    Shake's Showcase

    Having used Photoshop for 5 or so years, I consider myself to be someone who's passable at GFX, not perfect, not bad but passable. The GFX community here is really cool so I think it's time I made this thread for me to continue to add pieces of work to. You will have seen most of what is posted in here in some SOTW comps. But, i'll start doing sigs regularly and I will also be open to any requests that people have - although I will state that I am not someone who pumps out 20 sigs every week, I try my best to get the job done in a punctual manner. I used to have loads of sigs but unfortunately, my old PC broke and the only place I posted them on has since went down and so I've had to rebuild. I wish there was away to get them back but alas, there's not so fuck life. I also do multiple versions of my sigs just because I'm a bit of an ass like that.



    Here's my collection of work thus far (Mostly SOTW work) but expect at least 2 more to be added in by the weekend for sure:

    CHVRCHES


    IGGY AZALEA




    SOURCE CODE/JAKE GYLLENHAAL


    DEAD SPACE


    SUSAN COFFEY/XMAS (was supposed to be a SOTW entry)






    PETER PETRELLI



    CHRISTY HEMME


    Lauren from CHVRCHES



    Demi Lovato
    Normal Version


    Special Version


    CALVIN HARRIS



    Lumina


    Sami Zayn Avatar made for Flex



    Hiroshi Tanahashi - different brightness levels, check bottom right corner.





    RENA








    Any feedback etc is appreciated and if you do want a sig, feel free to either PM me or post here. I also may be willing to make some tutorials or at least make my PSDs available with labelled layers so people can see how I make my sigs.

    Great work Shakey, I'm no GFX expert so cant point out all the great things you've done, but they look good to me.

    Thanks to Jabberwocky for the amazing Gabrielle gif

    Re: Shake's Showcase

    I'd never noticed before, but seeing them all together like this, you're work has a very definite style to it that is uniquely yours; at least to me it is. I think that I'd be able to look at something of yours without being told it was yours and say quite confidently; "That's Shake's work". I like that you've put the different options for Iggy and Susan Coffey as well, because while I personally like the first one of each (they seem lighter in tone and have more discernible colour to them) others may prefer the other, darker ones. Good stuff.

    That's quite a compliment, thanks! Actually, Iggy was the first sig to use that style as I only just started utilising Smudging (somethign I knew how to do but something I didn't quite enjoy) but eventually it's become a staple as I find that the more you do it, the easier it becomes. The different options stem from ideas I have and is applied to where it'd suit the sig. I like to utilise a technique where I make colours stand out whilst the rest is black and white - something that I really liked for the Coffey sig.

    I'll end up putting all the PSDs up for download at some point incase people want to see any various tips and tricks that I use. Thanks for the feedback, dude!


    And cheers ETE, you don't frequent GFX too much so any input from you is appreciated!

    Your work is pretty good, and as mentioned, your style is pretty unique.

    Although I'm not really a fan of that style.

    I've got no idea who Susan Coffeey is but I love the banners. I'm not sure if I prefer the first or third though.

    I see what you mean. Sometimes I do that. Thanks for the compliment!

    Cheers, Benoit, I understand - some people have different tastes and i'm no exception, sometimes I am not a fan of my work but other people are.

    And Whiskey, SUP! But seriously, thanks, Susan Coffey is my wife to be. Redheads united.

    Like, I especially love that you made a Dead Space sig. I'm a huge DS mark, but you can barely make Isaac out. I like and dislike it at the same time.

    Re: Shake's Showcase

    Fair enough dude.

    Anyways, bumping this thread because I have got my PC working again and my photoshop back so I am going to be busting out some sigs over the coming days. Right now, I am working on a CHVRCHES piece then I will probably do some other things. Having to redownload all my brushes and shit is annoying as fuck.

    Great to hear, can't wait to see the CHVRCHES sigs considering it one of the groups I started following this year. I think I might need to get back into graphics, all I'm doing these days is gifs, and sometimes avatars for people here.

    I don't know how to do GIFs at all, and avatars are too small for me to work with. I will look into doing them in the future for sure. I am just trying to get back in the groove of using Photoshop and so on. Got that creative itch. It's always fun to mess around, never know what you might create.

    Re: Shake's Showcase

    Ok, finally sorted my internet and PC issues. Made this a while back but didn't have time to post. It went a bit tits up halfway through and I had to redo parts. I am satisfied with the end result. Not great, not bad, in my opinion of course.



    Once i've made a few more, I will put up a PSD pack for download - I don't have time to write tutorials but I will label every layer so you'd have a basic idea of what's going on.

    I think they are all quite private people, have quite a nervous stage presence I find.

    Anyways, I have no idea what to do next for a sig. Trying to find an interesting stock.

    Re: Shake's Showcase

    Updated with two versions of a new sig. I didn't really intend to do a sig on Demi Lovato - initially it was going to be Ke$ha as i was looking for a good stock photo of her then I heard 'Neon Lights' play and decided Demi would do. The first version is the point I got to where I decided that I was happy with it. I was going to do more with it but decided that it looked ok with me. Only now, i've noticed that her face is a tad sharp but shit happens, I am a bit too tired to bother fixing it. The second version is just something I was experimenting with and I thought that I may as well just post it.

    Here they are:

    Re: Shake's Showcase

    Love both equally. If it was a subject I could get behind, I'd actually use one of them. Really great work. Might be my favorite of yours.
