Maximo - GFX display.
Recently Ive developed my new style in sigs as you could see. The very first breakthough was my Sasuke Sharingan Sig which made me make sigs differently. Since then I practiced and practiced and practiced and as I refined the process I think Ive finaly on the right track to once make pro status.
Well, thats what I think anyway so Ive created this thread to have your opinions guide me further. I present these 3 samples plus my Gaara sig.
So now, what do you think ? Are those sigs appealing ? What should I change or improve ? What sucks ? Do you have some advice that would let me build on my improvement ?
Thanx for your time :)
top notch work buddy, you've definetely gotton better!
I really love the backgrounds of the first and the Gaara sig, I think they look amazing! And I reeeally like the colors on the first! The only thing I can think of is that the render on the first sig looks a bit over-sharpened, but they all look great to me :)
You are really good, at Sig making!
I like the 2nd one the most.
I also like one of your prior Sigs,(it was green, with Kakashi in it, I think).
BTW: Is your favourite colour orange?

Anyway, yeah I pretty much love orange, and red and black and white !
They all look good, especially the second and third one. Can you make a tutorial for the third you did for me?
Since theres gonna be a voting for Best GFX and VA creator, I think that being a nominee means I should present something for the voters. Well, recent stuff, here goes :
Plus, I also want to know what you think about my coloring :)
Rate, comment, anything - will be just glad :)
I would really appreciate someone to change the name of the thread to "Maximo - GFX DISPLAY" thx a million
I think you wash the midtones and burn the highlights a bit too much, but other than that you're certainly improving.
U really have gotten better. Soon I'll catch up to you, and then surpass you!
Im really eager to improve but I dont understand exactly what you mean by "washing the midtones". Im not at all hurt or anything like that, Im just .. you know ... not that used to the higher terminology of photoshop. So please, if you dont mind, explain Rav :) ?

When I got the sig 95% done, I make a Gaussian Blur and set the blending on screen with some 30-50% opacity which causes the highlights to get burned - according to the blending mode I choose. Well, its not like I use this habbit in every of my sigs though :D. I see I should cut this crap out of my sig making, unleast it doesnt look well.
Seems like I should keep up the pace. Dont get fooled by what I posted earlier though, I am still kinda rusty after few months of break from oopening Photoshop (my license even got expired D: !!!), so expect an even bigger improvement later on ;). Am planning to read through numerious new tuts and collect some advices.
