Alright. My brother just deleted niner's finished sig, so I have to remake his after yours. Both of yours will be done either today or tomorrow, 'cause I gotta go somewhere today.

1st frame: hey
2nd frame: hey
3rd frame :do that jedi thing!

Well, thats an easy request but I've a few questions. What is "toothpaste blue?" Do you have a sample?

Also, how long do you want the delay set? Any particular font?

EDIT:

Well, I made this.

RC1162.. I'm sorry to say it but I just can't find a good style that goes with it. The boxes are all messed up with it and the background is horrible. As well as the people you told me to pick out. Maybe if you get a drawing or some sort of concept art, or something that's a bit more refined (as in not all pixelated, like not an in-game graphic) I could totally whip something cool up for you. As of now, I can't do it. It just won't work. Someone else might try. Sorry to keep saying this. And i'm redoing the other guy's thing now, I just got back from spending a few days with my father.

If anyone would like to make me a Sig, then this is for you.

I want a Sig that has a white background, with black writing. The writing I would like to have would be Pottsie @ LF in the center. That is all I require. Thanks again.

How I do it is go to the button where you quote the post, then copy the portion of the picture. RC's way works too.

Could someone make me an avatar using this pic: http://media.teamxbox.com/dailyposts/Sev.jpg ?

Only, could you change the red pattern to gold and the gray armor to a darker gray, close to black, but make sure the commando still shows up well against the background. Also, cut down a little on the background and scale it down to an avatar size, like mine is now.

Thanks.

If you want to reduce the hard beveled edges (nothing wrong with them however).. re-activate the "black background button" layer in the source psd and just fill the black with your preferred color. It should retain the soft bevel...

However I think it looks just fine the way it is

I especially like the background effects you placed behind the emblem.. it gives it a nice 3-D effect

That was the idea. Unfortunately, I don't use Photoshop, so I don't know what you're talking about - I used MS Paint to add the effects. Time consuming, yes - but just as effective. I did the signature tags down there in MS Paint, too.

MS Paint or Paint.NET?

I wasn't aware that MS Paint had layer options (shows how up to date I am.. hehehe)... or are you physically going in-between the emblem with your effect and simulating the 3-D effect? If so, damn man.. you did a helluva job

If you think you can use a different layered file format (probably .tiff) I might be able to convert the master psd to that format. However not sure if my effects settings would transfer over to MS Paint...

Anywho, enough of me rambling... like I said, the effects you have right now look great as is, and as long as you're happy with it, who cares what my senile brain thinks

Soft beveling (or pillow emboss/effect) is just something I've used for so long it's embedded in my brain. Harder edges actually work much better on a forum for avatars as the lines translate with less aliasing... something beneficial for users no matter what browser they are using. And that's a good thing with higher def monitors (computers) as opposed to crappy analog TV res which is my usual medium I work with...

It doesn't have layer options, no. It takes a long time to get decent results... It took me about three and a half hours total to get the button effect right on the bottom and left hand edges - the top and right were fairly easy, as it's all one colour. Then all I needed to do was disable Draw Opaque and drop the image you so kindly edited for me into it, and voila. The blue glowing things are actually an old image file I had kicking around that inspired me to make the personalized sig tag I have, and then the matching avatar.

MS Paint can open an image no matter what kinds of effects it's had placed on it - it simply can't distinguish between layers, etc. I don't think there'd be a problem opening the file with Paint.

Well, if it works better on a forum, then I'll leave it as it is. I don't know if I would be able to do it in Paint anyway, so...

Check out this sig that Scorch made for me at Delta Squad.



He's made a lot of great sigs there. I'll stick to the one that I have now for awhile though.

Remember the sig rules we have here... that one is too large in several ways. 10 pixels too tall and 28.95 KB too large in size. -RH

EDIT: Thanks, RH. So I just can't use this sig at LF, right?

Could I perhaps get a sig pic of the Master Chief from Halo 2? Just kind of a mix of pictures, like these for example (in case you don't know what I'm talking about; I just googled these): Pic 1, Pic 2, Pic 3... Or any others of course, I'm just looking for those kind of pics - scaled down into a sig pic. Perhaps kind of grayed out, if that's possible? Unless they look good the way they are. Thanks to anyone who would try to do this.
