    Started on paint then paint shop --- and then PS. I used to make crappy banners for forums and stuff lol and then I realised Paint was crap so tried psp which was also crap and then PS was perfect.

    Well, was part of a forum, saw the awsome sigs. This was years ago. The I asked how they made them. Got CS2, and I went at it, now four years later, I'm going off to college for graphic design.

    yeah like a lot of others have said, I visited a forum and saw the sigs.

    For me though, it was a computer help forum. I then followed links on their site to GIMP, and I searched and found GIMPtalk and from there I learned about this place and NSL and such.

    GIMP FTW

    i saw other people doing it, and it looked pretty fun. just...when i started i was probably the worst ...ever! i can confidently say i've improved tons. but still have a long way to go.

    why i got into gfx? - just looked fun.

    Well, I download Photoshop (after seeing some cool sigs and I wanted to make some), and just looked for tutorials. I found gamerender.com from good-tutorials.com. It seemed like a nice place, so I joined! And here I am, two and a bit years.

    GFX have always been something I've wanted to get into, ever since 2002. But I never ever gave it time and effort to actually try, because I felt it would take forever, either that.. or that It would be too complicated and I wouldn't truly get anything.

    I finally ended up joining, after a friend told me about the great friendly community here. Finally gave it a shot, two days ago and I've already learned a lot. Hoping to continue learning as time progresses :D so that's pretty much my story.

    I started on GIMP. Weird enough I had no inspiration to make gfx. I just started going it, making ---- tags one at a time. Then I joined GR and got photoshop and here I am today, pwning those noob canvases.
