The pic of A-19 is very low-res, and the pic of Gero is usable, but probably won't look good on a sig. And you should try to get a higher post count before requesting things from the community. It makes it look like you only registered for the purpose of getting a sig.
Yeah PNG's only show transparent in Firefox, not in Explorer. Might I suggest that you take that render, use Gaussian blur (3.0) and then go to edit>fade gaussian blur and use the sof or hard light blending mode? It will greatly increase the quality of the picture, you can also use different blending modes, but I usually use soft or hard light.
Oh and by the way Amnestometh, you have no right to say that someoneÂ´s first post canÂ´t be a sig request. There is NO rule that doesnÂ´t allow someone to ask for a signature even if they have only a couple of posts, so please donÂ´t go tell people they canÂ´t request for things if they only have a few posts.
Hmmm, you didn't use the right blending mode, looks kinda weird blurred right now. What did you do? Because when I use the blur/blending mode thing I get this:
(Note, before I get any problems with it....I did not make this signature, all credits go to Dark_Vegeta13, I just made this to show what I get when I blur and blend it.)
As you can see, It doesn't look blurred as yours does Dark Vegeta, but it does look higher quality.(In my opinion atleast >_>) Ow, and don't mind the white, I couldn't use .png as my photoshop made the transparent background all black >_<
