Nice set you have there!

I would rate it nine out of ten.

The images are sooo great!

I think the lettering in the icon and the tag line on the banner need something more, an outline or drop shadow.

Cool job

I like the images chosen, the way the border doesn't hold the whole image, and the effect over the background.

What bugs me is how the blast doesn't finish. it gets cut off. I think you should resize it or something. That would make it look better.

Also, try to make the thingy under the subtext extend under all the subtext. one or two letters were not illuminated. And do something with the text in the av. don't just drop it in there

7 3/4 out of 10

Pretty good. The fonts are nice and fitting, and I like how the blast extends off of the image, however, I agree with 3est: it would be a bit better if it wasn't cut off).

The border effect is great, but something gray-ish that vaguely resembles part of a hand is cut off on the left side. It looks a little awkward; maybe you could either include all of the mysterious gray object or just cut it out entirely.

Although I like text effects, and the shadow on the main text is well-done, I don't think it fits very well with a pixelated font. It's just my sense of aesthetics, so feel free to disregard this, but it feels kind of misplaced, giving something that is by design evocative of old 2D graphics a 3D effect.

It's good that you chose two different images for the signature and avatar, it makes it look far more interesting. However, the avatar is a little plain; perhaps you could play with varying effects and add a little more details next time?

7.5/10

It's pretty good, I suppose. The border is a little bit thick, and the smaller font face really don't seem to work well. I would go with a font like Calibri or 04b03. On the avatar, the text could use a drop shadow to make the text more visible.

7/10. I wish everyone's first set looked that nice! :)
