Thanks for the comment. I hope the texting has improved. I only had time for 1 banner. But I put alot of effort in this.

Nice banners but that still doesn't mean you can double-triple post. Edit your first post with your new banners. Everyone that checks here is gonna check the first post so yeah, seems sensible.

Please read the bloody rules before slagging off someone (which is hypocritical anyway, considering your horrendously large sig). The thread starter is allowed to bump their art thread with new material as much as they like.

Anyway, your sigs are extremely good, John E. The Warcraft sig is great, no real criticisms to be made. The "Warhammer" text on the Chaos Marine sig looks a bit out of place, as does your "John E" watermark. Also, the render's edges look a bit weird around the gun. Nevertheless, interesting new concept.

The Sly Cooper sig doesn't look all that great. Colours are odd (especially towards the right half of the sig, where you have brown and blue mixed together). Yet again, the watermark looks bad and doesn't go with the sig. Blood Magic sig is brilliant; no comments there either, except that the watermark doesn't go well either there. The Driver sig is interesting, and certainly original, but I'm not really a big fan of the style. But hey, that's just me. :P

The Crusader sig looks okay, but a bit too dark. Same for Venom. I think overall, you need to work on making your watermarks a bit less obtrusive; particularly on Driver, Sly Cooper, Blood Magic and Warhammer, it looks very out-of-place. It's not that necessary either, to be honest. I've never used watermarks, I've just used my username as the main text.

Consider trying to get your text to stand out just a teensy bit more. Otherwise, they're all, like, really good. (Except for the Aqua Man one. The render sticks out way too much.)

Your stuff is awesome. <3

Thanks for the advice. I don't think I'll add my watermark anymore. I've tried to make the text more noticable. The banner is a bit more lighter than my old ones.

From the game, Assassins Creed.

Quite an improvement from what was already pretty impressive. The choice of colours is interesting, and it actually works quite well. The text is perfect. Perhaps the only suggestion I can really make is that the border looks a little drab. Perhaps make it overlay?

Yeah, the border isn't the best. I always forget about it, or just don't make them. I'll try the overlay border thing, thanks. Here are my tries at pop-up or whatever they call it banners, there too big for mw though, so I don't think I'll be making them anymore.

Image
Spiderman banner. I guess it should be a Spiderman 3 banner, since theres a dark side of him. The border is just plain 1 pixel balck line for the length, 3 pixel black for the width.


Image
Forgot the border here. I merged all the layers before I stoke it, so yeah.

Those are awesome! I really like what you did with a border.
A chibi is, hhhmmm, how should I put this...., sort of like a smaller and cuter version of a character from manga or anime. Example:

Image

So cute right? :lol:

Yeah, most people don't use prites in signatures because they tend to not blend well enough with the backround and stuff. Go Renders! Anyways, great as ever! :D

Text on Versus and Skater looks a bit off. Stands out too much. All the rest is great, though.
