Avatars and signatures.

Post by Aizawa » Sun Jul 01, 2018 11:05 pm

Hehe, I was gonna name my thread 'DA TITLE' because I had no other idea as to what to name it. Oo Anyways, I'm not saying I'm some super-awesome-totally-terrific editor, but I know editing can be a pain for some people, especially people who are only using phones or something to use the site at the moment.. *raises hand until Tuesday* ugh.

But if you find you can't make an avatar because of limitations or a signature, I can try my best to help. This is actually ooc for me because I'm really self conscious about stuff I make, but I'll do my best.

I like to make 'mood divider' stuff the best [Me, Biba, and Fawn's signatures]. I recently downloaded new texture brushes to improve them.. literally looking for new pictures of da boi now to make a better one. I usually pick a color that goes with the character you want to use, but I can work interests, too. Like red roses for da boi, blue scenery to bring out Shigure's eyes, vapor-wave stuff that matches Unicorn's aesthetic. I can also add a quote under it like Biba's with a glow around it [or not]. They are transparent.
Image

I can do stuff like.. basic resize and sharpen. all I have on me at the moment are my Silver edits and the stuff I made for Fawn & Biba, sorry..
Image Image

*I can also add basic borders, pixel borders, ect. Not really worth showing examples because it's self explanatory.

Double-overlay border.. it has a black border with a white overlay one under it, giving it a nice glow..
Image

Oh, there's also rounded borders. Will be transparent.
Image

I can also add 'silly' little stuff, like flower crowns, kitty filters.
Image
OMG, that avatar brings me back. :']


And then there's my advanced edits.. this is me at my peak. I don't like to use this style a lot because it's stressful and time consuming, but maybe the more I work with it, the quicker and better I will get.
ImageImageImageImage

Signature wise, I don't really have a style because I'm experimenting. So I'd rather stick to moodbars or crops with basic edits until I practice, but here is some I have done.
Image
I'm okay with stuff like this.
Image
I'm still practing with stuff like this, but ngl I'm SO happy with how this one came out. I made this for a friend.

There aren't really any rules, just keep the images you want to use appropriate for the board, don't take people's custom stuff, and please be patient with me because I work long hours and rarely feel like editing in one-go. It can take hours, days, or weeks depending on the complexity and what I'm doing. Also, I'm still learning how to make images transparent myself so keep that in mind.

Pretty much everyone here seems capable of making their own wonderful content [avatars and signatures are the ways we express ourselves here after all!] so this might be pointless, but I was aiming to help people who don't know how to edit themselves or are new. ^^' Also, you don't have to use a specific character. Me, Fawn, Biba like to use ours because we really love those characters and that's really all there is to it. Just give me what you want and I can try my best to work with it.

Omg this is wonderful, I have always wanted to request something but felt it would be overbearing of me. But I'm gonna go ahead and request a moodbar of Serena from Yu-Gi-Oh Arc V. Do I need to provide the pictures for the mood bar as well?

Is it okay if I requested some Mana Ouma icons from Guilty Crown just using the images of her on e-shuushuu?

Okay, first one down. Might be better for people to give me stuff for their moodbars in the future [general idea for example Silver, red roses, bruises, ect.], as I had a hard time making it all come together. So if there is something you don't like, I can change it since I saved the Photoshop file. ^^ I chose blue to match her color scheme.

I'm glad you like it, Seina! If you ever want me to edit anything else, I'd be happy to try my best for you.

Fawn, I already started your Mirai set, but I can do RRH, too.

Matsuri, do you have a style you want?

Practicing with big signatures again. I wanted to make something for my best friend. It's a bit repetitive of my last one and it's kinda messy, but I wanted to wake you with something special... yeah.. <<; Now, she's always gifting me with wonderful comics, even without commissioning her, sooo I figured I'd do this.
Image

I'll edit this with an avatar in a bit. Maybe when I sleep. It's UHHHH [looks at computer clock] 4AM. ._.' Hoping to get better at this like all the cool kids on Livejournal are..
>> does that site even still exist? <<

If it might be not too much problem I just remembered that Serena has a Moon deck so maybe those flowers could be replaced with a moon?

Not a problem! I will fix it up and start on the other projects in the next few days. Thanks for being so patient with me, guys. ;;

Unfortunately, my laptop charger started smoking while I was trying to charge my dead laptop, and because my laptop is dead with no charger, I can't assess the damage. Bought a new charger online, but until I have my laptop these are on hold. Very sorry. Let's hope it was just a bad charger blow out [since the charger was kinda messed up in the first place, I'm thinking that's it. Gonna get the computer checked out anyways for safety].

Annnd we're back! Got a lot of stuff to catch up on while I was down for a few days but I'm working on the requests and fixing your stuff now.

Daddy Aizawa says to make sure your voltages match up on your laptop. So lucky my unit is safe and I just needed a battery and charger replacement. :']

Siena, I hope this is okay. I can make more revisions if needed and that goes for anyone. I always save the Photoshop files until I know I'm completely done with it.
Image

Matsuri, something like this, then? I can make more.

Whoa, I posted this at 11:11. 8] Guess I'd better.. make a nice wish. :*
