You also need to further develop your skills in Photoshop/Gimp (whichever of the two you use…)…

Check out these tuts (especially the Scott effect tut…) and tell me what you think… :wink:

Allthough these tuts are Gimp specific, you’ll find out that most of them apply on Photoshop as well…


Definetely, try doing photographic textures and get to know your image program. Worked for me.
