In Photoshop, yes they do. In Paint.NET, it's harder. Typically it's a combination of dents, clouds, and smudge, at least for me.

Not forgetting Madjik's polar transformations plugin and possibly cloud brushes. InterfaceLift has an amazing one made in Photoshop. I tried to make one that looked similar but it didn't come out well (to say the least).

I dunno about that Simon - seems to me that one got more hype than it deserved - it was blurry, the zoom blurring / splinters didn't work - I think there's better stuff out there :)

Your attempt isn't too far off from the original, in my opinion - just needs some color and lighting tweaks (all post-work stuff anyway)

Funny you should say that - I was just messing around with that for some stars the other day :P

I like your new sig by the way, very fresh.

That's not the argument any one of us is making - I think the general thing we're going for is that clouds are versatile as an effect.

I must now declare that I despise Green Day. It's not just their political/religious beliefs that I don't support, though. From an artistic point of view, they're an empty void composed of a repeating four chord progression.

Why do I mention this now? I'm learning the chords for Yesterday by the Beatles. I'm going to die, twice; once out of awe, and again out of frustration. The series of chords are so intricate and complex... I'm using chords I never thought I'd have to use!

It goes something like F, Em7, A7, Dm, Dm7, Bm, C, C7, F, C, Dm7, G7, Bb, F.... for the first three lines! For Green Day's Good Riddance/Time of Your Life? G, C, D, repeat two times, Em, D C,G, repeat. That's 90% of the song.

The Beatles can be held accountable for attrocities like that aswell dont forget :P . But Green Day do have innovative idea's and can still be extremely popular. How many progressive punk bands do you hear in a top 10 Countdown? I've never heard anyone except for Billie-Joe Armstrong that uses 20 chords strung together as a solo, tis cool. I do see where your coming from though sort of. It's just a bazillion chords doesn't make a song any better than a 3 or 4 chord progression, just less tedious for the bass player. :P

Chords are my friend :) And I totally agree! But unfortunately many of today's listeners don't want technically awesome songs, they want ultra-catchy and repetitive songs.

Their 90's stuff was good. But they just could not have kept that same old sound that 1000000's of bands had now adopted. The direction they went was good, really developing unique concept music, which not enough popular artists do. Emo? They have political and religious messages in them, no emoism :P .
