Just a quick post to show off my new signature for the EVE-Online forums. I needed a new signature that showed that I’m a member of Hells Angels Inc.
It didn’t take me very long, probably about 10-20 minutes. I tried out something new this time too. Well, in terms of the way I do things. I actually heard about it years ago.
In case you’re wondering, I’m talking about creating the image at (at least) double the size you intend it to be. So, in this case I created an image measuring 800 pixels x 200 pixels for a signature that would end up being 400 pixels x 100 pixels. It makes it quite a bit easier because you have a larger area to work in, it’s a lot easier to add and remove layers or parts of layers. Then, after you’re done just re-size it to the size you need.
This method is also good if you have parts of your image with ‘jaggy edges’. When you re-size the image, it’ll look as if the object is blurred ever so slightly. Not so much that it compromises on the quality, only enough so that there are no ‘jaggy edges’. It essentially anti-aliases it.
I almost forgot, here’s the signature.
As always, if you have any feedback don’t hesitate to post a comment. I’d love to hear what you think about it or what you think should be added/removed/changed.
