I have been working pretty hard trying to get better and this sig is a good example of that IMO. Its does have much going on, but enough to get the point across. As far as the text, I just wanted something small that wouldnt over power the sig. Thats my reasoning behind that. Thanks for input. ;D

good work. i like everything other than the text too. i understand the reasoning behind making it simple and not overpowering, but i think you gotta do alittle more than that.

Everything looks good, I understand the point of not overdoing it on the text too but I'd at least bold it, drop shadow, or layer it under to blend in with the background more or something.

Thanks a lot guys. I am really trying to do better with these things and I need your (experts) help to do that. Sounds to be like I got to work on my text next. I dont really know how to do a drop shadow and stuff like that, but I am sure if I look around I can figure it out. Thanks again for the help guys. ;D

drop shadow is the easiest thing to do and is really helpful not just on text but on player cutouts and other things. just right click the layer in your layers tab and click blending options, then its right there. very helpful ;D

Drop shadow =
1. right click on the layer you want to shadow (in this case its the text layer).
2. Select blending options.
3. Drop shadow (You can play around with the options here to get the desired effect)

Also, try some of the other options in blending options.

I just tried all the right click and blend stuff and it wasnt there. Its probably Photoshop you guys are talking about bc I am using Gimp and it says nothing like that. Thanks for trying to help though. ;D
