Thanked 1 Time in 1 Post
In depth For n00bs
First things first. Font.
Font- Advice: Make it simple, pleasent, nice. Not "Oh its linkin park font!" No, thats just..no. I tryed it, it never works with about 100% of the sigs (that dont suck) iv seen. Stick with something like Arial, or Century Gothic. Something Clean and simple, you can always use effects on it.
But if you rather not heed my advice, or you doing a graphic arts project that isnt a sig here is a link for moar fonts; http://www.typenow.net/themed.htm (Thanks Gigbig)
Background: Dont make it boring, plain and/or dull. Smudge, blur, spatter, etc. Make it as busy as you want, just make sure there is flow and its not graphical vommit.
Stock: Not to big, not to small. Some sigs require a stock with no action going on, some with alot, and some that rest in the middle. You want to find a clean cut render...'cause it makes your life easier.
Types of stocks: Render-Image with no background
stock- Image with the background
Where to get them:http://rendergfx.ipbfree.com/
Gfx: Graphics. Aka what your doing atm
aka:Also known as
Atm: At the moment
lol im jk: Lol im just kidding
Brushes: Uhm....well they're what you use to erase, smuge, or paint...with. The type of brush determens the shape of the smudge, erase mark, etc.
Where to get them: Deviantart.com
Search: blah blah photoshop cs(what ever you have) brushes. (ex: Fire photoshop cs2 brushes)
Sig: See Signiture
Signiture: What your making. The dementions can be as small as very small and as big as holy fucking hell thats big. Sig sizes I recamend: 400x100, 350x100,300x100.
Scanlines: Unfortunaly at this moment in time I can not find a tutorial on scan lines. But, scan lines are thin black (or another color) lines that are Used in the background or on the stock. Ill upload an example later.
Background-The back most area of the sig. Example: The black of my captin america sig
Bg: An abreviation of Background.
Border: The design, shape, line, etc. that goes around the border. A way to do this is:
when your finished with your sig go to
Image ( its on the left hand side, at the top)
Click on it
Go down to "Apply Image"
Then go to edit
Go all the way down to "stroke"
Have those settings
Cnc: Not sure exactly what it means. But when you see this make sure you do what is stated in this V link
