well nice attempts, and keep playing around with effects and stuff until you can work into a nice style of your own

may i ask what version of photoshop you use?

try reading a few tutorials to brush up your skills.

Yeah, good job dude for your first few attempts. They were much better than my first ones that's for sure!

Try mixing about with Text effects. Adding effects such as Drop Shadow, Bevel Emboss, Outer Glow, Stroke, etc. can really change the way the text blends with the rest of the graphic.

Like in your Sam Fisher one, the Red text clashes with the background, so perhaps a black stoke, outer glow or bevel emboss would help separate it and make it stand out better.

Yeah if you can up your brushing technique you can really bring your sigs to life. A lot of my backrounds on my sigs are made with brushes

UPDATE: Avatar Added

I've been really busy so I haven't posted anything new in a while. I have plenty of Almost Finished Sigs so There'll be a lot of new stuff added. I just had a few mins so I made this:



I really liked my Venom Sig, but it was too big & didn't look good Sig-Sized. I also wanted a cool Avatar, so I put both of those ideas together & came up with this. Just made it small & added Brighton X to it. Hope everyone likes it.
