Hi guys,

I'm a very beginner to paint.net and this is my first Sig i made.

I'd like to get some feedback an suggestions to make it more better, if you have any ideas.

Here it is:

@mas93----Very interesting theme, but the left side is a bit empty. Perhaps add a little something? You could also add in clouds plus blending modes over the brushed metal layer perhaps to give the background a little extra. Keep experimenting with different renders, distorts and blending mode layers and I'm sure you'll come up with plenty of ideas :wink:

@xEL1T3xH1TM4Nx---The first sig's stock image seems a bit stretched and the second sig has empty space of background to the left. Fix those up and you'll be in good shape :wink:

Third try at glass text:

Much better than the past two attempts, but I still don't think I've got the hang of it yet... :|

Hey, I really like it! :!:

3rd try? did I miss the 1st and 2nd?

Yay, my attempt at glass has been "Ash-Approved" :mrgreen:

As to former attempts, here's visual reference from earliest to present:

th_GlassText.pngth_3DGlassv1.pngth_Glasstext2.png

Originally I thought that this recent piece was a really feeble attempt at something perplexing. I tried reading the PSTut for doing glass text but ultimately I just threw it out the window and worked blind knowing only a few things from staring at some other glass lettering pieces (namely Ash's :wink: ): Fragment, Highlights, and Blending Modes/Transparency. Perhaps I've been staring at this piece for too long, trying to fix various nooks here and there.... But still, I don't think my method is a fullproof way to making glass text. I'm just going to have to experiment more.

Now that I look at the timeline, I see I've got "Hello World". Hmm. Wasn't expecting that :lol:

@Excelsior69--- Nice sig/av combo. Looks very vexel-like :wink:

@JF+Crimson---Thanks. I remember when I posted that letter piece, I was told it didn't look glassy because of lack of highlights. I stare at my pieces so much trying to fix stuff that I confuse myself on whether they're good or not :|

Torchwood Logo:

Not quite sure where I was going with this one. I just stopped here because it sorta looked like metallic links. Also, it's the first piece in which I use the smudge plugin/done on a new computer (my laptop, where I did most of my earlier work, lags when using smudge). Nothing special with the smudge work, just a bit of an post-touch up.

I really would like to get some feedback.

Looks very good! You got a very accurate result, which is surprising (not for you :P ) Because mostly I see users on PDn either divert, or finalize with lower quality.

Now I want to see a super high resolution version! 8) :P

I like them! :D

I like the one in your sig more, as the Messi one doesn't really follow a colour scheme, and the stock is distorted a bit too much. The one in your sig is excellently done. Now all thats left to do is some of those amazing photoshop lighting effects. Its difficult, but makes it looks so much better! I kind of managed to replicate the lighting in my sig by zoom blur, paint brush, gaussian blur, glow etc. Great job though!

@Nab & iKid: Thanks for the comments! :D Well, here's a high-res version. Clicky!

It seems that you've forgotten the blured shadows under the letters. In the large version it's easy to see that you used the magicwand and not the alphamask plugin^^ It's a bit edgy. But still a nice job.

Yeah, i decided to use the magic wand and not alpha mask as i would've had to make like 50 masks, which i'm too lazy to do. Basic Anti-alias did an ok job though. The shadows.. oops i forgot about them :oops:

I'll go do them now.. and edit :P

EDIT: realised i wouldn't need to make 50 masks :P Oh well, part of the reason i started as a large size was so that once its resized down, it would look very clean, which it does.

EDIT2: Text on dA has been updated. Shadows and edges have been anti-aliased. :D
