-shrugs- Didn't know what else to say ^^;;

Well, here is a collection of my sigs I've made over the past year, using Photoshop and GIMP.

Well I made them for me and for other people [their requests] ...
By the way, is there a sig team in here?

Well, enjoy? ^^;

Whoa, I like a lot of those!
The first three you posted look exactly the same, but with different pictures of characters- which is alright, but I like the variety you have going on with the rest of them.
Nice use of your colors-everything is sharp and some of them have great contrast.
Nice text usage as well.

Overall, your stuff is awesome and well done- nice job.

Gee, thanks ^^; I thought I'd be nothing compared to the pros here >_>

Why compare yourself to "pros".
You have very good/ original siggies that look great.
In fact, some of them do look very professional.
So never lower yourself out of reach from others who are also good and may have flawless graphics.!

Okaaayyy.. You posted A LOT all at once, so there's no way I'm going to comment and critique each and every single one. ><; I'm not that crazy yet.

*ahem* Anyway, for a lot of the sigs, it almost feels like you created the background separately then slapped on the images. ><; As a result, the sig as a whole feels incomplete and wrong. This is the case for a lot of the sigs in the first post. Also, you seem to reuse the same effects/brushes for several sigs. I don't really find that appealing.

For your later sigs in the later posts, that feeling has lessened a lot. Your second Ichigo sig and your last sig are ones I feel are the best of what you've posted. Good colors, matching, and what else, the background isn't so chaotic. Therefore, it doesn't distract me from the render which should be the focal point.

Now that I take a closer look at your sigs, I realize you're using the same brushes or brush sets for almost every single sig. -_-;; You need a little more variety..and to learn what brushes are more suitable for what renders. It's still good to experiment of course so don't stop doing that.

Haha, I know ^_^;
The sigs in the first post, well most of them were made in GIMP when I didn'tknow how to work in layers properly :( so I made the background first then put on the render.

And about the brush sets .. well I don't have that many good brushes xP

Nice... you have some good works here. For the first ones, I agree with Clowangel. There should be more blending and color matching, which you started later on, and you have some great sigs.

I especially like sigs 1, 3, 6 & 7 in post #2. The blending and coloring is very good, and they are all varied - you did not just use the same brushes as you did on the others.

Some of your extracts seem pixelated or of bad quality - you can use blurs and overlays to fix some of this and make them look better. If you need brushes, try deviantart - they have some awesome sets, and they're free. You can also try smudging, which works well, especially if you are using photoshop.

Overall, some very nice sigs - keep posting! ^^
