    They all look really cool so far.

    WingCatcher... The Royal Flush idea is a good idea and it looks great :)

    Elladan... Your sig made me ROFL and ROFL again :D

    Charlie... Yours is really gentle and a nice idea. I actually love that font, it's called A Charming Font and I think it fits really well with the idea of your sig :)

    I like the entries so far. Elladin, I think I laughed for a good few minutes at yours. Very witty.

    I'm trying to work on mine, but I can't find any good stock pictures, gah.

    ^ I'm pleased my artistic endeavours *laughs* are the cause of such merriment :D

    (I'm particularly impressed by my goose-stepping/mincing King Henry VIII in the background and the tasteful trainers he's sporting....)

    Okies, here's my entry. It's not very good, and I'm terrible with text placement, but I had sooo much fun coloring it.

    The quote is by Lini from the Wheel of Time series. I've always treasured her quotes, and that particular one stood out for me. The images are from Elandria's stock images.

    Elerial, I love your entry, the colouring is just gorgeous. I'd love to know how you achieved it.

    First, I blended the two images together. I think most of you got that down.

    I then sharpened it a whole lot for that sharp, antique-y look.
    Afterwards, I made about five new layers with different settings and filled them with a few different colors. To get the different color splotches, I made my own textures which was basically just different colored blobs, and set that to a different setting. I probably added a few more layers of colors as well, and ta da.

    Ahh cool, thanks. It's a beautiful effect and it really makes the whole sig look old-fashioned and soft and pretty, I love it :)

    Oooh, good. That was the look I was going for.

    Elerial, hope you don't mind but I had a go at copying the effect :D
    I didn't put any text on it as I'm crap at it XD... btw I don't think you are at all.

    Hm it's sort of similar

    Oh, wow, yours is much, much better. Mine's too dark, and the lack of colors on your faces really looks much better than my dark pink and purple ones, hahahha.

    (By the way, where did you find those pictures? Those are absolutely beautiful!)
