    Re: Justin's GFX

    Excellent! I love it!
    But, um, if it's not tooooo much trouble, can I have just one more? I plan on having a rotating signature thing, much like yours... But I'll wait a bit before requesting it.

    Aeront: I'm sorry! But I was kind of working in reverse order in requests. I apologize; and I'll try my best on yours to make up for it! Or at least decently...[

    Kiwi: No problem, I'm fine with that. This is my last week of finals, so I'll be free for more requests later on.

    Testing *officially* ends on Thursday, so you can just request then.
    These things take quite a while to do, so I need as much free time as possible.

    Re: Justin's GFX

    JSG I meant to like kinda critique or advice or something a while ago but who really cares what Kenz has to say RIGHT (haha I'm just kidding I dunno, but when I get into critiques I end up writing really huge HUGE paragraphs to the point where you'd probably get sick of it hehe).

    But no really for starting in just February, here we are 2 months later and you have improved super fast. The main thing I think you need work on is your color choices. A lot of your sigs do very well in coordination, but some of your sigs seem very very busy with clashing colors or colors that don't work well together
    (ie. [1] [2] [3] though I give you credit some of these examples are your older sigs I think).

    Some of your sigs are very very busy too
    (ie. [4] [5] [1 again]).

    I can tell you really like Axeraider's Winter Breeze brushes. :P

    I suggest you definitely expand your brushes collection as much and as often as possible! It gives you a lot more choice when you're making your sigs. When I was at my peak of sigmaking, I was constantly downloading new brushes and materials to work from. Obviously you're aware that you can install photoshop brushes into GIMP, and that you can find a variety of brushes on deviantart or just by googling "photoshop brushes".

    I would also make the suggestion of trying out C4Ds! They are kind of a challenge to work with sometimes, and they can make or break a sig. In fact I think you already are trying out C4Ds, aren't you! Well, maybe you should try expanding your collection of those, too. I have a huge folder on my computer that I keep all kinds of renders, C4Ds, and textures in. It's fun to look for new things to use! I think the user [stinky666] has a wide variety of C4Ds to choose from. Wireframe C4Ds are also pretty cool! :o try different things omg

    also, a good source for transparent renders is planetrenders.com or something like that yep you might already know these things. EITHER WAY

    TL;DR JSG YOU ARE GOOD AT SIGS OKAY LIKE YOU ARE REALLY IMPROVING VERY FAST AND I AM TOTES PROUD OF YOU OKAY keep up the good work because I deffs like what I see okay

    like even your "meh" stuff is good

    that's a good thing

    Re: Justin's GFX

    oh my thanks kenz, nice to hear advice from the one and only :D

    I am fully aware of my clashing colors and business; that's a habit I've been trying my best to stay away from. However, sometimes they would end up happening at one point or another, which is really hard to avoid for me nowadays with my attempt at new styles rather than just overusing brushes and whatnot.

    And yeah, the first two are when I was completely new to signature making, and I really just did what I had in mind. Now I learned from my mistakes.

    I can tell you really like Axeraider's Winter Breeze brushes. :P
    Those were my first brushes. And I really had no other choice, because I didn't even know what a brush did before. :P

    I suggest you definitely expand your brushes collection as much and as often as possible! It gives you a lot more choice when you're making your sigs.

Obviously you're aware that you can install photoshop brushes into GIMP, and that you can find a variety of brushes on deviantart or just by googling "photoshop brushes".
    I actually use quite a lot of brushes! Although, most of the time I don't use them unless they fit the "theme" I'm aiming at. So stuff like my Arcane Brushes and Splatters don't really fit in for a naturistic theme or something. But I try my best when I do! So yeah, and I never knew Photoshop brushes worked too. Thanks!

    I would also make the suggestion of trying out C4Ds! They are kind of a challenge to work with sometimes, and they can make or break a sig. In fact I think you already are trying out C4Ds, aren't you! Well, maybe you should try expanding your collection of those, too.

    Yeah, C4Ds are a pain for me, but they seem to look pretty nice most of the time when used correctly. Sadly, since this computer is somewhat download restricted, most of the cool and usable C4Ds I find are .RAR files, in which the desktop is unable to extract due to my restriction on not having WinRAR yet (still need my own laptop bluhh). I have limited C4Ds right now, so perhaps if there are any good non-WinRAR (I can handle .zips and simple file formats) C4Ds, I'd appreciate some for use!

    also, a good source for transparent renders is planetrenders.com or something like that yep you might already know these things. EITHER WAY
    I've been using that renders graphiques website (french rendering website) for a quite long time as of late, so no worries on that.

    TL;DR JSG YOU ARE GOOD AT SIGS OKAY LIKE YOU ARE REALLY IMPROVING VERY FAST AND I AM TOTES PROUD OF YOU OKAY keep up the good work because I deffs like what I see okay

    like even your "meh" stuff is good

    that's a good thing
    Thanks! I was really surprised of the reception; even when I was just starting out! I don't know, but February was my first GIMP signatures; before, it was a &&&&ty Sumo Paint one in which I had no idea how layers worked and what not. I guess ever since I joined the internet, signatures and graphic edits like these have always awe-inspired me, so I guess most of my work comes from inspiration! And besides Kenz, you're one of them who inspired me too. o:

    And right now, I'm still struggling on trying my best at these; but somehow with each signature I make, I always seem to do a little bit better than the last. Just compare my first one to my latest.

    again, thank you!

    Also, THANOS being written in all caps is necessary

    Re: Justin's GFX

    And then I got here. Yeah I got a request, but I wanted to say that you really have made some great sigs here. I really like the Korra one.

    If I could have a sig with this guy say "Sorry to keep YOU waiting!"
    Everything else is pretty much up to you. Creative liberty, and trusting you'll go a grwat job and whatnot.

    If that one won't work, then lets try this, with the text "Wonder Meow"
    Same as the last one with all those other specifics.

    Requests will be finished around Friday at the very most, since I'm pretty packed with school this week.

    Re: Justin's GFX


    For Kiwi

    Tried some new C4Ds with the space background. Also tried giving the render a "comic book" effect, but it isn't that noticeable considering the render DID come from a comic book, I think.
    Will get to PMGs, then back to Kiwi's sometime soon.

    Not requesting(yet, maybe), but I want to ask if you've ever done any banners. I think it's clear that you're mainly working with signatures, but I'm wondering if you've done any banner work(or plan to anytime soon)?

    I'd like to see what you're capable of in that, but have nothing specific to request in regards to that.

    I've made a banner in my early days of GIMP, which was rather plain/simple, but nonetheless, workable.
    Sigs have been a popularity and a main priority as of late, but I might try to incorporate my sig knowledge onto a banner for this thread someday.

    For PMG

    This was interesting to make. Especially when I tried using a different gradient style, too.
    I'm going to make both of you requests, PMG, if you don't mind.

    For Chaos Kiwi

    Not my best, but my god I tested out some new lighting styles and it looks great with this one.
    PMG's sig will be done sometime today or tomorrow.

    Also, I can now make signatures out of stock images, such as this. Basically, I can take a focal point, add some effects, and make a signature out of it.
