    Arts and Creativity. Plenty of sig shops over there more than willing to make stuff for you free of charge.

    Use http://planetrenders.net for all of your render needs. They'll have something you'll like most of the time.

    DeviantArt has tons of nice brushes and c4ds.

    Stock you can get from sites like http://www.sxc.hu/ or something. Some people redistribute stock packs that you can snag and find some goodies.

    An excellent tutorial would be this one. Shows you the basics of composition, flow, lighting, colors, pretty much a little of everything.

    I mean, signatures are, in the end, a form of art. Like all forms of art, the only thing someone can really teach you is the technique, and then it's up to you to throw your own style and twist on it.

    That's a solid attempt at that tutorial. In general terms, it's poor (to put it more lightly than those above).

    The problem with sigtutorials is that they throw a bunch of easy tutorials at you, but none of them explain the basics of sigs.

    To improve the latest one you posted, you'll need to learn the rule of thirds and master it. It dictates placement. Here, you chose to put it at the far left. This leaves a lot of empty space, which is bad. The ideal placement for most focals is a little left/right of the very center of the tag. Your text should be close to the focal, but not detracting.

    You did a good job of text in regards to the render; it isn't detracting on its own part, and you grasp the concept of text that fits in with the focal.

    I don't know what the big dark blob is to the right of the render, but it makes the sig look worse. Get rid of it if you can.

    Again, the problem with sigtutorials is that they don't offer every basic concept signature-makers need to know. I recommend you join a decent graphics community. Most of them offer resources, tutorials, and some kind of school or learning program.

    Keep it up, you'll be better in no time :smile.gif: It took me exactly one tutorial to go from
    this to this.

    In Minecraft, rocks conveniently break in cubes half the size of your body.
    In Minecraft, you don't have to set up wooden posts every 5 feet to prevent cave-ins.
    In Minecraft, you don't die slowly and painfully by exhaling dust.
    etc.
