    I hate text, sometimes I add it, or I don't. Really doesn't matter to me.

    Though sometimes I add it for a clear post of my name.

    i only put text if i need it there
    but other than that, no

    plus people, don't just slap in the text there
    put some placement where to put it in
    so it looks good with the tag

    The whole point of this site is for renders and for getting better at sig making, not getting others to make your own sigs.
    Really, think about what you're saying.
    I'm usually listening to music while making a sig, and the feel of the song I'm listening to will help me shape my sig, so I usually take a quote from the song that I feel suits the sig well.

    AntiFreeze = wtf?

    But I agree. I love gaining inspiration from something...ie:music, a movie, or something similar. And then trying to incorporate it into some artwork.

    Imo, the text is the hardest part and the part I always dread. Because it makes or breaks the sig and in the back of my mind I always know the text is coming up and it's always really hard. So...yeah. I don't really blame people for bad text.

    I think he's referring to my sig here.
    Sorry bud, but you can never have too much text :)

    Only thing that upsets me iwith text is when people put random names in the picture that have nothing to do with it, like a sig that just says tranquility and has a person and some effects. I doubt they know what the word means let alone how it relates to anything, not to mention theres about 100 other sigs with that same word in it and I doubt they know what it means either.

    hahaha yeah.

    its like a picture of marcus fenix and the tag says "joy". its so stupid to pair an abstract noun with some random stock.

    But looking good doesn't mean fitting the concept. I just hate seeing random text that has nothing to do with the tag thrown in there to get rid of some empty space. It has no meaning.

    Lol, I have seen people with text like that and I agree in those cases. Some people can do nice text though. I generally do it because either a tutorial says so or because I want the tag's name it in.
