I've decided to make a signature making tutorial. I will add-on to make different signatures, including the one I have myself, but this is a total beginner's signature, easy, fast and good looking.
Warning: This tutorial is made only for Adobe Photoshop Cs3 and above.
Here is what the final outcome looks like:
Render I used: http://i757.photobucket.com/albums/xx213/Pigler/polarbearcopy.jpg
Font I used: http://www.dafont.com/search.php?psize=m&q=Sell+your+soul
First, go to File>New and choose, approx, 370 width and 130 height.
Then, open up your render, move it to the New file and duplicate it two times. Hide one of the copies, and make the Original render and one copy cover the full New file. Then, merge the copy to the original render.
Go to Smudge tool, set the settings to all with Jitter to 100%, Minimum Roundness to 25% and scattering to approx. 0,5 cm from the start of the line. Smudge the merged render's until it cannot be seen its a bear anymore. (the brush you must use looks like a square and its size is 36).
Then, un-hide the bear render. If you think its too big, Hold Ctrl+T+Shift and resize it then move it to where you want it.
Again open the smudge tool and smudge the bear's edges just a little bit, so it matches the background.
Then, when you think its good, add your text. If you will do a name+quote, make the name BIGGER than the quote and make the text be well visible.
I would LOVE to see your outcomes, so please post them here (note that ANY render will do, this is just a example on how to make a easy signature).
Have fun and,
(this is made by clipping masks. I will add a tutorial on that some other time)
