I just started getting into making signatures and avatars--and I mean, like, just a couple of days ago, so bear with me. But, I have quite a bit of experience with Photoshop CS2, so I don't think I'd consider myself a beginner, but definitely not pro, either.
^^ I made this signature just several days ago for myself.
(I think the pink outer glow could've been darker...)
^^ A simple avatar with a border and text. I coloured her hair and eyes different from the original picture, but that's it. Oh, her skin is slightly more pale.
^^ My current avatar... I don't know what else to say, because I like it so much. <3
^^ Current signature.
^^ A random signature I just made today. Maybe it'll be a future signature for me, IDK. *Shrugs.*
C&C is always welcomed!
