And Bush, but you don't care about him so it's okay. Lmao J/K Bush Big Grin

Nice signatures Bolt! One thing though, try to make the rendered pictures so that they don't have white lines around it. Other than that, they're awesome!

I did that in the first 2 but I got tired of using paths too so I simplified my brain. Big Grin
With the first three, I used the blend tool to make the background but in the fourth it was a background from google.

ok... here is my view... try to get better renders, when you render a pic yourself, Shrink the render by like 1 px and feather it by like 1 px.. that normally cleans up the outline around it. Try throwing more than just 1 element in the picture. ply with the opacity of layers and just try experimenting more with more than 1 focal point or element in the pic.

On the Absol one I couldn't blur the logo so sorry, and with the knight one I tried animation but it PHAILED. In the bball one I tried my best to render the hoop. Hope you like em. Big Grin

Nice job Bolt!

For the BasketBall signature, the 3 balls, the hoop, and the ownt logo have white lines around them. Use Scale tool like I said in the past, it will come out MUCH better. Great sig though.

Absol sig is pretty cool, but the logo has white lines around it. Use the paths tool for renders Smile

The golden one was good, but you need to render it with paths tool so there is no white outline around it.

The knight sig was good, but there was white outline around it again, there was black outline around the knight, and part of the shield was cut off.

For some of the sigs, take a layer and experiment with the opacity until it looks how you want it to. Again, Nice job on all of them Bolt!

P.S - Bolt asked me to critique his signatures.

Thx Lee, and Dark, I asked you to critique them besides the white lines. When I really want a beastly sig, I will use paths, and btw what does opacity do?

Here, I used Paths. I'd say I'm pretty satisfied with myself. Big Grin I gaussian blurred it at one to give it some effect. I kept it simple but sweet. When I dragged around the dwarf dude I didn't want to cut off some of the head and I wanted the logo behind him. I also wanted to catch most of the crossbow in the picture so you know he isn't some random dwarf.

Well, one thing you can do is use the airbrush tool to make it look like its kind of like a shadow. For opacity, it's the amount of transparency the layer that you are editing has. If it is less, it will look more transparent, if it is more (100), then it will be much easier to see. Turning the opacity down is almost like using the airbrush tool.

Nice job Bolt! Only thing I recommend is getting more brushes and more fonts.
