Yup, you read it right, this months contest theme is games.

Any kind of games. From the computer games (from Pong and Pacman to Doom and Final Fantasy) to the analog kind (Chess, Rock - Paper - Scissors, Bridge, Monopoly, Basketball, Playing hard to get), anything goes.

The usual applies: No recycles, and keep the discussion this thread and the sigs in the other one.

Bring it on!

Great theme : in the logical extension (is the word appropriate in this context?) of your SE-mahja-GA sig.

Lacuna: Good idea and execution, but that's not really a sig

Hey all,

As I have said before I am a sucker for the simple yet poignant sigs so I thought I would start with this simple one... Talk about nostalgia! Woo hoo, Someone give me a rock to throw!

Ok, the kid is on a roll... I think it was all the time last month judging with the pent up creative energy not being able to enter a sig myself that will make me submit a couple or three this month... Hope I don't get on anyone's nerves.

Anyway, here is my next entry...

hey... at least take the time to build up that "Jung" text . I'm sure it can be done. If you play your cards right, you only need to use a couple of colors (maybe 8 or so) in the animation, so you'll have plenty of frames to animate.

(Yup, sue me. I'm a "quality over quantity" type of guy )

Jung: Nice sig. The antialiasing on the font looks a bit weird though.
Actually you're getting on my nerves as I wanted to do a Tetris sig where the pieces would fall and build a shape with my name.

Skaarjj: Really nice sig. The colors and typos works like a charm with the Asylum. The only cons is the difficulty do distinguish the figure in the middle of the 20 facets dice.

I X I: good idea, but white backgrounds are difficults to tackle with with the dark color scheme of the Asylum.

mahjqa: I wonder if you made the appearance and disappearance of the letters in your SEGA sig by hand or if there's some kind of magic trick. I'm not talking about the rotations, but specifically about how the white and blue bands go. Whatever, it rocks!!!

that's what's on just about every 20-sided spin-down die I've ever came across (MtG, no DnD for me...)

I've never played to an RPG and there's no dices in the MMORPG. I guess the figure is 2 dragons face to face or something like that.

outcydr: try adding in a few more frames to smooth out the animation a bit, it's looking kind of jumpy

something I like doing when working with rotation is take the number of frames you have for the rotating action and divide it into 360 (or 180 depending)


pay no attention to the jaggies

the IXI in the center moves 9 degrees over 20 frames, making for a smoother animation

(I'm sure you already knew all of that, but just in case)

thanks IXI. i know the first one is jumpy; added some blur to the second one to try and remedy that without increasing the file size very much. is it still too jumpy?

By hand, wasn't any other way. I just started out with the full letter, then cut it off part by part. After that, I reversed the animation. Not really that hard, just a bit work-intensive. The rotation and zooming was done with [edit>transform].

IXI: I have happy memories of that skiing game. Can't you do something with the big grey monster?

EzRa, I dig that pixeled sig you made.

Outcydr: [Filter>blur>radial blur is what you're looking for, I think. Or, for an even better result:



1) put your bottle in a SQUARE canvas. Fill the background with #2B0404, and merge the bottle layer with the background.
2) [filter>distort>polar coordinates]. Setting: rectangular to polar.
3) [filter>stylize>wind].
4) [filter>distort>polar coordinates]. Setting: polar to rectangular.
5) you're going to have to cut out the background of #2B0404 to make your animation transparent, though. I recommend [select>color range].

If you want know what polar coords does I'd look it over either at guru's or the help manual... What it basically does: it folds a square space to a circle, like this.

If you have any more questions, just ask.

much activity since last I was here, that's always good to see

I've been playing around with filters all FRIKKIN night, not doing anything productive, but I'm fidna get to work on my skI-X-Ing sig right about now... will upload what I get done over the original, so just check it out up there or over in the contest sig

outcydr: your image is still fairly small at 26k, and the spin is pretty smooth in your second try, but a few more frames would go a long way IMO

mahjqa: THA YETTI!!! yeah, I'll have to put him in

Which is, of course, entirely the reason these discussion threads were created in the first place. There's always going ot be more sigs here than in the entries thread becuase people will post WIP here, and may post a sig at different stages several times.

[Dr]bologna;

Glad you like it here! I'm not really sure wether your sig is posted in the right place... You did get it to the right forum. (***WARNING*** BIG SIG APPROACHING)

However, this thread is for the monthly sig contest we have. This month's subject is Games, read the first post for all the info. If you want us folks to review your sig, just post a thread of your own.

I dig your sig, though. One thing that could spice it up is some nice gif transparency, as the forums here don't have black as a background color (although it may seem that way when your monitor is set too dark)

For more info on GIF transparency, check here
