So I have been a bit busy off and on the Site with a working project to bring the Jedi up to their 100% Optimum of Awesomeness. However there is only so much one can work on one large project off and on and so during these breaks I am tweaking around Photoshop. After my comp Crashed I lost alot, and really good stuff. However it doesn't matter as it gave me a fresh start and I began relearning old things and adding onto new techniques. For the most part it humbled my skills once more but gave me a flashback. It is a good yet rough experience but hey I am learning nifty fun things.



So without further pause here it is the current little project.

P.S.: No I am not an Imperial or a Supporter... and If you believe so you are wrong for now <.< Do I have an excuse for making these? Errr... well not really but damn it is my business!!! So like all good children I have to rebel against the Parental Authority! Eat it Republic, but I love you!!! I am very sorry... u.u The bad Empire slipped me sweet delicious cookies and Slave Girls with all their Naughty Bits.



So that is all for now, I hope you can enjoy it. I think the Empire's symbol looks classier here. </div>

Wow. Really nice. I like the top one the best, probably because It doesn't include a character and could really see it being display on a massive banner at some Imperial Rally. I love the texture work, I have a hard time putting across different textures in my work (So I just avoid it <!--emo&::smile::--><img src='http://i5.ifrm.com/3768/2/emo/zz.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='zz.gif' /><!--endemo--> ) But it really looks like gold!

Yeah I really like to work on textures it is all a matter of a sense of lighting when it comes to Metallic material and other parts color and layer blends. Also using gradients with just a subtle role give it that Oompf you really need for kicks.



If you need a basis for Metals that are smooth and only need tweakings to be better you can use the Layer Styles that should be in that right side tab along side Color and Swatch, it says Style. Search around with them and use them as roots to understand layer textures and work upwards. When I found them out I began to add so much more. Borders and even Creations of Symbols of whatever look great.



Trial and Error is your best bet to learn. It is fun stuff. let's you find things Tutorials will never give you. Well I have read Tutorials but I never used them. They complicated things so I am like that guy who plays the guitar surprisingly well but has no idea what Quarter Note is or an A Scale Arpeggio. I play things by Eye and for now it works well for what I need lol.



However on note about the other comments thanks. Yeah the first one I actually made last but to play that role of being displayed at an Imperial convention. The others are just nice little tributes to Aeaolen and Roan. </div>
