8 Tutorials

Here are some of my tutorials, they are rather old. One is nearly 4 years old. Starting with the most recent which is old about a year and half/2years.

Video Tutorial


Sig Techniques

Topics covered

- Smudging
- Displace Filter
- High Pass Filter
- Spatter Filter
- Glass Filter
- Curve Layers
- Clipping Masks
- Spatter Brushes
- Lens Flares

Tut is a little long (30mins) I also tried to get a slightly better quality at the end so it's a little bigger than my other vids.

There is no preview image because it is the techniques you are learning and how they work in sigs.

No problem, smudging is just about practice and being a little patient. Keep trying with different brushes and smudge strengths I'm sure you'll get the hang of it.

Glad you found it helpful

I was going to make a written tut on my current sig. I dunno tho, they take a while when you write them and I don't know weather or not it would be worth it.

It's incredible how you can make a generally good sig with only a couple of steps 0_o

Hmm... it's abundently clear to anyone who has seen my sigs, that smudging still isn't my friend! As such, I hope to take a lot from this. Thanks for the tuts

Nice tuts.

Could you give some good smudge brush settings please? Because on every smudge tutorial I find, they do some great smudging, but because they don't tell you how to get the brush they used, yours looks nowhere near as good.

Well when smudge sigs first came out many years ago (yes I was there lol) It was done using triangles and other basic shapes. So the Lenny tut of mine was based around that, I just used a cross shaped brush, you can make your own or use a shape then change it into a brush.

It all depends on the effect you're looking for, in that sig I was going for a hard sharp look so that's why I chose a straight edged brush. But most of the time I just use the default soft edged round brush and just alter the settings from time to time.

I've needed some inspiration lately, all of my designs feel too bland, I feel like they are too similar. I will try some of these tuts out later, and see if I can better my skills in the long run. Thanks Audacious

[Edit]
I admire a lot of your work. I felt like saying that?!

The vids back in the day brought in loads of members, it was a great way of advertising forums. I only did it because not many people where doing it back then and it was quicker than writing an in depth tut lol.

Hey Audacious, if you don't mind me asking...how do you do those comic book/cartoonish effect in your more recent sigs like the Killzone one?

Also, great tut you have up so far.

This is awesome, i'm going to look into this info pretty deeply. I'm an intermediate level photoshop user so I understand most of the basics but always welcome learning new techniques and trying to improve. Much appreciation for this information and sharing step by step how you create your masterpieces.
