So without further ado here is my stuff

Beginner Stuff


Newer Stuff


Requests

I suggest you use better tutorials. You're trying to start up, but your not really getting it. It's good you're trying. Try to follow this tutorial: http://img21.imageshack.us/img21/1030/ninjadudetut.png

I disagree slightly with Refined's choice of tut, I think it might be a little bit advanced for you at the moment. This a great compilation of tutorials for beginners/intermediates: http://graphicsninja.net/topic/3112972/1/#new

Another great way to improve would be too sign up at graphicsninja.net, they have a really active community who'll give you feedback on your sigs and advice on how to improve.

Honestly, the best thing you could possibly do right now is sign up to GN & check out Seedy's emporium... It has everything you need to know. If it dosn't, he'll be happy enough to add it for you lol

EDIT: Whoops... sorry, thought this was in the media section for some reason, & not the gallery! lol

It's a definite step up from you're earlier work, you're starting to get the hang of it The first sig looks quite nice, good background and nice pop out effect. The second isn't quite as good as the focal has been darkened down too much, but it's not a horrible attempt by any means. My advice to you now is just keep on reading as many tutorials as possible, it's by far the best way to become decent at sig making.

I like the smudge effects and such on the character, but personally I think the background is a bit to busy and does not flow well with the character. Maybe you could try and not have yellow in the background and do like a red, blackish-charcoal color, with the silverish grey smudge effects that would look smoother... but then again its up to your personal preference! But you are definitely improving loads!!

OK so i have come to a writers block kind of thing right now and i cant think of a good theme for a sig... i want to try somthing more advanced than the other basic stuff i have done.
If you could post some ideas that would be great
If you could post a link to a more advanced GIMP tut that would be good too i have been having trouble finding some,
and lastly if you want me to make a sig for you just post here and i will try
Thanks everybody!

This is probably the most useful tut I ever found for GIMP, it features some really good techniques which aren't too advanced but really help to improve your sigs. Try doing some of the other official tutorials on gimptalk as well, they'll definitely help you improve.

Oh and learn about c4ds as well, they're very useful

You need some brush tools, well, some better brush tools. Also use some colours that bring out the tag from the site

The improvement you've made during your last 2 signatures is quite something, the dragon one is especially sexy Keep up the good work.
