Timer's (Gaap's) Shack of Graphics!
 
Yep. I recently jumped into the siggy-making craze. A ton of the newest ones are smudge-based.

Used a few tutorial by CbKThis and a few other members from the Grand-Chase Fan-Media forums... Until I went on my own direction! :py28: (I use Photoshop Elements 3.0. And don't say that I need the recent Photoshop program... I can't afford it!)

Back to this.. I hope no one minds me posting my works... Ton of them are either experiemental, random/never have a thought, or a few SotW entries...

To start, here's my latest sig. (I need a Pop'n Music one for my BemaniStyle account!)

Now i'm going to go in order from newest to oldest... :py28: (Some are decent for experiments.. Some are just plain "bleh".)

Spoiler!


Separate for Settie's contest:


*Continue on next post*

Gaap 11-10-2010 10:23 PM

*Continues*

And rushed-out siggies for Dawn guild:



And here are my non-smudgie sigs:



If you want my art, view here instead. If you want requests, i'm only accepting my guildmates or people I know (like Sidero or Shnao). I'm still experimental and/or like to go random smudge-jab on my layers....

Err... I guess that is it for now? CnC or whatever. And expect more in the later future~ :py16:

P.S. For those who are new and want to request, it's best if you find a "render", a picture with a transparent background. Here are some websites that I use to make my stuff.

Renders Graphiques
Planet Renders

Kudaranai 11-11-2010 07:24 AM

It seems like you like smudging. (Nothing wrong with that, I like it too) But you might want to try messing around with the layer options and experiment a little. And colors! Try using more than just one or two colors in a sig. :>

Gaap 11-11-2010 11:00 PM

I'll try when my mind is free. Right now it's occupied with my essay plans. :py56:

Anyway, back to this. I deleted the original post I did so I can re-bump with more sigs!

http://asset.100.ggftw.net/gallery/images/35/6_1.png

This one came from SotW #82. It was by far my sig with the most votes compare to my last entries. I guess you can say it's a improvement in terms of Timer's general sig-making talent.

Spoiler for the negative inspiration of this sig... View at your own risk.
Spoiler!


Also did a new one...

Wall of text:
Spoiler!


EDIT: Derp. Another day means another sig.

http://asset.100.ggftw.net/gallery/i...ngesky_sig.png

Inspired by the song "Orange Sky" by Nadeco & LV. 4. I still also have idea for ti's StepMania GFX, but I never got it around to do them. So... Here's a sig version. ^^;

EDIT 2: GOD! I should stop for now and get to work on my paper! ;w;

http://asset.100.ggftw.net/gallery/i...GMJuki_sig.pnghttp://asset.100.ggftw.net/gallery/i..._mamon_sig.png

Yea the render i'm using is far like detailed and had so many tibets of colors. @.@ So in the end the sig looks so festive and wild...

Gaap 11-13-2010 11:56 AM

Another day means more sigs! (A la bump!)

http://asset.100.ggftw.net/gallery/i...hoenix_sig.png
Gift for GM_Phoenix. Render was pretty hard to do without screwing the sig itself. v.V Feels like another T.R. abomination.

http://asset.100.ggftw.net/gallery/i...hannon_sig.png
Listening to my playlist, I felt like tweaking the render by adding cat-ears (all part of the Umineko x TO mash-up) and going wile with smudges again. @.@ I don't know how to express this, but if you like it, the sig is up for grabs and I can change the text.

Again CnC if you like~ Could use more tutorials delicated to Adobe Photoshop Elemnents 3.0. @.@;;

Aww Mini, you've always had hands for art but your signatures got so much better. :3 I especially like your SotW #82 entry.

Rem 11-13-2010 12:46 PM

i really like the SotW entry 82 as i remember voting for it.. Didnt know you did that xD

Thanks! ^^ For my second smudge sig, that one came out good! :)

Yea. Can you believe it! But yes it's like my favorite for something done in my beginning smudge-sig days... And that one is good-looking (but again it shows some negative inspirations tossed into this sig).

Now I got new sigs made and done, but they are located at the 100-Themes Project! You can view the post contain the new siggys here!

