I haven't done anything in over a year, so this sig took way too long to do. I thought I'd try out a tutorial and maybe some 2D tech work.

Without 2D tech work and text

Edit: Fixed sharpening a bit...

I really like it, depth is nice and the colors are intriguing. I'd say the first is best because of the creative effects/typography.

Stock might be a little sharp but otherwise I like it. Your typography is wonderful, by the way.

Damn C4, I haven't seen you in a lifetime. And I myself decided to randomly visit. Proof that you knew me back when, you were obsessed with that 1 Korean? singer, she was in all your tags.

REnder is a little LQ, but other than that, very nice.
Blame it on Square xD. It's likely due to a combination of sharpening, brightening and shrinking the original 720p screenshot.

Definitely agree with the over sharpening. I was trying the high pass sharpening technique for the first time, and I didn't mask and tweak the opacity very well.

lol ya... BoA. Sadly, I don't remember who you are????

Background was done with some soft brushing and then smudging it with a 20-30px default hard round pixel brush with approximately 90% strength. It's kind of hard to do the smudging with a mouse. I had tons of trouble getting it smooth enough for my liking. If you want more details PM me.

Anyways I fixed the sharpening a bit. I'm just surprised how different the colors look when I view it on my configured monitor and on my laptop. >.> It should look more pink than purple.
