    Thank you. I use Photoshop CS2.

    I'm starting an Eeveelutions avatar set, so expect more on that front.

    I love those pokemon icons, the images are interrgrated well and the textures are not overdone either =]
    It's a pity you don't take requests anymore, though i can understand why you don't

    Thanks . I've been trying to reign myself in more lately on the texture-front so I'm glad it shows.

    ...thing is, I almost wouldn't mind doing requests for avatars. I like making avatars and wallpapers about ten times more than I like making banners, and avatars have the edge of not taking me nearly as long as wallpapers. But it seems like most people want banners. So I probably won't go back to that any time soon.

    Besides, I like making stuff for me again

    I heard from Sweet May that you made good stuff, but wow. These look great.

    Your avatars are perfect. The colors seem to compliment the pictures. The texture-font you used were amazing, each style suits its avatar, making it look better and more appealing.

    But this avatar:
    looks too... 'purple'ish in my opinion.

    Your banners are good, too, although not as good as your avatars. That's all I have to say for the banners, sorry D:
    But, "The Last One Left Smiling" banner was a bit...scary. Well, the head in the clouds that is. XD

    The wallpapers are great. I like the second wallpaper you posted in your recent batch the most, because I was fascinated by the sky. Is it alright if I use that background?

    Thanks

    Yeah, I get what you're saying about the avatar. I made it from one of my walls and wanted it to have a really different look from it. May have gone too different. I am fond of purple though >D

    Scary was the idea of "The Last One Left Smiling" banner. Tapping into Xellos's dark side there.

    And yes, feel free to use the wallpaper. I'm all for people using my stuff if they want to.

    Lmao. I never was fond of those types of avatars, mainly because they focus on one color. But still, it's better than what I've made, lol.

    I'm just curious though, what made you start doing gfx? O:

    Because I wasn't ever very good at drawing and I needed some way to express my fangirliness over Kurama from Yu Yu Hakusho XD

    So... yes, I don't really need it in that capacity anymore, but it became a fun hobby/compulsion.

    ^ Probably one of my favourites.

    Just wanted to say that I love the things you make, Skiyomi! Especially all of your Slayers graphics. (yay for Slayers!)

    Hey again, Skiyomi! As usual your stuff is amazing needs more Code Geass D: but I had a specific question.

    How'd you do this on this avatar:



    The blushing only being the highlight? I'm trying to do the same thing for the Lelouch avatar in my signature but I can't figure it out. ><;

    There are different ways you can do it. What I did was add a new layer, fill it with white, and set it for "Hue". Then I carefully erased the parts of it over the blush.

    I'll definitely have to try that when I get Photoshop! I'd tried it once before with an old copy of CS2 and couldn't ever figure it out!

    Thanks! :)

    Hope it works out. And I may well start a Code Geass avatar set or something~

    Though my graphic to fanfiction ratio has been moving steadily to fanfiction. But that's cool: I like writing fanfiction better.

    Thanks!

    Actually I can't stand the bright thing myself. :/ I just couldn't get rid of it on the original image.

    Your wallpapers are great, I love the Ghastly-evolution line wallpaper. Out of the three wallpapers this one is my favourite. The first wallpaper almost got me in trouble with mom, lol.

    The Gravity avatar is simple, yet it is effective. I like how the text gets smaller, kinda like an upside-down pyramid.

    The third avatar, well, how can I put this nicely... looks like all you did was take a picture from the series and scale+crop it down D:

    As for the reptile avatar.... *calls you a reptile* :3 *shot*

    The curiouser avatar is really good. Out of these avatars you just posted, this is my third favourite. I love the blue colors you used, and the text 'curiouser & curiouser' really fits the image. You seem to have this talent of entering the fitting text :P

    The last avatar is good. I like how the letters in it have... a 'border' on them. Think you can teach me sometime? :3


    Your wallpaper... isn't it the one you used in WBC 90? It looks bright. Really bright. The font style and the text itself, however, cover up for that flow, but the wallpaper is still not good. ):

    The third avatar actually has a lot of color/contrast work on it. I didn't want to do much beyond that, because I wanted to focus on Gourry's expression, and not just show off XD

    I was lucky with the text on that 'to make fun of me' avatar. It's exactly what she says at that moment :P. Oh, and I used 'Selective Color' and 'Replace Color' on it. Not Color Balance.

    Oh, adding borders to text is really easy in Photoshop CS2. Enter your text, right click on the layer, select 'Blending Options', then go down to 'Stroke' in the menu that pops up. Then you can fiddle with how you want the border to look. That's all there is to it!

    Yeah... I didn't really like that wall either. But I do have a weakness for bright images.

    Today's been a busy week and much more for writing than graphics. Here's the little I've got...

    ^.

    Maybe try darkening the edges a bit more, or just tone it down
