Thanks all, glad you like them.
No Caplan, I'm defo not an artist - pro or otherwise (oh maybe a pi$$ artist is all!)
MrKeeg, the images are all "borrowed" from the web.I figure that since it's not for profit, no harm done.
Orfy. instructions would be really difficult to do for me - it's mostly just trial and error, playing with it and so on until I achieve reasonable results. I think it's easy to se the improvements I've made as time goes on
There are tutorials on the web though which I've used - eg the brushed metal in Binge, the flames in the Duvales.
I can spend quite a bit of time playing with them, it's by no means a quick process (it took me AGES to seperate the devil-girl from the original background she came with!)
Really, just play with it and see how it goes. I mean what's the worst that can happen?
