Hi Nitro...
I guess the sig is promising... the blur effect is nice..
now i'm not an expert by any means...but I think u need to give ur sigs focus..i mean a central element that the sig is supposed to showcase...in the current one, the left and right side are competing for attention...which undermines the "wholeness" of the sig...

I'm sure the artists of AF will be able to give u more significant feedback..
Good Luck to u Nitro :)

For starters, try getting a pre-extracted stock and put some brush strokes behind it. Voila! instant sig.

Nice use of the motion blur under filter effects, for starters it's very good I would rate it a A+ keep up the good work. If you want a anime sig insperation come look at my sigs, I am glad to help whom is in need in photoshop, although I only have PhotoShop Elements 3.0.

Its nice but it didnt seem anime-ish to me. More like a dirt bike advertisement.

Photoshop 7 is old, man. Get something nicer. Honestly, there's a limit in what you can do with your current software.
