Oh, hello there. Thanks for opening this thread. Hey do you know that it's March and much later this month the Spring season begins? Would you like to celebrate that in some way with every post you make, or exercise your artistic (or lack of artistic) talent? Well good news friend you've made it to the right place.

Heck you don't even need to spend money to make a sig for your friend:

  • Make beautiful images using GIMP or JSPaint
  • Manifisto will lovingly hold your hand and teach you how to use Blender in this thread
  • You could even draw something IRL and take a picture I'll bet

Ground Rules
  • Be nice

How do you host your image for your friend?
  • Imgur or another hosting site can host still images and GIFs
  • Before you host you can lower file-size using this site https://ezgif.com/optimize but don't hot link the optimized image from here, re-host it somewhere
  • Even better, GfyCat will automatically optimize your gif and give you a neat file extension of .webm which is much smaller file size! Remember the MP4 links don't work on the awful app yet. To link the image into the forums you use the URL tags. Add a Code bbtag with the link to your image if you want to be nice to your friend. It will look like this:
    code:
    [url]<link here>[/url]

Thanks and I look forward to making sigs as well!

I've been having good luck taking an image and dissecting it in blender and then superimposing the original image back onto the 3d canvas. Some kind of sea side or mountain oil painting was my idea, maybe something like this one for the base of the image?

After a bit of research it looks like that artwork is being sold by a small artist, and i'd hate to just rob them of their creative work without compensating them.

The Art Institute of Chicago has a huge resource of public domain artwork so I figured I'd pull from there instead for your sig How Wonderful!

I wish I understood how signatures worked. it's been a long time since I've actually understood bbcode forums and I've kinda lost it. I also dont know if you have to pay for signature usage here?

sigs are, at their simplest, just pics we make for each other. There's a "signature" field in your profile options in the user control panel. They don't cost anything to have and we usually host them on the sites vanisher posted earlier! There's nothing stopping u from getting in the fun!

I thought the lovely autumn sig nut and vanisher made me also looked very spring and could be a spring sig but despite vanisher's infinite patience in trying to teach me, I am hopeless at editing gifs. Or if anyone has a different idea I would love a new sig!

I would love a spring sig. Also I will try to make a sig or two.

Things have been pretty busy for me, and I've been mostly phone posting while I do other stuff. Sitting down and sigging it up while I listen to music may be just the thing I need.


thank you heather papps for this historically great sig!

I have done an RNG and I will be making a sig for Nexein. I will try to get to it this weekend, but you all know I am a bit slow, so if anyone else has an idea go to it, and I can re-roll.

Nexein if you have anything specific in mind, let me know.
