cc?

The render isn't the best, there're white parts around his hair and he's a bit pale (food poisoning, maybe?). I like the colors and the foggy, cloudy kind of theme. White glow gradient in front is slightly disturbing in my opinion.

I don't know if it's on purpose, but the black line (border?) on the bottom is larger than the the top one.

So, what do you think of my new signature? I didn't have the time to make an avatar to go with it yet. By the way, what does cc stand for? Comment and critisize or comment and compliment, or...

Krutch-it, your first one is my favourite. Simple but elegant and effective. The rest don't appeal to me a lot though, for the ones that have renders in them, you should use some effects to make them blend in the with sig, add lighting etc. The blending applies for Krutch-it, christiansteele and The great 1. Try smudging or looking at some sig tutorials on how to do so.

Text embossed into wood. All PDN, except for wood. It was quite simple actually.

It says water, because i was going to do liquid text on the wood, but i kinda phased it into this embossed version. :lol:

@LFC4EVER: looks good and if you would add a focalpoint and a highlight as described in erazer's waterdrop tutorial (I hope I got it right) it would look like water.

@Krutch-it: it's good, but I think you can do better, it can be me. I just don't like people using renders, because I think that if you really want an image that bad, you should have a try yourself.

anyway here's my new avatar, tired of feeling a noob, soon I'll make a sig (I think)

Thanks for the input, guys :)

@LFC4EVER: I did use one of the tutorials for most of those sigs. I tried the frost glass+glaussian blur at different levels on many different layers, but it never came out like it did in the tut. And. I hate smudging. It doesn't seem to do anything except make things darker. And I don't want darker, I want smudge. O.o

@Boude: But isn't me getting an image the same as a render? ISn't a render just a cut-out of an image? I don't think I understand what you mean by "have a try yourself" ...

@LFC4Ever ... the water wood text really does look like it's been carved from one piece of wood. I like that one a lot. Nice job.

Thanks, i messed a bit more with the method and used it on some diamond plate metal.

I don't think it turned out as well as the wood one, but it looks nice anyway.

I like the diamond plate one just as much. It looks like the diamond plate has been stamped from behind with a special pdn metal punch :wink:

Alright. due to the many comments saying that I could do better, I've attempted to do just that. Here's my next try. It has 27 layers (I read somewhere, the more layers the better lol). And I did any and everything I could think of, lol...tell me what you think...

Yeah, I always have real trouble with font placement and such, because I never know where to put it. Lol.

By focal point, what do you mean? I.E. where is the focal point on the sig i just made?

A focal point is the place your eyes go to first in a work. It's usually the most different part of the image. In the example, there really isn't one- it's all too similar. The skull on the right is trying to be, but it could use some more contrast.
