That and it's 109.25 KB (111872 bytes) ... the current limit is 50,000 bytes. That would cost you a point.

Other than the blown out height and 109 KB girth, it's very nice. Personally, I wouldn't put anything in the white space except maybe a user-name (I'm a minimalist by nature (as you can see from my current signature image)). I would also thin out the border and use a different color...hmmm...that light green on the backside of her bathing suit would be neat to mess with.

Spoiler:
This is interesting. But like Catgirls said, it's too high, so maybe lower the girl down to where you think best fits. Definately hide the text at the bottom left because it looks like the kind of marker used on wallpapers and artbooks. If you're going to lower the girl down, of course it's going to happen. But I love how you extracted her from whatever background she might have been in. Very successful.

Regarding the background, I'd suggest a beach theme with a little orange and blue. After taking a closer look, I notice the color of her behind still has traces of those tones. I like the border, but imo keep her contained within it. Shove the layer of the girl behind the border layer because currently, I see that her leg gets cut off before it touches the border bottom. = |

Of course, most, if not all, of the things I'm pointing out will get fixed once you lower her down a few pixels. lol

Spoiler:
ooooo .. I would suggest going for soft brushing BG or just plain beach BG.. But yea.. dont think you can use it here as stated by CG.

Edit:
@ Zaris .. but cutting her lower part detract the sexyness in it =(

====
@ Deathkillz

My old Caster sig is still up there.. on imageshack hosting ... Somewhere .. Lost the one on my HD since my last HD failure ='(

Good eye on the diffusion stuff.. yea.. that, or my sig is >50Kb

Your CC sig

hmmm... Lulu's presence is annoying .. lost him >.< (Did I sound a bit jealous there ? )
hmm.. that bubble on foreground CC's hair, if you can extend it to the BG as well .. hmmmm ...
If you insist on keeping Lulu .. put it near your name ..
C.C font really dont fit IMO.
Not really CCecchi enuff

EDIT
=x
...Screw borders .. I forgot about them

Cool.. looks better then your last one..
The font kind is kind of hard to read.. but who cares, it looks great..

You sure have good ideas when it comes to where to put your name

Anyway there are 2 lil' things.. first Kallen has her hair a lil' choped at the ends... and then there's that line that seperates ODE GEASS from KALLEN.... it's just a lil' too thik IMO..

Ok, I did the resizing and I also edited the bottom so you didn't see the copyright stuff. I haven't put a background on it yet cause I'm now debating whether I should use this sig or not considering the resized one seems so small. Tell me what you guys think.

Ok, to be honest, I like your sig, but you should somehow have your avatar and sig somehow connect. For instance when I look at your sig, it reminds me of summer or spring, nice stuff you know.

But then when I look at your avatar... it's like "WELCOME TO HELL...SING." Maybe you should have something more related to your avatar. Something consistent that you would like to display to the viewers. I'm not saying to use the same character or anime. Just something a little more in that sense of nature.

Maybe I'm thinking too much, either way the sig looks good.

As you can see I don't have a sig, that's cause I keep changing my avatar.

This is an alternative signature. I have some kind of feeling that someone is already using this. Also kayos you're right, it kinda looks retarded with the alucard avatar so as you can see I changed it. Anyways, tell me if you think this would be better to use than my current.

Hello all, this is my first post, so go easy on me.

This is a signature I made a few years back. I'd like your opinions, please.

Spoiler:
Hmm... this alternate sig, it's been used before. At least I think I've seen it but for the background of the sig, I don't know how to say this. It's like the character is floating on air, it doesn't make any sense why she's in a bikini floating on air. Sorry if I'm being mean. I say just stick to your current one for now but that's just my opinion.

You could add something to the background of your current one (in the white box), I could see a horizon of clouds where her butt's at with a sea line right under the clouds. Make it like watercolor marks to fade it to the back but still visible.

Is your avatar the same image from your sig, just mirrored? You know you don't have to use the same character right? As long as there's a sense of connection...

PhoenixWave:

Since I'm a fan of DBZ as well I'll take it easy on you. I really don't have a problem with it except for the "i'm watching you" part. You could probably take that out and pull down the phoenixwave to the vertical center. After that I don't think I really have a problem with it. But as usual that's just my opinion.

I'm so happy that this thread is getting more and more popular with everyone.. Really, I do ..

=x
Edited to fit in BC's suggestion .. Put a border aswell .. And to Riker .. SPAACEEEEE He keeps bothering me on msn about putting some space inbetween the texts and the line. Her hair on top is cut unfortunately, the options are, cropping her top hair, losing 1 of her finger near the gun, reducing her size overall .. I choosen the 1st option as I feel that the size is just nice with the dimension. Resizing her would leave some empty spot .. and cutting her finger is not really an option for me .. I dont like 4 fingers girl .. so I cut half of her head .. hmmm... Sounds
Did you guys realize that this sig is actually filter based work? Only filter and layer blending mode is used..
Ok, I did use a sparkly brush on the BG .. just a bit >.<

Thank you for the suggestions, that pic is a few years old and I don't have the originals that I made the layers from anymore. I'm going to make a new one in a few days, so I'll take everyone's advice into account on the new one.

Oh, and as a side note: I don't think that the font I used originally had a capitol I in it.. because I seem to remember not liking that about it, as well.

