those are awesome, they really look cool as the thumbs, when they all have the same color overlay (is that the right term?), i've only been messing around with photoshop for a week or so, ive had it before but i only used it once or twice and that was with a step by step tuturial opened up in firefox. i guess my stuff isnt art, but i didnt know what else to call it at the moment. but yeah, your stuff looks really good. i had awal make me a sig over the summer, his work is amazing. so is the other emp gfx people around here. i see their stuff i wonder how they did it , how long it took, how much work and redoing stuff over and over to get to look just right. like awal's new sig, i love that torn, tattered look, i dont dig the color much but as long as he likes it. personally, i dont like it when too many colors are used, to me it seems like theres too much going on, i like sticking to as few as colors as possible, stick with 2-3 colors, like the brighteyes one, i used mostly black and pink, but i through the white in around the orb to add some accent (or what ever youd call it) so it wasnt just pink to black. i like how that one turned out, i made the other the night before but i though it looked too plain, so i came home and reworked it, reversed the colors on the orb, moved it to the corner, and added the white.
well thanks for the input, i guess ill have to start messing with outher stuff other than halo renders (the one was star fox though) but all the sigs so far were for our halo clan's forum, so i though a halo theme would work. the star fox was done earlier today, i had the tribal shape down in about 5 different layers of brushes, i would put a grey one down, use a gaussian blur, then make a new layer, use a slightly smaller brush and a darker grey, then i did that a few times, merged all the layers of it, the turned it to chrome. well later on guys, thanks again
