Okay just curious what people here think of them. I hosted some newer and some older here. For the sigs (even though they're semi random) some of the newer better ones are towards the end.

I'm gonna re-post the sect user bars I did here too. Remove the asterisk to post them in your signature areas. Try not to link to the user bars in Photobucket since if I hosted for people there they'd eat my bandwidth limit like candy.

Any and all comments welcome. I'm curious if there is any interest in this community on such things also. (the sig i'm wearing now is the first one I ever made)

Apparently signatures are limited. Sorry to those who can't use the graphics ones. I'd still be curious to know what people think of the ones on my photobucket account!

So is there some kind of trial period for this site because I can't edit my profile settings to allow the IMG code in my sig.

Oh shoot I forgot about that (no it's not a trial period it's just different).

At the bottom under the white area...
Upload Signature Picture
You may upload a new custom image using the controls below.

Option 1 - Enter the URL to the Image on Another Website

paste the code in this area i believe. (without the IMG tags)

Tell me if that's what it is so I can edit out the img codes.

In Edit signature all it says under the white area is...

Signature Permissions

Allow BB Code No
Allow HTML No
Allow Smilies No
Can Upload Images for Signature No
Can Upload Animated GIF for Signature No

and I can't change anything to where I can make it say yes.

Ahh there must be a wait limit or something then, I guess it makes sense this forum has been attacked a few times.

Only elite members are allowed to have sig. pics if I remember correctly. BUT nice job on the sig-bars, the orc sect one looks sick. Really wish they would change the system to something 'easier' to attain such as post count, rather than user rep.

Aametherar
03-01-2010, 09:59 PM
Ahh dang, it does make sense being limited, the idea of post count based is a good one. I may have to make a dawn of fantasy one for other forums then so everyone has one to use, i'm not sure about that though, they have their own graphics designers if they want one and i'm sure they'd want it to look really good. I do like making sigs though which is why I posted my photobucket, even uploaded a bunch of old ones there just to see what people think.

I always figured elite status was based on rep. seeing as all of the elite members ive seen have two rep bubbles, and everyone else i see only has one.

To clarify: would you like the other thread to be deleted? You never actually specified.

Oh, yeah puppet, thanks! No sense in wasting space (=. Anyone else here make sigs?

Elite members have the rep system working the same as normal members, The pips display your rep. You do not earn elite membership by having good rep, the elite members were picked from among prominent members of the DOF forums as another line of defense against future spam and such that will occur closer to release.
Elite members have often earned their place as such by pointing out to staff/mods where spam, flaming, etc has occured. Elite members have responsibility to point out things that are harmful/breach the code of conduct, however they get no special allowances for this, they are no more important than anyone else.

Also although elite members do have the ability to have sigs, if they are unacceptable then these privelages will be removed. Many elite members do not use sigs though (But to be fair, im not sure many have the skills of Aametherar, no offence guys!!! :))

I've seen some awesome sigs around with animated reflective water and decided to give it a shot. I have 4 techniques lined up I want to learn them all to figure out what's best for me and what's best for what. Needless to say here's my first attempt. The picture dimensions ended up where I had to zoom out so much for a forum sig the water didn't turn out the way I planned and moves much too violently, but like I said first attempt.

I also tried this one, but without a waterline connecting to land i'm unhappy with the results, plus I don't like the way the ripples themselves turned out as they don't fit right with the picture. But again I was more experimenting than trying to perfect it at this point.

Like I said i've seen a few here and there, they're not too common, but this is the latest one I saw that finally made me say "you know what, i'm gonna go learn to do that". As you can see I have a lot of work to do before I come up with anything that looks as good as this one.

Those looked pretty good, still. I think you show definite potential. this is coming from a person who would stand a 0% chance of doing anthing remotely similar. I think the first two were okay, but had definite problems.

The first on did not move enough, the second one moved too much, too regularly.

Aametherar

I think anyone who tried could learn it, everything i've learned regarding photo manipulation and the use of art programs was self taught. Also thanks, realistic looking water has been a plague on artists for a long time, from drawings, to movies, to computer games.

P.S. Before anyone tries to count the flakes, there's 5,000.

I think part of the problem with your second one was that you started with a picture of water - it already had ripples. Thus, when you added the ripple effect, the stationary ripples make it look messed up. In the third picture, thare are no statinary ripples, just the rippling reflection.

Aametherar
03-07-2010, 09:19 AM
I agree 100% I noticed it after the fact (the large one was actually created first). It's something i'll pay attention to more in the future. Plus the ripples are going in different directions which makes it look even more odd.

This one's somewhere just north of 50,000 snowflakes, just for the hell of it.

Note:I didn't do the image itself just the flakes because I thought it would be funny and was taking a little break.

2 more from my "water project". I think they look much better.

Ok those are nice. Comments- The first one has too strong and large of waves for a river that small. If you look at rivers that move fast they have small ripples or if they move slow you barely see any.

I like the second one. Only thing is the water haves no ripples. The way the water looks is that the background image should be closer to the shore. The farther out you go from the shore, the more ripples you see.

Good job though. Hope to see more. I hope my commments don't upset you.

Hmmm .. that forest picture looks familiar =P (if you type forest into google its on first site)

http://www.interweb.in/attachments/pc-wallpapers/15491d1221474293-nature-wallpaper-forest-wallpaper21.jpg

Tho i remembered it cuz was looking little time ago for some inspiration in my own forest painting =P. Beside those last pictures look really nice.

Aametherar
03-11-2010, 03:48 PM
Yep Kire, and same goes for "mountains" lol. I wasn't too creative today my main goal was first to add water to a picture that had none (the forest) then just try one where I thought the waterline would fit easily.

Also I actually like how fast the water is moving the mist in the back makes it feel like there's a waterfall indicating the water would be moving at a decent speed. That's just my opinion though. Also I agree about the reflection on the mountain one, that bothered me too, another thing i'll be sure to avoid in the future. I love the friends sig I made though because it manages to capture both our personalities so well, probably the simplest sig ive ever done, but I still love it :D.

Henry Martin

What I was saying is that for that speed, the waves should be smaller/tighter. The speed is fine just the waves. When water is moving faster you see small tight ripples and when it moves slower you get slow large ripples.

Ahh I see what you're saying, you're right! Hmmm. Darn! heheh.

Not much to it but I love it, I did lighting, color, effects and the glass looking thing. I like it cause the model looks kinda like the person i made it for and it fits their name, I had to go with red.

Haven't you seen newly become zombies those that were just bitten, if you see them from the right angle they can look pretty much like a human. Also its easy to mistake one for human if she was just transformed and the wound is hidden:p
