    Can you explain what you did to this tag exactly?
    Because I don't really see to much.
    In the two different versions, I don't see the difference either.

    But from what I do see, you should add more effects, the background is telling to much of
    the signatures story, theres no effects leading to the render, or any form of blending IMO.

    Also my eyes jump around quite a lot, you should try to center a focal point.

    He stands out way to much and I'm not sure what the point of that gold line is for?

    My suggests are:

    - Get a brightness contrast layer on the cliff the left to add some depth to those

    - Then blur the cliffs and erase the blur heading towards the render to create a better sense of depth
    and draw more attention to him as the focal point.

    - Also add a low gaussian to the tents behind him like 0.2 or 0.3

    - Add a few swirling effects around the sword to correspond to the lightning in the background to
    impose the idea that he created it better.

    Hopefully that will help you out a bit and maybe give you a few ideas to the signature :D

    The 2nd version I fixed the contrast and lighting on the left side and darkened the upper right corner. It takes a good eye to notice the contrast difference. Also the fonts aren't the same.

    Well I wanted the signature's background and the render to tell the story without the overuse of effects. The landscape in the background is very peaceful and calm while the character is rather ominous and sinister looking. I just felt that the render and background used both complimented each other well.

    The gold line is part of the render. I guess I should remove that part.


    Thanks, I'll work on those suggestions and post results back tomorrow.

    Ah I see, I had that idea along those lines once I looked at it a bit more, I still suggest my ideas :D
    but I just like adding on to tags :P I see where you were coming from now.

    I did notice the text size, but the contrasting difference aren't that noticable even after you told
    me, they're there but barely atleast on my computer screen

    Try putting Gradiet map whit Lummusity. That would put a nice shadow and lights on the right spots.
