My First Sig....any good?

not a bad first sig at all....if you cut out that render yourself...you did a pretty nice job. the BG is a little plain, but as you learn to do more you will figure all of that out.

a border is really important as was already stated.

one way to kind of cheat until you learn some tricks is to make the team logo take up most of the background and blend it in a bit (lowering its opacity..changing its color, overlaying it etc). its an easy way to make a sig feel more complete and not as empty.

keep em comin and show us your progress ;-D

EVERYONE uses that font on one of their first sigs, including me. It's some kind of phenomenon.

For a first, thats not bad at all. It even has a pic effect. Some things you should do: add a border, make the logo bigger, blend the logo blend in.

Thanks for all the input guys. Appreciate it. Alkoholic was a little hard on me, but it's all good. I made some changes based on some of the stuff everyone said.

Yeah, it looks better, but I'd get rid of the pattern on the logo.

Awesome first sig. I like the text and the BG but to me, Brady looks too far away on the left side.
