Vegeta_Rules' Signature Workshop.

Hello people, I know I haven't been here for long, but I am
pretty darn good at making sigs if you ask me, I haven't made any Zelda sigs yet, only DBZ sigs but I'm willing to make different sigs for you guys.
If you want a sig, copy this form and fill it out:

Character and Render: Majin Vegeta. (Please provide a link for the pic you want.)
Background: White, Purple and Black.
Added effects: White Lightning.
Writing: Vegeta_Rules.
Writing Colour: Red.

Here it is!


Please give credit if you use a requested signature.
Thanks.
-Vegeta_Rules.

Nice render slapped on a BG with some out of place text, there. No, really.
The fact that the render had some lightning already in it is really the only thing that helps it blend. Otherwise, this sig has no depth, no flow, no...anything really. And the red text out there is just like...no.

I'd say flow is what you're most in need of here. You need the main focus to be whatever picture is there (like a character or whatever), and add effects/whatnot to make it so your eyes flow from the focal to the text.

But flow doesn't help the badly blended text.
Don't think that a color of text opposite of the BG on the color wheel looks good. Sometimes it might, but in most cases, no. So firstly, change the color. And secondly, spruce it up so the text doesn't look like it's just floating there. Something as small as changing the layer mode of the text to something like overlay, screen, or grain merge can help there. And once you've started getting more advanced, you can try making the effects that flow overlap the text or have the text be inside of the effect...whatever looks good.

And then depth. There are no shadows. It looks like everything is standing exactly beside each other to the point where it looks like everything is on a piece of paper. Now if a piece of paper was what you were going for, then great. But I'm going to assume you weren't, and tell you that even something like a drop shadow or a gaussian blur can help you with depth. Think of your focal being close to you. Then things behind it get blurred slightly the further back they go, and things that are in front of the focal get blurred even more the closer to you they get. EXPERIMENT.

So yeah...
I was generally critiquing one sig but I'm assuming that all your sigs are styled like that, so this can help all of them.

Re: Vegeta_Rules' Signature Workshop.

@ >:3: I'll try
@ Caleb: Thanks for the help but, that was my first sig, look at my Gohan sig down below, I was told on other Forums I got a lot better, also, I am very aware that writing is not my strong point, so please try not to request writing!
BTW: What do you mean not to make it like a piece of paper? Do you want me to make it 3D or something?

He means make it look 3D. What a lot of signature people want to achieve is to make it seem like the render is standing in a sort of space and is interacting with all the effects around it. Without much tweaking, a render looks like a sticker overlapping a background, and that's when you come in and try to make it seem like it's all part of one image.
I think you've got this. The Gohan sig you're wearing is already taking this approach and looks great. You'll improve a lot more when you start taking requests and make new signatures every now and then. You're pretty good at this, so keep at it.

Request writing? I definitely didn't say anything about that. ;P

With the 3D, it's like with what IGNIS said, unless you're going for a flat look. Like you should just try to find some of his sigs. He does everything from 3D to extremely flat, and it always looks good.

EDIT: OH, by writing you mean text, lol. k, well if I were to request I definitely would probably ask for no text anyways.

Re: Vegeta_Rules' Signature Workshop.

After this I'm done posting ^-^

This is ZU, where an individual member can't control whether or not someone posts in their threads. If someone wants to come in and critique your works in a forum like Graphics Design, or Writing, you can't really stop them, and you should accept their advice. Now, whether or not you choose to follow their advice is your choice completely.

And IGNIS is this forum's moderator so he can post wherever he wants.

So yeah, you're welcome, have fun sig-ing ;P

You should really take what Caleb said into consideration when making your next sig. Seriously.

Re: Vegeta_Rules' Signature Workshop.

Ah! This is so out of date! I am a million times better than this! I've been learning from the best and I slowly worked my way up to GFX Designer! (On www.capsulecorpforums.co.cc ) It seems nobody is going to request anything, so please close this topic.
