this is what I said in entire quote
only thing I'd add would be your initals. but then again maybe not.

its your avatar I just thought you have such great text in your sig it would make a good match to the sig.

cheers

8/10. I like it a lot (I'm guessing photoshop?), but it's a bit blurry

nope all paint.net. just learned how to do the orb and cube and shadow and background text and gradiants from tuts this past month.

think its blury because I made it much larger and then lost a lot due to resizing and saving as a jpg.

I know what you mean. The day I signed up, I resized the sig I had been working on for 3+ months to 500x150. It came out so blurry, I've replaced it with my current "BETA" sig

Yep, I don't have an avatar because I don't know how to make one

its a wee little baby sized picture! :) 100 x 100 I think uploaded to something like photobucket then link to thru profiles. ( hint make your canvas size a bit bigger and scale back size using image resize button....just don't go too much bigger or you loose a lot of detail when you size down)

give her a go pick a tut and just make anything you';ll be addicted same as the rest of us in about 10 mins.

good luck on your first avatar. the hardest part is making a choice of what to put up.

and don't worry the critique is part of the learning process. a good learning experience and a way to sharpen your technique skills.

Firefly 9/10 love the chrome circle gotta try this any tips.

Yata: really cool, can appear a bit too blurry but I think it works well, 8 or 9/10.

These two I've been working on are variations of my current one, but please bear in mind that the picture of the dude is not mine, but the effects created with them are done by me.

This one, as you can see, utilises the antique picture tut by Helio.

This one did use the principle of the 3D box by BuzzKill with a small twist, I do prefer this one.

@Myrddin: I would go for the antique one, thought I don't know what to rate it.

@Firefly: 9.8/10 It looks really nice, but:

The areas in the white rectangle are the only things bothering me. I think it's a little too much. Maybe if you do a radial blur or something, I would give it a 10.

@Myrddin:

Do you still have the layered PDN for the antiqued one?

There is one thing I'd try messing with on that one, if you do: the shadow under the page curl effect. Take the Gradient tool in Transparency mode, and fade the shadow out to the upper-left, so that the shadow is less prevalent near the fold. Right now, it just looks like there's a triangle hovering over the corner, but with a fade in there, it'd look more 3D-esque.

Other than that, I like how it looks! 8.2/10

Both Yata is right about the affiliation, and Extra right about Merlin from Arthurian legend. See, my name inspires education :D

CMD I do and that's an excellent suggestion. There was always something niggling me about that shadow but couldn't put my finger on it so I shall try that tomorrow or hopefully tonight with any luck. Thanks again.

BTW, great orb 9+/10
