I prefer the one with colour. It feels kind of dark in both of them, and there isn't much flow or depth. The effects are cool though.

I was mainly going for the effects, but how can I make the depth more? I thought that there was enough depth...

Things like depth of field and lighting helps create good depth.

a little dark for me. (granted ive made darker sigs too and they are never rated well) The lighting needs work in my opinion to bring more attention to link. My attention seems to go a bit more off to the right compared to him

Next time, I'll focus on getting better lighting.

Or look at my current sig. The lighting is really obvious in it. The lighting in your signature would have come from on top of link.

yes the lighting in yours is very obvious which is a good thing, though i prob woulda moved it a bit more to the right so the attention is more at the render

It's where the lighting on the stock was, and if it were closer, It wouldn't look natural. As you can see, the shadows cover most of his face. If the light were closer to him, the shadows wouldn't look right.

A key to lighting, Pravinj, is to make it look as natural as possible. That's really what lighting and depth are about.

Depends what type of depth you are after though. You can create depth in any tag, it mainly depends on how you want to go about it.


For example, as Campe said, you have natural lighting, which would be using the natural shadows of the render or focal to create your lighting points, this is the easy way to do it, but also the easiest way to mess it up if you do it wrong or make it clunky.

A proper example of depth lighting like this:



Realy natural lighting is the best way to describe it. Without the lighting and the shadows falling where they are, plus teh design of the room, the picture would be extremely flat.

Now, you can also create depth with layers and and placement, ))one of my more favorite methods, such as this:
((tag made by DARK))


Notice how in addition to the lighted spots and shadows, he's design of the art utilizes smaller parts and details to force more depth into the pieces, plus perspective lines, while giving you something more to look at it.


In your tags I prefer the colors, because b n w is mainly used to create a certain atmo, or utilize deep shadows in contrast to bright lighting, which your tag doesn't have, thoug it does have lighting and shadows.
