Cool :) confetti right?

Sage
01-04-2009, 06:43 PM
It's not a filter or anything, it's actually just a brush that I fooled around with.

Boomy
01-04-2009, 06:44 PM
Yeh I meant the confetti brush ^^, it's awesome :p

It's cool, better than my current iron maiden sig draft, not even sure whether i should bother posting it here...

Sage

Oh. Yeah I just used Clouds for the backround and a supernova in the corner.

Boomy
01-04-2009, 06:46 PM
Difference clouds are great to use :)

Sage
01-04-2009, 07:09 PM
Okay i'm about to post my second one. IMO it's much better. :)

Here it is!

What filter is that, mosaic? It looks awesome :), try the artistic filters like cubism, they rule. :)

Sage
01-04-2009, 07:13 PM
Yep it's mosaic. And some other clothing filter that made it more grainy.

Yarbone
01-04-2009, 07:19 PM
I kinda like mosaic but I always transform the pic after i used a filter so you can't recognize them easily.

Boomy
01-04-2009, 07:24 PM
Transform them?

Sage
01-04-2009, 07:24 PM
I try to do that but it doesn't work out as planned (it works out somehow better :p)

Oh and 3rd one coming up. After this i'm gonna take a break.

Here it is:

Hm, I really like some of 'em, great job. :x

Maybe I should get back into this kind of stuff, although I always seem to lack inspiration. :(

Sage
01-04-2009, 07:44 PM
I like the third one best. I'm gonna take a break for a bit. I hope you guys come up with some cool ones too.

Boomy
01-04-2009, 07:46 PM
I like the third one best.

I agree :)

Try using more than one filter.

Sage

Yeah. I know, i'm gonna try that next time.

Was that supposed to say "thread"? :p

No because other people have their own threads, so why not us..

Yarbone

Ok but basically we're discussing the same thing in multiple threads :(

Power to the people! :arg:

Boomy

We are discussing certain peoples artworks in seperate threads..seems fair?

TheArmedReaper

Exactly my point...

Creative
01-04-2009, 08:11 PM
No, not really. People who make sigs want to hear feedback about their sigs, not go through a bunch to find it. You guys aren't thinking straight - you two even have your own signature threads.

YEAH.

Sage
01-04-2009, 09:06 PM
NEW ONE!

HOW!?!? Thats awesome! :o

Sage
01-04-2009, 09:09 PM
Heh... I knew someone would ask that. And i'm sorry to say I have no idea >_< Just alot of clicking and experimenting until I liked the product. :)

Nice stuff, but I think you should start working with renders. http://www.planetrender.net/ has some good renders. :arg:

Sage
01-04-2009, 09:13 PM
Umm... I think there's something wrong with the link.

I blurred this one too much :(

Boomy
01-05-2009, 05:44 PM
That is quite cool however I think your right with the blurring ^^ You seem to like the confetti brush ^^

Sage
01-05-2009, 06:26 PM
That actually was not confetti it was ;

Render Lava > Red Border > Cubism > Major Blur

Boomy
01-05-2009, 07:06 PM
Oh ok, cool :o

Sage
01-05-2009, 07:35 PM
My first experience with renders coming up, I have two versions.

Boomy

Bump on request :)

Boomy

Ok the background to the first one is really cool and you must tell me how you did it (now :)), but I'm not sure on the filter on the render itself :o I think you should have left it how it was, like on the second sig, which is very cool ^^

Sage
01-05-2009, 07:50 PM
For that backround I did some fooling around in the render settings until I found this.

Boomy
01-05-2009, 07:52 PM
Dang you :o

Also a tip to help with renders, you know you get those annoying white bits around the outside, either zoom in and deal with them, or blur round the edges, clears them right up :)

Sage
01-05-2009, 07:53 PM
Okay thanks. That's why I blurred the entire first image so the white border was unrecognizable.

Boomy

I dont like what you did with the render on the 1st one, but the second one is nice.

Bump my GIMP thread please.
