Not bad for a start but as long as you are willing to practice and put effort into graphic design, I am sure you will improve. I suggest keeping everything you make saved so you also have something to look back on if you do plan to improve and spend time designing things.

I am not great at explaining how I would change things but try to play around with the drop shadow settings, stroke sizes, opacity etc. Playing around with the tools you have is one of the best ways of learning since it gives you an idea on what everything does.

Good start buddy

Looks cool, I'd say a good place to start improving your techniques and edits is working on blending and layering. Whether everything is on one flat plane or separated in multiple layers, a little bit of Gaussian blur and shadowing can create a false depth within the image.

This isn't bad by any means, I remember my first "edit," was pretty bad but once you spend more time with the tools you'll develop your personal style. Keep it up!

Try adding some anti-aliasing to your text next time to get rid of those jagged edges.

Change None to one of the others options, like Smooth. These methods can also be accessed within the character panel.

None (Top) vs. Smooth (Bottom)

Also, watch out for and try to avoid those fake "png" renders you find online. Try to hide their abrupt cut-offs when using them, too.
