Hey I made this for you because I was bored and had nothing to do. Tell me what you think, if you need any edit or text color change tell me.
First one, I like this more but I think the font is kinda messed up so if you choose then we can edit it out later :)

Offtopic: I have tried to post here from another account NeXy but my posts didn't appear. Why can't I post from it? Is it because it's too fresh? I had to go the trouble of finding my old account in order to post in this event xD.

Take it easy man. Why you reply like that? Let him come and show us his signatures?
I didn't get ''gassed up'' because people liked the signatures that I made.. I'm just doing this for fun, trust me I don't even need the prize if I be in top 3.

It's nice to see what people can, also it's nice to show people what you can.. Everyone is doing this for fun, so stop saying he is better than anyone else. He is 10x better than me or others? Okay, let him come here and show us what he can do.

You are his dog right?

I have made a friendly contest to know the community, met with people in forums & ingame and make everyone compete in a fun event.
There are some professional photoshop works, and some paint ones.

I enjoyed quite a lot checking every single design, some of them amazed me some of them made me laugh so much.
Every single signature here is unique, spesifically created for this event and i appreciate all the effort.

Once again thank you all for participating and all the time you put in.

Lets please keep the peace and try to have some fun.

Offtopic: I have tried to post here from another account NeXy but my posts didn't appear. Why can't I post from it? Is it because it's too fresh? I had to go the trouble of finding my old account in order to post in this event xD.

And one more entry with the render provided by the artist GeDoX because I really liked the render. Hope it isn't any problem with that.

I can teach you how to make some cool looking sigs in just 5 days with just covering the basics. You will be able to do some clean and cool looking stuff without too much effort. If you really wanna learn leave me a PM ;).

Wow... this kinda pisses me off. To know that I've been working for about 2 hours on each signature and win a single prize while others probably spent like 10 minutes(#3) and got something. Don't mean to be rude or anything but really this

http://imageshack.us/a/img266/1969/asiana.png
(57 layers and it took one hour in adobe illustrator just to create some of the vectors)
compared to this:

http://i45.tinypic.com/mmyd6w.png
(some brushes, a half the signature text and I guess some c4ds left on linear or color dodge)

I've asked my GFX community what do they think and they said that this whole event was a joke. It was not about signatures, it was about communities favorites. Gedox and Bellatrix are like the only 2 artists around here so yeah, it was obvious they would win. Excuse me for my attitude but this is just unfair and rude. Not to mention that Bellatrix's signature didn't even correspond to the requirments:

- Design sizes must be 600*250, 200 Kb, only JPG, GIF or PNG formats will be accepted.

so again this just shows how unfair this whole thing was.

Have a good day and I'm done with it.

Well the font is, but too good I'm not an idiot, I have the PSD saved so if she want any changes, she can tell me.

EDIT: I just did this for fun, I don't really care about the prize or anything but to be honest I wanted to be in top 3.

Lose? There was no winning chances to begin with. This was won by the famous people from the beginning. How could I compete with the forum's STARS? It ain't about GFXing skill. It's about who you are around here. I mean just look at number 3 and tell me how could that children thing win?" I ain't talking about myself only, but look around here and about 90% of the stuff is better than that epic bullshit. I can do that in 2 minutes without sweat but instead I decided to put a lot of effort, but hey, no one knows me, I'm no one around here. Except that time when my sigshop was full of requests and made about 30 signatures but that was a long time ago. Big QQer I know, but I have a good reasoning.

You don't want the prize? Prove it by giving it to me. I can't even grind cause I can't afford a god dam PP. Is this game all about buying mokens to sell SN? I can't find any good way of getting myself some money...

Lol. I'm new here and I could see who's the communities favorites from the start. It's pretty obvious to be honest and you must be pretty blind not to notice. I guess they are just trying to win the favorites in order to win the community. This was a pretty clever move if you ask me. Anyway, not going to fall again for events like this. As I said, I got over it and I should have known from the beginning.

I am not going to say no since I'm a very poor f@g in this game so I'm just going to say thank you. My ingame name is EuBa and Im a dragon just so you can recognize me. I'll be in BDP in a few minutes and I will wait you there. Thanks and sorry if you are mad. I have nothing against you and actually you deserved your place.

