Great job LeXX! I hope to see more of your work some day! Also, I'll try to get one made, and get it here!

Any requests?

EDIT: I just made a JO one, and I'll get it here as soon as I can put it on my web site (Theyre moving the server)! Also, when it gets here, you have to take it as it is. Its made in 2 o'clock in the morning and I'm tired, so I didnt wanna put alot of time into it...!

If anyone could make a Darth Maul wearing a suit or Tuxedo, and make it look as cool as leXX's up here! I will give you all of my remaining points.

Note: I can be very picky.

This is the one that got me a policy violation in DeviantArt... I quickly took down the other one that I did. They recently cleaned up all of their movie wallpapers due to "technical copyright violations."

Most of my stuff there is photography, so I don't get to bothered by it. I was sorry to see ya go, though! After that idiot went around snitching (he did other people the same way), DA gave everyone in the wallpapers->movies section a few days to clean out their own violations. They recognized that it was a norm more than just intentional plagerism. Personally, I see both sides of the issue. DA has it's third party policy but the wallpapers are generally benificial to the movie companies (ie LucasFilms) in that it's free advertising.

Oh... on the saber: sure, but you have to tell me how you did it! I fooled around with that thing for at least an hour and finally left it as you see it

It's kinda hard to explain, I'd really need to go through it with you during a chat. I'll PM you my msn addy and we will chat next time I'm on. (Just to give you the basics, you need to create a white line on a new layer and then select layer/effects/outer glow).

Here you go...

Thumbs up Wtf am I here? I updated my thread in the cantina, read it...

Hey, I just wanna complement leXX on her awesome work. That is awesome!

The other ones are cool, something I could do in a month or two (hey, I use Paint and Print Artist! Takes awhile to crop photos!)

Anyhow, cool. I put your paper as mine, hope you don't mind.

*** Kinda distoreted cause I have my thing on 800x600... Oh well, cool enough.



Like to read? Like fantasy stories? Like doing people you've never met in person favors? Then read and review my original movie screenplay! You will, you must. It is your destiny....

Check out the best shots of all of my collections along with some of my better attempts at artwork here.

I use Photoshop 5.5. Never felt the need to upgrade to 7, this one does everything I need it to.

Here's my other desktop... I created it in Photoshop 5.5. Perhaps this will be more to your liking

I agree with Kingpin that my wallpaper is too blue, so I decided to add some red to it and I must say, I much prefer it now...
