Stocks (http://www.imageafter.com/)

03-12-2007, 10:22 AM
ImageAfter is a great site, I love using their stuff in my sigs. Koopa, if you want more Steelers PSD's check out www.surrealdesignz.com and www.psdcentral.net . I also have a bunch that I cut out myself if you want some of them to use.

Koopa
03-12-2007, 02:47 PM
i still don't know wtf they are for, they seem pretty damn pointless to me lol

BlitzburghRockCity
03-12-2007, 02:56 PM
Stocks are just basic images that you use for backgrounds in your sigs. Obviously if you're making one like Train does, you don't use stock images much but for your basic sigs that most people make, you need some type of background. You get a stock image, use it as your 1st layer and tweak it how you want with lighting effects, blending, brushes, etc. then start making more layers with players, text, etc.

oh i see......i guess i better learn how to mess with them, cause you sig kicks *** and i'm guessing that's a stock???????? lol

BlitzburghRockCity
03-12-2007, 04:41 PM
The one I have now was actually just an image I found on the net, but it worked out great to add my bike to it. You can really see the difference in what different options of blending and lighting effects can do to sig for example look at these I made before. Both the same background but notice the difference in effects and how much it changes it.

Most of my sigs use a stock image from imageafter and then I add layers to it with images, players, people, logo's, lighting effects, brushes, etc. to make each one unique. If you looked at a stock image and then saw it in somebody's post, you'd probably have a hard time believing that the finish product started with that stock. It really all depends on what look you're going for as to how you add effects to it; old school looks, rugged, smooth, bright, matte, there's no wrong way to make a sig. If you like it, then that's all that matters.

basically yes, they are just generic photos of anything from nature, to mechanical stuff, cars, chains, buildings, designs, you name it.

just go to www.imageafter.com and view some of them, you'll get a good idea that way.

You might use a bit bigger image of Troy to help fill it in,and add some shadow/highlights to it but it's not bad, you did a nice job with it.

here's one i made for me to use at a basketball site, he's called the red rocket cause he has red hair, and because when he played for the raptors, he didn't buy a car he would walk to the stadium, or take the red rocket tram, so the fans gave him that nickname (he didn't buy a car when he played there because he's a business major, and he doesn't like to buy stuff that loses value right when you drive it off the lot) he has a car now, cause san antonio roads are crazy, no way you can just walk are take the public transportation and get where you got to go on time

the pic in the background is obviously the red rocket tram

the respect his hustle part is because, he is nothing but hustle, he's not fast, he doesn't jump high, he's not very muscular, but he plays with so much passion and hustles on every possession it makes up for all of that
