Here is my most recent try...My photoshop isn't working correctly and it was really hard to get the blending options on both the first and last names to match very well...I think I'm gonna have to reinstall...What do you guys think of this attempt?

I really like your lighting as well as the background, but i'm not sure i'm a fan of the text... I would mess around with it a little more.

Yeah, its a nice try on the text, but I am not sure that it went quite right. :-/

In general somewhat simple text tends to be better IMO.

Oh and always have at least one border on top of the render. Makes it look a lot better. ;-D

i dont know...the idea with the text i think was a good one because it goes with the theme of the sig, and your point comes across with the color and BG..so i think it works. maybe you could leave the icicles (sp? :-b ) of the "ice cold" text and move it down on top of his name so its almost like one piece, that way it isnt as overpowering in the sig. the crystals need a little touching up, but you are already far ahead of where i was when i started out, so nice job dude. this is your best BG and best lighting so far. i agree with joel about the border. we all used to make sigs with the render over the border and it was horrible. gotta leave the border on top ;-D

hmmmm....maybe not :-b

try "arial black" font on the "ice cold" text. when i made the suggestion, i didnt notice that the font you used on his name wasnt uniform across the top. that makes my suggestion not work as well because you cant really center it. :-b !+)

i still think it may come out better than the first draft because the text wont be so far spread out, but i could be wrong ;-) :-D

Yeah but me doing a uniform change would look like picasso painting the mona lisa...Just not right...I haven't seen him in a Bucs uniform yet and wouldnt know where to find a sig worthy pic... So I went with one I thought would look good.
