    Default Signature of the Week #38 Voting

    Before we get down to the voting, I just wanted to throw a couple of things out there. First of all, I would like to make 2 simple requests for those of you who vote in this thing:


    1) Please make your vote simple to understand. For example; I vote for entry A because..... Or make it somewhat obvious which entry you are voting for. Its getting too difficult to pick out who you vote for is you mention every entry and their dogs in your votes. So please add a level of simplicity so I can easily keep score.


    2) In contrast to the above, I would also like to see YOUR thoughts on these entries just as much as the people who entered. DO NOT CLAIM ANY ENTRY TO BE 'PERFECT' or 'FLAWLESS.' That is totally counter intuitive to giving you, the user, to voice your opinions via your votes. And its also very degrading to the other entries. You have all the space in the world to describe why you made your choice; seriously USE YOUR ADJECTIVES.




    With that all said, be sure to get more people to contribute to these. The more active this stuff is, the more interesting contests I will be able to run. And that means better prizes for contestants... THE POWER IS YOURS.


    Kay, done. Have fun.





















    Signature of the Week #38 Voting

    Theme: Abstract


    Rules and Guidelines for Voting:



    1) You must state your reasons for voting on a particular entry (I.E. what you liked about the entry). You are NOT allowed to campaign for any specific entry, nor should you post negative comments on any other entry that you are not voting for. You should vote based upon solely what YOU like, NOT what other people are voting for.

    2) NOT FOLLOWING RULE 1 WILL RESULT IN YOUR VOTE BEING DELETED.

    3) This contest is designed so entries are to remain anonymous. Any reference to missing dealines, who entered or did not enter will result in your entry being disqualified, and your post removed. You also risk being removed from further competitions of this nature.

    Voting Ends Saturday, May 7th, 2011.

    Entry B:




    Entry C:

    I vote for Entry D because of it's use of softer colors, and simplicity. My only concern(s) with it is that for it to be spacy, it seems to be too noisy and sharp.

    Entry A and C would've been next, but A is too simple and C is the opposite, too chaotic. Still both have their good spots, Entry A with it's great smudging work and colors, and Entry C with it's great use of C4D's and depth.

    Entry B looks good, but the quality looks kind of bad. I see what they tried with the depth, but it looks a little over blurred in some spots and under sharpened in others. The colors look good though and it fits the theme. I do like the word "abstract" hidden in the mix though, that looks cool but very hard to notice.

    Entry E I'm a little confused about. It looks good and bad at the same time. The typography could use a little touch up, and the background looks low quality, but that looks like it was the intended result. Another bigger problem is that the lighting looks like it's just been slapped on there, and it's too bright.

    Entry F would have been great if not for the text being so large. I found myself focusing too much on the text rather than the background when it should've been the other way around. Everything else seems to be in order though.
    ---
    tl;dr I vote for Entry D.

    Entries C, D, and F were the ones that caught my eye right away.

    C: Very nice color palette here, minus the glaringly white border. It reminds me of an underwater cave or something. I can see how this fits the theme, and it has nice flow, but yu could have done a lot more in terms of depth and lighting. Other than that, kudos on a well-crafted sig.

    D: Very simple, but that's what I like about it. I'm very fond of the text and the lines. This really could have used something extra, though, just to enhance the amount of visual interest.

    F: The focal is in desperate need of sharpening, and yet the text is oversharpened. But it's very pretty. Again, nice color choices and decent flow.

    I'm giving D my vote. C anf F had the highest highs but also the lowest lows, so the consistent entry wins.

    + Looks like it's from scratch
    + Seems to be a digi paint of sorts

    The colours could be blended more, but I like tags that are done from scratch with no help :]

    Going to vote for C. It looks like it couldve been several c4ds layers on top of each other, and the text placement is a little awkward, but I like the very metallic look it gives.

    D is nice too, but I see it and think "space", not abstract. All I really see are stars and what could be planets, so I dont feel it really fits the theme of 'abstract'.

    So yes, C gets my vote

    I'll be real honest: I wish I've seen better. I thought I would find something that would blow my mind, but I only see those that I find just attractive and consider my cup of tea. But it doesn't blow me away.

    I vote for Entry C because it has more of an abstract like look to it. I'm not real crazy with the oversharpening in the center, its too much of a distraction. Hmm... it is pretty, but I think more could be done I can't put my finger on it.
    Unfortunate thing I'd vote for D, however I'm not sure if "space" is considered to be abstract or whatever. I'm no abstract pro, if someone says my stuff has it I didn't try to make it look like it. I put things together. lol But Entry C has it.

    I vote for entry F. It was hard but F was the nicest once that I couldn't make out any definite shapes or theme to it thus being the most abstract IMO. I feel like a magical being with an awesome glowing magical orb when I look at it!

    A: It's nice but the constant use of smudge brushes did not appeal to me that greatly. But it's a runner up in the "abstract feel"

    B: The X's were a little too blurred and distracted me from the entire flow of the image. Without them there or perhaps a bit sharpened and darker they would've looked nice.

    C: A few abstract C4D's put together for an abstract contest theme seemed like the easy way out to me. So it didn't gmv. But it looked nice. Just seemed like an easy way out and not creative.

    D: This one was almost the one I voted for. But with abstract in mind it gave off a space theme. Which isn't abstract because it doesn't make me wonder. I already know I'm in space.

    E: Same problem. It's not really abstract in my book as I can tell I'm looking at a rose and a tree? It's a very grainy image too. It looks like it's because of the tree but first glance it just looks low quality. The bottom typography is nice but it clashes with the top.
