I like the Vegeta one, it IS simple but its fine anyways

I dont like the brolly one for the main reason of I hate renders on adobe, I rarely use Lighting efx, I use cloud, but I never never use lens flare, not matter how good ya sig is, a lens flare will ruin it (I know you did not use one, but just a tip :D)

Try downloading some Brushes, they can make a sig look very nice, I will have Ryoko get you some links :P (he knows tons)

also find some tuts on how too cut out images well, a well cut image makes all the different, if its done poorly (showing white or black or whatever the background was) it will end up ruining it

Ohh I went on abit..

*shuts up*

Mar 12th, 2003, 07:53 AM
thanks aisha.. that helped me plenty!:shocked:

i hope ryoko can get me the links!:laff:


*if u can, please list a good host for sigs, im desperate.. tired of asking friends to hos them for me*:S

Mar 12th, 2003, 08:41 AM
well, lycos.co.uk is a good host for sigs, I use it and it works perfectly!

For the sig, a nice clean start, the colors match the txt looks quite good with it, same with the pics, u just need to work a bit on ur bg's , something u will learn over time! Try out a lot of things and u'll get there!

yea.. right now im kinda confused... i want to learn how to make 3d things.. kinda like in ur sig.. :laff:

Mar 13th, 2003, 01:34 AM
Your picture quality is PERFECT can't get any sharper pics than those. The only two things I can critique and since your starting don't take em personally.

-Need to Download some texts all the default ones Suck bad.
-Need to develop BG skills and your sigs would look nice

As I said don't take these personally since you 'just' started. But so far It looks like you have potentiel.

*EDIT*- If you need an image host pm me the images you want hosted, I'll be glad to host them.

brushes are not neccesary.

look cool for first try :)

Mar 13th, 2003, 02:10 AM
i can tell that you will be a very good sig maker, very soon if you d/l some new text and practice bgs :)

Mar 13th, 2003, 02:54 AM
thanks for the crits guys! dont worry.. i dont take things personally.. i dont care if u say the suck.:laff:

the quality of ur pics is great! Only thing I could suggest, is the font. Of course backgrounds make sigs, fonts I believe play a bigger role. But, that's me, I mean - look at my sigs *cough* blow nuts *cough*. Yea...

I hope your going going to let me use that brolli one Mystix :tired:

Mar 14th, 2003, 04:46 AM
lol.. of course.. :D

also made some more.. :rolleyes:





Mar 14th, 2003, 07:56 AM
ur current one has a bit too much white, for me I like the "runner" one better, while I'm sceptical on your backgrounds, the font u use for ur sigs look very good, many ppl have problems with it but it looks great on ur sigs!

grtz Naz

Mar 15th, 2003, 05:58 AM
thanks for the crits.. i hope i get to learn some 3d soon.:rolleyes:

heres a little something i whipped up after playing ZOE2..


i made this one for some guy on irc.. named tff|skit... hope he likes it..


heres another one of Anubis.. but this one my friend made.. he posts on this forum.. but he is rare to see:laff: his name is Altron



Mar 15th, 2003, 03:53 PM
hey no fair you just started and your better than me and better than most ppl here who have been goin for some time!:p id get on the sig maker list if i were you

Mar 15th, 2003, 05:19 PM
I like the one u made for skit, I also like the first one u made for anubis, not the second one though.. seentheeffectwaaaytoomuch :) , u might want to concider to put a black outline on the font u used for the firs one for anubis

grtz Naz

Mar 15th, 2003, 09:56 PM
thanks for the crits naz.. always good to hear from u:D

oh.. and heres a little something i made for.. [=TM=]Vegetto.. hope he likes it.. crits.. please /me summons Naz!:p


heres another one i made for grOOvy.. my former ape memeber..:( hope he likes it


Mar 16th, 2003, 09:03 AM
Ok first of all....why didnt u give me credit on the first anubis? just cuz i beat u in zoe dont mean u gotta do that... anyway
The backrounds are cool but that vegetto pic is wierd. Try to lay off the extrusions too :p

Mar 16th, 2003, 09:05 AM
rofl.. ahmad.. u just chose the color for the BG! and u suck at zoe2! ill own u.. watch.. tomorrow. its over! pick ur damn anubis.. ill own u with jehuty:laff:

Mar 16th, 2003, 09:11 AM
i didnt just choose the backround i did the effect, i got the pic, cut it, all u did was the liquify right there......o ya and BRING IT!

Mar 16th, 2003, 09:38 AM
fool! lies! all LIES! ill bring all right..UHH!! get off me!!:laff:

Mar 16th, 2003, 09:32 PM
they are to plain and they are not fun to look at. other then that good job

Mar 17th, 2003, 12:14 AM
u got decent at makin sigs real fast, took me like a year to get as good as i am now and im still not that great :(

most of ur sigs are decent, and not to crouded, simple is good. But try to stay away from using tutorials to much, invent ur own stuff.


Mar 17th, 2003, 01:54 AM
ive never used a tutorial.. well.. i read one once.. but i never used it.. didnt like it.:S

but thanks.. ill have some new ones soon. just been busy playing natural selection, zoe2 and esf:cool:

well heres another one i made for groovy..


Mar 17th, 2003, 03:17 AM

Polytech has taken over my social life lately and my server went bung :S I got my sigs up and saw your message and thought 'id love 2 comment' :)

Good job dude Really well done!

Have a go at larger sigs! I did all my first ones larger cause i was told a great tip ;) If u use biger sigs at the start u learn 2 use higher quality pics and have a better sence of layout then u make them smaler and thay look ausom! If ya want give it a go :D

Althow i dont think u really need it cause yours r better than most of my ones :P

ill hopfully be able 2 make sigs again soon but for now.......... Work for poly DAMIT!!

Mar 17th, 2003, 03:20 AM
thank u very much hawki:) ill keep that in-mind

im working on this weird thingy im working on.. lol:laff:
heres the thingy i was working on..:p


Mar 17th, 2003, 07:30 AM
hmm, it has potential, but try to stay away from lens flares, I dont think it makes it look better in this pic. Try to work a bit more on it, it looks a little empty now

grtz Naz

Mar 17th, 2003, 11:46 PM
WOW really niceO_O btw how did u do those box type things in some of ur backrounds??? *huge photoshop noob*

Mar 17th, 2003, 11:47 PM
Filter > stylize > extrude.. no biggy.:S

I was the one who taught this noob.:p

Mar 18th, 2003, 02:03 AM
u taught no one!;(

i taught myself.. cuz im crazy like that:rolleyes:

ill have more work soon.. but it will be easier if(if u guys want to) request what i should make next:)

Mar 18th, 2003, 02:19 AM

LOL really? I've seen the exploding squares alot, thats a tutorial, also the "circuits" on in the background of your anubis sig, is a tutorial. Don't use tutorials? I can go get the links to show you use tutorials lol..

Sorry I just had to point that out...its too obvious. :devgrin:

Mar 18th, 2003, 05:40 AM
u gotta be kidding me..:\

all u have to do is go to.. filters > stylize > extrude and bam.. u have ur squares:S

the anubis is a smoke effect with a little luquify... not tutorials, unless there was one on making 3d in photoshop7:rolleyes:

Mar 18th, 2003, 07:49 PM
sorry for the double post.. but its been a day and.. i need to attract some attention:rolleyes:

here yah go.. a little something when i was bored.. made on my b-day *cough*today*cough*:p


Mar 18th, 2003, 09:11 PM
*cough* Happy birth day *cough* lol well nice i suppose but im not much into that swirl blur stuff... more into jagged edged stuff and things more solid...looks good though :D
