Ok, so I think I've got the firey meteor text thing to the point where I could make a tutorial out of the process (if it seems worthy of one).

So far I've got two methods of making the "fire". Both very similar, but one's a little longer (step wise) than the other. Can someone help me decide which of these looks better?

@ verndewd - Looks pretty neat. xD

@wither: I dunno. Personally, I like how the one on the right is styled. it kinda makes it look like u burned off the "l" which comes before the e, though (not that it's a bad thing. Burning stuff is good. It says "subtle", right? Or is it shuttle? My glasses aren't working as good as it should. I think I need new ones..)

Ok, I think it should be more readable. I used a little less motion blur than last time and tried focusing the flames lower.

It says 'subtle'. Mainly because I can't think of anything less subtle than a meteor crashing to the ground in a fiery explosion. >:]

Yay irony!

the right one is better IMO...

It's moving and burning, it can't be perfect...Let's make a tut to share your method, you'll have more advices back!

Chris2fer your chrome is looking great

Something I have been working on. The reindeer was something I painted on sweat shirts for the kids at Christmas a long time ago. I feel like I have seen him just like that standing in the road with the lights reflecting off the snow. He is not done.

@janetsue - I like the deer. He seems regal and important.

@Madjik, Panhead, david.atwell, worldnewser - following your suggestion of the right one, I based the tutorial off of that.

The version on the left was just an elliptical selection instead of an S3D dome.

@ JanetSue --> Thanks for the comment on Spike (the fish)

I Love the Reigndeer! Did you draw the deer free hand or is this something you had in a file somewhere? I agree that is looks like when you stand on the steps and the light reflects on the falling snow......... kinda like it is outside right now!

first ever cd so go figure :P I like how you got a crumpled metal shine there, but honestly the jaggies really detract from what could be a really cool wallpaper. I dont say that often as a matter of fact I think its the first aa annoyance I have ever experienced here.

Most likely due to the fact that it takes so much away from an other wise excellent scheme. As a thumb you think wow thats cool and then you zoom and,,,, Need to blur some edges there is too much cool going on not to.

could you throw 2 cents into the chrome 101 tut? Maybe something simple and unrevealing? Youre one of the folks persuing chrome so it would be cool to have a couple simple ideas that dont reveal everything about your technique.

i did use aa on this thats the funny thing about it but for the jaggys on the metal i like it that way means keep your hands away from sharp edges lol as soon as i figure on copy each level to my chrome i will sometimes i get it too work right sometimes i don't it's a freak of nature.

Here is a pretty neat-looking...portal that somehow originated from the Mandelbrot Fractal:

I can't remember the exact steps but it was sure as heck long to make! :D
