I like the Vegeta one, it IS simple but its fine anyways

I dont like the brolly one for the main reason of I hate renders on adobe, I rarely use Lighting efx, I use cloud, but I never never use lens flare, not matter how good ya sig is, a lens flare will ruin it (I know you did not use one, but just a tip :D)

Try downloading some Brushes, they can make a sig look very nice, I will have Ryoko get you some links :P (he knows tons)

also find some tuts on how too cut out images well, a well cut image makes all the different, if its done poorly (showing white or black or whatever the background was) it will end up ruining it

Ohh I went on abit..

well, lycos.co.uk is a good host for sigs, I use it and it works perfectly!

For the sig, a nice clean start, the colors match the txt looks quite good with it, same with the pics, u just need to work a bit on ur bg's , something u will learn over time! Try out a lot of things and u'll get there!

Your picture quality is PERFECT can't get any sharper pics than those. The only two things I can critique and since your starting don't take em personally.

-Need to Download some texts all the default ones Suck bad.
-Need to develop BG skills and your sigs would look nice

As I said don't take these personally since you 'just' started. But so far It looks like you have potentiel.

*EDIT*- If you need an image host pm me the images you want hosted, I'll be glad to host them.

the quality of ur pics is great! Only thing I could suggest, is the font. Of course backgrounds make sigs, fonts I believe play a bigger role. But, that's me, I mean - look at my sigs *cough* blow nuts *cough*. Yea...

ur current one has a bit too much white, for me I like the "runner" one better, while I'm sceptical on your backgrounds, the font u use for ur sigs look very good, many ppl have problems with it but it looks great on ur sigs!

u got decent at makin sigs real fast, took me like a year to get as good as i am now and im still not that great :(

most of ur sigs are decent, and not to crouded, simple is good. But try to stay away from using tutorials to much, invent ur own stuff.

HELLO!

Polytech has taken over my social life lately and my server went bung :S I got my sigs up and saw your message and thought 'id love 2 comment' :)

Good job dude Really well done!

Have a go at larger sigs! I did all my first ones larger cause i was told a great tip ;) If u use biger sigs at the start u learn 2 use higher quality pics and have a better sence of layout then u make them smaler and thay look ausom! If ya want give it a go :D

Althow i dont think u really need it cause yours r better than most of my ones :P

ill hopfully be able 2 make sigs again soon but for now.......... Work for poly DAMIT!!

hmm, it has potential, but try to stay away from lens flares, I dont think it makes it look better in this pic. Try to work a bit more on it, it looks a little empty now

LOL really? I've seen the exploding squares alot, thats a tutorial, also the "circuits" on in the background of your anubis sig, is a tutorial. Don't use tutorials? I can go get the links to show you use tutorials lol..

Sorry I just had to point that out...its too obvious. :devgrin:
