    in which case, yours is too, because you have no suggestions on how to improve this sig.

    positiv reponse is not useless... it makes you proud of what you made. :)

    but... " okay to me, nothing speciel" lol? say what he should do then.

    i think he did a great job here, and i havent seen anything better on this forum from you guys.

    his previous one is better imo. and you probably haven't seen anything better here because pretty much all of the good taggers left. no offense guys :) They just had more experience.

    actually since you say this, let me break down exactly how yours is useless.

    for one you say postive...cool and everything BUT you failed an obvious and since you can't spot a flaw or suggest anything, infact if you looked farther or seen nabeel works more you would def know that this isn't his best. it really isn't, i mean yes it looks great and everything but really now......... to me the smudge is some what dull with colors i dunno but the vibe of it is just dull.

    i took offense to saying " and i havent seen anything better on this forum from you guys."

    but w.e i don't feel the need to explain that and i'm prolly gonna gain another warning but just so you know, don't toss words around so meaninglessly

    well legion just wanted to say but I like your stuff ;) it needs some work but I like it.

    anyway as to nabeel's sig imo the render doesn't blend well. I think it would look better if you just took her out.

    Ignoring every post previous to mine:

    I liked your last sig more. The smudging is good, nice flow to the sig. The colors are also pretty good. It's just the render doesn't really work..

    Thanks Ian ;)

    I wouldn't say that, but it's your opinion, so...

    @legio:
    You didn't insult anyone, you criticised them, that's perfectly fine and wont get anyone a warning. I'm working on a way to prevent the useless critique a bit.

    Anyway, back to topic:
    I like the kind of retro-ish look, but the smudging transition really looks weird at the render's shoulder. The colors are also nicely fitting, but in the end there's no WOW-effect for me, no highlight or something similar.

    Hmm.. I understand what you mean. The biggest reason that caused the shoulder problem is the lack of black smudged lines that are all over the sig but not on the shoulder. I just took a look at the psd and it seems I forgot to add em. So it looks really weird compared to the rest of it.

    Though any suggestions on how to add the 'wow' factor would be appreciated.

    Try this, its just a crazy idea, add some bright fractals here and there but they have to be small and then sharpen the whole thing by a bit :p

    Hey, I'm still here man. ; D

    In any case, it's not bad but this smudge style has been whored too much to the point that it gets incredibly boring to see anybody do anymore unless you execute it like totally pro. This tag could also use a little work on the lighting and transition. Lastly, it looks like you over-used greyC or topaz.
