Brutal honesty: They're nothing wonderful. But everyone's first sigs usually aren't. Nothing comes without practice: read tutorials, practice, practice, practice, and get better.

I use Photoshop CS6.

I'd avoid paint.net, I've never seen a good sig come from it. Not to say it isn't possible though.
GIMP, while I personally don't like it, is probably the best free software you could be using for sigs.

yea paint.net has very little to none signature tutorials.almost all tutorials say take some random background and post a render on it. Some of them dont look bad when you do it that way But some look terrible.

all i did for my signature was make a red background add new layer Post some black dots Do a motion blur and post ma render.

Why you no like gimp?

I used Photoshop CS3 prior to using Gimp. It handled weird after I was use to using Photoshop. All the tools are the same, but they function slightly different to a point where it's rather irritating.

This is for Photoshop, but it explains almost every basic fundamental technique to signatures: http://imgur.com/ZpDJiAo

Yeah, I so didn't look at the languages. I've used Photoshop so much that I can usually follow foreign tuts anyway. XD

Hope the English ones can help.

I'm not very good at rendering, though I can if I really needed to. But I use to use planetrenders but they're crappy now. Nowadays I just search renders on DeviantArt.
