A signature thread
 
I was wondering if we could have a signature thread about Commandos and Mandalorians here. You know, showoff your sigs and help people who want some.

*Note - If the admins don't agree, you can delete this thread :)
**Note - If the admins do agree, here are some basic rules and how you can ask for your sig:

***

Rule 1 - No flaming in this topic, or any topic. If you've got nothing good to say, don't say anything at all.
Rule 2 - No spamming, meaning private chats and PM conversations in the topic.
Rule 3 - No posting other people's work, or at least if you post it give them credit.
Rule 4 - Everyone's welcome
Rule 5 - Have fun

***

Asking for sig rules:

1 Character - Tell me which character you would like
2 Quote - If you'd like any specific quote for him, if not it's the sigger's choice
3 Background - If you have any specific background in mind
4 Symbol - Any symbols you'd like to be in your sig(you can go without them if you want)
5 Your name - Because some of us are on 100+ forums, you have to specify which name/s you want on your sig. They can be more than one.

***

Alright then, I'll show some of my work, related to Commandos(and clones of course) and Mandalorians.

Anyone can post/comment/request/fulfill a request. Have fun :thmbup1:

Astor 09-02-2009 04:57 AM

I'm quite happy to let this stay open, and the look great, but just a quick note from the General Forums rules regarding signature sizes -

Quote:

The maximum size of your custom image is 500 by 120 pixels or 80.0 KB
So if you're going to be producing signatures, it'd be best to make sure they conform with the current guidelines. ;)

Revan_Malak 09-02-2009 07:27 AM

Are you sure there's no way around it? I always make mine 550 by 150...It's tradition...

They are just guidelines, but we usually ask that members stick to the recommended size. It's not a concrete limit, but anything around that size is fine.

Revan_Malak 09-02-2009 10:24 AM

Astor: Thank you. I will not make anything that looks way too big.

Mandalore: I love transparent sigs, even though I don't make them. I like the True Mandos best.

K1lingdr3ad 09-02-2009 10:54 AM

These are awesome. If possible, i'd like to request one.

Character: My avvy, if possible.
Quote: "I will hunt you down, and keep hunting you down, so start running."
Background: Anything cool goes.
Symbols: None
Name: Just put K1lingdr3ad in there.

Also, while we're discussing signatures, would you be able to condense the text on yours a little? The image is fine, but the text below stretches the page a fair bit.

You don't necessarily have to get rid of it, just minimise it a little. ;)

Mandalore The Shadow 09-02-2009 12:43 PM

How is this:

K1lingdr3ad 09-02-2009 01:49 PM

Thanks, very nice Mandalore!

Mandalore The Shadow 09-02-2009 01:51 PM

yeah sorry about the white outline around the pic but I did my best

Revan_Malak 09-02-2009 04:09 PM

Alright kilingdr3ad, I'll try too.

Astor: Done :D No problem at all, text made smaller.(or will be in one minute ;))

That's OK, we will see what Revan can do, but still, nice job :D.

Revan_Malak 09-02-2009 05:54 PM

Well, he, he, I'm a nasty cheater:

http://img232.imageshack.us/img232/1596/k1lingdr3ad.jpg

I will not tell you how I did it :lol:

You can guess, though.

Do you like it?

K1lingdr3ad 09-02-2009 06:02 PM

Now that is awesome, yes I like it very much! What program do you guys make these with?

Mandalore The Shadow 09-02-2009 06:16 PM

I used gimp

I love your current sig. Who made it?

EDIT: I'm pretty sure Revan made it, but popular image site like Imageshack are blocked by my internet filter. >>

K1lingdr3ad 09-02-2009 07:19 PM

Yep, Revan made it. :D

M@RS 09-02-2009 08:44 PM

Very Cool. Revan, mind if I guess at how you did it? First, he carefully selected the commando and pasted him onto a different background (made it or found it somewhere), then added a slight motion blur on the left and right side of the commando, then added the wording with a blue outer glow.

I'm also sure he found the same pic with a higher resolution.

I'm probably not even close. xD

K1lingdr3ad 09-02-2009 08:47 PM

Well seeing as I customized the pic to my own desired colors, I doubt he found another, unless he copied what I did in photoshop.

Oh, and sry if this isn't relevant enough but how do you like this pic Revan?

http://www.lucasforums.com/picture.p...pictureid=4434

Holy Smokes! I didn't realize how huge this pic is! Oops.

