^ That is really useful! Thanks for the millionth time! :D

Hopefully I will get my own laptop soon, and I should be able to get gimp. ^_^

Edit: Made a new one.

I tried the render thing but the horses didn't look very good, so I just cut out. The cutting took ages xD

Edit: Made two more. Both for friends.

Yeash- *Rubs hands together* Con Crtit time on the edits. >:3
_____
Number 1 - Gabriella: I love the colors you chose for the background. But the words. They're the same color as the back, so it blends into the background. I would use a white or any other bright color. :3 You know, so it won't blend and be easily seen at the first moment. With the girl on the left, you know how it looks like she's sitting? Maybe you should make her be on top of the bottom of the tree, so she can be sitting on something. Besides float-ish sit? x3 The girl on the right is in a perfect spot for me. It makes her look like she's looking up at the words and the tree, plus the sky. <3 Besides an empty spot, looking into space. xD Awwweh look at the bunny rabbit!!! <3333 Reminds me of my bunny, Floppy! :D

Number 2 - Rachel: First thing I spot is, Rachel's name. Perfect shade of blue/green for the background. Makes it pop. :3 Good job. The butterfly around the name. Amazing idea to have it like in a shade. But. Not for this siggie, this one is under water. Butterflies don't swim in water. Perhaps you should have dun that with the dolphins, like a copy shade, then the real one? Your underwater background is... To me... A little over used. >_< Maybe find a new one? :3 Oh and the Lunii girl to me makes no scene... o-o Is it her?

Both - Both Siggies: With the girls and how you cut them out is, okay. Remember Look up; "(What you're looking up) Render". It works a lot better with people, such as anime people, than animals such as dogs... etc. If you don't want to look up renders, on PB there's this cut tool. Not. The eraser tool. It's like sicorrs, I can't really remember. But out outline what you want to like keep and it takes out the rest. :3

I hope you like your con crit, you're getting much better. ;) Need any help at any time, just ask.

Thanks! :D

Number 1 - good points which I really should have noticed, especially the writing. xD
I love the rabbit too!

Number 2 - I was bored one night so I just put random pictures together. Then my friend said she liked it so I added the writing. But you're right about the background. I wasn't planning on using it again. The lunaii girl was another random thing. Let's just say it was a completely random siggie? XD

The con crit's awesome, thanks :D

Thank you! :D

Edit: Made two more.

Made for my friend. I will probably redo it. I used the scissors for the two footballers, but it didn't work very well. I need practise.
Edit: Another one.

I really love your style! The blue color scheme suits you as well. :D I don't really know about a PB editor, I just use it to upload my siggies, but I can see you're doing a really wonderful job using it. :D I really love these. :D
i write because you exist.

^ Thanks! :D
I got GIMP a week ago, but I'm still trying to get used to it. It's quite complicated. Plus I don't really have the time to do much anymore. Homework overload.

Edit:
Homework defeated! I've made 3 sigs already this weekend.

Oooo, Amy like! All I say is in the fist one add some more detail and add a shadow to the girl. :3

For the second one, have a dark border on it. For instance like a black or deep green. Than place it behind the render girl to create a miniature 3d effect. Good job on the fractal art, Affy. :3

The third one is just perfect for the main theme. Plain and simple wins the hearts of a million people. Perfect. Plus the fractal is not over done. Perfect once again. :awesome:

I like 'em! :D

As you can see, I've been bowled over by friend's birthays. And I still have 3 to do! I had to link them out because they are too big.

I made them for Kitty and Sara ages ago, but forgot to post them.

Edit: I've made more stuff recently. This is a Merlin sig kinda thing with lunaiis in it.
Image

Also a sig I made for Amy :D
Image

And a general birthday card. The cutting's rubbish, but you don't notice it when it's printed out, which is what this was made for.
Image

Anyway, lets see if anyone posts anything now.
