Taking in some of the advice given to me by w000t and others (big thanks) I decided to make my 3rd attempt at a signature. This time I (think) I managed to get a proper light source in, text is not the focal point (albeit it looks a bit crummy) and overall I feel the effects came together and flowed with the render better; rather than being a blob of randomness.
The only thing that I'm unsure about in this signature is the lazer Samus is shooting. It seems like the lazer is almost a bigger focal point than Samus, idk.
Anything else I should improve on with this sig? Please be the harshest critic possible, as I'm really new to all this, but really want to learn.
PS: I really love those type of borders lol
