Since I couldn't log in at bv at the moment because our wifi is soooo slow.. 
I started to play with the tools in Photoshop & used some of my old photos  Razz  

I used to do graphics a few years back but stopped and wanted to see if I still had the basics down and so I came up with this~

I'm not sure if it's good since other members' graphics are crazy awesome so...

That's a nice one since you didn't edit in many years.
I'd say it's okay but graphics are not only about just making up with colors and flowers. You need to add an idea to your graphics, something that makes sense. For example you could do a flower and your avatar as if rising from that flower you know. 
Those 'crazy awesome' graphics you see on the forums are so because they have an idea on them. They are meant for something, are meant for you to understand something with them.
Here, as a viewer, from your graphic i could understand you wanted to show us the colors of the flowers/spring etc. But what does the move with popcorn do with it? You should combine both the moves and the clothings with flowers, instead put a flower cone move or another one and then later add a flower in your avi's hand.
Based on your graphic ,since you wanted critique i'd say that:
1) The red arrow: you need to not cut-off your work. Do not delete half of the flower's ends just to fit in the size. Make sure all the graphic is complete, not deleted on the edges.
2)The black circle symbolizes the central area of your graphic. That area (in your case) should be sharpened and outlined, as in marked the most important point from your graphic. Something that captures the viewer's attention.
3)The blue arrow symbolizes the colors + the lines on the flower petals. Try not to delete the lines, try to fade them in with the other colors. As for the clothings, use a color replacement tool and try to match/combine the colors you want the flowers to be with your avi's clothing. That will make a huge difference.

I've randomly made one so you can understand. See don't try to add many colors and shadows and sparkles etc at the same time
simple, flower , text c,haracter and your'e ready to go; See the blue arrow> the avi is sharpened and my general point of attention is to my character ready to drink a margarina coffee{it's made from flower petals}. The red arrow symbolizes the matching colors. As you see, try to use different shades of colors on your graphic. Not different colors. If you do want to use different colors, i'd advice you to look at the color wheel below, as every color from it combines perfectly 100% with any other. Those are the basic shades and general base colors.

As not trying to be harsch, just giving advices and ciritique since i see in you great potential and talent, and i want you to give your best of it. Try to add some shadows and sharpened elements along the graphics and you'll be good to go ; ]

I tried to make her look like she was sitting on the flower ((although i'm not very sure if it's obvious)) it's not very original but I wanted to play with different textures cx I did what you said about not using too many colors so... lol wow i feel really embarrassed now  Critique? cx 3129804369  laugh

Now take a look at the difference
Critique? cx Screenshot_1545Critique? cx Screenshot_1546

Id totally say the second one is a BLOWN UP. You just did it right there! Try to add more sharp to it ^^and if you made like a cloud underneath the text, add some more effects of the cloud along. Play with the colors, similar to this:

And as i said use colors from the coloring wheel, look what a big difference you can make:
Critique? cx Screenshot_1554
in this situation i'd say the color redish>yellow is the base of your paint. Use it more often ;] and end up with a wonderfull result!


 This is so much better than what i've expected!
Simple, yet fascinating. I adore it good job+++
