Congrats... you've weaponized graphics... I'm pretty sure this would induce seizures.
Any known tutorials that would help me?
You can't learn design from tutorials. That causes design tunnel vision and all your pieces become random brushing and a CGI abstract image with a lens flare behind a cutout from a videogame wall paper.
Your signature is meant to represent you. Don't worry about filters, text effects, or image treatments. If you're not a designer, it's better to show you're not than fake it.
Find a cool photograph, crop it, and stick your screen name on it.
Coloring is WONDERFUL... I love the tone set here...
Great image treatment, very sharp. Layout is good.
Looks like the text was thrown in there, and is only partially legible.
I don't like the flare in the center. It's distracting and unneeded.
Great piece over all.
Made a new version, fancied changing the colours and carried out some of your tips.
VERY nice. Color is still great, no more blown out highlights.
There are some good ones in the prem tutorial section. What I will say about tuts are you should only use them to familiarise your self with photoshops features. The only way you will improve in designing is by going at it again and again.. Overtime you will develop your own style and routine.. Not one from a tutorial.
yeah but were are you going to learn new tricks and things like that?
Thank you all for your help, I will try again, and hopefully not give everyone seizures this time around!
You're fucking stupid. Every good sigmaker that ever walked through this place had to use tutorials at some point or another. It's okay to talk shit in Off-Topic, but if you've decided to masquerade as someone who knows what they're talking about, you're going to make it harder for the people posting in your thread to actually get anywhere with sigmaking.
I agree with Inverse :/
When and if you can:
But they can learn from you...?

Anyone that thinks they magically get design talent, or think they are superior because of a piece of paper, are just fucking stupid. Just because you learn a technique in a tutorial it doesn't mean all your works become a cliche of the same technique. Then again maybe thats what you do, so that's why you find it true..
Honestly grow up clash and get over yourself, you couldn't do any better then most of the tags in this thread.
