I recently downloaded GIMP. And I love it. I studied a few tutorials and made some simple signatures that I don't think look too bad. But, I also know they could get alot better.

So now I turn to you. Please look over what I have done and give me some advice on what needs improving.

Here're two sigs I made using the same style. The second one was for a friend of mine, and credit goes to Serated for the extraction in the first signature.

haha, i have that same extract with me xDD

anyways,
the colors seems a bit too monochrome. Try playing around with the Colors a bit (Levels, Curves, Color Balance, yada-yada) and setting them to various layer moods (for experimenting). Also sharpening the image a bit could really improve the depth btw :3

Theres some tutorials in here that could help you get around the program a bit, it helped me quite a bit!


How long have you started? And if this is your first ever batch, then damned, you're good!

Thanks, Uni. I started four days ago, and tutorials are something I crave right now. =D

One question, if you don't mind. How exactly would you sharpen an image? Lately, all I've been doing is (re)sizing and copy/pasting.

Oh, its a good thing i have some slight experiences with GIMP =D

Go to FILTERS > ENHANCE > SHARPEN and there you go :3 main tip for sharpening is making it just right, happy-sharpening could really kill.

Greatly appreciated, Uni!

Something I made out of sheer boredom. I'm not at all happy with the result.

I decided to make myself a new signature.

And then, I decided to make a random avatar.