Revan_Malak 09-03-2009 03:26 AM

I like the pic, but do you want a sig from it?(Bounty Hunter game, I'm sure.)

M@ars:No higher resolution here, I did it like I do the Commandos, piece by piece and you get a good looking sig. :D I hate Fixer anyway, so I'm not going to use his picture for any sig. And I use 3 blurs, about the text you are right and the background I found, but I'm pretty sure it's the merged pic from Ep2 AotC and a sky background.

EDIT:

K1lingdr3ad(You should tell us a shorter name :lol:) I'm just wondering why you made the pic smaller. Astor said it was okay 550 x 150. IT kinda dumps the quality when you resize it manually...

Anyway, if you'd like, I can make it that size by resizing it in Photoshop. It will look better ;)

And I forgot to answer your question: Photoshop CS3, that's how I make both the Commandos and the sigs. But it's not enough to have it, you have to get someone to teach you the basics. If you've heard of him, Razgriz was the one who taught me most of the things I know(basics at least :P), and without his creative criticism(oh how I hated that) I wouldn't have gotten so good. :D

K1lingdr3ad 09-03-2009 10:37 AM

Well, that's the size it made it when I put it as my sig. I didn't change it. Photoshop CS3? I suppose you still have to pay 10 billion dollars to own it? (Exaggeration).

RC #38 09-03-2009 12:43 PM

Ok, I'd Like To Request One.

1. Scorch

................(speechless)...................... ......

"That is one awesome sig!" Is all I can say.

Oh, and I was wondering if you could make another one if you have time? I am planning to have one for every custom member of Delta squad. For this one use the same quote, and this pic:

http://www.lucasforums.com/picture.p...pictureid=4469

K1lingdr3ad 09-06-2009 02:20 PM

Sry for double posting, but here is a sig I made:
(Sorry the white background is showing, I am going to try to change that.)

http://www.lucasforums.com/picture.p...pictureid=4486

Revan_Malak 09-06-2009 02:25 PM

You are excused!(Bad Admin imitation)

On the other hand, the sig is very good. I will do that Boss one for you.

Rinku 09-06-2009 02:48 PM

Very nice sigs RM!!

I really like the one with the black commando (4th one down from the top in the 1st post), but the one you made for K1lingdr3ad is really cool too! (the background looks like a LAAT that you put a cloud filter over)!

Delta 62 09-06-2009 03:41 PM

My request:
1.Delta Squad(if possible, if not then Boss)
2.We are the Republics elite,We are Commandos...
3.Kashyyk
4.None
5.Darth Gummybear

Revan_Malak 09-06-2009 04:42 PM

Alright guys, tomorrow two new sigs and two new Commandos. Think I can't do it? Just watch ;)

HockeyGoalie35 09-06-2009 06:06 PM

if i may have one:

Character: My avvy if you can
Quote: A well-built sniper rifle is a beautiful thing. Ours has two zoom modes, "Up close and personal" and "Hello, you're dead."
Background: orangy backround.
Symbols: None
Name: RC-3535 Hockey.

Revan_Malak 09-07-2009 03:17 AM

If you don't mind me asking, where was the original pic?(The avvy is too small, and I'll try to make the original pic look like the avvy, but bigger.)

And work on the other two sigs is almost done.

EDIT:

Time to unload some sigs:

Mandalore The Shadow 09-07-2009 08:22 AM

Character:
http://www.lucasforums.com/picture.p...pictureid=4506
Quote: "Mandalorians don't make threats, we make promises"
Background: Whatever you like with the picture
Symbols: None
Name: Mandalore The Shadow

Revan_Malak 09-07-2009 08:58 AM

Mandalore: Alright, I'll modify it slightly and make it straight after I grab a bite to eat. Commandos are done.

hockey: I can't make yours unless you give me the source to the image(so I can modify it) or unless you modify the original pic yourself. It's way too small.

HockeyGoalie35 09-07-2009 09:07 AM

how big does it have to be?

the one in your visitor's message is the max (768x 1024 i think)

Rinku 09-07-2009 10:38 AM

Nice RM!!

One thing about the bottom two sigs in post 33, the background is a bit busy you might want to try lowering the saturation (not a lot, just a little bit).

Delta 62 09-07-2009 11:26 AM

i love it. just one thing though....how can i get it as my signature?

Revan_Malak 09-07-2009 11:35 AM

Padowon: I know. Too many colors, but I have a done's-done policy.

Delta: Just edit your signature, get the url and make IMG tags around it. It should work.
