RE: new/first forum signature...
Hi all star, your sig looks very good - the character, the positioning, the mutually harmonious colours. Just the "NO3 ALL STAR" part feels a little too heavy to me. Also it would be great to have the character a bit more dimensional giving the whole sig this cool room feeling, otherwise he looks rather flat.

As for dimensions, I don't know the exact size used most often for sigs, but certainly it's a lot smaller, like 500px by 150px. Generally speaking, don't kill the forum or screen. Tongue

haha, thanks for the feedback.
I think 200 x 500 should work perfectly.

400x200 is usually the dimension I use for sigs, but I vary at times, that is very big for a forum sig, looks more like a banner.

Now the border on your render/stock is sterrible it's pixelated, and the edges of your stock is as well, and needs a major fix, also instead of using a border, just give that a gaussian blur, and have it be a glow instead. Also all I see behind that is just brushes, and text I think you need to add a few more stocks for the background, or at least some gradients. Also I don't see why you added water with that abstract light streaks, they don't mix with that gaming text/feel. I personally don't like this at all, and would throw it out, but I did the exact same thing when I first started making web layouts.

All star, now it's a completely different sig. The previous one was much better, don't you agree? What's good the new size doesn't break the forum's layout. Smile

Can you please make a post where your previous sig is attached.

Yeah that ones much better.

I think the render is still a bit big, and the text "from the shadow he appears" would be great to have a "Splatter Text Effect" given too it, as the that no3 all star text, I don't like the effect, and would change it, but it does flow with the banner itself (I'm saying banner, cause it's still way to big for a sig)
