Hello, I'm just starting out with photoshop, but I have made a few signatures already. Don't be too harsh on me, but I would like some feedback, what's working, what isn't working, and any ways I could improve. So here they are, newest at the top

I wont be too harsh, but the first one imo is too busy in the background and I cant really read the writing,

the second one is ok, but the fable 3 writing is stretched and ruins it a bit

and the last one there are too many renders and they are all pretty badly set out, and theres no blending on them which makes it look like you just slapped them onto a background

Also, I dont know if its just me but a few of your renders seem a bit choppy =/

but nice first attempts, just read some tutorials and you'll be fine

@jtr1gg3r - thank you for your criticism ive fixed the logo on the fable one, and i think i fixed kingdom hearts abit, but personally for the bullet for my valentine one, i love it, and the crazy stuff going on is supposed to portray power or something i dunno, i like it

Pretty good first attempts. I'm no better than you are lol.
My advice would be don't clutter a background too much, make it simple, but delibirate.

nice updates, tho there still something about the 3rd one im not sure about =/

The fable one looks better, and whatever about the first one, as long as you like it, the only problem is the text is hard to read because of the busy background.

I think with the 3rd one tho the renders need to be bigger, you dont have to fit the whole render in! I think you should do a 2nd version of the 3rd one with renders taking up more space.

thanks, i did make changes to the third one, and i uploaded that to my photobucket and tried to put it in this thread, but for some reason it keeps reverting to this version, which is weird cos that first version isnt even on the net anymore, i deleted it from my photobucket o.O
ill fix them up a bit when i finish my exams, as well as do one or two more

They're far to blurry and like undefined, look at the signatures of the guys in this thread, they all have a single point and style and thats what makes a good signature, definition.

yeah photobucket does that, thats why you keep the old one and dont save over it, save it a s a v2

e.g. Kingdom Of Hearts Sig v2

and keep the old one, if you updated the sig and kept the filename the same PB will automatically think its the same image as it has the same name =P
