Default How to make a "Hold a Sign" Avvie using MS Paint. ~As requested by imaginefun.~

So this is how you make your character hold a sign, like you see in the shops, using MS Paint. This was requested by iris. (:

Okay so,

1.) Open up MS Paint. (Really? xD)

2.) Open up a picture of your character. (Preferably one that has one colored background.)
NOTE~ Make sure your hands are down!

3.) Take the "Rectangle" tool and draw a box a little below the waist so that it's just covering part of your arms. (Make sure to pick your sign color now.)

Here's the tools:
Click the image to open in full size.


Here's how it should look so far:
Click the image to open in full size.

OPTIONAL!! To add a border, just use the "Rectangle" icon, place it on the first option, choose your color and outline the box.

Here's how mine looked. (I will NOT use this for the final product.):
Click the image to open in full size.

4.) Using the "Text" icon, place a text box in your other box. Then, choose your font, color and type in your text.
NOTE~ Make sure to check the second option!

Here's how it should look before you type. (The red box is just showing where the text box is and is NOT part of the box itself.):
Click the image to open in full size.


Here's how it looks once you type:
Click the image to open in full size.

5.) Using the "eyedrop" tool, select part of your characters skin. This step is to prepare to make the hands.

Here's the picture:
Click the image to open in full size.

6.) Using the "Paint brush," draw some ovals where you imagine the hands to be. (This can be near the top or to the sides. I did mine on top.)

Here's the picture:
Click the image to open in full size.

7.) Save it as a .png file.



Here's my end result:

That's so awesome!

I don'y believe you can do it with MS Paint. I used Paint.NET. Sorry. If you want, you can download Paint.NET. Its free and easy to use!
