Looks good.

There is a lot going on in the background though. Maybe if you could only the Reds logo instead of the logo on the shirt, it would look a little "cleaner". I like Dunn's pic on the right hand side, that was a pretty good choice of pic. Also the text needs some work, but text is usually the hardest to make.

Solid sig. The only way to get better at making sigs is to keep making them. :-)

There was a thread with sig tutorials if you wanted to take a look...let me see if I can find it...

it looks good, I take it your still beginning at the whole sig making thing. You are probably going to want to start trying to play around with different gradients and levels for colors and things. Try using some stock photos as the background it makes things work really nicely. I am still a newbie at this stuff too there are people who are years beyond me, but it will come in time. Good stuff

feel free to contact me on aim: mshapp88 id be willing to talk with you and help you wout with stuff if you like

I have bad luck when it comes to signatures that the person either gets traded or hurt...in this case I hope he gets traded.

Ok what would you suggest I do with it?? Text seems to be the one thing that never makes anybody happy....Especially the one working with it...I was just trying to keep this one simple but it definately could use a little upgrade.

the way you have layed the sig out, text is going to be real hard. Thats ok, you are still new at this. Text is really based on what the rest of the sig looks like. What you need is a good space for text, and a background that is more or less one color where the text will be. That doesnt mean the b/g should be one color entirely, just where you will position your text. Multi-colored backgrounds will make part of your text look hidden. My sig below isnt a great sig, but the text stands out because of space and similar coloring
