Hi! I'm new in this place and honestly I been lurking around here for a while so I decided to create my gallery.

oh! tnx. yup I'm focusing at the same style at the moment, once I became used to it I'll change my style bit by bit.

Welcome to Fan Creation :D

love most of you work ..This my Favorite +Cookies ~

Welcome to the FC family, Patchy! :)

First of all, that is a really nice banner..., but it's way too huge in filesize. You could have just made it a JPG; the way it is now any potential visitor is already finished with looking at the sigs in the spoiler tag by the time that banner loads. :p

The sigs are really nice for such a short Photoshopping time, good job on that. Variety is lacking a little, though I can understand you're still getting used to PS yet. Well, good luck with any future projects and enjoy your stay in FC.

Welcome to AS! Glad to see another C4D'r around. There is definitely room for improvement on all our sigs but I can see you have a lot of potential. You need to improve on blending your render to the canvas. Most of your work shows the lack of blending but C4D is not a style that is easy. For choosing this as your first style within the two months of using PS, I say you're on your way to becoming a great sig maker. Another thing is since you're working with C4D's, make sure you don't over saturate your canvas with fractals. Keep it clean and simple with style. It's about presentation and not showing off that you can use it. Keep up the great work. I look forward to seeing more of it.

Welcome to to Fan Creation.
You got quite amazing Sigs, for so short time period. I love most of them.
Keep up good work ;)

BTW this one is my favorite:

tnx for the tip maybe after completing the K-on sigs I'll try to create another style. Oh! and the banner I'll fixed it soon :D

another veteran right? tnx for the tip and also glad to see a c4d'r also :D (are there any c4d groups here lol. yup I'll try to not over saturated it since it's kinda awkward, though sometimes accident occur when I adjusted the light by soft lighting and it'll became saturated a bit :heh: , again tnx for the tip big bro.

Little update

Nice color choice for the fore and background. Right side C4D is a bit strong since the left side doesn't have big chunks of purple. Lighting looks proportionate to the C4D usage which is key to a well balance C4D sig. I'm not familiar with the render, but does she actually have that light blue clover looking tattoo on her left cheek? If she does, it might have been clever of you to change the color of it and compliment the C4D color. Her guitar looks a bit lonely. You might want to consider wrapping some of the C4D lining around it. Give it that extra touch to rock on with the presentation of your sig. Blending is better on this one. Last thing is the border. It really throws off the sig. It's just a black (3px?) border which is very bland. Might want to try changing the settings on it like overlay or soft light. See if that will help.

This one seems to have a similar background in terms of the fractal pattern. I think a little too much C4D was used on the foreground and the purple right by her left hand is out of place compared to the rest of the colors. I do like the flower addition plus musical measures. Adds a bit of character to the presentation since the render is playing the keyboard. C4D around her stomach is a bit too flashy and kind of clashes with the musical measure. It would be nice to actually continue the musical measure to the right side of the canvas and replace the random C4D lines you have there. You can see it's not consistent with rest of your C4D work. Black border is killing it again lol. Try playing with the settings to see if you can get a nice final effect.

These are better than your past sigs. Keep up the great work.

lol yup ther guitar really looks lonely I want to add some swirls on the guitar/piano part a bit. Tnx for the tip for this one.... we had the same idea to what is to add...

I will try to lessen the c4d effects a bit, I found that sometimes not overkilling the sig by using more c4d will result to a much better results, I'll try to adjust and harmonized the brush + c4d to make a better result next time. again tnx for the tip big bro. :heh:

These are better than your past sigs. Keep up the great work.

Patchy 2010-05-05 01:44

Another Little update

I've try to test if I can survive without using the shattered render c4d that I'm using in my background of the previous K-on sig and these were the results

http://img69.imageshack.us/img69/5817/bern2.png

http://img25.imageshack.us/img25/295/bern.png

There are safe versions of these 2 at the Umineko sig req.thread

WINGZERO619 2010-05-05 09:54

Well you have to use more that one C4D fractal lol. There are far better ones out there to be used. Try not to stick to one or two.

http://img25.imageshack.us/img25/295/bern.png
Well lets start on this one shall we? Blue and black colors compliment your render very well. Looks like the C4D fractals are shooting up her dress +1 for that. Careful with the lighting since you have a high concentration of lighting coming from the bottom of the canvas, you don't want to have another light source that is strong at the opposite end. There is some room for the bg fractals and the ones floating around her to be a little bit more vibrant to breath some new life into your presentation. Keep working around this style and improve on it.

http://img69.imageshack.us/img69/5817/bern2.png
Well this one is a bit over saturated with the flower pack C4D fractals. I do like the splash of C4D below your render. That's a nice touch as well as the vibrant colors. Upper left hand corner of the canvas has a black hole lol. It's okay, it happens. Might want to revise this one a bit by reducing the saturation.

lol agree with sometimes it's boring to use only 1 c4d style.... I'm currently searching for those nice c4d/fractals that can be used as a nice background (c4d hunting ;) )

ok back with the topic, hmmm yup I didn't focus enough lighting on the upper part just like the previous sig since it will become tad too bright since of dual light source, I just bring out a bit light for glowing effects. Yup I tried to blend those small 2 bit effects in a lighten manner to add a glowing effect only adjust the contrast/brightness of them near the character to add a sparkling presentation.

hehe the bottom part was just a huge coincidence, I just drag out some c4d and blend it in a double option (one with linear dodge and the other to overlay to give it a dark/light manner. Now that I'm staring it after 10 secs. yup it's really satured too much maybe bec. of the violet/purple gradient layer that was blended in soft light.


again tnx for the tip big bro.. ;) will work and experiment some more
