Can I just say....WOW! :drop: Your graphics are amazing! I totally agree with contour, you are totally not a beginner ;}
My favourite would have to be, well I actually have quite a few favourites, but I love your Taylor Swift blend, & your 200x200 icons XD
Not going to lie your amazing at blending! :D
Can't wait to see more XD

You're a beginner? When I started out, I wasn't this good! I love everything here on your gallery, but I think my favorites have to be your 'the jungle' banner, the first icon set, and your 'part of me' signature. The colors are all so pretty. :happy: Good job, and I'd love to see more from you!

Hi! I love the gallery! I understand why everyone keeps saying you couldn't possibly be a beginner - your work is much better than most beginners. :)
You've got a great set of graphics here. I think your best pieces have got to be the set of four icons (Zoe/Nina/etc).
The ' freedom' and 'colour wheel' banners are really well done also.
The blends are great, you should just tinker with the hard cutting on Taylor's hair a bit more, and on Harry, and you're good.
I adore the autumn rose CI, you seem to be good at CI's.
(Personally, I can't make CI's to save my life.)
For your signatures, the sunshine one is my favourite.
I love the work. Keep it up and you'll be promoted in no time!

whoa what a beautiful gallery you have here! I have to say firstly, I just LOVE your icons, and your current one that your using and your sig are both lovely :) I think your the opposite of me, your a total stock person and Im so jealous at how well you can use it in your graphics :happy: your banners are one of your biggest strengths, they're all so lovely with great composition and colouring too :sean: Your 'part of me' signature is stunning and I especially love your gallery header too! Your a very talented artist x

Hey there! very beautiful gallery :)
I especially like your freedom banner<3 composition and text are lovely and work very well with the composition :)
For the icons - great use of font and textures! very nice.
The sunshine signature has got to be my favorite out of the sigs, the coloring is amazing! the whole thing is SO beautiful.
You're very good at using stock, I think you could experiment a bit more out of your comfort zone though, as it's a great way to improve, but well, everyone has things that he sticks to ;)
Again - you have a great gallery, I'm looking forward to seeing more stuff :)

Hey! thanks so much for dropping by :) :blush: stocks are a bit of my comfort zone so i'm trying to start using textures more and experimenting with simplicity XD i think i really need to go out of my comfort zone for composition :P Thanks so much for the lovely comment <3

You're a beginner? LIES. :P

I can't believe that you only started a month ago, and I can't wait to see where you will be a month later! ^_^ Don't be afraid to experiment and see where it takes you, but you seem to work well with both stock and textures. :D

Super quick critique: watch your blending and image quality. :)

Can't wait to see more from you :dumbles:

LOL you should see the first thing that i made. now that's embarrassing :P i guess it's because i've been lurking around here for a while but never dared touch photoshop :hide:
ah blending will always be the death of me, stupid hard cuts :mad: but i figured out how to use layer masking now so we're slowly becoming friends :thumbup: yeah i'm weird :P i'll be sure to watch out for the things you pointed out :)
thanks for dropping by :happy:

Hi Grace. I'm here for the crit. :) I hope this will help. :)

You really have good start in here. You've got a good grasp on your basics and for starters, you're so good. *jealous*

But anyways, just look out for you blending on some like the one of your MA challenge entry. It is good, but the girl's hair looked bit blurred that it had small black halos. Your hardcut on Josh is so good though. :) Again, watch out on your blending- in most of your CI's it's a bit noticeable. :)

I really envy your talent. Your blends are to die for, just a bit of tweak on Harry's hair though.

Watch out for image quality, I'm not sure if it's the B/W tweaks you've made or the images are just LQ, but anyhow, make sure you use HQ images. (I should speak, I don't really use HQ images when I first started :P)

Your signatures are really goo. I love your current signature. That's my favorite. Plus your icons. XD

I feel like I'm repeating myself already so yeah, I'll just leave. I'll come back yeah? xD Too great not to come back. xD
