These are just some sigs I made and I would be happy to make one for you :D. Just ask!
By the way all of these are done in Adobe Photoshop CS3.

Thanks,

Well from what the topic makes me think you just started? If so they are pretty good considering.

The text could use like a 1-2 pixel blur to make it less pixelated. Also look into using filters and changing the opacity.

I do normally use opacity and I used it a bit on the first sig, the bit with the code. It just didn't show up too well. And thanks for the reply I will look into filters.

Thanks,

I think you could do better, but you are new so I'll give you some slack.

hm. i like the way you chose colors. they go together well. allow me a few suggestions.

:: dark backgrounds need light text. always. in the first one, IT demo is dark and hard to see. don't do that. don't have overlapping text unless it is meant to be unreadable. that becomes frustrating.

:: pick a focus point. our eyes love to wander when we look at things, but you want our undivided attention. in the second image, you have two bball players, but you only need us to see one. for the reflection portion, try not to skew as much and let the images touch. let the shadow be set to about 30% opacity or less. definitely no more than 40.

i hope this helps. if you have any questions, i love photoshop, so ask away.
