PLEASE NOTICE THE CHANGE IN MAXIMUM SIZE:
Since many people have been following the maximum size exactly as it’s written,
the entries are beginning to not look like signatures, and more like “Blocks”.
The maximum height has been reduced to 250 pixels to solve this problem.

According to previous entries in SOTW, nobody goes higher than a 250 height
other than the people who follow the dimensions exactly as they are.

For those of you who follow them exactly as written, I’d recommend using a one
of the following custom sizes that are within the dimensions, but work well:

380 X 90
410 X 100
420 X 110
450 X 130
500 X 180

Those are just some recommendations from personal experiences, but you are free
to choose a size of your liking that’s within the dimensions.


Size _ Max 500Wx250H

Stock/Render _ Musicians, Instruments, Music related objects/people (Real Life Stocks.)

Style/Theme _ Music/Musicians

Color _ Any

Font _ Any

Deadline _ Saturday, May 9th


Voting will begin on May 10th, 2009
Entries for SOTW #17 will begin on this day as well.

That’s not too bad but the text absolutely kills it.

 
Flag Post

The text is well done, but it doesn’t go with the rest of the sig. The Sig is blurry and the text is bright and sharp.
Good effects and flow though.

400*100 is what I use, and what I recommend to people.

Fiddled around with a few pics of my own digital piano a bit, ended up with just a few effects on the keys, and a blur on the rest. Thoughts? Also, is it better with or without the border?

 
Flag Post

ill use this instead and delete my other post.

Looking much better jammio, but the render placement seems weird if its slanted.

 
Flag Post

That is awesome!
But I’m a tiny bit doubtful that you made it.

 
Flag Post

i did? ill make a tut.

 
Flag Post

Need advice on the text placement.

 
Flag Post

i dunno.. it feels as if it needs something to the right.

That doesn’t fit the dimensions. :/

heres a tut on how i made mine.

My entry.

Is that Jimi Hendrix follow by Bob Marley, in the bottom right corner?

 
Flag Post

Yup. The only other band I can ID is ACDC top left, I think. That might be Pete Townsend next to them, but I don’t think so.

 
Flag Post

wrong, top left is guitarists from rolling stones.

 
Flag Post

Gosh darnit! I posted Rolling Stones originally, then edited my post thinking it was ACDC because that’s a weird shot of Keith Richards. /fail

CC and improvement tips, please…

 
Flag Post

Man, when I suggested this topic I really thought we’d see more band-specific sigs. These are looking pretty slick so far.

 
Flag Post

You think mine looks good? Wow, I thought it sucked rofl.

 
Flag Post

Why did you put the text there, yuyu? It doesn’t seem to do much for me other than strain my eyes trying to read it. I’d either make it more prominent or delete it all together. The color compo isn’t bad, although the guitar looks green, which looks odd.

 
Flag Post

Wow Jammio! That’s amazing improvement!
GMV!

NCIO check your whispers BTW.

 
Flag Post

Ya the text I didn’t like either at least blurr the edges to give the picture some sort of volume there, or remove it, it’s cool but not for that picture.

 
Flag Post

I hope one of you does something for Led Zeppelin.
