hey King... you got me laughing with your post but am actually amazed that you were able to come up with a nice, good sig even if you got lost following the tut. ;-D

at least now, we can see your player's face and you are able to apply some lighting effect in that sig. very good work! ;-D
just keep practicing and practicing and play around with the blending options and other special effects. don't worry about the text for now as am sure you would be able to make an improvement on this too.

i dunno how to explain my tut in more details as am not a very good tutor really but i will try and just PM you the answers k.

Madas I honestly think that to someone who knows SOMTHING about photoshop your tut is probably the bomb diggety!

I thought I was learning but I really have a loooonnnng way to go.

Any advice you or anyone else wants to share is a very welcome thing!!
Thank you again!

Hey man, that looks pretty good. I would suggest making another layer of the player at the top that isn't as faded out so the sig doesn't look so blurry. ;-D

yep, have your original player render atop or you could apply sharpen on your last player render.

i was also thinking that the player image might have become blurry when you resized it... to remedy this, apply sharpen.
