Hi everyone, well I am new here and I've seen such amazing designs here in EOFF. You guys are so different from the forums of graphic. You got your own styles and designs which is cool, I hope my work doesn't look so repeated to you. ^^

I've been gfxing for like 6 months now and well all on my own. I use Photoshop CS2. Your comments and advices would be so welcome. I am still trying to figure my own style.

My sigs from oldest to newest (bottom to top):


worse sig ever >.<














I have some tutorials at my Deviant art (http://whitedove15445.deviantart.com/), feel free to check them ^^

Like I said any comments are welcome. I'll keep this thread updated but I am a bit slow. Thanks in advance!:)


09-07-2007, 03:33 PM
PS right..?Well all of them are nice though..reminds me of someone too..

09-07-2007, 03:57 PM
Really? I wonder who's that, hmmm! Thanks X andrewX. ^^


09-08-2007, 07:33 PM
Wow. You make quite amazing sigs. Have you made them before? You're certainly not a beginner.

09-08-2007, 08:13 PM
Well, I have been using Photoshop for six months, not totally a beginner, no. ^^

Thanks, dagger. This is a great complement! :)

09-09-2007, 05:02 AM
those..reminds me of owen.

09-09-2007, 05:20 AM
...Yeah..anyway...your text are nice too..

09-09-2007, 11:28 AM
Funny you and Owen followed the same tutorials :D Your text is awsome all the way! But there's a difference ;) Those sigs are girly :D Owen's sigs were more of a contrast ;) But in 6 months you made what he took in a year or so :D That's awsome :) Btw my favourite is the Squall one ;)

09-09-2007, 11:39 AM
woooow i really like your style... and yeah it really does remid you of owen's doesn't it??... but anyways I think they're all awesome...

really your work is some of the best i've seen... looking forward to seeing some more of your work ;) can't wait to see what's next :)

welcome to the forums btw, you'll fit in just nicely here in the graphics forum i think :)

09-09-2007, 01:43 PM
Thanks guys, it is an honor if my work looks like Owen's. I have seen his work and how people liked it. I hope I can be as good but still I see my style is far different from his.
Thanks for the comments.
Two new sigs. ^^"



Any C&C is welcome, feel free to let me know what's wrong or good about these sigs. :P


09-09-2007, 01:46 PM
Bravo! You've also managed to crush my hopes and dreams!:thumb:
Keep up the good work!

09-09-2007, 02:08 PM
I did? well, that's the greatest of achievements. :bigsmile:

09-09-2007, 02:32 PM
Damn. Damn.


That is all I can say. You're making me a sig pronto.

09-09-2007, 04:48 PM
I love them :love:!!!!!

although i don't like the fat white lines along the sides on the first one... they're too fat to be honest... nothing wrong with the sig though, don't get me wrong the sig is great just the lines are too wide and riun the beautiful sig...

anyways love them :love:

09-09-2007, 04:59 PM
These lines are there because the picture was too thin. xD and I can't work with smaller than 325X125 pixiles. xD

Thanks guys, your comments are so encoraging. :D


09-09-2007, 05:03 PM
Somehow I prefer the 2nd one than the first one though...looks less bright and mono coloured..The 1st one looks kinda busy and...yeah..small..still it's a great sig..

09-09-2007, 05:10 PM
These lines are there because the picture was too thin. xD and I can't work with smaller than 325X125 pixiles. xD

Thanks guys, your comments are so encoraging. :D


hmm i see what you mean but instead of just making them completely solid white you could like put some kind of pattern or brush or something so they don't look so boring :) that way the fat lines (omg :p fat lines:rolleyes2 ) could work out nicely...

09-10-2007, 11:20 PM
Yes, Tim I think that would have looked better, but guess I am too lazy to do that. lol
Thank you guys, very sweet of you to comment. ^__^

Two new, I don't like them very much though. :/



And this:
This is a very romantic movie, and I love it so much.

C&C is welcomed, feel free for whatever cross your mind. ;]


09-11-2007, 02:37 AM
woah! your sigs look so clear and ...... crisp! Beautiful! very beautiful!

09-11-2007, 04:01 AM
You're very talented. My favorite by far is the "Light Ball Fairy of Light" one.

09-11-2007, 09:57 AM
Where did you get the font for 'peace' at your banner! I've been looking for that one for months :(

09-11-2007, 10:55 AM
Thanks, Maybe_Tomorrow and Fire Breath Bowser. ^^ Very pleased you liked them. I make my sigs clean using the 'reduce noise' filter, it's very effective. ^^ Thankies again.

