To Be Honest
Thanks man, if you're using GIMP have you tried the FX Foundry? It has some good sharpening tools, it adds a heap of other cool scripts/filters to GIMP.
You should really reduce the skull size on the angmar bg, at least by 10% maybe 15-20%
Just think of it as a snaga skull

Good for a 1st attempt, now you need to work on the letters effects etc. and maybe reduce the stuff behind the letters
Also, how come the letters looks pixelized ?
It's easy make your letters as big as possible (dunno generally i found for me that 1024x768 is more than enough unless you really want to get some very HD stuff), then reduce, instead of increase the size of letters. Also add a texture with the text shape, and use this texture as a base. Then don't hesitate to add layers to give some 3D and nice looking effect on the letters !
What I think you might need to work on is the business of your signatures. Especially when it comes to combining text with pictures, you need to make certain that the eye is able to read the text without hindrance; however if you make the immediate background behind the text too busy, it will be hard to read, and that draws down the attractiveness of the whole composition, even though everything apart from the text is absolutely wonderful (this is something I, too, am prone to, and some signatures are indeed better without any text whatsoever). I think the Tigris and The Sundering signatures you provided above could use some finetuning in the text-image relation. The moon in the middle feels somewhat too bright, at least in the areas where the text is, and in the Tigris signature the text could be somewhat brighter while the borders could be toned down, I think.
But I wish to point out that apart from the text, the overall composition of your signatures has become markedly better.
