe add more lighting? 9.5/10

For the second one, I like the colours =D The text is nice, too, but I really don't like the text with 'Angle' on the top left hand corner. The font looks a bit too distracting. But still, good lighting and good effects, again. 9/10

ChocoFlamingo: I don't know why, but I really, really, really like it. But I also think that the text could be moved where it would balance out the banner. It's a bit too busy around the center of the banner. 9/10

Jyukai: I know I already said it in the "Rate the THEME Above You" thread, but I think that banner is awesome =D *can't be bothered to say more about it* 9.5/10

Thomas-san: I'm not too good with rating things like this, so I might not know what I'm talking about O_o Erm... The images don't really look like they flow together nicely. I think it looks like three images put on top of each other, but I doubt that's true... I like the eye xP 7/10

The Shinji one is also amazing. xDD Although it looks like, "Eat Bob" to me. ^^;; 9.5/10 for the "Eat Bob" thing. But I like the text, and the positioning is great.

Hinamori one, the colors are a bit too contrasting and darker for my tastes, but it's definetely a well shaded coloring job. 10.10 because you're beastage at coloring. :D

I think the colour one stands out more, but the text should be like the text of the first signature. It's nice, so great work!

Anyway, this is a banner made for a Draco/Ginny Harry Potter fic. Experimenting with black & white and then a splash of colour, which I don't normally do. Not super-high-quality pictures but I did the best I could.

Vanilla Kitsune: You're getting good =o, the manga images are very pretty, and the pictures of link are in their selective colors. The first one; I don't really like the blue tint in it, and the lightening of it should usually be in only one spot, and also, the image looks stretched out to me 5/10. The second, the coloring is good, all I don't like are the horizontel lines 7/10. Third, I like the layer of the color fill, and the colorings good, though, I would focus on making better crops 8/10 Banner; me likey =]. Though, the color scheme doesn't really match with the picture of link, though it is well done 7/10.

Angle-san: Well, I can't say much, but those banners are pretty good, but the guy creeps me out SOOOO MUCHHHHHH D=. Though, I would focus more on the text, I don't really like it that much, and it's un-noticable. People would be like. OHHH PRETTY BANNER, WHAT THERE'S TEXT o.o?

. Some new things ~

http://i103.photobucket.com/albums/m155/Jelliebeanies/satokosig.png
My Satoko from Higurashi no Naku Koro Ni banner, I manga-colored it all on my own, and it took me a long time, no stealing. While, I used a texture on the heart to make it stand out a little bit less, and this is an example of my new shading routine that I am doing now, it's a secret recipe ;D.

http://i103.photobucket.com/albums/m155/Jelliebeanies/mikuruclockheader.png
Other header, just a brush, a lighten texture with a brush, and text =/.

http://i103.photobucket.com/albums/m155/Jelliebeanies/miki_chan_misdreavus.png
A grungy-ish banner I made for a fanclub, I tried an urban, city, cool style, but I don't really know about it. But I used some vector brushes and a pattern in it. While also experimenting with the text white bar thingy, with the motion blur filter.

There's text on Angle-san's banner? o o;

I don't see it...

Vanilla Kitsune: I like the banner! Although, Link looks a little bit squished, and the background doesn't really compliment the render itself, as the focus isn't on Link, and the colors don't really match. The text looks a little off, because of the random cut off of the 'g' and the 'y', a border would've looked nice, and perhaps a different font and color for the text.

I give it a 7/10

The avatar in the middle is really great though! I love love love it. ^^ Although, again, border would be nice.

Miki-chan~ Yaaay, I've seen a lot of those already. xD; Some of those avatars are a little too dark for my tastes, as it's hard for me to see what's actually in them. ^^; The Mion banner thing looks awesome, because of the dots used to shade the manga crop. >D I love dots.

Anyway, here's mine that I'd like some rating on.

