    This time, I used Deep Dive, added some text using a certain awesome font, blurred some pics, didn't blur some. All the same but slightly different, and I wan't your opinion on which is the best.

    The original image
    Warning: Spoilers inside!
    Darkened
    Warning: Spoilers inside!
    Even more darkened
    Warning: Spoilers inside!
    Original w/ text blur
    Warning: Spoilers inside!
    Blurred darkened
    Warning: Spoilers inside!
    Blurred really dark
    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    So, there is a huge amount here, which of these should I use?

    The Original w/ text blur is the best one there i'd say, could use with a border and a stroke around the text to make it more visible, but good attempts.

    It being darkened makes it look like it's bad on the eyes/alot of contrast

    So yeah, original text with blur

    Really? The ava was not original. And the sig was, just another attempt you see. Or are you referring to the one by luke_c?

    EDIT: Just in case anyone was wondering, the font I used was Evanescent. The font of the band Evanescence. If anyone is interested in using it, look here: http://www.dafont.com/evanescence.font

    To tell you the truth, I'd choose the original image or the original blurred image over everything else but I feel you can do better then this. I hope to see more work from you Kingdom Blade. [​IMG]

    It's good but again, I feel you can do a lot better then this. It wouldn't hurt to throw in a C4D or two in there.

    A 3D render, usually created within Cinema 4D, but other programs (3d Studio Max, Maya) can also be used.

    A C4D is a render that instead of being used for for display, gives effects or amplifies the background of art. My avatar for example uses C4Ds, you can see a sort of "ray" coming out of his hat and around it.

    And yeah, Law got it right too.

    Here are a bunch of C4D resources you can use.

    Some are, some aren't. I put all the C4Ds on color dodge layers and lower the opacity cause like I said, they are only to be used for effect.

    Start a new one from scratch, take your time, and make it look nice, at the moment your sig and avatar are a bit meh.

    It was in one of those threads where you announce a new avatar created. It was that one with a stock image? I told you to add stockimages and you said alright leme try... Then you made it... I think the person was Sora...
