New fonts are a BIG neccessity. Try to set themes, and not cram random character pics in. Try setting a young Gohan theme or a SSJ Teen Gohan theme ect. And your bg's need mucho's work.

You should use less pictures, they're kind of cluttering up the sig o_O

Loki
Mar 10th, 2003, 11:16 PM
You're useing Fireworks your numuro uno one problem.

Saiyaman156
Mar 10th, 2003, 11:43 PM
cool, thanks for the critiques, what do you mean by fireworks?

i use photoshop 7 and i am new to it, how do i get the cool textures like what orion has? and how do you blend the picture into the background?

Loki
Mar 11th, 2003, 12:02 AM
You use Photoshop O_o all those BG's I can make in 10 seconds in Fireworks, you really need to get some skillz. Im not one to brag but *jaw drops*

Saiyaman156
Mar 11th, 2003, 12:14 AM
geez, your so kind, considering i got this yesterday i don't think they are bad

@ [email protected], leave him alone, and answer his question

@[email protected] those r good 4 a first(i shouldnt be takin lol) but maybe i would blend some in, take the crop tool, right click on the layer(dont merge them until the sig is done btw) and choose blending options

the 2 bars in the bottom middle are fun to fool around with. the first makes the pic more transparent, the second one affects how much the background 'overpowers' the sig

Loki
Mar 11th, 2003, 01:37 AM
Well Im sorry but he was asking for critique and Did he state BEFOREHAND that he just got it? I just gave my opinion :rolleyes:

GotenksOwnz
Mar 11th, 2003, 08:37 PM
Well for a first sig very nice but simple so try mixing with backrounds and pic's. Also change the layers mode for overlaying the pic with bg. :D

Saiyaman156
Mar 12th, 2003, 01:33 AM
i made this one, it is a bit more simple with some effects that i recently learned from a website that uselessresponse recommended to me

http://webpages.charter.net/gsmith2001/Tests/SSJ_Gohan.jpg

Spiritfire
Mar 12th, 2003, 09:19 PM
i like the new one you did, but the gohan looks like guhan, i think you put too much wind on it, pic quality could be a lil better, try zooming and using the smudge tool if you havent already

Saiyaman156
Mar 12th, 2003, 11:38 PM
for some reason i din't notice that Gohan looked like Guhan . . .

i am working on another of either gohan or goten, haven't decided yet, but i am gonna use this cool affect that uselessresponse taught me

Spiritfire
Mar 12th, 2003, 11:43 PM
then my confusing tutorial was readable enough? YAY

btw clean out your PMs, i filled it, and in imageready there is a SAVE AS OPTIMIZED option near the save option on the file tab

Saiyaman156
Mar 13th, 2003, 12:33 AM
Finished a new one:

Spiritfire
Mar 13th, 2003, 12:34 AM
now i can, make the transistion smoother between the text, you have the transistion speed too low for all but the ones on son gohan, and it looks strange and too fast, that or you used too few frames on that one

it should look like this or with my tutorial this is what i got
http://image1ex.villagephotos.com/1823758.jpg

now you need to work on your backround skills, and that picture could be better

Saiyaman156
Mar 13th, 2003, 08:00 PM
thanks for that, i decided to make some of my own changes, if you look at the one above you will notice it is just a bit different then before

GotenksOwnz
Mar 13th, 2003, 08:14 PM
There nice and all but the sig its self is to plain make a backround then add animation to it :)

Saiyaman156
Mar 13th, 2003, 08:16 PM
i have trouble with backgrounds . . . it usually ends up worse with one

GotenksOwnz
Mar 13th, 2003, 08:19 PM
I could help you if you want as long as you have photoshop if so pm me k :)

GreenBerets
Mar 13th, 2003, 09:16 PM
uselessresponse can i be your padawan too? what tutorial?

Spiritfire
Mar 13th, 2003, 10:56 PM
good job with the animation, but yes backrounds are key and your lacking them

Fury-he might have kept the tutorial i wrote him, pm him for it
and sure now i got 2 padawans lol, but what do you have to learn from me? youve been at it for a while havent you?

Saiyaman156
Mar 14th, 2003, 09:29 PM
thanks for the compliment, i have gotton good at animations

i sent that tutorial to Primal

MEGGEDO
Mar 14th, 2003, 10:02 PM
WAYYYYYY to basic. use better text effects.

