Arrow Graphic Tutorials!

Below I have listed several very good tutorials that I have found at deviantart which is a great place to search for tutorials and other stuff. I have listed them in the order that you probably should look at them; it is easier to start with the basic parts and then move on, right?

All credit for the tutorials goes to the creators, hence I have linked to the whole page and just not the picture.


Basic Knowledge Tutorials
This section is good to view if you are a beginner and want to learn the basic stuff that makes a signature and what else look great. It is also good to look back on even if you are on a more advanced level.
The Basic Elements http://dane103.deviantart.com/gallery/5039064#/d1igbi6
Placement + Flow http://peewee1002.deviantart.com/art...l-PS-106407548
Text Placement http://benasty-bsgfx.deviantart.com/...rial-115073637


Mixed Tutorials:
A few useful tutorials.

Signature Tutorials
This section is for the one who wish to go beyond understanding the basic stuff and actually try it out. Go through alot of tutorials in the beginning!
Easy Signature http://dane103.deviantart.com/art/ea...orial-90230732
Novice Signature http://dane103.deviantart.com/art/no...orial-90230202
Hulk http://krismania.deviantart.com/art/Hulk-Tutorial-997790193
Crysis Signature http://chaos-tutorials.deviantart.co...orial-84051654
Pop-out Sig http://cheesygfx.deviantart.com/art/...-Sig-120876732


Tag Tutorials
The difference between a signature and a tag? The tag is sometimes bigger than signatures however it usually is just another name for it.
Spiderman Tag http://dane103.deviantart.com/art/Sp...orial-95902233


Userbar Tutorials
This section is less important however I believe it is fun to create userbars and in the long run it may become a useful knowledge if you recieve GFX requests.
Userbar http://dignifiedjustice.deviantart.c...ners-132309341
Pop-out Userbar http://pzykot.deviantart.com/art/POP...ERBAR-43788561


Advanced
Advanced Signature http://reflectionartwork.deviantart....rial-119461350

Elegant Full Sig http://topgun-gfx.deviantart.com/art...rial-165742968
BRS Sig http://aceryn.deviantart.com/art/BRS...rial-211784463

Resources
You may have to register at some of the sites however it is free.

Planet Renders http://planetrenders.net/ Here you can find alot of renders in different categories. You have to register in order to download the renders.

Deviantart http://www.deviantart.com/ Search for brushes, C4D, stocks, tutorials, etc. Do not forget to read the artists comments about their work. You may have to post that you have used the resources they have created or they maybe want you to favourite their work to support them. I recommend that you create an account in order to post comments and favourite others work. Easy to favourite and find tutorials you can use. You can also upload stuff that you have created.

Too bad the GFX community of NM is pretty much dead.

Hence we might want to recruit some people into the GFX area, quite useful with tutorials in that case. ^_^

You copy someone with your current hairstyle. You copy someone with your current outfit.

You will always copy. ^^

Try not to do animations like that.

Dont do :

S||||||||||||||||||||||E S

S = Start of animation
| = Animation itself
E = End of animation.

Make it so that there is F ( Fade ) between the E and S. So it doesn't look like it simply starts over.

Since your sig is not 100% animation , the rules above dont count. Take these instead :

S|||||||||||||||||||E and then ''fade'' back to the sig. Now , the end is a simple flash , which doesnt look good. Make it so that the end is a fade.

A good example is my current avy.

It's to learn different ways to create effects so that you may learn something and create your own style eventually. When learning everything is copying of course.

Do you mean create effects with brushes or don't you know how to use brushes at all? Or do you wonder how you add new brushes?

Anyway, basic photoshop tools tutorial: http://allykun.deviantart.com/art/Ph...tutorial&qo=84

thanks for the feedback, man. I fixed it but its too big >200kb. Anything else, specifically about the BG, Render? I just went nuts with the feather brush...so the brush tutorial would need to be one for noobs who are focusing on brushes. If you happen to find one that you think would help me, please don't hesitate to link it.
