Holy JitterJutters Batman! Here I was thinking I was bad for using a large amount of gradient maps.

That's a nice tutorial ranran, will give it a shot when I get my hands on PS again. Thanks.

Asking this here because it seems like a design related question.

For a pic like this, is that a texture used under the colour? Or some sort of brush?

Same with this; the grass at the bottom was a brush right? Also would the light be likely to be a gradient, or simply painted on?

*still clueless about graphics*

Looks like, for the first one, there was a texture layer added above the colors and set to a specific blending mode. (probably multiply)

For the second one, the grass does look like it was drawn with a brush. The lighting could have been achieved with either a gradient or airbrushing, it's most likely a gradient though.

Sorry if I didn't explain that very well.

Eh.. I think I kinda get it?..

About how long do you have to spend with programs like PS before you get a decent idea of how to use it? ^^;;

Spend some time doing some tutorials, as they'll introduce you to different tools and tricks. Most of the time however, it's about experimenting on your own.

Can anyone give me an idea of what sort of texture (if any), brush or effects were used to create this sort of effect?

And can anyone point me to any decent tutorials? The ones I've found are all kinda.. less than easy to understand..

On the bottom corner, it says "illustrated" so I'm guessing that this was actually something that a person painted (DP or digital painting) rather than a specific texture.

As for good tutorials, start off with ones teaching the fundamentals. The best one I've found so far is this one. It gives good explanations of the elements of a sig and it has fantastic examples too so give it a go

I was hoping if someone could help with this problem: Every image-uploader I have tried decreases the quality of my render. Which really is too bad ;(
Here's the image + psd:
Spoiler for Image:

EDIT
extra info: I saved it as PNG 24 (interlaced). Is there anything I am doing wrong? The render looks just fine in the psd file D:

I guess that's because the filesize of the render is over 4MB. A lot of image uploaders like to reduce quality to decrese file size. Hm, but why do you need to upload it to the internet, anyway?

If you really need to upload it to the internet, then I'd recommend using Dropbox to do so. It might take a while to sync due to the large file size, but there'll be no decrease in quality. For example, how's this?

That looks much better! (still not like the psd version, but WAYYY BETTER)
I did try it with a smaller sized image (1.6 mb) and still looked like crap.

I might consider using dropbox, thanks.

(the render was done for someone else, not for personal use)

No problem ~

Ah, right. You could always keep it as a .psd and just use the likes of mediafire (or even Dropbox ) to share it with them.

Can someone tell me how to import the frames that I captured in VirtualDub to Photoshop CS5? I'm trying to make an animated avatar and I'm new to Photoshop.

P.S. I'm following one of the tutorials that's here on animesuki, http://forums.animesuki.com/showpost.php?p=715538 Apparently felix is using Image-Ready. But Image Ready doesn't come with CS5 does it?

It doesn't, no.

I'm assuming you know how to open the video files in VirtualDub correctly, yes? If so, select the segment of the video by using the 'Mark In' and 'Mark Out' buttons. Then, export it as an 'Image Sequence'. Then, open the folder of images in CS5 as a single image (I'm afraid I don't remember how to do this). After that's done, select the 'Make Frames from Layers' option in the Animation window.

But, I've found that importing the video file directly into CS5 nets much better results.

What I do is as follows: File -> Import -> Video frames as layers.. -> Select a video (has to be either .MOV, .AVI, .MPG, .MPEG4, or .MP4) and choose the 'Selected Frame Only' option. Then, open your video file as you would to watch it, and note the approximate position of the scene you want, and then locate the scene in CS5, then use SHIFT + click to select a grey area on the bar that will be converted into frames and layers. The loading times maybe a little.. long.. though. >_>

Anyway, I hope all this helps.

The importing "video frames as layers" requires Quicktime. I downloaded and installed it but it still won't work. Says missing "QTCF.dll"
I guess that's happening 'cause it isn't Quick time pro and hence many options aren't available as well as this file.

Yeah, it does. I remember downloading it and running to the same error as you. I don't know how I got rid it, though. Hm. Try restarting or repairing Quicktime, because if that doesn't help, I don't know what will.

Are we allowed to post some resource packages too. If not, do we need a special thread for that? I thought posting some resources might help beginners as well
