    Apologies for the late announcement, again. I was overwhelmed with work responsibilities over the weekend. I've always wanted to do a Ghibli themed round. I wonder what movies participants will pick ^^

    I'm in the process of making an entry for Round 79, but it doesn't look like anyone else is participating. Please respond if you're planning on making an entry for Round 79 as well! I'll make an extension to the submission period! If not, Round 79 will be cancelled because we need at least 2 participants to continue onto voting.

    Geez, it's been ages! Glad you are alive, guys! Excited for the new challenge! If everything goes well, I hope to participate!

    I'll help when I can.

    Hello Dead group!
    I wanna revive this group, but need at least another member to help me! :D
    So, I'm gonna join here, and hoping that we'll have some more matches in future soon! :D

    Sup, s20. I'm not very active on MT anymore, so won't be able to help out or organize things as often as I had been. This group was the first group on MT that I was really active in. This is the group that inspired me to start making graphics, and it was the members of this group that encouraged me to continue doing so. In short, I don't want to see this group die.

    Let's talk about what kind of schedule will work for you all. I'm thinking once a month, because I think that's how often I can sit down and commit to organizing a signature challenge.

    Hi there!

    TheCompiler led me to this group and I say I'm interested. Hoping to have fun with you guys!

    Thanks :D

    Don't worry about it ^^ I should have been here to help out in the first place.

    Hi chan, if you need any help then please ask me. Ok? ^^

    hi chan, please save my signature to imageshack anonymously like melymay san does. I tend to reorganise my files on photobucket and the link gets changed. Or else i'll do that when you make those small er.. siglets for hall of fame preview xD

  12. melymay Apr 02, 2013

    Yes, thank goodness. I'd feel so useless if I didn't have some sort of image editor.

    It's awesome to see her around again ^^ I've already PMed a moderator about my situation - so embarrassed right now. This is the second time it has happened. I just get "trigger-happy" with my mouse sometimes ;___;

  13. TheCompiler Apr 01, 2013

    Quote by melymayI agree. It really gave her sig this old school oriental feel.

    I lucked out on my submission. The image editor I use (GIMP) uninstalled somehow, so I lost all of the brushes downloaded. I lucked out when with a preset brush that was the right colour, and blurred and randomized each sparkle location for me :'D

    Thingperson is back?! Have you talked to her recently? Maybe her sister will drop by too, lol.

    merged: 03-31-2013 ~ 08:09pm
    I left the group again T____T

    Good thing that GIMP is free ^^;
    No, she posted that she's back in the tag-licious group. And it seems good that she's back, you can ask her to add you again ^^;
    (how many times has it happened by now? xD)

    I liked how hi chan used the perfect font to type in the square :O
    i liked the idea of a special square over pic for text too
    and I like how you blurred some sparkles to give a 3rd dimension to your round 66 sig ^^
    So good luck to all participants ^^
    (btw, i heard thingperson san is back. She might wanna participate in next round? :D)

  16. melymay Mar 27, 2013

    Heheh :P Never sell yourself short.

    Aw man, that probably has it down sides. I can't imagine how many layers there are when you're making something from scratch. You could always play it safe and make a new top layer.

  17. TheCompiler Mar 26, 2013

    Quote by melymayNot true at all! You say that like you haven't won several rounds yourself :P

    I layered solid white over the butterflies, then used a Gaussian Blur set to 11px. Changing the layer opacity or mode could also help too (I don't have the file on me right now, but I think I used either the Soft Light or Hard Light setting).

    stop that flattery xD xD
    hm.. i had tried soft light and hard light too.. idk.. maybe i got confused cuz i had made many layers and painted on them randomly -.-'
    I need to make my sig layers more organized, it becomes so confusing to add some effects at the end cuz of that >__<'

  19. TheCompiler Mar 25, 2013

    See? I'd told you it's easy to win against us ^^;

    btw, how could you make those butterflies glow? I wanted to do that too. I put a white dot on a new layer above the parts i wanted to glow... but it didn't quite work :\

    I'm so happy right now. I didn't think I could pull through with a grayscale theme.

  21. TheCompiler Mar 13, 2013

    good luck ^_^

  22. melymay Mar 13, 2013

    Me too. Making it right now >__<

  23. TheCompiler Mar 10, 2013

    good idea ^^
    which reminds me.. i must start making that super smash bros sig o:

    Quote by TheCompilernaah.. maybe it's because of what we consider as 'good', your standards must be higher than mine =.='

    That might be it, but it's hard to say. I never like any of my black and white stuff enough to actually submit them for anything. May be I should make the challenge a black and white challenge so you can judge for yourself :')
