    A Beginner's Showcase

    [top]D1mech's Beginner Showcase


    Banner Coming Soon! Everything is still under construction.

    [top]About Me


    Well, I started trying out sigs and digital art on October the 17th and instantly liked it. I remember the 1st time I got interested I asked TheGeneral09 and the GGA about tips and whatnot. They were very helpful, and that is how I started out. I literally knew nothing about digital art, but I followed some basic YouTube videos, experimented etc.. and started to try out new stuff. My current tool of the trade is GIMP. Thank you for visiting this showcase.

    [top]Forum Signatures and Other Digital Art




    [top]My First Ever Signature: Uncharted.





    This right here is my first sig. Well, if you can call it that I remember showing it to TheGeneral and Chambers; they both gave me some great tips to improve and I continued from there. It's a very basic sig, and anyone can make it. To this day though, I have no idea on how I created that background, lol



    [top]Commander Shepard





    This was probably my 3rd sig. I was quite happy with the result; had downloaded some brushes and experimented with those; it's decently nice, but overall has bad lighting. For a 3rd sig, I was quite happy though Also started using C4D's here and to this day I am still finding different uses for them.



    [top]Yoshi.





    This sig is one of my favorites to date. I followed a Tutorial pretty closely. Well the result is actually of less quality than that of the tutorial. But nonetheless I was still pretty happy with the result. I followed it really closely since I was just a beginner and learned some key stuff. That light splash at the bottom is a great addition and lights up the sig brilliantly.

    That dragon one is sick man I just think you need to add lighting to the work you make. Other than that, you are golden. Great job!

    No way would I guess you're a beginner dude. These are some nice pieces for sure. I especially like the Iron Man and Dragon sigs.
