    There's plenty of tuts around, just use google.

    Once you get better then there will be more use in people giving you specific pointers.

    You should also look around the net for other programs if you know what i mean, i don't know how to use GIMP, and what its capable of, but If your wanting to make sigs for a while, Invest some time into finding Photoshop, PM me for more info mate.

    Stick with the original colours , look to enhance it rather than desaturating it or getting rid of it . Try and learn photoshop because it's better and much more rewarding .

    Better than the Simpson one, don't like the black box text though. Just keep looking up tutorials and you will get better.

    A Sig is more than just adding text mate.

    I personally have never used GIMP because it's not very good. Try get Photoshop and you'll become sooooo much better

    Also I didn't mean to put it like that it just turned out that way...it was gunna be in like lots of different colours but it didn't turn out.


    Anyways here's my next one of Junior Sau but I think I'm still pretty bad and I can't use photoshop if u have 2 pay so I'm sticking with GIMP, this one I just fiddled around till I found one I liked...so here it is, hope it's an improvement...

    That sig should come with a warning that it could induce epileptic fits.

    Where is Junior Sau in that pic? :p

    For starters change the size of the sig, have if going like my current one. Across ways.

    This is very much like go gidleys sigs.

    Look to enhance the colours than getting rid of it . Dont make the image too distorted, if you are gona put texts over the player set the layer to overlay in blending mode .

    Hey guys, its Knightsftw but i had to have a name change because of the rules, so the thread will still say 'knightsftw's portfolio' but my posts will be under 'Walrus King.' Anyway, I have been working on a new picture and i had some help from -GG- , so tell me what you think. Joel+Edwards+NRL+Rd+10+Knights+v+Warriors+6QiDvyJsL-Ll[1].jpg And yes, I know it's not too good, I'm still working and looking for tuts and trying to get photoshop, this one i used 'Picnik' for so could be better, maybe worse not sure, anyway tell us what you think and where there is room for improvement. Thanks guys :).
