+1 for Tom982.
After dabbling around with Animation I know Tom spent some long hours creating the animated sig for Athene.
The problem with animation on this or any forum is the size/space allowed to show your work.
Never the less Tom did an awesome job on Athene's sig.

Great job Tom!

Congrats to our latest Guru! Well done, Tom! :-D
I'll just modify your current sig and replace the Seven Pro badge with the Guru one ;-) I'm also dabbling with another sig for you, spent the afternoon following a tutorial for a really nice pattern and adding my own shy touches to it :-)

I love that animated sig you made for me - I don't think I've seen a sig so far with two levels of animation (the doors, then the animation behind the doors. Simply amazing).
I feel quite bad that you took such a lot of trouble and probably sigged your eyes sore, and then this size restriction barrier crops up and prevents me from showing off your artistry :-)

Thanks for fixing the sig, I'd completely forgotten about that! It's been a long time since I've got a new badge. Ooh, how intriguing I look forward to seeing the finished sig!

Most of the time I spent making it was just reading tutorials, I had no idea where to begin with animation in Photoshop. It all started when I came across this tutorial because I thought it would be nice to include a bit of animation in your sig.

Quick Tip: Create an Animated Banner Ad in Photoshop CS5 | Psdtuts+

Then I got carried away a little and pretty much threw myself in the deep end with that sig. Somebody more experienced than myself would be able to do what I did in at least half of the time - I was learning it all on the job Please don't feel bad Athene! You didn't ask for animation, it was my choice to overcomplicate it I learnt a lot and I'm quite confident with animation now so I'll be able to add a little bit here and there in future sigs. Think of it as a learning curve, not an inconvenience to myself!

Hi Tom,

Here you go - a new sig on the occasion of your Gurufication! Congrats again and thanks again for the lovely animated sig, it's a masterpiece!

Creation of the sig:
99% of the sig was created in GIMP. I followed the wonderful tutorial over here, but deviated from some steps; I ignored the fractal trace part and instead applied a slight whirl effect. And for the very first time, I also created text along a path ("Seven Guru" in the bottom right corner of the sig). It was enormous fun making a very different sig for a change, without using glow or smoke brushes and working heavily with filters instead.

Update: created a GFX version as well (simply replaced "Seven Guru" with "GFX Team").

Nice end product with the animated sig, Tom. Too bad it can't be used.
But a great product all the same.

Some more great sigs, Athene. Great work!
