1st (3 Pts): Apfeljack + The font fits perfect in here! :D
2nd (2 Pts): YayaFTW + I prefered the colours you used in your sig before but it's still awesome!
3rd (1 Pt): fashionablellama + Great harmony of colours.

Btw: I didn't put much effort into my signature because I had no idea what to do and was a bit frustrated
so I created this .. well ****. Still better than nothing. :/

Oh god, I put the - in the wrong place. Thanks for picking up on that! It's because Veng used to be at the top, but I moved him down to "V" instead of "-". Will fix!

3rd (1 Pt) XeresAce - I love the signature you made,too bad the text ruined but I can't say why because I don't know too much about text(I am still learning how to do a good text and where to place it) I just don't like where it is and how it looks.

I seriously can't work with text. I made 4 signatures including this one and the text killed all of them. It always feels like the text takes way too much away from the image and I avoid using it unless I focus on it as the focal point of the art piece. Only slapped the text on there out of necessity >_< Thanks for the feedback though!
Thanks to GrandmasterD for the sig!

i know the issue of trying to pull off some creative work on demand, especially if somewhat tired.
being observant of small details around you (take a walk, navigate the web, have silly conversations) and making a "if i do this" exercise sometimes helps in finding a new source for creativity, being shapes, methods or color schemes.

still better than nothing, yes. =]

No critism on mine? So it's perfect? Why no vote then xD

jhoijhoi wrote:

Voting ends todaaaay :) So get your votes in!

Here's my constructive criticism:

> mastrer: I liked your idea a lot. I'm not sure why there is a faint white pixlated outline around the letters, but that can normally be removed with an inside stroke of 1px. I'd also center the text, as right now it's off to the left.

> Amanda: I really actually didn't like this one. The colours seemed over saturated, the text squished to the side and a lot of blank space on the left.

> Apfel: I like the composition, but felt the colour was a bit washed out?

> Maw: Love the text, not sure about the placement. The render also seems to be too far to the left. But I liked the sig.

> Xeres: I don't like the text, it looks really blurry.

> llama: I absolutely love yours. I'm not sure about the text, as it looks really sharpened, but that was probably the intention. The whole sig is so crisp and clean.

> Bludes: I liked the idea, but I think the execution was lacking. It would have looked more uniform if you had used Impact as the actual font and applied a clipping mask over the top of the smaller letters. If that makes sense?

> Veng: Not quite sure what to think about your sig. It's bright and lively, but the text is awkward to me.

> Dream: The text placement and effects on it look really odd. I don't think Amanda's lines suit this sig, because of the background. The lines make it just look like... you know how when you take a photo of a computer screen? That sort of distortion.

> Hogo: Really like blurred effects you've used here. I think the text may be a bit too close to the center, but I like the overall signature.

> Yaya: I think the text could have been closer together and I dont like the pink glowing fractal on her arm. But like the overall image :)

> Test: I don't like the lines in this one, or the text. The smudging is goof though!

> Kinen: Like I said before, amazing progress made. I don't like the fractal on her hand because of the grainy texture you put over the top. Also, the text could have been placed closer together. But great use of composition :)

> Cotton: I don't like either text placement, but like the words you chose. I could see them being used with that image. The sig is also very hevily saturated, I think adding a gradient and setting it to soft and a low opacity would have added depth to the colours. Good attempt!




MY VOTE
1st (3 Pts): fashionablellama - I really enjoy looking at your piece. Please see feedback above :)
2nd (2 Pts): Kinen - You've shown the most improvement during this competition. I can't wait to see what you come up with next!
3rd (1 Pt): Bludes - You have also shown remarkable improvement during this competition. Well done :)

leipetaco: Sorry, I'm not sure how I missed yours. I like the idea of this photomanipulation, but have a few problems with it. The text in the water is really hard to read and I think it could be placed elsewhere. The stop sign/street lights on the right confuses me, as my eyes play ping pong going back and forth betwee the two main focals. Additionally, the lighting is off, as the main light source is coming from the middle, so there should be more shadow on the street light. Lastly, the text "invasion" and the word "stop" makes me think that the boat is invading the land - if that's the case, why is the stop sign facing the audience, and not the boat? Overall, I liked the idea, but I think it could be executed better.

@Dream: I'm giving you until I wake up tomorrow to cast your vote, otherwise you don't get your participation point, and I continue on to Round Four.

The original photograph existed of the sea overflowing some landscape with a street light on it. I didn't change anything about the lighting at all. Only made the edges a bit darker so it would get a more guessy outcome. In this manipulation there is not really a main focus like most signatures being made here. You have to view it as one picture with the focus on the complete design. There are always things that will bring attention to it like the boat and the traffic light.

I've made this signature just to improve my manipulation skills and thought I could compete with it. But people here are only focussed on the standard "signature" with a render and background. For the next round I will focus on that too. If people want to get better in photoshop/photo editing, they really should design more into other designs like manipulations and others. The skills required for other designs are completely different. It's good for your overall quality of your signatures.
