Please no flaming if you are someone who can't stand newbie sigs I ask you to leave. Also if your someone who can't accept others people tastes etc. Then please leave!

Ok I was pondering on a long time to start making sigs. Always asking others etc is pretty annoying. So well I started out with lots of dificulties and new stuff. I made the following: (Ps I used Adobe photoshop cs3)
Also I gotta note some say Mark well only one says Trainheartnet. This is cause my Real life name is Mark ok ? I did not rip steal anything. I did use renders from sites though and I did use some C4d's that's all.
Ok my: first:http://i33.photobucket.com/albums/d83/meemai1/SigMark.jpg

I like the background =DD Though, the extract doesn't match the color/background. Also, work a bit on the foreground and text. Overall is quite good. Some adjust layers may do something to the colors ~.~

For the overall appearance of your stuff, the one thing that will help you is blending. On the last signature (the gunslinger) you have partly achieved that. Your colors are an area you can aim for changing. Just try to make the colors of the overall signature match what you want people to look at as the center piece in your signature.

Hehehehe lol both got the flyff blade ^^. Yours really good though.

Well I got some experiments done. And Serated thanks I will go work on that a bit more but keep in mind I am still a newbie searching my way trough the progam. =)

Here theres some failed hellsing sig the collors don't match I post it anyways,

Also another failure I think anyways here it comes.
Here we got TrainHeartnet from Black Cat:

And Rock Lee from naruto also a experiment:

Also I would like to ask where do you guys get your renders. Etc it would be nice and I also am planning to go watch in this forum more sigs for ideas and stuff. Anyways if someone has some nice tips for me. Or sites I should check all information would be more then welcome.=)

I don't really like any of the backgrounds and they don't really match up with the colors of the render.If you keep making sigs you really should look at some tut's

Next time read the boring text I putted before I putted my sigs here xD.
I use Adobe Photoshop CS3

And for the poster above me I know I shouls check some tuts still wether you like it wether others like it wether it's good or not. Who decides it it's all about tastes. I could find you a object that's so ugly in my eyes but in someone else eyes it might be the biggest treasure ever.

Have a look in the uploads part of AF. Serated has a tonne of extractions ready for you to use as long as you make reference that it was done by Serated =].

I normally tend to do my own extractions but there are times [like now] where I really don't want to. Oh and through critique you get better so ask for maximum abuse in order to get better - well that is what I do. If you don't like their comments just ignore it but keep in mind no one is knocking you down, they are just putting the truth nice and blunt so you can't deny it.

My comments : Whatever you did in your current sig's background, try to use the same thought pattern in your next sig. The gigantos blur in the most recent ones makes the extract stand out too much.

Keep up the good work.
