It’s time to get me a proper signature, so hopefully someone out there will help me out.

I don’t have many requirements, but I would prefer a fairly dark style and possibly gritty as well. Whether my avatar and/or a ship should be present I’ll let you decide, but if there’s a ship, it’s important that it’s AmarrSmile


Now secondly I also need an image to accompany a topic in the recruitment forum for my corporation.

In case you’re too lazy to look in the forum Wink This is the size restrictions:
- 700 pixel maximum height
- 500 pixel maximum width
- 75kb maximum file size
- 100 pixels/inch resolution

It should be inspiring, but except that I have nothing particular in mind. Making and adding a logo and slogan is encouraged, but in no way required.

The winner of each of these 2 competitions will receive 100 million and if I decide to pick more these will be rewarded with 50 million.

The competition will end the 9th April, but may delayed if I find it necessary.

Thanks for all entries.

Yeah I know, but it's not easy to give any more information ugh

I can only encourage people to try some different things, but I have always prefered fairly dark and sinister sigs Twisted Evil

It's also difficult to make a "shot into the blue sig" then realize the guy wanted something completely different and you wasted two hours ;)

You know, a good point to start would be...what do you enjoy most in eve? what is your corporations business? do you like a clean style or rough and rugged, a certain theme inside "gritty and dark" like...gothic, ruined landscapes, mass murder blood spill, or just dark space pictures, etc. etc. etc.

every tiny hint can kick off a direction to start with. can't start a fire without a spark stuff =) IF you still insist on being lazy :P then I'll bring in a first draft and hope to get some feedback =)

Ive only had chance to come up with a sig..... not a big fan of pictures of ships of avatars, and you didn't seem too bothered, so I've gone for something dark, yet hopefully fitting with the name BlueFix.... your name just made me think of storms.

What I do: Manufacturing and trading although I also love pvp when given the chance. R&D and corp management is also a part of what I do.

The corp: Emphasize personal freedom, which means any profession is allowed from mining to ore theft and piracy.

The reason I didn't write it before is that it's pretty widespread Smile

What I personally like have been somewhat mentioned. But if I should expand on it ruined landscapes often make good pictures and so can mass murder, blood spills and such things as long as it doesn't look to cartoonish or low resolution-like. Dark space pictures would probably be too boring for me. A clean style or a rough look both work for me when done good.

If I should comment on the current ones:

Dominique's - I prefer the second one, as the first look to much as something from a cheap horrormovieWink The lightning in the first one works pretty good though.

Trovarion's - I really like the first one and the red works well. The second remind me too much of some fps games from the 90's Smile

Regarding the sigs I like the second one. I prefer most colors over grey, which is why I'd chose that one over the first.

Hopefully that helps out. I can at the very least say the current submissions have been within the area I was looking for.

Here's my entry, i focused on a clean style and rough look mainly, around a dark theme.

Please visit your user settings to re-enable images.


Info :

I didn't work on a corp banner yet since i got in late. but if you like the style of the sig and can definitly work on a banner in the same idea.

Hope you enjoy !

I got bored, and decided to make a matching sig as well.

Please visit your user settings to re-enable images.

And yeah I added the best looking Amaar ship there is (the rest is crap compared to gallente ship) Razz

Possible to remove the annoying blurring text, but feel it fits to your corp name Razz
Also easy to add more text, pictures etc, if needed.

I like the style, so you should make a corp banner as well Smile

I'm currently sick anyway, so I wouldn't mind postponing this competition 24 hours from now, so I have a clear mind when picking the winners.
