What do you do to make sigs, wallpapers, avatars and all that junk!

I see you all have really cool work and I would like to let out my creative side and create my own work!

Tips, advice and ctiticism whenever I can get some work done will be greatly appreciated! :salute:

Get GIMP which is a free and primitive version of photoshop to start off if you really are interested.

There's plenty of tutorials and stuff online for you to use to. You just need to look them up. Let me tell you first off that you will be overwhelmed if you are completely new to this so be prepared. Good luck.

ya gimp is the best option unless your rich and can afford photoshop

a lot of the same basic tools/features

but obviously photoshop is A LOT more in depth and polished

id suggest just playing around with filters and screens, download a bunch of brush packs (can never have too many and deviant art has TONS of free ones)

then once you get a little acquainted just look up gimp/ps tutorials start simple. Its easy to get decent at it and its addicting but to get great takes a lot of time

we miss some of the REALLY amazing artists around here, showoff and houshmazode come to mind and SNK

but weve got a bunch of newer artists here that arent too bad themselves
