yes that one is better. your text is too complicated. there are a few techniques in which you can make your text look better, but again, i stress to go as simple as possible. you still need to work on your opacity/fill (transparent levels) and then start working on lighting and blending. i do see improvements though. did you cut that wright yourself?

yes i cut him myself, same as the statue of libert which was a pain in the butt!


they both look MUCH better ;-D

text looks better than it did before but i think you took a step back in terms of cutting. still looks sloppy. whats up with the pic on the left? looks black and white, while the rest of the sig isnt?

actually they both looked like they were missing color. not black and white, but most a lot of their color gone.

this arod one is better, but now you need work on making arod pop out a little bit more. also with your bg's, they all seem to be very abstract, try working it some real life pictures or maybe just a big stock picture.

ok i think you have the "basics" down somewhat. you now need to make it look better than just sitting 2 pics on top of the background ;-D
