Well here is my latest fail sig, it seems that I can't make any decent signatures and it's annoying really.

Version 1:


Version 2:


Version 3:


What do you think? Pretty fail right?

Basic yeah. Fail - personally, the line between failure & success stems from what you wanted to acheive in the first place.

If you wanted a simplistic peice that was straight to the point, you've done well. Although, the one issue I have is the balance between the bursty thing (I have no idea what the correct terms are xD lol) on the top half of the image, and the lack there-of on the bottom half. Add that together with the mirrored Cyndevia down the bottom, the look & placement of the main Cyndevia looks off-center & that does (for me at least) make me feel it truly is off balance.

But hey, what do I know, I can't make heads or tails of GIMP or PS lol

Here is version 2, I thought I'd tweak it a little bit more.

Hmm, I'm probably going to get slammed by the G&A veterans when they come along for my inputs xD

Um, V2 - the new, lighter layer you have put across the main Cyndevia is fairly noticeable. I can actually see the bevelling of it quite clearly.

Don't pay too much attention to what I say anyway, my personal style preference is more along the lines of the sig I'm using atm that TheLlama done for me a couple of months after I resurfaced in 09 lol

It's simple but that's not necessarily a bad thing. I think that if the bottom half had anything else that it would take away from the reflection. I'm not a fan of the lighting in V2 either, the change between bright and dark is too abrupt and it looks like only the letters are bright and makes the black outline of the letters look bad. But just experiment with different things and if you find that you can't make anything that you like, then try something different like vectors or pen-tooling or something.

Yeah I am starting to drift towards from abstract banners to vector/simple signatures now for some reason, it's just something different I suppose.

Alright thanks for the comments so far I thought I might good the good bits all into version 3. Well I hope it's all the good bits into version 3 xD

I like, but to me it lacks as a text piece because of so much empty space. Though it makes you focus on the text, but that's becauase it's the only thing really there. Try some vector brushes and increase the text size

Oh, one thing I noticed that I really like is that the bursts or whatever they are are coming from the dot on the 'i' that just struck me as a cool sort of effect.

Cyndevia I really liked your toon link signature better then your other ones. That's what i think but it's up to you on what your are wanting to choose.

haha only noticed the I because of wat yogi said it.

nice and simple which is how I like sigs.
tons of empty space, the normal blue looks like its meant to the the ground and the burst is like the sky.
even before i noticed the i and the burst I thought the burst looks kewl.
Like the text is coming from somewhere. As if it traveled from the side and made its way to he middle of the sig.
The stroke on the text could of been abit smaller, or it might look better how you got it now.
only thing that caught my eye is to the left of the C theres a light blue line, the same colour of the glow on the text.

nothing wrong with some empty space, its like negative and positive space.
some people like alot of negative space on things, some dont.
I could explain a example but then ill be getting off topic

Thanks for the comments guys.

I've changed the stroke around the text by 1 pixel and it looked horrible, but it was a nice suggestion though. Yeah that little you see there was meant to be the edge of the wall or something, so you can see the reflection and helps with the gradient in the background.

It's good that everyone finally likes a signature tag of mine Smile With all my previous ones, there was something minor that everyone just didn't like.

What can you say? We're picky people. Smile

Just remember, most likely someone will always find a flaw in your artwork
