Ya know, Scooter, you could have voted to help things along a bit :lol:

Anyway, I'll give it a vote.

Mike: Your sig is very clean and simple, but kinda sci-fi. Very cool.

Beta: I really like the bokeh and the curvy lines, buit your text fades into the background too much.

 

My vote is for Mike, making the score now: Mike- 2, Beta- 1

Scooter already has voted ;)

 

Both are very nicely crafted.

However my vote goes to Mike, as his has a solid compact aspect (text-color -"electric flame") to clearly get  his message/name across.

 

Beta0 your background effects are almost ethereal, very nice.  The text color however, gets lost into the background, losing its value as a signature. Though I do like the font.

 

 

MikeRobe           1 

 

Beta0                  0

oh contraire mon ami  (aren't I just too continental?) I did cast my vote for this pair. a041677f.gifYepee!  

So in following the rules (well mostly, at least the ones, I like) I am prohibited from casting another vote.  So I am "frozen out" cube-glace_zps1911dc7c.gif so's to speak

 

But THANK YOU for your vote .......

Totally forgot to maketh a vote when I last dropped by. 

 

Beta - The colours are really pleasing on the eye, but I think the text gets lost in certain parts of the background, still a nice work though.

MikeRobe - I do like the green and black combination and the cool pattern / dots you have in different shades of green clinches the deal for me and you get my vote :)

 

I really do hate to make a choice sometimes.

 

So if I am following the scores right. It is: 

MikeRobe - 3

Beta(0) - 1

 

Making MikeRobe the winner in this round.

 

And....As Scooter may say:

 

Next!

AhHHH. Its nice to be back. Its been a while. 

 

Scooter: love you r simplicity, however I think your current sig is even better.  The color blending and your blur is top notch.

Nitenurse: I'm a fan of yours but this one didn't do it for me. maybe it's just the style im not fond of ( looks like a rappers pendant on a chain lol) however I see no real issues

With that being said this was a difficult choice. Both were great but it came down to personal preference. and for that I vote for scooter.

 

Scooter:1

Nitenurse:0

Scooter : I like the blended colors and the abstract, nice job on those aspects. However, maybe it's just a tad too blurry for me, and I think a different font would have added a better touch. It's still a very cool siggy though, and both the colors and the abstract look nice together.

 

Nitenurse : I really like the glassy textured background of your signature. I also think the font you used is cool. However, the filling you used for your text, yes it is neat, but at the same time something about it isn't really appealing to me. I guess I'm confused on how I'm to interpret your text's filling. Even if it is a type of abstract, I'm just not really sure what to make of it. Some abstracts are eye catchers for me, while others kind of go over my head. All together I think your siggy is tiny bit shiny, a little cool, and neat. That's not a bad combo, nice work. :)

 

Great job both of you! And thank you for sharing your signatures. I am happy to see people participating in things like this as it makes the forums more fun. <3

 

Now, drum rollllll please! Here is my vote! Dun, dundun!

 

Scooter! Chalk one up for Him! 1

 

It was a hard choice, but for once, even though I love shiny things, simplicity gets my vote this time.

 

Scooter : 2

Nitenurse : 0

Scooter, nice job. Very simple, and the positioning and 'shattered' effect of the black lines hits me. :abigthumbsupforyou:

 

Nitenurse, also a nice job. It looks really industrial to me, and the text has a very unique texture. However, I feel as if the whole image was 'too' complex. Maybe the text could have done with a bit less complexity. Anyway, an overall good job! :alsoabigthumbsupforyou:

 

Tis tough to decide on a winner here, but my vote goes to

Scooter :trophy:

 

That's:

 

Scooter-3

Nitenurse-0  (sorry... you can have a beer though... :beer: )

 

It's always hard to choose between things like this.

 

Scooter wins, and in tribute...

 

NEXT!

I am truly and most humbly grateful for all you responses.  To have a success, while being challenged by such a major talent as nitenurse,   is most surprising to me.

Thank You .

RFX  well crafted design. The background is "design-y" enough to carry its self, but with it being an illustration of something, gives it a plus. The textover is both inspiring (content) and legible.  As to  the legibility point, I am not so much of a fan of black outlying, in this case.  I feel you could have chosen another dark color within the color pallet of the whole signature. As it is, the black is only in the outline and becomes a bit of a discordant color over powering the rest

That said I do like the submission.

 

Cc4fuzzHuggles ,  WOW!  the psychedelic 60's are BACK!! -Right On -man! b8fc0fe0.gif  This is so wild, but well constrained by your solid borders.  The text reads easily and cleanly and keeps the wild colorfulness as a vibrant background. As do the two curved lines helping control the effect. Well Done.

Both are very nice for different reasons.
 
RFX - I really do like the chrome / shiny text you have and the race track (?) background is really well made with some nice detail / depth. Very clean and impressive.  
 
Cc4FuzzyHuggles - The background is really nice and funky, the colours are well chosen, I think the colour of the font  let's it down, it would have looked really cool if it was vivid yellow (or your trade mark shiny / glossy things)
 
To score - I award 1 point to RFX and 0 to Cc4fuzzyHuggles (even though it is a nice signature) 
 
Updated score is now -
 
RFX - 1
Cc4FuzzyHuggles - 1

RFX: I really like how it pretty much shows the progress of the drawing being "drawn" as well as the depth and detail put into it!

 

Cc4FuzzyHuggles: Really nice effects put into this one. Like how everything just goes together even with all of the different colors and stuff. I'd really like to know how you did some of the things you did in it to maybe adopt some in my art or something.

 

This is a really hard choice, but here it goes.

 

RFX - 2

Cc4FuzzyHuggles - 1
