Hi, me again! 

 Anyway, as you can tell my signature is a bit.. loppy xD. I was wondering if any of you could give me some tips on making it look better and more entertaining :3.

 Thanks again.

A good signature can be whatever you want it to be. Though I know in the past people usually like it for signatures to be short and sweet instead of long and filled with pictures and gifs. Speaking of that, it is worth it to credit stuff that is not made by you or taken from google (however actually click the link google images gives you to find the original maker) so people don't get hissy! Hope this helps! 

EDIT: yes I know my sig is filled with Star Wars femminst propaganda 

don't judge me

Symmetry Helps

I think the best way to go about having a good signature depends on what content you want your signature to have. But one general rule is that signatures seems to look the most organized if there's visual symmetry. This can often be accomplished by centering or in other methods like having two identical things on either side. Also, short signatures are generally preferred to long ones because they're easier to peruse and people prefer pictures and short phrases and sentences rather than paragraphs because they're easier to glance at, but again, that depends on what you want to share in your signature. (For example, you'll obviously want to include a paragraph if you're doing a character profile in your sig, or you might have thread or character links you want share that results in some scrolling.)

 

Main thing is that the signature is pleasing to your eye and conveys what you want it to convey.

Oh that Thunder stole the subject..

Okay.. So I remade my signature.  I decided to go for a short and sweet look. It isn't TOTALLY finished.

What do you all think?
