Here's my first attempt at a sig banner, done without any help. I just recieved an older version of photoshop from a friend a week ago and have been playing around.

I'm pretty happy with it overall, except I couldn't get the big text block to look right IMO, but I really wanted to work that quote into it... oh well.

(BTW: The japanese text down the right side is the anime [Higurashi no Naku Koro ni] and the text on the tree is the character's name)

I'm sorry for not rating anyone else, I don't feel qualified to do so, yet.

Thanks.

EDIT: Taking Darkjester's advice and rating.

Ice Climbers: Very crisp for an animated sig. I can't help but smile when I see that hair wiggling around and the expressions of Tsukasa and Kagami. I also like how the movement draws your attention right to your username. - 9/10

I think it looks pretty good. What version photoshop is it? Anything 7.0 and above is pretty good. Even I use 7.0 (oh you'll have to rate a signature if you're gonna answer that lol). Old, but reliable. CS2 has too many features that I don't need. = P

You have a good choice of fonts all around. And I like the abstractness of it all. I mean, the black-white background to the left is as difficult to see clearly as the text on the right. So I think it all fits. The character in the middle is pushed forward because she's the only one in color, so that works.

For a first attempt, Xel, it's pretty well made and thought out. 9/10

@Xel :
First attempt? Wow you've got some talent there! It has a really nice composition and color choosing. But at first glance i didn't notice the text "Xel" on the bottom right. I think you should do something with the "X".

Score : 9.3/10

@Xel: Rate or Die.... lol, better edit that post before it gets deleted... u can't post here unless u rate somebody... (each time) and don't be afraid to be honest and just use your personal judgement, nobody's a pro or perfect here, just something we do in our free time...

Saber-chan: nice style... though the middle images may have been better if they weren't transperently blended... still nice... 7.8/10
Xel: wouldn't have been able to tell that it was your first sig... it fits nicely and has a nice theme... 8.2/10
Zaris: has an ominous feel to it... a bit simple & maybe TOO blurry.... still its pretty cool 7.5/10

Everyones first attempt always seem to look better than mine.

Xel - Very nice first attempt. Your name is kind of hard to see there since it kind of blends into the background. The black and white background followed by the colored image in the middle is nice. Overall, nicely done.
darkjester - Going with the summer flow just like your avatar.

RedFrame 8/10. It's really cute. Your original also scores an 8/10 from me, I think it's even cuter. ^^

It's funny how that works, however it's also strange you're getting my old signature, I had updated it long before I posted.

If It still shows up as the angel, here it is from my photobucket:

@Deathkillz Nice chosen crop and scale. I like it 8/10

@saphyre My my... That's how i like to see lucky star :P And it's even animated 8/10

@ankoku Looks good. Nice border to. 7.5/10

@darkjester Like the background. Fits really well with the time. Love the render to. Only pity is the edges of the background seems to be a bit jagged. 8/10

@Saber-chan I like the overall look. But the used source seems to be of bad quality. Bit of a pitty. Otherwise it would look alot better. 7.5/10

@Mr.Kurosaki Looks nice. Only thing missing is a border . 7.5/10

@Tatsumiko I liked your old one more. But meh.. i never really liked Disgaea. 7.5/10

@Ice Climbers Another one of those from Lucky star scenes but than animated. Been seeing alot of those. 7.5/10 PS: your first sig attempt looks quite good imo.

@Xel Quite a good one for your first one. I'm not gone waste your bandwhich by showing my first :P 7.5/10

@Zaris 9/10 First Hayate no Gotoku signature i spotted here!!! I love the overall look. And really nicely done with the text to. You wouldn't have that version in color would you? I think it would look even better in color, but i could be wrong ofcourse.

@Crystal Requiem 7/10 A bit to simple. But looks nice.

As for my own. It's Arcueid Brunestud from Tsukihime. A tribute to my new found goddess. The anime was awesome. And Arcueid has something that is just... HAWT Unfortunately the raw used to cut out Arcueid wasn't to good. But i'm quite happy with the outcome.

Crystal Requiem - The quality of the pic is very good, the crop isn't so bad. Pity is doesn't have a border.
Sephi - Love the background. Not too bad overall.

Me - Changed the left picture to something a little more...

Cute ^^

Just fixed my Bleach sig (got rid of the animation, and lowered the quality). It should work for a while until I get some time on my hands after finals.

@ Sweet .. Nice simple sig..

@ Shanatan Nice animation work.. Altho it would be tad better if the animation is gone from the right side.. its too isolated making it a bit out of place IMO

@ GGxt .. you whore c4d rendered to much IMO.. but this one isn't your best work =/ ..

@ Katisu .. left side is too empty... and WTF did Mayuri get there..

@ Ice .. It livessss!!!! got name placement, flawless animation ^^b

@ Saphyre ^^b Just a tiny whine.. her fingers got cropped a bit there.. otherwise, excellent sig ! You just stole 2 of my best kagami sig material

@ Jester .. weird shape FTW ... there's Rei, there's Asuka = total win .. BG is totally random tho

@ Tatsu .. Given my eternal hatred to fake transparency .. >.>

@ Sephi .. Very very nice ... but then again, you get extra + 100 points for using my Arc

@ Crystal .. Nice, albeit a tad empty.. very sharp sig tho .. I like it very much ^^b

@ Red .. Quality kinda low IMO =/ .. And your first sig OWNS!!!!! .. SO cute =3

@ Zaris .. hmmm... you have the skill to turn ordinary pic to something look like a crop from a wall .. Is that bad? No, because walls usually have a good composition for BG if you know how to crop them

@ Xel .. For a starter sig you've done excellently well.. I almost thought that is Klash's work lol.. I mean.. lots of kanji, Rena as main stock .. Kudos.. i look forward for your later sig

@ KiNA ... Sig warming up #2 ..

And as usuall I get the last post of the page ;_;.. and peoples will forget to rate mine because no one go back to previous page in this thread ._.
