It's so beautiful... Can't wait to see the finished thing when it already looks like this. I prefer the first one ^^ The lines fit imo.

After being a Photoshop noob for the longest time, I was able to finally make something that doesn't make my eyes bleed decent from studying your works.

Feedback would be appreciated :)

@Sylinchen Thanks for pointing that out \o/

It does seem way too red honestly, so I tried using Color Balance to make it look more even. Does this look better?

It's ok but you changed the whole color. If you wanna try just changing the red color try the tools "selective color" and "Hue / Saturation", these have an option where you, for example, can change only the reds into something.
For example:

Wow, that looks amazing! I've actually been ignoring the "Selective Color" tool since I thought it only brings minor changes, but looks like I'll have to start practicing with it now XD

Thanks again!

That's a pretty good effort! One improvement I could think of is to make the color scheme more varied, since it looks like the same type of blue was used for the entire sig. More colors will make it look prettier :)

Took quite a long break from GFX, so I tried making something today. My typography sucks rip ><

Well! I know you already deleted the image but there was something I still wanted to point out, seeing you do it with your made Sig, too.

No matter what you do in graphic design, you never, ever distort and deform an image so that it looks crammed and deformed.
When it doesnt fit, take another picture or take space from somewhere else but thats just a thing that shouldnt happen in the first place because no matter how beautiful your effects are and how much work youve put into, it will always look horrid with a smushed image in it.

Other than that, your profile actually looked really well made for a first try so keep on training!

Ahhh I knew it, still having typography problems until now T_T
I tried several designs from the Sans and Sans-serif family, but they all ended up looking blurry when the text is too small, unfortunately...

Mmm just curious, but what font did you use for the supplementary text in your sig? Maybe I can use that instead :')

Thanks for your thoughts! \o/

The font style that you're using for your bodies is fine, but it looks a little fuzzy, so try changing the anti-aliasing so it's a bit more legible, granted that I'm near-sighted so if it looks sharp to everyone else, then never mind. But for sure, I would take the font size of your gaming IDs down a few point sizes since the anime girl with the red and blue flowers in her hair could use some breathing room from your Discord tag. And maybe you could find a more attractive looking serif font that you're using for "Please sit back and enjoy the show". I mean, I guess slab serif works though I personally don't like slab serif fonts, but there might be an option out there that's feels more "in place" with the rest of the composition.

Thank you, this is all really helpful!

The body texts do look kinda fuzzy tbh, but that's probably because my Stroke effect is only 2 pixels wide. I find that wider Strokes make the font look cleaner, but then the outlines end up looking too "fat". I'll probably use Topaz clean on them to make them smoother.

I definitely agree about the Discord font being too close to the left chibi. On the other hand, I like the current font size for my gaming IDs since they fill the bottom space nicely, so I'll try adjusting the kerning first and see if that works.

I'll keep in mind about what you said about the font choice for my large caption at the top, but I honestly love it so it's rather unlikely I'll change it tbh :)

So I ended up changing the font for my supplementary texts and voila, the layout looks better already! Will implement some more changes tomorrow.

Honestly, the only fault I saw was with whatever anti-aliasing setting you were using for the pixel font, whether it's either sharp or crisp. Don't need Topaz to adjust that. Just open up the Character window and play around with the anti-aliasing setting.

But now that I think about it: The text on MAL profile designs is just there to look pretty and fill the space, as opposed to needing to be legible so it can be read clearly which is something that college level graphic design classes have drilled in my head for years, the barely readable pixel font works from a display perspective since you're covering up some of the words anyway.

I definitely agree about the Discord font being too close to the left chibi. On the other hand, I like the current font size for my gaming IDs since they fill the bottom space nicely, so I'll try adjusting the kerning first and see if that works.

I still think that going one pixel smaller (not point size smaller since I forgot that Photoshop mostly speaks in pixels not point sizes like Illustrator and InDesign) should work; at least enough space to match the space between your PlayStation ID and... whatever service to the right of that is supposed to represent.

I'll keep in mind about what you said about the font choice for my large caption at the top, but I honestly love it so it's rather unlikely I'll change it tbh :)

At the end of the day, it's your profile, though the slabs are actually growing on me.

Thank you, this is all really helpful!

Sure thing. Good to know that paying half attention to typography lectures was good for something.

The text would be great if it was in one color, specifically white and placed above her hip(?). I'd add some more color adjustments as well. In rest, is pretty cool *o*

@Skittles I love it, I like your choice of color and placement of highlights. It's also not too bright which i think makes it more easy on the eyes >3>
