    the bg is random... and the image isn't supposed to blend with the background....
    the bg is 3 gradients white on a new layer... then erased the bottom layer without any background besides that..

    The render actually is meant to blend..
    Better to just say you're learning and trying to improve than claiming that it was all on purpose.
    We welcome beginners, but we get irritated with stingy people.

    i hate reading tut's... their too artificial... their not so much teaching you... but instructing you on a certain outcome

    You learn by getting familiar with the tools and techniques utilized.
    It would take you forever to get any good if you just sat around experimenting.
    Tutorials speed up the process of learning substantially.

    Yah. It would blend more if you didn't smudge it. Read tuts. They aren't artificial.

    You do tuts and try to reach a similar outcome. When you're finished, if your sig looks relatively close to the outcome or better, you successfully completed the tut. After you're finished the tut, you can take the knowledge you learned and apply it to your next sig. Tuts are meant to just open your mind to new ideas and teach you how to enhance your sig.

    Tutorials are a necessity for further improvement. I suggest you try doing some tuts or at least take a look at some PSDs or something. Any chance that I get to further my knowledge in graphic arts, I take and I think you should too.
