    My very first graphic

    Okay guys so I finally got around to attempting to learn how to photoshop.
    Here is my very first image, let me know what you think and give me some pointers to learn some more.
    Please don't be extremely harsh because it is my first graphic.

    If you made that signature without bindly following a tutorial then congraturations, you have a better signature than many other people.
    Otherwise, you still have a signature better than quite a few others... =)

    What could be improved:
    1) Kakashi's blur to the left isn't good looking at all same for the little flare on the eyepatch.
    2) You probably applied a layer set as value and that causes those tiny green/red flares to appear next to the text and the eyepatch, causing it too look like a low quality image

    What you could've added to make it better/ what you could've done differently:
    1) You should try to apply the rule of thirds (google it).
    You didn't entirely ignore it, as the text's placement is right, and the mark on the eyepatch is at the right height, however the rest doesn't meet the rule's requirements.
    2) You could've played with the render a little more: it's really important to have the render you chose to fit right inside the other layers, without having it bump on top.
    Usually people fail at this and you did something about it (the blur and the background), but more is better in this case. The idea is to have the render in between other layers, having the layers on top of it "connect" with the ones behind it. This is called blending and if you'd like to check a good example, this is one of my older artworks i did to practice it, i think it's a good example.

    What you doped:
    1) The text looks really neat, the font fits well with the brush you used behind it.
    2) The background fits really well

    OVERALL: 8.5/10
    Your signature looks fine, it does have some fails to it but that's fine.
    Considering it's your first one, that signature's a dope. =)

    Thank you so much! I really appreciate the feedback. For the flare you see, I added a lens flare to a layer that I did "Apply Image" to, and then I changed that layer to Opacity 30.
    The reddish looking stuff on the left side is actually something I did consciously. I took the same brush tool (without the smudging) from the right side and used it again on the other side and changed it from Normal to Color. I agree that the reddish stuff looks retarded.. Idk why I added it lol.

    So, I wanted to ask if this signature is your imagination and thinking that your first sign.
    is not at all bad,The background is matched very well with the render and font. .
    7.5 / 10

    I don't think I fully understood that first line.
    Thank you for the feedback! It's much appreciated.

    I'd give it a solid 8.2 / 10
    I really like how you did the ripping effect. Looks great!
    A few tips though are the blur on the left side of his face stretch out a tad to much. Maybe if the background was something different I think it would correspond.
    Also the left side gets a bit to dark. Maybe if the text and background had a bit more contrast it would make it spark just a bit more.
    Overall great job for a first banner or graphic.

    Thanks! I appreciate the feedback. Also I agree it does get dark I probably could have just cut the left side off and the graphic would probably look better.
    I also don't really know how to use the pen tool well or render effects. I wanted to add some random lines in a paradox form around Hatake (my main render) but I couldn't figure it out.
