Sorry artist but it dosnt really strike me as a military theme =<

Here are the guidelines:

Quote:
A uniform
A weapon that a soldier would use (tank, airplane, cannon, that kind of thing)
A Mech
A battlefield (fighting, combat, warzone)
Characters with military parts (Think Strike Witches or other cybernetic styled characters)
Special Forces characters (commandos, swat, sniper)
As nice as it is it dosnt really feature any of the above.

Any heres my final entry.

Well I guess it's not really clear that half of my signature is a weapon. Saishū Heiki Kanojo (最終 兵器 彼女, Saishū Heiki Kanojo, lit. "She, the Ultimate Weapon" or "My Girlfriend, the Ultimate Weapon"), and the use of "weapon" is not figurative.

EDIT: This brings up something. Would the "weapon" in my current signature be considered a weapon? Hehe. You know--mahou shoujo "weapons."

Um, is it military enough? I know I kinda went the indirect approach...

I really like the transparent top and the render is just win!

Anyways, here's the same render that I was working on:

Worked on it last night and was planning on editing it more later tonight, but I'll prolly start up on my backup renders! CnC still appreciated~
I think it's a pretty good sig Marina!

Mahou weapons - no.

I missed this one before:



It's not very military, bit it is a space uniform. For something like this, you'd want to find something more like a fighting unit.



She's a weapon, but this is not communicated in the signature. You can't rely on knowledge of a character to fit the theme.



A city bombing I assume? I think maybe the flashes are a bit too quick, maybe add some smoke in the background?




About the theme:

I think maybe it would be easier for some to think of things like "wartime", "combat", "battle", "marching", "giant weapons", etc. Peaceful images aren't bad, but they are more difficult to find images for. Perhaps things like "remembrance", "honor", "duty", "victory", "defeat", and other such words might help too.

Remember that themes aren't always directly tied to the image you use, but also in how you present that image. The sum of the parts, if you will.

Battle field uh?

Looks good, Solace is right, the smoke would be a cool add, you should check the Avatar/ sig tutoril thread's index, KiNA have a tutorial for that trick

The only thing I see wrong is that the render is kinda hard to make out. . .kinda blends TOO well.

Hi everyone

This is my first participation . I found a good art, so I did a render, and used it.

Wait.

Now I'm confused. Solace tells me that my image isn't military enough (even though that is KOS-MOS's military uniform) yet Drake is saying that as long as it has a weapon a soldier could use its game.

The first part is because of knowledge. Not everyone knows that that uniform is the KOS-MOS military uniform. I didn't know it, I'm sure others don't know it. People need to immediately know upon looking at your sig, ah! That's a military uniform! instead of just thinking hm, a chick in some suit with a weapon (yours falls in the latter imo).

The second part that I bolded doesn't really make sense to me...

Either way, I would take Solace's word since he's the sotm mod.
