    Default Sa5m's Signatures!

    Hi! I recently got into sig making.
    Here are my latest ones. I won't post my first two because those are just disgraceful.
    Criticism appreciated!

    I like the one that is your default Aaya. The text is a bit off centered where it says, "I'll bite you to death", but the different font's you used were creative and look nice all together. Also I enjoy the blend of the character in the background. This is a great start. Remember to keep adding a border to your signatures.

    I like your sigs. I like the first one the best. One day I will change my name to "Jingle Baka" and you will have to make the set.

    Ciao, I'm not sure which text too use because truthfully I'm not really big on text styles but I do know changing the font up a bit would help. Sorry I couldn't be much of an assistance. Please forgive me my friend =[

    You can always look for tutorials here in AF, or maybe experimenting things will really affect your signature. Try blending the text with the background. You can also try changing the lighting, but before that what type of program do you use to make the signatures?

    By the way, keep up the good work. I like to see more of your work and how much you can do.

    I'm going to take a very random stab in the dark and say that sig is from Romeo x Juliet? Now for some criticism. The color/text matches very well but it still feels very plain/bland to me. Maybe try to make it less plain, all I can think of up to now.

    I find this one appeals to me with it's use of monochromatic color, good usage of fore, middle, and background, and scene and arrangement composition.

    It makes me want to pay attention more to the text than the other things around it. Try putting it somewhere so it is not the one standing out. x.x Anyways, you are improving so I know you can go higher.

    Thank you Ciao x]

    I'll admit its not my favorite signature made but its not the worst and I actually do like it. The text doesn't fully match with the picture but you are getting better at sig making and I do hope to see more from you Ciao. Good luck x]!

    Thanks guys! I realize that my text needs improvement. And I guess I need to be more creative in general...

    Here's one I made today... it's ugly and boring. SORRY. D: I made a spot for text but I couldn't think of anything cool to put there. So it's empty, haha.




    Criticism MORE than welcome, as always.


    Another one just finished:

    The smudging is a bit too rigid in my opinion and the first version is much better than the second. The random gray spots really destroys the overall feel of the signature.

    Two major problems with this signature, in my honest opinion, is the typography number one, and the lack of blending.

    The typography is everywhere and it doesn't look as elegant as it seems that you wanted it to. I believe that a signature/tag should not have so many words in it unless its sole purpose is to be the tiny text to emphasize the typography. Sometimes some signatures look better without any text on it. Try not to spread the text around so much to make it seem as though it is filled up better if you know what I mean.

    The blending, there is none. Refer to one of Serated's TOTW (Tip of the Week) concerning blending. That will explain a bit more in detail with examples about blending. You should also learn a bit of flow since it has to do with blending as well.

    If you don't want to that's fine. That's just how I feel about your tags though. Keep it going though.

    Thank you!!!
    Now this is what I need. Good, constructive criticism.
    I'll check out the TOTW.
    I see what you're saying about the blending. I agree... I always have trouble with that.
    Text has never been my forte. I'm still trying to work on that.
    Thank you. (:

    You're sigs are nicely done for a beginner. =3

    there are some problems I want to point out though.
    1. I'm not gonna repeat balance, but on the topic of typography, try using more than just black and white. Although black and white are easy to use, having a colored text can do much more than just plain black text. Black and white text actually do not work most of the time.

    2. Try adding a light source or some lighting. But make sure it matches the render.This will somewhat help the signature look whole, but don't use it to subsitute blending.

    The "random grey areas" look really doesn't suit the last sig.
    I want to see more :3

    Siggeh made by me. Taking requests ATM! =3

    That's a good idea about the colored text. :3

    My thought behind the gray areas was that it kind of fits the quote... like the guy is "dark" but he's wearing a white shirt. Idk, lolz.

    So I was looking at Serated's TOTW blending tutorial... and I don't see the steps to get blending. Like what do I do after using the hard round brush?

    (referring to this)

    It's not really a tutorial on how to blend, but rather pointing out what signatures are good examples of blending and what signatures are not.

    In essence, blending is simply placing things on top of the subject/extract to create a bit of depth. The mini tutorial on the bottom is a mere example of very easy blending.

    I suggest just trying a few tutorials and you will get a natural feel for blending.
