    Very good, one on the best I've seen yet.
    But maybe a bit too dark.
    You can hardly see Dante.

    Thanks you Satangel [​IMG]
    It is a bit hard to see him in the original picture too, so resized and worked on so he blends in, makes it a bit harder to see that it's him.
    But I took your advice and slightly improved the lights on him.

    Contrast is too crazy. Blend colors a little bit? The yellow especially. Make it more orangeish, less blinding. A couple filter layers, maybe work around with the yellow channels a little bit.

    Add a curves and brightness/contrast layer to make it a bit brighter. The yellow doesn't really fit in with the rest of the sig.

    Thanks for the feedbacks guys, really appreciate it.
    I remade the whole right section along with some other minor stuff for better blending and brightened it a bit more. What do you guys think now?

    Flow and color is much better now.

    Still very dark though.

    If you see it very dark when using your default monitor settings. Then it's most likely due to having an older model.
    When I check on the same picture downstairs on my older PC, then the sig is very dark as well (about 50% darker). But when I see it on my regular one (and on the ds browser), it's just slightly dark on specific shadow spots.

    Thanks Satangel [​IMG]

    I made a new one, this took a little while but I'm satisfied with the results.

    Everything is great, colors are really nice...the ONLY thing that bugs me....your name, font is too simple, and colors are right, but doesn't feel like they are!!
    Try a bit messing with it....otherwise, great!!

    Danke for the feedback [​IMG]
    Any suggestion on a more fitable font? I've barely downloaded any extra ones (I just have 3 non default ones [​IMG])

    Very nice font, but I don't think it will fit in too well with my sig. I need something more robotic kind of style for it [​IMG]

    Welcome!!
    Actually, the more I look at it, the more I like it....It's so colorful, yet balanced, and it looks kinda disturbing...
    Great work..

    Now, for that font....I don't have any custom fonts either, I always use default....hmmm....
    It should be something destructive-a-like, but simple enough to be clearly readable in small font..
    I'll try to look up on it....But for now, I don't have any particular font to suggest!! [​IMG]

    EDIT: Actually, this kind of font I used in my sig would fit rather nicely....It's simple, but interesting enough, and it has that robotic feel of it.....Now if I could remember what was it called....I think it was something like Terminator2....Try googling fonts with that name..

    Try Transformers font from Sci-Fi, it looks good, it could fit/blend nice with the picture..

    You're probably getting more drawn to it the more you look, because I added a slight touch of radiation on it Toni [​IMG]
    Many thanks Toni and Satangel. I'll look through the pages now and see if I find something.

    It's indeed one of the best sigs I ever seen, just like you're other sig.
    Perhaps this one is even better.
    I've seen alot of sigs and sigmakers, but you must be one of the best.

    Thanks again Satangel, very glad you like my work that much [​IMG]

    All right, I tried a few fonts and these are the ones I think were the best (for this signature)

    First up is the Transformers font
    [​IMG]
    Alot better than my original font, but it still didn't give me the vibe I was looking for though.

    2nd is 3rd the Hard way
    [​IMG]
    This is really a kickass font, which I'll be using alot on my future work.

    Last one is Metal Gear
    [​IMG]
    Now this is my personal favorite for this sig, feels like it fits in precisely with the style.


    Font did alot to it, I'm glad you brought it up Toni.
