Royals Sig Tutorial

Postby smoovethug » Sun Mar 02, 2008 10:14 am

Remember that sexy Royals sig I made? Well here's my first tutorial. Hope it's easy to follow and helps some. Any questions post them here, PM me or whatever. I'd like to see some results from this so try it out if you get a chance. :-)

Disclaimer: This is just my technique. You do NOT have to follow this strictly. Play around with some settings to get things the way YOU like them. Have fun. ;-D

Again you don't have to use these exact stocks. Search for some that YOU like and that fit YOUR style. These are just to give you a basic idea of what you can do. And before you ask, I get my stocks from a lot of places:

nice work smooth, a lot of good techniques are covered in there...learning about gradients and using a bunch of different stocks in the background is what took me to the next level...i'm definitely gonna use that text technique in the future

It actually wasn't too bad. Took about an hour because I started off taking screenshots and the pics wouldn't load in photoshop. :*) Hard part was determining the dimensions. I had no idea how high i needed the document to be.

Thanks for the comments guys. ;-D
