OK

I figured out the blur and sharpen buttons. I have blurred everything except face in this. Now how did you get the fog around his weapon and the wispy light across his body/face? and what other fractal did you use?

You also changed the color slightly which I think was with sharpen perhaps.

OK ,, If you did what i write above , hmmmm

you didnt blure backgraund good , Blure it more , i guess you didnt fiand ripll hmm try to find liquifay or some like that and use it on backgraound only .
Duplicate layer
Go to Filters-Blur- Motion blur

Attached Image

put opacity on 40 ( or as you like it ) if need it erese all on render ( but just on render ) again blur background a bit ,
Now use Dodge toll ( put it on withe color ) soft light oacity 10 ( or what you like ) and make a light from adge of his stick to his head ( but not much) than use Burn toll ( put it on black color) opacity 10 and burn backgraund as you like ( make it more darcker ) .

tbh lol now i forgot what i did next if i did something more , but i think i didnt ..
didnt take any pictures also i forgot hehehhe , well i had some problems on forums with some guys and i culd be demoted so i forgot what and how i do next thing here lolll but i think this will be all on this sig ,, just try and play a bit with lightning , filters , try things ...

well that depend , how you like , or you try it and when you think you like it , do it tongue.gif You dont need to ripple much , just a bit to effect be visible on some point .. if you dont like it on some point just erese it , after you post what you made , find other render as i said and make sig with all what we did b4 , normaly background make depend on what kind of render you will take , or what you have on your minde ..

Ok much better

second one is better , but you didnt use all what i write and what you learn from links witch i post .
So ( no hard feelings) make it again and use all what we use till now , when you use it all and good , than we goin on other things .

just remember you can erese what you dont like on every effects , also add more C4Ds to cover empty spaceses on left and right ( i wont tall you how and what, i want to see what you will make ) , blend more render, dont forget to blur BG , sharp render , lightning, , (FLOW we didnt learn ), use burn tool to burn a bit ( darker) parsts, use gradiends, filters, Be free to experimenting things , take a look some parst from tutorials , from video links, than all mix up in sig , but not to be messy ... try it .

You will need to make many sigs till you finally find your way , etc , But i can tall you you are on good way .

PS
dont make BG as you mad it on your firs sig , its not good and its only working on some sigs but its rere.

if you have any question how to make something or anything what is not clear to you till now .ASK and ill help you out .. Hmm like things ::

Ok this is my BG and render on it , i want to make it this way ---- and i want to add some effects to be something like ------ .. than i know what you want to make , and i can help you ..

So what you want me to do next?
1) show you a background, then render and each step ?
2) Use Lightning effect?

Btw,I thought I used every step last. laugh.gif
