My avatar and sig pics are all done by my good friend and guildie, Millamber. I dunno how he does them, I just tell him what I want and a couple of days later, there it is. Then you put them in using the control panel.

Welp, I do screenshot art. I use a program called Paintshop Pro. But of course the avatar you see here was done long ago so I can't say it's that nice hehe. YOu can fine my artwork on my guild website.

If you go up and click User cp and then click edit opition you'll see an avatar opition you wanna click change avatar opition.

This board is really nice in that it will host your avatar pics so you don't have to worry about having it hosted on your own webspace.

Graphic sigs are usally made by friends of friends, ask around on your server, or in guild and see if you can get introduced to a person who makes graphic sigs (tho you can't use them here!)

Theres aslo a forum called Norrath's studio, whose address I cant recall atm. I....think.....they do commision work, would have to check that out.

However! Text sigs are the true mark of coolness, and I would sort you thro the html if it got you to not get a graphic sig /nod

My avatar came from my guild forums, I liked it so much that I copied it and use it now on forums that allow uploading avatars.

Background

Thank you. Got it covered now . On a side note, is there some special html coding for placing backgrounds on your Magelo?

No, but theres an opition in edit character which gives you the space to put a web adress to serve as your background for magelo.

Lorelai, your magelo image is absolutely adorable!

And mine's the same deal as Lor's, made magelo background myself in Paint Shop Pro and cropped my char's face out for the avatar. PSP is a great program to use for quick and easy graphical editing, especially since you can get it free for 30 days.

Both of those are nice. Lorelai, your char looks like Susan Richards from the Fantastic Four. 8) Very nice artwork.

Just hit ctrl-printscreen whenever you see something on your monitor that is cool. Then paste into whatever picture editting software you like and crop to the appropriate size.

Easy as eating pancakes.

Thanks! It really wasn't the point to make her look like Susan Richards... Though drawing Invisible Woman is surprisingly easy (when invisible). It's like a snowman in a snowstorm

My first avatar was a gif of my first name written in.. um, some arabic language. A customer from Abu Dhabi at work showed me how to write it, so I made a gif so I wouldn't forget.

My second avatar was a cropped image from the cover of the Return of the King cartoon dvd.

My current avatar I got from readordie.org
