While I might agree with you Connor, I also think it's a matter of preference, after all some people might prefer a simpler design.

Now, I'm totally aware I'm no good at making the kind of signature with fancy light effects, but I wanted to throw something in anyway.
Feel free to use it if you want, and yes, it's Sagamani's art.

Preference, true, but that does not mean that you have to stay with simple designs if you can make or if there was an option to have something better. I apologize for my way of wordings however, if that had offend you.

No harm done, and making signatures isn't really my field anyway so I'll leave the big works to the other guys. Never had the patience or the drive to master all those fancy effects as good signature makers should.
I prefer to draw original works.

By the way, for the people doing signatures for this forum, the suggested maximum width is 490 pixels. Otherwise when reply-chains get long the images may go outside of the Web layout.

Thanks, A. I'll just use your length and width for a signature.

Hmmm...actually, I prefer you to just download it. *coughs* Just don't say anything about how this is an illegal download.

Sign up for an account, and you're good from there. Then, it will start to download.

Also, I changed my signature. Took me hours to do this. It includes the rendering of the photo, the experiment of the fonts, and the designs. Ugh...still, it's worth it. =3=

you can sign up for a 30 day free-trial like I did (on the adobe website).

Signatures are hard to make though (well for me anyway). I've made three basic ones and they took me hours lol xD a lot of trial and error I'm afraid.

Btw, signatures are used in the "signature section" while an avatar is what you see below your name. There isn't too much of a difference between then besides location and size.

Here: http://browse.deviantart.com/resources/tutorials/?qh=&section=&q=forum+signature

There are a bunch here. The only one I looked at so far was the "Out-of-the-box" tutorial.

...No, I'm sorry. It's not so much that the signature is bad so much as... what the hell man? The heck are those things?!

Okay, so there's an original image?

Fine then, let's take a look and-

Nazi ghost? This doesn't explain things at all! (Although those thingies don't scare me as much now. Since all I can think of is NAZI GHOST)

Are you saving it in JPEG? Try PNG, it keeps the quality intact most of the time, even after being uploaded up to an online image viewer :O

Last one from me for the day. Man, these take a lot out of me xD

To answer any questions, Yes, I like Touhou. I like it a lot haha

Spoiler:

Thanks for the heads up, Depression. Saving it to a PNG file retained most of the quality

I actually like this one O_o

At least Sakuya isn't a Nazi ghost =D I do have to admit though; the Hellsing picture is kinda scary even for Nazi ghost standards anyway lol.
