Please keep it clean in here guys. This goes for all other threads as well. No need to "flame" someone for their work. I make crappy Sigs, but will you guys flame me for it?

If you guys have nothing good to say, then don't say anything at all. Simple as that. Continue on, Kiwi.:)

I like them both, but you will get a lot better as you start to make more. I am the first one (in this forum :p) but not the last to tell you that you will probably need to put borders on them because they just feel complete with them!
But overall better start than last time!

Oh and the text in the car sig is rather small. I know what it says but its so small. Idk it bugged me but maybe its just me :confused:

Ah and btw what do you use to make your sigs? That will help people give you better advice if they know what you use.
I use GIMP btw.

Correct me if I am wrong but I believe that is the new Porsche GT. Anyways, Kiwi, I really like the first one. Keep up the good work.

Edit: I just noticed some white areas around the porsche where the original background was. Try to use the eraser tool set to only a few pixels and get as close to the car as possible. The major areas are under the spoiler and on the left of windshield.

Agreed, you have some white background from the renders in both sigs (In the guys arm). Try using the extract tool to remove the white backgrounds instead of magic wand (atleast I think you used the wand). Also try making the renders flow more with the whole thing, instead of looking pasted onto a completely random background. I suggest a couple online tutorials to help grasp the use of all the tools since you're just starting out.

Thanks for the responses guys and yeah I did the car one at like 12am so that would explain the laziness. I will touch them up.

PS. I use Photoshop and Alpha it is the new Porsche Carrera GT. Nice as hell:)

Nice work Kiwi I like your signs and what font did you use for your name on your last one?

Here is the link to the site and the font. (http://www.dafont.com/theme.php?cat=114)

The counter strike one looks alot better than some of your older stuff. Looks like you are getting the hang of Photoshop now ^_^

I think you could use some borders, even a simple 2 pixel black/white border can make signatures look a whole lot better.

Other than that, just keep up the practice and try out some different tuts!

I really like your newest one. The background is awesome and I love clean simple sigs. Nothing overly done. Keep at it. Your getting better.

PS. Am I supposed to just edit my post? Or keep posting?

loren83
06-05-2008, 03:11 AM
I really like this one, especially the text. Try adding a border using the stroke function. You need to keep adding new posts for the new sigs and edit the original post to add them to the gallery so they are the first thing we see when we open the thread. Keep it up.

EDIT: There seems to be a random blue brush mark on his shoulder. See if you can remove it.

Kiwi, the new Counter Strike is the best yet. The bg colors match the soldiers perfectly. I personally like it without a border, but some of the others could use one.

But, where's my P90? Don't make me get the hose.;)

I like them, honestly i think you made some great improvements ;). Now, it's time to start making some COD4 and RSV2 sigs!

Get to work buddy, :P

P.S. Keep up the good work!

I think the RSV one needs work. I will be working on it over the next couple days as I have exams and get out early.

Kiwi they look great keep it up.

I agree that the R6V one needs some work. The background is no good as far as having at least some relation to the rest of the sig.

EDIT:@ ANTNIE, Saying that was not necessary. We don't have to flame him for making a bad sig. It's not terrible and he said himself that he was going to keep working on it. Just saying that is opening this thread up for people to flame. Positive constructive criticism is all he needs.

Oh you must have put that up right after i posted that, because it wasn't there when i posted. But yea, if you tweaked that RSV2 sig and i liked it, i might want JUST DO IT7 slapped on it ;).

Great work Kiwi! Maybe I'll request that you make me a Sig.;)

Sorry JDM. I thought I was being peaceful. Kiwi is doing an awesome job and I'm glad to see nobody is flaming.

What is wrong with it? What would you suggest?

Oh you must have put that up right after i posted that, because it wasn't there when i posted. But yea, if you tweaked that RSV2 sig and i liked it, i might want JUST DO IT7 slapped on it ;).

Pretty much I wanted to just start it and not work on it to much cause it was already 11.30 when I posted it and I was tired as hell. As far as background goes I am going to work on it a lot.

I would suggest something more readable and less subtle.

You were being peaceful, i think he just quoted you because you were referring to the flaming, if anything you did good! ;)

Do what you think looks best, why don't you keep that RSV2 sig up and put an editing one up, so you'll have two and give me more of a variety, just a thought!

Just played around with some pop out sigs...More to come.

loren83
06-09-2008, 01:00 AM
Kiwi, I can't really say that I am a fan of any of the pop outs. The Rainbow one needs so serious work. One of the characters heads is cut off and the other is hanging from a rappel that doesn't attach to anything. EDIT: Try moving the background and upper character down so that the top of the rope touches the top border of the sig. That should eliminate both issues. Also I would scale it down a bit since it is so huge. Just some thoughts.

kiwi18
06-09-2008, 01:22 AM
Yeah, I will work on it. I just wanted to start something before Exam week. Thanks for the tips. It came out to big and the guys weren't cut off in the photoshop picture. I don't know what happened but I have to fix it.

They look good Kiwi, but don't try to rush these before exams or anything else. Remember it's art, i'm not trying to get on your case because you obviously know more about this stuff then me but i'm just giving you my opinion and my 2 cents ;)

Like Loren said, the head is missing and i'm also not a huge fan of pop-outs. Some look good and some don't, you're in between. I feel that the vegas one is way too big and just doesn't flow.

I like the other 2 though.

Just remember it's art, and IMO it's not meant to be rushed.

Keep up the good work bud! :)

Yeah, like I said the RSV one was fine in photoshop and then something happened. I don't know what but I have to re-do it so for now it is trash.


Request for someone on a different forum. I like it but it is simple.

Yea, i'll have to agree 100%. I think all the text on all the pop-outs look great, some of the best yet.

Keep up the good work!

P.S. I wasn't trying to bash you at all in my last post, just some freindly constructive criticism.
