Or I can't ignore the text], you might also want to try moving it to balance the top and bottom.

Colors are an interesting blend, but they feel a overly saturated right around Marisa and Reimu's hair/eyes.
I'm not sure what going on between the pinkish smudge by and onto the left side of your sig. I don't know if its the shapes and textures which seem off, but they oppose each other in my eye.
Agreed with Oceanblue on your text. It completely draws my eyes away from the focal point and the name, while yours and completely fine, has a different connotation from the moods I get in the rest of your sig. "Evil" Rick and these two lovely ladies? My, my, my!

Thnaks for the opinions. Okay tried to fix out the text's distractiona nd the blurishness. Perhaps it'll make the sig more clear and focused.

@ Evil Rick a clear improuvement over the first version.The oonly thing bothering me for now is the yellow area of the background near Marisa's (the witch) hair.

Most likely a final entry. And yes the text is intentionally hard to read.

Icy, your retired status doesn't harm your skills any Sig is looking good!
The dark blues around Reimu (hair, lower skirt) look a bit on the oversaturated side and I don't really have a sense of depth since everything in the sig is pretty clear and sharp all the way across. Gotta say though, the colors are gorgeous.
You going to have text in this sig? Would like to see what you'd have.
Not sure yet about the border, since right now it feels like it's closing in this small view of a grandiose setting. At most I might just border the top/bottom or just the sides.

At 58 KB (59,392 bytes) your entry is over the size limit.

First of all saving it as GIF greatly reduces quality (GIFs only have 256 colors, JPEG accept around 16 million). Secondly your entry is 500~ bytes over the limit (note the limit is measured in bytes, for precision). I don't think that's actually a problem since its such a small difference, but its up to evil Solace to decide.

Took Marina's suggestion and changed this a bit, made the bg less sharp against the character and changed the border,

barring any extreme circumstances, probably won't have time to change it so this will be my Final Entry

Compressed from 120814 bytes to 37011 bytes. Took a long time to figure out how to get a png that small without losing too much quality. It only got a little bit grainy at parts so that's good enough in my opinion. Saving it as a jpg completely destroyed the colors so i didn't use it.

Final entry.