And I like the gradient effect on the border. But I don't really like those thick, diagonal, black/white/green lines. They just seem to stand out a bit too much, and removes some of the focus from the render. -.2 for that D:

Jyukai: Wow. ._. I LOVE that banner it's beyond awesome.
<3 I'm jealous. XD; I don't really have any crits for it. 10/10. I heart it. <3

Shiranui: I love the grungy effects. I could never make grunge work for me. You make it look awesome. XD I prefer the first one more than the second. I never really liked purple.. and brownish-orange fits it more. 10/10.

Alright. Hope I did that right. ^^;

Shira-chan : Lulz, yeah the lines are there because the picture actually cuts off where the lines are. *shot* So I had to hush it up somehow. *shotshot* Thanks though. xD

Ho-kies.

I personally like both of them. *shot/nothelping* But I'd have to say the brown one looks nice, because I've actually seen that render used three times with three different people so far, and they've all used a more purplish style with it. Who is it, the render? :O Who merits such amazing popularity? :OO

I too, like the grunge effect, and the lighting is as usual, very very hawt. The border looks like it sort of matches better with the brown one.

Although, I think it would've looked nice if you'd put something a little heavier on the right side to balance it out.

Guh, joo r master of graphics. *i r nawt wortheh*

Vanilla Kitsune: xDD Thank you!

With your Link coloring, you've slightly confused me. Heart? :O Where? What heart? Say heart what? *shotshot for lame jokes* I like the coloring job, but as I said earlier, the color scheme used on the background around the manga image don't really match. If the blue were green, I'd absolutely love it. ;D Sooo... 8/10 for a hawt coloring job and nice brush/texture/whatever job.

MII-CHAN: LULZ I'VE SEEN ALMOST ALL OF THOSE. I've rated Tere-chan's set before, but I shall state it again: Holeh shizzo joo gotz'ta be good to work with those crazy crappy quality Naruto screenshots. *shot* But you covered up the left Haku picture a little too much with text, and the font in the lower right hand corner is kind of inconspicuous. You use the grid a lot, which isn't so great, but otherwise, everything looks really good in that banner. (Now I want a Haku set. D:)

I've always found the Replica set to be a little too dark. It's hard to see the image on my color settings.

As I said, I <3 the Keith Daniels one. :O Now if only that Keith Daniel dude were Hiroto, from alice nine., then it'd be 10000/10 *shot*

ZOMG BRIDGE TO TEREBITHIA?! :OO THAT MOVIE MADE ME CRY SO BAD. I DUN KNOW WHY, CAUSE I DIDN'T LIKE IT AND THE PLOT WAS LIKE, "RACE YOU TO THE END!" But that's a good banner anyway. You're good at blending images together. :O

The Penelo one is actually kind of hard to see. :// It's too bright, but it's not ugly, it's varie varie good~ It's just kind of hard to tell that that's Penelo.

MIKI-CHAN: OMG I FORGOT TO ASK JOO. HOW DO JOO USE- Oh well I guess I shouldn't ask that here. GO TO THE PHOTOSHOP Q & A'S THREAD MIKI-CHAN. *shot*

Vanilla Kitsune -
Thanks ^^

Link looks so kawaii~ Anyways, I like the colouring and the background, and, er... I don't really know what else to suggest. I'm not really good with rating manga colourings ^^;;

Mika -
Lots of banners to rate... Yay~ xD

1 - I've rated this before a long while ago... But I'll rate it again anyway. It looks awesome. But I'm with Mizu, methinks the left Haku image is covered with too much text. Furthermore, the text on the bottom right corner stands out a bit too much. Other than that, the colours are smexy, and I think the grid thing looks great.

2 - I don't really think the green goes with the character's red hair... Plus I think it's too dark, and the focal area isn't really too clear, with the text scattered around like that.

3 - Arg, the white D: It's a bit too white/empty-ish in the middle... But still, it looks great xD I love the left side of the banner, but the right side seems a little too pale O_o

4 - Again, I agree with Mizu, you're good at image blending. I've never seen that movie before, though.

