    you get 19+1+14+20+1 = 55 = 5x5 =25. Now mirror the number 25 and you get 52 = 5-2 = Illuminati pyramid has 3 sides. Santa = Illuminati confirmed!

So I'm a big Gohan fan and I made a signature, based on my old one that I took from my guild's site, Dragons Past so I had to fit out emblem somwhere. I've wanted to make one from some months ago and I finally did. I made a few ideas and these two are the ones that I liked the most. The difference between the two is very little anyway.

Number one:
Spoiler for Hidden:

And my personal favorite:
Spoiler for Hidden:

Edit: My new personal favorite (after recieving feedback and changing contrast):
Spoiler for Hidden:

Edit 2.0: So I got two ideas very different from the first ones thanks to the feedback I've gotten. Gonna place them here so you don't need to go all the way down through the thread to see them:
Spoiler for Hidden:


I have a problem though. When I made them in photoshop I left an area with no background on purpose and, after uploading them, they automatically get a while background there. How do I remove that?

Edit: Found by logic it needs to be a PNG and not a JPG.

Give me opinions and ideas since it's my first signature banner. I've done a lot of Photoshop projects but I usually edit pictures and stuff.

Not bad, bro!  It has really nice balance overall, it flows really nicely.   I think the bottom one is definitely better, the white outline feels out of place, while the black lines makes a nice border and helps the characters pop out more.  Nicely done! 8)

I like it, but I get a weird feeling of emptiness because I think there should be something in the center, but that's only my opinion.

Yeah, that's why I liked the bottom one more too. I had to add a glow to Teen Gohan because I had to cut him from a picture and he got a blueish edge I couldn't remove without removing the outline. I fear that glow could make it worse...

I get that feeling too but adding something there will make the thing have a lot of elements and it would be too... overloaded? Not sure if that's the term used in english. I studied graphic design in spanish but that's the literal translation of the word.

That's kinda what I felt too.  I thought maybe you should add something near the bottom, but then I felt like it would be too crowded.  The space in the middle really works for this I think.

I might add the Dragon Balls I have in the forums and update it every time I get a new one but I'll try it out later.

Also, crowded is a better term than "overloaded", thanks :P.

Ok let me see.

You using design of signature where renders are outside of border ok, but follow this.

1. Full renders outside of border can not be cut out like you did, they need to be full.
2. If you want to cut out then let it be half outside, that is legs gone and render placed on down border.
This way you will get feeling that render comes out from signature.
3. Kid gohan on right, is good enough and other things too just that DBOR Render Logo, fix it soo that others renders "don't eat him".


Just check out what I say here and it will be much better, good luck.

What do you mean by "don't eat him"? I think that's the best position for the logo without covering up the other renders' faces.

Also, I didn't understand very well what you tried to say with the render cutting and stuff. Maybe you mean avoid him from going out of the background below and just cut him there like if half his body was still inside? I actually like how it looks. Not sure if that's what you meant but here's what I understood:

Spoiler for Hidden:
I also added some contrast to the background. I think it looks better like this.




I can't move that Gohan around too much anyway because I, somehow in the process cut him off on top and on the bottom so what you see is pretty much all there is in the layer (except for a little piece of his right arm). I'd have to use the pen tool to select all his silhouette all over again from the original picture since I couldn't find that same picture without a background. The legs are cut off anyway in the original picture:

I think the main problem with the 'empty space' feeling is simply because your signature doesn't have a focus...or perhaps it's more accurate to say you've placed the focus at the centre but haven't supported it.

I'm trying not to be overly complicated when explaining this (I've just about written and erased 3 different explanations lol) but in simple terms, you need to create your focus whether that be with your main render or words.

You can support it by adding depth. Depth is usually achieved by using the blur tool in PS to blur everything (not too much, but just a little) but the focus. That way, the human eye catches the focus first then goes on to the take in the rest of the sig.

But hey, that's just my two cents. It's not too shabby the way it is. Keep practicing and you can only get better :D

Yep I understand what you mean. It makes it seem like the rock is the main subject xD
Still a great signature!

Got 3 more ideas. One's just a little change, hard to notice; another one's just a change in the positioning; and the third one is something with big changes.

Made a little change to my current sig, making the DBOR logo bigger and adding a blurr to the background. Just ignore Teen Gohan's hair being cut on top, I'll fix that later:
Spoiler for Hidden:

This is another idea I got by moving around Kid Gohan and the guild emblem but it might not be as good as the previous ones, just gonna post it anyway since you guys might like it. I didn't put too much effort in it since I didn't like it as much:
Spoiler for Hidden:

In this last one I changed the 3 renders. The idea was to have an element in the middle to beat the empty area but I fear it might be too crowded now:
Spoiler for Hidden:

I place the images inside spoilers to make the post look shorter, in case you're wondering.

I actually really like the 3rd one, but I think it might look a bit better if you put the text at the bottom and young gohan at the top. In other words, switch the positions of middle gohan and the dbo revelations emblem. Just a thought! These are all really good though!

Thought so too but kid gohan would be sitting in the air because of the picture I got it from is. I could place DBOR Logo in the middle and half of Gohan showing up on top of it. Just came up with that, I'll try it later.

And here's the result (which I like more than the last one):

I think it still needs alot of work tbh.

Its decent as is, but it just has a very "amateur-ish" look to it somehow.

well keep in mind this IS his first attempt at a sig. So tbh it's not bad for a first time.

By "the third one" you mean my current sig?

Yep ^^

Well, I wanted to make something simple just to have a forum signature made by myself. Not trying to do an awesome sig like Kaiza's. So by telling me it's decent I guess it fullfilled it's purpose :).
