I need some new techniques

Postby Guru13 » Fri Nov 10, 2006 8:41 am

i simply use gradients over the render with some different stocks as backgrounds and while alot of the time it comes out looking alright it gets boring any ideas, and no I don't want to use brushes. thanks.


if anyone was confused, this is what my latest looks like, that is the technique I used on it.

Why don't you like to use brushes, Just curious.

Not really, it's just a matter of using them so that others can't really tell that you used them and using them in moderation. ;-D

The best advice I can give is to explore a site like DeadlyFireGFX to learn new stuff. Then go to a site w/ real experienced gfx makers like BBallCentral, and get some c+c or just admire the amazing work. Not sayin to leave the Cafe, and I'm sure you won't, but these sites will improve your GFXing.
