i've never used a gradient map before so maybe i'm doing it wrong but i'm basically just getting an orange tint to the entire sig which doesnt look as good as the original imo

also snakes, text is freaking hard

i really like this one but i think it would benefit it reyes had some color on him to make it pop out maybe something like a darken layer on top of that or a photo filter with an orangish tint but great job and maybe the text but i think its good for this and i know text is freaking ridiculous

oh i completely agree.

the reyes is a huge upgrade over everything. ;-D
sometimes the best way to do text is a very simple font, with clean looking text. some people try to overdo it and it looks bad, and then som people just think they can use any font and place the text anywhere they want. you dont do either, so i think you're on your way ;-D

Yeah the Reyes could use some color. Other than that it's fine. ;-D

ya, i tried the reyes sig with more color and while i like the look of both i like how reyes kinda blends into the background but still has that tint of color that the rest of the sig doesnt have, a bit more color probably does look better...just didnt want too much

Image

heres another one i did tonight for fun...text is definitely something i need to work on, does anyone know of any text tutorials?

start taking a few requests with your hard-earned skill and add yourself a pretty palette.
