you have to blend it in more. use the fill and opacity levels as well as putting another layer on top of george himself and then lowered those levels on top.
there should be an option to erase into transparent and not white.
i suggest watching a few tutorials that are in here as well as any others you can.
O I know, but I'm pretty impatient so.
When you say put another layer on top what do you mean, just like a transparent level?
when making sigs, the more advanced the sig, generally more layers it has. example.
layer 1 original pic
layer 2 some added lighting/blending of player
layer 3 team logo background
layer 4 another bg pic of player
layer 5 gradient
layer 6 text
for your first few sigs, you may only have 3-4 layers. ive made very nice looking sigs with 2 or 3 or 4 layers, but i also have sigs with 15-20+. the more you go, the more things you'll learn how to do. again, i highly suggest you watch a few tutorials, and i know in no time given your artistic abilities, you'll be an expert.
