They are okay for the first time, but You need to work on what you do with your renders!!! Try some tuts in the tut section!

Not bad. Try making your text fit in a bit more by changing the layer mode of the text layer. Overlay and grain merge work nicely.

few tips:

 

normally sigs are 350x110. try better color choice, it can help the render blend in more. possibly lower the opacity and make a border for the text.

 

last off. begin with cartoon renders to start out, it can help you get the hang of it at first.

 

Overall...AWESOME for firsts! -.-

 

you are definantly capable of getting real good real fast -.-

Try to vary your backround a bit more because to me they look the same. Also add more fg effects and work with better cut-out renders. Overall though thats a good first sig

Eww its the whining tuxedos. :P I think for the first one you should take the text off of Sid the Whiner's helmet. I use photoshop so I can't help you. Unless you've got good hockey renders/good pictures which you can render out I don't suggest you try to render any old picture because it turns ugly. Leave the background in there and do something to it. eg.

add like a border. Sorry if I sound so mean but yeah just some tips...I'm not a photoshop pro so I don't know that much I just do it. Download different fonts ( http://www.dafont.com ).

 

Also your current signature is 127KB and the forum only allows up to 60KB.

 

And those are good for your first time.
