Personally, I'd add a border. I like what you did, especially with the enlarged version of the awe-inspiring crowbar in the background. But please go easy on using the same render over and over again. 1 detailed and one repeated, should be plenty. You have a good background going. You should show it. Goes perfect with the color palette you have going.

The freed up space could be used to emphasize your name, because I could barely make it out of the background.

Again, these are just personal hints.

I usually have a hard time finding the point where I should stop messing about with a sig, because it's complete.
I'd say that you're right about on that spot.

I like the colors, I like the brushes and the translucent effect it has on the background. Maybe make the fade of focal point of the sig (your face, I assume?) a little less?

Other than that, I notice a standard windows font, but it fits right in. Otherwise, dafont has plenty free fonts to use.

My best guess is the differene between uploading and hosting an image here, or hosting and using an image elsewhere.

When uploading an image here, one is required to place it on the server. Once uploaded, the image seems to have been converted into a .GIF image. .GIF's are lossless, but still compressed and limited to a spectrum of 256 colors. Then there's the factor of how the image is converted to .GIF, which might lead to quality loss, depending on how the original image is stored.

On the other hand, I've created and uploaded a new sig without any quality loss.

So all my previous signatures were on my imageshack.

Which after a couple of years of being inactive... Was deleted.

They don't recognize any of my e-mails.


Anything I could do about that?

Here are some sigs I have done. Just wanted some general critique if possible as they are my first six I have ever made.

I don't know if I need to scale the characters more correctly or anything. Like if some look a bit to thin etc. I'd be grateful for any criticism.

When you make comic book sigs, they turn out better if you go with the same artist, because artists or their artwork is their signature. Using two different signatures comes off uneven. If you have to go with different artists try to make sure that the styles are as close as possible. You need to have a real good eye when matching artists though. For example David Finch compliments Jim Lee's art style.

This is a very good site to nab some artwork for comic sigs
