After finally fixing my version of photoshop (the damn setting for the colur was wrong, i set it to use my montor and it worked...something like that anyway)
i finally had a good go at photoshop, and i like it...alot!

This is what I managed in fireworks, a raw render with a few bits.

i took that render, and went into PS, only had it about 2 hours, so i set playing about with it, using that render..

basicly i tested every tool lol, so i think i went a little OTT with the brushes lol

It looks good Nucleo, you certainly have developed a trademark style you use.

I just finished the second part of a photoshop CS course im doing. I cant believe the amount of things that Photoshop can do. Will post another time the great hints I got from them. Some will save me hours of cutting out time!! :)

Keep up the great work :)

it actually looks really nice except for the blue dots around it. I don't
think you need those at all, or at least not that many.

The best part of your image is the glowing elecrtricity of sorts. Now, if
you can remember how you did that to duplicate it, you should write up
a quick tutorial for everyone on that one effect. It's really nice.

Overall, very nice job on this. I don't think you went overboard at all, it's
just what you did isn't anything new and has been done a lot, by a lot of
people for a long time. I'd REALLY like to see you break our of this
abstract, techy 3D style you're in.

I said it before, saying it again: you really need to try some other styles.
However, with your new found love of photoshop, maybe that will be
sooner than later.

All in all, nice work sir. :mrgreen:

I second what UNFLUX said.

You seem to be really good at this stuff, you just need to break out of your 3d abstract style more. You are graphically type-casting yourself. Expanding your horizons and playing with styles is part of the fun of graphic design.

Overall good images though, esepcially for a first photoshop try.

BTW: I had that same exact color problem! My images always had a greener hue in Photoshop than they did as the exported .jpg (or whatever file), and I never had that problem until I got my new monitor. So I had to set it to my monitors color settings. I still get occasional color offness if I copy and paste images, and Photoshop is ALWAYS asking me what color definition (or whatever it says) I want to use for like every image I try and open up. It's quite annoying, I wish I knew how to fix it 100%.

wow, that is awesome. I am so glad you are using photoshop now, maybe we can have a tennis match one day when you get familiar more with PS.

But that is the best way to get familiar!

Nucleo, I love your 3D style, but like the others, you'll grow faster and improve your skills by branching out. Those wallpapers you showed me privately are a good example. Those are excellent. Perhaps experimenting with a variety of subjects and doing something along those lines will extend your creative abilities.

I would strongly suggest, with your talent to do some serious study into compilations. Take a look at just about any print media and Advertising is just full of comps. At this point you have plenty of time to develop a forte that is "marketable". I can see that your current work is what you like. But several years from now, you will need to do work that will make you money. That's how I would recommend you go about working it.

In the meantime, I thought you did an excellent job with photoshop. Nice work as always.

I'm glad you didn't take my comments personally, I just really want to
see you improve. The only way I see that happening is if you expand
your styles.

On a 2nd note, I agree with ATNO 100% -- GREAT idea to look at
magazines, brochures, etc. I do it ALL THE TIME.

IMO, your biggest weakness (even in the techy style you love so much)
is your typography, which I have said before. Studying what "the
experts" do is a great way to inspire your own style in this aspect of
design as well.
