Of course! I also thought that they were a little too bright, but didn't knew what I could apply to fix it. Thanks for the tip!
Make sure to check my guides!

I'm flattered that you ask! Since you use photoshop, you can do a lot of cool things with text so I'd start there. First of all you should make sure to have symmetry with text; in the youtube banner, your HOLIDAYUNIVERSE + then twitch.tv/etc texts don't allign but they could easily. For links, I'd use a clear font like Calibri, Times New, Bebas or Akrobat. Like so:



I also choose a different colour for the link so it stands out, because your twitch address is pretty important. For your username it's cool to stylize so a nice font and a nice colour will do, but for links keep it simple IMO. What I'd do with your name is add a shadow and a gradient.

To do a gradient, double click on the text layer and go to "Gradient Overlay"




You can also do a gradient with just one colour so to speak, which often looks very nice, with this setup:




To do a shadow, copy the text layer and move the bottom one slightly up down left or right, then go layer style (double click the layer) and choose colour overlay, then make it black or a dark shade.



With the text out of the way, here's some other advice.

To blend a random background more nicely to the render of the champion, you should adjust the lighting and colours.




I added "two o clock spotlight" (twice) and lowered the hotspot, which made it a bit more eerie too which matches with thresh




for blending the colours, I used a greenish gradient layer over them both, set to soft light, then a violet warming filter




some other stuff you can do is "selective colour" which u can use to remove a colour from the picture or emphasize a certain colour. you can play with that too, i find it super useful for making a signature/banner a certain colour i want it to be.


some misc tip, I usually don't like using the same champion twice in a banner like you did with the two threshes, i think that's "unrealistic" so it doesn't appeal to me, since there is supposed to be only one Thresh. I think it looked kinda nice here though to be fair. Sharpening the image when you're done often leads to a good result, so use "smart sharpen" once or twice when you're done and see if you like it. be sure not to oversharpen text because it looks low quality when you do that.

So in the end this is what it looks like with all my suggestions:





as for Vayne and Jhin, I could think of a cool background maybe but I'd need to know for which skins first.

Check out other project skins like Yi, Yasuo, Lucian etc. If you find a really large image (3k+ pixels) you can use some of the background as a background for your render since they will be thematically similar.

will do, but it'll have to wait for a few days as I'm away from my PC for the holidays. You just want one opening banner? What should it say?
