I really like the concept, but it’s very well executed. Try adding some more detail, more soilders? Or scrap it and make something new with the same concept.

INB4 COD!
lol jk…

Ill have to look for a good render for this one.
I have a feeling that I will not do very good in this contest. But I’ll try :P

War is also very broad, i could do like God of War right? or World of War craft?

Liking the war theme. I have been working on a sig and with some slight changes made it into a war sig

CC please

Pirate take some more time on it, the picture looks too choppy you need to blur the edges, also get a different background it doesn’t fit the graffiti and I have no idea what is behind him but take that out also because it looks funny, try finding a different background that fits a US soldier.

The whole concept is just brilliant.

The credit war looks better?

If you look closely they are £0 notes
Mega CC please

VERY VERY VERY messy and lots of pixelation. The Red overlay destroys a lot of the images and the text doesn’t fit well. There’s no noticeable salient point and the top left looks very foggy and awkwardly cut out.

However it’s the most complex sig I’ve seen from u so far so I’ll give u credit for that.

 
Flag Post

Yeah not sure why the red was there, I think it came from the notes – will try remove red.
Pixely is the text on the notes, will try remove smooth out.

Top left was cut out bad, it was meant to be the money cutting him out so he is finding the credit crunch (fav cereal) hard.

better? worse?

I thought SNES was next?
EDIT: Better pirateMonkey.

Only three entries? :‘(
piratemonkey: I kinda liked the first one, the second’s text is bad. NEVER put text in a corner (unless that’s where the focal is, or the rest of the sig is filled with text…

It’s only Monday night… I’m sure some more will sneak in there during the week.

Any CC?

Which one is better?

They are both the wrong size.

The bottom one just looks unreal. The blood is really cartoony which in this case is bad.

The top looks real but it lacks what makes a sig an amazing sig. It lacks that wow factor.

Neither say war to me either.
