@Luka: I'm into them for years, but since they barely appear in the anime, I couldn't bringt myself to watch it cause no other characters interest me there xD

Thanks for critique. \o/ And what would you say to text and stuff? Now I'm curious =w=

@Envy: Thanks ^^ I'm surprised the typo is anything worth mentioning for you, but I'll be quite and thankful ewe I think I suck at using group renders. I normally stick to single person renders for a reason x.x

Signature I plan on using a few days before July.

It somehow bothers me how it's so similar to soaru's sig. Nowhere near the same level, but still..
What soaru said. There are a few unnecessary things as well, such as the bubbles to the far left and right next to him on the right.
The text font is either poorly chosen, or it's the placement, I'm not sure.

I made Hotchy a new signature which is matching with my new layout, which is not done yet, but somehow I want to use it for myself, but pffffff. It really seems the signatures made not for me are often nicer than those for myself or that's how I see it :)

^ It looks amazing. The blending and text placement is really good, The only problem I see is the main focal, which is it? The right or the left? You'd want to focus on the main render.

Thank you!! Main focus should be the left, thanks for the advice I'll work on it.

@soaru Ah, whoops q.q Gonna remove the text once I get back home

@Isa I wasn't really planning on copying Soaru's sig or anything, I d/l'd the render back when Odhinata rendered it to teach someone how to make sigs. He gave up midway, so I finished it. Sorry if it reminds you of soaru's, I really didn't mean to..

Gonna remove text and some bubbles later when I'm home o/ Thanks for the input.

@Nymil, I didn't mean the text by the way, I am bad with text myself so I can't really complain about that, like never. Perhaps just the chosen font but what I meant are the lights / brightness here. For comparison the lights on your current sawada signature are totally ok, I like those a lot but here it makes the image look even more brighter and since the character has white hair, adding more white spots around his head make it somewhat hard to look at, not that it's bad. I also think you could add more sharpness since the character would stand out more.

Ah.. I see. I'll renew the light sources and try to make the render stand out above the bg. Thanks!


Let's see...

Edit:

Okay, I tried to lower down the whole, brightness job:



I think it looks better owo I removed the extra effects, and, here we go.

Oh wow, that's really pretty. I really like it. The shading and highlighting are amazing on the woman's face, geez. It's a little dark, though (I shouldn't be talking) *coughs* nevermind

Near the negative spaces, try to brighten with some lighting textures or use adjustments. You just need to be careful with the shading/highlighting; don't worry we all have the issue.

It's looking good though. :) And yes lighting is hard to please.

Practicing Fractals for the contest. Does this even count as fractals? CNC pls



This won't be used

Well, you basically made your background from fractals as far as I can see. It would count, but let me give you advice. The 15th is far away, so practice more and find more creative ways to use fractals. There are lots of nice packs with beautiful fractals on deviantart. ^^

Some practice since I've been out of it for a few weeks. It lacks depth but I like how the background turned out.

Mhm I like your background :o
I kinda feel the render doesn't blend well, or maybe it's me? :/

Well was going to use this for the GFX contest, but I doubt its good enough.
I used 2 light fractals, guessing its not enough. Not really noticeable


Also whenever I finish a graphic on PS, when I save it.. it looks different. The one on Photoshop looks different than the one I save as png/jpeg. It's either darker, lighter, or different shade of color. Like the face of Saber wasn't as dark on PS itself, but looks darker after I save it. Is it just me or no? :/

Yeah, I love the background but the render doesn't feel right. I just don't think the style fits the background and I sorta dislike how the face was drawn... which is the renders problem lol.

:( I think it looks amazing!!
I sorta agree with the fractals, I don't really notice them.
Is it possible you have something wrong with your preferences? I don't notice that when I do mine, just my gifs always end up going a bit too fast but I can just quickly fix it.

Here is what i was going to enter (Though i was going to work on it more...) but another idea came to my head so I would consider this practice? I will work on typo when I think of something for it, I had an idea, only to find out that word didn't mean what I thought it did.

I also tried to create a bit more depth by adding a fractal infront of her but it didn't turn out the way i liked..

@Ryu: I agree with busy, the background is very nice but the render dosen't blend in :/

@busy: ԅ(¯﹃¯ԅ) and the fractals are quite obvious.

@Zelot: I would work on your lighting, besides that the render is too blurry, I made a lil example without psd:

I see, I made that mistake at the begining too, when your lighting is alright you have automatically depth in the sig, and the other way is blurry the things in the front of her or and that background. But the first will only work out if you have C4D or other objects like:

^ Blending is off, must be because of the quality of the render (the edges are crisp) same goes with the lighting. It's pretty neat that you used fractals as your light source, but never place them on the farther side.

A second attempt for GFX contest, but I went with the first attempt anyway. I completed this one though, so.. any criticism and feedback is welcome.

I became a bit lazy at the end, so I think it looks a bit.. how to say this.. boring.. empty? Maybe I should remove the border though.. *grumble*

@ Isa Oh. my. gosh, it's lovely. Get out (ノಠ ∩ಠ)ノ彡┻━┻

Feedback: At the right side it's empty but that's okay. What I'd really like to see is his eyes glowing and some highlighting/toning. The borders are bigger than they need to be, but it's not bad. I love this piece hehe.

I love the colors but I don't think there is much flow and it seems rather dark.
The render is too small, even if you want the entire scythe in the signature, it's better to have a focus on Shinoa instead. The text looks good, but I wish it would stand out a bit, like add a stroke or a glow, or make it more dynamic.

The blending could you use some work, like I see that you applied a greenish hue all over the render but it still doesn't fit right with the signature.

Also made a new piece although this was actually pretty quick...

@ GENBrian The plain black text and the small render should be changed. It's too much green for me, but it could look nice if you do some final touches.

@ Zelot I'm not fond of the text but everything else's looking good.

@ Cleo-chan It's gorgeous! I'm not usually fond of the text or that orange/brown coloring but everything goes together that I can't dislike/hate anything. I love it bb! <33

@ ryoukii Not fond of the text, but it looks great.

@Sapphire-san try to spent more time working with effects, text, colors and composition. Watch/read tutorials. Now, your sig don't look very good or even decent. No blend, text and border are out of place. Like I said try to spent more time, try to experiment with various effect and fonts. Good luck!
