Nice. How did you cut out the guys? Photoshop "pen tool"?

Here's one I did.

quick links--> edit signature

and to cut out the players, i used the polygonal lasso tool, then went back with various sized erasers to clean up sharp areas. the whole thing took about 2 hours, its not hard, just time consuming. my friend is put the arizona/illinois game on dvds (they recorded it in hd) and is going to put this as the menu background.

Thanks, folks. I actually knew that. Had a look this morning before work. What I meant to ask was about avatars. Can't seem to figure that one out.

That polygonal lasso tool can be a pain. I use the pen tool...easier to manipulate; however, yours turned out most excellent. Nice work!

Re: Fighting Illini Wallpaper

The trolls on other boards is part of the reason I started posting here. I don't mind intelligent fans from other teams coming over and posting but its the people that come to just piss you off and talk bad nonsense that really get on your nerves.

GO ILLINI!

The first big picture on this page I think says a lot.
Doesn't say thank you, but it gets the point across.

Are you talking about the one above that I made? If so, I'm glad you like it. I may do another one in a few days or so.
