Zeejay, I know you're busy but I have another favor to ask... I've been struggling with banners for the last 2 hours and got nowhere so I was wondering if you could add one to this piece for me if I send you the PSD?

I'm starting to get a headache because of the frustration. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

http://i941.photobucket.com/albums/ad255/Murcuseo/Assassins%20Creed/EagleAud.png

I've been trying to make a traditional style dark wooden banner just above the Auditore Shield. It would start infront of the Assassins symbol but loop behind the wings at the shoulder then reappear underneath and head back up towards the wingtips.

If that makes sense. lol

The original is 1500x450.

Let me know if you have time and I'll send you the PSD.

Thanks.

Ok guys, sorry for the double post, but I need an opinion from y'all.

Hey, this is clearer than the one at GN!

Maybe it's the board's dark blue background. Again, I love the dark mood of the overall sig. Really gives an evil look to it.

Oh, and Robson, passed me up the PSD. Lemme see if I cook this.

sorry about getting off track but:

Look at the loading bar and on the left hand side of that page that you posted a link to, that symbol looks like the Australian 50c "look-a-like Abstergo" coin (I know it isn't but it looks like it!)

Similarities:
2 lines thick instead of normal Abstergo 1 line
Goes in the same direction (can't work out whether it's clockwise or anti-clockwise)

Differences: The site's symbol is a whole triangle (coin is kinda cut of triangle)
Coin was made in 1982



Sorry, I just had to bring that up

None. Most of them are the same. All the sigs are seen-one-seen-all types. No creativity. No originality.

I rather go to PSDTuts+ or other sites that are similar to really increase design knowledge.

Rough, pixelated fonts you have there, mikini. Try something like a Times New Roman font like Palatino. Read this: http://www.thedesigncubicle.co...typography-mistakes/ (http://www.thedesigncubicle.com/2008/12/10-common-typography-mistakes/)

It could help you improve typography.

Nice, sbred.

However, be careful not to do what most people are already doing around the web for signatures; doing so can make you lose your own identity, your 'uniqueness'.

See this ConceptArt.org thread on Graphic Design (http://www.conceptart.org/forums/showthread.php?t=191664) comprehension.

Speaking of ConceptArt.org, I joined the forum after I explored it for awhile (months actually). I wanna study concept art so that's best to go for online activity. It is also the same forum where industry concept artists go to showcase their work.

Planet Renders is THE best renders site, it has no competition. Why, what exactly is the problem?

I also still think the text on your sig needs significant improvement. It looks like you just took an image and put text on top.

Slime, that is your best work yet. Even if the map overlaps the seal, at one glance, it looks like the seal has textures on it. Very good work on the textures, composition & concept. Simple yet effective.

You really take the challenge into account, eh?


Okay, it seems that no one has submitted any completed challenge yet, I'll commence challenge #2 (don't worry, first challenge is still open):-

Again, same set:-

Size is 375px x 75 px
.PNG format
I want just the hidden blade of either Ezio or Altair but the blade is thrust onto a piece of cloth. This cloth can be anything; fabric, sack, clean, dirty, rugged, old, new, plain, with/without textures etc. It's your call but on that piece of cloth has to be a name and an AC symbol. The name and the AC symbol must be side-by-side, no matter the position. The blade's direction is from the left, thrust to the right so the direction has to be on the right hand side, horizontally. The blade can be at static or at motion.

For variety, add some accessory elements such as beads, blood strokes, water sprinkles, flower petals etc. Again, your idea BUT NO NEONS. You can modify the hidden blade according to your taste as well; give it ornamental cravings, arabesque carvings, Renaissance patterns. Anything. You decide.

BUT REMEMBER, DON'T STRAY AWAY FROM OVERALL ASSASSIN'S CREED CONCEPT. Make the signature as the signature of Assassins.

"Where other men blindly follow the truth, remember...
Nothing is true.

Where other men are limited, by morality or law, remember...
Everything is permitted.

