View Full Version : Orion's sig thread!

Dec 21st, 2002, 02:46 PM
Thought I may as well make one too, sorry for stealing ryoko's idea ^^

To kick off here's a sig I made for someone. I'll be making a few more soon so I will update later.


Dec 21st, 2002, 02:59 PM
Ahh nice! Good job! Howl ong have you been making sigz0rz? cause your very talented.

Dec 21st, 2002, 03:07 PM
Oo, that's a tough question. Thanks for the compliment tho :)

I started about a year ago ish, probably longer. I havn't been sigging or learning gfx for more than 10% of that time, as i've been occupied with other things, and don't really like to sig without inspiration, which comes rarely for me oO

To sum up, not that long a time, although it seems it :tired:

Dec 21st, 2002, 05:36 PM
Looks pretty good.

Dec 23rd, 2002, 04:18 PM
wow i really like how that looks. The background has a really nice grunge feel to it and the picture in the center and the one on the left blend extremly well gj orion

Dec 23rd, 2002, 04:19 PM
I like it. The BG seems to have a non-grungy yet grungy effect...and yes, I am trying to sound like I know what I am talking about, despite the fact I don't.

Good work, tho. I really like it, Onion.

Dec 23rd, 2002, 04:34 PM
ey man nice sig!
but wot ever happend 2 my 1?? :S :D

Dec 23rd, 2002, 04:39 PM
Crud, I totally forgot o_O

Okie i'll start it now, sorry o_o

Dec 23rd, 2002, 06:01 PM
looks v. good m8. I like the way you blend in the face. but yet gave the eyes the normal colors ;)

Dec 23rd, 2002, 08:17 PM

Here's another grunge one. I am currently looking for a new style, because I know it will get repetitive :tired:

Dec 23rd, 2002, 08:32 PM
I like ^^^^^ that one muuuch more than the first.. Good job on both of them. Your really talented.

Dec 23rd, 2002, 08:53 PM
Your sorta using the dirty stone style too much.

Dec 23rd, 2002, 09:03 PM
None the less it beats your sig :p

Thats very nice! Good job Orion!

Dec 23rd, 2002, 09:10 PM
f***kin great job there m8, wish i had those skills,

Dec 23rd, 2002, 09:35 PM
yeah 2nd one is v. cool. I like the first one a bit better tho ;)

Dec 24th, 2002, 06:32 AM
Yea its good. *cough* can you make me one *cough*.

Dec 24th, 2002, 06:54 AM
Jaredster give me a day I'll make you something.. Whois your fav DBZ Character? I'll make one with Vegeta for now...

Dec 24th, 2002, 11:48 AM

Don't drag my thread off topic please :tired:

Dec 24th, 2002, 07:54 PM
uhh make is for my alternate screen name "Sonic The Hedgehog". Also orion you should try other styles of sigs.

Jan 6th, 2003, 06:13 PM


It's not done yet........I just need ideas and suggestions o_O

Jan 6th, 2003, 06:15 PM
Of all your threads, I like the one with the Santa-girl better. But the one in your first post is cool, and that space one is sorta neat, but rather plain. Why don't you try making a psychedelic one? That'd look neat :D

Jan 6th, 2003, 06:20 PM
^^ That one isn't done yet, it's why its kind plain ~_^

A physcadelic one.......taht'd probs turn out like poo x_X

Anyhoo, I wanna make a real neat spacy one sometime, voom voom! :tired:
Ok sleep now :D

Jan 6th, 2003, 06:23 PM
Heh, I like Psychedelic. Okay, if you're doing just space, try making like a red glow of the sun or something. Something different. I can't think of anything, really. Psychedelic is the best I can do for now. Hey! What about making an actual star pattern, like Saggitarius or Cancer or something. Make them out of blue stars, so that they stick out from the rest.

Jan 14th, 2003, 05:25 PM

Hmm... guess it'll do for now, until I make a better one :tired:

Jan 15th, 2003, 08:36 PM
i like em all

Jan 23rd, 2003, 10:42 PM

Another vash one!
I'm considering using this one, but it needs a little something, and i'm stuck o.O

Can anyone help me?

Jan 23rd, 2003, 11:34 PM
Orion nice vash one he's a good character for sig, but on the very first on u posted in this thread who is the character in it?

