    Work on the text a little bit (different font would be way better)

    That sort of background is not really meant for an avatar. It is really out of focus. Try getting it clearer. And also with the text try making it blend in with the background.

    To do that just add a stroke of like 1px and on the fill lower the settings until it looks like its blending in.

    Looks like you took a stock texture, which is generally aimed towards 3D models (not flat sigs), grabbed a section of it, painted some red in there, then used the text tool to write your name on it. Now this can be done well if its done correctly.

    This is 5 minutes from me, feel free to use it, just showing you how I would do it. and note I just used the last text I had selected.
