    I think that looks pretty cool. You didn't take much time either. Thanks!

    Hey man I've checked out all of the Siggy's you've made they are really awesome. I've been doing some looking for images. and I've been looking for the dragon language to get "Hackathorn" thought it'd be neat to see the flame background with a dragon skeleton and the soul infusing into the name. Or even something with an Argonian with a Skyrim location in the background or a dragon attack.

    Alright,

    Here's what I came up with:

    Hackathorn copy.jpg

    Right, so what we have here is your name in dragon writing (i had to go find the font, but that was no trouble), with your name translated underneath in the same style as the Skyrim title.

    I went and had a look at the swirl effect for when you absorb a soul, and there isn't any way from me to rip it from an existing graphic AND get it to interact with your name, so I've had to emulate the effect of the swirls and the colours etc. You might notice that the swirls pass in front and behind your translated name as the swirls weave through, pretty much like you asked.

    Then to finish off we have the Flame effect behind your name to add the contrast, and behind that we have Alduin's wall.

    Hope you like it, if you want any changes then give me a shout. I'm happy to change almost anything.

    Thank you for the rep point, it's nice to recieve when I give up my time for the community.

    Cheers,

    Lem :)

    Could you make me one, leminsc? I have had an idea in mind for a while, but I'm not quite graphically telented enough, but it appears that you are.

    There's only 3 I'd like you to incorporate lightning bolts(in the middleground), a female archer wearing Nightingale armor, and the following picture. There's a bunch of different versions of varying qualities on the internet just search up Nikola Tesla letterhead. feel free to mess with things on the letterhead, Just the basic design of something like that for a background I guess!

    I know, I just thought to bring in the letterhead there because of my forum name, I can't wait to see what he comes up with here.

    Ok cool.

    Right, so to confirm a few things. Regarding the picture you posted, do you want it to remain unchanged and for me to use that as a background (or one of better quality online) or is it the "spirit" of the image you want me to capture?

    Second, i'm gonna go and learn how to make lightning bolts because that's not something i can do (yet) so i'm glad you want it - anything to get me to learn something new - don't worry though, i'm a fast study and i'll make sure it looks up to scratch!

    Third... female archer in nightingale armour... that might be tricky as it is very specific. If you can find an image that matches that description then i'd be grateful if you you let me know where it is so I can store it on my drive. If not then I can only hope we have someone on here who can do a hi-res pc screenshot for us...?

    This one sounds complicated for me - and thus I can't wait to get cracking! :D

    Yeah you might be new, but everybody had to start somewhere, right? I'm glad you liked it though, I really am. There was some new techniques in there for me and i'm glad it paid off in the end :)

    Uh, I guess it's kind of like the spirit of the image, something like that I guess, I just liked the fact that it was tied in with my name. Possibly his image for the nightingale.

    Ok right,

    I'm working on it now. There is a small chance it might be ready tonight (it's 03:01am here), and i'm having trouble incorporating the Nikola Tesla image in a meaningful way, but we shall see. If I can't find a good way of using it I will have to use a different background.

    Also I found a nightingale image I want to use (not the one you found, but it was a great image), so that part is sorted. And obviouslt i figured out how to do lightning, so i'm back off to work on some ideas.

    Hi Tes,

    This is where i'm at, and I have to stop for today, and at the moment i've ran out of ideas. I present two options. One with what seems to be your favourite colour

    nikolatesla2.jpg

    ...and the second one, a more colourful variety.

    nikolatesla3 copy.jpg

    EDIT:

    And a third one (my favourite) with some adjustments over the first to, namely some placement and effect changes, as well as depth of view adjustments.

    nikolatesla4 copy.jpg

    What do you think? As always, i'm happy to make changes.
