    - Background + foreground need a depth change...blur the back...or desaturate the back by 25-50%...or change the color all together. The black behind the name and the black from his hair work well together, provides a good effect that makes it look like he's emerging from the black. Work off that idea.

    - Light shining off to the right takes away all focal attention from the center of the sig where the name and the primary render are. It also appears that the light is coming from no where as it just kind of starts.

    - Your primary render has implied vertical movement, and with the guns pointing downwards and only the top half of his body is showing, your light source would be coming from the bottom, especially if you're working with the black part I mentioned above. Your light source is...well, where the lighting of the signature is SUPPOSED to be coming from. If you have light in one area, it's going to be darker in the outlying areas. Since your render is very wide horizontally and if your light course is coming from the bottom, it will be brighter directly under his face and the middle of his body, and darker along the outsides, meaning that render on the far right would barely be visible, if at all.

    - That type of render really needs to be centered. It has little to no horizontal movement other than the arms out, and it's completely symmetrical, so all effects can stem directly from the body.



    I know you asked Kano...but I answered you anyways.

    I like it (: , however For lighting use a soft round brush ( 175 with 0 hardness ) and a smaller brush (o hardness ) and brush a bit on the silver guns , change mode to linear dodge and lower opacity (: . Btw for that sig a splatter + masking layer would look amazing

    Yeah...I guess they do know a bit about it....
    My terminology follows along the lines of :
    Add some lightning, a shiny glare in the southeast corner could do,
    Put a high gloss thingy ti make it look.like a new car
    And the angle wrong hellsings facing in relation to his output!
    @Flowman - I agree with you on that! There is no such thing as a BEST
    artist, each is unique different,and can be perceived as the BEST by someone else,
    but I'd be like comparing a furary with a lambo or mozaradie.
    At the end of the day, they're all masterpieces!

    *Soft Light

    Linear Dodge doesn't work for lighting if you're using white. Linear dodge would work well with colors if you're doing a glow type of lighting...but it makes the background images you're trying to reflect light on too bright sometimes, and kind of makes it look like there's just a ball of light. Soft light gives you exactly what it's called....a soft light that doesn't block out the contours of the picture and stays true to the color you're looking for.

    If you're gonna use linear dodge for lighting, don't go too far away from the original shape of the object you're trying to illuminate. Even using "Normal" with lowered opacity works well depending on the situation.

    Mhmm but if u use color picker to pick out bright colors and with linear dodge u can enhance the natural lighting already present in the sig. Which would be ideal for the sig aero made since it does not have any natural source of lighting. Imo soft light only works if there is a light source already.

    @ Aliss - lol you aren't a car girl eh

    Well there's a difference between adding a light source and accenting an object.
    Dodging/Burning are done based on where the light source is coming from...can't dodge an object if there's no light coming in...unless you meant to have the guns kinda glow...like they're magic or something lol...in which case, by all means, throw some light grey on the gun and linear dodge it, it'll look like it's glowing white.

    But I dunno I don't think there should be any colored light shining on the guy's face...especially if the guns are glowing. You'd have to make them the primary light source, in which case his face would barely be visible and would shine a faint color of whatever the guns give off.

    I make almost all my backgrounds from scratch unless it's a stock picture of nature like the sig I made for Silent or if barely any of it will be showing, so I never use "natural sources of lighting"...kinda think it takes away from the foreground.

    Lol I don't mind it, the 2009 Star Trek movie's trademark was the incredibly excessive lens glare.... I've come to like it. XD
