That looks great! Instead of using your typical favourite colours to use () like yellow, orange, red and more red; why don't you go for something slightly different? Keep the same pattern/design just apply lighter colours to go with the actual render. E.g. Some pinky red, purple, light yellow..?
You just need to blend in the render somehow and it would be a cool sig.Lol@ the text though
If it makes you feel better, the render is all that easy to use~
@ Shin - I like your sig. The text made me, lol. Did you see mine? trust me it's worse so I feel the same. I like how you have more of the render visible. I also agree with both Bugzee and Kakashi, the colors look too masculine for the render and it could blended in a bit more, but the background itself is really cool.
I have to say once again, GIMP gives me a headache....
Where are the layers??
Why does it automatically make all the layers in a PSD visible?
How do you even use the text tool....
They made the program too shrouded in mystery~
I don't really particularly like GIMP tbh. The messy layout puts me off lol. I mean, obviously those who don't have photoshop (or any other similar programs) can take advantage of GIMP I guess...since it's a freebie and all xD.
On a random note: 10 Free Web-based Alternatives to Photoshop
I might check some of them out~
Gimp is a bit difficult at first,but you get used to it after a while. I didn't like it at first,but then I started to get used to it and when I started back using PS I had no idea what to do. It was so different than I remember lol.
All hail Photoshop.
The first time I opened GIMP, I opened a PSD file and it made all the layers visible... which was really annoying (but the layers window to the right side was there)
I opened it again yesterday to quickly edit something, but the layers window was no longer there, so I went to view.... didnt see anything to turn a window for it on.
So I went to add text, which is what I needed to do. I click the text tool, click where I want the text, a box pops up so I can enter text. I do so, click ok. The text doesnt appear....
Ok, since Im a computer guy, if I wasn't in such a hurry to get the text in, I ccould of figured it out no problem, since Im good with software, but I WAS in a hurry lol.
Just to talk from a Pro-photoshop side The layers window automatically displays everytime when you open photoshop and the text tool works when you click on a spot and type and you can customize which type of windows you want from the zView tab~
Uh, so I want to participate in this contest..
and I'm almost done with my sig..just a little problem.
If anyone remember with the chessmate signature, its the same problem.
I'm having problem resizing , whenever i resize it to 500x170
it becomes toooooo stretched and ugly and I want to keep it's shape.
Do anyone knows how to resize it?
and is it a must to be 500 x 170?
170x550 pixels (300 kilobytes in file size) is simply the maximum size limit. If you want to use a vertical dimension smaller than 170 pixels or a horizontal dimension less than 550 pixels, you can.
The winner of the rabbit sig contest has been decided, and the person with the best bunny is Bugzee!
This adorable signature fits perfectly with the spirit of this theme as it ingeniously weaves together so much relevant imagery. As I mentioned in mod comment in the submission post, the theme was inspired by the Chinese New Year. The artwork definitely has a very traditional Oriental style to it. To further underscore the connection of rabbit to the year, elements of the various seasons are strewn throughout the image from the bountiful fruits and loving hearts of spring to the autumn leaves and delicate winter snowflake placed brilliantly to look like the head of a dandelion.
I counted six rabbits in the signature (how many do you all see? ) with one precious rabbit in the center as the focus with a look of blissful satisfaction as suggesting that it is responsible for blessings all around it. The lucky nature of this cute little fellow is supported by the placement of rainbow ending right at its feet.
That guy on the right side looks somewhat familiar. He seems like a chibi version of an anime character, but I can't quite place where I've seen him before. At first glance, he seems somewhat out-of-place amongst everything else going on, but upon closer inspection, one can see that his hat provides the last, missing element that completes this symbolic homage to rabbits: the moon.
Most importantly, this signature's sooo cute!
Amazing job, Bugzee! This signature definitely makes me feel very proud to have been born in the Year of the Rabbit!
Please be sure to wish Bugzee congratulations on his hop to first place!
There is still one week left on the same render contest. So far, there are only two submissions. Hope to see more soon!

Thank you Tsukisama!
But I have another problem, I forgotten to put my name for the entry and the link for the original render..I'm sorry but can you help me edit it?
Thanks in advance!
Anyway here is my sig, the resize version,
it looks out of proportion after the resize, here's the original version..which I think looks better in that size.
I think I fixed your submission post. Does everything look alright now?
