If any of you guys want to improve in making sigs then I'll compile some tuts for y'all.

Since I'm too lazy to make a tutorial about the bare basics, I'll just link to tutorials made by other people.

You're talking about your kai ni generator, right?

I think that's more of a layout thing. To be honest, I can't really say much about layouts, other than avoiding clutter and not leaving too much blank space.

If you really want, I can try and come up with a sample for you to work with.

artificial Yep, looking for some ideas to improve the Kai Ni Generator. I'm actually pretty happy about it at the moment, but it never hurts to look for advice from an actual artist. It would be great but it's not a big deal.

I'll give you some pointers when I'm able to come up with a sample. The reason why I can't really give you tips right now is because when dealing with layouts, I just go with my art sense if you know what I mean.
