    Default Foundation of a Good Signature

    There are 4 main things you need to have a good foundation for a tag/signature. Here are the key points I will be going over:
    1. Lighting
    2. Depth
    3. Rule of thirds
    4. Control, Direction & Flow

    Lighting:
    Lighting is a key component in a good signature, you want to make sure you blend your render to make the background to make it fit in and look like it is supposed to be there, but then lighting comes into play. You want to make sure the lighting on your render has the same angles of lighting you have on your background. Also if your render needs a shadow because of the angle of the lighting, add a drop shadow.

    Depth:
    Think of depth in a signature as a camera focusing, its simply the ability to simulate distance. Just like a camera focuses on the thing you want it to which would be the render in the signature most likely, you want to try to do the same to your signature, selectively blur.

    Rule of thirds:
    This is very important when placing a render, you don't want the render to be centered or it won't look right, it will look like it was placed there, you want to create more tension and excitement in the picture by placing the render by how it would look in real life. Say if the render is leaning to the right put him of to the left a little.

    Control, Direction & Flow:
    This final step is probably the most important in making a good tag/signature. Flow is what brings out the colors and shadows. You want to have a good flow of direction and what is far away from the focal point should be less vibrant and noticeable then what is close to the focal point.

    If you apply these 4 things, everything else will come naturally. Like no joke. Lighting can actually be used for depth, and depth is nothing if the render placement is wrong and everything is just natural. Good post Wiz. Might sticky it .
