Forum Signatures

Signature block (often abbreviated as signature, sig block, sig file, .sig, dot sig, siggy, or just sig) is a block of text automatically appended at the bottom of an e-mail message, Usenet article, or forum post. This has the effect of "signing off" the message and in a reply message of indicating that no more response follows. It is common practice for a signature block to consist of one or more lines containing some brief information on the author of the message. Information usually contained in a signature block includes the poster's name, phone number and email address, along with other contact details if required, such as URLs for sites owned or favoured by the author.

Sometimes it is nice to recall the past on how I first fell into the world of digital art. Before I decided to move on to serious art, I used to tweak and play around with Photoshop to create forum signatures or so called small art. I managed to grasp the basics of Photoshop tools and designing principles through signature creations. Though I have moved on from them, but they're still part of me, without having an interest in them as a start, I doubt I would have continued on with my designing journey till date. Here are some of my past sig art creations.

Deus-Ex Signature

Ghost Recon Signature

Liquify Experiment Signature

Paint Effect WIP Signature

Battle Mage Signature

These are only some of my past signature creations, it would be pretty much impossible for me to showcase all of them. I do not keep them around anymore since moving on to serious art. I did manage to find some of the tutorials I created for a few of my past signature creations. You can check them out -->HERE.<--

If you're into signatures, check out and sign up to become a member on these sites, they're a bunch of friendly sig art communities that I used to go to, it's a good place to start with, make new friends, and learn about Photoshop/Gimp. Delta-Vision , SigResource , FringeFX , VibrantFX , and SigTutorials .