5 - Looks a bit like the Haku one, 'cept it's red O_o I don't have much to say, besides the fact that the text on the bottom left corner of the banner stands out way too much. It draws the focus away from the image. Maybe lower it's opacity, or make it a little bit smaller... I like the glittery effects, though.

6 - Very, very bright. Perhaps too bright. The image looks okay, I guess, but the background is definitely too bright. And it looks empty on the right side.

Mizu -
xDD Har har har, I thought that it was because of that.*feels smart for some reason*

It's Neku Sakuraba from Square Enix's upcomng DS game, Subarashiki Kono Sekai, or It's a Wonderful World

Ok, guys. I tried my luck at rendering a hard-ish picture to see what would happen. It turned out alright for a first try. Just remember, I've seriously never even attempted to render an image, so don't be too harsh. I'll try again with the same picture to see if I do better later on, but here it is:

http://i31.photobucket.com/albums/c369/Teresa113/ShanaRender.png

I know there's spots I didn't get, but my photoshop was acting up, and wouldn't let me erase them, and that spot up there in the right corner. Sorry about that ^^'

Loki
August 9th, 2007, 08:34 AM
Did you use the tutorial I gave you? xD

Anyway, I don't think you saved it quite right, as I can't see the transparent parts. (Yes people's, I'm aware you have to save the png image and open it in photoshop, but you try it, and you'll see it doesn't work.... well, it doesn't work for me anyway.)

I can see some parts in which her hair's been chopped off though. :x Hoe noes Chi-chan, that's baaad. A good rendering job means that the image itself is, at the very least, still whole and in one piece. xD I personally think it's better if there's white spots then if the image looks like it went through the butcher's shop. But it looks pretty good for a first try, from what I can see. ^^

Chikara
August 9th, 2007, 09:42 AM
Yes, yes I did XD When I looked at that picture up there again, I cringed D:

I tried the same picture again, and I know it turned out better. I'll check if I still have it.

No, I deleted that one. But I did this yesterday:

http://i31.photobucket.com/albums/c369/Teresa113/patrickcopy.jpg
I did it for my friend. I rendered it, and used all this basic not-confusing graphics on it. I know, her arm looks weird, that's how the picture was ._. AND my photoshop likes glitching up, so it wouldn't let me erase those parts that obviously need erasing. I have to work on remembering what to save certain things as XD

Porygon: Not bad for a first try. I don't know what the original image looked like, but it doesn't seem like a lot has been done other than some filters. The size is uneven and I think it looks somewhat plain.

I'd resize it so it's square, give it nice background, and maybe some lightly applied textures to make it more dynamic. I think it's also best to not have text, but that's just a personal preference. (Since you said you're new with Photoshop, I'd say start practicing with the Lasso tool to crop images -- it makes things so much easier!)

Helvecta: Wow, wow, wow! Very nice work. I love your colouring -- I can't wait to see this finished. I'm something of a rookie at vectoring, especially on such a large scale, but I think you're doing an awesome job. <3

Thank you! ^^ [they all look the same though haaaa~] the shinshi doumei cross ones anyway.

Omigosh Shira-chan, the text on that banner is AMAZING.

+ The text. I love every last thing about the text. Placement. Font. Placement. Size. Placement. Arrangement. I love everything! >D
+ The textures! <333 I love the textures!!
+ The C4D in the background is great! It's the red glowy stuff, yazzumz? :O Do you make your own C4D's, or do you mooch them like me? Because that C4D matches really well! You incorporated it into the banner with such awesome-ness! <3
+ I love what you did with the texture on the render itself, the cutting out here and there.
+ Lighting! I love that red thing-y! Is that a camera flash filter? :O
+ POP-UP EFFECT, FTW.

- The only minus, I think it would've been triple as awesome if you'd slightly slightly textured the text, and made the texture on the stroke-y thing stand out a little more.

Still a solid [10.10] though!

