    New Sig

    Anyone like?

    I haven't used photoshop in so long, and even before I was never that good... But I actually think this one came out pretty nice.

    btw its the top one of my sig

    Also, I made the bottom one too but it was just a quickie :P

    The top one is good, all but the Text just fix the text and it'll be sexier.
    the bottom one doesn't really match each other, but the text is better than the top

    I say you continue with the Shooter Game sig, but fix up the text!

    Only use one render and go from there.

    Ryan, do you start with the render, I always add it last and can never seem to get it to blend properly with the BG, it looks really weird on all blending options...

    With a basic sig, you always want your render to be one of the first things you place in.
    It allows for the blending process to begin early and sort of "unfold" with the signature as it progresses, if you will.
    Also, don't use blending options to blend a render.
    Use parts of the bg, brushes, smudging, filters, etc.
    Anything to make it look like it's PART of the sig, not just slapped on there.
    In my current sig, not only did I have effects behind my render, but I had some in front of him as well.
    This made him blended into the image.

    Make sense?

    If not, go here: Peewee1002 Tutorials

    EnergyK showed me that site, and it helped me a ton.

    i believe what they are trying to say is blend the bg with the render instead of the render with the bg. I myself suck and am trying to improve but oh well. I think thats a great first attempt.
    the bottom one just doesnt relate so I don't exactly like that. Sry

    Too many renders. And the renders don't go together.
