    Well seeing as it's your first it's not too bad, the rising sun effect is simple, and the rendered cloud backgrounds just makes it a nice plain beginners piece. Just keep looking at tutorials, a few of the most important concepts to learn early i would say are Depth, lighting, and focal, just look up some tutorials on them and it will point you in the right direction. You should leave text out, until you can properly use it to match with your signature.

    No problem, Depth/Slight Lighting Tutorial If you can start to understand bits in there then it will help you a large amount, that will then help you bring out your focal point. You can learn about more advanced lighting techniques later.
