    Couldn't figure out if I wanted black or white borders so I picked the base colors for the signatures and slapped it on.

    They're not "bad", just a little bit
    beginnerish. ;)

    I was at the exact same place a while
    back. Couldn't figure out what to do. I
    pretty much just brushed a BG and then
    slapped a render on top. :D

    When I made sigs that way, I missed out
    on the most fun parts of making tags. Stuff
    like, lighting, C4ds, Effects and depth. The cool
    thing is, these techniques can be learned quickly. :D
    Naturally though, they take a long time to master. ;)

    So, Here's what I did to learn to get better - I checked out
    a buttload of tuts. "Experianced" people's tuts. ;) The tutorials
    here at GR are awesome. ;) I highly recomend checking them out.

    Here's a link: http://www.gamerenders.com/forum/index.php?showforum=68
    Make sure you check more than just the first ones out. ^_^

    The second thing that will help you out immensly is getting CnC on your stuff.
    Let us be harsh. Don't take it personally, cause the people here at GR want to
    help you for the most part. Yeah, there's a few oddballs. But that everywhere. ;)
    CnC helped me so much. I hope we can help you too. ^_^

    *Comments and Criticism = CnC
    So,
    The things that I see in your work that makes me
    think you'll do good:

    Render placement: A lot of people screw this one up. :lol: You do good.
    You've got the general Idea of a "focul point". You only have 1 per sig. = Good. :D
    Text. It's not great, but I think if you check out some text tuts (especially Inverse's)
    you could be great. ;)

    Keep it up,
    And let's see some more after some tutage! :D

    Good luck

    thx for the C&C

    I usually do lens flares behind the render but I decided not to do it for these.
    C4D's arn't my thing.
    I keep forgetting to mess around with some effects.

    I mote blurred the render 3 times and filled the bg in with it.
    Then I placed brushes behind the blurred renders and above them.
    And once I finished with that I soft lighted the burshes and renders (could have done overlay but soft light did what I was looking for)

    I have an ass load of tutorials but I don't really use them.
    I mess around with the tutorials but end up with something that doesn't please me.

    text :( I've never been good at that.
    I'll find a tutorial for text that works for one sig then doesn't work for another.

    I've been off and on with photoshop for 3or so years (whenever WoW came out is when my photoshop started to dwindle)

    very begginner ish but you do have talent, they have no dpeth or anything, i suggest looking at tuts and stuff. there really good here. i can help to if u want. give u some pointers. anyways, just fix the test and use some depth, in fact, remove the text and the first is decent.
