    In chronological order, newest first.
    The newest was done with Gimpshop, the rest with gimp.

    yes it is more of a banner than a sig, I forgot to resize it.
    I'll make some non-nazi ones a little bit later

    Their not that good, but i'm sure you can get a lot better. Try using Photoshop. Also make some non-flag ones, jesus.

    From the gimp:


    Not that great, but it only took 10 minutes.

    Eventually I'm going to draw a rabbit decked out in armor and make a siggy out of that.

    Thanks for the compliments guys!

    I have to be honest-I already had the knight picture ripped from Medieval and blue-screened for quick copying. But the rest (shading the knight, cropping the lightning pic, adding and translusifying the name, mocing everything around) of it was done in 10 mins.

    Wow nice one crazed rabbit. That would also be really cool as a custom Avatar.
    Yep, I'd love to make it into an avatar- I might have to do a little cropping/moving stuff around to make it so the knight wouldn't be really tiny.

    I've been called a Nazi, but I'm not one. I'm more of an Imperialistic dude myself.

    Nah, you could do a lot better, just learn to use proper programs like photoshop and you can master this type of thing in a week.

    Look at these sigs:





    These are not mine, but I couldn't do these even if I tried. I'm still not bad though. I used to make a lot of them but I deleted them.

    I'd prefer it if this stayed a topic about showcasing cool sigs, rather than dicussing Capo's Nazi ones. If you want to do that, I'll move it to the Backroom.

    Here's some more i think are excellent.



    I really like the little animations. They are the icing on the cake. Don't exaclty know how to add them though. I bet you Tgakure knows.

    if anyone can find any decent WWI/Prussian Era paintings/flag images/troop pics, I'd be much greatful.
    Here's where you can find every flag of any country ever: click! . Some are not as well drawn but they are all pretty desent.

    What does Photoshop do that the GIMP doesn't? Except cost a couple of hundred dollars...

    Did you see those sigs? They are amazing, that's what it does. You don't need Photoshop, you could get Adobe Illustrator. That's pretty good too. The only problem is you gotta learn to use them really well, for which i recommend either getting a book or just practicing all the time.

    Yep I know.
    I love German military history, and it's really hard to get pics before the WWII Wehrmacht/Waffen.
    I'm looking for a nice WWI Era Pickelhaub pic/painting I can use to make one with.

    BTW BP, NO! I wont stop with my flag sigs, I like those.

    Yes I did. There is nothing there that couldn't be done with the GIMP. You said people should learn to use proper programs, implying that those who had allready stated they used the GIMP weren't, I'm asking why is Photoshop a proper program, when the GIMP isn't.

    Aside from that, while artisitically talented, sig. images allways seem a bit of a dumb idea to me. If your post is good enough, people will value it for the content, not for the signature.