Is it just me, or is the version in your sig sharper then the one in the img tags? o O; Or do I need new contacts? *shot'd*

edit-ching!: AHAHAHA. Smaller icon dump. It's my first try doing any actual graphical alteration to a picture that's not of anime! :O WHUT NAO? That's right. Before, I never even touched the images of real people used in my sets, if it weren't obvious.

Thanks for the comment ^^ I still think the C4Ds look off, though :| Maybe I'll try taking some of it off (I have like 6 layers of C4D x_x;; )

The C4Ds are the red-ish thingies in front of the character. I 'borrow' other people's C4Ds xD I don't even know how to make them.

Which red thingy? O_o The red thingy next to the character's head is just a brush stroke with a soft brush.

I was going to add texture to the text... But I was too lazy (plus I made it really late at night).

Har har, I sharpened the banner after I posted it here, so I forgot to change it. So no, you don't need to change your contacts xD

---

Those guys are pretty O_o The avatars are good, too! xD Yeah... They look very awesomes. I don't really have anything bad to say about them. No, really, they look great.

Yeah, the orange > purple gradient map is so awesome... Like, it can completely change the colours of the image, yet make it look very nice at the same time.

Chikara: Simple is always nice and refreshing sometimes. But imo the a's need to be lined up.

I'm going to give you crits, okay? D: So if you don't want to see them, then don't read ahead. Or at least, don't read the -'s.

- The text is rather large, and positioned in an awkward way.
- The render doesn't take up all that much space in the banner itself.
- The render doesn't stick out, and actually kinda blends with the pink background. :<
- I think in some way, a border of SOME sort should've been incorporated. Maybe like, adding white to the edges to fade it out and make it look less 'boxy'.

+ The text stands out, AND matches the background
+ The background is nice, the brushes are light and not to "up-your-face".
+ The sparkle glitter stuff is fun. :3

8/10 - Because all around, it looks nice, there are just some details that could be smoothed out.

I'm too lazy to rate the Mokona one right now. x_x; Apologies. I will say though, that I feel that you blended the render a little too strongly with the background. </3

May I ask for a rating as well? 8D I made this for Marz. <3 BUT, BEFORE YOU SAY ANYTHING ABOUT HOW PIXELLY THE PICTURE IS... *yes I know. I don't need that pointed out a thousand times. :<*

Hazuki -
1. It's very preety, and pink. Erm, text looks off, though. Like, I don't think it looks well covering part of her head. The background is very lovely, and all the colours go together nicely. It could use a border, though.

2. The render is very nicely blended into the background. However, the text stands out a bit too much, and I think it could be moved off to the right a bit, since the right side of the banner looks ever-so-slightly empty. Once again, a border would be nice...

Mizuki -
Is that Lucy from Fairy Tail? O: Very nice... But methinks spatter + sparkle don't look too good together, but that's just my opinion. And I think that a slightly lighter shade of blue would go better with the image. But other than that, I luffles the pop-up ness, and the clipping mask to the left is nicely positioned ^^

Comments pleesh. Tis my first(-ish) manga colouring ^^

Brandon-kun: They ish preeety :3 For some reason, I like the red orb-y thingies... Anyways, all the effects and stuff are really awesomes. Oh, and the colours are great. I really like the last one xD Some of the Naruto ones look odd, though... Like, the first and fourth ones have too much empty space (I think). And the red orb-y thing on Shikamaru looks a bit too big. But it's a pretty manga colour ^^

Moar stuffs from me:
Gray manga colouring:

Gray is so darn lovable. I finally found a decent picture of him that I could colour. And now I feel like looking for more colour-able Gray images... And I really need to stop using the same textures over and over again.

... Uh, thank you?

It's actually, like, three different textures, by the way.

Meh, I was planning on using that as my banner when I get bored of my Natsu one... So, sorry about that, Miz ^^;;


Oh, and I made another one, like right after I made that one:

Wowie, Shiranui, your work is ah-mazing. O; Your thread is stuffed with awesome graphics too. I love those manga colorings xD ...there really isn't any critisism to be given. o__o;
Brandon-kun, those icons are really nice! Especially the Ashley Tisdale one, and the two Dawn ones. Nice choice of pictures!

