    Now this is much much better.

    The only complaints I have is that the text placement is bad and the render and effects are too dark.

    For the text, I'd make it smaller and bring it closer to the render, or Make it a bit smaller and put the "Gears Of War" Closer to the render.

    For the darkness, just add a light source around the canvas. Or make a new layer, grab a soft white brush, and then brush on the effects and render smoothly. Then change the blending mode to whatever fits best. I think overlay is a good one.

    Here's kid of an example of what I mean.

    Better.

    Now my only complaint is that the text placement is still off. - Try bringing it up just a little

    *If you can brighten up your render like it is on your original, that'd be even better.

    Okay. Well. I can't now. I'll do it when I get home.

    And the background render or the GoW render? Not sure what you mean.

    Font is meh.
    Text placement is meh.
    Depth is meh.
    Render blending is meh.

    How could you improve this?
    1. Don't add too many effects on the text.
    2. Put text closer to render.
    3. Merge layer, CTRL + M, play with the curves level.
    4. Play around with the blending options, if I were you, in this sig I would go for a bit darker sig, but not too dark.
