I fell sway to the vibes I was getting that Gimp was cool.
Tried it out, and instantly loved it.

My first work, sort of a test, is my sig.
This is my second work.

I just like the cartoon style of Batallion Wars.



If someone want's this sig, just ask and it's yours.

My apologies.

I like the way how it all fits so well, almost as if it was just one picture originally. The only thing i dis-like is the logo in the middle. It just seems too large.
Good work, anyway.

Yeah, I'm totally ****ing in love with GIMP.
It's just so easy to remove the background from almost any original picture and working with seperate layers is a joy.


Oh, if anyone noticed, I ****ed up the original.
There are some un-transparencied white parts on the middle guy. Near his left arm.
Yes, I saw it and fixed it in Joeyoda's edit.

It doesnt have any qualities good signatures have, such as flow, lighting, focal point (even though you have that text in the middle, the guy in the middle mistakes it). I dont really like it.

So, to create a focal point, I would blur, or darken the fellows to the left and right, correct?

I don't quite understand the lighting issue. The objects are all aligned as if light were coming from the upper left, so I don't see your problem here.

Flow? Explain.

Focal point: Point where the focus point is; Make it the main render as in biggest, usually has the most lighting in the sig but not always.

Lighting: Where the light source is coming from; Look at the renders you're using, lights are coming from different points on all of them. try to make the lighting come from on side. But in those they look like they're two light sources.

Flow: Direction of the signature; this is harder to explain, its like the direction of the sig, like if the render was pointing its gun or something, the flow is towards where its being pointed.
