Hey, I just made a new sig. Any general opinions/stuff to add to it or change? I like it, but something seems a bit off to me. I don't want foreground in this sig btw



Or, if you want true symmetry >_>




Its also a bit pixelated which I don't know if I can fix. Does anyone know the settings to put in GMic for pixel restoration?

EDIT: Fixed pixelation a bit
EDIT 2: Just realized I erased some of the render LOL. Had to redraw part of the left ear and hair.


I make sigs, PM me if you want one :D (Thanks for the Nidalee sig, The_Nameless_Bard!)

Your text shouldn't be on top of the render, it just looks wrong, or like out of placed, and you can't see your render. I think would've looked better without text.
Looking for > Border.
9/10 ?

It's Death The Kid from Soul Eater

He's OCD and requires perfect symmetry. His hair clearly is not but that's a different story ^_^

I understand why Lazukin centered the text within (on top of) the render layer.

The pixelation of the render could simply be the render itself, if you're using GIMP it often has trouble keeping resolution of a piece and it's softening feature might fix the pixelation on the edges but you'll lose what I can only describe as solid clarity of the interior of the render.

On a indirectly related topic, I've created a thread in the sig forums "MOBAVERSE Gallery", you can feel free to post work their for display and ask for CnC (Comments and Critiques) if you want. It's all there on the 1st page of the thread, if you're interested in being one of the first to use it and thus increase its popularity ^_^

I'd give the sig you've made ~9/10. Great composition, and an attempt to keep DTK's character intact. Try the "Soften" filter in GIMP. Or "Soften Edges" to see what happens.

The "Pixelation" Is just bad render quality. You'd be better off with a better render. And you lack blending entirely. Using clipping masks helps the blending process.

Thanks! I did some erasing and smudging to lower pixelation. I might end up removing the text as well, but I'd like a few more opinions on it.

Any thoughts on adding a foreground? I thought about it but I think it would be weird for this render.

Hmmm

I think it's fine as is TBH without a foreground. The pixelation though really messes with its overall presentation. However I bet, if you went to planetrender.com and looked up either "Death The Kid" or "Soul Eater" you might be able to find a higher quality render, then you just sub it in for the current one :D
