Default My Blog

Hi everyone, I'm new here but hope to become quite active, I started to get into anime a few months ago and loved it, so I made this blog where I post anime fan montages from Photoshop and drawings I do myself, remember that I have been doing this a very short amount of time so currently it isn't very good but hopefully with time I'll improve, if anyone's at all interested in following the progress of a rookie then please have a look at my blog

Alright, I took a look at your blog and I like your first two montages, especially the Zoro one. The partitioning looks good to me with the full picture of him on the left side and the faded close up picture of his face on the right side. I have no experience with wallpapers and montages though (I actually want to learn a bit about making them), so I can't give you any meaningful constructive criticism. But you have potential in my opinion.

Hehe thank you very much Luxtra :3 yeah the Zoro one is my favourite ^^_ if you want some pointers when it comes to creating montages I could share my ideas with you to give you a general idea (: but regardless, I'm very pleased you like it excuse the drawings I did, I've literally been drawing 2 weeks maximum. ^_^

I'd love to hear some advice from you. And you're welcome. And don't worry, your early drawings look way better than mine did back then.

The main piece of advice I can give someone whose just starting montages is to use pictures with a lot of highlights and shadows for the background. For example, the background in my Zoro montage is a close up of a leaf all I did was make it black and white, at a deep green tint and use a gaussian blur, its as simple as that also, to get the shadow-y kind of thing with Zoro, you simply use the overlay option above your layer menu (: those are the main things I can think of if there's anything else, just ask ^_^

You have nice work and it would be nice if you could put some pictures up in your thread. It attracts more people then and you will get more comments. Anyway if you need help with putting up the images the mod for this section , Vegetto can help or if he is not about you can ask any staff or myself.
