So I was learning how to use GIMP a little better and I found the brick pattern, and for some reason it looked like an alley in New York for some reason. And I thought, "All this needs is some graffiti." Then an idea struck me. Why not do Piraka graffiti? So I went on BS01 and found Piraka promo signatures and scoured the internet for a BIONICLE graffiti style logo (harder to find than you would think!) and came up with this.

What do you think?

Well, um, all you did was paste a few images on top of another. To make it more like graffiti, I would suggest you put the brick wall texture onto the graffiti so it looks like it was painted onto the walll itself. Still, I can't do much better myself, so good job, I guess?

The signatures look like they are floating over your GIMP Brick Wall, not on it. I suggest you try and turn down the transparency on the signatures so it looks more like they are on the wall.

That's pretty cool, no offence but the graffiti looks sort of like stickers on the wall. Try to put a bit of texture in the words, but it looks good after all.

Oh. I haven't quite figured out how to do that yet.  :lookaround: Where do I do that? I would like to make this one of my backgrounds for my computer, so that would be helpful.

Well if you made each signature on it's own layer, or all the signatures on a different layer on the wall, you could go on the layers toolbar and tone it down.

It looks cool. What would make it really cooler, is make it look like an actual alley in New York, and put the graffiti on the brick walls. Pure artistic talent.

[color=#008080;]A masking layer witht the brick walls and the graffiti could work too - you'd just have to be careful to keep the colours.[/color]

Nice!

 

Also seems pretty interesting, I already can think of a few good uses for my next gen comics...

 

Could I use it? I'll give credit.
