    Okay, my first sig that actually looks decent (unlike my first one). The one I'm using right now was only gotten from a website, so here:

    Now, I'm asking, is it okay? Border maybe? Before I use it.

    EDIT: Forgot to mention. I only did this in 30 minutes, so there is not that much effort into it.

    EDIT: I just made a Scribblenauts one:

    Nice sig [​IMG] But it may be better if you stroke your font. Speaking of fonts, what font is that? I'll give you my Shin Go fonts if you tell me what those are [​IMG]

    They are pretty hard to find. Mostly used for Japanese characters. Some site want you to pay for the font [​IMG]. PM me if you want it [​IMG]

    It looks pretty cool! It's kind of like Calibri but sleeker.

    I now used it as my signature and I must say it looks quite good. See?

    VVVVVVVVVVVVV​

    It looks pretty good.

    EDIT: Aw, just realized I double posted.

    EDIT: I made a scribblenauts one too:

    The effect is getting old... Maybe change the background type? Try using stock images. They may provide better backgrounds.

    You waited last time and it turned out horrible. Maybe you shouldn't expect too much.

    Don't worry. Everyone improves over time... And where do you get your renders? Been wanting to get a new render some time...

    They all look pretty much the same to me except for different renders or colors. Needs more variety, try to use the other functions in Gimp and get to know how everything works. [​IMG]

    That looks really nice but the font is killing it. Font doesn't need to be fancy it could be something simple and still look good. The font on that one looks pixelated. Otherwise good job.

    As I said try 'stroking' your font.
    •Right click the font's layer
    •Tick the Stroke checkbox
    At least that's what you have to do in PS

    Your getting better. You always forget to add a border [​IMG]

    And the font does look a little buggy to me... Other than that, it is good. I actually like this one and to me, it is better than any of your other siggys [​IMG]
