I'm a 19-year-old Canadian university student, former Photoshop Touch user learning how to use GIMP. One day I will somehow make bright graphics without them turning into dark graphics.

Ooh, I like the darkness of your gallery. It's nice and creepy. And that cartoon-ish effect is also awesome. ^_^
Downloading various fonts could help you figure something out about the text, I bet. ;-)

Keep up the great work!

Thank you! I'll probably see about downloading some fonts and really working on text when I get home for the summer, instead of tossing stuff together while procrastinating papers, lol. Once again, thanks!

I loooooove that Merida sig because of the contrast of the colours and the dark background!

I'm also really digging the animation on your banner!!

Hi Little Buddy!

 

First of all, I love love love your new gallery title! I super believe in Tad Cooper too (as you know ;))! I really like how quickly you're learning and getting better. You can see that so much with some of the newer things in your gallery and I can't wait for you to improve more and more. I know you normally do textures, but the composition on that chapter image with the stock is so good! You should definitely do more with stock! It seems to be coming almost naturally to you. I also like that you've already tried out animation. I know how frustrating it can be, but yours is so smooth and works nicely! I think my favourite thing in your gallery is your top banner (+here). It may just be because I love bright things, but you really managed to bring the whole thing to life. I also love love love the text on it, especially the '30 days' part! You nailed the skin tones and the comp on it too! I demand you make more banners, even though you said you don't really like them ;)

 

You have a really great start and I can't wait to see how far you go! 

 

-Amy

Heya, big buddy!

 

Thank you  :loves: I can't help but improve, I've got a great teacher ;) I'm definitely warming up to stock and banners, and once again, thank you so much!

Hi Shan! 

 

Thought I would finally stop by and check out your work since I've been seeing it pop up in the BBLB! 

 

I like everything you have here so far, but I especially love the first signature, your banner and your blend! 

 

The text on your first signature is so well done. I only dream about text like that on my graphics! Everything blends so well together. 

 

The coloring on your banner is awesome. I love that it really pops and catches your attention. With all your other graphics being darker, this one really shows your a range at doing something different. 

 

Your blend is amazing. It's simple, but really well done.

 

Overall, I think you show really great choices in the way you create your graphics and I think while you have some other things to try, you've got a great grasp. I look forward to seeing what else you come up with!!

hello shan!!! i'm niki  :happy:  i think i've seen you around the forums but i've never properly come down to say hello!

 

just wanna tell you that your gallery is so colourful and pretty. i especially love that serenity sig bc the monochrome is very very well done. and that moon girl blend is very pretty!

 

i like all the pretty greens that you have in some of your graphics! you work with stock very well (much better than i did as a MA, that's for sure).

 

keep up the great work!

 

love from niki :loves:

You have pretty amazing pieces in your gallery, Shan! I really like your blend the most! I think your text needs a little work, but it's still pretty good. I'm here if you'd like help with Gimp, since I see that you said, you're learning how to use Gimp. :)

Hey! Rodrigo here! I love love your chapter image! You'll have to show me how you do that beautiful blending! Not to mention your banners! I love the minimalist look!
