Danm2501's Portfolio
 
Alright guys. I've recently started messing about on Photoshop again, for the first time in months having recently purchased a new Macbook Pro, so thought I'd show y'all a few of my pieces, and then any new stuff I put together. Would love to hear your opinions.

Here are a few non-mma sig's I've made in the past:










And then I've just started on my first MMA sig. Here's what I've come up with so far:



I'm not 100% sure about it yet, but for my first attempt in a long, long time and my first time using PS CS3 on my Mac, I think it's decent enough. What do you think? Any thoughts on what I could add to the Forrest one to improve it?

good sigs all around. Just wondering whats the deal with the shading??(have on clue on PS) on pages arms and griffins leg? Perhpas showing the force on contact or somthing to the affect?

Danm2501 01-28-2010 11:27 AM

Yeah, that was the effect I was going for, don't really think I've pulled it off as I'd have liked. I've got the PSD saved though, so I can always go back to it and tinker with it. Cheers for the feedback =]

Here's the original image btw, to show what I've done with it:

i like the idea for sure but i dont know how you could improve it.im sure some of the other artists will help you out.

Haven't gone back to the Forrest one yet, but I have made an Anderson Silva sig this afternoon. As with most of my artworks I'm still not 100% sold on it, and I think it could do with abit of tinkering. But here it is:



What ya think?

Im really digging most of your work, love the Kanye one but what ever effect you were going for on Forrest's leg and Rampages arm it isn't working for me. It does make me question though if maybe Forrest head kicked Michael Jackson because from the look of Rampages arm his kicks change race.

Cheers man! Haha, fair point, looking at it again now it does look abit strange. I'll go back to it eventually and change it. Thanks for the feedback though, much appreciated. What did you think of the Silva one?

Here are a couple more I've made. One was made for my Dad's website (the darts one, Peter's my 2nd cousin) and the 2nd is just one I knocked up this morning. Let us know what you think:

I see on the Anderson one the lighting effect over the center pick has straight edges coming straight up and down, on the Darts one the pic cut off his arm on the right side, always try to avoid straight lines like that in the middle of the sig they are obtrusive and look unnatural. Especially avoid using renders in the center that have there arms cut off.

Danm2501 01-30-2010 01:04 PM

Not sure what you mean about the main Silva render and the straight lines, care to explain?

Yeah, I noticed that on the Darts one once I'd added it, but it's only for my Dad's freewebs site, and he's not too fussed about it, so I left it. What did you think about the Stuart Broad one? It's personally my favourite since I went back to PS, might start on a Fedor one next I think.

Thanks for the feedback again mate, appreciate it!

To the left of Silvas head (left image, forrest punching away and missing epically) and the right of Hendos head the background of the center Silva image is showing slightly and cuts off straight away.

The center images background is still showing and isn't blended well enough in other words.
