I was thinking about starting a thread, "Your BLF Signature"

...but most people's signatures are self-explanatory.   Silly

(everyone loves big image signatures)   Evil

 

Old sig:

sig_1938x576_070

 

New sig:

sig_1300x400_090

 

I think the new sig looks a lot better.  What do you think?

A refresh is nice.
I miss the dramatic red dress pic (middle, old sig) but it seems your going for all new.

Did you want honest thoughts?
Skin tone on the ‘eyes’ looks better to me in the old sig. The higher pink/red makes it look more real and then by extension the eyes are more effective to me. You might want the less ‘natural’ look tho since she is enhanced.
In the new sig, the pinkish background pic (4th from left) throws off the balance to me. Something darker would bring more balance / symmetry. Would be more pleasing to my eye.

This! And the same thing applies also to bottom row left & right images. Symmetry rules! Smile

The new image is also 23% more lightweight, which is good!

That was a nice dress, but out with the old and in with the new!

Even though her old skin color looked nicer, it was actually due to poor image compression.  Her new facial hue should now be identical to the movie.

It might not look like it, but I think the background is white.  (Like it matters.   Silly )

I didn't even think about color symmetry.  Thanks for the input!   8)

I can't really imagine a movie so lousy that I wouldn't want to watch it just to see Milla Jovovich.

I've been asked about my avatar.  It's a picture of a wooden framed motorcycle.  I do ride, but it's not my bike.  I found the picture on the internet. I doubt it is a truly functional bike. I tried to find the owner of the bike, but searches got me no where. The pictures is in several places on the internet. So I figured it was safe to use as an avatar. It just looks like something I would build if I could get away with it. It resonates with my rough around the edges DIY tendencies.

The first two Resident Evil films are my favourite, Fifth Element is fun sci-fi, and Zoolander is really funny.

The fifth element is a great sci-fi movie, the opera singer sets the hairs on the back of my neck going every time.
The fifth elephant is a great sci-fi book by Terry Pratchett.
The avatar I use an image of Vlad the impaler – get the point.

Simple, three questions, why did you choose your current avatar?
What is your avatar?
Are you planning on changing your avatar?

1: – It’s appropriate for a flashlight forum.

2: – It’s a Surefire Hellfighter with one of many cables and a Surefire Hellfighter hard case (one of three). I also have an original SF ‘Hellfire’ case. ‘Hellfire’ was the original name for the light.

3: – Maybe. I have two Hellfighters with all accessories. Might show both facing each other while powered up. Need to play with that idea a little and see what it might look like before I make up my mind.

Mine is the one I have always had on Internet. I chose Fritz the Cat because I am a great Robert Crumb fan and because I was alone and he always did well with women. It brought me luck, and I have been for thirteen years with a woman I met on a chat program called The Palace.

I started using mine on CPF back in late 2007. It came from the Family Guy episode where Brian (the dog) shares an apartment with his girlfriend Jillian.

Robert Crumb, You’d recognize this then……

And Fritz the Cat was a good cartoon!

I used to buy all the comics at one time, Fat Freddy’s Cat was a favourite.

So I tweaked my signature... quite a bit.   8)


Old signature, from yesterday:

sig_1300x400_090

 

New signature:

sig02_1300x400_090


Alice's red dress makes a much-needed return.

About half of the pics in the new signature are, well, new.

Also, I tried to improved the color symmetry.   Wink

 

What do you think?

Yes I recognize the drawing. I think I have it somewhere. He said he was attracted to his drawings of women.
In one strip Fat Freddy’s cat said “All my friends are out f****** and fighting and Freddy forgot to let me out.” My first wife and I used that phrase a lot, and I still use it.
Originally that was little, down at the bottom of Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers cartoons.
Last Xmas I gave my grand nephew or whatever that is called a small book of Grimm’s Fairy Tales illustrated by S. Clay Wilson. He worked closely with Crumb on the Early Zapp issues. His ridiculous lack of restraint seems a good match for the Brothers Grimm.

I choose my current avatar because the idea hit me last night and I wanted a change. 

It's just an arrangement of flashlights to resemble a face.  It has a right angle flashlight (Shadow something or other) standing out the mouth that is supposed to resemble a pipe (as in tobacco or whatever you prefer to imagine it to be).

I will probably change it when I get bored of it.
