Mavis how do i make the color silver like your old halflife avatar mate ?
im using fireworks ?
hmm... no idea... I think i have Fireworks, I should install it tonight. I'll take a look for you.
But i too have to re-create the silver in that thing - I was gonna use PS6 and Eye Candy 4000, or maybe do it manually with plastic wrap filter and some other crap - saw a cool tutorial yesterday...
I have looked everywhere trying to learn how to make shiny silver , have you got a link ?
PSP7 does metallic effects, I remember that hl icon from that 3D icon site, think he may have used Lightwave to make em
Haven't installed Xenofex or Eyecandy, but here is me messing about...my apologies to Lactic
nice b***g there, m8...
ok so here are some links:
Screaming Banana : Chrome (with reflections!)
Screaming Banana : Aqua (with refraction!)
pretty cool tutorials there. Wish I had more time to play with it - although, I will have a whole week to mess with this stuff, at the end of the month...!
more aqua-style bubbles/text tutorials:
i think the method(s) above are basically how neowin's 3nd3r made their avatar. Would you like something along the same lines? Trendy - I was thinking that something different might be good, instead...
Thanks for the links Mavis, i wonder if thats how they make silver color using the chrome filter
Avatar : sure make it what you want , just make it look XP'ish mate
ill see if i can get silver working tonight
can you attach that Halflife Icon so i can download it to look at
here's the icon, waddy. The original, and the one where I pulled the center out (leaving only the ring)...
*sigh* I give up. Yer hopeless
i wont rest until i can make that nice shiny silver color
Hmm very fascinated that the mods forum has become an avatar forum
I'm happy with mine...but I agree it would be cool if all the mods had kinda the same avatar, but with different titles of course. Kinda make us a team! And that is what we are...isn't it?
That exdactly what I think it will be, an additional avatar displayed for moderators
Is there anything Xara Webstyle can't do ??