We work in the dark to serve the light.
We are the Assassins."

Good luck.

you might want to use a different font and the shadows seem kind of weird since they're on both left and right side.

Don't ask for criticism, you're asking for trouble. Ask for critique instead. It can increase confidence and lessen the impact of feeling down.

Okay, on to the critique:

I love the torn effect in the sack. It's as if it's really old and burned a bit (Slime, take note). The torn hole in the texture really gives variance, add more effect of aging.

The text needs work though. It looks very odd. I suggest to blur it first (NOT TOO MUCH) to get soft edges and then sharpen it back. After that, blend and clip mask it onto the texture like the AC symbol.

Also, the shadow distance makes the whole image seems floating towards the viewer. The image is flat so if it's floating, make sure to distort the image first. Otherwise, keep the shadow distance very near to the image. This is called depth perspective.

Overall, an improvement. Well done. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/clap.gif

zeejay, did you see the sig I made on the previous page? The optimus prime one?

zeejay21
09-26-2010, 04:21 PM
Yes. It's good. Nice use of blurring for depth of field. I like the use of lighting and effects.

But small text, making it hard to read. The borders are common & plain. Focal is lost, making the image hard to understand. It also lacks originality.

Text, if it's planned to be read, must be readable and position accordingly. Too small will strain the eyes and since signatures are in small sizes, readable text MUST NOT be small (a difference from what most usual sig designers would do).

I also see you used the Rule of Thirds here or a six-boxed grid. It is a confusing system eventhough to artists it is rather easy to follow (just put anything near to middle of canvas as the focus). It's much more simpler to just study perspective and composition first.

Remember, in design, originality is the prime focus. Bring your original ideas to life. Don't follow what is usual.

In creating hyper real art, focal is important. For this case, make Prime sharper and with strong color values while the other robot lighter in color and desaturated. This is called color depth.

Know the distinction between them (hyper-real art & design) and you'll get through.

Thanks for the comments, fellas. I can't really give specific details on how to achieve it since it requires much explanation but here's the .PSD image so you guys can study (or mess around with it):

http://www.mediafire.com/?wlldlwg930lgxl3

I can, however, tell how to get the shadows at the sides; it's automatically added if you add some Render > Lighting effects... filters. I chose Five Lights Up option for the wall texture. For the text, I use advanced blending techniques (http://www.photoshopessentials.com/photo-effects/blend-if/).

Download the .PSD and let's see what you guys can learn from it. Don't hesitate to ask me if you get stuck in 'deconstructing' it.


@Slime
Slime, the whole image is 'heavy' meaning too much is going on. The colors are the catalyst here. Too much strong & dark values, you need to make some adjustments by creating contrasts. I suggest the cloth to be lighter in color while still keeping strong blood colors. The text and symbol composition needs work as well. It's hard to read to an already busy background.

The challenge also requires the blade, ONLY the blade, with no hands, thrusting onto a piece of cloth, not onto a body (that's the executioner's body I see there). I'll do sketch of what I had in mind later on.

Also, keep in mind that this is a .PNG challenge like before so no touching the borders AT ALL. This is both a challenge and a practice in order to improve both skill and understanding in design.


@sbred
Nice creation there, sbred! I like the planet imagery here. Rough on some areas but since this is a quick do, it's forgivable. I hope you continue making stuff like this rather than depending on C4Ds (especially C4Ds) renders or stocks too much.

And don't use the Rules of Thirds too much as well. It's confusing unless you do composition first.

Also, per your question on the white lights on my test sig:

Remember 80's sci-fi? Where there were lights onto the walls? I don't know what's the purpose why it was there in the first place. Sometimes, it's buttons, other times, it's wires but it did have a sci-fi element feel to it. I use that for Ship's Wall as well. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif


@jacob1996to2007
What would you like?


Also a reminder for those who want to make signatures:
Sigs are images used in forums as a representation. It could be used as just an image, static or animated, or interactive buttons using forums BBcode.

To create sigs, first see the rules such dimension or resolution size (area of image) and file size (usually mueasured in kilobytes).

Within the dimension given (Ubisoft forums allows up to 500 pixels of width and 150 pixels of height as well as max 60 kilobytes), you can do anything in there: art, pictures & text as long as it doesn't break the rules given such as rude images or advertising sites unless otherwise stated.

Creating what inside of sigs has been a huge debate amongst sig makers; most would use images using just copy-and-paste with no or little knowledge in design, others use just text as means of art (called typography) and some, like myself, would do more.

Most would say creating signatures are just for looking cool (a misconception) & use C4D renders to create abstracts as either a background or design element, however, confused with fine art. Others create art using a variety of methods such as vectors, pop, street art etc.

Then there's people like me, dedicated to design & art as a passion, loves originality & variety. Understanding what design really is and always have a hunger to learn and do more.

But remember, signatures are just small or medium images. It's a representation of forum users who use them. Yes, there are cool looking sigs but most of them are unused or only used for short while. Design signatures according to what the users requested while keeping in line of what you have in mind.

Don't follow what people usually do; follow your own. Be original.

A lot of sig designers use this without appropriate guidance. One of the reasons why most sigs look the same.

Fortunately, I'm not seeing it here much - everyone just push out their ideas without fear. This mindset should be adopted in today's sig designers.

http://i927.photobucket.com/albums/ad116/zeejay21/Ubisoft%20forums/Signature-for-SOTW-174.jpg

It was just cars and this was for a Signature of The Week for a forum but I don't think I'm gonna enter it - I have too much fun with it and I rather showcase it.

The concept is these three cars are racing against each other in a lava pit filled with dragons. Dragons are shooting fireballs at the cars; far back, there's cars fried to a crisp while trying to jump over a platform. I also wanna compose a fiery sky so that it fits the mood and there's gonna be a lot of effects like motion blurring, lighting, textures etc.

Once done, it'll be resized down as a signature.

Thank you, sbred.


As for your sig, it looks okay. Nice red monotone and I like how you made the C4D as subtle as you could though I would suggest something more medieval background. Lights are good - it's sunlight, isn't it? The use of blur for depth is also good. I suggest experimenting with the Lens Blur filter to get a more realistic and popping result.

But the text isn't positioned correctly; it isn't 'clean'. Putting it at the side at a proper space might help. The color also doesn't match. It needs to be lighter so that it would not need any strokes or drop shadows.

Borders are also plain and common (read: boring). Could at least use some colors.

Overall, it looks quite the same as what most sig designers would do but it's still good.


Also, sbred. Take a look at sm312's post on previous page. Would you mind adding that to the first post? Treat it as an announcement. It's good to contribute to the Ubisoft community as ACB launches. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I would love it if someone could make me a nice sig. Obviously Assassins Creed related. I see alot of people here include characters from all their favorite games though so could you include a guy from Rainbow Six Vegas (my favorite shooter - they need to start making the next one btw http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif ), a assassin creeds guy in the middle, and on the right maybe a oh god idk... elf from shadowrun.

No can do. That sig officially belongs to DukeFirewood now, we can't simply copy it and change the name to yours. You need to come up with a unique idea.

Check the Sig Project thread, my post.

Oh, btw, Slime, further challenges will require NO HELP from me so you need to step up your game. This is what real designers do if given a task - they will have to find or create the resources themselves.

Made the flag and the wavy texture from scratch, it was tough http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/typing.gif

Congratulations sbred for creating the flag. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/clap.gif You have earned a skill that will be useful for graphic design.

I also see you have began to try distorting text and images to follow the airflow of the flag. Keep on experimenting and making it right. I see the text as looking very odd as if it has it own distortion. Study and use the Displacement Map (http://www.photoshopcafe.com/tutorials/dispmap/dispmap.htm) filter to get a more interesting result.

