    Um, too big for a sig, random c4d's dont help, Good vs evil thing? could do some work.

    maybe a more empty /grungy background, and a clash of energy in b/w them, to make it seem like a battle.

    I see what you were going for, decent concept just not executed that well but that is expected since you're just starting out.

    The biggest issue here is blending all the way around.
    Your dragons and c4d's stick out way too much.
    I'll give you a noob tip for blending until you get a bit better and figure out better ways to do this.

    Take out a soft round brush, then click on your eraser tool
    set flow to 50% and opacity to 10%.
    Then you want to erase softly around the edges of whatever you're blending,
    in this case it would be your dragon and c4d's.
    Do this until it almost looks like your focal points blend nicely with your background.
    Then you want to duplicate the layer of the stuff you erased and set the layer on multiply. erase everything on the multiply layer except the edges.
    That will help a bit more. Adding a photo filter will help too.
    Kind of hard to explain all this..do you have teamviewer?
