Personal Sig: Anabelle (Pt. 2)

Since the old sig I made didn't go well with light background, I decided to make another one. I used an image I downloaded a few years ago (Yes, I do keep downloads for that long), but unfortunately I was not able to take note of who the artist is. Sorry about that.

Without further adieu, here's a signature and avatar set I made:

The name of my character is Anabelle Rama, hence the name. For everyone's information, Anabelle Rama is a popular figure in the Philippines. She is mother to former Miss World Runner-up Ruffa Gutierrez and hunk actor Richard Gutierrez. She is always known for her fierceness and her being a "Bisaya" in Showbusiness.

Personal Sig: Anabelle

My name in Essence RO's forum is Anabelle, thus I made a sig. It's very simple but I love the colors (so girly and so pink). Unfortunately, it doesn't look good with white background. :(

Loading Screen Contest: Valentine Theme

The Ragnarok server I joined held another Loading Screen Contest for the month of February -- Just in time for the season of hearts. I really wanted to learn how to make chibi art, so I attempted to make loading screens and thus, I joined the contest. Again, the theme was anything related to Ragnarok and to Valentine season. Here are my entries:

Photobucket
This is the first loading screen I made. Cthulhu is my favorite MVP (no idea why), so I was inspired to make him all lovey-dovey for Valentines. I think I did pretty well with the characters, but over-all, this wallpaper lacked texture and depth. I could have added more scales to the Mermaid's fins, or more shadows and highlights, or more details to the undersea background.

Photobucket
Again, because Cthulhu is my favorite MVP, I made another wallpaper with him on it. This time, I experimented on shadows to add more depth, but I'm not really good at it. I think I made it look too cute -- and too plain.

Photobucket
This is probably one of the most time-consuming wallpapers I've ever made -- and from scratch too. I spent a lot of time working on the blacksmith, trying to get as much detail as I can. I think I did fairly well, but I've still got a long way to go. I love how this turned out to be so cutesy, and I also love the concept -- a regular character falling in love with an MVP. LOL. This entry won, and I got an event token for it. Yippee!

Photobucket
Finally, my last entry to the loading screen contest. I spent too much time working on the character (I found it really difficult to build this, I tell you), that I barely had time to work on the background and everything else. As a result, it's too simple, too plain, and too common. I thought this was my best work to date, but I guess it looked as if I didn't pour that much effort on it.

Again, if you're planning to play a mid-rate private server, please do join EssenceRO. It's a pretty balanced server with 3rd jobs and fun quests. And the community there is very helpful. Just drop by and PM my character, Anabelle Rama. =)
