New sig+av
« on: October 24, 2004, 04:22:52 pm »
Hey, i've made a new sig and avatar, but i need someone to host it as i have no host that'll work. Help?

Btw the background of the sig is from the Masu site, under "Gigs" on the HTML page.. As soon as i saw it, i instantly liked it. And the avatar background is from the "News" section on the site. I felt my sig needed a change so i thought i'd get one that was MaSu-ey, lazy getting a pre-made one, but at least now i can show off on other forums with it! The more fans the better eh? :)

Open photoshop

Copy and paste image from Machinae Supremacy HTML site in a new window.

Use text function and select font

Type 'fallout'

Apply color (blue)

Apply a border (green) and outer glow in the layer options

Ta da... One sig-pic... It's easy, ddrdude

Simplicity is beautiful.
Besides it wasnt -that- easy. Especially with Blending Options thing taking 30 mins to load cuz my pc sucks so much. I had a gradiented stroke around the letters, in a mako-ish colour which took me around 5 mins cuz i was looking around on google image search for a pic of mako from final fantasy 7, took a screenshot of that, colour-dropped it, and colourised the stroke.

Before all this, i didnt just type "fallout" i typed "Fallout." and before that, i had to choose which font to use! (out of my 2000, no joke.. its impossible to choose which font to use; if you're a proffesional PS-er then you'll know the font has to look right, or the whole picture wont look right!

And the getting-of-the-HTML-background-pic wasnt -that- easy.. i had to select the right areas around it etc, and get EXACTLY the right size that i needed.. which took about 10 mins or so. I also had to shrink it a bit.

Anyway; i cant render 3D -yet-. i'll be learning soon, when i get the right tools.

I wanted something official tbh, so i went with that background, and have linked it to the MaSu site, in turn advertising the band. (I'm going to be using this on other forums as well)

I used to have tonnes of fonts, then I formatted and I totally forget where the hell I got them from in the first place :(

I had this way cool, techno one that is so Machinae, but the only proof of it is a crappy wallpaper I once made... :-\ ~sigh~
