Poll: Which MAL Signature do you like the most?

Thanks :)

----

The sig looks good, except for one thing. I don't like the background of the MAL custom sig that much. Those characters behind the anime titles sorta divert the attention a bit from what's important (the series you're watching), IMO.

Hm, true, though not as bad as some sigs that I've seen. >_>; Also, probably not as distracting as my Aria sig was, since the word "ARIA" took up the entire space.

I'll see about experimenting with the new style as well.

Edit: Alright, new look already! Also, added a little image on the left which links to my blog. I could have had a text link below the banner for my anime list, but I decided to have a blog link instead. Maybe once my club gets more than one other member, I'll remove the userbar and free up some space. :) Until then, I think I'm sticking with this!

I guess the middle sig looks better now, but you why did you remove the first character? It looked good.

I haven't seen monoke otherwise I might join the club :)

I liked having two images as well, it looked so nice and balanced. But, since the colours in the main image are based on the colours in the side image, the two wouldn't have matched. (With the new style, there isn't a background image to base the colours off of.)

Although, now that I look again, my avatar doesn't match anymore. Foo. :( I should really try to find a good shot of the erhu.

Hehe, thanks. You should watch Mononoke Hime, it's a great movie. As for the club, I might just consider sending out invites to people who have it on their favourites list. *nodnod*

Arigatou!

The old Saiunkoku one was like so:



The Aria sig was similar, like so:



Though, obviously, the text is missing from the center part. >_>

I've been on a Valkyrie Profile kick lately.

The design itself looks pretty cool, I'm not particularly fond of the image though.

Watashi :).
The idea of setting other images to to act has border outside the actual sig is Krelian's though :).

Good times. I wish the image was less blurry, but since these are screencaps from a PS2 game I don't have a whole lot to work with. I'm curious though, is the transition from image to solid color too obvious?

I wish we could use a background with the new style sigs in lieu of the background color and border... that'd be perfect.

so what happened to the coolest villain ever? :P hehe


Don't worry, he'll be back =P

hmm, yeah a bit blurry.. The transition isn't too noticable though. Though the lack of contrast makes it somewhat dull.. I don't know. I like it-yet I prefered your old ones (they were just so awesome though!)

Also updated my sig (and the avatar, you might have to do a real refresh to see it) to go with the list design. Not sure if it's final, picking the right colors is tough.

I like it. The text is a little hard to read against the lighter shade though - maybe you should make that darker than the other color instead?

Same here :|
And no, I don't think the transition is too obvious.

theplayster: Not really fond of having two separate themes in the pic. But otherwise looks good.

cyruz: looks good. I guess Krelian does have a point, maybe you should replace the color on the lighter tabs to add some more contrast.

I think I'd prefer a not yellow. It just feels out of place compared to the rest. Maybe a light blueish-grey or something?

Actually I think the yellow helps your name stand out and keep from fading into the background. It draws you to it making you read it, although I thought it said something like mother before reading your name. Your name becomes the subject of the picture and everything else the background.

Yet another update, this time from Fairy Tail. Still not hitting on much signature-wise though. I like the avatar much more.

It's from Jigoku Shoujo, the original image also being the background to his list.

It looks a little odd being overwritten by the myanimelist.net bit, I'd say. I think it might look better moved down some, perhaps

Thanks a lot Arekkusu, it's as Krelian says.

I like that one Krelian. I was thinking about putting the Jigoku Shoujo logo next to my sig as well but right now I can't use any image editing progs so that's gonna have to wait ^^.

lol, you really fell for Fairy Tail :). Incidentally, I also love the avatar a lot. Still the sig looks good. I don't like the left part with the logo though. It doesn't seem to fit. Perhaps if you removed the kinda separating lines and used the same darker orange for background.

eazy: simple, but it looks good :)

Yeah, it's pretty awesome. The more I read, the more it reminds me of One Piece.

I was thinking about putting the Jigoku Shoujo logo next to my sig as well


I think that would look pretty awesome - definitely try it out when you get a chance.

Dark Blue + Black = hard to see

hm you think it's hard to read?. I think there's a good contrast in the rows. I previously tried putting it all white but it looked a little plain -.- and didn't like it much...

V how else things it looks better like this?

Nah, grey tones only mess it up. Black and white are both readable for me so yeah, it's up to you Kay. I prefer white though.

Yeah, I'll only use white or black. Gray is almost inexistent in the pic so it would look out of place.

I dunno now... -.-'

edit: ok updated for now. I'm not sure if I'll keep it with white though. It will take some time getting used to :)

Grey may not work, but a light blueish shade would fit perfectly. I always try to grab my colors (or at least something to start from) with the eyedropper tool in order to get one that doesn't look too out of place. There are plenty of light-but-not-white shades in there you could use. That said, I think it might look better if all the text was black. I dunno.

I definitely don't like it all Black. It's a very harsh change from those white clouds next to the sig. The color I'm using is not white though. It looks so since it's on a blue background but it's a blueish white I took from one of the clouds. If I lower green and red even more it probably wont have enough contrast with the tables I think.

I guess what's throwing me a little is the contrast with the border. I suppose I ought to stop bugging you, but I'm curious to see what it'd look like if the border was a little lighter. The shade of Miharu's coat, for instance, or perhaps one from his hair. *goes to fiddle in photoshop*

[edit] nevermind, doesn't make enough of a difference to be noticeable.
