    Default xXTXx : VirtuArts Sig-Shop and Tutorials

    Thread still in its development stage, but for anyone's information, Ill be giving tutorials on how to make your own simple sig nice and easy If you find it too difficult, Ill be very happy to make one for you!


    How To Make Your Own Forum Signature:
    *Still In its Beta Stage

    NOTE: After reading this thread, and you think it's still difficult try and visit Radagan's guide right here:
    http://www.spacetimestudios.com/show...sig-with-phone

    Step 1: Get the right apps.
    If you play on an Android Device, this guide/tutorial will help you much more clearer than it will if you play using iOS Devices.
    Get The Right Apps!
    -Install Pixlr Express by Autodesk (My Best Friend in Sig Making)
    -Install Photo Editor by dev.macgyver (Additional features and more options for enhancing)
    -Install Photobucket Mobile by Photobucket Corporation (This is for those who need to upload them online)
    -Download the .apk version of Sketch+Paint+Draw Pad PRO (For Indefinite Cropping).

    Link:
    http://dailymaza.com/download/29657/..._pad_pro_-_2.0

    You could also use MY link at Mediafire:
    http://www.mediafire.com/?a9gp3d4cp8bskud

    (DOWNLOAD AT YOUR OWN RISK)

    INSTRUCTIONS TO DOWNLOAD THE .apk :
    Step 1: Find the Bold Label "Sketch Plus paint Plus Draw Pad PRO - 2.0.apk" and then click it.
    Step 2: Open the .apk file, Scan it with a Phone Anti-Virus (Optional), INstall and follow instructions for cropping at the FAQ Section.

    All Mentioned Apps:




    Step 2: Make your signature base.
    -Usually my sigs are 500 x 100 pixels which was also my favorite sig maker's size (Marshmallow).
    -Go to Photo Editor by dev.macgyver
    -Tap on "New" and it'll lead you to a window asking for the dimensions. Type in 500 x 100 .
    -Tap "Save" on the Upper Right corner and then tap "Gallery".

    Step 2 Photo Instruction:


    Step 3: Find and place your Background Image.
    -Look for an HD wallpaper of your choice (1920 x 1080 is my usual resolution) on the Internet and save it
    -When done, open your Signature Base using Photo Editor by dev.macgyver by Tapping "Gallery" then find the album "PhotoEditor" and tap the Signature Base picture.
    -Find the button that says Text/Image, Tap "Add Image", and then find the Wallpaper you downloaded/saved.
    -Tap "Apply"
    -Drag and resize the picture until satisfied with result.

    Step 3 Photo Instruction:


    Step 4: Save.
    -Tap "Save" In the Upper Right Corner and then tap "Gallery"

    Step 4 Photo Instruction:


    Step 5: Add Text/s.
    -Go to Pixlr Express by Autodesk, Open your "Raw Signature" by Tapping on "Photos", going to the "PhotoEditor" Album and then tapping your "Raw Signature"
    -Once opened, find the Box that says "Type", and then just tap on all of the unavailable text font categories to download it, It doesn't take too long to download them and doesn't require much space either. Once done downloading, experiment with different Colors and fonts to make beautiful texts.

    Step 5 Photo Instruction:


    Step 6: Design.
    -Using Pixlr Express by Autodesk, Let your imagination out with the various Effects and Enhancers.

    Step 6 Photo Instruction:


    Thanks for Reading! Hope it helped!

    FAQ:

    Q: What if I want to add my Character picture in my sig?


    A: Use Sketch+Paint+Draw Pad PRO.
    1-Click the 3 Vertical dots on the Upper Right Corner.
    2-Find your image and open it.
    3-Choose the Transparency Color (Checkered)
    4-Choose the 3rd to the bottom Type of brush (Its for smooth edges)
    5-Choose your size of brush (I use the largest as the other brush sizes are small)
    6-Brush away all Unneeded picture portions. (This may take some time)
    7-When you're done, tap on the check mark beside the 3 dots on the Upper Right corner to save it.
    8-Use Photo Editor by dev.macgyver to apply the photo to your sig
    8a-Open your sig
    8b-Use step 3 of the tutorial above to learn how to place the image onto your sig.
    8c-Cant find the cropped picture? Look for the Album named "Drawing".


    A2: (Credit to Juicymango for this one)
    1-Open your character screenshot, (preferrably cropped for easier measurements)
    2-Find the "Tools" option on the bottom of the right hand side of the screen (scroll)
    3-Tap "Free Crop" and start using the brush to cover your character in red.
    3a-Note that ONLY the parts painted red will be left.
    4-Erase any unneeded parts of the character until satisfied with result.
    5-Confirm your cropping and save your work.
    6-Follow Step 3 On main tutorial to learn how to apply your character onto the sig.


    Q: I want more design! What other apps can I use to add more?


    A: I would prefer Deco Sketch, PicsArt - Photo Studio OR Photoshop Touch if you know how to use it.

    Sorry if I'm infringing on any reserved space here, but I have to say; using this guide I made my current signature. It's simple, and it's fun. Obviously I have a ways to go before I'm anywhere near the same league as yourself and other signature makers, but your tutorial really helped me find the right apps and use them properly.
    Anyway... thanks for the brilliant tutorial, xXTXx. .

    Grimoire font please, I would like Xenobiotic to be in the middle and it to be glowing in gold. The background can be a greyish dark color. I think that's it, thanks!

    Is it because there are too many "Download Buttons"? If it is, tell me, and I'll tell you which the right one is.

    Wow nice guide!

    I actually learnt making sigs by myself after numerous fails and i have come to a point i am satisfied with my final products.

    I am also currently working on a sig project for my guild. Basically now i can do most of the stuff but still have a decent amount of problem with cropping :P

    Any advice please?




    Out of thanks..
