Sig Pics from Delphi Forums.

I post a lot on delphi forums (been a member since 1998) and usually use a sig pic to make it easier for folks to recognize my posts. Sometimes I use something simple and sometimes I get creative and do up something cool in Photoshop. Here are a few of my favorites from over the years.

I found this picture of the inside of the Batcave on the interweb and decided that I needed to have my Batcycle parked in the Batcave. Seems simple enough, yeah right! It took 4 layers, a cut out of the batcomputer in the foreground,and some shadows to make this work. I think it came out pretty good though for my experience level at the time.

I made this one a little while later when I was heavily into my pin-up stage. Cut out pics of my bikes, added the border made up of a section of barbed wire repeated all the way around and put the pic of the girl in the background with a color layer over it to get the coloring I wanted.

One of my more recent sigs. Cut the background out a pic I liked of the Triumph (pre-new tank, by the way, it's a major pain to cut out around all those damn spokes!) made a shadow for the bike and added a cut out of some Bettie Page art that I really liked (Bettie was a Goddess!). Added Mjolnir to represent me and the Triumph Logo to represent the bike and we're in business.

This is my latest masterpiece. I decided to forgo the background removal and just add the new Bettie art and what the bike is. Photoshop is a great program and you can do a LOT of really cool stuff with it.


  1. Great stuff!!!! I love Betty Page. Especially after some idiot writer found her a few years ago and she refused to let him take a picture of her (She was 80ish). She said she didn't want to deter from those (wonderful) earlier images of her that we all fell in love with. I loved her even more after that. It gave her one up on Marilyn.

    BTW, I saw a picture of her a non bang hair style and it was a completely (and not so great) different look. Her bangs really made a difference.

  2. I agree with every word of that :) I DID see a pic of her after she was rediscovered. It was at some convention and she was with Anna Nicole Smith and Pamela Anderson. She still looked nice for her age. She aged gracefully, unlike most famous folks these days.
