Yes I know, I'll make like a lot more before I'll try to make a REALLY REALLY REALLY good one, which will have Arceus in it. Wink


If you constantly mess around with the effects you will improve much faster. Also mess around with the Layer properties. Such as Overlay and Vivid Light. These also help the signatures. But as always Duplicate the layer first :]

Yeah, I learned that. Pressing random buttons beats watching tutorials. I got bored of them, so I just took your guy's advise and press random buttons. ^^

Looks better. Also just so you know. Your render is your main focus.

Okay, so far my good ones have only had one render. But now I am taking on a different style. This time it has two renders! Mew & Mewtwo. What do you guys think?

Sorry, but the other people are right, although the puzzle background looks pretty cool, with the renders it just looks sorta bizarre. Uh.. Also the text is a bit plain, try using effects on it and making it not as small, also changing the colour, i usually use black and white background and make the text a similar colour to the render(s) but thats just me. Wink

I'd also like to let you know that smudge is an important part of signatures, it adds lots of cool elements to it, But generally don't use plain circular brushes to smudge (i use grunge brushes). But most important of all, be happy with your result, when i started making sigs they were crap, but then i just did what i thought looked awesome and other people seemed to like it as well even though it was extremely simple and took like 5 minutes. Cool

If you have skype, i could always screenshare with you and show you some cool stuff to do on photoshop too! Smile

Smoothen out the edges. It was kind of hard to tell where his tail ended or not so maybe you should define him a bit more with something like a outer glow or something.

Haha, and this is were I am stumped. I've tried to add an outer glow but it changes the render to look very weird with black and red lines and stuff. It doesn't look like the render anymore. How do I do this correctly without it messing up?

Okay, I made a new signature. Err... it's not as big as my last ones, but different is better right? Okay I added a glow to it and IMO it looks cool. What do you guys think? Also, OceanGuy281 is just someone who lives in my imagination. :3
