    I made this signature yesterday. What do you guys think? I played about alot with the render and what I ended up with I thought looked cool. But I think I went a little over board with the outer glow around the render.

    Here it is:

    Thanks! Lol, I timed myself. It took me just above 16 mins. I hate picking a signature to use. I think the one I have now will be there for a long time though

    Very impressive for less than 20mins of work!

    Every time I see some graphics you have done it makes me think I should learn some more about Photoshop.

    Marcus does have a bit too much glow, overall it’s a great bit of work though.

    Thanks alot!

    I would of taken down the outer glow a bit but then I would of had to do all the render again because I merged all the layers together and I could not be bothered to :P

    haha ah wells, that's something I've learnt, never merge layers unless you're sure your happy with them!!

    I only ever really merge layers like shapes which i want as one, never really renders and effects etc.

    But anyways, as I said before, good work man!

    Nice, but could be improved try blending in the render, I know you haven't but it just looks like you have took to images and put them together

    Here is one of mine:

    Use a smudge tool or something and blend in in a certain way so it gives flow, I'll do a tutorial for this site soon

    @ Mods, Admins:

    Should we not have a graphics/ sigs thread where all these can be posted, rather than having seperate threads for each one? That way they are all in one place and aren't clogging up the forums.

    @DyNaMiiXx:

    Good work man, only thing I'm not too keen on is the face, but that's just my personal opinion. I love the background though! :)

    Yea it might be a good idea to have a Graphics forum with an sub forum inside for tutorials for graphics or somthing.

    I like what he has done with the face it looks realy good and fits in well.

    At the moment I’ve merged the two threads together and renamed it to the official graphics thread.

    As Digiex grows the plan is to add more sub forms such as one in the Digital Media Centre for graphics and another for music and TV shows. As you can see the Media Centre doesn’t exactly have a lot of posts compared to other sections at the moment.
