First one is nice, though the text isn't as clear everywhere.
Love the second one.
Too many 'Itachi' sigs, so that's a nah.

lol thanks maby a rating? like outa 10?
In response to King-manga-man (#2)
-10 FAIL!

That's not art, that's theft and vandalism. Anyone can rip some images from the internet and paste them into a paint program. Your backgrounds are just gibberish, no better than splatter painting, except I suspect those are ripped as well. Artistic value: none.

Scanlines aren't cool.

Have you never seen a sig before? Good background + well blended text + render = a sig. Most of the time atleast.

Those backgrounds are far better than most I've seen done by BYONDers.

I give them a 8.5, 7, 6 respectively.

The first one is blended well and so is the second but they have the same text effect. I just don't like the last one at all.

Meh, I believe the background is ripped, and if it's not, the way to do that is brushes already made.


So basically, all he did was use brushes+steal a picture, paste, add text=skeelz? I think not.

Something like this, which, I drew, not good however, is better:

Well exactly. Why innovate and be creative (which is essentially what art should be), when you can conform to some boring, predecided method of mediocrity?

Too many times. How do you make a good background? You download a brush from the internet, smear it around with some colors and call it good. Hardly anyone creates their own brushes, and those who do just steal the sample from someone else's art. This is not art, it's theft. Sig thieves are not artists. They will never be artists, and trying to use others work will only get you respect from low-life thieves.

Try getting a graphic arts job with that, and see how fast they show your punk ass the door. Artists genrally hate you, for the simple fact that you steal their work, make it horribly ugly, and plaster it over the internet as your own creation. You're a plight on the artistic community, and it's about damned time someone said something!

A render? What the hell is that? It's someone's hard work not some "render", which makes it sound like a lifeless computer-generated image. Not only is the word misleading, it's insulting to the artist who actually did the hard work you're getting credit for.

People study long and hard to be able to draw these "renders". They invest time, money and sweat to hone thier skills. They are real artists, creating art from scratch. They don't need sophisticated paint programs, complex brushes or filters, they use real tools, like ink and pen, paper and, omg, TALENT! Until you can create your own art, you are not an artist. You are a thief.

Those backgrounds are far better than most I've seen done by BYONDers.

They're boring, give nothing to the picture except busy lines and blotches of color. They are no different than the 100,000 other backgrounds I've seen sig "artists" use. Sigs are not art. You are not artists. You will never be respected until you learn to create for yourself, and stop stealing other people's work.

Consedering i have only been using photoshop for about a week and a half now plus i havent seen any tutorials and i havent had much time to do much on it considering college and work, i think i have done quite well, and as for making my own brushes, i would if i knew how to, maby i might get a tutorial(if i have enough time.
In response to CodingSkillz2 (#6)
as i have already sed i would draw my own picture but i cant draw properly with a mouse i am waiting for my next pay from work and then i am going to go out and buy a decent, medium sixed graphics tablet and then i will make my own pics as for the background, its better than yours even if the brushes are made by someone else, (like yours probably are) plus i have yet to learn how to make brushes as i have not yet had time in the past week and a half that i have been using photoshop to learn.

heres something else i made also a siggy-

Amen to that. I've always wondered how people can throw compliments at what seems to be just a few scratchy lines stuck over some character they like.

because not everyone has the same dislikes and likes somepeople like it (like me) and some people dont (like you)

Well, if this was a fansite for whatever show/game/whatever your art was taken from, that would acceptable. But this is a game development site, not only do we frown upon copyright infringement, we don't cafe for blatant rip offs of other peoples work. Like I said, if this was a fan site, more power to you for creating something that would work on the community.

I agree with Xooxer that those are not art, but I do not think they are theft. They are, however, copyright infringement.

They are also very generic. I have seen a million signature pictures that look almost just like that. It is similar to the argument as to weather or not stickmen are art or not. Everyone can draw them, so what makes your stickmen art? Art is considered something that takes talent, and if photoshop makes that image for you, than you did not use talent, you used a program. So if that art is anyone’s besides the original creator, it is photoshops.

That is not to say that all art created in photoshop was "created by" photoshop. Photoshop has many tools, which allows you to create very complex and detailed works of art, what you have instucted photoshop to make is simple and lacking of any real invention.

I am not an artist, and have very few pieces of art to my name, but I enjoy being able to say MY art is MINE. I think the only artwork that I have created that contains others art is my "Errorzilla" wallpaper. It takes a windows error message, gives it Godzilla’s arms and legs (From a picture of a toy), puts him in the middle of Tokyo (I didn't take the picture), and has Tux sitting there watching him rampaging (I didn't draw Tux). I would still call this art though. I took many elements and mixed them together (though much editing), to convey an idea or thought.

he he that errorilla thing sounds kewl any way i just drew (W00t!) my own anime picture so ima try and use it in a banner of mine kk it dosent look to good due to the fact that i used a mouse but it will do if people stop calling me a thief
In response to Scoobert (#14)
Agreed, but a business would laugh you out as much if you used a program to generate art as if you used a program to generate a program.

They really don't care as long as what you done is legal, and they like the end product. If he downloaded a free brush off of a free website(so long as it's free for commercial use too), the business could care less as long as they like the work.

I don't like the idea much myself, but it's true.

It is good for a laugh, but doesn't make a great background. Anywho, you are not a theif, but you are infrenging on copyright laws, and to some degree, calling someone elses work your own. I will admit that my Errorzilla wallpaper takes others artwork and blends them in with my own idea, which means I did not create the whole thing, only the idea. You signatures, on the other hand, are mostly other peoples work and very little of your own ideas.
In response to Scoobert (#17)
hey hey hey they drew the pics then put them on a forum saying that any 1 can use them so is that still frowned upon? and as for saying there mine i am sorry everything sept the pics are mine

also that erorzilla thing was kewl lol
In response to Xooxer (#8)
Hey man, if he wants to make a Naruto fan siggy he can. It's like...wow, go rant on your blog or something, not the forums.


Especially if all you're going to do and say is "you're a Theif, you're not a artist"



Nice sigs btw, you're pretty good..
