    Signatures have to be rectangular, not square-like. Use size like 400x150..
    It's very low quality. The render somehow doesn't look well blended enough. No effects. The text isn't so good either. Just read some tutorials before you get going on tis again...

    Much height..

    Also you don't make a clipping mask on text with the background /fp

    Good job for your first , but you got much to improve..

    Do not agree with you there , you can have it any size you want ! all depends on what sig it is and style and the right size

    This is very good for your first but, the sig is lacking depth and creativity.
    there are very little effects here, there is way to much of a focal to the point to where it stands out completely.


    the render, IMO, doesn't fit the background at all wither.

    look up some tuts on youtube, they help alot.

    PS: the sig size is up to the creator.

    Cool
    Looks good.
    Try making the render more to blend , and the BG is pretty simple.Try adding some C4ds and Clip Mask the Text better.

    @Rawburt Learn what derp means and learn to appreciate suggestions and criticism when you ask for them.

    Of course you can use clipping masks on text. No rule to say you cannot.

    he is half right...
    traditionally a forum signature is small and rectangular.

    traditionally a forum signature has a centred focal, good flow, is somewhat mono-toned and has one light source, its clean and clear.

    however, there is a variation of a signature that is far more popular. this is a tag.

    a tag is a signature without rules, it doesnt have to have a clear defined focal, the focal isnt centred, they come in all sorts of weird shapes and sizes and are often very chaotic.

    i personally call them both sigs because essentially they are just two different variations of the same thing.

    back on topic:
    the sig is very well done for a first sig...
    its a bit big and empty, if your gonna have something that size fill it with stuff. you have a well defined focal however not much lighting and/or depth. YES you have a focal and a background but there is more then that to depth you have little to no flow and a very monotone colour scheme.

    keep it up though, its a very good start. cant wait to see more
