Good luck, theres a lot of good sig makers here, although most of them are gone right now for some reason, I would have entered my new sig in it, but I made a post and read the SOTW rules right after. I was like..."FUCK".
dont white out the edge
use a 1 px black border
instead of using a stock with more than 1 character use a render or a stock with a single character
and for everything else like effects lighting colors w.e just use tuts and keep practicing
great! for first sig =/
ok to start you off brushes, use lots of brushes, it will pick your style, and just keep doing brushes and TuTs at the same time and you will find you style, even with improving with the new techniques by tuts, then you will be casual with C4D's Light effects fractals sharpen blur smudge...and all that, but 6/10 for first sig, if its a sig i just seen with no explanation i'd say 3/10...
