When you do use GIMP start off by following tutorials and you'll get the hang of it soon ;)

Just a little something I thought I'd try out, inspired from Seedy's subzero sig. Probably could/should have added more color and such but this was pretty much just a test run. May edit or make another later.

EDIT: When I put it on here I noticed the terrible edges towards the top, so I am aware of that. Trying to fix it now but having trouble. If anyone could help, itd be greatly appreciated ;)


EDIT2: Kinda fixed the previous sig a bit. Still not completely done but I think its good enough to add to the gallery.

Haha yeah, you guessed it. I kinda feel like its too "busy" but I dont have much time to really sit down and put a great deal of work into it.
And I like yours. Simplicity always sticks out to me. And Im terrible at smudging, still learning that one :p

Yeah i really like your SOTF entry, one problem though, you don't seem to have done much to the actuall picture. Im sure i've seen that picture on google.

I see you've done some work on the right side, and added a c4d on the left side tough.
But still, it looks good ;) GL

Thanks guys ;) its always nice to come in here and see positive comments.
Im still learning a few techniques in pain.NET (haha yes Im still using it). Hoping to break the tie and move on to GIMP sooner or later.

aww man, you got me :eek: lol
Yeahh...I did sorta "cheat" in using that render. I couldnt do much with the left side without it looking too messy/busy. Well theres two more days left, so I might get a little editing in for it.

03-22-2009, 04:56 PM
No, keep it as it is, it looks pretty awesome. As long as you've done some editing to it it's not really the same picture so it should be fine (Y)

That looks amazing Boots. The lighting effects fit the picture great. Colors are very nice too. You will definitly be better off with GIMP though, has so many more features at a more easier setup in my opinion. I've only used it once but it was cool lol.

Thanks mate :D
But I agree, there are ALOT more effects than I thought. Its easier adding depth but blending and things like that are a little tougher to me. Hopefully Ill get some time from everything and really sit down and experiment.

p.s.
Your latest is quite great. Colors are so vibrant and out there. Like the overlays and the light source is really good too.

Thnx man :D. Took me about 45 min to do and I had been wanting to do a render of my favorite Pokemon for a long time. Only reason I did'nt cuz I could'nt find a large, decent render.

But anyway, a tip for the blending if you don't know it ; copy your main render around 3-4 times and smudge each layer, gradually decreasing the strength to blend them nicely. Also, the first way and probably the most simplest way I learned how to blend is just take a soft point eraser at around 85% opac and then just brush the sides. Hope it helps a little lol :D

xBootstrapp
04-01-2009, 12:15 AM
Ahh okay, thank you.
I usually use C4Ds and fractals with different kinds of overlay properties but it gets a little more complicated in GIMP. Not to mention Im not that great at smudging lol still need alot of practice with that tool.

What do you guys think?

Haha yeahh, I didnt realize how bad it looked until I posted it. That section was supposed to be used for a little blending but it was just too bold and it took away from the focal so I just set it to screen and left it there lol. Gonna do some post editing sometime today hopefully.
But thank youu ;) Im kinda liking this GIMP stuff hah

You've made a huge jump forward in the way you're making sigs. You're latest one looks pretty awesome good job on that hope to see more soon.

And don't worry about messing up on the C4D behind the knee It wont be to hard to edit. Practice makes perfect.:)

Thanks :D
And Im on spring for the next week so hopefully I can get a little time to sit down and come up with something.
Yeahh Im working on it right now. All I have to do is erase that part, replace it and do some more erasing cause adding too much c4d to it messes up the lighting I have now.


EDIT;
Kinda fixed it, was really pissing me off cause I couldnt get the text how I had it originally. (I saved the layered version before I added the text and border) Gonna come back for the text later.

Another little update, been busy trying to come up with a SOTF entry but sadly no luck =/ I think I'm kinda losing the feel for things after being like two weeks out.
But heres another from GIMP; C&C?

http://i124.photobucket.com/albums/p10/MikeMc09/residentevil.png

Kinda disappointed cause the outcome doesnt look like I put too much work into it. I think Ill steer away from texture sigs.

Jagged 88
04-14-2009, 04:01 AM
It doesn't look bad but I think the textured layers work better if you set them to overlay.
So just use textures like C4d's rub bits out, smudge and distort them. I think its a really good way to add more to a sig or anything else for that matter.

It's good to see you trying more new things, Keep it up mate.:)

Ahh thanks guys :D glad to see people are digging the requested one.

@Jagged; Thanks, its basically made up a bunch of C4Ds. I think I added a few brushes here and there but thats about it. And about to head over your gallery, really likeing your newest one.

@Cheesy; Yeah its a clipping mask. I think I used the smudging under the front bumper and just toned it down a bit. Thats actually why I sent you that message lol.
Im getting more comfortable with using clipping masks ;) The lights and such in the background are actually clipping masks in some splatter brushes. Didnt quite work out how I wanted but itll do.

First of all your signatures have been very good and keep getting better every time I stop in, keep it up! Secondly, I was wondering if I could make a sig request? It seems all the other sig makers are taking some time off. I'm looking for a Sam Fisher sig to use on the Ubi forums. If you can, here are the details:

Work: sig
Concept image from joystiq, I'll link the image: Sam Fisher (http://www.joystiq.com/photos/splinter-cell-conviction/2071553)
Size: Ubi requires 500 in width by 150 in height and file size 60kb
Text, my GT: Biomedical Fire

There are other pics of Sam there, other than the one I linked, if you want to use any of the others feel free! :)

Thanks,
~Pearson

Nice! My favorite is the Metroid Prime one.
