    Dedicated to all discussion on signatures, avvies, C4D's, and everything that can be made in Photoshop, Paint, or any program that can make these sorta things!

    K people, if we make this a hot topic, we might be able to convince the head honcho to make us our own sub-section....let's try our best.

    I'll start off with a couple of sigs i've made in the past, and some still to come in the future!

    Oh, and here are some great links to starting off your sig making career! All credits go to my friend, Wiired, for spending hours on finding all these!

    Prez did it. :D He's too cool....

    Anyways, ya, I know how. Would you like some tutorials?

    It's what my OP says it is. It's dedicated to sigs, avvies and the like. :)

    Ya, if you have any questions, demonstrate a technique you found at while playing around in PS, or just want us to rate your sig! Do it all here, plz!

    The bigger this thread becomes, the more I can convince (a.k.a. beg) i0n to make a sub-section dedicated to GFX.

    I started making sigs as you can see from that Shadow the hedgehog attempt.
    I stopped and gave it up though, when I realized I really sucked lol.

  13. seeing as how i still dont really have a decent sig, i gota learn how to make my own. this is a good thread to get ideas from although i doubt anything i do will come out decent lol.....sigh....

    anyways! great idea for a thread, not only will it help me attempt graphic design but it will enlighten other members to try it too and critique (the right way without spam) others too.

    Nah man, I like it. A little small, but if you could of made it a bit larger, and so it blended into the background a lil' better it could have been really nice!

    You shouldn't have given up. What did you use?

    Well I was using photoshop, and I was only halfway through that shadow project. I stopped because i got bored and I didn't really have a knack for it.

    That was the idea of it. :) Hopefully this will become a big enough reason to get our own section....

    I'm determined!
    I guess that's a whole different thing...I guess if you don't enjoy it, it's not worth doing. But, I digress, beginner's tutorials are VERY TEDIOUS. I almost quit, but my mentor kept telling me to keep on truckin'; lo' and behold, I love it now. One of my favorite things to do.
