The Splendid Splinter and Mr. October

Postby The_Show » Sun Nov 16, 2008 3:59 pm

I've always wanted to try making a sig of a HoF player. With a lack of good pictures and of color, It's definitely a lot harder than a current day player. At first I tried Honus Wagner, but it proved too hard (maybe I'll try it again someday though). So I decided on Ted Williams and Reggie Jackson. Jackson wasn't too bad since it was only the '70s-'80s. Williams proved to be harder since quality/quantity/size of pictures were lower. The size of Williams on the right is way too small for my liking, but I really liked the picture (http://keitholbermannisevil.files.wordp ... -plate.jpg).

I really like the Reggie sig, though the main render is a bit blurry, especially the face. Did you realize that you spelled Teddy Ballgame's last name wrong? :*) I can see how that sig would be tough. You did a great job with his jersey. ;-D

Maybe shrinking the canvas in width would help. Instead of 400 px maybe try it at 350-360? I think that the render on the far right would look better if it were closer to the larger faded render. Shrinking the canvas could allow you to move it closer and cut down on some empty space. Just a thought. Both of these came out pretty nice, good job.
