anyway agree with anyone, text placement is nice, and you improved on placing some c4d only need to practice the blending a bit more, and in no time you will feel comfy on making some c4d type sigs.

Speaking of smudge I think there was a great tutorial here on how to make a smudge sig.


Ah here it is

http://forums.animesuki.com/showpost.php?p=2936801

smudge brushes are also on the pic, there's a link there.


oh btw about what you asked,

Cilogie and visitor are the fonts that I'm using and can be found at dafont.com

There are several ways how to blend a text, but the most eye-catching one is the use of clipping tool.

Here is a sample http://blogs.sitepoint.com/2009/10/0...-in-photoshop/

O_O I didn't mean to include his eyes...must have been an accident ^^;
Ooh...smudge tut? Wish I could do it but no time for me ;_; I have only managed to do two of the tuts you sent me -_-

I use Ernest for pixel fonts (I mean instead of Visitor ). I will have to take a look at Cilogie, thanks for sharing the info <3
I did tell Sworn about the clipping masks; I don't think she managed to try it yet.

@Sworn You are becoming famous now Or at least your thread is ^.^

Thanks Patchy and Star!! Yay for a famous thread!

ooh star thank you so much I am going to steal that if you don't mind ^-^ and then try it out again later. As for the light source, any suggestions?


I will try out those fonts and get some new ones too ^-^ I love fonts.

The blue-ness was literally a fluke. I was trying to do something different actually and ended up doing a fill-type-but-not-really-thing...and with the diff blendings i already had I liked it. I can *try* to make it less blue but I don't know how I would do that/how it would turn out really...

I just googled "FMA renders" and found one I liked. and then looked for a bg I liked.

Would y'all believe me if i said there was NO C4D in this sig? ;D just an epic blue bg and black and white brushes.
and then diff blendings and a random fill-y thing.
Then I put the text on the hand and messed with the blending. ^-^

Quick reply: I added light source just above Ed's head towards the left...

EDIT:
You can't really steal after telling me Go ahead, do whatever you want with it. Again with the light source, you can either choose bottom left or top left; I put mine in the top left.
And I still love the blue....

Oh, I think the bg itself was done using C4Ds You need to share that bg I found some of the others tuts I used before,want those?


Btw, congrats on getting your second bar! I want chocolates!! But really, congrats <333333

Hey Sworn-san I'd love to show you how I got my most recent real-people sigs to look the way they do, it's just that I have a mandatory study period right now >.< So until I get back in a couple of hours, I recommend that you get ready by getting some smudge brushes

Did you update your first posts with your recent sigs? I think you should make a chronicle arrangement of sigs in your first post. At least for now...

Oh, about the sigs, it's ok I have so many brushes too, that I don't know where to use them ^^;
I will upload the tuts after I come home (Practical exams today ;_; Not really hard, but I am nervous)

Thanks!! ^-^ It was image+resize (easy)+lighting brushing onthe corner+gradient map +blured text+border.

Oh! so you've tried those tuts honestly I didn't tried them since I'm always fainting while reading them j/k

Oh the one with the black stroke on the outside (looks like glowed with a black color) version of visitor right? About the clipping masks, personally I haven't tried that either .

Yup yey for your famous thread, many people are nice to you so you're lucky on that (I'm the only one who isnt nice har har )

Yup fonts/texts are sometimes were the eye-catching part of the sig, so I think you should also try some different things on that part.

I really really thought that the bg you used was a manual c4d labor really a great find on that bg, and nope that was not fluke I think, it only portray that you are improving quite so much

Ok some BG links to help (this is the only things that I can help with, posting some helpful links )

http://wincustomize.com/explore/wallpapers

the wallpapers here are so many, the best one are the abstract ones I think, and some of them are c4d bg.

Thanks Patchy and actually you are very nice ^-^
I will experiment with fonts and bg's.
Yeah, I just did some search on bg's and found it...it's from a site called fotolia. And then I added brushes which are the black and white swirly thingies.
Thanks for the link will surely use it!!!

Hey, like Patchy says, don't water down your own talents ^-^ The sig turned out so good cuz you worked hard on it and you are getting better dad by day ^.^ I would totally give you cookies but…I need to be more active in giving out cookies -_- I will give you laterz (that is, if you don't end up making another great one )

Oh, I keep forgetting but what were you auditioning for? And how did it go ?
What is it you were going to tell me?! I am sorry, dad slept for only 2 hours, so I got the net only for 30-40 mins today -_-; (dad should try sleeping more, it's bad for his health But he has so much work -_-; ) Can we talk about it in pm then? I would love to hear it

And the tutorials, I am uploading it now (ouch @ my net speed >.<)

Spoiler for huge tut:

The first one, it's kinda complicated but a good one. I used it once before. Uses some nice techniques and quite helpful; I would suggest you to try this whenever you have time.

Spoiler for Tut 2:

Second one, basic but effective. You can make nice sigs really fast


Third one; has nice blending Nice style which I at times use to make bgs more effective.


Last one…never really used it but it seemed nice when I was rummaging through my collection (I should have had been studying but I am down right upset, so I was checking out old stuff on PC). Nice and new blending style.

I haven't used any of the tuts recently (other then the ones Patchy sent ) I hope those are ok with you and your PC

(I don't claim to own any tut so please don't sue me)

Didn't get to try them properly, just some rush works I might get free time after 30th though.
Um...no, Ernest font is different, I think. I love clipping masks, btw. Used it recently in a real-person sig I did in request thread
Btw, you are really nice and helpful, a lot more then a lot of people I know, so stop saying it the other way around

Sworn, I used the "Huge tut" Star just posted, and my result is in the "Signature Creation, Discussion and Improvement thread"
You should totally try it out!
