For this round, you will be making a signature about the Buffalo Bills. Have fun with this one, but keep it within the TOS (http://www.finheaven.com/boardvb2/showthread.php?t=1655). Signatures should be no larger than 400 x 300 px. There is no limit on KB. (yes I know that they have to be under 40 KB to be used on finheaven) All signatures need to be pmed to me by 7:00 pm EST Saturday, October 16. I hope that we have everyone turn in there work this time, I was kinda dissapointed last week.

Don't you mean 40 KB? Does it have to be bashing them?

Yeah I meant 40,000 bytes. And no, you can do whatever you want as long as it involves the Bills and meets the size req.

Yes animation is allowed because this is a photoshop competition and photoshop comes with imageready, which is an animation program.

If I was still in it I would have put more time into it. I'm slowly learning the little things.

If you want my advice, which you might not, you need to work on cutting out the players. A lot of your cuts are jagged. I usually cut out the players by taking the polygonal lasso and zooming in as far as you can and still tell where the player is and then outlining the player with a series of clicks of the polygonal lasso. Also, I don't really like the bevel/emboss thing that it looks like you are doing to them. Don't take this the wrong way, you are very good for just starting out. I was much worse at first. It's just my advice cause I thought you probably want as much help as you can get. Again, you are very good for a newcomer.

Thanks, I just tried the polygonal lasso, it is alot easier that way. I used the bevel/emboss things to try and hide the bad lines.

I sorta thought that might be why. I do that sometimes too :lol: usually with drop shadow or glow though.

What size do you usually use? I was wondering how all these graphic people whip up sigs in an hour, and it take me like 25 mins to cut out a player.

depends on the size of the image...if there's a large amount of unwanted space I use a big eraser then use a smaller one when I move in closer...I'll use a polygon lasso for things like a facemask when the cut out holes are too small to use just the eraser... I tend to make good use of the "undo" button though lol :lol:

I use the Lasso Tool to cut. And it works fine all the time. I got mad lassoing skills :D.

the best way to cut is with the magic wand, tooling with the tolerance level as you go along. takes longer, but the results are perfect

You need the right background to do that though. Sometimes you will have to use the lasso.

well when cutting players out of action pics it's the best method

darkmistress
10-11-2005, 08:45 PM
If you want to cut something out perfectly zoom in as close as possible and use the "pen" tool, this has the best results ;)
