If you'd like a signature/avatar made than feel free to request one in a PM/VM or in the request thread found here.

Also, any critique is appreciated but please don't insult me.

Nice transparent sig! ^.^

My only critique would be that you can see where it cuts off on the right and left side, but it's not that big of a deal :) i've always struggled with transparent sigs

I'm adding avatars in so it's more organized.

This one looks good but it looks very over sharpened. Keep up the good work though, nice to see a new artist around and look fwd to seeing your work improve :)

A lot of these are pretty decent. I notice that with some of the characters, it seems like the edges are too sharp/clunky, like it was magnified in Paint or something. (Dunno if that's what Gackt was mentioning, or not?)

My favorites are the Fallout ones, and the Dark souls one directly under the Lou Lou Bug picture. Keep up the good work, my man :)

i like hwat youve done, but to me it doesnt seem like theres really much, i dont know the word, ill say flow. they sorta look like the renders have been poorly cut and theres no synergy between them, the back ground and foreground.

try going on sig-labs.com theres some mad good artists on there, u think gackt is good, complete noob compared to some on there. try it, awesome tutorials, its the sight thats helped me get as far as i have and still helping me progress

nice job man,my only criticisms would be the text and that blue back ground stuff, you can see the straight lines, i know raj likes the pop out stuff, me personally, i do it all in box caus i dont like pop out but i cant figure out your style cause u do both, my only real advice that i could give is maybe master 1 type then do another

My only complaint is you can see the blue background cut-off up top. The bottom isn't an issue imo

I noticed that too. It bothered me so much I just changed it back to the other one. I'll fix the other one tomorrow, since I like the look of it. Hows my signature now?

I like this for the most part, the white outline around Marston detracts from it though.

Matt x360a 10-04-2013 12:28 AM

i dunno, im just not really a fan of ur read dead, sig, i feel like throught out ur sigs theres not really any synergy between the render and background, to me it looks like u have blurred the background and just pasted that read dead sig on top with a white stroke. i really think u need to learn how to make a singular piece

May I ask what you mean by "synergy"?

Matt x360a 10-04-2013 04:24 AM

what i mean by synergy is making so the background and the render match and compliment eachother, not look like 2 seperate elements

Slaughter. 10-04-2013 05:45 AM

Oh I understand now. I just watched a bunch of tuts so I'll try to incorporate them into future sigs. I'm gonna move on from transparent sigs... I just suck at them.

You don't suck at them, you just need to keep at it to improve :)

Slaughter. 10-04-2013 06:10 AM

Thanks, Gackt :)

Rajeanero 10-04-2013 09:45 AM

You have really improved your skills in the last couple of weeks/months. Keep going ;)

Tough critic lol. What do you think of the avatar?

WalterWhite 10-05-2013 01:12 AM

Looking good sir, you're definitely coming along nicely! How long have you been using Photoshop?

I would take some of the criticisms lightly, eventually you'll find your own style and you'll only get better with practice. I got started when I was in high school. Find a couple of signatures or images that you really like and try to replicate them as best you can. You'll learn some new techniques that way and then apply that to your own work. Most people who make signatures on the two sites have their own look, they're pretty easy to spot. I say try and mix up the look of your signatures so you don't fall into that and they all end up looking the same. Almost every signature on the sister site that I see looks exactly the same, they're a lot more varied over here.

I've been using a program called "GIMP" (GNU Image Manipulation Program). I'm in high school (freshman currently) and i've decided i'd like a career in art (music/graphical design specifically) so i figured now would be a good time to start.
