That's interesting Jhoi, never though about that, thanks!
Thank you for the text Yaya

EDIT:
1 last thing, I promise.
What fractal did you use for the tiny, tiny sparkles?
The packs I have are all big sparkles, not small ones.

@ Veng: Thanks :) The text font I used is called Inky.

I didn't use a clipping mask at all :P What I did is make the text of a light shade of the background color (for example if the background is blue, I make the text's color light blue), put the text layer on Overlay 100% and duplicate it 3-5 times, add a 20% glow and 75% drop shadow and you're done :D

@IPodPulse those diagonal lines are called Pattern overlays or Grid filters. I don't use GIMP, I use photoshop so I don't know how they are done on GIMP, but the basic idea is that it's just a layer with a lot of thin horizontal, vertical or diagonal lines that are put on very low opacity (~10%)

You should ask The_Nameless_Bard about anything GIMP related by the way :D She is amazing at it, and in fact, she is the one who taught me how to use the grid filters :P

Thanks :), I've seen a couple of artists do the overlay and I have been looking on how to do it for a while. Also is it an image you use for the overlay or a brush? if it is an image do you mind posting a link?
If you found me helpful give me some +Rep :)

Oh they're also called Scanlines, I believe it's the most common name for it.

Here's a deviantART link even though it's for PS, but just to give you a general idea :)

For Veng:


The tiny sparkles are in fact the extremity of the big sparkles' layers. I think we use the same pack of fractals (Greentunic, no?) If you want the tiny ones take the fractal named 4-12 on the pack n°4 of Greentunic and only use the extremities, like I did on the Swain one just now :P

For Dreadface:

@OTG: Still need the divider? I'm free now :P

Ah okay. I use a variation of 4-12 in pretty much every one of my graphics. Bigger dots.

Thank you for that. I assume you just erase the big glowing ones with a rubber?

Sig looks amazing, thanks!!

If you want to keep the same sort of texture, it's better to smudge stuff away. But if it's a fractal with a transparent background, erasing is fine.

Exactly, smudging preserves the level of light in the area and makes it look cleaner. Whereas if you erase, you'll generally have to smudge the edges of the area you erased to make it match anyways.

Oh sorry! Didn't realize you had responded to me. Yes I still need dividers and now a new banner and sig to go with it if you can. I know it will be a big request but take your time, here we go;

This is the dimensions I want for the banner and it's for a Nasus guide. It will use the Infernal Nasus skin art and the text will be "Nasus: Complete Guide to the temper of the ascended" and "A guide by OTGBionicArm".

Signature will be the same size as the ones I have up again with the Infernal nasus skin art and text reading "So eager to find meaning in nothingness." as well as my name on it.

Finally the dividers and arrow (The arrow is just for skill orders); link

Thats an example set for the dimensions. I want them to look fiery and in the colorations that appear on the infernal Nasus skin art.


Im sorry for such a big request, if you can do it all, thats fine!
