The theme this week is – Graffiti / Urban Art

which has been chosen by – SiBorg (SOTW#152 Winner)

This week you're challenged to design and create a signature based upon Graffiti / Urban Art,
any kind of Graffiti or Urban art will do, tags / gangsta style / Banksy / Wall Graffiti and so on
 The deadline for entries is 7:00pm (UK Time) on – Saturday 9th July.



To see how that equates to other countries, here is a link to the World Time


Competition Rules


1. Max sig dimensions 500 x 200. Please NOTE: The forum limits signatures to 500 x 150, if it is too large do not try to use it as your sig.

2. Please keep your signature family friendly.

3. Keep to the theme that has been set.

4. You may modify or replace your image until the deadline! 

5. Don’t violate copyright laws with found images; links to source images would be courteous.

6. Your entry must be made using Paint.net.  Please don't use an outside image editor and try passing it off as PDN work. 


7. There are multiple entries per entrant allowed.

8.  Don’t add links to larger versions of your signature, your entry should be voted on based on the size layed out in rule #1. Please keep larger versions of your work for your gallery.

Thanks to - Chrisco97, Sozo, TheHowler, Nitenurse79, Chimay and Pixey for keeping this competition going in the past.
Previous comps have included the following topics as listed
Here compiled by MJW. This list will, perhaps assist future winners with a theme.

This is made entirely in PDN without any plugins. I know the wall kinda sucks, but I was just sorta testing things out.

(Also this is my first post, so I'm not entirely sure if I got that small enough. If it's too big, just let me know or something. I'll fix it.)

All PDN (except the Chat Noir image from the poster). The sign font is Las Enter (personal use) by Måns Grebäck, downloaded from dafont.com. The brick wall is based on Welshblue's fabulous tutorial, with the Texture Shader used for some steps. The random variation of the brick colors was done with pyrochild's pixelate+, along with my Offset Alternating Stripes. (And I'm actually very fond of dogs, even though they do sometimes drool.)


EDIT: Applied Ed Harvey's Vibrance plugin, which improves the sign, and also seems to give the image a little more "nighttime" feeling.

This artwork is 100% PDN. Everything was drawn/rendered by me through PDN.


The original image was 3200x1280 in dimensions and consists of dozens of layers. It took a little less than 2 weeks to create bit by bit.


The third-party fonts used are Ruthless One, Degrassi, Peinture Fraiche and Bombing.


I will post the full-sized version of this on my gallery.
