    Some of you may think this is un-needed and repetitive (if so, don't post and it might die), some of you may think it's cool.

    What you do here is, if one finds a signature (from another sight or here) and wants to know a technique that was used in it, you post it here and the other GFX members help determine what the possibilities could be. I thought this could help us engage in interesting conversation and (hopefully) help learn some techniques that could shape our skill as GFX designers. This could especially help out the noobies (such as Yunaleska).

    Begin.

    What theme have I used in my sig. I have no idea!

    P.S. It plays slow the first time, after that it plays fine.

    -_-

    We don't tell about our own techniques unless, say, I asked, "Close, how'd you [...] in your latest sig? It's awesome."

    Say your on Gamerenders and you see this awesome sig. You come here, post the sig, ask "How did this person do such and such" then the GFX artists pitch in to determine what techniques could have been used...


    Maybe this is a stupid idea?

    Agreed :)

    This will help many people to understand more techniques and apply them in tags.

    Well to start the damm topic, I have one question. What is a LP??

    I saw many LPs in Gamerenders, and I thought to share them. Here's one of the best things that I've seen in there:

    Daaayyyuuummmmnnnn.

    I have no idea. I tried looking it up and couldn't find anything related to GFX that would abbreviated LP. It looks very nice though. :)

    Glad everyone thinks this will turn out well.

    You need a programm called Uber Cool 3D. It's a very hard programm to work with in the beginning though...

    I can take a crack at it. There's definitely C4D usage, probably one the artist made himself to suit the LP. How many C4Ds are beyond me. It could be 1 or possibly 4, hard to tell. >.> Looks like either stock usage, filter usage, or something I have no idea of at the top/in the background. The rest looks like several different layers on various blending modes and opacities to create the color/lighting. I may be COMPLETELY off btw.

    A very nice idea.

    But seriously, its a nice idea to learn about other techniques, allowing us to improve our skills further. :)

    Hm...that siggy is pretty basic tbh. The animation though, could be done in GIMP easily. (Like my recent avy's, but with more time and frames invested, lol)

    doesn't photoshop have a "map to object" option?
