In addition. Here's my latest one. Could you guys point me to a tutorial on text because I need a lot of help on that. I think I did better on this one. It was supposed to have a NYY logo in the BG but it got blurred in with the BG of the city (Empire State Building).

P.S. Yes I know I'm a Red Sox fan and although I do dislike A-Rod for what he did against V-Tek in 2004 and in the 2004 ALCS GM6 against Bronso Arroyo, he is still in my mind a great player.

Just look at good sigs to learn good techniques. Here are some that you could try and learn from.

I really think you should try to start off working with smaller sigs. 400x100 is best. If you r just starting, that size sig is hard to fill in with stuff. Also, use duplicate layers on the player and play arouns with the blending options. Also I think you should start playing with different lighting too. Yeah and try the stuff i told you about text.

Okay. I'll try 400x100 px (when I get home from community service or later today); also, aren't those FBC's requirements cuz I can't put any of my sigs in my profile.

Btw, what would you guys rate (out of 10, 10 the best) for the A-Rod sig? Here's the image again.

I still, to this day, have not been able to find one good reason to use noise, and i hate when i see it in other sigs.


ME EITHER! :-[

Updated A-Rod sig.

I can't seem to use this because it says the signature size is too big. Would I have to trim the resolution or something?

its kinda grainy. there are texts that have the grungy look but it fits and is intended. on this its just grainy. And the grainy look doesnt fit with this particular sig. For this one i would probably use just impact to make it look clean cut. Go with the different colors, but try adding some line with the text.and move the yankees/3b part up. But yeah try using impact with the sam sizes. use a drop shadow, and maybe an outer glow might look nice. For this one you just need text that is clear and crisp ;-D
