    Nice job! Work on light source techniques as well as shadows and highlights... and focus of the subject. Good work! Keep trying!

    I've never had issues with imgur lowering the image quality, weird.

    Anyway: i personally hate the 3D distortion effect in general, it looks messy, usinspired and strains my eyes.
    I guess some people may like it, but i don't think this one was well done either, if i were you i'd avoid it completely.

    Some areas (like the eyes) are too blurred, while the right side of the signature is pretty much empty.
    In terms of colors, they're mediocre: it's mostly blue with a very small amount of green and a very very small touch of red. Not very appealing tbh.

    Areas that could see improvement: limiting overly fuzzy/noisy elements, better color composition, better canvas selection.

    Imgur have two two types of compression for images, 1=lossless and 2=lossy.
    Lossy compression is only used when the image is above a certain file size (5MB for pro, 1MB for standard) and will then lose quality like this signature.
    I could change the file size which I probably will do next time.

    I basically added the 3D distortion rgb effect because I saw that spaces signature was getting a lot of votes(LOL), so I though that it was something with that, but I don't like the effect that much either. It can be nice sometimes.

    The eyes are okay blurry, but not that much on the original picture(not uploaded one). I could make the other side of the render more filled up, I could eventually add a text or make the render bigger, put it in the middle and add a background or something. But right now im not focusing on the background that much, more how I would add overlays and give effects to the render. I will be adding more action to the background though.

    IDK about the colors, I think it's okay. I mean colors are colors, every color is used but I see what you mean I guess.

    EDIT : BTW I am not trying to not accept your criticsm if you can say that, I am very happy that you help me

    You may want to add some more lighting on certain parts of it. Maybe make a transparent gradient a distance away from the image, so it looks more shaded.

    Also adding some lens flares may turn it better.

    Other than it being too solid in terms of lighting, it's a pretty nice job.
