Borders, eh? I personally don't recommend them but it's completely up to you...(Not that I'm a good sig maker myself).
1st: Character's a little to dark. Maybe you can lighten her up?
2nd: Love this one. No need to change it...
3rd: Maybe some text would be good, and your sig won't be stolen.
Good works you've done. With some improvements, you can become the sig you were once before.
I've entered a contest. Please support me (if you want):https://contest.welovefine.com/vote....0#.VALG98VdUg8
@Light Buster Those were VERY helpful comments! And yeah for the last sig I'm gonna use it as a set soon, But I really couldn't think of any text xD
@RyuTama I made a present for my wifey <3 Lol I hope you like it.
Okay now before I get obsessed with PS I think im going to go to bed... almost 3am. <3
Like this (Hope you don't mind that I edited your signature to show what I mean) :
All I did was take a black and white gradient and place it over the signature with the black over the face of the render. The I went down the list and I like the color burn one. I change the opacity to 50%. Now the render doesn't look so washed out.
Over all I think this is really good for a new/old beginner like you lol. Keep up the good work.

Thank you so much @Yukari Advice helped a whole bunch! I see what you mean about the lighting on the third one. I was thinking of doing that but wasn't sure if it would look good or not.
I was messing around with C4D's before bed but I couldn't get the hang of using them. I'll keep working on it. Again thank you so much! <3
The thing about C4D's is that you need to find one that fits the signature. And there are 3 types or C4D's.
Effect C4D's: Ones that typical take up space
Lighting C4D's: They typical add lighting and other things. They are usually put on effect layers such a color burn or whatever you want.
WireFrame C4D's: With these to work, you need to put it on Multiply to get right of the white, but the wire frame will still be there.
You'll just have to play around with a BUNCH of C4D's to "get the hang of it"
So been playing around with c4d's all day... Finally came up with this.
I'm actually going to use it as a set. Unfortunately I don't have time to make more so I'll have to wait until after work. I need to work on text a little more o.o

The font (as you said) needs work. The font itself looks fine, the color needs work though. Sometimes I use a color wheel to see what complementary colors go well together or whatever.
Another thing, Maybe use a phrase or something in the negative space up in the top right. It's a little too blank over there.

Okay! So I used a new style since i'm not that great with C4D's.
Tutorial used: http://www.animerender.com/index.php...-vectorsigtut/
Tried my best not to make the render looked washed out. I'll try this style again with a better render, this was just for practice.
I like it!! Such improvement! Again I love the border. It's great. I love what you did with the text. and I love how you copied the character and filled her in and placed her in the background around the signature. You're flow could use a bit of work. maybe look up some flow tutorials. It helped me a lot when I did so.

That's an improvement ^^. Colors much more vibrant and appealing. Like Yukari said, your flow needs to improve. When you put brushes/C4Ds, they should somehow attract the eye towards the focal. Keep up with the good work.

Double post graaa o_o
So I finished my set. I don't really like the stars but... eh I still love the outcome I'm LOVING this style!
You still need a little help with the flow of the signature. Although you have gotten better and I love this style too
Here I have shown the flow of the signature:

That is the thread Tip of the Week.
It talks about a lot of the aspects of signature making.
Very helpful tutorial :o Thanks so much Yukari! <3
Trying my hand at C4D's again. I think I did...decent o.o
I still can't get the text right. C4D's are still kinda tricky. Comment please. :3
Here's one tutorial for using C4Ds that I made, it's very old but still fairly basic on how to use them.
I have another one that I'll post here later for you.
here it is:
These won't make your signatures amazing overnight, but it's somewhere to start.
This actually has a lot of potential. Mind if you send me the PSD? I want to give it some tweaks.

Yeah, I'll send it after work. I'm not feeling good right now so I'm trying to rest up before work. And yeah, I get what you're saying. I'll take that into consideration onto my next sig. Thanks <3 :3
So I decided to play with smudging, and coloring. This is the outcome:
I couldn't find the right font for the text...so I just left it like this x.x
You're going back to that "whiteish" layer that sorta washes out the colors. As for color, see what happens when you add a vibrance layer and play around with the settings. As for a text, in my opinion I would go for a more script type of font.
Just finished my set lol. I like this style...Just need to find a way to make it look..not as simple. :o
Edit: I just noticed I forgot to darken the render... >.> Eh ill do it tomorrow. I like it how it is though.
Not that I disapprove by any means, but the only part of her that's visible is some of her face and her massive cleavage. Did you blend it this way on purpose or...? lol
Also, for really soft signatures like these, having a slew of vibrant colors isn't really the target. The appeal of these pastel tags are how 'soft' they look, which you generally get by having high brightness, and really faint touches of color with low contrast between elements. If you want to really bring out colors in anything though, you'll have to keep the overall brightness down by purposefully avoiding whites and neutral colors. The best tip I can give is to start with a really colorful stock, and decide on 3 to 4 primary colors that you want to theme the tag or whatever you're working on around, then start adding in those colors with really high saturation. It'll come out fairly bold this way, but I find it steers me away from a uniformly colored image. You can always adjust the hues and saturation after you get the big picture is finished anyways.
