    Looks blurry, you should use a imagehost, try postimage.org , 3mb.us , imgcentre.com , Sharpen your focal and a few of the effects, text is too big and takes attention away from your focal. Make it smaller, work on lighting, depth, text, flow is good, but needs a bit more, Keep It Up

    :idea: Also save your sigs as png, that way they do not lose quality, jpg pixelates and lowers quality
    Before i Use to do it, but then someone told me the same thing, and I did and quality is kept.

    Blurry, I can't tell what the focal is, as was mentioned, save as a png, I don't think you had the jpg quality set high enough. :)

    viewtopic.php?f=10&t=4654 see here, take this one for example, the focal is the render - thats what the whole sig is about. the focal should be what catches the eye first, as the sig is all about it! the flow is the direction everything is going, so here everything is flowing to the left and slightly up.

    as for a beginner tut for basics of design... well you kinda have to learn it as you go, would be easier if we had a more active forum here.

    What's so hard about gradient maps? You duplicate the final image, select the gradient you like, and run it, then you fool around with the blend modes and opacity. ;)
