Here's the latest sigs I've done, excluding the pokevector ones...I've been away from Photoshop a lot lately, haven't had any real inspiration and classes and social life take up a lot more time now.

premonition.png looks ok…
I'd like to see something without a c4 though.

Agreed with munna (again -shot-). Post more works withought c4ds. Even though you're c4d focal tag is great.

they are pretty good, don't like the 4th one as I can't see anything much in it

The only ones with C4Ds are the last two.

The first one is smudging.

The second one is the pen tool + some filters like motion blur, and small round brushes for the dots around some of the lines.

Third one is photomanip background and lightning effects with the pen tool and some filters.

The 4th one is pen and line tool plus warping. And a blue brush set to some mode for that bit of color.

The last two are predominantly C4D.


Furthermore, what does it matter if they're C4D or not? I make all my C4D renders if that's a concern...

It's just that in the graphics industry people don't use c4d.
That's why I'm biased towards em.
Really like the forth then. xD

Since when do people not use Cinema4D in the graphics industry? That's a ludicrous statement. I've been into graphics for around 6 years, I happen to know that Cinema4D is used professionally in graphics probably just as much as Photoshop is.

The graphics companies I've seen didn't exactly know what c4d was.
And you sure it's c4d and not 3dsm?
I know that 3d programs are used but more in the animation part of design. As in like when a car turns into garbage or w/e. I don't mean like pixar and that stuff… I mean like billboard ads.
You aren't exactly animating these though. :/

There's more to professional graphics than ads. Professional graphics is simply the process of making income through graphics. And Cinema4D isn't quite as popular as 3D Studio Max, which can do a bit more, but it's still a highly respectable 3D animation program. In sig making, it's come to be used pretty much exclusively for abstract effect renders. I usually don't even use my effect renders anymore.

Here's a picture as an example of it being used more professionally.

That all said, I still don't really even see the issue with using it. It's not like it's a shortcut to making more awesome pieces or something. It takes just as much skill, if not more, to make the effect renders in Cinema4D, and use them effectively, as it does to just use Photoshop. Now yes, some people take other people's renders (albeit they're resources, free-to-use) and they just make a sig with those and claim awesomeness. But that's not what my sigs are about.

BTW I am only discussing, I don't want to seem argumentative here.

I know it's more than ads… but identity is a large part of what a graphic designer does.
That's the kind of stuff I meant… but the abstract stuff… eh.
I don't think they are a short cut either, I just don't like the way people rush to them for what they think will make their image look great. Huzzah for stereotyping. xD
I wouldn't say I was being argumentative, or you for that matter. xD
Made anything new over these couple days? =D

Haven't even opened Photoshop, actually. XD

I need to get some inspiration. I'll have to look at that one topic on PR with all the amazing sigs.

Here's my latest ones, two of which you've all already seen as SOTW entries.

The last one I just made, and I don't really like it, but meh.

Hey. I decided to join after seeing your topic as I was thinking about becoming a graphic designer. I have been using ps since april so that's half a year now.

I have to say though your sigs are very nice. I especially like the darkrai/w/e that poke is
(I haven't picked up the game since June so I've started to become forgetful/lose my pro skills). The effects and colors are very nice.

As for the Blaziken I see it as being better without the text.

YOOM-TAH, I really love your signatures. "Restoration" is my favorite one. It's simple, yet really beautiful. I really like the Darkrai/Cres one, especially since it fits the SOTW theme so well.

But yes, I agree with iMusion, there's something off about the Blaziken text.

Keep up the good work! :]

Do you give .psd's for LR?

October 4th, 2008, 10:25 AM
Not really, only if I do a tutorial and I don't care about the sig much. But usually even then I don't, just because I don't organize my sigs very well at all. So it'd be pretty hard to learn from them. XD

And yeah, I agree with you guys about the text. Meh, if I cared about the sig I'd take it off. >_>

Holy crap YOOM-TAH, the premonition tag is amazing. D: Sure you don't want to do a tutorial on it? ;D

YOOM-TAH
October 4th, 2008, 02:34 PM
I hate doing tutorials because my sigs are so unorganized it'd take forever to go through and do. :/

Another new one, I'm actually really happy with the outcome of this one. (Hence the currenting of it...)

The shininess and cheerfulness of the sig makes me bitter. x; jk.
No border would make it better … like he wasn't inside a screen and more like he is popping out.
Jirachi needs to have shades rather than tones… Or have the bg look less realistic. xD
Oh even better is if you made the jirachi like live action like in drawn together. xD

I feared the background would come off as too realistic...I don't really think it is that much, but I'm not sure what else to do. >.<

I dunno I love it as is though.

Alright here's my newest sig, I'm pretty satisfied with the outcome!
