Thumbs up My Sig

Liked your style of sigs, Ferous... so thought I'd make my own (I'm a photoshop enthusiast too). How do you all like it?

AFAIK Fer hasn't been around in a while

I like it, the colors are well chosen and the background is nice and vibrant without taking away from the model. The text stands out too.

All in all a great sig.

Question Technique

Hey Haylie,

After realizing that you've taken over on the sigs, I went back and started looking them over. Some of them I really like! Especially the last 2 (they seemed to get better as they went along imho)

For example the one you recently did for Kendian.

I'd like to ask a little about your technique if that's ok...

The thing I like most about it is how it doesn't really look like it's a wow model. The blood elf almost looks like a drawing or painting. He almost looks... "silky" lol.

Perhaps it's the lighting (the highlight on his face and the yellowing color overall, etc). Would you mind elaborating on some of your techniques? also, did you go in with a tiny smudge tool and smooth out some of the hard edges to give it a more painterly feel?

Thanks

I'm constantly learning and always strive to do better with each sig. Some of my early sigs were downright terrible.

I cheat

Would you mind elaborating on some of your techniques?
Although the fancy filter does help give the sig a more "hand-drawn" feel, I also use a lot of color enhancements. I use Adjustment Layers like Vibrance, Selective Color, Gradient Map, and sometimes even Curves to fine-tune the colors. For details like Blood Elf eyes I also use Curves to make the eyeglow pop out more for example.

My absolute favorite cannot live without adj layers are Vibrance and Brightness/Contrast.

Also I occasionally use custom brushes for stuff like arcane runes, spell circles, blood splatters...

For sigs where I have to make my own backgrounds I make heavy use of filters (Clouds ftw) and custom brushes (abstract, grunge, fractals...). I do the background in black/white then use adj layers to add color.

You can also use things like scanlines or dots to add a bit more flair.

Texts are important too I usually make use of a good font and try out different Blending Options.

And lastly IMO a good border can make or break your sig. I'm not gonna talk about borders here since it'll take me ages lol but if you want info on a specific border I made I can show you how I did it.

Guess it's time for a sig update as I no longer play an Orc.

I'd like my beloved troll in a fiery theme and in full T12 as I really like the colors of this set.
Just fire everything up!

As for text I'd like if it just said "Neym". Nothing else.

Thanks in advance if you end up doing this!

Sorry Wimp but I no longer play WoW and since I don't have an updated client my WoW Model Viewer doesn't work, so I can't dress up your character

I gave it a try with the background image on your armory page, though, and this is what I ended up with:

Haylieee, I would love a new signature if that would be ok?

Would love to have warlock t6 helm and shoulders showing, either female human or blood elf (I am a human but I love my Orb of the Sin'dorei very much). Maybe match the colors with the tier colors, but otherwise completely up to you
