I thought yours was pretty good. I woulda changed the text though. And you should experiment with the lighting on Ohno, go to image>>adjustments>>curves and mess with that. It also looked a little pixelated or something, don't know how to describe it. It looks like it needed to be compressed a lot and lost quality.

Good feedback... fonts are on of the hardest parts of design.

Sorry Buddwalk. I was pretty nervous about what I'd see from you. After all...you did just come from the Finals in the Feb comp. I really had to focus on this one 'cause I've seen your stuff and it's great. Good luck in the next competition!

By the way, numbers 6 & 7 are hilarious!

This has to be the most lop-sided voting I have seen in a while. Either the matchups were unfortunate or the task was difficult. Maybe a combination or both.

But i guess thats a good thing that people got owned. Lets say 2 good ones went against each other and two crappy ones, the good ones both deserve 2nd round, but one will get it, and instead a crappy one will advance. So this ownage solves that problem.

I think he's saying that hypothetically. Like if the one played the two in the NCAA tournament and then faced the winner of a match of 15 vs 16.

i already know whats wrong with mine. its too plain and corney. I need better effects, and an actual background. I tried going for that plain solid color look, and added the outter glow cuz i thought it looked alittle better.

I was thinking of an ice background, but...I suck at backgrounds. I need to improve on that.

Backgrounds are, in my opinion, the most difficult thing to master when you are doing siggy's and avvy's. I have troubles with them everytime. 99% of the time I'm not happy with any background I do.

I would'nt say that at all. The voting might not have gone your way but when I saw yours I said, "this is gonna be close". Voting can be strange sometimes...

I thought yours was great. The only issue you had was text. That being said, the text in mine was brutal.

For a first time entry you did excellent in my opinion. Don't be discouraged at all. I know I don't want to face you again. Next time out you're gonna do some damage for sure.

Dale Begg-Smith or something like that, lol I was going to do him but thought it would be too obvious which one was mine.

If you are doing these in photoshop go to file>>save for web. It lets you edit the quality with a slider from 0-100. You can usually go down to atleast 80% without any visible quality loss and it shaves off quite a bit of file size.