Saiyaman156
Mar 15th, 2003, 01:19 AM
i realize that it is basic, it was the first time that i had ever used ImageReady so i didn't want to accidentaly screw up, besides, sometimes the basic things in life are what you love the most

nice wording bro:] and i got the tutorials thanks

Saiyaman156
Mar 16th, 2003, 11:08 PM
made this new one, tell me what y'all think

http://webpages.charter.net/gsmith2001/Tests/Majin_Buu.gif

Naz
Mar 17th, 2003, 07:01 AM
well... I liked it with a black bg better.. do't like this bg, and the cutouts on the buus isn't too good on some, the idea is kinda unique though... but I don't really like it as a sig

grtz Naz

Saiyaman156
Mar 17th, 2003, 01:45 PM
everyone says different things about the backgrounds, they say the black is to simple and then the fancy thing isn't good enough, i don't ike it as a sig but it would prob be good as a banner

MasterTrix
Mar 17th, 2003, 03:38 PM
If you say this, there's probably 80% chance you're gonna abuse it!

Saiyaman156
Mar 18th, 2003, 01:42 AM
i am not quite sure what you mean . . . abuse what?

did this new one today . . .

http://webpages.charter.net/gsmith2001/Tests/Goten.jpg

i fully realize the bg is a bit O_o
but you know . . .

Spiritfire
Mar 19th, 2003, 02:35 AM
i think he means the animations,
the new one, its ok, but you need to move away from the outer glow, because it seems like your trying to cover up bad cutting or somthing with it, or your using it too much,just me, add more pics and its ok
font and color of the type need work aswell

Vegito1180
Mar 19th, 2003, 02:44 AM
Ha you know my sigs were just like yours.Good job for a begginer (Oh and for all of you are saying that its to simple and you dint make a sig yourself you shouldn’t talk so shut up)

Saiyaman156
Mar 19th, 2003, 07:33 PM
thanks for the compliment, i did the glow on this one because someone wanted it on my forums page, i usually do a good job cutting

i am gonna dl some new fonts later this week

Saiyaman156
Apr 5th, 2003, 06:43 PM
sorry for the double post, had to move the topic up

made a new one that i have entered into the sig competition

http://webpages.charter.net/gsmith2001/Tests/SSJ4_Goku.jpg

MasterTrix
Apr 5th, 2003, 08:55 PM
would be great if u change the text, i dont know, your name or something.

Saiyaman156
Apr 5th, 2003, 09:11 PM
i don't know . . . it is of SSJ4 Goku . . . i will wait for more feedback, but i may end up doing it

Death The Jedi
Apr 6th, 2003, 02:57 AM
lol, the buu sig switches in perfect tune with the song "What's My Age Again"

Saiyaman156
Apr 6th, 2003, 06:01 PM
ok, i have never heard the song, and the line up with the tune was unintentional

edit:
changed the font on the sig, decided to keep the text

GotenksOwnz
Apr 6th, 2003, 06:27 PM
Your bg's are to simple try adding something like more layers with brushes and wat not and see wat you get :D

Lance
Apr 6th, 2003, 09:53 PM
i always just start with whatever color bg i want, take a brush, put my initials(DV) in a diff color then dupe the layer put effects on both blend them and do random effects

stop looking at me like that! it works!

Galst Vic
Apr 7th, 2003, 05:44 AM
I like how you cut the pics very perfect cuts.I like the SSJ4 Goku I like that thing of "Do you think im pisst off?" well I do think he is pisst of very nice good job,just work on your backgrounds.

Saiyaman156
Apr 8th, 2003, 09:40 PM
to tell you the truth, i din't do a good job cutting, i am just good at covering things up, and i am satisfied with my bg, could be better though

Spiritfire
Apr 8th, 2003, 10:11 PM
show them you confucian belifs thing!

No.... Its the BEST by FAR.... What did you use to make that ? :fight: Flash? :p... I can make a better one... :devgrin:.... but now I got my crappy computer reformated... :cry: No more Flash ...

Saiyaman156
Apr 16th, 2003, 07:52 PM
made a new one, crits please

http://webpages.charter.net/gsmith2001/Tests/Majin_Vegeta.jpg

Spiritfire
Apr 16th, 2003, 08:13 PM
your backroungs are getting better, but i still see that funky looking clouds thing you did on your first sig, thats a good font though 8/10

mr. roshi
Apr 16th, 2003, 08:20 PM
on a more realistic note....2/10

all the elements of the sig dont blend at all.

