Yeah I thought that the links to the other site might not be allower, so apologies for that. For some reason I couldn't find the forum rules! lol.
Anyway thanks for the comments. I am sure I will be becoming more active here when my exams are over.
Just so I know, if I do want to post the...
Hey folks. Been a while. I am getting back into GFX currently so just here posting some of my recent sigs ;) and also a video tutorial I made for another sig.
Video tutorial + resource pack available here: linked removed due to advertising
Video tutorial coming soon!
2 GMV. Quite simply it's the most pleasing on the eye.
3 is nice, although I dislike the colouring.
#1 omg it looks like a ncie background, but then in the middle someone has just vomited everywhere. Balthier is far too light in comparison with rest of sig.
#1 for the same reasons as Claymore really.
I normally liked fixed stock themes, but just didn't fancy any of these stocks. Next time perhaps include more variety...just cause the anime ones were similar, and the Kurt Cobain and 2 Matt Bellamy ones were also similar.
Takes me about an hour. Generally I stop-start though. I don;t bother trying to finish it in one go cuz it does my head in. That's not counting the 5-30 mins time taken to render the stock, if I need to.
That's what I thought. I was sure I'd seen a "modern" stings quartet before.
George was pretty good, but I don't think he's special. There's tons of teenagers who can freestyle just as well as him. The rain was a nice touch, he's probably watched Step Up 2 :P
Everyone else was pretty average...
#1 Render too transparent IMO, and wireframe was badly placed. Wireframes are great to create flow so maybe look at that again.
#2 Absolutely love the colour and lighting, but dislike the clipping masked face and neck.
#3 Really like the. Can't really critisize except maybe it doesn't have...
Just another note, for some particular C4Ds, they work well as lighting, You can make some really cool lighting effects with them.
They tend to be the C4Ds with some soft edges, and large plane surfaces.
If in doubt, make your own C4Ds. It really doesn't take very long to pick up at all.
Looking around various websites, I would say it's the opposite. Newbies usually use masses of brushes and c4ds, which end up being way overused and just plain messy, but then a lot of the more experienced GFXers use lots of stocks, patterns etc.
Visit sxc.hu for a lot of free stocks. You can...
I would quite like an LP competition. I wouldn't expect many entries though, since it's significantly more work than sigs.
Also, I would say LPs would be hard (decent ones anyway) for the relative beginners to make.
And then there's what classifies as "LP", size constraints...
Not keen on any of this weeks tbh.
#1 Kinda nice, but the embossed border is a massive no-no for me
#2 Emotive IMO, but I am biased since the stock chosen is one of my favourite scenes from one of my favourite movies (if you've seen it you'll know what I mean). Found it hard to work in B/W...
