that is actually a good start i am not very good at teaching (only learning) so i will try my best to help

im not great with text but it needs to be smaller and out of the way yours is kinda taking the focus

you can try blending in the renders better

you can do this a couple off ways but the easiest way for me is to duplicate the render a couple of times
layers>duplicate layer

hide the top renders so that the bottome one is showing you can do this by clicking the eye symbol in the layers list

then you chose thevisible render and play with some blurring filters
such as motion blur and radial and gaussian

and then unhide your others and repeat the process until you have something you like

hope this helps if you dont understand somethin ive said just say and i will try to re word it better

*good luck*

Well Titch, as Willo said, you could also use brushes to create backgrounds for sigs like the way I did in yours !
Try some grunge brushes for your try and stick onto colors that blends with the render.
Usually try brushes over multiple layers rather than betting on a single layer !

When I'm lazy I just make one out of renders ;)

As D3ATH said, that's a good start for the beginners, but you could still improve if you work on with the same grunge brushes but stick onto something big in size.
Soz fella if this might discourage you but tbh you really have to get some good learning on color choosing before you proceed. You had some pretty bad color sense on that one. But I suppose that might not be a big problem since you might get along as you progress.
Btw I suppose you might get your inspiration for your colors from the very games you play! For instance as most RPG/Shooter games turn out to be, you could rely on some pretty dark shades and that might help you out with this sig, but just make sure that you make the render distinct enough to be noticed !

No i appreciate all help mate, and to be honest I wasnt really trying to make a good one out of that, was just buggering around!! Just wanted to check that was the effect you guys were after....

If I get some time later Ile have anouther go with more serious intents :p

Not read the entire thread, so excuse me if this has already been said.

The best way to do an easy background that will make it easier for you to blend your renders into, is to use your render, or stock image if you are using one. That way, the colours of the background go with the colours of the main render or renders. All you'd have to do is to duplicate the render a couple of times and make sure it fills the canvas, and then just smudge them around, or use a filter. Then, when you place the render(s) on the signature, they should look like they belong there.

There's an idea Titch, why not try a Fusa sig. Nice Gun one, give you a bit of practice. lol just an idea. liked the Resi renders you used as well.:)
