Roy Williams (odd style)

Postby joelamosobadiah » Mon Apr 02, 2007 9:44 am

OK, I did a Roy Williams sig and really just let loose late last night and went crazy and weird with a style I had never attempted before. I don't even know what style it is exactly. Anyway, I don't like it all that much, but am looking for any suggestions on how to improve on it. ;-D

Oh yeah, and the text is absolutely hideous, but I don't have the time to fix it right now and was a bit too tired to notice how ugly it was last night, so just kinda ignore that. :-D :-b

It is interesting.I would say that I think that his left arm(our right) looks like it has been cut off and he has a stump.I like the different color cross hatch design in the background and I would like to know how exactly you made it.I guess it's more like rectangles with maybe a screen brush on it??I also think I would try to make the Roy Williams part a little more readable but that isn't a big deal.I like the colors you chose...They match well with the Cowboys team colors.

Very cool looking effect, almost like a pointilism type thing going on there. I wouldn't change anything I think it has a good feel to it ;-D

his arms are too distorted and the color of the text doesnt match the rest of the sig.

LOL I was waiting for someone to say something about it. Not picking on ya Joel but that sig looks awful.

You couldn't pay me to wear it and I'm a Cowboys fan! :-b !+)

Move the pic up more and put that kind of effect under the pic itself. Text is way too blurry as well.

Ahhhh, I see, have to hide the criticism behind deluxe's big guns huh. :-[quote="South Park Cows"]on't care for it much either. I was just looking for something like this: VVV

Alright. I had just seen a lot of sigs with the grunge blur tool used on the player, but the more I worked on it the more it just looked like a big puke pile and not a cool effect. So anyway, that's why I posted it. I will post a variation sometime tonight if the game is boring enough. :-b


Thanks for all the comments guys. ;-D

(and I can make WAY better sigs than this.) :-b

Yeah looks like something I would do... :-b Pretty sucky.

Very different though, it's always interesting to play around. Never know when that kind of distortion will actually be useful to incorporate in another sig.

Contrary to it seems everyone else and minus the text I think you're onto something with the style there. I'd say work with it, maybe make a new one that is similar or something but I think it has potential to be a really cool style. I'm sick of the same sig styles over and over... I think it's refreshing to see someone try something out of the ordinary every once in a while. ;-D
