whatever effect you have on the ivy is pretty distracting to me. i would have just left the ivy as is.

the cut on soriano could be better around the head.

the border is too much for my liking.

the teal text doesnt seem to go with the sig. i would have just stuck to the blue.


i know it sounds like im ripping apart the whole sig, but i hope you take my criticisms well and use them to your advantage. ;-D

Thanks man. The Ivy plain sorta melded into soriano, and made him ahrd to identify, so I funked it up. The lettering I'm always crappy at.

I didnt get a chance to see your last one, but I can tell you that the ivy is not there, the text is not there, your original plan was nice, the back catch and then the face to the right, but idk.. Keep working. O:-) ;-D

I agree with Snakes. Not trying to sound like a jerk either, just trying to help. I dont like the border, just a plain simple skinny black one would do just fine. The text and ivy are both funky and kind of take away from the sig. Like Snakes said its sort of distracting. I am not a big fan of using fancy text. Take a simple one and make it your own. Finally your cutting...I am sure you already know you have to work on that. I am not perfect at cutting either, but with each one I do I get better and better. As they say practice makes perfect (or at least close to it ;-) ) Finally on a positive note...this sig is better than your other sig, so there are definitely improvements. Just keep working at it, it will come with time and practice. ;-D
