Thank you.

Anyways, I'm taking requests if anyone wants me to try to make a sig for them.


Also... if the pros (Surge, Han, etc.) could give further tips/comments, I would be grateful.

Aw, you make me feel so good. :P My tip would be smoother transithions, and less outer glow. Also, try cutting the planet out a little better. :wink:

Any suggestions on how to do smooth transitions?

Or better phrased:

How do I do smoother transitions when I have two images next to each other? Is it in one of the functions in the toolbar to the left in photoshop? (basically, don't have much practice in this field... so perhaps step by step instructions would be better, lol)

As for smooth transitions, here is what I do:

When I have the two images fit in place side by side, I make sure one of them is overlapping the other just a bit. I then go to the eraser tool and make it a large round brush with the feathered edge(70-100 px would be the ideal size depending on the area) with the opacity set very low. Then using the very edge of the brush, I go along the top image and erase the very edge. Keep doing this until you get a nice, smooth transition.

Here is a sample of my work in which I used that method extensively:



If that was confusing to follow, I can get images for you. Just let me know. :)[

... *runs away in shame*

Thanks for the pointers! I'll try my best to attempt it tomorrow... and hopefully it can look at least 30% as good as the example you posted.

Ok, if possible, can I have some images? (lol, sorry)

Also, how do u get a large round brush with a feathered edge? (or rephrased: what's the feathered edge?)

Thanks in advance!


Surge: I got some delivery problem message from hotmail, will send ASAP again.

Can I get a signature for IG-120, if it's not too much of a hassle?

Items:
Avatar picture, far-right but blending in with the background instead of covering it up (Like Nevin's or Moff's).
A Mandalorian Dungeon Ship on the left side (Picture, but can you just trace the ship instead of placing the whole picture in?).
Taris in the background.

Sorry if this sounds complicated, I wouldn't know.

Its simple. Just save the file as a PNG/GIF with a blank background in photoshop. (GIF is more widespread, but PNG has smaller file size)

Glad to hear that! :P (thank you Han, for introducing me to the concept of using the blend erase thingy)

Two signatures I made for other people on another game:

Not bad, really. This is just my opinion, but some of the blends of cartoons and CGI and real people don't go tohgether (God I hate that word), along with some of the text. Besides that, I'm seeing some real improvment.

Thanks, well... the words and pictures to be included (generics) were the requests of others.

When I say text, I mean style, not words. Your Brotherhood of Darkness text is fine, but the style in the Jack one isn't as hot. As for the pictures, when you must you must, but I would try to avoid it.
