"isn't your drill the one that will pierce the heavens, the earth, and THROUGH TO TOMORROW?"


Hi guys, turns out I kind of know how to make things!! I've always wanted to post my stuff on here but I guess I was too self conscious but anyway here goes. I also can't do CSS so I'll just leave this stuff here. It's ordered from oldest to newest but some of this stuff is really old.

Also, please don't use anything without asking first!

I had my thoughts when I first read the title of the thread that there would be at least ONE Gurren Lagann reference here. So what's the first character I see? Kamina of course!

Your drill is the drill that's going to pierce the heavens and through to tomorrow.

Call me biased, but that one with Kamina was easily one of my favorites from what you posted from the older six. It's composition is simple, yet elegant. The colors flow and match very well with the color pallet of the character the piece is focusing on.

But at the same time, I frowned when you said the rest of them were disliked by you. I thought they were very well designed, and the focus remained on the characters depicted, which can sometimes be lost if the artist goes overboard. Yours, however, do not do this.

Overall, your art is very well focused, and the coloration is pleasant to the eyes. Great work here :D !

Oh my goodness, I just love that banner. <33 Those effects are very well-placed, and that blurred background really adds to the touch. Also, great job on the color. One thing, though; maybe you could have added a curve or two? That way, those textures would have been a little more blend-in with the whole picture. I'm really liking your icons, too, by the way! Next time, perhaps you could experiment with different sizes?

/sniff so sweet thank you <3 I always tend to be really self conscious when posting stuff I made and I realize I'm always more critical on myself than others with everything which is bad ;~; thank you for your comment!!

Thank you!! n_n I really really had thought I had a collection of icons I had made but they have been lost in the abyss of the computer, I'll try to find them again! I only had the ones that I posted because they were on the same psd + folder and they were more recent. I also think it's interesting you pointed out the cat one, I believe that is when I first discovered c4ds and textures :3 For some reason that one was in a different folder than the rest of my old ones (I think half of them from that time are gone D but I dug up the file and the computer says I made it in 2011?! I didn't think it was that old ;; haha

Thank you!! Idk if you were wondering but I created the line with shape tool and used a clipping mask of the sig itself on it idk if you knew or not

My internet decided it didn't really want to function yesterday so I made some new icons!




Oh, and the one I'm using now!


I tried to do some experimenting with just colors and not using so many textures.

Woo, also first sig in a while:

I'm mad at myself for not commenting on this gallery sooner. :(

Some of your work in here is really stellar. I say some but I really mean all. These are so mindfully created and you've really brought out the best in each piece. Like Endless, I am absolutely in love with that cat. Overall, you've definitely shown that you have a deft hand with colors, application, positioning, and most other fundamental elements of graphic design.

Nominated for featured gallery!

Gosh, thank you both for commenting! And don't be mad at yourself haha. Thanks for the nomination too, I'm so honored ;_;

I might update again tomorrow, since it's the last day of summer I want to do some stuff while I still have the time (rip me).

It depends on the tag, however, with most of them I started with the render and make the backgrund based off of it. Many backgrounds are just many layers of blurring/textures and I don't think any of them are just copy/pasted. The exception is the cat photo and Madoka. Also, I don't use renders in my avatars.

Gosh I really wish I had seen this thread earlier!

I really enjoy all your tags, especially the more later ones at the bottom.
And like the others your cat tag is just gorgeous. Like the cat is cute by itself, but the added bokeh, c4dish and lighting effects make it look that more appealing.
Your icons too are also adorable and really appealing! - especially the PokeSpec ones :3

Hope you keep up the amazing work! Can't wait to see you post more work in the future :D
