    Ok, so I just saw this kind of a pic in a magazine and thought that it could be done easily.
    But, when I got "Done", I was still missing something.

    Could You guys tell me what it is?

    you should try darkening the wall quite a bit on the right, so there is contrast with the left and right sides.

    also if you replaced the whitle line with black, it would help.

    btw, why are you making a "siggy", you can only have text so don't you mean avatar?

    Yeah, a black line will look much better, and it would be easier on the eyes.

    Do you mean, the lines, but not the text? And what do you mean this isn't a siggy?

    EDIT: GrooveMachine, No I did not see the tut, I saw it on a magazine. Guess the creator of the pic made that/made it from that

    I think he means your not allowed picture siggys so you wouldnt be able to use it. You could be using it in another case though

    Well if you're going for a brick wall look, either get a pic of one on google, or follow a tut. Otherwise it's really good.

    Hah, that's cool. Try adding a deeper shadow from the letters, and use some darker brushes or a color burn overlay with a cloud render. That should look really cool. Try using the color burn tool as well, and make it a little darker in general. DeviantArt has some awesome brushes and samples.
