thanks, but I am nowhere as good as Nexx, Vince Adi, Clover, VLS.
But It is good, that I am finally getting recognition from my fellow people who I have made sigs for. You just made my day :D

Sometimes It really bothers me when people fail to realise that and they get demanding or refuse a (FREE!) sig from somebody because they don't think they're a good enough sigmaker.
Man VL, I'm just gonna co-sign on this entire statement.
Thanks for pointing all of this out!
Not that I don't appreciate the kind comments, but everyone who takes the time to do free artwork for someone else on this forum or any other forum deserves props and respect whether they're just beginning or have been using Photoshop since birth.

I've always said, "I know my stuff ain't gonna be everybody's cup-o-tea, but it's not about that."
That said, am I the "best sig maker?" The answer is an emphatic "no".
I hope I don't offend any other sig makers out there by saying this, but "there is no such thing as the best sig maker!"

Just as a comparison: You can't say that Picasso was a better artist than Dali. I may like Dali's work more than Picasso, but it's all just preference.
If you're a sig maker "have fun doing it!"
If you're requesting a sig, be thankful to the person who's taking the time to do it for you, no matter how experienced they may be.

Definately agree with taht and your sigs are impressive, I'm just a bigger fan of static sigs which is why I think that AD, Snuff and CG are my favorites.

That LT sig is one of my favorites too. I really like snuffs work, it's too bad he doesn't make sigs too often though.

ill go ahead and put my 2 cents in, he makes amazing animation, but for a non-animated sig, i love the style Adi uses, it looks great, i also think that CF and clover are two of the best, and of course you cant forget about D-Unit.

Obviously, with all the names thrown around in this thread, there are many good sig makers, but don't forget scar989. He has made many great sigs.

I agree with you guys, there is no best sigmaker. If there was though, I wouldn't be anywhere near the middle or top. :)

There are a lot of good sig makers on this site. It is cool that people take the time to take requests and make these graphics for others. I enjoy the sig Snuff made for me as well as the work of all the other sig guys.

I'm not too much of a sig fan, I usually get bored of other peoples, and don't really notice them. I like quotes better . . .

Yeah, I dont know if many realize that the sig makers take their own time to make others sigs. Nut for sig makers, it is now getting to where their are a bunch of people asking for a sig, but they never are on to represent it.

I liked most the people I made sigs for, they were very thankful. To me, when someone goes "It is amazing" or "I love it", that makes me feel good. That is partly why I make sigs for others, that and I like making them

Nexx's sigs are good but they are all the same style and tend to look all the same.

Clovers and Adi's are my favorites of the people who currently make sigs.
