i like the background in the timmy sig, but i'm not a fan of the text or how the render looks, i think it could use some lighting effects or something.

i do however, really like the look of the previous 3. especially the kinsler sig, its awesome.

For the Kershaw and Roberts sig, I would probably try to make the text stand out a little more. But besides that, sig well done ;-D

The Lincecum sig definitely looks better with a glow. Maybe just play around with the color of the glow ;-)

Less glow. Altered lighting...

for how little it changed, something about it makes me like it significantly more, though i'm still not a huge fan of the text (definitely the thing i struggle with most in making sigs)

Eh. Wasn't really feeling the Lincecum sig. Not even sure if I'm going to link it to my page. But I really like the way this one came out. Thoughts?

i quite like the feel of the sig, and the text looks really good. it might just be me, and its not really a rip on the sig because its quite good, but the way the render is placed and the effects you have on it kinda makes oswalt's body look really big compared to the size of his head, its kinda funny actually.

I agree with GiantsFan. The effects and the sig are very well done. The color gives it a Texas heat type of feeling. The only thing is the awkward positioning/angle of the render.

IMO the ideal pose would of been something like this:

Perhaps your right guys. I actually didn't intend on doing an Oswalt sig until I found this sick picture, which inspired me

Image

Maybe I should have made the render smaller. I was playing around with sizes in the beginning and was between my current size and this one.

Image

In the end, I liked the slightly bigger render better.
