All in one Sig.

Updated Rules Read Please
Changed the rules to keep it open ended and anyone and everyone can enter at any time. Thanks to Wii187 for the idea.

Thanks everyone contributed and commented so far
----------------------------------------------
Guidelines;
1. Anyone can take part at any time.
2. If you want to add to the sig download the above users version then add to it.
3. We will be saving the Image as a .PNG file so its the same for everyone.
4. We'll keep this sig to a one render focal.
5. When you think the sig is finished put a border on it and write x360a for the text.
6. Post it up and tell people what you done to it, even if it's just a little thing.
7. When the sig is done I will add in one post who contributed to the sig and the steps taken to get the end result
8. When a new one starts ONLY after the last one is finished who ever starts has to link a render that will be used for that sig.
9. This is for everyone to learn from because nobody no's everything.
10. Remember it's just for fun and respect other peoples efforts.

REMEMBER IT'S JUST FOR FUN.

I also think it will be learning exercise for everyone, learning what certain effects have on the overall sig.
----------------------------------------------
We are using the wraith render:
http://planetrenders.net/renders/dis...php?pos=-21364

..............................
Jagged 88

I started by opening a new working space of 400x200 pix.
Then added a blue grey colour (colour ID: 6c7883)
I then got a water stock and set it to overlay 15%
..............................
Alleyooped

Okay,
Added in the render.
Smudged it around
Set it to Grain Merge 100%
..............................
cheesyp00fs

Added in the render twice, one was larger than the other, set the more large one at the back and lowered the opacity.
..............................
HnC Cacky

Added in a few clipping masks and lowered the opacity.
Added a light black and white gradient map, set to screen and lowered the opacity.
..............................
RedstaR

I smudged and blurred the background and then sharpened to add depth added a high pass and then a white to transparent gradient on the sword/face down to his chest and then gaussian blurred it set it to overlay then blurred the sword because it looked really pixely.
..............................
Zippy

Added C4D at Overlay 100%, erased parts covering the focal and blurred the edges slightly.
..............................
iTz x AmPeD

First I added stars/orbs using the sparkle brush kit. After that I added a little bit of lighting to the top of the sword, & very lightly on wraiths eyes as well as the bottom of his sword (the two circle pieces). Then I erased parts of the sparkle kit around the renders face area and set the layer to grain merge at 100%. After that I added a dark blue and light purple gradient map which I set to color at around 35%
..............................
Skillet

Blurred around the edges a bit, sharpened the focal, and added a couple of color adjustment layers to take away some of the monotonous color... basically just added depth.
..............................
Wii187

Added some definition to the face and hair.
..............................
Jagged 88

I got rid of some of the purple and tried to add a bit more depth by sharpening his face and slightly blurring parts of the background and shoulders.
..............................
Rowey 94

Sharpened , Lighting And added border.
..............................
mmn91x

Did some color balance so it's not that purple anymore and added the text..

http://i452.photobucket.com/albums/q...EA88/x360a.png

Anyone on x360a can use this sig at anytime but try and use your own host if possible.

Thank Alleyooped.

Its going to look like a big tutorial but each person is going to bring something different to it because no to styles are exactly the same.


For example: We'll keep it one render/focal only.

Person 1

Started off with a dark grey background then added a crumpled paper
texture and set it to overlay 70%.

Person 2

Blurred some of the paper texture and added a c4d to dodge 100%.

Person3

I added a gradient map purple to orange set it to multiply 100% and also
added light in the top left corner and set that to 40% grain merge.


If everyone does something little like that I think it will turn out pretty good.


Come on people it'll be fun I promise lol.

That is one hell of an idea mate, maybe make it into some giant mural with the x360a logo in the middle?

Just a little note if this is going to happen.

What would happen with font issues. If some people have font's that others don't.

This sounds like an excellent idea man, i'm in

The text doesn't go on till last so it wont be a problem. We'll all decide if the sig suits any text or a border then act from their.

It doesn't matter what program you use because after the person above you has done their bit, you'll right click the image that they posted and save/download it. Open it in GIMP, Photoshop, Paint.net or any other program, then do what you want to it and save it as a .png and post it.

So we wont be using other peoples layered files.

I still don't know if we should choose the render before starting.

I think if we get about 20 people or something that would be pretty epic.

That's probably the best thing to do, so we have a sence of what to do for the background, you also need to choose one that everyone is comfortable with it's gunna be epic if we get 20+

I concur that this is a pretty good idea.

I'd like to join the list if you'll permit it.

I'll also go ahead and sticky this. Might as well make it "official" eh?

I just thought, will it be a problem that some of us are using GIMP and others are using Photoshop? If not I think it will be cool to see the blending of what each program has to offer (and at its best, in the case of some of our artists here)

The only way we would be able to work with layered files is to use a hosting site. But still you cant edit a Photoshop file with GIMP (or vise versa) as they use different file extensions.

Thanks to everyone so far for joining in . If anyone has any good ideas on a render post them up. We'll start it once we have about 20 people.
