I'm joking. Anything I want to tell you, I tell you on skype. :) I see you're having some good progress... I like them.

do you by any chance think the dragon one looks a bit pixelated?
and i dont think i used bevel and emboss :p i do like it though!

You could've blurred render a bit, but only thing that is pixelated is your text.
Start working on your text, and on your background.... Don't use drop shadow every time. There are bunch of other ways to make siggy look 3D. Blur/Sharpen is a good example. But, it all depends on taste. ;)

I see... Transition/Spread ? You should darken your background a bit, either by burning it, or placing black layer below, and changing opacity of this one.
And change colour of it. Like dark brown... And use some better font. Google it! Write something like: "Dragon Font". :) Trust me, it usually works. You'll find one that will match theme....

wow i googled it and found a couple thanks!

Yeah, I saw them, remember? :p

Try experimenting with smudge tool, you'll see.. :) Open window "Brushes", and when there you'll have a lot of options... (brushes, smudge tool, eraser, everything) Sorry, I call it that... But in PS it's called "Scattering and Transfer"...

I don't want to sound insulting, but last signature is AWFUL. No flow, everything is messed up, I guess focal point should be Neo (who is almost invisible due 100000 c4d's placed over him), no light source, no colour balance...

You should have 1 idea, and just work it out till perfection. (or till you give your best) And not just make random signatures and place them in your showroom. :/

In fairness to him, the colour balance works well imo. It isn't "awful", it just could be improved upon :p

Oh, and I will sort out premium this week. Bank's put a block on my card for some reason :|
