    Smile Mikey's Amateur Hour

     
    So here we go... I'm coming off of a week vacation between jobs and I've been playing alot of DDFF due to the other half taking over the Xbox.
    There's been alot of boring moments for me, so I thought I'd whip up some graphics of my own. These are in no way even half as good as anyone else's and, in fact, I'm very much looking forward to recieving my requested stuff from Vamp.

    Anyway, on with the show: All these images were done with png images and a browser-based editor. I very much like constructive criticism and am going to start making avatars and banners for each character. I'm not too happy with some of the text colors, but, eh, what can I say? I'm a noob!

    And there you have it! Just thought I'd share the DDFF related stuff I've been making.

    It usually takes a bit before I really open up and share stuff like this. :P

    Your signatures look like banners to me. They look good but I would worki on using blending, burning and so on. Good stuff though. I like your avatars

    The signatures could use some work but those avatars look pretty cool. Keep improving. Ask Kit, Galadin, Vamper of Kayarine for help if you need it

    I feel as if there's too much text on these.

    You didn't use any tools to decorate the sig. It looks like you just slapped on a render to a background and called it a day. You should work on these. Like Blitz said you should ask galadin kayarine or the others for tips and advice

    Thanks to all for the criticism. Honestly, I agree with the siggies not being great at all. Those were, actually, the first few images I've made in years. Every time I use the editor, though, I'm finding out cool new stuff, so I'm definitely gonna be working on improving those, especially my main party "banner".

    I think you should also work on the text. Making it more fancy and add some effects to them. Just go look at other people's work and see the difference and what you could be using for yours.

    these are looking good, but these are missing what I call the three rules of graphics, these are

    1. Blending, the renders should look like they are part of the background not soo you can't see the render but the render and the background should look like one image

    2. Effects, these are the cool things you do with a GFX Work, like the sparkles that are in my estelle signature

    3. lighting, the light should be around the focus area (like the render) and the outer areas tend to look darker,

    my tip is to keep looking at tutorials that all I did and you will gather your own unique style overtime but keep up the work and look forward to seeing more from you
