    this sig is awesome.

    the colors are nice and the text is better than your previous attempts.

    Good job =)

    Comparing to your first attempts, you've improved immensely and rather fast too.

    This one is actually a rather nice sig, especially considering the amount of time you've had to get to this level:
    [​IMG]

    From now on I'd say work on developing some more refined and solid effects rather than C4D's, and soft brushing dots everywhere. Also with doing this, you should look into creating attempts at lighting in your pieces, and explore with depth as well. Depth and lighting usually will come hand-in-hand, seeing as it is the shadows and highlights which will create depth in a piece. As somebody said before, your sense of text is one of your stronger points. I like the way you are experimenting with various texts, and the way you are going about them is great. Only suggestion would be is the placement of it on all of them, keep up the experimentation of it though, coming along nicely.

    As for colours the things you are doing mostly have a sense of monotone-ness to them (having one colour throughout, making it seem as too much of it), although it is not to an extreme, try and tweak around with this too. However in saying this, don't go throwing around 50 different colours to avoid making them monotone, just colours which will fit well in the signature. The most recent one is a nice example of this, however I'd say it is only a little monotone.

    Overall quite impressive how fast you have improved. Good work, keep it up.

    thanks a lot, i read through your posts more than once,
    I want to work at lighning and depth, but, as you said depth comes with contrast,
    i don't know where to put the lightning ..

    I'll go through the tut section, whether i find something about this

    i really like the way you comment and crriticise, becouse its very clear to me
    so of course it's part of the nice comments that i've improved

    Thanks to everyone answering in my thread, and to the people giving away tutorials for free

    i'll work on my colours

    well one more question, uhm i got a reputation, i know what it is, but how can someone give me such reputations and .. well why wpould they give one and what are they useful for?

    i can't even answer ..

    EDIT: how can i make a dragon blow fire? i tried with a c4d but it wouldn't work

    here is my next one, i wasn't sure whtere i like it or not ^^

    I quite like that i could make the movement visible but somehow i think its too much blur

    wow compared to some older ones that new one is great. i am not as good as sigs as some people who have posted here but,

    with sprites it seems to me to be harder to find lighting because they dont really have shading on them.. once you get up to using real renders and people you will notice faces with light on them and follow that lighting. very nice improvement though.
    like they said for you to be so new at this you have VERY nice text.

    thanks a lot

    maybe i'm gonna buy some tutorials on real rendering

    but i love sprites as they can show a nice movement which fits very nice ...

    i had it hard with my last sig, the potential for movement is given but it's hard to put that into practice

    maybe someone has got ideas how i can increase the fealing of movement in that sig?

    well i dont think tzhe text is so hard to do ..

    Just work on some of your blending, if you have any questions just ask ;) its been about a year since i've used photoshop, but I recently made a tag, (my current signature), if you like it I can give you some tips or what not :) but you'll do great :) just work on some blending effects!



    ------ EDIT -------

    I just saw some of your newer pixel signatures, the one at the top of this page.. MARVELOUS! Those are very very good actually.

    Thank you ;)

    well uhm, i got some problems with my renders, well

    in the first signatures i did i always used renders like this [​IMG]
    or this [​IMG]

    but somehow i think, what did i do there???

    how can i make those renders fit into my sig, i think there has to be some movement or so but i cant just let it like that .. can i?

    for example one of my recent dones [​IMG]
    i'm so happy with this one becouse it looks so ------ed-off, i mean the render is like just a kinda bummer ^^
    which fits quite good


    but this one : (which is not one of my favourite becouse of the colours)
    [​IMG]
    it is just booooooring, how can i make such a sig more attractive??

    I'm always tryng with filter and brush strokes there and strokes there and fit em together with a layermask and then waves .. blabla

    but it wont fit then becouse it looks empty ...

    like this one, i did thias for a friend (the text looks awful, but i didn't mind i had headache and just wrote it ^^)

    he wanted those 3 renders becouse of the good and the darkside ...

    [​IMG]

    sooo well, that was my first question

    now, well i'm trying to work on my blending, uhm as i'm not english, i have only some idea what it could be maybe some one can explain
    and please also give me some tips how i can increase my blending
