Nice new fresh one:)

Bonus imaginary points for any "old school" themed sigs and avys.

Go for it, and as always, be respectful of everyone:)

Donkey Kong Country sig

New Super mario Bros Wii sig using old pics of Mario characters.

That old-school enough for you? Most old-school sigs I could dig up. >.>

Rate my current sig/avay combination. It's not really "old school" but it's still old.

I have absolutely no photoshop/gimp/paint talent whatsoever so I'm forced to take pictures from photobucket that are in the shape of a sig! :cry:

Unless the Garfield Sig I got counts as old school....

@Kamikaze I like it. Nice flow, perfect excution of effects. And text is good. I would just say take out the lines on the left as they arent really adding to much. And maybe smoothen out around the background. As with most of your work ive seen, its simple awesome.

First one is pretty good. Lacking in color, looks generally dull because of it. Nice smudging though, if it is smudging :P The other one I do not like. The effect surrounding the sprite good everything else....not so much.

[QUOTE="Bobakuzero"]So just cause Pigmy inspired me..  Your typical every day run of the mill K' sprite sig. And brace yourself for epicness..  v1  v2 Thoughts?

First one has some really nice smudging, you'll have to tell me what brush settings you used ;) Other than that, it is a bit lacking in effects and depth. Maybe add some fractals around the fist area, a lightning brush up his arm with an outer glow, or some C4Ds set to screen just inching out around the render. Add a couple of gradient maps for depth, too. Typical ones I use are purple>orange on lighten at around 30-40% opacity, black-white lighten ~20% opacity and maybe a few photofilters for good measure. Of the second one, V2 looks better (looks like a purple>orange gradient map on the go?), but I think the flow could be improved. Add some of spikey background render on the left of the render to the right side, going up and right. You dont want these to dominate the sig, just balance it out a little. I'd also start to fade the spikes towards the top left (even more so than you have), so the eye is more drawn to the focal. I'd also add a couple of particle effect C4Ds and a light source under the render, as if the light is projecting up onto him. Like so:

What program do you use? I like the first one by the way, the second one seems a little bland on colour. The first one should have less black on the right because it makes it look too unsymmetrical. Change those two things and you'll have a 10/10 sig in my opinion.

@Kamizaze Smudging on the first was simply default set to spark brush I think. I'll make the suggested adgustments, but what good particle effects would you suggest for the second? @RobboElRobbo I use Gimp. Thanks for comments and tips guys. I'll try to have some updated results up soon. :)

Ah, I use photoshop so I don't have those. Still that smudging looks really, really good. :)

As for particle effects, try looking at C4Ds and fractals on Planet Renders (don't know if you've used it before?). Look for ones with little intricacies, such as glowing orbs of light, that will fit well with your work. You'll be wanting to set them on whatever the gimp equivalents are to Linear Dodge or Colour Dodge (occasionally Lighten) and adjusting the hue. You'll probably have to resize them or rotate them and mask anything out you don't want to see.
