My reyes sig

Postby bpizle » Mon Jun 23, 2008 6:32 pm

Kinda my first time doing a sports sig for the cafe, I normally do logos and whatnot. Just give me some advice, its in the sig. I tried to use a different border but it told me It was over the allowed bites.

i think ive given my thoughts about it in another thread, but i guess ill throw a few things out there now. i think the text is kinda sloppy. it doesnt look smooth and in my opinion takes away from the sig. normally, i like text to be as simple as possible, because it is rather hard to blend and look really nice. if you try to do too much with text without being perfect in its execution, it generally looks sloppy to me. the lighting is really good in the background, but it seems like the quality is really poor. id like to see the full version because you saved down to cafe limits actually.

Thats abuout as close to the original as i can get. In the original the lighting was a little sharper but thats the original border i was going to use.

still seems stretching causing a blurry/non sharp look. you have a lot of really good parts in this sig, but it still needs to be sharper. overall, pretty good. ;-D

remember, if you're not using it in a sig, you dont need to cut it down.

i would bring maine over the yellow personally, and the text is good. i like the effect and everything, but maybe a different font? :-?


better. i would bring a better lighting/effect to maine personally, but thats just my style. it really all depends on your personal preference, but technique wise, i like this one better.

I know, i cut it down because i was going to put it as my sig, i was just getting an opinion on which 1 looks better.
