Lovely tutorial An! ^_^


The C4D render you used is pretty *_* I haven't looked for new files in years ... might have to rectify that. XD

Fantastic!

I am to assume that this is with GIMP correct?
if it is then 1 question before I try this out myself...
how do you make a clipping and layer masks

To add a layer mask, right click the layer and click "add layer mask." Voila!

This is a very nice tutorial, by the way. The typography is pretty simple, but the background layers look lovely! :D

I;m just reporting in to say that this tutorial is pretty boss
I just made my sig using parts of it as references

I didn't use even close to all the steps, but I got the idea of blending the C4D renders with the grunge from it, and I was able to work from there!
[like]good job, an

Thank you very much for making this!

If I did this again I would have brought out the C4d a tad more.

The layer mask and text were what bothered me the most with this signature.
Thanks again for making it :)

I tried to do something with it on GIMP but I couldn't make the texture. Well, I made it, but it would only let me have it be on top of the radial thing I had. Can you explain this GIMP-wise?
