A phrase based in chaos theory that states that small variations in the initial condition of dynamical systems can have drastic overall effects on that system. It is a common subject in fiction when presenting scenarios involving time travel and with "what if" scenarios where one storyline diverges at the moment of a seemingly minor event resulting in two significantly different outcomes.

Ohoho, look who has a gallery now. It's Sigmund Hakken, yeah~ :D Alright, alright, so I should have some rules and whatnot. Here we go.

http://i38.tinypic.com/16izcjt.gif I accept all comments and critiques. So feel free to be harsh, just stay constructive; that's the only way I'll improve anyhow.
http://i38.tinypic.com/16izcjt.gif I do not accept requests on this thread. Not right now, anyway. Maybe if people seem interested in that kind of thing. If you really want me to do something for you, you can drop me a PM.
http://i38.tinypic.com/16izcjt.gif I don't mind chatting- I'm lonely- but be sure to follow all the Pe2K rules.
http://i38.tinypic.com/16izcjt.gif That means don't steal anything. Rip and R.I.P.

Assuming you can handle all those... here's the gallery part. :3 This will be mostly recent work, so there's not much yet.

AAAAAAAAAAAAAARGH I CAN'T REMEMBER WHAT CEG STANDS FOR BUT I REMEMBER YOU WERE CEG LIKE THE REST OF THEM

Anyway, I know you said not to criticize your old works, but the Azure banner is really nice. I see that you're working with more effects, but either all of your banners are just really good or you haven't improved much. Try varying your style; you seem to be following a certain method of making banners.

And I'm just encouraging others to be really creative nowadays so whatever you can disregard that if you like. :I

Bwahaha, I know what you mean.
Actually, both of the new banners were done 100 percent differently than the old ones... and yet they all look kinda the same. DDD:

Am I the only one that knows that it stands for Crystal_Eon_Guardian? XD

I like your graphics, Hakken. The colours are nice and flow is good. But it seems that sometimes, you tend to leave your render the way you pasted it. What I'm pointing out is on the most recent banner, how the girl stands out because she still looks kind of pixelly and .jpeg'd. And everything behind her is smooth and clean cut.

To help you with this, Gaussian Blur it by one-two pixels [1 Preferred] and then sharpen it and see how it turns out. It usually works for me. ;D

Ummm... I'd try it, but they ARE blurred and sharpened. D;
The girl was a PNG render, by the way. /on purpose sharpening

The red one is win. Red = win. =3

The only thing that bugs me is the white text. =o Stands out a lot, imo. It's good, but sometimes it distracts the viewer. =o Unless, that text was your focal point. I was guessing the render was your focal point, but I was a bit distracted by the white text. XD I still like it, just try to change that text color just a bit. =3

The dragon one is amazing, San. : D The only thing I'd suggest is maybe defining the highlights on the top half of the dragon to make it stand out a little further, and perhaps lower the opacity of the white text. :D

Lowered to 70% opacity. Maybe? I don't know.
Yeah, I know. I did a lot of color editing that just shouldn't have been done to this piece, so the focal isn't clear at all o_e Otherwise it might have been some of my best work. (Actually, it probably still is.)

The truth is, I made it for BOTW, and I was paranoid that it wasn't red enough. Because there was yellow in it. >______<; Oh well. I like dragons. And fire. Raaaawr! :D

Most other places are too, except for the RPG board ^^' I really like looking through the art boards, though, and I'm trying to overcome my shyness and comment in here more often, even if I might sound silly. Anywho, great work here, Hakken! The renders blend well with the backgrounds and such, and I like the tile effects in them (that have them).

Your tags look really nice, and the text is just fine. /hastroublewithtext

But the thing I really like about them are the colours. And how you made the photo and the colour of the first tag flow really well. :3
