And possibly stick this attatached AMD logo on the oppossite side of the orb? I really appreciate the time and effort you've put into so far, that was very nice of you, Bro. I promise I won't ask for a second alteration.
I'm not pushin' you, just thought maybe you missed it. And of course, I'm very appreciative of the work you do for the SevenForums members. I too am not a stranger to doing free work. I'm one of the coding guru's for the ProBoard message boards. So I know that time can be a big issue sometimes. Thanks!

Here's the AMD logo... http://img266.imageshack.us/img266/5817/amdavatar.gif

Sorry pal I did miss your post...

Firstly you haven't saved the correct image that I posted Madmaxdata Image you need to click on the image and save the preview, you will see that this image is 600x200 which is the maximum size allowed and it won't have that text which is at the bottom of your current image (best to upload it to tinypic and paste the url in your CP)

Secondly I'm not to sure what you mean by a 3D effect do you have an example of what you had in mind? I can put your current "avatar image" in no problem, do you have the image file (just saves me having to redraw it)

And lastly that "AMD" image you show is animated... that means the file size is going to shoot through the roof as each frame will have to the image I've done aswell as the ani logo, & the quality of the overall image will drop considerably. I could put in a static AMD logo in if you would prefer, just let me know.
Okay, here's the two images you asked for:





Now what I want to do is have the Windows orb [with the #7 in it] on the left side of the Sig [replacing the current Windows logo]. Then have the OCZ in the middle, and the AMD logo on the right [Static is fine, it doesn't have to be animated]. While having my username pretty much like it is now [centered]. However, I don't want the height as big as it is now, but the length is fine like it is now [the original Sig height, I don't know why it isn't displaying it's true size right now, it should be MUCH bigger than this]. I'm sure you know what I'm talking about, Pal. Super fancy looking would be great, but I won't cry if you don't have the time to go crazy on it. Thank you!

By the way, what I meant by "3-D" is lots of layers like yours. At least I think you call them layers...LOL

Gud job buddy. If I was you, I would remove the black bar and change the font color to match the background.

Nice thinking dre@ms... Otherwise Swifty, you could maybe set the black bar at the bottom to about 60 or 70% opacity (just to show a small bit of background through it) and the text more turqoise with a light bevel / emboss? Well, that's what I would try anyway.

Still, I like the basic idea, looks cool!

Nice attempt, pal. Though there's still room for improvement. If you're using PS, try playing around with the blending options, add some mirror effects into the fonts/logos or glass effect into the sig. Brushes too play an important role in graphic editing. Above all, your sig still looks good, buddy.

Cheers, D3ftOn3Z.

Just wondering if someone would make me a custom signature incorporating my avatar?

That sounds like fun... Do you by any chance have an unedited version of Tazz we can work with..? The Tasmanian Devil was always one of my favourite cartoon characters.

This is the closest I can find in a Google Image search:

Okidoki I've done a few changes .... it's pretty difficult to give the "3-D" look when using the black background which you requested (drop shadows etc. which give depth don't show up very nice on black) but I've added a few texture "layers" ontop of the black to try and give it a raised feeling, (yep layers is what we call them there are 29 layers in the your image --- there are 83 layers in my sig not including some of the flattened bitmaps I'll post a pic someday to show you ) but I've also changed/added the logos you wanted.

I still think it's a good idea for some of the others to give it a go aswell just to give some variation
