    This one reminds me of all those corn fields alien hype crap:

    This one reminds me of the matrix but with a different color:

    Just delete this one off your list:

    I would have to say I like the cornfield one best out of all those.

    yeah that matrix looking is matrix. I found a tut for it but for some odd reason I couldnt finish it and couldnt animate it. Its suppose to scroll down like the matrix but eehh whatever. Yeah that "cornfield" backgorund was called the evil background. It took me a good min to get it looking like that ewww *swipping sweat from face*.

    I'm trying to remember what was Kamino in that movie. Its been a while since I seen it. Well at least I didnt do a terrible job as a n00b then. I guess I can be a little proud of myself. Now time to put something on the cornfield one. Your're right Death Dream that swirl one look alright when I was doing it but I dont know I dont like it anymore. Thanks for the input guys I'll have final products a little later for you to look at. :D:tup:

    You should really start gathering some skills by now ugyura, these signature images look like if they have been generated by a cheap Seamless texture generator. Without any offences.

    The sig images are what were they called grange or something like that. What would you have me start on some super hard thing for a noob. That was hard enough for now.well I love this starwars character and all I did was add an axe to him and a custom back ground and any way he best resembles my inner character and plus this image is no where to be found unless you get the full body for that is. There is very few pics of this guy. And btw I havent gotten to the avatars section of pixel2life. You know this crap takes time damn. I mean I just got finish with a lot of sig tuts so quit bustin my balls okay. You know it takes time to go through a section on there Kantham especailly considering I'm a n00b. And not to mention I work for a freaking living and I want to do a little gaming. Here in the past 2/3 days I havent gotten to play much becuase of work, help running a clan (I'm the leader to 4 or so games, and website matinence) and trying to get some rest. I have to have gaming because thats all there is to do around here for me anyway. Like I said on the rate the sig topic when I get more time I'll start on the other sections GOD impatiant people. btw Kantham what do you think I been using, huh? That site and this one is bookmarked.

    http://thedark.dk/photoshop/

    and also what about the other people that uses stuff like screenshots and so on on there sigs/avatars you going to tell them to stop too mister prodigy. The mass majority of the people are using some sort of screen from some where in their crap on the BuF site. Some may be well hidden amongst the texures and what not that they added.

    Im just giving you advices Ugy, the desision is up to you. If you want to start learning photoshop the way it can be used or if you just was to make a red background with 2 Lens Flare filters behind it and 2 characters.

    [​IMG]

    Just take this one, it looks streched like crazy, just giving you feedback, i don't know how you made this but i have tried many texture generators in the past and that's the kind of result they gave me.

    Don't assault a helping person ugyura. There was no bad intentions in Kantham's post, no need for that kind of personal attacks.

    Photoshop is a way to express yourself, but to do that you need to learn to use it. Using it is hard to learn, but with years of trial and error you WILL get it.
    It has taken me several years to reach my skill with Photoshop. It isn't perfect by any means and I still learn. So keep on practicing and keep at it. Only way forward. And no there is no shortcuts to learn Photoshop.

    I'm sorry if I came off mean or mad or something, it's just how you phrased your advice it sounded offensive to me. I really tried hard to get those sig backgrounds. And considering I've only been using photoshop for a total of like 3 days I have really picked up anything that good yet. And remember that 2 character lens flare thing was my first attempt though just the first :D

    yeah I know rex like I said it just sounded offensive. I know it takes a few years to get things in "crunk order", so I'm 20 now so about 22 I should be experianced enough to tango with old Kantham here.

    But like I said I'm sorry if I jumped all over Kantham. It was just that Iworked on the so hard to understand what the dudes were saying in there tuts and then doing it.

    also if one of you 2 could help me that matrix one I have up there its supposed to be animated (gif form) but can get it to work. theres one part in the tut I couldnt get to work. it was saying to http://www.newtutorials.com/matrix-background-tutorial-01.htm "Then go to Edit > Transform > Flip Vertical." but when the time came to do that it was non-selectable any ideas? btw I did everything it said in the tuts (more than 5 times) but no go.

    btw this is the last half of it http://www.newtutorials.com/matrix-background-tutorial.htm

    I wouldnt really worry if youve only been using it for a few days, it takes a bit to really get a grasp of how everything works. If it werent for layer effects my stuff would look pretty shoddy. Eventually I hope to get into some art classes but thats a ways off if it ever happens.

    Anyways I'm posting a "few" links that have helped me out at the bottom of this post. One thing I'd recommend is buying at least 1 photoshop book (hopefully for the version you have installed), also every once in a while I'll pic up a photoshop magazine. Most of the stuff in the magazines are way above my level but thats the only way to learn new stuff really.

    A few of the magazines I would recommend are..
    Advanced Photoshop
    Photoshop User
    Adobe Photoshop
    Imagine FX (this one covers way more than photoshop, I think I buy it for the artwork)

    Also it shouldnt take you 2 years to get reasonably good at using photoshop. Here is a link of my first skin. While the end product is nothing great it does show LOTS of improvement. http://forums.beyondunreal.com/showthread.php?t=161997&page=2

    Also a link to some (incomplete) tutorials Ive worked on (they mostly relate to skinning but still help with organizing things in ps) http://www.geocities.com/benjamintilford/Unreal2004/Tutorials/TutorialMain.html

    Internet links: (I copied these out of my bookmarks so there are probably some random missplaced links in there and of course they arent really organized)

    Hmm not bad Ugyura. That weapon on the right looks a bit outta place.
    Try getting another GoW character in there. Make sure they face in towards the sig, like the guy on the left.
