It depends on what kinda background want. Do you want a background like your current, fully self created and colour/effects only? Or do you want an actual background, like a city?

The latter is much easier to start of with as a base, that way your signature won't look empty, and the render won't look like it's floating around in a wave of colour.

Just google cities or forests, or whatever you want the background to be - would be my advice. With that, you can crop it to your likings, and blend the stock in. However, if it's anime, I'd go for a cartoon background/city, etc.

Good luck, though! Boco and I are working on some tutorials, backgrounds tuts included!
