Avantoes Grapics quarters

Well, I've been lurking around the Fan Creations section for quite some time now, and during the SOTM I decided to give it a try myself and make a signature. Truth is i found it quite fun to do this and i decided to continue and see if i got better

This is the first signature i made, with some changes.



Avatars:


Spoiler for signatures:


New work






This is what ive done during the first 2 weeks Anything that would help me improve is gladly welcome!

More fresh meat ^.^

As for the sig. I think you should work a bit on blending the render. And imo real picture backgrounds together with a anime render isn't a very good mix, unless your very advanced at photoshop and can make it blend well with each other.

wee, finally you made a thread here

Agree with Sephi, blending needs a bit of work, and you should put a focal point in the sigs (I see you got it on some of the sigs) so that the viewers will be attracted to some point on the sig

oh wells, cookies, cookies!

Yayy Avantoes you made your own thread!! (: I think you're off to a great start! the only thing I'd say is the balance between certain things in your signatures and colour blending. But other than that, I'm a noob in graphic designing so I don't have much good advice to give XD

KEEP PRACTICING!! (: I'm sure you'll become awesomeeeeeee!!

Personally I think your title is great, but it's more like a introduction ^^.

I can't really tell if they are either crop or extractions pasted on a premade or selfmade background, but I think you should on off on the blurring a bit.

NnnDAA!!
I haven't visited this thread yet. ^^
Hmm, you could lower the opacity of the Gaussian blur + lighten layer. The render is too shiny compared to the bg.

Anyways, your off to a good start, keep it up and I hope to see more works from you in the future.
Have some cookies, ne?

I like it
The only things I would have to say about it is that the background feels empty. Some added texture would be welcome!

I like it, but the text is unreadable. I can't tell what it says at all. You might as well remove it if you can't read it.
