Greetings and salutations.

Getting back into. You should all know the drill by now.

Follow the rules, which are conveniently similar to rules I had laid out long ago.

Simply put, you don't follow the rules, you get NOTHING. Good day, sir.
Said rules: http://www.smashboards.com/threads/173808/

Please use the following form when making a request. No form, see above.

Image: Please provide an image, or at least an idea of an image. I don't want to spend my time looking for one. This includes any backgrounds, too.

I thought I had a statement on here about using one image, but I guess I didn't. I made a post about why I prefer one image. You can read that here.

Size: Self explanatory. 420-x160 is what I usually work in. I can do larger, but (XYZ)x160 is the maximum height allowed on SWF (at least it was before they switched servers/services. Could be different now. I dunno.
Colors: If any thing specific. Here's the thing; I recommend suggesting colors that are included with your image (Example: If Sheik's outfit is blue, I would say go with blue colors). Not always necessary, but suggested. You can also just tell me to "Go nuts". At which point I will go all Artistic on it, using my style and what have you. I prefer this too, obviously. I do my best work this way.
Text: Do you want some sort of text on the sig? Your name? Some poem, or jazz? Let me know. I prefer to do as little text as possible. It can ruin sigs.
Avatar: Do you want an avatar to go with your sig? Just say yes or no.

EXAMPLES OF MY WORK:

Oh cool! All right I'm going to make my request then :) I'll combine the two forms since I'm supposed to use both, haha!

Size: I'll leave this up to you since it doesn't matter to me but perhaps one size may be more manageable for you than another.
Basic Colour Ideas: Pink!
Theme: Just a sig with Peach and my username on it (if that's even a theme :p)
Text/Formatting: Just have "Aleate" somewhere in whatever form you think will fit in!
Background Ideas: Something Pink to match my Melee and Brawl main! Or go nuts!
Images or Characters: It's hard to find good Peach pictures but I did find: http://alpha920.deviantart.com/art/Princess-Peach-268951342 but I'll be happy with anything that's not too crazy.
Frame or No Frame: Frame please!
Avatar: Sure!

I guess that's it. Thanks a lot for having this shop and I'm excited to see the result! :)

Ahh that looks awesome! I didn't even think about the fact that the avatar would have the same picture as the signature so if I used both, it may seem a little weird. I hope you don't mind if I just use one of the two images at any given time :( (But really, I love what you did so thanks a ton!)

Greetings mister Odin!

I am under the impression that you are (regardless of the date of your commencing post on the initiation of the signature shopping) occasionally browsing the forums (last seen on Saturday; woopwoop ;D), and therefore request your services as digital artist!

Basically, I'm fairly new to the forums and trying to develop a certain kind of characteristic image of my digital identity; perhaps you can discern the endeavour to find a font-coloring that matches with my oh so sublime avatar? ^^
Evidently, I am a big fan of the Metroid series, and Ridley as prime antagonist within the game in particular. I hence seek to emphasise this affinity by having a suitable signature to go along with the current features. And after desperately browsing default signature generators, free signature-creators and whatnot, I suddenly stumbled upon the Artwork Emporium, guiding me to this thread (and associated threads). And believe me; it was such a liberating revelation! I mean, what a service: inserting an amalgamation of preferences into a 'black box' and getting an artistically composed product delivered consequently (N.B.: Let me be clear; I am indubitably not considering you to merely be a black box, but I am trying to say that the medium is fairly opaque and that's what makes this such an intriguing system).


Thus far a little background information on 'how' and 'why'
Now onwards to the 'what'!


Preferential factors (I reckon that I should solely limiting myself to the exhaustive list as provided by you):

Image: I have done my homework! I've found some significant images which already convey a detailed image of what I'm looking for in a signature. The thing is however, I've got 2 separate images that I would like to see in one image, and I need those images to coalesce flawlessly, with incorporation of a small textual unit. This would constitute your task obviously ;D
I sincerely hope that you can work with the sizes of the images provided by, because I find them so gorgeous ;3 Anyways, see the links below:

Image #1 (colorwise the most significant image)
http://fc06.deviantart.net/fs71/i/2012/235/5/1/dark_samus_returns_by_rundash-d4w581v.jpg
Image #2
http://gamerfront.net/wp-content/uploads/2011/04/Ridley-Fan-Art.jpg
(Image #3, yes I've also got another image which would correspond more eminently with my 'actual' main character which isn't power suited Samus but ZSS, of course.. If you can do something - like a blurred image of the face of the next image - with it, be my guest and be as creative as possible!)
http://fc01.deviantart.net/fs39/i/2009/362/5/e/Corrupted_Samus_by_Daniel_Link.jpg

Size: This is an ambiguous part for me as I'm not really heightened of the forum technicalities in regard of signature possibilities. The default frame of 420 x 126 (inferring from your examples) seems fine to me in fact. I hope however that you can fit my provided images into that one signature by editing the size.. ;/
Colors: Accordingly; darker blue, but also a brighter blue (for highlighting and contrast), black, darker shades of grey, incidental ruby spherical units (radiating orbs or so). I guess you kind of get the idea of what I'm opting for colorwise. It's basically the coloring used in the images. Oh and please note: I would really appreciate it if you could somehow implement a bit of purple (any shade, preferably some tint which resembles my font coloring / avatar color).
Text: Right, a fairly delicate factor, as indeed it could completely ruin the signature. I hence chose to prefer solely my forum name with a minor addition to it; instead of inserting 'Saimunn93', I'd really appreciate it if it could be 'ZSSaimunn93'. I thought it'd be a playful conjugation of my main character, with my forum name and corresponding signature ;D
Avatar: Lovely additional service, but no thank you!

