Mind if I insert an opinion here? The style is interesting, that’s for certain/ I have a few issues with it myself though. First and foremost, I think it’s a little washed out. My primary suggest would be to add some contrast to it, make a new layer and apply your image on top, simply setting that new layer to overlay and playing with the opacity could do wonders for the overall feel.

My final two grips are more style choices. For one, your text is nearly unreadable. My opinion there would be to stroke the text and set the stroke to overlay and turn the opacity down until it makes the text “pop” just a little. Last would be the lack of a well-defined border. Brighter borders work fine on sites with dark layouts. But for a site like moviecodec which has a bright layout, I think it needs a darker border. Maybe taking your border and changing your layer setting (again) to overlay.

You want a rating or a critique like I did for Uma? My 'ratings' are pretty harsh, bro. I rate most of my own signatures around 6 or 7 (out of 10). <_<;

Critique is is, then.

First and foremost, I think the placement of the render is a little off. His face should be the primary focal point, giving the somewhat blandness of the pose. So I’d have moved the render up so that his head was about in the center of the sig’s vertical axis.

Second, opposite of Matt’s signature, I think your signature has WAY too much contrast. I’ve never really dealt with GIMP before, so I’ve got no clue how to decrease the contrast in it, but I’d make the background a little more washed out so that the focal point (Deadpool) shows out a lot more. You’ve also got a lot of crisp lines in the background, these take away somewhat from your focal as well. To avoid this, simply blur the entire image a little and then erase over your focal. This creates a bit of a “border” between your render and your background.

Finally, you’ve got a lot of color. In some cases that works... In this case, I don’t think it works as well. I’d suggest giving a light red tint over the entire image so that all those blues (which seriously clash with the rest of the image and draw attention away from Deadpool) will appear more purplish and fit the red theme better.

I might have been wrong about the text in this one case...

Other than that, I think it looks a lot better. Maybe just drop the opacity down on that overlay layer a few points.

I actually made it with a futuristic and nontraditional theme, hence the render placement and color scheme/contrast.

Yeah, I think so too.

If you look closely there are no “organic” type lines in the signature, I went with a futuristic and sharp style to complement the render and keep the advanced feel with Iron Man himself.
