You don't want them too big. Most people go with 350x100. Mine varies depending on what im using. Mudkip avatar is pretty lol though.

I use 400 x 200...
It's what I was always told to do.

And thanks,
the Mudkip one was a little frustrating to make look good.

Flow, for example, Hariyama is a moderatly calm and spiritualistic pokemon so I added a calm mountain background to make it fit...For his backgrounds he usualy just puts on a random picture Razz

Good point.
Although I tend to use colours from the characters and make my own background.

I'm not going to say you don't put a lot of effort into them, but you need to put more in. The backgrounds are either one bulk color or some sort of smudge / etc. Using Photoshop or GIMP you can do so much more with the background its insane. You just need to play around and try a bit more.

That and fractals / C4Ds make everything. Sure if you over abuse them they really ruin the picture, but the right amount of them can really bring it out more and make it more visually appealing.

See I'm still relatively new to this kind of stuff and I need a lot of help from people who ARE good at it.
I'm kidna looking for a mentor in a sense.
I made a new one.
But again,
it blows.

You need to layer. It seems that you barely even are doing different things with brushes. You either smudge, or do a basic gradient.

When I first stated I always did a solid color background and then scribled over it with the burn tool. Like the background for my emerald sig.

duplicate your render layer multiple times

The biggest problem I have is that I can barely use the software to it's full potential.
Because the effects I have are horrible and I really don't know where and how to use new brushes.

Well you can download a brush and put it in the brushes folder if you are using GIMP if you use Photoshop then import the brushes that's what I did when I got interested in sigs...

I like the Cream one but next time put a 1x White Stroke around the text so it'll be easier to read.

They're better, but, to be honest, it looks like a background, a filter, and random smudging with colors, with the render and text, of course.
