I like this theme. I find space to be extremely interesting. So, I guess I'll enter this one and see how it goes. :)

I don't like the theme, but seeing as it is my 3rd sig ever....

also on the ripping thing, it doesn't mean you have to make your own renders right? it just means that you have to put the sig together yourself.

Yes, you do not have to cut your own render. Just don't find a sig related to the topic made by someone else and submit it as your own.

I thought so, just wanted to make sure. Wouldn't want the credit for something that wasn't my own work anyway.

thanks for clearing that up for me.

You just had to send it with the title "Competition" so he knows...other than that I don't think so...

i dont meant the mail. or were we suppose to make the pic say that too? and if everybody hands in there pics before the week is up to we still have to wait or will they go around and put the poll out?

You don't have to write anything on the image itself, I meant the mail that you send to Ac04...I think the polls will be put up in a week's time because you can never know if everyone has sent their entries. Because you might have someone enter at the very last minute and it's unfair to put up polls before the allocated time..

I never needed to work on a piece for a whole week...mine take about 30-40 minutes...sometimes it can take up to 2 hours but that's very rare...to each their own i guess...

My works take about that time as well. But if its a competition I am going to work on mine over time, bits and pieces. it helps a lot considering every new time you look at it, you will spot the flaws you made the day before, and fix them.

I just do the best I can in one sitting because I will lose the inspiration and the direction I was going with the piece in the first place...The way I see it, if you take too much time completing a piece, especially over a few days it becomes a bit choppy and messy...that's the way it goes for me, if it works better for you then that's cool :)
