really laugh on the way you said it. Yup I like the way they're brighten up, though sometimes not all people agreeing on that part, it really depends on the person's taste (eyes) of course . BTW I'll just pm you if that request of yours is done ok? really messed up with the lined up requests at the moment

Btw I read some sig tutorials when I first started it at deviantart.com, though unfortunately I don't get what they said, so I experiment something


Will post some updates later on.
I will ask something simple. In most of your sigs, how do you get your certain areas and brushes to glow so much? Like in your signature Mio5, the area above her head is glowing and so are the music notes.
Thanks <3

The upper left part area was bright bec. of the lighting I put there. The notes are glowing bec. of the outer glow I put in them.


Here's a simple tutorial on how to make a glowing bg, + a glowing brush.


1st Step:

Open up a canvas, choose a gradient tool, and choose the option radial gradient, after that put up a combination of black, and a light color.




2nd Step:

Then put a shattered c4d in there. Adjust the color of the c4d by adjusting the slider of Hue/Saturation. Blend it in either linear dodge or screen.




3rd Step:

Put an outer glow in the c4d layer, make sure that the glow blending mode was in linear dodge. Since the color of the bg was blue I chose a blue color glow (be sure to choose a color that is not so bright and not that dark, sample was in the screenshot)





4th Step:

Blend it in several ways, First create a new layer, Apply Image (at the image pull down menu), then set it to overlay, adjust the opacity to 30% or whatever you think is right. Then repeat but this time set it to multiply 30% again or whatever. Repeat the step but put a gaussian blur in it with a radius of 3.0px, set it to lighten. Finally repeat the step (still 4th) but again without gaussian blur, set it to soft light with an opacity of 30%.






Done....



How to make a brush glow? same procedure as that one, you can already add some brushes when you add c4d. Be sure that the color used in brushes is almost alike from the color of the glow you'll be using. Purple = Darkish purple.




That's it, hope it helps.

Thank you so much for that tutorial!! Sorry I couldn't comment earlier. Your steps are so basic yet elegant. I never thought of using linear dodge option for glow option >.< I used to try glow effect by using a white brush on a new layer set to overlay/color (the layer underneath was black). Then I would change it's Hue/Saturation with the colorized option ticked. It had limitations, and I find your gives a better glow <3

Right now, I am busy trying to find a nice, slightly cursive font for my sigs.
Thx again~

Edit: Forgot to mention that I used the glow option on the brush after changing Hue/saturation.

Here's a signature I did using your small (yet so awesome) tutorial with a few of my steps. Doesn't it look 'lighted'! =P

oh I see!, try to lessen the brightness a bit specially on Yurippe's face, you can erase the blurred part on the focal one or sharpen it a bit.

Will try that but not for the meantime, there's a error in my PC right now and I can't blend a sig correctly, aside from that there are still other requests that are lined up, so if you can wait a while I think that's the best thing to do right now, sorry.

1 requests update: (yup it's only 1, since I really can't find the right blending since the Vcard messed up)

I didn't blur the render even a bit. The one I have is a bit blurred like that. And I will see what I can do with the brightness ^.^

Back to normal. I changed the border style a bit just like my friend advised to, since the lighting in the upper part kinda messed up bec. of the border. (will start to do some requests later)

Updates!

Thanks, yup it's kinda different, since I haven't used a brush even once, but I'll try to combined that to my style later (still experimenting)
