I have a question for you experts

This goes for all of you, but as an example of what I am talking about see PooMan and Dom's sigs

When it comes to making custom shapes for your sigs, how do you go about doing it? I know how to make squares and circles obviously, but the abstract shapes how do you make them? I am pretty good at photoshop, so feel free to use any ps lingo

i dont know how evryvone else is doing them but i usualy use the select tool. you have a picture that youlike and select parts of it until you have a shape that you like.


found this 2 tutorials:

Making Custom Shapes

Using and Creating Custom Shapes -- a Photoshop Tutorial by Janee

example:
i rendered this imagine and then i used the select tool. i know the result isnt any good.

hope it helps.

Hiya pal

I don't actually use PS to design, I only use PS for some of the fancy effects, shading and brushes etc.
I predominately use CorelDraw & CorelPhotoPaint. I prefer working with vectors and then converting some of the line work to bitmap as I go.
You tend to have a lot more control and precision when manipulating the lines in CorelDraw but then again that's what CorelDraw was designed for.
Don't get me wrong I still use PS but since Corel X5 I don't need to use PS 1/2 as much as I used to.

Here's an example of how I manipulated some of the shapes in a tutorial I made for Arc to show him how I did LordBob's signature ... enjoy and give us a shout if you need any help

This was done in Corel X3 but X5 is pretty much the same ... best viewed full screen 480p

Hi Kirsch,

I would be more than happy to help. Instead of using the shape tool, I used the different type of selection tools, like rectangle marquee/elliptical marquee or any of the lasso tools. I select what I want, and then using the fill tool I fill it with any colour, and then to make compound shapes I just make another selection, and then staying on the same layer you just fill again, for the best effect with the same colour.
