what do you guys think of this one... i was really just doing a sig to mess with some new text/font. i tried to make it look like the text was raising out of the bg. also, for some reason, my outer black border never seems to show up on the cafe. howard is over the inner white border, but supposed to be inside the outer black border.

About the b&w border I always make a 2 border layers for those. 1 2px white, then a 1px black on top of that. The new font is nice, a little too blended though. Kinda plain but a nice sig.

the way i usually do it, and it shows up at other places, is the 2 px black first, then a 1 px white. i dont know why it doesnt show up here :-?

as for the plain, i think thats one of my huge flaws. im not open to cluttered, filled bg's. i dont know why, i just dont like making them (and i guess i dont really know how to make a really good one, since i dont do it much), but i definitely agree that this sig needs something else to it.

yeah it bothers me too, mostly because the outer black border doesnt show up here at the cafe for me...it was supposed to be over the inner white, but under the outer black.

The font is sweet lookin, I'd make it a tad less transparent though.

i played with it for so long and couldnt decide how i liked it...this was actually a very very rough draft, considering no one requested it.

abrage, this is actually howard without being cut. the whole thing is just one picture (with a very very light transparent howard in the right corner). this is a way of getting around cutting players, but keep working on the cutting.
