Hi, I am a third year graphics student at uni. I have been doing some tutorials online, but I cant find anything to get the highend feel. I want to get the latest stuff. Any help would be great.

Do you mean high end as in difficulty or visual style?

Computer Arts has some nice looking tutorials, although I haven't done any myself recently.

I hi mate, thanks for the rpost
I mean both, I want to get cutting edge graphics, want new styles etc so I can add to my pallet. I am a third year design student so I get to get my stuff pumping.
I will try and find some stuff I like and post it.
I want a good tutorial on painting hot stuff using illustror and photoshop.

I get pretty irritated with Google searches these days. There are too many web sites out there trying to top each other's page rank, mining original content from other sites and presenting it in framed windows. I find that the best tutorials can be found by actually joining communities geared to that sort of thing, like cgsociety, highend3d, renderosity, etc. (Yes, they're all CGI-related, but you'll find dedicated 2D forums there as well.) Another thing: there's no real shortcut to cutting-edge design. Using one automated effect over another will get you a highly stylised but generic end result. The way to really achieving a high-end look, imo, is learning the principles of (real-life) art and design, and adapting them to the digital medium.

A 3rd year student ? Impressive.

I'd be really intrested to see some of the projects you've done in the last 2 years, you know, so I don't suggest anything you've already done.
