Lol, no, I believe you guys misunderstood.
Yeah, it was my opinion, I didn't really need to post "IMO" because obviously, art is opinionated, just like comedy, that sort.
Secondly, this "However, most (if not all) anime renders cannot work this way, because if you were to take them outside the fixed aspect ratio of a 500x300 signature, then the render outside will look flat whereas the rest of the signature will have depth. It doesn't work."
I was basing my observations of what I've seen, like this:
Not entirely appealing, but OK nonetheless. We all have different standards.
HOWEVER, I've seen some impressive signatures that are non-traditional style, but let me reword that to "Not TAGS", such as Nyoko's signature. That is why I stated: "There are ways to work around these, of course, art is ever evolving."
The reason I say that the signature style that "pops out of the box" works well with 1st person shooters and that sort is this:
And Pigler, I don't even know you, but you let off a bad impression on me. I don't know what's up with you, if I offended you or something, but there's no need direct profanity at me. If that's your way of expressing something, then I understand lol. Sometimes, we all just need to drop the f bomb.
PNGs have bigger files than JPEGs because PNGs allow transparency, which takes up a huge amount of file size. In general, JPEGs are smaller than PNGs, so I don't know where you got that from. I don't know if PNGs allow more color or better quality than JPEGs, but from my experience, JPEGs have slightly higher quality.
Also, I never said this forums used traditional styles :c, stop assuming.
Edit: Also, I've yet to see C4D text here. I should go exploring.
