Thanks Helen! Usually with sigs I try to go for the scary/bad <Family-friendly forum.> renders. So that time I decided to switch it up a bit. Glad you liked it!

Update: My SOTW entry, no stocks and no renders:

I forgot to mention that I did use a few steps from Welshblue's wood tutorial.

Thanks Chrisco, I did use a few steps from Welshblue's tutorial, but I can honestly say that most of it was just me messing around. My current sig was made solely on my own, and looks good as a border. But I couldnt get the background to look good and the text was blending in a lot, so I settled for a different background. This new one was a rematch!

Thanks Axle for the comment and for stopping by! :D

Thats OK Barbieq, I have been so busy, I often forget what forums I have commented on and which I still need to comment on. :roll: I feel like I am loosing control on reality! Anyway, thanks for the comments! always appreciated!

Sorry for the DP,

Version two of the wooden sig, I tried to make it look even more realistic.

and an apple made using this tutorial. ~895-graphics on DA used this tutorial and made a great picture, so I gave it a try in PDN. I only used photoshop to warp the apple at the end of the tutorial. I love photoshop's transform tools.

Sorry, forgot to mention that the lightning is a stock (a couple of stocks) and I think there is one nebula too, I have to look at the PDN again...

Thanks Helen! For the last two, I used PDN, of course ;). I forgot to mention that the lightning is a stock and I think there is one nebula...

OK, sorry for the delay, but life got in the way.

I made these two to look like the previous album covers for Celldweller

some examples

The lightning bolts are stocks and there is a nebula stock as well. I started this one a while ago, and there are so many layers that I lost track of what was what.

Thank you both, Chrisco and Barbieq, it means a lot!

I know it Barbieq, sometimes I set out with a goal in mind, figure I cant make it 100% PDN, try using a stock and it just doesnt work. The next time I open the file and start working all PDN, it comes out great. :roll: I guess thats a good thing. I have not come across a method of creating lightning that I like yet, in tutorials and my own tinkering. When I do though, I might revisit this...

Thanks Julio! Its really cool to think about what a future album cover would be for a specific music artist. It gets your creative juices flowing!

Here is another 'black star' picture. It was meant to be a wallpaper, but... I forgot to change the size when I started. So it stayed 800x600. I am fairly disappointed at that, but there was nothing I could do about it by the time I realized it.

Edit: I would like to mention that it is 100% PDN!

Thank you Chrisco! yes, it is 100% PDN. And it was soo hard to keep it that way.

Thank Helen! :D your comments are always great to read! We also need the hug smiley...

Thanks Julio for the comment and your advice! Much appreciated!
