Lots of good stuff happening here lately

@PyroTechniques--- I like it :) It's nice and shiny

@janettsue--- Nice design I especially like how you incorporated it into a gift box. The ribbon on the box is pretty cool too :)

CC would be to:

clean up the edges & side of the pick guard.

Make the wammy bar connection more detailed and change the width of the neck and keep the strings straight.

Overall gooood work, :D

Oh, add some neck inlays too. :)

That's looking really good LJXD! I would displace the shadow of the pole by saving the snow texture as a png and then running Alpha Displacement on displacement.

Ok, here's the end product (click for larger image):

I have a 1280X800 version, but Photobucket won't allow anything that large, for whatever reason.

Not quite sure what to call it yet, any ideas?

Wow this is outstanding!!!

Now how about something ridiculously simple like "WindowMac"

@LJXD: I really like your snowy image. So peaceful and beautiful.

@Topezia: I really like the work you put into your images. Splendid and outstanding work!

I visit this part of the forum, but never leave any messages. I'm kind of a mystery viewer. I thought that this might be a good time and say how awesome everybody's work is here aside from the galleries! I don't want to spoil the surprises when I click on someone's gallery and then say, "Oh, I already saw that." I like to keep to keep the images a surprise, but yet, these are just too good to miss.

Stunning! I'd say this is a magnificent pic. I'd certainly love a tut on making this.

(IMO) I'd love a tut ...

barkbark00: It looks so good!! Come on everyone, you know it does. I say that there are three "yesses" to post a tut on your piece. Please?!

Excellent lightsaber bb00, very realistic metal you've got going on there.

You could try one of the curved handles - it'd be a bigger challenge but I think would look very awesome.

Great job bb00 - as always. :)

This time i wouldn't ask for a tut, as it seems simple, but time-consuming to do. I reckon you used Ash's chrome method, a lot of :AlphaChannel: gradients, and a hell of a lot of the line tool :P . Great job again!
