What are you talking about that is a great sig. Its nothing like the others!! In the others the color changed thats all in this one the text moves from across the sig and then back and flashes that is a great style and complely original. Did you hear me ORIGINAL.

Lame... like all my other sigs... WTF are you talking about?! It's completley different! Show me one other sig of mine that looks ANYTHING like that. The only ones i've seen you do are copies of either my character style, or my colour change idea (inspired from Naz). So get off your high horse and say something constructive next time.

that color change was more like a copy from me... differnece was with me it were different graphics too, concept was the same though... but I didn't really care, and still don't so back to topic, this new sig

the bg is quite nice, better then pretty much all other bg's u created so theres improvement :yes: , the animation is new and quite innovative, the font u used for it though looks a bit sucky in my book, overall it's nice, not alike like some1 said I think, just nice and renewing

grtz Naz

GotenksOwnz, where did you first see/think about the idea of colour change? I am flattered that people wanted to copy the whole changing colour effect but, it's annoying to have people flame you saying that you stole the idea of someone else (which has happened to me in a PM) especially when you came up with it.

Thanks Naz, and I did say it was inspired by you ;)

I just made it change between 4 colours and added a flash effect to make it my own style if you know what I mean.

Yea nice sig......

As for this "colour change" thingy people can do what the F**K they like with it as long as its a whole new backround.

Since i am still new to the animating world and trying to find a good tool for doing it i was doing the colour change to see if it work out ok. :]

Funny how you say you came up with it, When someone else said they made one then you did. *sigh* Back to topic Its ok, The text animation is straight.

You dont have to ask for crits form people. To me, that makes me less inclined to reply :/

The bg in the sig is good! Better than your others. The effect is original but easily copied (I could do it O.o)

It was my idea, changing between 4 colours with a flash.. name someone else who did that? And I said the whole concept was inspired by naz as that's were I first saw a sig change colour (and graphic).

Ryoko, I put them names up as those users are my biggest inspiration and i'm fans of them.. If they post here and say 'I like it' then it'll give me more confidence :D. As for the effect, it is extremely simple, but not so simple for n00b artists.. snow comes to mind (although his work shows alot of promise) :), and remember.. wasn't that long ago you, me, naz, koblano or any sig makers were n00bs ;)

Aight...now for my critz. I like it. One thing is...the font...i wouldn't have used it. It's a nice font but I not sure if it goes with the sig. I liek the animation, i think if you would have held it off ofr like, 1 or 2 seconds more it's be funnier (bcuz it'd scare ppl more) but it's still good. Only complaint is the font but still, it's a good sig. Good job. (And sry bout the color thing. I wasn't copyin u, i was just foolin around, and did some color changes and couldn't pick which was my favorite. lol)

Merlin
Mar 3rd, 2003, 12:57 PM
Well koblano Id have to say thats the best color changing sig ive seen yet, How the different colors come in it almost looks like its eating away at the other color. Indeed tight. Nice job!

Download animation shop 3 if you want to do it merlin it takes 1 click of a button.

koblano
Mar 3rd, 2003, 02:15 PM
Don't make it sound so easy. In case you didn't realize, thats all you have to do for almost every part of the sig anywayz. Jeeperz. Not like that little animation in your sig took any effort either.

GotenksOwnz
Mar 3rd, 2003, 02:16 PM
Nope took 3 layers :) 6 in animation but hey i wasnt getting at u i love the way ur sig works man :)

koblano
Mar 3rd, 2003, 02:20 PM
BTW, i like the alphabet (ABCDEFGH) in your second sig (lol)

Demi-Shadow
Mar 3rd, 2003, 02:42 PM
Koblano, that is by far the best colour animation I have seen :yes:

The background in that sig was around 20 layers in the end, and the animation was 1 layer but 40 odd frames.

Kablano the text in my 2nd sig is just letters becuz its just an affect to fill up the space:S

Snow
Mar 3rd, 2003, 10:01 PM
Did you use animation shop 3 to make your text glow in the first sig?

GotenksOwnz
Mar 3rd, 2003, 10:06 PM

Thanks for the comments/compliments/criticisms. Hibiki, tell me WHY it's bland and unoriginal and I might be able to do something about it next time :p

He's more than entitled to his opinion, and the point of me posting my sigs in this forum are so that people can comment on the problems and I can fix them. :)
