I'm slowly getting the hang of sigs, methinks...

Great work anyway. I loooove your sigs.
Heh, now everytime I see one of your sigs, I feel compelled to make one ;(

Damn, that's actuallly how I feel when I see one of your sigs. Does that mean an endless spiral of competition, or something?

Okay, I'm revising the sig a bit. I promise a second version by the end of the evening.

It's taken a few hours, and two revisions, but here it is!

How do you make those sig backgrounds, and how do you make the text glow? Those are very good sigs. I especially like the one you just did.

Well, the backgrounds are made by creating your own brushes and then playing about with clouds, opacity, layer modes and blurs. It's pretty hard to explain, but my advice is to experiment.

The text glow is easy. Script fu -> (not sure what next, it's definitly the second one along) -> Alien Glow

How do you put the text in the sig? I did the alien glow thing and it just made my image smaller and the text didn't look like yours. Thank you gold.

:O Awesome! Dude, are those brushes already installed on GIMP? Or do you get them from somewhere? Where do you get your backgrounds?

Haku from Naruto. Reading a few tutorials helped.

Those are really good! I have never seen such details in the background. I do agree with John Cena on the upper corner. Perhaps you could put a description or quote in those spaces, such as "Master of [insert element/ name here]. Anyway, it's very good! 9.5/10

I tried to put a quote from a song in there, but the font didn't really look right.

I wonder when Agent Waffles will return, if ever? He had pretty amazing sigs.

for song lyrics, nice fonts are georgia, times, and arial. Yay defaults. Some cursive font like carpenter is good as well. Try fading the edges and lowering the opacity too.

As much as I despise using default fonts, I think it turned out okay.

*drum rollls*

I actually attempted to creat art without a mouse. Here are the results:

Psychic Mage Knight - He's only psychic because I messed up the eyes, so I had to put in a blindfold. Not my proudest work, I'd say, and I've learnt to stick to lineart from now on.

Meditating Evil Person - I took the lessons from the Psychic Mage Knight and applied them here. Closed eyes: cheating, but fun! I'm not entirely sure what gender to give this, but I suppose the eyelashes veer it towards 'female'. To my credit, these ARE the first realistic (in the sense that they're not stick figures) humans I've ever drawn.

..and some old stuff that I haven't posted yet, or at least, I don't remember posting.

Lugia - My first ever from-scratch drawing. Everything before this was done when I was 6 and from one of those "How to Draw" books.

Hoothoot - Various comments on other forums regarding this include "It looks like it wants to murder someone" and "It has the eyes of a killer". I'm happy that I conveyed that much emotion into this little guy!

I luv the eyes on the Psychic Mage Knight! But what is the brown beneath the blindfold? The picture wouldnt load all of the way. (Curse you dial-up!!)
And the hoothoot is cool. I dont get the murdery part. I think the lugias leg is a little strange, but then again, i've never seen a lugia.
