I abstained from voting since I knew all the sig makers. Had I voted, my top 3 (excluding my own) would have been as follows:

1) A - I really like the way Pedroia looks. Excellent choice of pic. Solid background. Only criticisms are text, especially the awards and that little thing above faded Pedroia's left shoulder. Is that an airplane? Great work Soty. ;-D

2) G - Great work GiantsFan. Really like the overall look of the sig. Only criticisms are text and the light blue outline around various parts of Garza. I also liked the fact that you tried something new.

3) F - Surprise, surprise. Snakes made a Hamels sig! Solid work overall. I like the text and render. Only real criticism is that the background seems a little too washed out.

Comments about other sigs:

B - Very creative sig, though not really my taste. A bit too orange for my liking and there's no real focal point. Text also needs a little work.

I - I'm a huge fan of WickedSmaat's work, especially the sig he is now wearing. However, this one has a little too much going on and I don't really like the choice of render.

H - Also a fan of smoovethug's prior work. I don't think this is one of his best, however. Although I usually like symmetry, I'm not a fan of the butterfly look that this sig has.

C - Solid work abrage. You are definitely getting much better. Not a big fan of the highway(if that's what it is) background though.

E - I also usually like The_Show's work, but I don't think this is one of his best. Not a fan of the choice of background or color scheme.

Great job guys! Again, I think the sigs were a lot closer than the vote indicated.

I figured that a majority of people would think my sig is really busy. in part, there is a lot of detail but I like it, i think all the detail gives it an interesting perspective to see what's all involved even. I'm basically trying to do new things to expand my stylings and hoping to find my own voice someday. I didn't expect everyone to love it, but I'm still going to be progressing from here. I feel like every sig that was entered could be represented as a stage that I've been through.

Congrats to h0rt ;D
