That is what I got. I was curious as how you were able to get the lines to blur out so well? Unless, you did the transparent gradient tool to each individual line.. now that is dedication!

Svelte UI, btw, lol is my WOW UI that I made :P Anywho, thanks for the awesome tutorial! I will be trying to make a sig next :)

Do about 2 lines per layer, this makes fading them out a lot easier

My try. First tut I actually finished using. :)

I kept chopping off pieces from the left side because I didn't like how it looked there, as the colors faded into one and looked pretty odd.. x]

I don't think I did the text part right, but oh well.

This one's in two parts because I was making it for a forum that only allowed a max height of 100 px.

As you can see, I used Mike Ryan's alpha masking tutorial as well. I originally wanted to also use Flip's Glass, but it would've conflicted with the alpha mask shape. Also, I haven't perfectly lined it up yet :P

Set your secondary color to white, select Gradient, turn the :AllColorChannels: to :AlphaChannelOnly:, and make the gradient. Keep it at linear.

You should be drawing the gradient on the same layer as the line, and they should be on a different layer than the background. For maximum results, you should be doing each line on a seperate layer and then merging them all when you're done. I like to keep my lines into three or so layers judging by their size.
