I've got some advice. Try to use different fonts, other than that, your sigs are great.

FRAUD!!!!

No Im joking man :lol: you can see how much difference a really good font makes. I prefer to muck around with contrast and colours and just add a really sick font in. The 3rd font looks the best imo. Keep it up.

I like the Arjen Robben one :wink: Its really good.

What version of Gimp do you have? I have 2.4.2 and I have absolutely no idea how to do layers. Theres no layer box. How do you do layers, I seriously have no idea.

If the layer box doesn't pop up automaticlly then you have to go to the main gimp box-file-dialogs-layers and it should pop up. I learned to use layers threw tutorials, but basiclly the only real hard part is figuring out how to blend them, but it's acctrually simple. you just click on the mode tab in the layers box, and select screen (soft and hard light work to). I'll try to find some tutorials and if I find any good one's I'll pm them to you.

I know there has to be an easier way then what I did but here it goes.

1. I found the pic I wanted and opened it with gimp, and sized it to the size I wanted.

2. I saved it (in color) then opened the same pic in a different windows. (there are four color parts I cut out.)

3. I cut out the jersey

4. I went to colors-desaturate-average (this made it black and white.)

5. I pasted the jersey and moved it into the correct space.

6. on the other window I cut out the sock's (for both feet, 3 total cuts) and pasted them on the main pic in the correct spots.

and the sig you see was the end result, I think the orange is what makes it look good. and once again thanks H2H for the sig style, and for the font site.


and as always all sigs posted in this topic are up for grabs.

Hey 2brown347 if you answer this you're the best. How do you add a render? Like, after you've made the background, how do you put the player in? I still dont fully understand layers. Thats all I really to know.

In your sig it should be "than" instead of "then". :P
How do you like my interpretation of your style in my sig? :P

Damn :oops: , it's to late now. :?

It's a pretty simple, clean style but you should give credit to H2H. I found a faster, cleaner way of doing it though.

1. paste the pic you want
2. make one copy of that layer
3. make the original layer black and white
4. on the copy (which should still be color, make a path like you would to cut out the part you want.
5. when you are ready to cut go to layers and click on the B&W layer, then cut.

If done right then the part you want in color should show up, and it eliminates pasting which makes it look cleaner and is faster.

What font did you use Beast?
