La Galleria de LFC - Wooden PDN Type - 28/05/09

Recommended Posts

Thanks Max, Overkill and Speed Demon! Your compliments are always appreciated :D

Well, recently i've noticed that a few people have been asking on how to make those photoshop style sigs. So, naturally i decided to give it a go myself. After an inspiring look at sigs by Robin-2k7 i have come up with this combo:

I'm quite pleased with it. :D

It was all done in PDN except for the stocks, which are:

Torres

Liverpool logo

Hah - the first time I looked at it I didn't even notice the logo or render - lol - now that I see them the sig and avvy look completely different. Very, very good job on the new combo! Excellent color scheme, and I like the random light/smoke and text effects.

Great job overall!

Thanks Nab! Much appreciated :D

What i've highlighted bold & italic, is not true :). The avatar is just a cut-out from the sig. :P

@Max: Well, in the stock i gave, Torres did have kinda long hair (took ages to cut-out, wish i had PS and Fluid Mask :( )

@Saabo: Thanks! The black hole/galaxy type thing started of as Clouds + Twist & Ctrl + Shift + Z, plus a transparency gradient to get it to fade out.

Well, after a few comments on the sig on TagFlow and a few opinions here, i decided to patch up the sig. I reduced the lighting on Torres, so he can be seen more clearly now. Also did a few colouring changes.

I think its better now, but you guys are the judges :P

I think Nab means that they look different from before when he couldn't make out the person and logo, not that the two look different from each other.

I really like it, except you covered up the person a way too much, imho.

Thanks expired, but this was my first attempt at this type of sig, so i suppose with practice i'll get better and better. I might do another one tomorrow, taking on board your advice and see how it turns out. Or, i may even redo this whole sig, focusing on making Torres stand out more. I'll go back to the .pdn and see what i can do tonight, and see how it turns out. Thanks again expired. :D

I swear he's in my head some times :shock: :P

That's exactly what I meant, and I agree with his comment as well.

Thanks for the feedback on the Torres sig guys! :D

Well, i made some leafy text now, i follwed a PS vector tut and did it in PDN. The .pdn is 3000x1000 in size, but i resized it down for the .png.

Here's the tut: [link]

Hah, looks like my other comment on this was inaccurate, as you've made a "super high resolution" version already.

I think you need to upload it. Now.

Thanks man! :D Yeah, it is just Light Rays + Twist, but i made it look kind of glassy..

Well, this time i re-thought the whole concept of making a photoshop style sig. After viewing a few tuts on a site that pipp92 linked me to on TagFlow, i went back and re-did my nadal sig.

Stocks & Brushes:

Many thanks go to expired, as he gave me a tip on using the "Screen" blend mode. :wink:

Thanks! :D

People have said its too thin, which is quite true, but i suppose the style and layout is nice. I think Mike will win, even though he hasn't entered. Yet.

The topic title says most of it, and ESB stands for Empire state building. So far, only the base is almost completed. Watch this space, some of the tower will be coming up soon.

Well Skitzo, thanks for the comment on my Murray sig. Now for some tips on yours:


  • [*:1laaqyr5]You've added an interesting background which is good, but it kind of drags attention away from Murray. Try making those white rain-like things less visible.
    [*:1laaqyr5]You need to make the render more clear. Try not to use too many effects on top of the render.
    [*:1laaqyr5]Use some light textures on the sig to make it seem more "vibrant". Just search for light textures on dA and you'll find many.
    [*:1laaqyr5]Add some interesting text, and a more clear and "undeformed" light source is needed.
    [*:1laaqyr5]Visit
UniqueGfx or Player-art for tutorials on how to make these kind of sigs.

Hope i could help, and good luck! :)

Everything in this OS was done in PDN by me, except the folder icons (came without the stuff added on them - see stock link for clarification).

Well, this is it:

Folder's

The shown image is also a link to an approximate life-size image of the OS in a Sony Ericsson C902 (made in PDN by me).
