What do you guys think?
Toxic and Kry, give me some tips, I'm not too experienced with using the smudge tool.
I like it. Especially for your 2nd smudge sig. It's really good.
2 changes I'd make, would be to blend the render (Cheify) in a little bit better on the left side of the sig. A simple 100px soft eraser set at 30-40% over the render should make it look more blended. Or duplicate the render again, smudge only that side and play around with blending modes/opacity and erase the rest.
Some white brushing set to soft light could help as well.
The text I'd move ever so slightly closer to the smudging. It won't draw the eye away from the focal point then.
Excellent job MC.
