Amateur Sigs :P. XBOX 360 Game.
not liking the gradient layer on these. Try adding a color layer to help blend. Your text should not be overlooked. Text placement, size, font, and color can make or break a sig. Try not to seperate your text so your eyes don't have to wonder & make your text large enough to read. Second, to keep your text from becoming your focal try using colors already found on sig like your background or from the focal. Work on your depth. You can create depth several ways but an easy way is when using screenshots and other stocks is to simply duplicate the layer 2-3 times and blurring/softening each layer then erasing unwanted parts so things in background are blury. Another way is to use softening tool, depending on program - I use PSP, and start blurring things in the background and use sharpening tool on things you want to appear more vivid but not to much with that tool. Good job on your sigs & keep them coming. I recommend trying to fill some request I think that is were you can get the best practice.;)
