Nope. Definately deserving of top 3 or 4 IMO.

I think sig H is the best out there. I think it was easily the hardest to make, and i kind of like the style. None of the other sigs have many effects at all, while H has a ton

id hate to do this because i dont rip ANYONE'S sigs because i know how hard it is and mine certainly ARE NOT the best or anywhere near the best. but im going to take my stance and let everyone know. i dont know who made H and i dont want them to take it personally, because it is better than some of the other sigs in the contest. normally i would say h is a fine sig but in a contest every little thing needs to be picked apart. anyhow, here i go:

one, the text is way below acceptable. the small text is completely unreadable and the text on gardenhire is as plain as they come. secondly, the whole right side of the sig is bad if you ask me. the red stripe going down the sig completely ruins it. (not the border, the effect to the immediate right of gardenhire). and the light flashes in the corner at the bottom dont seem right to me either. there needs to be more focus on gardenhire and less on the umpire as well. it has the look of a two person sig rather than focusing on gardenhire.

im really sorry to seem so critical because i dont mean to be. i just think that B,C,E have way less flaws and have a much better look and are better done. just my opinion. rip me if you want. :-[

Well that's why we have the contest. Not everyone is going to agree about every sig so we try to get as many people as we can to vote. I don't see why it's such a big deal that this sig won. I know you don't like it, but pretty much everyone else does so what can I say...

No worries dude, because in the end, this contest is all about opinions !+) First sig I've done since Feb and the wall I just posted was the first larger piece I've done since then. No offense was taken ;-D

the sham thing was a joke. you dont have to say anything teddy. its not your fault.

the funny thing is, wicked is my favorite sig maker on this site. i think hes the absolute best at text and it was pretty shocking to actually see that H was his. you definitely should not take offense. this was the only sig of yours i never liked. i still dream about your kazmir sig :-D

Just because you don't like it doesn't meen other people don't, obviously if one of your sigs are in here and you did the things that you don't like on H other people maybe like that stuff like the small text and the other things.?.?

the small text on sig H is not meant to be read. At all. All the small text is there for is texture. Its not really text at all.
