I really don't need 2 places for my art & my sigs do I?

Not that I draw a lot...

Still, might as well start w/ recent sigs rather than old sigs. Just a bunch of Blazblue ones I made recently.

Oh and an album full of older ones (that kinda aren't as good):
old sigs - Album on Imgur (http://imgur.com/a/2dv6R#0)

I'll do whatever style you wish from my sigs. C4D stuff, those blended ones, whatever. My only request is that for some styles you give me a render (cut out image) if you can & tell me if you want text on it along w/ what you want it to say. I'll also do the MAL style sigs like this & provide the slices. Example:

http://i.imgur.com/xNl1Nsj.png

I also do a bit of dabbling in Gifs from time to time.

You can use requested sigs from me anywhere, I don't care about credit much. TBH I don't care if people use any sig I made as long as it doesn't have a name on it made for someone else. If I have the PSD for it I will gladly modify it for you.
I'll provide resources used if needed as well.

Art however, I don't take many requests for hahaha.

Guess I should put this

Ye I used to go to a few, I don't remember which names tbh (almost all of them were for anime stuff), a lot of them are probably closed. Had a DA account for this before I closed it and used to be one of those people who used to set up camp in the sig shop clubs over on MAL as well haha.

Thank you tho :>

Saya El Lagarto

Ahhh you're both too kind hahaha.

Also I would feel nervous replacing someone atm tbh (i personally feel artificial's graphics are a lot nicer than mine hahaha). I feel like at times my work doesn't come off as professional and clean looking as I'd like it and it's been a while since I've really done things that are outside of my normal box because I took about a ... 3 to 4 year hiatus in my graphics and I'm barely getting back into it. I need a lot of practice on doing logos, getting back into the groove with flow, color composition, and I generally am not too great with typography at times (and not to mention about a while back, I managed to lose a lot of my resources)

Perhaps after I finish my sister's blog design I will take up your offer though? I would like to finish it first though as we've just begun the project.

Saya
04-13-2015, 08:46 AM
mintea Oho, I did offer that half-jokingly, but if you received it seriously I am very happy. Unfortunately we do have some form of procedures; there's a position hiring thread that comes up on news for Himeuta every now and then. Almost no one ever works for us without applying there except very special case by case people. Fortunately, we do plan on hiring people (and firing some old ones) pretty soon, so if you are interested when it's posted by all means, feel free to apply!

@mintea (http://www.himeuta.net/members/10165-mintea/) Well, while we're at it, would you mind if I requested an avatar?

Reso I am looking for is anything that is 200x300 or less. The dimensions are your choice.

I do not have any specifications whatsoever, but I would prefer if the image was borderless; as in, not fixated rectangle/squares (aka use transparency like my current avatar).

I don't have a particular render in mind but I know that will be kind of troublesome for you. So at the very least, I'll say a character I want, which would be Hatsune Miku from VOCALOID (you may be aware).

Been a while since I used a Miku avatar. I'm hoping to see your work soon! Do mention me (@Saya) when you have finished the request.

Thanks!

Saya

And looking back a bit that you're also taking request for sig and/or ava so I'll add you to the workshop list
You can check the thread on the artwork's sticky thread or my sig if you wanna know the people with great arts like you and maybe you guys can discuss together as fellow artist

So uhm, hi, saw your art, pretty amazing stuff (I really like your Dio Ava/Sig combo [inb4 you didn't make that and I make a horrible fail]), so I would like to request an avatar (you make those too right? RIGHT?! jk).

Reso would be 200x200 as per forum standards, transparent/borderless (as you did for Saya's one).

Uhm for the pic, err, I never can decide, so I will perhaps let the choice to you if you don't mind? (If you do I can always search up for a pic duh)

And as for last but not least important, character in it would be Kyouko Sakura from Madoka Magica.

Well that's all I think, thanks in advance for your time ^_^

mintea
04-14-2015, 03:29 AM
iPe7eR Thank you thank you. And yeah I can add avatars to my list of things to do. Kayyy I'll grab a pic for a Kyouko one.

And tyty. All I did was crop the image and extend the background for the Dio one though hahaha. Nothing too hard.

Hello, I saw your art.. pretty amazing stuff; I was wondering if you could create a sig for me? Possibly with Kaga, and Shoukaku in it. Nothing too ecchi, and i have no dimension in mind either. It doesn't have to be too fancy or anything. Ill leave all the details to you (that is, if you would accept)

mintea
04-14-2015, 11:25 PM
@@ Pretty soon I'mma have to start getting a little more stern on people providing pictures. Looking for them ends up a lot harder for me simply because I always worry it won't be within the users taste (well that and it generally saves me time. I can usually do a sig in about an hr or 2 vs looking for images and taking somewhere around like 12~24 because i save like 30, narrow it down, ask peoples opinions etc, and then extracting & matching everything)

I did find some pics though, just not sure which of the 3 to use (as I try to keep the style of art the same so the focal point won't look as odd) I guess I'll just open 'em up and go from there?

@Autouser (http://www.himeuta.net/members/7007-autouser/) i ran into a problem while doing your sig: i forgot to save the psd early on and when I did photoshop locked up and refused to save. Luckily I was able to save... well most of the sig. I mean like it's done I just hate not having the PSD for it because in case you want anything to be edited, I cannot edit it due to this. However, here is the finished product. If you would like anything retouched, I can attempt to redo it, but it won't be exactly the same and I'm completely buttmad over not having the psd :')

RAMBLING ASIDE HERE IT IS

I resized and cropped it to make your life easier for you, but it's still big enough that you'll need to tweak it a bit;
but lmk if you want the original ~! I would like something vibrant, but not over the top.

Not an actual request for a sig or an ava for me, but can you link the resources used in that sig? Looks pretty dank cool. nice work overall btw! (and a small question, but in your old sigs, are you satisfied with the typography used? I feel like the position of the text/username is kind of random).

Hope this is to your liking, tho the text makes the lowercase m look larger due to the pixel sizes differing. :s

http://i.imgur.com/0BpsA6J.jpg
And I also can't find the brush, it was a scattered circle one that I used as shape for a clipping mask, and then I used apply image, dragged it slightly to get an effect and sharpen to enhance that

Huh, this is the first time I've been questioned about my text as to why I place it so odd. I guess the only thing I can say is that I hate sticking it at the top/bottom or the corners... It feels like it should be focused on a little. My typography I feel like I've improved on in comparison to my older crap, but it's not that much better

mintea Thanks for the resources!

And yeah, as a general rule the text should never be at the top/bottom/corners apart from some exceptions, but I don't know ... maybe the size/choice of font/effect on the text makes it look weird (and accentuated by the fact that it's on the focus). Maybe it's just me.

Hi mintea! Are you still accepting requests? If possible, can I request a set of signature and avatar of Akitsushima?

As for the style of the signatures, I prefer the one where you used in your Iris Heart and autouser's Akagi/Kaga sig, with a slight emphasis on lighting effects (something like artificial's Purple Heart's sig for Lycanous: http://i.imgur.com/RgnaiGT.png ) If you can't do the lighting effect that I have requested, then it's okay. Just stick back to the previous style for the Iris Heart sig.

The dimension of the sig should be 400x150 (which I think is the best size :3) Including E.S. into the text section would be nice as well, though I prefer it subtly xP

For the avatar, I leave that entirely up to you. Rendered avatars like Saya's or iPe7eR's would be a big plus.

Sorry if I sounded... too demanding xP I can further reduce the details if you find it too much.

I thank you for your attention to this request.

mintea
