Street, I didn't use any pen tool, I just used one of the brushes from the link I gave you. It would work with any brush. I'll make something a little more detailed down the line.

As to the current one, it's not bad, but I don't like the text. I would never make text any of the primary colors, and never put it in a corner. Font choice could be better also.
Experiment with those three factors and it should look a lot better.
(try putting the text a little to the left from her chin, that should work better)

Optionally, just to give it some more depth, take a big (300px) soft (0% hardness) white brush and brush outside of the sig where the light is coming from, which looks like it's above where the text is now. Make sure only the edges of the brush actually make it onto the sig.

I do like the overall design. Where'd you get the picture from?

Thanks guys, glad you like it.

Thanks for the input SB, I'll try to work with those suggestions. I don't have an option to adjust the hardness of the brush, I can just work with the opacity, the mode and can turn airbrush effects off/on.

I just got the image off of Google actually. It's not a render but I did crop it.

Spoiler:
 

*EDIT*

How does this look?

Ok, I'm looking more toward the text on this one..
Spoiler:
 
I hid my PSN over his left bicep, just to give an idea what I'm looking for. I'm not sure how to accomplish the effect.
If you're unsure of what I'm talking about, I"m trying to make it look like the text is come out of the render and the effect

The Axis, I'm happier with. But thoughts are always welcome Smile

You want it to look like eve was part of the render or you want it to blend into that explosion thing you got going on where it is now?

I like the sparkle effect you got going on under the hands, tna the back ground is good.
For the font I would put a really small white border around the lettering.

Is it the phrase itself that you wanna change? Like instead of "Stay red like Moulin" would you wanna change it to something like "Never bet on Black" Something like that?

ON the Bumblebee sig.. Need to get rid of/change up the text on the left. Your PSN on the right is easy to make more visible. In the future either put a very translucent outer glow of one of the darkest colors in the sig around it, or just repeat the text in a new layer below it and turn the opacity down in a darker shade. It will blend and pop at the same time.

Maybe you could perhaps make it look like he's "shooting out" your PSN name. For me it's hard to see in it's current location due to how close the colors are, and I didn't originally notice it was there until you pointed it out lol. Hope that feedback helps.


*EDIT*

Ok so I'm a bit stumped. Maybe you guys can help me out, but I have no friggin' idea on how to get effects like the backround of this going on:

Anybody have any ideas? Just the way the background looks is what I'm after. The renders and whatnot I have ideas to do with, but I just seem to can't get anything close to those bg effects, and I think that really hurts the overall quality of my sigs. Eve, Banded and SB, you guys seem to be the masters of that kind of stuff.

the background needs to be something other than white.
Try blurring the C4D in the background to add 3point perspective. You have a foreground and a background, make the bot the middle ground and the focal. so blur the bot around the blue on it's torso and below and a bit of the shoulders.

the character in your sig now seems similar to the one you are working with.
The gray goes well.
You could also pull two colours off the render and do one of the circular gradient maps to bring out the focal.Smile
or even just a simple B/W clouds render selection. Smile
up to you though Very Happy= :D
