Hm...Well, this is an ID I was making for my Digital Photography class (omitting the details). It's a really big picture but I shrunk it, so it should be okay for just using IMG (this is actually a compressed version of it. For the .PDN file it ate 750 MB of RAM to open to give you perspective of its resolution and size):

As you may have noticed, cutting myself out wasn't the best of cuts. I used a different program for that but anyhow, after working on it for two hours I didn't want to fix my mistake. It's not like they'll be noticed in real life since it'll only be a 3.25x2 inch ID.

I am using light sabers, but when I tinted the image they aren't that well recognizable. So here's the image before I tinted it.

And as you may also notice, these sabers don't stay true to the movie version. And I have a very simple reason as to why: after waiting 10-20 minutes for it to render my blurs I didn't want to fix my errors. Luckily in the tented version they look a ton better for some reason.

Sounds like someone needs a Kentsfield ;)

Edit: For reference, it takes about 1 minute to apply a 200-px radius Gaussian Blur to a 20.5 megapixel image on a 3.2 GHz Core 2 Quad, in 64-bit Windows Vista.

William, you should use BoltBait's Feather plugin after you make your cutout. It will smooth those edges nicely.

I don't want to wait the 20+ minutes for that to render and me not being able to do anything because of the RAM it takes lol. Plus I'd have to go be a while since I don't have the cutouts on a different layer in the final .PDN (seven layers and 220 MB in size....). I'd have to go back to the previous .PDN before I blended everything =/

Besides, it'll be so small in real life compared to how big it is on a computer screen that the mess-ups won't really be noticeable.

The next process I buy won't be an Intel =/ I am going to get one for playing games without all the Intel noise and is a lot faster, which should work to speed up how long it takes to render these darned blurs lol. I was so ignorant, I thought that upgrading my RAM to 1.5 GB would make it fast enough to easily render blurs on an image thats 3.25x2 Inches with 1000 res. lol. But besides that, I won't be getting the RAM Hog Vista, XP already eats enough.

So, I realized yesterday, it's been a heck of a long time since I actually used PDN to make an image, start-to-finish. Everyone else is posting awesome images (big thumbs up guys :D), and I don't want people to think I've lost my edge or anything (:wink:).

So here's some sig possibilities I made this morning (technically 4:00 am is the morning, isn't it...). I tried to rip off jake2k's style :wink::

Could you make a tutorial on those signatures?

They are Awesome!

Edit: sorry my bad :oops:

hey kroteck, how di you get that animation?

Picc84, it's a little program called Pivot Stickman. This is my first attempt at using it. You should google and see some of the incredible things experienced guys can do with it.

Thanks CMD, but I'm confused. You're not suggesting that it's a built in feature are you? I've downloaded tons of plugins but I thought file types were something you also had to download.

Can someone direct me with a link, or explain this better? Sorry to be such a noob. Thanks

I'm making a new sig (because everyone else is).

**HINT**

It will be "digital"

EDIT: I'm doing the finishing touches.

I tried it out as an animated gif, but its messed up, so I'm going to make it an animated jpg (yes, you can make them!)

Never mind. It evolves Java.

EDIT 2:

Now it looks too big:

Those look good usedhonda but i would suggest lowering the opacity on the glares ;)

I made these and thought they looked pretty cool:

It's really fun to make things at such a small scale lol :D

I'm not entirely sure to what you're referring here. I haven't had a chance to respond yet. However, if you're referring to the diagonal lines, which was the last question I saw directed toward me:

When the Paint Bucket is seleted (in 2.7 it's always there), there will be a "Fill" drop down box, the second one from the left in the toolbar. If you open that, you can select from a miriad of simple patterns to apply to your fill. It also affects text and the like, so remember to change it back after you're done.

Well, there's a new sig-in-progress I'm going to share with you. It's a little busy, but I didn't plan the message I ended up putting on it. It struck me after I made the area much too small for how long the message was. Oh well.

I don't think I've kept it hidden that I'm utterly facinated with the images jake2k comes up with, and I often find myself wondering how he did such complex images with sweeping curves in a program which doesn't have anti-aliased selections. (For instance, the textured pipes in this one.)

In so pondering, I decided to try how I thought I'd do it if I were smart and such. I didn't put much time into detailing the curvy pipes, but like I said, it was a test. Perhaps jake would tell us if I did it properly... :wink:

I made my sig image with the background gradient and clouds for texture, then I made a new image, much larger, and created the pipes in there. I started with tall boxes, textured them a bit with a fill style, then used Polar Conversion to make them curvy. Then I copied them into the sig and viola!

P.S.

Jake, if you ever get sick of me trying to bite your style, just lemme know. :D

P.P.S.

Alex: I'd be happy to write up a tutorial on how I made those sigs!

What is going to be my new sig. The font is "Impact" with what amounts to my attempt at a grunge effect.

By the way, barkbark, I kinda brushed over that post of yours. I love your new sig! The lighting effects, both on the text and on the generators on the sides are outstanding. :D

Thank you CMD. I had found that in 2.7 but I downloaded 3.0 a week later and never thought about it again. I can't believe I've had that available to me all this time and had totally forgotten about it. :roll:

Thanks man. I started out trying to get a jake2k'ish banner workin' and got sidetracked. I'm glad you liked it.

Man, there is some really nice stuff popping up in here lately. Crazy Man Dan's coming up with those very clean, glossy tech sigs, barkbark00 got that sweet new grunge sig with the awsome electrical archs, usedHONDA came up with a really nice digital text effect for his new sig, and then BuzzKill pops in with a cool 3D washer (the one with the tile is 10x as cool btw :wink: ) Oh yea and then theres korteck with his funny little stick man that can't seem to stay on his feet haha :P . Great job everybody, seems like the new year brings in new sigs lol.
