Not bad for your 1st few... Your red Gears logo one is your best.

You need to work on blending the main image/render with the background
And the frames/borders are a bit overpowering(pulling focus away from the main focal points) IMO

It took me a long time to improve but if you take peoples advice it helps a great deal or if you like how someone else done something in one of their sigs just ask how. (I like your Optimus Prime sig).

Thanks for the advice Deadly, I know I cant go wrong when I'm taking tips from one of the best :D. I'm gonna find a tutorial on blending techniques and work on that, and try to tone down my borders (I see what you mean now).

Hey man. I see the sig I made you didn't last long :( (LOL only joking). Some good first works. Like Deadly said, work on you blending and borders (try out some tuts). I personally find that a 1px white border and then a 1px black border works (check out some of my sigs if you don't understand). Also I would consider toning down the text a bit as it's a bit 'In your face' in a couple of the sigs. Try a smaller font size and blend them in a bit. Other than that the best advice I can give you is to keep experimenting. Keep it up

I agree with all of the pros, they definitely arent bad for your firsts.
Like you, Im just starting outt but Im using paint.NET haha

As for your work;
I like the master chief one the best.
But like everyone else mentioned, blending gives a great deal of quality to a sig. Try bringing in even more layers and messing with the transparency a little. Expand your fonts quite a bit so you have an extensive variety to choose from too. And it never hurts to have some extra brushes lying around eitherr. Im no pro at this but I see you have some potential ;) Just mess around with different things and explore a little. Keep up the workk

Thanks for the tips mate :D

Sorry about your sig, but what can I say, you inspired me to get started on my own, which I think is even better :D. Plus I'll put a link to yours up soon anyway so everyone can still see it. :)

Now people have mentioned it I can see the problems with the text/borders so I'll focus on improving that and keep experimenting.

I personally really like my borders, but I'll try some different ones in my next sigs.

I use GIMP

02-27-2009, 07:02 PM
Hey it might just be me that doesnt like those kind of borders ;)
Oh right i thought so, it just said at the top that you where "new to photoshop" might of been a mistake?
Yeah i use GIMP aswell, i really need to get Photoshop cs2/cs4 but i havn' got the money to spend haha.

Real nice sigs man, I especially like your newest one. I use GIMP but I'm clearly not as good with it as you have become. :o

Maybe you could try your hand at some NXE wallpapers for my site!! :D

Dawn of war sig is Defiantly your best sig. Great blending and the background goes well with the render, good job.

Skepsis93

Thanks Jagged :D

Yeah I am pretty proud of that one, I just think the render is a little too small :( I can work on that though

03-12-2009, 08:47 PM
a lot of your sigs are quite big in height, i think you could do with making them thinner ;)
You are deffo improving though ;) keep it up.

Zippy,
can i first say i have looked through alot of the gallerys of the designers and i just kept coming back to yours, there is just something about them i love :)

I have a request for a sig if you could possibly accomodate me

I would like a sig based on The Todd from Scrubs the guy is just a legend possibly something with him doing one of his trademark Hi-5's, If it could include my Gamertag Name - Mace1982 that would be amazing but the rest is up to you and from what i've seen if you can accomodate me then i am going to be so stoked :)

Thanks

The Mace

Hey man, I keep checking in on your work every now and then, I like your latest, but the blending looks a bit weird on his claws/blades/whatever you want to call them.

If you have the blades completely sharp and his shoulders sort of blended like you've got, that would look best IMO.

Just some thoughts anyway, you don't have to listen to me! :p

Skepsis93
