Kei's Avatar & Signature Gallery

Kei's Avatar & Signature Gallery

Hi everyone! Many years ago I posted threads here showcasing my avatars/signatures, but it's been a long time since then, and I've never showcased them all in one place. So, after creating a new set tonight, I figured why not do it now and see how I've progressed? I've been designing for over six years now, and have included pretty much every avatar/signature I've ever designed in this post; even those that I never ended up using.

Please let me know what you think! And if you have any questions, feel free to ask.

NOTE: None of the work you see here is available for personal use.

Thank you! And that "Beyblade" is actually a Battle Striker, haha. It's from one of the commercials.

I do still make them! The one I'm using right now was designed a few hours ago.

Ah, battle strikers.
It all makes sense.

I'm kidding.

Do you still take requests?

Unless the request/content is interesting to me for one reason or another, I do not. Sorry!

Ah, that's ok.
Though as I said before, the work is incredible!

Great work Kei! My favorite would have to be Tempestas punching Bey Brad. You have amazing work. I can't wait to see more.
Great collection of works, Kei. I really like your works. Your current avatar and sig are cool.
Your graphic designs are always amazing and mesmerizing ~★

I just realized, I forgot to add these in to 2011/2012!:



It's also worth mentioning that I designed the typeface seen in my current Ruki signature. It's called AlphaOmega. I'm hoping to release it sometime this summer on MyFonts and wherever else will accept it.

I do too. I feel like it was by 2011 that I had finally developed a style of my own. I didn't feel like I was doing something just because I had learned it in a tutorial anymore; I was doing it because it was what I felt best represented myself.

Nice! I love especially the HMS and Plastics Remembrance Day sigs and avis for the Committee. Really awesome.

After seeing your GazzettE tag, I knew I had to make one to steal your identity walk in the footsteps of someone awesome.

Some excellent progress and art in there Kei. Cool to see your style's evolution over the years.
I just saw the comittee set in the post; I remember that when I saw them as avatar and sign of the staff I liked it so much Smile Probably they are my favourites in your gallery; However no one used Draciel MS, right? nobody love it hah xD
Luck
They're awesome Grin
I can actually trace back to when I joined using your avatar/sig creation time periods XD

Thank you! It's hard to believe that it's been five years since that game came out; I remember being so excited for it prior to release. I made that in June 2008.

Haha, well it's not bad. The overall feeling is cohesive, which is good, but there is a few elements which could be improved:

1. The render of Ruki. It seems like he is fading into the background for no particular reason. Where are his arms?

2. The text. It doesn't seem to have any relationship to anything; it's just ... there. There's nothing wrong with text that bleeds off the edges of something, but it doesn't seem like it was done with any sort of purpose here.

I guess not! Haha.

Haha, it was a quick thing. I didn't really think of a concept, it just... Happened Tongue_out

I could say the same thing about mine. Tongue_out Just because something was intuitively designed and doesn't have a completely or clearly defined "concept" doesn't mean that it shouldn't be beautiful. No matter what, if not philosophically, you at least have to judge what you're creating aesthetically.
Your work is really awesome Kei. How do you make those designs?.
