Image Umbrella: Signatures, Avatars, Logos & Text

Recommended Posts

Mexchelle, your signature is smaller when you used it..making it look really bad.

In general, the originally sized signature looks bad because of the blood splats and the zombie being cut off. Text isn't that desirable either. 3/10 - Sig, 5/10 - Avvy.

New Signature:

Lego, its good, but its a bitt to grungy and sharp. I wouldn't put any texture stuff on top of the render either, it sort of makes it a bit "wrong". Blur the edges, so it adds some depth, and work on the text. KIU man.

The effects around the player are wonderful! Really fantastic! (If PDN)

Good overall blending - colors are good too.

I agree with 007 Nab, but there's lots of empty space on the left. I would suggest cropping it a little or perhaps continue the effects a little more to the left. :) Great job, as always. :D

You might want to narrow the search results to the Tutorials section only. :wink:

That's weird, I'm pretty sure I did. :?

Oh well. :roll:

E: Now it shows my two tutorials and my gallery. :?

Here is one i made, its my very first. I made it for a friend who is obsessed with the rock band guys, she sent me the pictures so i'm not sure where she got them from. Please be kind. Constructive criticism is welcomed.

@dangever:

I like your style very much! It looks too wide for an avatar, and a bit small for a sig - did you make it specifically for that size or was the size an arbitrary choice?

Only part that doesn't "gel" for me is the light area immediately below the top left face. The brightness there obscures the small face and there is a hard line to the right of this bright area.

Here's something I've been working on, a stereogram sig!

My question is this: Is this just too obscure to use, or will people "get it"?

I have been a lurker here for quite a while. The talent here is unreal. I've been learning a lot, what better way to waste sleepless nights. Here is an animated sig I use for emails. PDN and Beneton animator. It doesn't look right without a white background, need to figure out how to fix that.

These are also used in my emails as backgrounds

frankencub- if you want it to have no white, than it would have to be .apng format or something else, other wise .gif doesnt allow transparency. i suggest making it a white rectangle instead of the weird shapes. cool idea though. looks like neon. other things look cool. pretty realistic.

nath- wayyy to much empty space on the right side. move yoshi a little more towards the center (not all the way, but say 20 pixels maybe?) and add something else. your current sig has the simplistic thing going pretty good, but you can't really do that with a render, unless you are t3h aW3S0M3. resize yoshi to make him a small enough for his head to fit in the sig at least. Oh and make your border stand out a little more. i can barely tell its there. make it either darker or lighter. keep practicing though. it doesn't take long to get better if you do stuff every other day.

Thanks guys. I did find a gif to apng converter but then it isn't compatible with Photobucket, I tried it on a couple other forums and I get a non compatible format error. I will slide on over to the Image Hospital area for further questions. That's the look I was trying for, neon light. Took me probably 8 tries before I was happy with it. I also added one of the first sigs I made. I stumbled upon PDN by accident looking for a replacement for MS Paint.....haven't looked back since.

you can host .apng here if you want to, but only a few browsers support it, Firefox 3.0 and higher for example. also, you have yo delete all the white in your frames (like the weird blocky stuff) and then save it as an .apng. i know Firefox has a .apng editor, try searching for it on mozillas website. if you have firefox that is. if not, it wouldn't really matter anyway.

Guess I should have checked back here before posting a Q in the image hospital, oops. Before I saved it I did make sure to remove any white blotches but it still shows up when run. I do have FF3 but I guess it's no use if so few are supporting it for now.

Distracting borders are a bad thing.

As for you sig, your effects are kind of messy, though you can get away with that. The colors are no good though. Try burning the outer parts of your tag a bit.

well yeah if you make it neon orange, it wiould e horrible lol, but i mean make it stand out a little more. it is like the same color as the rest of the green, an i can oly tell that it is dots on the upper left side of the sig.

Kemaru I like the fx and bg, but it's a little over contrasted and needs some more blending on the sprite.

Dents was used for most of the fx. Good effect when you get to know it.

I think that is an awesome tag. The smudging is awesome, and i agree, dents is awesome when used properly, and you haven't used it properly, but superbly! :)

The only downfall is that its monotone, so the b&w version looks better. Maybe add some subtle brightness/contrast on the b&w version?

Looks awesome though! KIU man. :)
