Hello. Below are some of my more successful attempts at making forum sigs... possibly! lol. Some are complete, some were just done for learning purposes. As such, i'll be dropping back at some point to do some edits. I'll try to add a brief description with each tag.

FC2
one of my early attempts a smudging


Catwoman
I dunno why I like this one so much... I just do...


The next couple are two that I did from the same tutorial... that came out completely wrong! lol

Gears


Silver Surfer


A SOTF entry


RocknRolla sig
I think I went far too heavy with the gradient overlay on this one


AGU
I did this for my forums


The next couple are what I did while messing around with various tools/settings

dodge/sharpen


blending?


I also did this after watching Audacious's vid
For a laugh


Subject Zero started out as one I was doing as a learning curve experience, but I kinda like how it turned out. I still need to drop back & edit a couple of things on it though.
Subject Zero


I'd seen a few other members on x360a use this render, so I thought i'd ave a crack at it.
Dead Space


I did this one or a mate. It looks pretty simplistic, & tbf it is... but it's exactly what he wanted.
Waxy


Did this one for his sister
Tink


Did this one for my sister
Lump


I'd just got my Recon, so I had a play lol
Reconz


This next one started out as a banner for another site. I ended up just ripping it down to a sig though... I still need to drop back & finish it off propper I guess...
Inferno


Did this one for a mate from another site... though I hate the font & effects on it.
DOOM


Did this one for another mate from yet another site lol though, I don't like it much tbh lol
Forza


DA:O (possibly)


These next two are the two most recent versions of a sig that Audacious is helping & advising me on/with. I won't post the version he sent me, because it's just for pointers
V1


V2


V3
I think i've done all I want to do to this one for now...


A SOTF entry


& one i'm still messing with...


Legion


I saw an image on the net, so I cut a render from it. Seems to look a bit lighter than what it do's in cs4 tho...
Reach


SJ


UKG Banner


Metro 2033


Haaz


Fallout 3
























I fecked this one right up lol




























































collab with Benet

































There's also this render I did last year, LINK.

Gallery continued on page 3 of this thread LINK

Thanks for looking

Biff

You can change x360a background to black and gold theme, just ask people to do that instead and then you can post them here .

If you scroll down to the very bottom of the page, i'll say --X360A click the down arrow and choose black and gold theme. You could ask people to do it that way, if you wanted.

Anyway, I kinda like the one you have at the moment but it looks more abstract than a robot thingy out of mass effect (I think thats what it is) but good job nonetheless.

The forza one looks simple but very cool imo.
I also like Version 2 of the Borderlands one the only thing I would have done differently is took the border off V1 and put it on V2 just to frame it a little more.

Yeah just keep at it, you can see a big improvement when looking at your older stuff.

*facepalm*

I was completely unaware of the skin change option lol. I'll get it sorted soon.

The thing with the Borderlands sig... My very 1st edit of it was utter toffee. Audacious was kind enough to offer up some advice, & even sent me a psd of exactly what he meant. I want to add is suggestions to the sig, because they do make it look better. Especially the yellow type colour. I just have to be very careful when I do it though, because the last thing I want to do, is over do it lol

Thanks for your observations & advice though. Everything in my gallery can be dropped back to & worked on.

Yeah, i'll deffo be using the black/gold forum skin more often from now on. I don't think i'd ever been to the bottom of an x360a page until Jagged had said that! lol

& tbf Remob, I probably wouldn't have made another gallery if you hadn't of asked to see some of my efforts... so it's your fault! lol

But thanks for the comments anyway guys

Hah.. I enjoyed checking your stuff out, the only thing I didn't like was having to go off site to see all of your work. Most people won't bother going off site, so you will probably get less constructive concriticism. You should take the time and post all of you work on your in OP right here.

I'm liking the softness of the halo sig, it's slightly plain looking tho. Maybe think about trying some clipping masks to help give it a little more detail, that or add in a displace filter.

Try to work a little more on your text, try out some other fonts and you could even start putting the name of the game into the sig as well. I just started messing around with some different fonts and arrangements just to give you some ideas

Yeah... I know what you mean about the Halo sig... It was a sort of a spur of the moment thing when I saw the stock. So I never really took the time to think it through, & I just smudged away at it lol
As far as my fonts & tags go... They're usually the very last thing I do to the sig, just before the border. So I guess I do tend to neglect them more than I should. I'll take onboard the options & examples you've posted above though, & try to pay more attention to what i'm doing in future
Anyway... While I was breaking the last two sigs I posted above, I was working on a third for a friend. I actually really liked it, but never posted it, because it was technically all wrong. The lighting, the depth, the flow... everything. After having another brief conversation with Audacious, & hopefully implementing what he advised, properly, I now feel happy enough to post it for scrutiny lol.

Your name looks 3-D on that one, like it's written on the side of his helmet. Cool effect
