    Well this is my first shot at Photo Shop. Tell me what you think. Hope you like it :) Btw, if you guys have any suggestions to improve the image, please feel free to say them.

    Edit: I accidently removed the image from the site I was hosting it on.

    well i redid the original and i think it came out better.

    Edit: I accidently removed the image from the site I was hosting it on.

    I would like to put a nice frame or border around it. Does anyone know how to do that? I would really like some feedback :)

    Very nice for your first attempt at PS Drakon. :)

    I'd change the font to something more suited to the lyrics though ;)

    how about a layered effect, make several layers transparent and over lapping.....the font is okay perhaps but the purple, you could really go further with it too....but keep working it man...

    Well the background layer didn't too long to do, after a few tries that is. It was really a matter of finding the perfect font and making adjustments and such. I would say overall maybe an hr, maybe less.

    Here's the tutorial I used: http://www.tutorialized.com/tutorial/Spiral-Vortex/5589

    Man...I sure was looking to see what the "Purple Haze" would look like after seeing your other work, can't you re-host it and re-post it? :confused:

    Edit: Oh, there it is on page two, nice stuff. :D
