    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...

    PSP7 does metallic effects, I remember that hl icon from that 3D icon site, think he may have used Lightwave to make em

    nice b***g there, m8... :)

    ok so here are some links:

    Screaming Banana : Chrome (with reflections!)
    Screaming Banana : Aqua (with refraction!)

    :D 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...!

    here's the icon, waddy. The original, and the one where I pulled the center out (leaving only the ring)...

    Hmm very fascinated that the mods forum has become an avatar forum:D
    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?:)
