my opinion is that u need to find a better pick of eli hes not big enough to go with peytons... also spruce up the text maybe a different placement or drop shadow... also add a border

dude did you see the where he said he was just learning to make graphics?? i have been to a lot of other boards where the members tear apart each others work and i hate it, especially when guys are just starting out. the least you could do if you dont like it is give some pointers rather than just making a comment like that. :-t

I thought this was a joke when I first read it... I kept waiting for some kind of follow up like it was an inside joke or something...

The only way that you could keep Eli that small is if you incorporate big brother an dsmall brother... I think that you should try sprucing up your background. a thing that made my backgrounds better was grunge brushes that you can download on line... you should try that.

Well, I am not a graphic artist but I did stay at a Holiday Inn Express once...

I think it could be workable but it's a bit too plain as it is right now - too much blue and not enough of something else to offset it... To be honest it looks to me like my old TV that I used to play SuperNintendo on - the RGB setting was screwed so we had no yellow and it made every game a one-color deal...

I think step one is to add a border (seems to be the prevalent idea around here when tweaking someone's sig to suggest a border) and step 2 is to change the background - maybe it doesn't need to be a different color altogether but it should at least be a different BLUE from the rest of the pic...

Hope that was helpful...

Thanks guys...

There actually is a border there... that's probably the first rule I learned when making sigs... but I guess it's not a very good color for these forums (white).... I have to change it.

Also, I'm going to have to find a bigger pic of Eli and then maybe add the team logo's behind them maybe??? Would that be a good idea just to give the sig some life... maybe fade the logo's a bit.

How do I get them to look transparent? I've been all over my Paint Shop Pro 8 and can't find that tool... The closest I can find is my clone brush.

Thanks for the help everyone... I'll try to work on it some more later today.
