Here's a signature tutorial, sized at around 400x150, and involves color editing, some brush work, and some texture work. It's designed for beginners who are interested in working with color edits and putting together a simple signature from a picture. It's a little longer due to more further explanation and extra tips as well through personal experience. Feel free to use to get ideas and inspirations for your own creations. <3 Enjoy!
