After reading some blood effect tutorials, blood texture tutorials and testing them out, i think i got it pretty good on the blood-effect however the scars were done using the blood technique aswell, so if u dont like them i can redo them so their a lil more scratch/scar coloring instaed of the blood. also if u want any other changes to it let me kno, ill see what i can do

[End Result]

Well.... I suggest going to deviantArt and dowlading some Bloodspatter brushes. Then zoom in and try to color in those stray yellow pixels around the blood.

Photobucket -- Like i said, clear the cache that your web browser has [cache is what is stored, pages, files, images, everything, used for faster access] below you can find out how to clear cache for FireFox and Internet Explorer. Once you clear the cache the picture should be re-loaded just fine but note: everything images, others signatures and all of that will be re-loaded into cache aswell, so page may load a bit slower than normal.

also palin, its kal plz, not kalb, thxs

Edit:
Heres a way to clear cache for FireFox
Tools -> Options -> Privacy Tab -> Cache Tab -> Clear Cache Now -> Ok -> Press F5 [reloads page]
Heres a way to clear cache for Internet Explorer
Tools -> Internet Options -> General Tab -> Delete Files -> Ok -> Ok -> Press F5 [reloads page]

Edit2: Besides whats above i changed the wording in original post to make it more clearer for some people

Guys i have a question. When my friend saw all the amazing sigs you guys were making he was very impressed. He's a big mets and rangers fan and if somone could possibly make him a ranger/mets sig he would really be happy. If nobody wants to i also understand, but it would make him VERY happy. Thanks
Oh and his name is Henry if anyone would make it, if you could incorporate that into the sig that would be great
Thanks again (lol)

Thanks Rath, I had a few probs with my computer and the Wc3. It doesn't fit with the description I requested but it's very nice, almost glad you didn't work exactly on the request. Can you pm me the Photoshop ver?

EDIT: I noticed some "too much posts by certain people", wouldn't call it spam.

EDIT#2: Could you edit the text first, looking sideways and some effect on it if possible.

Hmm well I don't have photoshop... can you convert/open it from a GIMP file?

And yes I can change the text, do you have any specifications? If not I will just make it... fancier. What exactly do you mean by "Looking sideways?"

ok basically i want a woodland backround with a stream running northeast clipping part of the top left corner and a half kender(for images of kender go to the kencyclopedia for kender pics) with a somewhat dirty white robe on and a magical tower in the backround in the half-kenders right hand with his arm slightly forward holding a spellbook with his hood up yet light is still revealing his face showing that hes chanting a spell and in his left hand which is holding a fireball and his arm which is at a near 90 degree angle from his left arm and slung on his back is a staff that looks like a cross between the staff of magius and a hoopak and in a text similar to the kind used by blizzard's logo it says Norava with a sea tealish glow around it

descriptive enough? lol

Well let's see here.

In GIMP [which I use], I would open up the other Image file that you want on the sig, resize it to what you need, then drag a selection box around it and Copy-Paste it into the sig.

I get all my fonts at dafont. When you download the font it will be in a font format (changes for Windows/Mac), unzip the font zip file that you downloaded, then open up the Control Panel and go to settings, under the Display menu there should be a folder somewhere on the left (for XP) that says Fonts, if you Drag-an-Drop the TrueType file that you Unzipped into the font folder, you should get and "Installing Font" popup loading bar, when this is done, save your work and re-start GIMP, the next time you open it It should have the font in the font menu.

I think that about covers it. Please consider Private Messaging one of the sig makers next time you have a question, I mean I don't mind, and I don't think Herio does either, but this thread is getting a little..... posty?

I'd like to post a request for a signature, obviously:

I'd like the size to be 390x130
I'd want this picture included. Picture.
I'd want the color theme to be blue/white as stated on the picture.
As for any text wanted to be included there's nothing really I want on it.
A border/frame would be appreciated yes.

Thanks in advance.

yeah the right hand effect is just from a tribal tattoo brush set. the left hand is a 3d tattoo of a grim reaper but i havent figured out a nice way to sign my signatures. The reaper will have to do for now.

It's nice, but think you could get the background and Grimmjow a little sharper? Looks a little too blurry to me. :)

i didnt make the sig, i just made the avatar and put an abstract brush behind it to make it. I would try the actual sig but i figure you wanted rath to do it.
