question and suggestion
« on: November 09, 2005, 07:36:09 PM »
question: what is the fon used for the apk symbol?

suggestion: it is semi confusing / redundant to have a navigation bar on the top and on the side of the front page.

Not a bit of rivalry. There's no need. I think there is plenty of room for as many sites as might wish to exist on the internet. How about, instead of digging up tired old issues, we look towards the future and see how we can improve this site and make it work better for the community as a whole?

Hey, like the sound of that. Hah!

So is Gameyy on here? I haven't seen him as posted yet. I'm curious as to how he did the masthead/logo exactly. I'm a designer/artist, too, and am always looking to expand my repoire of techniques. :) Gameyy, u about?

type out the letters in whatever font you'd like (or create the shapes yourself) then select the outline of them and use that as a layer mask for the blue image that he used (could be pretty much any city area type thing). then do a really wide soft bevel, and add a drop shadow. finally, outline a cityscape with grey and put it on the bottom. voila.

That is great, klayman, thank you. Sorry if this is so n00b, but how do you do a bevel? Is it as simple as a menu option in PS? I'm so used to working in vector-based progs that my PS skills are somewhat lacking. : P

click on layer then layer styles. here is a quick on i threw together (but with a very different text) now don't get me wrong, it is much easier to copy someone else than it is to make your own.
