well ****

I did it 150% and it still didn't cut it

reuploading AGAIN UGHHHH

and then, due to all the VEVO and youtube copyright stuff, I can't put on the songs I like, so I'm just gonna use some random *** AudioSwap song T_T

should be done in around an hour, in the meanwhile, xbox time :D

Thanks to TRUeLM, Plastictree, Scrax, Xiaowiriamu, foggy12, JahGFX, jhoijhoi, msrobinson, JEFFY40HANDS, Nyoike, MissMaw, and me :) for the sigs!

This helped. :) I've been having a bit of trouble getting Gimp to work for me, and even though I'm up at 5 AM working on something when I should be sleeping, I think I'm okay with it. 5 hours of sleep, here I come.

Since I followed your tutorial, I figured I'd ask what you thought. Thanks for making this little tutorial. ^_^

Oh, very nice. Thank you! I don't like very many of the brushes or fonts pre-programmed into Gimp, so that really helps. And yay for more tutorials. I'll toy around with it over the weekend. :)

Probably a VERY noobish question here.... Where might I get good render? I google image'd them and didnt get much.
Strength may win the fight, but style wins the crowd.

+rep if you like what I say, explain why if you don't.

You'll need to make an account, but it's not that hard.

Thank you!
After following your tutorial step by step I made this:



I've gotta say that i have ABSOLUTELY NO EXPERIENCE WITH GIMP OR PHOTOSHOP OR WHAT SO EVER, but this is how it turned out (:

PS. Thinking of going into the signature business now xD

Thanks to ALOT OF PEOPLE for all the awesome signatures!
If I helped, don't hesitate to +Rep :D
