    Well then prehaps Xelhes, you'll just have to try harder. Your not going to get all the votes all the time, and besides the whole point of competing should be too have fun (considering there have never been any prizes), not just to get votes.

    Embrace the competition man, it's awesome, this has forced me to step up a little in my skills for next SOTW and I love it. I also hate it because it's getting so much harder to vote XD

    any who, I voted for Pryo. It was tough between fooligar, Zyta and Pryo but in the end I chose pyro because of the colour and groovey text and animation.

    Great work everyone though, competition starting to get tough ^_^

    Xehles, your work is good and I'm sure it takes a lot of skill to do what you do. But you also need to consider what the voters or general audience want. I voted for zyta in this one. The reason I rarely vote for yours is that they always look too busy.

    I think you look at the comments and try to gauge what other's want to see. I much prefer a simple and clean sig over a busy one any day. Skill is one thing, but to deliver what other's want to see is another.

    A motto I like in life is the K.I.S.S. principle. (Keep It Simple Stupid).

    So in other words, you stopped participating because of your jealousy and the fact that you're a sore loser?
    To stop trying is a sign of a loser mentality. Don't be too hard on yourself.

    Fooligar is just really good at making signatures (and probably other computerized art). My vote went to Pyro Psycho though. Even though the overall quality of the signature is not very high (The "oldschool" line is really unnecessary as well.) he makes up for it in ambition. You tried some very nice things pyro psycho and even though the execution is a bit lacking you still get my vote for trying.

    Fooligar, because of your obvious skills I'm scrutinizing you a bit more, don't take it the wrong way.

    yeah only about three entries actually did want i originally wanted to do.(you cant see it now because of the little event me Tsu had :P ), but i wanted retro use, not just reference.

    and dont feel to discouraged Xel, i win sotw on a very very rare basis, ex: last one i won was FreeStyle, i dont win ones that ask for what people really think ties in with the theme. but from my personal opinion, 80% of the time, Fooligar does deliver well themed sigs for SOTW, i applaud him for being a fresh face with a challenge to boot.

    BUT that is the real challenge, is too make a piece of art that really follows a theme or request to the letter. i try to work on that, but i tend to make them what i think is awesome rather than relevant

    It was between equinn and iluvmyloser.

    fooligar had an awesome sig as well, it had that Wow factor animation, but without the animation, it didn't speak to me as much as theirs. It is awesome, but fooligar's always are.

    iluvmyloser's just kept my coming back. I like the color, and the dimensional feel of it. Very nice.

    I know I still need work with mine, but I know what I like, and I really liked iluvmyloser's sig. Good luck!

    I voted for Zyta because I love Dolphins and the sig looks great! The colours really blended well and although the same colour was used the different shades really helped.

    Then it would have been either Equinns or iluvmyloser Sonic was the first game I ever played and still love to play. Plus they had a good use of colours that helped make the the renders stand out more.

    For me no offence Xehles but your sig looked too chaotic for my licking the only way I knew what game it was, was because of the text as it was a little hard to see the character/sprite that well
