[p]And, Phebes, inspired by Husky and by the brilliant spectrum of colors in illusionist spells, I experimented with using multiple colors in your sigs.[/p][p]This was the first version I made. It has the same assertive, whimsical style I see demonstrated in your posts...[/p][p]But because I didn't feel that it was bright enough, I also made another version.[/p][p][Images Removed][/p][p]Let me know what changes you want made.[/p]

Misako sent me some beautiful images of Shin when she sent in her request, but the more I worked with the images, the more I realized that they wouldn't work. I did, however, use her favorite images of her character for the almost mournful expression on her face.

EDIT: And a new version with clearer text.

I also made this version, but the file size is considerably larger than the previous. You may wish to use the previous version to save stress and loading times on other people's computers, especially if you are a frequent poster on the forums.

I couldn't help but do a little further experimentation on Phebes's sig.

OooOOOH! I have to say I really dig the Phebes pieces you did. Not so much the second brighter one, but the first (is awesome!!) and the third are really great SMILEY The first one is my personal fav, I think the colors you used and the combination of elements came out  beautifully SMILEY The third piece is cool as well with the colors in the background. So far these are my favorite ones in your collection!

To each their own. Phebes chose the second one out of the three. She agreed that the first one was too dark for her personality. I think my favorites will always be Tenmou and Madre's.

I like the first one the most simply because the text doesn't scroll over her face.  That's a very good pose too and very nicely adapted, Sapph.  (Misako) And the 3rd one for Phebes you've done is great!  I love the mist around her.  Very enchantress.

YAY! Cause I didn't like the second one.

Sometimes, I get stuck into a rut, and I need a swift kick in the pants to get me out of it. In this case, that swift kick in the pants was delivered by my son. You see, I encourage my children's feedback when I make sigs, because my daughter gives me creative input (usually "Add more pink" and that I should include unicorns and flowers and such), and my son gives me short one or two word phrases that cut right to the chase.

So, I'm sitting there trying to make this sig work, using spooky text and warm rusty colors against a dark background to create a spooky inquisitor-like background. I was using shots where I manipulated Kaeja's hair to make it long and flowy, and I grunged it up slightly. I worked for some time trying to create just the right effect, and it wasn't working. My son walked up behind me, took one look at it, and said, "Mommy, that really sucks."

At that point, I finally sucked it up and scrapped the entire project to start anew. I hope you like it, Kaeja.

Well, she wanted something both sexy and sinister. I finally chose the background because of the quote. It's rain drops that I darkened and blurred and then slid under glass. I think with the blue mist that I wrapped around her face, I achieved that mysterious sexy quality she wanted with a suitable touch of evilness.

I know we got off on a bad foot, but am hoping we are ok now SMILEY  I would like to request a signature from you. I want something in particular and am not sure I can pull it off and you are the only one so far that I have seen that does them the way I am thinking. Could you PM me if you are able to take a request? Thanks!

Hahahaha! You caught the tear in her wing. I actually had to search through dozens of butterfly pictures for an idea of what a convincing wing tear would look like. When I made the background, I was worried that the tear would be too hard to see. Instead it kind of makes it more subtle so that the eye sees it eventually as it travels over the picture.

Oh, and, Aramae, this little Arasai is a resident of Antonia Bayle and a citizen of Qeynos. You just might bump into her.

Well, you just might be out of luck. It's my understanding that Tenmou is rather child-like and won't understand whatever it is you want from her. But she will tell you about how she got in trouble for flooding the Baubbleshire Inn's basement with slime. She insists that she didn't mean to.
