After achieving my short-term goals with this image, I decided to surround it with a full-fledged webbish layout, which totally ruined the effect I was going for, so now it's a stand-alone......thing. We'll just call it a profile header.
I wish the original image was bigger (and better, in terms of pixels), but this was the best candidate for a Slash photo manipulation.
Sooner or later I'll learn that quality images are the only way to go, hopefully by then I'll have a much nicer computer to generate much clearer images. Perhaps by THEN, I'll have more design software and experience.
Building blocks my friends, it all starts with tiny building blocks...
Time: 30 minutes.
The shape brushes are all from DA, and the abstract brushes (the ones you can't see, unless you have a damn good eye) are mine, there's also a grunge brush in there that is mine as well.
Here's the Googled Slash image:[link]
Thanks for viewing.
