I dunno why but they all seem kind of bland. Like, here's a shot of the game with some text. Maybe combine two shots of the same character from two angles to make a more dynamic image?

They are all missing an important thing.... A border... That small little line, or whatever you make it to be, adds a lot of "finish" to sigs...

Also, your text generally overwhelms the image itself.... It needs to be smaller and inconspicuous.... If you want people to really look at your characters or whatever is in the image then you need to make sure their attention isn't grabbed by something else....

You have some cool screenshots, but you need to mess around with your composition and placement a bit more.... ;)

^^ :werd: the 2nd one, with the 1pixel border makes a huge difference.....

other than that, ive never played the game, so im not even sure what im looking at, other than its obviously your character.....

but yeah, start putting that little border on there, maybe add another image with a nice fade :thumbs up

Layer two photos and lower the opacity on the eraser tool. Mess around a little bit and experiment. If you don't like how it looks, History is your friend, go back to the beginning and try something else.

And an easy border is to create a new piece with a black fill at 500x100. Then make the pretty part in another piece sized at 498x98. Finish and flatten the pretty, then copy and paste it onto the black background and you have a perfect easy black 2 pixel border with no messing around with line tools.

maybe it's because im so used to WoW.

we don't give a f**k about WOW. You've now posted not one but two useless posts in Anf's thread.

Anf: Axles? Like for your car?

He was making a comparison with a similar game.... No need to get all worked up about it.... :what:


Although his first post was a bit useless.... :scurred:

and here's another useless post that has NOTHING to do with the original question. There's nothing in the thread about WOW vs. EQ2. In fact WOW isn't mentioned at all. Go ahead and defend off topic posters who jump into threads to post bullshit and don't actually help anybody.

and i dont give a f**k about you.
now i'll post more.

grats.
also, reading comprehension > you
if you read a bit closer, by me judging the game's graffics, i instantly gave an honest opinion on what i thought was wrong with the sigs. of course, you couldn't figure that out on your own because you were too busy getting your butt hurt in a thread that isn't even yours.

Saying that the graphics aren't as good isn't constructive, he can't change the graphics of the game, they are what they are. Instead, try to list something that he CAN change, like the text, or a border, or the overall layout of the sig. Lots of games have better graphics, but it doesn't matter because he plays EQ and wants to make sigs from it.

Heaven forbid someone should try to keep the thread helpful, oh no, he's just being butt hurt.
