Today, I will be teaching you dudes on how to make your own Avatar/Signature! Just a little contribution to the site.

Needed things:
  • Photoshop
  • A good font (Find one here: http://www.fontspace.com)
  • Basic PS knowledge


1.) Go to File > New, then use this suggested Width and Height: 180x200.

2.) Now go use the Text tool and type your username's first letter.

3.) Now go to Layer > Layer Style > Blending Options.

4.) Click Stroke, and be sure to make the stroke size to 1.

5.) Now click Gradient Overlay, double click the rectangle thingy with the colors.

6.) Now click the little square on the right and left side. Make the color on the right a darker one, while the right one is a lighter one. You can try this color code: Dark red: #6f0000, Light red: #af0000.

7.) You're all done! The result should be okay.

Don't forget to use the Magic Eraser Tool and click the white background. In order to do this, you must go to Layers > Layer 1 and click on the image. Be sure to save it as a .png file for it to be transparent.

[size=large]This tutorial also works for making signatures, the suggested size for making a signature is 500x200.
