Image Hospital: Help With Image Problems Here!

Thanks, I forgot to explain why the road sign was transpartent...other than the fact that I didn't want to loose all of the 'hills' in the background, it's also that way because it's being used on another site as a profile body. I didn't feel like fooling around with glossy buttons atm, so I left the whole thing like that.

Here's a link to see the profile.

Also, do not fear...the playlist isn't on Auto set, lmao.

Here's just the road sign.

I made this image a couple of days ago and now I'm out of inspiration. I need some feedback on the background and some ideas for the switch.

Highlight of glass need to be bent, distortion of background doesn't look right(don't use wavy lines, try lens or bulge), as for button...You have your imagination on your side, yes?

Oh, and give the lamp shadows.

Get a better hair brush for her, and better shampoo / conditioner would help also. :lol:

Would something like this work?

Looks nice, did you change the brush in smudge to spray paint brush.

Let me preface by saying this wasn't my corny idea...I have a friend who works with Catholic youth and begged me for a favor.

What I need help with is how to add the gray shadows to the letters I've put in. I'm having a hard time keeping the curves crisp like the stock image.

Any advice?

Edit: Here's an example of what I'm getting if you look at the first O; this is with an insanely long list of steps including duplicating the layer, darkening it, cropping it, feathering, cursing...

You can try line tool and curve it if needed to outline the gray parts.. then fill the inside of the outline you just made.

Wilco. I had cropped with the line tool, but hadn't thought of using the line itself. Why do anything the easy way? :roll:

Thanks, Ash.

Edit: Much better. Ta.

On the planets, I can't get the white outline away on the shadow side. Please help.

This hasn't really happened before when I make planets.

Yeah I tried that. I think I found my problem... does this look better? (They're different, but I made it in the same way.)

Hi guys, I've been toying around with an image and just can't be satisfied with it.

The image:

It's alright for now, but I was inspired by and shooting for something... less blurry, more red, and glossy/laser-ish. It almost looked like the entire phoenix was a single thick, glossy, laser-like segment. It looked like the phoenix was drawn out of a high intensity laser. I really liked the look of that... any suggestions for doing something similar?

That actually looks fairly close to what I was aiming for... looks like the yellow/orange layers are helping with it. I'll give a try, thanks!

Edit: using that plugin, I am getting nothing close
