Def too sharp with the C4D, IMHO. I'd maybe separate the two halves of the face too, it looks strange that the mouths don't line up. Perhaps widening the split between them would ease that effect off some more. Thinking

The little Ratchets look like space-fillers too, I'd swap them for clan tag and name to balance the sides out. Wink

I thought so on the c4.

Maybe I can pop tiny ratchets kiddie corner either side, and name and tag in the others.

I could play with the face. Not sure what it would take. Thats pretty much the cover of the game I guess?
I just used it as the base for a background, and it became the foreground on me anyhow.

Thinking

I like the idea though of pulling them apart.

Thanks Leo

No worries, bud. Wink

I think it could be because the faces are so focal now that it stands out more, IDK... Maybe I'm just being too picky? Thinking

No I got it!!!


I'll pull the faces apart, resize tiny ratchet to the full scale size that he was, and have him busting through the faces.

Super thanks!

C4d's are perfect.
Not sure on the mini ratchet in the middle. Dunno why but seems to take focus of the rest or I don't like the way he looks posed...

Still shit hot though.

Same, I like to see brighter sigs, as most of the sigs I do are either dark, but Six got the bright colours right.

Yeah if I had just motion blurred the c4s it would have been better. But once I heard the idea of splitting the faces I just had to try. What can I say, I was lost with out your guidance and input. Smile
In the end it made me kind of work a bit more and pressed me into something better I think.
That final sig has at least 10-12 layers that I worked as best I could.

I just used the ones from the stock, and blurred the edges into the c4s. I missed some spots I see.
idk, I kind of like the final one more but both were going ok.

Erase the lines over his face and a little down his neck.. Use a soft brush so it looks like it fades. Create a new layer and set it to soft light and hit the sides of him with the colors around him. Then create a new layer and fill it with black. Set it to Linear dodge. Take a 65 pix soft brush and select a color from the BG. Create a light source from this. Toy around with it and mess with the opacity until it looks real. Then top it of with a gradient layer of black and white set to luminosity at 34%. Then another gradient layer of orange/purple set at soft light on 42%. this should make it look blended a lot more. Wink

EDIT*

You could even take the color from his mask and brush on the mask on soft light to make it look like it is glowing. Graphics discussion - Page 3 1282

ok i've been away for awhile so i think its time to update my sig.
But before i start that i wanna know size wise how big can i actually make the sig? (as in dimensions) or how big a sig would u all like to see?

Because i found one of my old sig i never finished and i thought i might finish it and use it but only thing is it's 1000 x 300 which i think would be to big so ill have to see if i can shrink it without distorting the pic.

So do you think 1000 x 300 would be to big? Hmm i think it would be but hey that's why i'm asking.

I think the standard is 450 x 200.
Thats the standard size, what I think you have is Banner size.

Eh maybe who knows i think it's actually bigger than a banner. oh well i guess that uncompleted one goes into the big it'll be to much trouble to fix it up ill just start from scratch and make a new sig.

Hmm what to have on it....?

Why not take parts of the Banner type, Rip them out and place them in on the smaller template.

Kinda cool, way too much going on for my liking though...you need an actual focal point - I'd size it down a bit, and stick to just one render/one of those doods, then put your text on the other side. Tone down the brush/pen tooling stuff a bit then add some lighting to ze dood to draw your eye there...IMHO. The blue thing in the middle is cool, maybe stick that behind one of the renders?
