    Hello, sorry I wasn't here to answer on time.

    All thank you for for replies, thanks you moderator for approving, I am honored to be in aid.


    Serbianbeast - Another thing, Now you know how to use photoshop tools, but you need to know the visual rules in order to make fast and right decisions.

    Here are couple things to keep in mind.

    1 Because the image is so small, try to make more contrast, bright colors, and shiny glows. And most of ,Magic the gathering cards, for example, are very colorful just because the image is so small.

    2 Also, If the object is dark, then make the background light! And if the object is light, then make the background dark! It is simple concept that can be proven by placing an object on the table and moving the light source around to FRONT, BACK, SIDE of the object, and record the relationships between the object and the background at 3 different scenarios.

    3 And when glow is added, make sure it fades in or out slowly. Because it the glow stops sharply, then it is not a glow anymore.


    Looks good. Keep working. Everybody else, Good Luck.

    Hey, sorry for posting here on this old thread, but i really need help.

    I want to watch the video from CR but the dumb FileFactory says :

    "Sorry, there are currently no free download slots available on this server.

    Please try again later, or you can upgrade to FileFactory Premium below for instant access."


    If anyone could upload this video on rapidshare or somewhere else i would be so happy!

    Thanks in advance.

    Greetings dear Crazyrussian,

    I am simply wondering what wacom tablet you are using? I am about to buy one, but cannot make up my mind. I'm thinking maybe a Bamboo, or an Intuos4, or Intuos3 because of the price. What do you suggest and what are you using?

    Thanks for the tutorial and the reply!

    Yours Truly,
    Princess Chizume of Clan HoA

    A tablet is basically something that allows you to draw onto a pad and have it show on your computer.

    Drawing by hand is much easier than drawing by mouse, so it makes it a lot easier to draw/color etc..