Well, I'm not -really- new to graphics, but I guess I'm new to them here. My style is really different from everyone here I guess. I use a lot of animation and such. );
Yay for concrit. Rip apart my signature 8D There really isn't anything to be said about my avatar since it isn't special... so yeah, ignore it?
There's also another version of my signature with texture, but I can't post it yet. Not enough posts in my post count D: -brick'd-
If anyone wants to see more of my (ugly) graphics, lemme know through msn or something. (Personally, I wouldn't want my eyes to bleed.) Most have images to belong to other sites and I don't think I can post them...
Eww I babble on too much. Shortened: Everyone here rocks, rate my current set + I'm lame.

September 18th, 2007, 01:40 PM
Ah tis totally fine! Cause like I said you know. Having the same theme would be sort of like, 'wtf?' and like, izza your picchur in the first place, SO NO APOLOGIES HERE.

AND.

There goes another asplosion Shira-chan. Might as well get some kind of like 'frequent visitor' pass to the hospital, yazz? *SHOT'd*

BUT HOMAIGAWD THIS ONE IS TEH SMEX TOO.

I love Gray's outfit. 8D when it's there anyway. He hasn't done any exhibitioning for quite some time. :< onoz! </3!

Ahhh one of these days, Gray is going to rule the world, and Natsu's going to be like, the official ruler but since he'll never be around Gray'll do everything since he's like, Erza's slave and she won't let him off for anything. [/random]

I love the way you color things. 8D KEEP UP THE HEAVENLY WORK SHIRA-CHAN! *thumbs upppp*

And I'm so jealous of the way you color skin, the shading is like, perfect and everything. The text in the background and such is amazing as well! <3

Asplosions are ALWAYS good! >D

I get the feeling that I like, creep the living soul out of you. D: Shall I like, tone down on the fangirly-ness, or am I just creeping you out even more with a runaway imagination? *SHOT'D* Or am I just being all super self-concious at a like, super-way-too-late time?

And then here's a forum banner I made; I removed the forum name as per PC's advertising rule, but it's my first time using such a contrasting gradient for a background, and I personally really like it, but is it like... distracting? xD; Comments appreciated~

omai! I love the Naruto one! 8O The text is teh smex, and the double usage of the picchur is a very nice touch. The foggy cloudy-things are really cool too, and the color scheme is real nice. ^^ |10||10|

Real person! 8O Anyway, he'shawt I do think it's kind of empty on the left. xD; But, I don't know how that could be helped without taking the focus off the render- a main thing that I don't really like about it is that the text is so punyful, even when there's all that space to be balanced out. xD It still looks really good though, especially since you don't use real people in your graphics all that much (or at least I haven't seen them) and the render looks real clean. ^^ |8.9||10|

oh.....pfft. that was nothing. lol.

i just used the sparks brush in GIMP, and kept using clipping masks and blurred some layers, then sharpened a few layers, and then added some colors with brushing, *one color at a time lol* at "color" blend range at around 30-40% opacity.

hope it helped. *and i hope i wasn't confusing*

I'm aware of that awkward little dot of blue up on the top. Don't remind me it's there >>'

Well I made another very simple and plain banner-ish thing. I'm not quite sure what it is because I usually add a border to my banners... but I didn't ._.
That and it's pretty much ginornous-ish

So this is pretty much whatever you want it to be~

Well either way, yeah, please rate. x3

Marthmaster: Wow. :O Your banners are omg-amazing! <3 I love that style. Since the only one I can see right now is your current banner, I'll rate that one;

Lighting is great, background is great, brushing is great, render is great, the blend and matching is great, the text is... okay. And the border isn't all that great, but it's not terrible. *yeah I know, bland rating. Dx* |9||10|

Chikara ::

Hmm... It's actually not too bad ^^ Very simple, yes, but I think simplicity looks best with that image you used. The colours are good as well, although as mizuki said, it's just a tad too light. But other than that, it's good :3

мizuκi ::

Erm, yeah, the rendering looks... Weird o.o

But other than that, the banner looks good. The background in the side with Saber on it looks a bit too messy, maybe you can blur it out to add depth, and to put more focus on the render. Although I love the right side of the banner. Text positioning is very nice, and the tiny stuff underneath, and the script text looks cool.

