    After i got some, very good, cnc on my tags, i really wanted to respect all these things in my next tag
    so what i tried to prevent: floating head, focal not too much in the middle, effects not over the main focal of the render
    fail? i hope not :P

    So here we go

    Ok mate all your sigs are good bases but they are to bland. Try to add some spice to them more effects ec4ds the whole thing. It's looking good just try to lay off the displace layer it's a little to much. Your smudging is good just gotta work on it more

    Try to sent it to lumiousity the reg b&w takes away from your colors that you worked with. I would try to use some more griadent maps though. Just work with it mate. Don't feel bad i have been doing art since i was 3 :D i just started on a computer is all nothing to speaical.

    It seems like you kinda know what you're doin , but the smudge - grunge style that you use don't fit your sigs. Also try addin C4Ds to spice up your sig like how Chris said. I suggest you look at blending and smudging tutorials.

    grunge is like spicy chalks usw ye?
    and why avoid, and does "now try to avoid" mean, that it's good, but to enhance it i should work with other brushes?

    now 3 more versions .. some changes

    Don't try to avoid it. You also have to remeber it is your work and you have to like it. So you do as you please. Art is your own unique style so make sure you put that i your mind.

    You have a lot of potential here. One thing i think you struggle with is Render size. Your tag is very large in pixel size, yet your render only takes up a very small section.

    You need to consider how big your sig is in relation to your render your using.

    Also. when smuding use finger painting and use soem different colors to change up the effects and mixtures you get.

    All in all, you just need to work on composition and variety.

    Goodjob though.

    Thanks a lot man, i'll try my best!
    but i always get the problem, that my render doesn't take up enought space in my tag if i make the tag size too small

    like in that above sig, i wanted to make a 400*120
    but the rapper was too small so i made it bigger

    Try to find big renders it's easier to make things smaller then bigger.

    Love V8, render is to much sharpened though.
    Maybe ad an light spot at his mic.

    The BW's aren't adding something to me.
