Image Umbrella: Signatures, Avatars, Logos & Text


Recommended Posts

CSM:

Yes, the sig looks cool and simple. But like what you said about other's sig, your sig looks noobish. It's jsut too boring with just plain text and a few glossy add-ons. It's really the same to the outcomes of the 3-D text tuts. Anyone could do that. (No offense, of course)

If you wanna do some text sigs, do some cooler ones. Like add some c4d's lightning... i got an exmaple but I ca't find it now...damn.

@ Mayor McS, I really like the newest sigs, love the colors, the clouds and the comet, but there is something funny looking about the comet it looks like a double comet. Still very nice.

This is the example I made for the latest SOTW competition. I'm not entering it because I came up with the theme, but there is still time for you to enter. So sig artists get out there and enter something !!!! Here is the link of entries and the rules for the comp. It's "You are the magazine".

Thumb to a larger version in case you can't read the text....

Nice, text is a little pixelated. Your best sig yet IMO and I see you've improved in terms of colors. I'd like to see you try to make an abstract or realistic piece. And also, work at 2-4 times your final size, i.e. for 500x150, work at 2000x600 and resize. Also keep a full-sized version just incase. With my new laptop's Core 2 Duo, I can handle that. But my old Centrino had crashed countless times thanks to this habit.

@ M McM, I think it looks ok, I still like your green one better. Using Blackadder font is better at larger sizes. It gets really hard to read at such a small size.

This is another one for the SOTW comp, You are the Magazine. Better enter soon ! This is ........

@Chrisco97: The render doesn't really match the background and there aren't a whole lot of effects.

It looks like all you did was paste a render on a background and add a glow at the bottom.

Try some other techniques like C4Ds and brushing to make the sig a little more complex.

I do like the border you made. I think it fits the signature pretty well.

Made a vertical signature today.

Is it any good?

Hmm, it is true that the background seems odd, however if you think of other sigs I've made with the style it's almost normal. I've blended guys in armour to grassy fields and Altaïr into a desert :wink: Thank you for pointing this out, though.

@Kem

love it, especially the colours!! you've made it focus on the girl by blurring the background and i think

you did a pretty good job at that. oh and also, your border. i barely noticed it at first glance, but i

guess thats what you were going for? you can barely see it, but i dont really like it. dont know why,

maybe its too small, or even that there is a border in your sig. and finally, how the girl and her...stuff?..

is really sharp and has a nice clean flow to it. overall 9.11/10.

oh and people, rate my current sig. notice that it looks a lot like Helio's ignite sig...if you hung

around the forums when Helio was here.

Cool, Tom Clancy! I finished that exact book last week. I just don't like how tall it is. Or, how the lines are. They look like stripes, and they make the render look weird. But overall, nice, good job on it. 8/10

Skitzo, I like everythinig except for the lines you added in. See how the comet is going to the right, and the lines are going towards the left? It messes up the flow of the sig. But otherwise, great! 7/10

Just so everyone knows, I am making a signature in a few days. Just as soon as I find a good place for renders. Planet Renders seems to be messed up, and Game Renders will not let me get to the gallery. Does anybody know of another place?

thank you!

@pipp92

How don't you like it? The one with colour, is probably the best way to go. But the black & white one

makes the background colours seem to pop out, whilst the coloured one background seems to just

blend into the guy. Well I guess that's a good thing? Oh and also, the faded stripes, pretty cool.

Although I would've made the stripes overlay the text or something. overall 8.2/10 nice nice

@chrisco97

looking forward to that sig!

Kemaru -- your current sig is great man! You've totally developed a unique style for yourself -- I don't even have to look at the username to know it's yours :P

Very nice, excellent blending and the colors are fantastic :)

Thank you for the wonderful comment, Nab! :3 This was the one I that I added C4D's into. Your sig has become quite a classic, too. :)

@Skitzo - A great outcome, but I'm not sure the scanlines fit.

@Pipp - Yeah, I know you can do better sigs than that. That one's still good, though, again the lines are icky. :/
