    Great image treatment here. Layout wise, I think this piece had some better potential. (usually i I like to point guns at headlines) I'd flip the cut-out and the copy. The BG is looking good. Simple but effective.

    you seem to be a very nice person and an expert in giving advice about signatures...
    here is mine, it's been a very long time since i made a signature (about 5 years), so you could say this is a first :)

    I'm not a nice person at all ;)

    Centered layouts are a big NO.

    Type needs a lot of work. Cut-out is really crappy.

    BG looks nice.

    Coloring is ok.

    Rate away, it started of organized in my head, but kinda became not what I expected. Not sure if I really like it that much or not, I'm trying to get used to putting c4d or whatever they are in my sigs. I always felt like Its not my real work with one because I didn't make it.

    Not impressed by random brushing.

    I made the recommendation to do a Major Brand SOTW to see how well people could capture brands. Disney would be very upset with your use of their logo and character artwork. Destroying and image with a grunge style isn't up Disney's ally at all.

    If you want to improve the look and feel of this piece, i'd look at www.Disney.com, Disney Channel, Disney Cruise-lines, and other companies under Disney and see how they use their brand. This isn't it at all.

    Layout, color and composition are great. But the execution here is misguided.

    Really like this one. Wonderful color pallet here.

    Layout is interesting. Texture is great.

    You have some neg space there that looks empty...maybe fill it with text or a logo?

    Don't get used to using C4D to make forum signatures. I really don't get the appeal in it.

    You have a nice layout here with some great type. One thing you have to watch with color is your contrast focus. Your pure blacks/whites are going to be your primary highlights/shadows. Here, they are in the background, while your main graphic is gray. Good use of contrast, just seems backwards here. (use the curves tool to make the darker parts of the cut-out pure black with the eye-dropper)

    The composition for the ironman sig looked great on paper, but the image quality got destroyed when exported as a gif which i didn't consider. Not to thrilled with the results. The cut-out highlights look blown out and the shadows got plugged. It started out good though. Thanks for the input :)
