Hello dearest friends, the old and the future ones! As you can see I have crawled out from my comfy little hole in the ground and returned to WoW. Still not exactly back in full force, but I do miss playing my characters, particularly my priests and of course my hunters. I can’t believe it’s been about four years since I was consistently active on these forums! And almost two years since I was a regularly subscribing WoW player in general. Time certainly flies. There were some personal things that pushed me away and I lost all interest for the game for a time. I tried to return for Warlords, but it didn’t last more than a month before the game depressed me and I went back to cycling between GW2, Wildstar, and Sims 4. But yeah, a lot has changed for me since I was last seen here. I got married in 2014, and am working as a dental assistant full-time while pursuing a dental hygiene degree as well. I’m slowly chipping away at my pre-reqs before I can get accepted into a program, so I have about another year before that happens. Anyway, Legion looks promising to me, and I have resubbed with a hope to keep playing in the spare time that I have. I also missed playing around in WMV and making signatures. I will be honest, there was a couple times since 2012 that I wanted to make them again, particularly during MoP when I was very active, but WMV just wouldn’t cooperate, so it never happened. But guess what?! It is totally working like it used to without any major issues so far (*crosses fingers and hopes for no unforeseen limitations*). So what that means is I wanted to dust off this old Sig Shop thread and return to making these. Again, still not full force. At least not like I used to. I know based on my work and school schedule that I won’t be able to take dozens of requests like before.
TL;DR is that I am back and looking forward to making some signatures again! Going to start my grand re-opening of this thread by taking three requests. First come, first serve! …I mean, I hope people are still interested in having signatures made, cause this part of the forums doesn’t appear to be as active lately. But maybe I can change that?
Since I can't figure out how to make the spirit beasts look as good as I used to, I won't take requests for signatures that include any ghostly pets [Karoma, Gondria, Magria, Anhka, Ban'thalos, etc]. Also keep in mind most items with special effects are giving me some trouble. I apologize to those who would have loved to have a spirit beast included, but unfortunately this has been the biggest issue I have encountered since I have returned to sig making.
So on that note, hi everyone, and welcome to my shop!! I would like to say that I'm certainly not the best signature artist out there, I am afterall still learning new techniques with every creation! I also enjoy making these signatures in my spare time, so bare with me if requests aren’t done rapidly. I do my best to not forget requests though!! (If I happen to, since I'm human and not perfect, just slip me a reminder in a PM and I will be certain to make sure its done) ♥Note:
Just to keep in mind, while I do have artistic skills, I have very little skill when it comes to computer drawings. I've tried a little, but I'm too embarrassed to publicly post that kind of art! As far as what you can expect from me here... all I do is utilize WoW Model Viewer, and then edit/position/fancify World of Warcraft designs/images and backgrounds into a siggy/avatar style primarily using photoshop. Any artwork or designs used in my signatures are not my own unless otherwise specified
. When I do use other artists work, for example as a background, I will always give credit where credit is due, unless I can not find the name of the artist, but I will still make note of where I found it (I would NEVER ever EVER claim someone else’s artwork as my own!!! Cause that just ain’t right.)
So lets get on to the request taking!What I need:
-An Armory link or screenshot of your character. Armory links are preferred, as I am able to import your character exactly as they are in game! Screenshots still work, but they only work if I can see your character’s face, skin, and hair color to correctly represent them. If you wish to wear a helmet, I would still like to see the face anyways, so please just leave a note in the list of gear. (I want to make sure you like you!) Basically, if your image has your character in a pose or armor that obstructs the face, I kindly ask that you attach an up-close in game screenshot of their face so I can easily see it. Or just link your armory page, because that is of course the easiest method for me!
-A list of gear you would like your character to wear. Keep in mind that transmog gear generally shows up after importing a character from the armory, so if you wish to use your transmog set, that will of course be the easiest. But you are free to request a different outfit! And if you don’t want your transmog gear to show, but you also don’t have an idea of what to wear, that is also alright. I can always work something up (But I cannot guarantee we will have the same taste in fashion!). Generally by default I will more than likely use your transmog gear if not otherwise requested.
-Links to the pets/mounts/companions you would like in it. Keep in mind that the more companions you add, the more difficult it is to work with. While I have been able to fit 25 pets in a signature in the past, I would prefer not to deal with more than 10 creatures in a piece if it can be helped. Hope you can understand. Each character/creature is placed on their own layer in order for me to position them properly, so it becomes more and more time consuming to work with multiple layers. It may not sound so bad, but when you have to move that one pet and hadn’t been labeling each layer because you are a dingbat like myself, then you have to search like crazy to find it!
-What you'd like written on it. (Like your name, pets names, or titles. Or a witty saying.) Or if you prefer no text, that is also an option. Please know that by default, I will simply use your character name if you don’t make a note otherwise.
-If there is anything in particular that you would like that hasn’t been mentioned, please make a note of it in your request. Don’t be shy!
-And please, let me know if there is something you absolutely DON’T
want, so I can avoid disappointing you.Keep in mind...
-When you make a request, remember that I am not in your brain so it’s hard to create artwork exactly the way you imagine it. I’ll do my best to keep to your requests, but a little wiggle room always helps. Please, at least do me the favor of not becoming upset if it is not 100% like your request, as I put care and effort into these and don't intentionally want to make anyone upset! I'm more than happy to make alterations if the piece does not entirely live up to your expectations!
-Also, you don’t have to be a hunter to have a siggy made! I would be just as happy to make one for your priests, druids, shamans... you get the idea.
-I can’t do animations at this moment, since I have no clue how, so please don’t ask.
-I may or may not make a matching avatar unless one is requested. So if you want one, ask. Otherwise there is a 50% chance that I will make one to go with your signature.
-And lastly, don't forget to save the things I make you! Its always best to have your images on your own computer, just incase something happens! Imgur has been a real great place to store all my work so far (five years and counting!) but you never know if it will one day be gone and then there will be no more access to the image hardcopy.Current Requests:
This list reflects my most recently completed requests, as well as requests that are pending or in progress. Completed pieces can be found throughout the thread, or if you wish to browse all of my signatures at once, you can visit my imgur gallery: Signatures + Avatars
. While I would like nothing more than to complete these in this exact order, occasionally I may deviate from the numbered order. This is not to offend you in anyway, but sometimes for miscellaneous reasons I will create sigs out of order. Have no fear, I will still get to you!
