Kinda random and odd, but I find it pretty humorous. 7/10

Very nice spriting, and very neatly placed, but that's all there is to be said about it.

It's cool and all, but to me, the text on the picture is a bit messy. It just doesn't blend well :/ Not a fan of the CSS bars on the top and bottom either. But overall, the image itself is pretty cool.

I love minimalistic graphics in signatures, and the overlaid text is very well-suited. I'm totes okay with that.

So much information through just colour and font size, it's fun, yet realistic, and sure as heck gets my attention xD

Nice and simple. But you have to do something about the link... It looks a bit odd and breaks your signature a bit.

Personally one of the best sigs out there, especially with the text and colour of the last words of the phrases. Although it looks a tad too big, but ohwell.

Nice filter, the motives are fine too, you overloaded a bit with the cropped motives though, but nice overall.

The new MLP bothers me no end. How do they remake a 20 year old cartoon with /worse/ animation?!

Still, it's a nice signature.

7/10 A boring signature on it's own, but the font and color scheme goes well together.

Yes, I drew my sig pic

Try to get rid of the scrollbar and the unused colourtag. The text placement itself is not that entertaining either. But I'll admit that the picture has a certain charm, extra points for making it yourself.

It's really cute picture, actually, and I think it goes nicely with the avatar. Plus, nobody can really be hating on Tekken now, can they?

It's simple, and the color is easy-going over the white background(That I am using).

Nice quote, 7/10.

Thanks! By the way, it's animated...

The effect makes the text under the image to seem curved! It looks nice and the colors go well with each other, and the avatar.

It's just a gif
the gif is low quality
the gif is very jerky and short
there is unnecessary black space along the right and bottom.

Well, uh, where to start? First off, all the images are in really poor quality, and the ones that are tiny or had been smooshed to fit look even worse. The lighting also varies per image, and while this sometimes looks fine on tags/other signatures, it does not here. To top it off, the pink text is also in really poor quality, and I'm guessing the whole thing was made on MS Paint, which I've found automatically lowers the quality if saved as anything but a PNG. The only thing that turned out decently, in my opinion, is the text in the upper right-hand corner, but it's small enough so that I can't be completely sure.

So! Here's some advice if you want to use multiple images in a signature: Make them into 100 x 100 or larger square icons, kind of like my signature. Also make sure not to upload images directly onto PC (unless they're being uploaded into an album), as that also detracts the quality. Sites like Tinypic or Imgur will allow you to upload images without having to make an account. And if you do not want low quality images, use Ctrl + Printscreen or Command + Control + Shift + 3 if you're on a Mac to copy your desktop, then resize and crop and save the image as a PNG. Alternatively, download a free image manipulator such as Gimp (or pirate PS or w/e) and use that instead. As for any text you may want, CSS is always a good option and you can learn how to use CSS on here via the CSS Discussion Thread over in the Web Master's Discussion (or w/e it's called) in the Life, the Universe, and Everything section.

9/10 Icon sigs are lovely. The music is a nice touch. Font colors are nice and from the icons. I'm not quite liking the font shadows, though. They'll grow on me eventually.