Polaris, I got that font from Dafont or maybe somewhere else, I don't remember, sorry!

09-11-2007, 11:16 AM
The 2nd version is nice..simple and clean..and the 2nd sig..er..maybe it's just me because it looks kinda hurtful to my eyes =X..sorry..maybe it's just me.

09-11-2007, 06:21 PM
i personally love the second sig, "Fountain", really great coloring :)

09-12-2007, 03:30 PM
Aww, thanks guys for the comments. ^^

New siggy, losing inspiration now. lol


And a DVD cover for the movie 'Perfume' My first try. ^^"


Thanks in advance! :)


09-12-2007, 07:27 PM
Beautiful! I really like how it fits together.... But If I may ask... why did you put credits at the bottom of the front side?

09-12-2007, 07:51 PM
Thanks! ^^
Well, the cover I have at home has credits at the front and the back so I thought it'd be no problem if I did the same. I hope it doesn't look bad. :/

09-12-2007, 11:03 PM
:monster: That Perfume one is cool. If I may ask, what font did you use for 'A Story of a Murder' on the front? :D

09-13-2007, 09:44 AM
Nice..looks so real =)

09-13-2007, 10:32 AM
I think you made a wonderful job on the DVD cover :D

09-13-2007, 11:36 AM
:monster: That Perfume one is cool. If I may ask, what font did you use for 'A Story of a Murder' on the front? :D

Hmm, it's name is 'Alien League' pretty nice font, one of my favs.

Thanks for the comments guys. ^^

09-13-2007, 11:50 AM
Cool. I just noticed I actually have that. And whenever I type my name, I use Alien Encounters. :greenie:

09-13-2007, 02:42 PM
That's cool. ^^

Ok, here's my second try at DVD covers. i am pretty proud of it. :D


C&C is very much appreciated. Thankies!!


09-13-2007, 04:31 PM
both covers are great although i like the Perfume one a bit more...

and a more minor note, on the last one i think you missed that the center part, (the back), isn't quite right... on the top it's a straight line but down it's bent... looks a little weird but it's just a minor detail... since you wanted comments :p

anyways looking forward to new work from you :)

09-13-2007, 06:48 PM
Well it looks like a picture of a DVD cover taken..nicely done.

09-13-2007, 07:30 PM
Seriously, your the best artist on here. If owen were still around, you would have surpassed him already.

09-13-2007, 09:38 PM
Do you do like graphic designing, like that, like for real???

You are my home slice, now.

09-13-2007, 10:01 PM
Oh, no I am still a student at college. I just love graphic and it's a way to spend my spare time. :)

Thanks people, you're comments are awesome! and Tim, I just noticed that, thanks for showing me I'll avoid it next time. ;) Thank you.

Thanks guys again!


09-13-2007, 11:28 PM
When are you going to give me my banner? I'm impatient lol j/k :love:

09-15-2007, 03:55 PM

I just realised that I haven't commented on your work White Dove. Can I just say that words cannot describe how amazing your designs are. They are things that I cannot even dream of doing.
I can't give you any tips, and I just want you to keep them coming.

Which PS do you use?

10-04-2007, 09:41 PM
Make more stuff! lol

11-29-2007, 02:19 PM
I agree... make more, I enjoy seeing your work. :)

01-09-2008, 08:21 PM
Awww, I am really sorry everyone for not coming here alot. I have had a very busy life, well, and more exciting than every. Anyway, I thank you all for all the great support and though I left you I longed to come back. I made many things while I was gone, but I'll post them slowly here. :)

I made this ID for myself to use in DA:

And I made a new game cover (Chaos Legion):

I am now more into Digital drawing than to Covers now, I am trying to draw with photoshop which is so much fun. ^^ I'll try and show you some later on.
Oh and my Photoshop's version is CS2!
Thanks again guys and so sorry for the delayed thanks. :(
It does feel good to be here again, wew.

01-09-2008, 09:31 PM
Awsome! :D You're brilliant honestly! :D

I've been checking your Da lately and it's full of cute stuff!:D

01-22-2008, 07:38 PM
wooow i can't believe how good you are...

you should post more stuff! :)

01-23-2008, 06:37 PM
Thank you, I just finished making this tut, it is about how to draw an eyeball from scratches in photoshop, those who use Gimp and know its secrets might be able to use this tut too. Hope it helps...

Drawing eyeball tutorial- Deviantart (http://whitedove15445.deviantart.com/art/Drawing-Eyeball-tutorial-75396329)

I also drew this image, I am kind of proud of it since this was my first try at drawing in photoshop:


any C&C will be appreciated, thanks guys. ^^

01-23-2008, 06:44 PM
Awsome specially because it was made from scratch! Just remove those thing in corners! They're doing nothing there ;)

01-23-2008, 06:45 PM
as awesome as always WD... although i think the white thingies in the bottom corners seem a bit out of place... nothing much to critisize otherwise... it looks great and the spheres are really cool :):):)

03-06-2008, 06:04 PM
Ok, I am back for good now and not gonna leave any soon cause second term holyday is starting soon. ^^ and I missed making sigs so I sat and made these few I hope you like 'em:



This is an old one, really :/
C&C please ^^

03-06-2008, 06:33 PM
I love the second one, first one is Idk I don't like colours but all of them are great :D *claps and bows*

03-06-2008, 08:30 PM
okay, great to have you back :):):)

hmm although the last three aren't exactly your best... the last one is a bit too messy, although the concept is nice. the second is okay but remove the black empty space to the right or at least add some text or whatever in it... and the first one is ok maybe but personally i think it's too messy although the effect is really cool, just maybe oo many colours that clash or something. the sigs aren't bad or anything just compared to your other ones, these aren't even close.

buuut that doesn't matter, as long as we get to see more new sigs from you :) welcome back and excuse my critique ^^"

03-14-2008, 08:28 PM
Hmmm, thanks guys for the comments, though I thought these three were my best so far 'Cause I have done so much editing on them, the colorful one took something like half an hour trying to place all C4Ds in the right place.
Anyway, I have made these three:

This one took a lot of smudging and the hair was originally not hers xD, not really good but it was a try, meh:

Grange, or a try at grange I think, this sig took alot of work, too.

This came out softer than I intended and the C4Ds are way too obvious than they should be, anyway, it took lots of work, too.

Thanks for any comments in advance. :)

03-14-2008, 10:06 PM
I like the 2nd one more! C4ds can be annoying sometimes I'm trying to fit some now but I just can't find one good enough :(

03-15-2008, 11:13 AM
Eww C4D. :(

You have some nice stuff going.

03-15-2008, 05:09 PM
Yeah, C4ds can be annoying, thanks guys for the comments. I made 3 more, my apitite is very open lately guess it's because I left sigging for a long while.




Er, so what do you think guys? ^^"

03-15-2008, 06:42 PM
all the last three are great... love the flipped part in the very last sig... and the text too... the avril is great, cool bubbly effect and great colors too... the evanescence one is a biiiiit too bleak... like kind of a lack of color, either add depth and darken somehow or add some color to contrast... or like increase the ones you already added... the red, blue, green and yellow spots...

and of the previous 3 i love the third one -the one "where there's love..." - it's reeeeally good... the second one is all grungy but a bit too plain... and first one isn't that good, kind of messy and a bit too smudged...

but love the latest ones :):):)

03-15-2008, 06:55 PM
First one, Amy lee pic is low quality! The rest is great :)

03-20-2008, 02:57 AM
Oh my god. I love you.

03-27-2008, 10:07 PM
Thanks guys, about the Evanescence one I guess that I rised its quality very much that it looks the opposite now xD, I over use 'Reduce noise' these days, I just can't stop myself. ^^"

I made two more siggies, not really big fan of them but I guess lack of inspiration again, God I hate THAT!

I tried a new style with this one, I think I'll make a tut out of it 'Cause it takes some work to make, anyway:

Original Image. (http://i210.photobucket.com/albums/bb247/White_Dove15445/635.jpg)

And I am totally in love with this cartoon movie, it's so sad and funny all the same so I couldn't resist, heh:

03-27-2008, 10:11 PM
I like the second one but in the first one there's smth lacking perhaps it's the blue you used for text that doesn't match!
Yeah second one is wayyyy better :)

04-01-2008, 07:54 PM
the latest two are GREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEAT :):):):):)

really awesome! love the blending and colors and the whole feeling of both of them , only thing i have to agree with Polaris that the blue text in the first should be another color, it clashes too much but the sig otherwise is lovely!

last one is :heart: :bigsmile:
