images blurry, crappy font, 5 grungebrushes rest is a normal black background, no color (if you want something to be "dark" first throw on a color balance layer and pick a nice color, then throw a gaussian 2,0 blur on top of it go to edit>fade gaussian blur and use the multiply blending mode for a "dark" sig)

i give it....a 2/10

brushing isnt hard at all...you just need to try it...here ill tell you how to brush something, i know its the basics...but heh it works >.>

1)Start a layer, use the cloud filter (for better effects)
2)Create a new layer, take 1 brush, tap a few times at different places, set blending mode to soft light (use foreground color black)
3) do this about 4-5 times with different brushes each time
4) take a new brush set your foreground color to white, brush a few times, set blending mode to softlight
5) use color balance (adjustments menu) to pick a color
6) new layer, ctrl+a, edit>stroke> 1 px border
7) add any other crap and you have yourself a sig =D

this is one basic style of brushing, using different brushes, styles/blending modes and SOMETIMES a filter (filters mostly suck, but you need to use the cloud filter in this style or else you get a really weird half transparant background....unless you use a basic black or white background...but thats crap >.<)

you need new grunge brushes, i can see you didnt use a cloud filter, but just a normal black background which makes the brushes easy to see...and doesnt look nice, it is an improvement, but it can still use some more, picture is too blurred and low quality...you sig also lacks color...i mean, a sig doesnt have to be black and white to be "dark"

Both sigs look boring. On the second one i say take out the stuff behind that figure in the middle. Maybe then the BG will stand out more.
