    Signature Sizes

    Now recently I've been getting a little frustrated with small signature designing. Especially like the ones we have here on AO. I know that I might be one of few who think the limit is a little too low so you can't even set a decent widescreen image but oh well.

    For instance, I made a signature that looks pretty cool in a larger size yet when I set it to AO size, it really looked horrible. So I had to rearrange everything and move away a little bit from my original design. It really does change how the signature looks over all. For instance;

    TO
    (my current signature)

    Now this could be because I've now gotten used to making wallpapers in a much bigger size so I have lot of space to work with. So moving back down to a 130x400 image is rather a challenge.

    Now my question to all you Digital Artists is what is your prefered signature size that you work in?

    Personally, I prefer 200x400, sometimes I make it wider if I want but thats the most frequent resolution I use.

    Re: Signature Sizes

    I understand how you feel Sazzy. I feel the size is a bit small. That's why I don't make that many sigs anymore on AO. I find myself making way more sigs on my other sites because they excede our own size limit. I like how they come out, becuase they look better!! Like this sig for instance:


    One sig that I feel like I actually did good on:


    Sadly I can not use it. I'm to afraid what resizing it would do. My perferance in sig size is usually 450x200. But that's because I use it everytime. I just like the height to be around 200. Other than that everything is fine.

    Re: Signature Sizes

    Hmm, a good question. I don't think I have a preferred size because usually I pick out an image to work with and base my canvas around it. Lots of the images I use also don't have lots of flailing hair and other noise which makes small resolution easier. Plus I'm more into spritestyle.. so pretty much in the 400x100 territory and 100+ if the effects are going to be hectic.

    All the larger tags I make I post here but I'm cool with not using them in the forum. I don't prefer large canvas 'cause I suck at filling in all that space n.n

    Re: Signature Sizes

    thank you both for replying. I just wonder where have all the other GFX people gone???

    I'm not only talking about signatures but I do include wallpapers too. At the moment I seem to working on wallpapers that are 1900x 1200 even though my desktop is only 1680x1050.

    When it comes to vector's I tend to go as big as possible, so its easier to scale them down to any size people want. I think its around 5493x3??? it seems to be a good size to get enough detail in too.

    I'm sorry, I didn't see this when it was posted up ... ;^;
    Well anyways, I agree with you Sazzy, I never have enough space to really put those details I really want.
    I have a lot to place in the signature so it gives us the freedom to do so instead of cropping the hell out of the signature. The biggest size I've used was



    There's just more we actually want to add ... and it goes too for the signature contests. I mean, if we really want to get into the competition, give us our space to work on so we can make the best we can.

    Re: Signature Sizes

    I'm kind of mixed.

    I can understand how sometimes working on a small piece is rather frustrating (especially after working with bigger wallpapers, I get that a bit xD). but, I don't mind the small sizes sometimes, I've seen some pretty smick tiny signatures, I haven't been able to make one myself yet xD but, that's another thing I'm working on. Mostly I'm like flawed..whatever the image suits I use

    Re: Signature Sizes

    I prefer making smaller signatures, so far I have only made them 400w x 100h. I think it makes them look slim and sleek. Plus its less for me to mess space for me to mess up on. haha

    Signature is a Gwenibe original.

    Re: Signature Sizes

    the limited space always challenged me to kind of make my effects more concentrated.. or more focused. then again, that's like 3/4 spritestyle.

    now that everyone's all for large canvas i seem to be unable to deal with 130 height. bigger size is spreading like swine flu.
