I had 4 in my sig at OCR for a while, before I replaced it with the one I currently use here.

Here's a cheap one I made in like an hour using Paint and GIMP.

An attempt at animation.  (Will add more slides later)

EDIT 2:  I really should work on other things.  Userbar four.

And an alternating double sequence of two.

Thanks!  These are really fun to make.

Here's a fifth one!

Did a little animation adjustment.

EDIT:  Just made a sixth one, but I'll worry about animating it in the sequence later.  I've had a busy day today.

Aw man, that means I have to go back and change everything and all the animations.

A quick note to ya FEV: Userbars usually have a 1-pixel black border around them.

Also, they're supposed to be shiny. This is important!

^Dwight is obsessed with shiny.

C'mon, shiny is awesome. Makes things look bright and pretty. :lol:

I don't know how to make them shiny in GIMP. :wink:

Nor do I have the correct font type.

A little help, please?

Use this font:

Here are the technical specifications:

Use this technique, which also works in Photoshop and Photoshop Elements, to create the shiny effect:

Good good! You might want to put the border ABOVE the shininess, but not required.

YES!!!  :D  I shall make lots of userbars now!

You know, this thread would probably look better under Member Art.  I mean, the subject of people's userbars they make kind of leans into art.

EDIT:  I've redone all of them!
