I'm probably WAY too proud of this icon, but man, it was fun to make! :D

Haha, fantastic. Naked!Captain is win. I'd suggest using a slightly bolder font, though. The words kind of fade into the background.

Yeah, I tried to find where to bold the font, but I couldn't get it. I'm still learning the program. I was lucky I figured out how to get the layering to work right. ;)

Gimp.

I put in the text and couldn't find a place to make it bolded. I could have put the words in using Paint, but I'm sure it's possible using Gimp, I just have to explore it a bit more.

EDIT: I have the dumb today. Forgive me.

You should try ImageForge. I haven't figured out layers in it yet, but it's way easy to use.

No worries! I do all my icons at irishaicons with it, if you wanted to see what it can do.
