Thanks Charlie. I took that, did some layer mode effects to make Method Man look darker, and just kinda kept with the cover art theme and made it look firey.

Ah, thanks man. Using the layer effects in 7 made it so easy.

Two new additions, I think the second one came out better.

Second one did come out better, but I like the effect that you have on the first one for the Black thingy as well.

Thanks guys.

It is French Leo, it says "Pieuvre Armement". Literally "Octopus Armaments". It's the name of one of the PMC Groups in Metal Gear Solid 4, led by Laughing Octopus. That's why I went with that render that kind of looked like tentacles.

For those interested here's the article: [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Forgot to add these as I made them. If I do use the ones made for myself again, the Ax!s tags will be removed for obvious reasons, but for gallery purposes (and laziness) they are to be left on for now.

Thanks Leo. To me it doesn't look as impressive as what the others can do, hence why I usually never enter the SOTW contest. I always try the tutorials but tend to botch them somehow, gotta stick with what you know I guess.

I like them Street and I honestly think that you should enter the SOTW, it gives you a good reason to practise some more and get better and who knows just because you might not like your sigs as much as what other people are producing, this doesn't necessarily mean that other people think that I mean last SOTW I submitted a super old sig of mine that no one here had seen just to help create a bit more competition. I was surprised with how it went, barely losing out to Banded's Capelli sig, which I thought was far superior to the one I submitted. So who knows what other people think and as Endlo- always says, we are our hardest critics on ourselves.

The issue I have with your sigs is that the renders look too separate to the background, except for the first photo one. Now while I am personally useless at using renders and tend to steer clear of using them this is just my opinion of sigs that I do like.

SB creates a similar style of sigs to yours, here are some of SBs ones that illustrate the point I mean:

He has managed to use renders but merge them with the background, rather than a distinct separation between the two I think that this is the biggest difference between your sigs and SBs.

Also when you are working through tutorials, don't try to emulate exactly what they are doing in the tutorial, instead pay attention to the techniques as opposed to the particular colours and positioning of brushes etc so you can add these techniques to your set of tools to use when creating your own sigs. It also means that when you are creating a sig from a tutorial you come out of it with something that is your own and you don't just learn how to create that exact sig, you also might discover other things through mistakes you make which could look good.

I do agree, I have a difficult time trying to blend them into the background. I don't know what it is but it just never comes out looking good.

I do attempt that when I try the tutorials, but somewhere something always goes wrong though, and I can never put my finger on it. I'm also the type that doesn't learn things easily when setting off to learn something on my own. Not to mention the completely obvious fact that I get easily discouraged. I'm more the type that physically needs to have someone teach me how to do things.

I've tried various forms of artwork over the years, and despite the amount of practice I put in I can't get over that level of mediocrity that I always peak at. Perhaps I'm not an artist and should pursue a different career and hobby.

New sig that I just made. I really dig the band Demon Hunter's new album art, so I had to incorporate it into a sig.
