    Do you first put the render in the sig, or do you first create the bg and then put the render in the sig??

    I sometimes put the render first, when it's a stock.

    I usually put the render in first and then duplicate it a ton of times just incase I want to use the render for different effects. I'll then pick a few colors from the render and then hide all the renders and come up with my background. My method is probably not the most efficient but it's what I found works for me.

    Cool, it's good to know that you have different methods than mine :cool:
    I always put the render, but I don't duplicate it, so if I have a problem with it I'm screwed, I'll try to duplicate it...

    I usually fill the background with a colour (usually black) then add the render straight away, then do all the background effects on top of the render, then delete stuff I don't want (usually on faces of the renders etc..).

    Yeah I find that the duplicating thing works well for the render. There were just too many times where I would need another render and would end up having to go back to the original file where I got or made the render and then copy it back to the sig and resize it. At least this way I just hide all the duplicated renders until needed and I don't have to worry about matching the sizes perfectly.

    The render is the last thing I usually place in a Sig, followed by some brushing. I borrow certain colours from the render as well, but I mostly design a background with a particular theme in mind.
    The above posts also contain some very interesting methods.

    Sounds interesting. I make a black or white bg before placing the render. Always. Then it's just usually taking colors off of the render, doing gradients or or otehr effects. It depends so much.
