Blending is basically making the extraction look like it belongs in the signature,
You can do it by putting something that overlapps a part of the extraction, like a shape,
You can also do it by smudging, gradiant maps and use of clours.
It is a rather easy thing, I think you can blend, its just using mostly pen tool shapes makes it much harder to blend.
You can look up tutorials here on AF that should show you some blending methods or google it. X3
My new Boba Fett set. Inspired by how much of a sweet old man the actor is XD
I love Star Wars.
i love you <3 XD
New set. Extract, pen tooling, apophysis and VOILA!
Lighting effects look really nice in this signature. I don't really like the white light on his face though, I dunno, too brightish. I think that his hand thrusting out is too blurry while his face is too sharp, makes the contrast between them look a bit hard to focus on. I love the molten feel on the right side of the siggy though. Very neat. Its also very awesome how you did the text.
I really liked this sig a lot. I liked the shades of green and the flow coming from the extract. I would have suggested to use the dodge and burn tool to make some of the parts around the extract to stand out some more, but I'm totally loving the outcome ^^
Your latest sig has some awesome depth. That's Vader's apprentice right? lol. The background looks cool but I feel you could have added something to add flow to his arm that could really bring him out some more, like pen tool strokes or a clipping mask. But don't sweat it, its a very cool piece so keep it up.
You sure have got depth down on that one. ^_^
That hand. It's reaching out to get me. Craptastic, that's awesome. @_@ The text though, might want to just get rid of it all together. Nevertheless, that's one awesome sig. You're improving in leaps and bounds young padawan. 8D
Now as Trey said, Dodge and Burn some parts, preferably the background. Go cheat and use a stock background xD Blur it to the optimum depth. Colors may serve as a problem, since using a green filter would make it like a forest @_@ Sexy work on the pentool, jesu. Very awesome work on flow (people like me usually make em so awkward, it takes tons of tries and references)
anddd, just noticed, the vectors looks plain as well >_>
Focus is to the point, Text is GOD awesome, Colors are a-okay(but could be improved), overall, Very clean design without much interference with other styles.
Very nice ;3
Hm-hm, nice depth ^_^
But try to avoid over-blurring.
And then there's this problem, the hand is blurred, the background isn't haha.
Imo, improvement can be done
the darkness of the guy is what urks me most, could be fixed with curves/levels though.
It's cold here, so my mind isn't thinking and my hands aren't typing well, so I may edit this to continue
bribegift for Maru :3
The loops around the cat took flippin' forever to do, but the outcome looks pretty cool. Also, I know the extract doesn't stand out a whole deal, but that's the point of the Cheshire Cat :3 (well it's supposed to be, anyway <.<)
And another set I made. I just got bored and wanted to do something a bit cute. It's not one of my best works, I'll admit that. But hey, it's pink.
Also, a gift for darling Trey. Because we all know who is the chief and who is Arby :3

Okay, so it's been two days since I last edited this thread (and still no replies ._.)
And here's my favorite set so far:
Did you make the vector yourself? I can really admire people who make vectors, takes a lot of patience which I normally don't have.
I love the simplicity of it. And the text of course. Its very BAM. and you dont get all mixed up in the background because well its not there *0*
Awesome stuffs SSD ;333
Heh - I like the Bleach sig - it's cute. ^^ The white border with the smallish pink text looks very clean.
The Gorillaz set is great as well. It's so perfectly simple, and I love the text. It stands out and carries on with the half-cut theme of the sig.

Here's a couple of updates:
A Bugs sig.
And this is something liek 'alien syndrome'. But I just used it because it would work nicely
Alrighty! I love all your effects SSD, and your amazing with the pentool, I still need to mess around with the pentool, any ideas?
@Fox: Tips! I can't say I have many ><' but I'd just play around with new shapes until you find a style that fits the way you work with your sigs.
@AnimeDes: I completely forgot to put my name on >< I noticed when uploaded it but couldn't be bothered to go get and edit it.
Thank you both for your comments ^^
EPIC STYLE *A *
The blue and yellow you used worked so well together <3
And the borders -SNAPS- works! Love the thickness there
Then, the image choice is a bit strange ^^;; Cheerful Vector-style with an angry rifle-totting woman? Doesn't work all too well, I'd say a stock background (of inside a cargo ship or something) would do. Along with some small blending changes.
but thats all Imho
Love your pentooling! : D