Jan 23rd, 2003, 11:49 PM
That character is arucard from the anime hellsing.


I made a smaller version of the above sig, and I may use it :tired:

Jan 24th, 2003, 12:18 AM
its nice good job. I really liek your art its got a very original Feel In my oppion, good job m8 keep it up.

Jan 24th, 2003, 12:29 AM
ummmm, nice left pic, looks almost like mine, oh wait it is mine. Well almost. I see we happen to have similure sigs. It sorta takes from the originality, Well i just wanna make something lcear... i did make mine before you.

Good job though.

Jan 25th, 2003, 12:12 PM
Hey I know you made yours first, I just looked at them and noticed the left pic is the same o.O

I could make a new one I guess :tired:

Ooh sig I made for someone (bet you don't know who!) :tired:

Jan 25th, 2003, 06:28 PM
Shouldn't it be "Channel for the Pa?" :laff:

Jan 30th, 2003, 08:07 PM
I suppose I could change it, if he wants me too oO


Another vash sig, I seem to like making these don't I? o.O


Omg not vash?!

Jan 30th, 2003, 08:29 PM
Very nice sigs. I like the Naraku(sp?) one. Inuyasha is a sweet anime. And I don't think there is a Vash sig that I can say I don't like. Vash makes the sig good.

All together, all the sigs look great. I like your style. Very nicely done.

Jan 30th, 2003, 09:20 PM

That thread shows people who can make you sigs and are willing to.

The things to remember are that you must look at the post count requirement, and you must pm the person you're going to ask.

Thankies for all the crits so far people :)

Feb 7th, 2003, 01:02 PM
i like your new sig, i like the one when the main pics not blending with the background

Feb 7th, 2003, 01:03 PM
I agree with aisha, without the blending, it just looks better, cool sig!

grtz Naz

Feb 7th, 2003, 01:04 PM
I prefer the coloured one over the non coloured one, it adds some welcome contrast. Pity about the bg though, he onlt one I partially liked was the vash one.

Maybe if you didn't have two colours on the bg which clased so much :x Try some typography?

Feb 18th, 2003, 08:43 PM

OMG onion or what :tired:

Feb 18th, 2003, 08:46 PM
orion teh foo

/me slaps orion with trout

anyway its funky but its a good sig

Feb 19th, 2003, 10:57 PM

I like the bg on this one :tired:

Feb 19th, 2003, 10:58 PM
I like the Naru in the sig. Looking good. :D

Feb 19th, 2003, 10:58 PM
it looks sweet but it would be better with out the black on the sides Oo

Feb 21st, 2003, 09:21 PM
Nice orion...u excel at doing sigs now. good stuff tho it could be better without that black around it.:]

Feb 22nd, 2003, 02:59 PM
Realy nice indeed (all your sig's)

Feb 23rd, 2003, 12:05 AM


*voom voom!*

Feb 23rd, 2003, 12:06 AM

Feb 23rd, 2003, 12:20 AM

Mar 7th, 2003, 01:15 AM

*EDIT*+ NOO I DONT HAVE 100 POSTS!!!:cry: :cry:

Mar 9th, 2003, 11:36 PM
I'd like to ask for help. Does anybody have any suggestions on what I could add to this? I'm stumped for ideas :(


Mar 9th, 2003, 11:40 PM
Sure heres my oh so appreciated crit:

Add something animeish, like, one of the girls from agct! Font is nice and so are the colours. Failing that, add some typography and it should be a nice sig ^^

Mar 9th, 2003, 11:53 PM
I know this will probably sound dumb, but can you explain typography to me? I always get confused by what people mean by that :tired:

Mar 10th, 2003, 08:17 AM
wheee! goddamit man! your sigs kick ass! but i still got that freaky "dont leave me!" thing about my sig ^_^
about another theme you could try for a laugh.. why dont you try jthm like in my sig and sum pics here? (http://www.viciousgrin.com/jthm/gjohnny.html)
or happy noodle boy here? (http://www.viciousgrin.com/jthm/ghnb.html)

Yeah that is pretty dumb O_o

Typeography is all the blended text. For example, small text you see in the bg of some sigs and things like that.

Mar 15th, 2003, 11:34 PM

I don't know what to make of this one, I guess its grungy, but is it too much?

