Hihi, Kouhai here. :>
 
I've dabbled in photoshop (and GIMP) before, but stopped some 6 months ago. I noticed the SOTW competition and was pretty interested so I spent yesterday cooking up a few things. 2/3 were failures, but it was fun. (here is the decent one).

CnC is always welcome, and I look forward to being part of the gfx community. :P

One doesn't have to be part of the staff team to be a part of the graphics community. Even just voting and commenting on people's work is enough to get you in, haha! I know I look forward to seeing you participate. :3

I like this signature a lot! The only thing I would do differently is not put the text on top of the render. But other than that, it's great!

Lol I was just kidding

 

Anyways I agree with the text thing. Maybe putting under the sword on the left will also make it look better.

It is good, but again, it would be better if the text was nor on the character, and if it was in the big open spot on the sig.

Ah, thanks everyone! You'll find that I don't have the best imagination, so I was just making the suggested themes in the current SOTW. I originally put the text 'sotw#146' in the open space'.
 
After revising my 'Summer' one, here it is, along with the original kenshin one. (text still feels weak in the summer one)

I also made a Panda and Persona4 one, but they didn't come out as I had liked.

P.s. You can show off more by making me one... Muhahaha ^_^

 
Well... I DO like showing off! Ahah. But seriously, if you would like anything I make, I can always just change/add text. :P
I sort of make things on the fly though, so I can't make anything in specific. :x

P.S. What is this Magikarp!? I'm curious now!

If you think that your text is too weak, maybe try using thicker fonts and add a border to the letters.


 


Also the magikarp was one of HeavenlyClassic's sigs, it was a character eating taiyaki and a magikarp thrashing in the background.

Ugh, I feel like I'm spamming the forum with my thread now. But nonetheless just spent another day playing with photoshop. Results are as follows: Animation is hard.

@lemming; :x I shall try it the next chance I get. I'm downloading more fonts too. (yay)

 

@Kenzou; Thanks! :> I actually do little to the BGs, apart from blur, re-colour, and apply a few filters here and there. The credit goes to the various artists of pixiv.

 

@HeavenlyClassic; Bikini Render can be found here. Sadly I couldn't find the actual deviantart user page.

It isn't spamming so long as you are posting things of value. Since your post has more than one word on it and isnt an advertisement or trolling, I think you qualify :P

 

Also your animated ones look awesome. It might be good to try and make them loop more smoothly, you can actually cut corners if you do it that way too since you don't have to make the animation as long. Still, as others have said, I would love to see more of your work!

@HeavenlyClassic; Yeah, haha. I have a habbit of starting my signatures huge, and trying to trim them down. (Though the width always stays at 500. I should fix that!)


 


@Kenzou; @Kei; Thanks for the vote of confidence! Unfortunately I have a hard time following instructions, or working in an organized manner. Because of that, it's next to impossible for me to plan to make something. So, I don't think I'll have a request section any time soon. (sorry)


 


@Emrys; I can apply the rain to your current sig, haha. Or I could use that exact bleach gif and put your name on top of it. But rendering ichigo + effects out of the gif and recreating a sig around it is a little beyond my skills. (I can't even render that well!)


 


@lemming; Thanks for the CnC as always! It's very insightful! Do you make graphics yourself?


 


I was actually annoyed at the loop too. (It's my first time trying the rain effect. I was following a tut.) I don't know how to get it to flow 100% smoothly like they did. It was a different version of photoshop in the tutorial, so I had to improvise half of it. If someone could tell me how to make it smoother, or how to make smoother gifs in general, I would love to know! (I want to get better at making gifs!)

Well, 500 by 220 is the perfect signature size!

 

I wish I did, but I just have never bothered to spend the time to learn, or pirate legally purchase and download photoshop. Still, I do my best to give CnC with my colorblind eyes and bad fashion sense.

 

Also try looking at PLGF's tutorial for gifs. It might not help specifically for rain, but he does some really good gifs and if you PM him then he might be able to help out.

 

As for your request shop, most people will simply want a character or render. So it would be possible, just let them understand that what you make is what they get and it will take whatever amount of time it takes. I'm sure everyone would unerstand :P

      I just thought I'd share with you which cartoons I've liked, which cartoons I haven't liked, and which cartoons I plan on watching.  I'd like you to tell me which cartoons you'd recommend to me!  Feel free to "second" the ones on my list, too.  It gives me a better idea of what kinds of cartoons you like.  Keep in mind that while I have watched a handful of anime and adult cartoons, I am generally not interested in them, so there's no need to mention them.
       
      Currently watching:
       
      Dreamworks Dragons I'm finally making some headway again, after a long time of procrastinating and waiting to download the special episode that takes place between the Cartoon Network and Netflix seasons. The Netflix seasons are so much better animated, it isn't even funny. Goes to show you what a little budget will do, huh?  
      Cartoons I've liked*:
       
       
      Honorable Mentions:
       
       
      Cartoons that I plan to watch**:
       
       
      Cartoons I might watch if enough people recommend them:
       
       
      Cartoons on hold:
       
       
      Cartoons that I stopped watching due to a lack of interest:
       
       
      Cartoons that are objectively bad:

      There has been this debate till the end of time but I think avatar is an anime.
    • By nyuszika7h
      It appears that if I use Gravatar, the site requests my avatar in 80x80 resolution and then upscales it which results in it looking blurry. If I upload my avatar directly to Kametsu, it looks fine.
