Aister, the guidelines for voting for a sig in any respectable SOTW has to deal with the overall effect, balance, and quality of the signature. Not just sticking a random meme on there. Try to vote for the best ART, not for the funniest joke.

idk... I just know that the sigs doesn't need to be woaaaa awesome... and flashy and catchy with tons of effects and actions... The sig which everyone like most, either becuz of its meaningful, beautiful artwork, or funny, will be voted the most, and will be the winner.

Take the sig that I'm using right now. I have the stock lying around somewhere, the changes I made to it took forever and I at least think it turned out quite beautiful.

I think that the smoothness and niceness of a signature is one of the best qualities to go for.

tell me watever u like Kenny, but I believe a simple sig that is funny or meaningful is enough. I don't like spending hours after hours, days after days making a sig.

Something simple, easy to understand and doesn't require lots of work but gain the same effects is wat I prefer the most.

U sir are a liar ...


why people think abut art as some mysterious thing that everyone has to do the same way ...
everyone can do the sig thei own way ... and dont wory you can vote for someone you thought worked the hardest on the sig.
and go ahead send 2 weeks making 1 signature and i know you can be proud of it but dont just tell others how they should make ART.... Please!


if you dont know what art is then dont argue.



MMMMMMMMMMMMMMMEND

The first one has some pretty decent animation that's smooth. I'd have to go with that one. It's "flashier" but more impressive than the one under it.

My critique on the first one has to be.. dim the colors a bit so I'm not blinded by the explosions. Also, the text is blurry and doubled, I'd go for something a bit cleaner, or make the words appear as part of the fireworks. That would blend much nicer.

My critique on the bottom is that it looks like the original picture used was not edited at all, or just a little. I'd have to see the original picture to make a better critique. Text is awkward. It covers details that are interesting in the bottom right.. I'd have removed the purple fireworks and reduce the blue on and put the text there. Also, I'd make the picture lighter so the silhouette pops out better. Perhaps put in a few C4Ds to create a flow to the picture. Atm, it's stagnant.

and to ur surprise, the second won the SotW... why? Simply it is more meaningful and has something in it, rather than just a flashy and catchy animations.

the SotW is not a place to determine who has more talent in photoshop skills or animation skills. As I said, most of us only know how to put layers, and do some simple layer styles. Knowing this, almost all of us never vote on a sig based purely on the art. Of course, if the sig is poorly done, it never got voted.

Making a sig that most ppl like, is wat important. U can spend times modifying, cropping, putting layers after layers or making tons-of-frames animations, but something if u didn't catch the eyes and attentions of the voters, u already fail the contest.

And that's why we can't have SOTW competitions like other good forums.
