Good luck to you both.

This is tough... I might need an extension cause i have to get a free trial of something and get used to it.....

DigiMark007
Cool theme. thumb up

Tourneys should be challenging.

Alliance
I have an exam Thursday...can we add a day or two to the deadline?

This will also give Gannon time to get a decent graphics program.

Good Luck Gannon.

A free trial of...a photo manipulation software? If so, you really should have already had one if you entered into a signature tournament.

Either way, since Alliance has an exam I am extending the deadline to 5 days from thread start.

Lana

Thanks. I believe Gannon had software, but it was a trial verson and expired.

Alliance
Gannon, you get software yet?

Make it look nice.

Alliance
How.

Gannon
http://i25.photobucket.com/albums/c89/something941/skullsig5.png

+ Fits under all criteria.
+ I love the glow coming from the skulls nostrils.
- Not really what I was looking for when I wanted stock sigs, but it still fits. It is more traditional in what KMC Sig Makers do...render over self made background.
- The color is odd and the stock was almost hidden behind the mess of a C4D.

+ Actual stock signature.
+ Unobtrusive text which blends nicely and is still readable.
- The border is kind of blah.
- The stretched blur effect is still a bit pixelated in one area, maybe should have a bit more blur added on the ones to the right of the skull.

I'm a bit surprised you both used bones in the duel, it kind of made it easier to judge by comparing how both of you used the same premise to come up with completely different results. In the end though, I have to go with the one that I truly deserves the win, the signature is beautiful. Alliance goes on to Round 2!

Alliance
Speedy judging.

Great duel Gannon. I also laughed when I saw you did a skull too.smile

BakaXero

Alliance

Great idea. I didn't even think of that.

Thanks big grin

calvs
I don;t think so. The closest thing we did last time was do a third place 3 way.

Lana
No, there was a wild card match last time of the first round losers. That's how we ended up with the three-way match for third place.
