This is my first animated sig, how's it look?

it's kinda slow, you could have it fade quicker, or have the name fade in as the character fades out.

I agree, It took me awhile to figure out that it was changing until the text appeared.

Also, being the letters have no outline, they seem to blend a lot into the background at the sides.

It looks fine, but I want to smack you for making a 1.6mb GIF file! You seriously need to optimize that sucker.

I got tired of waiting for it to load.  Optimize optimize!  ^___^

I did!  I used image ready, and that is low as it saved under optimized.  I didn't really intend it to be a sig, I just wanted to try it out.

That is it going faster, and with a highlight around the edge.  I forgot to upload this version.  (Still a high file size)

Quite a bit better for the text. Yeah, the file size needs to go down.... do you have repeating frames within it?

I went ahead and did some image optimizations... the framerate is a little faster now, but it's nearly half the size, take a look (used Jasc Animation Shop 3.04):

Awesome.  I am not really looking to use it as a sig though, I don't much fancy animated ones, I just wanted to have something that looked pretty, thanks though! :D

EDIT: also, the picture of grave is kind of fuzzy (on all of them), so I don't think I'd use it.

good thing you don't plan to use it, because it slows down my lame computer.

Blade: Check your caps lock key, it seems to be stuck in upper case. Also, your period, comma, and apostrophe keys seem to be broken, as they're not showing up in your sentence.
