the light is glaring off his covering. That is typical. Still outstanding work.

yeah that's another reason I don't like that one quite as much. Still cool though I think I like the first one better too.

Here's an Ike Taylor one.

If anybody wants to use any of these, just lemme know I can put your name on it and use whatever font you want, etc.


oh BTW, captcoolhand, check your PM's for a sig/avatar you requested. :bigthumb:

Steelersfan
10-03-2006, 01:11 AM
I'm not sure I like the font on that Ike one. The background and pic is good though. I guess it would be better to say I like the font but just not on the background.

BlitzburghRockCity
10-03-2006, 01:17 AM
I played around with fonts on that one for like 30 minutes and couldnt find one that fits :lol:

Steelersfan
10-03-2006, 01:21 AM
What if you made the background black instead of blue and keep the same white effects?

BlitzburghRockCity
10-03-2006, 01:28 AM
Now you tell me !!!! :lol:

LMAO! That font looks much better.

BlitzburghRockCity
10-03-2006, 01:43 AM
Yeah I think so too, not quite as bright and "loud" as the other font.

Steelersfan
10-03-2006, 01:51 AM
That other font would look good on a black background though!

BlitzburghRockCity
10-03-2006, 02:09 AM
You're killin me here !! :lol:

Steelersfan
10-03-2006, 02:11 AM
It was just a suggestion!.....lol Maybe to use down the road on a sig.

BlitzburghRockCity
10-03-2006, 02:24 AM
I think I made the background alittle too dark on this first one, but I do like the font against the darker backgrounds alot.

Sure can ! :yesnod: Just drop me a PM or post up here with any ideas of what you want on it ( player or players you want, any specific colors or other pics, etc. ) and I'll make you one.

I just finished one for captcoolhand, once he gets the PM hopefully he'll like it.

How do you guys make backgrounds like that in your sigs?

BlitzburghRockCity
10-10-2006, 10:54 PM
There starting to look all the same

Put down the keg already...

The last few I made with the exception of the Ben sig, was mostly the same background template but I colored and texturized it to make different looks. It just something else new to try.

The effects and colors menu in PSP you can do alot with them.

Do you think the text looks out of place or is it ok ?

BlitzburghRockCity
10-16-2006, 12:58 AM
I think I kinda like this one...I gotta save that Tommy sig for real special occasions. I broke it out today and we won so I have to save some of that good stuff for when we need a pick me up again :lol:

I can't tell you what I would do to the font, but it does look a little funny on my end.

I think the Welcome should either be curved like the "my house" part or maybe the same color.

OMG! Matt could you add my name to that sig? That is freaking awesome!! That has to have my name on it.

BlitzburghRockCity
10-17-2006, 06:58 PM
I can put virtually any player in there for you and put your name on it if you like.

I just may have to keep this one for myself :lol: but I can make you one with another player or a different picture of Ben, I can change the shape of it, the color, etc. :yesnod: For example the one I have set for my sig now I can do as well, there's tons of options.

That background I made partially in PSP but also partially in Photo Explosion. Took me about 30 minutes or so or working with it to get it right with the player and all.

House of Steel
10-17-2006, 09:44 PM
That the problem, I can't seem to do anything right, I put the picture in the sig and then add the background and the darn background covers the player. I get too fustrated.

SteelerDan43
10-17-2006, 09:45 PM
you just need to organize your layers correctly

Mine is four layers
From top to bottom:

RIT Script and Tiger logo
Color Overlay (gray and orange tigerstipes)
Tiger Eye
Jungle

House of Steel
10-17-2006, 09:52 PM
thanks for the tips, Dan

BlitzburghRockCity
10-17-2006, 11:21 PM
Dan is exactly right..its all about organizing layers. That oval one I made you for example. started out with a basic blue rippled background
then I tweaked it some by using more ripple and a punch effect. Then shaded it to a darker blue. that was my first layer. Then I made black oval as a second layer. Added the yellow as a 3rd layer, then finally put the picture of Ben in as the 4th layer.

Each layer goes on top of the previous of course, but you can use the eraser option in the toolbar of PSP to remove the parts of the layer that you dont want so you can see whats underneath.

House of Steel
10-17-2006, 11:30 PM
I tried that and for some reason or another, it just doesn't seem to work for me. Can you give the techincal step of doing this? Like what to click and so forth?

BlitzburghRockCity
10-18-2006, 12:22 AM
I'll see if I can do that for you tomorrow evening. I'll use a couple screen shots of PSP so you can see the buttons and all.

No need to be jealous bro :lol: You're getting better and better each time you make one. It just takes time and practice.

I love it, Matt, don't change it. It goes real good with the Greece Flag. I am happy to see your proud of your heritage. I am very proud of mine, I am Swiss-German. I have 85% Swiss and 15% German. I am more Swiss than anything just like my Main Swiss Man, Ben Roethlisberger.
