    What do you think?

    Hey guys, I'm trying to get back into Sig/banner making, and I'm getting a lot of inspiration from the galleries and tutorials here at MPGH. What do you guys think of this sig? Keep in mind I haven't been doing a lot of work on PS lately, except for business-style websites.



    I was kind of out of ideas for the text. Also, I decided to keep the render exactly as is because the brown seems to look good with the green.

    The problem with the render on the green background is that they don't blend, they are just there.

    Either add some distracting photoshop effects, blur the edges together, or do some HD glow effect.

    At first it caught my eye as awesome, but a few seconds later I realized that they didn't really blend. :\ Great otherwise!

    I tried adding a layer mask to blend the two images together, but didn't really like the way it turned out =/

    I'm not too sure what to do here.



    EDIT:

    Here it is after I added an adjustement layer to try and blend the colours a bit better. Just makes the guys look sick... lol

    i think you still havent blossomed in photoshop, you havent realised your flow yet


    you still think green abstract brushes and slapping a brown render in is cool

    and renders like taht suck, not enough detail for a good sig

    but keep going, youll make your own style and then youll be right

    Thanks for that standoff. Like I said before, this definatly isn't my area. I mainly do Website Design, which is much different.

    I guess I'm going to have to keep reading tutorials, so I can find my own little style.

    Sorry for the double post, but here's another stab I took at a brush + render sig. You guys may not like it, but I'm learning, and I'm happy

    Any recommendations as to what I can "fill my sig up with?" Also, the site is pslover.com. I've always used good-tutorials.com, I actually have a couple tutorials I've made up there. Obviously they aren't for sig making though.

    Thanks again for the suggestions, I really appreciate it.
