Okay, since I've actually been trying to create signatures I decided to share my experiences. Unfortunately, I'm GIMPed when it comes to graphic creation so I'm extremely limited in my capability
Anyway, I feel I'm going in the right direction for the most part. My only weakness is text, so much so that I completely gave up on adding it to any of my signatures (Except for the 雷電 of course). Maybe with a little assistance from another graphic maker, we can add text to some of the following images.
Feedback/Constructive Criticism is welcome
Raiden (Currently Reserved for me)
Big Boss (Kinda lazy with this one, but I really liked the way it came out)
The Boss (A little lopsided, I really wish I could've done better )
Leon & Ada (I thought it was interesting...)
Shadow of the Colossus (I honestly didn't like the final product, but I put too much work into it to not save it)
Kratos (I tried to get a blood effect going with the splats, but it ended up to blurry )
Ending of Metal Gear Solid 3 (Fuck yeah)
I might like the Metal Gear Solid series

Weeeeeeeee blurrrrr :3
Well about text, you shouldn't stop adding it just because you can't do it right - otherwise you'll never get better ¦^) As a tip though, you can start by looking for a good font that fits with the overall mood of your sig. And when trying to place it, try and make it fit with the movement.
Maybe you can try to mix different effects...some of those sigs are so overwashed with blurs that it loses the focus of the render.
If you're going for a name at the end... I'd recommend making a stamp of it :3 it's much easier to manipulate then plain words =p
