    Well here's my first one; Blastoise!!

    C&C, and if you want, suggest a pokemon for me to do a sig on. Pikachu

    Well time for alittle more detailed comment:
    ~Size - Dude, you have to be kidding me, thats enourmous for a signature or a tag! Plus the black effect and background place is boring, because it is empty!
    ~Render - I like the render, but it is too small, but consider the effects you made, it would look amazing on a smaller sized version! The Pikachu one is totally usefull and steals the attention!
    ~Effects - The cyan and dark ones are good, but some of the white ones arent appropriate for the theme of the sig!

    ~Suggestions:
    Fix the sizes, use renders, not sprites, when using brushes, there should be atleast from 2-7 times applied the effect of Sharpening, so it would make it much more realistic! + making a background so wide, atleast grap a brush from one the used and use on of the colours from the render and brush on the background, but not too much, after that apply effect on the layer "Soft Light" or "Overlay" and decrease the opacity from 20 to 50 MAX!

    Thanks for the feedback guys, i appreciate it! Very Happy
    @Angat Ok, I already got the sizes part Razz and as for the sprites, I couldn't find a render of a pikachu facing back, so i had to resort to a sprite. (~Off-topic: apparently pikachu auto-corrects to spinach. =_=) This part i didn't really understnd though...

    He meant to say use some brushes to make BG, then set the layer to Soft Light or Overlay and then lower it's opacity.

    For making signature's the best one is Photoshop believe me and here is a small tutorial from me, no need to thank me:
    Spoiler:

    ~Here are the two samples that are most important for the tutorial:
    -Background:

    -Render:

    -Place render and choose a place from which you will get a colour from it by using the Eyedropper Tool (I did from the back of the Articuno's wings, near the tip) and choose a brush that you used for adding effects. As color choose the color you extracted from the render and brush alittle on a new layer that you placed between the layer of the background and the render, here is the result:

    -Then make the layer from Normal to Overlay and drop the Opacity from 20 to 50% at maximum if the color is too bright (I dropped it on 30%)

    -Create a new layer and place it between the layer from the top step and the layer with the render. Select a white colour and brush alittle on the background and behind the render.

    -Now make the from from Normal to Soft Light and drop to Opacity from 30 to 50% at maximum (I dropped it on 30%)

    ~After that there are alot more stuff you can do for just making the signature much more realistic! I hope this tutorial helped since it is my first tutorial and it is very shitty, I will soon make a tutorial as I make a signature of Articuno using my style!

    1. Don't name it SOTW, make it like a "PokeSign Competition"
    2. Add some different rules (not weekly, maybe monthly?)
    rest I allow, just post in pokeart section only

    Okay here is everything I have to say:
    1st - The perfect size (Well for me) is 325x180 (It gives alot of space and doesnt leave alot that will be empty!)
    2nd - The focal point is on the Lightnings and the Text!
    3rd - The effects are good they suit up the theme!
    4th - The render's quality isn't as good as the image you showed us.
    5th - When making a border, keep it black or white only so the image can pop-up even more!
    6th - Keep up the good work and you'll be a great GFX-er one day!
