We have a thread like this on another forum that I am on, where people can post some avatars or sigs that you are working on and need help with or some suggestions. I know I get stuck sometimes on what I should add or do to something I am working on. Please be honest and helpful. Please also dont add something or change another persons work unless they ask you to.

this is one I made awhile ago, but I think it is missing someting, I just cant figure out what, any suggestions would be great!

i think the image of him making a save should be from the front, that way you can add another of a closer shot of his name from behind. or, just make the image you have from behind larger in the frame. my two cents..

Yeah, I get what you're saying about text. When I work on something again I'll post. I agree that it's a great idea for a thread.

for a first try that is really good. what program are you using? I would only suggest a few things maybe adding a border, just one pixel black all the way around? and also the cut outs of dats are a little rough on the edges, I still have problems with that its a pain!

I use Gimp because it's free. Thanks for the suggestions, I really like the idea of adding a border.
