    Red face My First Anime Siggy!

    I decided to take my GFX to the next level and make something epic with anime. I have never really made a siggy with and Anime picture before so there was a HUGE learning curve I had to assess. All in all however, I think it looks good and is by far one of my best.

    Since it isn't a maple sig i can finally get serious, okay. Just let me borrow your piece for a second and i'll point out some things.
    Okay stuff it never mind.
    What i have to say is, the text is okay.
    The render and background isn't very good, there's no flow to the piece and depth. Leaving it plain as ever, right next to the head of the render on the right the pixels there is LQ and the border is annoying.
    For the border you should just do a outline of a black or white in 2 - 4 px.
    If you want to continue with the text you'll have to work on it.
    Next time try and go for -
    Smaller size (So you can work on filling things in.) Like 400x200 or 400 x 170
    Background stocks (Look for a pack on that on DeviantArt) which you can use.
    A better render, so it can have a set flow and you can work off of that.
    Better effects.
    Try out photoshop.
    For the text, don't try and do outer glow. It doesn't work you need to find something that blends it in to the signature itself.
    i'll give you some tips on that if you have photoshop.
    Add me on skype Caitlinyuukisnow

    I can make this longer but it'll become a wall post and you probably won't read it anyways.

    Hmmm, this is a lot of stuff to account for, I don't have Photoshop, I just use GIMP 2 so it won't be as good as photoshop. I see what your saying about the border, as i look back, it is kind of annoying and doesn't... just doesn't seem right. While I was making I was going for that kind of eroded, epic look and I guess it looked better while I was making, just didn't come out as I thought it was. I am also fairly young being only 13 I have a tendensy to goof around a lot, sometimes messing around with my SiG and having it not look as great as I could've.

    I would get photoshop if it didn't cost money.

    I've looked for leaked versions of Photoshop but have no luck, I may try again in a little bit, what version of Photoshop do you use?
