    GFX tips?

    Anyone have any tips for creating good signatures and avatars?
    I don't need to know how to get started, and i already know/have what I need to make a signature.
    I just need to know how to put it all together, If that makes sense.

    Check out some tutorials and make sure you learn the basics of signature design. These include things like lighting, depth, coloring, flow, etc. They are vital to making a good tag, and it's best you get comfortable with incorporating each basic into every signature early on, so that you won't fall into bad habits.

    Most importantly, learn to take harsh criticism, and ignore any and all compliments towards your work. I'm going to be frank here, most of your beginning work is likely going to be pretty bad. We're all bad in the beginning, but those who don't pay attention to the critiques and only listen to the nice stuff, they don't get better. Keep your head held high, but don't get over your head.

    This tutorial, and the one Chambers posted have got to be the best ones. They go over everything in sig making.
