    Nice work. I'm more of a traditional artist myself, so everything comes out kind of bleh when I try and make sigs.

    These are amazing. I only wish I had the abilty to make things like that. If I did I would have a cool sig like so many people out there.

    My attempts (no where near Surarrin's quality):

    [​IMG]

    ^My favorite signature so far, and most definitely my greatest work. This was made with a poster of Casino Royale (That's Daniel Craig - the new James Bond if you don't know). I used some textures to fill in the sides. Some brushwork and a few filters layer, it was done. Its avatar is a modification of a picture I found of an Ace of Spades card at DeviantArt.

    [​IMG]

    ^An attempt at being plain and narcissistic. Made with the same brushwork and filter work that led to the James Bond one. I don't have an avatar for this one as it was never displayed. It's kinda bad :( It originally started out as a Dexter (the show on Showtime - not the cartoon) themed signature. The splashed things were going to be made into blood, but I abandoned the project and just finished it like this.

    [​IMG]

    ^Tom Riddle. I made this one with a screenshot from the CoS movie and a background of some dark hills. With some Photoshopping, I attempted to make it look like he was staring out the window onto the grounds of Hogwarts. The original screenshot shows him in a dark room somewhere confronting Hagrid. The avatar for this is awesome - a fanmade photomanipulation of Tom Riddle after he killed his father.

    [​IMG]

    ^The classic "VoldieSheep", it is my first signature. Used only when I update ToaDS or feel especially in the sheeploving mood. I made it with a modified, 'green lightning' texture I found in my Zen Vision: M. The sheep was transparented in with some basic layer work, where I (as a joke) just colored in his eyes. Always displayed with the Heavily Armed Army!Sheep avatar.

    :::

    There are others, but they suck major cajones.

    Man how do you do it... They look really good. Now I feel very depressed... my sig was from frigging paint so I think I'm going to give up while I'm behind.
    But seriously, I wouldn't mind hearing the tips.

    Oh... yea, nvm then. I actually did have a go at Photoshop but man... the thing with layers is bloody confusing, but I'm gonna go have another go at it now. What Software do you use? Just curious.

    Mhm, I agree with Jonneh. The "Game Over" one looks pretty good. I also like the one underneath it. It looks purrdy with all the colours :)

    Good job Jeff.
