    It looks good...so does your current sig. I'm not too sure I like the cream 'stroke' around her though. Perhaps it could be less opaque to make the image blend in more.

    BTW..what anime is she from?

    The thing is, I have no idea ^^'
    I just found her on Photobucket while looking for a samurai girl.

    The background is quite nice and the flow's fine, but the stroke/shape behind the focal looks out of place. Also, the focal's colours seem like they've been overly darkened.

    A small point but, you shouldn't reduce your focal too much or else it can get overwhelmed by the background. As a general rule the stock/render in a 400x100 sig should be sized so that the shoulders (or upper torso) and most of the head fits in, and for 400x150+ you should try to resize the render/stock so that the waist to the head fits in.
    Although there are exceptions, such as when the stock/render has an extended sword arm or something else that you want to focus on.

    I like the background. I don't like the girl and the font is way to simple :'(

    It's big. I can see though that you have great creativity. Keep working.

    I like it Erynism, don't dwell on it to much, all that matters is if you like it or not.

    Wise words. I agree. As long as you like it since it is for you.

    Now if it was a request maybe, but at the same time you shouldn't dwell either...because your using your own time to finish the request.
    Credits to a friend, a legend and comrade, thank you Ravona!

    Actually I made it for practice. I have only been using Photoshop for 10 days or so and I am still trying out what I can do with it and figuring out what I want to do with it.
    But thank you for the advice, everyone, I will try to follow it.

    Dude its too big in height, and the render isn't even blended in. There really isn't any focal point on the signature.
