Kouhai:
 
(+) 
You just make the most amazing sigs! I love the way you did the text and the font you used, the colors just go so well together and it so blended it looks like official artwork.

(-)
 I didn't make something that looked this awesome.
 
------------------------------
Tsukumo Yuma:
 
(+)
 I liked the way you shaped your sig, the coloring is nice and well are the renders you used and I really like the slight popout with the gun and whatnot.

(-)
I think a slight blur on the background would have been nice. (but thats just me, I like blurring everything)
 
------------------------------
Limitless:
 
(+)You just keep getting better!
When I think of I:SS I always think of really colorful stuff, but you really made this two-tone work really well in your favor, also liking how you used the I:SS logo.

(-)
It feels a little empty is some places, maybe adding something where the big spot of black is would have helped.
-------------------------------
Runner Up
-------------------------------
 
Athena:
I like that you matched the bg color with the render, but it just looks like render and bg, nothing is really molding the two together.
Also liking that you used the MK logo, but the placing is off IMO

1. Eve
(+)It's claptrap (+)Feels scenic (+)Great eye for lighting (+)Boss background (+)I mean, it's claptrap
(-)I think text is too far off focal, so you can only choose one to focus on at a time
/ I'm not sure though, still don't understand text placement very well /

2. Limitless
(+)great eye for lighting again (+)cool smudge/blur work (+)awesome bg
(-)not a lot of depth :c

Athena - The simplicity of this signature really works out.


Tsukumo - Marginally better than kouhai's it was close :), but


Kouhai - both were a bit cluttered for my tastes.

Kouhai - awesome color merging, it was like broken glass, and each shard shows another world

Limitless - good, but it felt empty in some spots

ParasiteEve - kind of took me a while to figure out what I was looking at, the render and backround blended together sort of, but a robot in what looks like the red light district is amusing
