They are both really cute T'Neal (your name is really interesting - is it short for something?).
The only thing I would suggest is making the pictures in both sigs bigger.
They don't need to be ginormous, but you could definitely make them about 150% bigger (especially on the animated one) and it would still be good. Also with the animated one slow the picture changing down a bit.
A white stroke around your name would make it pop more too.

Sig making is totally addictive huh. :D

As Rebecca suggested, I'd make the photos a bit bigger and slow it down so that we can see your boys and admire their handsomeness. I would also pull everything in a wee bit - on the red one, pull your name and the hearts in towards the photo. On the animated one, I'd pull the hearts out a bit so that you can make the text bigger and, as I said already, make the photos bigger.

Great work, T'Neal. It's extremely addicting - but at least it's not fattening! :o)

It looks fabulous!!! Great job on the animation. What I used to do when I would do square siggies is either bend them or drag them onto a new, larger canvas and give the square layer shadow and stroke. That way it kind of pops and you don't notice the edges so much.

Yea thats okay, the more you do it the better. I've forgotten to save many siggies and had requestors need changes. but its easier to do it the second time.


Oh! and one tip, when you do animation like glitter the text. always save one original layer of the text so that if you need to edit it,you can. Because you'll notice when you add the noise for the glitter, it changes the layer so you can no longer edit it.
