Just started getting used to GIMP now. As you can see from my first to last that I have improved. I've now managed to add borders, add fonts and edit fonts. Feedback welcome.

Why did you choose that character?

Looks quite good though.

Not bad a little to big for my taste but nice use of using pop out. You should add a border also it will help it out. Keep it up good start. Did you use PS or Gimp to make that?

I use GIMP, but like I said, I have never done this before, so I'm going to use some tutorials to get used to it and learn how to use borders and such.

EDIT: Figured the basics out now. Just need to find some better smudging tools.

I make you a sig and less than a week later you start making your own

Hehe, don't worry man!

Its a nice start, now you just gotta get some blending done, as most of you sigs just look like a character on a background. If you know what I mean?

And your curent you need to erase a little bit of the render so its underneath the botom part of the border

Like madcap said, go check out deviantart for some tutorials!

No bad considering you just started, they look pretty good. Practice makes perfect.

The best one is the one your using, but the others need some work.
