there you go Brad. ;-D

a lot better than the teix one.

the colours work better on this one. i also like the background on this one...sometimes an abstract background works great on a sig.

suggestion...cutting your pics more neatly...i can see some yellow stuff around k-rod's cap...you gotta make sure that you take the whole background out of the original picture...

nice work. ;-D

Just keep messing around with different tools. Picture selection has a lot to do with things and that's hurting you there.

Use color balance layers on your backgrounds, so you can make them the color you want to make your text more visible...and almost always put a stroke on your text, even if it's just a one pixel black, it does a lot in making it stand out. Keep messing around, and you'll get better, but not bad for a beginner.
;-D :-)
