What can I do better?

Image

This is the first graphic I've made in any program, and I'm using PSP.
Are there any good tutorial sites that anyone knows of, where I can learn to make better graphics?

It looks very good. I usually make my players' pics a little larger. It is just a personal preference of mine.

The background looks nice and overall a sharp sig. ;-D

one of the better first sigs ive seen ;-D

i agree with making the players a bit bigger, it fills in the space better too ;-D

one little secret: do you notice the edge on the cowboy logo? use the "blur" effect on it and it will go away.

Yeah I was thinking that, but I was just happy to finally cut out the players.
Thanks for the advice.

How did you cut out the players? or did you just erase around them? it looks like their outlines are pixeled, it might be a small border you made with a drop shadow, i cant tell, if it is nevermind this comment.

Love the fades though, is that under 12kb?

In PSP I used the freehand selection tool...and I can't get the boarder around the player right...any tips?

And, no it isn't under 12kb :-t ...it's just over, about 13.5 I think.