Gaap 11-16-2010 04:45 PM

#83 SotW is over, so I can show you this.

http://asset.100.ggftw.net/gallery/images/35/1_6.png

Yep. That's mine and pretty much my 1st at using a non-anime render. I don't know. I'm proud of it, but it can't beat the other entries I like. O_< Oh and feel free to CnC before my PC decides to hate me and restarts itself again.

Kudaranai 11-17-2010 11:07 PM

I like the colors. Gaga is a little too far to the left for my liking though

Gaap 11-17-2010 11:49 PM

Thanks Kuda! ^^

I forgot what rule on photography, but I know putting a render at the very center doesn't look good. (Unless it's from Shnao's sigs, then i'm fine with them.) Plus I want some room to do some crazy effects... Which it's a bit overbound, yet I don't know why I feel proud of it.

Anyway, Trickster is slow and pushing it's ending maintenance time a bit to far. So I did a unimpressive quickie. Up4Grabs too!

http://asset.100.ggftw.net/gallery/i...tmagic_sig.png

Again, doing at least a sig a day to tell that i'm not dead from this PC issue!

EDIT: Okay. A ton of negative emotion has happened and yet I did a happy sig?!

http://asset.100.ggftw.net/gallery/i...liever_sig.png

Oh I wish magic is true.

EDIT 2:
Did two Touhou quickies. Again sigs that I am not using are Up4Grabs!

http://asset.100.ggftw.net/gallery/i...iscute_sig.png
http://asset.100.ggftw.net/gallery/i...ngtime_sig.png

Gaap 11-21-2010 06:10 PM

Okay, while trying not to "spam" my own thread...

"Ommos", "I'm not Listening", "Magic Spell" (100-Themes entry), "Know about Magic", "Do you Believe in Magic?", and "Oh Marisa can't be this cute!" (textless sig) were claimed by the GC/Blackout forum members. So err.. Please don't take them without the new owners' permission?

On the up-side, did a couple of new sigs.

http://asset.100.ggftw.net/gallery/i...occeor_sig.pnghttp://asset.100.ggftw.net/gallery/i...cceor_sig2.png
http://asset.100.ggftw.net/gallery/i...chigo_sig1.pnghttp://asset.100.ggftw.net/gallery/i...chigo_sig2.png

And did a sig/ID for my FurAffinity account. (Will post at DA too I guess.) It's nothing much, just using my own drawings as a render. ><

Gaap 11-21-2010 09:24 PM

Eh a bump. Sorry about that, bot Momiji requested a sig and I want to soothe my mind a bit.

http://asset.100.ggftw.net/gallery/i...momiji_sig.png

EDIT: Err whoops. Did not mean to underline the Hymmos text too. Oh well.

Kudaranai 11-22-2010 12:13 AM

I like the colors on the 2nd touhou sig

agreed it just sticks out
nice work~ :py55:

Gaap 11-22-2010 08:34 PM

@Kuda and Huey: Thanks you guys! The render itself helps make the prettiness happen... No wonder it's such a crazy-looking sig!

....

Eh. Found ton of pics that I don't mind making making sigs off, but they are not rendered yet... And i'm lazy to render them. Here is one of them as a hint.

*Tinypic is derp now*
(Oh and i'm keeping this to myself.)

james 11-22-2010 09:49 PM

On your Gaga sig.:
I feel like maybe Gaga's in the right (on the far left) spot, but what the main issue is is the lack of something on the right. I mean, it's like "AMG YAY GAGA OOOH FROSTY MASQUERADE OMAI <3333" and then you get to the far right and it's like "-crickets chirping-" I feel like there definitely needs to be some text there or something.

Overall, it does look really amazing.

Sounds like Frosted Flakes.. But yea. I can't think of any font and effect. Oh and did you see the hidden text "LoveGame"? Plus i'm "Gagaing" for the effect that text is to good for it. :py07:

ANYWAY... I found a Stocking render and I can't help but make a sig out of it. (I should be on TO though...)

These sigs you make are really nice o:
I especially like this one cause of the colors that pop out. You do a really good job with art, maybe one day I can do nice sigs like you *-* :py16:
