Obviously if you have Intershit Explorer 6 this won't look right.

Whaddya think? Of course the scout layer has motion blur applied. The background images are given a gaussian blur, faded into eachother with a reveal all mask, and overlaid with a pattern. Also they have minor content-aware scaling applied to make them fit just right in the borders.

The word bonk is a smart object which is distorted, warped, rotated, and has a low opacity.

My name has several effects, namely a master "soft light" blending mode to make it partially transparent and a stroke/satin/gradient overlay/outer glow.

The text below my name is un-anti-aliased and stroked 1px. The font is "Visitor," the same font used for making userbars.

Looks good but who is that ? Also just adding a plain blurred bakcground to all of your previous sigs and also this one doesn't look nice, you are not at all making new ideas !

Try a bit brushing with some abstract brushes. Use of pen tool on the bat............etc,etc.

The other scout one you had looked better, IMO. The composition just seemed alot nicer.

Smart objects ftw though :P

No, I actually prefer the old one most of the time. I play 2fort a lot so double jumping is useful with the bridge in the middle. However on maps without a lot of vertical space, the new bat is a lot nicer. But I think his taunt (which I recorded for the sig) is better with the old bat.

Pen tool on that bat? Wat?

The blurred background's purpose is to indicate the class "popping out of" the background...that they are in the scene but it is behind them. Also this sig has a transparent pattern overlay on the background which the older ones don't.

Chris you are such a Team Fortress fanboy :P. WTG with the Internet Explorer nickname. Oh and BTW I'm using the updated version of Mozilla Firefox and the top of it is just blurry.

ABSTRACT BRUSHING IS NOT NEW. IT DOES NOT AUTO-WIN OR AUTO-COOL. HELL, IT ISN'T EVEN TRENDY ANYMORE.


FUCK people, learn something besides brushing all the time.

Pen tool = effects, lolwut?

And DAMMIT. That isn't a render. Well, technically... It is.... But not because he cut it out.


Personally, I like the theme, but it's too blurry for me. I prefer Sappin.Your.Sentry.

There is no "freedom of speech" in forums, yes you can say what you want but in the end what the mods say gos. This is not a democracy.

Can't double jump with the new bat, bugger.
Staying on topic, Try adjusting the levels and curves a bit in the a bit, should make him stand out from the background.

Yeah well the new bat could be used with the force of nature. Because the FAN has a knockback, you can sort of use it to "double" jump, but the FAN sucks in every other way so I just roll the scattergun, energy drink, and regular bat.

That doesn't mean the unlocks don't produce hilarious results, however.
