I will be showing you guys a simple tut...

 

1) Open up a new document (I used 400x150)

 

2) Fill background with black.

 

3) Get out some good brushes, I used Jashins Brushes Set 14 from DeviantArt.com

 

4) now brush with white over the black, you should have something like this

5) Go to Image --> adjustments --> Auto Contrast.

 

6) Make a new layer and fill it with black, brush again. Go to Image --> adjustments --> Auto Contrast. Now set the opacity to about 63%.

 

7) Repeat step 6 about 5-6 times, but for your last brushing layer, set it to "overlay" with opacity to 100%.

 

8) Now that you are done with brushing, find a good render to add to your sig, I will be using conker. Put the image in your sig and set it to "luminosity". Here is what I got

9) Now add some text. Im not that good with text but I am using the font Waltograph UI, that was with the Walt Disney font at dafont.com 

 

10) I used these settings for the font:

 

Color of Font: White

Drop Shadow: Default Settings but with distance at 2 pixels

Inner Shadow: Default Settings but put distance at 4 pixels

Outer Shadow: Default

Bevel and Emboss: Default but with Size at 0 pixels

Satin: Default

Stroke: Default but with 1 pixel size and black color

 

This is what I have now

11) Now I am goin to add subtext. I used Visitor font from dafont.com. I used these settings:

 

Color: White

Stroke: Default but with 1 pixel size and color black

 

This is what I got

12) Ok, now its time to add color to your sig. We are going to do a multi-colored effect to the sig. Go to Image --> Adjustments --> Color Balance. I used these settings:

 

Midtones: +40, 0, -30

Shadows: +40, 0, -30

Highlights: +40, 0, -30

 

Then go to Filter --> Render --> Clouds

I got this:

13) To get the multicolored look, do that again but with different colors. Go to Image --> Adjustments --> Color Balance. I used these settings:

 

Midtones: -20, +30, 0

Shadows: -20, +30, 0

Highlights: -20, +30, 0

 

Now go to Filter --> Render --> Clouds

14) I am going to do one more layer of color balance, which will give the sig a good multicolored effect. Image --> Adjustments --> Color Balance. I used these settings:

 

Midtones: 0, -20, +20

Shadows: 0, -20, +20

Highlights: 0, -20, +20

 

Now go to Filter --> Render --> Clouds

 

15) Almost done! All we have to do now is add a border. Make a new layer then hit CTRL+A . Go to Edit --> Stroke. I used: Width=2 pixels, Color=Black, Location=Center, Everything else default.

 

16) On that same layer go to blending options. Go to stroke. Use 2 pixels, color=White, Blend Mode=Overlay, Opacity at about 63%.

 

 

Finished product:
