TomCat's sig thread. Yes it sucks :)

Postby TomCat on Thu Nov 26, 2009 4:58 pm

Ok so I tried a bit of sig making with PS ages ago on here with the now Banned 3PK (EDIT: "Now on probation" :) ) and was an absolute disaster.. The thread is in the Hardwood Classics section somewhere if you want to check it out lol. So anyway back then I didn't really know the first thing about PS and brushes and all the effects and what not so I've decided to try again but actually taken some time to learn the basics through tutorials and such so that I can actually maybe make some half decent signatures. I made my first one with the help of a tutorial which i found online and I will post others up as I do them... Constructive criticism is encouraged :)

I know MCR is all emo and shit but its really hard to read the black parade one (my early sigs had issues with this too) keep trying dude, it comes easier every one you make.

Yes MCR is all emo and shit lol but I hate that... Emo's are my least favorite people in the world, and I don't really like MCR that much, there's just a few of their songs that I REALLY like... Thanks for the feedback guys!

I'd probably take the blurring/drop shadow off the text and try to make it blend more into the background. Sort of like this...

Otherwise, pretty decent job.

TheDee, Thanks mate

Jae, Thanks for the tips, except I can't see or access the picture that you put up as an example :?

Okay so I made another one to use as my sig to advertise my Association Story..

Image

EDIT: Made some changes to try and make it blend properly and fix the cutting...

Well it's not bad.
But the cutting is pretty shitty,next time you have bad cutting on players,just stroke them,or put up a shadow,to cover up the bad cutting. :)
