Anime Sigs: Bleach

Here's another set of Anime Sigs from the popular series, Bleach. I actually made these for my clanmates in one of the games I'm currently addicted to: MonstersGame. I used to play in 3 different servers but because of my work, I have decided to just concentrate on Server 4. Come visit me if you'd like! ^__^

Anyway, I'm a member of a clan of Werewolves, and three of my mates (plus me, and another one who changes names between Hitsugaya Toshiro and Crystys and Toshiro) have names from the Bleach series: Kurosaki Ichigo, Grimmjaw, Zaraki Kenpachi (retired). So I got inspired to make them sigs when I read the Arrancar arc of the manga (more kick a$$ fighting happens yahoo!).

Please click the thumbnails for a better view of the images:

Zarake Kenpachi: I was experimenting with the "quake" effect

Kurosaki Ichigo: My favorite sig! The black with the eyes background looks so nasty! In contrast to the person behind the character who is very gentle and sweet.

Zarake Kenpachi: I made this almost the same time as I made the Zaraki Kenpachi sig. That's because I found really cool fonts hehe

Anime Sigs: Death Note

I found a cool picture of Misa Amane and Light Yagami of the famous anime/manga, Death Note, from DeviantArt and decided to make an animated sig out of it. I used this as a sig for one of the Philippine Ragnarok Online message boards with the name "Despair" on it (My account name is despair ^^).

Personally, I like Light's "stalker" effect on the sig haha. Oh and btw, please let me know who the original creator of the image is so I may give them the proper credits. I made this sig a long time ago and I didn't take note of who the original artist is (Gomenasai -_-).

Personal Sigs: Cent

I made a sig for my good friend, Cent, for a local Philippine Ragnarok Online - Loki Server forum. He wanted to stress the fact that "Respect is earned" and not bought. And that even if you struggle or even suffer just to earn that respect, then that is enough and is most honorable.

The image I used is from the famous Japanese artist, Falcoon (Tatsuhiko Kanaoka).

Anime Sigs: Naruto

I found a really cute picture of Sasuke from the popular Anime/Manga, Naruto. (Forgive me for not noting who the image came from, and please do let me know if you have an idea who the creator of the image is so I can properly give him/her credit ^^) So I created a Sasuke sig despite the fact that I am not a fan of his. Hehe. Sorry Sasuke fans but my heart goes to Rock Lee!

Anime Sigs: Bleach

I'm a big fan of Bleach, most especially of the captain of the Shinigami 2nd Division: Soi Fon (also called Soifon or Soi Fong or Soifong sometimes). In fact, I named my character in one of the games I'm playing (MonstersGame) based on her. For that, I made some Soifon sigs for the MonstersGame forum (You may need to click the thumbnail to better see the animation):

Animated Sig

I especially like the barcode effect :)

Personal Sigs: patsilog

I also made some sigs for myself, in the forums that I often visit. The username I often use is "patsilog," thus most of my sigs have a mini-"patsilog" sign somewhere. ^^

This is the sig I made for my Friendster account and for a forum I used to visit (but unfortunately, I forgot about it now)

This is the sig I made for my Ragnarok Online guild forum (where my character's name is Natalie)

Personal Sigs: Boknoy TM

These sigs were created especially for my good friend, Bok (who goes by the name boknoyTM in TipidPC). He asked me to create a sig for him with a thumbs-up sign from any Bleach or Naruto character, and I found these two amazing pictures (search Google, you'll get a lot!). I couldn't decide which one to use, so I gave him 2 sigs instead. ^^

Introduction

Welcome to SigMachine!

In this blog, I will be posting my art works, more specifically, the sigs I've created for various forum. What exactly is a "sig," you ask?

Sig is the shortcut for SIGNATURE. Wiki describes it as: a block of text automatically appended at the bottom of an e-mail message, Usenet article, or forum post. But sigs aren't limited to text only. More often, users put images, icons, or logos on their signatures.

Making sigs has been a hobby since time immemorial. I've been so hooked to creating sigs for my friends, online buddies, or for those who don't know how to make one. Each time I see a cool picture, I often get inspired to make a sig out of it.

So this blog will be dedicated to all my works. Feel free to use any of my sigs, but please do ask for permission.

Enjoy!
