Pretty cool.
Try looking at PNG'S/RENDERS
to make sigs. Try: www.planetrenders.net
or www.premiumrenders.com
Font is also pretty important. Try: Dafont.com

You need to discover your style.

Read signature tutorials to learn techniques in sig making, personally I don't stick to tuts because I like having my own style, but every once in a while i'll try out something new.

Tutorials
C4D's
Also visit the sites that Laburton suggested for fonts and renders.

It takes lot and lots of practicing and experimenting to get things right, just put some time into it every night and you will get better.
