    I am excited to post the entries for the May signature contest. This is the first contest in years and having the full ten entries was more than expected. Thank you to everyone who submitted their work! The theme was Comics and artists were allowed to use anything from a comic book/movie and incorporate it into their signature. Please vote for the signature you like the best. Signatures per rules will remain anonymous as far as the artist until after where the top artist will be recognized as the winner. Feel free to discuss the signatures, who got your vote and why. Please do not flame or discourage any artists work. Good luck.

    Voted for #10 myself. Something about it just pulled me in. Was a tough call between it and #7 for me but since I did a lot of feedback on #7 during the development process I decided to go with #10 in the light of trying to avoid bias.

    As for why #10 in a little more detail. It's simple, yet there is no wasted space. The color pallet works amazingly well together with only pale versions being present. It's not too showy and just gets right to the point.

    I like 9, but the focal point is rather unclear.

    I also like 3, however the focal point gets clouded due to the text boxes. I like how the two text boxes balance the focal point though, it's a nice strategy but I think it would have worked better in the two other corners.

    I had a tough time between 3 and 9. 9 was well executed and themed. 3 ended up with my vote. I thought it showed great depth, i enjoyed the filter effects and it looked like a panel straight from the comics. I agree the text boxes could have been manipulated differently but it was still effective.

    I was torn between between 5 and 6. All of these for the first contest in more than 2 years it seems have been done very well.

    Some very impressive sigs, Honestly a fan for all of them but in terms of personal preference number 5 was my favourite.

    Due to the constant battering to me and the constant nagging. I'm withdrawing from this competition. It isn't worth the constant mails and battering posts from fellow players on my work of legitimacy or being accused of cheating. It is pathetic that people have 5 accounts all claiming it is me. The same person who hacked my profile and upped the profile views.

    So to me it isn't worth busting my butt to make a signature i truly enjoy and to give back to the TW community at this time. With this i withdraw from this competition.

    Sorry to hear that, Ash. I really did like you Sig. If you stay you'll have a great shot at winning this whole thing. Don't let a bunch of trolls beat you.

    Thank you all for your input - Please keep all discussion on the work. This is not a thread for all of you playing CSI.

    Sad to see you're pulling it out. It really was a very nice piece Ash. I'll refrain from voting again due to this. I already casted my vote, whether it's in the competition or not.

    I voted for 6 -- only because the graphic for 7 wasn't showing up for me.

    Congrats all! Probably should change my current forum sig now then as it's a bit poor. Thanks for the votes those who voted for mine.
