I think there still needs to be something behind his head, but I like the braves symbol on the right side. Also I would try to blend in the text better, it stands out a whole lot just being that block setting and bright white

I have bad luck when it comes to signatures that the person either gets traded or hurt...in this case I hope he gets traded.

Those are your first sigs?! That's VERY good for your first few sigs. Check out some tutorials we have on the fantasy logos forum and it should help you out a lot. Very good work for a beginner though, keep it up! ;D

really solid for first sigs. looks like you have a lot of the basics down already. i see your biggest weakness at this point is the text, color wise and font wise.

the second johnson sig is the better of the two...but its too empty behind the left side of the render. if you know what stock photos are (pretty much any abstract photo)...try blending one of those into the BG...it will set the sigs off. ;D

About the text, I really don't know how to get good texts from GIMP. The text options are really basic and I'm really stuck there. Also, I'll see If I can get a stock photo in there, I'll post an updated version of the sig soon.

I put in a stock photo. here's the new version:

wasn't 100% on that one, so here's another:
