This contest feels like a bootcamp for signature makers, you get to improve at every aspect of signature making, from Textures to C4Ds. This is awesome.

ROUND FOUR
Winner of Round Three:
+ Congratulations to Apfeljack who blew the competition out of the water with the massive score of 42 points.
+ Apfel's huge gain of points proves that anyone can win, at any time! :D
+ As a reminder, The_Nameless_Bard currently holds the most points at a score of 56!
+ This round focuses on using C4Ds to make your signature. Have a look around for some C4D tutorials if you have never used them before. Your signature does not need to be abstract like mine, go crazy! :D

Responses to Comments:
+ Amanda: Fair enough :3
+ Xeres: Interesting use of the stimulus. Did you look a tutorial? If so, I'd love to see the one you picked :)
+ Yaya: Yup! That's what I intended. Wanted people to try new things every step of the way. Or at least, if they aren't new "things", at least play around with stuff they may not play around with very often :D

Unrelated Note:
+ My birthday is the day before the last round starts! So maybe that's a hint of what the stimulus will be! LOLJOKES.

^ yay :D What I tried to do was blend it in with the background so it seems like some creepy blob of darkness/energy and complements that eerie spectral feel I wanted to portray.

@jhoi, no tutorials :3 Just messed around in photoshop like I always do xD

I used the stimulus as a light source. I desaturated it, blurred it a lot, and set it to addition (it's duplicated twice for intensity).

Emma Watson Pics are unfair for this competition.

Excellent work from Test, Nameless and Xeres so far, gj guys!
Hey Nameless, do you have a source for the fractals you used on the Emma Watson picture? They look really neat (:

I used this for the starry look (obviously I smudged parts of it away that fell in odd places on her face and such)

the other one I used could have been anything, as I ended up using a strong gaussian blur on it and recolored it.
