    That looks pretty good, I would suggest tho to make the width a bit shorter and to make the " Stress never helps " a bit brighter

    I made it with the same dimensions as a facebook cover. It was its purpose.
    Somehow it resized alone when uploading.

    Here are my opinions:
    1) The yellow light completely ruins the pic,if you really want to use it,don't cover the subject of the image.
    2) The background looks more like a graffiti A.K.A. there is no depth at all.
    3) You really should take away the snowflakes/night sky background.

    Overall,the subject is interesting,the text placement is fine (Putting it with different styles helps GREATLY!)
    However,the background doesn't fit the theme,so do the particles and effect chosen.

    A businness man inspires a clean design,with possibly sharp edges,the image is overall filled with blurs and "chaotic" placement.

    How to improve the image:
    1) Completely remove the snowflakes/whatever those things are.
    2)Don't cover the subject with such light.
    And as extra:
    a) Try to use a 2D background,which interacts somehow with the subject.
    A good example is my own signature: a few brushes put on top of the subject and a few under it,to mix together well enough to seem a single thing.
    b) Try a more simple style,without using C4Ds (or at least not as main source of focus!).
    c) Try to mix 'n' match with the text: You have a cool line coming out from the subject heading to the left side,don't you?
    Then,after clearing the background and murdering off that light effect,try to put a "STRESS" text on the top of such bar and a "Never helps." on the bottom-right of it.
    To make it even cooler,select the layer's alpha layer of the text,make a new layer on top of it and try to use a C4D or some kind of brush with very low visibility to give a reflection effect to the text.

    Thanks for the feedback.
    Personaly, now looking at it "finished" I feel like there is depth but there is a lot of colors involved. The nebula texture a.k.a. snowflakes are in the way and
    the light yeah might be diferent.

    So, tell me, how should the light be in your opinion?
    Thats my main question. The rest I can take care of.

    Either edit the kind of layer from normal to something else (experiment with them to see if they look nice) or/and move the layer behind the subject.

    The flawed concept is that: There is no need of a light added to the image (as you asked: "how should the light be",while there is no necessity of a light to be ;D)

    A super simple fix may be to add contrast to the background as a first step,seeing if it can be left as is,else i'd opt to swap it out

    I know how it feels to be a newbie to something (we all do) and i can tell you tutorials step by step don't really work well.
    At least for me...
    Based on my experience,i can say that trying out everything by yourself is the best way to truly learn things.
    Following step by step tutorials screw you up as soon as you modify the steps,with a little "apply somewhere" component and little "on the go" edit.

    My suggestion would be to:
    1) Take a few brushes of every kind you might ever need (splatters,lines,vectors,etc etc).
    2) Download a few fonts to fill a variety of styles.
    3) Download some C4Ds,premade images,renders and such starting resources.

    Then,make a few layers,make some crap in it and then apply filters/brushes/layer effects all over until you find something eye-appealing,then focus on such thing you've discovered by doing 1-2 signatures focused on such effect.
    This takes much more time and effort,but provides better rewards...especially when improvising

    I do that way, I get the tutorials, but like, after 6 steps I am already doing stuff on my own. And I'm not exactly a newb, I just didnt evolve because I stopped doing gfx at some point (so, I am a newb)