Mar 16th, 2003, 10:33 AM

I disagree, typography is pretty much all text blended or not, and many ppl link it to the trendwhore stuff too

the new sig i s tight, not too grungy I think, just good

grtz Naz

Mar 16th, 2003, 03:37 PM
Nah I think its too plan on the right side of it. Maybe shrink the heigt by about half?

Mar 24th, 2003, 09:55 PM
dunno ryoko, I think its ok as it is o.O


omg new sig, drunk love hina \o/
It's been a while since I made a sig :P

Mar 24th, 2003, 10:06 PM
Bg does not go with pic. text does not go with bg. Image looks dopey.
I don't like it much for those above reasons. Nothing seems to go together. Looks like 3 random things loped on top of each other.

Mar 24th, 2003, 10:39 PM
Just to let you all know, the girl with the big oobies...is a girl from the Dirty Pair. Heh, its a popular anime, suprised none of you recognized her and just said "That girl" or "Oo big oobies" lol. and if you look carefully, her best friend is behind her.

Just a correction.

I love ranma 1/2, funniest anime ever, and that is why I would pick the one with Onna-Ranma in it, the best so far. Though the dirty pair *_looks_* the best....

*shrug* They're alright, not the best, and lacking some originality, but you use the lack of originality to make them eye-candy-ish. Meaning, they may lack originality, but you mask it well, and make them look good.

If you get confused on what I mean by originality, is that I've seen those effects before, in the 5 yrs of being in this field.

I hope some of this helps for you.

Mar 24th, 2003, 10:45 PM
Thanks, and I do get what you mean, I think oO
Anyway, those dirty pair pictures are from the updated version, dirty pair flash :) You were really close tho :D Their names are Kei and Yuri, Kei having the "big boobies" :P

Just to point something out, I am in no way defending myself from your critisims, i'm stating what I think. I appreciate all the crits I get :)
When talking about originality, you could also argue that almost everything has been done before by somebody, and that there is very little originality left in the world. However, I am a fairly new artist and am bound to repeat things other people have done before me.

Don't get me wrong though (and I can't stop saying this :X) I do understand your comments and I do agree with them. Thanks for taking the time to share them with me :)

Mar 24th, 2003, 10:49 PM
Don't worry , no defense represented, I am just pointing out and trying to send you in the right direction. I've seen so many talented artists go through, with styles done before and they end up going in a ditch and not ending up where they want to. I know what your talking about with Dirty Pair. Been a while though so I was confused on which, flash or the original.

My style always changes, I dont have a style but an overall theme, emotions. So I may have images that are done by people, but not the meaning behind them. No single image I have made, has had a "style" to it except 2d art or typography.

Remember, I am always here to help and try to send aspiring artist's like yourself, in the right direction. Sometimes, the only way to do that, is to tell you straight out from time to time. Get what I mean?

Mar 24th, 2003, 10:54 PM
Yes, I totally understand what you mean, and I agree that I do need help, and pretty often too o.O
The problem with me is that I go into a sig not thinking what I want to make, but only what i feel like doing. This means that my sigs and stuff vary widly in effort, as you can probably see.

I also have been lacking inspiration for quite some time now, and this only serves as an annoyance. I tend to work with styles, and once I find a style I like, stick to it until I find a better one. This makes for periods where my work looks the same. I know it's a horrible habit to get into, but I find myself stuck in it :X

Oh, no worries about the dirty pair thing, your point reminded me that a lot of people were saying "that girl" so I thought i'd explain it for everyone else :)

Mar 25th, 2003, 05:33 AM
you seem to always use some type of blur in your sigs but you make themlook nice
i dont know waht to say except i dont really like that wierd font

May 7th, 2003, 12:42 AM
I havn't made any sigs for an absolute age now, because i've just not felt like doing any. I think its due to a lack of inspiration.
I had to make a sig of the new zelda game, wind waker, because it owns so much :)
So heres my rather simple sig:


What do you people think?

May 7th, 2003, 12:43 AM
I like it. It almost looks...proper to have that render of Link in a sig =]

Lone Wolf
May 7th, 2003, 12:46 AM
Its green O_o... I like it :laff:

May 7th, 2003, 12:53 AM
Too overcrowded. You have like 3 different pictures in there (2 in the bg) and it really ruins it for me.

May 7th, 2003, 03:39 AM
its mini link!
