Much better, as now the theme is much more emphasized IMHO...

Font choice is straight up poor.. Also, your name totally clashing with the theme and feel .. My suggestion.. Use typewriter type font.. small.. and put it somewhere in the corner. The renderkinda feel slapped on the the BG.. Make the bottom seamlessly in the BG, while still visible would be nice ..

@ Ehko, interesting suggestion .. I'll see how it'll turn out.

@Ekho: ah I see what you mean by flow! This is really my first dive into brushes so I was just kinda seeing what they did, but now I know what I can do. The sig will remail peaceful, since they are dancing slowly in the screen. I might change my gradient since it flows top to bottom to go left to right now, not sure.

@Evil_Rick: yeah its simple since its my first vers Ill def try lighting effects since I never have used that before. The brushes Im keeping light, you can kinda see the star effects, again maybe I need to darken my bg alittle.

Thanks for the help guys!

A tad too bluish no? It's taking all the fantasy feeling away. Kudos for the nice pic btw.

That's some nice progress your getting
I agree with KiNA, font choice is bad tbh :x even in this draft. Maybe try something less cursive but a normal or older looking serif font.

Personally, I'd go ape-squat with effects at this point because im an fx person, but other than text, its practically finished.

also lol at squat dancing


<><><><><><><><><><>><><><><><>><><><><>

Draft 5:

Well, the characters look like they are wearing goth/aristocrat Victorian designs, which works well with Old English fonts, which tend to be serif mostly.

the text shadow helps blend it too

Imo its too modern looking, but that's just my opinion. If I had to suggest some fonts... maybe I would try: Felix Titling or even Federhozen (sorry to make you google them, i think the first one is a Windows preloaded one). Just to give some examples of fonts I think might blend with your theme. You may want to just go looking around like at dafont.com and find something similar.

edit: here, is a good one I sometimes use myself http://www.dafont.com/oldstyle-hplhs.font its even free for commercial use if your concerned with that like i am usually

Also, I should have said it earlier, but let me ask. Are you trying to match the text with the border or the signature? What I mean is are you trying to incorporate it into the sig or just leave it on top like you would a border. You can do either or, though my preference is with pushing them to blend with the sig. If you try to blend it with the border, then disregard what i was saying about old english fonts and try to make it part of the border instead.

Well, in my first tries I was trying to incorporate the text with the sig, but I wasn't getting the result I was seeking so, I decided to make it small and over the sig itself.

BTW: Thanks a lot for the fonts, I think I'm done
XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

Final Entry



(Any last minute opinion will be apreciated )

lol
Sync? as in the dancing to the left as the text moves left? If so, then if its actually not syncing, it fooled my eyes XD

The border I still don't like too much (not a fan of bevels :x, just personal thing i think though) but text is nice and flashy.
