A very useful tool for making original pictures is PaintShop Pro. I used it to make the above banner in just my third time trying it out. I recommend you get to know the lasso (free hand) tool. To get a free copy, click here. If you have the means, please run your art work through a compression program to help reduce its size. Thanx! Each week, I will choose a winner from all that week's submissions to win my Original Art Award. I will also post that winner's banner, logo, or whatever below for free for that entire week.
