    anything above 500 x 200 is big. Some people go over this but its usually people making their own sigs and using umpteen ign's... PDOG.... but yea, its good, better than my first.

    I think they're referring more to mine buddy.

    I'll see about making a smaller one.

    Both were a little large for my taste. I usually go for something around 400x120. +/- a few pix.

    Size is good, I'd love it way more if the guild's name was "Xen Onslaught" because I can't see a place the "of" fits.
    P.S. I think Xen Onslaught sounds stupid, but looks good for graphical aesthetics.

    huh?

    if your referring to the relative size.. there isnt much i can do about that alas. the stylized logo was taken from the featured guild page on the warhammer site.

    Visually it's pleasing.

    Technically it's lacking.

    Unless you made the logo.

    No depth... no artistic style. It seems all to plain. No special effects just some renders. Some crippling masks always help IMO. Maybe some curves and gradient maps. A clear light source or two. Just some thoughts.

    You made a background and slapped images and text on it.

    That should answer your question right there. >_>

    actually... i didnt make a background XD

    i stuck two images together, resized and cut until they fit the way i wanted them, then hid the join using the cut-out raven host logo, before slapping the XoO featured guild header over it. with alittle outline blending
