    ▓▓▓Horus' Signature Tutorial▓▓▓

    So I spent the last 3 hours making a tutorial for my latest tag, which can be found here:
    http://narutobase.net/forums/showthread.php?t=640060
    Its my first tutorial!

    I hope the person's interested in GFX can learn something from this tutorial!..
    If you have any questions, feel free to ask me!

    Courage is the mindset of not
    surrendering even if you lack
    the strength!
     



    Re: Horus' Signature Tutorial

    OMG, I love this.

    The tag itself was sick in the first place and the fact you explained it perfectly well and showed us a final result, gives us a lot of headroom to create our own ideas. What would be neat is if you provided links to all the sources where you took the C4D and some of the layer effects in order to make our lives easier.

    Still, one amazing tutorial and amazing outcome. I am fairly proud of you teacher

    Re: ▓▓▓Horus' Signature Tutorial▓▓▓

    God's work, I'm sure other are as appreciative as I am, your signatures are always on point and the fact that you have even bothered making a tutorial, gives me the impression you really care about the members on the Base. A question though, do you know who originated this colourful, C4D placement, font type of signatures? I've seen this style before around forums, but I still haven't figured out whom originated this style, I know Sikk does this type of stuff too, but I'm fairly certain he didn't originate it either.

    Thanks Six! And the idea behind this, is to not use the same resources I used, but look around for stuff that appeals to you and then try the methods I've mentioned

    I think I'll be making more tutorials in the future because I want more and more people to get into the field of making signatures. Seeing as the Design Hall is overrun with purely avatar threads, which don't really showcase GFX talent much, I was hoping to get more people into the art of tag making, which they can branch off on to other complicated stuff, like logo designing, photomanipulation, large art...things like that, if they'd like to that is.
    But then again, NB's not a GFX forum..

    And I have no idea tbh, I've been seeing those types of sigs on DA but I don't know who's the actual originator of the style.. I extracted these C4D's from a PSD that Sikk sent me. He can't remember where he got them from, so I'm gonna hunt for them more because these are the type of C4D's that I like..
    So Sikk, if you're reading this, lets go hunting for C4D's lol

    I completely agree with you, this site is overrun by avatars, on a ration of tags to avatars, it would be something like 1:6. It's absurd. I get it that this is an manga forum, not a GFX forum, but I still think people need to open up to signature making, which like you said, could intrigue them into something like photo manipulations and logo designs. It could even interest someone so far, that they would start illustrating. I have no idea why the people who post on the Design Hall, don't bother making signatures, or haven't even peeked into the field, I find it very confusing. If you're making avatars, I'm sure you would want to try out something bigger, and something that's filled with 'Design' even more, that's what the section is created for, to design, not to crop, overlay, and finish an avatar (This excludes some people who make an effort into their avatars). I think you're headed into the right direction Horus, keep making these tutorials, maybe that will spark an interest into people's minds.

    Re: ▓▓▓Horus' Signature Tutorial▓▓▓

    Idk who it exactly was but that type of c4d's,the style and the text like that came up first on a GFX forum
    It was pretty rare at the beginning but since it looks cool, people make it more often now.

    The thing is that most of the NB members care for the avatars only. Some people don't even use sigs. And this is imo the reason why tags are rarely made. More avatars = more for members to choose from.

    Thanks man! It should be noted though that its alright if people wanna just do avatars.. Maybe eventually they'll explore deeper or maybe not. Its perfectly alright with me.

    That C4D style is known as the distorted style, and its been around for a couple of years but I don't know who directly originated them. As for the text, I think font styles are unique to the user's style.. though there are some users who rip off text from PSD's but meh..

    That's exactly what it is, but what I'm gonna try to do is help people to explore deeper into the world of GFX, dunno how much would want to be up for the challenge though..

    Nice tutorial. At least you show the settings, I was too lazy to bother with that xD And I will try to dig through my folders once more to see if I can find the original ones.

    Nice tut easy to follow and simple steps to get a good result.

    Is that a twirl filter on the c4d? if it is you should try adding a wave filter to the twirl filter, you get some awesome results when you combine both.

    As for the Avatar vs signature thing, what many people don't realize is that most avatar makers find stocks and edit them. Which doesn't require a lot of knowledge in PS, since 85% of the work is already done. With a signature you pretty much do it all yourself and requires a lot more PS knowledge

    Actually, that's the way the C4D looks lol
    I didn't distort it myself.
    And thanks!

    Also, yep, but whatever makes them happy I guess xD
