Here we can submit our sigs and out them up for review. You may simply submit to say “This is what I did” or you can have an official review (probably from Tippership, Cid, or Umamatt.)

There will be a rating system, based on theme, flow, quality, and overall look. Probably a 1-20 rating.

Any more input to the rules are welcomed, as I would like to hear the opinions of Tipper, Cid, and Umamatt.

Regarding this topic- I will recommend we go “purpose-driven” as I described-
Also, Anyone who has a grasp of Signatures should feel free to review.

If you are someone who hasn’t made signatures at all or perhaps only a few- don’t hesitate to post here , as well as describing what you were aiming for, how you went about doing it, and so on- that’s the sort of detail that allows us to get the best idea of a signature.

I Also ask the others who run Signatures on here to not shy away from posting here if you feel you might want some thoughts-in other words, this isn’t just for “up-and coming"siggers. It’s also for long-time sig producers, or senior members of MVC who have stopped making signatures.

Of course if you wish to run something by a member- PM away.

Interesting idea-

When signatures are made- they often are made to capture a specific purpose or feel-as intended by the creator.

We need to determine if this will be based purely on artistic traits(focal points, Rule of Thirds, lighting, transferring, and so on), or whenther a person submitting a sig for review is on the right track, what additioal tricks they could use to enhance their style from time to time that might help convey what they are trying to show to audiences, etc.

ie We can go “art-strict” or “purpose-driven” (since beauty is in the eye of the beholder and beholdee seperately)

I think this is a very good idea, nontheless.

Requesting advice on this signature- in the format of “purpose-driven” as I outlined above.

This is in regards to the path light flow I have circling this work- I’ve often employed such techniques on real-life photos to very great effect however I’m still not sure about my version of incorporating them into my works such as this- does the light path work out?

I am still working on this one more or less- although I reckon as a scrap, it’s very far along XD

The border works a bit against the flow. Is there anyway you could continue the pattern closer towards the render, but blend it as it gets closer.

I can easily expand the border more- however, it’s very hard to see- and while it’s trivial to do, I have a feeling that it’ll become practically invisible. I’ll try it out. And yes, I can fade the border’s pattern as it gets closer.

If you’re referring to the light bands- ...maybe.

I love this, and seeing how I tried to start this a while back it got miserably lost lol

I think when people post their signatures they should tell us what kind of a feeling they were trying to achieve i.e general terms such as dark, tech-y, bright, happy, sci-fi-ish lol get what im saying?

Also I think we should lessen the scale to 1-10, to give it a more harsh rating style. The harsher the rating, the better it will make you.

Now don’t let that discourage you new signature makers from posting, were not devils. (except maybe Cid lol) We wont be so harsh that you’ll have your feelings hurt, it will just be harsh enough to make you realize what you need to improve on.

Great Idea, we can hopefully get J-peth to sticky it and knock out all those other signature threads, and make this the one big thread for show-off. In fact, if you can still change the title, make is Signature Show-off. Its letting everyone know that this is where they can come to get critiqued.

Lets not let this thread get lost in the mish mosh of the site, bump if necessary. smiley

Wait a second, you’re referring to the electricity background, no? Lol, that’s not the border.

Very Well, Let me see what I can do in regards to the electricity background. I didnt watn it to interfere with the renders to the right of Surge, as those will be hard to show through....very hard..

I feel Purpose-driven is a better angle to look at signatures. These are aiming for more of a mass appeal rather than a art-strict criteria- as that won’t always hold.