Eheh, and I think it could do without the outer glow on the render... (or did you put that there to hide the bad rendering?)

Anywhoo... Colours match (but maybe add a biiiit of yellow to the background?), and, well, that's pretty much it. 8.5/10

As for your Ishida banner, I luuuuurve the colours <3 And, er... I dunno o.o

-shot'd-

Lawls. But really, I don't know what else to say. Hmm... Oh, yeah. The background looks simple, and I think it's better off that way. And it matches with the render, and stuff. Although the white to the left side and the light blue about his arm looks a bit too bright, or that's just me.

And then there's the text. Oh gawd, the text is BEYOND AWESOME. I <33333 the text. I love the actual content of the text. The positioning. The fonts. Colours. Absolutely everything. I want you're text positioning skills, luls. 9/10

Shiranuiiiii;

Ishida Banner; Guwahhh, I'm glad you like the text too! x3 totally didn't rip it off of some other graphic artist Thank you! ^^

Sabarr; Yesh. The render was crazy wonked. It probably looks weird because I tried to fix it... *facedesk* Like with the ribbons. (Woah they were UGLY.) So I had to blur it, and then that turned out bad, but I was like, "Eh. Whatever." But the reason I added the outerglow was so that the sword would stick out a little more. I sorta regret putting the outer glow there. *ah, too bad I didn't save a .psd*

Noo bannarz;

OMG trade you for your awesome color scheme-choosing skills. Dx

That Gazille banner is teh smex. I love the lined paper effect. Makes it look like a doodle. That would be an amazing doodle. O_O Anyway, I like the gray brush or... whatever used to make the paper look crinkled, but I don't really like the text 'iron dragon'. I think a more scritchy font could've been used, or something, but the numbers/date are great. |8.5||10| The whole B&W is cool, but there's no color to focus on. Dx;

Roxaaaasss... :x Amazing. I never would've thought of it, but the purple is amazing with Roxas. The depth is good, and the incorporation of the render with the background is excellent. The border goes really well, and the only thing I don't really like is how pixelly the render is. xD; The text is cool too, and I like how you can't see the R but you know what the word is anyway. *tried to get that effect on the Ishida banner, but uh, it definitely didn't work.*

And I know you didn't ask, but your Loki set pwns the universe.

It's alright to take ideas from other artists (I guess) that's what I do all the time. I'm kidding... not >.>

Oh right, cause I usually use either stroke or outer glow when I want to hide bad rendering (note: Mushishi banner xD) So that's why the ribbons are all blurry like that. I didn't notice that earlier... xD

Luls, I used a tutorial for both of my banners >.>

When I first saw someone with a similar doodle-type banner with Ichigo in it, I was like, "OMGWTF, THAT GUY DREW THAT? D:" Then I found the link to the tutorial. Eheh. The paper stock image I used was already crinkled, but I guess it just didn't show up in the end. Oh well.

The Roxas one was originally blue... Then I added a gradient map, then I just fell in love with the colours~ Yeah. I literally just sat there, staring at the screen. Aaaaaaah, the pixely render. Yes, it sucks D: For some reason, it turned pixely when I rotated it just a tiny bit. I might try fixing that later, though. I like the text too, even though I just totally ripped the idea from the many banners I have seen that do a similar thing.

Oh, yes, the Loki banner. I just couldn't resist colouring that panel with him. I was going to ask for comments on that too, but I dunno... I forgot?

-shot'd-

Oh yeah, I forgot. Comments on these two please (the first one isn't quite done, but, meh)~:

Oh wow a vector! should've been in bed hours ago but ends up posting here anyway

musashi; I like it muchly! It's really good, but the line thickness is the same throughout. It's a good idea to make it vary on the light source; according to this inking tutorial anyway. Is this your first vector?

