Hey, thanks. :D I used the gradient bars plugin.

Heres a wip, not sure what to do to it though:

Nice job Down, did you use Oil Painting? I like your first sig. I don't get the bear skull though.

Here are some I made.

Hmm... haven't thought about avatars before, if I make any I'll post them later.

@01wanga: The Circles one: This one's great, but I wish you would have worked on the background more :(

I would show you the sig, too, but that would ruin it's first appearance in the SDOTY.

To get this, just right click the picture and click copy image location, then paste & enclose in bbcode.

Wild. It just says "Image" now, on your post and mine.

Edit: Refreshed the page and I can see them. xD

I really like the second one. :mrgreen:

The circles need some feathering on the first.

EDIT:

@01wanga:

Since you have PM's disabled; here is my reply.

I use http://photobucket.com. Most others on here do also.

You have to sign up for an account, but it's free and pretty great.

@JJgunz: The boy seems a little stretched. I think it's a little too bright on top, and there's too much space on the sides. But the colors are quite cool and I like the text.

@Down: It's Kemaru, not Kenmaru :)

I still can't see 01wanga's sigs. Frustrating.

Duplicate your sig, then on a new white layer, brush in black (assuming that's what you want for a mask). Set the blend mode to additive. Move around your sig duplicate until you're happy with what you're seeing. Set the brushing layer to normal. Save as mask.png. Undo. Delete the brushing layer. Run Alpha mask on the duplicate, load mask.png, check invert mask and Mix Alpha, press Enter. Success!

Your render needs some edge help. And better integration into the entire piece.

And then you should add a border. :D

I've been busy. Need to brush up my skills tho. New plugins will help. :D

Any suggestions on this last one?

@Kemaru the smudging is very good but the render is slapped on and just has a blending mode on it.

CC pl0x.

How do you do those sort of circles around him, cus it's a pretty sweet effect.

Clipping Masks. On a black background, brush with your splatter brushes, where you want there to be clippings. Then save as mask.png or whatever.. then duplicate your flattened sig and run alpha mask using the mask.png file that you saved earlier. Voila, clippings.

Down, some of your sigs lack a focal point. Namely the first three.

O_o

What's this focal point you speak of?

Like the gradient/blendmode in the sig directly above?
