well nice attempts, and keep playing around with effects and stuff until you can work into a nice style of your own

may i ask what version of photoshop you use?

try reading a few tutorials to brush up your skills.

Yeah, good job dude for your first few attempts. They were much better than my first ones that's for sure!

Try mixing about with Text effects. Adding effects such as Drop Shadow, Bevel Emboss, Outer Glow, Stroke, etc. can really change the way the text blends with the rest of the graphic.

Like in your Sam Fisher one, the Red text clashes with the background, so perhaps a black stoke, outer glow or bevel emboss would help separate it and make it stand out better.

I'll definentally try that out. Thanks, everyone for the good comments & I should have another Sig done today.

I've been really busy so I haven't posted anything new in a while. I have plenty of Almost Finished Sigs so There'll be a lot of new stuff added. I just had a few mins so I made this:

http://i211.photobucket.com/albums/bb289/Brighton_X/UltimateVenomAvatar.jpg

I really liked my Venom Sig, but it was too big & didn't look good Sig-Sized. I also wanted a cool Avatar, so I put both of those ideas together & came up with this. Just made it small & added Brighton X to it. Hope everyone likes it.

http://i211.photobucket.com/albums/bb289/Brighton_X/blackvistaStrangleholdSig.png

This was my first request. I didn't really do much. I blurred it, added a few details, added the text, & made the background transparent. blackvista, I hope you like it!!!


yeah if your gonna make a sig with the background hidden i suggest you make the sig still not looking like its square .. with the top and right side cut off like that it still looks square even though the background is not there ..

Well, if people can't take construtive criticizm then thats up to them. But you can''t just expect everything to be perfect. Also If you re-read my post I said no offence, maybe if you say that and don't mean it then good for you, but I did mean it.
