Hi guys!

I've just been following a tutorial and ended up with two versions. Before posting the outcome in the tut's thread, i would like to decide which one is better. Could you be so gentle to help me decide? Thanks a lot!



I usually screw my sigs up with the text... i'm not very good at it. Any advices about that are welcome, too. Thanks for the comments!!!

Merged Post:

I've been tell to add a low opacity pattern, what do you think?

Would you add a border? Does the render need more blending?

Nice bike, nice colors :D

i like the effects and blending but it's missing something, maybe more effects. the text what u should do is this. Type your text and then hide that layer. create new layer>image>apply image. then right click that layer and create clipping mask. then unhide the text layer. Then move around the image applied layer, that should get u a nice effect. btw that font ain't working trying something else.

Look for a font that shares qualities with the bike, ie the Curve's on the bike.
Then place it using a decent size and mess around with the text color till you like it.

btw, v2 is better because the render isn't clipped at the bottom.

It's kinda simple, but it's still really cool. ^_^
Maybe aply more displaces?

Tight bike btw.

Ok, i just changed some settings:
- Removed the part in the bottom
- Added a simple 1px black border
- Played around with the text.

Unfortunately, the text is hardly readable. I've been moving the clipping mask but this won't make things better. Should i try with simple text effects? Or is it ok like this??

Thanks again for all the help you are giving me! =)

Ok, thanks for the idea, i will try that too =)

Anything about the text?

v2 for me. But personally, textless will do the job.

Textless makes it look a little bit empty... Thanks about the idea, anyway =)

I resized the sig a bit, although it is not posted here.