-vegeta...fine
-Bg...rainbow looking....it doesnt work witht the image
-typography. decent placement but i mean the font is good but UG its so plainly placed and no effort made to blend it with the BG (and that doesnt mean using diff blend modes neccesarily)

Spiritfire
Apr 16th, 2003, 08:26 PM
be nice roshi hes still new to it

Saiyaman156
Apr 16th, 2003, 09:10 PM
i actually didn't use any clouds

VegetaBlaZe
Apr 16th, 2003, 09:26 PM
roshis not tryin to mean he gave good comments and critisiscm(too lazy to check spelling)

well, personally I don't like the solarize effect you used. It makes it look kinda boxy. Maybe if you would have done a few effects to make it look more triangular or somethin, but it looks boxy.

Saiyaman156
Apr 16th, 2003, 09:35 PM
i am not offended in any way, crits make it easyier for the next pic to be better

look where i started and look where i am now, that is from people like roshi who give some hardcore crits

edit:
don't think i used solarize, i did it late at night on a caffeine high, *yeah, caffeine . . .*, so i don't really remember much, maybe i did

Saiyaman156
Apr 18th, 2003, 03:09 PM
sorry for the double post, had to move it up again

made this for some kid that wanted a sig, he didn't give me specs, so i did it on a whim

Lone Wolf
Apr 18th, 2003, 03:50 PM
:yes::yes: I just dont like the red font.

energy saiyan
Apr 18th, 2003, 08:51 PM
Cool made sig dude!!!!
good work!!! :D:D:D

Saiyaman156
Apr 19th, 2003, 04:45 PM
i worked a little harder on that one because someone hired me

Lone Wolf
Apr 19th, 2003, 04:51 PM
Did you get piad?!?!?! :D:D jk.
I still dont like the red font >.<;;
But then again.... I dont think any other colour would fit on right...

Saiyaman156
Apr 19th, 2003, 05:37 PM
i wish i got paid, i couldn't get a color that fit well either

Saiyaman156
Apr 29th, 2003, 02:38 AM
if anyone wants any of the sigs i have made, ask me for them and they will be yours, i can replace any text or whatever

i haven't made any new sigs recently because i have been on vacation, and am waiting to get 3dsm

GotenksOwnz
Apr 29th, 2003, 03:35 AM
Are you buying 3ds max also 3ds max wont get u a good sig u still need photoshop skill's for the bg and color.

Spiritfire
Apr 29th, 2003, 10:57 AM
hes right and 3dsmax can be extremly tough to work with, it can take a very long time to get the render you want

Saiyaman156
Apr 29th, 2003, 07:34 PM
i am pretty good at photoshop, and i am getting 3dsm from a friend

Spiritfire
Apr 30th, 2003, 10:27 PM
ok i want you to make somthing demonstrating all your photoshop skill :P
I would really like to seee somthing new fom you actually, i want to see if your bacrounds have gotten any better
I could even give you a few renders if you need them so that you can see how you do with working with a render
PM me if you have any questions as well

Saiyaman156
May 1st, 2003, 07:44 PM
ya sure, i think you know how to get a hold of me . . .

i am working on a sig for someone who pmed me about it

i haven't been able to make any personal ones because of a massive amount of school-work

Ryoko

Saiyaman156
May 3rd, 2003, 12:51 AM
made this new one for black raiden, uselessresponse rendered the red bg for me

this is a beta of the sig, there will be quite a few more additions when i have more time / feel like it

http://webpages.charter.net/gsmith2001/Tests/black_raiden.gif

edit:
made a few changes for the person who wanted it, i added the pic change, and some other small details

edit2:
cancel the pic change, the change wasn't very smooth

Spiritfire
May 3rd, 2003, 03:20 AM
i already told you what i think through pm, just work on the backround a little more

Saiyaman156
May 3rd, 2003, 06:38 PM

Saiyaman156
May 19th, 2003, 10:38 PM

im with uslessresponse, the right picture is horrible :p

GotenksOwnz
May 20th, 2003, 01:55 PM
Those sig's arent very nice the bg is simple and the sig its self is abit bigg. The render could be better but i no useless has only just got 3ds max so it takes time to make a good render.

Saiyaman156
May 20th, 2003, 06:51 PM
he put that render together in like 5 minutes i think

Spiritfire
May 20th, 2003, 08:13 PM
yes i made it in only a few minutes, it took the full size when i first made it but load it in photoshop and half of its clear

Lone Wolf
May 20th, 2003, 08:38 PM
