Those look great LFC- is the background in the second also 100% PDN? Looks like a stock (a possible compliment)

I'd like to know how you create those smudge effects.

I just downloaded some smudge brushes from dA, looked in my program files folder (exported all PS default brushes :twisted: ), and smudged. Quite a bit of Strength: 100% and Quality: 50% was used. Sorta like clipping masks.

Background looks like a stock? :shock: I just smudged a larger version of the same render, so i suppose it could be a stock.

Its not bad for a first. I'd say, lose the large white contrast in the top left, don't distort the sprite, and work on the text + depth. Text is too large, maybe remove it altogether. Not every tag needs text. :wink:

its crazy good jake, the background and text match well, I can say what i think could maybe enhance it, something like a golden frame bordering it i guess, but it looks great! :D

@Jake2k

Looks really awesome man,its going to be a great wallpaper but it makes a very solid sig aswell,i dont think you could have had a better font for this sig,its perfect!

@JJgunz

Out of the 2 i like the first one the best,to me the colors seem to work better and it just makes it more esthetically pleasing and more in depth

First of all,

Cola: That's amazing and beautiful >.< I love it!

JJ: Yours are pretty amazing too.... I'm playing around with PDN as I'd love to make sigs like that one day!

Now, to keep with eevvee's theme, here's another Zelda sig. I just dled PDN within the last week so I'm still trying to figure out what everything does in the hope I can make some pretty fantastic sigs and avies :D Anywho, don't be too hard on me! lol... I hope you all like and if you have any tips, please do share!

All i can say for the sig and avatar that I'm about to post is . . . I love Batman: The Dark Night, and I kind of idolize The Joker in my own little sick and twisted way :D

. . . enjoy!!!

(The reason this isn't set at the proper size is because you can't read what the torn Joker card says when its scaled down)

Both are simple, but I wanted them to show the Joker more than some complex effect or something.

Please criticize . . . nicely :)

maybe add a nice border to the first and some flow, more color contrast (like less white space), and is the second one really a logo or sig? :|

anyway, CC please. im not done. i was thinking of something along the lines of water maybe?

I was thinking about adding some 'Joker-ish' colours like purple or blue or green, but it didnt turn out good, but I'll have another crack at it :)

As for the second image, it's meant to be an avatar, but like I said, it's impossible to read the card when its scaled down to avatar size.

Anyway, cool sig, It looks like a slightly rippled water surface, did you use clouds for that?

Hyrule, it looks nice, but like you said, the left side looks empty. Also, the text is distracting.

I tried making bubble text. Went a little overboard on the curves though.

In the future, avoid posting 3 times in a row. On the right hand side of your post, there's a button that says "Edit"; use it! ;)

Sorry Blooper, I didn't notice it :( , I'll do that next time though :)

That's cool, but yeah, the left is a little lonely :wink:

That looks really good, you should try adding a soapish sorta effect to it, and like you said, ease up a little on the curves.

Looks great though! :D
