hollywood i have a feeling there's a problem where you store your images... the one at the top of page 2 has changed to a copy of your later volley :P

maybe they have the same file name?

Awesome volley. I love the frosty blue back drop. Looks like snowflakes and tree-leaves. The whole color scheme is awesome. That is my favorite so far. I hope there was nothing embarssing in that text file you read :cap:. Thanks for signing my G-Book. You are too kind. For now, it is warm and sunny saturday morning. I think am going to go outside and play roller-hockey with my friends. I'll try to have a volley for you tonight.

Shure I want the psd, maybe I learn something from it ;). I really wanna know how to do all that repitition stuff. I think that is it really cool effect.

Thx, most color i changed with layer blending options


I hope there was nothing embarssing in that text file you read . Thanks for signing my G-Book. You are too kind.

Lol, no, it's a cool text, and nice G-Book. How you save the enteries btw ?


For now, it is warm and sunny saturday morning. I think am going to go outside and play roller-hockey with my friends. I'll try to have a volley for you tonight.

Here it rains, and it's cold, so will be sitting home the whole evening :mad: ah well, ill play some games


Shure I want the psd, maybe I learn something from it . I really wanna know how to do all that repitition stuff. I think that is it really cool effect.

Hmmm, since the zipped *.psd file is like 5 mb big I made a image that explains the repitition stuff. (You cant see it in the psd file anyway, I merged some of the layers)

A volley soon. I am taking my time on this one. I have a three day weekend and I have been spending most of my time outside. The weather in Colorado has been unsually warm. I am trying to find a new element that relates to the butterfly to add to my volley.

I_am_Tarzan
01-28-2003, 01:55 PM
Take all the time you need :cool:

Btw, that element, try a monkey :D :smoov:

OVER??!! of course not. Not until they feature us in the FK newsletter. Sorry about the delay. Tons of snow in Colorado. I have been out skiing, but I hurt my ankle. I am stuck inside for awhile. I apologize. I did not add a new element. I just left the butterfly and added a dorky backdrop. Sorry :(. But I think that you are a creative and innovative person. You should have no trouble finding a new element. Sorry about the delay. Sorry Again.

sorry sorry sorry sorry sorry sorry

come on, ya making me blush :D (flashkit needs a blush-emoticon !!)
Well, everybody is creative, i just throw some pics in my photoshop file and make them look good together.

Ya can expect my tennis ball within some days, first have to finish a project ;) cya then

I_am_Tarzan
02-07-2003, 05:09 PM
oh well, i finished it today. Wanted to try grunge feeling, how it's done, how to put emotions in it. It turned out pretty easy to do, and looks gr8 to (to myself anyway). Dunno, u guys tell me if this is a good grunge-style picture.

iLikePie
02-07-2003, 08:22 PM
if you mean trendy-style grunge, i wouldn't really say that's a particularly good example, because most trendy grunge at the moment is fairly dark, with lots of 'dirty' bits and those nocturna custom brushes that everybody uses, and everyone else can see where they've used them

having said that, i actually quite like the piece you've done. it's fairly well balanced and you've got some nice elements there. To make it better (imo) you could work on how the different elements work with each other - for example, the main woman on the right looks a bit out of place, as her 'edges' are too soft. She sorta looks like she's just been slapped on top of the picture. Also, a lot of trendy grunge uses lots of texture and depth in the background and stuff, so maybe you would put something to break up all the white?

anyway, i think it's a good start!

hey hollywood, i posted this to warn someone else in a different thread, and u could use it too :)

"also, in your own interest, it's best never to post your email address on a site, as some spam bots trawl through websites looking for spammy victims

if you must, you could try putting something in there like this:

youremailaddy@hotmailNOSPAM.com

then tell people to remove the nospam bit when they send you mail"

just another step you can take to *hopefully* get a bit less spam.
