number one is far superior artistically IMO.

Number two looks like the sig and the avatar aren't even related.

Since the challenge was for a set (both avy and sig) I have to vote for 1. The sig for one is better than the sig for 2, but the avy for 2 is better than the avy for one. Since I am split I have to vote for the one that best excutes a theme. I like both entries... the detail on the sig for 2 is very well done and the animation on both is great.

Pretty good avatar for #2, but I think #1 is better overall.

Well, since the voting is done I'd like to come to my defense a little bit. First of all, thanks to everyone who voted for me.

Secondly, Yes we were asked to make a avvy/siggy "set" but no where did it say they have to match. I mean, there are very few people on this board that have a matching avvy and siggy so I went with two different designs.

DM's siggy was superior to mine. When I saw her stuff I thought I was dead man walkiing.

My avvy won it for me, plain and simple, although, I do think I had a great idea for my siggy, it just did'nt turn out exactly how I was hoping.

DM is the benchmark for this stuff, being able to win a vote against her is very flattering. The fact I even made it to the Finals was great. If her and I had to do this again I think the voting would be different.

All that being said, I've won December, January and March...not too bad in my opinion. I'm out for April though because my Photoshop ****ed up bigtime today and my disc won't be back in my hands until tonight so I can't do a reinstall until then...:boohoo:

I liked yours a lot unified. The avatar was amazing of course, but the sig looked like you just made a background from a tutorial, and added some text and a logo. Its not bad, but I know you can do better. I'm guessing that you had some time contraints again, which sucks. I might have voted for yours if it had a border. Borders are becoming a pet peeve of mine.

I was terribly constrained with time. I actually spent a TON of time on the siggy and the avvy was done very quickly...bizarre when you think about it...

The background on the siggy was actually just a picture of Cinderella, overlayed on a light blue BG with a few scanlines thrown in, no tutorial needed for something so basic...LOL!

The thing that killed me on my siggy (and the reason it took forever) was the layout. I actually had a lot more on it at one point but it looked too jumbled together.

I'ts weird how these things turn out sometimes...

I know exactly what you mean. Sometimes you are just messing around and you get something that looks great in 15 minutes, and other times you spend a couple hours on something and it just won't turn out right.

How's that free trial download comin? You think you're gonna get anything in?

IMO, and IMO only, if they don't match, then it's not a "set".
