That was a quick entry. Now I know that I can't compete with you, your sig style is amazing. I'll try though.

You guys are right. I fixed it back to 5,000 SP. I created this thread by memory since it's been so long.

Getting kinda lazy these days with sig making. :lol:
Sometimes simplicity is all you need to win a SOTW. That sig looks great.

I want to make a Super Smash Bros. (series) signature so I've been practicing cutting out renders properly for the last couple days. I don't know if this is the proper way to do it because I usually get some aliasing.

First, you want to create your alpha channel (Layer>Transparency>Add Alpha Channel). Click on the fuzzy select tool (if the colors on the character match the colors of the background you probably want to decrease the threshold). Then you click on the background, press Delete to delete the background and use Select>Grow>set value to 1 or 2 and press Delete again.

Even then, I sometimes can't get everything for the more complex renders so you have to go in and manually erase with the eraser tool.

I might have to pass. It depends on what games are shown and whether or not we get new screenshots or official art to work with.

I assumed it was only trailers that were released.
