That render is pretty ****e. And those bright colors make me want to poke my eyes out. You need to find a tut on color composition.

And I'm saying that since you're still working on it you should get rid of those awful colors and get a different render because even your prototype looks awful.

It's a fair start but the solid colours don't really work that well. I did similar stuff when I first joined but I'd like to think I've got better with time because of the input I was given. Barney may seem a little harsh at first, but it's entirely constructive.

What are you using to make them? I initially used Paint (shame on me ^^) but I've swapped to Paint.NET. I'd recommend either that or GIMP.

MS paint sigs ftw

@Mous4u: The idea: You should start using a photo editing program. You can even find some free ones. Anything is better than MS paint.

Few people know how and don't even bother to take the time to create something nice in Paint. Nor should you. Last time I will say it: get Photoshop (or the GIMP, though I still recommend Photoshop). Without that program you cannot even begin to hope to ever make a nice signature. With that program, you can actually make a proper background instead of two solid colors that have no composition whatsoever.

What is [very] wrong with your current signature:
- The stock is very low quality, plus the cutting of the stock is even crappier (jagged lines, FTL!)
- The background bites someones head off, is uninspired and boring. Get something going there, use brushes (= Photoshop)
- The fonttype is extremely boring, get some new ones at www.dafont.com
- The typography is very blurry, use a proper program (= Photoshop)
- Color composition is non-existant. Blue, Red and Yellow just don't mix like that, it needs blending first of all.
- Unless you are doing a 'out-of-the-box' signature, always put a border or stroke around the signature.

My advice: get Photoshop or the Gimp, restart the signature, get some tutorials on brushing, try again. No point in posting a work-in-progress that's going to end up worse than the signature you have now. As soon as you get Photoshop, I and most other people here can help you make something nice(r). Can't help you with the Gimp though, never worked with it myself.

it lacks green, making the colour composition very unbalanced. Add green to the left side, and it will be balanced.

Adding some green to the signature will still not fix what is essentially flawed: the background. There's nothing interesting going on there, it is static. Solid. Bland. Uninspired. Boooring.
