not bad for your first time...the background is a bit too bright for me though

do try using different fonts, not just those which come with windows

www.dafont.com --> nice place

i like the bg, you probably did it with the smudge tool, cause i can see smudges on neji's head.

Go through some tuts on making sigs and bg for sigs

www.pixel2life.com

Finally, dont forget to put a border

lol, yeah you're right I went a little overboard with the smudge:D Neji's head is actually supposed to touch the top of the pic. But I accidently smudged part of his head, so I was left with no choice but to smudge the rest of his head:D

it's quite good for a start. dim the backgroung a little and try to darken the text a tiny bit and gvie it a more 3-d effect
