hi guys. so yea, here's my gallewy :3 i use paint, gimp (a bit cuz its complicated xD) and photofiltre but for these creations i only used photofiltre. i started makin creations not long ago so im not that good. any tips would be appreciated :)

EDIT: Now I start using GIMP a lot and Photofiltre for the fonts. I sometimes used GIMP for the fonts too seen as I swap it round then blur it like in the creation of 11/06/2010.

And I'm starting to use Photoshop too.

I'm also starting to draw freehand on Paint and on paper!

Mini-modding is not okay. :c
Next time, at least say something about the thread you're replying to to say on-topic.

they're pretty good. the texts are pixely and watch out for the feathering on the pictures.
nice job

Thanks guys.
what do you mean "feathering"?

Well, I won't give more advanced advice since you're only starting.
They're not too bad if it was just the first few days or week, and I think you should focus more on your GIMP program, since it's the closest you have to Photoshop. Even though it's more complicated than the other programs, just mess about with the options in it and you can learn that way. That is just my opinion though.

Now, for the graphics part. The best there would probably be the Zoroark one, since the colours are fitting and the text is fitting better than the others. I think you should just keep practicing, and make your backgrounds better, then after that, move onto render blending and placement, because you shouldn't just have the render on top and that's it. I also think that you should leave out the text now, since it's kind of ruining most of your work, so yeah, leave it out, and over time, learn how to put it right and not have it huge and the focal point. Lastly, if you're stuck at what to do to make things better, try some tutorials.

Thanks, that got me thinking! But which one is easier to use, GIMP or Photoshop?

Aizuke
March 6th, 2010, 02:23 AM
It depends really. Apparently a lot of people find Photoshop easier, it's just on personal preference.

WonderGirl
March 6th, 2010, 02:52 AM
Ok. I'll try to see if I can download photoshop and try it out.

AtomicoExploda
March 6th, 2010, 06:04 AM
Well, I agree with Aizuke, it's a personal preference. But most people find Photoshop easier because most people use it. Also, I don't think either of them would be easy when first using them, it just gets easier as you use it.

Ok. Thanks a lot for the help :) but I have one problem that annoys me. I don't know how to do stylish backgrounds. If you haven't noticed, that ones I made were very simple. How do you make backgrounds like the one in AtomicoExploda's sig?

Well basically, most people just add c4d and/or some stocks to make their sigs looks stylish. Try adding c4ds, it's always looks good to signatures. :)

Yeah I'm starting to play around with those, I just downloaded a pack with tons of them. Thanks!

They are a bit plain and flat. Try some C4D's, or a different style. Play around with it and try new things and keep practicing and you'll get better before you know it.

WonderGirl

Hmm ok, next one to come up will be with a c4D.

WonderGirl

~Added a new creation. The first one has visible c4D's but I smudged the c4D in the second one. Belissimo!

D: FINALLY, somebody speaks French!
Please VM me, I would like a signature done, like the Fire Wolf one, but saying 'kasabian_', and having a Sneasel on instead of Qwilfish.

WonderGirl
July 11th, 2010, 01:02 AM
Thanks guys! Like I said, I'm starting to experiment more with Photoshops, so I'll try new effects :)

Wow kasabian_, do you like my art that much? Cool :3 Lol I'll send you a VM right away.

~ Added a new creation.

I want to learn how to draw both on paper and on Paint, so I'm looking up a few tutorials on dA. I made an eye for the first time and I'm so happy about the result! I know it can be improved, so if anyone wants to help me out, please do so. I need some critics to advance. But it's the first time I draw something so well on Paint and I'm so proud of myself because I'm actually learning how to draw! ^_^

Don't Brush Wh*re.it is very boring and bland...you have horrid text placement and font choice..i didn't seen succesful lighting. add better effects...make the signuate pop more as if it was a real professional photo by bluring the bg and sharpening the focal.....

WonderGirl
July 11th, 2010, 05:14 AM
Yeah I know I don't choose good fonts and my signatures don't look that professional but I'm not that good at techniques yet.

There's no need to insult me, you're here to criticize to help, not to make me feel bad. Man, some people are so rude and bad mannered.

Cycle
July 11th, 2010, 06:22 AM
Everyone's into grunge now )=
I suggest not using text, don't add an outer glow and move it closer to the focal if you're actually going to use it. Lighting needs work, and you messed up the flow with the brushes in the back. Lacks the basics, although I can see improvement.
Keep trying, you'll get better!

keoni
July 11th, 2010, 07:43 AM
I wasn't being rude. When I over-do brushing it gets called "Brush Whoring" if your not mature enough to accept that some critisim must be rough why post your gallery because that is the only way you will improve.

parallelzero
July 11th, 2010, 09:39 AM
Brush whoring is a term commonly used in graphics, so you weren't being insulted ^^;

That said, keoni, if you're going to give constructive criticism, keep in mind that she's in the process of learning. Using such vague descriptions isn't going to help her at all, so in that case don't bother posting at all. There's a difference between "constructive criticism" and just "criticism". You were doing the latter, we ask you do the former around here.

Anyways, I think the OP is doing pretty good. When I first started with graphics my creations were absolutely horrid. I think if you experiment with a few more techniques you'll be on the right track. Just don't forget this forum has a tutorials thread (http://www.pokecommunity.com/showthread.php?t=170876) to help you along!

I will work on the contsructive part of criticism

WonderGirl
July 12th, 2010, 05:25 AM
Oh my bad. I didn't know that xD

Thanks very much guys. I think I'll make some banners without text for a while. And thanks for the tutorials link!

keoni
July 12th, 2010, 01:30 PM
I will try my best to give constructive critism..
Pro's
+Smudging Decently
+Some Filters
Cons
-Font Choice's
-2 Focals.
-Disolve looking border on the empoleon one.
..anyways....you have room for much improvement. I honestly don't care for some of the tutorials on here so i recommend www.deviantart.com www.sigtutorials.com and www.google.com

~ Added two new creations. The Baby Naruto one isn't that great apart from the fact that the render is cute, but I love the one I did for Halo Sonic. Maybe the typo could've been improved, but I still like it!