However, there is several mistakes that need to be fixed:

- The hole in the cloth where the blade is thrusted does not look convincing. Try looking at holes in fabrics. See the shadows it created, the form that is changed & the angle of light it reflects. Mimic that look and you'll have the idea how a hole in a cloth would look.

- While there is blood, it is not very noticeable. If you want to make it noticeable, you need to make the blood darker in color.

- Also, assuming that this is laid on a table, the shadow needs work. I suggest to study cast shadows. I know you're using Drop Shadow and it's time to take it one step further:

Right-click the effect on the Layers toolbox and select 'Create Layer...'
The effect (in this case Drop Shadow) will become a normal layer, complete with the opacity settings which you can edit
Transform the shadow according to light direction(s) (study about Light & Shadows in art)

That's it. It's that simple.

- Lastly, the image is cut-off at the left. This is a distraction for the viewers because the lines are sharp and the eyes are tend to see sharp things first.


Overall, a solid effort but there's always room for improvement. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif


Note: I know we all hate Cesare Borgia but that doesn't mean his name should be on the cloth like in my concept sketch. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/partyhat.gif

Whoa, alright, Slime! You've really improve since the last design! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

I like how the white cloth image is distorted perfectly. It may be a basic wave line but at least, it's accurate. The torn effect is quite nice and looked natural. It's different & better than the one you did on the requested Executioner flag.

Of course, as always, some suggestions to improve the works:

- I like the way you use the ink/blood splatter brush on both the blade and the cloth. However, if you want to make it realistic, you will have to blend or distort it and I know you use it to block the cloth's hole. Because of that, the image looks as if it's in motion.

- Because it appears in motion, therefore the shadow must be in motion as well, assuming as if the blade and cloth are very close to a wall.

- To make the wavy cloth even more realistic, I suggest studying lights & shadows in art. This is to create depth so that the image doesn't look too flat. I suggest (to all readers as well) to get, read or download Andrew Loomis books particularly his 'Successful Drawing' book. There's a chapter in the book about lights and shadows and while some of the designers here don't do drawings, it's still a recommendable reading and ALSO APPLIES in graphic design especially if the goal is realism.


Overall, a good improvement. Keep it up and remember, there's always room for improvement. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif



I wanna note something extra here:

In just mere weeks the first challenge had started, I've seen quite a difference & quality in both you, Slime, and sbred's sig designs. Congrats in both of you in improving but remember, there's still a lot to learn and this knowledge is not just for sigs but also for larger, harder & more time-consuming graphic designs.

Anybody who's interested in improving themselves in both sig & graphic design can take up my challenges. If these two guys can do it, any of you can too.

For this, I'd kicked the third challenge up a notch. It will be initiated soon but not within this week. I do want people to rest after each challenges are done.

To make the shadow in motion, just choose Blur > Motion Blur filter. Play with the angle; in this case go for 180?.


Also, Slime as well as everyone else, remember, as much as I'm willing to help, I can't always be at your back. What happens if I'm offline or something goes wrong with the internet connection?

You need to be alone so that you'll be more dependant and confident at your skills.

You need to play around with PhotoShop, subscribe to podcasts, buy designing magazines & books, read & watch tutorials from real experienced people or pros such as in Planet PhotoShop or Gnomon and very important, experiment!

If you fellas want to know, I did all this when I was new to designing and I still continue to do so.

In design, always experiment. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Hey there,

I've made an account especially for the awesome signature makers on this thread. I've been browsing around these forums for a while now and I thought it would be time to get my own.

So... here's my request.
The only thing I want in my signature is Dark Islands (unless you can add cool things http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif). You can use whatever theme you like (Assassins Creed, ...). Personally I prefer darker signatures BUT you have carte blanche and can make whatever you like.

Everyone is free to have a shot, so don't feel left out if someone is already working on it, since I'm active on multiple forums I'll also use multiple signatures.

Up for the challenge? Thank you so much for the time you want to spend on this!
