    My first sig

    This is my first sig making on photoshop and my first avatar (i could have taken the guy on the sig for my avatar but wanted to try just potting my name on it lol) Rate it please on the poll and i would appreciate some comments/tips/advices from people who make sigs here
    Oh and also...if someone wanna teach me how to create usefull brushes to make a background yourself,i mean some kinds of lines flying around the character,or making a dog tag chain...anything like that cause of at the moment,i'm only able to play a bit with the text,do reflections,superpose pictures,cut them from the background,and other blending options.This is pretty limited i think and would like to learn more and become better. Thanks!!

    Try to get a free version of photoshop and learn about that. I like to use brushes to make my backgrounds. Then I use blending options and really make it contrast. There are a lot of sites with really cool renders.

    Deviantart.com <-- I think that is the website where you can get brushes just search for brushes, you can download fonts here at Dafont.com.

    no offence but all you did was add text to a picture it doesnt look like you spent alot of time on it, woody is right use custom bruses and nice filters in your background i did that with my first sig(its still on here cause it was the first one i made)\/\/\/