The only one I don't think it's worth it's place is number 3. That isn't a signature, that isn't skill.

Tbh your siggy doesnt make any sense, maybe she isnt asian (I didnt see her mentioning that anywhere). Furthermore there is nothing related to 12sky in your siggy. Atleast #3 is funny, and has a cat in it (which she did mention she liked), and its clear which is quite important. I actually remembered #3 best of all the siggy´s I´ve seen in this thread, and that says something.

Furthermore it doesnt matter how much time you put into it, or how many layers it has. It is about what appeals most, and apparently yours didnt.

I do understand your frustration, i know you have put a lot of time and effort on your designs and i really appreciate all your hard work.
All i wanted was a design that i like. I never claimed that i will reward the person with best design skills, i never claimed that if you spent 5 hours on a design you will get a prize.
We just choosed 3 designs i liked the most. Have you ever considered that our tastes on designs might be completly different.
Some people might like simple things. You may hate the things i really like, not everyone feels or thinks the same.

Also for you information I honestly don't know the players in-game, nor in forums. That was one of the reason i have made this event, to know about players.
I dont really know who is popular here, who is loved the most, who is hated, who is the quite guy, who is the attention seeker.
We arent reading forums 24/7 since we have so much to do.

I am saying as an honest human beign that there is no fix on the results nor any special sympathy to the winners.

I dont really need to explain myself why we decided this way but i am going to.
I want to make you feel comfortable, beacuse i dont want you to think that we cheated somehow or we are supporting some certain players. I dont want you to think less of me. Nevermind as a Gm, just as a person, as your fellow game friend.

Here are the reasons why i chosed the top 3;

1st one: Just amazed me! I really like the colours he used, and the goth image was really fitting me perfectly. Simply awesome.
2nd one: I like the colours that he used. Black and red are my favourite colours, also i really like the font he used.
3rd one: Made me laugh for a long time. He also read my "introduction" post that i explain about myself with few words. Cats and scuba diving were the things i mentioned that i really like. So he read me really well and he used both of things i like in his design.

I want to mention one more thing about how we decided;

I download all the designs to a file named "Signature Contest 12-18 Oct" on the computer desktop, and we gone through all the signatures one by one, talked about them and explained to eachother why we liked / why we didnt like.

We did not know which design belongs to who while we are nominating the winners.

Hope this post will give you peace of mind, and i am really sorry if i offended you somehow.

Thanks to all participants for their time and effort once more.

HolyTiger2 i'm speaking from my own personal opinion here and can relate to your frustrations but you need to see the bigger picture.

Firstly skill has nothing to do with this contest. All the entries (even the paint ones which made me laugh) had their own unique style, humour and appeal. This contest was to cater to the tastes of one particular person, who in this case was Astarte and mentioned she enjoys scuba diving and cats in her introduction to the community. Now imagine the connection she would have to picture 3 and understand why it was a favourite of hers ^^

Secondly i actually voted for your picture, and this isnt because i 'want to win' you or anybody else over, i actually love asian culture and if you could understand by my name which is taken from an asian anime you could understand why yours would appeal to me more than Astarte.

Thirdly there was no bias in regards of the rules or community. the second place picture stated that it could be edited and with this is mind we made our vote based on what could be tweaked to meet the requirements.

Your entries were fantastic, you should feel proud that the community loved it as much as i did but in this particular event it didnt have an appeal to her, not because of skill but because of what was on display.

I would love for you to make me a signature for example, but thats for another time another day....

I actually am very sorry that I went somehow berserk and at a second thought I regretted saying such things. I understand that it was your personal decision and I hope you won't have any grudge against me. I was a little upset because I never lost at signature events and it just came as a shock... but the deal is that where I participated it was based on skill, while here it is based on personal preferences, which I didn't take into account. I know that I acted like an a$$hole and I want to say I'm sorry to everyone. Again, really sorry... I'm ashamed of myself...

Edit: I'm HolyTiger2 just that this is the account related to my ingame from which I couldn't post a few days ago.

Not that it matters but I actually made a signature related to the 12sky2 just in case
