Oooh, so pretty! My only problem with it is that it feels a little too chaotic, I think there's too much going on in the background.

It's actually intentional to make the subtext hard to read. Other sigs with that text style can make the font size even smaller. It's more for effect and design than for actual readability. Some people even put a bunch of dribble in there; I just chose to put something that makes sense.
Maybe I'll make even smaller, or erase altogether :S

PS : thank god for PSD files >>;
Overall image looks good, but I agree in saying that the text still needs fixing. The outer glow on it, as well as the color and brightness is distracting and draws my eyes away from the render, which should be the focal point. And I don't know if it's a photo filter or what, but the yellow tinge on everything is also making her skin a bit too yellowish, so I'd do a tiny bit of erasing on her features.

I disagree; the background is nicely balanced and does not overweigh the render. I also like the shortness on the sig length...I might take a page from your book and chop off a side of mine since it feels empty.
Awesome work as usual ichigo-sora ^_^

First of all it's a very nice entry. But... (the dreaded one )

For the love of ... don't make the text smaller. It's mean enough as it is.
I've had my encounters with nonsensical texts, usually involving my head, a wall and a whole lot of perpetual motion. Either way I think it's better if you're quite clear on whether it's supposed to be read or not. If you can guess right away what it is, like your nick or a name of a well known character, you can get quite creative with it. If it's just some text I'd rather use something else instead. There are a whole bunch of alternatives to using actual letters, bar codes, shapes, braille (it's redundant enough in a picture, albeit it has a slight undertone of inconsiderability).

As it is, it's just an unnecessary tease. It balances the main text nicely though so I'd rather consider options to the text rather than removing it altogether.

To nitpick a bit more the initial "P" could have better coloring. Now it get's a bit lost in the background. Slightly more contrast would be nice.

There's something in the coloring that's bothering me a bit as well. Towards the edges the coloring seems to turn a bit dull. The brighter blobs (what ever they are ) seem a bit too gray. Dropping the saturation works quite nicely but I'd give them a slight hue, maybe bluish or purple to spice up the color scheme a bit.

Haladflire65 I would go with ver1
Bea Rabbit I have to agree with Moonie on this one.
Sciel I would rework thre render, Reimu's skin look yellow.
Ichigo-Sora the only thing I could say is about the last e of Medecine, it could be more visible.

^ The entry is fine. Your signature isn't though, at 75,843 bytes over the limit (switch it to jpeg to save a lot of space).

Okay....
