Show off your photoshop skills here. Show some cool tricks, banners, avatars, random art, and anything made with photoshop that you think is cool. Also come here for help with the program. I am decent at it. I used it to make the banner for the zelda marathon at this point and time, and my last banner of the fake sora ipod ad.

This is my sig on SmashBoards. I made it by myself, and I also sent it in as fan art for the marathon _awesome_
I know it's not very good. I'm getting better, though

Great job White mage! I would lower the distortion though. Check out my new avatar of anit sora. I took a picture of anti, added some effects, cropped, and cleaned it up a little using some filters.

Nice KillerWombat, I really like that. and lol, Ninboy...

anyway, hmm...I use the polygonal lasso ALOT. in fact, I use it more than any other tool. It's great for blocking out the basic colors of your piece, and for applying highlights / shading.

heres my stuff so far: viewtopic.php?f=41&t=1803 (http://forums.thespeedgamers.com/viewtopic.php?f=41&t=1803)

Thanks, and anyway, if anybody needs me to make an avatar or a banner, I can help out. I am not the best, but I can take a crack at whatever you want me to do. When you have asked others, and they were unable, I am always here to dissapoint you. lol Seriously though, I will help if you want.

I made an awsome banner for the marathon. Feel free to use it. Just give me credit.
How it was made:
To make the grass, I just dotted a ton of different shades of green, made a simple mask to get the brush black shade effect, then deleted the mask. To make the sky, i just made a bunch of random stripes of different shades of blue, then used the smudge tool. To get the mr saturn, I made 3 copies of the mr saturn pic. The bottom layer, I just used to copy. After that, it was unneeded. The middle layer I painted the background on, and the top layer with the plain mr saturn, I applied a simple black mask, then used the white paint brush to uncover it. It is hard to explain, but it gave the glowing effect I wanted. Then I just saved it as a png file and then uploaded it to photobucket.

Thanks! I also made a new profile pic. All that I did was resize a cloud picture, smudge the background, striped with the paint brush under my name, and then added the text of my name. Very simple.