Right, I suppose that this is the epitome of my intentions, request and preferences..
I genuinely hope for your response, approval and most of all; willingness to rise up to the challenge!

If there are any further questions, do not hesitate asking. I'll be lurking on the forums!

Thanks in advance!

EDIT: Sorry for the wall of text O_O
Once I finished the post and submitted, I got astonished by how long-winded it was... Anyway I tried to be as elaborate as possible :3

EDIT EDIT: I've found more neat footage of miss dark-Samus ;o It's an image from which you could like only like cut the head of dark samus (with the radiating blue eyes) and somehow fit it in the signature, for instance. Anyways; try your best and if it doesn't work, ah well.. It's just bonus

.. I am astounded by the terrific composition and transitional blending of colors!
I like it how the grim silhouette of Ridley suffuses Samus, it suits the malevolent glare of her eyes :3

Also the coloring of the background is precisely what I was hoping for; it resembles the cosmic environment
in which Samus thrives. Moreover, it contains all of my preferences, and I acknowledge the difficulties to work
with more than one image, let stand to implement a (remaining) third image into the signature.

I am more than satisfied with this image and I would hereby like to genuinely thank you for your time, effort and
naturally; the artistic product!

Image:These might give you an idea: http://www.push-start.co.uk/wp-cont...rus-Uprising-Gameplay-Trailer-and-Details.jpg

I chose this image to give you an idea of what I want. I'd actually love to have that background of that image, That probably will be really hard to do, actually. I don't think it's possible to get the whole thing, because pit and dark pit are in the way. ;-; Do you think it's possible you could re-create it or something? Also, give it something of your own twist if you want to.

Now, let me find some images that you could put into there: I'd also like pit in my signature, and I love claws in Kid Icarus: Uprising, so here's this too: http://www.creativeuncut.com/gallery-20/art/kiu-pit-tiger-claws.jpg You don't need to fit the whole image of this into the sig. His left arm should work just fine in the picture. As long as you get his face, the claw(s), and maybe a bit of his wings, I think it'd look great!

Size: Whatever works for you. (and the sites limitations)

Colors: Like I said about the background.

Text: I guess just put my username in there, wherever is looks good.

Avatar: Nah.

If this isn't good enough, I guess I should do more research.

Glad you like it! ^_^ I'm glad everything worked out.

Let me know what you think.

I had an idea with this one, so here goes:



That one should fit the SWF sig size. Here's another I did, with all of the claws.

I doubt it will fit in the sig space.



But there you go.

Wow, looks really good! :3 Although, can you keep the claws in the box art? I don't like it going outside of it. ;-; It looks weird. But other than that, it looks great! :D

Oh, and can you put the name a little bit more to the left, under the claw?

Hello! I highley admire your work and would be honored if you'd do the favor of creating me a signature!

Image:http://i.imgur.com/BFpBqCr.png?1 : Main Image
For this one, I would like to know if you could maybe, turn the cyan-ish color of the yoshi to dark blue and position the yoshi either all the way to the left or right?. Maybe you could also make the colors surrounding the yoshi dissolve or kind melt into the background?

http://i.imgur.com/YDKnWtp.png
For this one could you put it somewhat visible in the background? ie. slightly faded but visible

Umm, ok, LET'S TRY THIS AGAIN, LOL.

More like this:



Right where the red spot is. :I
Noted. I'll take care of it tomorrow. T_T Off to bed for now. Sorry about that.

Wow these sigs are awesome! :O I must request one *-*

Image: http://th09.deviantart.net/fs70/PRE/f/2010/035/9/a/Arcane___White_Mage_by_kokabaal.jpg
I would like the White Mage in this picture to be on the right side of the sig, and if you could make the "magic" more of a white glow and less of a gold, that would be great... Also if you could work with the design on the hammer to make it a cross, I would LOVE that. You could probably just add a couple silver dots on the side of the big one and it would work. Optionally, if possible could you add some red triangles on the hood? (unless it doesn't look good xD) :p
Text: I would just like it to say White Mage somewhere, lol. If you can i would love it to be in the Kingdom Hearts font

Size: whatever works
Avatar: yes please :3








Colors: Uhhh Something along these lines I guess, or whatever you think would look good.

You could probably turn one of these on its side and go from there xD I just wanna represent the powerful yet subtle and peaceful presence of light in a White Mage. Just something that isn't so dark like the original pic.

Wow so you are the man of fable O D I N I thought I'd never see the day when me and you would meet. I hear you create top-class signatures and I was wondering if you have any time on your hands if you are available to do my avatar the one I hqve right now is just so Meh not all that proud of it and I'm sure a man of your talent could surely do much better than this. I realize you have a full plate but if you have the time it would be Much appreciated. Since I don't know the protocol for this I'm willing to wait but all you really need to know is I like Mario, crash bandicoot, and conker alsoi secound diddy if you ever get the time I'll be back but for now I'll just wait. I'll give you more details too. Bye

Alrighty I read all your rules and found some pictures online that you can work with(bear with me here because this is my first time doing this)first allow me to provided the pictures so you may get a general feel for what I'm aiming at here. There is the background I seek for some reason swf won't letme post pictures so this may take a minute. cool_backgrounds_hd.jpg
