You definitely should get back into it, would love to see more activity from the gfx community. I really like seeing other peoples work.
As for C4D's, I really like them...so many great effects can be created with them. Definitely a favorite I like to use.
Clipping masks can make some really neat effects to. I really need to start spending some time learning some more advanced stuff though. Would be awesome if more people around here started getting more involved with graphic stuff though, I like to learn from other people more than reading signature tutorials and such.
Heh I rarely use images that are not cut out, unless it's something I REALLY want to use. I absolutely hate rendering images myself lol and I am awful at it.
I really like your current signature, although if you don't mind the critiquing(no idea if I used the right word or not lol) the only thing I'd change is the font, or maybe it's just the font color. The black part.
But honestly, I'm terrible with fonts too...placing them, picking fitting ones for the image...lol.
Aside from that though I really like the sig, it looks pretty great.
Ehm overall i'd give it a 4/10 for all the achievements but a 7/10 for the Online FUT draft achievement. Well I get it every year without fail and I can say they're all the same...except this year. It feels much better and is much harder. If you can get it on sale pick it up otherwise getting it now will have to be your own decision.
