This video recorded the carving process of an artist name seal for Tito James . For Chinese brush painting you need to a number of seals of various styles and sizes, and the seal is an important part of the signature; in fact, a signature is not complete without an appended seal impression. Some works are signed with seals alone. The most common seals are artist surname and formal name(Name Seal, or mingzhang) or intimate name or pseudonym(Ming or Hao seals) alone.

For Chinese name seals, you may use either square or oval shaped stones, positive or negative carving styles, ancient or modern scripts depending on your personal artistic tastes. Different sizes of seal maybe used depending on the size of signature calligraphy and also on the size of painting or the style of painting. A small seal can be used on large size paintings but large size of seal may not fit in small size painting.

To translate English names into Chinese art name, we could use both first and last names, or only a first or a last.
