I have created a couple variants of my sig and would like to get some artists inputs on which one looks the best.

1: The one I have now.

2:

or 3:

Thanks in advance for any responses or critiques.

D'oh.. thanks for pointing that out. I forgot to save my psp file after I fixed that the last time. If that wasn't there, you would go for #2 then?

Okay images 2 and 3 should be fixed now. You may have to clear your cache.

EDIT: how do I make this a poll so I can get more input without others actually having to post something(I think I would get more results this way)? I do value artist input though.

Thank you, I didn't figure it was possible. I guess mods get involved for those that started a thread and forgot to choose the poll option, like me. I appreciate the compliments of my modified versions, Budd, thank you.

I like the first one, but make the text a bit bigger and move it to the middle :artist:

Thank you all for your input. I get the feeling that most like entry #2. :wink:

I just want to see where DM is going with her suggestion as well.

I like #2 more but I don't like the 'finheaven.com' text in versions 2 and 3. If you took that out, I would like #2 the most.

Thank you 2k5. I will note that. What don't you like about the 'finheaven.com' text? The location, highlight color, the font, or do you just not like it being there at all?

I'm not trying to be confrontational, I just really want constructive critisism. I want to improve. :cooldude:

It just doesn't fit right. I don't think it fits with the rest of the sig at all, and I don't really see another place that you could put it. It's a pretty plain font and it seems like you just stuck it in there sorta randomly. I can't really help you much beyond that :(

I see where you are going. You are right. I did stick it in there randomly. I just saw it in another sig and thought it would look okay in mine. Basically I ran out of ideas and tossed it in there because I saw something similar in another sig that I liked.

almost... Did you use inner glow? If so change it to outer glow or if you can, thicken the text... You might have to make a second layer (i.e. do a black outline on it > rasterize it > give it outer/inner glow [whichever you have now])...

If you do shrink the size a little to somewhere inbetween the original and that one...:dm:

In other words make the text stand out a little more :wink:

Thanks DM, I will give that a go tomorrow. I was awaiting your response. :cooldude: I am off to bed now, thank you much! :D

np :D

Also, for experimentations sake, try "embossing" the dolphin logo. Test out some blending option effects to get it to blend into the rocky/sandy background then in "bevel/emboss" fiddle around a bit with the shading etc so it looks like it has been etched into the background...

See how it turns out :wink:

Okay I tried what you suggested. Unfortunately, PSP X doesn't have any adjustments for emboss. I did fiddle with the blending and luminance at 75% opacity seemed to give the best result.

Added a little bit of an accent to the border in this one.

Any other suggestions?
