    The 2nd one looks the best out of all . The first and 3rd one needs more light they look to plain.

    Would you make a tutorial on how to smudge like the one on the Killzone.

    #1 is probably my favorite. It's a little dull, and could use some vibrance. I also think there should be more visible smudging to the right of his head, between the head and leaf.

    The flow in the venom signature seems off, and there's no texture and it feels like there could be some more lighting.

    The killzone one is alright, I don't like the text though. Good idea, but bad font. And the effects around the render are too sparse to really show without looking messy imo.

    The noise in sig #4 is way too white, and I'm not a big fan of the smudge.

    The last one is pretty good imo, I just can't really tell much about the render without looking at it multiple times. That's the only issue I have. Not enough detail.

    Over all keep it up, these are pretty good. Work on blending your render, and flow.

    1. Render looks to pasted on top to me, I would have some smudges coming off of it.

    2. Looks like you used the liquify filter on the background, could try erasing some of the renders edges to make him blend in.

    3. I would just bring out the color in it more.

    4. Random smudge here throws me off

    There is other things but I am not going to repeat what austin said, so I am kind of building off of that.

    1st Sig : There isn't any Texture in the smudge which really does make your smudge tags a whole lot better. It also has bad blending, all you gotta do to fix that is smudge with the render and with similar colors closer to it (I still need to work on that).

    2nd Sig : Blending again, mainly because of the black outline around the render. It also has no light source or depth really. I like the text a lot though.

    3rd Sig : Probably my favorite of them all. It's got good flow, it blends in & all the colors fit. Only complaints on this tag is the text, the colors of it could have been better. I also think if you put the text in the top left or bottom right then it could look good.

    4th Sig : It's very messy and I can't see where a whole lot of the effects and smudge are, this is mainly because of the stars/dots that you used. Set them to screen or lower the opacity and clipping mask a Photo-filter to it so that it is the same color.

    5th Sig : Same as the 1st one really. Just add more texture and smudge a background as well that fits with the render so that it blends, don't just use a single color.


    They are all nice signatures though man, keep it up and hopefully you keep getting better at your smudging.

    You can tell you are testing the waters of smudging. Now that you know the basics and looking to improve, stay away from tutorials. Think of when you are smudging, in a perspective of a painter. Typically, painters don't just have diagonal strokes, they have a variety of abstract strokes and different shapes in their paintings to make them come alive. Practice smudging more with a hard brush and don't forget to sharpen. Experimenting is key.