Lokiiiiiii; Hmm... His skin looks kind of strange, because I'm thinking that at the position he's in, there should be some kind of light or shadow on his cheek bone. But it's not finished so yeah. Did you use a tablet to color/shade this? Because if not then... It's official by word of the Great God of PC. You are amazing. And you're still amazing even if you did do it with a tablet. The way you shaded his jacket is so accurate and blends real nicely.

And then there's his hair too! <3 The way you used the colors is great! x3 It's minor, but I'm pretty sure that Loki's sunglasses/things are a brighter blue, but that's hardly important.

First vector, no tutorials~

-is proud of that-

Ahaha. And it's Mushishi, not Musashi :x

Aah, I feel like looking for vector-making tutorials now.

And sadly, I don't have a tablet. I just used the lasso tool to select the area I want shaded, then I paint bucket-ed in the colour. It's a different shading style from what I usually do, so it took me forever. But I just looked around artsy places and anime images for ideas on shading. Gah, I'm going to die before I finish that Loki colouring o.o

Oh, and thank you for the comments~

It's certainly no where near as good as Adrenaline's, but what do you guys think? Rate/Comment/Critique, please! ^^

Awsome... 9/10 (it would of been better in a smaller size, but that's just my oppinion.)
Do you use brushes in your sigs?
I preffer the one with less Orbs, and the effect on his right arm is beautifuly done.

It would have been nice if you had bothered to comment on my stuff >_>

er, well I'm sorry. <_<

BreD; Yes I use brushes in my sigs. Lot's and lot's of brushes. xD; And yeah, I was thinking of re-sizing it, but I didn't want to kill the details. I might re-size it later and see how it looks, because it's size is bothering me as well. Thanks for the comments and the rating~

As for your work...

Star Nebula; Did you do this from scratch? It's really cool, I like the color effects on the planets and the rings on the lower left hand planet are detailed and just look awesome.

Zoro; Is teh smex. xD I'm not really a fan of the size of Zoro compared to the background, perhaps if you'd not sized him down quite so much. The text and the background are nicely done though, I like that style. ^^

Espeon; Gahhh, blurring of sprites. *pet peeve* Or whatever happened to the edges of that poor sprite. Anyway, you did a great job, considering sprites are annoying to incorporate into sigs, let alone have the banner focus right on them. The focus is good, but the size is a bit large for such a small render. The text is well placed, and the mosaic fits really well.

And that's all I can say for now, because Dinner calls.

It's nice! ^^
I preffer the ava for some reason...
But i like what you did. Possibly try blending the render (guy) in abit to make it look like you didn't just make a BG and then add a render.

OK how about my new ava and sig? rate/comment/tips? ^^
EDIT: I went for the whole underwater thing for my sig
But the ava is seperate. Same sprite tho.

Mizuki: On a random note, I really love looking at your banners. So pretty! <3


BreD:

I like the colour scheme on your first set, but it's awfully bright. If it was toned down, it'd be much easier on the eyes. They also don't seem to match as well as they could have. On the banner, I'd make the guy more off-center and re-arrange the text. If you want your signature on there, that's fine, but I don't think it should compete with the image itself. Maybe make the "Super Kick" bigger and use a different font? The avatar is really hard to see what it's off -- less textures and a more prominent image would make it a lot easier. I'd also recommend making it square.

On your second/current set, it's still somewhat bright in areas, but here it contrasts even more with the darker colours. The colours are good, but maybe a little less of an intense purple. I think the crops could be a little better, but they aren't bad. Again, the signature/name is drawing a little too much attention to itself and it takes away from the work. The only other thing I can really see is the image quality -- parts such as his shirt and hand look kind of grainy. Maybe save them a different way. ("Saving for web" reduces size, but retains quality, if your program has the feature.)

Keep it up, though. It's some pretty good stuff.
