    I was experimenting with signatures in the last few weeks, but I was never satisfied with the results. But now I've got my hands on the new Photoshop and the results keep getting better, I think. This is my newest try, please tell me what you think about it.

    I'm not sure, if I should add some person or just my name, so please give me some advice [​IMG]

    Your current signature is fine. And by that I mean "not obnoxious." Keep what you have now.

    Pretty picture, though.

    A splash of vivid color, as a focal point. I like the texture of it a lot, but it needs at least one small dissimilar element to shake it up.
    I'd go with a figure, but even just a literal splash would do. Keep it off center though. Just my opinion.

    By the way, if you haven't checked out Bert Monroy's photoshop tips yet, do so. He's the awesomest!

    I like such "plain" pictures ... in my oppinion it would be ruined if there would be something like a figure or a name would be in it.

    I only think that those hyroglyphes should take little bit more of the place.



    Also ich finds gut [​IMG] aber mit den hyroglyphen sieht des aus als h├Ątteste da nen bild von ihrgend nem buch genommen und da meinermeinung nach etwas schlecht da rein gemacht (wegen dem "rahmen")

    Thanks for indulging me.
    (I'm lusting after the new photoshop, is it the CS3 beta you're working with?)

    Hmmmm I prefered it in black and white, sorry [​IMG]

    Even though I like it as it was in the first place, in the colour version I think it's the rainbow palette that's not convincing me. Maybe a single colour would work better?

    Yeah i liked the original better as well BUT ! somehow it looks like the picture is crying with that "addon" mthrnite did, which would fit very well into that dark atmosphere of the pic ... if it yous would fit the colors it would be pretty good I think. (but who asks someone who had the worst grades in design class all the time [​IMG])

    Thanks to you for these suggestions [​IMG]

    @ mthrnite: Thanks a lot for the link, I love it [​IMG] and unfortunately I'm not working with the CS3 beta

    @Youkai: What do you mean with "there's a frame around the hyroglyphes"? It's a brush, and I can't see any frame there [​IMG]
