Of couse, I'll only post my best works =p After.. leaving... a site, I hadn't touched my photoshop. about 4 months now. After using the stripped down to basics version in an art class not too long ago, I still feel rusty. So here is my gallery of when I was on top of the world (Mine anyways =p=p=p) Requests: KiskeLD.jpglegendbanner.jpgSky.jpgItachi-22.jpg (I used Magic Wand as a test for the Chief =p)

After.. leaving... a site

. . . uh . . . huh . . .

Anyway, first off, I would like to give you super congratulations on character choice. Naruto and Bleach rock!

Secondly, I like these, they turned out quite well and definitely have good visual quality. Some things though, the text on some of them are a tad odd. For example, the red text on the last sig doesn't really coincide with the general color palette of the rest of it and doesn't seem like it fits. The black text on the Itachi and Legend one is a tad hard to read as well and again doesn't really fit. The Metroid sig is definitely starting to get the right idea as far as text. It definitely looks like it belongs there and blends nicely, however it's still a tad problematic in that it's hard to read with the black in the middle of it.

Thirdly, Some of the renders are a tad stand offish as well. For example, Master Chief could use some blending into the background. Itachi in the same sig looks really good actually, so just like that.

Other than that though, these are pretty spiffy signatures you've got here :) I dig the backgrounds, subject matter, and the composition on most of them ain't bad either. Good stuff!

I know :nodding:

Yeah, thats the only problem (Ps- You can see the outline of the S, And Its purple =p)

As I said, I wanted to test the Magic Wand tool. That, and then, I didn't have a planet render account, (Someone supplied the Itachi Render) and I don't have a steady hand =p

Anyways, thanks :D

Don't expect so much now. I can't use Imageshack anymore, so I lost my 1 and only tut that got me started, and I can't remember the steps, and, the last image I made didn't end up so good (Had to render a picture of a Swed King... As I said, I don't have a steady hand =p). So, enjoy these while they last, before they raid my photobucket account

Haha, I hear I ya! I have a nerve condition so my hand shakes all over the place! Definitely makes graphics difficult, so I totally understand ;)

Did they get you for violating the terms of use on Imageshack or something? Plus there's always other tutorials to be used.

I just plain don't have a steady hand, so the most I can do is draw a circle that resembles a rectangle :rofl: No, Interwebz blocker. Long story; DNS Server

Your sigs have a few general good ideas in them, but on other places have a number of problems as well.

The most blatant of which is the text. When using texts, there's a few good ideas to keep in mind. Try to never put text into a corner. On top of that if the text is as massive as the ones you use. It generally tends to fraction a sig and detracts.

Second - your blending. Most of the renders seem a well disconnected in the background both depth and color wise. That brings me to the next point, most of your sigs appear to be quite flat.

In a way, I think the best one of them is this one Itachi-22.jpg It would be great apart from two things. The masterchief that was just put in there for no reason at all (at least so it appears to me) And the big hunk of text on the bottom. Imagine you killed off the part with the MC, gave the black text a mask it would look to be on a whole different level. But right now, there's a well placed focal, light, actually a well used text (the one that begins with the A I believe) and blending.

Try to expand on that.

Just a quick question about that Itachi... Where did you get that Itachi, with the blue smudge effect? I mean, none of your works used so great smudging and it looks just... weird... You just have that pic and placed chief + text in it, right? Sorry if I misunderstood or something.

Yeah, it was kind of a fluke... I just played around with the tools and effects, and got that =p

Alright, for the first time since.. *looks at watch* FEB. I've created a sig. I used a tut for the background, and I accidentally closed out the tab before marking it, so I lose it. Using Samus's Ship from MP: 3, I've created this (I found the font in the corner of my avy! YAYZ! :stallard:) I made it pretty fast... so don't expect too much.

To be honest, there isn't really that much :~

I just can't connect the render to the BG. There's no blending at all. Also the brightness in the right tends to be a stronger focal than the ship :~

If I were you, I'd try working with simpler backgrounds at first, but learning how to blend with them.
