    I can't believe you improved that quickly. but on the off chance that you did, it's quite incredible.

    edit: actually i know it's not yours - nobody's taste and eye for composition can improve that quickly.

    I am not 100% sure of what involve this sig, nor what technique you used (metal plate texture made from scratch?) but that face needs a light up, looks like the middle is a blended circle layer that use a random 'satin' effect over her face. It's not really clean.

    EDIT: I am doubt-y about "i made this sig!!!!1 loak!!" But nice job if you did, now you might want to make yourself a new avatar then.

    it's not even that great when you look at it...the wires make my eyes hurt (the fact that they go in and out of the holes without appearing to curve, the crappy lighting on them, and that horrid drop shadow which in no way represents a real shadow - so the red fiery background is on the same vertical level as the metal plate?) and that shiny metal thing around the face clashes pretty badly with the rough scratchy background - the lighting on it is not even correct when comparing it to the holes. the text is poorly done also, and the left part of the background looks rather crappy.

    he could have made it, especially given the sheer number of ps tutorials around these days - there are topics for everything, that planet he made up there was probably done verbatim from some retarded tutorial. unlikely that he made it, but whatev. I don't even find it attractive.

    um acutally iti s mine, its been a year since i was last on here, its my work i swear, i used a tutorials for this technique, heres the link http://www.pslover.com/click/6137 and dude, i swear to god this is all my work, everything i make is completely and totally mine without using textures, models, or renders of anyone leses work
    oh, and it says tek becuase i made it for another forum, the problem is, there is someone with the name heretic on that forum, so i coulodnt use that name, and my name on that forum is Kriminal, and that name wouldnt go with the signature, tech and kriminal dont mix, so i wrote tek on it. And also, it is a advanced tutorial which takes knowledge and skill with photoshop, you may say, theres no such thing as a hard tutorial, but then check this sh*t out and youll change your mind. And whatever pheonix, i know your just jealous cuase your work sucks and you wish u could improve and do well with photoshop like me :)

    These tutorial websites with people with like 500 sigs are hillarious. Especialy when they are admins, they just don't have any sig guidelines.

    heh, indeed. I'm happy with mine as it is for now if that's ok :p

    The tutorial from start to finish explains alot (composition & creativity), but well done for following it through well.

    Here's one for a different forum. I keep away from filters, and just try to make the basic design elements strong enough to stand on their own. It's not necessarily better or worse than anyone elses methods, it's just the one I prefer.

    So...how's stuff on the home front? :O
