Like you said yourself, the text isn't exactly the best choice, and the render lacks depth, and it needs to be merged into the sig, so it doesn't look like it was just pasted on. The background is hot, however.

I was thinking that about the render. Would you have any suggestions about how to do that possibly? xD I liked your pun by the way.

Update:

I used a different tutorial but I do think this is a lot better. CnC please.

That looks great! ^^; Who's tut did you use?

I love the gradient on the exploding background. Great use of C4D's. Do you have a link to the render that you used?

Depth shows that, ugh, it's hard to explain. It's best to use an example and not define it. Like, a background is blurred because depth gives the impression that it's far away, and faraway things you can't see clearly. Close up things are usually sharpened to make it more clear, as you can see things better up close. So typically, the image has the background, the render, then the foreground on top. The foreground I personally like to do is take a nice C4D that goes with the flow of the tag and place it on top of the render, but I erase parts in front of the face and more important parts of the render. For example, the tag in your signature, I made the foreground by adding C4D effects over Zorua around the bottom and back of Zorua. I also sharpened Zorua, because he's not in the background. That makes depth. If you already knew what depth was, then now you now my style of applying it to a tag.

Your current tags are nice, but there's no depth around the render as said before. Some more foreground effects would be nice too. I think on the Chimchar one you should move the text closer to Chimchar, crop it a bit, and add some matching foreground effects. I really like your two current tags, you're starting way better than me. My first tag was way worse. It's linked in here just so you can compare, but my point is that if you start pretty good like this then you'll end up pretty good, it took me over a year and a half to get good enough to make tags like that. I hope you succeed, soon enough you'll be making your own tags for your signature :p

I was so happy to see that you'd stopped by. Thanks so much for the CnC, I really get what you're saying about depth and I never really noticed that about Zorua but when I look at it again, you're right, his head looks almost popping out but not the back. Thanks so much, and haha you give me a lot of hope by saying that I'm starting off really well.

Oh and I will use what you said to edit my Chimchar tag because i've recently learned all about c4ds.

Oh and I do appreciate your CnC but I'd like it if you didn't just ask about stuff for you. I am glad to help though.

Update:

This is my first tag without a tutorial. I didn't use any c4ds and i'm not sure if there's anything I should do with it. Any and all CnC would be greatly appreciated.

I think I know why you like your Shaymin one. It's got the best flow out of all your tags, making it appealing :3 The same thing applied with your Mewtwo tag before. It's text is really great, awesome placement, color, size, whatever the hell I can think of, it looks good with the text lol. The reason this one is more appealing than the Mewtwo one is because you chose a render that actually goes with the flow. In the Mewtwo tag there's a flow in the background, but the render was like, seperate. You should always make the flow go in the direction of the render.

You're tag that says 'Weezy' on it (I don't know what it is, so I'll call it your Weezy tag lol) Kinda shows that you need more work on depth and C4Ds. First of all, C4Ds, I don't think they look good when used as a background effect, C4Ds are supposed to be used as foreground effects, an art pro can correct me if I'm wrong, but even if it doesn't matter it looks alot better as a foreground effect. I think for a background you should try making a gradient, then throwing on some brushing, put in your render, and make a foreground out of C4Ds and minimal brushing. Then I like to put a fancy border, lol. I actually noticed that you made nice borders on the Chimchar and Shaymin tag, and honestly I'm obsessed with borders so you might not want to listen to me when I say a tag needs a border. Just use your judgement, lol. A border would be very nice. What? Oh yeah. Continuing, you want to crop extra space, but not all of it. You don't want to crop so much empty space the tag will look like a square, lol.

This summer tag (Reminds me, today's the last day of school, in twenty minutes I'm going to school then going to a party ;D yay me!) has some problems. Like, the colors don't match up in the background, and again, all you have is a background and no foreground. I'm not going to go on too much from here though, because I explained it in the other descriptions. Remember, the Shaymin tag has a flow in a certain direction. Find out how you did that, make it apply to your tags in the future. Maybe I'll explain a little bit more about this in the future. For now, gotta go to school.

Work on a tag with something OTHER than an abstract background.
Your renders look slapped on.
Try themed tags, like seasons, or nature. BTW YOU SEEM LIKE HIPSTER TRASH.
Look into more tutorials, try to go into more difficult tutorials to grasp skills and techniques.
