    Default Shadow Bahamut's banner/sig/avatar collection

    hey guys,
    i've only really just started doing these sig.s and avvys. Let me know what you think:

    this first one, is quite obviously my sig here at the minute:



    this one was one of my earlier experiments using a Tekken theme. Jin Kazama, no less:



    another tekken theme, Brian Fury, although this is extremely large for just a sig...:



    one for my special someone on a different forum:

    Hello!
    I'll assume your using Photoshop! They're all great but I'll leave a few advices nothing serious:

    - Make them smaller just a bit they can be 400*150!
    - The second and third have great colour, but don't make something so shiny! Try to put a dark colour and a bright one!
    - Use a less fuzzy border (I used a few fuzzy borders and they suck most of times)
    - Microsoft has awsome fonts you just have to play with them! The last font doesn't match with the sig and it's hard to read! You can use funny fonts with the ones that came with your computer.

    Now if you follow these your banners will be awsome!
    They're really good for first tries!

    They are very nice so far! WAYYY better than mine when I first started!!! But I don't like the overlaying of renders. Try and use only one.

    Study Owen's works-you'll learn a lot!

    I agree with this person. A bit more variety in borders, or rather no borders at all. The centre of your signatures is good though. That burning sort of text that you've got there is really nice (looks for it on net).
