yeah a couple of years ago i took like a 6 month break and when i got back into it i forgot all the keyboard shortcuts and how to do basically everything. comes back fast at least :-b

overall nice sig, though you probably know id say its too dark :-D :-b

the only thing i might try is switching your border from white to yellow...since the theme of the sig is based of blacks and yellows. might add a tad of extra color but at the same time keep it dark. it might look like dog-poo....but id see how it looks :-b :-D

I like the dark feeling as long as you do something to bring out his face. Right now the wings in his shoulders look like the focal point. I would try to lighten up the face just a touch. Other than that I like it. ;-D

I started messing with it and came up with this...

Every time I tried to put a yellow border on it of any sort it got way to big and I couldn't get it under Cafe limits without it looking like mud. :-?

I do think it looks better that the original though.

I never thought I would say it, but I actually like the outer glow on the render. Not usually a fan of those. :-b

Yeah I know. I increased the size of the glow quite a bit and then reduced the opacity quite a bit as well, I just wanted to try to get the render to pop from the background a bit more. :-?
