    looks good, only thing i would change is the edge. The way it gets cut off instead of finishing itself off is a major turn off for me =/

    do you mean the mist effect arround the edge or the horrible grey splodge arround it that you are not supposed to be seeing?

    If you do mean the mist effect itx exactly what i was going for.

    ctrl+click background layer>edit>stroke>2px black>inside = boring imo (not meant to be an attack on your sig, just a generalisation. I like to do something a bit different with my edges rather than just put a border round it.)

    The edges IMO need a lot of work. But more importantly do you think it looks as good or better than others you have seen? As long as your happy with it, it doesnt matter.

    I think it would look better being more solid/stright under your name with less "mist effect". Just a bit more edge to it. I would give it a 6/10.

    Cool well thanks for the possitive feedback. I do appreciate that the edges are not gonna be everyones cup of tea, and so far that seems to be the only negative anyone has picked out. So all in all I take it as a win :D

    im saying the image is supposed to fit in a rectangle like mine, wel at the edges there are parts where the grey hits the border and is then cut off leaving a flat edge

    but who says its "supposed to"? just because something is normally done in a certain way does not mean it shouldnt be done any other way.

    The only reason I complain about the mist is because of the strait lined edges that it seems to want to fit into where the mist cuts off unnaturally.

    yea i totally get that, it was just me experimenting with a new technique, im happy with the overall result but i do agree the edges could be better done, im sure with a bit more practice at it ill have it nailed :)

    The problem was the edges were something i worked on after the whole thing wad finished and it was a case of an idea coming to me too late to effectively put it into the design, i tried anyway but there was only so much i could do with it without losing some of what i feel are the better aspects of the peice.

    Not bad at all, I love the obscure look, nothing better than breaking the top off the box everyone else blindly sits in.
