I go for a pretty simple style when it comes to sigs, and these are the two latest ones I did. I was hoping to get some comments and criticism from you fine folks. You'll notice some common trends among the two, most obviously they are both aircraft, but also you'll noticed the borders are pretty much the same. I was thinking of possibly changing the F-16 sig to have a solid black line as a border but I sort of like the hazy border.
They are both awesome, Afterburner. I say stick with the hazy border. Perhaps when you have time, make a F-22 or F-35 based sig too?
I like the orange one best. Nice text placement.
how do you make those lines? Copy pasting them?
The scan lines?
yep the scan lines
I tried making them, by creating two lines and using the pattern maker. The result was nothing great, but worked nevertheless as can be seen on my sig.
And I also consider the orange one better, though, I'd give it the same mask as the background
I like the F-16 one a lot. Good Job.

1. To create a normal userbar we first need to create the pattern, that is the stripes that you see in the background. To do that just open Photoshop (we're using Adobe Photoshop CS right now), select 'File' and then 'New..'. Create a 6x6 file with Transparent as the background color. Look at the pic:
5. Pattern was sucessfuly saved
That's how I did and it's not working perfectly.
Thanks for the comments guys, I appreciate it. I'll probably eventually have a sig for every single U.S. (and probably European) modern combat aircraft. And wraithcat, I'm doing my work on GIMP but I figure you can probaly do this with photoshop. To make the scan lines I simply applied a filter under the "Video" category. It has a number of different filters you can apply including horizontal scan lines, vertical ones, colored squares and so on.
I'm not good at giving instructions but if you need clarification I'll try to help.
What is this place?

Can you make me a sig? If you would. With one of the following pics
Just my screenname and some effects would be nice. Can you please?
Burner that boarder style is an awesome effect...I like it.
