What program are yo suing?

It looks like you lowered the opacity for the render it's self, the text doesn't seem to work (Don't worry I can't do text either :|) I like the efects and flow it's just the render doesn't seem to fit in to this signature at all.

For a firdt sig? It's better than what most people that start Graphics come up with, you keep this up and you will be a master at Graphics Thumbs Up

thats even better than some of the sigs made by people far past their first. if this is your first you've come off to a good start.

tips:

-dont lower the opacity of the focal, it usually doesn't work out well.
-try using foreground and background effects, i.e, effects behind and in front of the focal. this helps with depth.
-work on composition. usually the text looks best next to the focal, but not outshining it. But that doesnt apply to every sig, but most of the time thats what works.


I like the colours and effects youve used =D really nice. kiu

For a first it's really good. I'd have left it text-less, myself, and maybe done a little judicious blurring on some of the sharper bits (well, or done a few other things that take the sharpness off that I can't be bothered to explain).

I'm undecided about the render. I think the opacity's just low enough that it fits into the sig, though. It helps that the render has a circular bit which matches the circular flow of some of the effects in the sig.

90 percent of the time I'd agree with you about the focal, but in this case if he hadn't fiddled the opacity it wouldn't have worked colour-wise at all.

I agree that it's generally not a good thing to do, but I think it actually works here.

EDIT: Hum. The forum eats percentage signs. How odd.

Looks like a Pogeyman, but yeah, I think it's mostly white.

Recolouring is pretty easy, but this guy's only a beginner, so... I think the way he lowered the opacity actually works here, especially as most of the effects are rather ethereal.

I think the Hue/Saturation filter would easily work with this render. Since it's gold and white, using the Hue/Saturation would only affect the gold on it. I think.

And if not, well using a Purple/white gradient map and setting it to hue/color (or even maybe on normal) would work well enough.

As far as lowering the opacity of the render is concerned, it would probably look better if the black on the sig is lowered as well... This is decreasing the contrast of the sig, more easily done by brushing in white over the black parts, setting it to soft light, and lowering the opacity of that layer just a bit.

Then what I'd do is increase the contrast of the tag using the Curves filter.

..Being your first tag and all, I would imagine you've no idea what I'm talking about, so Iwouldn't worry about it for now. ;)

That's only because Becky has half a brain.

But you're new to this, so I wouldn't expect you to know any of it. ;D
