the text is a little shaky, id bring nathan out a little and the right side is very sloppy like you said, but again, still an improvement.

from my knowledge, a tutorial is basically just a different way for you to think and different methods to use. when you reach a certain level where the basics are met (which i think you've reached), you can think and use things your own way and dont necessarily need to follow a tutorial step by step.

Nathan- I agree with Snakes you need to make him "pop" more. Not really sure what you have going on the right side? Other than that its not too bad. I will also agree with Snakes on the point of learning/trying things on your own. I never used a tutorial. I just had guys around here lead me in the right direction and I took it from there. Just about everytime I make a sig I learn a little something new.

AP- That one is blurry and hard to see. I can see where you were trying to go with it though. Just a little dark for my liking. The more layers the blurrier it comes out, so try to use very little.

Jackson- Very nice. I agree with Snakes that its your best yet. The player "pops" and the backgound/ text are simple and go nicely with the sig. Nice work. ;-D

First of all I am not trying to sound like a jerk, but I am going to be honest abrage...that one just dont do it for me. I like the idea of it. It just doesnt go together that great. The background seems too bright/ plain and I am not sure what that red around Ortiz is supposed to be? Again not trying be a jerk but I also think the cut could be a lot better.

Here is what I would suggest (if you want my suggestion). ;-) First clean up the cut of Ortiz. The bat is very jagged and around the visor could use some touching up. Next the background. Use the same pic, but this time add some different brushing, blending and lighting to it. Last I would take that red shadow or whatever it is behind Ortiz out. If the background was darker that red shadow may work, but since its a very bright background the red really stands out. Again I am VERY sorry if I am sounding like a jerk. Trust me I am no expert myself. I am always learning/ trying new things and I know you are always trying to get better yourself, which is why I am offering my thoughts and ideas. Take them and use them or just ignore them. Either way I wont be offended. Btw I like your Loney one. Its simple, looks good and is clean. Nice job. ;-D
