    Wow it's been a while since I've been on here. This is really the only place I know I can go for some criticism so, criticize away at these newest ones. :evil:

    Don't like this one too much, I'm bad at smudging >.>

    Oh someone commented. Thanks. Stock background with smudging of colors to brighten certain colors and such. That one is my favorite.

    ok. they are all way to bright imo that needs to be toned down a smidge. a lot of them have parts of it where it is wayyyyyy to sharpened. they all seem like all you did was take a stock image and add a little of this or a little of that here and there. the random shapes and lines in all of them seem odd and misplaced overall and i would try to refrain from doing it so much. in a few ok. not in all of the things you do. i would definitely go look at some tutorials on this website and others. you have potential you just need some work

    The rendering is awful, what is probably what Tijuk meant by 'crappily resized'. You can cleary see a lot of white pixels on the edges of the 'render'. Second thing what comes to my mind is that all the renders look like they're placed in random places without blending it in. You also don't work with shadows.

    Text is unreadable. It can make or break a signature, so it is very important to give your text a function.

    I can only see it too sharp in one, and the "Crappy rendering" in one as well. The rest there are a few little spots which do not stand out at all. The text really doesn't need to me readable. I feel that having it there where it fits is best. It doesn't have to be readable. The shapes and lines are all around the focus, and flowing together.

    I'm not sure if you're serious or that your computer doesn't show you the right image. All of them are very badly rendered and not blended in at all. If you can't read text, why bother adding it? As a watermark?

    There is no real focus in any of them either, so I'm not sure why you think all of the effects are 'inside the focus'.

    all effects should not be in all the focus they should lead into or away from, work on composition also the subjects are a lil large for the styles if you use a large subject less effect works best, the rendering is very bad clean up renders before using them, were trying to help not bash, if you actually apply the critiques to your work you will be surprised , i was , when I started I thought I knew it all hell I am adobe certified legit went to school actually taught beg user classes for ps4 at New Horizons but when I came to start designing instead of just web pages i was introduced to a whole new world , take the critique as constructive critisicm and then apply it and your results will stun you and improve you in more ways then 1

    i would agree with most of the prev comments. all the renders have black or while pixels around them which gives the edges and appearance of being over sharpened and the colours are pretty bright in most of them but is down to personal choice. personally i would say try to move away from 2d anime because it is alot harder to add depth to a sig when there isnt much depth in the render itself. try using less effect and try and think minimal and try and use alot of default brushing in your sigs and you will notice a improvement. also think of light source and overall lighting. but at the same time dont leave too much blank or white space. i can see you are doing pretty well but overall everyone here is giving you pretty good tips so i would go back to the drawing board and see how it can improve.

    look forward to seeing more of your work.
