Oh these are all awesome Gil! I love the colorization of Diane! You are soo good at graphics! :swoon: I was wondering how do you get that kind of smoky effet that you used for the colorization?

Thanks so much Elven Archer! :) That Diane colorization is actually about the only colorization I've done that's come out good :eyeroll: Anyway, I got that smoky effect by making a new layer and filling it with a gradient from a medium-ish blue to a light blue and set it on "Lighten". Then I used the burn tool to darken it some and lowered the opacity and desaturated it just a bit. I then copied all the layers and pasted them on top as a single layer (Ctrl + Alt + Shift + E in Photoshop) and set that layer to soft light ;) I hope that made sense! :P

Gil, your works are amazing! I love the vivid colors and they way your graphics simply seem to stand out without being overly excessive. Your borders are awesome as well, especially in your Diane Kruger colorization. Would you mind explaining briefly how you did that?

Thanks so much LDM and Riniel! :blush: :) :hug:

LDM - to make those borders, I copied my entire blend onto a new layer, then created a new layer under that one, and filled it with black/whatever color you want your border to be. Then go back to the top layer (the one that is your whole blend), and use the rounded rectangle tool to make a selection. Select > Inverse and Delete, and then you'll have a rounded border! :) I hope that made sense :P

Here's a wallpaper I made for the SC contest of David Krumholtz: ... holtz1.jpg

Gil, you are a true graphics genius! You like the song "Through Glass" don't you? I've seen the lyrics on two of your blends :P
