Ok so I've been a little interested in starting to make some graphics (like avatars, team logos, sig bars, etc.) and now I've finally gotten to the point of attempting to make some and I need ideas!

These won't be the best, as im just starting out and I'm using a random program until I hear of a better one from folks that are already doing these. So if you're a designer yourself, let me know what programs you use! I'm hoping to get away with using a free program (using GIMP now), but am willing to spend a couple bucks for a cheap program.

Also, if you have any suggestions, rules to follow, words of advice, etc etc, let me know. As im just starting the learning process, every bit of info will help!

The first project I did is what is my avatar atm. Not the best I know, but again, thats my first one =p. Let me know what you guys think about it (be brutally honest please, no lying here!)

All projects are free to be used by anyone, I don't mind. =)


Current projects being worked on:

The fanbar looks nice! Although I'm not a fan of the font. It looks too childish to me.

<-- afraid of torrents due to viruses and other malware junk usually that comes with them. Besides, I like to be honest with what I get.

MoB stands for what exactly? Any inspiration you can give me as to what you would like for it to look like? any links to graphics you would like on it? Need a little info before I can just create one =p. And do remember... I'm very beginner.... =p

MoB like The Mob. Haha. My friends wanted to make that the name. I didn't care. So we went with it.

Here is an album I created of images I found. - http://imgur.com/a/iDeJZ

Wing it. I will be happy with just about anything I can get.
