there's nothing special to it, just use a program of your choice. IE; Photoshop, Gimp, MS paint etc.. you can choose to use a picture that's already been made and edit it to your liking, or make your own and add whatever you feel like adding to it. Siggies aren't that complicated. Good day.

well depending on your understanding of the program no they are not that hard, BUT there are tutorials out there, a ton of them, a good reason to look into tuts are if you are a begginer, or if your just looking for new techniques.

depending on the program you decide to use, its just a simple google search away.

example: ps sig tut (abrieviation for photoshop signiture tutorials)

so basically just taking your image editing program and put sig tut at the end and look for one that you think looks good, and maybey do begginer sig tut just to look at some of the easier to do techniques.

also if you dont want to fork out the cash (or cant) for photoshop, then gimp is supposed to be a good alternative since its free. there may be others out there but everyone that i know either use gimp or photoshop. (i cant really give you much info on gimp since i have never used it, ive always had photoshop)

If you plan on making signatures then I would suggest you to try looking for guides/tip and tricks on the following websites:

pimped-pixels.net/
gfxforums.net
sig-lab.com/forum.php

Making a signature is not that easy as everyone says, sometimes it takes time if you don't have any kind of idea on what you want to create, but on the other hand signatures takes a bit of creativity in order to make one.

the reason i doubt you made that is
1. its an obvious advertisment for another forum but doesnt link to anything.
2. you claim youve never made a sig before, and your first choice is and animated sig, not to mention a fairly decent flow especially for you saying its your first
3. the quality/style for all the sigs in the animation are completely different, meaning it wouldve taken quite a while just to make the sig portion. (first is just a render on a bg, second is a slightly faded render over a bg, third has some smudging and some effects done to the render, fourth just looks like a stock is taking up the full space, and last one is similar to the first except with a bit of the render erased.)
the only reason im digging into this is that as a GFXer myself, i highly dislike it when people post sigs, claiming that they made, when they didnt.
