Oh open for criticism?!?!?!?! Ahaha I'm really anal about my own work personally...

Probably the best one out of all of them is... The first one. And the first one isn't that great in itself either. You need to work on your typography. The focus of all of the signatures are unclear except for the Avalon one.

Some of the added effects are a little eccentric and it's better if you don't make them pop out more than your stock images. Try using the same type of colors such as warm with warm and cold with cold. Rather than mixing everything up.

I do think you can do better... The biggest issue is the typography. That's all from me. Don't mistake this for bashing. I'm just telling you what I see. ;D

-On that note-

I don't mind that your avie is similar to ours either. Since the word Myriad isn't there... And of course you're welcome to join.. -puts Noble out- You can have him if you join ;O

Typography is the font and how well it works with the rest of the image. That appears to be your biggest problem so far. Make sure to get a lot of fonts and try things out. Don't stay in a comfort zone of the same type of font.

You can mix and match as well. I like to use a different font for the first letter of my name in most cases.

A good place to look for fonts is DAfont.

And well you can't have Noble unless you join. I'll wait for the chance that I may see your application one day. If not, chit happens. ;D

For the font basically you download it, extract it, and then drag it into the fonts folder which is usually in control panel if you're using XP. For windows 7 you can press start and type in fonts where it says search for folders.

The fonts will automatically be added the next time you open adobe. Cause it loads from there.

I didn't say it was your only flaw but it's the biggest. Typography makes the image. If your font stands out more than the picture, makes the signature kind of worthless. You want people to look at the whole thing rather their first impression being "Oh god she used all sorts of weird font."

Try to keep to a small color scale. You use too many colors that clash with one another. That makes people not want to look at the signature for a long period of time. Unless that's what you intended, then it is fine.

As for Noble... My say > His say But I'm sure for the sake of the guild he will offer himself up anyway~!

Oh sorry about the worthless thing. It just makes me sad when the image gets neglected because the font takes up more attention.

But yeah! Can't wait to see it, if you want to show us that is.

Also, you don't have to ask to join our chat o.o It's public for a reason. If I wanted it to be guild member only I would've made it private. ;D So come and chat with us whenever you feel like it!

No problem! If you put effort into it, and I see you did, I won't say anything. Well I will still give pointers though.

Hope to see you soon in our chat!
