Hehe thanks! But you dont suck, it just takes a bit of time and practice with drawing ...and LOTS of observation, did I mention practice? ;) lol like everythng then.

Anyway I had a little look at some of your work and your wallpapaers are very nice! You mention fractals - are those a plug in for photoshop or a method of working?

Anyway cya around ~trev

Thanks very much for taking the time to reply! I rember my graphics tutor showing me something similar once =) I think it was that and a bunch of other plug ins from "KTP" or some such, anyway thanks again ;)

Ps, ive been thinking a little and those patterns you have uploaded might look really good if you combined them with images/text in photoshop and played around with a few different layer modes...anyway just a thought.

heh, i wanted my art to be more straightforeward, i felt there was no need for meaningless lines and things of the sort, i did at one point implement some text that looked really nice, with a bit of line art beneath it, but there was no color u could have set it to, white took away from the richness of the other colors, if u would like to snag an image and show me how to add text i wouldnt mind, in fact id appreciate it :P
