I thought i may as well make one of these showcases. First off, i am not the best graphics artist, although i think i am getting very good at it.

This was one of my first signatures. It was made using two Star Trek ships rendered onto a picture of tower bridge in London, England.

This one was made back in 2006. It was my first attempt at animation, although the quality is rather poor.

This one was made when i was going through a phase of liking Shadow The Hedgehog. Some of you may remeber seeing this.

Now this was my attempt at making a userbar which i think turned out pretty ok.

Now this one i have only just made. I followed S3ph's lighting tutorial and i had some good results.

These last two were made by people that contacted me to make them a sig, so i did. Dr.Fritz's one took forever because i had to cut the picture of the plain out which took forever to get right.

So do tell me what you think, easy on the comments though. ;)

nice work. Definately improving. I would maybe try blending the render image with the baackground to soften the sig & make it look more complete.

I like how you did the headlights in the second one, and the lightning in your current sig...

Just keep playing around and they'll keep improving :)

A few crits, be careful how often you use the Bevel effect, it is limited in what it can do, bevelling an image that is already 3D doesn't always get a good effect(referring to Plane sig).

Feathering renders even slightly can help them look a little better blended. Ctrl + Click the layer. Select > Feather > 2px(size dependent) Select>Inverse, Delete.

Bad Gavin, Bad. :p

Still a very good wallpaper, I prefered it with Agent 47 on the right though. :)

Bad? Why?

Anyway, i created this for someone the other day to practice, but i still think my last one is better than this.
