It might've been nice if there was anything resembling flow to it... looks like that dude just bashed his head into a purple wall though.

so i was right? it's crap...lol, i just dun like sigs that aren't monotone

maybe I didn't explain myself well... the problem isn't the colours - if anything this sig is still pretty monochrome (which btw is the right term when you're talking about something visual - monotone is an audio term). The problem is that the flow screeches to a halt right in front of the render.
Let me show you: with what you have now, there's almost a boundary in front of the render like I've highlighted in red - this is essentially the direction of the flow right now.
Think of the flow as the way your eyes move when you look at it - in your current signature (not the corruption one but the blue one that you're using) you have nice lines that guide the eye along the sig to where the render is; it's a good flow because it covers almost the entire image and doesn't move too abruptly. You generally use contrasting areas to create this (ie. light areas on a dark sig or dark areas on a light sig)
Here I've drawn the sort of flow that I think this signature would've looked better using - a nice gentle line fitting itself into the shoulder from your render:
See how it draws your eyes from the text to the render and back again? If you could've made your plasma cloud/whatever the bg is supposed to be do that, it would've been a much more successful signature.
Hope this helps and makes sense to you!

ty, i see what ur saying now, i hav sum brushes that could possibly make that effect with a clipping mask, in the next sig i post (not the darth nihilus one) i will have tried to do flow a little better, but i dun think i'll really be able to get out of the monochorme style i'm in ATM, i just like that style way to much, when i was learning how to make sigs it was what i was taught (and shown) was good, and it was kinda ingrained into me that with PS monochrome is the look to go for, again, tyvm

I may now have as much room to talk, but it looks like all of your signatures are the same.. you should try something different.
