Can anyone handle this sig idea? Maybe offer me pointers?

Postby Simulacrum » Sat Apr 30, 2005 2:56 pm

Hey guys, I am being tormented this season with the flacid bats of Adrian Beltre and Vernon Wells. Any chance some extremely talented graphic artist could build me a siggy that has Wells on one side, Beltre on the other, each holding a large, limp, flacid bat? I think posting with that siggie would help me channel some of the frustration these two dorks are causing me. Maybe with the caption- "'Roid-Withdrawals?" Or "you guys are killing me" or "flacid bats" or no caption at all, or perhaps you can think of something funny yourself.

I am a very creative person myself and I have some experience using photoshop, so if someone were kind enough to walk me through the process they use to create those absolutely ;-D awesome siggies I see everywhere, I'm sure I could contribute by helping other people build theirs as well.

I would also really like a D-Backs logo on the forehead of my robotic dude avatar, I tried doing that, but the file size was way too massive to be uploaded when I was finished... but that's not completely necessary, I'd rather have the siggie.

Thanks in advance if anyone is interested. :-)

Pretty stylin', huh? B-)

How did you manage to get the avatar's file size down without compromising resolution? I'm assuming you used photoshop... can you clue me in?

I absolutely love it. You sir, are my hero. ;-D B-)

I'm very impressed. Thanks very much for taking time out of your busy life to hook me up like you did. Very much obliged.

I'll practice making siggies myself and maybe sometime I'll be able to help you or someone else out in a similar fashion.

Now to try it on for size...

Haha leal rocks. It was his sigs that inspired me to get a good program and actually start making some real sigs.
