    Little Jess's mum told me yesterday that she's going back to college in September to get her A-levels so that she can do a midwifery course later on. She'll be perfect for it

        At least you do have the Directors Series now though, yes?

        I've made one for TSE, just a little one because it was free but is a perfect handbag size - should be here in a couple of days Not sure what I'm doing for AT5, still waiting to see a lot more pics.
        I'm waiting till payday anyway I love the idea of a small one, can't wait to see it!

        It is I'm seeing Laurie at the end of July, but that's a long way off too
        July seems forever away too

          Ah, good. That's an easy one. Don't need to put that tut in the Art thread!

          Well... in easy steps:

          How to make this sig:


          Tut by me.
          Have I ever mentioned that ''tut'' is the Dutch cutesy word for, um ...''Virginia''?

          Spoiler:
          - Pick music to go with the sig

          Or Less Hippy...

          - Open Gimp/PS/ Whichever program you use. (Important step. I found that making any sig works best when you don't skip this step. Just a small tip. Remembering this will make you a better artworker.) And choose a size within GW regulations.

          - Use this background


          (And yes, that's what makes this an easy sig. Notice how it's All Done? ). and crop/cut/turn/scale to your hearts desire. Just... do. I used the heart as my focus point. ...Because that's important. To focus. Do. Just booble with it. Make it purple, I don't care. But focus.

          -Now the fun part! Choose Hair Pictures! I went with

          and a pic I can't find and the Martin pic I still haven't saved on my own computer, eventhough I linked to it.
          Choose pictures to go with the theme. Make the Hair sexy.
          (Of course, I had no theme and got inspired by AT's pic... but I was focused.

          - Shimmy and listen to more Hair songs.

          -Scale the pics. I know making pictures smaller isn't fun, but big pics do not fit on sigs.
          Unless you make it all about AT's nostrils, then it's fine. Make sure all pics are equal in size. I found it makes them work with me, instead of starting a riot.

          - Here's a tricky part. Make sure to get the same kind of colour on the pics. (I think we should ask TPTB to light all scenes exactly the same way...) I did it by using the thingy that intensifies or decreases colour. In this case I wanted *some* colour, but not too much. ...But you could go for grey scale and use the desasture... thingy.
          Again: Just fiddle and do and focus. Don't make it too hard on yourself. Who cares if the PTB/ actor looks slightly ill? The Hair is fabulous!

          - Now choose a border. I used something similar to this one:

          and scale it to fit over the pictures. Be spontanious. Borders don't *have* to be skinny jeans. Sometimes baggy looks grungy too.

          -With this border (as in not a ...mask? Brush? Dunno) there's white. Erase. The reason to just erase is that it makes it even grungy-er. Just leave bits in the corners, or in the middle. It'll look nonchalant. If the border doesn't stand out. Invert!

          - Sharpen the border and smash it together with the picture. Repeat that for the other pics. And make squashy sounds, just for fun.

          - Now take your three colour drained and bordered Hair Pics and make one layer out of them. Don't make squashy sounds, you're working with beloved PTB/actors here.

          - Position them and copy the layer.

          - Make a new layer and paste the copied layer on it. Booble with the transparancy and colour it to fit the sig. (I made it red. See how clever I am with my focus point? Red heart, red back layer? So good. Balance. *nods* )

          -Put the coloured layer under the original one and make it look like a shadow (I know. It's genius!) The background needs it. It's very full and busy and that takes away attention from the pictures. The ''shadow'' is a resting point or a buffer.

          - Graffiti. Text tool. I used... a font. *blinks* Probaly one of the segoe variations. It doesn't matter, just make sure it works on that dazzling background without fading away or adding to the madness.

          -Again, the eraser is your friend. Use it on the letters. Just pet it, don't erase half of it, because it kind of defies typing it in the first place.

          -Add a simple border (Red. Focus point. Balance. HooHah.).

          -Sign! (preferably your own name. Or sign it as ''Bob''.)

          -Optional: ...Or don't sign. It's an ego thing. *looks around* Or like a dog peeing to mark its territory.

          Not that I suggest peeing on your artwork. That's icky.


          Tuts are not my friends.

            Yes!


            Little Jess's mum told me yesterday that she's going back to college in September to get her A-levels so that she can do a midwifery course later on. She'll be perfect for it
            Awww.

            I toyed with the idea of midwifery when I was 15. My Grandma was a midwife. I think my results in Biology told me otherwise...

              I hate to tell you Nad, but we're all having a very serious discussion about Martin's directing skills so it must be you that's on crack!

              I know I really should buy a lottery ticket, win a couple of million, give up work and just travel around the world seeking out WooHoos in their native surroundings and live with each of them for a while

              Of course, I'd have to buy a winery first...............
