    [​IMG] they are definitely good for your first sigs,

    my first sigs were kinda shitty and I haven't improved much

    you could probally use better backgrounds, your second one looks blurred

    screens indeed count as a lighting effect. Those are pretty good signatures though, but the background looks like it solely relies on the C4Ds. Add a little variety to it. Though I like the Code Geass one.

    Just choose better fonts next time
    the first one, the guy is kinda too bright
    the second one, the green background doesn't really fit
    the third one I think is the best.

    As your first sigs, they are pretty nice.
    Just choose a font that "fits" the style.

    OK guys. Read the forum rules. Maximum file size for both your sig and avatar cannot be bigger than 80KB in total.

    Find a way to cut down the file size to fit the forum rules. All 3 of the images TodayiSawMyHeroFall posted are over 100KB each. That's too large.

    At this point I won't remove anything because you are working out the details, but you wanted some advice, so there's an important piece of advice for you. Maybe try converting them to jpg's to get them to be smaller.

    So Splych, that means yours too. [​IMG]

    Sumoka, yours are over the 80KB limit for both also, by around 10KB.

    I like it, The last one is my favorite. Just think the backgrounds need to be a little more complex, but yeah great job. [​IMG]
