    Can't believe i'm doing this... First tag



    Don't know what to do now, need some advice other than the thing I notice (but can't seem to figure out what to do)
    Lighting on Render
    Empty Space on right side
    Back left side of render doesn't click well with the C4D.
    Can't believe I actually took the time to read a tutorial. cheers

    Try to fill up the background as much as possible, and also clean up the tag since it seems messy and LQ. Looks like it also needs some finishing, just add a gradient layer and set it to lighten.

    Weren't you here in the GFX section before?

    I've shared some shitty non-tutorial work before, only like 1 or 2 tags, and joined about 2 SOTW's but those were crap work, only my abstract image was pretty good but Tinypic deleted it T_T.

    Filling up the background as much as possible? personally, i don't like things cluttered , not my style.
    already have a gradient layer, but i put it at like 18% opacity

    Oh no, I meant maybe change the background. And when adding the gradient layer, it should be like:

    this..


    into this..


    Makes the tag look better and somehoe fixes lighting.

    Well, then that is a really bad gradient map you got there. Set it to lighten, change opacity to 100%, fill to 35%

    It looks pretty sick man
    I'm not really ambitious about this stuff, so I like it.
    Just try to fill it up some more.
    @Jabuuty671
    Try adding a fractal or a sparkle/stars C4D on the right side, just make sure it goes with the flow. Just experiment and see what happens!
    Can I have your PSD? Just wanna check what you added to it.
    And are you sure this is your first sig?

    edit: I've been using Photoshop for like almost 3 years now on and off, but only made like less than 10 tags before, and those were horrible because they were always just 1 render and a downloaded font and I whored the Filters. I always shyed away from tags though because I do prefer commercial graphic design (logos, etc but i said... what the hell, this'll help me learn more parts of photoshop

    @Keroaplt
    What small changes would those be, like some effect layers, lighting tweaks, some small fractals / C4D's? Vector brushes ? what what =/

    Mostly just lighting adjusments and making it more vibrant because it looks a little dark and dull
