    Alright well, I've been into GFX and random Forum art for quiet sometime. It's kinda hard to believe how much I've progressed.
    I try to date when my "best works of the month" are. I never delete any of my .psd's for I use them for distort tools,etc. but also just to check up on previous works and how I can improve.

    These were from works of every other month or so.

    Get ready for some epic lolz [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] .

    (I used GIMP previous to this)

    First getting used to PS and experimenting with new tools.

    Thanks guys [​IMG]. I'm experimenting with new ideas and tools all the time. I think it's the best way to learn how to use everything there is to PS and GFX in general.

    Good luck with the tutorial too Edhel [​IMG] .

    Woow. Damn is that amazing... I need to work on my skills xDD. I haven't touched Photoshop in months and am so lazy to re-install it! But still amazing work! I like it ^^. That 4th one, I got the same character I think... I will put the siggy up if I can find it.

    The second one caught my eye really fast. I like that one a lot ^^. And make a desktop background of the 3rd one... I will make it my desktop background xDD. 1280x1024px please! (lool. In your free time that is.)

    Well I thought that I'd show what I made using his tutorial to show how good it was. I didn't think I'd need a whole new thread just to show off that one sig lol.

    Question: How do you put arrows in your Hatsune signature? I've always wondered how people did that. Do you use the shape function?

    Wow, lots of posts xD. Thanks for all of the awesome feedback guys [​IMG].
    And don't worry about posting outcomes from the tutorial. It's great to see what people come up with.

    The c4d's could use a LITTLE work but other than that, it looks quiet impressive Rock Raiyu; great job ;D!
    As for the arrows, I think I used premade vector brushes.

    As for the wallpaper, I should have that .psd lying around somewhere lol. I'll try to crop and re size it for you guys if you really want it [​IMG].

    I used to have arrows... They were pre-made brushes for PS. Sadly... I lost all my brushes after a reformat of Windows D:

    you might want to concentrate on your colours a bit more, your newer ones are very drowned out. The Master chief one has a lot of potential though.

    Thanks for the tip [​IMG] ! My newer ones used a lot of black and white gradient maps so that's probably why.
    I'll try to loosen up on that to see if it helps.

    Btw, love your sprite sig ;D.

    Looks like I was wrong about the character in my siggy to the character in the 4th siggy of yours...
