it's simple yet says a lot
But there is something missed in all of the sigs/Avas
You need to work on invironment effects.
For example, when you have a moon on the BG, and the sky is blue, you need to add some effects to it.
First of all, add a volum light to it, which effects on the stock as well.
Second, the color of stock should match the main BG colors.
For example, if there are blue and red colors, at left and right side of your character, The left side, should has a blue-ish highlight and/or shadow and the right side should has red highlight and/or shadow.
Also the light can pass from the stock to the Fore Ground of your image, depends on your stock's position, regarding to the light sourse.
Also adding some foreground layers to your sig, can make it more blended.
( I suggest to use thing brushes in both BG and FG )
Again, nice works
thank you for your critics. and yea i know i well... SUCK at blending the render into the sig, but i kinda like it clean. however if you would be willing to teach me, oh great anigraphuse. i would be happy to learn. (your sig is AWESOME :o wanna be able to do such things one day)

You're welcome and thanks for your compliment.
As for learning, I am at your service.
I think the best way to teach the basics, is to find me a stock, then I'll creat a sig, step by step.
I'll send you the PSD file via Email system, by explaining how I have done it.
For example, I put the stock, and create a layer in the BG. then send it to you.
at the next step, I'll add some more to it, and send it again, till we have a complete sig.
As for start, I suggest you to creat three Set folders in the layers section
Then name tham as BG (for the lower one), Stocks (for the middle one) and FG (for the top one).
Then add your stock to the middle one. Whatever related to the Background, should go to the BG folder. Stocks to the middle folder and foreground and border(s) to the FG.
Text can be added to BG/FG/Stock, depends on your sig and the style you want to use. Thisway, it's more easier to place, edit, rmeove etc each layer.
Feel free to PM me anytime.
