I'm pretty sure galleries consist of more than one piece, but whatever, the banner is pretty cool, good work.

ew that font is ugly

i suggest getting fonts from swimchick.net (jane austen > *) or even dafont before you even try to make an "advanced" sig. :(

I like what you've got so far, but it needs something more. You have a great background, so now add an image or something. Or just make really big well designed text. There's just so much empty space.

It is great so far but it is too empty... I'd suggest putting in a light blue pokemon in all that emptiness.

And yes, that font IS ugly, I strongly suggest a change

But that's just my (A.K.A a nobody's) opinion. Don't worry about it too much.

The colors are fine as well as the pattern, and there nothing wrong with a simple signature. You don't have to add an image. I like it, though the text is off-putting.

blah
I was bored. I was too lazy to go find a render for it. I tried a battle revolution image of squirtle but it just looked awful D:
I did download a bunch of texts, but they all looked even worse than this. I know, this sucks too, but it suits the sig better than the ones I downloaded. I'm going to try edit it though so the text + border look ok.
EDIT: I tried and it looked worse. Oh well :(

If you're going to make a sig without a render, make the text bigger so the sig doesn't look so empty. Also, try a different font, and set the style to 'strong' (if possible)

Also, don't be afraid to use default fonts. such as georgia, century gothic, etc. ;)

why do you have a combee avatar. YOU KNOW COMBEE IS MY FAVORITE >:|

anyways, thise are decent looking, the bidoof one is blurry, and they all need to look like you actually did work on them instead of adding a border and cropping it down to 70x70. Just my 2 cents.

And you know I like annoying you :p
Meh, I changed mine for you. I like Vibrava too <3
But I can't see how I can fix the problem that they look like they had too little work on them (which they did D:). We all know I'm crap at putting text on anything.

i agree with poplers about the fact that they look like you just cropped them and added a border. maybe try some pixel/bitmap fonts? if you set them to 7 or 8pt, put 'none' for the text style, and add a 1px border/stroke, it looks really nice on small avatars.

:)

The banner's font is bad, try to use the simple like Impact ( don't make it italic )

The avatars are awesome :o

They're just scans of TCG cards, nothing super-special.
I crop stuff like that for myself often. (Like what I'm using right now.)
That is not to say that they aren't ugly; they actually turned out quite well.

and cropping it down to 70x70.

The limit is technically 75x75, but both work well.

If you use Photoshop / GIMP to make Avatar, try to stroke out the text :)

*Revives again*

Meh, I decided to have a go at revamping again and this is how my attempt worked out. It took me about 40 minutes, because I completely redid all of the shading.

I'm personally quite pleased with it. It's from Pokemon Yellow, btw.

I have, and can use up to a point, GIMP, but I do prefer paint. The sigs I made at the top of the page were made using GIMP.
