I really want to dude, especially since I love things like that, and Beowulf was an awesome read and all, but I've been at work constantly, so if you want me to take a stab you wouldn't get it until Thursday or Friday :(

Hope that works, I know its not quite what you had in mind (I tried making it that way, but it just didn't work out nicely).

:don:

Wow that's some nice work! (If I had to be picky I'd say that text you used in the poem in slightly hard to read)

I'm not really into manips so i couldn't probally help dude. But i know how to increase your skills( not advertising just telling him where to get some tuts) www.chaosgfx.com it's a great tutorial site, there's tuts for normal signatures and manips if you want to be able to edit pictures and stuff you would want to use the manip tutorials. If you're good at manips you could get a job when you're older as a technical photogerfer(sp?)

Awesome. :thumbsup:

SaberkingWow that's some nice work! (If I had to be picky I'd say that text you used in the poem in slightly hard to read)[/QUOTE] I have to agree, I was trying to use a norse/celtic looking font, but with the size of the sig, and the length of the poem, it was a bit difficult. I did have it at 800 pixels wide earlier but the resulting size of the images was just too small and I had to shrink it down.

I basically know enough about making sigs right now that I am satisfied. It looks like a good site, but i'm on a couple other sites that work very well if I need anything also.

Believe me, I have no interest in doing this kind of thing as a profession, its just a hobby. ;)

OH come on man, it's fun stuff! :p (actually I job shadow for graphic design in Des Moines next Thursday and they said they want me to get an internship there too). You should, go do something like that or reconsider going into it, you're definately gifted in that capacity :nodding:

As for your siggy, she's a beauty! I'll agree that the text is very hard to read, but that's kind of unavoidable in that area, so I'll ignore that. Just that, and I still say that you should consider doing some thicker borders, two pixel on that at least, as it will contain it a whole lot better, as right now the swords are kind of sticking out a lot along the edge doing some funky things. But that's just my extreme nitpicking because I'm a dork :p EXCELLENT work :nodding:

Eh, who knows...I mean, right now my dream is to work with cars, and since the race car driver didn't really work out, I plan on working for MotorTrend, Autoweek, Road & Track, etc.

I know my Photoshop knowledge might help with rendering out images and creating a layout, not to mention i'm a very good editor (when I try, ignore my posting here. :p). But hey, when you have no social life, you have to have something to do, right?

I agree about the border, at first I put a 1 pixel stroke on the BG and each slide, but after spending about 2 hours on it, I was ready to just get it done. But yes, a 2 pixel would have worked better.

The swords look like that because I used the magic wand on them (I was too lazy to cut out 2 swords when they were on a white background) so I had to use shadow and bevel to make it look like it was cut-out. I'm sneaky like that. :p
