Overall the elements just don't feel very integrated. It needs some sort of unifying component, and I'm just not seeing that in this piece.

Text is also very hard to notice.

The smudging behind the render is a good start, and looks pretty good.

But then it seems you randomly placed some circles around the canvas.

Also as wm says the text is hard to read.

Loose the colourfull circles and either try: abstract renders or more smudging.

To put it bluntly lol. I hope too see you back up to where you where back during the tS days very soon. If you need any help just PM me or add me on msn or something.

I can design as well... just ive decided to be "creative".
Now this is an acurate representation of where creativity gets you in the real world. {Tongue Out}

Yes but this is unfocused creativity. You need to focus it more I think.

Observe my personal text.

Originality is fine, but originality for originality's sake is not. You shouldn't set out on a piece to be creative, you should set out to convey an idea.

For example, with this signature, I went looking on PlanetRenders for a good stock, which I found, and then I knew I wanted to integrate lines from "Ulysses" into it, so for about half of the time I was working, I had this big old block of text on the image.

To me, this doesn't work. There's no real holding element that attaches the render to the circles, I'm not sure what could be done, maybe 1px brush would help but I'm no fan of the style.

My point here was to make an ironic contrast of horror and fun polka dots.