Uhh.. BTW is that a spoiler you have there in your open parentheses.

gonna edit the original post, but in fact, the signature is already a spoiler XD (you should probably edit your quote as well XD)
Quote:


To me transparent metal looks weird.. plastic is ok.. but thinking of something that's metal, which would imply hard as hell, and transparent, which would imply thin as air, just sounds like paradox.. maybe if the sig had a different context a paradox would look good.... but not in this one.. it feels too unnatural..


Anyway I don't really understand what the issue with removing it.. are you saing it was part of the original source?! or something like that ........
in fact, i feel exactly the same way, though with anime, some clashing antipodes can be mixed, giving some special result.
as for the transparent metal, i think the "as light as air" is kinda right in some case (well, that's how i think about magical girls or such XD)

as for the cross, in fact, i put the device (this kind of melee weapon/staff) in each nanoha signature. that's why, i feel weird if i remove it altogether, while the 2 other sig from the same serie an structure still have their staff.
Quote:
Your skills at creating random stuff are excellent keep up the good work..
There's no need to modify the sig.. this is a thread to improve our skills not butcher our sigs.. nee~ (maybe just tweak them a lil')
Of course if you wanna I ain't stopping you ^__^
once i would like to be straight and determined when i'm threading some BG T_T
but well, we aren't really butchering, but i guess i spot my own flaws quite better with critics so, i won't hesitate for some changes XD
anyway, i updated some details like i said earlier. here
changes :
-schwertkreuz format
-minor brightness on hayate
-blending change with standby ready.


Quote:
Hayate sig as in the one above I presume..
Problem finding art ehh~
What character(s) from what series are you looking for
like i said, i tried to find some decent art of chrono, of the same serie (mahou shoujo lyrical nanoha), but that damn brat isn't covered at all by the artist fans T_T


since almost every sig have their critic done, i will only comment Kina's last sig, kallen one ^^

3) the C of code geass is a bit awkward, since it gives the impression that the C is also a part of "kallen stadfield", while there is a big gap between them. thus, it gives some weird feeling of a mistake or something (well that's my opinion >_<)

nothing wrong besides the above points, the signature, while being a bit monochromatic, has a pretty nice pattern of colors.
the ratio of the text and kallen is well done too.




as for me, i gave up the idea for a chrono signature, and tried another "text" signature of higurashi (again ? XD).
but this time, i'm really not convince entirely by the result, i had a damn hard time with rika...



details:
1) the right part is supposed to show the situation of rika : she has absolutely no freedom.
2) the texts are from the Himatsubushi-hen poem, the 2 last paragraphs. (again, i played a bit with the place and way to read. the first paragraph is written vertically and must be read from the right to the left, while the second is read from the left to the right.)

i agree this signature seems rather weird without any knowledge about the serie, but this was done on purpose ^^;

LMAO @ the filename.. I 1st read it as Bankai

Excellent sig. Some flaws IMO..
1) bottom mid, where the lying char meet the neck of the left char, its kinda like crop in the mid and it really really bothers me.
2) the right side .. the kanji (?) and the quote when they cry... and the tiny box girl on chain feels a bit alienated.. If I were to rate the sig.. the right side would make this sig lost to your current 1 you using honestly (but still higher then your Nanoha sig sets) .. Shows how much I love your current 1

===
Regarding my sig ..
1) yea.. but then, I dont know how to to fill the bottom right spot with anything
2) its A's tail .. from my name KiNA
3) opinion rejected ... the gap is sufficient

Should change my current sig for av + sig combo >.< .. but I still love my Caster. ;_; She's crying ;_;

errr, i didn't really understood what you meant, though i worked a bit around that area anyway XD
Quote:

well, i felt it could ruin a bit the mood, while in the other hand, it improves a lot (indeed, you need to understand what is going on first )
i thought it wouldn't be too much "out of nowhere" but... what about transparency then?

Quote:

huho... thanks but...it is really THAT good? XD
well, i was scared i would be utterly murdered because of the 180° change again (well, compared to the nanoha sig of course), so i thought it would be butchered/bad rated because of the uncommon set of pictures and blending XD

anyway, i tried some tweeks around, here is the V2 :



-Some changes in the right
-while working on the middle bottom, i felt the face wasn't really expressing its full sorrow, so i displaced it a bit. while the tears are harder to notice, i think the empty eye expression is improving the "hopeless" mood.

well, i will be straight : i think Kallen sig beat mercilessly your current caster sig.
This is only my opinion thought, but the ratio in the caster sig is quite unbalanced (mainly because the lack of "real" BG and the background picture taking a HUGE place, without really giving an additionnal mood/message behind the main picture) while the tear is pretty well done (no contest), the picture quality suffered a lot because of the gif format (can't be helped...) but, well, indeed, use the one you like ^^

Yes.. perfect. I dont know about you, but I'll try to sharpen the eye a bit more so it stands out. But, that just a minor. Now if only I can understands those words @_@ ...

Dont really wanted to post this, since its really involves no work beside the extracting job ( which I failed miserably -- Thats what you got when doing the extraction at 2 am in the morning) And I guess I better repair the face as well.. darken blending mode sux ( more like I did ).. But, I'm happy .. it do work as promotion signature. Iroha really needs more love, the series is top quality ^.^
