Here’s my entry. It’s a coincidence, I did this one yesterday thinking about summer and got a lot of feedback from another site :P

Suggestions, tips, tutorials, etc will be appreciated :D Thank you in advance.

Is this theme just an excuse to post pictures of anime gurlz in bikinis?

Only time will tell.

I did have “Great sights at the beach” in mind,

if that’s what you’re asking.

;)

Pretty good Lightsun. Some C4D’s are on top of the render, you should try and erase them, but leave some at the bottum. Quite a basic Sig. You need to work on your blending skills, using techniques to blend your render in, so that it looks more natural. You should try a few GIMP Smudge tutorials and improve your Smudging skills.
Nice job with this Sig tho. xD

I just realized two things….

1) That doesn’t follow the size requirements.
2) That doesn’t fit the theme. >___>

Nice try, though.

I think her outfit and the color scheme easily makes it fit the theme.

Also: I think the dimensions should be amended to allow vertical sigs. The current dimension restrictions are just so we don’t get gigantic sigs. I think the dimensions should be able to be flipped if someone wants to do a vertical sig.

Requested and done.

Okay, the smudge in gimp is a lot better than In thought it would be, but I can’t find a render. Unless it doesn’t need one?

It is annoying in gimp where you save it as .xfc (?) and forget the PNG, I never did that in PDN.

BTW if anyone wants to finish this off in a collab, I will happily send them the file after SoTW has ended.

Edit:

Added a render

is it better?

Unless I’m misunderstanding, it is possible to go back to a .xcf file and save it as .png. Just open it back up, and get erase the .xcf, and replace with .png. You can not, that I’m aware of, change a .png to a xcf, however. So be sure to always save your .xcf. If I’m wrong, please correct me.

tutorial for glass/metal sig
The images from the original post seem to be gone, but you can piece it together by looking at some of the outcomes later in the thread.

tutorial for the render

Inspiration:

Summer: That line that divides missing your friends, and hating your teachers.

Summer: The time when all the adults go to work, dreading the fact that billions of kids are on vacation.

Summer: The time that you looked forward to an entire year, just to get grounded for that one C on the report card.

I could go on, but u’d get tired of it all =P

Najzere: Not bad ^^ i dunno if u should keep the girl tho… seems random in there…. but then again it can be left in and look just as well i suppose..

True, though it looks kind of empty with nothing. What I wanted to do was incorporate some kind of seaside landscape along the bottom, as though it was a beach, but I’m not that talented. :/

I’m not that good at judging art, but it looks pretty good.
The text looks right to me, but the plane doesn’t really look right. Did you make it your self? Anyway, it’s pretty decent, but I don’t really think it has anything to do with summer… Otherwise, it’s great.

Na, found it on WikiMedia :P Thanks for the CC. The idea was to go on a vacation.

So here’s my draft, yep it’s not very good and I honestly wasn’t motivated whilest doing it because my PC’s system is corrupted so I copy or paste or move files and my PC keeps crashing so this one here is about the 3rd attempt.
(I even had to copy out the link to image letter for letter >.<)

Nice entries people.
Love your Sesame, great job.
It’s quite a hard theme, I’ll try and enter this.

I wouldn’t be upset more disappointing. I always get high marks.
