Font is too big. There is no light source or form of lighting on the tag. Not bashing it. Just making observations. Also, the bigger you make the tag, the more you have to compensate for empty space. I felt that you made the text big just to take up all that empty space. Try following the rules of third for render placement.

Ideal tag sizes are usually 400x150. I sometimes do that and 400x200.

Yea I didn't mess around a lot and this is my first time using GIMP. I'll take your suggestions for the next one I make.

Oh, I didn't know you were using GIMP. If you ever get the chance, you need to switch to Photoshop.

Yea I'd like to. Don't have the cash on me at the time. Maybe when I have more money I'll switch to Photoshop.

There are other ways of obtaining Photoshop, throwin' that out there. :rolleyes:

Anyway, it's good to see you're using effects for your first tag. Expand on that, as you'll be using more as you grow onward.

It's big for your first, make it smaller so you can attract more attention tords' the render/image you want to be seen, and make the text smaller since it's not the main focus.

Keep messed around with what your current program has to offer and keep looking at tutorials, you'll get better over time.

Follow a beginner tut to get you started. After that, don't use them. Eventually you will just fall back on them and make the same tags. I've seen people do it a lot on this site.

This was my first sig I ever posted on this site.



I learned from some of the best artist on this site through mentoring. Tut's didn't get me very far. I'm not saying not to use them but don't rely on them. They are very vague and don't teach much. I would mentor you if I had the time. Unfortunately, trying to juggle school, 2 shops on here, and finding a cure for my skin problem is hard on my enough.
