Blended Signature Style ; as per request
All you need to know is how to use layer masks. Simple, right? No? Well then.
These type of signatures turn out better if you have high quality renders or screenshots.
It'll make sense for the screenshots to have the same background, wouldn't it? Otherwise it'll look out of place once you start blending.
You can start from the left to right, or right to left, or you can start from the middle.
Typically I start from the right and work my way over. If you find a better order, just rearrange the layers. example
You can sharpen it later. Type 'd' on your keyboard/pad to set your default colors to black and white.
Select your gradient tool, then click the layer mask option. example
Drag the gradient across the screenshot. If it looks weird, just keep on dragging until it looks right. example
Now select another screenshot and lay it over on top of the other one. Select layer mask. example
Make sure you're selected on the layer mask, not the screenshot. I've done that several times and I had to delete the layer and restart.
Now, drag it on the right side [vice versa if you're starting from the opposite side I did] example
I changed the order of the layers because it looked plain awkward. Plus, my backgrounds are different, which makes it look weirder. :c
Now repeat the process with more screenshots.
You're pretty much done with the blending part. Now all you need to do is sharpen the screenshots, add some adjustment layers,
maybe some text and a border if you feel like it.
I didn't finish it because I gotta go before my mom blows up like Mount Helen. But use brushes like tiny text, abstract, etc.
